Skyrim Mod: ‘The Shire’

I’m working as a quest/story designer and book writer for a mod for Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, in which an enthusiastic team attempts to create a world inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Shire.


My tasks in this team are:

  • design a compelling story in two directions: one good and one evil path
  • write multiple quest lines for these paths, as well as numerous tiered side quests
  • create major and minor characters in the mod’s storyline, as well as advise on character creation by others
  • write dialogue for the NPCs and compose dialogue options for the player
  • ensure that the mod’s world remains in spirit to J.R.R. Tolkien’s writing
  • write books with background stories and folk tales for the players to read, intended to bring the mod world more alive


The Mod is working towards a beta release scheduled in May 2017.
More information on the project can be found on Nexus Mods and on TES Alliance.

Here is a recently released trailer for the mod:
