This is 6.6 and latest version of Nyhus. This mod is navmeshed, voicerecorded (uhum), has four quests and more. It's tes5edited and navmeshed.
This mod and is big enough for three hours of playtime. Expect strong enemies. Expect more land to explore, don't let the Skyrim border stop you. Enjoy a world behind the border of Skyrim.

Once a while I return to put more details on the roads etc...but mainly this mod is finished.

DLC Dragonborn is required to play this version. You also have to unlock the Skyrimborders.


You have to edit the file Skyrim.ini. There are two locations where you can find this file. You should not have the one in your Skyrim data folder, where you put the mods for example, but the one in your General folder (I think it is: User/My Documents/My Games/Skyrim).
If you found the Skyrim.ini file, type: bBorderRegionsEnabled=0 (you can put it anywhere). That should work. I do not use a mod or something, just typed that code.


The centre of this mod is Nyhus ('New House'), a small village, just across the border of Skyrim in the Nort Eastern part of Cyrodiil , guarded by hardened Nordish warriors under leadership of Folkvar the warpriest. There is an Inn where you can drink Riften Blood, the strongest beer in Skyrim, there is a blacksmith and a shrine of Mara. Nyhus has a potentional follower: Karita the Thalmor Slayer . If you talk with Folkvar the Priest, he asks for your help and you'll be on a quest.

It is a dangerous environment. When you reach Nyhus, you see the colonists struggling with a small army of Thalmor Elves - they will attack you too. And a little up north in the mountains, an Ogre Fort is located - yes there are Ogres ! The Ogres are a threat to Nyhus and they are strong (level 25-30). I made Ogres by making Orcs larger, giving them a grey/blue skin and make them look more primitive.

Not only Ogres, also a group of vampires under Mordor's leadership is a real threat to Nyhus. These vampires claimed a small village, ruined the houses, digested the people living there and draining the lifeforce of trees around them. They noticed the adventurers in Nyhus and decided they will be their next victims.

You can enter a dungeon and fight vampires, headless zombies and skeletonguardians, fight some bandits, ghosts and zombiewolves in the forrest and in the badlands, or travel to the Dunmer Pryai village , take the boat to Tel Mithryn (Solstheim) and claim your abandoned playerhouse on an island . If you are tired of your Skyrim-life, you can decide to jump from Dive Rock, after you drank some Riften Blood (worth to try this out!).

Last but not least: you can travel from Tel Mithryn to Morrowind (the continent) by uploading this mod! All you have to do is use your rowboat from your playershouse on a Island south of Tel Mithryn.


- A small shrine with journal just across the border of Skyrim with all the info about Nyhus
- the settlement Nyhus and leader Folkvar with two quests (small and bigger one), and a shrine
- Two new beers, strong stuff
- An Ogre Fort and a small forrest with mammal
- New creatures
- Dive Rock (Oblivion) with a fort and a pelgrim (looks not exactly the same as the one in Oblivion, but it is very high and I think this is a nice Rock to Dive from)
- Dead Village and it's dungeon (vampires, zombies and skeletonguardians)
- Treasure Hunting and lots of bandits and a rotten farmhouse, south of Nyhus. In that rotten farmhouse there is a player's chest.
- Border with Morrowind and the badlands, with a few bandits, wolves, ghosts and traders
- A Dunmer Pryai Village with guards, prison, harbour, shops and inn
- A ship from Pryai Village to Tel Mithryn
- Tel Mithryn has an harbour and shop
- A small island south of Tel Mithryn with a player's home with chest, your own rowboat (to Blacklight, Morrowind!), new weapon, and a little quest and secret with it.
- Terrible voiceacting and stupid jokes.


- You can travel to Nyhus by passing the Frost Troll, southeast of the Rift. Climb up the stairs I put there and follow the path through the snow. You will see a small shrine on your right. In the chest you'll find a journal with all the info and background about Nyhus.

- An other way is travel to the border of the Rift/ Morrowind, pass the gate and walk a while. Keep the mountains on your right until in a snowy environment you see a huge pinetree. There is a passage on your right (south). You will see the border Morrowind/Cyrodiil on your right and enter Nyhus form the south. But then you'll miss the journal with the info.

These two passages to Nyhus are marked on the Skyrimmap. No teleports, just travel and cross the border of Skyrim, and notice the changing landscape.

An other way is:
- To take a ship at the small harbour (!) of Tel Mithryn which goes to the Dunmer Pryai village (named after the river Pryai) in Morrowind, close to the border of Cyrodiil. From there you can travel to Nyhus and enter it from the south.


I did some voicerecording and scripting, for example with Folkvar the Priest. If the conversation doesn't start, save the game and reload it. That should work.


No, don't worry. This mod is tested so many times and doesn't conflict with other mods, like guarded borders of Skyrim. This mod is also cleaned with TesVedit. But....if you run into errors, please let me know.
This mod is not LODded, since I don't dare to LOD the Skyrim master file.
There could be some grammar mistakes; I am sorry. I am Dutch, not English.


Enjoy a world behind the borders of Skyrim. I put a lot of time in making "Nyhus and the Cyrodiil border" and already enjoyed it very much, hopefully you'll like it. And thank you for downloading and playing this mod.

Don't drink and dive & may Talos guide you;
