~The Border Gate ~

You want to know what's behind the border of Skyrim? Tired of hanging around in Riverwood and Whiterun? Then this might be the mod for you!
You want more? Jknjb made an AS-LAL Extension to start a new life in Nyhus, Pryai village and near a Talos shrine (ex Talos Safe Haven mod)!

This mod is tes5edited and navmeshed and gives you extra land to explore. Expect quests and strong enemies. Expect more land to explore, don't let the Skyrim border stop you.

DLC Dragonborn is required to play this version. You also have to unlock the Skyrimborders.


Nyhus is located in Cyrodiil, south of the Rift, Skyrim.
There are a few ways to travel to Nyhus, but the easiest way is when you travel from Riften to the border of Morrowind. Pass the bridge and - before the border - take the path on your right. Just follow the signs and you will enter an abandoned gate which guards the border Skyrim / Cyrodiil. When you enter the gate, you'll discover dead bodies; one of these bodies contains a diary which informs you about Nyhus and it's environment.


Nyhus ('New House') is a small village in Cyrodiil, guarded by, mainly, hardened Nordish warriors under leadership of Folkvar. There is an Inn where you can drink Riften Blood (you can brew this beer yourself) and Forester, the strongest beers in Skyrim, there is a blacksmith, farmer, some NPC's and a shrine of Mara. If you talk with Folkvar, you'll be on a quest.

It is a dangerous environment. When you reach Nyhus, you see the colonists struggling with a small army of Thalmor Elves - they will attack you too. And a little up north in the mountains, an Ogre Fort is located - yes there are Ogres ! The Ogres are a threat to Nyhus and they are strong (level 25-30). I made Ogres by making Orcs larger, giving them a grey/blue skin and make them look more primitive.

Not only Ogres, also a group of vampires under Mordor's leadership is a real threat to Nyhus. These vampires claimed a small village, ruined the houses, digested the people living there and draining the lifeforce of trees around them. They noticed the adventurers in Nyhus and decided they will be their next victims.

You can enter a dungeon and fight vampires, headless zombies, black spitters and skeletonguardians, fight some bandits, ghosts and zombiewolves in the forest and in the badlands, or travel to the Dunmer PRYAI VILLAGE, take the boat to Tel Mithryn (Solstheim) and claim your abandoned playerhouse on an island . If you are tired of your Skyrim-life, you can decide to jump from Dive Rock, after you drank some Riften Blood (worth to try this out!).

West of Nyhus, there is a mountainlocked place in the bordering Cyrodiil mountains, south of Riften. This place has a Talos Shrine with crazy Talos worshippers, a cave as an home, a wolf (and some NPC's) as your follower, a small quest and an one way ticket to Sovngarde. Because it's located south of Riften, with a lower latitude, it feels/looks warmer than the southern holds of Skyrim.

~Talos Safe Haven ~

Last but not least: you can travel from Tel Mithryn to Morrowind (the continent) by uploading this mod! All you have to do is use your rowboat from your playershouse on a Island south of Tel Mithryn.


This additional mod, made by Jknjb , which is also downloadable from this site, gives you the opportunity to start your character in one of these three locations!
Your character will spawn at the map marker in Nyhus (watch out for the Thalmor!), or the map marker in Pryai, depending on what you select. You will start with a basic suit of iron armor, a set of steel weapons, a woodcutter's axe and a pickaxe, a set of clothes, 10 lockpicks, 10 restore health potions and 500 gold.

To play this mod, you need the Alternate Start-Live Another Life from Arthmoor .

There could be some grammar mistakes; I am sorry. I am Dutch, not English.

Don't drink and dive & may Talos guide you;
