    Shadow and I both have The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and thought it would be cool to have a thread where we could start a playthrough and talk about it, post video's and screenshots. (I suggested Morrowind but she wasn't interested.)

    I'll be starting my PT in a couple hours. I'll likely post after somebody else replies or make an update.

    Started my PT. I'm a badass Khajiit and looking to go somewhat rogue/nightblade but I tend to not stick to builds and just go with whatever skills I want.

    I finally started my character. I normally play Argonians (80%) and Nords (20%) of the time. I've wanted to make a Dark Elf Assassin from the loading screens for quite some time. [​IMG]
    I normally play heavy armor-2 handed badasses. I always steal and dabble in magic but it's never part of my class. This will be a thief, assassin, enchanter, alchemist. My main reason for enchanting is to be really good at it when I enchant my DB armor from the pic with carry weight.

    I tend to play Imperials the most (least based on Oblivion) but I do like Khajiits, wood elves and dark elves, and occasionally orcs because they can sometimes look beast.

    These are currently the only images I have of my character. Not much since starting out. I plan to go for the nightingale armor

    (As of 1:22 PM Mountain on 4/16/2015) I currently have a video uploading of my assassin going through Bleak Falls Barrow. I'll upload his stats to The Elder Stats site when there's more to make it worth my time. For now here's a picture. I'll edit in the video if there's no new posts or make a reply if there are.

    That leg doe

    Currently I'm trying to make sense of mods and what magical fuckery makes them work properly. So far I got one to work correctly. The second mod I wanted was to make scars not look so pink and painted on but it doesn't work for beast races :(

    I also ran into a little girl begging for a septim, gave it to her and she brought up the option to adopt her, but I can't if I don't own a house, so I'm scrambling to get enough money to buy the house in Whiterun.

    I know. hahahahah I thought the same thing when I took the shot.
    I found some mods that were supposed to allow you to make more items at the Atherium forge. I was interested in that, you linked me to some custom house once. That looked pretty decent.

    Yep! Same story here. She's one of the 2 beggers I decided to adopt in my second serious save. The other one is selling flowers in Winterhold.



    Edit:
    I traveled to Riften to get an amulet of Dibella. I intend to have my character marry somebody-someday because if you side with the Vampires in the Dawnguard story, you can make your wife a vampire with you.

    When I arrived in Riften there was a Master Vampire attacking. A guy named Bolli or something like that died. Before I tossed his corpse into the water below, I looted it and found the "Mark of Dibella."

    It felt so weird when an Argonian I usually consider a friend in my other playthroughs kept calling me land-strider. I'm so used to him calling me Marsh Brother.

    Put quite a few mods in my game, so far nothing lore breaking, mostly graphic and immersion mods

    [​IMG]

    Such as fog over the water from 4am - 7am

    [​IMG]

    Also better looking Khajiit faces and eyes in general as well as HD 2k textures and improved static meshes (such as those ropes being 3D and not a 2D image and the entwined fence)

    [​IMG]

    Pretty sure this dude is hung over as fuck

    Other than that I'm still trying to find my way around Skyrim (I don't know it as well as I do Oblivion) and save money to buy a house for that one kid. It torn me up when she said "Will you be my father?"

    So I stole from the temple of Mara and one of the priests sent hired thugs after me.

    That's what became of them.

    Hate to tell ya (not really), your boss is dead. I actually didn't do it this time and you're welcum for the healing potion. If you even care, I dumped his corpse in the water below the city. Thanks for attending my wedding (per-recording.)

    What?

    Finally got an ENB (think of it like a shader mod) for Skyrim to work, without the ENB I run at 120+ FPS, with the ENB, around 30-35 outside and 45 inside

    As for where I'm at now, still going around, getting distracted by every damn little thing. Some enemies are a pain in the ass to kill like Frost -anythings-, trolls especially. I'm not too far into the main storyline, just went to see the greybeards but I'm now entering the thieves guild. Paid 1000 gold to change up my face just a bit. Found the orphanage which was worse than seeing that girl on the street, guess I'll have to join the Dark Brotherhood and have her killed. (if you know who I mean)

    Don't remember what building this was but it looked really nice

    While exploring the "haunted" Shroud Hearth Barrow, I stood over this grate which fell out from under me and I plunged into the water, I scrambled to jump out (cats hate water :P) but in all honestly I'm fucking terrified of dark deep water like that in these games. I hate slaughter fish (Oblivion got me with the giant slaughterfish) and mudcrabs. Finally got the balls to check it out and it wasn't as deep as it looks, also held a skeleton and some treasure.

    Jarls palace, Riften.

    I have a few more video's to post, I'll edit them in later. Mostly I've been screwing around, assasinating random people on the road for fun. As I killed the last guy, I started to wish I'd kept track of who has died now.

    My follower Lydia seemed pretty upset at my wedding. I did marry a random stranger and she's an option. Part of me wonders if she was upset and that's why she stopped following me.

    I had to dismiss Lydia, I don't like followers, they always get in the way of my arrows or spells on the rare occasion I use them. Plus she keeps activating traps on me

    I'll recruit Teldryn Sero eventually. I just need to walk my ass over to Windhelm and take the boat to Solstheim. He's an invaluable companion.

    The problem is, I'm a sneak-thief and an assassin. Having people follow me kinda makes that hard to do.

    Barely played any of the original game, I have all the DLC's but have no idea what any of them are about and yes, having followers when you're sneaking is pretty counterproductive

    Dragonborn: Hard to explain without spoilers. It involves the Island of Solstheim, a big epic quest to find a major player and a daedric prince.
    Hearthfire: You can build houses now. Yay or something. One is good but they all get attacked regularly.
    Dawnguard: Vampires are attacking everyone, everywhere. Join the Dawnguard and fight the vampire menace or join the vampires and obliterate the Dawnguard.

    This is what you could have Shatto.

    So like marry someone and then just adopt a kid right? Also I got a mod called "run for your lives" that makes people run indoors during a dragon attack so they don't all get slaughtered

    You don't have to be married. I just want to side with the vampires of the Dawnguard DLC so I can make my wife immortal with me. Though, there is a flaw in my plan. My wife is fucking annoying. I think I want to kill her. Yes, yes, I definitely want to assassinate her but you can't get remarried. Decisions, decisions.

    (I killed my wife with my original char (Cheating whore!) and I was still able to adopt.)

    If you're looking for a good wife, Camilla Valerius (Riverwood trader) or Ysolda (Whiterun market, needs a mammoth tusk.)


    Edit: So I was in an archer battle with a bandit and he said "Time to die hero!" I almost got up and walked away! There must have been a huge mistake! Hero? I would never!

    Yeah, sure. If you're into that sort or thing or you're Japanese. I just prefer normal porn but to each their own.

    rEddit: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Maramal I'm gonna becum a cannibal just so I can murder him and eat his flesh. If that's wrong, then they shouldn't have made him sound so Delicious.
