Vjarkell Castle

Enter Vjarkell Castle! Due to an unfortunate series of events this castle has lost its rightful owner and has fallen into the hands of evil. It is up to the dragonborn to slay the evil that shadows over Vjarkell Castle and claim the castle for him or herself. You can find the castle in the 'Forgotten Vale' which you unlock during the Dawnguard questline. Enjoy a small quest to unlock a merchant and hire all kinds of staff for the castle!



>Requires Dawnguard DLC<

>Requires ApachiiSkyHair if you're planning on hiring bathing girls in the castle: Download the 'Optional ApachiiSkyHairFemale_v_1_0' pack right here: !<

>Note: This mod has been developing on the Skyrim Nexus for the past couple of weeks. I hope you guys like it here as well! I'm not that much into the Skyrim Workshop, so I hope the upload went well. I'll do my best to stay tuned and answer all your questions if needed. For more info, see the above nexus link.<


I love the Dawnguard DLC. The Dawnguard Headquarters remind me of the castles of TES III: Morrowind and we get to see the Forgotten Vale, which has to be the most beautiful and scenic place in an Elder Scrolls game ever. I combined Dawnguard Castle and Ancient Falmer architecture to create what I think is a unique and fitting castle for your dragonborn and his companions to enjoy. Let me know if you like it or if you think something is still missing!


Castle Features:

-Combination of the awesome Dawnguard HQ & Ancient Falmer architecture Including a quest expanding on the backstory of the castle and unlocking a merchant, selling you all kinds of staff and goodness.
-Fully furnitured and functional player house, thought out & detailed
-Situated in one of the most scenic areas in any Elder Scrolls game to date: The Forgotten Vale
-Satisfies all your crafting, cooking, sleeping, drinking, storing, collecting, worshipping & bathing needs
-Safe storage (no respawning containers)
-Ancient Falmer Treasury including a real Snow Elf merchant from times long forgotten
-Including backstory and easter eggs
-As lore respecting as possible
-Infrastructure: Teleporting spells and discoverable map markers, wayshrine (teleport) room.
-NavMesh: The entire structure including dungeons has been NavMeshed. Your followers follow you everywhere.



-Enter the Forgotten Valley, climb up to the Frozen Lake and you'll notice the castle right away. Fight the Frost Giant to gain entry. The quest starts when you first enter the castle. If you want to see the castle but you haven't gone through the Dawnguard questline yet, use 'coc VjarkellCastleInterior'. But I wouldn't leave the castle if I were you, I'd consider it quite a spoiler.
-For the teleport spell: Check the bar in the private quarters. Also note that the unlockable merchant sells a tome that teaches you to teleport to the treasury!
-For the hidden areas: (1) Complete the quest, (2) check the Mara statue in the pantheon and (3) look beneath the pile of firewood in the living room.



-Eldiabs for modders resource. Besides that, his mods are awesome too and were an inspiring experience for me.
-Oaristys & Tony67 for modders resource. I used the treasury meshes. Thank you guys! You are awesome.
-Blary for this modders resource. The meshes are a welcome addition for kitchen designing. Many thanks.
-Everyone featuring this mod in YouTube videos. The effort you guys make leaves me speechless.
-Dedmihail for translating the mod into Russian.
-All the community members thinking with me and suggesting new features in the messages. Keep them coming!

Loving this mod!! Having fun exploring :steamhappy:

Also got the issue with the non existent maid but found a fix! In the console type [prid 1904d40f], which will set all subsequent commands to her. Then type in [moveto player], then [enable]. Obviously press enter after each command, and also type these in without the square brackets, I just put those in to encase the commands. Hope this helps!

Thanks for the great mod, I love the statues in the entry way!

Awesome mods, looks really epic, but how do you hire the staff? I already bought the teleporting spell books?

It's A Great Mod But It Is Kind Of Copying Sjel Blad Castle.

The castle won't show up! I've unsubscribed and resubscribed about a dozen times. It used to work fine.
