Hey fellow Dragon Age fans! As a fun little side project, I’ve made a separate Fenris Follower mod for Skyrim. He uses the same voice actor, Gideon Emery, who voiced “MaleSoldier” in Skyrim, as well as Fenris in Dragon Age II. As far as lore goes, in Skyrim he’s a Bosmer, former slave of a Dunmer Great House. He has all the same special enhanced features as AnnaNPCs (the ones not requiring SKSE).
Fenris has a full follower framework, completely separate from the vanilla system, like my Anna NPCs, including riding, sandboxing, set home, meet at inn, and more. His chat is somewhat limited due to availability of vanilla voice files, and some new lines are included that are not voiced. I recommend using Fuz Roh D’oh if you don’t already; it’s just a really handy tool for showing unvoiced lines for longer than a second.
Although I enjoy constructing the lolquests that cater to your inner id, it’s always nice to balance them out with serious, emotional stuff. Granted, while I’m probably too cynical to feel emotions like love and compassion the way I used to, hopefully I still understand them enough to where the stories resonate with people who do.
So when players like Siempre take screenshots like this, in a way it lets me know that we did something right, because they cared enough to take a photo. After all, this isn’t some tourist who wants a picture with a homeless stoner they’ve mistaken for Matthew McConaughey. No, we’re talking about the heroes of Skyrim. And for all the dragons they’ve slain and the mountains they’ve conquered, I’m glad people feel scenes like this – these ordinary little moments – are something worth preserving.
