Choose the race of your npc.
There are multiple ways to begin your custom npc project. A method that I prefer is getting the look that I want in as few Creation Kit forms (records) as possible.
For example the very popular diva of the Nexus Sofia - The Funny Fully Voiced Follower has 2019 records. Did you know that you can have the same exact Sofia look on a follower with as little as 2 records? You can put the original Sofia and the Sofia with only 2 records side by side and they will look exactly the same!
I think that's awesome, because you can always build on it. You can watch your npc grow in your game as you make the npc more complex. You can control how far you will go without losing any game time with your creation.
It's a great way.. A great method to use for Skyrim npc and follower creation but a few of you maybe wondering "where do I start?" No problem that's where I come in. I've decided to start with choosing the race of your npc. Like I mentioned above there is no definite way to start creating but I figured starting at races will make this tutorial a better interactive experience and more fun.
One more thing, if you're not sure which race to create no worries just choose any from the selection below. This can always be changed later.
