DESCRIPTION
Adds a necromancer themed armor which contains inlays of black soul stone with multilayer paralax effect. It also conatins a whole bunch of other effects like animated glow effects, animated soul shards and particle effects. It can be crafted and upgraded with the daedric smithing perk and is a bit better than your normal daedric armor.





The Effects look a bit over the top but replace the skyrim soundtrack with the one from DOOM Eternal and this armor will match perfectly
(Trust me, I tried xD)



INSTALLATION
Install with your prefered mod manager.

COMPABILITY
- Since I don't alter anything in any way and just add this armor, I can't think of any incompabilities. (Although the armor has quite a few polys and other stuff so I don't know whether it runs smoothly on slower computers).
- The cuirass has to use two additional body slots (58 and 59) due to technical limitations. So items from other mods that use them will be unequipped uppon equipping the cuirass.

THINGS I WOULD LIKE TO ADD IN THE FUTURE
- I'll add Bodyslide stuff when I'm sure I don't have to change the meshes anymore. Done.

- Originally I planned to make it automaticly refilling enchanted weapons from the power inside the Soul Gem parts. But I didn't dive much into
Papyrus scripting yet so this is not (yet) included.
- I also wanted to make some armor animations only play when your weapon is drawn or you hit an enemy. Unfortnunatly this involves messing with behaviour files and stuff, which is not very easy (at least so it seems to me). That said, I may add something like this in future updates.
So if you are an expert on one of these topics and want to answer my questions when I'm stuck, leave me a message xD

- I started making weapons that match the armor but I don't quite like them yet. They will probably come out as a separate mod in the future...

CREDITS
- Although I made all the assets of the mod myself, I want to thank all the tool- and tutorialmakers that made my life so much
easier! This is the first time for me to make 3D models, textures,
alter nif files with nifscope, painting weights with outfitstudio or add
any content via Skyrim CK. So thanks to all those who either helped
make those great tools or provided tutorials for how to use them
(because ,oh god, I think I read them all xD)
- Also thank to the guys in the Nexus Discord who cheered me up while I was making this :P
