About this mod

Diversifies the racial makeup of generic enemy NPCs

Welcome to the thirtieth installment of my Oblivion Immersion Series.  Here we are at number 30!  This mod started out from a simple “Hey, wouldn’t it be nice if I didn’t run into one of the same five bandits every twenty feet?”  Alas, my mods are like fishing stories, they get bigger with each revisiting.  Because “why can’t we have more than three faces for the dark elf bandit archers?” became “why is it that dark elves are only allowed to be bandit archers?”  And for that matter, why don’t conjurers allow anyone other than Bretons and Altmer to join their ranks?  Surely there is at least one Dunmer in Cyrodiil who dreams of an illustrious career as a bandit hedge wizard, squatting in desolate ruins and camps, and hurling fireballs when some hapless hero stumbles in.  Talk about racist hiring practices.

To this end, this mod diversifies the races that can appear as certain types of enemy NPCs.  Bandits, marauders, sorcerers, necromancers, and vampires have all been expanded to better reflect Cyrodiil's ethnic distribution and according to each race's most prominent abilities.  As a macro-example of what I mean: combat-inclined races like Nords will still be over-represented in warrior roles, but may appear as magic or stealth-inclined classes too.  In another example, generic  necromancers only consisted of High Elves and Bretons in vanilla, but now all other races will appear amongst their ranks, but with Dunmer and Imperials dominating.  And in a last example, the only vampire rogues that appeared in the vanilla game were Redguards, but now other races can appear as vampire rogues, with Khajiit and Imperials predominating.  Also, beast-race vampires will now appear int he game, since vampire Argonians and Khajiit were missing from the base game.

Here is a break-down of the number of NPCs added to each generic enemy type:

- Conjurers: 26 total
- Necromancers: 26 total
- Vampires: 48 total
- Bandits: 54 total
- Marauders: 60 total

Version 1.1 makes a number of bug fixes (see the change log).
