About this mod

Travel to Shal and discover its secrets: the once small cave is now overgrown and even reaches into the nearby Daedric ruin Ashurnibibi.

Permissions and credits

Drop the content of the zip in your Data Files folder, or (recommended) use you favourite mod manager.
MWSE is NOT required, nor is Melchior Dahrk's Atronach Expansion, but our mod will detect if you have those installed and if so will make use of their superior summoning scripts

The safest way to uninstall a mod is with a mod manager.

We are careful to not drastically alter the original cells, so the worst incompatibility you might see is an item floating in Shal.
The grotto in Shal is full of nooks and crannies, if you somehow manage to get stuck between a mushroom and a rock, don't panic, levitate or tcl.
