Important Notes:

Welcome beloved faithful! In order to craft these sacred relics, one must note the relevant Sources.

Should you find yourself without AWKCR, your crafting will be done at a Chem station.

IMPORTANT, NEOPHYTE! Future alterations will likely REQUIRE AWKCR!

For the time being, enjoy this morsel. 


A genesis! A rebirth! See now the weapons of yesterday and the armor of yesteryear are here! Take note!

Ashland Item Audit:

- Gamma Repeater

A heavy weapon that fires surges of gamma radiation, blessing the ground with Atom's Glow!

- Gamma Grenade

A relic of the past, this grenade will saturate a given area with the Glow! Enemies behind cover will gain little from it, I assure you!

- Dread Inquisitor Armor

Worn by the most pious of the Inquisitors, this armor is available with and without a blade! Such grace!

- Gammawalker Armor

Guardians of the Sacred Sentinel Site wear this protective gear, bear it well child!

- Crimson Stalker Armor

A light, lithe leather armor for those stalking within Atom's veil! Available without shoes for the ultimate stealth experience!

- Sigil of Atom

This craftable item from Artificer Eskanonen will turn Atomites friendly! Be WARNED, may not function if wearing powered armor!

- ASHLAND Armor (NEW!)

Incursions from the Ashland Homestead upon the shores of the Dead Lakes Wasteland have brought us new faithful with frightening armor! Rejoice as our enemies are scattered before us!


- Holy water: Water blessed with Atom's Glow!
- Gutworms: Boiled from dogmeat in blessed waters, these ravenous parasites will consume addiction causing compounds and other maladies!
- Scourging Purgative: Unblessed may wish to scourge their body, and gain the Glow anew! This chemical cocktail will do just the thing!
- Water Angels: Microscopic fungi crust formations can be ingested, granting a weak long-term, glow consuming blessing. Be warned, if your body can not sustain great amounts of Glow, make use of the Scourging Purgative. Angels should be ingested before seeking Atom's Glow!
- MoThEr's Milk: A derivative of jet, water taken from the holiest of holy sites in Far Harbor will grant its believers substantial power!
- Waster's Delight: A delectable can of proteins and derived insoluble matter! Not for just any tourist, of course.


All armor takes up your 33 slot, and all helmets take up the hair/headband slots. Want to swap out your favorite gas mask? You'll find the myriad helms to your liking!

This will ideally be available for consoles in the future! 


This armor was created for my version of Nora. I'm a writer more than a screen archer and doubly more than a modder. If you are interested in seeing what a Raider-Gone-CoA Nora looks like, and you are not sensitive to violent or adult themes, feel free to see my gallery for more. Due to their macabre nature, reader discretion is advised. You have been warned.

Thirdstorm: Thank you for your help. Seriously. There have been numerous time in which this mod would have collapsed under its own weight. Like Karna5 below, you were patient with my pace of learning. You helped see a small outfit mod turn into a full-fledged overhaul.

Karna5: Nothing about this mod would have been successful without your assistance. Thank you, thank you very much. You turned a writer into an official modder.

Crimsomrider: Crimsonrider, as well as being amazing, is also informative, patient, and skilled. While Karna helped me get the armor mashed together, Crimsonrider threw up the hood and found any missing pieces that could prove detrimental to your armor wearing experience! 

Elianora: Thank you for the video you posted on YouTube. Seeing the crafting in FO4edit done in person was awesome.

Ascendia: Thank you for your kind words, always. You got me into the art of screen archery, and I utilize your mods in the screenshots. 

IheartRunningman: What's a screen archer without their favorite ENB? Shoutout to this guy! 

Avallonkao: Supremely talented, Nora wouldn't look the same without this guy. Check out his textures!

Other Shoutouts in no particular order!
