Ever thought Skyrim's opening scenes were boring and felt like they were missing something? Well, today's your lucky day, because this mod rejuvenates and overhauls 'Unbound' by restoring LOTS of cut, unused dialogue, including a more invigorating carriage scene, escaping the Keep with Ulfric and Elenwen confronting General Tullius.
Improvements to Vanilla version:

*The Thalmor have more of a presence, with Elenwen confronting Tullius.
*The Captain doesn't say 'sentries, what do you see' when the dragon is literally in front of her. This and the other 'dragon spotting' dialogue plays earlier, so it's more realistic.
*Extends and restores the scene with Haming and Torolf - it's now a more emotional affair instead of a rushed side plot, with more dialogue from Hadvar, Haming, Torolf and Gunnar.
*The ability to escape with Ulfric, FULLY VOICED! Ulfric and Ralof will talk to each other and to you.
*More dialogue for the dragon attack, citizens now scream and panic realistically
*Elenwen & Tullius argument fixed - more dialogue. Ralof now comments on Elenwen & Tullius' argument
*Ulfric and Ralof have a conversation in the tower by the Helgen Homestead. Ulfric is happy to see Ralof alive and Ralof explains you're a prisoner the Empire tried to kill.
*Ralof comments on the Stormcloak soldier that Alduin kills in the tower and calls him by his previously unknown name, 'Vilfrid'.
*If you escape with Ulfric, he will remember you, unlike in the base game.

Introducing a new voice actor for Hadvar, Patrick Mahoney, who does a fantastic job of creating a believable Nordic accent and making the character sympathetic to the player again, something Jason Marsden's Hadvar was incapable of. Patrick outperforms both Jason Marsden AND Jonas Fisch as Hadvar, with several tweaks and improvements to dialogue Patrick did himself, he's really made the character his own. All of Hadvar's dialogue has been redone and this new voice will remain for the entire game, so long as you have the mod's .esp active.

Compatibility with other SE mods:

Alternate Start - Live Another Life - ONLY works if you follow these steps:
Make sure original opening scene.esp is UNCHECKED, Open the game with LAL, wait for mods to configure, then save it. Close the game, activate this mod and reload that save you just made. Choose the vanilla start. The mods should now work together without issue, as long as this is loaded after LAL and both mods are at the bottom of the load order. (Thanks to JakXLT for discovering this)
Cutting Room Floor - Fully compatible 
Realistic Death Physics - Breaks the executioner part and freezes the game; enable this after escaping Helgen
Windsong Immersive Character Overhaul - Compatible with the compatibility patch, under optional files.

All testing has been done with the mod at or near the BOTTOM of the load order and for me, it works perfectly. So for everyone saying for whatever reason they've put it at the top, THAT'S why it broken! (Probably :P)
