Sjel Blad Castle - "Soul Blade" Castle in Norwegian, is an expansive player home mod with numerous character perks including an armory, forge, barracks, sanctuary, living quarters, vault, trophy hall, stables, guards, humanoid/creature companions, and much more!

This is my first Skyrim mod and I would love/appreciate feedback and comments. My desire is to create an optimal experience for the player and I cannot do so without the thoughts and ideas of the gaming community.

If you can't tell by now I love this game and its modding capabilities. I am a very passionate gamer and modder with a bachelor's degree in video game art and design. My hope is that one day I will be doing this as a career.

If you like the mod please rate it! Thanks and enjoy!

It is recommended to back up all Skyrim save files before installing any game mod, so please do so. Once a mod is installed and running it is highly advised to never save your game while inside or around player-created content, as this can lead to game content caching. Basically, the game remembers bits and pieces of a mod’s content in your saved game which can possibly cause problems in the future if that same content is changed or updated in any way. Saving your game in the outside game world helps prevent this from happening.

i tried the mod out i love the detail. best castle i have ever seen. i can't see myself living in it because takes awhile to get anywhere in it. i guess i like smaller homes. well was fun to try it out. i like how there is alot of people in the castle people always make house mods but never add enough people you did a good job at adding alot of people.
although i would add like 3-4 people training in the barracks shooting bows or something cause i felt alone. i don't like feeling alone in house mods. i know there was a bar full of like 15-25 people behind me but that area just felt a litle bare.
