Gifts of the Outsider


Imagine if the worlds of Skyrim and Dishonored were merely different realities in the same universe. What if the Outsider, a being beyond worlds, could traverse across these realities? Well this mod explores that idea by bringing the Outsider, the void and Corvos abilities to Skyrim.

Featured on Kotaku and PC Gamer


This mod adds seven of the signature abilities of Dishonored into Skyrim through a quest featuring fully voice acted Outsider.

The spells are as follows:
Blink: Leap across distances instantaneously.
Void Gaze: See in darkness and detect beings through walls
Devouring Swarm: Summon a horde of rats to distract or kill your opponents
Possession: Take control of a being, appearing directly behind them once the effect has ended.
Wind Blast: Blast away your opponents with a powerful gust of wind.
Bend Time: Slow time to a crawl for everyone but yourself. Great for escaping a difficult situation.
Shadow Kill: Enemies caught unaware are reduced to dust when dispatched with a kill move. Dust piles do not arouse suspicion with guards or other enemies.

If you wish to add the spells without completing the quest then simply use the help command from the console menu. Use help “spell name here” to return the spell id. Then use player.addspell <spell id here> to add it.

Walk through

You can begin the quest by heading to abandoned houses on the shores of Lake Honrich, west of Riften. Inside you will find a book, 'Spirit of the Deep', pick it up and you will begin your journey.

Once you have left The Void you will be tasked with finding the runes of power. Here are their rough locations:
Void Gaze - This can be found beneath the walkway to the college of Winterhold
Devouring Swarm - This can be found beneath Riften, in the Ratway tunnels, after the Ragged Flagon.
Possession - Is located on a hill above Falkreath cemetery.
Wind Blast - In the mountains north of Markarth
Bend Time - In the hills north east of Solitude
Shadow Kill - In the volcanic tundra south of Windhelm (See the screenshots for the exact location)

Future Updates

- Bone Charms: I am currently working on these so expect to start seeing them soon!
- Dauds Powers: I am hoping to add a few of Dauds powers from the DLC, such as Pull and Summon Assassin.
- Bloodthirsty: Hopefully I can work a bloodthirsty mechanic into the game.


Thanks goes to the talented Matthew Wade[] for voicing the outsider. Check out his website if you are looking for an excellent voice actor.


This mod has been inspired by the wonderful game of Dishonored. I do not claim ownership over any of the material or ideas featured in Dishonored. I have only used the game as a source of inspiration.


This mod was originally uploaded in May but was prevented from being visible due to 'copyright reasons'. After seeing the mod featured on Steams own news feeds for both Dishonored and Skyrim I thought that maybe they were ready for the mod.

If you are looking for the armor/mark and song used in the video then visit the Youtube page. The video author has included these in the video description.

If you have any suggestions or problems please let me know in the comments.

@DarkestDragon thank you for that warning.

if you have Durable in alteration skill tree for "Possession", it can make you goto a unknown loading screen when using the spell for 6 seconds, just letting everyone know, don't add Durable alteration skill for possession.
