Kawa-Beasts

More humanoid Khajiits and Argonians, made to look ‘cuter’ than their vanilla counterparts.

DESCRIPTION

“Hailing from the province of Elsweyr, they are intelligent, quick, and agile. They make excellent thieves due to their natural agility and unmatched acrobatics skill. All Kawa-Khajiit can see in the dark…”

“This reptilian race, well-suited for the treacherous swamps of their homeland, has developed natural immunities to diseases and poisons. They can breathe water and are good at picking locks…”

This was a request from a friend of mine that ended up being expanded upon to include more eye colours and 3 more fur variations. Recently I decided to join it with a side project, my Kawargonians. Now you can add the Kawa-Khajiit, the Kawargonians, or both!

The base version (main file) supports HGEC for females and RM for males. There is no vanilla support, because really, who still uses the vanilla bodies?

This is NOT a race-replacer. The four races are separate and will NOT interfere with the original Khajiit race in any way. A replacer for both will be made in the future.

Both races and their variations share their base stats, powers and abilities with their vanilla counterparts:

This race has a unique set of eyes based off idkrrr’s Corean eye texture, and are available as normal or glow versions. There are 20 eye choices in total.

There is a wide variety of hair choices for this race: 19 hairs from Ren’s Beauty Pack, 56 hairs by idkrrr (from the Corean, Saram and Sul Hwa races), 14 hairs from KumaKumaKokuma’s Lop Ears Elf race, 20 hairs from HISSSA’s hair pack, 26 hairs from the 2CH Hair Explosion set (Pr-ttyCure), 8 hairs converted from The Sims 2 by Sulpyun, 5 hairs by VanillaBeans, 7 hairs by RAN and 6 hairs converted from The Sims 2 by Fallen20 for a total of 161 hair choices. All hair is available for use by males and females.

    Finally tracked down one of my favorite mod authors after all those years!

    I absolutely adore the work you have done for this ol’ game, Ani, and i am happy to see you actually have a site with even more mods that i haven’t found before.

    I first saw your work when i stumbled across a mod called “desuchan’s kawa-khajiits”, which gave me the widest jaw drop i have ever experienced.
    It was the first mod i’ve found to have characters with decent, well-made faces, that didn’t look like irradiated mutant potatoes, and i was plenty happy about it for a good while, got a kawa-khajiit character over level 100, lived a happy life as the new sheogorath and became the arena grand champion quicker than Owyn can say “lop your arms off”.

    So, i’ll be fetching this updated version of kawa-khajiits, now with 50% natural argonian flavor, install a fresh copy of Oblivion and have a blast again, so thank you very much! 🙂
