STORY:

Castle Volkihar has been occupied by vampire's for centuries. Prior to Harkon taking over the castle, his brother Brunar was the head of the coven.
Harkon raised an army and finally after a decade of fighting stormed the castle and locked his brother and his coven away in the family tombs. After acquiring Auriels Bow you must find the coven and set them free by awakening them from their long hibernation
Vampirism was created by Daedric prince Molag Bal. You will find new apparel and magical influences from him throughout the Castle.

Alright, thank you for replying quickly and for this amazing mod.
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Sep 21 @ 7:07pm 
Hi xsnowmagex, no it is not, but you can still play this with Hearthfires installed, you just can't move your wife into the hearthfires homes.

However I have a version half done in the works. I just dont have time to finish it. It has a few bugs I have to spend a ton of time figuring out. It will be probably xmas time before it gets released.

This is my favorite house mod by far. I was wondering if it is compatible with "Hearthfire multiple adoptions - Now with custom home support for kids and spouse" on nexus.
