Dread Prison

Welcome to Dread Prison, the new and improved version of the ‘Prison of Despair’ mod. This mod allows you to send anyone in Skyrim to your own prison, located in the south of Lake Ilinalta. Lock up any NPC in Skyrim, send them to the mine to gather resources, or even enter them into the arena. Available for Skyrim and Skyrim Special Edition.

WhateverDev does not condone or support owning prisons of any kind, especially medieval and inhumane ones, obviously. Donate to Amnesty International to help protect human rights.


  1. Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Skyrim\ (or wherever you have Skyrim installed on your system).
  2. Merge the Data folder from the mod’s zip file with the Data folder in the Skyrim directory.
  3. Launch Skyrim and click on 'Data Files', then make sure the mod is enabled. Enjoy!
