Introduction & Features

This mods adds a full armor and weapon set inspired by Oblivion's DLC Nights of the Nine but with a completely new look based on ESO's breton armor concept art. It's aimed but not limited to Paladin characters. The main focus points of it's development have been quality, lore, uniqueness (in enchantments, quest, etc) and overall, a solid mod. 

  • Full armor and weapon set (helmet, great helm [2.0], boots, gauntlets, cuirass, sword, mace and ring) based on artifacts from previous games such as Chrysamere, Light of day and the Ring of Phynaster.

  • 5 new shrines of the bretony pantheon fully integrated into the game (Pelinal Whitestrake [2.0], Magnus, Phynaster, Y'ffre and Sheor). Details about it's effects below on the Details and Stats section.

  • All items have new high quality models made from scratch and textures available at 1k, 2k and 4k resolutions.

  • Full Race/gender/weight compatibility on the armor (Not boobplate).

  • Immersive quest to obtain the items aimed at Paladin characters. It involves following a map, solving riddles and a chess-based little puzzle. There's a very detailed walkthough including images available in case you get stuck.

  • All items are offered in both Heavy/Light and Two-handed/One-handed versions and are temperable at the appropiate workbench with quicksilver ingots.

  • Custom enchantments on the items, such as making custom spells available while equipped, learning paladin skills faster and much more. Most of them inspired by the already mentioned Oblivion DLC. More information about the specific enchantments below on the Details and Stats section.

  • Once the quest is completed, crafting of unenchanted versions of all the items is made available at any forge. Alternatively, you can unlock it at any time with the console command: "Set FFPAACanCraft to 1". In any case it requires Advanced Armors (for armor) and Ebony smithing (for weapons) perks. Materials are quicksilver, corundum, leather, leather strips and rubies. 

  • Tes5edit Cleaned for maximum compatibility.

How and Where to start the quest?

To start the quest all you need to do is pray at any of the shrines to the Eight Divines* (Akatosh, Arkay, Dibella, Julianos, Kynareth, Mara, Stendarr and Zenithat) or the 5 new shrines (Magnus, Phynaster, Y'ffre, Sheor and Pelinal Whitestrake).

* Talos is not included as he's not part of the Bretony Pantheon this mod is based on.

Compatibility

Due to a bug in Dawnguard DLC, Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch (USLEEP) is highly recommended if using the mentioned DLC, otherwise vampires will be pacified by Woodland Grace effect as if they were animals.

Revenge of the Enemies (RotE) carries this bug from Dawnguard DLC, so make sure you also install the latest version of its USLEEP patch to fix it.

Compatible with mods modifying blessings or shrines.

Compatible with Dual Sheath Redux


Updating to 2.X from 1.X

You need to reequip the reliqs for some changes to apply.

Due to the new method of detecting praying, It's highly recommended to finish the praying stages of the quest on pre 2.X version if already started, as updating during the initial praying stages of the quest will result in praying not being detected unless the following console commands are run:
> help PrayDetector
> player.addperk XXXXXX
Where XXXXXX is the ID displayed by the help command.
