'Harry Potter' And 'Dark Souls' Come To Skyrim
Many Skyrim mods seem geared at making the female characters as sexy as possible, but at least a few of them are actually pretty cool.
Take the School of Witchcraft and Wizardy mod, which brings a Skyrim-style Hogwarts to the game, replete with hundreds of new spells, familiar Harry Potter NPCs, and new areas to explore.
NPCs have had their names tweaked, but many of the characters from the JK Rowling books are present in the School, many of whom will sell you spells.
Of course, you might want to equip a flying broom first, which you can get via the Flying Broom mod.
Harry Potter, My Little Pony…all sorts of fictional universes have been modded into the fabric of Skyrim.
Even better, the Elite Knight armor set mod brings the flavor of Dark Souls to the Bethesda RPG (if not the combat….) The mod’s creator plans on recreating other sets as soon as he’s finished up this one.
The Elite Knight set remains one of my favorite in the game. It’s not the fanciest or the most colorful or the lightest or the strongest, but it’s a great balanced set that looks fantastic.
What mods have you seen recently that are especially neat? I’m still on a quest to find a really decent combat mod. The ones I have tried so far are decent but not good enough yet.
P.S. If you go with the Elite Knight armor, you should also check out this ring mod which brings many of the Dark Souls rings into the Skyrim universe, as well as their powers. While there are many excellent rings, don’t expect to go ninja-flipping around any of Skyrim’s dungeons; there is no Dark Wood Grain Ring included in the mod. C’est la vie…
