The opening scene of Skyrim is pretty iconic. You wake up to find yourself bundled into the back of a cart headed for Helgen – and your execution – alongside rebel leader Ulfric Stormcloak and fellow prisoner Ralof of Riverwood. Earlier this year, one fan even recreated it as a text-based RPG in dating app Tinder. Now, another fan has recreated it in another medium – as a pillow. Ready to greet you as you awaken.
For many Elder Scrolls fans, the series essentially begins with Morrowind. But there are two massive, sprawling procedural worlds that preceded it, and Daggerfall in particular introduced of Tamriel’s most important lore. If that game’s often-fiddly old-school role-playing was too much for you to deal with, and you’re not already occupied with some of the other best Skyrim mods, a new mod transplants Daggerfall’s main story into Skyrim.
Skyrim has a lot of dragons, and it has a lot of you learning dragon language so you can yell at them. But it doesn’t give dragons very many opportunities to talk to you. One modder thinks that’s a bit weird given that dragons are intelligent creatures fully capable of common speech, so now there’s a mod to make dragons chattier. There’s something for all occasions among the best Skyrim mods, after all.
Ever wondered what Bethesda’s mighty and magnificent RPG Skyrim might look like if given an Old School Runescape-style visual overhaul? Now you don’t have to – one creator has released a mod that reduces the textures of Tamriel’s land of the Nords to 1×1 files, giving it Old School-esque simplified visuals – and it apparently helps improve performance, too.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is an extremely modern RPG, despite being nearly eight years old, and while that’s helped it attain extreme mainstream success, it’s lost the lengthy, intricate NPC dialog that makes games like Baldur’s Gate so memorable. If you haven’t already spent enough time with the best Skyrim mods, a fresh mod full of old-school RPG dialog is here to add new depth to your next playthrough.
If you’ve had a few too many Skyrim playthroughs break down when you get bored of crafting endless daggers to boost your smithing skill, you might be interested in a new challenge with an entirely new sort of skill-building. The Apprenticeship mod gives you exactly that, by forcing you to seek out skill trainers when you want to get stronger.
Skyrim has a lot of things going for it, even now these eight years after it first came out. But its combat animations have never been particularly inspiring. Plenty of modders have put their skills to use addressing this issue, but this new mod adds some extra pizazz by adding to rather than simply changing vanilla Skyrim’s animation set.
In the eight years (!) since The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim came out, mod makers have been hard at work transforming the game. We’ve had grand new areas and adventures created entirely from scratch, multiplayer expansions for co-op dragonslaying, and even GPS trackers for those elusive companions. Beyond that, seemingly every part of the game has been remastered, from the flowers to the weather to the entire look of the game.
Beyond Skyrim, a mod aiming to bring the entire nation of Tamriel to life within The Elder Scrolls V, seems to be coming along nicely. In a new teaser trailer, released earlier this month, the team offered fans their best look yet at the Imperial nation of Cyrodiil.
