You don’t get too many opportunities to quest with the Vigilants of Stendarr in Skyrim, but that’s all about to change. Someone has put together a Skyrim mod that’s all about rebuilding the Hall of the Vigilant following the vampire attack on the Vigil of Stendarr, recruiting Vigilants to aid the effort, and defending your labour from the vampires who wrecked everything in the first place.
Jkrojmal’s Stendarr Rising – The Hall of the Vigilant Rebuild mod tasks you with collecting materials to restore the hall. You can purchase them from the carpenter’s workbench that’s in a nearby shed. Don’t fret about costs, though, as additional iron, silver, and clay deposits have been added to the area to help you out. You can also purchase things like lumber from sawmills and glass and straw from the Riverwood trader.
You can recruit up to eight Vigilants to aid in your restoration efforts. Some of them will guard the gates around the clock and patrol the perimeter, and others fill roles such as trainers or followers. You can also get two armoured huskies and a horse from the workbench.
Things do, however, get challenging when you repair the door to the hall. Once you hit that point, vampires and werewolves will get wind of what you’re up to and try to raid the village in the dead of night. Attack frequency and strength is random and will occur between midnight and dawn.
The experience is also customisable. You can tweak the creatures’ attack strength and frequency or disable it if you’d prefer that. Jkrojmal suggests using the Timing is Everything, Better Start Timing for Dawnguard and Dragonborn, or Dawnguard – Hall of Vigilant Requirement mods with this one to control when Dawnguard starts.
