New travelling Mages roam the roads of Skyrim, out on College business. Studying, working on deliveries for the new Guild Hall, visiting merchants and relaxing at taverns. While they're busy on College Duty and won't have much to say to you, they will assist any College member should danger arise... And danger is on its way...

*Not recommended for play without ICMF.

Update to SSE V2.0 (Dec. 31, 2016):

- Fast-White-Clouds now has extended dialog. The quest he gave is no longer in your quest log. It's simply a hint to the quest locations, up to you to go and visit, and if need be, clear the trouble.
- Aranthil now has more conversation options, including clues about the schools location or their specifications, on occasion.

Update to SSE version 3.0 

3.4: Added a traveling mage between Falkreath and Whiterun's school. New beverage vendor outside of Whiterun's school. Added the voicefiles for character dialogue.

3.3: Cleaned out the textures from other mods, exported the files from a clean install of Skyrim, purified the download files.

3.2: Yet another attempt at exporting the Facegen and fix the brownface bug. Also added: journals! We have 2 entries of journals by 2 of the new schools' leader, detailing how they created their new spells, and how the school came to be.
