Description
===========
Rindir has a new shipment of staves, courtesy of Echonite. Six new animated and one non-animated staves are now on sale at Rindir's Staffs in the Imperial City Market Place. I made these staves unenchanted and set Rindir's inventory to respawn.

Echonite gets the lion share of the credit as I just repackaged and placed them in the game for easy access.

Enjoy!

Location
========
Rindir's Staffs located in the Imperial City Market District.

I repackaged the three files listed under Echonite's original mod Echo Animated Staffs and placed them in game. I didn't use Lhammond's files since it only placed two staves for sale...

I also created an in game menu icon for the Orb staves. The default staff icon looked boring, but I lack the experience to make an Oblivion type graphic icon. If anyone out there has a tutorial I can read, please send me a PM or post it in the comments section.

If you do use this mod and enjoy it, please leave a comment and rate it. I also invite you to visit the original moder's page and rate the file as well. Link.

I have included both regular and OMOD versions. I would recommend the OMOD version as it is MUCH easier to install and uninstall.

I uploaded a Video of the varoius animated staves since still pictures do not showcase them well. The link is located in the mirror section. Also, I will provide a link to Youtube once I upload the file.
