'''I see!' said the Queen, who has meanwhile been examining the roses. 'Off with their heads!' and the procession moved on, three of the soldiers remaining behind to execute the unfortunate gardeners, who ran to Alice for protection.
'You sha'n't be beheaded!' said Alice, and she put them into a large flower-pot that stood near.''

One of the most frustrating and frankly disturbing things to me in games is when the player character is dismembered in a death scene. In Skyrim, where the character you play is one you spent half an hour creating and days adventuring with, the sight of their head getting effortlessly lopped off by a bandit wielding an iron angers me.

This mod removes the Savage Strike and Devastating Blow perks from every NPC I could find, so we don't have to see what would have happened if Alduin didn't attack Helgen.
Ideally, it removes the rare but frustrating ocurrence of the player dying from getting their head cut off.

I've gotten a few negative comments, but enough positive comments to keep the mod available, so there is a demand for it. I'm not making any statements about decapitation or anything, I'm just trying to help a few people out who might want the ability to customize their experience.

My suggestion is to put this at the bottom of your load order, especially if you have other mods that modify NPCs.

If your head gets lopped off by an NPC I missed, let me know so I can stuff you into a flower pot so to speak.

Another version that removes decapitation in any nonscripted form

Yes, it does. I scoured all NPCs for the perks and removed them.

Does this mod also remove the perk from reocurring npcs like vampires, bandits, ect?

In fact, I take Bithface as a sort of compliment, because Biths are highly intelligent, highly civilized beings.

Ladies and gentlemen, this faceless troll has given us a gift. For the one word he misspelled turned his bathroom-wall "insult" into a joke.
I give you the Bith:

This version just prevents you, the player, from being decapitated by vanilla NPCs.
The other version linked in the description removes decapitation altogether except from those two execution scenes in the vanilla game.
