Included Mods:

These mods have been contributed by their original authors (credited below) In their entirety, and therefore you do not need to run their mod as it is included in LoTD, so go ahead and remove them from your load order and endorse their mod if you haven't because they've done a lot to help make this mod what it is by contributing their work. The Object ID's of course have changed so you will need to reacquire the items, and some items have be reworked or quests added for them in this project

- Insanity's Chrysamere
- Insanity's Iceblade Monarch
- Insanity's Umbra
- PrivateEye's Helm of Oreyn Bearclaw
- PrivateEye's rings of old
- PrivateEye's Helm of Tohan
- PrivateEye's sixth house bellhammer
- PrivateEye's BiPolar Blade
- Ronnie Magnum's Legendary Rings
- Edhelsereg's Lord's Mail
- Painkiller97's Hrothmund's axe
- Nimezis Daedric Crescent
- Trainwiz's Visage of Mzund redone
- Saeralith's White Phial Replacer
- nockchaa's Unique Shapes for Unique weapons
- keizaalfeyn's Dawnfang
- MyBad's Shadow of the Underking
- Theycallmecheese's Ancient Shrouded Armor replacer
- Wulfharth's Fang of Haynekhtnamet


Weapons and armor stats redone- a TES5Edit merge patch will be required, otherwise this mod will override the item models added by this mod. At worst it makes the model look like the vanilla version unless it is on display in the museum where it will look as LoTD intended

"to have and to hold" causes a dialog glitch with auryen where he greets you all over the world even if he's not there, and also constantly force greets in the museum. Just reverse your load order of that mod and this one and the problem should be solved

SkyRe: Some optimization has been done, but a full compatibility patch is pending

Legacy of the Dragonborn (Formerly Dragonborn Gallery)

The Legacy of the Dragonborn is steeped in prophecy, myth, legend and history itself. Explore forgotten lore and uncover the lost relics of the 7 Dragonborn of the bygone eras of Tamriel. From those merely mentioned in title to those who wielded the power of the voice, many legendary and influential people held the title of “Dragonborn” and they all link to the lost covenant of Akatosh.
“Legacy of the Dragonborn” creates a sizeable addition to your Skyrim game by providing a fully featured museum in Solitude, and with the help of the curator Auryen Morellus, you can store, display and utilize your entire collection as you see fit, all the while being aided and guided by Auryen in between your adventures. Auryen acts as a quest hub for the numerous stages of the “Shattered Legacy” questline, and also offers a variety of rewards for filling the museum displays. He will hire a guard and assistant curator as he sees fit to assist him, which offers greater possibilities in the future. Patrons will also tour your collection and provide donations on a regular basis which you can collect

  • Added Pale Pass world space including fully immersive ongoing battleground which will be expanded upon in future updates. Fort pale pass and its underworks are also accessible.
  • All content added or changed on vanilla resources is done through dynamic coding rather than editing the original base object, so changes happen in game so should not interfere with other mods (exceptions listed below)
  • Special "Fate Cards" available in random loot chests and enemies. 6 different sets of 13 cards each are scattered all over Skyrim with varying rarity. When all 13 of a set is found, "equip" any card and they will all transform into a single deck which provides a special bonus of some kind

Player customizable "Visage of the Dragonborn" armor set:
Special “Visage of the Dragonborn” evolved armor set from the relics of the dragonborn, gathered throughout the questline, is a fully scaled
set of armor that grows in power as you level, AND gains more powerful
abilities with more of the set equipped! The armor is also set up so
that you can easily customize it by replacing the model files provided
with your own (see instructions below under installation)

for a custom appearance for your armor “relics of the dragonborn” set, simply gather the mesh files for your preferred armor, rename them to match the files in the DBM_armor folder and move your files into the folder, overwriting the old ones. There should be 2 files for each of the 4 armor parts (one male and one female) as well as a ground model for each piece and a 1st person model for male and one for female.

To install simply place the BSA, ESM and ESP files as well as the Meshes folder inside your /Data folder. The meshes folder will add to the armor sub folder a “DBM_Armor” sub folder. In your load order, the DragonbornGalleryPatch.ESP file must be loaded after the ESM file. You can place the museum in whatever load order you want relative to your others and it should work fine, though I suggest bash patching it with any weapon and armor mods as I have replaced the models on all unique relics and you may want to pick and choose or perhaps you utilize a statistical overhaul of weapons, all of which will require a patch to bring them all together. I have also added to many leveled lists and therefore patching will be critical

After all files are in place I recommend running LOOT and then building a Bash Patch using Wyre Bash. See the video for details: VIDEO

To uninstall simply remove the above files

The best practice for upgrading is the following:
  1. Empty the museum of all items. This is easily done by emptying the safe behind the curator's desk, emptying the set book cabinet, the jewelry case, and the painting storage box next to it
  2. Save your game outside of the museum
  3. Install the new version of the mod, overwriting any old files.
  4. Restart your game, enter the museum, exit again and save outside once more, then restart your game again. This may seem odd but it helps the scripts and persistent references refresh and old stuff clear out of your game
  5. load up and continue playing!

If there are strange issues and you need a thorough upgrade, you can start from scratch:
  1. Empty the museum of all items. This is easily done by emptying the safe behind the curator's desk, emptying the set book cabinet, the jewelry
  2. case, and the painting storage box next to it
  3. Save your game outside of the museum
  4. Remove the mod entirely from your computer
  5. Restart your game, save again, exit
  6. Run a Script Cleaning program or "Save game cleaner". Several good options are available on the nexus, and while they won't clean a save entirely (nothing will), it can help a lot
  7. Install the new version of the mod
  8. load up and continue playing!

I do not generally recommend using NMM or MO or similar automated upgrade and management tools to define the load order with this mod as I have been unable to get the masters sorted properly as TES5Edit is fighting me on doing so. Manual upgrading is generally safer and bug free

In addition to all the DLC's, SKSE is needed in order for the display safe to automatically place items on display for you. The mod will function without SKSE, but all displays will need to be placed manually

Potential conflicts and known bugs:
The only resource that has been edited from the base game are the unique weapons which had generic models in vanilla. Those have been edited to swap out for a unique model. Bash patching may be necessary if you have another mod that alters any of them

Enhanced Cities: A tree is placed blocking the museum entrance. You can use the console, click the tree, and type DISABLE to remove it. I don't see the point of a patch for 1 object taking up your mod load space

Solitude Capitol edition: A compatibility patch is available which alters assets from that mod to allow the museum free placement. Just a few relocations
