Elfaron or in the language of man "Star-Hunter"

This rare and beautiful armour was created for an Elven princess, made from the finest leather and pure Mithril.

This is my 3rd Mod and was for me a long and difficult task to complete, it wasn't "one step foreword, two steps back etc." - It was one step foreword then carpet bombed.... but I made it through and am very proud of this and hope you like it. :)

Main File updates to include all updates

New LowRes version for mid-low end machines

Texture update file fixes missing mipmaps on the armour ( just drop into your oblivion folder)

East of Shadow's Rest cave is a bridge over a waterfall, at the base of the waterfall in the water you will find 2 chests.(See screenshots)


This is a very Hi-res (hence the large file size) Lore friendly set of unique armour (A-cup).

The armour has no helm, instead there is an enchanted tiara which has a shield spell,
the rest of the armour is rated the same as standard mithril, though with a higher quality
(it wont break so easily)
The sword "Aranruth" (Royal-Anger) and the bow "Aragost" (Royal-dread) are fairly powerful and dangerous, not enchanted but do give high damage ignoring normal weapon resistance, they're not unbalanced or god weapons by any means, but they will make a difference.

The weapons are scripted - when you equip them a sword belt (for the sword) or a weapon harness (for the bow) will automatically be added and equipped to the player,
These have been designed especially for the armour, the arrows are not scripted and will have to be equipped manually.

There is a second set of non-scripted weapons that can be used normally.

The greaves come with several versions, bare legged (with underware), Mithril chainmail, and leather. all come with or without armoured pads,
The set all has the same armour rating, just choose the look you want (see screen shots)

The chest with the armour does NOT re-spawn.

Second Chest-
Contains the arrows and additional weapon harnesses, there are 5 versions of the harness to cover all possible combinations of weapons,
use as you like (for other weapons and/or outfits),
They will be compatible with tight fitting armours and clothes like my other mod the Elven Princess outfit,
This chest does re-spawn.

Known Issues or Bugs
When swapping the bow for long sword, sometimes the sword-belt does not appear, just un-equip then re-equip the sword,
waiting for a moment after un-equipping the bow to allow the script to remove the harness eliminates this issue.
