Skyrim: The Forgotten City

Player made content at its finest.

I've been getting back into the Elder Scrolls: Skyrim as of late and this post is a review of a stand alone Community Mod called "The Forgotten City", and it is currently the best quest mod I have tried to date.

The Lake house.

What starts as something pretty low key with a simple request to find someone's missing brother in some old dwemer ruins becomes a very cool and interesting quest. Each NPC has decent voice actors, the maps are well designed, and there's even one custom music track for it. If you are the thorough type, then it will probably keep you busy for a good number of hours.

The best thing this has going for it though is the story, which has multiple possible endings and I'm not going to ruin any of it for you (until I write about it in my Skyrim adventure journal sometime in the future). I highly, highly recommend it. I'm tempted to even suggest reinstalling your copy of the game just to play it - that's how good it is.

You can download The Forgotten City here. Just follow the steps below to install:

-Unzip into [C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Skyrim\Data]
-Start up Skyrim. On the opening image, don't just press Start. Go to Data files first and make sure the box beside TheForgottenCity.esm is ticked.
-Start the game.

That's all there is to it. This mod earns bonus points by being user friendly too. Some others require x,y,z other mods to run but this one works just fine on its own.
