I thought about displaying this stuff around my house but the one time I tried with one of the statues I couldn't find it when I went back home. Apparently my housecarl had knocked it to the floor somehow and it went across the room into a corner, I don't trust her with my stuff anymore but I just don't want to waste the time it would take to kill her and risk getting a bounty if she somehow survives the first attack.

Why is Dibella the only goddess you can find a statue of? And why are there so many of them?

Also where do I find those fancy nirnroot grapes? I've only found one so far, and I remember seeing one before I got the quest and I didn't pick it up.

Nirnroot grapes? I found some Crimson Nirnroot in Blackreach but I've never heard of Nirnroot grapes.

I've already said that Elder Scrolls VI should be in Elseweyr and Valenwood. But I think the plot should be a war between the Bosmer and the Khajiit. You start the game as a war captive in the middle of a negotiation, then someone fires and arrow and all hell breaks loose. You wake up in a house in a small village between the two provinces, and you've lost your memory. Meanwhile villages are being destroyed with no witnesses to say what happened. (Which turns out to be a Falmer uprising.) You have to uncover the mystery behind yourself and the Falmer, whilst uncovering many conspiracies.

I would love a chance to see the Falmer return to power and a mer empire created when the 5 types of mer people ally together and conquer Cyrodil. Odds are that the next TES game will be on the next gen consoles as well so the available hardware will be much more powerful than current gen giving them a chance to make a game larger and more detailed than even Skyrim has been.

Help me out here, bros. I want to start a second character, and I love the roleplaying aspect, so I want to make a druid character. I envisioned a druid in Oblivion, but it never quite worked. I just happened to remember the druid idea and I'm sure Skyrim can fullfill it.

So help me out here. What race would work best? What skills should I focus on? What armor, if any, should I wear? If you're not sure what I'm talking about, a druid is basically a wizard of nature. Kind of a cross between mage and hunter.

Ideas, everyone?

I would suggest either being a Bosmer or Breton as they both get some bonus to magic and Bosmer have a bonus to archery which would go with you're hunter side, then fur armor (especially enchanted armor that boosts magic skills) would be best for you.

I agree with all of this. Except for the Breton part. A Bosmer's connection with the wild would be ideal for a druid. Focusing on conjuration magic would be ideal, since you can conjure animals and animal spirits. And maybe Spriggans. I'm not sure though.

I always think of druids as being more magic based than most Bosmer which is why I suggested the Breton since any spell the Bosmer can do a Breton can do better. I'm not that big a fan of the mer in general and usually play as either an Argonian or a Breton.

Where's the best place to find deer and/or elk? I can almost never find any when I'm hunting.

Beyond the mountain south of Marthal I found a wooded area with a large group of deer and elk.

Yeah, I see a good amount of deer here. Now I can finally get some leather.

Going to restart this game soon. I didn't get too far originally but I feel I'll enjoy it more when focusing on stats and attributes that I actually prefer to play with.

If you want to hack and slash, play a Redguard, Orc, or Nord.

I always play a Redguard. (black man) And then I beat everyone's face in with a warhammer who looks at me the wrong way. Did I mention I steal everything that's not bolted down?

My mother always warned me about bringing a black man home.

So for the past 40 hours I had this Hjalti's Sword stuck in my inventory after I randomly picked it up somewhere. It was marked as a quest item so I couldn't drop it, and because it was a quest item, I didn't want to remove it using the console.

Then I went to sleep in some random inn, and a ghost appeared and was all like "Hjalti, gimme your sword" and I was like "OH THANK AKATOSH I CAN FINALLY GET RID OF THIS THING"

If that's true, then it's awesome news. There's no way they'd include all that if they didn't plan on doing something with it. As if I didn't already think Skyrim was the best game ever, this will blow everything else clean out the water!

If the expansion makes it to PS3 then holy fuck, I'll be spending more time on Skyrim than one would to beat all the quests and reach the highest level in World of Warcraft. It does feel that endless.

Definitely. It really does feel like they took Oblivion and made it a hell of a lot better. It's just a superior game in every way. I guess my one niggle is the map. Obviously it's Skyrim so I expected snowy mountains and stuff, but it can feel a little bland at times.

No, you will probably hate it and sell it.

The guild quest seem a lot less fun to me. Mainly the Dark Brotherhood. The Dark Brotherhood was WAY too easy. In Oblivion you had to try to loosen an animal head onto somebody without either his servent or him seeing you.. Kill each person at a party without the others seeing you do it... etc. Nothing like that in Skyrim.

The side quest seem a lot better though.

It's just a superior game in every way. I guess my one niggle is the map. Obviously it's Skyrim so I expected snowy mountains and stuff, but it can feel a little bland at times.

It's really hard to find places some times. I think that problem could easily be solved by showing the names next to the major cities.

Actually, I'll agree with you there. I miss the style of having a Fighters Guild and Mages Guild in every city. It made the quest line for each of them seem to last longer. You can bash through all the guilds in Skyrim pretty quickly. Well, I still have the Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood to finish, but if The Companions and The College were anything to go by, it wont take me long at all.

Speaking of the 'cities', they're also less impressive than Oblivion yet they seem to fit with the Nord setting. Some of them just fell really quite small, but still have all the same functionality.
