Oblivion House Mod Hunters – Episode Ten

Today for Oblivion House Mod Hunters, we’re taking a look at three mage-themed housing mods with lots of magical features that should prove ideal for any wizard, warlock or sorcerer! Study the arts atop your flying fortress as you grow your magical powers, hide away in an eccentric cottage buried in your scrolls, or partner up with a High-Elf roommate in your own small manse along the Niben! There’s all of this and more in the tenth episode of Oblivion House Mod Hunters!

Oblivion House Mod Hunters – Episode One

Oblivion House Mod Hunters is a series dedicated to showing off three random house mods for Oblivion each week in three different categories (Popular, New and Underrated), with the goal of showing off the features, locations, and styles that each house provides. Since almost everyone needs a house mod of some sort for their characters, and with a few thousand house mods out there for Oblivion, it’s easy to miss a cool house mod that you may well enjoy, so my hope is that with this series, we’ll be able to spotlight some house mods that you may not have considered before while also making it easier for you to decide on a house mod for your own play-through of Oblivion.

In this first episode, we’re taking a look at the extremely popular Red Rose Manor mod by Emma, the new house mod Lone Wolf Cottage by ex-Morrowind modder Srdjan Pokorni (Spokorni), and the underrated Bond’s Skyship mod by Bond.
