This mod adds Castle Orlok - an immense and carefully furnished player owned vampire castle to the south of Falkreath. It can be reached via the Map Marker, or by taking the route past Angi's camp. The mod also features a mini quest, which lets you find out what happened before your arrival at the castle, and three spells (Supernatural reflexes, Mistform, and Vampiric grip, which you can now access without the Vampire Lord form)

GOOD TO KNOW



* -ABOUT THE HEARTHFIFE BREEZEHOME CTD BUG-
The mod author MeatBagWammo has found a fix for this issue, and has allowed me to refer you to the mod. You can find it at: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/27053/
I have already tested it, and it works great.

* Ecooooooooo continued work on the mod, so be sure to check out his version at: http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/24779

* This mod requires the Dawnguard DLC to function.

* If the quest doesn't start for some reason, just type this into your console: setstage modgsq01 10 ... if it still won't work, follow the "Pieces of the Puzzle" walkthrough in the Walkthrough section at the bottom of the page.

* Tricky Pullbar/chain locations: For Foyer and Library grates: in the Foyer (next to the fireplace). Just for foyer grate: in the corridor, to the left of the foyer: Just for library grates: In the library (hidden left of the fireplace), and in the corridor, to the right of the foyer. For thrall Jail: Next to grate, and in Igor's quarters. Also, the mausoleum handle is a bit rusty and needs to be turned twice. Library fireplace can be activated through the candlestick lever on it's left. Master bedroom fireplace can be activated through the lever in the secret wardrobe to the left of the bed. Pull chain for the main outer grate found in the Guard Tower near the castle.

*Basement now accessible through secret fireplace entrance (library).

Walkthroughs



Pieces of the Puzzle
SPOILER: The quest starts, and you are pointed to the site of a cart wreck, not far from the wreck ( coc orlokcampfireexterior01 ) you find something a bit disturbing and a journal that you have to read in order to progress (Don't look at the cart, look near around campsite). After this, you are pointed to the library, to find a black little journal on the table (the one next to the basement entrance) titled "Janus' Journal). Your read it, and head for the final journal, located in the basement. You should see this one next to Mina's coffin. It's the one on the right in the room with the three coffins.
