The moon from Majora's Mask in Skyrim

I often find myself lollygagging in the wilds of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Something about the setting puts me in a lackadaisical mood. Usually, I have a list of goals I hope to complete each time I power up the game, but instead I waste my time as if I had all the time in the world. Well, I’ve found a cure to my apathetic Skyrim ways: The Marjora’s Mask moon mod.

For those that don’t know, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is an N64 game that places Link in a kingdom that is set to be destroyed by a falling moon with a face. Link has 72 hours to stop this impending calamity, which charged the game with a nervous energy.

It’s difficult to stop and smell the blue mountain flowers in Skyrim when every time that you catch a glimpse of the sky you see a moon preparing to crush the entire world.
