Description
Now the size of a city, Castle Volkihar Redux is the ultimate vampire kingdom for the true overlord of Skyrim. All blocked portals now go to new places. New towers, quests, buffs, armors, weapons, followers, amenities, crafting and more. Dawnguard DLC required.

* Must have the Dawnguard DLC purchased and installed
* Install anytime but castle won't upgrade until "Touching the Sky" (get Auriels bow) is completed
* Works fine with the Dragonborn DLC (not required)
* Does not matter if you choose vampire or Dawnguard side
* No 3rd party tools or mods needed





Prior to Harkon's rule his older brother Brunar was the head of the Volkihar family. After becoming vampires a power struggle began. Harkon created a powerful vampire army, stormed the castle and magically sealed Brunar and his small band of loyal coven members away in the family tombs.
If you are able to acquire Auriels Bow you must find the coven and set them free.Thus begins your own journey not only to restore the castle beyond it's former glory but to reign as the supreme overlord of Skyrim. You can now build your own army of Draugrs, Gargoyles and Vampires.




*Did you finish Dawnguard and wonder why Castle Volkihar didnt upgrade?
*Did you think the blocked portals would open up into a real homestead?
*Then look no further, this mod does exactly that and more, read on!

ADDED FOLLOWERS:
Once the castle is yours Draugr guards and a new vampire coven members loyal to you will begin to patrol the castle inside and out. Some new followers are gained through quests. Additional Draugr sentries can also be added through a quest.

CRAFTING:
Castle Volkihar Redux not only offers access to every kind of crafting station in the game, you will be provided with a special 25% bonus when using them! There are new primary crafting stations such as a Forge, Alchemy Tables and Enchanting stations. A Wood Chopping Block can be found on the upper tier of the shipyard and Cooking Pots. 4 unique Blood Cauldron/Buckets to brew blood potions (2 human flesh = 5 blood potions) two in Valerica's tower (lower level kitchen) and the torture chamber (top level), in the North Tower in a closet and the in the East Tower (in the Alchemy Bazaar foyer).

DISPLAY AND STORAGE:
You will find mannequins, weapon/racks, chests, display cases, and much more throughout the Castle. You will want to visit the North Tower Vault which is specifically designed for the safe storage of your items. Display your Dragon Priest Masks and Dragon Claws in the North Tower Vault. Even change your face. Special display's for Daedric artifacts can be found in the South Tower which opens up during the quest 'Forgotten Tower'.

FAST TRAVEL:
*Valerica has brought her knowledge of teleportation magic from the soul cairn and a special teleportation wing has been added to the castle known as 'Teleport Tower West'. It is located in Valerica's Tower. It includes two teleportation networks, one for the castle internally and one to six major cities throughout Tamriel. A spell tome that teaches the spell 'return to castle volkihar' can be found in this very wing.
*The Castle'sr Shipyard and it's boats have been restored. You can use them to travel to the shores of Tamriel.
*There is a portal to the Forgotten Vale in the castle tombs found during the quest 'Fortify Volkihar'.
*Two new travel markers are also added. One in the Shipyard and one on the East Tower balcony.

INCOME:
5,000 gold monthly income when the quest 'Port of Call' is completed.

NEW TOWERS:
Daedric South Tower (daedric artifact displays), Valerica's Tower (Formerly the ruins), North Tower, East Tower, *West Tower, Gargoyle King's Lair and the Undercroft (now a flea market).

SHRINES:
Two Molag Bal shrines are added to the castle. But let it be known that the blessing from Molag Bal trumps all those other lesser daedric blessings all put together. When Molag Bal bestows his chosen with a blessing, he wants them stronger than any foe in the known planes of existence. One is in Harkon's Cathedral off of the Keep or Guild hall the other is inside the Temple of Molag Bal in Valerica's Tower.

TRADERS AND MERCHANTS:
The castle now hosts every type of vendor found in the game. You will find a Blacksmith at the Shipyard, an alchemist trainer in the East Tower Alchemy Bazaar (foyer) and many more inside the Undercroft.

Robes of the minions of Molag Bal. These highly enchanted robes help his minions carry out his desires throughout the plane of Tamriel and beyond. The robes (crafted in Coldharbour the realm of Molag Bal) are 2nd to none for mages, warriors and thieves. The robes are also craftable at the shipyard smith under misc should you want to create un-enchanted versions or to cloth new initiates you bring into the fold. A custom vampiric horse can be found in a small stable near the shipyard docks, two ethereal swords are found during the quest 'It's Good To Be King'.



*Axe of Disintegration (deletes corpses! A MUST HAVE!)
*Robes of Molag Bal

Welcome to Castle Volkihar Redux comments section. I hope you enjoy this mod. Please read the following information. Your rate up is sincerely appreciated

Deleting mods after making a save is the #1 reason people experience issues with Skyrim while using mods. So, either roll back to a save from before you installed the mod you deleted or don't delete mods! Instead you can safely "disable" mods in the first splash screen on game open under "Data".

2nd reason is mod compatibility. Installing mods that change original Skyrim game files that other mods rely on. When this happens the next mod you install that looks for these now broken original files will seem to break your game.

Conflicts may take days, weeks or even months to show up as an issue.

You must have the Dawnguard DLC purchased and installed for this mod to work. Have a great weekend. I hope you like the mod.

I'm sorry to ask because you probably said it already but, where's the castle? I can't find it... :(

Hi Taylorswift42461, yes it does. The entrance to that room is near the conference room with the large blue fire in an oval table. Go through a door around the corner and you can't miss it. There are also closets that have secret rooms behind them. A bone dragons head adorns the wall above the main coffin.

Hey, does this place have like, a main bedroom, and is so, where?

I have had no problems with followers. I like how there are many people living in the castle, hanging out in the undercroft, hanging out at the docks, the characters from Dark Shadows and Addams Family. Really great.
