This is a player starter home that is ACTUALLY a starter home. It's not overpowered, it's not a cheat, it's not a spacious manor, it's not silly. This is NOT meant to be the one place for all your needs; no collection of every crafting station, no cluttering it with mannequins and weapons racks. It's simple and (hopefully) tasteful; a nice little nook for beginning players.

It's an ancient Nordic dwelling nearby the Guardian Stones. Out front is the body of the hunter who once lived there; on his body are a journal and book explaining the history, as well as the key. Three Stone Watch has no loading cells; it is all part of the exterior worldspace.

Its features include:

**Wood chopping block out front.
**Grindstone out back.
**Tanning rack out back.
**Alchemy Lab.
**Bed.
**Two working bookshelves.
**A working mannequin.
**A working shield rack (above the door from the back balcony.
**Map marker. (Has to be discovered.)
**Breathtaking back balcony view over a lake.


WARNINGS

1. Once I encountered a problem where the exterior walls of the home disappeared. I was unable to reproduce this, but just in case, I'm throwing this out there.
2. I auto-generated a navmesh, but (a) navmeshing is not my strength, and (b) navmeshing has been awkward in mods since one of the official patches (1.4, I think?). Followers may or may not be able to navigate.
3. The mannequin doesn't always seem to be on the ground level (for example, sunk into the floor). It still works, however.
4. Since this is in an EXTERIOR cell, with no loading, some computers may have a problem with it. It's not very cluttered, however, so it shouldn't be too bad, especially if you're not on a crappy rig that's barely able to run Skyrim to begin with.
5. The ONLY non-respawning containers are the big urn and the bookshelves. The two barrels and the two small urns inbetween the bed and the mannequin respawn; do NOT put your stuff in them, or you WILL lose it.


INSTALLATION (Manual)

You will need an unzipping utility such as 7zip to extract the contents of the Zip file you downloaded.

Extract the contexts of the zip file into your Skyrim/Data folder. There should not be any overwriting involved, as the only file in the zip is the .esp file.

INSTALLATION (Nexus Mod Manager)

Just double-click it from the mod list, as usual for any mod you install and activate with the Manager.


POSSIBLE CONFLICTS

The only thing that should at all conflict with this mod is another mod that alters the Wilderness cell next to the Guardian Stones cell.


CREDITS

Bethesda for a great game
SkyrimNexus for a great site

CHANGELOG:

v1.0 -- 6/30/2012 -- First release!


OTHER MODS BY ME:

Al's Completionist Series:

2. Als Paragon Reward Chest -- little mod rewarding the completionist player who collects all 5 Paragons
3. Als Konahrik -- little mod rewarding the completionist player who collects all vanilla dragon priest masks with a previously missing boss fight
4. Als Treasure Map Reward -- little mod rewarding the completionist player who collects all 11 Treasure Maps in vanilla Skyrim
5. Als Vault of the Old Slayer -- Requires All 10 Dragon Claws -- modestly sized dungeon rewarding the completionist player who collects all Dragon Claws in vanilla Skyrim with fantastic amounts of treasure

Al's Powers and Abilities:
1. Al's Thunder Smite -- Insta-Kill Enemies, and ONLY Enemies

4. Al's -Get 80 Perk Points and All Skills 100- Cheat Ring
