About This File



A strange island has risen from the depths of the sea, an expedition to uncover its mystery is already on its way. You are just a little too late to the party, and following the expedition's footsteps you uncover a tale of treachery, madness and forgotten secrets before you self are drawn into the Maelstrom...


Maelstrom is a dungeon quest mod inspired by Norse mythology and spans a large dungeon complex and other locations filled with puzzles, enemies, secret areas and more!


How to start the quest:


Talk to the innkeeper of the Winking Skeever in Solitude, and ask if he knows about some work for you. Alternatively you can find a new location along the coastline which also leads to starting the quest.


What awaits you:


  • A multipart dungeon questline with three possible outcomes
  • Lots of old-school RPG style puzzles
  • New enemy variants, equipment, lore and flavour texts and a lot more
  • A fully voice acted NPC and potential follower (voiced by Simone Mountain)
  • A secondary vanilla voice follower with some custom dialogue
  • New dialogue created by editing vanilla voice assets


Latest version of Skyrim Special Edition


Video Reviews:




Playthrough by Zero Period Productions (contains spoilers, but useful for hints):



Changelog for v1.03:


  • Added a third way to complete the quest
  • Rán can now ride her own horse as a follower (you can disable it via dialogue option)
  • Fix for a rare CTD when fighting drowned enemies
  • Minor clarifications, fixes and enemy tweaks
  • Hopefully a fix for a CTD when fighting Drowned Dead in Skyrim VR (can't test it, so you have to try for yourself




Use your favourite mod manager that can handle a FOMOD installer, simple as that. Manual installation is also possible by dropping the .esp and .bsa files from the archive into Skyrim's Data folder.



Uninstalling a mod midgame is never really a good idea, but if you have no other choice:


  • Dismiss any followers you might get from this mod and go to a location which is definitely not part of this mod (e.g. Riverwood)
  • Wait for 24 ingame hours
  • Save game and uninstall the mod with your mod manager or delete the files you've installed manually from the Data folder.



Both followers have their own follower system and they will follow you regardless of any other followers you might have. They won't conflict with any mods regarding followers, but they also will be ignored by them and their respective special features. It's not recommended to use any force recruit / manage features from other mods on them as this certainly will mess up things.


The vanilla voice follower will switch to Skyrim's vanilla follower AFTER the questline is completed, then she can be managed by any mod you like.


Install Options:


A few of the NPCs are nude by default. If you don't like this, the FOMOD installer gives you the option to give the respective NPCs a basic set of underwear.





Conflict Potential:


This mod makes no changes to any vanilla records except adding two new locations to the worldmap by editing the cells 00000D74, 00003DBE and 0000B478. Only new objects are placed, existing objects are left untouched.
