Decided to treat myself to playing more Skyrim this evening. As I was walking around I noticed a Dragon flying around and breathing fire on something so I decided to investigate. I snuck up on the Dragon and started attacking it and then I was dead. Apparently something one hit killed me and as my death animation was happening I noticed the club of a Giant. Apparently the Dragon was fighting a Giant. I had saved right before I came up on the Dragon so I held back and watched the fight. I snapped a few screen shots and the Dragon was easily bested by the Giant. Not wanting to waste the Dragon's death, I snuck up and nabbed the Dragon's scales, bones and then nabbed its soul. After that I ran like hell and the Giant didn't seem to aggro on me.

Today I completed the quest to become officially part of the Companions. Kind of cool to have a place I can hang my hat before I save enough gold to buy a house. Oh with that, can you stash your gear in your house? Its not apparent to me ifs that a benefit but I imagine it is.

Yes. You can stash gear in your houses. Once you buy a house, you can also purchase upgrades for various rooms, which sometimes include weapon/armor racks for display purposes. Those are great when you have gear that looks cool/ridiculous that's no longer worth wearing.

The first house you get will almost definitely be Whiterun, and you only get one chest by default (if I recall correctly). You'll definitely want to purchase upgrades for it so you can segment things out into different containers.

With house upgrades you can smith and do alchemy (alchemize?) along with stashing your stuff. It's also handy for stashing a spouse.

I didn't read the previous comments thoroughly, but oh well :)

Thanks everyone, I have 3.5k gold now and I need 5k for the house. I am going to save up in the next few sessions for it so hopefully I can get it soon.

Looking forward to stashing a spouse in the house.... with a mouse. In Skyrim.

Before you know it, you'll have hundreds of thousands of gold with very little to do with it. I just started thinking of it as another progress indicator, like level.

Awesome. Hopefully I can find a way to have that spill over IRL! I wonder, could I hook up a 3D printer to Skyrim to transfer my in game gold to real life?

Wait no, all 3D printers do is make sweet statues right now.
