The Forgotten City is the first mod in history to win a national Writers' Guild award with its script. It is a critically acclaimed expansion mod offering a unique 6 - 8 hour experience: a murder mystery investigation set in an ancient underground city. You'll need to solve it using your wits, and the ability to travel through time. It has a dark, non-linear story in which you'll interrogate suspects, explore the city and its many secrets, and navigate challenging moral dilemmas. It features multiple endings, an original orchestral score, and professionally voiced dialogue.

"The story here is, no doubt, the best of any Skyrim mod. It's so good, that it really reminds me of Blockbuster movies like Inception, Interstellar, and especially Edge of Tomorrow." MxR Mods

"Amazing... it's a super dynamic story... how the mod utilizes paradoxes and time loops is fantastic... one of the most thriling quests we've ever played..." BroDual

“Undeniably impressive.” PC Gamer  

“The production values, for a mod, are completely ridiculous. The Forgotten City is a pretty big deal.” Kotaku[]

@Marken SPOILER WARNING No, you won't see Ulrin or Maisi again because they've left Skyrim behind. They're living in a nice little cottage on the Gold Coast in Cyrodiil, the events of the past long forgotten.

Anyway here is my opinion with some score --> 10/10
Just question for someone who knows or the author himself is it possible to meet Ulrin/Maisi out in the world after they left the City of Firefly? Still feel bad about leaving her in the prison to find other way to save her. (sorry for 2 comments but 1k character limit is really anoying)

My english language can be a little of clumsy , so sorry about it. Also be adviced there's going to be a SPOILERS!
I need to say that mod is awesome , not only in the aspect of time travelling / changing the mistakes you had before but also multiple endings that depends on your choices .
Got through 3 endings one with ulrin and maisi and one with arbiter. Probably there was more like letting looters come in , or kill jarl by yourself, or accusing someone else for trying to disturb dwarmens law (still couldn't let myself to accuse innocent person (expect jarl)).
Playing this mod felt like playing Undertale in the aspect of changing the time by reloading near save point (here was of course going through portal :P ) I found some references to some games too.
