Unofficial Moonpath to Elsweyr Patch

Moonpath to Elsweyr is a very old mod by Muppetpuppet that's close to many people's hearts, myself included. It's been updated sporadically over the years and was ported to SE by the talented Illiani, who maintained it for a while but now appears to have quit modding. However, a number of minor issues with it still remain unfixed, and this patch aims to address those problems.

For a full list of changes, please see the Changelog section. In summary, the patch implements a large number of typographical fixes that slipped through the net when I made my original Moonpath to Elsweyr Typo Patch back on Oldrim, nails Mervar in his correct spot in front of the Tenmar Den entrance, properly categorises Rivercrab Meat as food, tidies up some of the NPC dialogue trees and removes several instances of "Quill of Gemination" - a vanilla Skyrim Quest item that was erroneously added to a couple of Moonpath's cells.

It also prevents the quest from starting and the Khajiit from spawning until "The Way of the Voice" has been completed, as the NPCs in Moonpath repeatedly refer to the player as "Dovahkiin", which does not make sense before this point in the story. When they do spawn, they are shifted across the road from their original location to prevent conflicts with "Carriage and Ferry Travel Overhaul". The patch has also been designed to ensure compatibility with "Legacy of the Dragonborn".

For best results, use this patch on a save which hasn't yet been loaded with Moonpath to Elsweyr installed. Nothing game-breaking will happen if you don't use a new save - you just might have to fast travel to and from Falkreath a couple of times to get the cart to properly update to its new position.

If you're using "Beyond Skyrim - Bruma" and would rather the Khajiit spawn in Greenwood instead of Falkreath, then my Beyond Skyrim - Bruma Moonpath to Elsweyr Synergy Patch (v2.0+) is both compatible and recommended! Just make sure the Bruma patch is sorted below this patch in your load order and that its versions of "MoonpathEnabler.pex" and "MoonpathEnabler.psc" replace this one's.

Let me know if you come across any other problems, and I'll endeavour to fix them as soon as possible!

Mods this Patch Renders Obsolete

The following mods are rendered obsolete by this patch, and should be uninstalled before installing this mod. Trying to play with them and this mod installed will have unpredictable and undesirable consequences.


  1. Uninstall any of the above mods you may have installed.
  2. Make sure you have the latest version of Moonpath to Elswyr downloaded and installed.
  3. Download and install the patch, preferably using NMM or MO.  If you want to do it manually, it should be as simple as dragging and dropping the .esp and script files into your "data" folder.
  4. Enjoy!


  1. Uninstall the patch using your mod manager, or delete the .esp and script files from your "data" folder.  This should safely revert any of my changes back to vanilla.  However, as a rule, uninstallation of mods mid-play-through is not supported by Skyrim, and is a practice that should be viewed with considerable caution.
