Bavarian saga is the title for the collection of Amnesia mods originally developed by Sabatu. Another modder called headlesscyborg joined later and became one of the authors creating mods for the saga. Let's not forget Cibule who was co-operating on one of the mods. The entire saga is set near Munich in southern Bavaria. Each mod has its individual story, however they share the same universe, might share some characters or places and they all more or less intertwine or eventually amplify the fates of particular characters. Bavarian saga is one large franchise. The story writer is
Swankest CZ and all the creators mentioned above helped with their ideas to make the stories happen.
Originally intended series of short mods from the world of the Bavarian saga, of which only the mini-mode Return to Home was completed. Mod Silver Sword (Castle Wackersberg prequel) was not completed.
Bavarian saga covers the following mods:

It advances through parts of the castle that were unavailable in basic mode. Only the first 3 levels have been preserved, which will probably never be released.
NINETEENTH CENTURY (around 1890)
~ Blackwater's Blasphemy – tells the story of a descendant of an English immigrant family who built a residence near Starnberger See lake, near the castle of Verscheidenburg, on the north of Osterseestein mental institution. The protagonist returns to his ancestors' family residence, suffering from memory loss, gradually revealing his family history.

One day a mysterious man calls him, who will want to find 6 pieces of obsidian armor of the Counts of Wackersberg and a silver sword of the Greek exorcist Theodosius Romanos. In addition, he will have to solve the mystery of a mysterious and long-abandoned children's camp. Only 4 maps were created, but they have not been preserved.
~ Madhouse 4 - the plot was supposed to take place in the 1970s in a Munich psychiatric hospital. Further details were never considered.

There were also intended mods with the main character Manfred Petersson, which were to follow the mod Afterlife, so the whole series was to be created.
