Northern Encounters v2.7d

Northern Encounters v2.7d

- requires official DLC Dawnguard

== What is Northern Encounters ?

Independed mod. Adds 118 new encounters (places, people etc) to the vanilla Skyrim, mostly to the northern areas of Tamriel, to the Sea of Ghosts*

* Sea of Ghosts is the name for the waters to the north and northeast of Tamriel

This mod adds to the Skyrim (amongst many other things):

- 300 NPCs
- more than 100 houses, ships/shipwrecks, castles, caves, ruins
- lots of unique items
- new tough enemies

All together there's 118 encounters, and many of them are linked to each other so that they can be thought as quests. Because they aren't actual quests, there's no quest markers or compass saying where to go next. This is part of the difficulty, how to find them all. This mod is for those who love to explore and find new encounters and content.

== Why this mod ?

In vanilla game most northern areas of Tamriel were really empty. Not much reason to go there. Now there's life and places to discover. Planned this mod so that it doesn't shift balance in the vanilla game. No superweapons, endless riches, megaspells etc.

== Where/how to find all the encounters ?

There's often some kind of clue. Some places that are harder to find live in rumors - Nightgate Inn is a place full of rumors, so head there. There's also a quest waiting (in memory of internet phenomena Eduard Khil a.k.a. mister Trololo).

Some tips:
- Head west from Northwatch Keep until you find a house. There's a diary under the bed, although diary reveals only a small portion of the encounters.
- Find a settlement called Highborg. Find out what happened to that settlement.
- Some encounters are located on the edge of the world, if you know what I mean...
- See if keeper of Nightgate Inn has some information to sell.

Lord Edward Dunmay, music playing on background is something I composed approx 15 years ago with Impulse Tracker (DOS-program). Didn't even name the song, it still goes with "under work" name that's cryptic letters and numbers :)

What is the name of the music that's playing in the videos?

не знаю как сам мод но ролик заинтриговал

To be honest, there's 2 out of 118 encounters that aren't lore friendly :)

When this mod was under work, trololo was quite popular phenomena. And when the singer died, I decided to leave trololo to this mod as respect for his work. Another encounter that may ruin (or not) feeling of lore friendliness is encounter made out of movie Downfall. There's lots of parodies about that movie in internet, and I just couldn't resist making something out of it myself.

Then again, there are encounters that strickly follow the lore and expand it. Lots of new NPCs and places are tied to the lore etc. So I could say this mod is lore oriented, regardless of those two previously mentioned encounters ;)

Was going to download, but the comments below me changed my mind. Thanks anyway.

I understand, this mod isn't completely lore friendly because some encounters are based on pop culture; movies, music or - as trolo - internet phenomenas. Some encounters are more of amuzing than serious :)

Sorry, I had to delete this mod because the whole trololo thing killed it for me. Other than that it wasn't bad.
