Yes. This is an alternate "start" mod. Not a "blow up the MQ" mod :P

Though part of its function does allow it to double as an MQ delayer, so if you don't want to be Dragonborn, don't go to Helgen. Though, it'll be more like if you don't want to KNOW you're Dragonborn, since word walls and stuff will still work like they always do.

@Arthmoor, when i start as something diferent , i will still be the dragonborn?

There's an addon module on Nexus that does a city guard start. May not be the exact thing you want, but it's there. It's what was used as an example of how to produce addons for the mod using its API.

I think you should consider adding a start were you are a city gaurd.

@Arthmoor,
Thank you for that quick and new, start into this wonderful game!
I read a lot of the comments on all the most popular alternative start mods.
although the general impression is discouraging (consensus: buggy) I decided to give yours a go and:

IT WORKED FLAWLESSLY!

And it was good, quick and had a lot of interesting choices! Well done and Thank you!

To be save, I disabled all mods not connected to gameplay.
except for Yakuza Tattoos, which worked!
Flaming red Hair, which did NOT work (but then never has for me, don’t know what I do wrong?)
And now I am of to discover "Build your own House" -the location is finally just right- and build it!

P.S. am new to this sort of community: Is there a site to learn how to us steam properly? Like writing a review. Thank you.

Arthmoor, you should switch Mara's statue to Some kind of Azura's statue, cuz ya know, Azura is the Daedric prince of fate. (Sorry for bad english) Btw, nice mod

thanks you have really helped hopefully it works
Arthmoor  [author] Aug 28 @ 11:43am 
That means you've got mods that have screwed up the destination points in some way. That's the only way you can get the transfer blocked so you'll need to figure out what mods have done stupid stuff and deal with that.

A Version that is Compatible with DLC's but not Required would be nice for those of us who do not have DLC's or pay for Mods
emerald10005 Aug 14 @ 5:11am 
@below, Hey but you fucking know you need to fucking pay for fucking mods, right?
Psyduck Aug 10 @ 2:45am 
hey, you all know that there is a non-dlc version available on Nexus, right?
Agunenz Aug 9 @ 2:38pm 
I'm heartbroken! This was my favourite mod, because it made starting a new game so much easier and nicer, but I can't use it anymore because I don't have all the DLC's ;_; Please, make a non-dlc version.
The jackal Aug 9 @ 7:09am 
please make a non-dlc version!

Whenever I try to choose an option to start with, after I go to bed it just wakes me up where I was standing like the "Escape the prison" option, and idea why it's doing this?
Strangicus Aug 7 @ 10:35pm 
oh...well shuks...
Arthmoor  [author] Aug 7 @ 10:21pm 
You gave your email to Valve, who is arguably far more dangerous to you than Nexus will ever be with that data.
Strangicus Aug 7 @ 7:42pm 
I am aware of that, but did you read my comment? I suck at manual downloads. Plus i need to give my email info to create an account so i can download it. AND THAT IS A HHHHHUUUUUGGGEEE NO NO!!! INTERNET 101 FOLKS!
lewislemitar2 Aug 7 @ 7:30pm 
@Strangicus You can manually download the older version and install the mod through Nexus Mod Manager.
Strangicus Aug 7 @ 7:24pm 
Hey mod maker, can you please release an older version of this? I went to nexus and i can't manually install mods! Last time i tried to do that i nearly got rid of all of my data on my PC.
Starbound hype Aug 7 @ 5:35pm 
This is glorious.
Strangicus Aug 7 @ 3:24pm 
Because i really don't beleive in buying DLC
Strangicus Aug 7 @ 3:23pm 
I don't want to buy all the DLC just for one mod to work!
shaney0507 Aug 7 @ 12:49am 
it kinda sucks how you have to buy all the dlc to get this
Markoos Aug 6 @ 1:04pm 
It keeps crashing right after the bethesda logo at the start. help pls
Roman Wilson Aug 5 @ 4:08pm 
And I am stuck in the prison...
Roman Wilson Aug 5 @ 3:58pm 
It is stuck on, "Use the empty bed to begin your new life."
Roman Wilson Aug 5 @ 3:49pm 
@arthmoor It was my only alt start mod active...
Arthmoor  [author] Aug 5 @ 1:49pm 
@Billy: You have another mod that's interfering with it. Possibly another alt-start mod from the sound of it. Make sure you're not trying to run two of them at once.

@Robots: Nope. Nothing I've heard of it blocking the quests for the HF homes. If you aren't using one of the HF start options it shouldn't have any affect on things at all.
Godamn Robots Aug 5 @ 12:21pm 
Is there any known or reported issues with this mod interfering with any hearthfire homes? I do not have any other mods that alter quest objectives but I am unable to build Lakeview Manor because the "use the workbench marker never goes away and the foundation lines never appear in the area. I can continue to "build" items on the benches and nothing shows up. Disabled other mods I recently installed but they are all armor and follower mods. I don't have flocks installed. I never got the letter from the falkreath Jarl..... just frustraighted....
Roman Wilson Aug 5 @ 10:38am 
Help, please?
Roman Wilson Aug 5 @ 10:26am 
It keeps putting me in a sitting position in the air...
Roman Wilson Aug 5 @ 10:14am 
It won't let me start...
Wendersnaven Aug 3 @ 3:20pm 
You Sir, are a Legend. A spectre of the Nine. Thanks for a great mod!

I have a bit of O.C.D. that interferes with my roleplaying. I always found it really hard to accept the story as vanilla tells it- you're sentenced to death, for what!? RPG freedom is really nice to have. I have to get the story 'right' in my mind, and it doesn't make sense that a person who has the heroic legend of Dovakin thrust opon them, would suddenly become a master thief or murderer. While I always just kill the Dark Bros, I like the Thieves Guild quests. Now I can start there with an actual life as a thief, then through a series of events, turn it around to become a hero! I have seriously not had this much fun with the game since my first run through.
Valdoor0626 Aug 1 @ 7:46pm 
youll have twice the subrscribers also
Valdoor0626 Aug 1 @ 7:45pm
