Legacy of the Dragonborn V5

Long have the jaws of Oblivion been bound closed, yet there are those who would seek to pry open the maw of destruction once more to meet their nefarious ends. The long shattered heart of an empire has come to the lands of Skyrim’s strife, and waits for one who is bound to it to once again make it whole.

Legacy of the Dragonborn is one of the most acclaimed expansion sized mods for Skyrim which offers without equal; the most versatile, most expansive and most extensive display space for artifacts the Elder Scrolls series has ever seen! On top of offering a Museum for display of nearly 3500 potential unique items and sets (including supported mods), this mod offers an entirely new guild faction you start from the ground up, “The Explorer’s Society”. It offers dozens of new quest, a handful of major quest arcs and numerous useful and unique mechanics all centered around your home at the Dragonborn Gallery in Solitude.
Legacy is designed as a foundational mod to build your load order and entire playthrough around. It is recommended that you START your game with this mod  and all chosen supported mods and patches already installed and ready to go. Legacy will change the way you look at Skyrim, change the way you play the  game and give you cause and reason for doing everything you do as the Dragonborn. The museum not only offers display space for your loot, but also tracks various accomplishments with detailed displays, shows what you have achieved and where you have been. 

As the story of the mod is designed around the canonical aspect of the player being the Dragonborn, it will potentially break some immersion to otherwise play as a non-Dragonborn. The main quest of Legacy centers around it and depends upon certain vanilla quests establishing you as such.
