Can you Kill Maven Black Briar?
Hello all,

I wanted to know if it was possible to kill maven black briar and still be a thane of riverrun?

Or will killing her be breaking the game in a whole mess of ways?

I wouldn't try that if I were you. However, there's a great mod where you can get her (eventually) exiled. That was so very satisfying. It's aptly called - Destroy the Thieves Guild.

What does killing Maven have to do with being a thane of Riverrun ? Where does Riverrun lie ?
Maven is also required for quests from the thieves guild.

You can probably kill her safely after the Thieve's Guild questline is complete and the Civil War is finished in favor of the Stormcloaks ( total Imperial removal ). There are mods that will remove her ``essential'' tag to make it possible no matter where you are in the game quest wise.

He almost certainly meant Riften.

Actually, I would prefer to blackmail Maven. Would be more profitable.

If you dont mind ruining the Thieves Guild questline (I know I don't) you can use an .ini tweak to turn off essentail status from the game. Just turn it off, kill whoever you want the save and turn it back on.

I would prefer to remove all vice from Skyrim. Skooma, Ale, Wine, and Mead need to go. Clear heads shall prevail.
You can use console commands to make her unessential too.

This will break stuff.

Destroy the thieves guild is an awesome mod that should have had been in the vanilla game...

To the east of Casterly Rock, just south of The Neck past Walder Frey's birdge. Crownlands to the south and The Vale to the East.

Nope, if you kill her you won't be screwed with Riften. Instead, Dark Brotherhood may be after you to claim your life.

All vice?
Wow that's a term that could be applied liberally in Skyrim lol

Can you kill Maven Black-Briar? Yes, with the console or mods.
Should you kill Maven Black-Briar? Probably not.
