Thxs for the mod, I JUST took this quest and I surrey don't want to kill Paarthurnax!

Nothing wrong with the Blades..... in Oblivion. In Skyrim they are just nasty and unlikeable. Thanks for the Mod.

i wish there was a dialogue option in the vanilla game to just tell the blades:
F*ck the blades, F*ck the empire, F*ck the stormcloaks, F*ck the dominion, Im the dragonborn i shall do as I please
RSMercer Nov 26 @ 12:42pm 
Paarthurnax must die. I dont care he decided to be good in the end. He still was Alduin's chief liutenant until it stopped suiting him.

yeah ijust dont kil him i take the weapon and armor from the blades and then forget about them
Softnet Studios Waffleo Nov 20 @ 6:07pm 
Well I just didn't kill him that's how to not kill him see!

Finally! back when I played on console (ugh) I hated how this worked because I happen to be the dragonborn I should be able to tell them what to do.

Nevermind, I just had to complete the main questline first, so this mod still works!
c.r.gaitan02 Nov 17 @ 11:08pm 
Sadly, I dont believe this mod works anymore.

Thanks

Yes, a translation would be fine with me.
Adroule Oct 24 @ 3:39am 
Do I have the permission to upload a translated version of this mod in the workshop ? I will of course put the link of your mod in the description.

i have the same problem as josh21, i select it in data files but no dialogue options appear
josh21 Oct 19 @ 7:43am 
Yes it is loaded in data files
Brohanga Oct 18 @ 5:39pm 
@josh21, Did you check it in Data Files at the startup of the game to load?
josh21 Oct 18 @ 3:36pm 
i also have it subscribed and activiated
josh21 Oct 18 @ 3:32pm 
Yes i have talked to all three multiple times. still not giving any other options with either Esbern or delphine.
Arthmoor  [author] Oct 17 @ 4:18pm 
Did you also talk to Arngeir? The objective should have plainly told you to. Only after you've talked to both of them will you be given the option to spare him through dialogue.
josh21 Oct 17 @ 4:12pm 
I must be stupid, because I can't get this to work. I subscribed to this mod before I started a new character. The Blades tell me to kill P. I talk to P, use all the conversation options he has, leave him and go back to the Blades. There are no new dialogue choices for either Delphine or Esbern. The author says "you may need to be forceful" so I tried whacking Delphine. She's unkillable. Eventually she becomes hostile and attacks me on sight.
I weep. Any advice?
Arthmoor  [author] Oct 12 @ 7:39pm 
Subtitles. You need them :P
Brohanga Oct 12 @ 5:23pm 
Not sure why, but I could not hear any of the dialog the blades were saying when I spared Paaurthurnax. I went on and finished it thought. Just wish I could have heard what they were saying.
BlackOpium2 Oct 9 @ 11:03am 
Oh god finally :D i never was able to play the blades, cause I never killed paarthurnax, but now with this mod I finally can! Thank you so much :)
God Of God Sep 25 @ 12:01am 
the quotes that you tell the blades when you spare him are so badass i made this quick comic with no relation to this mod. just used the quotes cause i liked them

Cool, thy.
Arthmoor  [author] Sep 6 @ 4:15pm 
You can install it at any point along the way.
Raven Grim Scorn Sep 6 @ 1:20pm 
So..do you install this before you get to this part of the main quest or after shit went down at the Truce meetin'?...
Loreknight Aug 29 @ 3:04pm 
yeah but you're unable to get special perks from the blades like a unique potion, blades gear for your followers, and having the blades help you attack word walls
HQDefault Aug 28 @ 5:27pm 
Guys, you do realize you can beat the game without killing paarthurnax, right? I mean It's cool that I'm able to tell the blades they're being stupid, but you don't need to stop playing the game to avoid killing paarthurnax.
novaair11 Aug 24 @ 3:02pm 
i still haven't completed the main quest cause i didn't wanna kill paarthurnax XD
Chronic_Turtles Aug 24 @ 10:37am 
Can we Kill Blades ?
Kronos Aug 19 @ 12:07am 
Paathurnax is an amazing character and I hated killing him so much Iv only finished the MQ once out of my 9+ characters. Thank you so much man, thank you.
WyimaginowanY Aug 13 @ 12:59am 
So glad someone made this mod. I love Paarthurnax and dont want kill him, Thank you so much!

@Sethkasketch

Turn the subtitles on.
Sethkasketch Jul 26 @ 8:42am 
Are the Blades supposed to be completely silent when I tell them I'm not killing Paarthurnax? They don't seem to respond to what I'm saying.
Bat_Horse Jul 21 @ 1:22am 
Thank you. You are like the cool older brother I never had. The one who would have tricked me into doing something stupid on my first playthrough, The one who would eventually help and take tips from me. Only this time, you returned the favor.
Mah Boi Jun 22 @ 6:39pm 
@ark play without armor
Ark Jun 11 @ 11:12am 
I play in legendary and I am one shotting dragons left and right. No mods that increase my power or anything. I think this games gets to be way to easy once you reach level 90.
Bill Suckington Jun 10 @ 4:27pm 
i never wanted to kill paarthurax i am really glad some one thought the same :-)

NexUz 冬 May 31 @ 2:48pm 
Thank you so much for this mod, it really was necessary. ;)
Yeazzal May 26 @ 5:54pm 
I always wanted to join the blades since I seen how awesome there armour was, but I could never bring myself to kill my Dragon Master and friend, now thanks to yee- I finally can! Thank you, you are my favorite author!
Qahnaarin May 20 @ 2:50pm 
OOPS SORRY I WENT TO THE WRONG PAGE
Qahnaarin May 20 @ 2:49pm 
wouldn't*
Qahnaarin May 20 @ 2:48pm 
I am sorry to say but I sadly had to unsub from this. The very first boss was kicking my ass! He was too strong and I couldn't kill him. It was like I did no damage to him at all. Sorry dude. I wouln't have unsubbed if I could actually do damage
Shairen The Wolf May 12 @ 11:34pm 
ah, I didn't realize that I was going to do something that bad D: thank you so much !!! really!
Arthmoor  [author] May 12 @ 5:06pm 
Well I think in Skyrim's case they could be excused for being paranoid because the Thalmor DID wipe them all out. They were the only organization that could be any threat to them.

Delphine's fanaticism about resurrecting the Dragonguard was beyond all that though. The Blades hadn't been about that for centuries and it really didn't make a lot of sense to insist they go back to that, especially once Alduin was gone.
Victoryguard May 12 @ 5:02am 
Is it me or did the Blades become worse with successive games, in Morrowind you had to play along but, in Oblivion they made a bad first impression which was never really appologised for and then by Skyrim they're genocidal maniacs? Shadows preserve us!
Arthmoor  [author] May 10 @ 7:28pm 
Don't do that. Removing mods from an active playthrough is a great way to corrupt your save.
Shairen The Wolf May 10 @ 4:20pm 
QUESTION: if i remove the mod after this conversation is done, is everything alright or the blades will have bloodthirst again? XD (extra question not -really- related to the voice quest: I don't know what happened, but even if i went to visit the old dragon my charachter has forgotten the 3 words to walk fast foward exception for the very first one, any advice?
Blitz Striker May 6 @ 12:59pm 
yay, now i dont have to kill poor old Paarthurmax anymore.
