III. Installing:

DISCLAIMER: REMOVE YOUR ITEMS FROM THE TOWER BEFORE UPDATING
Otherwise they WILL disappear.

I won't take any responsibility over lost items et cetera.

Make sure you have uninstalled ANY previous versions, they WILL conflict.

Unpack the MountainTower.esp and the Meshes and Textures folders to the Oblivion\Data folder in your Oblivion installation directory, default:

C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\Data

Then load up Oblivion, select data files and enable MountainTower.esp and you're done!


IV. Uninstalling:

DISCLAIMER: REMOVE YOUR ITEMS FROM THE TOWER BEFORE UNINSTALLING

Otherwise they WILL disappear.
I won't take any responsibility over lost items et cetera.

In version 5 (This version you have downloaded) uninstalling is very simple and takes only three steps to complete:

1. Deactivate MountainTower.esp in the laucher\data files.
2. Go to data\textures, remove the folder labeled MountainTower.
3. Go to data\meshes, remove the folder labeled MountainTower.

You're done!


V. How to get to the tower:

Go to the Imperial City, the Arcane University district. Enter the Arch-Mage's tower lobby. When there, search for the chest labeled 'Incoming Mail' and you'll find a book and a key.

The book will teach you a spell that allows you to teleport yourself to the tower entrance, and the key will open the arcane gateway from the Pale Pass side.

VI. What does the tower offer?

The tower is designed for magi characters, but it's well suited for any character type. It has a meditation chamber with some secrets you'll have (hopefully) fun time reading up.

The tower has a fully decked out alchemy lab with ingredient sorting (use the scales on the table to sort your ingredients), static alchemy (just activate any apparati on the table to use it), an enchanting chamber, a library to store your books in, a bedroom with a spellmaking stand, a roof-top ingredient garden of sorts and a private tropical relaxation spot in the basement.

And more! Play it to find out!

It's located in Pale Pass, and your neighbours consist mostly of ogres, so you'll be sure to have some peace and quiet. I can guarantee those beasts can beat up any daedra who might think it's a good idea to come disturb you.

Enjoy!

~Sage Rime~
