The Windfall project is looking for additional modders.
What the mod is about: Windfall is a story-driven mod. The mod will feature over 40 quests spread across multiple storylines. A host of new content is being added including new armor sets, new dungeons and new factions vying for dominance in the city.
Background: Acretia was the love of both Brend and Stilus Varo. As two young dogs they followed her around wherever she went in Varo Manor. The two brothers tried to impress her as best as they could. Brend being the oldest and the strongest, tried to impress her by telling and re-enacting the knightly stories the bards told at dinner. Acretia enjoyed his attention as he was indeed the young and courteous knight from the stories. Stilus, being less then noble, took her out to town, amusing her with tales of the commoners lives and squabbles. While the brothers took turns at amusing her, Acretia, Stilus and Brend grew up. Partially fearing that accidents might happen and seeing an opportunity to restore the family fortune, Count Alconius Varo decided to put an end to it all. He arranged a marriage between Acretia and Brend. Soon after the wedding, Acretia started to miss the adventurous Stilus and she seeked him out when Brend wasn’t around. Stilus however, was less amused by her appearance, he didn’t want to have anything to do with his brothers wife. Feeling insulted by his rejection she told Brend that Stilus had assaulted her. In his rage Brend assembled several friends and plotted against his brother. The plot failed miserably. Stilus, having worked himself up in the local politics, had gotten notice and was prepared. His counter attack was an equal disaster, yet Brends friends enraged by such brutality, decided to seek Stilus out in the slums. They were caught by surprise, but the advantage of a lifetime of proper training and practice turns the tide soon after the fight started. What had started as a simple hit and run became a bloodbath. Count Alconius Varo, no longer able to ignore the strife between the brothers, decided to remove the apparent cause of all problems and exiled Stilus. When Count Varo died, Brend followed him up as rightful leader. Soon after problems stared to occur in the slums. Guards stopped their night patrols out of fear. Criminals started to show up in the area. An unknown figure then put an end to the crime in the slums, the people loved him for this. The crime didn’t stop though, the crime now focused on economical targets.
Briefly: South of Anvil sits Windfall Island. The once prosperous city of Windfall is ruled by the Varo Family, who settled there after being pushed out of the Cyrodiil – Hammerfell border when Tiber Septim consolidated his control of Cyrodiil. Upon the death of the beloved Count Alconis, the family and city fell upon hard times. The Count’s eldest son, Brend Varo, is a leader of questionable competence. The Count’s other son, Stilus, has been banished from the island. Brend’s arrogance has sparked a rebellion in Windfall’s Slums. The city’s thriving trade port and prosperous mines have been virtually shut down due to the problems originating from the slums. Only the arrival of a detachment from the Imperial Legion has kept the situation from deteriorating into a complete bloodbath. Despite the Legion’s presence each side continues to look for ways to gain the upper hand and solidify its control of Windfall. Will you help the rightful ruler, Brend Varo, put down the rebellion and restore peace to the City? Or will you help the peasants overthrow the oppressive ruler and liberate the city? The choice is yours. And what of the rest of the island and its inhabitants? Do they care, are there outside forces involved in Windfall’s problems, or do they have their own problems to deal with? The Varo’s are relative newcomers to the island. Is there a reason they never expanded influence over the entire island?

Well, it seems my surrent mod project is on hold till summer (aka. freedom), so I might be able to contribute. I can do some writings for you. I know how to do interior decorating too, but I don't actually have much experience with it (read: any). I can do it if you really need it, but it might take me a while and not look as good as more experienced people's.

How long depends on decorating at this point. I would say end of year at the earliest. Early next year is more realistic. But you never know, a couple of key modders and it could be six months. Size - it will be large, but it is hard to say. Base on current size and current expectations, approximately 70 - 80 megs complete. But that could change drastically depending on textures. They usually take the bulk of the space.
chances are you wont need me but ill be happy to make a trailer for you
