So much to do in this game!

I'm in the middle of about 10 quest trees, with probably about 30 side quests on going. I've decided to clean up my side quests before continuing on with the main quests, as there's a lot of "Go Talk To ___" type things just cluttering the quests screen. But all of them end up being enjoyable.

One quest that I'm in the middle of is following a dog that's talking to me. He and his owner had a falling out, and he wants me to help him talk to his owner. I believe his owner is some sort of demon/demigod type character, and might even be the dog itself, who's just playing a trick on me. I was following the dog, but got distracted by an interesting...

How many bunnies have you killed?

I'm really not sure why, but the game does track this! I've killed 3 or 4 so far. They're not that common, and they're quick... I just realized I've killed more dragons than bunnies.

Today I chased a snow fox, trying to kill it with an arrow (that thing is hard to aim at a moving target!), killed a widow in her secluded tower (I didn't realize she was just a widow by herself. In my defense she started throwing fireballs at me...well, I don't remember who shot first actually...) and was attacked by fish. Totally just wandered around Skyrim. Practiced dual wielding weapons and spells and totally just killed time. A fun night in Skyrim!


I have a feeling I'll be writing about this game a lot lol.

I'm really impressed by the physics in this game! Maybe it's standard now, I haven't played a "new" game in a while, but the water is just amazing. Rivers have actual flow, that will pull you along. Swimming with the flow will move you faster, swimming against it slows you down.

Randomly, in the middle of nowhere I saw a cart (like what you'd hook up to a horse or ox) just bobbing along a river, slowly moving towards a waterfall. I helped push it along and watched it fall down the waterfall, then got swept down as well. The cart was still just bobbing down the river. I know it's just random, but I found it... Read All


AdamPFarnsworth gives this an astounding "Must Play" on the Ghost Scale
This achieves something special, and it would be a shame to miss it.

I got the game a couple days ago, and am totally hooked. It's so open-ended that it can be difficult to choose what to do!

I was stealing some stuff from a shopkeeper's basement. He heard me and came down and attacked. I beat him up and he fell to the ground, then his adult daughter came down, attacking as well, and I killed her. Later, I came upon a quest where I found a treasure (a Golden Claw), and had to figure out who it belonged to to give it to. Turns out it was the shopkeeper's. So I gave it to him (he didn't die from our fight), but he just said "I just wish my daughter was here to enjoy it." Man, what a downer!

But, I ended up stealing a "dragonstone" from his... Read All


So I've liked what I've read here. Just decided to click the Buy from amazon.com button and bought it! Now I have to wait 4-14 days... ugh! I hate waiting!


Burn dudes -> Raise dead -> Burn more dudes -> Raise dead.


With the Creation Kit coming out very soon, here's an idea for any modders.

I wish you could restore Helgen. It could be a nice little questline. Clear the bandits, gather the scattered survivors, bring different kinds of ore, ingots, and firewood, donate money to the restoration effort...

You could even use your connections to get business. The Arch Mage could use his connections at the college to get an alchemist shop in town, the leader of the Thieves Guild could get a fence and even some legit trade, you could get the Companions to provide muscle, either the Imperials or Stormcloaks to send guards, the Bards College could send word to all the bards in all the inns...
