Description

Adds a school influenced by but not directly referencing Harry Potter’s Hogwarts to an island just north-east of Sadrith Mora. Adds numerous children and their teachers, along with unique dialogue, scripts, quests and objects. Fast travel is available to/from Sadrith Mora docks.

Installation

Extract the files into your Morrowind\Data Files directory, ensuring that all the icon, sound, mesh and texture files end up in their relevant folders.

It is strongly advised that you use a new savegame to avoid ‘doubling’ errors or other incompatibilities related to ‘dirty saves’ – which occur after adding, modifying or removing .esp files.

From the Morrowind Launcher, select Data Files and check the box next to the Sadrith Mora Academy Playable Children.esp file. Please remove any other versions of Sadrith Mora Academy to avoid conflicts.

Compatibility

This mod is not dependent upon Your Morrowind Family by Emma, however it is VERY STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that this file is used for maximum benefit as there is unique dialogue and interactivity designed for users of the Your Morrowind Family Mod. (http://lovkullen.net/Emma/index.htm). You can also download Playable Children and Children of Morrowind from the same location.

Users of Your Morrowind Family should leave the nanny at home and speak to the children once they are inside the castle walls of the Sadrith Mora Academy of Magecraft. When you are asked by the children to allow them to enrol, this will launch a script to facilitate the new dialogue. If you then speak to the Headmaster to enrol the children, you can then choose a House – either guided by the advice of the Sorting Cup – or simply through your own instincts. When one of your Your Morrowind Family charges is within the common room of each House, they will ask you if this is where they’ll be staying. A ‘yes’ answer will alter their responses from then on, as they will thereafter identify themselves as either Bangtail, Horntooth, Leatherhide or Loftwing.

For fans of Harry Potter, you may very broadly draw equivalency from Bangtail to Hufflepuff; Horntooth to Ravenclaw; Leatherhide to Gryffindor and Loftwing to Slytherin.

Having Sorted your children, you can continue on your adventures, content to know that your young charges are receiving the very highest standards of education. When you next visit them, why not ask them to follow you whilst you tour around the building? They will comment on each of the classrooms, fill you in on the latest classroom gossip – and even occasionally present you with their homework, or even a glass of sweetpulp beer…

Playable Children

If you are a child yourself, speak to the headmaster. If you don’t have much money, he’ll offer you a scholarship – otherwise it’s 2000 gold for the term. As soon as you are enrolled (or whenever you like after that), talk to him again to pick up the quests ‘Rings of Knowledge’ and ‘Werewolf in the Library’.

Another recommendation for this mod is the Daggerfall Music Packs by Zenogias (available at Morrowind Summit).

Bug Reporting/Known Issues
v1.1 fixes – Tunishi’s animation has been fixed; “tutor” class has been tweaked to make the teachers train the player in magical subjects. v1.2 lighting. v1.3 adds Rings of Knowledge quest and tuck shop. v1.4 makes further tweaks, fixes Globals and updates dependencies.
2.0 adds further quest, and improves banqueting hall, corridor and alteration classroom.
2.1 Updates the mod to use COM version 2, fixes the ownership issue on one banner, moves one of the rings to be easier to obtain, and puts shoes some some of the children (lost in update from COM v1) and reverts Elrihn’s Keep to original texture to repair missing texture glitch
The Sorting Cup may need clicking on a couple of times to Sort you, but the script DOES work, and has been tested numerous times.
The children in the sports hall might sit very still and suddenly jump up – this is the way the animation is set up, and at time of release, there isn’t any more satisfactory way of doing it that I’m aware of. Also, the children in the illusion classroom are SUPPOSED to be stock-still as they are practicing a paralyse spell.
The balancing child in the alteration classroom may behave strangely. He is supposed to be practising water walking. His script is supposed to get him to cast a water walking spell if you are close enough, and to reset his co-ordinates if he falls into the water. If he stutters on the spot (trying to reset the co-ordinates), try swimming through him – in the two instances in which that happened to me, he instantly cast the spell and began ‘balancing’ on water.
If I’ve accidentally left you off the credits list, please contact me immediately, with my apologies.
