One of the more enjoyable things about playing Oblivion are the various factions
throughout the game world. I really enjoy the quests associated with them and
the level of immersion they bring to the game.

The big let down comes when you see the uniforms and equipment...or lack thereof.
Especially true with this faction which has no uniform whatsoever, and a shield
with what looks like pencil sketched swords for an emblem.

So I decided to try my hand at making some minor improvements. The shield has been
retextured with a proper Knights of The Thorn emblem which closely matches the
tapestry found inside the Thorn Lodge building.

There are also matching cuirass, gauntlets, greaves, and a cape. All items have new
custom icons as well. I didn't do a helmet since none of the members wear a helmet
anyway...and the boots...well there isn't much you can do to improve the ugly steel
boots.

Stats are within a few points of standard steel equipment...nothing extraordinary.


Details
========

Non Playable versions of the armors are Worn and used by Knights of The Thorn members,
and will be seen on the dead Knights lying around inside the Cheydinhal Oblivion Gate.
Sorry folks...no easy to get, dead body harvested armor sets to be found here.
If you want playable versions of the armor you will have to sign on for the quest and
receive it as a reward.

There is a scripted chest inside the Thorn Lodge containing a full set of armor and
shield. You will not be able to open it until you have become an Honorary Knight after
completing the quest and speaking with Farwil. So it would behoove you to keep him
alive and get him home.

Two plugins are provided. One for Shivering Isles and one for Plain Oblivion. The
Shivering Isles version applies the new Thorn Shield model to the quest reward you
receive in SI.


Install
=======

1. Extract to your Oblivion Data folder either manually or using the mod manager
of your choice.

2. Set Load order. Should work just fine when placed in the same area as other
armor mods

3. Play and enjoy


Requirements
============

TES IV: Oblivion patched to most recent version
Shivering Isles only if you use the DLC specific esp


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

I don't know of any other mods that touch this faction. Nothing turned up when I
was searching, so it should be compatible with most everything.
