About this mod

A long forgotten shield, and for good reason....

Permissions and credits
Hello my name is Alkarath,

First off thank you very much for visiting my mod page.
This is my very first mod, it took me a total of 2 months to make starting without any knowledge about 3d modeling, texturring and modding in general.
However thru watching hours of tutorials aswell as incredible help from the nexus community i managed to make a mod i am somewhat proud of.
Both the model and textures are hand made completely from scratch.

We've reached nearly 2000+ unique downloads and 100+ endorsements, thank you so much. Really i cant thank you guys enough!
If you downloaded my mod, please dont hesitate to leave any feedback both postive and or negative as i am eager to improve my skills.
If you want to sumbit screenshots im glad to take a look at them, since i am terrible at making them.

Anyways without to much further ado, i present to you the Shield of the Forgotten Jarl.

A long lost shield worn only by those worthy of the long forgotten throne, the shield past on from one to another and now you may lay your hands on this cursed shield, if you dare.......
