    OK ... most people that play Skyrim get to Bleak Falls Barrow around level *2* ... I started with the "Alternate Start - Live Another Life" mod that's so popular among the community, and one I've genuinely had fun with. I'd mucked around with a few things early on since I spawned just outside Morthal, where there's a lot of interesting encounters. Around level **25** I decided "Hey, let's get the main quest going." ... Fast forward to approaching Bleak Falls Barrow - I hadn't even entered it yet - when I'm assaulted by a reincarnation of Dark Souls 2 SotFS's famous "Gank Squad" (Afflicted Graverobber, Ancient Soldier Varg, and Cerah the Old Explorer) ... I was happy to see J'zargo as the "Explorer" -- until he 2-shot me with a DRAGONBONE Bow.

    Take 2, some hours later at level 30, after blowing off steam: J'zargo killed, then I got 1-shot by the tanky equivalent of DS2's Ancient Soldier -- who was wearing FULL DRAGONPLATE Armor.

    Take 3 (Time for GOD MODE) ... Yup, other dude's got Dragon armor too ...

    There's "deadly" and then there's "Let's put the toughest new boss as a bouncer for the first major area of the game that people are liable to enter at level 2, very underpowered." How's that fair?

    [Edit: I've performed the Black Sacrament ... the modder should be hearing from a Dark Brotherhood associate fairly soon.]

    I had the same issue with the mod, OP. No idea why the modder thought it was a good idea to put three tough bosses right outside the FIRST DUNGEON. I disabled the mod til I was Lvl 30 or so and had to go back and kill those three around Lvl 60.

    Those are nowhere near the hardest though. STAY CLEAR of the Ruins of Bthalft. The Ancient Dragonborn boss is LAUGHABLY OP. I fought him at Lvl 69 (nice), full dragonplate double-enchanted armor, plus enchanted dragonbone sword+Spellbreaker and he kicked my ass for probably 5 in-game hours. Apparently it’s not enough that he’s practically invulnerable and can Shout literally once every four seconds, ragdolling you over and over and over before you can stand back up, but the modder thought it was a bright idea to add a serpentine dragon and THREE OP draugr, all of whom can also use the Unrelenting Force shout. I had hella health potions, about 500 health, and Lvl 100 heavy armor so he couldn’t hurt me too much either, but the fight is absolutely absurd and it bullpl*ps to the point of making the mod no fun. It got especially tough after in-game hour #4, when the sun came up (I’m a vampire). Oh well, I guess it’s a good way to burn some excess potions. It only ended after he ragdolled me into the nearby Imperial camp, where they all proceeded to gang up on him, giving me an opening to dual-wield power attack him over and over.

    It was so frustrating that I found this page by googling “Deadly Bosses of Skyrim Bullpl*ps” if that tells you anything. The mod has some fun fights but that fight and the one you posted about ruin it.

    AT LEAST "LIVE ANOTHER LIFE" IS GOOD.
