0. Gaining Access to Belda Elysium Manor
There is a Key on a Silver Platter, to the left of the Front Door.

You can also speak to Myrisi'l or Sylvian-Lir to get a Key: They often wander outside, in the Grounds of the Manor.
They Do NOT wander outside the Manor Grounds, so you do Not have to go search all over Tamriel for them.

1. Introduction

This mod add a 3 level manor house, with a basement, balconies, stables and landscaped grounds next to the Belda Ayleid ruins in the Heartlands region of Tamriel.
It also includes two servants, a pet cat and Boney, the Alchemy-Sorter skull, (see below for full details) and several Quests.

The KEY to the Manor can be found on a Silver Platter to the left of the Front Door.
AND/OR you can get a Key from either Servant Sylvian-Lir or Myrisi'l if you see them wandering in the Grounds of the Manor.

ALL containers are safe to store personal items, they do not respawn.

V1.5 Continues the Quest 'Shadows Over Elysium' that was started in v1.4.  This second installment is called: 'Path  of Ascensyon'.  In addition to this main quests are two sub-quest that are introduced as the player progresses.  These sub-quests are related specifically to the Sisters/Servants, Myrisi'l and Sylvian-Lir, and once completed will allow the player to dedicate what outfits each sister will wear.  The Romance between the player and the sisters are also continued throughout v1.5

V1.4 Also Includes a Quest:  'Shadows Over Elysium', the Player can undertake.  
The Quest directly relates to the house and all who live there, but is Not a Quest to get the house.  That is given freely to he player and explained why in the Dialogue & Scrolls about the manor.  

(See 4. Version History, to quickly see what has been added to version 1.4)



  # # NB:  This  "Shadows Overs Elysium" Music Video Contains MAJOR SPOILERS to the 1st Quest  # #
I would strongly recommend you watch it AFTER completing the 1st Quest
The Adventures of Raimyr and Boney Continue in my Skyrim Let's Play!

Wach the new Season: Part 3 Episode 78 - Ascensyon: In the Beginning!


To find the House:

(view the map screenshot included with the Belda Elysium.esp file) If you have already found the Ayleid Ruin "BELDA" (north east of the Imperial City) then simply Fast Travel there, you can't miss the Manor House.

Otherwise: Starting from the sewer exit you started the game at, Cross the water in front of you (north east) that leads to the Ayleid ruin "Vilverin",   Keep Vilverin on your right and the shore line on your left and head about 30 meters past it to the Imperial "Rod Ring Road".  Here you should see a set on white marble stone steps heading up a steep hillside.  Follow this path East up the hill and it will lead you directly to Belda Elysium.

*** I am happy for others to include Belda Elysium (or parts of it) in their own Mods but I would greatly appreciate full Credits for my Work. An email about what you are working on would be nice too, but not mandatory.***

### QUESTS ###

Please see the seperate read me file (BeldaElysium-x.x_Quests.txt) for details about how to start

the Quest and also a full Walk-Through.

    Romance Quests continue.
        NB: the romance quests are hidden and does not appear on the Quest Journal.

    Myrisi'l Romance (inc. mini-quests)
    Sylvian-Lir Romance (inc. mini-quests)

### OUTSIDE ###

- "Illumination Within" Window Lights: (Does NOT require the official 'Illumination Within' plug-in MOD to work).  Placed on each window of Belda Elysium.

"This lights up the house windows in the evening and during dark stormy weather; and turns them off again in the morning. The "glow" of the windows are new meshes (and Lights) overlaid on top of the original window pane, and scripts control when they turn on/off. Night-time with this mod running makes for a totally different gameplay experience."

- Large Ayleid Water Fountain; lit up by four Aylied Crystal Lights.  The player can turn on and off the water and lights at will.
- Archery Targets in backgarden.  Also used by Servant Myrisi'l.
- A dirt path winds its way up the hillside to the Manor House, from the
Imperial road opposite the  prison sewer exit. (game start: across the river infront of the Ayleid ruins)
- Beautifully designed walled Garden and Grounds built into the side of the Belda Ayleid Ruins.
- Separate walled-in stables
- Top Floor Balcony over looking Lake Rumare and the Imperial City
- Rear Ground Level Balcony viewing the eastern valley and waterfalls below.
- Small fruit & vegetable garden at back of the house.

### INSIDE ###

New to v1.4:  Natural Lighting:  The ambient lighting in the above ground room slowly change as the sun rises and sets.  The basement has fixed ambient lighting.
(Players can choose to install Fixed Lighting  esp-version if they prefer).

I wanted to concentrate on lighting to improve the atmosphere of each area.  
The Main Rooms are brightly lit, whereas the Bedroom and Basement are
suitably darker.  I wanted to make the Main rooms bright and airy; to
welcome you home, whereas for the bedroom I created dimmer lights getting
you in the mood to retire to bed.

I have spent a large amount of time to ensure that you do NOT need
to carry a torch around your own house. I felt that many buildings in
Oblivion were lit too darkly. There's creating atmosphere, and then there's
realism.  You should not have to carry a torch into the shop/tavern to see
the proprietor clearly!

There are "In-character" Scrolls about the house that walks the character
through the importance contents of each room.


There are two Servants, experienced adventurers, that have volunteered to act as tutors/advisers/servants for the player.  They are Dunmer Sisters, named Myrisi'l and Sylvian-Lir.  This is all explained in their dialogue and "El'Eluril 2nd letter" which you'll find on the cabinet in the MainRooms - Lower.  They can be found wandering inside & outside Elysium.  A pet black cat "Chemie", belonging to Myrisi'l can also be found wandering the bedroom and alchemy room upstairs.

You will not get all their dialogue at the start, some require time and others charm.

New to V1.4.  Introduced Affection/Respect Tokens that the player can earn via their actons and dialogue options, from the Sister and Boney, respectively.  Without which, gifts and/or further romance dialogue options will not come availble to the player, (this will be expanding further in the next update).
    ~  Myrisi'l:  Battle-Mage, will act as Elysium's Guard. She will ensure that the house in protected during the day and patrols the grounds at night.  She will also Recharge Magical items and Tutor the player in Illusionary Magicka.

    ~  Sylvian-Lir:  Cleric of Azura.  She takes responsibility for the daily running of the house, gardening, cooking and maintaining the stables.   She can tutor you in Restoration Magicka and repair any damage weapons and armour.

###  NB. New to V1.40+:  Due to the importance of the Sisters in the Quest I have released (and further quests I plan to release later), I have made the Sister 'Essential' so they cannot die.  Once the Quest arch has been completed then I will revert them to the normal death procedure below

SERVANT's DEATH / Normal Death Procedure:  
### NB.  V1.50:  the sisters are 'Essential' by Default ####

The Sister Myrisi'l and Sylvian-Lir can be made Non-Essential by either:

A)  Console Command (if you fancy the Challenge) /  setessential <ID> 0 to mark as non essential.
B) Completing the Main Quest.  (NB: Main Quest Conclusion Part 3: HODF - has not yet been released!),

Once Non- Essential (meaning they CAN die) and they have take sufficient damage they  will fall into a critically injured state.  However, they can also be revived from this critial injured state.  To do so the player must use a Full GRAND soul Gem.  By releasing the power of the gem they will be resurrected. The player can of course choose NOT to resurrect them.  Should the worse happen and the player is unable (or unwilling) to resurrect them, their bodies will be buried at the back of the BELDA ruin.  A crypt and head stone will be erected to mark their final resting place. Any belongings on the deceased will be transferred automatically to the player. The remaining servant will react to her sisters death!  Her disposition towards the player will be severely reduced: you are the Hero after all and are expected to stop this sort of thing from happening. However, there are other ways the player can make amends.

    ~  Chemie.  A black tabby cat.  More than a mere pet.  Actually a magical entity, owned & created by Myrisi'l.   Simply stroking Chemie can bring the player goodluck (Fortify Luck +5/300seconds); Should Chemie be injured, she can be healed my feeding her crab-meat: Chemie will show her appreciation of this treat by temporarily improving the person Magicka (Fortify Magicka 50/300seconds).  Finally should Chemie be killed she can be brought back to life!  The player must have on his possession a PETTY SOUL GEM filled with a PETTY Soul, (anything else is unsuitable for the ritual and cannot be used. e.g. You CANNOT use a Common Soul Gem filled with a PETTY soul).

New to V1.5:     'Chemie' now has a cat-bed on all three levels of the main house.  And the player can also instruct Chemie which floor he/she wants Chemie to prowl on.
