About this mod

Julienne is back. This file provides 4 companions, more than 800 new items, more than 50 spells and other various features.

Permissions and credits
Julienne is back.

I used to be a modder and created a mod. I think few people remember me and the mod. The mod used to be on TES Nexus. Circumstances no longer allowed me to stay in the community or share the mod, however. I withdrew the mod, closed my blog and left the community. I continued to improve the mod for fun. After some time, my gaming computer broke down, which compelled me to stop modding. The mod was improved from ver 6.2 to ver 6.4.

This is the mod. I happened to find it in my removable hard drive when I was deleting unnecessary data. I believe that this mod is now out-of-date. Few people will want it. However, allow me to share it again. I could not delete it.

Two years have passed since my gaming computer broke down. I still do not have one and I forgot how to mod. Even if you report a problem with this mod, I cannot fix it for the above reasons. I cannot even play Oblivion. I am sorry, but I am not a modder I used to be. Your understanding would be appreciated.

You can do whatever you wish with this mod without my permission. Enjoy anything if you feel like it.

The readme and the manual are slightly revised.

If you have any difficulty in meeting Mystina's demand or seeing the extra companion, I would refer you to my post at 15:17 on 3 July 2011 on the comment thread for this mod. Thank you.

First fo all, English is not my primary language. You may find some strange and/or rude expressions in this description and the manual of this mod. There may be also wrong expressions in the books that this mod provides. Your understanding and patience would be greatly appreciated.

I hope that you will enjoy the various features of this mod. All fundamental features as a companion mod are of course included. Although this file adds more than 800 objects, they do not affect those of original Oblivion negatively since they are added as new ones.

The merits of the companions in this mod are their flexibleness, unique personality and unique specialization. You can, for example, order some of them to change their combat styles, primary weapon, adjust their spells and so on. However, every companion is not meant to be perfect. Each of them has flaws as well as beauties. For exapmle, the alchemist Julienne carries ingredients and potions, and will help you by offering alchemic services, but she is mean as a fighter. The swordsman Ophelia fights fiercely and offers the work to forge weapons, but there will be few things that you can specially order her to do. The assassin Melissa can perform any part in combat by changing her class, but she does not exceed the others in each specialization. The sorceress Mystina has deadly spells, much Magicka and excellent resistance to magic, and you can turn on/off her specific schools of magic, but she will be frail if involved in melee combat. If you have already downloaded this mod, please check the manual, where you can check further information.

All the objects except for other authors' creations are visually same as those of original Oblivion or those whose mesh is altered . Please do not expect visually new objects. I have no talent nor skill to create objects from the beginning. The difference is their unique effects and performance by attaching script, enhancing their attributes, or combining various effects. Please just ignore the appearance not being refined even though it disappoints you. I hope you will put their 'effects' to good use, not their 'appearance'. If you have already downloaded this mod, please read up on further information described on the manual.

This mod adds lots of things, but there is no need to know everything about the mod in advance. For example, if you would like to use only a companion, you will need to check in the manual only the information on the companion. Also, you can often get necessary information at the same time when you get something new. You will, for exapmle, get a book or the kind in the game to tell you how to use item/spells. Of course, it would be best to read up in advance on all the texts in the manual, but I hope you will enjoy this mod in your way at your own risk. Nevertheless, one thing strongly recommended is that you hesitate to use what you do not know how to use. Please check the manual whenever you face something unknown. Without knowing appropriate use, a few features might cause your game to break in game-blance, or literally break in the loss of essential things like Nirnroot or important NPCs.

Thank you very much for your understanding and patience.

What to download
The latest archive contains all the requirements. Also, it comes with the Japanese readme and manual.

How to use
Please read the manual in each archive for further information.

Requirements, Conflicts & Incompatible mods
Requirements => None
Each archive contains all the requirements.

Conflicts => None known
Although some suspicious matters were known as to the previous version, but few conflicts will occur in the last release, because the location of Julienne's shop has been moved to a new cell. Some objects remain in Chorrol, but they have been adjusted so that they may not interfere with the mods that edit Chorrol cells, like open cities or overhaul-mods.

Incompatible mods => One mod
"5 Explosives" by Pela/Quistena (me)
If you would use this mod, that will need to be un-installed.

Bugs & Problems
No bugs known at present.
No problems known at present.

Before Installation
Before using this file, please backup your save data file just in case. It is not absolutely required, because I have never found any bugs in my test. Nevertheless, I would strongly recommend you to protect yourself.

To set the objects normally, it would be recommended to start a game in which your player character is not in/near Chorrol. For the Chorrol cell and the Chorrol South gate cell is used as the initial location of the objects that this mod provides. The above process is required only on the first instance.

CAUTION! (for users of previous versions)
The latest version is quite different from old ones. It might cause some problems to overwrite old files with new ones. It would be recommended to clean your save data by un-installing the previous version that you are using. First, take away all your items from the companions' inventory or the additional boxes, lest your items be deleted when the the old version is un-installed. After the old version is removed, start the game without installing the new version. Then, save the game, which will get it cleaned. Afterwards, install the new version.

Copy the following file and folders into the "Data" folder where TES4 Oblivion is installed (Oblivion/Data). Then, activate the esp as a Data file from the Oblivion Launcher.


See also the "Options" section below.

You have the four options to adjust this mod to your tatse.

1. Swear Filter Option:
You can turn on/off bad language which a character in this mod uses.

2. Game Balance Option 1:
You can decide whether recruiting more powerful followers requires your level to be higher. The topic to recruit a companion will not show up until your level reaches:
10 (Julienne)
15 (Melissa)
20 (Ophelia)
25 (Mystina)
30 (The extra companion)

3. Game Balance Option 2:
You can decide whether the companions are tagged as essential NPCs.

4. Fast Travel Option:
You can disable Fast Travel if you wish. This option is made originally for my personal use.

You will find the option menus to come out automatically in the first run. Please adjust as you like. Should you have no idea which ones suit you, it would be recommended to reply:
"Yes" to Option 1
"No" to Option 2
"Yes" to Option 3
"Yes" to Option 4
Perhaps, the above would be a safe choice to most players.

Set up the options of this mod after other mods have been set up, or set up other mods after the options of this mod have been set up.

Ver 6.2

This file requires the main file (Ver 6.1).

1. Install "1st Alchemy Companions Julienne ver 6.1".
2. Replace ver 6.1 esp with this ver 6.2 esp.


1. Some weapons added to Mystina's inventory.
You can buy them.

2. Mystina's inventory revised.
The power of the weapons in this mod are adjusted in the interest of game balance. They are more expensive than those in previous versions. Of course, their power is made a little more powerful according to their price. This revision intends to give players more oppotunity to use original weapons provided by vanila Oblivion. For I thought it would be spoiling if Mystina's inventory should discourage players to use original stuff like quest rewards. Even the cheapest sword that Mystina sells costs at least 50,000 Gold. Enchanted arrows are even more expensive. The reason is that arrows in an NPC's inventory are unexausted. As you see, once you give your comapnion a powerful arrow, he/she can shoot it parmanently and easily kill your enemy with one or a few shots. I hope the new price will fit in.

3. A spell "Invitation" added.
It has an NPC join a new faction "Companions" that increases by 100 points its members' disposition towards other members. It will be effective against the unnecessary and annoying combat between companions to use this spell and have them all join the faction. The use is quite simple. You only have to cast the spell to each and every companion of yours. They will be good friends. You will find a book named "How to make 'em good friends" in a chest upstairs in Julienne's shop. You will need to meet Mystina's demand to make the chest available, but if you choose "hard mode" in the game balance option 1, the chest is available from the beginning.

4. The spell "Prying Eyes" extended.
In addition to a target's attributes and skill levels, you can view his/her aggression, confidence and responsibility. With the additional information on NPCs, you will be able to judge which ones suit for your companions, if you like recruiting original NPCs using mods like "Companion Share and Recruit". For unconfident NPCs tend to easily run away in combat, and aggressive ones tend to easily start fighting with those who they hate.

5. Fast Travel Option removed.
Although the previous version provided Fast Travel Option, it turned out not to work well as intended. So, it is removed. Please have my apologies.

6. Companion Ring added.
This ring is just an enchanted ring that increases Athletic skill and Speed. You may often feel it is harder for your companion to follow you according as your Speed gets higher. This ring will simply solve it. If you think this is nothing but a cheat, please withhold using this ring. However, it will not be a big cheat even though much powerful, because only NPCs can equip this ring. You can get the ring from a chest upstairs in Julienne's shop. You will need to meet Mystina's demand to make the chest available, but if you choose the above "hard mode" in the game balance option 1, the chest is available from the beginning.

7. Brave's Plume added.
This plume increases its possessor's Confidence by 100 points. If your companion is so unconfident as to always run away in combat, try giving him/her this plume. It might be a good idea to give the Adoring Fan this plume. As you already see, you only have to place this plume into his/her inventory. You can get the ring from a chest upstairs in Julienne's shop. You will need to meet Mystina's demand to make the chest available, but if you choose above "hard mode" in the game balance option 1, the chest is available from the beginning.

8. Game Balance Option 1 extended.
You have one more option. You can choose even "very hard mode" where the companions will not join you until your level get even higher. However, some more items are available in return, which may suit you if you are more interested in powerful items than companions. It may be said that "very hard mode" will suit a player who are going to re-start "New Game".

9. Game Balance Option added.
One more option has been added that allows you to decide whether powerful weapons and armors require your level to be high enough. If you choose its "Hard Mode", you can not trade with Melissa until your level reaches 20, and can not trade with Mystina until your level reaches 25. Please put this option to good use if the absence of level requirement in regard to powerful stuff discourages you to use vanilla stuff.

1st Alchemy Companion Julienne v6.4

1. Some items added.

2. The power of additional weapons is considerably reduced in the interests of game balance.

3. A companion utility added.

4. Horse riding mode expanded.
