About this mod

Eliminates annoying dialogue that you\'re tired of hearing for the 1,000th time.

Permissions and credits
Update v3
This update removes a few more lines of dialogue (Taarie and Endarie who work at Radiant Raiments in Solitude, and Nelkir the annoying child in Dragonsreach). I've updated the mod description to include the newly removed dialogue.

Update v2
This update removes a few more lines of dialogue. I've also separated the dialogue into two separate ESP files: one for guards (STFU - guards.esp) and one for everyone else (STFU.esp). You can choose to use both or just one. I've updated the mod description to include the newly removed dialogue.

This mod simply gets rid of all the annoying NPC dialogue that you've been tired of hearing over and over again. It mostly affects NPCs in Whiterun, but there are a few others for Markarth and Solitude. This mod includes two separate ESP files: one for guards (STFU - guards.esp) and one for everyone else (STFU.esp). You can choose to use both or just one. Let me know if there are NPCs in other cities that you want to STFU.

Removes the following:
"Come to Dragonsreach to discuss the ongoing hostilities, like the rest of the 'great warriors?'" - Farengar

"I don't claim to be the best blacksmith in Whiterun. Eorlund Gray-Mane's got that honor. Man's steel is legendary. All I ask is a fair chance." - Adrianne Avenicci
"Have you met my father? He's the steward, up at Dragaonsreach." - Adrianne Avenicci
"You know what's wrong with Skyrim these days? Everyone is obsessed with death." - Jon Battle-Born

"Boys, girls, dogs, elders - there's nobody I won't fight!" - Braith
"Gods be praised!" - Eorlund Gray-Mane
"Oh, I'm just a servant, dear. You want to talk to one of the Companions, I'm sure." - Tilma

"I really need to get back to planning my wedding." - Vittoria Vici (Solitude)
"If you're heading to the Blue Palace, you might want to rethink that outfit." - Taarie (Solitude)
"If you ever want to replace those old rags, stop by Radiant Raiment." - Taarie (Solitude)
"I can help with purchases, but if you came to talk, see my sister. She's the one who gets on with people. It's her one virtue, really." - Endarie (Solitude)

"That spell looks dangerous..." - various
"Dear, that spell is making me nervous." - various
"Keep your distance." - various
"Got to thinking, maybe I'm the Dragonborn, and I just don't know it yet." - guards
"Now I remember - you're that new member of the Companions. So you, what - fetch the mead?" - guards
"Is that... fur? Coming out of your ears?" - guards
"So you can cast a few spells. Am I supposed to be impressed?" - guards
"Hey, you mix potions, right? Can you brew me an ale?" - guards

"Wait, I know you..." - guards

Why didn't you shut up Heimskr?!
As the most annoying NPC in the game, that man deserves to die. If I shut him up, you'd just ignore him and let him live. No, the only way to shut him up is to kill him.
