“Take my wife.......please!”

This gem of a joke from Rodney Dangerfield says it all.

Meet Lynesta, created specifically as marriageable follower for the express purpose of having a spouse that would work with these two mods:

Ekkii Spouse Life - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/10319

Spouse Store Mod - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/12325

I was getting a bit tired of having to run around all of Skyrim trying to offload my ill gotten loot until I found the above mod and thought perhaps that a spouse with a dedicated Barter skill would help my make a few Septims without having to do much legwork.

Additionally I found it very frustrating that I was being penalised by the barter system with merchants not having enough gold to pay for my awesome weapons, armour and potions after I had so carefully invested time and effort into Smithing and Alchemy. Yes while I realise there are mods here on our wonderful Nexus that can raise the gold of various merchants I attempt to role play Skyrim as lore friendly and immersive as possible.

After two play throughs with both toons married to Lynesta, the happy couples managed to make quite a substantial amount of gold from the comfort of Breezehome without having to venture out too much to offload loot.

Please note: Both games were played prior to my installing Hearthfire.

Statistics:

Race: Nord

Skill set: Vendor - Pawnbroker

Location: Old Hrolden Inn

While she is combat capable she won’t exactly be going toe to toe with Alduin or anything hence I usually whisk her off to Riften to get married and then to Breeze home for the um-ah honeymoon, before putting her to work in the Whiterun market District.

Lynesta is custom player house friendly and has an amount of gold and gold ingots in her inventory when you meet her along with an enchanted Dwarven Dagger and Bow.

Required Mods:

Numenume Hair - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/11173

Sylvia tattoos - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/23362

Mods featured in screenshots:

UNPB Blessed Body – standard - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/14899

Osare Gothic Lolita - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/17727

Seraphine Armour – UNPB BBP - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/25153

Tifa Outfit - http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/14216

Please also note this is a huge step for me sharing a first mod as I am pretty much an “Old Noob” – that until recently had no idea how to use the CK or NPC Editor.

Any constructive comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks:

For his fantastic nub friendly tutorial ( http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/23972) which gave me to courage to even attempt to make some NPC’s for my own use. Unfortunately he has decided to withdraw from modding at the moment but I for one hope to see his brilliant talents on display on Nexus again in the future.

With some more tweaking I hope to be able to share my other NPC’s with your all very soon.
