5th June - New (4.5) version of the main file. Alvar and Gundlar revoiced (voice actor Gawd Clan). Hriskarr and Asgald will now spend their nights indoors, rather then wandering around the city.

29th April - New update of the Books optional file add-on, to celebrate the 100th unique download. Adds another book on the cultures of Skyrim's neighbours, makes Grelka from Riften also sell these books (it fits her character, and she's actually a general goods vendor). Stormcloak Quartermasters, too, sell them, albeit only to players with the Merchant perk. A couple of them are also lying around Candlehearth Hall.

Also, added two new beverages to the same add-on, called "Greyskin Tears" and "Lizard's Folly". They are similar in their effect of providing a small resistance to Frost for some time and are sold by Elda Early-Dawn. Hillevi Cruel-Sea also sells one battle of "Lizard's Folly".


Optional "books" file adds a bookseller NPC (she spends her time either in the Palace of the Kings or at the market) with four new books which demonstrate varying levels of bigotry and makes Elda Early-Dawn sell ales with somewhat bigoted names.

Optional "generic" file adds four non-named Nords and two Stormcloak guard officers with modified rarely heard dialogue from vanilla.

I recommend downloading both optional files for extra immersion.


Main description:

If you think that the supposed "Windhelm xenophobia" is a bit of an Informed Attribute, this mod rectifies it somewhat by adding six NPC'to Windhelm, who have varying levels of bigotry towards some races.

Hriskarr is a more straightforward racist, while Alvar is the more faux-benevolent "why are these people so whiny?" one.

Asgald is a bard with a very high option of himself. His initial dialogue with the player explains why the xenophobic Elda Early-Dawn hired a Dunmer as a bard in her Hall.

Fenrens is a retired Stormcloak minor officer and Suvaris Atheron's colleague. He is meant as sort of counter-point to Solaf from Falkreath.

Ringvild Fire-Hair is a noblewoman and a minor quest giver.

Gundlar Bloody-Mace is a bigoted Stormcloak officer in the Palace of the Kings. His injury prevents him from actively fighting. If you win the war for the Imperials, you can find him in the Temple of Talos.

They are fully voiced (Hriskarr is voiced by voice actor DonutsStrongJaw; Ringvild is voiced by voice actress katubug).

Also, the supposedly "tolerant" Brunwulf is now actually tolerant - he no longer gives his excuse about not letting Argonians wander the streets, and the lizards will wander them if Brunwulf becomes the Jarl.

Regardless of who rules the city, Scouts-Many-Marshes will sneak to the New Gnisis Cornerclub in 14:00 on the weekday, where he'll discuss racial relationships in the city with Ambarys (the discussion is an already-existing Vanilla scene that didn't trigger because Marshes was never near the Cornerclub).

Optional file features four non-named Nords who make use of vanilla xenophobic guard dialogue that was rarely heard in-game. Winning the war for the Stormcloaks will make them stop insulting your Argonian/Khajiit/Elvish character. Winning the war for the Imperials will make them stop saying how only loyal Nords are truly welcome in the city, but will, of course, not stop the insults. Defeating Alduin will stop them regardless of your alignment.

As usual with Skyrim mods, unzip the files to the Data folder. If you're upgrading over the old version, overwrite.


50% incompatible with Open Cities mod (a couple of characters won't appear at all, others will appear only in interiors).
