About this mod

As a supporter of the Imperials in the Civil War, or someone who made a peace treaty during Season Unending, did Maven becoming Jarl not sit right with you? Well, this mod aims to fix that by replacing Maven with a new NPC who actually cares about Riften!

As a supporter of the Imperials in the Civil War, or someone who made a peace treaty during Season Unending, did Maven becoming Jarl not sit right with you? Well, this mod aims to fix that by replacing Maven with a new NPC who actually cares about Riften!



In the Bee and Barb, you will find a new NPC who doesn't agree with the way Riften is being run. His name is Horik Strong-Hand, a veteran of the Great War. Talk to him and see that he doesn't seem to like or respect Maven.

In Castle Dour, you get to meet the Empire's ambassador to Skyrim, Ambassador Cromwell. He is in charge of Skyrim's political matters. His loyalty to the Empire is strong however, and he will do what is best for the Empire. Maybe if you can convince him that Maven is corrupt, he can do something about it...

Horik, should he become Jarl, is determined to redeem this fallen city, and has chosen a trusted friend to assist him in Riften's management and an honorable warrior to defend him and his subjects.

This mod is fully voiced using xVASynth. No Jarl functionality should be lost by using this mod, as the new Jarl uses a vanilla voice which should easily hook into quests. xVASynth voiced lines are added for quests uniquely given by the Jarl of Riften, such as The Raid, Supply and Demand and Thaneship.
