Armor in this mode were made with Warcraf/Warhammer FB style as an inspiration, so, it is completely not true to the DA:O art style. If you find yourself offended by it do not download it and do not complain just give unendorsement.

Description:
===================

It's known that while having Arcane Warrior mage spec, DA: O does not have armor suitable for it. In vanilla, if you choose to be an Arcane Warrior you are restricted either to Reaper's Vestments (but if you choose to do so you can easily forget the "warrior" part of arcane warrior spec name, because you look like you have just escaped the circus), or standard heavy/massive armor, that has nothing to do with the fact that you are mage. Thank gods for the modmakers whose work brings us many Arcane Warrior armors sets. But I have always found the massive armor models that were used by modders on most occasions, unsuitable for my characters. So I decided that I have to make my own armor set and a friend of mine told me to post it here.

This set is suitable for elven and human mages.All set parts are retextured and have custom icons. Helmet, gloves and boots if worn together, give the wearer a set bonus of fatigue reduction and willpower. If you find stats too/not enough powerful you are free add the ones you like better via The Winter Forge

First mod I've posted to public so comments/suggestions are welcome.

====================
Installation:
====================
1. Download the .dazip file.
2. Run Daupdater.exe (It is in your program folders "dragon age origins\bin_ship" folder) or use DAModder.
3. Install The Ivory Tower v.0.1.dazip
4. Run DA: O, if you load the saved game, armor will show up in your inventory, if you starting a new one disable The Ivory Tower in your DLC menu, create character, enter game, save and exit game, enable The Ivory Tower mod in your DLC menu once again and load the game.
5. Have fun.

====================
Uninstallation:
====================

1.Uncheck the module in the in-game "Downloaded Content" menu.
2.Than go to your \ My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\AddIns directory and delete the_ivory_tower, nightfall_bloom or both folders.
3.After this is done go to \ My Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\packages\core\data and delete .ERF files that are called like folders that you previously deleted in you AddIns directory.

If you use DAModder just uninstall via its menu.
