Recruit More Blades - SkyHavenTempleEnhanced

The next update dated, 3Jan2015, is on Nexus at the following link.

That is where you will need to get it for now. It requires all three Bethesda DLCs.

I will leave the Steam mod as it is for now. It doesn't require any of the DLCs, but it won't have any of the updates either and could have issues.


Recruit any 20 followers to become a Blade. This mod should work even if you've been to Sky Haven Temple.

100% Compatible with UFO and AFT. EFF is not Compatible.

MAKE SURE THAT, Recruit More Blades - SkyHavenTempleEnhanced, IS THE LAST MOD LOADED IN THE LOAD ORDER.

After the first 3 Blade Recruits, Delphine will tell you to talk to Esbern about Dragon Lairs, just like in the vanilla game. If this doesn’t happen, then you have a corrupted save game that happened before you installed my mod or a mod conflict. This is your problem to resolve, not mine.

You can keep getting Blade Recruits, go talk to Esbern and go Dragon Hunting, or do something else.

Leaving the cell and coming back to Sky Haven Temple will cause the new Blade Recruit to get into their Blade Armor.


All UFO users – You might not need to uninstall UFO, but you need to at least dismiss all of your followers. I've found out that the original Bethesda Rebuilding The Blade Quest doesn't work with more than one follower at a time and my mod was built from that script. (Note: They might leave and head back to where you recruited them.)

The best way that I know is, if you haven't started the Recruit More Blades Quest, then just dismiss all of your followers, install Recruit More Blades - SkyHavenTempleEnhanced, activate it, recruit followers (one at a time, bring each one to Delphine one at a time like in the original game), dismiss each new recruit after you talk to Delphine. They will stay at SHT. Leaving the cell and coming back to SHT will cause the new Blade Recruit to get into their Blade Armor. After you’re through recruiting for a while, or have reached the maximum number of recruits I have set for this mod version, go get your followers and have fun with your new Blade Army. The number of followers and their dialog options are now controlled by UFO.

To get your Blade follower to give up their Blade Armor and wear something else, do the following,

1) Have them as a follower.
2) Tell them that they can dress better. This will put the Blade Armor into their inventory so that you can see and take it. They will still be wearing their Blade Armor.
3) Take their Blade Armor and then give them the new armor that you want them to wear.



This mod is 100% compatible with AFT if you follow the following steps.

NOTE: Disable AFT’s Inventory Management before recruiting the follower into the Blades, so that it's disabled when the follower gets its Blade armor. Re-enable it afterwards, then the armor will correctly appear in its inventory and can be improved at the forge or changed. If you don’t Disable AFT’s Inventory Management before you recruit the follower into the Blades, they will lose their weapons and armor, which you will not be able to get back.

1) Have no followers before talking to Delphine to Recruit More Blades for the first time. This quest starts after Alduin’s Wall Quest completes.
2) Go get a follower, (Only one at a time).
3) After you have the follower, type the following in the console; Set playerfollowercount to 1
4) Talk to Delphine about having a new recruit.
5) Repeat steps 2, 3, and 4 for each follower.
6) When you are finished recruiting all the followers you want for now, type the following in the console; Set playerfollowercount to 0
7) Enjoy your new Blade Army.


At the moment, all Blades are essential. I didn't want my Blades dieing on me while I'm making my mod and testing it. But remember, if you change them from being essential and they die, you won't be able to replace them at this time.

It is a great mod but I found that the extra blades I recruited didn't get the default blades Armour.

help, can't seem to get delphine to do the oath after talking to her

Sounds to me like he didn't release the quest to steam workshop, even though the 4 mods are on steam workshop, this is a very old mod and there was more updates on Nexus. Sadly I can't get them.

I managed to recruit 20 Blades :) but I wonder how do I start questline about Thalmor and lost Blade's relics? Is there a journal that activates that or to whom should I speak about it? Neither Delphine nor Esbern seems to have such an option available.

Is a German translation planned?

I use AFT. After I get the first 3 members I talk to Delphine she wont make the oath to the new member and wont leave my party to join. Happens nothing. But the quest shows I could collect 20 members :S
