Kill Everyone in Skyrim - No Essential NPCs

By Published December 29, 2011 at 3:18 pm

If you haven't done it yet, you've thought about doing it: making all NPCs killable in Skyrim, as was possible in Morrowind ("A thread of the prophecy, blah blah blah"), is now easily done through the installation of this simple mod.

Time to return the favor, bitches.

The "No Essential NPCs" mod by Trira removes the 'essential' characteristic of all (or nearly-all) NPCs in Skyrim, making them killable - including that Brynjolf jerk in Riften and the Imperial generals.


The "No Essential NPCs" mod is the latest edition in our coverage of excellent Skyrim mods, coming after our best Skyrim graphics mods and a silly-but-fun "Skyrim Retro Graphics" mod.

No Essential NPCs is available now on Skyrim Nexus, visit the mod's official page to download and install. As always, if you encounter difficulties when installing or have questions, feel free to post for our support in the comments below.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
