"Ancient Watchtowers, built by Skyrim's High Kings of old. Waystations, check points and defences, these stone edifices dot the landscape from east to west across Whiterun Hold. Nowadays they provide both shelter for tired travellers as well as hideouts for raiders and outlaws. Folk should be wary..."
Jo Mith - Traveling Merchant

Ancient Watchtowers adds 8 Nordic Ruined Towers to central Skyrim, specifically Whiterun Hold. Various factions hold these strategic locations, including both Imperial Forces and Stormcloak Rebels, while others provide a base for bandit raiders.

Big thanks to Aplestormy for the video.

Conflicts: None hopefully.

No, the admins at the Nexus and I don't get along, in fact they're a bunch of a-holes. I did have my mods on there but after someone copied my work and waived the fact in my face I got a little angry and called the guy a douche so the Admins banned me. The cherry on the top was they continued the host my mods for several days, even after I asked them to take them down.

Fighting in the right place is important but it doesn't hurt to have friends to back you up. Ticked off a pair of giants and ran to a tower. Like twelve guards were firing arrows down on them like crazy and I laughed and laughed and laughed as the giants got cut down. Rating up :)

The watch towers look really epic. I loved seeing them on the horizon, and the ones filled with bandits were great to test my new spell mod out on.

I ran into a situation in which I snuck in with my companion to help the WhiteRun archers during the archery duel with storm cloak rebels holding the tower (which seemed to activate when I crossed the bridge). After eliminating the storm cloaks, the White Run guards started firing at me thinking me a rebel! There may be an issue with the scripting here. I didn't fire on them and I had already talked to the mage and got my own dragon shout, so I was good with Jarl and presumably his troops. I think next time I'll just let them kill each other and sneak in and steal the loot. I think this should be tied to a quest that will end the respawn or allow another faction to move in on a semi-random basis (in keeping with any local storylines). I just started, so I don't know about the other events which may preclude a faction in the future depending on the location of a particular tower.

Don't want to repeat my self but; One question. If the Stormcloaks take over Whiterun, will the Imperials still control the towers in that hold?

I had a bad experience with the people who run Skyrim Nexus. I did have my stuff on there but I took it all down. I won't go into detail but frankly, in my opinion, they're dicks.
