Explore Skyrim

An elderly adventurer/explore can help you find places you have overlooked. Talk to Darian in the Sleeping Giant Inn.

Are you looking for something to do in Skyrim? Are you tired of Radiant Quests? Perhaps you are grinding for levels? There may still be places you haven’t explored. Darian can help. Talk to him at the Sleeping Giant Inn in Riverwood. He can suggest a place to travel where the map marker is not visible. Traveling to the location will complete the quest. If you discover the location and the map marker becomes visible, he won’t suggest that location again. If you don’t like the suggestion, he gave you, talk to him to abandon the quest and then talk to him again and he will try to suggest another. The quest is repeatable.

If Darian does not have a suggestion for you and you think he should, try leaving the Inn and coming back in through the door and talk to him.

If you subscribe to a mod that has new map markers, Darian may suggest them.

At this time, Darian will suggest map markers with MapMarkerRefType with the exception that a few markers that have been filtered out. For example, there are markers in Hearthfire that are blocked from being discovered. So, I found it really annoying to have him suggest them.

In vanilla Skyrim, Darian is programmed to suggest all except The Left Hand Mine. This marker has a different Location Reference Type to allow it to be disabled during an event. I plan on adding the ability for Darian to suggest this marker specifically in an update.

There are a number of markers in Dawnguard that he won’t suggest and also I have noticed that a few mods I have tried have markers that he won’t suggest. This is because these markers do not have MapMarkerRefType.

The mod currently does not take into account the player’s level or the distance from previously explored areas. So, it probably makes more sense to use this when the character is able to travel to most places.

If you are having problems with the mod, try unsubscribing and then starting the game. Save your game with your character outside of the Sleeping Giant Inn. Then exit and subscribe again.

Is this still up to date?

It looks like that is location in the Sea of Ghosts mod. If you do unsubscribe from that Mod, I think the problem will go away. I played it and then unsubscribed when finished.

Really good and usefull mod.
But I do have a problem: Darian tells me to go to a place i have already visited but I can't go there beceause it is a special area you can only go once (Japhet's Folly).

Useful mod for when you are an advanced character and need to find odd place you have missed.

Hello, I am experiencing problems with this mod.

The first problem is that after I finished my first quest that Darian gave me, he then told me there were no more places for me to explore.

The second problem, is that after I exited the inn, re-entered the inn and spoke to him again, he gave me another location. I fast traveled to the nearest area, and after the loading screen, the quest disappeared and the marker was gone.

Really great mod! You should also consider adding the "gameplay" tag to your mod :)

Looking at it shortly Cole, seeing if it highlights quests yet to be done, as I seem to have all the place markers....

I've noticed a mod named Dungeon Quest Awareness that looks interesting. I have thought it might be good to have this running when discovering dungeons with Explore Skyrim. But, I haven't tried it yet.

I have thought I would like a mod that would direct me to quests I missed. That would be nice.

Pls. Prepare also mod with missed quest.
