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.

Will this mod be continued?

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

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

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

- 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.

Completion Status
Chapter 0: 2/2 Branches - 4/7 Voice Actors - 1/1 Follow Up "Bonus" Scenes
Chatper 1: 4/4 Branches - 6/13 Voice Actors - 2/? Follow Up "Bonus" Scenes

Old Versions:

- Added the last branch for Shydra - Added one "bad end" bonus scene - Removed Sexis Dependency 0.26
- Added voices for Anray and Shydra
- Added an option to skip female sex voices in the dark investigation settings spell

- Added third branch of chapter 1

There is no new content in this update.
- Added voices for Tursam (Vulon) and Haako (Valgo)
- Added an option to skip male sex voices in the dark investigation settings spell
- Added a few new minor animations to the scenes
- Removed ASX requirement to run DI
- Voice files are now xwm encoded, shrinking the size of the mod considerable

- Bugfix for missing hello lines introduced in 0.22
- Added Voices for Anray and Johnny
- Added the first bonus scene/location (for the Player/Tursam -> release branch)
You need to run the FNIS tool after updating.

- Fixed several smaller bugs based on feedback for 0.20

- Added Chapter 1 (first two branches)

- I hear voices. And so can you! Thanks to the fantastic voice acting of GrimReaperCalling, conradjones, creeposaurus and watshisface the characters of Elgrim, Wormos, Daniy and Erach are now voiced. Join the ranks of those great voices and apply for the remaining characters! (see the voice acting thread)

- Added story to provide proper closure for the first chapter. What happened to Daniy, Erach and Nodyme? Find out and head back to their farm after your freed Daniy (don't use a savegame from previous versions). Proper investigators may also find an item which will be usefull in the next chapter.

- When started with a male PC, the quest no longer fails but waits untill the PC is female (for example by using "showracemenu" or when using a skip-intro mod)
- It is now enough to have your follower wait outside the Inn instead of dismissing him. Also less prone to bugged follower stats
- You can now talk to Elgrim in Riften even if you got the note from Erach aleady
- The Bright Path Inn has now a quest marker
- The dialogue has been customized a bit to better reflect the PCs race, equipped armor and carried items

- Initial Release Chapter 1 - Prolog

Thats it for now. More information and text to come. I appreciate any feedback, bugreports, comments - thats what will keep the mod growing smile.png

What the future holds

I already hinted at it, the next mod I'll work on will probably be for Fallout 4, although I have not yet decided which direction it will take. And what do you do if you can't make up your mind? Right! A poll and let others take the burden of decision. Although just as for real polls, I'll ignore the result at the end and still do what I like most

What kind of mod for Fallout 4 would you like to see?

A story based mod without an adult (sex) theme, focusing entirely on the story and RP elements
A story based mod featuring sex scenes, focusing on the adult elements (like Dark Investigation)
An adult game mechanic mod (for example create your own harem settlement) without much story
I hate Fallout 4 and won't play any mods for it
I hate you and your dog for not finishing Dark Investigations and won't play any mod from you
Poll Maker

Some small words (in a small font) about the last update I promised for Dark Investigations: It didn't quite work out as I wanted. I still plan to do it at some point, but it won't be soon. Sorry.

May 11, 2015

Things to End

As most of you noticed the last time plan didn't work quite out. Like at all. So thinking about the future of Dark Investigations bought me to the following conclusions. In the next few weeks I'll finally get the update to 0.28 out which includes new voices for chapter one as well as one new bonus scene with our beloved heroine. Those are things that I already started and the voice actors already sent me, so it's time to wrap this up and release it.

Afterward, the mod will end for the time being. Chapter 2 is a huge time investment to create it in the same high quality as the current content and unfortunately it's more time than I am currently motivated to spend on this tale. Given that chapter 1 is completely finished with the next update, it seems to be a good point to make a cut there. Perwar might go unpunished this time, but at least some bandits, theater visitors, guards and guard dogs had a good time during the Dragonborn's investigation.

I guess that was a bit of a good news / bad news post. But stay tuned for 0.28 and the final opportunity for our heroine to get into trouble

Things to Come

Now that the first chapter is finally finished, I know many of you wonder about things like „Why the fuck is the second chapter still not out? It has been months! I'll never buy a season pass from this publisher again!“. So to quell your ongoing curiosity, I'll indulge you into the next steps Dark Investigations will take. I have explained most of it scattered in different comments already, but here is the exciting summary:

The next version will focus on adding the remaining voices for the last chapter (hopefully esp. Shydra), fix some of the minor bugs and add a few smaller technical features (for example I'll look into optional SOS support, some VR tweaks, etc). While there will be no story progression I do intend to add one (or more, not sure yet) bonus scenes to satisfy your interest in the fate of our beloved actors. As always there is no fixed release date, but I hope it will be ready sometime later this year.

Afterwards the work on chapter two begins. And it will be a lot work: Building a new big location (the slavers base), introducing new characters, probably creating some new animations and of course the usual stuff of writing the story, dialogue and scripts. Which means two things: There will be a lot new stuff to see and I have no clue yet when said stuff will be there to see. It really depends on how much time I'll have (and use) to work on the mod.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves: The next stop is version 0.28.

July 27, 2014

Update to 0.27

Here we go, Chapter 1 is finally complete. Yay! Not much else to say here, I have described the new content already in the last post and except for some minor changes (Spoiler: There are two bad ends) that's what you'll find in this update.

You do need to install the FNIS Creature Pack and as always you have to run the FNIS User Tool after installing Dark Investigations. On the other hand you no longer need to have the SexIS Datapack. You can use any of your old savegames before deceiding to threaten Shydra to start the new branch.

Have fun

Progress 4

Take a seat and let's have a little talk. About the next update. What will be in there? The last choice for the Shydra branch, which let's you try to negotiate. The difference between Shydra's two branches will be bigger than those between Tursam's. To be specific there will be three small sub branches, which each has its own sex scene - although story wise they will be very similar.

One of those branches will (at least that is currently planed) contain bestiality, which is a good time to explain how such kinks will be handled in the mod. I know not everyone wants to see such scenes, so the more controversial kinks will always be optional. This means you will always have the choice to select another path and you will know (or be able take a pretty good guess) beforehand if one path leads towards the one or another scene.

Any other new content? Yes, actually I decided to include one bonus „bad end“ scene into the next update. It wasn't on the road map (if I would have one), but fit very well and added some reactivity to a (pretty bad) choice a player can make.

Anything else? Not much. I'll remove the dependency on SexiS. Even though the datapack alone never causes any conflicts and acts rather as resource pack, SexiS is due to being discontinued very uncommon and unknown these days, so that removing it will make it much easier for new users to install Dark Investigations.

Any other questions? No? Oh about the release date. Well it will be released. That is a specific as I can be. But for the progress: The bonus scene was just finished, and the Shydra branch is story-wise up to the point where it branches into the three possible sex scenes. We're not in Vegas anymore, but there's still some work to do.

Oh one more thing: If you haven't found the Unlying Mushroom yet, you better start searching for it soon or you won't be able to see the interesting parts of the new branch .

May 15, 2014

Back on track

Finally, I do have some time to work on this mod again and progress is made. No promises for a release date but... well there is no but
Stay tuned.

Negotiations aren't going that well...

March 1, 2014

Still alive

Well, this was the good news Now obviously far more interesting for my beloved readers is the answer to the question: „When the fuck are you updating Dark Investigations“. So here we come to the bad news: In the recent months I didn't have time to work on it, so there was no progress. I like tinkering on this mod, but it is a hobby I work on when there is nothing else to do, which wasn't the case lately.

But as I stated before: The mod will go on. The remaining story and scenes for the last branch are already planed out in my head and they will see the light of... well whatever time it is when it's being released.

Given that The Elder Scrolls VI was not yet announced, I think there is a fair chance that the Perwar will be brought to justice (ot the Dragonborn to her knees instead – who knows) before Skyrim is obsolete
