This is a WIP in beta state. Please read the description carefully and the forum post.
Before installing this mod make a safe so you can roll back to in case you want to uninstall. Otherwise you will get problems. Install with MO or NMM . I don't recommend to uninstall midgame. Go back to a safe before you have installed the mod.
This is a standalone mod dependent only on
FixLipSync is not needed but highly recommended. Fix Lip Sync
May I introduce to you
Sherda Akkadim, chronist, the Breton from Cyrodiil
Tomalik'r Torquesson, the farmer Redguard from Hammerfell
Chiomara Northwind, smithing witch and pure Nord
Ramgar of Stony Creek, true Nord, scout and hunter
Ruby Trevelyen, Imperial of Cyrodiil and agent
Eldrid Firerider, barmaiden in Whiterun, Breton witch.
Playerhorse Vala. If you play alternate start mods you have to search for her and do a little fight if you want to achieve her. If you play Helgen Intro she's available after you are out of the dungeon.
custom AI and fully voiced, come with their own horses
change clothes in player home and back to armor when outside. Different clothes in a week, split in two days, three days and weekends
Different sandbox packages for different locations like Inn, Playerhome, Shop, and if player is in furniture state
they loot once a day at clearable locations
Chiomara and Eldrid can heal the player or the whole party
Chiomara can collect things for you
Chiomara and Eldrid will train magic if player sits outside in a camp or other clearable location (after clearing). They train for an hour each themselves before midday and together in the afternoon. Only once per day
Tom and Ruby train melee if player sits outside in a clearable location, at afternoon for an hour
Ramgar can lead the player to 19 different locations
15 banter scenes and several misc dialogue
Sherda sings for you if you at home if you wish
fast mount and dismount through a script
they have the lightfoot perk and will not activate traps
Followers: Take the spelltomes out of their inventory, you will need them. You can summon each follower and each horse. If you recruit them inside a shop or inn they will start following you after going outside because of their sandbox packages.
If they are looting in clearable locations and dont follow you, draw your weapon or start sneaking. They stop looting and follow you quickly. Followers loot only once per day. Look from time to time in their inventory.
You can let them stayput or wait and relax, then they start sandboxing and wander around. They wait until you come back - forever, if you forget them.
Where to find: Sherda, Eldrid, Chiomara and Tom have their daily schedule in Whiterun. If you arrive on a sunday, you have to search for them. They could be on a ride or in the Bannered Mare or wander somewhere around. You will find them at late evenings together in the Bannered Mare. Weekdays they are working (Tom outside Whiterun). Look around to find them. Ramgar lives at Hunter's Rest and Ruby is in Helgen Keep. You can recruit her while playing Helgen Intro, than she has different dialogue as if you play alternate start mods.
Follower Horses and Vala playerhorse: If you play alternate start, you have to look for a map marker in the tundra to find her. You can only talk to her if all enemies are dead. Look at first in the saddle bags. Take the ring out and don't loose it! If you equip her ring she is a horse that can be ridden.
If you unequip the ring you can't ride her but talk to her and give her orders to wait or follow. You can put off the gear and you can open the saddlebags to let her carry your burdens. Storage is safe.
You can enable the riding option also through dialogue. You can ride with or without saddle. If you want to enable the dialogue after that you need to equip and unequip the ring.
Vala is a strong fighter if you have the dialogue activated. If the riding option is activated she will flee from enemies to get her out of the way while fighting.
Vala will follow you as long as you are outside and not in cities. If you don't want it, just talk to her and let her stay.
If you are using followers from Tasheni Followers their horses will follow Vala, except the follower is waiting. Then the horses start sandboxing where they are.
If you have achieved Vala and ride another mount Vala will follow, except you've told her to wait.
If you tell your followers to send their horses away, horses run home. They will be teleported to the followers if you are hop on a mount and if you unmount they will leave again. If you want to have them following again you need to tell every follower that he should call his horse.
Included is now the Stony Creek Farm, where Ramgar's parents live. Don't use the mod Stony Creek Farm together with Tasheni Followers mod. The farm lies besides the Imperial Camp Eastmarch at the lake near Stony Creek Cave. It is part of a questline that's not implemented, because it's not ready yet. It's worth to visit.
Included is also Shepherd Erk Thrymsson and his flock of sheep. He's at sundays in Whiterun but wanders over the week to different locations. It's pretty relaxing to accompany him and safe also. He will fight against everything that smells like an enemy.
Mod is incompatible with mods that changes
the area of Whiterun in front of the stables, where the cabbage field is
besides Old Hroldan, the area under the great trees. I also added some clutter in front of Pelagia farm and some flowers in front of Drunken Huntsmen.
The area of Imperial Camp Eastmarch.
Mod is compatible with Convenient horses, but it overwrites the settings for Vala, so you have to set them in CH. Storage of CH is not the storage that Vala owns.
I have not tested the mod with follower mods like AFT or UfO.
Please report bugs – I have not the ability to test much and can't do anything if I don't know what bugs occured. Mod works for me but perhaps not for you.
Advance dialogue. It was planned for this release but my voice actors are not ready and so it will have to wait until the next update comes in hopefully March.
Development of questlines. I started already. I have tons of ideas and no plan how to get this done. We will see what happens.
Songs included (singing without instruments):
Chim-El-Adabal: music by Tasheni, text from Imperial Library
Sleeping Giant: music and text by Tasheni
Anvil's Golden Shore: music Irish traditional, text adapted from Paddy's Green Shamrock Shore
Ride On: Irish traditional
Eldrids short songs written by TasheniCredits:
This mod would not be possible without some people who helped me a lot with different things:
Very warm thanks to my boyfriend who got my back and gave me the time to work everyday on this mod.
Thank you Dark Creations and nexus for hosting my project and files.
Thank you for my very special voice actors, you've done a fine job:
kaomau for the voice of Ruby Trevelyen
Joachim 'dojoe' Fenkes for the voice of Ramgar of Stoney Creek
Roarbee for the voice of Tomalik'r Torquesson RoarBee on youtube
Mona Bruemmer for the voice of Chiomara Northwind
Eldrid Firerider and Sherda Akkadim are voiced by Tasheni
I'm also very thankful for the help of IsharaMeradin and ReDragon2013 on nexus for helping me with scripting and other things.
All assets are used with permissions except of the horse saddles by Sedryn. He's not available for me, perhaps inactive. So, dear
Sedryn, I ask you right here for your permission for using these wonderful saddles and hope you will read this or someone has contact
and will inform you.
Look at the mod and decide if I can use your assets. If not, I will remove them from the mod immediately but this would be very sad.

What's New in Version 0.3.0 See changelog
Changelog version 0-3-0:
- reworked the scripts structure. Deleted orphan scripts and implemented invisible continue dialogue. No more needed multiple same scripts for i.e. trade or wait. That reduces the number of the scriptfragments a lot.
- optimized texture size with the exception of normal face maps, because faces get blocky if you do so.
- implemented the great wolves from Mihail Monsters and Animals and reworked their textures because they were to blocky. To achieve the player horse you will have to fight for her first. Horse is not running after you anymore. It's only a little task but fits much better as to have her simply as a gift.
- player can now decide if the horses of the followers should follow or not. Follower have a dialogue option to send the horses away if you don't want to have them with you. If the player mounts, the horses will teleport to their owner, if he dismounts, they run home. By default they follow their owner and wait when npc is waiting, if player is riding a horse that is not Vala. If player uses Vala, they follow Vala. If you let Vala wait, all horses wait with her.
- implemented a script to fast mount and dismount followers. This was pretty annoying to wait for them all to get mounted. It's not needed anymore, just mount and ride away, they follow you immediately on their horses and dismount all together like one. On weak machines (like mine) sometimes one or two of them don't mount, but they do in the moment you ride away. Thousand times tested, it works pretty nice. Thank you IsharaMeradin for helping me.
- checked missing dialogue and recreated lip-files.
- tested the complete functionality of the followers. There should be no problems anymore with missing topics and scripts that not work. All spells work as intended.
- created the Stony Creek Farm and the parents of Ramgar. They are part of a quest that is not ready yet. But you can use the farm as a resting point for your undertakings in that region. It's a nice place to stay. It will become a player home after the quest is done. From the inside you can look through the windows and see the lake and sheep and birds circling around.
Changelog version 0.2.1
added missing base dialogue for Ramgar
changed sheep textures
changed Ruby's Katanas from vanilla to model from InsanitySorrow
added missing base dialogue of Chiomara and added two missing scripts
reworked training packages
adjusted dialogue conditions
Changelog version 0.2.0
- added acquire and training packages. Eldrid and Chiomara will practise magic if player is sitting outside at a clearable location, Ruby and Tom train melee. They do it at a certain hour, though hour is different for all. All followers will now collect different things once per day.
- reworked sandboxpackages and adjusted animations
- created sandbox packages that will fire when player is in furniture state and no other package is running
- reworked some packages that stops working
- reworked all faces and tintmasks
- Adjusted scene conditions and reworked scenes that refused to play
- added missing sound- and lipfiles
- deleted orphan dialogue topics and branches
- recreated facial animations
- removed dependency of update.esm
- manually cleaned with TESVEdit
