New Vominheim
by: venjhammet

Lore Story:
Thousands of years ago there was a powerful dark lord necromancer named Vuldur who ruled over Vominheim with force and intimidation. The citizens of the land lived in constant fear until one day a young nord prince name Valdgar stood up and rebelled against them. Gifted with the way of the voice, the young prince together with his followers stormed the temple. A grand battle ensued between the dark elven lord master and the young nord prince. Eventually the young prince managed to wound the dark lord. Facing imminent defeat, the dark lord fled to Desolate Veil and finally the land was freed from the tyranny of the cultist group and their former master.

New Vominheim is a DLC size mod much larger than Solstheim with questline and 50+ dungeons and locations waiting to be discovered and explored. Defeat powerful enemies and collect unique armor sets and weapons as you journey into this unforgiving land. It also has houses you can own, followers to recruit and even a large cavern like Blackreach to explore and some extremely challenging dungeons to test your character's build.

To start your adventure you must head to Solstheim and go north of Damphall Mine and there you will encounter a group of cultist the Disciples of Vuldur looking for a certain individual (you) to assassinate. Read their note then your journey begins. Level requirements will be atleast level 20. Available on both SE and AE.

This Mod encourages you to explore the island and does not always points you where to go. There are no interesting NPC voicelines (too much work for a one man job). This is already a massive undertaking for me.  It's mainly made for exploration and the existence of the Quest only adds a bit flavor to the game. Hope you enjoy this mod and support it.

How to go back to Skyrim or Solstheim:

After you finish the main Quest "The Land of Fire and Ice" a fast travel marker will be available near Whiteshore and Mer Varden.
-Near Whiteshore, a fast travel to Skyrim
-Near Ver Varden, a fast travel to Solstheim

You can also go back via boat.
-Whiteshore dock to Skyrim
-Mer Varden dock to Solstheim

Important things to take note:

1. May install during mid playthrough provided its your first time to play this mod
2. If you played Land of Vominheim before then its highly recommended you start a new game  (You can get away with this by uninstalling Land of Vominheim while you are on Skyrim then install New Vominheim: NOT RECOMMENDED)
3. Show some respect, no posting on other site please
4. Compatible with all of my Reworked Dungeons, Standalone Dungeons and Hammet Dungeon Pack.
5. Get the right Skyrim version to avoid issue:

a. SE for v1.5.97.0.8 
b. AE for v1.6.353 
c. AE for v1.6.640

As for the Skyrim GOG version. I don't have that, I am using the Steam version. I can't say if v1.6.353 or 1.6.640 can be used for Skyrim GOG. Also please read the patch notes if you are on Steam for what are their differences. Lastly no request for port to console. All of my mods will remain Nexusmods exclusive only (PC only )
