What is The Volgon Isles?

The Volgon Isles is a WIP mod, that includes new lands to explore, Dungeons and caves to discovery and new people to meet. The islands include many cities, towns, settlements, forts, camps, caves, and shipwrecks. Pretty much everything Skyrim had, but with more!
 
How do i get there!
There are Two ways to get to Volgon.
The first way is to travel to the solitude docks, go on the new boat and click the ship Wheel



The Second way of getting there in case the first way crashes is this:
To Travel to volgon type in the console     cow volgon 0 0    To travel back to skyrim either hit the fast travel marker, which is located on the east side of the map or go to the console and type in   cow tamriel 0 0


Update Alpha 1.5! 
Large updates to the world. Added more land to explore in the Nalogna Kingdom. Made world feel more alive and a real place. Map is 95% Navemeshed so followers and NPCs should mostly work. added more detail to exteriors of dungeons and added some more to the Astrag City.
 Work on 1.6 has started on December 26 
One year anniversary!!!

What the heck! how long did this take!!
Mods that include new lands, cities, NPCs and Quests take FOREVER to do, i have spent over a year so far on this, and i am not giving up anytime soon.
Updates will be a couple of weeks to a month apart. Each update will be sizable updates that will make it even better!  


What is currently in the mod and what is on the "To Do List"?

100% of LOD is working!!!!
outsides of dungeons are mainly done.

The to do list

internals of pretty much all buildings and dungeons.
 More Navmesh
quests
and other 'under the hood' stuff.
connecting the world together.



Where the heck are these isles located? IS it even Lore friendly!!!!!Whats the story!

The Volgon Isles lay far to west of Hammer fell and Sumerset Isles, and to the south of Yokuda, the home of the Redguards which was destoryed many years ago.
This is set in Current day, so Boat travel between the isles and Skyrim is possible.

Lore
Many different races have come to call these majestic islands their home. The ancient Nords were the first to settle this land after traveling from northern Tamriel  in the first era. Many of the nords now found on the islands to day can traced their family line to the first settlers.
Redguards also migrated to the southern island after their home "Yokuda" was destroyed. Due to its close proximity to High Rock Orcs also made one of the smaller islands there home to mine Minerals and raid near by settlements. During the Great War between the  Aldemeri dominion and the Mede Empire, many Elves arrived at The Volgon Isles to escape the deadly war between the two factions. The main export of the isles is precious metals and minerals hidden deep in the jagged terrain. The Climate changes dramatically and many have compared it to a mix between High Rock and Skyrim. 
The is much turmoil in the islands causing food shortages and has greatly reduced exports. Many different factions have been fighting for control since before the 4th era.
