Mark of Arkay - Death Alternative

Skyrim Special Edition version available here.


When you lose all of your health, depending on the settings a menu may appear and asks you which one of these items you want to trade to restore your health.if you choose nothing you die.

  • Arkay mark (a dark stone which can be found in the loot)
  • Filled grand soul gem
  • Filled black soul gem
  • Dragon soul
  • Gold

You can disable or change required amount for each item in mcm menu or set it to zero for cheating.
If you disable the menu, items with higher priority will be removed first.
If two or more items have the same priority, one of them will be chosen randomly.
You can change their priority and other settings from the MCM menu.


This mod should be compatible with almost anything except mods that do the same thing or remove the essential flag from the player.

List of known
incompatible mods:

Death Souls
SM Essential Player
SexLab Defeat (if Bleedout is enabled)
Death Alternative - Your Money or Your Life
SkyTweak (if Bleedout is enabled in the Scripts page)


Copy files to Skyrim data directory. start the game and change setting from mcm menu. If you have other mods that change the level list, create a Bashed Patch with Wrye bash.


Stop the mod then remove its files (if you don't stop it your character remain essential), rebuild your Bashed Patch then use a Save cleaner like this to remove scripts from your save file.
