    I've been wanting to make this one for a long time, but I had to buckle down and learn a bunch of new things in the Creation Kit to make it happen, on top of all the complexity of adding 9 new outcomes to a quest that originally only had one. I apologize if some things are not up to the highest standard of quality because of my lack of experience, but I'm happy to hear critiques of how I can improve.

    If you like what I'm doing, please leave an endorsement! It helps more people find the mod.

    The mod sounds like a very good idea and it was about time someone worked on it, sadly, it is not working in my heavy modded game. I used xEdit to check if anything was overwriting it but I didn't find anything affecting Jaree Ra, as this is the last plugin about him to load (the other one modifying him is USSEP). Also, this mod is loaded after Immersive Citizens. I talked with both Jaree-Ra and Aldis before and after having Hargar's journal without success.

    Now, I'm not the Dragonborn as I started with Live Another Life elsewhere, do you think that could be affecting the quest? Also, speaking to Ahtar doesn't give me the radian quest for the scaped criminal.

    I'm going to dispatch Jaree-Ra but I just wanted to know if someone else has the problem.

      The culprit I discovered was "The Choice Is Yours" (TCIY) which will only trigger "Lights Out" if you accept Jaree-Ra's offer, whereas in vanilla and this mod the quest is triggered before you accept it Placing this mod after TCIY fixed it for me. Else you'll need to accept the offer and then either turn those lights off or dispatch Jaree-Ra. Did this in one of my test-runs . I had previously refused his offer so found him at the Docks where I accepted the offer then killed him and his sister. The fine: 40 gold for assault (as opposed to 1000 gold fine for murder if I hadn't accept his offer first)

    This mod is a great concept, and it mostly works as intended, but I cannot for the life of me get the arrest scene to play. It is at the end of my load order, so nothing could be overwriting it. I don't understand whats happening. Any advice would be appreciated.

      Is the option to report to the Captain still available to you in your journal? If not, finding (or re-reading the evidence you found) should trigger this option again. However, if you've already presented the evidence to the Captain and he's at least started on his way to arrest Jaree-Ra did you rush ahead of the Captain to make sure you had a prime spot to witness the arrest? Did this in one of my test-runs and had to retrace my steps up the ramp to a spot behind the Captain before the scene would play out.

    To those who had problems getting this quest to work properly, I'm going to go on a limb and assume that you also have "The Choice is Yours" (TCIY) as part of your load order. If so, all you need to do (before talking with Jaree-Ra for the 1st time) is to reverse LOOT's load order so that this mod is loaded after TCIY.

    TheChoiceIsYours.esp
    SaveTheIcerunner.esp

    Doing so will allow this mod's quest options to trigger without you having to agree to Jaree-Ra's scheme.

    Sadly, it doesn't work for me, seeing as the alternative outcomes don't show up, no matter what I do. I think it might have broken the quest as well, seeing as I can't even put out the fire when I tried the vanilla approach.

    Hey Parapets thank you for the good work. I've just published an Italian translation by the way. (It should be ok since you gave us modification permission right?)

    Hello,
    I installed the mod before I even spoke to Jaree-ra for the first time and I never had any new lines of dialogue. I just found the diary and went back to Solitude. I had to type in the console "setstage MS07 55" for the quest to start and see the dialog options added by this mod. It all works, but when Captain Aldis is in front of Jaree-ra, I have to push him to make the arrest scene work. I'll meet him back in his cell.
