The Real Shady

Guess who's back, back again, Shady's back, tell a friend.

….nobody wants to see Marshall no more
This mod puts some warm clothes on Shady Sam and gives him something to do. It is a patch, so the original mod is a requirement.

Well if you want Shady…….
You may or may not be aware, but Arthmoor’s Alternate Start - Live Another Life - SSE adds the NPC Shady Sam from Oblivion. Shady Sam is a merchant who is in the business of dealing with stealth-oriented and stolen goods (Elder Scrolls Wiki). However, in his current state, he is a grouchy old man wandering around Dawstar. And no wonder he’s grouchy, he’s freezing his assets off in a robe.

this is what I'll give ya
Shady Sam now wears the Thieves Guild Standard Set. He will help nobody and any crime is acceptable. He is now a fence and will buy stolen goods. His vendor chest is now stocked with an abundance of poisons and daggers, along with some assorted goods for the aspiring thief.

But it feels so empty without me
Shady does not stay in Dawnstar. Now he wanders Skyrim, stopping at all the places that you would expect from someone with Shady’s character. On weekends, Shady spends his time drinking and enjoying life in Riften. Shady should not be trifled with, as his level and fighting skills have been improved.

INSTALLATION
Install with your favorite Mod Manager into your Skyrim\Data folder. In your load order, it should be located below Alternate Start.

REQUIREMENTS
Skyrim SE - Current Version
Alternate Start - Live Another Life - SSE

CREDITS
Arthmoor - for all of his excellent mods and for sharing his modlist with me so I could see how he incorporates Open Cities. I've been a Patron even since and it still forms the base of all my mod builds.
Marshall Mathers
The Modding Community for inspiration
Special mention to MNIKJOM and his excellent mod AI Overhaul SSE. It certainly is not a requirement for this mod, but I was able to learn from his excellent use of AI.

GENERAL OTHER STUFF
Cleaned with TES5Edit

FUTURE PLANS
I would like to add some additional shady activities, and as I think of them I will do so. I also would like to add some "hired muscle" that escorts him to his various locations while also providing some training in Heavy Armor.

THANKS FOR READING TO THE END...AND REMEMBER

MEASURE READ TWICE, CUT INSTALL ONCE
