How can a big crossroad, the one between Markarth-Whiterun and Solitude-Falkreath, have nothing. Not even an inn? Now there is! This mod places a new town in the Falkreath hold right next to the crossroad.

The idea is that the town must feel likes its originally part of Skyrim. So no fancy stuff here.

Tnx Jimmy!

Just the latest Skyrim SE

A full living breathing town, where the NPC's have their own life's.

* There is an inn appropriately named "Crossroads Inn" with innkeeper, service maid, bard and a drunk. Here you can rent a room, or get bounty quests from the innkeeper.
* There is a blacksmith in town that works a forge. Her husband repairs broken wagons in town.
* There is a 'apothecary' merchant in town. Her shop is on the lower level, while her husband runs the misc. item shop on the second floor. Pls note this is a very laid back town, so their trading hours only starts at 10 in the morning.
* The town has its own faction and guards with patrols, guard house and jail. The town falls under the jarl of Falkreath by location.
* There are also another two families living there. The two husbands works in the "Brim Mine". The Fasett family has a daughter and the Itard family has a son. The two wives are wannabe Dibella followers.
* A Dibella shrine.
* For the thieves, there's also a fence living in town, if you can find him.

Runs with anything except something that might be placed in the same space.

If for some strange reason you want to get rid of the mod, just delete the file with the BSA from your Data folder. Just make sure you are far away from the town when doing so, and not...say inside in one of the buildings in town. That's the same as deleting your safe file.

Let me know if you find any.

I haven't tested the town to the full extend with the dragon spawn next door. If anyone find issues with the dragon, if there are issues, let me know.

Always save and backup your save files before trying out new mods!

I didn't add any scripts, so the file should be safe. I did make adjustments to the terrain and navmesh. I didn't change the vanilla navmesh, just moved it out of the way, and handmade my own new navmesh for affected areas.

I love trees, so I added some to the town to give it a better atmosphere even if the town is on the edge of the grass fields, its still on the edge of the forest as well. So no, I want change that. Most of the NPC's are essential, so they won't die. That's just the way I like to do it.

There are currently no quests from this town other than the bounty quests. Its just a town as any other in the game.

1.1 Cleaned the esp file
Fixed the floating hay
Fixed unaligned meshes in both town gates
Added just a few things to the mine
The mine is also now mostly iron (more realistic)
Fixed the ownership inside the Flower Pot shop
Fixed the Flower Pot shop merchant who had the wrong voice type and therefore didn't want to sell
Halved the amount of guards for the town (more in tune with other towns)

1.0 Initial SE release
