Name: Fort Akatosh Redux
Version: 1.4.3
Author(s): onra

Description
========

Fort Akatosh is a fully functional fort south of the Imperial City run
by the Akatosh Legion. The fort protects the main trade routes from the
east and south and could as well support the Imperial City in the event
of an attack. Fort Akatosh is also the headquarters of all legions of
Tamriel, under command of General Synniu Esdrecus.

These days most of the units of the Akatosh Legion are stationed all
over the whole empire. Only two regiments are currently stationed at the
fort: the 1st Akatosh Guard Regiment and the 1. Elite Infantry Regiment.
As the old Legion forts were abandoned and the Cyrodiil Legion has
nearly no troops operating outside of the Imperial city, the Swamp Moth
Legion has received orders to return from Blackmarsh to Cyrodiil, to
support the local forces during the oblivion crisis. (This is part of our other mod "Guards of Cyrodiil" which is highly
recommended to play together with Fort Akatosh).

Fort Akatosh is located at the river Niben just beside Cropsford and
comes with 4 gates, 12 watchtowers, 4 large barracks, a legion
smith, stables, own prison, storages, infirmary, jakes, washhouse,
Thermae ( Roman bath), legion kitchen, drill area, the
mainbuilding ( featuring the HQ, the Arsenal, the Scriptorium, the
Imperial Cult) and a large basement ( featuring private quarters, guard
barracks, the legion vaults, armory, temple of Akatosh and interrogation
chamber),

Further on we have the Fort Akatosh Docks..featuring a big dry dock
(with cranes and stuff), navy barracks, storages, a lighthouse, imperial
trading company cog and the trading company office....

last but not least Fort Akatosh will add 6 legion watchtowers (beacons)
along the Cyrodiil borders ...

The Fort itself has been built in the style of a roman/imperial legion
castellum by using a mix of castle meshes ( Mr_Siika), imperial
architecture and meshes taken from Mr_Siikas Jurad tileset for designing
it. So it has a unique military look but fits perfectly in the existing
game as well.

More than 100 npc's have been made so far , legionnaires, recruits,
guards, elite guards, battlemages, officers, legionnaires from other
provinces etc...all high detailed with unique names, faces, inventories,
unique legion gear and complex AI shedules featuring a lot of different
animations...you will see soldiers patrol, pray, eat , sleep, being
drilled, taking notes, playing lute, drink, smoke etc ....

Fort Akatosh will provide a lot of different services and features like
merchants ( selling as well lot of new stuff and cobl items from the
other provinces), training, repairs, recharge, horses, an altar to pray
at, sleeping places ( from barracks up to your own officers quarters),
fully scripted roman bath, fully working alchemy lab (cobl and more),
enchantment altar, food and water supply (cobl), the luggage (cobl), a
big library ( featuring all ! cobl books and more), legion kitchen with
an oven to bake your own bread, etc....

As a special feature all races and genders are made useable as guards
now ...this means npc's of all races and genders can be used as
legionnaires and guards and will warn you for trespassing and arrest you
properly....( will work with npc's from other mods as well)....no more
feeling lonely cause you are the only Argonian or Nord in the Imperial
Legion...This feature is fully voice acted by using original vanilla
voices.
A guard crime fix has been included as well, so that the player will be
arrested properly for commiting a crime even if he is a member of the
Imperial Legion...
All Imperial Legion members will greet you properly ( animated) if they
recognize you as an imperial soldier ( will work as well with npc's from
other mods)

This mod introduces 3 new fully playable factions ( "Imperial Legion 1st
Akatosh Guard Regiment" , "Imperial Cult", "North&East Empire Company")
which the player can join. All factions will provide quests for the
player to climb up the ranks ( up to 9 different lore based ranks).

Version 1.3 will allow the player to join the Imperial Legion, the
Imperial Cult and the North&East Empire Company and to rise up the
imperial legion ranks up to captain by completing different quests.

To rise up to captain you must become the Hero of Kvatch as a sergeant of the imperial legion...will work the other way as well
