ABOUT HAAFSTAD (SKYRIM)_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Since the Miracle of Peace (3E 417), the Breton Kings unified High Rock after 150 years of struggle. One of the dangers were the Nords who occupied / reclaimed parts of east High Rock during the War of Bend'r-Mahk (3E 397). These Nords were driven away some
years later.
But in the far north, on an island, near the border of Skyrim, a group of Nords repelled their attacks and turned their settlement into a small, profitable trading centre. These Nords call their village Haafstad and they are linked with Solitude, although they stayed neutral during the civil war in Skyrim.

As time passed, they made peace with the Bretons who in their turn, welcomed the trading Nords. Ships come from Lordship Pinemarch and even from the Breton island Kirkmore. In Haafstad, Breton and Nordic ships go on and off. And in these days (4E 201) Haafstad is led by a pirate who calls himself Captain One Eye ("...because I have one eye") and his hardened Nords. There lives a smith, an innkeeper, two mages, warriors, Old man Snorri (a potential follower) and more.

It's a tough life. Captain One Eye has indeed one problem, he wants somebody to clear out an abandoned ship. It’s danger could be a possible threat to Haafstad and it's trade.



Haafstad, Skyrim. From there, you can take a ship to Kirkmore, High Rock.



Your follower in Haafstad: Old man Snorri. A senile old magician. He can fight well, but he started to deteriorate, and it shows.

ABOUT THE LORDSHIP PINEMARCH (HIGH ROCK)_______________________________________________________________________________________

Onshore, the Lordship Pinemarch, just across the border in High Rock, is part of the Kingdom Jehanna. This Lordship contains the town Pine Vale, the settlement Haelth, a few farms, a castle and a strip of the coast.

The High Rock border is guarded by Breton soldiers, accompanied by traders. A little further there is an inn, the Drunken Horse. It's innkeeper has a secret. He thought he heard just rats in his cellar. Turned out to be scamps and other creatures from Oblivion. It's up to you to help him.
Ps.: you have to click a few times on Stendar to let him talk with you. He is too busy pouring beer. Guess that's more important to him than talking with you....

The main town of this Lordship is Pine Vale. This village is surrounded by pinetrees and mountains. It's cold and foggy. You can have a drink at a local pub where you can receive a quest and there is a small library where you can buy books. There is also a chapel of Kynareth. The most interesting this small village has is a simple player's home. It's a small house surrounded with pines. Inside there is on the second floor an alchemy table and next to it a barrel you can store your ingredients, since the barrel won't respawn. Also the chest near your bed is safe to store your goods. So if you are a Breton, and you ever wanted to have a home in High Rock, this is the mod!
You have to find the key though.

Even more west, you can visit the settlement Haelth and the castle Pinemarch, tucked in the mountains. Castle Pinemarch is the seat of the Lord of Pinemarch, overlooking his territory. Lordship Pinemarch seems safe, but this is not the case. A Steeldragon passed the Skyrim border and settled in High Rock, not far away from this Lordship. With this dragon, also one of the surviving members of the blades took shelter in Pine Vale to avoid the Thalmor persecutions. Where is he? Can you resque him?


ABOUT KIRKMORE (HIGH ROCK)_____________________________________________________________________________________________________




Coast of Kirkmore, High Rock

From the Nordic town Haafstad, you can take a ship, heading for the island Kirkmore. Kirkmore is about as big as 1 hold of Skyrim. It contains the main town Kirkmore and two smaller towns; Fyth Craig and Moch, both located north. It's mainly a green island, with lots of trees; aspens, pines you won't see in Skyrim, and also bigger trees, white and green bushes and lots of yellow/white harvestable flowers (mountainflowers, ghost bane and the 'yellow lad'). The northern part of the island, which is less urbanized, has a more red vegetation with pines. The creatures living there are rabbits, foxes, wild horses and wild dogs. But also creatures you won't see in Skyrim; rats, treants, sand crabs, paralyzing Iliac spiders, phantoms and nightweepers.

This island was colonised by mainly Northpointers from High Rock, in times the continent was occupied by the Direnni elves. It was much later that merchants from the Kingdom of Camlorn gave this island a commercial impulse and improved the trade. With the Bretons came horses and dogs. Some of them escaped their domestic lives and turned wild.
Kirkmore is ruled by a Lord and although not under the direct rule, it's Lord traditionally accepts the King of Northpoint as their King. Because of the traders from the continent, Kirkmore keeps healthy ties with the kingdom of Camlorn.

The climate of Kirkmore is maritime temperate and is strongly regulated by the effects caused by the Eltheric Ocean. It's summers are pleasant and not too warm and it's winters are mild. This island, especially it's southern part, is generally warmer than the southern holds of Skyrim.

The Red Woods in northern Kirkmore.

When you take the ship to Kirkmore, you'll be on an adventure. You'll hear and find information about the island and it's inhabitans along the way , but you'll soon discover that the centre of this island is a large tree. It is called The Guardian Tree, which might be compared with the Wyrd Trees on the continent in High Rock. It's power is still not fully understood by the people and therefore the tree is seen as a both a threat and a protector of nature and the island itself.
There are also other things and threats waiting to be discovered. In Fyth Craig lives an ' elder' , an important person of a certain area in Kirkmore, who's eager to help you when you are on a quest, even when you are accompanied by old man Snorri from Haafstad.

Map the island Kirkmore.

When the player takes the ship to Kirkmore, he/she receives a quest. Along the way you can choose to have a follower named Fergus in Fyth Craig to join you. You'll enter a dark mine and fight skeleton guardians, dangerous Iliac spiders and strong phantoms (30+ level), which are quite hard to detect.

AS-LAL EXTENSION FOR HAAFSTAD, PINE VALE & KIRKMORE______________________________________________________________________________

Creaturelist:

- Iliac Bay Spider: the paralyzing TES II spider is back. Can be found in small groups everywhere, also in Kirkmore. These creatures might not have a lot of health, but once you are paralized, you have a big problem as they will eat you alive.
- Sand Crab: weak creatures like their counterparts in Skyrim. Can be found on the sandy beaches of Kirkmore.

- Skeleton Guardian: stronger skeleton with armor, tough enemy for low level players. Can be found everywhere.
- Nightweeper: peaceful spirits, guarding certain trees in Kirkmore. They only appear at night.
- Phantom: a powerful, transparant ghost (not to be compared with the ghosts in Skyrim) and even a tough enemy for high level players. Only to be found in Kirkmore.

- Black Dragon: Can be found east of Haafstad.
- Seagulls can be found in Kirkmore.
- Ducks can be found in Kirkmore.
- Different kinds of wild dogs, elks and a walrus (an Ontocetus from the Pleistocene) in Kirkmore.

HOW TO UNLOCK THE BORDERS:____________________________________________________________________________________________________

You have to edit the file Skyrim.ini. There are two locations where you can find this file. You should not have the one in your Skyrim data folder, where you put the mods for example, but the one in your General folder (I think it is: User/My Documents/My Games/Skyrim).
If you found the Skyrim.ini file, type: bBorderRegionsEnabled=0 in the section [General]. That should work.


COMPATIBLE WITH:__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

- Unique Border Gates
- Seapoint settlement
- Beyond Reach

Team Beyond Skyrim creates High Rock at this moment, a team which I support fully, work with- and am part of. This part of High Rock I created is not directly linked with- and part of Beyond Skyrim's Hammerfell, nor have I used their assets.

There could be some grammar mistakes; I am sorry. I am Dutch, not English.

May Talos guide you and good luck;
