Along time ago a well traveled wizard whose name has since been forgotten decided to retire and run an inn and tavern in the secluded Forgotten Vale he had grown to love so much over his long life of adventuring. He knew that very few people would have need of the services of an inn or the companionship of a tavern in this rarely traveled part of Tamriel. Unwilling to choose between his peaceful valley and the company of his many friends that lived scattered across the land he enchanted many pairs of what he called "doors of far opening". He installed these magic doors in the homes of his most dear friends and in the cellar of his inn naming the establishment "The Crossroads Inn". In this way he lived out his old age constantly surrounded by those he cared for.......

He had no family or heirs so the inn was left to neglect and decay eventually to be forgotten in the dark void of time. However the cellar of the old Crossroads Inn still survives today thanks to the spells of protection the old wizard put in place to protect and stabilize such a large concentration of teleportation magic. The only remaining physical entrances to the cellar are an abandoned well behind the ruins of the old inn located near the ancient snow elf Wayshrine of Sight and an abandoned dwemer lift shaft originating from the very heart of Blackreach in Sun City.

Welcome to the Crossroads Cellar, "Where the elite meet to eat... and drink."

This mod is part of a series of mods I made to work together. Other modules in the series include:

Hearthfire Guards and Fortifications - Walkable walls, 10 guards and more - found here: http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrimspecialedition/mods/10101?
A Follower - Follower pack currently has 8 magic users and 8 fighters with living quarters in Winterhold and Karthspire - found here: To be published soon.
Sky Haven Temple Restored - Sky Haven Temple cleaned-up/expanded plus 4 strong Dragonrider Blessings - found here: To be published.

Description:

All 22 doors in the cellar require keys to unlock for use. Most keys are found in a small chest or lockbox located near the player bed at each player home. The Blackreach key is located by the crimson nirnroot on the ledge behind the lift down from the Sun City throne platform. The Thieves Guild key is near the Guild Master's desk. The Nightingale Hall key is on a boulder near the back wall of the main room/cave. The Tel Mithryn key is near the staff enchanter. The 3 Hearthfire keys are behind the ladder in each basement. The Forgotten Vale key is in the cabin.

At one end of the display hall is a wall sized map that upon activation produces an unlimited supply of removable hold guard shields for each hold only if the player has become thane of that hold. A guard shield can be placed on display without being thane if you already have the correct shield. When activated the civil war banner display will only display the banner of the victor of the war when the war has been won. Door banners appear when the door is unlocked.

You will find the Dwarven Duplication Cube on a display shelf. The Duplicator will copy any objects put into it with their enchantments intact with the exception of player enchanted items. Player enchantments will not be copied at this time but hopefully will be in the future. (If you have a scripted method to duplicate a reference instead of just the base please let me know about it) Some display items are quest items that are lost to the player after the quest is over. To display missing items after the quest is completed (or if you use it to disenchant) it will need to be duplicated BEFORE you lose the original item to the quest or by learning its enchantment.

There are labeled displays for most unique items in the game. If there are multiple versions of an item the item returned when you pick it back up from the display will be the best version of the item. 56 mannequins, 48 shield/crossed weapon plaques and 96 weapon racks are provided to display unique or ordinary armor/weapon sets. 24 single weapon plaques are provided to display Thane/Hold weapons or any other single weapons you may want to see on your "wall of glory". General Stores is used for themed auto-storage.

Four new NPCs work in the tavern and live in the cabin with the 5th bed being used as the rented bed for the barkeeper to rent if you need to rent a room. If you rent a room the barkeeper will walk you about halfway to the cabin before going back to work so you must find the bed on your own. The Bard has the regular bard menu and the hearthfire bard menu but no voice for the hearthfire menu. The HF instrumental request works with or without using subtitles to read the bard's response. Both the merchant and the fence have extra gold for big purchases.

To give many player followers a common place to gather, all vanilla housecarls and many other NPCs have an additional AI package that makes them spend one or more days a week visiting the Crossroads Cellar Tavern to eat, drink and be merry. To ensure vanilla quest integrity all NPC Tavern AI packages are conditioned to begin when the main quest for that NPC's faction has been completed. (Companions, College of Winterhold, Thieves Guild, Dawnguard...etc) Although no NPCs will visit the tavern until their main quest is finished some NPCs are involved in minor vanilla side quests and may be missing from their expected location if it is a tavern visiting day for them. If this happens just go find them in the CC Tavern (they'll sober up quick if they're drunk) or leave the quest area, wait a day (T- key), and then try it again.

Requests for additions:

There is still room in the tavern for more NPCs. New tavern visitors should be main characters or followers. There are two variable doors that I have left open for patches to other mods so that you can include your favorite player homes and/or new world-space mods. Please post your suggestions for additional vanilla/DLC tavern visitors or where you would like additional patch-doors to connect to.

Please post your screenshots if you produce any good ones.

Have fun everyone,
