Sutvaka Fortified Estate

In the mountains between dragons, bandits, giants and the icy cold weather there is safety to be found. On a ridge defiantly stands the Sutvaka Fortified Estate between these dangers of the wilds. So drop the drawbridge and enter.

To get the key to the Estate you must travel to Fort Dunstad. In the Fort Dunstad prison, go to the top floor and look underneath the table. There is a strongbox on the floor which holds the key and an additional note. You could also try to find Sparrow. He is a high level character who you have to kill to get the key. Sparrow is optional because some players reported that he would not appear.

Sutvaka is a Windhelm styled player home located near shearpoint between Whiterun and Windhelm. It has a Player home, a tower with a view, barracks for your staff, a prison, secret chambers and an escape route through a tunnel system. In these tunnels lives a smuggler who buys stolen goods. To enter Sutvaka, just drop the drawbridge and open the portculis. The buttons for both are behind a pillar to your right. One in front of the drawbridge and one after the drawbridge.

This medium/large sized player home is equiped with all the things you might need. But for a lot is hidden away in the secret chambers below Sutvaka.To get to these hidden chambers, go to the basement armory where a button is hidden. This button will open the secret door leading to the chambers. However the basics for sharpening and improving can also be found in the barracks.

Here's a list of what you'll find:

- Gatehouse with guards.
- Guards patrolling the grounds.
- a couple of chickens
- a Chopping block.
- a tower with a view.
- Dog follower
- Stable with horses

Main house.
- a living room with a steward/merchant with decent amount of gold.
- a maid/Assasin follower who is so poor that she cant even afford her own equipment. however, she is very stealthy.
- a dining room
- a kitchen
- a basement armory
- Master bedroom
- a guest bedroom.
- Shrines for the Divines.
- And the secret door which leads to the secret chambers.

- The basics for smithing.
- Beds for your staff.
- Beds for free followers in the attic.
- a bard
- a door which leads to the prison.
- a door which leads to the guest quarters for companion hoarders.

- a portculis. On the basement side it can be opened with a lever. But on the tunnel side you have to use a pressure stone mounted on the wall near a candle (not perk sensitive, just walk up against it). Dont use the lever in the tunnels (ask Admiral Ackbar why).
- a room with a smuggler with a lot of gold. Door is also hidden and can be opened with a pressure stone on a wall.
- a secret exit.
- Ebony Ore veins.

Secret chambers.
- Plenty of weaponracks and mannequins

Q - How do i download?
A - Just click the subscribe button and wait at startup until all your mods are properly loaded and updated.

Q - I cant get into sutvaka.
A - To drop the drawbridge activate the top pullbar at the gatehouse. You should see 2 pullbars when you open the gate of the gatehouse. The top one is for both bridges. The bottom one is a backup in case the back bridge is behaving out of sync. To open the portcullis, walk across the bridge and look behind the first collum to your right. There is a button mounted on the pillar which opens the gate.

Q - I cant find Sutvaka
A - This one is actualy tricky and can be caused due to various reasons. A common reason is that you haven't let the mod manager properly load. Another reason can be a load order problem. So far i haven't found any mods that conflict with Sutvaka.

Q - I cant find the secret chamber.
A - Go to the basement armory in the main house (the room with 2 mannequins and weaponracks) and look for a wallmounted Chaurus head. The head is a button that opens a secret door.

Q - The vault is locked and i cant find the lever.
A - The pullbar is located up on a wall to your left. Use a torch because it is hidden in darkness.

Q - NPC's have grayface.
A - This is a Creationkit - Steamupload issue. The creationkit wont upload facemeshes to steam.
If it realy bugs you then you best switch over to the Nexus version. Nexus does allow Face Mesh and Texture upload.

Q - Can i move my family here?
A - Only if you use the Custom family home mod made by VitchRazor.

Also available on nexus:

Awesome house mod. The amount of followers and guards is incredible, i never have to go anywhere to find good ones anymore!

@ssgtroden. Its just a regular mod like any other, uploaded from the creation kit. So if you unsubscibe and delete the files it should be enough. I would try to unsubscribe first, then load skyrim, wait for the modlist to update, close Skyrim and then delete the file.
It sounds like the Workshop is not playing nice.

Don't know if this mod, which is a good one by the way, is one of those that make you keep it
no matter what or if I've just missed something. Unsubscribed through Steam, several times, deleted it from Steam file on my pc, and even deleted saved Steam games from my pc. Appreciate some help in getting it off my pc, for real. Still think it's a good mod by the way just decided I don't want to use it is all. Thanks again for any help. :>)

@Metalwraith031 Thanks for the swift response, anyways. Other than this one issue I absolutely love Sutvaka, it's just a shame it seems like I won't be storing my masks here.
Metalwraith031  [author] Aug 16 @ 7:03am 
@Aleyus. I have heard of that bug before but i have never been able to replicate it. Tthe script that those busts run, comes from the vanilla game. You are one of the few people to have this bug but i'm afraid that i cant do anything for you. The only thing i can say is that you can use the console commands to get another mask.
I will leave this here, just in case: uesp wiki []

When I place a dragon priest mask in the armory, if I try to retrieve the mask later, it's removed from the bust but not added to my inventory. I've been storing my masks here until I can collect them all and take them to Labarinthian, but now it seems like They'll be stuck here forever.

Metalwraith031  [author] Aug 10 @ 9:10am 
@BHSGorGoroth. It should be on the top floor of the prison tower. Underneath the table.
