About this mod

Like my other mods, this one makes use of the worldspace behind the Skyrim border and truly expands the game to Cyrodiil, Morrowind and Solstheim. This mod offers you 4 new towns with NPCs, 2 dungeons, 5 quests, a players house near Solstheim, a Castle south of Riften, fully voiced followers and more. Connected with Shadow of Morrowind.

Nyhus is located in Cyrodiil, south of the Rift, Skyrim. A town taken by mainly, hardened Nordic warriors under leadership of Folkvar. This town contains a few houses, an Inn with local beverage, a blacksmith, an apothecary and a shrine of Mara.
To go to Nyhus, travel from Riften to the border of Morrowind. There will be roadsigns behind the bridge. Just follow the signs and you will enter an abandoned gate which guards the border Skyrim / Cyrodiil. When you enter the gate, you'll discover dead bodies; one of these bodies contains a diary which informs you about Nyhus and it's environment.

~ Nyhus, just across the border in Cyrodiil. Claimed by Nordic warriors, loyal to Ulfric Stormcloak. Or are they just adventurers? ~

It is a dangerous environment. When approaching Nyhus, you'll notice the Nordic colonists struggling with an army of Thalmor Elves . After killing it's commander, you'll be on a quest. Where do these Thalmor elves come from? Where are they hiding? The quest will lead you to the wastelands where you have to fight the Thalmor, but you'll encounter also other sorts of enemies.

Not only the Thalmor and even Ogres, located in an abandoned fort, but also a group of vampires under Mordor's leadership, is a real threat to Nyhus. These vampires claimed a small village, ruined the houses, digested the people living there and draining the lifeforce of trees around them. They noticed the adventurers in Nyhus and decided they will be their next victims.

Notable NPC' s in Nyhus are Folkvar (leader and questgiver of the group of hardened Nords), Rygar (a crazy, anti-social warrior), Karita (a Breton/Nordic warrior and potential follower) and Brother Marcus (works in the temple of Mara in Riften, but visits Nyhus in the weekends, potential follower).

The area near Nyhus has a lot to offer: a Mara Shrine, an Ogre Fort, a dead village, and some areas to explore. When you are tired of your Skyrim-life, you can decide to jump from Dive Rock, after you drank some Riften Blood (worth to try this out!).

GRONDAL (SKYRIM)_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This mod also expands the Rift Hold to the south, by adding a mountainlocked area: GRONDAL. You can enter this area through a cave passage, from Nyhus or, for real adventurers, through the mountains. Grondal area, bordering the Cyrodiil mountains, has lower latitude and it feels/looks a tad warmer. You can visit a Talos Shrine with crazy Talos worshippers, rebuilding the small village of Grondal, which was laid in ashes in the beginning of the Civil war in Skyrim.

~Grondal area, a mountainlocked area which is the southernmost part of the Rift, bordering Cyrodiil.~

Grondal has a history and had it's own Thane, loyal to the jarl of Riften. It's Thane is dead and what's left is an abandoned, haunted castle. This castle could be yours. The player may choose to discover it's background but it is not necessary. When you have found the key, you'll enter a dark, haunted castle. It has lightable fireplaces and braziers, so you can light up the place a bit and might be good enough for the player to stay here. Might be a perfect castle for a vampire.

~A haunted castle. Could be yours. Located in Grondal, this castle contains a dining room, sleeping room, a large room on the first floor, a small garden and has little extra's like lightable fireplaces and braziers....and wandering ghosts. ~

~Like I said, a haunted castle ~

PRYAI VILLAGE & TEL EYRITH (MORROWIND)__________________________________________________________________________________________

This mod doesn't only touch Cyrodiil, but Morrowind as well. Just behind the border of Cyrodiil, in Morrowind, there is a small Dunmer village located, called PRYAI VILLAGE. This village is ruled as a southern outpost of The Redoran House. You can trade with these Dunmer, who are farmers, miners and fishermen. A powerful mage is guarding this village from a hill.
From Pryai village you can take the boat to Tel Mithryn (Solstheim) and claim your abandoned playerhouse on an island in a small Telvanni town, TEL EYRITH, an archipelago south of Tel Mithryn.

Last but not least: you can travel from Tel Mithryn to Morrowind (the continent) by uploading this mod! All you have to do is use your rowboat from your playershouse on a Island south of Tel Mithryn.

- Skeleton Guardians: stronger skeletons with armor. Tough enemies for low level players
- Black Spitter: small black spiders. If you encounter just one, that wouldnt be much of a problem. But mainly they can be found in packs of ten or more. Even for medium level players, a pack of black spitters is a problem.
- Zombies: Weak undead which can be found in the dungeon near Nyhus.
- Zombie wolves: little stronger than the wolves found in Skyrim
- Bush Trolls: These smaller, green trolls wander in packs. They can be found near ruins and they shit all over the place.
- A yellow dragon called Shulagdiiv, guarding a hidden entrance to sovngarde (when you elegantly wish to finish your character)
