Description
Ever wanted to have the awesome armor of the Forsworn Briarhearts? well, now you can! This mod came out of my wish of wearing that armor. Initially, I managed to use the original briarheart mesh, but there are some issues with it, like some serious clipping on the kilt and the texture that covers the body...so I decided to take a dive in the modding business.

I saw the regular Forsworm armor, and how it looks so fine, so decided to modify it, leaving just the kilt and start from there.

Contents of the set

Now we have 5 different Forsworn armors to choose: One is just the forsworn armor bare chested (just like the fur armor), the second is the Briarheart armor without the heart (In case you need it for whatever purpose),third, the briarheart armor with the heart. Fourth, the ragged trousers with the briarheart torso. I kinda intended it for the mage types out there, and I included two versions of the ragged trousers: as light armor and clothes. And last, a version of the fur armor for the briarhearts.

All the armors are craftable through any smithing forge (it's under Misc Category), enchantable and you can improve them too. They are available for all the vanilla races, only for males (if used by females it will revert to the regular forsworn armor, besides, there are a lot of forsworn armors for the ladies out there) and...it uses the vanilla body mesh, so I'm sure it will not work with custom body mods. And they are standalone armors, they won't replace any armor of your game.

BTW, The set only includes the body armor, the forsworn gauntlets and boots in the pics comes from the Forsworn Banditry mod[skyrim.nexusmods.com]. I recommend it to have a regular forsworn set in the forge.

I hope you like it, any comments are welcome

Version History:

V 1.1 : Initial release
V 1.11 : Fixed a clipping issue on the ragged trouser outfit that ocurr when one equips 2 handed weapons or staffs. The weapon clipped through the back of the character.
V 1.2 : Fixed an issue with 2 handed weapons and staffs on all the pieces of the set, now they will be closer to the back of the player. Added a new outfit too: The briarheart fur armor. At first I wasn't intending to publish it since I don't see many of you playing as a bandit briarheart, but well...here you go.

By the way, My mod is also available on the nexus (nexus version)[skyrim.nexusmods.com]

Nicely done!

One change I'd recommend, though: add the Bare Chest Armor (without the heart cavity) to the LItemForswornCuirass and LItemForswornBossCuirass lists, so Forsworn NPCs will have a chance to wear it. (I already did this in my game -- let me know if you want the modified ESP file.)

I also see the Bare Chest Armor has a higher armor value than the vanilla Forsworn armor -- 38 instead of 26. Was it supposed to be that much higher?

Not a big deal though! I like having this in my game.
