thanks for saving Paarthurmax; thought i was going to have to kill him.. Worked without any bugs but still do not know what good it did me in the game overall. already taken one follower to the blades but now want another.

Hey THANKS for this Mod, I enoyed it greatly. I felt betrayed when they demanded I kill on their command. They approached The Dragon born (ME), Came to me offering to guide (advise) and guard. Not issue commands. And commanded me to obey them?

Oh no, that doesn't fly with me.

Does this work if you've already made your choice?

YES!! I was so mad at Delphine when this happened. As if the Dragonborn was the one lost in the dark without the Blades! I wanted to do more to tell her off or be given another choice in the matter instead of just being told what to do like a Blades servant. Thank you for making this!

o kk thx! but... the problem is i dont know how to turn subtitles on ;w;
Arthmoor  [author] Dec 11 @ 5:08pm 
You need to turn the subtitles on to see it. There is no voiced audio for it since it would be next to impossible to find someone who could mimic Delphine or Esbern properly.

Sorry, my screw up. I missed a step. It did work. Although there was a differrent bug, after I initiated the dialogue with Delphine I could not hear a word she said. I only say my responses and nothing of hers.

Just to let you know I tried removing this version and downloaded the Nexus version and it still did not work. I also double checked which version of Syrim I have at it is the most recent version with all the current upgrades.
Zombi3 Dec 11 @ 2:02pm 
yea same can someone pls fix this
skaldtorvaldr Dec 11 @ 2:00pm 
It is not working for me either. I have turned off other mods, I have changed the load order moving this mod up and I still get no other options. Not sure what else to try.
Sergeantmanboob Dec 10 @ 6:08pm 
This mod isn't working for me, i talk to Delphine and i dont get the new prompt.

Hey Vault Boy! All mods requiring the "skse" will tell you in the description. If they don't, they're pure evil, just slappity slap the subscribe button! SLAP IT!! SLAPPITY SLAPPIT!!
kkkkl Nov 30 @ 3:46pm 
this mod is truely needed to save parthuunax from the ruthless brutes known as the blades.
Vault Boy シ Nov 21 @ 3:44am 
noob here, does this require skse or something? or can i just subscribe to this mod and play with the steam launcher?
bold0727 Nov 18 @ 2:35pm 
Is this voiced? If not, can you add vocals using similair voices, or go through an entirely new character so you don't have to speak with them during the quest?
europaios Nov 18 @ 9:11am 
now i can give skirym 5 ***** (stars) with this mod perfect !!
Sheograth Nov 14 @ 5:02pm 
best mod, you need to make a "more optionals" series with some of the games that annoyed skyrim for so long
etrexler Nov 5 @ 9:08pm 
Hooray for this mod! Has made all the difference! Great work. Thanks!
Arthmoor  [author] Nov 5 @ 2:53pm 
Yes, you can still continue with the Blades after you tell them to leave Paarth alone.
ViPeRextra Nov 4 @ 11:07am 
OOHHH Thanks i like the Blades and Phaartunarx :3
Sage^2 Nov 1 @ 2:38pm 
and I can still continue the Blade's quests after I refuse right?
Thank You, Teuk Hin. for this awesome mod it worked to the letter!
myst Oct 27 @ 11:30am 
Thank you for making this Arthmoor & glad to find it on SW. Signed your wall in support.
brohaw211 Oct 26 @ 10:29am 
This quest has always pissed me off. I've never played the Blade's questline because I just like Paarthurnax better than them haha.
TeH RODENT =PL= Oct 21 @ 1:33pm 
Now I can sleep peacefully, thanks! Godsdammit, Blades, get your act together.
(though mod changed "The Fallen" to English. But as long as Paarthy lives, it's not a big deal for me :D)
Blondekid42 Oct 20 @ 10:25pm 
Well, perfection isn't required to me as long as Paarthurnax lives. ^_^ Hell it could be two nine-year-olds reading a script for all I care. XD
Arthmoor  [author] Oct 19 @ 2:03pm 
Audio would be nice, but finding people who can mimic the vanilla voices properly would be impossible. At least for Esbern. Bethesda couldn't even get a guy who sounded right for the parts that are obviously not Max Von Sydow's voice.
Blake Oct 19 @ 2:56am 
I ALWAYS FELT GUILTY FOR KILLING THE DRAGON
Blondekid42 Oct 16 @ 4:26pm 
Only thing that would make this better is audio =)

Also thank god someone made this. I've finished the game 5 times, and only now did I find this, the answer to my most irritating problem
Thank You

So if I get this mod I will be able to find words of power with the Greybeards and do the Blades quest or am I not understanding this?
blueaegisrider Oct 6 @ 10:03pm 
Worked perfectly even tho i killed alduin ages ago. Heck i finished dawnguard before installing the mod and it still works.
So far the mod only works if you did not kill paarthurnax. idk if you can maybe console command him back in if you killed him? just to be safe its better to do a new save file.
Delphine doesnt speak for the new dialogue given to her in the mod which is fine as her voice is pretty hard to replicate. The shaking at the end is a great touch. Makes me feel like the greybeards :D
Overall: Excellent mod! I highly recommend it!
Waffurs Oct 5 @ 9:19am 
I already killed him....is there anyway to bring him back? I really miss him, my sensei. ;-;
Handsome Jack Oct 4 @ 11:17am 
talynamber, use the console, click on her, and write setrelationshiprank 14 3 , now she should be friendly.
talynamber Oct 4 @ 6:20am 
I was able to restart the dialogue for recruiting Blade followers, but she still has "the attitude" can you fix her? LOL. She is SUCH a bitch, and I cannot tolerate her. I will have to kill her, then get a bounty on my head.
talynamber Oct 4 @ 6:18am 
Even though Delphine doesn't have any respones, I was never so gratified about telling her to piss off or I would eat her alive..snort! The shaking of Sky Haven Temple when she angers you is a great touch. I have been dying to tell her to go to hell all during that quest, now I had my say, hehe. Great, much needed improvement to the game. Bethesda should be ashamed they didn't do this.
Eman Oct 2 @ 1:56pm 
Ehh i just killed the blades.
Jonocat25 Oct 1 @ 5:43pm 
Well, Esbern's giving me blessings again, but Delphine can't be asked for Dragon locations or induct followers. WAs the mod supposed to be only a half measure for restoring the Blades funtionality?
That Snowman From That Game Sep 30 @ 1:53pm 
do I need to make a new character?
Arthmoor  [author] Sep 30 @ 1:29pm 
It's especially difficult to find people who can impersonate the vanilla actors.
Zahnrad Stæmpunk Sep 30 @ 10:19am 
LaserBorn, a lot of mods do that because the authors would need to get the voice actors to do additional dialog solely for the mod, it should give you the option but you won't hear anything as there's no dialog to be "spoken"
LaserBorn Sep 30 @ 3:03am 
when i reasoned with delphine she didnt make a sound luckily i had subtitles on.
can anyone tll me why this may have happened
cobra6282 Sep 30 @ 1:26am 
i remeber the first time the blades asked me to kill him i was like what the heck! he helped us
Do'Sdar Sep 29 @ 6:40pm 
More lore friendly than the actual game xD. Agreed, if you make a decision, the Blades should respect that decision!
toy chica Sep 29 @ 5:32pm 
btw i ment desc
toy chica Sep 29 @ 5:31pm 
i dont need no protecters after all i am dragonborn
toy chica Sep 29 @ 5:30pm 
after all i can banish daedra ther so why the heck not banish the blades
toy chica Sep 29 @ 5:29pm 
I WILL BANISH THE BLADES TO OBLIVION BEFOR I EVER LET THEM KILL MY TEACHA :3
toy chica Sep 29 @ 5:26pm 
you didint put spoiler alert i red comments and i have to kill paarthurnax NUUUUUUUUUUUUU NOT MY TEACHER XD
Jonocat25 Sep 29 @ 2:29pm 
So this makes the Blades talk to you again without having to kill good ol' Paarthy?
