• Zebsirious is obviously not compatible with the individual mods. But for those of you upgrading from them, you MIGHT be fine. Don't quote me on it though.

• A Sacrosanct patch is available for download under Optional Files. Keep in mind that the patch requires Imperious, in addition to Zebsirious and Sacrosanct.

• A Morningstar patch is available for download under Optional Files. This patch only requires Zebsirious.

• A patch for Requiem can be found here.

• Mods that edit human and elf races will affect Zebsirious' added humans and elves as well, not that that's necessarily a bad thing.

• Wintersun users can use the Wintersun MCM to disable race requirements to allow Zebsirious' races to worship.


I used several assets from other authors, so you must get their permission before using any of their assets.

But as long as I am credited and notified, you may, without my permission:
  • Upload translations of this mod
  • Make compatibility patches for this mod (as long as it isn't a waifu or body mod being made compatible)

If you'd like to use assets of this mod for any other reason, you must get my permission first. 
Permission to make a waifu using any of my races will be denied, so don't bother asking.

Will you make x race?
If it's from the lore, there's a pretty good chance I already plan on makign it, eventually.

Will you make a patch to give x custom race mod Imperious abilities?

Hard pass.

Extrasensory's novelty wore off and now the effect is kinda annoying.
Use the MCM to remove the ability. The effect can be restored at any time.

Extrasensory stopped working.
Use the MCM to remove and readd the ability. You may need to do this a couple times to make the ability take effect again.

Why'd you remove the Dwarven Staves/Snow elf temple and robes?
The staves forced the player into a playstyle utilizing them to get the fully benefits of the Dwemer race, and that kinda bothered me. As for the Snow Elf stuff, I just found it all redundant since there's an actual racial quest for the Falmer now.

What happened to the Giant Snakes?
I never really cared for the way I implemented them; having to kill them to "tame" them, and then accessing them through a summon spell just feels shoddy to me. They may return in a future mod, though, with better mechanics.
