"The fifth sees and opening
His sword is thrust so true
He underestimates the warrior
He takes him for a fool

Magnus saw the blade incoming
And blocked it with his shield
Now the fifths sword and insides
Lay strewn across the field"


The Northern Front is a large, multi-path quest mod where the player buys information from a mercenary contractor and decides them self what they will do with their newly acquired knowledge. There are no quest markers, no obvious hints and no linear "go here, kill this, get this" quests. The player will have to use their wits and skill to make a profit in this shady mercenary business. Everything you would expect to be able to do, you will. Will you gather information, and follow up leads through word of mouth and paper trails? Will you use stealth, infiltration and espionage to work alongside the shadows in achieving your goal? Will you use your charm and sharp tongue to strut your way to a profit? Or will you cleave first and ask questions second, simply cutting down all those who get in your way...

This mod offers all of these paths. All quests have multiple endings and rewards. Decisions you make in some quests will have direct effects on others. You get to truly play as your character would, and not just as the common quest would restrict. This is the main focus of this mod - quests that are original, fun to play and force you to think and decide on the best way to proceed

The mod is largely voice acted due to the help of some very talented actors. I hope you enjoy

Additional esps: simply replace Northern Front.esp with one of the following to activate it

- reduced NPCs will reduce the number of NPCs in the Northern Front camp for a moderate performance boost

- optimizedESP will remove all unecessary NPCs, objects, lighting and decorations from the Northern Front camp for a significant performance boost

Whilst the mod is largely voiced there are still some parts which lack voice acting. This mod is a must if you wish to solve things diplomatically as you will have a lot of talking to do
