Adds a total of 15 sunken treasure chests and an underwater Dwemer ruin along the coast of the Sea of Ghosts, as well as 36 treasure chests to assorted rivers and lakes around Skyrim, for intrepid adventurers to find.

I made this mod for fun, and since there isn't much to do around the northern shores, I would like to share it. There aren't very obvious clues to where the chests are, but they are there. An abandoned ship wheel? Some weathered crates half-dug into the sand? Maybe it's just some loose pieces of wood on the beach. Are you feeling lucky? Give it a shot - grab some waterbreathing gear (or just kick off your shoes if you're an Argonian) and take a look around! You may be surprised at what you find.

I wasn't sure of where the limits of the map would be, so the chests in the sea aren't horrendously far from the shore, but I tried to make them at least tricky to spot. They have very generous leveled loot, including enchanted equipment, jewelry, and other items. The average base value is around 800 - 900 septims per chest, so that's quite the treasure! The landlocked chests, on the other hand, have slightly lesser loot, going for around 500-700 septims. All the chests are locked. Since the locks are leveled, if you don't have much skill in lockpicking, be sure to bring plenty of lockpicks with you!

As for the Dwemer ruin, it is very far off from the coast, so you've been warned. There's a map marker for it, so that should help things a bit.

Also, for some added realism, I wrote several notes for the sea chests that give some insight regarding how they ended up sunk in the bottom of the ocean. There is a total of 25, so hopefully they won't repeat too often. I can write more, if needed. The landlocked chests have no notes on them.

Unfortunately, since I wanted to make this challenging even to myself, I purposefully tried not to keep track of where the chests are, so I'm afraid I can't provide a specific list of locations. (The screenshots were taken straight from the Creation Kit). I think it makes the whole thing more exciting.

The chests respawn, so make sure to check them every once in a while. Have fun!

Compatibility List:
Unless there is a mod that happens to put something exactly where I did (which is a very low chance, seeing how big the ocean is), there should be no problem. Some mods that have been confirmed as compatible are:

I've had this mod for some time, and have yet to find the ruins. :( Can anybody give me a general direction to head for when looking? North East, North West, somewhere else?

The marker is indeed in the water, right in the middle of the ruin, so it will only appear once you discover it. Afterwards, if you try to fast-travel there, it will teleport you to the closest bit of land, which in my game is a tiny island not far from the ruin :)

is the marker off the shore in the water? Or is it on land i.e. directly on the beach coast? Or inland a bit a ways back off the coastal area?
