Trailers and Teasers – Skjel the Gray

Here is William Handford with the revamped Skjel the Gray. I wanted to give this NPC a more gravelly, monster voice like the vanilla skeletons, but still keep that jester-ish quality, and William’s rendition hit all the right buttons.

This is one of those NPCs that requires playing Skyrim and talking to vanilla NPCs, so I may have to do more of that to really flesh him out, so to speak. I tried to sprinkle a little more of that into his base dialogue as well – he previously used more idioms than Skyrim-speak – an example of which is in the following clip:

As I’ve been living in Riften on my recent test run, Skjel now has more idles pertaining to that city, but I eventually need to head out to other places and really listen to the chatter. Just another thing added to the list of shit to do.

  1. His voice makes me think of the skeleton in Last Unicorn now! I love it!!!

    Will he be able to cast spells and such now, too? Or is the revamp for his dialogue/voice only.

  2. I met Skjel last night, and noticed some of the dialogue did not match the subtitles. Just wanted to let you know. And I love what I’ve seen of him so far, lol.

  3. I don’t recall, unfortunately. It was within two minutes of meeting to him, I saw…maybe two mistakes. Simple things, of course.
