Keeper Carcette Survives with more Vigilants of Stendarr  by Ruhadre

Ruhadre is pronounced (Ru-ha-dri)


I want to say thank you to all those that have supported, endorsed, encouraged, and assisted my work.  You all are why I mod  :)
Don't forget to give kudos and endorsements to your mod authors and their mods!

Please enjoy my mod!

95 endorsements and rising, heh.  Make sure to tell your friends!


Short Description:  Ever wonder whatever happened to Keeper Carcette after the attack on the Hall of the Vigilant?
This mod helps provide an explanation as to what happened and helps to make Stendarr's Beacon more aesthetic, functional, and immersive.
Lastly, this also adds vigilants to all major cities and most settlements.  It makes the Vigilants of Stendarr appear to be "getting their act together" after the attack, trying to turn Stendarr's Beacon into a new headquarters, and to make their presence felt across Skyrim.  SNNR Patch available.


Current Version: 2.0


Why download this mod?

- Keeper Carcette is now alive and well after the attack, stationed at Stendarr's Beacon.  She is a follower, eligible for marriage, and a fully functioning expert restoration trainer now.
(Vanilla Carcette has bugged training.)

- Stendarr's Beacon was given a nice makeover.  Added decorations, furniture, crafting stations, idle markers, and more npcs.
(Compatible with Stendarr's Beacon Enhanced  http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/40537/)

- Vigilant of Stendarr Quartermaster is a merchant npc at Stendarr's Beacon, who sells a variety of things to the wanna-be Vigilants out there, including a silver sword with a custom enchantment on it.

- Carcette's Journal, which can be found at Stendarr's Beacon, gives her backstory in-game, and reveals several vampire lair locations.

- Stendarr's Little Helper is an armored husky the Vigilants have taken in.  He protects Carcette 24/7 along with her bodyguard  :)
(Yes, his name is a Simpsons reference, lol)

- During the night; Carcette, her dark elf bodyguard, and Stendarr's Little Helper will patrol the route between Stendarr's Beacon and the entrance to Dayspring Canyon.  This gives the impression that the Vigilants are now supporting the Dawnguard, and aggressively guarding the route to the Beacon.

- You will find 2 Vigilants of Stendarr in every major city now, and a single one at any settlement with a tavern.
By day, they travel to taverns, temples, and alchemy shops.  By night, they keep watch over the city for suspicious activity.
They are the eyes and ears of the order, and provide valuable night time protection to cities and towns.
They try to act natural, as to make city guards not overly aware of their presence.  However, they also fully function as city guards too.
23 total, not counting the ones I added to the Beacon.

Explanation - Mods that add guards in the form of Dawnguard, tend to do so as if Dawnguard were actual city guards.  I doubt the jarl would grant jurisdiction to the Dawnguard, or anybody other than his guards for that matter.  So, instead of my Vigilant guards just standing around or going on obvious patrols, I have them acting like normal citizens instead with full ai schedules.  It's all about the immersion baby.

- Yes, I specifically decided to release this mod the day after Easter.  Keeper Carcette has been resurrected after all, heh.

- When Carcette is acting as a follower, her bodyguard and Stendarr's Little Helper will also tag along.  3 followers for the price of one.  With the vampire lair locations from the journal, you'll be all set to go adventuring with your Vigilant squad!

- This mod is a location makeover + extra enchantment + small squad + waifu + extra city guards + Guild HQ + a murder mystery solved....all in one.
(I made this mod to be a must-have for anyone trying to have a better Vigilant of Stendarr experience)

- The SNNR Patch will turn the new Carcette into quite a cutie!  Requires SNNR to work correctly.


(SNNR Carcette)



CHANGELOG:

- 2.0  There are 2 versions.  One without the scar and head bandage, and one with.  Made Carcette into a follower and able to be married.  Created a custom enchantment, put it on a silver sword, and added it to the list of items the Quartermaster will sell.  Created a journal which gives Carcette's backstory after the attack, and reveals several vampire lair locations.  Added some floor furs to help make the top of the beacon cozier.  Moved a snowberry wreath for Stendarr's Beacon Enhanced compatibility.  Added more Vigilants to cities, and added one to each small settlement with a tavern.  Tweaked a lot of various things to make this mod better.  Created SNNR Patch.

- 1.1  The new Carcette now has separate facegendata.  She now sports a scar that fits well with her head bandage.



INSTALLATION:

Download with NMM and Install.
Only install one version.
USLEEP is a requirement!

SNNR Patch:  Must install Normal Version 2.0, and SNNR first.
Project SNNR - Skyrim Nobody NPC Replacer by SRX_timocmbux
SNNR's esp is only required if you want the original Carcette at the Hall and many other NPCs beautified.
Otherwise, you just need the assets for the patch to work.



FUTURE PLANS:

- Getting Carcette to spawn AFTER the attack on the Hall of the Vigilant.
(Currently, during levels 1 through 9, it's possible to run into 2 different Carcettes at the Hall and at the Beacon.)

- Might add Vigilants in the small towns.  (DONE!)

- Converting over to Skyrim Special Edition  (DONE, but needs updated.)

- Converting over to XBOX1  (DONE, but needs updated.)

- Messing with dialogue for the Vigilants.

- Adding Carcette's journal so you can read about her journey to the Beacon from the Hall, in-game.  (DONE!)

- Making Carcette a follower/eligible for marriage.  (DONE!)

- Get Carcette to heal allies.

- SNNR Patch.  (DONE!)

How is she angry?
