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?

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?

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

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)

I would imagine it's because people like this one more? :P

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.

Thank the gods! Finally I don't have to kill my own dragon buddy who helped me beat Alduin in the first place.
Captain Triller_75 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!
ChefCurrie06 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?

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.
UNSC Jedi 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

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.

In vanilla, the blades were nothing but selfish, childish, and just generally insufferable. Bethesda has a habit of beginning engaging plotlines, but never "finishing" them. The Civil War questline was also pretty streamlined, but it at least gave the illusion of choice, even if the most prominent difference is your flag. They didn't flat-out end the questline right then and there for choosing the Imperials. In vanilla, this whole quest was a kick in the nuts. The undone quest for sparing him was just the icing on top.

I might sound mad, but I'm glad. I thank you for creating this mod, it fixes one of my main issues with Skyrim. It's just a shame that you had to program a mod for what should already be there.
cyka blyat Jan 24 @ 7:20am 
the blades are cool but not paarthunax-level cool
pauldanby3 Jan 23 @ 12:13pm 
cool just what i needed to save paarthanax
An option to kill Delphine instead would be nice....
Demanndredd (Sam) Jan 5 @ 3:06pm 
Is this compatible with current savegames?
Torug God-Slayer Jan 1 @ 7:54pm 
Yeah, FUCK Delphine, that stupid cunt! FIRST she steals that damn horn after I fight through coutnless draugr to get it, THEN she makes me make enemies with the Thalmor, AND AFTER ALL THAT, I gotta kill my friendly neighborhood Paarthurnax? I been wanting to do this a loooong time....
Arthmoor  [author] Dec 29, 2015 @ 4:36pm 
As much as I'd like to, I don't speak/read/write any other languages. There are translations available on Nexus but I don't know how current they all are or which languages they are.
[DM]Daelon Dec 29, 2015 @ 12:07am 
please make a translation into other languages,for foreigners replicas do not understand

This mod sounds awesome! 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.)
MA BALLZ!!! Dec 22, 2015 @ 3:04pm 
Thank the lord
May Talos guide you...
Unlimited Overlord Dec 17, 2015 @ 5:49pm 
this is amazing nice
Ragnar'Khan Dec 16, 2015 @ 7:13pm 
perfect, mandatory, epic, THANK YOU!!!!
Not Khorne Dec 14, 2015 @ 9:29am 
This mod made my Skyrim experinece MUCH more better.Why would you kill (almost) innocent dragon?He even helped you so that makes him a good guy, am i right?
Mr_awesome88 Dec 8, 2015 @ 7:22pm 
"Or, well, whatever dragons do when they're perched on rocks looking at each other." best thing about this page you know besides the subscribe button
The Potato Legends Nov 30, 2015 @ 5:40pm 
I'm gonna tell you... I could never bring myself to kill him. Even in the saves that I made an "villain", it just felt so wrong to kill him. Also, good mod.
The Spooky Skyfoogle Nov 26, 2015 @ 1:19pm 
Wow. I'm adding this to my favorites just for that. It was the most cathartic thing I've ever done in a game.
Arthmoor  [author] Nov 26, 2015 @ 1:17pm 
Yes, that was supposed to happen, you have no idea how long that option has been available in the mod and how few people ever try it :P
The Spooky Skyfoogle Nov 26, 2015 @ 1:10pm 
Was I supposed to be able to take off Delphine's head with a mace? Because that's what happened.
syraan Nov 24, 2015 @ 9:35pm 
The mod is glitching and when I start up Skyrim shows that I am not subscribed on the data files and when I go unsubscribe and resubscribe nothing changes?
AFirehouse Nov 23, 2015 @ 6:46am 
transferred from xbox... killed parthy after a literally year of doubt to do the last of the quests available since i had finished everything... now im sad :(
DAONEGAMER Nov 18, 2015 @ 4:03pm 
:( never mind I will just start a new game
