Dragon Under Whiterun

Dragon Under Whiterun
By Brendon FitzGerald

Version 1.4

I am hoping that a big part of the experience is discovering the story and locations, so try not to spoil too much for others. Feedback will be highly valued however, so please feel free to send me your thoughts :)

If you run into any errors, please let me know. If you have used console commands for setting stages, unlocking doors, or disabling objects, I may be unable to determine what the issue you had was caused by.


Dragon Under Whiterun is a single quest that takes the Dragonborn under Whiterun in search of a treasure that legends say is guarded by a dragon. The legends apparently do not have the whole story -- This was an exercise in learning the Creation Kit from scratch, and experimenting with game mechanics and level design, in an attempt to tell a unique story that is tied into the existing lore that we all know and love. The loot is intentionally generous to reward players who are still playing Skyrim.

If you are having trouble with the beginning of the quest, the following video can help you find the first items.


A brand new quest!
A story that ties into the existing lore, as well as introducing some new ideas.
3 new levels.
Roughly 1-2 hours of gameplay, depending on level of exploration and character class.
New Books, Journals and notes to create the narrative.
A new armor item.
And hopefully some experiences you haven't had in Skyrim yet.


- Dragon Under Whiterun only requires the latest version of Skyrim. (As of 9/26/2015,
- It does NOT require any DLC.
- It does NOT require any additional utility mods.
- For some reason, this mod does not work with "Static Mesh Improvement Mod". When I figure out why, I will try to upload a fix

How to Start Dragon Under Whiterun quest

To start the Dragon Under Whiterun quest, go to High Hrothgar (home of the Greybeards), and find and read a book titled "Dragon Under Whiterun" (pictures included above). Upon Entering High Hrothgar, take the first alcove on the right, and there will be a hallway connected to it leading further to the right. The book is located at the end of the hallway on a table under the lit sconce with a light (there is also a lit sconce without a light at the opposite end of the hallway). It is just outside of the Greybeards meeting room with the big table.

What level should you be

The quest is designed to be obtainable when getting to High Hrothgar in the main story, however the mod does not have a level requirement, as the intention was to have it scale with your character like in the regular game.

I am using this mod on Skyrim Special Edition. It is installed and enabled, but there is no book on the table

Fun quest. Gave my character a lot of stuff to sell and use. I liked uncovering the story.
Had to use the console for convenience to carry the weight of all the loot.
Wasn't expecting to be killed by mudcrabs.
