================================================================================
Version 2.7
Requires Patch 1.9+, Dawnguard, Unofficial Skyrim Patch, and Unofficial Dawnguard Patch
================================================================================
This Mod should be used with a new character, old saves may or may not work, most likely something will be broken but maybe nothing will break, use at your own risk when it comes to old saves!! Updates will most probably require a new character, not much i can do about it
=============================================

A small mod that changes the way your Race affects your character. Skills, heights, powers, carry weights, race weights and resistances have been overhauled to be more immersive and mostly more lore friendly.

This mod removes the straight boost to skill levels, and added it instead as a fortifying bonus on top of your base skill level.

So even though you'll be starting at, say, level 15 archery for a wood elf, your level 15 archery will be +15 levels better than an orc's level 15 archery. Meaning you can level up the maximum 85 times even in your race's main skill area.

This mod adds new racial effects to each race as well as modifying racial skills, powers , and resistances.
The racial skills modified will be highlighted in the skills menu the same way all fortified skill are
Some Races will have new powers and old powers have been tweaked
Resistances have been improved on most races to match the races from the 3rd era better.
Each races has it own base carry weight, when you become a vampire it doubles.
Night Eye lasts for 3600 seconds.
Vampires can't drown.

Full list of racial traits these apply when you are a vampire as well:
