1) DETAILED DESCRIPTION (for new users)

I wanted a mod to re-balance Dragon encounters to a tougher difficulty, according to lore. For me Dragons must be scarier and superlative monsters. They are the incarnation of myth! Not anymore Dragons leveled for 1st level or low level players.

So, now:

- Dragons are very powerful respect of vanilla version.
- Dragons have new resistences and weaknesses, depending by their nature. The knowledge of strenght and weakness points of these fantastic enemies are fundamental for your strategies and your victory (or death).
- Dragon breath is really tremendous. The breath is related to Dragon age so… older Dragons have deadly breaths.
- Dragon’s elemental attacks (i.e. fireball or icestorm) are true deadly. They are also related to Dragon age but have different effects from Dragon breath.
- Dragon bite is devastating. Stay away from the jaws of the dragon, because they are his physical attack more lethal.
- Dragon quests (“going to kill the boss”) now are really challenging, they aren’t no longer a simple picnic (with Dragon meat).
- Dragon tail may knockdown you. Stay away from Dragon tail!
- Dragon in (only) Super Mighty (a bit) and Nightmare (more) versions regen health in combat. Slighty Mighty Dragons (versions) don’t regen health in combat.
- Dragon have a (bit) improved AI respect vanilla game. There are two type of behaviour = Magic Dragon behaviour and Melee Dragon behaviour.
- Each Dragon, according to his nature, type and age have a particular set of shouts to use in battle!
- Each Dragon, according to his nature, type and age have a particular texture created by better Artists on Nexus (Luddeman, Bellyaches, LoganGFX and Flaincau).
- Dragons have a proper name (lore friendly) in relation to their age (level) and nature.
- Alduin is really the world eater, a semigod of incredible powers.
- Low level NPCs (from 1 to 9 level) have fear of Dragons and flee away. Stop with annoying and unrealistic massacres of people. Guards and followers don’t go away and stay to fight the monster.
- Each Dragon is more characterized and the Dragonborn need to know him very well before engaging a battle!
- Finally, when you see a Dragon you should hide yourself and spying the situation before choosing beetween attack or go away! Low (and just medium) level players (from 1th to 12-15th level) are warned!

- (OPTIONAL) As the Dragons, also Dragon Priests have became very hard enemies.
- (OPTIONAL) In some secret (in game) locations you will find the Dovah Holy Book, a secret book written by Ancestor for the Dragonborn.
- (OPTIONAL) You may have a new Odahviing, that become a really useful ally for the Dragonborn.
- (OPTIONAL) You may have a new Durnehviir, that become a really useful ally for the Dragonborn.
- (OPTIONAL) Reduced Dragon Respawn rate.
- (OPTIONAL) A lot of vendors, trainers and quest-related NPCs are protected = killable only by player. So they are safe by Dragon’s fury.

2) SHORT DESCRIPTION (for ex Mighty Dragons users and ERSO users)

This is an enhanced version of the (ex) Mighty Dragons. Enhanced Mighty Dragons have better resistances (specially armor) and a lot of new shouts/powers respect to “old” Mighty Dragons. I strongly suggest you to try this new mod, because the game experience may be quite different. ;)

If you are playing with old Mighty Dragons or ERSO modules, simply use this installer and overwrite the contents, when asked. Enjoy!

This mod is fully compatible with these Dragon mods:

This mod is compatible by creating a bash patch (using WRYE BASH) with:
- Deadly Dragons

This mod is fully compatible with Skyrim Redone by T3nd0 (aka Skyre)

This mod is fully compatible with Dragon Combat Overhaul, but you have to load EMD before DCO.
