I don't know if anyone else has experienced this but my roommate became a vampire for his second character and while he was a vamp his silver sword did more than 30 damage but after becoming a werewolf it was down to 10. I'm not sure if this was just some random glitch that corrected itself or if vampirism increases the damage you can do with a silver weapon, does anyone else know?

Looks Ebony to me. Daedric was more chaotic and demonic looking in Oblivion, not just dark colored, and I don't even know if there's going to be freely equippable Daedric in Skyrim. I don't really know, because I haven't picked up my preorder yet, due to lack of available funds.
I do hope there's special armor like the Madness and Amber in Shivering Isles.

Ebony, but the chest piece is ebony mail, not ebony armor. I got it from one of the deadra quests. It deals poison damage to any enemy that gets close.

They're not really black people as much as they are Arabs.

Khajiit are closer to your stereotypical black guy.
Arabs don't wear cornrows and tend to have narrower noses than what the redguard have.

Plus, redguard have adrenaline rush, which in morrowind and oblivion equated to slave feet.

Most of the Redguards you see in Skyrim are from Alik'r which is a huge desert in Hammerfell. Redguards from the cities of Hammerfell are the black people of Tamriel, Redguards from Alik'r are the Arabs.

That's the chest piece that I currently wear. Gets a bit annoying when I'm sneaking around a house though and there's green smoke coming off my character...

Er, correction. Alik'r Redguards are still the black people we've seen in the previous TES games, but they're Arabian themed, as opposed to the rest of Hammerfell, where the Redguards are culturally closer to their roots in Yokuda.

I swear all enemies are blind anyway! I can sit in a decently lit corner, with fire equipped, and they could look right at me and not notice.

I find it funny that that made black people a separate race. But in the world and lore of Elder Scrolls it makes sense. I mean, they have two different white people races as well.

But... Black people are a separate race, even in real life

Also, something on my wife makes enemies run away from her, and then she chases them down, killing them slowly with poison without ever having to really attack them.

Well, I meant species instead of race. But, Redguards aren't Africans... they are Redguards.

The Redguard race is clearly based on African culture.

They aren't a different species, they're a different race. That's why they call them races, rather than species.

Which, makes me wonder, since the falmer are the same species, could like a dark elf go fuck a falmer and have like a falmer/dunmer baby? I'd like to see a dark snow elf.

Yes, I never used so I just got rid of it. Plus I want to ascend to Sovngarde when I die, not Hircine's hunting ground.

PS3. The same thing happened with Fallout 3. But not Oblivion, for some reason.

There's so many contradictions in the game's side quest plots it's ridiculous. According to my character's actions, in the afterlife I'll be defending the Nightingale Sepulcher while simultaneously hunting for Hircine and doing whatever the fuck Bosmers do when they die (probably kill and eat each other for all eternity or something). Who knows what else by the end of the game.

Anyway, I almost forgot what made me love Elder Scrolls games. The freedom to explore. Finally distanced myself from choosing what to do based on the quest log and map. Lately I've just been wandering about, exploring places I discover along the way. This is why I loved Oblivion, I remember now.

Might need to make a new character though. Even notching up the difficulty and straying from using stealth, I still kick ass with my bow... although I can be one or two shotted by stronger enemies if I'm not careful.

Get rid of your PS3, end of problem. Games always seem way more buggy on PS3. I've got an xbox, and in pretty much any game, I see minimal bugs, and fixes for the ones that I do see come fairly quickly.
Just giving one possible solution, don't go all fanboy "BUT I WUVZ MAH PS3, SONY FUH LYFE!" on me.
