Longclaw-A Hand And A Half Sword Mod


Thanks to GrimyBunyip, ( You can now temper and enchant, Longclaw, and retain the enchantment. Each one can hold a different enchantment and tempering level so i recommend increasing them both at the same time for immersion or not you call. WHEN UPDATING PLEASE HAVE LONGCLAW THE ONE HANDED IN YOUR INVENTORY, OR NEITHER.


This mod will add the sword Longclaw, from George R.R Martins epic fantasy a “Song Of Ice And Fire” or for those following the HBO series, “A Game Of Thrones”. Unlike other weapon mod's this will allow the user through the use of SKSE to swap from a one handed grip to a two handed Grip.


A great tutorial be gopher on how to install


First Of all you will have to collect the book “Valyrian Smithing” from the counter in the shop Warmaiden's in Whitreun. Then read the book (Hope that was obvious XD). This will give you the perk that will allow you to smith Valyrian weapons. Head to the smelter and using a mixture of items create your very own Valyrian Steel Ingot.

Head to the misc section of the forge and create the parts of the sword. Blade, cross-guard, grip pommel and scabbard. Take your parts to the steel section and assemble into one sword.


When you first craft the sword you will have the "Longsword" version equipped, when you swap to the two handed version you will have the "Basterd sword" version.

Once again:
Longclaw (Longsword) = One Handed
Longclaw (Basterd Sword) = Two Handed

The default key for swapping from one handed to two handed is the key:


This can however be change if you have the Mod Configuration Menu (MCM) from the SkyUi team installed. Which I highly recommend. (Get it here To change the key simply navigate to the "Longclaw" Section and select the key you want it to be mapped to.

When you have the sword in hand just hit the key to swap to the other version. Simple but it gives a greater tactical advantage.


First Install SKSE:

Get it here

Then Install SkyUI:

Then choose an installation method:

Nexus Mod Manager:

Easy, just hit the download with manager key and then in the manager click to install.


Manual Install:

Extract, copy the files to the Skyrim data folder, such as the meshes to the meshes folder and so on when asked to merge select yes to all, then in the launcher select the longclaw.esp and you should be finished.

If you want to change the damage, speed etc of the weapons, open up the .esp in the creation kit, and search for longclaw, open up the *WEAP form and change the game data. Save the .esp and your done.

If you take any screenshots please upload them,if you have any improvements please structure them as constructive criticism, and if there's and bugs, please no "Hurr Durr this broke my game your worse than hitler and the devil roled into one". Clear and concise please.

Cheers and enjoy


With GREAT THANKS to GrimyBunyip he practically wrote all the coding with me just writing the PSEDO code and he also created the MCM Menu, PLEASE CHECK OUT HIS MODS HERE AND ENDORSE OR DOWNLOAD THEM PLEASE!!!

I dont watch GoT myself, but I think this is a great mod for anyone who wants to train two and one handed and cant be bothered with carrying multiple weapons around.

it would be great if you did the same type thing for the rest of the famous valyrian swords such as ice, oathkeeper, dark sister, blackfyre and maybe the dagger used in the attempt on brans life. I know it's a lot and these are only suggestions but it would be great to see some of my favorites like ice and dark sister brought to skyrim in such a great way!

Really cool mod, I enjoyed the crafting and use of longclaw, but for some reason, i am unable to swap from 1h to 2h, but thats probably a problem on my side. Great mod and well done.
