Skyrim overhaul: Dawnguard

What does this mod do?

Skyrim overhaul: Dawnguard is an overhaul for many of the new creatures, monsters and npc's that were introduced with the Dawnguard DLC. This mod rebalances them, and makes things more challenging and fun by altering both the starting level and ending levels of them as well. Typically many npc's now level far higher or begin at a lower level, and now they have perks as well. This has been done in a lore friendly way as well to keep the feel of the original lore.

I made this mod as many variants of enemy do not level at all, and are stuck at one level. for example a vampire is lvl 1 and the next variety is lvl 7. with this mod the npc's and creatures will level gradually and constantly, but new variants later in the game will eventually get the new skills and perks given to them.


Vampire forces:

Volikar vampires: Now level with the player, until they level to up to 45, and have also had a 75 pt boost to health and a 125 boost to mana. Random volikar vampire have also been given perk boosts to spell damage or melee damage.

Lord Harkon; The lord of vampires now starts at lvl 10 and goes up to lvl 60. He has had a 800 boost to his health, 400 extra to magicka and 200 to his stamina. His health regen has been increased slightly as well.

Volikar Court members: have up to 700pts extra split between stats to suit their personalities and fighting styles. Added perks to magic, mages have new spells and warrior members have had 60-80% increases to melee damage.

Gargoyles: Start at lvl 7 and level up to 40, and have had a 5% health reduction.

The Dawnguard:

Dawnguard warriors: level from 7-45. 75 point boost to health, 20% increase to 1 handed damage and 20% added to their relevant armour skills.

Isran: Isran now starts at lvl 15 and ends at 60. Has had a 475 boost to health, and 200 to stamina.As well as the perks he started off with, his light armor rating, has been increased by 100%, and his melee skill with all weapons by 60%, as befits the leader of the Dawnguard.

Unique/ named Dawnguard members: Each named vampire hunter found at the castle now level like the rest of the dawnguard, but have had a 3-400 boost to their stats depending on their skills, and an additional 20-40% to their armour skills. Members such as Beleval who are ranged have had a 40% increase to their ranged damage, and melee fighters such as vori have had a 40% increase to melee damage and increased armour boost by 60%. Each is very a more unique fighter now.


wrathmen,mistmen and shades: These guys are no longer at a set lvl, but lvl up to 30 now.

Chaurus hunter: start at lvl 12 and end at 30, health reduced slightly.

Arch-Curate Vyrhur: Being a force of ancient evil, The arch-Curate now starts at lvl 15 and levels up all the way to 75. He has had a 675 boost to health and 275 points added to magicka. His spells and perks have been altered as well. increasing his armour and weapon effectiveness by 60%.

Gelebor: Although he will never fight, for the sake of balancing (or if you are a chaotic type who picks fights) he has
been scaled to match his brother.

New items: (W.I.P)
Light armour variant: A new set of light armour with the appearance of the heavy armour can be found by Isran's bedroom. It is still w.i.p though as the matching set perk does not yet work.


Load order and compatibility:

Compatible with anything that does not alter these npc's stats, perks etc etc.
Load order should not matter terribly. closer to the bottom of the list the better though.

Skyrim overhaul: Creatures (released)
Skyrim overhaul: Guilds and followers (released)
Skyrim overhaul: Dragonborn (released)

Arthmoor's 'When Vampires Attack' & 'Run for your lives' are a fix for a major source of frustration. Having the 'civillians' run away from vampires and dragons makes sense. The Overhauls seem to conflict with them. Iprefer the overhaul but really miss the running away...

So... No, I'm not asking for compatibility fixes etc etc but I hear you have this 'Civillian Overhaul' in the works, I would absolutely wet myself with joy if you were to include some sort of run away feature in there... Oh if not only the gaurds fought the dragons and vampires but the warlike civillians too! Yet the sensible, pacifist shop keepers ran away like good citizens and the children... think of the children (drenched kitten aura). It would be a wonderful Nirn if civillians acted accordingly to these brutal, random dragon and vampire attacks.

Give it some thought perhaps? ;)
