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.

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...

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.

They're all black folk. So lets stop splitting hairs.

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.

But you're sounding like an XBOX fanboy by telling him to get rid of his PS3 and bragging about how well it runs on XBOX.

This is why I love Squid.

Anywho, I made a new character after I realized how boring it was just running around swinging a sword. And I have to say, if you haven't yet had the joy of running around lighting everyone on fire, I suggest you do so.
