HEARTHFIRE REQUIRED

You can now adopt Aventus Aretino. Speak to him in the Aretino Residence after completing the quest Innocence Lost. 

Recommendation for people who have mods that return Aventus back to the Orphanage: Turn on this mod AFTER Aventus has returned. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Once Aventus is adopted the game treats him just like any other adopted kid. To unadopt him you can't just disable this mod; you'll need to do stuff that allows you to unadopt any kid, such as disabling Hearthfire entirely and then re-enabling it again.

--- MOD COMPATIBILITY STUFF ---

Obviously, all the USKP / USLEEP type of huge overhaul mods should be loaded above (i.e. before) all your other mods.

For Hearthfire Multiple Adoption: Should go above/before this mod.

For Dragon's Keep: Should go above/before this mod.

If you are NOT using RS Children or The Kids Are Alright: No need to download any patches for my mod.

If you are using RS Children only - not using USKP or USLEEP: Download the patch for my mod provided under the heading "AdoptAventusPatch - RSChildren only".

Loading order should be (top to bottom):
  • RSChildren - Complete.esp
  • adoptAventusAretino.esp (Adopt Aventus Aretino main file)
  • AdoptAventusPatch - RSChildren.esp (the patch)

If you are using RS Children and Unofficial Skyrim Patch (USKP): Download the patch for my mod provided under the heading "AdoptAventusPatch - RSChildren USKP".

Loading order should be (top to bottom):
  • Unofficial Skyrim Patch
  • RSChildren - Complete.esp
  • RSChildren_PatchUSKP.esp
  • adoptAventusAretino.esp (Adopt Aventus Aretino main file)
  • AdoptAventusPatch - RSChildren_PatchUSKP.esp (the patch)

If you are using RS Children (v 1.2) and Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch (USLEEP): Download the patch for my mod provided under the heading "AdoptAventusPatch - RSChildren USLEEP".

Loading order should be (top to bottom):
  • Unofficial Skyrim Legendary Edition Patch
  • RSChildren.esp
  • RSChildren Patch - USLEEP.esp
  • adoptAventusAretino.esp (Adopt Aventus Aretino main file)
  • adoptAventusPatch-RSChildrenUSLEEP.esp (the patch)

If you are using The Kids Are Alright: Download the patch for my mod provided under the heading "AdoptAventusPatch - TKAA".

For the load order, put the patch (adoptAventusPatch-TKAA.esp) below both Adopt Aventus Aretino (adoptAventusAretino.esp) and The Kids Are Alright (TKAA.esp). It doesn't matter whether Adopt Aventus Aretino or The Kids Are Alright goes first, as long as the patch is after both.


--- Update 1.7 ---

Made this mod more compatible with other mods, such as the boarding school mod Dragon's Keep.


--- Update 1.6 ---

Aventus now always has his voice, during Innocence Lost quest and throughout adoption.


--- Update 1.5 ---

Re-uploaded with very minor changes - now requires Update.esm as master file (because I realized it probably should).


--- Update 1.4 ---

Aventus will retain his aspiration to become an assassin :) 
Also, Aventus should now stop forgetting that he once lived in Windhelm, if player's house is Hjerim (for this part to work load this mod after Hearthfire Multiple Adoptions if you use it).


--- Update 1.3 ---

Dialogue to propose adoption should appear more readily now. 


--- Update 1.2 ---

Now somewhat compatible with "Aventus Aretino Goes Home": If you use the mod "Aventus Aretino Goes Home", Aventus must have already gone back to the Orphanage before "Adopt Aventus Aretino" is installed. "Adopt Aventus Aretino" needs to be loaded after "Aventus Aretino Goes Home" in the mod loading order. Even so, adopting Aventus still sometimes works sometimes doesn't; try a few times entering and exiting Riften.


--- Update 1.1 ---

Now compatible with the Unofficial Skyrim Patch which returns Aventus Aretino to the orphanage after Innocence Lost. Allows for adopting Aventus Aretino even if he has gone back to the Orphanage; with no need to talk to Constance Michel beforehand. 

Fixed bug where Aventus will stop saying anything if you cannot adopt any more children.
