Ancient Watchtowers

"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.

Any feedback is appreciated. If you subscribe and enjoy please rate the mod!

-Removed Clutter from some Towers.

Uhm, apparently, Stormcloaks occupy the tower near Whiterun, and now the guards are in an eternal struggle of 9000 arrows, Stormcloaks shooting guards, guards shooting Stormcloaks, I have no problem with dead Stormcloaks, but it's odd that they'd fight eachother like this, or more importantly that the tower has Stormcloaks in it.

Hey Cyberglum, I made a Real Shelter Patch for your mod and wanted to speak to you about sharing it here on Steam. I'm not sure how to PM you etc but if you want to add me on Steam we can chat....or i will add you. Thanks :)

It appears to be 'slightly' incompatible with the mod "Tel Nalta II" on the nexus ( specifically the watchtower on the island in lake ilnalta - they both occupy the same space, more or less.
Apart from that, I do like this mod a lot!

Hey cyberglum, any chance you can upload this to the Nexus? I prefer to get stuff from there.

When attacking the towers, followers and conjuration cannot fid the pat up the stairs, so they get confused and just try to hide. Otherwise, it is awesome.

Thank you for NOT charging us for using this excellent mod. However if a donation system was in place that would be OK. If it was donations, I would give.

This is a super mod! More reason to explore, and well designed towers (I dig that you included 'railings'). The tower Stormcloaks and the Whiterun guards go at it all the time, but I collect their weapons and break em down to steel ingots, so it is a plus. I have a character with a permanent camp set up next to one now. It was intended to be temporary, but I liked the location so much I kept it.
