Skald - Extended Lore Texts

This mod adds a series of lore-friendly and immersive text content to runestones and random dreams.

Dreams are expanded significantly, including extra norse-related fluff, dreams triggered by progression, and portents of things to come.

Runestone texts feature much more lore and also include information about the world such as recipes and fight tactics.

Perfect for an RP server or players that like to avoid the wiki when playing.


  • Over 100 new lore-friendly texts for dreams and runestones
  • Non-intrusive, risk-free mod that can be enabled or disabled without affecting save games.
  • Localization support available (but texts only available in English at the moment.)


Skald Dream:

A large dog, ragged and soaked in blood, watches you from the window. When you awake, no trace of him remains.

Skald Runestone:

In the night they went, in studded corslets, their shields glistened in the waning moon.
