About this mod

Look like a dragon, walk like a dragon, fight like a dragon, fly like a dragon, die like a Nord

Permissions and credits
This is a port to SSE of the original Skyrim mod Play as a Dragon by Ceruulean
See original page for details.

This mod is a new version of Burning Skies.

REQUIRES Better Jumping SE
REQUIRES Monster race crash fix

REQUIRES SKSE64 (latest)

  1. Install Better Jumping SE.
  2. When you install PlayableDragon, let it overwrite "Data/SKSE/Plugins/BetterJumpingSE.txt" (if you use a mod manager, make sure PD is loaded after BJ.)

The purpose of this mod is to let the player transform into a dragon.There are some perks included but the mod does not force roleplaying or video game progression mechanics (such as a questline to "earn" the power)When the game loads, you will receive a power called "Dragon Form."

you can copy the appearance of any dragon you see (including mod added). Use the "Copy Dragon Appearance" lesser power when near a dragon. Using it again will let you clear the appearance.

Difference from the original MOD
  • Files converted to work with SSE.
