The pictures, with the exception of the user images, do not represent their actual skin colour.
They were taken with my own black & white ENB using a sepia palette.

Because the race is derived from the Nord, it shares the same presets. However, I enabled all
available face morphs for this race, so there should be enough customization possibilities.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, updated to the latest version (currently 1.8).

A custom body is included in the mod, as such a body replacer will not be required to be able to use
this race.

Some of the testers reported freezes and crashes in the character creation menu, the optional lite textures
fixed it for them. If you have similar issues, please try the lite textures first.
