Permissions and credits
Name: Chain it ! pose pack
Version: 2.0
Date: 6/18/2009
Category: Animation
Author(s): Cha0s_lord
Source: http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=25223

This mod includes 19 poses which will allow you to chain your character ( or any NPC ). 16 are unique, 3 are variations of others.
I have also included 4 poses which were only available as a ressource before.

This mod will add a crystal to activate the poses on you, and a touch spell to activate it on NPCs. To use the crystal just use it like any other item ( left-click in your inventory, then close your inventory ). To save time assign it to a shortcut.
IMPORTANT NOTE : you NEED to be in 3rd person view to activate a pose.
I always thought, as many people, that a mod like this was missing. Well, now it isn't.
It has only been tested with HGEC body. It may have clipping issues with other body meshes and especially male bodies ( which seem to have bigger ankles and wrists ).

1. Extract the files to a temporary location.
2. Examine the folder structure and make corrections where necessary.
3. Copy files to (install folder)\Oblivion\Data\, and respect the file tree
4. Start Oblivion Launcher, click 'Data Files', place a checkmark beside the .esp file(s).

1. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the .esp file(s).
2. Delete the files/folders associated with the mod.


This mod is confirmed to require oblivion latest patch. If you don't have it, don't even try to run it, it won't work.
It is unknown if there are conflicts with some animations replacers. If you find the mod isn't working, first try disabling them before posting.

Known Issues or Bugs
Some minor clipping problems in unimportant areas.

This mod is aiming at giving people screenshooting opportunities. As such, there are issues I am aware of but that I won't solve :
-The poses are reseted when you exit the cell
-There is no movement restrictor ( except on 1 but it does not seem to block NPCs... it was an experiment ). You need to use another mod or the console for it.
-There is no position adjuster. You need to move the NPC yourself ( with a mod ) in order to connect chains to a wall.

You can find me on TESNexus as 'Cha0s_lord'


I recommend using this mod on flat gounds ( like in Ayleid ruins, towers, towns, houses... ). Otherwise there may be clipping issues with the ground.
You can find another mod in the same spirit, although ADULT MOD (CTAddpose Hentai) at
CTAddpose Hentai requires OBSE.

And another one if you still don't have enough : http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=32512

Whatever is in the "torture" folder is not made by me. Do not ask for any kind of support about it.


Thanks to Bethesda for creating Oblivion.
Thanks to the authors of CTAddpose Hentai, gobu and Bondage Sex.
Thanks to Pizz and Lera for OSRposes.

You can do whatever you want with this mod but all I ask in return is that
you give me credit if you distribute any part of this mod. I would also like
to know what mods are including my work.
You MAY NOT use any part of this mod for commercial purposes, including (but not limited to) creating a paid mod for the steam workshop.

I do not allow the publishing of this mod on any other site
without prior consent.


Here are the most likely problems you may encounter, which are all easy to solve. Post in comments the problems which are not covered here

When I launch oblivion nothing happens, the crystal and the spell are not added
->Activate your esp file by using OBMM or the vanilla oblivion launcher

When I use the crystal or the spell nothing happens
->Check you placed the Cha0s_lord folder in Oblivion\Data\meshes\characters\_male\idleanims

When I use the crystal or the spell the character takes the pose but the restraints do not appear or have a strange color
->Check you placed the prison folder in Oblivion\Data\Textures

If this doesn't solve your problem then download CTAddpose gobu from the link and check it works ( or not... )
IF it works THEN there is a real problem with my mod and post a comment
IF NOT try to download Oblivion Script Extender (OBSE). Warn me if it solved the problem, IF IT DIDNT I CAN DO NOTHING FOR YOU ( the problem would come from the basis I used for my mod and that I don't know anything about ).

Note about missing textures : it may happen that I forget to type my texture path... as a hotfix you can create a copy of the prison folder ( keep the original one ) and rename it Mpose. Put it in your textures folder. Also post a comment so that I clean my mod.
