Hello and thank you for viewing this mod!
Improved Bards is the first part in a planned series of mods where I will be changing the appearance of bards, hirelings, and housecarls. This is my first time modding for a game, so please bear with me as I learn the ins and outs of modding! Also, please leave lots of feedback (and tips/tricks) if you can. I really want to do whatever I can to improve.



Hearthfire edition is up!

The male version of the mod is uploaded!

PLEASE NOTE: Mikael and Sven may have a small neck gap. If you notice one doing the following:

open the console
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
