About this mod

Adds 5 outposts for the Imperial Legion Foresters

Permissions and credits
Welcome to the forty seventh installment to my Oblivion Immersion Series.  The Legion Foresters represent yet another incredibly underdeveloped part of Oblivion.  It's good that they are there, don't get me wrong, but their presence is so minimal that the player rarely encounters them.  Not to mention that the foresters seem to have absolutely no supporting infrastructure.  Hence I made this mod, a lighter, not crash-happy successor to Legion-Occupied Forts. 

A total of five outposts have been added, all of which offer services to the player.  Further, the total number of foresters found in the overworld has been approximately doubled to make the foresters more plentiful. 

This mod comes in two major versions:

- Vanilla Armor: uses the vanilla legion armor

- Imperial Forester Armor: merges the whole of Imperial Forester Armor by Elderscrollsfan001 with Legion Forester Outposts.  It made most sense to merge them, since anyone who would want the custom forester armor in this mod is going to be running its source mod anyway.  I opted for the green emblem since I though it looked best.  But be sure to check out the alternative textures available on the original page, including some brand-new ones:


Each download also offers 4 plugins to choose from.  Each offers various racial distributions for use with Diverse Guards.  The default is Imperial male only.  The others include Imperial women, humans only, and all races.  Select the version you want to use and delete the others.   


Oblivion Version 1.2.0416

Installation Instructions

Uninstallation Instructions

Optional Files

The Legion Forester Armor version offers an alternative to the main version that merges Elderscrollsfan001's Legion Forester Armor mod with this mod.  I used the green emblem texture since I thought that looked best. 

Each version also offers multiple versions that change the demographics of the added NPCs to better match Diverse Guards.  The default is Imperial men only, but the alternatives offer versions with Imperial women, humans only, and all races.  Choose the plugin of your choice upon installation and delete the others. 

The compatibility versions offer the same things as the original, expcet they move the sites in the Colovian Highlands, West Weald, and Nibenay Plain to be compatible with mods such as Battlehorn Castle, Maskar's Overhaul, and Oblivion Uncut.  The new sites are:

- Nibenay Plain: west of Nagastani
- Colovian Highlands: north of Wind Cave
- West Weald: east of Nornalhorst


Should be compatible with most village mods.  Tested compatible with the following Unique Landscapes mods: River Ethe, Ancient Yews, Kvatch Devastation, Arrius Creek, Colovian Highlands, Ancient Redwoods, Fallenleaf Everglade, Chorrol Hinterlands. 

The original release is not compatible with: the Fighters Stronghold DLC, Oblivion Uncut, or Maskar's Oblivion Overhaul.  The optional compatibility versions of this mod move the conflicting sites to new locations to correct this.  The compatibility version site for the Colovian Highlands is compatible with DC Villages.   

This mod is incompatible with Legion Forester Armor mod, since the vanilla version makes changes to the same NPCs, and the optional version contained the entirety of that mod anyway.

Known Issues
