This is how far I got yesterday on the Stormcloak Camp. It’s just an outline of a camp and pretty empty still. This is all just made with vanilla stuff. I call it Camp Varglya. Varglya means Wolf’s Lair in Swedish, but makes for a good word in old Skyrim Nordic too.
I’ve also published a Stormcloak version of Camp Argentum. This version of the .esp, found in the Optional Files, will make the Imperial camp inhabitants aggressive towards the player. It’s meant for Stormcloak gameplay, but is also suitable for others who want to fight the Legion. They’re also set to respawn. Furthermore, I updated the camp design a bit; added fires burning, smoke and threw the statics around a bit to make it all look more like a battlefield, and it looks epic indeed.
Camp Argentum is now published on the Nexus. I’m not even remotely hoping for a hotfile with this small thing, but endorsements and screenshots would be appreciated nonetheless. Now I need to rest a bit.
Here are some screenshots from my Camp Argentum.
I now have thirteen soldiers manning the camp. I’ve got everything from officers and regular soldiers, a signifer (Roman standard bearer) to a Battlemage, an archer, an Orc smith and so on. They all have AI packages, which includes a “roll call” at 5 in the morning when they all line up in the middle of the camp. They are all recruitable as followers. Some of them might look similar, which soldiers are supposed to do in their uniforms, but they all have an individual file with background stories I’ve written (readable in the Centurion’s Tent file cabinet). The camp is just a small mod, but is now so polished and well-working that I’ll release it on the Nexus this weekend. Bloody good for roleplaying an Imperial soldier or officer. Stay tuned.
Here’s a little thing I’m working on. My Imperial Legion officer character didn’t have a suitable home, so I made him Camp Argentum, where he also gathers his special legion cohort. I don’t know if I’ll ever release this one, since it’s very specific for my character, but it’s fun to create. I’ve been using Meo’s tents. Just like back in the good old days. It’s loosely based on real Roman camp designs.
Here are some images from my main modding project, Azura’s Watch. The Azura’s Dawn mansion mod is just a small precursor to this one. I’ve been working on my tropical island paradise, on and off, since July last year. I have to release another beta version soon.
