The Eighth Legion, by orders of His Imperial Majesty, is deploying all available reinforcements to Skyrim in the face of the intensified Stormcloak Insurrection. As you are aware, Imperial military resources are currently somewhat lowered. Available forces are converging at Camp Argentum, strategically placed in the Whiterun Tundra. Your orders are to take command of the forces gathered there and organize defensive and offensive operations in cooperation with the local authorities. Focus will be on fighting the Stormcloak Insurrection. You will be reporting to General Tullius, Solitude Command, Imperial Legion Military Governor in Skyrim.

Camp Argentum began as a personal project because I wanted to have a roleplaying environment for my Imperial Legion character. As such, the mod is aimed at people who just want to roleplay a Legion officer or soldier in the Stormcloak War. The mod goes perfectly together with Warzones. In fact, the camp is placed right next to the Redoran Plains Warzone and the legionaries in the camp will actually go out to take part in the fight if it gets too close.

The Camp is inhabited by thirteen NPC's. All of them have suitable Legion roles. There are mostly regular soldiers (1-handed), but also officers (2-handed), and I've included a Battlemage (magic) and an archer (ranged). All the soldiers in the Camp have personal files which are readable in the files Cabinet in the Centurion's Tent, which is an enterable interior. All the NPC's are recruitable as followers. The NPC's are essential, so they won't die. Not recommended to go close if you're a Stormcloak traitor!

The NPC's have AI packages and live naturally in their camp waiting for the next battle. At Five o'clock each morning, there is a roll call situation where all the soldiers line up and stand at attention for inspection in the center of the camp.

The Camp is heavily inspired by historical Roman military camps and many of the details found in the mod are directly referencing real world history although keeping it all fantasy/Elder Scrolls and lore-friendly. A minimum of new modder's resources have been used because I wanted to keep it all suitably vanilla and rustic looking. Although this, I managed to pop a few things in there; those resources used are listed below in the Notes section.
