Description

The Helm of Tohan is an artifact that appeared in a DLC for Morrowind. The Helm has not made an appearance in any other TES games, so I decided to bring this obscure artifact to Skyrim!

The design is based on the Morrowind original. I remade the mesh and texture from scratch, using the helm as blueprint (texture size: 2048 x 2048). Besides from the obviously graphic improvement, the model came out very similar.

In the Morrowind DLC the Helm got little to no background. We don’t even get to know who Tohan was. So I tried to establishing a bit of lore around the helm and the hero. IMO this makes the mod a lot more interesting.
Nothing of the background I created is backed up by or conflicting with TES lore. I’ve tried to keep this mod lore-friendly while still being able to create my own story within. The mod is cleaned with Tes5Edit.
The Helm is usable by all races! Modded hair might clip, but vanilla and Apachii hair was tested and confirmed to work without problem.

In defence the Helm is between Ebony and Daedric, but with the weight of Steel. All in all I tried to keep stats and enchantment balanced but useful without making it a super god item.
This mod version of the Helm carries an enchantment which gives:

- A boost of 75 pts to your magicka and 50 pts to your health

- 60% higher magicka regen speed


The helm can be tempered using a Quicksilver and Steel Ingot.

How to get it?


As with most of my mods you can get the artifact by going on a small undocumented treasure hunt. In Morrowind, legendary items were usually scattered throughout the world. They could be obtained by the player at any time (if you knew where to look), though they were usually heavily guarded. I want to return a bit of that feeling to Skyrim.

The Helm of Tohan has been laid to rest somewhere in Skyrim. Ambitious college student Godwyn has started a research into the mysterious man named Tohan. This has put him on the trail of Tohan’s Adamantium Helmet. Besides starting on a research book he’s keeping all his findings in a journal. That is, until he disappeared from the college...

Look for Godwyns journal and research papers in the Hall of Attainment in the College of Winterhold. He’s been analysing the Poem of Tohan for clues to the Helms location, and he’s on to something! Start by reading all his papers carefully. If you’re clever enough you might know where to go next!

Or if you’re not so clever, have a look at the hints below! (but don’t spoil it for yourself..)

Alternative versions


Skyrim Nexus Link [skyrim.nexusmods.com]


In Morrowind the helm did not have an enchantment. That’s why there are 2 version available for download on Steam.
There's an un-enchanted Morrowind version and an enchanted version that fits better to the lore I created (a spellsword helmet).

On this page you can download the enchanted version.
The unenchanted version is available:

Here

Use only one of these two versions! They won't work properly together and cause a lot of duplication!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Usage permission

Usually I don’t have a problem with people using my meshes/textures, etc. as resource for their own mods. I do have 2 conditions:

- You notify me by mail that you want to use the mod. You don’t really need to ask for my permission, I just want to know when and where my work gets use.

- You credit me as author of my assets in your mod.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Compatibility

This mod might conflict with mods changing the Hall of Attainment in the College of WInterhold. Try to load this mod after any mod that makes such changes. My mod doesn’t change anything to the college, it just adds things.

Hints


So you’re stuck and think my clues are too vague? Maybe one or two hints will help you!
Note that this section can spoil the entire hunt for you! Just check the first hint to start with, then another only if you’re still stuck! Keep it fun for yourself:)


Can’t make sense of the location description in the Poem of Tohan and Godwyn’s journal?

- Remember how Godwyn was suspicious of another college student? And how the last page of the journal was torn out? There might be a connection there..

- The torn page is under a bed..


I know the name of the cave but I don’t know where it is!

- Ok then, have a look[i.imgur.com]


Where to look in the cave?

- The Poem speak of a guardian with the key in his mind..

- Look for a cracked Skull

- The Helm itself rests in a watery grave..

- Yes, you can survive the fall down!

- Recognise this?[i.imgur.com]


Kudos to everybody who found the helm without checking the hints!

FAQ


- Will you make the rest of the Adamantium armor from Morrowind?
Making armors is tricky and it takes long. Right now I don't fele like taking on a project that size so for the moment the answer is no.

- What mods/lips/eyes/armour/enb did you use for the screenshots with the female character!?
No idea, I didn't make them. Nexus user AurianaValoria1 did the screenshots. I know nothing of the mods she used and you can best ask her.
I only know that the armor is her own retexture of ZeroFrost's Medusa armor.

In the previews the female wearing the helm, with the silver (steel) armor look's so cool. What mod did this armor come from? I would like to obtain it. Also the hem is very cool and I'm looking forward to th quest to find it.

Very nice. It seems that I can disenchant the Helm to learn the enchantment "Tohan's Fortitude" but then cannot select another item to place that enchantment on.
