Ah here we are a year later, minor updates here and there but you know… DC has been missing a few things and I’ve hemmed and hawed about updated changes because “ehmergerd limited space.” I’ve long wanted to bring my Market’s “Sweet Dreams Bakery” to DC for some time and now I have the excuse. I’ve also wanted more custom voice acting, more interactions and more things to do… so here are the changes incoming:
You will NOT need a new game for this update. Hoo-ray. This update features the winners of September’s Charity Drive which benefitted orphans. Thank you very much for your donations. Each month a new charity is selected so we can make more corners of the world shine brighter.
[ ] Hannestre’s Bakery is OPEN! You will be able to buy special delights located in Solitude. The Bakery features Hannestre selling:
-Jazbay Macaroons – loved by the mages, this delightfully airy macaroon has magicka restorative properties.
-Candied Apples – a beloved treat during the Witche’s Festival, this hearty concoction has endurance restorative properties.
-Cocoa Cream Biscuit – a full flavoured treat perfect with tea or coffee, this biscuit fortifies one’s health and can put a smile on the most dour of faces
-Citrus Sponge Cake – with seasonal fruit nestled in an cocoon of cream and love, this delicious cake has health regenerative properties.
– Coffee and Tea
Players will now be able to make their own coffee and tea. Purchase the teapot or coffee percolator from Hannestre to take with you. All you need are some coffee beans or tea leaves and water. Simply talk to any innkeeper around Skyrim for drinking water and pull up your coffee percolator or teapot via your armour menu and voila! Now you can be toasty warm anywhere you are.
[ ] Stritchgor the Mighty – an Orc Merchant that features billy clubs for fighting and proper armour for defending.

[ ] Rikki Hliattð – Nord Follower. He specialises in both two-handed and sword and board techniques.

His poultices can make the worst cough calm and his elixirs are known to calm the nervous of nellies. Inspired by MadMax
[ ] Arya Tir’nae is a Breton arcane warrior who left Cyrodil to find new ways to channel magic. While no one would confuse the Nords as being magic-centric, there are still secrets to uncover in the world.

[ ] Nixeleth and Sileveth – Bosmeri sisters who are hell-bent on having fun.

[ ] Travelers on the road – you will find families travelling to and fro on the roads outside of the aforementioned merchants. These are men, women and sometimes their children, who are looking for a new life somewhere else or visiting family. Roads feel a lot more travelled on! Inspired by Keldir Zketraa
[ ]Way Stations – There are new Way Stations across Skyrim. They are small inns that allow you to rest up and you’ll find various people wandering to and from them to other locations.
– Haaflinger south of Forth Hraggstad is Hraggstad Way Station
– The Reach – West of Kolskeggr Mine is the Kolskeggr Way Station and south of Old Hroldan and between Gloomreach is Hroldan Way Station
Whiterun – West of the Western Watchtower and south of Sleeping Tree Camp is the Western Tree Way Station. Eldergleam Sanctuary now has a little post outside of it where travelling merchants come to sit down and spin a tale or two.
Eastmarch – Traitor’s Post has been cleared out and rebuilt. The bandits were a bit cranky but found themselves a little camp further down. You’re free to dispatch them and loot their lootings

[ ] Whiterun’s “graveyard” area has been updated to reveal who is being remembered. Because there’s a hall of the dead I decided to remove the gravestones that peppered into the neighbouring yards- there’s really no reason for it. Instead, you will find a memorial plaque along the HoD outside walls
[ ] Homes are now more interactive with added goodies to be found

[ ] Updated vendor inventories for a more varied selection including unique and randomly named items
[ ] Villages will also see more items in the various homes and shoppes.
