Imperial Presence
By cml33

Version: 1.14
Requires: Morrowind, Tribunal and Bloodmoon


* Randomized imperial guards by face, race, and gender. Imperial males are still the most likely guards to appear, but other guards will appear as well.
* Guards now called Imperial Guards. Imperial guards in the game used to simply be called “Guard”. This mod changes their name to Imperial Guard. This way their title is more specific to the type of guard they are.
* Adds more imperial soldiers and archers to imperial forts. They always did look poorly defended to me.
* Expanded quarters for imperial soldiers. Vanilla Morrowind never had large enough quarters for the imperial soldiers. This is even more noticeable with the new archers and soldiers I added. This mod will include my Census and Excise Office Quarters mod.
* Minor tweaks to the inventories of guards and few NPCs. It never made sense to me that Larrius Varro with his two-handed weapon still carried a shield and that Calcortius Albuttian, the second highest ranking member of the legion, was wearing the regular guard armor instead of the high ranking templar armor. This mod corrects these things and also adds restore health potions to imperial guards.

Drag the plugin into your Data Files folder and select it in the Morrowind launcher.

Uncheck the mod in the Morrowind launcher and remove it from your data files. You may want to clean your save afterwards.

This mod will conflict with mods that alter the interior of imperial forts in any significant way as well as mods that modify the imperial guards. I've tried to keep the changes to the imperial forts to a minimum. A patch for Necessities of Morrowind has been included with the mod.
