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.

is there any other quests like this because playing the normal skyrim questlines are really boring hen you can do the entire game in less than a day on the pc

Looks good. I'm persomally a really really big argonian fan so maybe make a quest that takes you to black marsh or just give to go to black marsh.

This was a fun dungeon and very pretty. It was a little short though, but the battle with the Dragon was great.
Rated Up.

Very Nice Mod! I don't see why someone should work for 2 years to make a huge world, to not even get paid for it. Everything is perfect, the voices, the design, the story.
