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

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.

(Small) Update to 0.24

There is no new content in this update. Yes, I do work on new content, but no, it's not in there yet. Soo, with that out of the way, what IS in there?

Most important, two new voices have been added. Vulon has recorded the more than 200 lines for Tursam and Valgo has chipped in his (accent-heavy ) voice for Haako. Thanks. That makes 9 voiced actors in total, but of course many are still mute, especially the female ones. Don't wait and voice act yourself today. Also, I am sure I did mention already that more contribution results in more motivation which leads to more new content ;)

While working on the new voices, I decided to add an option to the Dark Investigation Settings Spell to allow those who prefer not to hear male sex voices to skip them. Basically, all lines of male characters which include moaning or similar excitement will be text-only if you enable this option (once there are female voice actors with such dialog, there will be an option for those too).

Some new (small) animations have been added to the scenes, which I mainly created while trying to get familiar with 3DS Max before working on the "real" animations for the next sex scenes (see the Dark Animations post). Don't forget to rerun FNIS.

As for technical aspects, "Adult Show X" is no longer required to play this mod. Also all voice files are now xwm encoded, which is the reason why the download has shrunk to 34MB.

That's it for now. The next update will have new content, I promise (but I'm not promising any release dates )

  9. Thanks for the Update.

    Did you extend the Cinema Bonus scene? At least I could not remember the incident with the audience after leaving the cinema from before.

    That scene... loved it very much!

    1. Nope the scene was already there in the last version, no new lines or content have been added there. Just a small aftermath animation was added to that one, as pointed out in the post.

  10. "Some new (small) animations have been added to the scenes, which I mainly created while trying to get familiar with 3DS Max before working on the "real" animations for the next sex scenes (see the Dark Animations post). Don't forget to rerun FNIS."

    What's the new (small) animations? It's not the gold pickup scene right?

    1. In the "surprise" masturbation scenes, it's a short aftermath animation (I call it "Eeww, what's that?") when the Dragonborn notices the cum on her body. In the Tursam/Player scene, a short animation for the refusal has been added and the Dragonborn now stands up animated at one point in the scene rather than "resetting". Again those are just small additions not meant to be a "feature" itself but to improve the scenes a little bit.

    2. Oh ok, thanks for the quick reply and your awesome mod!! :D

  11. So, I'm having this problem, when the scene goes a fast fade to black and kneeling animation starts, my char is transformed into a giant oO, like, a lot taller than Tursam. Any idea of what could be the problem?

    And like always, even your small updates bring nice touchs, congratulations on good work. I don't know if you have intention of going back in the first chapters/branches, but I think it'd be a nice touch if Tursam said/made something if you tried do leave the cell...you know, just for immersion.

    1. You probably have the XP32 skeleton mode enabled. All player scenes often need to "resize" the player for its duration so that the animation fit properly. Normally it's hardly visible, but the XP32 skeleton needs a bigger change for this scene to have the head on the right height. So it's intended, although it might look a bit strange in this case. But the only way to fix it would be redoing all the animations for XP32 - which would be incompatible with the default skeleton, so there would ahve to be multiple animations to choose from in the script. That would be quite a lot work so instead there is rather one "supported" skeleton - the default one - and all others are made compatible, but might look a bit big/small at some times.

  12. I'm thinking of doing some voice acting for the mod, but a quick question, do I have to apply for a specific NPC, or can I just give you a voice file and let you chose what NPC it suits (if any)?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Both way works. You can tell me if you prefer a specific NPC (and we will figure out if your voice fits for this one), or you can just let me choose any if you don't care which one to lend your voice.

  13. Awesome! Can't wait.

  14. Awesome! I totally have to check out myself as soon as....wait that sounds wrong...erm. Let's try it again:
    I totally have to check this out with the new scene-additions, tursams voice and last but not least my own voice in it, as soon as I have the time.

  15. I recorded an English Pangram (A sentence with every letter at least once), so you will be able to hear what all letters sound like with my voice. Could you please let me know where to send it?

  16. I use SOS and with this mod, naked males have a Better Males penis right on top of the SoS penis. Any way to remove that?

  18. Just one quick question. Is the next update going to be the quest line for the woman after the inn or a continuation of the other one?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey Athstai, are you going to be voice acting for the mod too?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nah. English isn't my first language, so I would have a heavy accent which wouldn't fit into the mod.

  20. I made a new character, and I didn't read the not straight away. I ended up reading it after winning the war for the stormcloaks. Anyways, irileth was no longer the steward when I read the note, yet it still points to her (she is in the blue palace now). Just thought I'd let you know incase you didn't already
