This is my a castle fit for a Dragon Lord!

I am constantly adding new content! Check out the change log :)

** Recommend use of the "Unlimited Bookshelves" for best experience **

Current Features:
- Massive Main Hall with 5 merchants and Alchemy / forge / cooking / enchantment tables
- Massive Library with a live Dragon + spell merchant
- Massive Pool Room with Live Dragon and one of the most intricate wall structures ever created
- Massive Private quarters with lots of places for decorations
- Treasure room with many mannequins and weapon cases
- And it keeps going!

**All storage containers are static meaning I will not remove anything and can be used now to store items.**

I will be doing a lot of decorating and adding NPC's over the next week.

To Install:

Use Nexus MOD manager *or* :

Simply unzip file into your Skyrim\Data Directory, launch game, select Data files and ensure Dragon Lord Castle is selected. You only need to download the latest version. I keep the old one's posted in the archive in case anyone needs to back-level.

To access:

House is now located due south of Whiterun on the hill and shows as a
marker on your map! Read release notes for details
Additionally you can use 'coc massive2' to directly access the mod.
If you want your spouse to move to the castle - try using this:
