Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: How do I start the quest?
A: Once you have completed both the main quest and civil war quest, talk to the guard in front of Hjarr's Gate.

Q: Where is Hjarr's Gate?
A: It will show on the map East of Riften once you have the mod activated.

Q: Can I still play the quest if Ulfric/Tullius is dead?
A: Yep! Assuming one of them is still alive, the quest will adapt depending on which side won the civil war.

Q: Will this mod interfere with any other mod?
A: There will probably be a conflict with any mod that modifies the border gate used in this mod.

Q: How do I start the quest if I cannot complete the main quest/civil war quest?
A: There are now "other" ways to get through the gate. ;)

Q: Will this mod conflict with Dawnguard?
A: Although there may seem to be a conflict between Dawnguard and this mod when looking at the world map, this isn't the case. The mod's content and Dawnguard's content are in different locations.

Q: Can I reach Fort Dawnguard through Hjarr's Gate?
A: Nope. The Skyrim map may make it look that way, but you cannot.

Q: The NPC's aren't talking. What should I do?
A: If you installed the mod before Dawnguard, then the NPC's from the mod will not talk to you.
-- To fix this:
-- 1. Deactivate the mod (If you already completed the quest, this will make you lose the bow).
-- 2. Load a saved game (If you see a pop-up about missing content, you're on the right track).
-- 3. Save the game.
-- 4. Reactivate the mod.
-- 5. The mod should now work correctly for this save file.

Q: Does this mod have anything to do with [mod/author name here]?
A: Probably not. This mod was made by an independent team that did not take content from any other mod.

There was indeed only one dungeon as it mentions in the description. :) The focus of the mod was breadth rather than depth. When this mod was released it was one of the first to include such a wide variety of content. Regardless, I'm sorry it ended up being unsatisfying for you, but if it's any consolation I may indeed add some more content to it one day. :)

Well, it fixed itself somehow.

Either way, this mod was VERY disappointing. Just one dungeon? I was hoping for maybe a sidequest, or a reward from the townsfolk, maybe even more than just the tavern. Like I said, very disappointed. Please expand upon it, it has a lot of potential. Maybe find the origins of the ethereal dragon?
Sherrif Jacket Aug 29 @ 3:02am 
Well, I don't. The only out-of-skyrim mod I have aside from this is Moonpath to Elsewyre (or however it is spelt.)

@dragonborn1950 I'm sorry. :(
@#SearchForKento Sounds like you have a mod that conflicts with this one. :/
Sherrif Jacket Aug 28 @ 6:27am 
I subscribed to the mod, completed the story + the civil war but Hjaars Gate isn't appearing

wish you made the mod more extensive
Ology  [author] Aug 3 @ 3:31pm 
I'm glad you liked it! I'll touch up the Dragon Lair if I update the mod again.

Oh haha, awesome. xD I was testing it on people in Whiterun and my companion. I was wondering why everyone was attacking this one citizen, then I was wondering why Serana was on fire. Interesting mod by the way. I think that the Dragon Lair could use more decoration though. In the current state it feels pretty empty. The first room is great, but after that it feels empty. Nice touch with the lava though.

It makes the target frenzy for a set amount of time, then sets them on fire! >:D

Hey, what does Sheogorath's Whisper actually do? Me and my friend couldn't figure out what "insanity" actually does.
