Got an update for this? If not then unfortunately this needs revoking.

Talked to Kaiel, this needs revoking for the moment. If nobody claims it by the time he comes back into the swing of things he'll pick it up again.

Upload for safekeeping, dirty. All NPCs for Fort Strand, Strand Mine, and Iron Man Tavern implemented. Strand Mine Lower Gallery is currently untouched, will do the quest in a separate ESP so as not to drag this claim on for too long. All trainers have been set up, only Ceryl, the apothecary, has had her wares set up.

Update, addressed most of the notes from discord, did not add superfluous my trade entries to those without them. Someone should investigate Cyrodiil_Main to determine why two imperial guards and one Ohmes miner did not get fallback entries

Another update! Cleaned a dirty cell and placeholder, fixed the guards using T_Cyr_Guards, which fixed the missing backgrounds, among other suggestions from Dev Shah. Ready for review.

Reviewing!

I like what you've done with the place. The interior is surprisingly big (not talking about the mine itself - I already knew about that one - but the Fort I mean), and there are a lot more NPCs then I thought there'd be, both of which are pleasant surprises. There are a few issues though.

-Someone in Particular doesn't give Euratta's full name (only "Euratta") and as a result it doesn't give the topic for her.

-Under Services "he offers healing an can teach you spells" - "an" should be "and".

-Under Someone in Particular "Matrav, the mine foreman lives in the room next to him." - should be "Matrav, the mine foreman, lives in the room next to him."

-None of the Bosmer have surnames here. Given the proximity of Valenwood it should be fairly common to see Bosmer with tribe names here (as is the case with Stirk and the rest of the Gold Coast currently). I'd give Denedal in the mines and one of the other Bosmer in/outside of the Fort a shared one. Feel free to make one up or to use one of the ones in Stirk, Anvil, or Brina Cross. My personal votes would be either Myrinath - the tribe name for Earmionre (commoner in Stirk), Nylaen - the tribe name for Ephra (disciple in the High Temple of Dibella, Anvil), or Ulansair - the tribe name for Filhallil (overseer of the Abecette's illegal arena, Anvil). Though those three are just suggestions and feel free to pick something else (or make a new one up entirely).

-I didn't see a single generic "Guard" in the Fort or Mine. Which is odd. More uniqueness I always appreciate but it goes against vanilla to have every guard of a single location (including forts) be named, unless they aren't mention to be official guards but hired on bodyguard-type of npcs (like in the Estates). I feel like some of those unique guards (as long as they aren't used for any of the quests) should be made generic, and possibly 2 or 3 more generic guards be added to fill some of the more empty areas.

EDIT: Forgot one. While you were gone, it was decided that settlements should have the Local Area and Local Economy lines of dialogue. Local Economy is... A bit much for a Fort (I'm not against it if you want to add one to Fort Strand but I really don't think it's necessary), but Local Area should be there probably just for completeness sake.

Fixed typos listed above, added some tribe names to the Bosmer of the fort, added a bartender to the basement bar in the general quarters, and gave him a unique greeting, and added an entry for local area. Since there are no generic legion guards atm, these will be added in section when they become available. File is clean.
