New Trailer

Civil war has tainted the lives of many. Drugs are ruining the land and gangs have been formed. Orphans in the streets of Riften have turned bitter without proper leadership and values they turned to drugs and a life of crime forming the Kings of the Rift. So many have died in the Civil war leaving prominent families broken and torn apart in Solitude. Many citizens in Solitude became bitter towards the empire. Many citizens of Solitude got tired of working hard labor and quit their jobs and turned to drugs, necromancy and other crimes that's how the Mystic Phantoms were formed! War Heroes and mercenaries, natives of the land have also rebelled against the empire they believe they do so much for their government and their government does nothing for them! these mercenaries and war heroes got fed up with the rules of the empire and couldn't get used to the regular lifestyle they used to live before going to war that's how the Nordic Brotherhood was born. Skyrim will never be the same now that new gangs have emerged from the difficulties, and civil wars in Skyrim which has left so many torn apart. New gangs and drugs are coming into Skyrim, the corruption is growing and the murder rate is rising, Skyrim is now more dangerous than ever.

Basic Details
This mod brings more action and fun to Skyrim. This mod adds 6 gangs to Skyrim each claiming their own turf in Skyrim. This mod introduces gang wars, and drugs wars! It also adds 7 new quests and NPC’s that you can speak with and tell you about their experience and challenges with the former Gangs of Skyrim. Meet Pandora in Frost Flow Lighthouse she will be your greatest source of Intel. Pandora got into some trouble with the Nordic Brotherhood, and it's up to you to save her!

Immersion This mod gives you choices, the gangs and gang wars are ongoing! but will you help eliminate the threat from the major cities and eliminate the main leaders to bring order and justice to Skyrim. Or will you have mercy on the leaders, Captains and associate of the gangs! will you save Pandora and bring justice to her family? it's all up to you! you can let them live or go to war with them. Will you try and be the hero and go into the gang's territory and try to bring them down by yourself? or will you recruit allies to help you face the new threat? The new gangs are extremely dangerous some are more organized than others and the leaders and associates in the city blend in with the crowd. In the city they try to be discreet and not attract to much attention on them since they are organized, they do most of their business in secret. But when differences and challenges are met the gangs settle their differences on the battlefield. Skyrim is not the same now, Skyrim is a great land of opportunity and gangs have been formed and are hungry for power, the Imperials are currently going to war with the Mystic Phantoms and are trying to drive them out, and the Solitude city watch has put a bounty on the Leader of the Mystic Phantoms and it's up to you to bring him down because he has the city guards under his pocket. Rival gangs are also going to war with each other will you defeat the main leaders of all the rival gangs or let them live? the choice is up to you!

This mod is not required but I personally recommend this mod!

The combat you experience in this mod will be unique from other mods, If you favor the bow then you will get your archery fix with this mod! this mod gives you plenty of opportunity to use your bow on multiple enemies. When going into battle or stepping into a gangs territory make sure you have a companion with you, because chances are you will not survive alone. The Nordic Brotherhood can usually be found in all areas of Skyrim since they are natives of the land, they act like everything belongs to them! the Brotherhood tend to use Nordic Weapons and destruction magic. The Mystic Phantoms tend to use a lot of magic but they aren't limited to the destruction school like the Nordic Brotherhood they also use conjuration and summon creatures to fight for them. The Mystic Phantoms have the most sophisticated weapons, they often use Daedric weapons making them one of the most prominent gangs in Skyrim! the Gangs are set to respawn but remember if you kill any of the main leaders, captains, advisers etc they will not re-spawn! Now the Mystic Phantoms tend to stick towards the northern region of Skyrim and near Solitude. The Kings of the Rift will rarely step outside of the Rift for their own safety. They have claimed the Rift as their turf and if any other gangs steps into their territory they will be killed on sight! The Kings of the Rift are currently at war with the Nordic Brotherhood who are constantly trying to take over the Rift, but the Kings keep driving them out. The Kings rarely use magic when going into battles they use swords, axes, and bows nothing too fancy, the Kings lack the resources the Mystic Phantoms and the Nordic Brotherhood have. The Riverwood Assassins tend to favor the bow and tend to use Glass bows and daggers and other sorts of weapons, the Spriggans also aid them in battle, as the Riverwood Assassins have a close connection with nature. The Riverwood Assassins rarely venture out of their land they can be found in Riverwood and also live deep in the woods South of Riverwood. The Crimson blood Assassins use destruction magic, conjuration spells and usually favor scimitars, and dwarven weapons. They are becoming wealthy selling moon dust in Skyrim and are becoming a major threat to other gangs they are currently at war with the Black Knights and the Brotherhood. The Crimson Blood Assassins can usually be found in South Skyrim, usually they don't venture deep into the North unless they have business there. The Black Knights were pushed back by the Riverwood Assassins they can also be found in South Skyrim near the border of Hammerfell, the Black Knights don't use magic at all, they use their own orcish weapons and armor. Skyrim will never be the same now that new gangs are on the rise, and constantly killing each other over drugs, gold and the land.

New Gang Wars, Drug Wars.
6 New Gangs, 7 New Quests (Gangs are set to respawn.)
New Books and letters.
More Action and Immersive gaming.

New in 1.2 Mythic Shadows
The Mythic Shadows is a new faction in Skyrim that you can join. The Mythic Shadows are highly trained assassins, they are masters of the blade, the best of the best. The Mythic Shadows are a secret organization and control part of the black market in Skyrim! The Mythic Shadows are currently at war with the Nordic Brotherhood the, the Kings of the Rift, and the Mystic Phantoms. There is different ranks in this association a Shadow is an individual who still has much to learn and is still proving himself to become accepted and admitted into the inner circle. A Shadow Warrior has completed the oath and has proved himself to the association he is trusted and highly respected. Shadow Masters are trainers and mostly war heroes, veterans who have gained much experience in battle mostly elders, they are rarely seen and highly respected. The final rank is Mythic Shadow they are leaders, commanders and considered by many to be Master Minds, only a few, and only the best get to become a Mythic Shadow.

The Nordic Brotherhood
The Brotherhood is one of the strongest gangs in Skyrim, they are Natives of Skyrim. Most members of the Nordic Brotherhood are war heroes and mercenaries that have rebelled against the Empire and live by their own set of rules. The Brotherhood is involved in many crimes but is most active in the drug trade business. They consider themselves the best organization in all of Tamriel and have no allies! The Brotherhood is the largest and most influential Gang in Skyrim. The Nordic Brotherhood is very ambitious and have grown from a small time gang to a vicious army they want to conquer all of Skyrim and rule it with an iron fist!

Mystic Phantoms
The Mystic Phantoms is a group of trained assassins which was formed in Solitude. They rebelled against the empire and are highly organized. The Mystic Phantoms are involved in all sorts of crimes but they are mostly involved in the drug trade business and the prostitution business. Most Mystic Phantoms are well educated and come from prominent families. They have a deep appreciation for magic and have a deep connection with the spiritual realm. They also have a deep connection with the dark spirits of Skyrim and are involved with Necromancers, Dragon Priests etc. They are constantly studying the spiritual realm and believe in the spiritual truths that are far beyond the human intellect.

Kings of the Rift
The Kings are a group of organized bandits; they are very dangerous and have claimed the Rift as their turf. The gang was born in Riften! The Kings of the Rift are highly active in the drug trade business and mostly deal skooma. The Kings are very hungry for power but fail to compete against the more prominent gangs in Skyrim such as the Nordic Brotherhood and the Mystic Phantoms. They lack proper leadership and discipline! Most of the Kings are high drug consumers and are very reckless in nature; they will steal and kill anyone not caring about the consequence or penalties! Most Kings have no remorse or sympathy and only care about themselves.

Crimson Blood Assassins
The Crimson Blood Assassins are a group of trained Assassins from Hammerfell. They are one of the most strongest and talented warriors in all of Tamriel. Hammerfell is going through a financial crisis, and to receive more gold the Crimson Blood Assassins have established a large drug ring in Skyrim. The Crimson Blood Assassins are trafficking, a new drug into Skyrim called Moon Dust, which is the purified version of moon sugar. Moon Dust is one of the strongest drugs in Skyrim, it has high healing abilities, and users who have used this drug go into a trance and feel numb to pain. The Nordic Brotherhood and the Black Knights hate the Crimson Blood Assassins as they are stealing much profit from them! And have failed to give them a percentage. As a result The Crimson Blood Assassins are getting hammered in Skyrim, the Black Knights and the Nordic Brotherhood have sworn to eliminate them on sight and drive them out of Skyrim.

Riverwood Assassins
The River wood Assassins are generally peaceful; the gang was formed in Riverwood. They mostly come from a poor background and fish and hunt for a living, most citizens consider them as Savages. The River wood Assassins have a deep appreciation for nature and most of them live deep in the forest near Riverwood. They also have a close connection with Spriggans and these creatures are known to aid them in battle. The Riverwood Assassins are peaceful but they are very jealous of their land, and have been harassed frequently by other gangs such as the Nordic Brotherhood and Black Knights. In return they have killed many of them, and now they get really paranoid and tense when outsiders come into their land, they have killed many innocent people who have invaded their land mistaking them for bandits.

Black Knights
The Black Knights are very aggressive and repulsive; they love being in battle and are very strong. The Black Knights are active in the drug trade business! They have tried to invade the Riverwood Assassins but have failed. Many Black Knights were murdered on sight, and after waves of battles, the Black Knights settled near the border of Hammerfell. The Black Knights are mostly Orcs and they are currently at war with the Crimson Blood Assassins.
