Update 29.04.2012
- Fixed a few minor issues.





The Hunter's Cabin of Riverwood is a free player home that will be available to all players, almost as soon as you start the game. The perfect mod for those who want a beautiful, simple yet functional house from the very beginning, whithout feeling that you're ruining, or going against the lore. (perfect for your hunter/ranger/archer character)

This is NOT the ultimate player house, for the simple reason that it's not suppose to.






=== How do I get this House? ========================

Simple, just go to Embershard Mine (the first "Mine" icon that appears on your compass when you escape from Helgen). Once inside the mine, fight your way to the treasure room (you can't miss it), there you will find a key named "Hunter's Cabin Key" and a Bandit Report (if your interested in the background story). Finish the dungeon and exit through the rear entrance, once outside just continue towards Riverwood.

The screenshots explains it even better.

================================================





=== Features: ===================================

- New player house/lodge, just outside Riverwood.

- Realistic background story ("Bandit Report" and "Hastily Written Note").

- Book Shelf, with room for 14 books (7 x 2).

- Lost of plants and flowers (Ingredients) around the cabin.

- Safe storage chests.

- Fully functioning Book Shelf, with room for 14 books (v1.5)

- Cooking Pot.

- Tanning Rack.

- Grindstone.

- Huntsman Bow + 100 Steel Arrows.

- Archery Skill Book.

================================================







OTHER NOTES:

- I'm using the Creation Kit so all the cells I've visited (while making the mod) is marked as changed. I can confirm that nothing has been changed in other cells that the ones I've mentioned in my description. I might try to fix this at a later date.

- I want this to remain a simple, lore friendly house, so I do NOT plan to add any Mannequin, Alchemy Tables, Forges etc.






Please comment, rate, and please tell me if you have any issues.

All feedback and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I love this place and the backstory behind it. I wonder who the ranger was. Was he Imperial or Stormcloak? What were his ties to Riverwood? Did he know Germund the Hermit? (my other fave house mod) He even became the adopted father of an Imperial Orc character who returned home from their escape only to discover his sad fate. Faendal hangs around there a lot, and from there my headcanon went mental. Thank you for the mod and the really handy bow, it's a lot more lore friendly than the usual freebies modders bung into their work =^.^=

This place is a really cool starter home, very nice placement of the key as well. But I only have one thing to ask is why not make the anvil outside the house work?

I love this mod! Started a new character recently and the key is MIA. Never had a problem before with previous play throughs. How can I fix it?

I Love Cabins (They're So Cozy!) So Having One Right Next To One Of My Favorite Towns Is Very Helpful! The Only Problem I Have Is Sitting Down At The Table, Or Moving Around, And Objects Are Bumping And Rolling All Over. Is There A Way You Can Make Them Not Spin Out At The Slightest Touch, Or Remove A Few? Cheers!

You nailed exactly what i think you wanted to do, my only thought is have you thought about adding a Cupboard? or barrel inside the house for the kitchen? For food storage, mainly meat.
