Serana’s Tomb Blood Curse

From Skyrim Nexus Latest Files

This mod afflicts the player with a severe disease when they try to releasing Serana, when the player is not a vampire (or werewolf).

At a certain point during the Awakening quest in the dawnguard questline, you’ll come across Serana’s tomb in Dimhollow Crypt.

When you activate the button of her sarcophagus, causing your hand to be impaled. Yet, in Vanilla, this has no consequences. So I decided to add one: “the Corrupted Blood Curse”.

As Serana is arguably the most important “vampire artifact” to the Volkihar Clan, I thought it would make sense for them to add some measures to prevent mere mortals from getting access to her.

The Corrupted Blood Curse is inspired by the Decaying status effect from Divinity: Original Sin 2 and has similar effects: You will no longer regen health and healing spells and items will cause damage instead.

For compatibility issues, when the player is a werewolf, they will also be immune to the Curse.

If you contract the Curse and become a vampire or werewolf later on, the Curse will be removed as well.

It can be cured like any disease in Vanilla, though. (Potion of Cure Disease or praying at a shrine)

More information on the DOS2 inspiration:

In the Decrepit Ruins, you’ll meet a Magister that have been afflicted with a “blood curse” after trying to open a cursed lever, without any knowledge of what their dealing with.

I felt like the player (when being a non-vampire) is in a similar situation when pressing the button on Serana’s Sarcophagus: meddling in affairs above their head.
