Steam description:

Please read at least the GENERAL INFORMATION and the TROUBLESHOOTING before posting about an issue or CTD. On the comments, I won't reply to "It won't work" comments without explaining at least when it crashes (on Skyrim logo, loading a game, entering the house...).


GENERAL INFORMATION:

This mod replaces the two vanilla female bards added by DLC Heartfire that can be hired when you build the houses: Oriella (Heljarchen Hall) and Sonir (Windstad Manor). Requires Heartfire DLC only. I create this for myself, so if you don't like it, ignore this mod.

It is a good idea to save your game away from both houses before installing to avoid CTD, if you already hire them. If you didn't hire them yet, just install and you should be fine.


COMPATIBILITY: 
Incompatible with mods that alter Oriella and Sonir face and body meshes and textures (beautification mods that affect heartire NPC). To work with NPC overhauls that changes those two hireable bards, just place it in load order after any NPC overhaul (see troubleshooting below if you can't make it work).

TROUBLESHOOTING & QUESTIONS: 

Problem: Their faces didn't change.
Answer: Probably you are already using a mod that changes their appearence. Make sure you don't have these loose files in the folder 

Skyrim\Data\Meshes\Actors\Character\FaceGen\HeartFires.esm\ 
00019630.nif
00019631.nif

and in the folder 

Skyrim\Data\textures\Actors\character\FaceGenData\FaceTint\HearthFires.esm\
00019630.dds
00019631.dds

if you have them, rename all to something like old_00019630.nif or backup_00019631.nif to avoid conflicts, since loose files always have priority above files packed in .BSA files;

Question: What about an overhaul to Llewellyn the Nightingale?
Answer: Nothing planned.
