Morrowind Armor - Netch Leather


This mod adds craftable 'Netch Leather' armor to Skyrim, a type of armor which saw its original appearance in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind[].

Netch Leather armor was traditionally an exclusive craft of the Dunmer of Morrowind and Solstheim; they used Netch Leather because on Morrowind it was much more plentiful than ordinary leather, and the armor itself is designed not only to protect the wearer during combat but also provide comfort and protection from the elements.

This mod adds an entire set of balanced, lore-friendly light armor, including several variations of helmets, cuirass, bracers, boots + shield, and more protective Netch Boiled Leather helmets + cuirass.

Netch Leather armor offers slightly more protection than standard leather armor and is also lighter, and Netch Boiled Leather armor offers protection equal to Elven armor.

Netch Leather armor is fully compatible with all races, sexes and standard body types.

The helmets show long hair at the back, and the gauntlets show claws on beast-race hands.

The helmets also come in 4 varieties;
1) full helmet - the head is covered by the helmet, and the face is covered by the mask & goggles.
2) open helmet - the head is covered by the helmet, but the face is exposed with the goggles resting on the forehead and the mask pulled down under the chin.
3) half helmet - the helmet covers the head but there are no goggles or mask.
4) face cover - only the goggles & mask without a helmet, can be combined with other helmets that do not cover the face.

Circlets can be worn over all styles of helmet.

The helmets with goggles & mask worn over the face offer protection from ash storms in Wet & Cold - Ashes[].

A few named Dunmer NPCs and occasionally Dunmer bandits in Solstheim can be seen wearing Netch Leather armor.

Netch Leather armor uses Standard Definition textures.

This mod requires Skyrim v1.9 and the Dragonborn DLC.

You can craft Netch Leather armor at any Forge, and the recipes can be found under the 'Leather' category; crafting regular Netch Leather armor requires the 'Steel Smithing' perk, and to craft Netch Boiled Leather armor you need to have the Elven Smithing perk.

Netch Leather armor requires Netch Leather and Netch Leather Strips to create, and Netch Leather to improve at the Workbench. Helmets with goggles require a Chitin Plate, and the shield requires an Iron Ingot.

Netch Leather can be obtained on the isle of Solstheim, where it is sold by blacksmiths and traders, and can also be harvested from the corpses of slain Netch.

Netch Leather is also sold on the Skyrim mainland by 2 merchants; Revyn Sadri of 'Sadri's Used Wares' in Windhelm, and Brand-Shei from the Riften marketplace. Both these merchants sell all the materials required to craft Netch Leather armor, and will stock the armor from level 10+.

Netch Leather Strips can be crafted at the Tanning Rack from Netch Leather.

Netch Boiled Leather armor requires Netch Boiled Leather and Netch Leather Strips to create, and Netch Boiled Leather to improve at the Workbench.

Netch Boiled Leather can be crafted at Cooking Pots from Netch Leather and Netch Jelly.

Initial upload.

Some areas of the armor may not accurately display blood splatters or snow/ash powder.

Over the next several weeks I plan to create and release several more Morrowind-themed armor sets not previously seen in the Dragonborn DLC or my previous Morrowind armor mod.

Credit also goes to Volvaga0 for inspiring me with his mod page design and layout.

I am working on a mod that tries to use more lore friendly equipment to the beginning of the game so you're not dressed in rags do you mind if I feature your mod in it?

@IWSC if you just want the goggles go here:

Maybe you could add JUST the goggles as a standalone piece, like without the mask or helmet? That'd be pretty cool

@ Adam... You DID read that you need to unlock steel smithing to craft it, and elven for the boiled armor. Right?

@Adam_646: I cant help unless you can be more specific / descriptive about your problem.

It won't work. I've subscribed but I can't craft it. It's annoying me.:steamsad:
