ABCs for Barbarians - Skyrim Edition


This mod adds the book "ABCs for Barbarians" (previously found in Morrowind) to Skyrim, with updated scribbles to reflect the new items of Skyrim.

The book is now available for sale from random vendors, and can also be found in random clutter.

I also placed a unique dead barbarian with the book in the middle of Bleak Falls Barrow.

In keeping with the theme, the dead barbarian also has Frost Salts (from an Atronach), a Bee and Chaurus eggs in his inventory, but as barbarians don't have the attention span to get as far as "D", he met his demise by a Draugr...

I am no artist, but nobody else has created new art and I justify the poor art in-game as drawn by a barbarian - the book is created for and by barbarians. Barbarians don't get any further with their ABCs before being distracted by a good fight.

This book is also a modders resource - can be used in your own mods with notification and appropriate credit.

Change Log:

- added to correct leveled lists (book was not appearing in lists correctly in previous version - now added to cheap book list and clutter book list)
- added facegen data for dead barbarian to prevent gray face issue
- cleaned mod in TES5Edit
- tweaked scribble on Bee's leg
- archived assets as BSA file

- Original release


This mod is compatible with the vast majority of mods.
If you use any mod which changes vendor book lists then for this book to appear for sale you need this mod to be later in your load order, or use Wrye Bash to merge the lists.
Alternatively you can give preference to your other mod (and not see this book for sale) but still find this book on the body of the barbarian found in Bleak Falls Barrow.

If using the book or art in another mod, please provide notification and credit.
This artwork is not permitted for commercial use.

I'm on the same page as "Unoko (pun unintended). Will you be releasing more pages?

I used the spell all over the temple and sactum, sigh I guess I'll have to find it through a vender. Thanks for trying to help :)

His body is down where the draugr are, in one of the corridors. Have you tried using the "Detect Undead" spell to locate the body?
Also, watch out if there's a lot of hectic combat down there and you see things go flying around - as with any item it's possible for there to be a rare engine glitch and for the physics engine to send the body through walls and out of reach. If this has happened then you might need to start another game in order to see him.
In any case you can still find the book for sale (at random) from vendors that would normally sell books.

This mod is really well done. Kind of sucks because it only gets to "C" is for Chaurus Eggs...

The id item for the book depends on your load order - open the console and type "help ABC" and it'll show the code
