Updates

[+] 04/29/2022 - [v1.1, Optional File Addition] Added a no stubble option for the human male, since the goatee stubble cannot be added or removed in Character Creation. Be sure to pick one "hm_cps_p08.mor" or rename accordingly to keep both.

[+] 04/28/2022 - [v1.0, Optional File] Four Blood Mage inspired MOP files for Presets. For Humans and Elves, male and female. Assigned at Preset 8 (in case you have other existing presets). All Blood Mages have the t1_skn_ded skin tone and pn_eye_drka_0d eye texture, to give a similar look to the Blood Mages in this mod. Tattoos are assigned but can be removed and tmp7704's Tucked Hair Mod hair has been used (see media).

[+] 03/29/2022 - [v1.2, Additions] Now more redressed Mages, Witches, Cultist Mages, Elven Mages/Healers, etc. Including Cultist Overseer (the Arcane Warrior) based on my main's MOR and redressed to look like a Dragoness Enchantress. Now requires my mod resource pack: Resources for Certain Interested Parties and Viva la Orlais and Ferelden Pack - Clothing (Light Load) files.

[+] 03/29/2022 - [v1.1, Additions] Now includes the replacements for Reaper's Vestments --> Robes of the Champion model and recolour of Robe of the Witch (bright blue --> dark green) (see media).

Description
************
Something wicked this way comes...

See just how dark and dismal life is like with the Circle of Magi and the even darker alternative of becoming a blood mage. Clothing replacements, morph makeovers, redressings—with recolours and DA2 models for the Circle of Magi mages and tranquil, as well as blood mages and Maleficar. Inconspicuous mages are more inconspicuous—like the Liaison for the Mages' Collective. Some mage Travelers and Mages have been left untouched like the Traveler/Qunari Mages for those who use tmp7704's Qunari Update and Tevinter Mage and Soldiers for those who use Tevinter Nights

This is the first segment of an ongoing project "Dark Ferelden" a darker and more brutal revision of Ferelden. You can expect updates and additions, I'll try to have detailed file indexing, and ideally there will be eventual a full game overhaul—but as a long term on going project. Types of things you will notice:

  • More attractive morphs, but more ambient/unnamed and few minor characters to minimize overlap of those who already have preferred morphs for their game.
  • Blood mages look more nefarious including some will have full black eyes and very pale skin, this is an indication they have killed or sacrificed the innocent. The corruption is spreading and demons are clawing from the other side of these blood mages' void black eyes. Some blood mages even cover or paint their faces to look more intimidating.
  • Tranquil and sometimes even mages look more like Chantry property wearing the Chantry's Robes. 

Includes:

Recolours:

Replacements:

Redressings: 
  • Irving has a Malcolm's Honor model staff equipped
  • Elf male apprentices from Apprentice Robes --> Cumberland Circle Robes model
  • Human male apprentices from Apprentice Robes --> Aequitarian's Robe model
  • The Last Request's Blood Mages Tevinter Mage Robes/Tevinter Robes to Archon Robes/Enchanter Cowl (see Replacements)
  • Thy Brother's Killer's Maleficarum from Chasind Robes and Enchanter Cowl --> Garb of the Maleficar and Mask of the Maleficar
  • The Cultist Overseer  (the Arcane Warrior) changed to female, my main's MOR and redressed to look like a Dragoness Enchantress. (v1.2 Update)
  • Witches (from Mages just labeled as Witches, to non-Circle Mages relabeled Witches), including Leliana's Assassin Witch, Howe's Mages now Witches, Mercenary Witches/Mages, etc. (v1.2 Update)
  • Non-Dalish Elven Mages (in Orzammar, Proving and Cara Hideout), are redressed to look more Elven/less Tevinter. (v1.2 Update)

Recoloured Items Created for Redressing:

Morphs:
  • Uldred only for the Harrowing Chamber (black eyes added)
  • Various unnamed apprentices during Magi Origin and blood mages during Broken Circle.
  • Named but minor characters: Jowan, Owain, Niall and Mouse.

Disclaimer
************
I know some people like to do their own morphs especially for named characters—so most morphs are ambient unnamed characters. Files are indexed so finding files to delete—if cherry picking—should be fairly easy. Some aspects of the mod will automatically update others will require a first time loading into the area.
