A while back myself and Jormungdr started working on a Coldharbor mod. Since then it's pretty much been abandoned by the both of us in favor of other things. I would love to see it actually happen one day but for now, here it sits.
The mod itself has a world space that is playable, alt named NPC's with their own AI packages, and a really awesome place for screenshots. Just....don't go in the water or the sea monsters will eat you.
Anyway, if you want a look, just head to the link for m
Now that I have a new computer, I can get back to making Skyrim stories. I really wanted to keep going with the other one I was doing but sadly the characters are lost. The files I had just didn't crossover to Racemenu 3 very well. I decided to start with something new. If anyone can think of a way for me to bring the old characters back or have that story be a part of this one let me know. I'm all ears. Now onto the story .....
Chapter 1 - A Fresh Start and a Dead End "I've finally done it!
This is another somewhat random story. Let me know what you think.
Out of Mind
A week ago, Amelia woke up in a forest. She was alone. All she had was the maid's dress she was wearing and a scrap of paper that said, "I'm sorry. Please forgive me."
She was sure the handwriting was not hers but whose could it be?
Wherever she was was dangerous. Wild animals roamed the woods and bandits ruled the hills. She had traveled for days and not found a living soul. She had wandered into
Nylev's Adventures Part 1
Nylev: "Oww my head. Where did that mage's portal send me now? Grr, I'm so tired of that little gnome screwing up his portal destinations! Last time I landed on an orcs dinner table and almost didn't make it out of Orgrimmar."
She looked around a bit more but couldn't place her location with one she knew.
"This looks like the Eastern Kingdoms but I don't recognize the area." Nylev pulled a small gem from her pouch and held it in her hand. It contained the corrup
After a year and a half of unemployment I've got a job! Took long enough right? Anyway, I'll be saving for a new computer and get something really good. I had some savings for it but things happened and now I don't.
Anyway, personal stuff aside, I'm going to be laying out the character bios in a blog called Darkwater Raiders.
This is just an update for those following my stories and wondering why I'm jumping around. Well, I'm not really. I've left some clues, some subtle

In the two years following Sybille’s death, Kiva was moved into the position of Court Wizard. Several mages tried for the position but they all met with mysterious deaths or suddenly changed their minds. Finding a dead mage in the streets was starting to be as common as tripping over a stone.

Celine and Kiva arrived in Kynesgrove around late night. People were still frightened about a dragon that flew off from an area north of the city. Oddly enough, it didn’t bother to attack the town. It did fly off with a larger dragon though.
Celine was full of questions about the dragon and asked the innkeeper

After meeting with Alduin, Arissa arrived at the Bannered Mare.
“Just waiting for the dragonborn to showup will be so boring. There is just nothing to do in this city. It’s a trade capital, shouldn’t it be busier,” she grumbled to herself.
She overheard Hulda tell Saadia that a man in strange armor was picked up by the compani

Deep under Skyrim, stood a long abandoned Dwemer facility. The place was old even before the Dwemer had disappeared.
Celes body dumped into the old chamber from the waterfall and came to rest against a board. She had been carried through several miles of underground waterfalls and passageways before finally coming to a stop.
The Blackreach Experiments - Part 6 - Where is the Dragonborn?
The boat came to a stop against an outcropping of rocks. The thud of wood hitting stone was loud enough to get Arissa’s attention.
Arissa noticed a young noble woman alone and unconscious in the boat. “Now what are you doing all the way out here?”
Celine was mumbling in her sleep, “Master…..love….”
Arissa could barely make out the words.
After carrying the young woman inside, Arissa waited by her bed for her to wake
The Blackreach Experiments - Part 5 - No Way Out
Continued from part 4.
Celine cautiously explored her surroundings.
It was obvious that this place had not been used in a while.
“I wonder if I’m actually in the past or this is just a ruin in my time?”
As she made her way through the abandoned castle, she could hear foot steps. They sounded to heavy for a man or an animal. She peered into the next room.
“By the gods!” she thought, “What are those?!”
It took her a minute

Celine, slowly coming to her senses could feel warmth around her, but also the cold ground.
"By the Nine, my head." She peered up and noticed a man towering over her. "Are you the one who pulled me in here?" she asked.
"Yes, I am. You would have died with the others had I not," he said coldly.
"How many made it out?" She was hopeful that at least a handful of people escaped.
"None. You are it. I have nightingales searching Sk

"Stand your ground men! Give them time to evactuate!" yelled Jarl Mani Gustanvinson at his troops. The dragons had ravaged Skyrim. The main cities were cinders. Jarl Gustavinson was trying to get survivors to some nearby caves when the dragons fell upon them.
The surviving guards fought valiantly.
But not everyone survived.
From overhead, Alduin's voice boomed, "It is useless to resist mortals. All shall bow before the D

Part 1 and 2
Celes watched the newcomer. She didn't trust her, but then again, she didn't trust anyone. Was she working with the mages or just some idiot blundering around.
When she was younger, she was fascinated with Dwemer technology. Through years of study and exploration she discovered the Shrine of Mahty. Inside the shrine were several Dwarven backpacks that allowed her to fly.
Part 1 - 4
This story takes place some years after Verra's story. This also concludes the Family Tree story set.
A New Adventure
Background: Hi, my name is Rune. Used to be Runa, but that was before I really lived. After my mom, Verra, killed the dragonborn and set me free, we moved from camp to camp. My life has been great so far. We stayed with some orcs for awhile. Mom wanted to stay though. She met an orc who likes it as rough as she does.
I really can't stay though.
This takes place after Elsa's story. Verra has been wandering through Skyrim for weeks, if not months by this point.
Her first memory was walking through the forest. It was dark and cold. She remembered her mother's name, Elsa, and her name Verra. An insane mage had kept them prisoner but she got away. She had been stumbling through the forest for the better part of a day when she came across a house. Verra collapsed at the doorstep. Sometime later she came to and went
Elsa’s Story – Part 1 – 4
Where Am I?
My name is Elsa. My memory is still a bit fuzzy but let's start at the begining. I woke up in a very strange room, just a locked door and a talking statue. I remember trying to sneak across the border into Skyrim and then a strange light. Next thing I knew I was here.
So apparently the food sitting on the empty table belonged to someone. I mean, it was an inn and no one was there. How was I supposed to know not to take that sweet roll?! They are t
