I don't think I can live without fast travel. It's a damn big world with no faster form of travel than feet.

Skyrim without fast travel: 1. Skyrim without fast travel!

Check it out. I just realized actually on my Bosmer, when I started horsing around a lot since I have a lot of quests done, that I missed a lot of things by keeping on fast travelling. I missed a lot of quest points, scenery and random encounters with weird people. There was this wandering Khajiit who gives you a quest. There was an Old Orc who left his stronghold looking for a good death. There was this crazy old hag who asks you to wabbajack her. There were those merchant wagons, which if you follow the clues, sometimes leads you to hidden bandit lairs. There are also places you don't see on the map. I was in the mountains around Ivarstead once, and saw Darkwater Crossing under a waterfall. I already entered it, but checking the map, its still not revealed.

^Pretty interesting concept there. I mean Sure I like wandering sometimes, and if a quest marker is close I'll walk to it. Depends on what I have to do most of the time and just how far I have to go. Fast travel is a must have, but not necessarily a must use.

Finally got back around to putting in some Skyrim time after about a month and a half and man I've missed it lol. Working on killing Alduin just talked to Paarthurnax...that is one confusing dragon...

That reminds me of The Elder Strolls. A guy who is attempting to live his life as an adventure hating, no-fast traveling NPC. It's a pretty good read.

He also did Livin' in Oblivion, which is the along the same lines.

I just finally started playing Skyrim a couple of weeks ago, after spending over 200 hours in Oblivion and only closing 2 gates...

I've been busy, I own every home, fully decorated, I've robbed every castle of anything not wood or pewter, put up all their silver and nice looking stuff in my homes, I'm about a step below taking over the thieves guild, every merchant in the game loves me, my current level is in the 40's (46 I think), I've broken into every home and stolen everything of value, and any ingredients they had, and yes I do mean all of them, well except for some of the random in the middle of nowhere houses...

I've only played 3 characters, minimum of 40 hours, average of a good 120-140 hours each, all extremely similar, I love to play a thieving mage. I use a good 100-200 mods (you have to combine them into groups and make "master mods" so that only 20 or so have to load, but you get the content of all of them. I added the soundtracks from all 3 Lord of the Rings movies to the various music lists, and a bit of Pirates of the Caribbean soundtracks also. While I don't cheat while playing, I did use a mod that puts a chest right outside the dungeon/sewer exit and I stuffed it with magical glass armor a bow and about 2000 weightless glass arrows of paralysis 10 seconds. I've never used fast travel, I only bought a horse on my first character (the 40 or so hour one), although I run all the time, even while sneaking. I just learned about followers and have never had one.

My favorite thing to do is to put the crap I steal from people's houses, on them (reverse pickpocketing). Second favorite is to see how many guards I can get to attack me at the same time!

So, back to Skyrim... I've been playing for a good 20 hours now, just made level 30, and went into my first "dungeon" (at level 20, left at level 26! I miss the "you need to sleep to level") after having a drinking contest and ending up in markarth (very upset about that, I only had one more thing to do in whiterun and I was done that city and headed to the bandit camp at the water fall to finish the first quest you get from the blacksmith at the beginning of the game). I was in N'chundel Zel or whatever it is calledthe dewemer place and those freaking falmers! the first one I ran into (with my trusty boxing follower! urethra or what ever her uhgly butt name was) killed us both. (and no it was not the mage, and it only had a sword, no shield). that was when I realized I needed to upgrade my dumb bodyguards equipment. now with both of us and a summoned flame atronach we can handle two, some times three if I am crafty enough with my runes and arrows. but when I ran into four falmer stuck in a doorway together (not so stuck when they noticed my flame atronach coming around the corner), that was when the real fun happened (I wish there was a real raise dead/resurrection spell that just brought people back from the dead, not as zombies or undead...) it involved lots and lots of me running, I didn't know they gave the monsters the ability to pass through "loading doors", not cool. I had to find a place with lots of stairs, run to the top (while jumping or they would still hit me), then jump off the top, drop a rune on the stairs, back up and wait, hoping I could summon another flame atronach before they got back down (that was of course pending they did not jump down after me, which sometimes did happen, then I'd run back up the stairs and repeat. I think I had to reload a good 25 times in that one battle, just to get my follower to live (I wouldn't have been able to take the next fight without a meat shield! stupid fire bolt only does 25 points of damage, and it appears the falmer have around 250-500hp at this point and hit for 30-50 damage a swing, not good when I only had 120hp, 300mp, and 150stamina... for those doing the math I had a magic item with +mp and another with +sta).


I thought about blogging about my character, but I have not updated my own blog in 5 months, where would I find time to do that AND play?


so, wish list for TES6
1. use the same game engine please (it is good enough and means less dev time spent on a new one, plus the creation kit will work on both, hopefully)

2. increase the realism of life in the world
2a. make NPCs talk about it when I rob them
2b. put out rewards for their family heirloom wolf pelt's safe return...
2c. make them talk about other people getting robbed
2d. hire guards to protect their homes after several other homes in town have been broken into
2d2. increase the night watch
2d3. light more torches
2d4. stay up at night pacing around with a battleaxe in hand and PJs on!
2d5. put up wanted posters when they figure out who did it (that new stranger in town).
2e. have more than one home for sale in a town
2f. allow me to open a shop and hire someone to work in it selling my stuff
2g. make NPCs go to other shops and ACTUALLY BUY THINGS!
2h. I want more banks
2h2. the ability to get loans and a mortgage (paid remotely of course, I don't want the bank to sell my house while I am in a dungeon on the other side of the world!)
2i. I want street lamps
2i2. I want to watch some poor schmuck carry his ladder around and light them when the sun sets
2j. I want to see the people go worship
2k. maybe add a few outhouses and people use them (but don't make it mandatory for players!)
2l. I want to see people travel to visit family in other towns
2m. bring their produce in on a horse drawn cart from the farm to sell in the big city
2n. refill their stands after they sell out of something and get more product in!
2o. I would love to see a maid or manservant changing the candles in a chandelier in the castles
2p. guards sharpening their swords (or at least the local blacksmith doing it for them)
2q. see guards shine their boots and armor
2r. Have NPCs change clothes!
2s. have NPCs dress up in armor and go hunting for dinner
2t. where are the schools?
2u. more than one voice actor for every guard! I volunteer for free to read a few lines, I bet they could get 100k-200k free recordings of voice lines from fans, by simply setting up a "voice actors submission" web page on the elder scrolls website. (I do like how all the guards I've met so far sound like Arnold!) then setup the voices in "packs" for free download as addons (to save space on the install, "IF" the next game fills a DVD, speaking of which I have played games which take up multiple DVDs, as in 3-5, but have less than half the play content of Elderscrolls games, is it compression? or are those other games not utilizing reuse of previous items and graphics?)


ok I am done for today...

back again for more, I swear it will be shorter this time...

I was just looking on steam, and found two very interesting achievement percentages... of all players on PC (I am guessing Steam cannot check the console version), 85.8% of all PC gamers have captured a dragon's soul in a soul gem. what is interesting, is that only 80.3% have reached level 10.

What I want to know, is how do you find, let alone defeat a Dragon BEFORE reaching level 10! Not to mention being able to soul trap it...

You use your environment. I can beat a Mammoth or giant at level 5 if I want to. As for finding a dragon, head to a dragon shrine. there really is no point in following the quest.

ok, I have a real question. And I am guilty of not googling before asking...

I am playing Skyrim right now, and in Whiterun in arcadia's cauldron, and I used her to bump my alchemy skill. now, I am hiding behind her display case trying to pick her pocket to get my 1958 Septims back... when I first picked her, it shows only a 25% success rate (pp skill is at 100), I thought, "poop, I forgot to equip my PP skill items" Although I do not know if they help once you have 100 skill... so I drop out of the PP screen and use my favorites to equip the gear, not much, just a 12% gauntlets, a 25% ring, and the thieves guild boots for 10% (I think) that I just got right before going to sleep last night. I go back in to PP and it says I have a 9% success rate... I think "crap, I must have unequiped something by accident..." So I drop out again and scroll through my entire apparel inventory, realize I just bought a 20% PP necklace and had not added it to my favorites yet. I re-equip all my armor and then replace with the PP items, all four. Now I go back to pick her pocket and it now says I have a 4% chance of success to get my gold back from her. WTF... I am pretty strapped for cash these days, as I have been bulking up on soul gems (full and empty) and ingredients, to get those two skills up (ench 32 and alch 38). So I only have 3275 in gold right now, getting that 1958 back is pretty major to me and I don't recall having any issues the last time I used her to train me.

anyone know why my success rate goes down the more PP gear I wear?
as a test, I tried taking it off and I have a 49% chance to PP...

(I am doing this while typing, this is why I ask for help, then resolve my own problem...)
as a note, it was 40% but then I realized I still had the thieves guild boots on, when I removed them it went up 9% to 49% success (and I was successful on the first attempt) this caused me to check again, and the boots are actually a 15% PP bonus, not 12% as I mentioned above...

Now I am completely confused... although this explains why everytime I buy or earn more PP gear I get caught more often on items that I thought were all 90% success chances. since I started using three PP items (I just got the necklace in the shop next to here, the general goods one) for 50 items picked I've had to reload a good 30+ times due to getting caught on simple things and equipped items. on one guy I picked 1 spetim, for fun I guess, maybe I am greedy, or it could be mild OCD (I couldn't leave without cleaning him out completely). I had to reload 6 times to get it. It has gotten so bad that I save after every 3-5 items I pick, then finish the job, in case I get caught halfway through. Before I had these items, I could pull 15 things off one guy (skill at the time was in the 65-85 range).


anyone else had similar issues?



ok, now I am really confused... it happens that the training she gave me leveled me, so now that I have my cash back, I did 5 more trainings... now she has 2300 of my septims. I just tried to steal it back (without equipping the gear) and I have a 15% success chance....

I put the gear back on, and my success rate goes to 0%

I took it all back off and it went back to 15%

I tried each item one at a time, they all decreased the % of success...

I tried quaffing a potion of pickpocketing 20%, my success rate on the gold went to 0%

I have all the pickpocketing perks except the wax key, since I am still working on my lockpicking, I never pick keys from people (only because they are so hard to let go of once you get them)

^ Not sure, as I have a console version with no updates, but I seem to remember there being a pickpocket glitch that would effectively remove your skill. If you had a pickpocket sill of 40, any items that would be 60+ would in turn, make your skill 0. Something like that.

I think. Someone else will likely know for sure.

And while we're at it, you can forget lightsabers entirely.

Speaking of Light Sabers, I'm making my Jedi: Illusion, Alteration, Restoration, Speech, Conjuration, One hand swords. And I got a Mod that will give me the ability to actually forge Light Sabers once I get Daedric Smithing perk. LOL.

So, has anyone who plays on PC tried out the new mod support on Steam? I haven't had long to play around with it but it sounds pretty damn awesome. You essentially subscribe to your choice of mods and then steam will install them and update them automatically.

I wish they would fix the lag. It seems like a simple fix on the ps3. When I get lag I turn off the whole system and wait a few seconds and turn back on and the lag is gone from the game for awhile.

Haven't tried the new mod support. I'm still using Nexus.

As for lag, I don't experience it, unless maybe its because I can run it on high in my PC but I play on med or low.

I'm pretty jealous of all the PC gamers who got access to the Creation Kit.... eh.

You should have gotten it for PC then, just saying. Modding has been huge in TES for years. I never even knew that there was an XBOX or PS3 version until I was a few weeks into the game.

I love having the game on the PC, I fix all the bugs in the game with the console commands. I like things to be just perfect (hence why I have an Android phone ) and with the overlapping furniture bug in the houses it just bugs me to death... so I fix it

I have the house in Windhelm and I have it all perfect and organized. I'm a nerd

I don't use any mods or cheat wit the console commands... only if I have to fix a bug. I want to play the game right :P

I haven't played this game in forever... just suddenly stopped after I reached level 50. Many people from school also claim they stopped playing too.

Idk why, I guess it just suddenly became boring.

Yeah, I stopped playing it for a while when I got busy and I've never felt the need to go back and play. I found that with Oblivion and Fallout 3 as well though - I'll play in bursts with big gaps in between.

The thing about Skyrim is that each level gained is not satisfying at all. I used to play World of Warcraft and in that game when you gained a level you get a sea of new quests, armor, etc. available for you at that new level. So for example, if you want this piece of armor, you would have to earn it by reaching level xx. While in Skyrim, everything you can have even at level 1. I created my daedric (sp?) armor set around level 35 lol.

In short, there's nothing in Skyrim that would persuade me to keep going.

Well, at least you still have your copy NA. I sold mine when I switched platforms (hadn't played it in months ... )

So, when the next price drop happens, I'm sure I'll find myself lost again in the world of Skyrim.

Been thinking of giving this a second playthrough. I enjoyed my assassin character. The dark brotherhood quest was quite fun.

Cant decide between this and DA:O / DA2.... hmm

I actually got it for $20 off today, pretty good deal I'd say. Now, just to figure out how to get the patches :/

Got my patches installed, really enjoying this. Does anyone else have a problem playing with different play styles. So far every character I've made has played basically the same. Stealth, bows, backstab. Thieves Guild / Dark Brotherhood missions are where my focus is.

And magic is really cool this time around, I wish I could give it a try at some point (but I always end up with another bow).

Also, forget heavy armor. I've never been able to play that way. .... Sneak kills with bows from the shadows work well enough... until a dragon shows up. >.>

I played a warrior/mage it worked well enough but i ended up heading in the stealth direction eventually

those two quests are better than the main quest anyways

Stealth is really fun. I hope to eventually try out magic though, as I do enjoy that.

And I *really* enjoyed the first part of the first college quest...

I always play a mage that likes to sneak and steal their alchemy and enchanting components, plus what ever is necessary to get his skills up.

Anyone *not* use fast travel? I always start out not using it. I mean, the map is great to look at, but sometimes, I just really want to get the hell back to Riften, or Whiterun. And damn, that's a long walk. >.>

I try to use the horse and buggy thing, but I don't always do that either...


I don't think I've *ever* played a knight type character.... sort of in Oblivion (but that was more spellsword).... Maybe in one of the FF games.... I want to use heavy armor!

I stopped playing because of battle field 3. I'll get back into it maybe over the summer.

I have not used fast travel since Daggerfall, and I stopped using it during Daggerfall as noticed all the things I missed because of it.

However I agree it really is a long way between some of the important places in Skyrim... Which is why I turned down game time to take a really long time for one day to pass (makes life easier when you spend most of your game play at night)

Yes on PC, it is in the ini file for every elder scrolls game, I usually sweet it so that 24 hours in game takes 6, 8, or even 12 in real life. Especially Herzl when you have a quest that requires you to complete it either before the sun sets or before the sun rises. It should be possible to make a mod for it and make it available on stream also. Not sure if they ever got the consoles working with stream yet. If they did, that would make it available to all.
