A recent mod for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim blends sci-fi and fantasy by allowing players to gather loot inspired by The Mandalorian. The "Legends of Mandalore" mod adds a slew of Mandalorian-themed armor, weapons, and other cosmetic items into Skyrim.
The mod doesn't simply drop Mandalorian-inspired armor into Skyrim, it actually provides players with a bit of narrative to weave the two series' together in an interesting way. After starting their journey at Candlehearth Hall, players will start on a mission to collect the ancient Mandalorian armor and uncover the secrets behind the lost Mandalore civilization as it exists in the world of Skyrim.
Developed by modders Araanim, AnthonyPodavin, and Kryptonian, and first brought to public attention by PCGamesN, the mod gives fans a taste of what the rumored forthcoming Mandalorian game could look like albeit in an entirely different setting. Though Legends of Mandalore is a relatively small mod, it manages to add so much flavor from the TV series and from Star Wars lore that it's difficult to see Skyrim at first glance. Beyond the iconic Beskar armor—which boasts absurdly strong in-game stats—the mod also adds a non-functional jetpack, one-handed crossbows, energy shields, and much more.
There are a variety of fan-favorite armor sets to collect. If fans feel so inclined, they can collect and faithfully recreate Boba Fett's armor set in Skyrim, replete with the legendary bounty hunter's jetpack. There are also stylistic nods to many of the lesser-known characters from the new TV series such as The Armorer, who led Din Djarin's tribe of Mandalorians, and Bo-Katan, who joined forces with the Mandalorian in the Season 2 finale and is thought by many to be a potential villain in Season 3. Obviously, since the modders aimed to integrate both Star Wars and Skyrim lore into their project, the armor has a distinct fantasy bent to it, rather than just being exact copies from the show.
In the future, the development team intends to add even more color variants, as well as add some functionality to many of the items. Specifically, the team wants to create a working energy shield spell rather than just have it as a static item, as well as rework the jetpack so that it's completely operational. Also, they intend to add the iconic Mythosaur, the creature that inspires the Mandalorian skull symbol. Regardless, even as it stands, the Legends of Mandalore mod is a welcome addition to a growing pantheon of incredible Skyrim mods.
The Elder Scrolls series has been innovative for gaming with each new title, but none have caught as much attention like Skyrim. From the minute players are put in a prison wagon as the Dragonborn, Skyrim made a lasting impression. It's been such a hit that Bethesda has released Skyrim on seven different platforms, including Amazon's Alexa, and has made upwards of $600 million dollars over the game's run. It has formed a large following to say the least, and fans have gone on to cosplay, meme, and recreate their favorite Skyrim artifacts with whatever they have on hand.
While the content might be based in a video game, the real-life creations by fans' hard work are anything but a game. Whether it be life-size replicas of giant swords, heavy pieces of armor, or adaptations of classic foods, the fans have managed some truly impressive creations. Considering some of these resources are hard to get and even harder to craft with than in the game, these fans had to love the game that much more to put in the effort required to bring their favorite Skyrim items to life.
