Amazing happened. I was replaying the quest "Escape Cidhna Mine" whereas this I decide to go with the "Kill every fucking prisoner" approach. So while I was slashing away like fucking crazy with my shiv and having the healing spell at the ready suddenly I chop a guys head off.
Naturally it always amazing when this happen, and you always feel badass when you do it. But what really made more amazing this time is that I decapitated the guy with a fucking shiv.
I know the decapitation perk apply to most weapons, but how is it even possible to do it with a shiv?
There are some weird ass things I see happen in Skyrim in terms of the special cut scene attacks. Some times a one-hit kill arrow will go into cut-scene mode and miss the target. Some times my weapon misses the target XD.
One time the decapitation animation registered against a guard in Whiterun, but my Axe somehow missed his head during the cutscene and chipped off a tiny sliver of armor from his shoulder blade. I literally watched this tiny little armor shaving be blown away by the wind like a leaf after the animation finished.
HOW the hell that happens, I don't know. But I think ithints that when the decapitation animation registers, the target becomes much more dynamic in terms of what can damaged dynamically. My guess is that certain things in the code can be unlocked so that the targets are ALWAYS dynamic, so that you could normal-attack anyone with a sword and cut off feat, limbs, heads, body armor, etc, because it is obvious that the animations are using actual in game physics telling by how the animations sometimes "miss" the target. I would like to see a mod like this if it doesn't exist.
