Complete "Enderal: Forgotten Stories" for Skyrim SE.
Enderal: Forgotten Stories is a total conversion for TES V: Skyrim: a game modification that is set in its own world with its own landscape, lore and story. It offers an immersive open world, all for the player to explore, overhauled skill systems and gameplay mechanics and a dark, psychological storyline with believable characters.

Enderal is free and can be played by anyone owning a legal copy of TES V: Skyrim Special Edition. It was developed non-commercially by SureAI, the team behind the renowned Oblivion mod Nehrim: At Fate’s Edge (and various other projects), and later independently converted and maintained on the Skyrim SE engine by Eddoursul with help from other community members, most notably gavrant and overdev. See Credits for the full list of contributors.

Recommended optionals
Always assume a Skyrim mod is incompatible until proven otherwise.
Enderal LE mods must be converted before using. At this point, all scripted mods for Enderal LE are considered out of date (incompatible).

LOOT does not work with Enderal due to unmaintained masterlist. Effectively, it randomizes your modlist.
Vortex probably works but is unsupported, use it at your own risk.
Remember to never use old Enderal mode in modding tools. Always choose Enderal SE (if available) or Skyrim SE mode.

Mod Organizer 2 supports Enderal SE as of version 2.4.1.
For the Steam version, use the Enderal Special Edition (NOT Enderal) mode.

To mod Enderal SE, installed as a mod, use the Skyrim Special Edition mode and enable Enderal downloads in settings:
