About this mod

This mod will make the combat of Enderal tougher, faster and more strategic. I intend to make Enderal feel different from Skyrim with increased enemy variety, new mechanics, new spells/potions and many other things.

Faster combat because of increased damage multipliers
Fixed many Problems with insane damage multipliers on enemies
All actions cost stamina. 70% or more stamina = damage bonus, 30% or less = damage reduction
Blocking with shields or weapons is much more efficient, heavy shield bash is now available
Heavy Armor is much better but will slow the wearer and will increase mana cost for spells
Followers like Calia/Jespar are no longer invincible and will fall down if they would die

AI reacts better, attacks/block more frequently
Archers now use Arrows and will switch to melee weapons if needed
Certain creatures (like Bears and Trolls) will knockback the player with some attacks if the player isnt blocking
Undeads have drastically increased armor and health. Added new silver weapons, silver arrows
Ghosts have drastically increased resistances. Bypass it with silver weapons or with a new consumable called "Ghost Curse"
More diversity between creatures. Some Examples:

Mud Golems (Troll Template) don´t regenerate Health but have increased resistances
Steppe Crusher (Deer Template) are more aggressive and have a new attack pattern
Boneshredder (Vatyr Template) are slower and have increased armor, magic/poison resistances
Crystal Elementals (Frost Elemental Template) have new resistances, no longer deal frost damage in an AoE around them, removed frost FX
Spiders have different poisons (slow, paralyze or increased damage poisons) and big spiders will knock the player back
Giants, Bears, Spiders, Trolls, Mud Golems have new attack patterns
Starling Guardians will use their crossbow

35 new Potions/Poisons and rebalanced the others (in most cases they are stronger now)
22 completely new Spells (many of them didnt even exist in Skyrim)
Manacost is drastically increased, Manacost reduction perks are now mandatory to properly cast spells
Completely rebalanced elemental spells. Some spells were just much better than others of the same rank.
Psionic is better and with the new spells added its a viable skill

Alchemy is much more useful
Stealth/Pickpocketing/Lockpicking rebalanced and overall made harder
Loot is much more diverse. Animals/Creatures will drop appropriate items
Many, many other changes. More informations are below and in the changelog

- This mod is not fully save game compatible (many modifications work but for example enemies that you already spawned won´t have some of the changes included in the mod)

- Starting a new game is highly recommended
- I will not offer optional mods that remove individual functions and i will not offer modules or a MCM menu but I will gladly accept feedback.
- This mod should not cause crashes, since no scripts are applied and everything is properly tested.



- Damage mult: [the original values are in the "()"]
                                     Damage on Player     Damage by Player
 NOVICE:    x1.90 (0.60)              x1.20 (1.80)
 EASY:x2.10 (0.80)              x1.20 (1.55)
 ADEPT:                              x2.25 (0.95)              x1.20 (1.15)
 EXPERT [recommended]:       x2.40 (1.30)              x1.20 (1.05)
 MASTER:                                  x2.55 (1.55)              x1.20 (0.90)
 IRON PATH:             x2.70 (3.00)              x1.20 (0.65)

These numbers don´t necessarily mean that the player does half the damage a bandit would do. The player gets some advantages that enemies don´t receive and bandits in the beginning have about 50% less health than the player. Many enemies have decreased damage multipliers.
A bandit in the beginning of the game is about as strong as the player.
