A great hero of the Companions lies dead before he could defeat his greatest quest, the slaying of the great giant, Barlok'Gosh. Take up the arms of Holfir Giant Slayer and travel dangerous roads and caves to find Barlok'Gosh and finish what he started.


- A brand new quest to follow in the footsteps of a legendary slayer of giants.

- New dungeons and outdoor areas to travel and fight through.

- Lore friendly and consistent with the style and themes of the rest of the game.

- Supporting lore delivered through in-game books.

- Wield the unique weapons and armor of Holfir Giant-Slayer.

- Fight the largest Giant skyrim has ever seen, Barlok'Gosh.

- Compatible with all Bethesda DLC. No Prerequisites.

Patch 1.4 Notes

- Fixed the facegen issue on NPCs.

- New title image.

Patch 1.3 Notes

- Fixed a Navmesh issue preventing followers leaving the giant's location by normal means.

Patch 1.2 Notes

- Improved the NavMesh to allow the Giant to attack the player on the bridge and to stop him attempting to run into areas too small for him.

- Followers should now follow you into Bodean's Path and to the giant's location.

- Slightly reduced the incoming giant damage modifier of Holfir's Plate armor, making the fight a little harder.

- Added a chest to the crashed cart by the pond, adding to the overall reward value of the quest.

Patch 1.1 Notes

- Fixed the issues with quest markers and log entries not showing, however, this will likely reset the quest's progress (but shouldn't get rid of quest items already obtained).

***If you have issues with this quest reset, you can use the console to 'SetStage' followed by the quest ID 'tos_TheBiggerTheyAreQST' followed by the stage numbers 10, 40 or 200. 200 is for quest completion)***


- The quest does not have to be started to be completed, if you stumble upon the locations/enemies on your own, you're free to complete it as you see fit (just like back in the days of TES III: Morrowind).

- The quest can be started normally by reading Of Holfir Giant Slayer, a book that can be found in Whiterun's general store, the Bard's College, and as random loot in dungeons.


- Now available in Russian - http://modgames.net/load/250-1-0-11445

This worked just fine for me, but... it's too short! The only real thing you do is go through the cave and kill the giant. Not even a decent reward for the quest, just the special equipment that I'm never going to use again.

I have an idea. Why not make a questline that gives cool items, either good enchanted weapons and armour, scaled weapons and armour or modded weapons and armour that look cool. Maybe set one piece per quest and have a faction that is competing with you to get the items that constantly get in your way

Sorry this crashes on load of Skyrim. Sat and went through each mod added. Potential conflict with Giant Giants and Mammoths? Or other skeletons (XP32, etc.)? Everything else loads fine as soon as I remove this mod.

Hi mr. Oranges, very cool quest, handsomely done..!! Unfortunately a strange bug has occured ..ever since finishing the quest my hero has grown in size permanently...she's now like 6 ft.8 (or like over 2 meters) and stands way taller than the NPC's! First person view is still normal height but it looks kind of odd with the rotating camera...everyone literally looking up to the gigantic nord girl with the mega bow! Is this a known issue??

Is there a console ID for the items? I only have the armor and bow; I believe there was a sword at one point but I can't seem to find it...
