Summary:
This is a dark themed story driven quest mod for Skyrim. Like a real story, it is split into chapters which will be added one by one as the development moves on.


Warnings (read this before downloading):
Content Warning:
The story of this mod features dark adult themes like slavery, reluctance, blackmail, non-consentual sex, humilation and so on. Its not over the top (at least not yet) stuff, but if this direction is not your cup of tea, don't bother to download it.

Full Story Code Warnings:
Prolog: Non-Consentual, Masturbation
Chapter 1: Rape, Blackmail, Humil, D/s, Beastiality (optional)

Length Warning:
Every minute you play takes several hours to create in a story driven mod. Don't expect this to be another Dawnguard. Right now the very first chapter is finished. Its more like a preview (which also means - don't expect any orgies just yet)

Bug Warning:
There are probably quite a few bugs in the mod, which I hope to find and fix of course. However many bugs are just caused by Skyrim/The Creation Kit itself. When I tested the mod, sometimes some action in a scene just failed for no reason at all and it got stuck. Most times I could compelte the mod without any problems tho - however if you get stuck in a scene or dialog, just reloading and doing it again fixes it most of the times.


FAQ:
Will this mod be continued?
Possibly.


Requirements:
You need to have these mods installed:
Also:
  • You need to TURN ON SUBTITLES in your settings
  • You need to have a FEMALE PLAYER CHARACTER

Incompabilities:
Custom Skeletons are very likely not going to work / fit with the mods animation. For the XP32 Maximum Skeleton there is a compatibilty mode: Select the Dark Investigation Settings Spell in your Magic Menu and turn on this mode if you are using this skeleton. The vanilla will provide better results however.
- While I tried to avoid messing up any vanilla quests, due to bugs and pathing issues I can't promise that I succeeded in it. Therefore I do recommend to only keep this mod loaded while you play it - it won't do anything after you have the quest done anyway. No edits on your character or anything are done.

Conflicting / Incompatible mods:
  • "See you Sleep" Mod
  • Ultimate Follower Overhaul

Installation:
1. Download and install all required mods listed above
2. Download this mod and unzip it into your data directory
3. Run the GenerateFNISforUsers.exe which was provided with FNIS and is in your /data/tools directory
4. Play smile.png


Quest:
- The quest is started by the courier. Just go into any city after the mod is loaded.


Trouble Shooting:
My custom PC looks strange / manly / bulky / is missing custom features
Move dip.esp up in the load order

Anray keeps being a follower even when he should have left already / The door guard won't let me in telling me companions are not allowed / Anray won't follow me, telling me to get rid of compainions
Disable any custom follower mods, like UFO, and restart Dark Investigations.

In scenes my PC or other Actors just stand arround like ragdolls when they should be doing something
Makes sure you have FNIS installed properly and ran the user tool as described in the installation notes

A scene stops and doesn't moves on / Strange things happens / Actors are attacking each other
Load the last save outside the cell where the cell where the trouble began (in most cases the last autosave) and try again.

I still can't get it to work / something won't happen / someone won't speak to me / some script won't start
Make sure you use the most current Skyrim Version (>= 1.8).
Remove / disable all not required mods (you can backup your data folder before to easily restore everything back once your are finished). Make sure the /data/scripts folder is empty as scripts from other mods with the same name could break the mod. Then reinstall DI, use a clean save (or create a new character by starting a new game - in no case use a save which you created while DI was already active before) and try again. If that still does not work, feel free to post here in this thread asking for support

Contribute:
Voice Actors
I'm looking for volunteers to make this mod fully voiced. Please check out this post if you want to help.

Graphic Artists
You know your way arround creating or editing items / textures / effects in Skyrim and want to help out? There is always some item or outfit I need for this mod, so if you want to help me out go ahead and PM me. All I can offer is the timeless fame if a place in mod credits however tongue.png

Animation Artists
I have to use existing animations for the sex scenes in the mod. While many of them are very well done, most are not perfect for the actual scenes I have in mind. For example, some are "one-piece" animations which don't allow me to set the proper timing, others don't quite fit the action (like looking to consentual when it is not in the scene) and several do not exist at all (groping, undressing, etc). On the off chance that someone with skill in this area comes along and wants to provide an animation tailored for this story, please contact me.

What is better than a adult quest mod? A fully voiced adult quest mod of course :) And that is what I hope to archieve with this thread - get Dark Investigations fully voiced.

Ready to make your voice heard?

Here is how you apply:
Please record a sample with a line of your choice for the character role you would like to play. It doesn't has to be an actual line from the game, just something so I can hear your voice and check if it fits for this role. Make sure you speak loud and clearly into the mic with maximum recording volume and as few background noises as possible. Then post the sample here or PM it to me and I will respond ASAP :)

  2. Thanks. And no need to identify you with Anray, just because I moved here I do remember the names of the voice actors ;)
    Obviously having no PM is quite a disadvantage, I hope mail is a good enough replacement and I will place mine somehwere more prominent lateron. It's athstai@gmail.com. I will also receive PMs on LoversLab for the time being.

    I might post a general update about the future plans in the next days, just to let those who care know what's planed and wether the mod is dead yet ;)

  4. Hello, it's Emotika.
    I've left a few comments on your Dark Investigations mod in LoversLab.

    I totally respect your decision to move here. And though I do not know the reason why,
    pretty much every online community can be a pain in the ass sometimes. :P

    I really look forward for what the future will bring for your mod and I wish
    you the greatest of luck creating a great story, finding voice actors, etc! :)

    2. Hoping future chapters are more directly negatively impactful on the DB. Mod is great so far, but rly suggests a big lead up to a major downfall, and probably a betrayal from a certain snide and sexist assistant, tho that might be a "red herring".

  9. Just testet..sun is going up but I'm not tired! Damn, what a great Mod! Sometimes my hearts beats faster :)
    I need to know whapt happens next! Feeling like a child 2 minutes bevor christmas.
    Maybe I can help..as voice actor maybe or ..don't know.
    Little bit more bondage or struggeling action seems to be nice (for me..) but while I played the mod I haven't noticed it..not realy. No crash, no bugs and a little riddle at the end..it was awesome. truly awesome. maybe I should try to sleep a few hours..im writing and writing and writing. I hope that i'll don't feel sorry for that..but for now: It's an awesome feeling!

  10. ..and i have to say..i'm play (e)rp many years, but what I've seen today tops it all. It fits to 97% my mind. My charakter in Skyrim needs a short break after this for now. Damn she would probalby kill me with her swords if she knows about all that

    ReplyDelete
  11. Just finished my fifth or sixth playthrough of your mod - guess I finally tried all paths and dialogue options.

    Really great Job!

    One minor suggestion: When Tursam orders the dragonborn to remove her clothes, check for all armor slots - was able to keep pantyhose, gloves and shoes on...

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well, don't know the reasons, but I'll keep checking your mod here, it's an excellent work and I don't want it to die. I'm not native english speaker, so my accent might be a problem to do voice acting.

    I'm not actor or anything, just would like to collaborate with your fine work, although I'm not inclined to do sex voices, and don't have MUCH time free, so I could just do minor roles, like guards or such.

    Again, I wish you luck on this next step on your mod.

    ReplyDelete
  13. If the Skyrim mirror bit was the reason Ashal chimed in and laid down the law on that issue so Ark Of Truth has backed off and will now only mirror items where the author doesn't reply in a timely manner or grants permission and even then will take it back down if or when the author denies permission.

    Effectively you won that battle.

    If you decide to force a complete strip make sure to ignore items marked with the "jewelry" keyword, no person is going to remove their intimate piercings to have sex since the point of getting them is for during sex.

    What is too bad it that no one has added some standard keywords for those piercings so Deav and Tursam could comment on them (not to mention the guys in the Theater).

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You can't actually check which item you have equiped before unequipping them, there is no function to get the item which is worn without SKSE (and I don't want to make the a requirement if there is no real need for it). You can only check for keywords on all items you wear (So "Has any item this keyword?").
      This isn't a real problem for the mod through because in most cases you are forced to undress yourself, so you can deceide what to keep on or what not, while for skyrim a person is naked when certain keywords (which appear in torso armor/cloth) are not equipped.

      Delete
    2. That was only if you decided to implement a "full strip" check as suggested.

      Honestly I like it the way you've got it so...

      In later chapters I expect to see the DB being made a slave at some point and an early experience as a slave could be to be taken to the slavers's alchemist to have a special potion poured into her pussy to heighten her sexual sensitivity and of course it needs to be massaged into the pussy walls which gives the alchemist an excuse to use her and thus be paid for his services.

  15. Great mod so far... just it gets stuck at the part where im supposed to wait behind the barrels and wait for the slavers... nothing happens. I emptied my scripts folder like you said in the FAQ, ran GenerateFNIS_for_Users.exe and still nothing. Also used a save from when im outside Bright Path Inn...

    ReplyDelete
  16. Nope Im sneaking aswell behind those barrels.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Then there must be an incompability with another loaded mod. There is a script which checks wether you are behind the barrels and sneaking. This can only go wrong if another mods is either changing your sneaking ability or if another mod has a script file with the same name (in the script folder or its .bsa file) which overwrites this mods script file.

      Possibly solution: Move Dark Investigation down in the load order.

      Save Solutions: Use a clean install without other mods. (Easiest way is making a backup of your data folder (copy it somehwere), create a new empty one, copy over the vanilla skyrim files (Skyrim*.bsa/esm, Update.bsa, Video, Strings I think) and then install this mod and try again. You can always revert it be deleting the new data folder and using your backed up one.)

      Delete
    2. Oh and btw, you probably need to use a clean save in all cases. If you didn't used one after emptying your scripts folder, then this might be a reason that it didn't helped too.

  17. Lowering DIP.esp on the loadlist worked... however now im stuck with beating the slavers... i kill them and they get stuck, aka they do nothing. Ill try and see if i can fix that :)

    Great choice for Anray voice (Mine looks... well, hum, I would understand if people doesn't like it!), and awesome and funny bonus scenes!!

    I just can't wait for Chapter 2!!
    Great work, you're a very talented modder, with really good texts!

  19. Hello! First of all thanks for this amazing mod. Keep up the good work.
    However I find the plot in chapter 1 a bit strange:

    1. How did Tusam bring the lexicon in the jail? Shouldn't the guard take all the possessions of a criminal?

    2. After the "negotiation", Dragonborn knew the base location, then why she didn't have the chance to destroy the lexicon?

    And here is a idea for the above plot, Tusam could have been cast a memory spell like the one in Dragonborn DLC

    Finally sorry for my bad English. So excited for next update!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well Anray was sloppy and the Dragonborn kept her part of the deal, so she didn't destroyed it when she decided to release him in the first place.

      I do agree, that this might be minor quirks one could argue are a bit unrealistic, but I think it is better to have the player accept such little oddities rather than breaking the story flow with complected or complex explanations on how this came to be.
      I don't have the Dragonborn DLC, so I don't know the memory spell, but since Tursam wasn't introduced as a magic user, having him start using magic would look a bit strange too, esp. since there would be no reasons to assume that prisoners in this high security prison would be allowed to cast anything :)

      Delete
    2. Looking in the other cells its apparent that the inmates there are allowed some personal possessions so Tursam would also likely be able to claim some. Far more suspicious than the Lexicon which is an unknown object to most people is Tursam being allowed to keep a slavers collar which perhaps would be more known but Anray makes me suspicious in that he killed the other slaver in the first place (or let her go and said he killed her) and Tursam threatens to ask Anray for a whip at once point, not something a jailer would be expected to get for an inmate (could be idle boast though).

      Regardless of how this works out its like most stories where you have to suspend belief a bit to allow the story to progress. Most stories have the heroes and heroines charging blindly into traps that are obvious because the story is more about how they get out than how they got in.

      Looking forward to seeing how this story develops from here.

  20. I got the Mushroom but still dk where it goes....I also found a bug
    [spoiler]

    Tursam leaves the prison and goes into the bannered Mare and sits down.....that's it. For some reason, he keeps trying to leave the prison and walks to the bannared mare. I tried to move him back with the command console but it doesn't work and I'm not sure either what is causing him to walk out of the cell and not follow the quest line :[



    So to quote Peter Griffin....this really grinds my gears. Any help would be appreciated

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The mushroom will have its use in Shydra's branch of the first chapter. As for your problem, that is most likely caused by an incompatible/interfering mod. Unload those and use a clean save.

      Delete
    2. I played through it a couple times, Great quests mod btw! but dont' remember anything with a mushroom. Did I miss something umportant?

      Delete
  21. Thanks for the reply. Ill make sure to keep the mushroom in my house then o_o ill scan through my mods and try to find the one that is causing the issues.

  22. I really enjoyed that... It's good to see you are still active as I can't wait to see more.

    I hear that you made some Oblivion stuff, too. Is that available anywhere?

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes, although it has not the same quality as Dark Investigations (still fun, so go ahead and give it a try ;) )

    Download

    Oh and the requirements:
    ShiveringIsles
    LoversWithPK
    Lovers Masturbate 2
    New and improved animation project version 2.4
    -Elys-Universal Silent Voice (you REALLY need to be able to read all the dialog)
    (currently you need LoversCrowningIsle installed - doesn't has to be active - to see Groldor properly, will be fixed later)

    ReplyDelete
  24. So would like to help in the voice acting, but I think my Russian accent, and knowledge of English is average - not much this will help.
    I wish you good luck in making this mod.
    I know a lot of mistakes. Google translator helped)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great storyline. I really enjoyed it and all the different text dialogue options. A suggestion is whatever you pick effects the outcome of the story. Other then that it's really good and can't wait for the whole story to be finished.

    ReplyDelete
  26. So I just stumbled across this mod and decided to give it a try. This is amazing work and I love that it isn't to over the top (at least not yet but I'll really appreciate it if the erotic intensity builds up slowly; I half expected to be dropped into an orgy from the very beginning). Love being given choices even in the cases where they were false. My experience was mostly bug free except for a couple things I'll submit below, it may be spoilers so avert your eyes if you're not the author reading my comment :P

    1) Maybe not a bug but; after "waking up" with Deav leering over me he and the innkeeper didn't do anything but stand around. I would think they are supposed to go hostile and try to kill me but maybe they are working as intended. It's a bit odd if so, because I tested it out and if I choose to drink the drugged ale, the innkeeper calls for the mercenarys and they all try to kick my ass (and fail!). But if I wake up after faking the drink they let me put my clothes back on and I walk right out of the inn like nothing happened. I think maybe they should want me dead in either case.

    2) After the fight with the slaver group upon returning to the inn, Shydra and Tursam try to flee: Once the scene plays where they decide to split up so one can escape they were both stuck underneath the inn's front steps and my character is stuck in place because the prompt to choose who to chase won't trigger. I had to open the console and use TFC, and then actually Disable the bottom segment of the steps to free them and contine the story.

    This mod is well written though you'll have to excuse the grammar, but hey, it's not as if I'm going to proof read this comment so I can't throw stones ;) It doesn't step on the lore. It's very immersive and gritty; if you think that it's okay for people to have sex and realize that bad things happen to good people. I'm dying to see the next chapter and I hope there is plenty more content to come.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Here I was hoping for a new voice actor application ;) As for the comment: Thanks :) 2 and 3 are both random bugs/quirks which happen in the game engine, esp. when you have other mods loaded. Sometimes a script just gets stuck for no appearent reason and mostly it can be fixed by reloading the last autosave/quicksave and replaying the scene. There isn't really anything I can do to avoid it, it's more of a Skyrim or mod compability problem.

      Also if you just finished playing through without reading spoilers, you probably missed at least one hidden bones scene/location. The author notes give you a small hint, from there you have to invetigate on your own (or read the spoilers in the threads here ;) )

    2. The only bonus scene I found was returning to the farmhouse. I went back of my own volition after finding the order book that said the father sold his daughter... I intended to kill him for that, but his wife was way ahead of me lol. The only other thing I saw in your note was about not letting the memory box get away. I went back to the cell but couldn't do anything with it. I just hope Anray doesn't find it and figure out how to rewind it lol.

      Thanks for the great quest line and for responding to me.

    3. > went back to the cell but couldn't do anything with it.

      Looks like it is safe then. But there is an ending where it has compromising material about "you" on it and get's into the wrong hands. That's when the bonus scene is unlocked (you still have to find it, though but it is not that hard).

  27. Great game and very well story writing but I still see alot of bug of it which I have load and load to make it work but I encounter a problem which is very annoying. After Tursam was capture and I have to either bluff or netiote to him, it just I can't get open or pass the gate even I already got the key. So any ideas how to fix this bug?

  29. New stuff was awesome the prison scene was extremely well done it was like watchin a movie. Had a bug where it wouldnt let me into the prison the guard kept saying i had to let my follower go but i didnt have one had to toggle the clipping off and walkthrough the bars. Other than that worked perfectly. Is there a bonus scene for the new branch like the end of the first one or does it end when you get what you want and leave the prison and does one of the cut scenes.

    1. Although donations would allow me to spend more time on working on this hobby, I'm pretty sure the "demand" to donate is not high enough to go to the trouble setting up methods for it. But thanks for the implicated offer anyway :)

  35. Cant wait for next chapter!! if I may ask do you know release date?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wow. This was fantastic! I've only played through chapter 1 - and only once, so it looks like I'll have to go back and try out some of the other options.
    Thank you for making this. I loved the cut scenes.

    Question: I arrested Shydra. At the end of the quest, I have a glowing mushroom from the farm, and I'm "smoking" like the Pale Lady / Wisp Mother. Am I missing something? Or do I need to just keep going? I'm half expecting another "Meanwhile" clip to start playing... but I'm exhausted and I have to go to work tomorrow.

    Thanks again for a great quest!

    1. The mushroom will have its use in the last path of the first chapter (yet to be released). If you couldn't resist and smoke everything you get your hands on, you will be missing out other "fun" later :)

    2. Well no matter what people may have told you, it is easy to quit smoking. I've done it hundreds of times.

      ;)
      Thanks Athstai Da!! Looking forward to future installments!!

  37. I just played through chap 1 again and this time arrested Tursan. Loved it.

    At the end I received my note with the credits and the bonus scenes. Is there a way for me to actually pick up the memory box??
    I was true to my word this time, and released Tursan and he took his box.
    Is there anything I should be looking for? Or other effects after he leaves?

    Thanks!!

  39. When is next chapter coming? btw awesome mod!

  40. Love the mod. Have been trying to find a Skyrim adult quest mod and this is just awesome. One question I do have is the follow-up with releasing Tursam. I noticed one of the comments said Black Briar Theater in Rfiten but I can't find anything.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Still a great mod even if it's picking up some age! There's a smoothness to it that you just don't see in other adult story mods, the time and effort put into making is clearly reflected. Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This mod is awesome , I hope that it is going to have there full of contents

    good job !

    ReplyDelete
  43. just an idea - but it could be neat to have a "hostage situation" where the bad guy makes you drop your weapons and armor, or put them in a chest or he will kill your companion.
    LTK.

  44. It's so much fun, and awesome work, cant wait for another update lol

  45. I am so happy to see the completion of chapter 1.
    I don't know if you still read the posts from other sites mods, but this mod is still the benchmark for adult quest mods. It is exciting to see it continue to move forward.

  46. Nice work(again).
    I'm having a bit of trouble with the potion though. Once the db drinks it (I know you can give it to shydra, that works), there's no way to advance. I assume shydra should have something to do with it at that point, since she gets off the bed, but she just stands there doing nothing. Everything else works though, and I've even tried cleaning the save to see if it helps, but no joy.

  47. Congrats on finishing Chapter 1. It's easily the best mod of its kind available. Enjoyed the additions. It's definitely nice to have an option with Shydra that's more interactive than the first one was. It was also nice to have a "bad end". I hope to see it expanded on, in future, if possible, when the next area is developed. Anything that extends the story a little longer is a plus. Wasn't quite sure how Shydra managed to just walk out of the jail afterwards anyway :)

    But in any case, really enjoyed it!

  49. Where i can find that mushroom?

    ReplyDelete
  50. hey this might be a bit of a drup, but where do you get the mushroom?

    ReplyDelete
  51. This mod is well made, and has a really nice story too! But one question though; what is the item id of the whiterun signet ring? It's one of these quest items that aren't removed from the inventory, and it kinda bugs me. :/ But all in all, really nice work on everything! And take time in making the rest of the story :)

  52. great mod! every little thing that happens is scripted so I do understand that it takes you a great deal of time to put it together.. but it works so well it leaves you speechless... best adult mod ever as a wholesome experience. But as always things can get better.. anims match up perfectly, but they could be more dynamic as in SL's stage progression, but this one has scripted get yourself into position anims, like the get on all fours with the bandits something that SL lacks. Still I played all that and the only thing i got was 2 cumshots and giving an oral... and on the other branch the cumshot, seeing a dog getting on with the prisoner and maybe the bandits... too much of a tease IMO... those 3 guys at the Theater were funny as hell. As a suggestion you could make it so that each day you can re-view the movie and they'd show up again each time with another trick until they score for real i guess. Great job!
