About this mod

Lets your shifty characters remain shifty whilst retaining your "Holiness" when using Haptly's mod Epic Restoration

Permissions and credits

Welcome to The Gray Zone

Ever felt that you were at heart a good person, who definitely do more good than bad but sometimes slip from the path of purity and wisdom and end up in the gray zone? Ever roleplayed as an undercover spy in The Thieves Guild? Want to be able to execute justice on Grelod the Kind who is secretly a Hagraven who eats orphans? Sure you do! Only problem is the Gods don't look kindly on such deeds. Until now, that is. With this mod you'll be able to do this and still be considerd "holy" with Haptly's mod "Epic Restoration".

This mod changes the EpicRestorationHolinessScript that determine if your character is able to use the divine spells from Haptly's Epic Restoration. I have changed it so that you are still considered "Holy" even if you join the Thieves Guild or kill Grelod the Kind. This also means that you get to keep the divine gifts you get when you rennounce deadra.

I made this mod for my own gaming experience, because I often storytell stuff that happens in the game to suit my current character. Not beeng able to rid the world of someone who's obviously secretly a hagraven was a nusiance.

Have finally fixed the issue where the gods kept telling a vampire or werewolf player they pity you. See versions 1.03b and 1.03c for this.

  • Manual: Remove "Grayzone.esp" from your Data Folder, the "EpicRestorationRenounceScript.pex" and the "EpicRestorationHolinessScript.pex" from your Scripts Folder (found in Data/Scripts). Also remove "EpicRestorationRenounceScript.psc" and "EpicRestorationHolinessScript.psc" from your Source Folder (found in Data/Scripts/Source).

Known issues and bugs
  • When using versions 1.03b and 1.03c you either have to start a new game or cure yourself from vampirism/lycantropy and then reinfect yourself for you to be able to cast holy spells. The good news is that the mod works with Arthmoor's Alternate Start, so you don't have to go through the tedious task of getting infected on a new game.
