More information

Legacy of the Dragonborn (Dragonborn Gallery) is a mod created by icecreamasassin for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It adds a museum in Solitude where you can store and display many items from the vanilla game as well as those added by the mod. It also includes several new quest lines and a player home.

Official Description[]

Central Hall

The Legacy of the Dragonborn is steeped in prophecy, myth, legend and history itself. Explore forgotten lore and uncover the lost relics of the 7 Dragonborn of the bygone eras of Tamriel. From those merely mentioned in title to those who wielded the power of the voice, many legendary and influential people held the title of "Dragonborn" and they all link to the lost covenant of Akatosh.

"Legacy of the Dragonborn" creates a sizeable addition to your Skyrim game by providing a fully featured museum in Solitude, and with the help of the curator Auryen Morellus, you can store, display and utilize your entire collection as you see fit, all the while being aided and guided by Auryen in between your adventures. Auryen acts as a quest hub for the numerous stages of the "Shattered Legacy" questline, and also offers a variety of rewards for filling the museum displays. Patrons will also tour your collection and provide donations on a regular basis which you can collect.

The Museum is also the birthplace of the "Explorer's Society" a new guild founded by Auryen and yourself with the aim to explore and discover lost places, artifacts and history. Build the gallery from the ground up as the guild master, then recruit new members, each with their own unique back stories and special guild functions. Explore ruins and excavate relic fragments to re-assemble into artifacts to display in the museum. Set up a guild store with the quartermaster and much more to come.
