Permissions and credits

Enderal is a Total Conversion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - that is, a new game based on Skyrim's core architecture, game-play, engine, and assets. It has been in the making for 4 1/2 years, with over 30 000 hours of work, on a completely non-commercial basis. It runs independently from Skyrim and provides a completely new game-experience with a new land with it's own lore and different biomes, deeply overhauled game-play and a professionally voiced story-line with a dark and mature narrative. Depending on your play-style, Enderal has between 30-120 hours of playing time.

Enderal and its DLC "Forgotten Stories" are now only available on Steam! This version on the Nexus won't receive any updates and therefore got removed!

  • An entirely new land with different biomes: Explore the lush forests of the Heartland, the wide meadows of the Suncoast, the tropical coasts of the Powder Desert or the snowy heights of the Frostcliff mountains. And many more.

  • A unique, dark and psychological main narrative with twists and turns and over 30 hrs. of playtime

  • Several side-quests and two guild quest-lines 

  • Over 30 hrs. of professionally voiced dialogue, both in German and in English. Featuring renowned voice actors such as Annina Braunmiller-Jest (German voice of Kirsten Stewart), Till Hagen (Kevin Spacey) and Bernd Vollbrecht (Antonio Banderas) for the German version, and English actors such as Lani Minella (Skyrim) or Dave Fennoy (Starcraft 2, The Walking Dead)

  • Over 4 hours of newly-composed soundtrack: Battle tracks, exploration tracks, character themes

  • Multi-faceted, believable characters, including two fleshed-out, romance-able companions with their own, unique quest-line

  • An arsenal of new assets, ranging from photo-scanned vegetation to new buildings, armory, weapons and creatures.

  • A completely overhauled leveling and skill-system with experience points and classes: Build your own, unique class by combining nine sub-classes that each represent a different playing style

  • New, class-specific and animated "talents" that replace Skyrim's dragonshouts and can be combined for a maximum effect: Throw the Vagabond's oil bottles to make your enemies slip on them to ignite them with the Rogue's "Fire Arrows".

  • New hand-crafted or motion-captured animations for special cut-scenes, dances, or attacks

  • Bards with over 10 newly-composed ballads and folk songs, performed by multiple different artists

  • Re-balanced combat aimed at core-gamers

  • Various external localization teams are busy working on translations into their language. If you want to help them out or just want to check if they are finished translating Enderal into your language, you should check out the respective wiki page.

First and foremost: Do not expect a fully bug-free experience! 

Simply head over to Enderal's Steam page and download it. The only requirement is that you own Skyrim Classic on Steam. However, it is not necessary to have Skyrim installed. The Skyrim DLCs are not required. Skyrim SE is not supported.

Enderal does not interfere with your modded Skyrim installations. It is handled like an independent game on Steam.

Even though our core team was very small, Enderal was made possible by the great work of many people and modders. See Credits.txt in release version, as well as credit video. We tried to very meticulously keep track of every resource we used, but should we have used your resource and have not put your name into the credits, please tell us so by shooting us an eMail to [email protected] or [email protected].

Feel free to mod Enderal as you see fit! No need to ask for permission. Only if you intend to use Enderal assets for Skyrim mods, shoot us an eMail or private Message first - not all of the assets are self-made and some thus may only be used in Enderal.

Thank you to Paul and Tom from nexusmods!
