Heh, Judging by your profile picture, I'm guessing you're a teenage edgelord that listens to hard metal and cuts his wrists because you're suicidal

My advice, buy some rope and learn to tie a noose, it does what you want it to do and doesn't make a mess.

'Death Proof' The hypocrisy is real.
nico Oct 16 @ 12:10am 
the problem is that to complete the quest you can only kill him but this mod ads the chance to decide to spare him wich bethesda should have added in the game itself!!!

How about you all stop being pussies about a dragon getting killed. If you don't wanna kill him, don't! you don't need to make a mod to fix this "dilemma". Goddamn annoying OCD fucks.

It should also be made clear to the blades > Delphine & Esbern that even if Paarthurnax did turn bad that it would be the Dovahkiins burden to bare and that you would put him down if he was truly a threat

Almost 100%, just wished it was voiced, otherwise, loved it, now just wonder why vanilla didnt include.
castlebaydad Oct 2 @ 3:04pm 
At the ultimatum of the quest made by Delphine, "You're either with us or against us." Make her and Esbern non essential, Then you could kill them both. :)

Awesome mod! Suspenseful.

Kill the blades!

@ARE THOSE WAFFLES?! paarthurnax back in ye old olden days served in alduins army, but then rebelled. "What is better, to be born good, or to overcome your evil nature?" -Paarthurnax

King and duke - old story. Humans become instruments for Paarthurnax in his war against Alduin's throne. Question of time, when dragonborn gettin' old and die, than Paarthurnax can reconquer the Tamriel. Blades thinking like spies - which they've always been. Don't mean they right, but from other side in game books no sugar-stories, only cruel reality.

Perfect!
nico Aug 1 @ 3:00am 
in order to let the customized quest start you have to kill alduin in sovngarde and after that happend you can speak to deplhine and the customized quest will start, but it doesnt work if you start the quest before alduin is dead so avoid starting the quest until you killed alduin!!!!!!!
doesn't work

I honestly dislike their need of killing Paarthurnax, what did he do? Why is he hated?
Plus, weren't they supposed to serve the Dragonborn, not have the Dragonborn serve them? Paarthurnax is my pal, why would I kill him to join the Blade's weirdo traitor group?

I'm not sure but this mod seems to generate one bug, some quest and dialogs related to greybeards and blades are in english (i play in french), including one quest (retrieving a word) wich did not disappear when fulfilled.
Beat_my_Yeet Jun 19 @ 8:30am 
yah yah das ich nich gut. (its in fucking german) although good mod
Zirados Jun 10 @ 6:44am 
welp, i have subscribed to this mod, and now all doors, and some quests are in german (i think its german) is there a way to fix this? because its not everything. the map is english, just doors
Shahrazad the Listener May 21 @ 8:08am 
I wondered who Paarthurnax's new friends were. I didn't realize at first they were part of the mod. :P Inferno Terror Bane, Ghost Sorcerer Prince, and Brutal Frost Slayer?
bentreacypc May 21 @ 3:15am 
I have just started the quest 'paarthurnax' and ive spoken to the greaybeards, P-nax and the blades and i cant get the dialogue to appear. Its only showing me 'about paarthurnax...' for both delphine and esbern. Any help would be appreciated :)
nico May 9 @ 8:15am 
1 question when you started the quest "the fallen" you can talk to esbern and he after some time will say that a dragon is the greybeards leader and you need to kill paarthurnax but my game only says kill paarthurnax.... does the mod only work if you have completed the mainquest before starting the quest "paarthurnax"???? please help me :D (pretty please help me)
Ivan Yakinov Apr 29 @ 1:57pm 
Use the console command ( setstage MQPaarthurnax 50 ) if the mod doesn't do it for you. It should put it at a stage of completion beyond paarthunax's death, but won't kill him so you can still meditate on words of power, you'll just need to lie to delphine and say he's dead. Hope this helps.

Very nice.
Cerberus Mar 18 @ 3:38am 
I've came a cross a bug that when you make sure that the blades are 'told off' and you don't have to kill paarthurnax I can't recruit people into the blades. Does this happen alot or is there something wrong on my part?
Mr. Madao Feb 15 @ 7:12pm 
The saddest part of killing paarthurnax was not being able to devour his heart afterwards..
fishert2208901 Feb 1 @ 4:32pm 
I didn't agree with having to kill the very dragon that gave you the neccessary powers to deal with Alduin.
X-01 Mario Jan 29 @ 10:20am 
if i understood this mod well, i will not be forced to kill paarthurnax and blades will be happy as well ?
frumentarii Jan 22 @ 8:25pm 
If you ever kill Paarthurnax you're a heartless monster.
Norwood Jan 20 @ 2:47am 
┌ but he just left us behind forever, and we don't want that happen.
Mysticat Jan 16 @ 12:28pm 
Wait..Guys I didn't have this mod and I didnt have to kill Paarthunax, he just flew away with his dragon friends after you kill Alduin.

AustinS24 Dec 30, 2016 @ 10:55pm 
It worked! Delphine doesnt talk just turn on subtitles. That dragon was oddly too... cute? to kill, I dont know why
AustinS24 Dec 30, 2016 @ 10:47pm 
I hope this works when you are currently on the quest... I may need to go back 1 save
Imair Dec 25, 2016 @ 3:21pm 
Never mind, she does! Awesome!
Imair Dec 25, 2016 @ 3:20pm 
I love that this mod exists, but I have only one problem. I spoke to delphine, but she had no lines? Like, her mouth moved, but no words. I understand how getting someone to voice her lines would be difficult, of course, but does she at least have subtitles? I wanna know what she says
JewelAssassin Dec 21, 2016 @ 7:58pm 
About how far in this quest can you get before this doesnt work? Cause I already talked to the blades, and Paar and havent killed him yet.
Hyouka (氷菓) Dec 19, 2016 @ 2:02am 
aww man.... i should have download this before. is there a way to revive paarthurnax
Shan Wolf Dec 11, 2016 @ 8:45pm 
You might want to put in a note as to when this mod triggers (apparently after the alduin thing) it *does not* trigger before then.
Pitviper Dec 11, 2016 @ 3:41am 
I love this mod. It was so fucking awesome when you talk to delphine, and convince her. The lines were perfect, I loved it when you talked to her in the dragon language and made the gtound shake.

HES SAYIN WHAT WERE ALL THINKIN
PromiserOfDeath Nov 30, 2016 @ 6:10pm 
@RSMercer STFU and take your opnion to a thread.
lupus_hegemonia Nov 29, 2016 @ 3:29pm 
Thxs for the mod, I JUST took this quest and I surrey don't want to kill Paarthurnax!
Korkrag Nov 28, 2016 @ 2:18am 
Nothing wrong with the Blades..... in Oblivion. In Skyrim they are just nasty and unlikeable. Thanks for the Mod.
Arthur, King of the Britons Nov 26, 2016 @ 5:27pm 
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
Koschei Nov 26, 2016 @ 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.
piptayls2015 Nov 23, 2016 @ 10:08am 
yeah ijust dont kil him i take the weapon and armor from the blades and then forget about them
Shmart Nov 20, 2016 @ 6:07pm 
Well I just didn't kill him that's how to not kill him see!
Karl Franz Nov 18, 2016 @ 5:04pm 
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.
