1. DESCRIPTION
===============

After returning to Morrowind recently, I initially began updating my renovation of Beardo's Zelda Estate as it was showing its age however, it wasn't long before I decided to start on an entirely new project altogether. I've created from the ground up, an entirely new home in the same location, designed from the start to be both lore friendly and hopefully more "future proofed" as it uses original meshes and textures almost exclusively. In addition to helping the mod fit seamlessly into your game (as it will use your preferred mesh and texture replacers) it will also benefit from any applicable mesh and texture replacers released in the future. In addition, a quest is now required to obtain ownership of the home. I have taken great care and thought in the placement of each item and in the construction of the quest. I hope you enjoy it! I'm looking forward to hearing what you think.

Varo Manor adds a player home in Caldera and a quest to obtain it. To begin the quest, inquire about the latest rumors in Caldera. The quest is designed for characters who are at least level 10.

Inside Varo Manor, you will find a library on the second floor. Interacting with the inkwell named "Book Sorter" will sort and copy both your books and documents. Sorting and storage is provided for every book and document in the original game, its expansions and the Entertainer's plugin. Copying and placement is provided for the vast majority of books and documents. When a book or document is sorted the original is removed from your inventory and placed in a storage chest. Books (any document which is bound) are placed in one of three chests, organized by the name of the book. The first chest (arranged from right to left) contains books beginning with the letters "A" through "H", the second "I" through "P" and the third, "Q" through "Z". Documents (various notes and scrolls) are placed in the Document chest. In many cases, a copy of the book or document is created after sorting and is placed on a shelf inside the library or, in some cases, another location in the manor. These books are simply copies. While they can be read, they do not provide training and have no value. Please note, each book and document can only be sorted once. Also, be sure to use only the original books and documents if needed for a quest.

The alchemy lab in the basement provides sorting for alchemy ingredients from the original game, the Tribunal expansion and Bloodmoon. Interacting with the soul gem named "Ingredient Sorter" will sort all ingredients from the original game. Conversely, interacting with the soul gem named "Mournhold/Solstheim Sorter" will sort all ingredients from the Tribunal and Bloodmoon expansions. Interacting with either gem removes the appropriate ingredients from your inventory and places them in a series of jars, arranged alphabetically by ingredient name in rows from top left to bottom right. Unlike books, alchemy ingredients can be sorted as many times as desired.
