Sutvaka is a Windhelm styled player home located near shearpoint between Whiterun and Windhelm. It has a Player home, a tower with a view, barracks for your staff, a prison, secret chambers and an escape route through a tunnel system. In these tunnels lives a smuggler who buys stolen goods.

To get inside the estate you first have to get the key from either Sparrow at Shearpoint mountain or from a box in Fort Dunstad. With that key you gain acces to the gatehouse and you can drop the bridge and raise the portcullis.

This medium/large sized player home is equiped with all the things you might need. But for a lot is hidden away in the secret chambers below Sutvaka.To get to these hidden chambers, go to the basement armory where a button is hidden. This button will open the secret door leading to the chambers. However the basics for sharpening and improving can also be found in the barracks.

Here's a list of what you'll find:

- Guards patrolling the grounds.
- a couple of chickens
- a Chopping block.
- a tower with a view.
- Dog follower
- Stable with horses
- Gatehouse

Main House
- a living room with a steward/merchant with decent amount of gold.
- a maid/Assasin follower who is so poor that she cant even afford her own equipment. however, she is very stealthy.
- a dining room
- a kitchen
- a basement armory
- Master bedroom
- 2 guest bedrooms.
- And the secret door which leads to the secret chambers.

- The basics for smithing.
- Beds for your staff.
- a door which leads to the prison.
- lots of room for companion hoarders

- a portculis. On the basement side it can be opened with a lever. But on the tunnel side you have to use a pressure stone mounted on the wall near a candle (not perk sensitive, just walk up against it). Dont use the lever in the tunnels (ask Admiral Ackbar why).
- a room with a smuggler with a lot of gold. Door is also hidden and can be opened with a pressure stone on a wall.
- a secret exit.

Secret chambers
- Plenty of weaponracks and mannequins
- a fully equiped smithy.
- Alchemy stattion
- Enchantment station
- A vault
- Underground botanical garden
- armory near the smithy.

Everything is fully navmeshed so you can bring in your own followers.
The chests are safe to store your items.

There are no other mods required but i recommend: Amazing Follower Tweaks.

Q - I cant get into sutvaka.
A - You have to go to the gatehouse where you can find the lever to the bridge. At the end of the bridge look to the pillar on your right. There is a button mounted on the pillar that opens the portcullis.

Q - I cant get in the gatehouse.
A- You need the key to the estate which can be found on either Sparrow at Shearpoint or in a box in Fort Dunstad.
If you go for the Dunstad option then look at the screenshots for more info.

Q - I cant find Sutvaka
A - This one is actualy tricky and can be caused due to various reasons. A common reason is that you haven't let the mod manager properly load. Another reason can be a load order problem. So far i haven't found any mods that conflict with Sutvaka.

Q - I cant find the secret chamber.
A - Go to the basement armory of the main house (the room with the 2 mannequins and weaponracks). There is a Chaurus head mounted on a wall. Press on that to activate the hidden door.

Q - The vault is locked and i cant find the lever.
A - The pullbar is located up on a wall to your left. Use a torch because it is hidden in darkness.

Q - The weaponracks and display's arent working.
A - This is an Skyrim/Creationkit bug that i cant fix. Some people have this and some don't. To work around this you might want to use Jaxonz Positioner mod

Q - How do i use a manual download?
A - Very easy to do:
1. Download the rar file.
2. Unpack the rar file.
3. Go to the following section of your computer (may differ on your system)
Computer > Local Disk > Program files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > Skyrim > Data.
4. Copy all the files into the data folder. Windows may ask iff its okay to overwrite the Meshes
and Textures folders, press Yes. It wont overwrite the folder but places the files.

Q- Will there be any more mayor updates?
A - No. None. Only incidental bugfixes or tweaks.
