New in Version 6.1 -More non-Dragonborn story. 

Version 6.x - A revamp of the way the mod is built. The non-Dragonborn story is now its own quest and should be compatible with every start.

Mod Description
I enjoy Live Another Life and Skyrim Unbound, but after talking to the statue and then activating the bed or pressing "begin", it always feels a little jarring to just suddenly be standing somewhere with no real context.

That's where this mod comes in. It will add a very simple story to each of the scenarios and, for the LAL stories, find a way to point you in the direction of Helgen (where you otherwise have no contextual reason to visit except for LAL's generic "you heard rumors about Helgen"). 

The other thing that I felt was needed was a storyline that gave the player a reason to start the main quest, so now all beginnings will start a short quest that will lead you to Bleak Falls.

New in version 5.xx - An epic* NON-Dragonborn storyline! Once you get to the cabin where your parents are supposed to be, you will have the choice between continuing the Vanilla storyline or beginning a new quest that assumes you wouldn't know a Dragon shout from a peal of thunder.

The scenarios that have something at this point:
Altered Beginning (and any other version of the Vanilla start)
- All versions of the Vanilla start. (Note: the EtC quest giver is down the road where the paths from Helgen's front gate and the path to the cave meet. This is to ensure compatibility with mods that start you in Helgen versus those that have you go through the cave.

LIve Another LIfe

- "I want to escape this cell"

- "I've Been Shipwrecked!" -To start the quest on this option, escape the boat. There is another survivor on one of the ice flows on the far side of the nearest iceberg. Find him and talk to him.

- "I am a warlock's thrall" - warning: this one might be immersion breaking for some. Following fanuilh1's fantastic idea, this one is a "pulled from the real world" scenario. Also, it contains bad language.

Skyrim Unbound

- The Burned Cabin under the "Wilderness" tab.
If you want the shortcut to the non-Dragonborn storyline, use this beginning.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Anyway, that's it. Just a little extra story to go along with one of the options in LAL and SU.

This doesn't require Live Another Life or Skyrim Unbound anything else. It does not use anything from LAL or Skyrim Unbound. If you download it without either, all the npc's will be there. This just adds a pinch of flavor to one of the choices.

If you do not see the "escape from this cell" option, you probably need to update your LaL.
