Skyrim Mod Delivers 'Lore-Friendly GabeN Shields'

By Published March 14, 2014 at 9:56 am

A new mod by user oliver1706, creator of an alcohol brewing mod and others, brings new shields to Skyrim. The shields have Supreme PC Overlord Gabe "GabeN" Newell's glorious face plastered across the front, presumably deploying the Valve-leader's discerning look to discourage enemies from even taking a swing to begin with.

The mod author states:

"2 beautiful handcrafted Gaben shields for our lord. Craftable, temperable. Amazing! They are found under iron at the forge. This was made as a request."

And further notes, for those of you who are concerned about keeping Skyrim true-to-lore:


All this stated, oliver1706 offers his modding services to those who'd like to send him TF2 items and steam trading cards, so if you want to put your arch enemy's face on the front of a shield, send him a hat.

The mod can be found here:

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.
