Elders of Skyrim

Elders of Skyrim
v 1.0

This mod makes the Elder race a playable race.

What it does:
- adds all 44 named Elder NPCs to the list of Elder race presets; in other words, you can play as Esbern, Arngeir, etc. There are
- 27 male presets
- 17 female presets
- and two custom presets
- Gandalf, a male, and
- Baba Yaga, a female
- fixes the 'invisible arm in first person' bug
- an edit to the NakedHandsOld ArmorAddon object was required to fix the female hands in first person
- updates mounted combat attack data for both the Elder and ElderVampire races
- provides custom skill modifiers, attribute modifiers, and a new racial power
- +5 to Smithing, Enchanting, Alchemy, Restoration and Illusion
- +10 to Speech
- -10 starting Health and Stamina
- +20 starting Magicka
- reduced Health and Stamina recovery rate
- increased Magicka recovery rate
- Skillful Mastery racial power
- once per day, fortify all skills by 15 points for 60 seconds
- starting spell: Calm
- Note: At the start of the game, your character won't have enough Magicka to cast Calm. You can use your Skillful Mastery ability to increase your Illusion skill enough to cast it. Don't cast it on Ralof or Hadvar as it will just delay the main quest.
- changes the name of the race from Old People Race!

Known Issues
None, but it hasn't been extensively tested. Vampire compatibility hasn't been tested at all. Please let me know if you find any bugs.

Mod Conflicts
This mod will conflict with any other mod that alters the Elder race and the ElderVampire race or the NakedHandsOld ArmorAddon (unlikely).

bluedanieru for the 1st person hand texture bug workaround.
TheOutlander for drawing my attention to the mounted combat issue for races that haven't been updated.
Tolkien and Ian McKellan for Gandalf.
MaryseDynasty for letting me bounce ideas off her.

Ha nice, I was disappointed by the lack of normal options in the normal races.

I have a vampire compatability issue.... neither male nor female will feed in the conventional way...they only way they can it seems is with a canabalism mod and the ring of namira and by eating the whole body...similiar to the nagaraja in the VTM universe.... while very interesting to play...not quite what i hoped for.....ive found no other issues with it and still a fun mod

I think that if you do the DB questline then there will be a bug with the chief, but I hink it happens to all modded races so I don't know if it can be fixed
