** Saving Raven Rock from economic collapse deserves elaboration. When you first show up, the town is ''incredibly'' low on funds, to the point where they can just barely afford basic supplies, and even that doesn't last long once the supply company [[KickTheDog suddenly doubles their prices]]. However, if you happen to wander into the long-since-closed Ebony Mine, you can pick up a quest to delve to the bottom of the mine. If you do so, you'll find not only a colossal Nordic ruin, but also ''more ebony''. Once you finish the quest, the mine will be reopened, and Raven Rock will finally start making money again. The local beggar even gets himself a job! But wait, it gets better! You can also head outside town to an abandoned farm, where you can save the local guard captain's life, and find out that Raven Rock has been suffering attacks from Ash Spawn (zombie-like creatures made of ash). You can discover where they're coming from and go stop them, thus saving Raven Rock once again. Once both of these have been done, almost everyone in Raven Rock will tell you of their eternal gratitude as you walk by, up to and including Councilor Morvayn himself.

And after this, you can also save Councilor Morvayn's life from a group of House Hjaalu assassins plotting to kill him, which makes him praise and appreciate you even more. You go from another dirty outlander to the savior of Raven Rock!

* In the same vein as above, there Thieves' Guild For The Good Guys mod allows you to eventually repair the damage you caused with the people in Riften that you have to threaten and extort for money at the start of the questline. It even allows you to personally pay off their debts while leaving them a warning to pay up next time. They're so happy that the Guild is willing to be lenient and reasonable that they agree to your terms.

** If you complete ''Dragonborn'' and are [[spoiler: forced into being Hermaeous Mora's champion]], Tsun will also still tell you your place is assured in Sovngarde if you choose it. Not even the Daedric Prince of [[spoiler: knowledge and fate]] will keep you from your rightful place.

* There are several mods on the Nexus that allow you to, among other things, refuse certain Daedric Princes. One mod, the House of Horrors Alternate Ending, allows you to spare the priest that Molag Bal wants you to kill and refuse to be his slave, letting him go. Another allows you to complete the Mehunres Dagon quest without killing Silas and still keeping the Razor. Another allows you to start the Dark Brotherhood questline without killing anyone, by simply reporting Grelod's abuse to the guards.[[EveryoneHasStandards Even the corrupt Riften guards]] will react with horror at what she's doing to the children and run in to stop her.

* In the Live Another Life mod, if you pick any start other than Helgen. When you do enter the town you'll find a journal detailing how Hadvar and Ralof put aside their differences to help the townsfolk. And if you enter the keep you'll find the bodies of both Imperial and Stormcloak soldiers, suggesting the pair put the citizens' safety over their loyalty to their respective sides in the Civil War.

** There's [[https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/39625/ a similar mod]] where the player finds a tiny wolf cub, nudging his dead mother, and adopts him. You actually get to nourish him and raise him, watching him grow from a helpless babe to a fierce companion. Adorable!

* [[http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/54244 Save the Dark Brotherhood]]. Part Heartwarming, part Awesome. Instead of being too late to the raid of your sanctuary, you're just in time to save your "family" from the Penitus Oculatus (except for Lis [the pet Frostbite Spider], and Astrid, who enacted the Black Sacrament on herself). You can even marry either Gabriella, Veezara, or the (now available) Arnbjorn after saving them.

* Despite the ChivalrousPervert and {{Rule34}} inclined nature of the mod, most of the quests added by [[http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/70495/ Amorous Adventures]] are full of this. Yes, it exaggerates the ChickMagnet aspect of the Dovahkiin, but he must prove himself to any of the potential lovers that he is worthy of them. Highlights include getting Serana to move on from her DarkAndTroubledPast of her family and Molag Bal (and it ties closely with the ''Dawnguard'' questline to boot), getting Elisif The Fair to [[HerHeartWillGoOn move on]] from her late husband Torygg [[spoiler: (and in a related vanilla quest where you need to place his war horn on a shrine of Talos, Torygg even gives his blessing to you, knowing that you will take good care of Elisif)]], and solving the "visions" that Idgrod the Younger has.

** Really, the Dovahkiin's interactions with children in general are this. You can play tag, as mentioned above, you can rid Aventus and the orphanage of Grelod the "Kind", you can convince Braith to stop bullying Lars, and there's even a depressed girl in Solitude you can cheer up by telling her about the dragon encounter in Helgen. And while Bethesda prevents you from killing children, another possible interpretation is that the Dovahkiin [[WouldntHurtAChild just can't bring him/herself to go through with it.]]

* There's a sneaky one for players of ''Bloodmoon''. One quest in that game involved an immortal warrior named Ulfgar the Unending, who was traveling the world to find the way to get to Sovngarde. Of course, that turns out to be having to kill him. [[spoiler:So, what happens when you go to Sovngarde? He's there. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything And so are his teammates, who were turned to stone.]] Yep, he finally found what he'd been searching for for 500 years. ([[MoodWhiplash Regrettably, the effect is slightly diminished by the fact that he looks absolutely nothing like he did in]] ''[[MoodWhiplash Bloodmoon]]''.]])
