Any of the following files can be edited. Every entry in each file must be followed by a newline. An empty line must exist at the end of each file, unless there are no entries. Adding unnecessary empty lines may result in crashes.


Any characters whose names are included in this file can't be instantly killed.


Any bows with a form id within this file can instantly kill a character. Since the form ids from dlc content can vary, the user will need to add these themselves.


Any hit nodes whose names are included in this file will cause the owner character to be instantly killed. For example, the  head node name for humanoid characters is NPC Head [Head]. If a character's NPC Head [Head] node is listed in dbp_nodes.txt and is hit by a form whose id is listed in dbp_forms.txt, and their name isn't in dbp_actors.txt, then that character will be instantly killed.

Adding New Nodes

The best way to find node names (that have a corresponding collision mesh) is by loading a skeleton.nif into nifskope. Alternatively, one could open the NIF files in a text editor.

Version 0.9.2

This version adds protection against arrows to some unenchanted helmets in the base game. Collision is implemented using a ward template enchantment. As a result, any armor piece with a pre-existing enchantment will not be affected by the mod. To add collision to enchanted armor pieces (not just helmets), one may have to create new collision meshes and then create new enchantments for each variation to replace existing enchantments. This would be a lot of work and will mess up some of the in game enchanting mechanics. If someone does decide to do this, look at the included NIF and DBP.esp in the download as a reference. The NIF file was not properly made - I don't understand the NIF file format very well. You will likely experience bugs/crashes with this release. NPCs still produce blood splatters when the protected node is hit.


Install DLL Plugin Loader.

For version 0.9.1:

  • Place dbp_actors.txt, dbp_forms.txt, dbp_nodes.txt, and dbp_log.txt into the Skyrim Special Edition root folder.
  • Place dbp.dll in Skyrim Special Edition\Data\DLLPlugins. Create the folder DLLPlugins if it doesn't exist.

For version 0.9.2:

  • Extract dbp.7z to the Skyrim Special Edition root folder. If updating from an earlier version, make sure to not overwrite dbp_actors.txt, dbp_forms.txt, and dbp_nodes.txt.
