College Visitor's Pass

In 1 collection by Jokiros

Allows you to enter the College of Winterhold without joining as a full member.

Have you ever been bothered that to finish the main story, or just to use any of the facilities of the College you had to be a fuly fledged member of the guild? Bothered that a warrior can join just by shouting at the floor?

Well I was, so I made this mod.

This mod changes the conversation with Faralda so that you can bri- donate money to the college to help further its research goals. This of course brings you special benefits, such as the ability to use the college's facilities without being a member. You will not gain access to member exclusive services such as skill training.
This allows you to complete quests that would otherwise require you to join the College to complete, despite being otherwise un-related to the College. Some quests however do require membership, I do not have a definitive list however.

Whilst doing this I remembered how you could become a member by proving that you are the Dragonborn, I was bothered by this and turned that into another way of gaining a visitor's pass. The shouting to get in route no longer makes you a full member of the college.

To become a full member after gaining a visitor's pass you must go back to Faralda and either persuade, or complete the test.

Compatibility issues and other minor strangeness:
Any mod that edits Faralda may be incompatible with this mod, I have not got any of those myself so feedback is welcome.

Any mods that add new people to the College who acknowledge your membership will, of course, not acknowledge that you are only a visitor.
Ancano, and other base game people, will occasionally mention you being a new member etc. I don't mind this because it is reasonable that they would mistake you for a member instead of a visitor. Adding new lines to change this would be terrible and removing existing lines may introduce more bugs. Certain people within the guild have their AI halted until you join fully, Ancano, Mirabelle, Tolfdir and the three students. These guys rely on you moving through the quest to start up, so they will just hang out where they start till then.

only thing i dislike is you deactivated the shouting entrance tests member ship because shouting is using dragon magic or a spoken spell so i dont see why you would do this anyway good idea for thieves assassins and warriors to be able to enter this way instead you should maybe add a class to teach members to use basic shouts like fus or yol or feim you know

@Cry there is no female librarian,,,,,,the only one that works in the library is the orc lore keeper.

Last time it didn't work for me. I'm gonna re-subscribe now. Should this mod be at the bottom of the mods list?

Great Idea. This kind of anoiyed me too. While you're doing college stuff, you might consider editing the diolog with the guy who runs the library (forget his name) regarding your seach for the elder scrolls. I was archmage before I did the main and dawngaurd quest lines. the convorsation went kind of like this:

librarian: thank you for saving the college archmage.
me: I need to find an elder scroll
librarian: why the hell do you want one of them for?
me: bitch I'm the fucking dragonborn!

"later in the convorsation)

me: I'm looking for a moth prist
librarian: A moth prist? why are you looking for a moth prist?
me: mind your own buisness!

Does it work with that Dawnguard mission?

I like this mod. I also hated having to join the college just to ask a few questions. I like being a nord warror not a magic throwing mage. Thanks Jokiros!
