== What is Northern Encounters ?

Mod adds 150 encounters, mostly to the north (Sea of Ghosts area). This mod is for those who love to explore and find new places. Mod also extends lore and adds storylines to follow.

Mod adds:
- 316 NPCs
- 42 ships/shipwrecks
- 44 houses/ruins
- 32 castles/ruins
- 6 caves
Also lots of unique items and tough new enemies.

Mod has many storylines, following them will lead you to adventures all across the Skyrim. Check video for more information.

It can take hundreds of hours to find all encounters and solve all storylines. This mod isn't easy, it will not display objectives and show on map or compass where to go. Many encounters are linked to each other, so finding one may take you across the Skyrim to look for the other.

Mod is lore friendly and it also extends the lore. For example faith of the Dwemer. It also ties vanilla NPCs to storylines, making some of the "not so important or interesting" NPCs main characters for certain happenings.

=== Tips

Best place to start is the Nightgate Inn.

Some encounters are "out of map", so you may want to include Skyrim.ini --> [General] section --> bBorderRegionsEnabled=0

=== Compatibility

Because this mod adds such a huge amount of encounters to the most northern parts (especially to the Sea of Ghosts area) all other mods that add content to same area may conflict. There practically isn't free space left.

After installing/uninstalling this mod select SAVE (not quick save) to make a new save and then LOAD (not quick load) the save you just made. This way all unused refs are removed from the current saved game.
