About this mod

Gives the Daedric Shrine locations in the world of Skyrim functioning shrines, providing Divine Blessings from the Daedric Gods that did not offer them before, as well as adding additional content throughout the various shrine locations to increase immersion.

Permissions and credits

Most of the liturgical and religious locations in Skyrim boast a proper shrine to complement their respective deity and
facilitate communion, however if you happen to be a Daedric Lord or a Deity classified as Daedra your shrine location in Skyrim is going to be missing a proper shrine. As you travel the province of Skyrim you can find a plethora of shrine locations, but only if that location is in veneration of an Aedra god will there be a proper shrine. Out of all of the Daedric gods in Skyrim only one, Nocturnal, has a shrine that actually functions. All of the other shrines apart from Nocturnal do not work or are conspicuously missing. Daedric Shrines attempts to remedy this by making the shrines in these locations functional, or in other cases by adding the missing shrines into these locations. Additionally, In some carefully chosen cases Daedric Shrines also adds additional content that is appropriate for the respective deity to these locations as well, including new quests and expanded locations. The new content has been allocated to already existing shrine locations, i.e. no new shrine locations have been added*, making compatibility an unlikely concern and hopefully providing a more immersive atmosphere, while simultaneously maintaining universal consistency.

New shrines act and behave exactly like vanilla shrines do, providing seamless integration into the world. They cure disease and confer a unique blessing relative to their associated deity. New shrine blessings are different but on par with the vanilla shrine blessings. No new locations have been added*, simply all of the default shrine locations in Skyrim that have shrines that don't work have now been made functional, and shrine locations that were missing proper shrines have been given them.

the shrine will again confer its Blessing when activated.

Shine of Meridia: New

Before and during the quest "The Break of Dawn," the shrine is located in the bowels of Kilkreath Catacombs in the control of Malkoran, so it can initially only be accessed at the end of the quest when you reach Malkoran. After completion of the quest "The Break of Dawn", a new quest, "The Rise of Dawn" will then be initiated after which the altar and shrine will be re-sanctified and relocated to Kilkreath Temple. From that point on the shrine can then be accessed at its new location in Kilkreath Temple at any time.

The secondary, undamaged interior Shrine of Vaermina is available anytime after entry is obtained to the interior of Nightcaller Temple by Erandur.

Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon: New shrine style. Available only after the quest "Pieces of the Past" has been initiated. Before that time the Shrine of Mehrunes Dagon is locked and inaccessible. After the quest the shrine is available anytime.

                            fountain. Available anytime after access has been obtained to Volkihar Castle. 

New content has been added to several locations including Bthardamz, Nightcaller Temple, and most of the other shrine locations in Daedric Shrines, and in some instances such as in Kilkreath Temple the shrine location has been vastly expanded. The content that has been added has been added with very careful consideration to ensure that consistency and an unmodified feel has been maintained, while increasing immersion. 
In addition, other content has also been added in certain instances such as religious icons and paraphernalia, religious banners, holy books, altars, and more. All items and objects have been added seamlessly into the world, and offer no conflicts with either navmeshing, NPCs or quests. New quests have also been added.


*As was previously stated, no new shrine locations have been added, that is with the exception of the New Gnisis
Cornerclub which now has a Shrine of Mephala at that location. The New Gnisis Cornerclub has been expanded and now has a basement area which contains the new secret Shrine of
Mephala, providing the pre-approved local Dunmer inhabitants of the Grey Quarter with a religious outlet.



The new Dunmer shrines that came with the Dragonborn DLC have been given upgraded and enhanced textures by Daedric Shrines, replacing the original low resolution textures with high resolution ones that have significantly improved artwork depictions. These improvements to the Dragonborn shrines include all of the Dragonborn shrines in the game world, including Solstheim, and were created by nickorasu.
