    Those screenshots looked like a place in the far North-West by Solitude until I saw some of the later ones and they look like a place west of Whiterun. I'm pretty sure it's the place West of Whiterun at this point. If I remember, I'll post some non modded shots of it.

    This is such an awesome build idea.

    For some reason that showed up when I was Googling a specific armor set. I can't remember what it was. I think it was one you need console commands to get.

    I was reading up on the Solstheim Dragon Priests and saw this n the Wiki.
    "taking the name Ahzidal, meaning "the embittered destroyer." I was thinking it would be awesome to make an evil Nord character and naming him that. I'd use a 2-handed Battle Axe called 'The Chink In Your Armor' because I'm the guy that's gonna take you apart. I was thinking of renaming my Argonian 'Iron Boots' that because my wife Ysolda was killed/glitched and that is annoying as all hell. I did rename my main char 'HaxAras Royal' to a more fitting Argonian name 'Haj-Ei' which means "Hides His Eyes". I can't change my name in the game but I can just declare his name changed.

    I deleted my Dragonborn DLC and booted the game back up to see what would happen. I saved it and when I re-installed the DLC Teldryn Sero was nowhere to be found with the Blades so I went looking for him in Raven Rock on Sosltheim. He got reset! It didn't really matter because I never really did the Dragonborn DLC. First I was scared of getting my ass kicked and then didn't wanna go back without my favorite companion.

    Slowly moved everything to my original house, Lakeview Manor. I originally abandoned it because of the constant bandit attacks. I never went back despite it being the nicest location and having the best bard because I built a Greenhouse instead of a master bedroom. I took ALL my stuff and did the same with my other DLC packs as I did the first. Took forever to find her but I found Lydia with the Blades and had her be my steward again. Looks like I still get to listen to "I'm a Blade now, I can hardly believe it." I had to re-adopt my 2 kids and the one that had the pet lost it but oh well, It all worked out.

    I spent half a day moving my stuff back to my house. I still need to get 2 sets of Falmer armor for my mannequins and I need to set my display cases back up and go re-collect some Dawnguard stuff. I have to re-do the Dawnguard quests now but I'm fine with that. I can make better choices. Since I have to re-do all the DLC I think I'm gonna pick the Vampires with the Dawnguard this time. I can make my wife a Vampire and the Dawnguard never really did anything for me. I was pretty happy as a Master Vampire and then had to get cured a 4th time to do a mission for the Dawnguard. The Vampire attacks on cities are also annoying. People get turned and killed and I get Sanguine Vampiris which sucks so I have to becum a Master Vamp again. The Dawnguard don't attack towns, just me from what I remember.

    I've been exploring Solstheim with Teldryn Sero again. It feels so amazing to have him at my back again. My first time using him I had him for aprox. 30 hours and I never had him very long with this char before losing him to the Blades. Never again. I cleared out half a mineshaft and then went back to Skyrim to unload junk. I spent so long there that the cave reset and I had to clear it a second time. Yay. Just what I wanted. To fight 6 Draugr Deathlords at once. A second time. While on the legendary diff.

    Sadly I have to keep heading back to Skyrim to sell stuff. I need to look into getting a house in Raven Rock so I can store crap and just head to Skyrim for major sales. Now what jew have all been waiting for, the screenshots.

    Part 1.

    I think this bastard is finally starting to decay.

    [​IMG]
    Yep. I'm a terrible person. Only my friends are safe from my sticky fingers. I would never dream of pickpocketing the Blacksmith whatshisname and I'm scared of what Madesi would do if he found my hands in his pants.

    [​IMG]
    What is it? Where the hell do I get one?

    [​IMG]
    I wonder why they're fighting.

    [​IMG]
    Why the fuck was I not invited to this? See if I ever shop around here again.

    [​IMG]
    I don't like your face.

    [​IMG]
    There's just something about it. Change it or I'll change it for you.

    [​IMG]
    You think you can beat me in a brawl? 100 gold? It's on! Woulda won if that stupid bitch didn't get in the way and get me killed by the guards. I made sure to kill her first though.

    [​IMG]
    We worked out our differences. Selfie time with my new best friend. Sadly he died of a heart attack shortly after this.

    [​IMG]
    What kind of soldier of fortune doesn't even have a blade. Looks like somebody pickpocketed it off you. Musta been that shady fellow int he slums. He dies of a heart attack so it all worked out.

    [​IMG]
    This was an official screenshot I saw when looking at the game details when re-downloading my DLC. I re-screenshotted it. Looks kinda nice.

    [​IMG]
    I was gonna say the same. This poor woman died of a heart attack, looks like there's been a lot of that lately. Nobody bothers to carry her off to the hall of the dead. Heartless bastards.

    [​IMG]
    Bug? In Skyrim? What? That's so clearly Ice.

    This place is sexy. I should bring Teldry....... Ysolda around here sometime.

    [​IMG]
    Why is she naked? o_O Oh yeah! I decided I wanted he clothes so I took them.

    [​IMG]
    Wow guys. Really? Right here, in the middle of the day?

    Sure kid, whatever you want. Probably shouldn't tell your sister. She might be kinda mad she was too stupid to ask for money too.

    [​IMG]

    So could I. So could I kid. Hell, I could buy the whole market.

    [​IMG]
    My best friend.

    [​IMG]
    Google Serana, found this. Cried tears of joy.

    [​IMG]
    Googled Teldryn Sero when he was still with the Blades. Just cried. A lot. Then cried some more.

    [​IMG]
    I'm a straight guy and know exactly how you feel.


    [​IMG]
    I only drank milk one time! And ya know what? It was delicious. I'm also pretty sure I bought it from you.
    Don't give me that look. You act like I murdered your wife or something. Why would I murder that mean, naggy, annoy..... YOU CAN'T PROVE ANYTHING!

    [​IMG]
    This looked pretty awesome. 2 hours later when I was done finishing off the other 3 you can't see.... Fuck this place.

    Likely poor wording, it's believed that they "ascended" from Mundus into a different plane/dimension/world

    That is, though I like to take builds like these and tune them. I think werewolves/hunters should wear light armour, I have rarely if ever used heavy armour and it was probably in Oblivion when I didn't know there was a difference.

    I want to make a Bosmer hunter character too

    Perhaps at some point I'll make a Dunmer and make him a heavy magic user since he's good for it.

    Here is a sneak peek at my new house, cost me 15,000 septims

    I love the Dewmer and Falmer. I was so happy, as I said before to find there was still 1 Falmer left. I hope they'll tell us what happened to the Dwemer someday.

    Where are you from again? I seriously hate that spelling of the work armor.

    [​IMG]

    I almost always use heavy armor. My current char started out as a light armor char. Before that I couldn't take it seriously. I think I've made it clear the kinds of chars I play. Walking fortresses. As for the builds, I agree. Though I don't wanna say I'm using somebodies build and then go changing everything. The real problem I have with builds is waiting forever to get enough skill to purchase/make or find all the right items and skill points. I want to get into the build as early as possible. Not 100 hours in when I finally have 100 Smithing to create Dragon Armor.

    Heavy armor was the first I used because of Oblivion. The map was so terrible and the city down south was the first one I found. I cleared a cave, was over encumbered and dropped all my stuff in the entrance. I killed a guard on the way down south and stole a horse who was trying to help him. I got arrested when I arrived there. Broke into some houses and got caught by a cat when I tried breaking into his room. I always wanted to find that place again.

    I never woulda guessed that for the Dunmer. They seem like the mage type to me but all the guards on Solstheim wear Bonemold armor with is heavy.

    My new house

    [​IMG]
    Looking into the kitchen from the entrance.

    [​IMG]
    In the kitchen, storage for vegetables, cold stuff and wine.

    [​IMG]
    The living room, directly across from the kitchen, stairs leading up to the bedrooms and the door on the far left leads to other areas, the door on the right is the entrance by the kitchen.

    [​IMG]
    Another angle of the living room and dog Meeko (barks all the fucking time, better get a mod for that)

    [​IMG]
    Couches work and are comfy

    [​IMG]
    This is the area from the door on the left, seen in the first living room image.

    [​IMG]
    Alchemy area. All those jars are for individual ingredients, potions, the lockboxes are for recipes and the like.

    [​IMG]
    Enchanting, has places for soul gems, rings, amulets and circlets.

    [​IMG]
    Fully functioning bookcases (due to other mods) put books in and they appear on the shelf

    [​IMG]
    Keep going down the hall and we meet my mannequins.

    [​IMG]
    The door on the left in the hall leads to a follower's guest room, fully furnished for all companions.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And on the right, my sweatshop workshop/smelting area

    [​IMG]
    Keep going and you get to this room you saw. It has a bar on the opposite side (not show in the image) as well as some garden beds

    And!

    [​IMG]
    A working, flushable toilet.

    [​IMG]
    Going upstairs from the living room, we have the kids room

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And my room

    [​IMG]
    This concludes the tour of my new house.

    While looking for followers I came across this

    [​IMG]

    No thanks..

    This is obviously the best companion ever http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/37010/?

    Perfect analogy for the internet ;)

    In other news I keep getting rekt by mages

    Your house looks so fake though. Did you download a mod to get bookshelves to work? They already do that without mods.

    I also keep getting destroyed. By everything but especially mages. Solstheim is kicking my ass.

    Meeko is so fucking annoying! I swear I read threads int he past about people complaining about his ear bleeding bark. Did your kid ask to keep the death hound? I'm half tempted to bring one home myself.

    Shadow ಠ_ಠ

    Feels more modern (especially with what appears to be lights that use electricity) but I like it more than any other house I've seen so far plus all the sorting options, literally a place for every item

    Just this http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/10891/?

    "How would you like to actually be able to fill a shelf with books, or even other items? With the original script, you can only put up to 18 books on the largest shelves, which will only fill the shelf if the books are all the largest size. It's really annoying when you 'fill' a shelf with small books, and there are giant gaps between them."

    Their ranged blasts hurt :(

    My bows don't do enough damage unless it's a crit or sneak attack

    No, it was for a mod that allowed for more variety of pets the kids could bring home.

    It looks plastic. It reminds me of the Plastic texture from Minecraft.


    That make a lot more sense now. I wouldn't use them outside of books. I don't like random-respawning junk all over my house. It looks terrible and stops me from placing stuff I actually want. I lost the shipping map due to that fucking shit.

    Those bastard Cyromancers? always slow me down with their frost attacks and then 1 shot me and the Pyromancers fire lingers. The Ash Spawn are also kicking my ass. It might have to do with me using Heavy Armor which I've never really used and has no Perks. I also legendary reset Archery for the 5th time and I'm using a Battle Axe. Neither 2 Handed, Archery or Heavy Armor have perks in them.

    In that case, I would just use console commands or mods to get them to have the pets I want.

    I was thinking of a story for a character myself. I was gonna make him an ancient Nord Vampire. He'd wear ancient Nord Armor and essentially be a Nord from Alduin's time who became a Vampire to live long enough for his return. People talk about the Dragonborn returning with the dragons. It's not that the Dragonborn returned, why wouldn't there be more if that was the case. He just awoke from a slumber. I wasn't sure what to name him yet though. I wanna save that Embittered Destroyer char for somebody else.

    I also thought of doing something similar to that build I posted. Dragon armor and the Jagged Crown as well as the Dragon Aspect shout. That shout is just insane! I was getting murdered by bandits and used it as a last resort. That's how I got that screenshot of that bandit leader fearing for his life. [​IMG]
    You're...... You're not human!

    You're a nice guy and I like you. But I've decided I want your armor.


    [​IMG]
    This is bullshit. Where's his armor?


    [​IMG]
    Liars!


    [​IMG]
    What the fuck man?! I don't get paid enough for this shit!


    [​IMG]
    So beautiful in a horrible kind of way. That goddamn cross-hair ruins it. I think there's a way to turn it off. I need to look into that.


    [​IMG]
    Mostly honest? Me? What? Are you talking to somebody else? Me? Honest? What?


    [​IMG]
    I died shortly after this was taken and Teldryn Sero was annoyed he kept getting shocked but goddamn was it beautiful. I love Solstheim.


    [​IMG]
    I'm glad to know I'm being protected by guards who aren't even properly outfitted. Unless I took his sword. In that case, I guess I'm to blame.


    [​IMG]
    Those who give the most are usually the ones with the least to give. That or she's suicidal. Is it seriously that hard to get new clothes in Raven Rock?

    I crafted all my smithing stuff, alchemy stuff and did a ton of enchanting. I legendary reset Smithing twice. I think I legendary reset Alchemy and Enchanting as well. It took 8 1/2 hours to sell everything. I gained something like 400 1/2 thousand. I went to the excavation barrow on Solstheim, cleared the Draugr and updated my stats on The Elder Stats. I kinda lost the desire to play after that. I did make it to the 6th spot on the leaderboard though.


    I need to learn how to pick a class/character and stick with it. I mean when I play a specific character, eventually they fall apart and just end up turning into my usual type of character.


    All my Elder Scrolls chars. are Sneak-thieves, assholes and usually a jack of all trades. Mostly rogue stuff and warrior, tiny-tiny bit of magic here and there. I played a sneak thief archer in my current char. I intended to switch classes and play-styles eventually. At 340 hours give or take, the first one I choose is heavy armor and a 2 handed battle axe. I also notice all my characters share my same obsession with living forever.
    I was gonna make a necromancer character with the intention of them eventually becumming a powerful lich to extend their life as long as possible. In the Skyrim DLC, there are heartstones and I was thinking of a way to create a story where my character could use one to extend his life as well.
    I was even thinking one, if I'm an old man and lay there dieing maybe I'll be able to convince myself that I'm really one of my characters and actually living forever. I may die but in my last moment I won't realize It.

    Got more mods. Haven't done a whole lot in the way of missions other than some "small" thieves guild stuff.

    I haven't played much the last few days myself. I was sick for a few days and played. Then I crafted a ton of smithing items, enchanted them and created a ton of potions. I think I got Smithing to 100 twice and enchanting and Alchemy at least once. I had a couple hundred dragon bones/scales and used them all. I spent 8 1/2 hours selling stuff. I legendary reset my speechcraft skill and got it back to 96 in the time I was selling. By the time I was done buying/selling, I had enough stuff to do it all again. I updated my stats on The Elder Stats and lost interest after that.

    The next night was game night and my brother was over so all we did all night was played Smash Bros.

    I played a little bit today. I'll play more tomorrow. I'm still on Solstheim and will be for a very long time. I've spent hundreds of hours exploring Skyrim and not enough on Solstheim. I just leave Raven Rock and kill stuff that I encounter. I legendary reset Pickpocketing a second time so I was mostly stealing stuff today. I'm trying to fill lots of soul gems. I have the supply (Of gems) but I can't meet the demand for souls. Teldryn Sero has the Skull of Corruption, Sanguine Rose, Ebony Sword as well as my Battle Axe and Bow.


    When I get over-encumbered I just dump my stuff off at my house in Raven Rock. It's nice to have stuff there to sell when I need to get my gold back from Merchants. It does take forever to get anywhere though. Because I deleted my DLC and reset Pickpocketing, I lost 150 carry weight and that is killing me. Progress is even more slow due to the constant trips back to Raven Rock and having to walk across the island again and again.



    The Argonians are shorter. I don't like it.

    That is so fuckin awesome. I have Teldryn Sero so I know what that's like. The closest I could get to a third person would be Serana if I could travel with her too. Nobody else is really up to par with those 2.

    Are there mods to lessen the blow from falling damage when you use that? There's also probably a mod to always land on your feet.

    Update your Elder Stats page!

    I need to figure out something to do on Solstheim or move back to Skyrim. I love it there but I never get jack shit done. I just got pickpocketing back up to 50 and got the extra pockets so I won't be encumbered as fast. I still need to find someplace to travel to, maybe a crypt to clear. I can make a video or post some screenshots of it as I go through it.

    I really need to, I'll get on that.

    There might, so far though I've seen mods that add in the "athletics" skill back to Skyrim, if you recall from oblivion or morrowind, you can jump higher and take less fall damage the better you get.

    I miss just jumping everywhere and leveling my athletics skill :(

    As for falling on your feet, the game already makes sure you're landing feet first :P

    At this point, I'm not really worried about running out of things to do, though I am able to download more lands/quests via mods (lot of them are shit though to be completely honest) however it takes me so long to complete some quests, I haven't even touched a majority of them, including the main quest or any DLC

    Here's a funny image from a comic, based on Oblivion that I'm reading. A Khajiit woman after a drunken night with a Necromancer and a skeleton

    :D


    If a Draugr uses Fush-Ro-Dah on you, you can land in all sorts of positions. I hated that they removed it! Athletics and Acrobatics were 2 of my favorite skills in the game. It also pissed me off they removed unarmored. Didn't really care about speechcraft and Mercantile being combined.



    I'm not too worried about running out of stuff either. I've put hundreds of hours into this char and there's still quests for me to do. It's just, my routine is: Walk out of Solstheim, loot some stuff, fight some stuff, fight more stuff, over-encumbered, time to slowly walk back and sell stuff for the next hour before doing it again. I don't mind but it doesn't leave me with much to share for this char. I'll have to play more chars/games to have more to share.

    Looks like a good time to me. Why is she so upset?

    Done

    I miss unarmed :( but yeah, that's because of the ragdoll-ish physics of the game.

    Maybe just try making it to one of the actual quests :P

    It's the second time she's done that in a strangers house, first time was with an Orc highwayman who later robbed her. She's a recovering alcoholic and any time she drinks, stuff happens.

    That is just so awesome. I think it would be more interesting to get drunk repeatedly just to see what happens vs. trying to be sober in the Elder Scrolls world. Remember when you met Sam?
