PRAISE FOR THE FORGOTTEN CITY

Voted FILE OF THE MONTH on Skyrim Nexus for October 2015!

5 stars (out of 5) on Steam Workshop

"The story here is, no doubt, the best of any Skyrim mod. It's so good, that it really reminds me of Blockbuster movies like Inception, Interstellar, and especially Edge of Tomorrow, and it's so cinematic as well, especially the custom composed soundtrack." MxR Mods

"Amazing... it's a super dynamic story... how the mod utilizes paradoxes and time loops is fantastic... one of the most thrilling quests we've ever played..." Brodual

“The production values, for a mod, are completely ridiculous... The Forgotten City is a pretty big deal.” Kotaku Australia

“An incredibly polished & insanely well done Skyrim mod. You owe it to yourself to check it out.” ShoddyCast

"Finishing the game was a bittersweet moment... brought true joy to my heart. I’ll even go as far as saying I teared up a bit." Giga Geek Magazine

“Looks pretty sweet!” BioWare Creative Director, Mike Laidlaw

“An undeniably impressive undertaking.” PC Gamer

Hello, I have just started the mod, and after I talk to the jarl on the balcony I can already tell him who is guilty. is it a bug or is it normal?

If you already talked to people previously about the person than you could tell the Jarl. But what happend with me was Domitus made me angry so I killed him breaking the dwarves law. After reseting I told the Jarl that Domitus's arrogance angered someone and led them to violence... Wonder who that was hehehe.

The amount of work that went into this mod is really obvious. It looks so professional. Bethesda wishes their DLC were so good.
