Are you sure it's also activated? Subscription alone is not enough. Your Data Files menu needs to show it as enabled.

is there a video showing when to do this? because they asked me to kill him, im subscribed yet i have no option to say no still, do i have to contune and beat the main quest before telling them? or am i seeing a bug here?
King Aug 3 @ 10:55am 
Yea, whenever I got to that point I stopped playing that questline. Thanks!

I thought it was a bug for the longest time that I had to kill him, atleast you get to keep the dragon you captured in white run I thought.... its was bs, Paarthurnax is like the Gandalf of dragons, who would want to kill him? and why wouldnt the grey beards beat you senseless like when you lure a helpless troll into their temple?

To kill Paarthumax is a waste thanks for the mod
silvetwolf Jul 18 @ 6:25pm 
I want to say thanks for this mod :D I really liked it and glad to spare Paarthurnax
[SiNG]BlackWolf Jul 17 @ 6:40pm 
Yeah. But this mod Ohmaigawd I love it! Its great!! Im soo glad I got this, I didnt have to kill Paarthunax :D
Saint Stephen Jul 17 @ 1:45pm 
bethesda should of put this in in the first place anyway
Arthmoor  [author] Jul 17 @ 12:21pm 
Because it's not a bug.
Saint Stephen Jul 16 @ 8:24pm 
why cant this be added in the unofficial patch?
Highspeed Jul 8 @ 11:04am 
I totally forgive Paarthurnax, and I will kill Delphine and Esburn if I must.

You either need to turn the subtitles on, or use Fuz Ro D-oh - Silent Voice [] to see them only when lines don't have audio.

So, it all worked out, ol' Parrthy lived, and Delphine is still talking to me, although, like disasterbunny, I could not hear any of her dialog while she is giving in to the argument. I would've enjoyed hearing her crumble before such well spoken persuasion, but if a fix is not possible perhaps you could post it here and at least I could read it. Although I do have a few mods that effect dragons in general, (more swag, lighter bones) none specifically target Paarthurnax.
Other than that, this is an outstanding mod, I highly recommend it.
I'll load an earlier save and speak to Esbern first (although arrow points to Delphine) and see if he has any dialog, and I'll let you know what I learn.

It took me a lot of time to get it working, but i did it. The only bad thing was that when i went to speak to Delphine, i could'nt hear her. I just randomly saw hear mouth move, but nothing came out of it. Would've loved to hear her.

I talked to Paarthurnax and the Greybeards about it and listened to them and then i went back to the Blades but i dont have any option to explain it to them or make them listen to me. I dont know if im just doing it wrong or if it doesnt work.
*+@.[LoS].@+* sniperray213 Jun 25 @ 9:25pm 
Mod is not working. its not making me spare his life and tell Delfine or esbern why
*Logan* Jun 25 @ 8:03pm 
Thanks for this. Works well. I had already finished all the dragon altar quests it seems so I was able to get an award right away and that was the end of that.
+Faisal+ Jun 25 @ 10:05am 
so if i already have the quest but didn't kill him will the quest disappear ??
Arthmoor  [author] Jun 21 @ 12:40pm 
Don't do that. The mod won't cause any trouble once you've completed it, and uninstalling it is going to corrupt your game due to the changes it made along the way that won't be reversed.

NEVER uninstall a mod from a running save.
dotFoxx Jun 13 @ 10:23pm 
This should have been a feature in game. So glad this mod exists
jezre Jun 11 @ 8:58pm 
Definitely would recommend. It just works.
Greatbolt Jun 7 @ 3:07am 
Я подписался, а лаунчере игры файла нет. Как скачать??
Slither Jun 5 @ 6:33pm 
great mod this should have been included in the original game. lowly blades telling the dragonborn how things are gonna be? nope!
lol, you ever thu'um'd so hard, that the person you are talking to became mute? :3

Did you know the person who did Paarthunax's voice did Mario's voice? The more you know the smarter you grow.

I have 600 hours into Skyrim, and didn't finish the main quest line for one reason or another. There's so much content, that I didn't really feel like putting up with the poor scripting of the main questline (This being the more recent piece of garbage turn off; I do what I want.. forget the blades). Having not played in nearly a year, this modification is very welcome in rekindling my interest for this game.

Perhaps I'll finish the main quest now.
Arthmoor  [author] May 27 @ 1:00pm 
You do need it if you expect to be able to do Blades stuff after the MQ since they won't talk to you at all if Paarthurnax is still alive.
WolfSpirit May 26 @ 11:51pm 
I got this quest and didnt want to kill him, so I didnt. When I killed Alduin, the quest to kill him disappeared. So I guess you dont need this mod afterall
JPWardani May 25 @ 10:08am 
Oh if I knew this mod before killing him... =(
DustFang112 #Ass Titan May 24 @ 10:21pm 
Now I don't have to feel like a d*ck and nether do you! This mod is wonderful.
Benindetto May 23 @ 9:05pm 
Please add a spoiler alert to the description. I just had this aspect of the game ruined for me
darkblue72 May 22 @ 8:31pm 
besides the lore breaking dragon speech which is lore breaking because the dovahkiin did not know the dragon tongue, however it was easily ignorable and it sounded proffessionally written almost as if i heard delphine herself talking. You did a masterful job, you have my thanks!
残邪 kataware 眊鬼 May 19 @ 6:53am 
yeah, same here, was just browsing when just read what is the end of blades questline...
C9 Fan May 18 @ 10:20am 
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add spoiler alert, i kinda ruined it for myself, its a sick mod but just warn people
thanks m8, i want to make my followers blades, but at the same time i want to be told shout locations :3
I tried to follow as it says and the option to concince the blades isnt working...and i even talked to PAarthurnaxx and the
Adendron May 2 @ 9:44am 
is the mod supurting german?
Arthmoor  [author] Apr 25 @ 1:26pm 
No, you can install it after you're told to kill him.
[DG]TheMuffinMan Apr 25 @ 8:14am 
Never mind, all i did was reload skyrim and it worked fine! I recommend reloading skyrim
[DG]TheMuffinMan Apr 25 @ 8:03am 
do you have to have thsi installed before you get the quest??
OMEGANAVIE Apr 24 @ 8:35pm 
I still want to kill Delphine and Esbern...
[420]X2Kush Apr 20 @ 12:22am 
I would love to see voices added to the dialogue. Extremely well written, though. Maybe someday you will add more blades quest lines now that they are chill with it? :)
mercuris27 Apr 17 @ 11:18pm 
sweet i did not want to kill him
Foner_Thunder Apr 14 @ 7:17pm 
I have the same problem as Jakecreator97, i talked with Arngeir and Paarthurnax, but cant convince Esbern nor Delphine. What am i doing wrong? :S
darksiren22 Apr 14 @ 3:39pm 
It appeared back randomly in my journal and worked great. Thanks for this mod :) .
Ecthelion Apr 11 @ 5:48pm 
The dialog with Delphine is awesome. Did you make the words up, or are they "real" dragon tongue?

Bethesda was Lazy. Thinking : the "Dragonborn" is Only a Puppet on the Strings,
he has to Do and Not To Ask, and the Dragonborn has Nothing to Say.
He get a Order and has to do wot the Blades Say.
Dragonborn as a Slave.

This MOD give the Player his Own Way.

The Dragonborn is the Boss, not the Slave.

With this MOD the Player is not the footboy of the Blades.

Not the Slave of - 2 Peoples - they are the last "Blades".


Who Playes without this MOD, is an Idiot and no own Will. Sorry.

Long ago I subscribed to this great mod and it did all as promised. However,since the Great Mod Screwup of March 17,Delphine still keeps ragging on me to kill Paarthurnax. Everything else works great in this mod,and I did everything I wanted with it a year or so ago...spared Paarthurnax,delievered three new followers to the Blades,got Esben's Potion,everyone behaves beautifully. Except now Delphine is still a hardass about the Dragon. It really shouldn't matter to me since I don't need any of them any more,but it still is annoying. Have you got any ideas why there's this glitch? Or perhaps I should just leave it.
