About this mod

7 part quest to go alongside the SWC and The Way of the Force mods while playing the game's vanilla story quests. Completely revamped Lightsaber crafting system bringing it more in sync with Skyrim and making Lightsabers difficult to craft and obtain. This makes Lightsabers much more on par with how they would actually be in the world of Skyrim.

About the Mod and My Objective

Since I was a kid, I’ve loved Star Wars. I’ve enjoyed fun entertaining games from the franchise over the years, but no game has quite given me the experience of “feeling” like I’m a Jedi within the world of Star Wars. My dream has always been to play a game like Skyrim but Star Wars. 

I was inspired May 4th, 2020 by Pande4360 for making and releasing the SWC mod which will be linked below. After seeing his reddit post and following his release, I discovered the other amazing mods that have already been created for Skyrim, like Lord Haun’s Magicka Sabers as well as the Force Powers from the Use the Force or The Way of the Force mods. There were so many amazing fun tools at the player’s disposal in order to roleplay a Star Wars experience… all except one! The one thing that was lacking was a solid questline of some sort that would let you, the player, feel like you were actually adventuring, seeking and questing to build your lightsabers and become more and more powerful. 

This is my first major quest mod I’ve created for Skyrim. I consider this a very big WIP, so please be patient with me! By prefacing with this, I am releasing this mod as a rough draft of sorts, so you, the player, can let me know your thoughts and opinions. I welcome all feedback that is optimistic and looking to make this quest mod better and more fun for everyone. For example: Are the quests a good length? Too hard? Too easy?

If there are any other modders out there, specifically experienced with quests, that would like to help out, then please DM me! I’m open to having anyone join the team that wants to create an amazing nostalgic Star Wars experience we've all been wanting to play for years.

Planned Future Features and Fixes

  • ALL NPC's with fully voiced dialogue.
  • The light side and dark side - WIP - I might branch down an alternate Sith quest line in the future depending on the interest with this quest mod. 
  • Temper recipes that will actually allow the player to break down and recycle old Lightsaber components
  • Create a separate Jedi and Sith robe quest line
  • Eventually tier the Lightsabers so that more advanced higher tier Lightsabers don't cost the same materials as lower ones.
  • All models will be recreated and resized to a realistic size that would make sense for them to fit into a Lightsaber
  • Working on full length reverse Lightsabers
  • Add more storm troopers/droids with blasters
  • I will continue working on The Way of the Force quest. As it stands now The Way of the Force quest only goes up to the point of finding the follower companion HK. That along with the force powers, is all that the previous designers of this mod finished and released.


Highly Recommended

I STRONGLY recommend playing this as a new play through. This quest was designed and is being expanded on the idea that the player starts it as a fresh start in the game. It will take you through many dungeons and areas that may have been altered by a previous play-through which could cause undesirable effects on the quest, water down and maybe even break the experience. While this quest should be started on a new play-through, you may not be able to play it all the way through without branching off and playing other quests and parts of the game and leveling up first. This is also designed to be played alongside “The Way of the Force” quest mod, as that will provide Force Powers to the player.

I play Skyrim in VR now. I was inspired to do this mod because of my fantasy to feel like Jedi in VR. I'd recommend playing this in VR.
