Gweden Brothel

It all started with the idea that Tsarrina wasn't like the other two Sirens. She didn't go down to Anvil, but stayed behind in the farmhouse. And that place was locked up after the quest, which seemed to be wasteful.

I decided that the solution to both issues was to have her re-open the place as a legitimate brothel after you had killed off the two others. The player would own it, and if you recruited replacement staff, it could be a real earner! Tsarrina was re-scripted to be less agressive, and to surrender after the others died.

Each recruit would have their own quest, before they'd join. This could be pretty well any kind of quest, to suit all styles of play, although a pacifist might not get a full house. I created many more candidates, and quests, than the main recruitment quest needed, as some of them had timing dependencies that could fail. Some were also dependent on competing other quest lines, such as becoming the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood, that not all players would do.

The ladies' outfits are not too revealing, except for Prizna the Dremora, who never wears anything. There's no sex, even after the NPC customers turn up, as the player only gets to eavesdrop on the negotiations. This mod is all about the quests, and almost everything takes place somewhere else.

It wasn't too long before I'd created enough quests to fill the farmhouse, even with an extra sub-basement added. So I expanded to a new building next door, and filled that, too! At this point, Gweden would have started to rival some villages for size, so it was time to expand elsewhere. An alleyway in the Imperial City had a door added, and the Red Dragon Club was added to the mod. This let me do more than just recruitment quests, as this was a cover for the Imperial Spy network, which the player eventually takes over.

With the creation of Uzgash, daughter of Gortwog, and a bear-rider in the Wrothgarians, I introduced a cross-over with the bear riders of The Rumple Mod, for those who run both.

All the time I was building the mod, its story was also being developed as Fan Fiction, at Chorrol, which helped a lot in developing the narrative. The story is also available here, without the comments, and with added images. For more details of the mod, there's a Fake Wiki (also shipped with the mod in the Docs folder).

These are images that didn't become part of the Wiki.

They dance in cages in a room added specifically for that.

... having changed in their rooms, they walk to the dancefloor.

I never got the bathtub furniture to work properly, (entry/exit animations) or this would have happened.

Meena and Dark-eyes wait for customers in the old building at Gweden.

Mod as last uploaded to the Nexus.

The readme has not been updated, so references to the Nexus site are obsolete. This is now the only legitimate source.

The mod is packaged as a BAIN archive, because I use Wrye Bash. That is compatible with other mod managers, but may require some extra work. I will NOT ve re-packaging any of my mods for other managers, especialy not Nexus ones.
