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.

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 Aedric 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.

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.

New content has been added to several locations including Bthardamz, Nightcaller Temple, and most of the other shrine locations in Daedric Shrines, and in certain instances such as with 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 simultaneously increasing immersion.
In addition, other content has also been added in certain instances such as religious icons and paraphernalia, religious banners, holy books, altars, etc. All items and objects have been added seamlessly into the world, and offer no conflicts with either navmeshing, NPCs, or quests. To compliment the new content, 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 authorized local Dunmer inhabitants of the Grey Quarter with a religious focal point.

**Kilkreath Temple will become cleaned up and repaired after the quest "The Rise of Dawn' has been completed, and the exiled priests of Meridia will return. The priests of Meridia will live and complete their daily routines inside the temple,  and offer their services as well. There is a Restoration trainer and an apothecary available to the player. There are sleeping and dining areas, as well as safe storage available. The enemies inside the temple will no longer respawn.

***A version that does not contain any added quests and limits the added content is also available. This version is the same as the main file, but has no new quests and no expansion of Kilkreath Temple. Kilkreath Temple does not get cleaned up at any point in this version, nor are there any new or added areas to Kilkreath Temple. The purpose of this version is to provide a more vanilla style option for anyone who wants to have the improvements offered by the shrines and at the same time keep as much of the game as possible unmodified.


The Dunmer style shrines introduced in 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 encompass all of the Dragonborn shrines in the game world, including Solstheim.

Daedric Shrines is safe to install at any time. Thanks to all the supporters.
