Legacy of the Dragonborn


The Legacy of the Dragonborn is steeped in prophecy, myth, legend and history itself. Explore forgotten lore and uncover the lost relics of the 7 Dragonborn of the bygone eras of Tamriel. From those merely mentioned in title to those who wielded the power of the voice, many legendary and influential people held the title of “Dragonborn” and they all link to the lost covenant of Akatosh. “Legacy of the Dragonborn” is a MASSIVE addition which will change the way you play Skyrim forever. Meet the curator Auryen Morellus at the museum in Solitude and he will help guide you in your quest to gather the many relics of Tamriel's history as well as provide a fully equipped player home and many many more quests as well. As you display relics you will unlock more history and lore as you encounter new challenges, meet new NPC's and embark to establish your own guild, " The Explorer's Society ".Aim to explore and discover lost places, artefacts and history, Build the guild house from the ground up as the guild master, then recruit new members, each with their own unique backstories and special guild functions. Explore ruins and excavate relic fragments to reassemble into artefacts to display in the museum. Set up a guild store with the quartermaster and much more. Legacy has become a true force to be reckoned with. Try the mod and you will almost certainly make it a centrepiece in most of your playthroughs.

Please note that the central quest hinges on your character being the Dragonborn, so if you choose to use other mods that alter this canonical aspect of Skyrim, it will interfere lore wise with Legacy and possibly mechanically.


Dragonborn Gallery - a large museum building located in Solitude (near the Blue Palace, you can't miss it!) - featuring hundreds of displays for both vanilla items and new treasures added by this mod. The Museum features themed rooms for Ancient Civilisations (Falmer, Dwemer, Ancient Nords), Skyrim's Wildlife, Dark Daedric Artefacts and all the other Oddities you will find on your travels.

The Safehouse - Once you have met the Curator and agreed to work with him, you will unlock a player home with everything you could ever want! The safehouse has all crafting stations from Skyrim, plus a new station the Soul Gem Transmutation forge. All crafting supplies in the museum are linked a the Craftloot system for ease of use. The Safehouse also has a fully equipped bedroom and kitchen, plus extra room that can be upgraded to either a family room or a hangout for your followers.

Craftloot - An intelligent crafting system that stores all your crafting resources locally and puts them all into your inventory on activating one of the crafting stations. A spell is also available to access your crafting storage at will from anywhere.

Hundreds of New Relics - Legacy adds a massive array of collectables to the world, and gives unique textures to some of the more prominent relics of Skyrim. The changes are fully compatible with your preferred weapon replacers provided you load them after Legacy.

A Complex Questline - During your play through you'll uncover the mysteries of the Dragonborn that came before you, collecting their personal artefacts and even having a face-to-face with Akatosh himself! This interweaves with a number of other quests both large and small scale to provide a DLC-sized questing experiences

The Explorers Guild - Bored of the same guilds in Skyrim? We've got you. With a brand new Guild you found yourself known as the Explorer Society. Recruit members, setup expeditions and take advantage of the Guild member's unique skills. All culminating in 3 massive expedition quests with tricky boss battles and breath-taking set pieces.

Maximum Compatibility - Legacy of the Dragonborn has built in support for 20+ mods, plus patches for many many more. See the technical section for full details.

Automatic Display Sorting - If you'd rather not wander through the Gallery looking for the display spot for your new treasures, the Library features an auto-sorter which will scan your inventory and display any items you've collected.

Replica Crafting - Want to use that powerful relic instead of leaving it to gather dust? Craft a replica at the replica station and put the fake on display. This comes in handy later in Questline too!

A New Skill (Archaeology) - as you discover more of the hundreds of dig sites dotted around Skyrim you will advance levels in Archaeology allowing you to turn your fragments into new and interesting relics. Some with special abilities and others just for show. Archaeology also has 3 perk trees independent of the Skyrim perk system for maximum compatibility!
