Lore Weapon Expansion (L.W.E) is a project that aims to expand the available weapons found in-game via loot and the crafting menu. All of the included weapons are lore based, meaning they are either based on designs found in previous games (with visual upgrades) or based on descriptions/places/characters mentioned in the series lore.

The new weapons are distributed via leveled lists so you'll come across them during your adventures, some are also craft-able and can be found in the crafting menu once you have the required perks and all weapons can be upgraded too.

The Silver weapons also come with the additional silver effect, so the undead will receive more damage.

All Add-Ons are standalone plugins and do not require Lore Weapon Expansion, though it is highly recommended.

Standard Resolution Textures - Optional lower resolution textures for those that can't/won't use the higher resolution textures included in the main file. All textures match the standard resolution found in vanilla Skyrim.

Daedric Crescent - It is rumored that Mehrunes Dagon reclaimed the last known Daedric Crescent when the Nerevarine left Vvardenfell and has it locked away somewhere in Skyrim.

Goldbrand - A Legendary Katana created by Boethia, it is rumored to be residing in Skyrim.

Relics of the Crusader - It is rumored that the Champion of Cyrodiil left them as an offering to the Divine well travelling through Skyrim.
