Description
Following the writings of a lonely scholar the dragonborn must dive into a library of books and pits his/her wits against forgotten legends and lore to assemble the clues that will lead to great wealth, relics, and knowledge.

Isolated to the far northeast along the coast of Skyrim a scholar by the name of Alaves Ravel has begun collecting and cataloging old myths and stories. These books only appear to contain lore, but after closer inspection and a clever mind one can begin to put the clues together that can lead to great treasures.
Embark on an adventure that works on researching dusty tombs. Resolving hidden clues buried within the pages, and putting your hypothesis to the test out in the open expanse of Skyrim. Unlocking mystery's and recovering lost treasures. See if the dragonborn has what it takes to be a Scholarly Adventurer.

1: This mod only requires Skyrim, no DLC required.
2: Currently 3 unique adventures are designed and ready.
3: Does not use the quest system, no way points or hand holding. get the feeling of real accomplishment when figuring out the clues.
4: Alaves Ravel's Home, Where all the adventures starts, is northeast of windhelm along the coast. See images for a screen shot.
5: Ideally i expect this to be a collection of adventures, if i create more i will add them as updates to this mod.

interesting mod but frustrating moments like getting out of the hole in the 22 quest and finding the unmarked cave in the red ring soldier's quest spoil the enjoyment

Great mod man, but you need to fix the way out of the 22 quest line. It was a pain to get out of the blasted hole. Keep making mods man I really enjoyed this one!

Nice mod, I like a bit of reading and thinking ,a big difference towards the questmarker driven vanilla game (don't get me wrong it's a real help not having to spend hours with looking for things :D)

I have a problem where I put the Boots of Blinding Speed on a mannequin in Lakeview Manor, and as soon as I enter the house I get blinded as if I'm wearing the boots. It's not a big deal, just a little annoying as I would like to have them on my mannequin.
Great mod anyway! :)

Also, I'd like to recommend cleaning up some of the grammar in Alaves' book. There were a few noticeable typos (such as "where" instead of "were" and "infact" instead of "in fact"). These didn't detract from your storytelling, but they didn't seem consistent with the work of a scholar.

Please don't take these observations as complaints, however. This is a great mod! Rated and Favorited! :)

Thank you very much -- I greatly enjoyed this mod! :) I hope that you add more adventures in the future. This was a tough but rewarding series of quests.

I encountered several minor problems:
1. I had a clipping problem on Alaves' front porch. My character fell through the floor, and my follower got stuck (needed to "moveto player" to get the NPC free).
2. I had a clipping problem in the Twenty Two cave. The table with the Arcane Enchanter allows the character to sit. My character sat on the side against cavern wall and popped into the void.
3. Items disappeared off their tabletop surfaces in the RRS cave. They were still available to be selected, but they disappeared from view.

This mod didn´t make fun it was frustrating. It needs too much sneaky sills and real-life background. Searching long hours some caves only to find another one is not my sense of beeing sucessful. hope you enjoyed showing us dump guys how clever you are. thanks for the loot.
