About this mod

Adds a book to your inventory with detailed instructions on how to find all the Creation Club / Anniversary Edition content, because it's easier than exiting the game and scrolling through the Creation Club menu for a short description.

Permissions and credits
With the Skyrim Anniversary update, Creation Club quests no longer auto-start when installed. While I personally see this as an improvement, I have seen comments from others who don't. The Creation Club menu gives a brief description on how to find things, but it's awkward to use and doesn't always have enough detail, and so I wrote this guide.

This mod adds a guidebook to your inventory when installed, with detailed instructions on how to find all Creation Club content in Skyrim Anniversary Edition. The book is marked as a quest item so you can't accidentally drop it. Does not require any Creation Club content, but obviously you won't find the content described if you don't have it.

And if you don't want an in-game guide, here are the complete contents:

Adventurers Backpack
Backpacks can be crafted at any forge or bought from general traders.

Alternative Armors (x15)
Various alternative armors can be bought from blacksmiths or found as random loot. Each of the 15 alternative armors has an associated quest which awards a full set and unlocks them for crafting. The individual quests are listed at the end of this guide.

Arcane Accessories
New spells and robes can be bought from mages or found as random loot. More advanced spells are only sold at the College of Winterhold and Tel Mithryn, and only once you meet certain skill requirements. Alternatively, go to Hob's Fall Cave, which is on the northern coastline between Winterhold and Dawnstar. About halfway through, there is an ancient tome chest containing all 16 new spell tomes.

Arcane Archer Pack
Elemental arrows can be crafted at a forge, bought from merchants, or found as random loot. To learn how to craft and use Telekinesis Arrows, pick up the research notes and spell tome in the Arcanaeum at the College of Winterhold. To learn how to craft Soul Stealer Arrows, go to Kagrumez on Solstheim, then complete the trials and pick up the Dwemer Arrow Diagram amongst the loot.

Arms of Chaos
Go to Skytemple Ruins, on an island north of Winterhold. Hyenril's journal is on a stone table, and starts the quest The Arms of Chaos.

Go to the Dead Man's Drink in Falkreath. In one of the rooms, there is a journal labelled Mysterious Altar, which starts the quest A Dying Wish. Note that you can choose one of three things at the altar, and each option has different quests and rewards, so choose wisely.

Bloodchill Manor
Upon reaching level 12, a courier will deliver a dinner invitation, which starts the quest Guests for Dinner.

Bone Wolf
If you have not already done so, go to the Blue Palace in Solitude and speak to Falk Firebeard about Wolfskull Cave, starting The Man Who Cried Wolf. Some time after completing this quest, a courier will deliver a letter from Falk Firebeard, starting The Wolf Queen Awakened. After completing these two vanilla side quests, a courier will deliver a letter from Bolgeir Bearclaw, starting the quest Let Sleeping Wolves Lie.

Bow of Shadows
Go to Dragonsreach in Whiterun, and ask the Jarl's steward if he needs anything. This starts the quest In the Shadows.

Camping supplies are crafted at a forge and can be used to build a campsite in the wilderness.

The Cause
Upon reaching level 46, a courier will deliver a Stranger's Plea, which begins The Cause questline.

Go to Forelhost, a nordic ruin on the mountain southeast of Riften. It is easiest to approach from the southeast. Chrysamere is wielded by the ghost of a lost paladin, beside the word wall at the end of the dungeon.

Civil War Champions
Enter the Drunken Huntsman in Whiterun. Depending on your involvement (or not) in the civil war, you will either find a note on the counter OR a courier will deliver a letter when you leave. Either way, this will start the quest Battle of the Champions.

The Contest
Enter Candlehearth Hall in Windhelm, and go upstairs. Adonato Leotelli's journal is on one of the tables, and starts the quest Caught in a Web.

Go to the Winking Skeever in Solitude. On one of the tables is a book called The Restless, which starts a quest of the same name. After completing this quest, a courier will deliver a Pirate's Note suggesting you claim the Dead Man's Dread as your home.

Divine Crusader
Go to Four Skull Lookout, atop the cliffs on the east side of the river Karth, south of Karthwasten. It is easiest to approach from the south. There you can take the Relics of the Crusader from two bodies, but are you worthy to wield them?

Dwarven Armored Mudcrab
Buy the ownership deed from Calcelmo at Understone Keep in Markarth.

Elite Crossbows
Go to Ironback Hideout, which is a small shack beside the road, north of the Statue to Meridia, and west of the Thalmor Embassy (near Solitude). There you will find Kragrash's Letter on a table, starting the quest Night Hunter.

Expanded Crossbow Pack
The best place to buy crossbows is the Fletcher in Solitude. You could also try The Drunken Huntsman in Whiterun.

In Whiterun or Rorikstead, ask an innkeeper for work or rumours until you get a bounty for restless spirits, starting the quest The Unquiet Dead. You can also go straight to Goldenhills Plantation east of Rorikstead.

Fearsome Fists
Brawler's gauntlets can be found as random loot, bought from blacksmiths, or crafted with the relevant perks. 

There are fishing spots dotted around Skyrim. Fishing rods and maps can be bought from general traders. Go to Riften Docks to start the questline. Note that fish can be found swimming in bodies of water throughout Skyrim, and it may be quicker to pick them up by hand rather than fishing.

Forgotten Seasons
Runoff Caverns should be marked on your map. It is near the source of the Karth river, southwest of Fort Sungard, about halfway between Markarth and Falkreath. You will have to go through Lost Valley Redoubt to reach it. Before entering the caverns, make sure to inspect the broken dwarven horse outside.

Go to The Frozen Hearth in Winterhold. In one of the rooms, you will find Seeks-Ancient-Artifacts Journal v1, which starts the quest The Sanctuary and the Manufactory. Frostroot Cave is beside Kagrenzel in the eastern mountains, northeast of Shor's Stone. The path starts from the nordic ruin of Ansilvund.

Necromantic Grimoire
New robes and conjuration spell tomes can be found in necromancer lairs. Phinis Gestor is able to sell the 13 new spells at the College of Winterhold, but will only have a small selection available at any given time. As always, Adept and Expert spells are only sold once you meet certain skill requirements, and Master spells require completion of the ritual spell quest which becomes available at 90 skill.

Netch Leather Armor
Head north from the Skaal Village on Solstheim. Haknir's Shoal is a campsite on a small island, but there is a single tent on the shore before you reach it.

Note that the objective to visit Fort Hraggstad near Solitude is optional, but there are some unique boots there.
