"A race of stonecutters, artisans, and engineers. They invented machines and built elaborate underground cities where they researched powers to rival the gods themselves. And then, at a time we are still not sure when, they disappeared. The whole people, all at once. Leaving behind only their works."

Why did I create this?

Dungeons and ruins in Skyrim are generally underwhelming in my opinion. They are way too straight forward and made to be easily traversed. Exploration isn't a thing as there is only one path. That isn't fun in a game primarily about dungeon delving. Dungeons should be challenging, confusing and interesting. Steepfall Burrow is a very small dungeon with not that much going on. I always wondered what could have been. This is my mini-expansion to the dungeon which adds a new secret area.

What has been added?
A new area to explore. Everything added fits with the theme of the original dungeon, I always strive to be lore-friendly. I want my creations to be indistinguishable from the vanilla game. I have also taken care to not add to much loot as to not  inflate the players wealth and power but there should still be some rewards for the player to find. Steepfall Burrow should be about 10 minutes longer now.

What I want to achieve

An interesting new experience ideal for both new and returning players. I want to encourage exploration and curiosity. Something could be behind that corner, you just have to check.

Install with mod manager of your choice.

Do not install while your character is inside Steepfall Burrow as some things might get weird.
