New Vominheim
by: venjhammet

Lore Story:
Thousands of years ago there was a powerful dark lord necromancer named Vuldur who ruled over Vominheim with force and intimidation. The citizens of the land lived in constant fear until one day a young Nord prince named Valdgar stood up and rebelled against them. Gifted by the way of the voice, the young prince together with his followers stormed the temple. A grand battle ensued between the dark-elven lord master and the young Nord prince. Eventually, the young prince managed to wound the dark lord. Facing imminent defeat, the dark lord fled to Desolate Veil and finally, the land was freed from the tyranny of the cultist group and their former master.

New Vominheim is a DLC-size mod much larger than Solstheim with over 30+ questlines and 50+ dungeons and locations waiting to be discovered and explored. Defeat powerful enemies and collect "unique enchantments" of armor sets and weapons as you journey into this unforgiving land. It also has houses you can own, followers to recruit, and even a large cavern like Blackreach to explore and some extremely challenging dungeons to test your character's build.

To start your adventure, you must head to Solstheim and go north of Damphall Mine and there you will encounter a group of cultists the Disciples of Vuldur looking for a certain individual (you) to assassinate. Read their note then your journey begins. Level requirements will be at least level 20. Available on both SE and AE. This Mod encourages you to explore the island and does not always point you where to go. There are no interesting NPC voice lines (too much work for a one-man job). This is already a massive undertaking for me.  It's mainly made for exploration and the existence of the Quest only adds a bit of flavor to the game.

Please don't forget to endorse my mods. Feel free to drop by at my Discord and please if you like my work, you can support me by dropping by at Kofi and Patreon.

How to go back to Skyrim or Solstheim:

After you finish the main Quest "The Land of Fire and Ice" a fast travel marker will be available near Whiteshore and Mer Varden.
-Near Whiteshore, fast travel to Skyrim
-Near Mer Varden, fast travel to Solstheim

You can also go back via boat.
-Whiteshore dock to Skyrim
-Mer Varden dock to Solstheim

If you have already finished the following quest:

you need to use the Console Command to complete the miscellaneous quest which will trigger once you are near those areas. Otherwise, those markers will remain there incomplete. Also, I added this because some players can miss those notes and end up complaining despite the quest guide I placed on the DOCS tab.

If you are not sure how to use these then please don’t update. Don’t forget to back up your saved files before updating.

a. Matriach of Vominheim - western side of the island near Fallvern   
b. Wrathclaw - eastern side of the island at Vorthil Dovul Bal   
c. Coldsting - west of Froskyre Ruin
d. Glade Keeper - east side, near Norvahkor Ruin
