Using the console in Skyrim, how do you add dragon souls? I tried player.adddragonsouls, similar to player.additem or player.addperk but it did not work.

You can use

player.modav dragonsouls #


player.forceav dragonsouls #

to add souls.

Modav adds a number of souls to your total, forceav sets the number of souls to the chosen number.

Complete list of console commands here.

I think modav would be better, forceav can introduce problems. – kotekzot Jun 27 '13 at 7:23
@kotekzot what is the difference between the two? – ヴァイシャリ Jun 27 '13 at 8:24
@One-One modav adds to or subtracts from a value, forceav sets it. You can read more at shan's link. – kotekzot Jun 27 '13 at 8:38
@kotekzot added that into the answer, thanks. – shanodin Jun 28 '13 at 4:11
