Whisper - Kill Them With Kindness

Whisper, a shadowy figure so feared and revered by the people of Skyrim that not a soul dares even mention him or her, has taken an interest in you and your rise to power.

Knowing that there is room in each hold for the honorary position of Thane, Whisper has done some legwork for you in finding out how to ''Assist the people of ______'', but isn't going to just lead you by the nose in your quest to obtain the title.

Oh no...that would be FAR too easy.

Instead, you find yourself in possession of a lengthy letter from Whisper, a set of cryptic journals, and a thin shiv which glows warmly and tingles in your hand. It is a long and winding road through the forest of favors and deception which is politics and Whisper has merely shown you a rough map. It is up to you to take the journey.


This is a simple object mod which adds a note, nine books, and an enchanted weapon to your inventory. The note gives a bit of lore-friendly backstory to help in roleplaying, but this is not an official journal-clogging "Do this, then that" quest. I'll leave that sort of stuff to modders more experienced than myself.

In essense, this is an in-game guide to completing the "Become Thane of (insert hold name here)" quests in the vanilla game.

The books themselves list names, locations, and a rough idea of what you will need to do for the person to assist them, letting you go for 'easy' jobs like selling stuff or diplomacy or 'tough' jobs like dungeon delving and break-ins, etc.,

The shiv? Well, that's good for stealthily giving an opponent some...well...unexpected (and probably unwanted) body piercings.


Known Bugs/Conflicts

None that I am aware of. These are vanilla books, copied from journals and notes in the base game, so no DLCs are required.

A future release may include a journal on becoming "Thane" of Raven Rock (They don't call it that though - no Jarls) but even that will still be a base book and will just give people without the Dragonborn DLC a bunch of information that will do them no good whatsoever, right?


Many, MANY thanks to David Brahser, without whose "Auto-Add Your Item or Spell To Player Template" mod/tutorial, these books would not exist outside of my own Excel spreadsheet.


Also available on the Nexus.

You meaning add the books after those quest conclusions or Whisper, herself, as an NPC? If you are meaning the NPC, I have a mod in the works which replaces this one. The new mod does add Whisper as an NPC, adds about 13 more books, a merchant, some quests, new (less OP) weapons, and a player home.

Currently a bit 'burnt out' on Skyrim though, so nibbling away at the mod instead of voraciously biting at it like I was in the beginning, so no ETA on release.

Also could you add Whisper after completing the DB, Thieves guild and becoming Thane of the Nine Holds
