The Ancient Profession Light for Enderal 28Apr2021 1.3

About This File

This is a very simple prostitution mod for Enderal that lets you work as a prostitute in the game's inns. It works similarly to inn prostitution in my full-size Skyrim quest mod, The Ancient Profession, which is where it gets its name.

 

Unlike the full-size mod, this mod does not have any quests, and there are no licenses that you need to get. It exists only to provide extremely simple inn prostitution. Because there are no quests and not a lot of writing required, I didn't put any player character gender checks in the dialogue. You can use this to play as a male or female prostitute.

 

The developers of Enderal made innkeepers work slightly differently than they do in Skyrim for no obvious reason, so it's necessary to have a mod specially made for Enderal to have inn prostitution that works the same way as in my Skyrim mod.

 

How does it work?

  • Just go up to any innkeeper and ask "May I sell my company in your inn?" to begin
  • You will have to rent a room and pay a cut to the innkeeper
  • You will not have to rent a room in Duneville, but you will still have to pay a cut to the innkeeper
  • Solicit anyone in the inn or the surrounding area (with some limitations) by asking "May I show you a good time?"
  • You will receive 20 EXP for every client you entertain - about the same you get for killing a rat
  • If you leave the area without paying the innkeeper's cut, you will have 24 hours to correct your mistake, or you will receive a bounty

 

Limitations and known issues

As technically impressive as Enderal is, the developers obviously didn't care about supporting mods that relied on Skyrim factions or on locations and their keywords in any real way. In that area, the game is half-implemented at best. I tried to smooth over some of it, but I only went so far with it.

 

  • In most areas, you should be able to leave the inn and solicit clients in the area of the inn, but there may be one or two where this doesn't work, or it doesn't work as well as it should
  • It's possible you may enter a house or other interior cell and be told you left the city or town you were in. This is again because the Enderal developers didn't fully implement locations.
  • Everyone you solicit will accept the solicitation, with two exceptions. I may change this later, or I may just leave it as it is. The two exceptions are NPCs that you have already recently entertained and NPCs who are involved in scenes like watching a bard.
  • You can't solicit NPCs who are sitting at gambling tables. Their dialogue telling you to sit down overrides all other dialogue. I'm not sure if I will even try to do anything about it.
  • I haven't finished the game yet, so I have no idea if this is lore-friendly, if you care about that.

 

Installation

I strongly recommend using a mod manager, because this mod overwrites at least one vanilla Enderal script to patch up some problems I found with the way room rentals work, where the room might lock too early, or the innkeeper might think you had already rented the room when the last rental had long ago expired.

 

Make sure you are pointing the mod manager at the correct directory for your Enderal installation. If you installed it as a mod, this should be your Skyrim directory. If you installed it from Steam, it will be its own Enderal Special Edition directory.

 

Upgrading to 1.3

It is safe to upgrade from any 1.x version to 1.3 in a game in progress, as long as you don't have an inn whoring session active. You may experience some problems if you have a session active during the upgrade, but they should work fine the next time you start a session. For best results, end your current whoring session before the upgrade.

 

Is this compatible with Enderal for Skyrim LE?

Yes, as of version 1.2. Make sure that you download the correct version for your installation of Enderal. Use SE for Enderal Special Edition and LE if you are not playing Special Edition.

 

Be aware that I have not tested the LE version anywhere near as much as the SE version, because I actually play Enderal Special Edition, and I don't play the LE version.

 

Future plans

Probably none, other than bug fixes if I see something isn't working right while I'm playing the game. I might make a few improvements, but I made it to bring prostitution similar to my Skyrim mod over to Enderal for my playthrough now that Enderal SE is out. I am still working on that Skyrim mod and still playing this game, so I doubt I will spend much time on this one past what I have already done.

 

Anyone who wants to use it as the basis for something more complex and interesting may feel free to do so, with credit to the original.


What's New in Version 1.3

Released

  • Enable prostitution in the Duneville tavern. The man at the bar doesn't rent rooms, so you don't have to rent one from him, but he will still take the usual cut.
  • Bug fix: You can no longer solicit dogs that you can say "Bad dog!" to, or things like that.
