***********************************************************************************************************



Lore:
[TLDR: An ancient wealthy family from the Somerset Isles built this castle centuries ago, however
after decades of deterioration, a new owner is in order, and Elias Morrison has chosen the Dragonborn.]
(More Features to come, check the downloads for the most recent version)

The Morrisons were once a ruling family of the Somerset Isles sent to keep tabs on the locals of Skyrim while also keeping a low profile among the populace. They worshiped Auriel, and many other sometimes considered unethical Gods and Daedra. 
After many difficulties and issues with the Somerset Government, the Morrisons fled to their keep, and exiled themselves for years, modifying and altering the interior of the castle conducting somewhat odd, and mysterious renovations and experiments.

After the conflicts back home were finally resolved years later, the Morrisons moved home, and the grand manor was left to entrusted locals who kept the interior in relatively good condition for a time.
However after years of abandonment and wear the castle fell into disrepair, and now Elias Morrison wishes to entrust it to a new, far more worthy owner. 

***********************************************************************************************************



Getting the Castle:

- The Dragonborn has already been entrusted the estate, and it is unlocked and ready for them. West of Ice Water Jetty.
- There are not any quests associated with this player home, just explore and have fun.

- If you get lost, please refer to the layout below.







***********************************************************************************************************

-Features:

*** The NavMesh may be a bit iffy in some areas, companions, and friends are welcome, but might seem a little out of place, or confused *** 




-Planned Future Updates:
we couldn't fit everything into one release, sincewe have many other things that require our time, and so certain WIP features had to be cut so we could actually release the mod. 

- The BloodCrypts:
This will be an area the player can explore and loot, while also uncovering many secrets about the Morrison family. 
- Luxurious Player Bedroom:
We wanted to make the bedroom EPIC for a hero of the world, and we ran into some minor bumps along the way, and are in the process of redesigning the entire room. Check back for future releases.
- More Decorations and Effects/Kitchen Wing:
In the process of finishing the mod as fast as possible, we skimped out on some decorations, and will be adding more  overtime; fear not, they will not interfere with player objects. 
- Ingora Morialis:
This addition is found in the "Excavation Room" It will be a portal to an exterior world space that's focused on taking Screenshots, we want it to look as good as possible and are carefully developing it, this of course takes time, and will be added post-haste.
- Minor Hotfixes:



The Morrison Manor is always expanding and changing, as a result, rooms will be added in future updates
(If you have any ideas or suggestions for new features let me know in the discussions tab, and we will consider implementing them)

FAQ
Q&A:

**************************************************************************************************************************************

- I cant Access a Door! Help!
All the inaccessible doors are that way for a reason, if you find a dead end, that means that wing will be added in a future update.

- I'm getting a FaceGen/CharGen Crash or Issue, Help!
If you run into errors like this download the optional files in the downloads and extract. 

- I attacked the Dragon and now everything is ruined!
If that's the case, Disable it with the console, and learn from your mistakes. 

- I cant find the Castle!
Look at the reference image, It's on the very edge of the world so, you're going to have to run sometime to reach it.
