Allows the player to become essential, just like essential NPCs.
Current Revision - 1

This mod will grant you a lesser power called "Essentiality Toggle" which can be found under Magic->Powers. Casting this spell will allow you to become "essential." This means that instead of dying in combat you will fall to the ground and hobble around for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds you will stand back up with 25% health.

If you wish to become un-essential (meaning: you want to be able to die again) simply cast the "Essentiality Toggle" spell again and you can resume dying in combat.

Please see the video attached above for a demonstration.

June 6 - Revision 1
+ Original upload.


All of the source code for my scripts should be included in the .bsa in case you want to use them. They are well commented.
Everything that was added under the hood begins with "TRRB" to make it easy to find with the CreationKit.

@ItsMeRyanB Great mod but can you make a third option?, when you bleedout on the ground and when you get back up again with 25% health if you get hit for a second time theres a 65% chance of dying? it makes it so you can have a couple of chances of getting away/healing if your lucky but still be able to die if your unlucky? please msg back if you dont understand thank you. Id rather you sent me a msg rather than leaving me confused thank uoi any way XD

@Gata de Batalla - until it is fixed (if it can be) consider that being so weakened as to fall in battle, one can only hold weapon(s) and(or) shield and all such powers require too much concentration to maintain hold in mind. :)

I have only one small problem with this mod. Everytime I'm downed my spells and shouts/powers are automatically un-equiped.

Is there a way to avoid that? I hate pressing Z to shout and stand there doing nothing :3

I guess this would make sense since the dragonborn is required for EVERY quest and the world is kinda screwed without him/her/it.
