The goal of the project is to make the rewards from the Dragonborn DLC quest Untold Legends more useful.

In the original add-on, you can only

choose between one of the following powers:

The mod gives you customization options for each power and the summoned entities, be it for example the duration of the powers, the equipment of both Dremora or the buffs of the Spectral Drum. If you obtained one reward, you can craft all three rewards. So it’s no longer necessary to return to Solstheim in order to read the book when you want to choose another power. I never understand why they didn’t give you all three powers at once from the beginning.

Update of June 14, 2022

I will add a music player function the Spectral Drum with several playlists like combat, explore or dungeon.

The story behind the project

The project began as an add-on to my first public Skyrim mod Spawn Enemy and Summon Merchant. Then I decided to make the new mod stand-alone. Initially, it only tweaked the Dremora Merchant (making his merchant gold customizable, a few bug fixes, some adjustments to his face). During the development he got more options like a combat mode and different equipment sets.

A lot later, I got the idea to improve the Dremora Butler, too, as they share the same summoning script and I need to make sure that his summoning spell still works after my changes to the summoning script. The Dremora Butler will mostly get the improvements which I did to the Dremora Merchant plus customizable carrying capacity. A user suggested to give the Spectral Drum additional effects like giving the party increased magic and damage resistance or bleeding damage which I had taken over.
