Castle Volkihar Redux Skyrim Special Edition IS NOW LIVE on Bethesda's new Mod site!

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!

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.

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 are spread throughout the castle.

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's for your Dragon Priest Masks and Dragon Claws. A bust of change your face can also be found in the North Tower's bathing area. One will also unlock the Daedric South Tower through a quest (The Forgotten Tower). It provides uniquel display's for most all Daedric items found within Skyrim including Dragon Scrolls.

Knowledge of teleportation magic has been added from the soul cairn. This teleportation wing is known as 'Teleport Tower West'. It is located in Valerica's Tower. It can be found by using any of the teleporter pads found in each wing of the castle. 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.

*Several dungeons have been added. A Gargoyle Lair, secret cave and a few vampire lairs which must be cleared out to inhabit.

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 combined. When Molag Bal bestows his chosen with a blessing, he wants them stronger than any foe in the known planes of existence. These shrines are found in Harkon's Cathedral off of the Keep & inside the Temple of Molag Bal in Valerica's Tower.

*The Undercroft will be upgraded into a flea market with added 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.

Known Mod Conflicts

Ah ok thanks for letting me know.

I think it’s the new naming system , when you change the name of the character in se , it creates essentially a new character in the character save. When I use the bust and then load up the quick save I just made my hair style and beard style revert to what it was before I used the bust
When you change the name through the counsle the changes stick

Nicalad I don't know. So far no one has reported it as conflicting. If you run into issues let me know as in the modding community our subscribers are our testers.

Is this mod compatible with Hasildor player home by Ellanoria? (I butchered her name didn't I)
DiGiTaL CLeaNeR  [author] Mar 11 @ 12:54am 
@darkone, are you loading a save from before you made those facial changes? Otherwise I have no idea. Shouldn't be happening.
TheDarkOne1047 Mar 7 @ 8:53pm 
hey so question, how come when i use the bust of complexion to chnage my features. when i die qand my game reloads or i start up my game after using the bust my hair style and facial hair revert back. is there a way to fix this?

Thank you for replying to my question the hood is the day hood if that makes any difference if I find a way to fix this I will be sure to let u know to help future players but the mod was quite fun the organ is pretty creepy reminds me of one of the old Dracula Movies I actually like this mod quest better than the actual dawnguard dlc vampire quest there is just more to it when I walked in the room with all the manniquins I walked up to them because they were in weird positions then they moved and scared the living daylights out of me good touch kind of like the glitch for the
hearthfire manniquins that just walk around cool but creepy gives the feel that there is more to the old castle then meets the eye excellent work this is more than likely my second favorite mod and favorite quest mod this one is only second to the Inigo the Brave Follower mod if you have it you would know he is hilarious and says the most randomest things if you haven't you should get it

@Ultimatestarwarsfan101, the quest with the draugr is covered in the FAQ here:

As far as the robes that shoudln't happen unless there must be a mod conflict.
Ultimatestarwarsfan101 Mar 5 @ 1:05pm 
Hey I have a bit of problem and I hope you have an answer I kind of screwed up a little I built the draugrs and used all the armor of servitude and then later after doing the other quests I got the quest to do it but now I have no more armor I even used the ones on the draugr already that were dead in the catacombs not even that no more draugr will spawn when I do it help please oh and quick question when I put on the robes and the hood the hood does not appear on me and I can put another hood/helmet on and the hood does not uncheck like it is on its own slot but yet the npcs have both the hood and robes
