Invasion of Skyrim - The Force Awakens



Invasion of Skyrim is a massive overhaul to the entire world of Skyrim. Set in a crossover universe, Nirn has been invaded by none-other than Thrawn, the secret Grand Admiral of the Galactic Empire. 

However, Thrawn has no space-ships. No fancy laser rifles. Armed with his elite unit and Force sensitive specialists, he's here under the false pretense of a new race arriving from elsewhere on Nirn, hoping to uncover the extreme powers this planet houses deep inside itself. Having already been contacted by the Daedric Prince, Hermaeus Mora, and accepted the dark pact offered to him, Thrawn has become a nearly invincible power.

What hope does Tamriel have against this evil?

The answer comes in the form of the invaders. The proud "
Etok", Special Forces of the Imperial Armada, have defected from Thrawn and formed a Resistance. Based on a remote island far north of Solitude, the Resistance has been waging a background war with the Imperial Armada for over 25 years! 

From utilizing masterful Con-Artists such as Flim to wage propaganda war, or talented warriors such Command Sergeant Morki, or powerful psionic mages such as Specialist Wez, the Resistance stands a strong chance... if only they had the right leader for the job! 

Their General, Draqh, has been searching tirelessly for a fabled hero of Skyrim to come forth. If the ancient legends are true, the time of the hero is nigh....

Over 100+ types of enemies, all with unique abilities and weaknesses, from the brutish Tanks that don't feel pain, to the Rogues that walk in shadows, to the Purifer that disintegrates undead. Even friendly and corrupt Force users wander Skyrim, key to winning the war!

Dangerous images of your allies will be conjured up. These alternate forms of what your closest friends used to be are among the most dangerous apparitions.

Even more deadly images exist of Grand Admiral Thrawn himself. Eight tiers of Images of Thrawn exist, each exceedingly more powerful than the last. Finally, Grand Admiral Thrawn himself stalks the lands of Skyrim. If he recognizes you as a Resistance soldier, you better be able to flee.....

Gameplay Details and a Player's Expectation:

Invasion of Skyrim is a very difficult mod. Walking a fine line along the balance-scale, players should be very familiar with Skyrim and it's base game mechanics. Here's a list of things the player should be comfortable with:

  • The player will need to know how most dungeons and puzzles work
  • The player will need to specialize in most forms of Magic, Combat or Stealth trees
  • The Player will need to accept defeat from time to time, learning when it is best to retreat and save lives for later battles
  • The player will need to be prepared for deadly ambushes at any time, in any place
  • The player will need to be prepared for Imperial Chiss that have set up bases inside the old tombs and dungeons across Skyrim
  • The player will need to be flexible, as every playthrough yields different results
  • The player will need to be prepared for dangerous and decisive enemies that scale with them
  • The player should be prepared to duel Chiss for items such as Dawnbreaker, Words of Power, and other such things
  • The player is expected to have a Follower along with them for a large part of the game
  • The player is expected to have some form of "second wind" mod like Death Alternative

This is the 3rd anniversary release for Invasion of Skyrim - Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Invasion of Skyrim has gone through many, many growth spurts in it's lifetime. Multiple beta releases on Steam Workshop turned into a Beta release on Nexusmods.com, which, with loving input from the fanbase, evolved into version 1.0 in March!

Since March 2014, Invasion of Skyrim has mutated in a thousand different ways, and is in no way similar to how it originally released. Worldspaces have come and gone, NPCs have evolved and your decisions matter even more than ever! Thousands of dialogue options to choose from when interacting with characters, all set in a massive crossover war between The Elder Scrolls and Star Wars!

Invasion of Skyrim is my largest project I've ever taken on in my life. I've poured over 2,500 hours into it's development, sometimes just to rip it all apart and start over. The tireless work I've put into this mod kept me sane during my year away from the working world. I'm proud to say that I have much to show for my efforts, and I am sharing it all once again with you, fellow modders!

Final Note from the Author


This mod is not a team of people at work. It's literally just me. This mod is a hobby of mine that I developed during my depression, and is the something that I worked on every single day, from 6 am to 11pm usually.

Invasion of Skyrim plays like a complete DLC addon. There is a staggering amount of content, but in no ways am I finished with it. I love this mod, I love the work I've done with it, I love the people I've met and talked with along the way, and I will continue to breathe life into Invasion of Skyrim - Grand Admiral Thrawn for a long time to come!
