This is my first Skyrim mod.

I really liked the Vampire lord Bats power ever since I saw the trailer for Dawnguard, and I was a bit disappointed that it could only be used in Vampire Lord form and that the Bats power was unwieldy in enclosed spaces. So I made this mod..

This mod adds a spell book that gives a lesser power that functions similar to becoming ethereal, it uses that bats power animation for the effect and lasts for a few seconds during which the player can move around without taking damage.

The power is called "the Night's Embrace"


You don't have to be a vampire to use this mod

UPDATE:
v.8c
-tweaked mana costs & increased bat damage for full spell and high damage version

v.8a
-increased bat damage per second
-also added higher damage spell
(the higher damage was kind of cheap, so can only be added via console: type help "The Night's Embrace" and use player.addspell to get the High Damage version)


v.8
- original power now costs mana
-added 2 new versions
Night's embrace (Offense) - similar to the night cloak power of the Vampire lord, a cloud of bats flouts around you damaging enemies
Night's embrace (full) combines both spell effects making you untargetable while you drain enemy life around you for 10 seconds
- put all spellbooks on the altar of Azura's Shrine




-Requires Dawnguard to use-

Where to find it:
The book can be found on the altar of Azura's Shrine. (see pic)

Alternatively you can use the console
-type help "The Night's Embrace"

-use the command
player.addspell

Notes:
-there is another book of the same name that does nothing but has text. It was originally intended to add the skill upon reading, however, I am currently having trouble opening dawnguard in the ck, so I doubt I can fix it to make it that way.

-You don't have to be a vampire to use this mod, I made this mod to work with my character who uses a custom race mod, since custom races can't be vampires outside of other mods, this was just easier to do.

-using this mod might cause problems with character eyes, it's a bug in skyrim and sadly, I don't have a fix. However, it did not affect me when using the Dawnguard Eyes - Glowing Eye Mod, it might help.
