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.

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.

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.

@ark play without armor

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.

i never wanted to kill paarthurax i am really glad some one thought the same :-)

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!

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.
This mod works perfectly for me. Great job, Paarthurnax lives!
ender788 Apr 24 @ 2:01pm 
i just killed them im so sick of how ruthless they are towards paarthurnax do they not know that hes the one who tuoght the three nord heros the way of the voice are they that blind?
jffyt Apr 19 @ 5:14pm 
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?
bob77088 Apr 8 @ 1:17pm 
i downloaded this mod before i got the kill paarthurnax quest and now when i go to the throat of the world for the first time paarthurnax is not there. help me.
Connorama Mar 23 @ 7:54pm 
I have an issue. right after i say "we spare him" and i ask esbern for a dragon location, i go to the location and there is no dragon to be seen. help
Fort Mar 21 @ 12:50pm 
I have spoke to the grey beards and paarthurnax but when i go back to Esbern he doesnt say anything after his "about Paarthurnax" lines. i downloaded this mod after i started the "kill Paarthurnax" quest so i was wondering if this had anything to do with the fact that i cant go any further
Darkreed Mar 19 @ 4:57am 
I really want this mod as I just reached the said stage of the quest, will it still work even if I install it now? (just tried convincing the blades with little success in vanilla)
Arthmoor  [author] Mar 17 @ 2:03pm 
I would imagine it's because people like this one more? :P
Little Beast Mar 17 @ 7:50am 
I'm wondering why this mod has almost 3k votes, while the "Paarthurnax Choices(+3)" mod, with 3, almost 4 choises of actions only have 112... It even beat this with 4 months.
TheMicronemesis Mar 14 @ 9:46pm 
Thank the gods! Finally I don't have to kill my own dragon buddy who helped me beat Alduin in the first place.
Captain MarthExer [VF2P] Mar 9 @ 8:39am 
Paarthurnax is my friend he help me defeat Alduin =D
Hallowench Mar 7 @ 10:16am 
Thank you so much for this!
Smooty Mar 6 @ 3:27pm 
After talking about how Paarthunax should die, there is no option. I talked to Esbern, and Delphine, and Paarthunax and i dont get another dialogue option...
Am I doing something wrong?
Der Harryge Feb 23 @ 10:38am 
wow very nice work
Gboy193 Feb 21 @ 6:48pm 
Oh, ok, I thought I was missing some sound files. Thanks!
Arthmoor  [author] Feb 21 @ 3:42pm 
There is no audio, you need the subtitles on for that.
Gboy193 Feb 21 @ 3:05pm 
So, am I the only one who didn't have any audio for the Conversation with Delphine to put your foot down, or is there even any audio?
BloodgodArmor Feb 12 @ 8:32pm 
I got it now.
The objective came later for some reason
Arthmoor  [author] Feb 10 @ 12:14pm 
You didn't also go talk to Paarthurnax like the objective said to :P
BloodgodArmor Feb 9 @ 9:41pm 
I told the greybeards that I won't kill mPaarthunax, but when I went to Delphine and Asbern they don't respond after I say "About Paarthunax."
What's going on???
Shou Feb 7 @ 11:55pm 
I (try to) slay Delphine for fun. I hate her, she has a grudge against dragons that isn't hers. She did not experience the tyranny of Alduin. It was Paarthurnax who taught the men (and maybe mer) to shout. Without Paarthurnax's way of the voice, Alduin would have ruled until Paarthurnax did what he did.
Arthmoor  [author] Feb 7 @ 11:56am 
You should be fine. It'll just sit and wait patiently until it's time for Delphine to confront you.
SteelPhoenix78 Feb 7 @ 9:28am 
Is there any potential for problems if I have this set up to load well before I get to that point in the main quest? Or is it okay to go ahead & load it up now so it's ready when I get to that point? (My current game is at the point in the main questline right before I talk to Delphine about infiltrating the Thalmor Embassy.)
Evil Feb 6 @ 4:51pm 
OH MY GOD THANK YOU, I STOPPED AT THAT QUEST, I SIMPLY REFUSED TO GO ON! NOW I CAN!
Cenobite30 Feb 6 @ 10:47am 
Will I still be able to rercruit new members into the Blades after I choose not to kill Paarthurnax?
hylianfishfood Jan 27 @ 4:25pm 
no no he's fine...i got the quest to kill him but i've been ignoring it. now i don't have to..ican just reason w/the blades :P
Arthmoor  [author] Jan 27 @ 4:10pm 
Nope. If you killed him, your decision has already been made and this mod will be useless to you.
hylianfishfood Jan 27 @ 1:24pm 
Thank you so much i have been putting off killing him for ages. My sweet dragon friend shall live to see another day. and several. and i can actually advance in Blades quests
Phoenix Jan 24 @ 10:04am 
i feel that the Civil War questline was very unrealistic. i mean you wouldn't just take over one fort, and suddenly, you took over the city. And hte fact that they never tried to take them back was completely unrealistic. It should be more like if you took the fort, you would need to go into the city and take that over too. And if the enemy tries to take it back, a courier brings a letter saying that an army is marching onto X fort or Y city, and they give you a few days to get there in defense or, if you don't make it, they take it back over and you would need to go and take it back, but it would be harder to do than it was than the last time you took it over. Also, it would be cool if you didn't join a side, but made you own side in the war, or made a treaty that ended it without taking over everything without a war.
