Description
==========================================================================================================================================

This mod add the Princes of the Woods light armours (male and female) to Skyrim. The armour is composed of 17 different pieces, 6 fur complements plus a wig for the hood that can be created at any normal forge and are found under the Studded section (I've changed the section where items are shown from Leather to Studded as the Leather one is really crowded in my game). All pieces are upgradable at workbenches and fully enchantable.

The ratings for Bodice, Boots and Bracers are those of Dragonscale armour except the weight that is the one of the elven armour.

The armour comes in 6 different colours: Green, Brown, Black, White, Red and Olive.
The fur complements come in 3 colours: Brown, Black and White.
There is a wig for the hood changes colour with your character's hair colour. This only works on the player, so it is called "POTW Wig - Player". The ability of the wig to keep the colour when unequipping/equipping it or when exiting Skyrim completely and loading a saved game, it is managed through scripts that require SKSE version 1.6.16 or higher. The scripts work for vanilla hair colours and custom hair colours added by the RaceMenu mod. If you don't use SKSE or use an older version, when the wig looses its hair colour use the showracemenu console command to set your character's hair colour again and that will fix the wig's colour.
There are also other 8 wigs that have a fixed colour, intended for followers or other NPCs.
This makes a total of 123 new items (provided I counted them correctly) added to the game. You can combine the pieces of the different colours.

The "Trousers (body slot)" item displays the trousers on your character (and also a bra for females), and uses the body slot.This means this item cannot be equipped at the same time than the cuirass/bodice, but it allows male characters to wear only the trousers without the cuirass and look good ;)

Required mods
==========================================================================================================================================

The female bodies used for the armour are the default UNP bodies (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/downloads/file.php?id=6709).
The male bodies used for the armour are the Sundracon bodies (http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/2488//?).
If you use another body mod you may see weird textures in places were the clothing shows the skin or see some clipping.

There are also conversions to other body mods:
* to the UNPB-BBP body made by belisariu: Ashara Princess of the Woods - UNPB BBP
* to the SeveNBase body made by furiousreason: Ashara Princes of the Woods 7b Bombshell Cleavage BBP
* to the CBBE body made by VRDaphni: Ashara Princes of the Woods CBBE Conversion

The ability of the wig to keep the colour when unequipping/equipping it or when exiting Skyrim completely and loading a saved game is managed through scripts that require SKSE version 1.6.16 or higher (SKSE). If you don't use SKSE or use an older version, when the wig looses its hair colour use the showracemenu console command to set your character's hair colour again and that will fix the wig's colour.

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

None that I am aware of. If you find anything, please tell me.

Known issues or bugs
==========================================================================================================================================

There is some clipping in some poses.
The cuirass mesh has a lot of polygons, so it may cause lag in some computers.
The wig and hood now are visible when equipped by beast races, but they may clip as their head has a different shape than the human head.
The scripts for the player's wig work for vanilla hair colours and custom colours added by the Race Menu mod by Expired. If you are using custom hair colours added by another mod they may not work (I just don't know).

If you find anything else, please tell me.
