Description
===========
Adds Bethesda-style splash screens for Tribunal and Bloodmoon. Also adds a few more Morrowind splash screens.


Details
=======
This mod adds several splash screens to the game, done in the style of the Bethesda Splash Screens. There are several screens each for Tribunal and Bloodmoon, as well as a few for Morrowind.

One screen for each game (MW, TB, BM) has splash screen with the game's/expansion's logo (cover art on the box) and an appropriate, brief text (taken from in-game books) in the Daedric font. I chose text that I felt encapsulated the general Main Quest in the game/expansions.

You can remove any of these that you don't want.

===Morrowind===
+ Fire Atronach
+ Frost Atronach
+ Storm Atronach
+ Guar
+ Text translation: "But it is said that Nerevar will come again and cast down the false gods" - Nerevar Moon-and-Star ( http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:Nerevar_Moon-and-Star )

===Tribunal===
+ Centurion Archer
+ Durzog
+ Hulking Fabricant
+ Verminous Fabricant
+ Imperfect
+ Goblin Officer
+ Text translation: "Defy me and you will know what it is to stand against a god" - The Battle of Red Mountain ( http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:The_Battle_of_Red_Mountain )

===Bloodmoon===
+ Bears (regular, Plague, Snow)
+ Grahl
+ Horker
+ Riekling
+ Spriggan
+ Wolves (regular, Plague, Snow)
+ Text translation: "Let no man say before a witness that the Hunt has not been called" - The Posting of the Hunt ( http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Lore:The_Posting_of_the_Hunt )


+ No .esp needed

+ Thanks to Nzdawghaus for his splash pack resource (see the Credits section of this readme), without which I wouldn't have attempted to make something like this.


===================
Downloading the mod
===================
- All downloads contain an appropriate readme

+ SSA_Bloodmoon: contains Bloodmoon-themed splash screens

+ SSA_Tribunal: contains Tribunal-themed splash screens

+ SSA_Morrowind: contains Morrowind-themed splash screens


Incompatibility
===============
This mod will conflict with another mod that contains a splash screen with the same exact name as any of the splashscreens in this mod. If that happens, simply rename the splash screen, there will be no negative effects from doing so.


Known Issues or Bugs
====================
There shouldn't be any. Splash Screens are in the correct dimensions (1024x1024) and format (targa, 24-bit). If you are looking at them with Irfan View (or any other image-preview program), they'll look kind of squished, but that's how all of Bethesda's splash screens are supposed to be. Your game will stretch it to the correct dimensions.
