Skyrim Grandma Shirley Curry is now available as a companion in the actual game, thanks to a mod released yesterday by The Circantolius Team of modders.
Available on PC via Nexus mods and Bethesda.net and on Xbox via Bethesda.net, the Skyrim Grandma mod features a voiceover graciously provided by Shirley Curry herself, who previously made headlines when Bethesda confirmed she will be a non-player character (NPC) in The Elder Scrolls VI at the request of the community. .
However, fans of her YouTube adventures in Skyrim didn’t want to wait that long, which is why this The Elder Scrolls V mod was developed. It is compatible with the Special Edition and Skyrim VR, and it will also be reverted to ‘classic’ Skyrim.
A fully developed follower
Shirley is a fully voiced follower, voiced by the real Shirley herself. She can be recruited after completing a short quest.
A formidable warrior
Shirley is a two-handed barbarian who prefers to get up close and personal, but with her unique bow, she is also a devastating archer.
A compelling character
Shirley is a unique and compelling character with a fully fleshed out knowledge-friendly backstory. You can ask her about her past, and she will treat you to a tail of both glory and woe.
An engaging storyteller
Shirley has a few stories to tell about certain characters, inspired by some of the many series Shirley has released on YouTube.
An awareness of the world around her
She has a few opinions, comments, and observations about certain locations around Skyrim. The number of responses is somewhat limited at the moment, but we plan to expand them in the future.
A quiet house in the mountains
She lives in a cozy cottage called Brightwood, in the mountains east of Drelas’ Cottage, northwest of Whiterun (see the photos above for directions – it’s marked on your map). She will be there if she doesn’t go on an adventure with you. This cottage doubles as a players house, as it has almost every craft station and plenty of secure storage. There are a few Easter eggs scattered around the house that old Shirley fans may recognize. Keep an eye out!
A collection of unique items
Shirley, the well-traveled and seasoned adventurer that she is, has several unique items that she has collected over the years that you will find scattered around her home. In addition to 3 all-new custom weapons, we’ve also added a playable version of Shirley’s dress (it will appear as a tunic for men). You can also create replicas of Shirley’s unique large sword and bow after completing her short introductory quest!
A horn to call Shirley by your side
On the top floor of Shirley’s house, in the player’s bedroom, there will be a horn called “Call Shirley” on top of the chest of drawers. Selecting it in your inventory will call Shirley by your side, in a semi-immersive fashion. Check out the photos if you are not sure where to look.
More to come
We have even more features planned for future releases! Stay tuned!
