About this mod

Allows Marcel Amelion to rebuild his life after the events of the Fighters Guild quest line. Also gives him new neighbours in the form of two Khajiit brothers and a Nord mother and daughter.

WATER'S EDGE REBORN – a mod by zymurgy65
As I'm sure you know, the penultimate Fighters Guild quest results in the slaughter of everyone in Water's Edge. Only Marcel Amelion is left, standing outside in all weathers and mourning his lost daughter. Water's Edge Reborn rebuilds the hamlet and adds a little happiness to Marcel's life.

Please note, this mod should only be activated AFTER you've completed the Fighters Guild quest line and the corpses have disappeared from Water's Edge, since it includes Biene Amelion's gravestone. Some quest stages are triggered by conversations with NPCs, others by the quest script. A big thank you to mixxa77 for the advice on scripting time delays between stages.

New NPCs
Speak to Marcel after completing the Fighters Guild quest line and he'll tell you that Count Marius Caro has put out a call for new settlers. The first of these will appear a week later; Erika, a Nord healer, and her daughter Elsa. They left Skyrim because, like many Nords, they're sick of snow and fancy the warmer climes of Blackwood. They're soon followed by J'kar and Ma'jhad, Khajiit brothers from Anequina in Elsweyr. They're equally tired of sand and want to live somewhere with decent rainfall to raise their crops and sheep. They have six of the latter, plus Shavari the dog.

New Dialogue
Marcel and his new neighbours all have unique dialogue. This ranges from Marcel's satisfaction that the Blackwood Company has been decommissioned to Erika's later admission that the two of them have grown... close. How close? You'll have to wait and see!

New Schedules
All NPCs now perform scheduled tasks throughout the week. J'kar takes his flock out to graze every morning. Marcel and Ma'jhad tend their crops on weekdays, while Erika practices her alchemy. Elsa harvests clouded funnel caps near Rockmilk Cave on Tirdas and runs errands to Border Watch on Turdas. On other mornings she sweeps the floor. Marcel will visit Biene's grave every afternoon.

On Loredas Erika reads her alchemy skill book while Elsa explores the wilderness south of Border Watch. After lunch J'kar and Ma'jhad leave Shavari to guard the house while they visit the Border Watch Inn for a few drinks before dinner. Marcel will begin having lunch with Erika and Elsa on Sundas, after which Erika will accompany him to Biene's grave.

Shivering Isles, for Elsa's sweeping animation.
OBSE – Elys – Universal Silent Voice. This will ensure the subtitles stay on screen long enough to be read.
