The world of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim just bursting with content. One of the most popular open-world games in the current climate, millions of players have spent the last 11 years battling dragons, confronting bandits, questing, and generally exploring this part of the much larger Tamriel realm, in which the series is set in. However, it’s not always all about action and sword fighting. Sometimes players really want to make a difference in the world, especially for those interested in more scientific pursuits.
As discovered by PCGamesN, a user named Zamio1 created such a mod for Skyrim, which allows players to contribute research and write scientific books. Dubbed the “Scholarship of Skyrim,” the Dragonborn can stop embarking on wild adventures for a while and work with some of the game’s notable scholars, including Paarthurnax, to hone their overall research and writing skills. This apparently leads to better combat skills depending on what the player chooses to study.
Among other things, it is possible to research The Scroll of the Elderss’ Dwemer race who, according to lore, disappeared but left their technology behind. Players can also choose to write a thesis about the Falmer or the ancient Nords. As the level of writing and scholarship increases, it means the Dragonborn can produce better books. According to the mod description, the location can also make a difference. For example, staying in the Arcanaeum, the library in the College of Winterhhold, gives you access to a variety of books. However, it seems that conducting field research is just as important.
There are many interesting books Skyrim. Many of these are just for reading and contain all sorts of stories and historical accounts of past events, giving fans the opportunity to learn more than what is shown in the game. However, there are special skill books that increase a specific skill when opened. Zamio1’s mod sounds unique, however, as it really means players can throw on their metaphorical tweed jacket and get down to some good old-fashioned scientific research.
It’s add-ons like this that are probably the reason the game is still doing so well after more than a decade. With a lot of interesting mods out there like the one that lets Skyrim Players conjure with a lute, the community is awash with many talented teams and individuals interested in expanding the already fairly massive world.
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
