Mod Stats:

###########################

Over 400 NPCs
Over 1000 new voice lines
40 quests.
A fully rebuilt and fully scripted Helgen to play in.

###########################################

IMPORTANT:
The mod starts the first time you enter Solitude and some quests
will not start until you have finished the following quests:
Diplomatic immunity, Dark Brotherhood Quest Line, Civil war quest
Line and The Horn of Jurgen Windcaller Quest.

Also because of Steam Workshops stupid file size limitations and upload
problems, Steam workshop may not always have the current version of
this mod. So always check the Engineering Guild Website directly if
you want to check what the latest version is.

Short
Introduction (Steam Friendly Version)

Return to Helgen kicks in once you enter Solitude for the first time. Before
you choose a side in the Civilwar, Helgen will appear as a functional
Imperial miltary outpost with shops, mines you can own, hunting
guilds and so forth. As you go through the Civl war quest line Helgen
watches and updates it self according to your choices.

So if you choose to be Stormcloaks, Helgen becomes a Stormcloak town, if
you chose the Empire, Helgen becomes an Imperial outpost. Regardless
of which side you chose, Helgen will allow you to join the local
garrison and do missions.

In this way Helgen will adapt to the game your playing act like a
support mod to other Civilwar mods that you may have installed
provided they do not edit the official Civilwar quests or Helgen.

If you chose join the Legion, at the end of the Civil War more quests
are in locked and you get to do missions for the Thalmor initially
and then for the Penitus Oculatus, the Emperors own agents. This
takes leads you deep in to the mods main quest which ends with you
becoming Emperor and going to war with the Thalmor.

Along the way you will be introduced to the game lore about the Thalmor and
Aldmeri Dominion, about the Knights of the Nine who star in this mod,
about Lorkhan the missing god, Tiber Septim, Shor and Ysmir.
Following the story of the Dragon Emperors as you rise to become one
your self.

Assassinations, politics, diplomacy, pitch battles and stealth all come in to play in
this mod.
Helgen is mod that triggers it's events to time them perfectly with Skyrim
official quests so things happen at the right time, in the right
place and in the right order. For example, you cannot be Emperor
until Titus Mede is dead and he will not stand down if you ask him
nicely either. You cannot go to war with the Thalmor until you finish
Skyrims existing Thalmor quests. Once those things are done, Helgen
will take the game you just experienced and expand upon it. Enhancing
your experience.

##############################################################
Important:
Using Matys Knights of the Nine Armour mod with Return to Helgen.

###############################################################

Maty743's
Knights of the Nine V2.6 Mod must be loaded AFTER Return to Helgen
for the armour trick to work. Providing that is done, NPCs from my
Helgen mod will appear to wear Armour from Matys Knights of the Nine
mod.

The trick works by creating a deliberate conflict between the 2 mods
using a fake set of armour in Return to Helgen that shares the same
path and file name as Matys REAL armour so if Matys real armour is
found, it replaces the fake armour and if its not found, the fake
armour shows up instead.

##############
Known Problems.
##############

There are no real problems affecting game play of this mod but there are
some things to be aware of.

Quests do not start from the start of the game any more. Bethesda removed
that working feature in the 1.7 patch and replaced it with a broken
SEQ file system that has never worked right. So all my quests start
using triggers instead. A lot of the early quests run from a trigger
that is centred over Helgens marketplace. Walking through the
marketplace starts the quests. After that you just talk to the
commanders assistant in Helgen for updates.

Do not use Resurrection spells during combat quests in any of my mods,
they are known to break the ISDEAD command used by my quests to count
the number of dead enemies. When an NPC dies and is resurrected, the
quests no longer recognise it as a quest NPC so the quest never ends.

Helgen V4 was corrupted during production by a mod clean I performed, whilst
I am expert modder and have heavily tested the mod and fixed every
corrupt item I came across, corruption tends to be random and is not
always easy to spot. So if pigs fly backwards or a Sheep asks you to
assassinate somebody, send me a bug report about it and I'll take a
look. Corruption causes random problems that should not be possible
normally.

From Version 2 some major changes to how this mod works have been
implemented to work around bugs in Skyrims script language. These
changes effect quests that rebuilt Helgen on timers mostly. They have
all been removed and quests that need them reworked to work without
them or deleted entirely. If you experience problems after updating,
you may need to reset the mod by loading your game once without the
mod loaded and save before reactivating this mod.

Tip for those using my mods, they are complex, never use console cheats, boss or clean them because you will break them and there is no fix.
