About this mod

Allows you to adopt Aventus Aretino.

Permissions and credits
Changelogs
You can now adopt Aventus Aretino. Speak to him in the Aretino Residence after completing the quest Innocence Lost.

Compatible with Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch (USSEP) or other mods that return Aventus to the orphanage after the quest. Just speak with Aventus inside Honorhall Orphanage instead.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Once Aventus is adopted the game treats him just like any other adopted kid. To unadopt him you can't just disable this mod; you'll need to do something that allows you to unadopt any kid. In old Skyrim it was possible to do this by disabling Hearthfire entirely and then re-enabling it again; I don't know what can be done for Skyrim SE.

Suggestions for what to try if the option to adopt doesn't show up:
1) Talk to Aventus once. Save/autosave/quicksave. Exit the game to main menu. Reload the new save.
2) Restart the game.
3) Travel to another city and then back to where Aventus is.

Suggestions for what to try if Aventus loses his voice:
1) Delete the mod & patches, and reinstall them again. (This will not make Aventus un-adopted, so no need to worry about losing him.)

--- MOD COMPATIBILITY STUFF ---

I highly recommend using a mod sorter like LOOT - Load Order Optimisation Tool.

Obviously, all the USSEP type of huge overhaul mods should be loaded above (i.e. before) all your other mods.

For Hearthfire Multiple Adoption: Load it above/before this mod.

For Dragon's Keep: Load it above/before this mod.

If you are using ANY mod that changes the appearance of children - that means changing their face and/or their clothes (e.g. RS Children, The Kids Are Alright, Prince and the Pauper) - you will need to download a patch from the optional files section.
NOTE: You should only need one patch / optional file.

If you are using RS Children only, not using USSEP: Download the optional file called Adopt Aventus Aretino patch RS Children.
Load order should be (top to bottom):
  • RSChildren.esp (as of version 1.1.2)
  • adoptAventusAretino.esp (Adopt Aventus Aretino main file)
  • adoptAventusAretino_RSChildren.esp (the patch)

If you are using RS Children and USSEP at the same time: Download the optional file called Adopt Aventus Aretino patch RS Children USSEP.
Load order should be (top to bottom):
  • Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch
  • RSChildren.esp (with USSEP option turned on during install) (as of version 1.1.2)
  • adoptAventusAretino.esp (Adopt Aventus Aretino main file)
  • adoptAventusAretino_RSChildrenUSSEP.esp (the patch)

If you are using The Kids Are Alright: Download the optional file called Adopt Aventus Aretino patch TKAA.
For load order:
  • Put the patch (adoptAventusAretino_TKAA.esp) below both Adopt Aventus Aretino's main file (adoptAventusAretino.esp) and The Kids Are Alright (TKAA.esp).
  • It doesn't matter whether Adopt Aventus Aretino or The Kids Are Alright goes first, as long as the patch is after both.

If you are using Prince and the Pauper only (does not matter whether or not USSEP is used in this case): Download the optional file called Adopt Aventus Aretino patch Prince and Pauper only. Load order:
  • PrinceandPauper.esp
  • adoptAventusAretino.esp (Adopt Aventus Aretino main file)
  • adoptAventusAretino_PrinceandPauper.esp (the patch)

If you are using
Prince and the Pauper and RS Children at the same time (does not matter whether or not you use USSEP in this case): Download the optional file called Adopt Aventus Aretino patch Prince and Pauper with RS Children. Load order should be (top to bottom):
  • PrinceandPauper.esp (with RS Children option selected during install)
  • RSChildren.esp
  • adoptAventusAretino.esp (Adopt Aventus Aretino main file)
  • adoptAventusAretino_PrinceandPauperRS.esp (the patch)
