Dark Ages Castles

Published: Category:Dark Ages SeriesWritten by: Vexonar

Imposing and Ancient

Looming towers and great crenelated walls dominate the land. Choose from individual packs or the All-in-One (AIO) to cover all of them at once.


Stately Fortifications

The Dark Ages Castles texture module is an extensive overhaul to each of Skyrim’s unique castles. Explore these castles with spectacular new details and beautiful, rich colors. Choose between individual packs or the all-in-one.


  • Fort Dawnguard
  • Winterhold College
  • Sky Haven Temple
  • High Hrothgar
  • Castle Volkihar

Vampires beware

Some wish they were heroes and then there’s the Dawnguard. They have hunted the vampires since the second era and continue their fight against the nastiest disease to strike the Skyrim denizens. While the Fort starts out a little messy there’s no reason for the stones to be in a terrible state. This pack cleans up the stones and provides proper UV wrapping for the meshes.


  • Exterior stone
  • New exterior and interior wood
  • Updated UV wraps on meshes
  • Windows

Beautifully Magical

Winterhold was destroyed in year 122 of the 4th era yet the College was saved. We can logically asume that the stones themselves would be unhindered by time and change and would still be as beautiful as the day it was created. Therefore the Dark Ages Winterhold texture pack features beautiful hewn stone with gorgeous windows and properly gilded doors. Walking through its hallways will leave you feeling as though you are in a truly magical place. These textures cover all the architectural pieces of Winterhold College.


  • Exterior and interior stone walls and floors
  • Exterior stone
  • Stonework walls
  • Windows
  • Doors
  • Statue

The Dragonguard Rise Again

Although this temple was abandoned for years lost, there’s a reason it still stands. Therefore the textures contained seek to bring justice to the history of the Blades, the Dragonguard, and the people who forged this illustrious group by their blood and determination. Interior and exterior stones share the same texture sets.



  • New etched stone
  • Stone interior and exterior
  • Stone steps

Throat of the World

The Greybeards have staunchly kept their stone fortress in working order no matter how many shouts they’ve shouted. This pack features properly fitted meshes with stunningly detailed textures. Now when you feel the need to Fus someone, you’ll do it in style. These textures cover all stone in the castle, doors, columns, and windows.


  • Interior and Exterior Stonework
  • Windows
  • Beams and Columns
  • Doors

From the night comes its hunters.

Vampires are well known for keeping up appearances. After all, what thrall wants to live in squalor? Therefore this pack aims to bring Castle Volkihar up to vampiric standards featuring beautiful stone, cleaner windows, and proper UV wrapping for the meshes.


  • Interior and exterior stone
  • Interior tile
  • Windows, doors and statues
  • Remapped meshes with UV adjustments
