This is a Nexus Exclusive. This mod adds a set of mage armor for high level characters with an interest in magic.
The only place to get these items is through the crafting forge.
THIS IS A NEXUS EXCLUSIVE! NO STEAM SUPPORT WILL BE OFFERED AT THIS TIME! IF I FIND THAT THIS HAS BEEN UPLOADED TO STEAM WITHOUT MY PERMISSION I WILL NOT BE LENIENT TOWARDS THE UPLOADER(S). YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
This mod adds armor for high level characters. The armor can be worn by both males and females. The armor comes in Heavy, Light, and Non Armor varieties to match personal play styles. There is a cuirass, two sets of gloves, two sets of boots, six hood varieties, and four possible decorational items. The main pieces come in all respective armor types and the decorational pieces are all three armor types. The decorational pieces are bone ordaments: a bone tail attachment, a folded wings attachment, a large set of open wings attachment, and a small set of open wings attachment. The bone tail can be used with any set of wings but the wings can not be used together. None of the bone ordaments have major stats but you can wear them and not have to worry about breaking a particular play style or perk advantage. Please note that the hood are not intended for Beast races but some of them can be worn by Beast races without a major change in appearance. All hood pieces have the same stat values relative to their armor type. This is intended so that you can wear which ever hood you want that pleases your aesthetic tastes without having to make a sacrifice in the items' stat value.
All pieces of the equipement can be crafted at any forge and all items can be upgraded. The non armor pieces do not require any perks to create, but come with no armor protection - intended for mages. The Light Armor version requires the perk Wind Walker to craft their respective set. The Heavy Armor varient requires the Dragon Armor smithing perk. Each piece has stats relative to its play style and an appropriate set of crafting materials.
If you do not like the values of the stats then five minutes in the CK can make them whatever your want. If you feel that the equipment is too overpowered then just increase your difficulty setting.
We are now available in Spanish!
You can either download this mod with the Nexus mod manager or download the files and extract into the Skyrim data folder. Be sure to check the tick box in your data files section on the Skyrim launcher.
Either use Nexus Mod Manager to remove the files or manually remove them from you Skyrim/Data folder.
I plan to upgrade and improve this mod over time as I fix bugs, think of new ideas, become more adapted to the CK, and so on. Be sure to check back in once and awhile for updates. Be sure to completely uninstall any previous versions of this mod before upgrading though.
I will not take responsibility for corrupted save games or lost save games. Get into the habit of backing up your saves to protect your game data. Ignore at your own risk!
This mod uses vanilla textures and models in some places. If you are using retextures or model replacers this could cause unintended and unanticipated effects to your character while using this mod. If you notice any other incompatibility then please let me know about it.
Known Issues or Bugs
There is a small chance that wearing the Dragon Bone Gauntlets will cause your hands to disappear. This is not a fault on my part as this appears to happen randomly and may or may not be caused by recent CK changes. If a fix is found a future version of the mod will contain it.

You MUST contact me before you do anything with this mod in any form for any reason. This includes language translations. I will NOT be providing Steam Workshop support at this time. I do not feel comfortable with their legal policies towards modding so I will not use it. I will not support or endorse its use at this time. If I want it to be on Steam, I will do so myself. If you see this on Steam, LET ME KNOW! I will not support any version of this mod found on Steam. I will not accept any childish excuse about "sharing" with the community. If you refuse to respect my wishes, I can not, in good faith, respect yours.
