Q: What is this?
A: This mod is a major content and visual overhaul/expansion to the original concept developed by pchs from 2014 (Sex Slaves for Vanilla Bandit Camps) whereby Bandit gangs have taken female NPCs from various backgrounds in Skyrim prisoner. This mod does not require its conceptual predecessor in any way, and may even be run alongside it independently if desired. This is not designed to be a new slave mod, though it may be used that way. It can be just a simple "rescue the girls" campaign, if that's how the user wants to play it. Or a slave collection / harem builder . . . or a TDF prostitution source . . . or a potential follower source . . . or anything in between/combination thereof.
Q: Is it worth it?
A: "I have in the past described (to those who have asked) the difference between this mod and the original pchs mod as the difference between looking at a picture of Disney World VS actually going to Disney World." - Corsayr
Q: Can I make the Captives naked? [Added 19OCT18]
A: For Naked Captives, Console: "Set pchsCaptiveClothes to 2" ?
*Note: This will only function if set before the Captive placement phase. Otherwise it will have no effect on an existing game.
Q: Is there be a version for KS Hair and/or CBBE outfits?
A: Yes, they are included in the installer.
Q: Will there be a version with male Captives?
A: Due to the volume of gender specific dialogue (there are literally
hundreds thousands of lines) doing so would be a prohibitive time sump to accommodate a minority of users (as is the case with many LL mods). Converting the characters wouldn't be difficult; rewriting all of the dialogue would and I think the time would be better spent improving depth on the female-centric mod.
Q: Will other races be added?
A: Currently all Skyrim vanilla races are represented except the Khajiit and Argonians. If it won't be done well, I probably won't do it . . . and to do particularly the Khajiit well I would need to have Khajiit specific dialogue at every stage because of the different language syntax employed. Then I would have to have a blocking Boolean statement in most other dialogue branches to ensure the Khajiit one is selected. The juice probably isn't worth the squeeze. But it might be interesting nonetheless so I'll leave the door open.
Q: Does the mod add NPCs to bandit camps only or do other factions like the forsworn also have them?
A: It's not called "Sexy Forsworn Captives." Given the developing story around the nature of the restraints and the Bandits (already written in the Captives' greeting dialogue) and the economic basis (pleasure slaves for sale), the principal points of this mod aren't a good fit for the other non-Bandit factions of Skyrim. i.e., Rogue mages, Forsworn, Vampires, etc. But, those are fine candidates for a follow-on mod for all or each of them using this mod in a more well developed state as a starting point.
Q: Will this eventually be fused into one file for download or hosted on MEGA?
A: Maybe, but not anytime soon. Perhaps eventually, but while I'm pushing frequent updates, adding another pathway on a different website to update would just slow me down for very little added benefit. It would allow me a larger file size so these wouldn't be fractured, and that's the only reason I would consider it. It would also ease the use of mod managers.
