The aim of this mod is to provide a subtle, lore-friendly improvement to the Dragons of Skyrim that makes
encountering one feel more like a boss fight and less like a slightly-more-difficult animal encounter.


Unique Dragon Names
All dragons are individuals with unique names.
A unique tooth can be taken from each one as a trophy.

Deadly Dragon Breath
Dragon fire and frost attacks feel more like the deadly, town-destroying breath of dragons
in most pop-culture mediums, not like mid-to-high level destruction spells.

Increased Variety
A subtle expansion of dragon appearances provides more variety and allows
some of the vanilla boss dragons to feel even more unique.

Installation Options
Three installation options to choose from: Light, Heavy, and Full.

Requirements and Compatibility
Dawnguard and Dragonborn required.
No other mods required.
Fully compatible with all my mods.
A list of compatible dragon mods is included in the description.

Special thanks to I2edShift for giving me permission to use textures from Bellyaches HD Dragon Replacer Pack,
and to Brumbek for meshes and textures from Static Mesh Improvements.

†Dragon varieties added by the Full version of this mod are based on Bellyaches’ texture, so special thanks go to them for this mod
**I recommend installing the version which doesn’t include more powerful shouts as this will stack with ZDra’s Deadly Shouts feature

V1.1 Update
This update has been made to fix bugs. I have tried to make sure the updates can be applied mid-playthrough for people already using this mod, so this shouldn't be an issue. However, installing mod updates mid-playthrough is never 100% safe, so I would advise caution. At the very least, I would recommend uninstalling and making a clean save before updating version (this will cause you to lose any tooth trophies, and you may encounter some dragon names you've already seen). Changes:
- Fixed the bug causing dragons in lairs to spawn with previously-used names and teeth that didn't match
- Updated Drain Vitality dragon shouts in line with USLEEP edits to prevent bugs
- Fixed the typo on Gonhindlah's Tooth
