* - This mod is not required if you just change a property in your Oblivion.ini file. Details on how do do so are in the Install section.

Sir Balin is dead yet still he lives. Find his journal and begin the journey to discover the life of Sir Balin. You must follow the clues left in his journals to find all the pieces to his armor. Only in the end will you be deemed worthy of Knighthood yourself.

To start the quest, go to the river bank that stretches towards Lake Poppod. There you will find the burned out remains of Sir Balin's home. The first journal awaits.

This mod has a slight tie-in to my Oblivion Web-Comic that I created and update pretty regularly. So, in order to not be totally left out, go here: http://unix.eng.ua.edu/~rhino/ and get yourself up to speed.
This mod has one dungeon just outside the borders of the normal game. Therefore, you must set the borders to 0 in your Oblivion.ini file (detailed instructions in installation section). This will not hurt your game or anything so don't worry :)
This is an adventure quest that will test your fighting abilities as well as mental. It is a quest of honor and should not be attempted by one with Infamy though, the means exist within the mod to take the Infamy away. You must find all 5 pieces of Sir Balin's armor, his sword, and shield. The mod also adds some other unique armor and weapons. This mod is mostly surrounding the story of Sir Balin's life, so reading will be necessary. Also, there are no quest logs or green/red triangles. You must do everything on your own. If you get stuck, go to the forums or email me at bchick222 at gmail dot com
The armor in the mod is close to the daedric stats in weight and protection. I feel the challenge to get it makes the power of the armor worth it. The weapons of Sir Balin do damage close to Umbra, where the weapons of The Marked match daedric.
Also, there are some... easter eggs of sorts. Some stuff put in for comic relief, others to add to the world I have created. If you find anything abnormal or have any questions about something you think might be an extra, head to the forums: http://septimspride.19.forumer.com/index.php

1. Download and install the mod 'Borderless Cyrodiil' at http://www.tessource.net/files/file.php?id=3578 -OR- Open up your Oblivion.ini file (located in -My DocumentsMy GamesOblivion- usually), search for the line entitled BorderRegionsEnabled and set it to 0
***This will NOT hurt your game or anything. All it does is take away the boundries Bethesda placed around Cyrodiil.
2. Copy files to (install folder)OblivionData
3. Files should include 1 .esp file, 1 .bsa file, and a folder entitled 'Videos'
that has a movie inside
4. Start Oblivion Launcher, click 'Data Files', place a checkmark beside the
.esp file(s).

1. Start Oblivion Launcher, click Data Files, uncheck the .esp file(s).
2. Delete the files/folders associated with the mod.
These include:
a. sir_balin_mod.esp
b. sir_balin_mod.bsa
c. OblivionDataVideoscredits_sirbalin.bik

If I release an update I will detail the instructions in it.

I have had no conflicts with any mods. However, if a mod adds a house in the exact place I put my dungeons and such, there will be problems. There's only one way to find out!

Known Issues or Bugs
The door leading to the Light Labyrinth from Cyrodiil is very picky. Sometimes the game won't let you click on it. However, no matter if the rest of the door is unclickable, the left edge of it always is. So, just point at the left edge until the door icon pops up and enter it that way.
Sometimes the boss of the Light Labyrinth won't show up. I have no idea why. Either reload a save or bring up the console, click on the exit door, and type unlock. Then hit enter and go through the door. You will have to do the same on the chest in the next room.
If you find any other bugs or issues, email me. Contact info is below.
