DESCRIPTION

Stormcloak Rebellion Refine is a standalone, rustic, and faithful damn cute NPC appearance package of the major players of the 4E "Stormcloak Rebellion", staying true to the vanilla game and lore while incorporating some of my personal preferences. This is an on-going project that will hopefully encompass every NPC in Skyrim by the end. Stormcloak Rebellion covers Hadvar, Ralof, leadership of the Imperials, Stormcloaks, and Thalmor. Leveled NPCs and minor characters have not been touched, but may be included in a future update. In the meantime, consider checking out Windsong Immersive Character Overhaul, whose overall visual design helped inspire the direction of this mod and years of Skyrim modding.

Some changes from Unofficial Skyrim Special Edition Patch (AI packages and additional bug fixes) and Cutting Room Floor (unused, base-game inventory items) have been forwarded for convenience). However, and in most cases, any mod that edits an Actor record with require a compatibility patch.

CHANGES

A full list of NPCs modified from this mod is coming soon...
No added accessories or "major" changes this version. Possibly later, I just made this in a day for myself.


LORE

Changes have been made in an effort to better reflect a character's lore and backstory. Characters have had to had their approximate age kept while updating looks. Warpaint and more distinct looks have been given to legate commanders. Most civil war leaders have been made to look more tired, with blue lower-eye socket tints to indicate lack of sleep. Imperials are a bit more clean-cut, while Stormcloaks are a bit more barbaric with wilder hair. Characters who otherwise used default race templates have been given more unique appearances. Thalmor leaders have been redone to give more distinct and "regal" look, they are well-kept, and Elenwen is a super QT.

An additional extension has been made available to further integrate more mods into the game such as Creation Club Content or Beyond Skyrim. Track the mod and my profile on Nexus to stay up to date with this project.
