Thanks for uploading, it gets rid of the quest without me having to kill him, but what about afterwards? I cannot continue the Blades Quest anyway, I get no option to give a follower to Delphine...

Could you make one for if and when you join the stormcloaks and if and when you take whiterun, you have an option to attack/deffend (defend and Bulgruf is still your besty)
please

an inkeeper orders me to kill one of my best dragon friends and expecting me to do it ? hell fucking no , fuck her and her leather armor

No, that's cause you need to turn on the subtitles to see what she said. The lines don't have voice work recorded.

Great mod! After resurrecting the dead bodies of the Blades (I killed them for Paarthurnax before activating this mod) I was able to not kill Paarthurnax and still be "friends" with the Blades. Tho Delphine didn't say a word. I guess it just bugged for me since I could see her lips movingbut just didn't hear her. Anyways, ty for uploading this beautiful little mod :D

10/10 Great job
Azuron Aug 7 @ 7:33pm 
Its working now. I hsve no idea why it didnt before. Maybe Delphine and Esbern have to reenter the blade temple.
Azuron Aug 7 @ 7:30pm 
I cant find the blades. I have talked to everyone already but the quest marker is locked on Paarthurnax.

Sub'd. Time to kick some ruthless asses.

Are you sure it's also activated? Subscription alone is not enough. Your Data Files menu needs to show it as enabled.
The Friendly Derakor Aug 3 @ 7:24pm 
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!
Jabberwookie Jul 28 @ 1:11am 
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?

10/10

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
[$]FluffyBlackWolf 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.
Arthmoor  [author] Jul 1 @ 11:51am 
You either need to turn the subtitles on, or use Fuz Ro D-oh - Silent Voice [www.nexusmods.com] 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.
lgnwrwck Jun 27 @ 6:35am 
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!
♥TacTical Lucario♥ Jun 4 @ 6:57pm 
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.
Dendrite May 29 @ 11:48pm 
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...
Disciple of CLQ May 18 @ 10:20am 
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add spoiler alert, i kinda ruined it for myself, its a sick mod but just warn people
♥TacTical Lucario♥ May 13 @ 6:53pm 
thanks m8, i want to make my followers blades, but at the same time i want to be told shout locations :3
[MLG] Xen the Crystal King May 9 @ 8:22pm 
I tried to follow as it says and the option to concince the blades isnt working...and i even talked to PAarthurnaxx and the Greybaeards....help
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
