So this article is in response to many requests I see on forums, chatroom, blogs and much more. This article will help guide you through Skyrims latest addition known as Hearthfire. Lets face it the DLC instructions are not informative at all, you start the game and wait. Wow thats Earth-shattering Information. *SARCASM*
First things first you are going to need to buy one of the three plots of land that are available, once you purchase the land you will be issued a title deed. Here are the locations
- Helijarchen Hall— which you can purchase in Dawnstar from the Jarl’s Steward. The land is located West of Blizzard Rest and south of Fort Dunstand, and will cost you 5,000 gold. Then you will have to use the drafting table to create your blueprints for the small house, don’t worry It gets much bigger! Once you have acquired the materials and went through all of your crafting options at the carpenters workbench you will see the next set of available options.
- Lakeview Manor— which you can purchase from the Jarls steward in Falkreath. The land is located North of Pinewatch. Like Helijarchen Hall this location will also cost 5,000 gold. It is unique to the other 2 building sites because it has the apiary(beehouse)
- Windstad Manor— which you can purchase from the Jarls steward in Morthal, and this building site is located South of High Gate Ruins. Now this site is unique from the other 2 building site because it features the fish Hatchery, and this site will also cost you 5,000 gold.
So after reading all of this information your probably asking “dK Which spit of land should I purchase?” Have no fear readers you can Buy all 3 building sites, thats right you can have all the benefits of each piece of land. So Now you have the locations of where to buy and where to find, onto the next stage…BUILDING.
- Set the foundation using the drafting table, and selecting the small house blueprints.
- Move to the Carpenter’s Workbench make sure you have the required Quarried Stone and Sawn Logs, aside from your starting materials stone and clay can be mined from nearby sources around your plot of land, but logs can only be purchased from a Saw Mill.
- Once you have completed the Small House more options will appear such as adding the Main Hall which consists of a cellar, dining hall, a back room, and 2 bedrooms upstairs.
- Now we move onto Wing construction, and no not wings you can fly with, not yet anyways.
- West Wing — Now the west wing contains either Enchanters Tower, More bedrooms, or the Greenhouse.
North Wing– The available options are Trophy Room, Storage Room, or Alchemy Laboratory
East Wing — Here your choices are Library, Armory, or a Kitchen
- Now after the main hall has been constructed you can choose to remodel your small house into the Entry Hall
Now I’m sure your probably wondering do I have to do all of this myself? The answer is simple, Yes! But if you act now and read further we will throw in your very own Steward!! Thats right readers they allow you to appoint a Steward to buy raw materials, and equip it with furnishings.
Followers can be appointed your House Steward. Housecarls can be appointed Steward and doesnt take away a valuable follower(I chose this option) now your probably asking yourself What else can the Shiny new Steward do? Well, your shiny new Steward can be used to purchase Bards, Carriage drivers, Cows, Chickens, and Horses. And help fend off any assaults or Raids on your home.
So im sure by now you are completely pumped up about the adoption sytem, and let me tell you.. I didnt find it that awesome, but others just may. Once your house is finished, the option to move in with your spouse or adopt a child is available. With the children after you adopt them you can give gifts, play games, or instruct them to do chores. There is also an option for the kids to keep pets.
The Children that can be adopted are:
- Lucia – Child found in begging near the Gildergreen in Whiterun.
- Blaise – Child found working as a stable boy at Katla’s Farm.
- Sofie – Child found selling flowers in Windhelm.
- Aleson – Child found working for the miners in Dawnstar.
- Samuel – Child from Honorhall Orphanage in Riften.
REMEMBER Occasionally the home will be infested by skeevers, Giants have been known to attack, and unsavory characters have been known to lurk around that must be dispatched.

So to continue coverage on Final Fantasy XIV, Here is the race information with pictures included. All information was gathered from their website finalfantasyxiv.com, and I will continue to bring you the latest coverage on this game as the information rolls in. Here are the Races and information on them.
Over the course of some one thousand years and three great migratory waves, the Hyur have come to be the most populous of the civilized races in Eorzea. Compared to the others, theirs is an average physique, both in terms of height and build. The Hyur champion personal freedom and liberty, and their espousal of an eclectic variety of languages and traditions is a legacy of their diverse heritage―as is their resulting lack of a unified cultural identity.
Though their presence in Eorzea is lesser than that of the other races, the Miqo’te are easily distinguished by their large, projecting ears and restless, feline tails. The ancestors of this line first made their way to the realm during the Age of Endless Frost in the Fifth Umbral Era, traversing frozen seas in pursuit of the wildlife upon which they subsisted. Instinctual territoriality causes many among them to lead solitary lifestyles. Males in particular are said to shy from contact with others.
The Elezen are a characteristically tall people, long of limb and slender of build. They are also possessed of a somewhat extended lifespan in comparison to the Hyur. The Elezen once claimed sole dominion over Eorzea, their presence predating that of the other races, and, as such, developed a heightened sense of honor and pride. In years past, the Hyur migration into Elezen lands sparked bitter conflict. At present, however, the mutual understanding reached between the two races allows them to work towards mutual peace and prosperity.
The Roegadyn are easily identified by their massive, muscular frames. They are descended from a maritime people that roamed the northern seas, though many of their ancestors turned their longships south to brave the crossing into Eorzean waters. Often considered a barbaric race, the fiercely competitive Roegadyn are also known for their compassion and unswerving loyalty. Many of the greatest warriors in history were born of Roegadyn stock.
The Lalafell are a folk both rotund and diminutive. Small by any race’s standards and possessed of a childlike countenance, it proves difficult for non-Lalafell to gauge an individual’s age with any degree of accuracy. Originally an agricultural people inhabiting the fertile islands of the south seas, they found their way to Eorzea via the burgeoning trade routes. Lalafell are welcoming of outsiders, and share prosperous relations with all of the other races of Eorzea.

Hey fans wish I had more to share with you in this article then what you are about to read but I dont. Heres what i know due to me missing PAX this year I have to go by everyone else. Fuse is W.I.P for those that dont know (work in progress) they released this.
Fuse is a four-player co-op game, but no other details have been announced. We’ll know for sure next week!
dont forget to check their Website at http://fusegame.com/ where you will see the countdown timer for launch.
With Skyrim’s latest game add-on, players can build their own home from the ground up. Beginning with a small, one room cabin in The Pale, Falkreath, or Hjaalmarch, players can eventually build a fully functioning home with more features than you could expect. In many ways, this house-building process is analogous to the evolution of Hearthfire’s development.
Wisnewski, an environmental artist for Skyrim, was inspired to expand upon the game’s housing options in large part because of his enthusiasm for Skyrim’s crafting systems. “It started as a small idea to expand on the crafting element of the game because alchemy, smithing and enchanting were things I was interested in when we were playtesting the game,” said Wisnewski.
Meanwhile Nesmith, a fan of the popular game Minecraft, wanted players to have more ways to create content in the game. “Being a fan of [Minecraft], I asked, ‘Why can’t I build things in our game?” I know by hearing this our readers are smiling and saying yeahhh! I know we have asked this question since the creation kit came out for PC. So seeing the fact that Bethesda is thinking like their fans is a huge breath of fresh air, and this will help Bethesda become even greater than what they are now.
In the new year, Kuhlmann and Wisnewski continued to flesh out ways players could trick out the houses they were building: a greenhouse for growing new alchemy ingredients, mannequin displays to show off weapons and armor, and even the ability to add multiple porches to the home. This will add the maximum amount of immersion to the already vast World of Skyrim. Also keep in mind that Home building should be exciting to have our own homes in the Game. It is kind of like mixing Minecraft, The Sims, and Skyrim all in one Game.
“We even were able to add a wine cellar!” Wisnewski stated with excitement. “Anything you can think of that you’d want to have in a Skyrim house is here.”
Like Wisnewski, Kuhlmann enthusiastically speaks about some of the content’s features. “I love the room with all the trophies that Robert made. He went a little nuts on that. The greenhouse is also cool, since you can grow plants inside your house, and little critters start to appear,” continued Kuhlmann, “You can also get a bard. You can hire him and have him sing songs in your house. That is, until you get tired of him and then you can fire him.”
With the introduction to the adoption system, this could carry over into the next chapter of Elder Scrolls, Could the Next Hero be the child of the Dovakihn? Speaking only for myself in this statement, I just realized how essential having an in-game spouse is, imagine having a steward and a home full of kids to take care of things while you go out and hunt and dragons, which is made way easier if you choose to side with the blades.
“The idea of adoption came to me after the Dark Brotherhood questline was presented,” Cornett recalled. “After first seeing the [Innocence Lost] questline, I asked, ‘what happens to the kids? What happens to the orphanage after the quest is completed?'” Hearthfire provides the opportunity to answer these questions, as the concept of adoption seemed a natural fit with the idea of creating a household. “Build your own house lets you make a house and adoption lets you make it a home,” explained Cornett.
The evolution of both house building and adoption through time has made Hearthfire a project the team is proud of. “The scope of Hearthfire blows me away. It’s one thing to say you’re going to add these things, and it’s another to see a small team build something that’s so complex and rigorous and have all those pieces, ” concluded Nesmith.
Stay tuned for more as it unfolds!
