About this mod

Modifies the default death sounds of NPCs to make them sound more painful.

Permissions and credits
More Painful NPC Death Sounds

Description: Killing NPCs will now result in more painful and brutal sounds rather than the vanilla sounds they usually make after they die.

In the new versions:
Softer death sounds will play if the NPC is killed when the Player is sneaking.
Death sounds will not play if the NPC is killed in their sleep.
Unique NPCs such as 
Nurelion (The White Phial Questline), Gavros (Winterhold College Questline), Kyr (The Pale Lady Questline), J'Kier (Hircine Questline) and Titus Mede II Decoy (Dark Brotherhood Questline) will not make any death sounds.

Installation/Uninstallation: Install this mod through a mod manager or manually download the mod and place the files into the "Data" directory of your Skyrim Special Edition folder. To uninstall, remove the mod in a mod manager or delete the files in the "Data" directory.

This mod may conflict with mods that edit the DialogueGeneric, as well as the DLC2GenericDarkElf Quests.
