The stars of Tamriel are divided into thirteen constellations. Three of them are the major constellations, known as the guardians. These are the Warrior, the Mage and the Thief. Each of the guardians protects its three charges from the thirteenth constellation, the Serpent.
When the sun rises near one of the constellations, it is that constellation's season. Each constellation has a season of approximately one month. The Serpent has no season, for it moves about in the heavens, usually threatening one of the other constellations.
Which constellation were you born under?

* Character Creation Overhaul
Nothing else, but I'm sure it will conflict with another standing stones mod. The winner is the last loaded.
Yes, yes, I could say that this is a slight modifications if you compare with vanilla. But this is a chocolate version, even better than vanilla, if you don't use any better standing stones module...
Uh, I don't have much to say, but don't forget to click the image below!
