100 new NPCs! Yes please.

If you’ve ever played Skyrim for more than five consecutive minutes, you’ll quickly have noticed that there are approximately seven different NPCs in the game, all of them are voiced by the same person, and they all look like identical twins. Okay, okay, I’m exaggerating for comedic effect but the point is: there really isn’t a lot of variety in Skyrim’s NPCs.
So what’s the solution? The Skyrim Interesting NPCs mod, which has already been downloaded over 70,000 times, adds over 100 new NPCs to the game — with 90 of them being voiced by professional actors, too. And they sound pretty good! Take a listen in this video below (it’s fifteen minutes long, but you get the idea). There’s 20,000 new lines of dialogue, so presumably they chose to record only a sampling of them below.
