The Forgotten City

The Forgotten City is the first mod in history to win a national Writers' Guild award, and offers a unique 6 - 8 hour experience: a murder mystery investigation set in an ancient underground city. You'll need to solve it using your wits, and the ability to travel through time. It has a dark, non-linear story in which you'll interrogate suspects, explore the city and its many secrets, and navigate challenging moral dilemmas. It features multiple endings, an original orchestral score, and high-quality voice acting.

"Amazing... it's a super dynamic story... how the mod utilizes paradoxes and time loops is fantastic... one of the most thriling quests we've ever played..." Brodual

I absolutly love this Mod and the story line and DLC is just great and fun. Plus I figured out how to leave the DLC pretty quick with a single conversation.

This is, without exaggeration, a far more engaging quest narrative than anything in Skyrim or its DLCs. It's so flawlessly executed, haunting, and brilliant that I can't bring myself to revisit it for fear of tainting my memory of my original experience. Play it, it's well worth it.

So ... just jaw-droppingly awesome!!!
Still going to try to be vague so not to ruin it for anyone. I found out the cause of the problem and informed the husband, then realized he would cause the problem by breaking the law, so I ran and talked to the big guy down below and my ending reflected EVERYTHING I did. Just amazing work!!! I was so blown away when they commented on the husband's actions and mine both. Stellarly done!!!
