Really a very good job. Finally a house that isn't in Whiterun or Riverwood. This one is just where I needed it and it's a fun place to hand out with my five followers. thanks.

But in all *out of game* seriousness, LOVE this mod. Great work.

Dearest Ebony Soul,

I wish you well on your journies. I am writing to let you know that I have found your camp, and your blade, and that both have suited me well over the days. It took me some time (I must admit) before finding your journal and reading it by the fire of Soul Retreat. But please know, I am safe and sound and enjoying the marvelous home you have created.

Hmmm bummer... since I destroyed the Dark Brotherhood....

Hello everyone. Sorry it's been awhile. This was my first mod and I had some issues at the beginning;, to do with the Nightgate Inn cell. It works fine once you've completed the Dark Brotherhood quest at the Nightgate Inn. I recommend checking out my later mods because they are all bug free :) Thanks everyone for the feedback.

The last update for this mod has been in 2012... I doubt there will be anymore?

I do like the house, but i've hit some issues. The game is convinced that the hideout is actually the Nightgate in cellar. Balagog Gro Nobo is even there. And ownership of the weapons i've displayed has shifted. This needs to be fixed. I don't want to have to steal my own weapons back.

Err Ive hit a slight bug - I was most suprised to find Balagog Gro Nobo who was lodging last time I saw him in Nightgate Inn, He seems to be enjoying the Hideout facilities and is a nice quiet guest, just worrying in case he needs to be in HIS cellar and not mine for some quest, I hope not, its rather nice having folks over to visit & who could blame him for upgrading his quaters ;-)
