It was said that the Goddess of Beauty and Love herself created the Island. She created it for all the enemy races and fighting factions of Tamriel; as a haven in peace and tranquility, where all petty grievances would be forgotten, and there would be no cries of war and no clash of arms. She painted Her island like a piece of art. She made it with lush forests, streaming rivers and fertile farmlands; She raised mountains in the north and in the west, made beautiful islands and painted endless plains. She made the land for a beautiful people who She drew from all the races of Tamriel.

The People of the Goddess worked the land and erected great buildings and monuments; they explored, they learned and they grew in numbers. Their achievements were many and their society grew strong, although the road ahead was sometimes rocky and rough. The Island of the Goddess became the Paradise in Tamriel that the Goddess had planned for. Indeed as close as could be with mortals and not gods running it.

But in the far west, the snake in paradise raised its head. The dark Deadtree Clan formed its black legions and stormed down from its prison in the mountains; to conquer, to pillage and destroy the peace She had installed. Angered and spurred by their devilish gods, they broke through, grew their numbers, raised their barbarian banners and set the march east to destroy civilization and beauty once and for all. Dibella's beautiful island was about to be torn by war and fire.

A month before the release of Skyrim, I give you the Västhelm Expansion for Dibella's Watch. This expansion comes with a new northern island kingdom called Västhelm which has an interesting quest tied to it as well. The whole island is Skyrim-inspired, of course. The expansion also works as a patch; fixing previously found bugs, but also adding to the Land of Dibella's Watch in other respects. There is more landscaping, more work done on existing questlines and even masses of new meshes for you to enjoy. Oh, and I need to mention the new in-game map as well. I put a lot of work into it this time, and it's smashing, if I say so myself.

To start the Västhelm quest, you need to sign up for the Crusader Army at Castle St Graecius in the Western Deadlands. Once you've earned your sword and rank, the Crusader Lord Marraldor will continue to give you quests tide to the Crusaders, but you can also ask him for an alternative assignment, which will send you off on a diplomatic mission to Västhelm, which then develops into more than just a simple diplomatic assignment. Follow the installation instructions when installing! For those still having problems with the installation (although it's pretty easy and straightforward), I've written a FAQ with everything explained in great detail. This FAQ is included in the download.

Dibella's Watch came in second in the TesNexus File of the Month voting for September 2011. It is a great honour and success for this mod, to say the least. It was beaten only by Unnecessary Violence, and that mod is created by a man who can control the game with his mind (I'm actually not joking), so it feels great that this can only be passed by greatness like that and indeed took an honourable second position! Thanks to all who voted for Dibella's Watch, and please do continue to vote for and endorse this project.

Dibella's Watch isn't done, y'all! I'm still working on it. Now comes the time for patching and correcting small problems as well as adding all the new stuff I can come to think of. So, continue to report problems and give me suggestions. I'll be here, working on this, at least for a month still. When Skyrim comes along, I will disappear into my darkness for a while, only to pop on out again with more great mods for that game as well! Yay! Can't wait!

While I'm working on the Patch, here's some progress updates and some tips for downloads for Dibella's Watch.

Dibella's Watch adds an entire new continent to Oblivion. It comes complete with a major city, castles, towns, villages, farms, monasteries and all the good stuff that makes up a Medieval landscape. There's also fighting to be had and quests to be made!

Here's a goodie. Gruftikus has made better Distant Land LOD for DW, which makes the pointy CS mountains look like beautiful rolling hills finally.

Thanks. It's not perfect yet though, so that's why I'm continuing work on the mod and all the updates will be released as the major expansion.

Hi, i just want to say this is a great mod but i had a few problems:

1.) although this mod is very good the lack of voice acting takes away quite a lot of the immersion i could of had.

2.) I couldnt really understand what was goin on becuase the NPC's subtitles ended too quickly, is theyre any way i can extend them so i am able to read everything the NPC's saying instead of just the first few words?

apart from that exellent job on the mod, im looking forward to the next update :)

OBSE ELYS ( is required for the silent voice, but comes with only an eight second file for silent voices. Since this mod involves a lot of written dialogue, you might want to use the longer silent voice file which is also supplied with this mod in the "DWOptional" folder. Copy the file to your Oblivion/Data/OBSE/Plugins folder. This will replace the eight second file with a twenty second. Backup the original file in the folder by renaming it.

are there any spiders in this mod? just asking cause giant spiders are pretty common in fantasy games and Nehrim had them,

Antiscamp Aug 31 2011 replied:

Yes, there are. I think I'm using the same spider as in Nehrim too, since it is a modder's resource. It's superiorily beautiful, but I always sweat like a pig when I have to fight one of them. I have a minor tendency of arachnophobia. :D

I used to play Oblivion to death, then I sold it with my old xbox years ago, and seeing all these mods, I really want to pick it up again, but it's so old now lol, and Skyrim's going to be comming out soon. So my question is, should I pick up another copy of this game to play this? Anyone have an opinion on this? And also, are there any mods that anyone knows of that adds companions? Cause I've always loved the Fable series, and missed not having that ability to have wives and families etc in Oblivion...

If you liked Oblivion without mods and are thinking about picking it up for computer I would absolutely recomend doing so. There are just so many great mods out for Oblivion. There are lots of awesome addon mods like Dibella's Watch, Elswyr Deserts of Anequina, Lost Spires, and lots of others that are really good. On top of that, there are a couple of total converstions that are essentially entirely new games for free! There's Nehrim: At Fate's Edge, an amazing total conversion by SureAI. There is also Middle Earth Roleplaying Project (MERP), a huge Lord of the Rings based total conversion that is in beta (it is planning to port to Skyrim, but another large release is on the way for Oblivion before Skyrim arives). There are even grapics enhancing mods like Qarls texture pack and Oblivion Graphics Extender (OBGE). Oblivion with mods is a totally different (and much better) experience than without mods. So long story short, I would absolutely recomend picking it up. It is fairly cheap.

Oblivion sells pretty cheap on Steam and other places right now, so you might want to consider watching the prices on there. There are a lot of companion mods for Oblivion, among other things, the CM Partners system, which adds probably hundreds of companions all over Tamriel, and you can even create your own. There's also Vilja. She's the best companion ever created for Oblivion and I can swear the girl is alive!

I believe the GoTY edition was on sale a while back for £5, pretty damn cheap for such an epic game. I have to agree with you there, effort has been put in but there are much better companions & mods around if you look for them.
