Sjel Blad Castle - "Soul Blade" Castle in Norwegian, is an expansive player home mod with numerous character perks including an armory, forge, barracks, sanctuary, living quarters, vault, trophy hall, stables, guards, humanoid/creature companions, and much more!

This is my first Skyrim mod and I would love/appreciate feedback and comments. My desire is to create an optimal experience for the player and I cannot do so without the thoughts and ideas of the gaming community.

If you can't tell by now I love this game and its modding capabilities. I am a very passionate gamer and modder with a Bachelor's Degree in Video Game Art and Design. My hope is that one day I will be doing this as a career.

If you like the mod please rate it!

Thanks and enjoy!

Voted Best Home Mod of 2013 by GameSpot

I do not personally translate my mods to another language. All translations are done by fans of the mod into their native language. If you wish to translate this mod I will gladly upload the file and give you credit for the translation.

  • Updated version of Skyrim
  • Dawnguard DLC
  • Dragonborn DLC

The requirements are non-negotiable and Skyrim will crash if you do not possess the required software. It is not possible for me to create a non-DLC version of this mod, as the majority of castle (exterior and interior) was fashioned from Dawnguard and Dragonborn assets.

Sjel Blad Castle is located due south of the Throat of the World and east of Helgen along the road. If the castle does not appear on the map or in the actual game world, make sure the mod is selected in your Skyrim mod list; which is accessed under "Data Files" from the Skyrim splash screen.

  • In-house teleportation system - Travel to any area of the player home with ease

  • Item Auto-Sorting - Place your items in the Void Storage and auto-sort them to their respective chests/containers throughout the castle with one click

  • Auto-Storage/Retrieval - Store/remove all items from a chest or container with one click, or by preset amounts (1, 5, and 10)

  • Void Storage - A cloud storage system with receptacle points in every major room of the castle, along with a purchasable spell that conjures a portal in the game world allowing the player to access the Void Storage from anywhere. Say goodbye to over-encumbrance!

  • Customization Chamber - Allows the player to turn "on" or "off" certain options and/or features around the castle including Faction Banners, Faction-based Guards, Bed/Coffin, Bed/Drapery Color, Barrack Companions, Ceilings/Roofs, Windows/Skylights, Throne options, Doors, certain NPCs, Special Effects (to help with PC performance), and more!

  • Castle Servants - Trade-skill workers to do your bidding including an Alchemist, Angler, Armorsmith, Artificer, Bowyer, Brewer/Winemaker, Chef, Daywalker, Farmer, Fletcher, Forager, Hunter, Jewelcrafter, Metalsmith, Miner, Scribe, Staffcrafter, Tailor, and Trapper

  • Hall of Ascension - Allows the player to upgrade their character's base stats (Health/Magicka/Stamina), Crafting Skills, Damage/Skill Modifiers, and Physical Appearance/Sex/Race

  • Trophaeum (Trophy Room) - Allows the player to assemble Creature and Dragonslaying based trophies. Once assembled, Dragonslayer Trophies allow the player to summon the soul of a defeated dragon in combat. Also, the player can earn Kill Trophies which will grant access to features in the Hall of Ascension

  • Forge - Anvil, Smelter, Sharpening Wheel, Workbench, Tanning Rack, Mine, customized storage, two trade-based vendors, and optional Spider Imbuing Chamber. Also, the new Metalsmith servant gives the player access to Item Smelting, which allows the player to breakdown weapons and armor to their base raw metal and turn them into ingots....or Ore Transmutation which allows the player to convert metal ores into other ores

  • Sanctuary - Alchemy, Enchanting, and Staff Enchanting work areas complete with customized storage, as well as numerous bookshelves (holding over 400+ books / 2500+ with the optional second floor), two trade-based vendors (Alchemy/Enchanting), and an optional Atronach Forge

  • Barracks - 20+ Companions/Followers based on the Oblivion Character Classes. Archery Range, and Sparring Pit

  • Sparring Pit (Barracks) - Allows the player to test their skills against a variety of opponents in a free-for-all environment while earning rewards

  • Living Quarters - Sleeping area, clothing storage, and balcony

  • Lair - 100+ Creature Companions/Followers

  • Stables - 30+ purchasable Creature Mounts. Conjure Mount spell available to instantly summon your mount to your side

  • Waygates - Allows the player to travel to any major city including Raven Rock, Fort Dawnguard, and Volkihar Castle

  • Kitchen - Cooking Pots, food and drink-based custom storage, and trade-based vendor

  • Exterior Towers - Beautiful views on the Skyrim landscape

  • Hallowed Grove - (general area released in v1.3)
    • Crypts & Catacombs - Dungeons with varying difficulties

It is recommended to back up all Skyrim save files before installing any game mod, so please do so. Once a mod is installed and running it is highly advised to never save your game while inside or around player-created content, as this can lead to game content caching. Basically, the game remembers bits and pieces of a mod’s content in your saved game which can possibly cause problems in the future if that same content is changed or updated in any way. Saving your game in the outside game world helps prevent this from happening.

Just letting you know, after "auto loot", went to make Deadric Armor and foung I needed a Deadric heart that didn't loot. Have noticed this with a few things when it comes to making special armors.

@Magdalitena - Have you tried reverting to a previous game save? Sounds like the issue is with Steam and not the game.

Yesterday, after I updated Steam on my PC, all mods, except the DLC, would not load. I had to recheck them to make them load. Now all the items I had stored in the castle are gone. All my trophies, gear in the armory, potions...everything is gone. How do I get these items back?

@angelopicchi - I don't believe there is a way to reset and/or clear achievements already earned in a game. As for the gold, press the "~" key, type "player.additem 00000f typedesiredgoldamounthere", and then press Enter
