Please, if you like the armor don't forget to [RATE] (upthere in the right part of the page), VOTE and so on.
A lot of time and effort were invested to create it and much will be invested in future.

The latest official patch Oblivion 1.2.416 or Oblivion Shivering Isles 1.2.416
The items will not appear ingame if you don't have patched game.
7-zip (File archiver with a high compression ratio for extracting the archives you download)

Oblivion Mod Manager (OBMM)
Utility for managing plugins, and also for packing them for distribution. Automatically installs and uninstalls the OMOD versions of a mod and prevents eventually wrong manual install.


Dread Knight Armor v.1.1 adds Dread Knight Armor set to the game - male and female version (including open and full helm), enchanted and unenchanted, daedric equivalent (shield not included). Custom meshes and textures.
Dread Knight Armor v.1.0 is not needed. If you have it installed directly overwrite it with v1.1.
You will not get two sets of armor but just a full set depending of your character's gender (it would be ridiculous a male character to be able to wear the female version and the opposite). And it is heavy armor set with no naked skin. I'll upload a patch allowing to see the beauty of Robert's male and Raiar's and Madcat221's HGEC female forms and skin.

Weapons and Armor mod it is.
Don't expect plot and quests 'cause my scripting skills are None (with capital "N"). There is only a simple quest of obtaining the set.

Why Dread Knight?
Because it had to sound "dreadly" and it is close to Death Knight concept but I wanted to avoid any criticism like "WOW have no place here". This is Oblivion mod despite any resemblances with other games.

WARNING! The high polycount of the models could cause lag at low-end computers. WARNING!
(If the Lich King's Armor works for you this one shouldn't be a problem)

Please, if you don't like the armor, if you are very pretentious member with high requirements about the questline (which doesn't exist here), if it lags on your computer or whatever - PASS on and don't troll around. The mod is exactly what it was meant to be 'cause it was made according to my fantasy and taste.

The enchanted version you can find in Moranda ruins (see the map images - northwest from the IC). Go to the lowest level and kill the marauders to obtain the armor. It is recommended your character to be around 25-th level to succeed (well if you're playing at easy difficulty maybe less).
The enchantments are very subjectiv� stuff so if you don't like'em go to Rohssan's "A Fighting Chance" in Imperial City Market District and buy replica of the armor to enchant it yourself. It's a separate vendor chest so no collisions with other mods are expected. It is also "respawnable" chest which means after three days game time you can buy another set of the armor.

1. Extract the archive anywhere on your hard disk. Take the folders meshes, textures and the Dread Knight Armor.esp file and place them into your Oblivion\Data folder. Click "Yes to all" when asked.
2. In Oblivion Launcher open "Data Files" and place a checkmark beside the Dread Knight Armor.esp.
I recomend you to use the OMOD version of the mod. You'll need Oblivion Mod Manager (OBMM) - the link is up in the Recomended section.

1. Start Oblivion Launcher, open Data Files and uncheck Dread Knight Armor.
2. Delete the files/folders associated with the mod:

Oblivion\Data\Dread Knight Armor.esp
Oblivion\Data\meshes\armor\DreadKnightArmor folder
Oblivion\Data\Textures\armor\DreadKnightArmor folder
Oblivion\Data\Textures\menus\icons\armor\DreadKnightArmor folder.


Known Issues or Bugs
The Helm is not conformulated because there are two meshes in the nif file and the Conformulator works only with single meshes (the second is the "shadow" mesh before the face). Possible cuts with argonian's and khajiit's heads. Works fine with humanoids.
