If you’ve ever been wandering the frosty, Forsworn-filled peaks and valleys of Skyrim wondering where you could pick up a quest for the reward of a few septims, you might have thought, ‘Hey – The Witcher 3’s notice boards would come in handy right now’. If so, you’re in luck – a Skyrim modder has brought exactly these to Bethesda’s behemoth RPG game.
Oaristys’ ‘Missives – The Witcher board HD’ mod builds on an earlier (and excellent) creation by Skyrim modder IronDusk33, which adds localised quest-giving notice boards to the open-world game’s nine hold capital cities. While the original added functionality reminiscent of The Witcher 3’s own versions, offering radiant quests with a range of difficulties and rewards, Oaristys makes them the real deal.
The new version plucks the exact boards from, well, technically The Witcher 2, but The Witcher 3’s are more or less identical, so you can bring a dash of Geralt’s most recent adventure to the Dragonborn’s in authentic style. There are three variations included in the mod, and the creator describes the board model as “beautiful”, having “4K, 2K, and 1K textures”.
