Voted Best Home Mod of 2013 by GameSpot


OVERVIEW
===========================
Sjel Blad Castle - "Soul Blade" Castle in Norwegian, is an expansive player home mod (located just south of the Throat of the World) with numerous character perks including an armory, forge, barracks (humanoid companions), sanctuary, living quarters, vault, lair (creature companions), stables (mounts), waygates (teleport to major cities), and castle guards.

This is my first Skyrim mod and I would love/appreciate feedback and comments. My desire is to create an optimal experience for the player and I cannot do so without the thoughts and ideas of the gaming community.

If you can't tell by now I love this game and its modding capabilities. I am a very passionate gamer and modder with a bachelor's degree in video game art and design. My hope is that one day I will be doing this as a career.

If you like the mod please endorse it! Thanks and enjoy!


SPECIAL NOTE - PLEASE READ
===========================
It is recommended to back up all Skyrim save files before installing any game mod, so please do so. Once a mod is installed and running it is highly advised to never save your game while inside or around player-created content, as this can lead to game content caching. Basically, the game remembers bits and pieces of a mod’s content in your saved game which can possibly cause problems in the future if that same content is changed or updated in any way. Saving your game in the outside game world helps prevent this from happening.
