Map Info

Welcome. My name is PandaHeart, and I am the creator of The Barrow. The original forum post can be found here.

You start in the town of Falkreath and you're eager to join the Imperial Legion. You'll find locations like Helgen, Roadside Ruins (the barrow), Pinewatch and Embershard Mine. The mine is not in the correct location, but I felt like it had to be a part of the map.

In the future I will expand the map of Skyrim with other adventure maps that I'll release. Now only a small part of Falkreath - Helgen is covered.

If you want to stay updated with my future projects, you can join me on Twitter.

I hope you enjoy the map, credits can be found in the original Forum post.

TheAviator We played through and rated this map, actually really enjoyed it and is our highest rating to date!
Check out our play-through if you need a laugh or get lost... but this map does a pretty good job of telling you where you need to be:

Animaldragon24 You did a very amasome job right there. i have really enjoyed it and with texture pack it was so complete i cant stop saying i love it! :D
I would like to see some more of your work ; )

Athix An incredible map, The attention to detail in amazing. I love Skyrim so to see such a faithful re creation in Minecraft was fantastic! My one complaint is that the final arena was ridiculously hard and needs nerfing asap. apart from that i loved it! 9/10

2016-03-23 18:39

LachieBartram This map was awesome 10/10! I loved that you made it like a prequel to when the actual game starts! BTW I think you made the arena a little bit too overpowered! lol (died like 20 times)

2015-10-31 05:04

Shirley this map was awesome! I would like to see another maps built by you :)

2015-10-25 18:49

Random Guy This was an awesome map!! If you made more parts for this I would definitely play them! It'd be really cool if you made your own map/trilogy with a fantasy feel similar to Skyrim.

Pandaheart Another Spoiler alert: If you get stuck at the Alduin part, I suggest re-download the map and go in creative mode, punch out the door to the tower, get back in adventure mode (Very important) and restart the conversation with General Tullius.

2015-08-06 11:41

PandaHeart Spoiler alert: I honestly don't know why some people don't die when Alduin shows up >_

Guild_Gaming Quoting MinecraftMan:
what is supposed to happen after you defeat alduin

This is what is supposed to happen

2015-07-24 18:08

Guild_Gaming Played the map and had a ton of fun! The part where you must battle mobs in an arena was realy hard though, still fun! Check out our let's play of this map!

2015-07-24 18:06

ParkourMaster193 Very good map one of the best ive played 10/10

2015-07-24 17:59

MinecraftMan what is supposed to happen after you defeat alduin

2015-07-23 18:40

PotatoeGod For those of you saying to make a part 2, i don't think it's possible because part 2 is basically playing the game Skyrim. But overall, this map is amazing. 11/10 -potatoe

2015-07-21 21:38

crafty_ryan Was the map supposed to end when Alduin spawned? Because I am stuck and confused at that part because nothing else happend after he spawned and I got teleported outside?

2015-07-20 14:39

Pandaheart @Blueflew Well it is recommended to use the texturepack that I included in the download. I changed some texture to fit with the map

2015-07-13 10:35

Blueflew I really enjoy adventure maps, i just always have a hard time picking out what texture pack to use, if anybody can tell me what texture pack looks good with this i would really love that!

2015-07-10 09:51

SylonKiller Great map! I'd love to play a second one

2015-07-09 19:08

Myrooon Such an amazing map, I wish it was longer, but I know how much work is put into these maps, so I don't blame you. You should make a part 2 for sure!

2015-07-09 13:46

Bandix75 Almost over!It is thrilling me so much! I hope you do other custom map of this type of genre, indendo Skyrim or other famous fantasy video games!

P.S. February 2016 will come to this link in my custom map! The 7 people are doing, I hope you enjoy it and when both output or you can entertain or mad (because the map there will be many mysteries). For now, I will not say anything, I leave all a mystery, but two months will come to an advertisement for my custom map in question, and your Bandix75 all ... OUT!

2015-07-05 17:26

Voxulus Nice map. Kinda short, but really cool. I hope that some time you will create another Skyrim themed map.

2015-07-04 19:34

StephenFlagg Loved this map. Absolutely a 10/10. Look forward to more. Playthrough here:

2015-06-28 23:47

PandaHeart @SwederVW You're not alone :p

2015-06-28 18:31

SwederVW This was an amazing map! The only thing what whould have made the map 11/10 was if you could use a shout..

I hope there will be a part 2

2015-06-27 10:08

Pandaheart oh, and the 'lower in the keep thing' after you had your adventure in Pinewatch, you should have a key which was in the final chest. With that key you can open the door that's in the same room as where you first talked with General Tullius. You sort of follow the story of Skyrim there. The next time you'll have to see him he'll be in the tower outside though.

2015-06-24 07:17

Pandaheart @SnowFlake, Strange, there should be one in the download folder. The only moment where this particular texture map is needed is because at one moment 'stone' falls on you, but that's sand with stone texture. It's the Moray Winter texture pack.

2015-06-24 07:14

SnowFlake4444 hello again,
I really stuck on the bit were you have to find the general person, he said that he would be lower down in the keep thing, but how do you get to him? is there a button or lever? oh and my rating would be 9/10!

2015-06-20 09:58

SnowFlake4444 hello Pandaheart,
I haven't got the texture pack on this map, does it make a big difference on the game? if so which website do you recommend me getting the texture pack?

2015-06-20 09:31

Rogierrainbow there is also a skyrim texture pack from Ghostmod i would recomend to use

2015-06-18 17:29

Pandaheart Thank you for all the love and support

2015-06-16 08:19

Datguy PandaHeart you did great job on the map, I cant believe you scraped the city thoe :P It would be awesome if you could make a second stormcloak maybe? but this is one of my favorite adventure maps ever

2015-06-15 16:04

Anonymous I agree with the sponge king, you should definitely make a sequel.

2015-06-15 13:59

Erika It's kind of ironic that you start out in Falkreath and want to join the Legion considering it's a Stormcloak town.

2015-06-15 06:15

Unhak39 I really enjoyed this map.
Great job Mr.PandaHeart.

2015-06-12 02:58

hollandhugcx This was an excellent map, I thoroughly enjoyed playing it. All in all it was very well done, and I hope to play more maps you create.

2015-06-11 14:35

Pandaheart @fbdusy it should come with the download. It's important because I changed some of the skins to fit with gameplay and certain events.

2015-06-10 05:01

fbdusy is there a texture pack?

2015-06-09 21:25

Anaka I like it, except you have to be a imperial.

2015-06-07 18:40

Jaszcz I really enjoyed this map, the only complaint I've got is that the "boss fight" with the Illusionist would be fine if not for the skeletons, they made it so annoying and because all the mobs spawned infinitely it was near impossible to get on the pillars. But other than that the map was good, hope to see more maps from you in the future.

2015-06-04 10:28

HawkkHeroo Just finished this map, and I am amazed. This is by far the best Minecraft Skyrim map out there, which is saying a lot since there are many... This map storyline for one is very detailed and accurate, and the scenery is breathtaking. The behind the scenes touch at the end was very thoughtful, and really made us realize how much effort actually went into making the map. The only "complaint" that I have is when we do the secret parkour near the house in the forest. If you had explored that area a few steps more, I could see the creative mode landscaping that has been done to make the mountains. Other than that lack in ambiance at one tiny part, I would definitely recommend this map to any Minecraft player! Thank you so much PandaHeart for this magnificent creation!

2015-05-31 17:38

adren I am stumped when I reach the part where it sends me to the barrow. What's a barrow?

2015-05-31 14:28

Thespongeking15 Dude you should definitely make a sequel to this map, it is a very well made map. I think a part 2 or something would really benefit

2015-05-30 01:22

CrunchyMunch I've gotta say, this is one of the best maps I've ever played. The level of professionalism is really high, and the map is just stunning. The story was great, but could have been a little longer, but that's it! I enjoyed every moment playing this map. I expect great things from you, PandaHeart.

2015-05-30 01:18

Dovahkiin Amazing adventure map but the ending is kinda sad. It is definitely one of my favorite adventure maps

2015-05-29 01:23

PandaHeart Oh, Emily. I'm not sure how it happened but you bugged out. (SPOILERS FROM HERE) Alduin is supposed to throw you in the air, killing you. then you respawn in the ending chamber. I have no idea why that didn't happen with you.

2015-05-27 23:06

SomeoneAnonymous It was a really great map, but I have but one suggestion, it'd have more of an rpg feel if you could make it next time so the mobs dropped pieces of armor and stuff like that.

2015-05-27 18:35

kaka it is an awesome map trust me

2015-05-27 13:44

Emilly Awesome map! I really enjoyed it up until the part where (I'm assuming, wasn't really clear) I had to defeat Alduin. I defeated him but then nothing happened..? I ran around for a good 20 minutes after that and still nothing. I don't know if that was the ending or if there was more that bugged?

2015-05-26 22:08

NoLifeMinecrafting Great Map I'm Currently doing a lets play of the map I've uploaded part 1 and part 2 should be going up soon

2015-05-26 19:16

PandaHeart I updated the map, the hole you fell in is now filled in (and there's a chest there now for the adventureous) I removed some of the 'don't go here..' signs and I put a sign next to Helgen Tower to indicate that that's a location you'll have to visit too. Lastly, I removed the sign at General Tullius's house to avoid confusion.

Thank you for the constructive feedback.
