This is a re-imagining of Skyrim's Ebony Armor.

Allows you to Craft Divine Aegis and Sword of the Divine Aegis at the forge. Daedric Smithing Perk is Required.

Long Description:

After taking a small break after finishing my first mod "Mystic Elven Armor", I started looking at the other vanilla armors in skyrim trying to find something that was missing. It didn't take very long to figure out what I needed to make next.

My first character in Skyrim was a heavy armor, sword and board user. I specialized in healing magic, while wading into melee combat.

Essentially I had made a paladin.

Despite rather liking the vanilla dragonbone armor, I was a little dissapointed with the fact that there didn't seem to be any "Light" inspired armors in Skyrim. Everything was either Dark, Grungy, Evil or all of the above, but there didn't really seem to be any weapons or armor that a "good guy" would really wear. As one of the NPC's so aptly put it "Everyone in Skyrim is obsessed with death" and the armors seemed to follow that theme.

This armor is my attempt to give Paladin type characters like mine something more "Divine" to wear.

Critical Contributor(s):

Shodan44 provided many of the meshes that you will be enjoying in this reskin, he was absolutely essential in fixing many of the failings in the original vanilla mesh.

Shodan's meshes fixed the following:

- Much larger Ebony Shield.

An increased shield size, because Paladins don't use wimpy sized shields.

- Improved Female Armor Mesh

This armor has an enhanced female armor mesh, this mesh fixes many glaring bugs while also giving the female mesh a much less bulky form.

- Improved Male Armor Mesh

The Male Meshes included within this pack fix many glaring problems, including a fix to the ebony helmet and neck.

Because of Shodan this armor came out 100x better than it would have using the initial meshes.
