Oblivion 1.2.416
Shivering Isles (the mod will work without it, but Vlarian will not sweep)


Adds the option to hire a servant for Arborwatch once you have purchased all the upgrades.


Arborwatch is a fine house, with a fine servan'ts quarters, but not a servant in sight. With this mod, once you have bought and fully furnished Arborwatch (making it a house fit for domestic staff...), you will now be able to hire a servant through Seed-Neeus at Northern Goods and Trade. Your servant, Vlarian Orius will provide you with food and drink, and generally make himself handy about the house. Mostly by sweeping. He also brings a few odds and ends with him to the servant's quarters.

All of Vlarian's dialogue is voiced and lip synced, but not with new dialogue - I have repurposed some vanilla lines for him. At least you won't get that disconcerting silent stare from him.

The process for acquiring your servant:

1. Buy Arborwatch
2. Buy all (yes, all) of Seed-Neeus' upgrades for the house
3. Exit the shop
4. When you return (even if you turn around and walk straight back in), Seed-Neeus will have Vlarian's contract for sale. The base price is 175 septims - a little more than Skingrad's servant, but Seed-Neeus will adjust according to mercantile (agency fees, I should think).
5. Go home and meet your new servant.

If you have already bought and furnished Arborwatch before loading the mod, Seed-Neeus should already have the contract for sale.
