Meogron Knights Version: 2.8

Installation: Just copy files into your Oblivion data folder.

REQUIREMENTS:

This mod requires Oblivion latest patch, DLC Horsearmor, DLC Spelltomes, Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isle. (Horsearmor and Spelltomes DLC are not really needed to play this mod if you don't want to use them - THEY ARE OPTIONAL ONLY KOTN IS REALLY NEEDED WITH SI)

Meogron Knights is meant to be a real expansion to Oblivion by adding new content to the game.

GENERALLY WHAT`S NEW:

The normal/vanilla Oblivion leveled lists are changed by adding there new creatures and items. All the orginal monsters and items still appear at same levels. Minotaur lords and ogres still appear at lvl 18 like usually, but before them you can meet slimes, ancient wisps and gargoyles etc. So generally it doesn´t change the game as Oscura or Martigan mod, but it adds things in normal leveled lists.

Few creatures may give Sigil Stones like Ancient Lich, Demon and Dragon + some special enemies. (25% chance). Even some very unique chests may give sigil stones. Also I added few new sigil stones too. Beside that this mod adds magical gems which act like sigil stones usually they tend to be weaker than sigil stones. (can be found from boss chests)

NEW DUNGEONS:

1) Forgotten Dungeon is populated by undeads, vampires and vampire beasts - it consists many different types of dungeons.
2) Forgotten Fortress is populated by vampires and undeads. (Version 2.1 adds a new special bonus level in level 3)
3) Ancient Ruins is populated by undeads, daedra and mythic creatures - at level 30 the final boss is always dragon (bit stronger than usual dragon + better loot)
4) Lord Vlindrel Tower is populated by skeletons, mainly by special skeletons like warriors, knights and halberdiers.
5) Lost Halls of Ayleids is 3 level dungeon which is populated by daedra, undead and few vampires. Final boss is either Dark Knight Lord or Fallen Angel.
6) Tower of Nirn/Ancient Tower is populated by monsters, animals and goblins - at level 30 the final boss is always dragon (bit stronger than usual dragon).
7) Castle Earthstone is populated by marauders, undeads and some vampires. If you want to recieve Halstein`s special items I advice you to kill him at level 25 or 30. (he is in level 2 - non respawning)
8) Dragon Tower - is special type of dungeon which is more like exploreable site, it is populated by marauders. 1.7 adds dungeon level, it is populated by undead and creatures. (has random boss at the end, which means it can be from bandit to dragon)
9) Tower of Madness is populated by different types of monsters and npc-s (although they have been divided by different domains). Final boss is Fallen Angel. It is good old style dungeon where you must use switches in order to proceed.
10) Dungeon of Misery is populated by different creature faction types of enemies like animals, mythic monsters, goblins, vampire beasts and vampires.
11) Dungeon of Ancestors is populated mainly by undeads, vampires and few necromancers, mythic creatures. Each level is made of different style.

Horse armour Esp will change some horses and imperial cavalry. They will be with new armours and horse armours. White horses use new textures from stormcaller horse mod.

I added 6 songs as bonus. Enjoy.

Also I fixed few game bugs like Mora quest award. Now it gives +10 willpower as it should, also path of steel gives now +10 Str and End instead +10 Str and speed. Cameron staff has been fixed too and also it looks different and many other easy fix game bugs.

CONFLICTS:

This mod won`t work with big overhaul mods such as Martigen, OOO (unless you use Knights-OOO version), Francesco's, Oblivion Warcry, that changes existing leveled lists(well it actually works but it overwrites most of the vanilla leveled lists but not all - so you might still see some OOO and MMM content). Also it won`t work mods that uses Knights esp file.
Lost Halls of Ayleids dungeon location conflicts with a location from the Gates of Aesgard mod.
Dragon Tower dungeon conflicts with Smuggler's Outpost location. Castle Earthstone conflicts with Fort Baltsine location. Dungeon of Misery location conflicts with Daedric Shrine Ruins mod.
This mod conflicts with Blood Illusion and Arcania armor mod - something in Fort Blueblood does not match.
Has a small conflict with Dremora companion my mod have to be loaded after that mod in order to work well.
Conflicts with Badass Mannimarco mod, KORE - Umbra Blood Drinker mod, new potions by Tealpanda, Castle Seaview, Double Melons Wardrobe location Temple of Melon.

Enjoy the game!
