Note: At some later date, I plan to convert this mod for Skyrim.


Upgrade info 1.00:
Right-hand alchemy sorter has been removed. The treasure chest
sorts all light armor into left set of chests and some items on the
right side. New cvar will autocratically rename your chests for the sorter.

Maybe, a future upgrade for armor and weapons meshes and skins will be available. Need permission to use them.

After becoming Archmage, you play small quest with a rich story that leaves many questions and leads to a greater mystery. At the end, you have a sanctuary room for your travels.

Notes, this is not a house mod. You teleport in, refuel, reload, get/drop off items, and teleport out. Also, make sure you remove from the game the "Filled Colossal Soul Gem". Hannibal Traven needs to gone. If you don't, you'll have story conflict.

You can rename any chest with control-activate then open chest. The quest starts in the Archmage's Quarters.

The Dragon Swords, Level 35+, are handy swords that make combat less
boring and more dynamic. You have five swords for many possible
enemies. Each sword does critical on an enemy based on cvars with
bonus for one type. Also, there is a random chance that you will
knock an enemy back. The cvars will allow you balance them as you want.

Firestorm - undead
Icestorm - goblins
Lightningstorm - daedra
Wraith - bandits
Vampire - no bonus

The armor, level 35+, makes using companions much easier and less
hassle. It drains their magicka to repair armor and weapons. Then
recharges any weapons in their inventory. You can use the armor, but
it's meant for companions. It's been thoroughly tested and balanced.

You can find both in the treasure chest. This is the end of this mod. When I get to skyrim, i'll convert it. Until then, have fun.



Available cvars:
-----------------------
ALVQsanctuary1.GWS1ChargeMax
GWS maximum charge

ALVQsanctuary1.GWS1ChargePulse
GWS 24hr recharge value

ALVQsanctuary1.ShowCharge
Show percent charge left when touching stone

ALVQsanctuary1.RenameChestKey
DX key used to rename chests

ALVQSanctuary1.EnableSortChest
This makes the treasure chest sort items into the other chests. The first time it is enabled. It will rename all needed sort chests. All light armor is sorted on the left side of the room.

ALVQSanctuary1.CriticalHitChance
Dragonswords critical hit chance, default: 5%+ bonus %5

ALVQSanctuary1.CriticalHitScale
Bonus Damage as percentage of total hit points


General Modding Info:
This uses a sorting method for containers and saving name changes to items you make while playing, some great GFX to explore too. There is a lot you can use here. Necromancer mods, i'll can send you my ideas for dark form of the ritual and how to balance it. Everything used must be given credit in docs.

I'll respond to constructive criticism (good and why, bad and why), if I have the time.

Incompatibility
===============

Any mod that brings Hannibal Traven back will cause story conflicts. Changes to Rominus Polus might cause mod conflicts. Lore might conflict with other mods. Structural changes to the Arcane University might cause mod conflicts.


Known Issues or Bugs
====================
Hannibal Traven AI has issues. He should approach you, but doesn't. You need to move to him to trigger the dialog. I don't how to make him do what is described in the journal entry. He should teleport out, but won't cast spells.

Dialog, lore, and lightning needs polishing. Some balancing needed for teleporting.

Chestname updating has issues. After you rename a chest, you need to open the chest. A few seconds later, it will update. If you teleport out then teleport in, the chest will update. I can't trigger it to open a chest after renaming without causing other problems.
