I became a werewolf... But I'm slightly disappointed by it. Magnificent transformation animation though and the passive buffs are nice.
Just found the starting quest for the Dark Brotherhood, so I'm psyched.

Yeah, I, uh... Accidentally a chicken too. With two hands of flame. And yeah, the whole village came out to kill me.

I'm still on my first impressions of the game and a bit weirded out. Can't really decide if I like it or not. The whole "natural leveling" is much more hardcore now that there's no attributes and no way you can affect your character in the beginning beyond race. Training, perks and health/magicka/stamina is the only way you can directly control your character progression. I guess that's cool?

I always wondered about that. Never knew it was a meme. Only ever saw one "I accidentally" pic until now.

I thought it was weird how early I found the Werewolf quest. Especially since there were only like two quests prior to it, and how most of the pre-release livestreams had people with no idea how to get it.

Now I'm just trying to find the cure quest, the horse one as well.

So far I'm loving it. Great start. Already used that basket trick a few times now.

I still don't know how they overlooked that. It's so silly, yet so hilarious.

The Dark Brotherhood is fucking awesome!

Also, my new arch nemisis are Draugr Death Overlords... Good god, they can kill a dragon solo. Then I found another one. Longest. Fight. Ever. Took me 30 minutes of kiting to kill it, he could pretty much insta-gib me.

Oh, oh, oh I found M'aiq the Liar! But he wasnt as funny as in Oblivion

Still haven't found them. I used my tested and true method of 'stab all the people' to get their attention. Didn't work I guess.

lol, my friend is currently trying to get into the dark brotherhood.

On another note, I am really amused at how much stronger than the dragons those giants seem.

Go pay a visit to Windhelm... Just sayin'

Protip #1: Get a companion, this makes fighting dragons a breeze. And they can haul around equipment.

Protip #2: Let the companion tank, they're "immortal"

Protip #3: Despite what I said in #2, don't get too carried away they can die

Just assassinated an entire cave filled with vampires. There's a very gratifying feeling to slitting all their throats without being detected. Thanks to the Dark Brotherhood armor, I have a x30 multiplier when I backstab someone with a dagger :D

Can't be bothered going to places like windhelm, too busy being the archmage.
That finishing quest monster, Morekai, is fucking tough man. I had to set it to novice and STILL got my ass handed to me. Fucker spammed a 60damage spell every second or so, then brought in a storm atronauch.
Soooo worth it now though, 100% mana regen hood/robes with -15% spellcosts.

I always have to set games to the hardest level when I play. Screw easy.

I played this goddamn game until 7 in the morning.

I fucking love it. I got mine at 11/11/11, so I made a wish.

Am I the only one having bugs with shadows? There's these sharply divided lines of shadow that creep and move all over characters that crawl all over characters and the edges of cast shadows flicker a lot. It's seems more like a bad setting than a downright bug, so I've been tinkering with those, but to no avail.

You still haven't explained how that day is unspeakable.

Is it weird that I find bears to be a bigger threat than dragons?

I've only fought and BBQed the bear in the beginning, so to me it does sound weird.
