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[]

@Toasted-Toaster-Toast SPOILER ALERT: It always activates the law, wherever you kill him. It is supposed to. It's a plot twist. You are meant to run back to the lakehouse and begin the time loop again.

Help. I decided to take marius and kill him but I cant find any place to kill him, it just activates the law. Also there are multiple spots where the dwemer are "not watching" like the jarls locked room but if i kill someone it still activates. Am i just supposed to restart and not decide to kill him or have I just not been in the correct spot of the tunnels?
