Hello and thank you for viewing this mod!
Improved Bards is a replacer mod for the performing bards around Skyrim.



***A single esp is now available!***


She is the new redguard bard available for Riften.

PLEASE NOTE: Mikael and Sven may have a small neck gap due to their weight being changed. If you notice one, please do the following:

open the console
click on Mikael or Sven
type 'setnpcweight=50' (for Sven) and/or 'setnpcweight=40' (for Mikael)
then type 'disable'
followed by 'enable'


It is completely standalone, meaning no other mods are required to run it. You can use it with whatever appearance mods you have, it should not have an impact on the way they look. Additionally, the characters changed with this mod are only the singers/performers in the inns and Talsgar, the wandering bard. I have no plans to change the College bards at this time.

Files will include:

-Vanilla female bards
-Vanilla male bards
-Hearthfire bards
-(Possibly) An added bard for Riften
