"Yngvarr's Hall" near Kagrenzel.



Soft Requirement:
Face Light 
High-res tintmask config for SKSE

for armor:
-Rustic Clothing 
-aMidianBorn Nordic Carved 

This makes hair match beard and brows and prevents being too bright:
-Superior Lore-Friendly Hair (rough version)

Customize werebear with blind eye and grey fur:

Since the game scales every npc above or below base height to 1.0 when interacting with the world or animations are played. Be aware that animations won't match exactly anymore with this (for example hovering hands)
-Universal Race Scale Remover

-Place below any follower framework (actually load order does not matter, since he is not in the potential follower faction) and don't manage with it.

-Follower Live Package will break the Sparring when he is following, either disable Friendly Fire related things in MCM or use Sparring only when dismissed.

-Other mods that add bear mounts, need their conditions for Idle animation : BearIdleRoot, BearSwimRoot, either forwarded or patched (depending on load order). Idle because else it would sleep all the time, Swim since there's no mounted swim animation.

-Not compatible with Ravens Nest Tower, Hall uses the same location

Extract contents to Skyrim/Data/ folder.

Remove Yngvarr_Follower.bsa, Yngvarr_Follower.esp from Skyrim/Data/ folder.
It's never recommended to remove mods midgame.

Preset? Where is the beard from?

No, i don't have the preset anymore. To clarify, since this is getting asked again and again: the beard was made by Dividedbythe9s, go check out the great follower "Khord - The Lost Dwemer"
You have to set Khord's beard playable in the Creation Kit. For SE you need to remove the tri's from the long beard in the esp.



I have lost him. What's the RefID?

When Waiting he will return Home after 3 days, with Relax never. You can use the summon spell or console to find him:
BaseID: **000D62
RefID: **005A64
To Summon him:
prid **005A64
moveto player

(** means mod index of Yngvarr_Follower.esp in your load order)

Will he be able to get cured?

Version 1.5 added a Cure Quest it can get started after Kodlak has been cured and 7 days have passed since first meet.

If he still won't wear other armor?

You can try "Simple Outfit Manager" or remove his default clothes via showinventory drop xxxxxxx(outfit id for YngvDefaultClothes and shoes)

About the name
Yngvarr with two "r's" is the old norse variant of this name. There are many derivates like Yngvar, Ingvar, Ingver, Iver, Ivarr, Igor and so on. 
The name was inspired by Iver of "The Banner Saga".

Stuck in Werebearform

First, try click on him with console and type recycleactor, wait a few ingame hours. If this doesn't work click on him with console and type setrace 0_YngvarrRace . I added a Failsafe Transform Back spell with Version 1.7, checks once a day. And also added a optional Fix Yngvarr Spell (for being stuck in beastform or weird behavior, gets removed after use) if it's still occurring.

Used on screenshots:

Patrician ENB
Silent Horizons ENB
LH's HD Face scars
Oldman Hood found in Yngvarrs Hall

Known Issues:
-As a Werebear he will sometimes retreat from higher leveled enemies, it looks like this behavior is hardcoded and i can't influence it
-Old armor clipping (will maybe redo it someday)
-Unequips weapon and reequips when combat starts (intentional, since he played idle anims when weapon was drawn, resulting in being unable to attack or mount)
