    FAQ Last updated: October 3, 2021

    Please read this before asking any questions. If you feel you have a bug to report, please submit a bug report after verifying that it is indeed a bug and not something mentioned here in the FAQ. Please do not PM me about any issues. I will not respond. That being said, here you will find answers to some common questions and concerns:


    • Version 1.1.1 is the latest version and the most stable.

    "Can you put this on PS4?"
    No. You can thank the suits over at Sony for that one.

    • "The courier isn't delivering the notes to me."
    This is a problem with your save game and needs to be sorted out independently. It is not an issue with the mod. There are a number of reasons why this could be happening, such as mod conflicts, load order issues, just to name a few.

    "So and so isn't appearing! What can I do?"
    First of all, don't panic. It is recommended to play through this mod on a new save, or a save that has relatively few mods active. The Brotherhood of Old is a very script heavy mod, and the Skyrim scripting engine has a hard time keeping up with everything going on when it's under heavy usage from other mods. You can still play this mod on your heavily modded saves, and most of the time you should be fine, but do be prepared to run into issues where certain NPCs aren't appearing, someone's glitching through the ground, you getting stuck because a quest stage is not firing, and so on. You can try running FallrimTools script cleaner on your saves, I've heard that fixes a lot of problems people are having.

    "Nothing happens when I hit Agnar Hollowleg with the Night's Shade Dagger. Is it possible to recruit him?"
    The dagger is designed to not work on him. This is a scripted event that is supposed to fail. Agnar will never join the Dark Brotherhood under any circumstances. Believe me, I've tried to convince him and he wasn't having any of it.

    "Can I install this before I have completed the Dark Brotherhood questline?"
    Yes, you can.

    "Can I use this if I've done the "Destroy the Dark Brotherhood!" quest?"
    No, sorry. It's not possible at this time.

    "Can I use console commands to skip [insert part here]? Can you tell me what the stage ID is?"
    No. You're breaking things. Stop breaking things. If you feel you've run into an issue, make a bug report for the issue you're experiencing. Make sure to include as much detail as possible, including what stage you're currently on in the quest you're doing. I cannot help you if you can't provide me with the necessary information. Please look through the bug reports to see if someone has already reported your issue first, however.

    "This mod adds something in the way of something your mod adds. What can I do?"
    I unfortunately don't have time to make a patch for every little incompatibility there may be. If you run into something, please inform me about it and I will add it to the incompatibilities list. There may already be a patch for your issue. If not, you are free to make and post one yourself. Please let me know if you've done so. Currently there is only a patch for Skyrim Sewers, which you can find here on the Nexus.

    "Why haven't you answered by question? Did you get my PM. PLS RESPOND THX"
    I'm a one man team. I'm handling everything myself. I work a full time job in addition to numerous other projects and obligations. I physically do not have the time or manpower to get back to each and every one of you. There are a lot of you and only one me. Please follow the appropriate steps if you run into an issue before heading to the comments and my private messages. I don't mean to sound rude... that's just how things are. Thank you for the support. I appreciate you checking out my work

    ------

    1.1.1 known issues:

    • There is a Bugthesda problem with the weapon racks in the player home version of Amatius manor. You can put weapons on them but you can't take them back. I've tried all the known fixes and nothing is working. Don't use the weapon racks if you want your weapons back.

    Version 1.1.1 is not compatible with saves that you have already started the mod on. You may also experience issues with saves where you have installed the mod but have not started it yet, but this theory is untested.

    My official recommendation is to only use version 1.1.1 on a save that has not been touched by the mod yet.

    First of all, great mod. I really enjoyed it. Just one thing and I really need help with that:

    Where and how do i get the heart of sithis? I read that you get it for doing a quest but I can not figure out how. Did I mess it up somehow? I got everything else.

    I am using a heavy modded game und with some consoling and reloading I managed to finish the quests several times by now in the search for it. (problems I encountered here are totally my fault and not of this mod). I wanted to ignore it then but I am also a big fan of Legacy of the dragonborn and the unofficial patch for this game. So now there is only one thing missing, I can't get it and it drives me crazy....

    Especially after Auryen from LotD insists of finding the heart and I have no clue how.

    I played it several times, watched youtube playthroughs, seached several sites, consoling it in does not work because it seems to be also some kind of spell. (please don't tell me to find it via xedit or something like that, I have no idea how to mod) I am really desperate right now.

    So please... help -_-

    I am doing the orc quest (an orc walks into a bar) but after he shows the armor as a reward he gets out of Smuggler cave and disappears. Where should I go talk to him?

    I just started Child of Darkness, found Vala's house, it directs to the basement but nothing happens. Vala won't talk to me either. I did run into the house previously, and looted the soldier's bodies (didn't know it was related at the time) did this break the quest? Can I reset the house? Anything I can do to advance the story?

      That probably did break it. I should set the locks to needing a key before the quest starts. Thanks for the heads up. I'm not sure what you could do to fix this other than using setstage commands.

      What setstage commands would work to advance this? Thanks for the great mod!

      All depends on what stage you're currently on.

      happened to me to vala wont talk to me and the quest marker points to the front door and the quests tell me to check out the house so i dont know what stage im at nor the ID so i cant use set stage until i do  i might have to reload an old save but i really dont want to because my last save was before i did the dark brotherhood quest line and it auto saved when i went out of the house after it got bugged

      Yeah I unfortunately couldn't find my stage ID and was forced to either go to a way back save (unfortunately I ran into the house real early) or skip it and do it on a different playthrough. I went with the latter, will try it again then.

      This mod doesn't touch Cicero as far as I know, it should be compatible, but female Cicero ? Why ?

    This is a great mod, it fixes the Dark Botherhood and does so much more, but I really want to know who is telling the truth between Isobel and Camas ? I'm inclined to say Isobel since the children ran towards her and Camas consumes Moonsugar and Skooma

    Edit: I saw the Reddit thing and there is no definitive answer, but finding Moonsugar and Skooma in Camas's tent made me decide Isobel was right

    On the quest "A Family that kills together" in the shack nothing is happening how do I either setstage past it or fix it?

    Really love this mod.
    It'd be even more awesome if the mixed vala/lucien also had this mixed voice after the ritual in general, or perhaps some dialogue options or at least a couple of lines with luciens voice, similar to how she/they/whatever appears after the ritual, so that it makes an actual difference on the character itself, but I understand that that'd probably be a lot of work to implement.

    As cool as this mod is it's just so incredibly buggy. Most of my quest markers don't work. A lot of quests don't progress properly and the whole "save and reload" or "wait a few hours" doesn't do anything. I can't even interact with some of the objects in these quests. It's a hot mess.

    Having an issue with the quest to recruit Azug, we arrive at Markarth and he kills the Khajitt and I get the prompt to go sit at the bar. I do so and Azug says follow me but doesn't do anything or go anywhere. I'm also unable to leave the Silver Blood Inn.
