An Armor mod by Patobek, JackoO, and Hothtrooper44.
One of the most famous and powerful figures in the history of Tamriel was Jagar Tharn, Imperial Battlemage to Uriel Septim VIII. Though disavowed by the current organization for political reasons, Jagar is known as the first Nightingale and a master thief and mage both. He was also a powerful ally to Mehrunes Dagon in conquering the Battlespire Academy, among countless other history altering feats.
Through seduction and deceit, Jager stole the Staff of Chaos from the Queen Mother of Morrowind and used it to bind the Imperial king, Uriel Septim VIII, in another plane. For ten years the king was bound, and through illusion magic, Jager Tharn took on his image and ruled in his stead unbeknownst to most of the empire. Though his devious reign was cut short by his own apprentice and the staff of Chaos destroyed, the mighty spellbinder's armor outlived the legend.
"Spellbinder Armor" is a lore friendly, stand alone, heavy armor set for all races and both genders. This is the battle regalia of the mighty battlemage Jager Tharn from the first game in The Elder Scrolls series, Arena.
This set has similar statistics to ebony armor, and thus requires the ebony smithing perk to craft. There are five variations of the Spellbinder armor set, all crafted out of fitting materials from the game: Golden Spellbinder Armor, Crimson Spellbinder Armor, Royal Spellbinder Armor, Runic Spellbinder Armor, and Patterned Spellbinder Armor. These sets can only be crafted in the Skyforge, which will help the large number of items presented in this mod from cluttering normal forges.
This armor set is adorned with many details including: a spell book, potions, coin purse, side plates, storage pouch, a scroll satchel, and more. Feel free to take a look at the mesh.
This armor is a co-authored piece by:
Patobek - design and assembly in Blender
JackoO - rigging and weighing in Blender
Hothtrooper44 - Nifscope/Creation Kit work and presentation
Feedback on the armor should be left in the comments section. I will read all the comments made and consider requests for alterations and potential fixes.
