WARNING: Playing this mod may scare children and unstable adults. Side effects include, but are not limited to, being scared of the dark and looking over one's shoulder.

Description
This mod adds custom armor, weapons, a unique stallion, re-textured steel horse armor (if you have the official DLCHorseArmor mod), historical book with a map and 4 unique types of creatures that guard the legendary equipment. For more details, purchase and read the book called "Lost Paladin of the Divines."

Paladins Rejoice!

Location
The book called "Lost Paladin of the Divines" can be purchased at the First Edition in the Market District of Imperial City.
Once you obtain the unique equipment called Heaven's Wrath and Heaven's Fury, you will be able to buy lesser non-enchanted replicas at The Best Defense and A Fighting Chance.

Details
If you defeat the final guardian, you will be rewarded with a Paladin's Stallion as a gift from the Divines.

If you defeat the final guardian and have no infamy points, you will be able to open the Crypt of Vralen Averos and will be presented with a series of questions to customize the Heaven's Wrath Armor set.

This 2nd reward is an enchanted heavy armor set called Heaven's Wrath and includes:
- Heaven's Wrath Helmet (Open or Closed is your decision)
- Heaven's Wrath Cape
- Heaven's Wrath Cuirass (Male and Female)
- Heaven's Wrath Gauntlets
- Heaven's Wrath Greaves
- Heaven's Wrath Boots
- Heaven's Wall (Heavy Shield)
- Heaven's Glory (Longsword - With or without golden-colored flames that give off light)
- Heaven's Messenger (Claymore)
- Vralen's Journal Note (clue to the location of Heaven's Fury light armor set)
- A vendor at the Best Defense in the Imperial City will craft and sell a replica set of the heavy armor.
- A vendor at a Fighting Chance in the Imperial City will craft and sell a replica set of the swords.
- A vendor at the Divine Elegance in the Imperial City will craft and sell replica capes.

If you read Vralen's Note titled "Heaven's Fury Note," you should be able to figure out the location of his original and light armor set called Heaven's Fury. Once you find the ruin described in the note, it's just a matter of time searching for the chest called "Chest of Vralen Averos" which includes:
- Heaven's Fury Helmet (Open or Closed is your decision)
- Heaven's Fury Cuirass (Male and Female)
- Heaven's Fury Gauntlets
- Heaven's Fury Greaves
- Heaven's Fury Boots
- Heaven's Gate (Light Shield)
- A vendor at the Best Defense in the Imperial City will craft and sell a replica set of the light armor.

Other items include:
- Official DLCHorseArmor texture replacer for the Steel Armor.
- Several colored crystal ball lamps located in the same ruins of Heaven's Wrath.
- Valuable and rare collector portraits of Vralen Averos and Galandra Laora.
- Four levels of Werewolf creatures that act as guardians for the armor. Each breed is visually different and leave behind new and varied ingredients. The deeper you go into the ruin, the more difficult they become.

The unique weapons found during the quest are equivalent to Daedric weapons.
The Replica weapons found in vendor shops are equivalent to Elven weapons.
Heaven's Wrath armor is equivalent to heavy Daedric armor.
Heaven's Wrath replica armor is equivalent to heavy Orcish armor.
Heaven's Fury armor is equivalent to light Glass armor.
Heaven's Fury replica armor is equivalent to light Mithril armor.

Install
Please see the Readme file for details.

Incompatibility
None known. Most everything are newly created items added to Oblivion. There were two leveled necromancers that were removed from the ruin in order to preserve the atmosphere.

Known Issues or Bugs
- Closed-Faced helmet may have clipping issues with beast races depending on length of snout. This can be minimized or even eliminated if you use the supplied EGM helmet files as described in the install section.
- To get the best result out of the Reflective Armor, enable HDR and install the official 1.2.0214 patch to enable the best reflection effects.
- To obtain the armor, you need 0 infamy. Due to popular demand, this will be relaxed a little in the next version. See RELz thread for details.
- This mod changes the color of light spells from a default of green to gold which is used with the flame sword light effect. Future versions will undo this change in favor of a more compatible design.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: I can't find the book for sale at the vendor shop.
Answer: Don't forget to enable the .ESP plugin. Oblivion 1.0 will also not allow this mod to work. The absolute minimum version is Oblivion 1.1.511.

Question: I can't see any map in the book.
Answer: You didn't install the "textures" folder during installation. Re-install and make sure you place all files in the correct locations.

Question: When I drop the book on the ground, I get a big exclamation mark.
Answer: You didn't install the "meshes" folder during installation. Re-install and make sure you place all files in the correct locations.

Question: I can't find the Heaven's Wrath armor.
Answer: The map in the book has two labels: Bravil and Mythical Area. You know Bravil is a city. I wonder what the other one is. Map tip: BLUE = WATER. Also, compare the world map to the map in the book and match it up such as counting the bends in the water on the book map.

Question: I can't find the Heaven's Fury armor.
Answer: Everything you need is in the note. 1. Name of the ruin. 2. Walking instructions that should allow you to pinpoint the location on the map even if you've never been there before. 3. Location of the chest inside the ruin (you will have to hunt for it)

Question: What level do I have to be for this mod?
Answer: This mod does not impose a level restriction in the normal Oblivion way. You can attempt the quest at any time but the difficult was geared towards giving a Level 20 character a tough time. This level was chosen since this armor is the opposite of Daedric which only starts showing up at level 20.

Question: I do not like the armor enchantments. How can I fix or remove them?
Answer: See this post for details on 5 options available to you.

Question: How will the new infamy check work in the next version?
Answer: See this post for details. We will use the complex method.

Question: How can I remove the golden light FX modification before you're next release?
Answer: Follow the steps in this post.

Question: What's the difference between the OMOD-Ready and OMOD file?
Answer: See this post for details.

Question: Why can I not add armor to the Paladin's Stallion?
Answer: Bethesda's DLCHorseArmor mod only works with vanilla horses and simply gives a generic error message about lack of ownership. Modding for any DLCs are legally tricky and at best a nightmare to support so we decided to give DLCHorseArmor uses a steel armor re-texture to match the set for any of the vanilla horses.

Question: I cannot open the crypt because I have ## amount of infamy and it asks that I repent. How can I remove my infamy?
Answer: There are several options available. See this post for details.

Question: What bonuses do I get if I use the Paladin Race in version 1.0?
Answer: Please do not use the Paladin race. It is an exact copy of the Imperial race. The primary purpose was to add a beard for the visage of Vralen Averos. I simply forgot to delete the race before releasing it. Version 1.1 will not have that race and if your character depends on that race, you will not be able to upgrade.

Question: When is the next release?
Answer: When it's done.
