Sure there's plently of mods as it is allowing you to get around killing Paarthurnax, but those are so simple and boring, you'd rather just use the console to skip it. Why not NOT kill him...In style?


Or kill him, in style?

This is a ground up rebuild of my original extremely broken Real Paarthurnax mod.

The Real Paarthurnax does just that. It's a complete rebuild of my old version of the mod from the ground up and features one quest with two very different options.

To start the quest, go to the gate to Morrowind north of Stendarr's beacon. (Dawnguard is not required and even if you have it, it'll still work). There, you will find a Dragon Priest engaged in combat with a Vigilant of Stendarr, as well as whatever else Skyrim dynamically throws in for you. Right off the bat, you can pick a side and kill the Priest or you can kill the Vigilant and speak with the Priest. The choice is yours. You can then have him go on a jouney with you to slay the dragon Paarthurnax, or kill him for saying such a thing. All depends how cynical you are. Both sides have their rewards, and the whole thing has a solid backstory. You can find this backstory by talking to the priest after going with him to slay the dragon, or on two notes found on the Priests body if you choose to kill him. You'll also get the chance to kill him before, while going to, and after slaying the dragon Paarthurnax at the throat of the world.

FEATURES:
-A five minute quest with rewards that last you the whole game
-A new dragon priest with his own unique mask and loot
-Joining the Priesthood of dragons if you choose the darker side of the quest
-Cringeworthy voice acting for everyone. There is not a single line of silence in this whole mod. Yes, even lines for Esbern who you can show the notes to
-Volsung is a bro

COMPATIBILITY:
-Incompatible with anything that modifies the main Paarthurnax quest (MQPaarthurnax).
-Incompatible with anything that modifies Paarthurnax himself

BUGS:
I've fully playtested this mod and everything works except for the following:
-Odahviing may attack the Dragon Priest atop the throat of the world. To fix, simply use the "Call Dragon" shout and he'll bugger off.
-You may be unable to pick a dialogue option while talking to the Dragon Priest. To fix, simply save, and then load that save.
-If something doesn't work and it looks like it should, leave a comment or PM me; there might be a script missing from the BSA. Be specific on what doesn't work, and I'll look into it and make sure everything is there.
-It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you do not engage the Dragon Priest UNTIL you have started the official Paarthurnax quest.
-Completely uninstall old version if upgrading.

This has been the product of 10+ hours of work, so I hope you enjoy this mod if you decide to get it :)

Be sure to endorse if you like it!

UPDATE: Well, you can all thank Zon over at the Skyrim Workshop and DRThree FOR ACTUALLY TAKING THE TIME TO POINT OUT THAT THE DIALOGUE AUDIO ISN'T PLAYING. I FIXED IT. YOU'RE WELCOME.
I <3 u all.
