not often do you see them out of their own climate. but he seemed to not want to leave his dirty lil cavern.. I was able to get utterly close to him before he almost swiped me.. and back into the town I saw another fox.. he seemed confused. and then later a bunny.. whom also pranced around very confused.. Im not wondering whats going on, on this island.... I have a strong feeling these animals are effected by something and are dropping like flies.. its a no wonder these people dont have stock. they would probably all die.. they have a few horses.. they looki good. no hunting for these people I guess.
36. before I left for home, I remembered that a man told me to visit Azura's Shrine. that it was beautiful. and a site to see.. but I couldnt find it on my map. nor could I see it anywhere on my travels.. so sadly I had to leave with out the pleasent visit to a lovely shrine.. and thus ended my travels...

35. The land here doesnt have much for wild life. I wonder how these people survive... I saw a fox my first day. but come night time I saw him again. he ran one way. and then back again. then back the same way again.. and then collapsed dead right below the hill I was standing on.. I was a little nervous about that. he ran himself exhausted.. or died from disease from the island. I wasnt sure. and I was starting to get more scared.. while out in the vast land I only saw 2 deer.. a male and a female... the male was eatting grass.. and the female was dead on the ground next to him. I also saw one sabre tooth tiger. a white one..

32.(also there's a guard tower that says it leads to ember island. but since Im already on ember island this message could be misleading. like it might take you to the other side.. maybe it should read.. watch tower or something.. )
33. I went ahead to visit the famous Garddard's home.. not much of a set of talkers those folks.. and again I could hear a sleeping dragon in his home. I was nervous.. maybe it was underground.. maybe on his roof? I wasnt sure where it was. and I never saw it the whole 4 days of my vacation there...
34. I tried checking my map multiple times.. but again and again my map seemed to not match up to this island.. i couldnt mark any locations, I couldnt discover anything locations.. and I think my ink might have dried up.. maybe the air is too dry here. for ink anyway.. maybe they have a more fluid or oil based ink. I wasnt sure of that. ill have to look into that some other time and pick up more ink before I head home. as now mine isnt any good.

29. the door way almost tricked me.. to mountain pass. made me think I was about to step into another void of magic.. but then it went away and I was on the other side of the door safe.
30. there seemed to be a smaller island.. I think. connected by a bridge. I wasnt sure. there were a lot of bridgees. but on the east side of this, I saw some more baren land.. near the water.. but it also looked like it could have meant to have been this way.. so I didnt think too much on it.
31. I found the barracks.. I thought this could do with a sign. i almost missed it. i went inside to find that it was bare.. VERY empty.. this building also had a door to the left of it... that had no interaction available. I couldnt even jingle the handle open.. nothing.. another odd door.. I was starting to think that maybe they just walled up these doors so they could put new doors else where and takeing these doors down might make it an eye sore. I wasnt too positive on that theory though.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:11pm 
27. I came back to the burnt corpse.. to read the letter better. because I didnt take it.. see if maybe I missed something. I noticed their land. a large part of it.. on the east side.. no grass.. so baren. so sad.. but reading the note again.. still no help. it read as if this lil shack wasnt their origonal home.. so I gave up. the isalnd was too small for me to NOT bump into a dragon.. so I assumed there wasnt one.
28. I came across the mountain pass.. finally. I had passed this door way before.. inside the mountain pass I could hear what sounded like a sleeping dragon.. but I still saw nothing.. when I got to the bridge.. I saw rocks in the shape of umbrellas... how cute..very good craftmenship to have that blended into the scenary soo well..
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:11pm 
it read something about a dragon and if they left it alone, it would leave them a lone. it told me where it was and I even updated my map.. but I couldnt find it anywhere.. I got so turned around trying to hunt this fein down.. I was dizzy. but I did bump into a few bandits which I out ran and left a lone.. silly little things.. my ride is too fast for you haha.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:10pm 
26. I then decided I was going to venture out into the land a lil bit. I saw a good stretch of it past the bridge. I thought it would be a great idea to open my magic up and conjure my tiger rides.. so out they came and off we went.. I stumbled on a weak little shack with a fire place. I stepped off my ride and walked over to this fire place's mess.. 2 chairs thrown about. and then I saw it.. a couple of burnt corpses.. oh the fricken smell was horrible. I dont know why I didnt notice the smell before.. maybe the excitment from the new land.. I thought.. well. they wont mind now if I go peek inside their hide away home.. so I did just that. I saw not too much in there.. but came across a little note to the athorities...
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:10pm 
24. somehow.. my attire got stuck in the door when I went to leave the dungeon. I got stuck between the door and the plank of wood thats normally there (before a load screen).. I could hear the other guards walking around. but with all the yelling.. no one would help me.. they probably thought I was just another prisonor yelling.. I tried again and still.. the same resaults.. so... I was forced to use a lil magic (and go to a last save.)
25. I wanted to see what it looked like behind the jail so I peeked.. it seems to be a large plot of land.. looks like they will put something there soon.. maybe a garden?.. graveyard?.. I noticed that not many people have died here.. or maybe a new home.. or a place for some livestock. I havent seen much of that around here yet.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:10pm 
23. The jail was small and nice. but empty.. HOWEVER there was a dungeon so I took myself there. I really wanted to see what types of criminals this place gets.. in I went... the room was bare.. ... I saw two imperials.. which was fine by me. I was for the stormcloaks.. well actually I only picked them because of their fancy blue gear.. I dont think either of them are in the right.
but these imperials were NAKED... just standing around.. like nothing.. I was shocked they werent changed up.. in my town, they chain them up. torture them.. blood is everywhere.. this place was clean. and only had one torture device that didnt look like it was used.... ever..
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:09pm 
21. there was a room downstairs to my right. a nice opened area when I had first entered the home.. it owned an adorable little dragon and preist... when I got closer, I saw a blue glow.. so pretty. but could be dangerous. I wonder why it was there.

22. upon leaving this home, I thought.. this place could also use a nice banner.. just to be a friendly recognizer.. and moved on to the jail .. which I also thought should be signed or bannered.. people should know where the naughties go

18. Inside this Homestead Mansion, there was a door in the cellar. it needed a key... it was a nice grey/blue looking door. I couldnt find the key anywhere. so I assumed it was meant to stay locked. so I left it be.
19. inside this building there seemed to be a leak. water was falling from the ceiling in the basement.. and I was capable of collecting a few bottles of health potion from it too.... I thought... maybe the fountain of youth? upon turning. I noticed the treasury room as well. that was interesting as well..
20. there was a caged up blue glow upstairs.. with a vapor of a small pillar inside. I wondered with it was for. but alas, I couldnt go in and be nosey.. so I left it alone.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:08pm 
15. I saw a quick something funny off to the north west side of the island.. a large sliver of land that just juts out of no where.. I assume it was just more magic. but couldnt find the nessassity of this trick and moved on.. Im seemingly always finding something new on this land.
16. I found a second doory weay on the homestead building. blackened and unusable.. on the west side.
17. upon further inspection of this Homestead building, I noticed there were 2 buildings when looking at it from behind.. so I went in between both the buildings to somehow end up inside a paper like building where I could SORT of see inside and could see out. this was new.. more magic I assumed.. maybe to keep it from prying eyes. I wasnt sure. but when I kept walking out.. I was out, I couldnt turn back around to look inside once again unless I went back around again. which I did not want to do, I may upset someone.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:08pm 
13. I found the saw mill. another reminder of home. I noticed a building next to it that owns a black door way.. it goes no where. nor will it let me in.. there 's no door there. I thought....must be more magic and just left it be. these people seem to mind their oown business but they dont butt into yours. so I felt a lil bit at ease and not too much worry since no harm has come to me just yet.(not greta's home)

14. I notied another door just the same as before. a blankened door on the north side of the Homestead Mansion. near some nice beeshives.. that didnt seem to be all that active either. good thing, Im pretty sure Im allergic to the sting..
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:07pm 
something in side my said.. just do it.. go where they go... and i did.. it was a frightful heart attack but I ended up on the other side.. I was safe. so I moved on. hoping to not have to do that again... I stayed straight then turned at my first right. and there it was again. this magical void of land.. I went up the ramp to head towards the void.. I was still nervous but went with my last gut instinct and made it to the third part of the mine.. I found a hole at the end of the mine... I carefully went down and found my way back to the entrance. I didnt have to go through those voids again.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:07pm 
12. I've stumbled on their mine.. Ember Mine. cute entrance. reminds me of the mines from back home. I cautiously went in... thinking MAYBE outsiders might not be allowed in there.. but I was. so I went down. I ventured a lil ways in. going straight down from the entrance and only taking the last right turn, I stumbled greatly on their secret... its in the mine. the land isnt there. but the miners and guards walk no through the sky like it is.... I was so beyond scared.. how did they do this? what powers do they possess.. should I leave and tell My land of this secret? ..
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:06pm 
10. along my travels through out the town, I continued to stop at all the guards. to see if they had any history on the island or had anything to say really. they didnt have much to say, not at all, maybe they werent suppose to do any talking. just do your job.... and eirilly I started to realize, they all sound alike as well.... all male guards. no females much anywhere.. I was getting a bit uneasy.. but continued on my journy.

11. between stopping at each guard, I also tried talking to the townsfolk... they didnt seem much up for conversation either.. I was worried. what is this town holding secret from outsiders.. why wont they even give me a pleasent hello and maybe a small conversation. these people are sick, or twisted, or just plain rude. im not feeling very welcomed here. but I cant leave just yet.. its still so exciting to see a new place.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:06pm 
8. there was a building, the first home on the north side of the island, with out a name.. as if its abandoned. no one lives there... its a wooden door, it opens to a wooden wall.. and I can close it.. such a weird place for a useless door I thought.. so I closed it and moved on to a little farm.

9. this farm had a door. but it went no where nor could I open or close it.. it was odd to see a farm with workers and no place to rest their heads.. just a building with no access.. Im not wondering if its just for looks to make the guest such as myself, think they are living good.. alas, nothing I could do about that.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:05pm 
5. I visited a man's house named Thorn.. when I left his home, there was a birch tree just floating there. I left that area immediately incase it was enchanted and meant for defence.

5. I ran aound Thorn's building to find his Armory. its small and pretty. he seems to have a cage in his room. which is also locked.. i wonder what he keeps in there and if there is a key around that I might have been able to get. I was just there visiting before I decided to cause any trouble. so ... I didnt see it in plain sight.

6. The items in his home made me think he just might sell or create.. I tried asking but he didnt seem to have much to say..nothing at all really... hmm..

7. So I ventured out of his Armory and looked back at it a bit.. thinking.. this place also needs a banner or sign.. to recognize his establishment.. and then walked on to see that Ember Inn could do with a sign as well..
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:04pm 
3. going further around the Archive inside.. it seemed rather bare. there was only one guard in there and left a lil after I arrived.. which was fine, but I kept hearing a bear. he sounded HUGE... but. you cant open the door to where he is. the weapons rack isnt filled with beautiful weapons from history and what not. there is no key to that bears unnamed door. the archive.. seemed.. under construction. so I left. also it could do with a banner of announment.

4. I ran back through the docks to go over to the right hand side of things. and found AI's all over in the water. just swimming.... is this normal?" do they enjoy a frequent swim. I thought it silly since its not customary for our guards in my home town to take a dip in uniform.. this town seems more leisure.. which is very nice to see.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:03pm 
2. when I got there, I looked around the docks and ventured off left towards what I found out, was the Archives. I thought that this could be awesome. I go in. right away i became a little kid when I noticed the glowing mushrooms I only heard about in my mother's stories and the bright blue rocks all over the ground.. I jumped in.. sadly. there was no way out.. I was stuck in there... I think the window should either be smaller, or add a few more rocks so the player can just pop back out.. maybe even a ladder. Im positive others will jump in.. if I did it, I know others' will.
QueenBee Jul 12 @ 4:02pm 
Im not sure if you still update this mod or even work on it. but I needed to tell you that this island is soooo beautiful.. i would love to keep it. and I actually have an amzing computer. but the fear of my computer crashing still gets me.. so i limit my modding.. HOWEVER. id like to inform you on some of the forgotten flaws on your islnad .. you may or may not have noticed.. that should be addressed if you want people to continue to enjoy your mods long after you are done with them... if not.. please take this mod down. its just a beatufiul deadly tease lol... ok.. so.. its a LOONG list.. here goes.

1. when i first logged in after loading the mod, I traveled straight down to the docks. I heard there was a new ship availble for transport. I was so happy that there would be a new location to venture too. however when I got there. the red guards were fighting the solitude guards.. it was just a mess.. but some how the ship still took me there.
Dangatang Jul 11 @ 1:34am 
I think i may have a problem. There is no one on the island who wants to sell me items. I dont know if its something I did or if this is just how the mod works, pleas let me know.

AidanAFisher Jun 7 @ 3:27pm 
is this mod active?
aestheticwave May 17 @ 8:15pm 
game crashes when i fast travel to it
and it crashed when i was on the boat when i walked there
davidjlbrownca66 Mar 20 @ 3:29pm 
Just for everyones benefit the guards on the ship did not show up until I was alone. when I had a companion with me the guards were not there to take me to the island.
so if you are having trouble send your companions away and try the docks when you are alone it should work then. Cheers.
davidjlbrownca66 Mar 20 @ 3:25pm 
not bad but there area lot of rendering errors with mats not matching up properly overal though i see great potential keep it up and i look forward to the fully finished product. :)
Doge!!!!! Oct 19, 2015 @ 1:04pm 
I follow exactly where you say and there is no boat only a boat near the Lighthouse that just has more assholes who attack me for some reason

RedEagle1995 Oct 17, 2014 @ 2:50pm 
hey dude the gold mine and the goddard mansion and the homestead (player home) is ok and all the the problem is the merchants none of them would sell you stuff and the bank isn'
t operational and well the INN is ok but i dont really think anyone would use it though but in the event NICE Job!
RedEagle1995 Oct 15, 2014 @ 11:32pm 
I like this mod i mean it details pretty much everything an i think im gonna give it a try!
Kiwi Jul 27, 2014 @ 9:11pm 
good idea
cstevenson2014  [author] Jul 27, 2014 @ 2:30pm 
not to my knowledge. Just run it w/o any other mods enabled to diagnose what's causing the problem.
Kiwi Jul 21, 2014 @ 10:15pm 
i for some reason cant even run it without crashing. Is it incompatible with any mods?
Nebula Jun 28, 2014 @ 8:16am 
pretty good i must say
BombasticPres Jun 27, 2014 @ 1:48pm 
Bandits mate, BANDITS! D:
I mean, theres a war going on. Guards are limited = Bandits
SkyGuy55 Jun 24, 2014 @ 11:06am 
some suggestions for future updates,
- enimies
- a more extensive greeting
- all keys to the locked doors in the house are on a bookshelf or something
-quests*
Whimpering Dragon Apr 26, 2014 @ 8:21am 
Some ideas for future updates:

- Guards say guard-y things, instead of just "what is it?"
- People won't engage in dialogue with me beyond the simple "aye," or "huh?"
- Add enemies
Richter Matthias Apr 24, 2014 @ 4:53pm 
Any enemies on the island or in the water?
molson Apr 24, 2014 @ 11:32am 
I played the war as the stormcloaks and the were patroling the dock and when the mod was installed ember island guards and stormcloaks were fighting i ended up helping the storm cloaks but i have insane bounty in ember island.

Looking for collaborators...
Sabre Wolf Mar 27, 2014 @ 4:14pm 
Ok, that has th key im guessing....
cstevenson2014  [author] Mar 27, 2014 @ 4:10pm 
there was a zoo in the original house mod "Homestead". check it out
Sabre Wolf Mar 27, 2014 @ 3:46pm 
ok, thanks, also, the doors that are locked in the house, are they in progress, or is there a key?
cstevenson2014  [author] Mar 27, 2014 @ 3:19pm 
the house on the island is free and open for use.
