I almost always play as a khajiit (the females are so cute and very pretty and I love all the fur options) archer and I love being a thief. I really like long range weapons and it feels really good to slink around and head shot people and leave a place with a butt load of loot and no damage cause I'm so swifty. I try and collect every book and pretty thing I can find to bring back to my house (that I basically stole and upgraded with an exploit) and decorate it.
Speaking of pretty things, I had Lydia with me and I decided she wasn't going to do me any good since I sneak around all the time and I don't want her getting me caught, so I murdered her and trapped her soul, then I forged a sword and enchanted it with her soul and called the sword Lydia. Now she hangs on my wall. Love you girl.
I like to put the game difficulty on master and I have a mod that lets me have multiple followers, so I have 2. It's much more fun that way for me, I feel like we are a gang of adventurers.>>157380
That's nice of you to make Lydia immortal

I feel you about that, there are mods that make them more interesting but it's unfortunate that I can't engage with people more authentically or feel like my reputation actually matters. It's kind of immersion breaking when half the male cast is Tino Tonitini from the Weekenders. My favorite NPC from the game is actually from the Dragonborn DLC, Neloth (picrel) who is voiced by Dwight Schultz, who also happens to play one of my favorite Star Trek characters Lt Barclay.
I agree with going vanilla for the first time>>157391
Kek same, if I'm going to engage with story it's going to be through a guild, but I did play the DLC

If your computer is not horrible, try using an ENB, it's a program that replaces the game's shaders. This is my game with and without enb. Just google enb skyrim, and you will find information how to install it. (I would tell you but I don't remember) I made a comparison image of my screenshots.

Which race are you gonna play as? cough
Dark Elves are the best cough cough
Bears are the spawn of the devil, I can't believe how evil and powerful they are. >>157396
This looks awesome, thank you anon

Found this interesting not sure if it was confirmed by the devs
Dunmer are highly inspired by native Americans, but also random other bits like some middle eastern and others.
I disagree that Wood elves are like native Americans. I think they are more like a stereotypical generic elf, but with a cannibal twist

You should probably play it vanilla first. or maybe download only mods that fix bugs from Nexus, like the unofficial patches or that one that fixes display cases. There's an entire category for them in the site.
Other than that, just make sure to have fun! Don't rush things, and at some point you'll need a place to store things. The cupboard and dresser in Anise's cabin near Riverwood are safe (most containers delete things after a while), so use them before you buy your first house. Or just sell your stuff. You'll have more than you need before you know it. I made the mistake of storing every single sword I found in a chest and now everytime I try to open it the game severely lags. Don't do what I did KEK

So I ended up installing the original and played for a few hours. I really enjoyed it but the amount of bugs it has made it unplayable. Also, just wanted to add that…I did not anticipate this to be this
creepy lmao. Atmosphere-wise it's closer to Diablo than the other Elder Scrolls games. It has also random sound glitches that also scared the crap out of me on occasion haha
Morrowind really changed everything for the elder scrolls. Too bad they followed that masterpiece up with exploring the 2 most boring races in the franchise
Daggerfall is still insanely fun, though. It’s better than Skyrim for sure. The magic is cool and the stories are weird. It can be genuinely hard, but nothing as bad as Arena. It’s more scary than horror games sometimes being lost in the huge caves and hearing a vampire
What is your favorite song in skyrim? Mine is Age of Aggression/Oppression>>157729
That's so creepy, I'd have nightmares if that happened to me

I dont really play with a lot of different companions, so I guess I'm wondering what some good companions are out there.
I did a playthrough with uthgerd once, she was pretty cool. I love her steel plate armor, it suits her very well, and shes good with a bow.
Had to stop playing with her bc shes a goody two shoes, and I couldn't do anything fun without her turning on me. I decided to test my summoned dremora from the sanguine rose staff, and attacked belethor. She killed him and then started attacking me. I also got past a certain point and the thieves guild quests and found that she was no longer following me, she'd went back to the bannered mare. I should've known from her attitude when you talk to her for the first time, but I was a fool.

teldryn sero is probably my fav, he's got a lot of dialogue for a follower and he won't snitch on you. also it's kinda cute how he won't change his ugly crab helmet unless the one you give him also covers his face kek
Yall are turning me to the dark side.
The dark elf side.
It's the best
OP complaining about uthgerd,
I dont really steal, but I do kill innocents with mine around. I didn't know they would attack you if they didn't like that. I learned the hard way lol.

I did the Erandur cultust quest and I'm playing as a dunmer fighter. I spared Erandur and realized that not only can he be your follower but that he is indestructible because he is an essential NPC. I have decided to rp that he is my dad and we're adventuring together in an effort to raise enough money to save Solstheim. He has a lot of regrets and fatherly advice and his funny little beard reminds me of my own dad hehe. I love to give him cool items to help with our journey and I'm decking him out in great gear!

Right? I just want a hot punk dunmer bf who'll join me getting high on skooma, have freaky sex, then make forbidden blood sacrifices to Dagon.

Get Special Edition….or the upcoming anniversary edition coming on Skyrim's 10th birthday (11/21). It seems the AE version is the same as SE except it includes all of Bethesda's inhouse Creation Club content.>>157399
I have such a soft spot for Argonians.>>157420
Sorry, this pic activates my autism.
Wouldn't quite agree with this, this image is massively pigeon holeing every culture into a single human counterpart while ignoring what the lore actually says. The Bosmer don't strike me as Native American at all, there are skilled archers in every culture, for instance. They strike me as traditional forest elves but with a return to darker roots because they engage in cannibalism (because they are not allowed to harm plantlife) and are supposed to have monstrous true forms (but these have never played a part in the games). They participate in Wild Hunts which are a strongly Northern European motif.
Argonians are just bizarrely alien. They don't take bizarre 'drugs', they take the hallucinegenic sap from Hist Trees which is vital to their physical development, those trees are sort of like their patron gods/their creators. One of their defining cultural traits is that they originate from Black Marsh, described as swampland that most other races just cannot survive in.
Calling Dunmer Buddhist is just strange because they have ancestor worship as well as the Tribunal (three Dunmer mortals who fashioned themselves as Gods) or they otherwise worship traditionally 'evil' Daedric Princes. They have feuding family Houses. Their aesthetics aren't very SEA to me.
Altmer aren't particularly Japanese at all besides concept art of them in kimonos and katanas, I think in ESO they do have pagoda-like buildings, but otherwise they're like typical snooty magic elves who care about pure bloodlines and class.
Orcs aren't nomadic at all. They live in small splintered strongholds of one chief with multiple wives if they haven't intergrated into foreign places.
TES is known for being a complex, beautiful mess that can't be mapped 1:1 on real life, no offence to whoever made this but this image callong these 'inspirations' does the lore a disservice.

i hope i will live long enough to see elder scrolls 6. i would love a game set in elsweyr, i love the khajiits so much>>157915
i used to always rush to find kharjo in every game, now if i play i always have inigo by my side altho he's a mod. i think he's one of the most well-made companion mods ever
cicero is also fun
anyways who are your favorite waifus/husbandos? i freaking love brynjolf!
Yes, I agree with you; I love everything sumerian so I love dunmer, the image above looks like someone who hadn't played Morrowind made it, how could anyone look at that city full of freakin ziggurats and think of east asia>>158174

i tried playing skyrim once, i bought it off steam and i refunded it after 2 hours. sad bc i really like the fantasy world, ie nothing else comes close to how much i've played WoW in my life, and other than that i like games like fallout, diablo, etc. is it possible i just didn't like skyrim at all because i just don't like first person games?

I'm so peeved right now. I play on ps3(poor bitch) and viarmo is glitched. He keeps carrying around that damn torch from the burning of king loaf. He never puts it down. Everywhere he goes he takes the torch. Inside? Torch. Eating? Torch. Sleeping? Torch. Its fuking annoying.
People have said that apparently Bethesda's said they keep making ports of skyrim bc ppl keep buying it.
But I wouldn't say that it's your fault es6 is delayed.
Let's be honest, clean cut games nowadays are a thing of the past. Developers want to make something they can milk the shit out of and make money. Microtransactions and shit. They dont want to make games like skyrim anymore, they'd rather just port skyrim since it takes way less money. But even if noone bought the ports Bethesda would still just pussyfoot around and never release a new game.
I'm guilty as well. I bought it on xbox when it first came out, then again when they released the dlc's, then on xbox one, then on steam, then on switch because it was on sale
if you want it you could probably find a private seller on ebay or somewhere selling it and it might not "count" as a sale towards bethesda
>>161474>first game I played properly as a kid
Ugh, I know it's 10 years old this November but still. Way to make me feel old.
Is it really the type of game you'd play on the go though?

This probably sounds pathetic, but sometimes I get legitimately sad that Skyrim isn't real. I will never be a badass adventurer who travels from town to town going to different taverns and shops, meets different people, gets rich from exploring caves, does amazing quests, slays magical beasts, saves the world from dragons, uses magic etc. playing Skyrim makes real life seem so dull by comparison. I have thought about playing Skyrim VR for a more immersive experience but I watched a review and I don't think I would like it that much, plus the floating hands look kind of ridiculous to me. Also I would have to buy a VR headset and rebuy Skyrim for like the seventeenth time. No thanks.
No I feel you, I'm more into sci-fi than fantasy but I play games for the same reason. To be the cool badass I can't be in real life.
There's lots of other RPG's out there though. Skyrim isn't the be all end all.
I'm sad this (I assume it's Males of Skyrim) never got ported to SE, I know how to port very basic mods but whew lad I'm not touching anything with dozens and dozens of NPC face records.
IDK if I'm just retarded because I've been trying for months in and off to make a custom follower because we need more hot male characters but something always goes wrong even though I understand most of the documentation out there.
someone has converted it, found it under original mod's the comments. i hope it works for you!https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jmfcvO0c0HX-EXFe7ltJ-u0H3vc7rXX6/view

I kind of wanna play Oblivion again, but I am so spoiled by Skyrim's graphics and world and the fact that it's easier I just want to go play Skyrim.
Also, is Morrowind hard? I've never played it but I heard it was really hard, like you had to spend a really long time fighting rats in the sewer just to build up enough strength to play the game.
I didn't like the RNG in Morrowind so I just cheaped out and played with god mode on. But there is a difficulty slider and if you bother to build your character correctly I'm sure it's not that hard.
The setting is a lot more unique than Skyrim or Oblivion so it still has that going for it.

I love shit like this. My personal tinfoil is that Bretons are inspired by actual Bretons (from ex-Armorica/Brittany). In fantasy, elves are often associated with Celts and Briton-celtic culture, the fact that Bretons have elf-blood might be a direct hint at the Briton blood of irl Bretons. Also the fact that they’re good mages might be a ref to druid Merlin whose legend is linked to Brittany with the Broceliande forest>>157380
I like khajiits too because it's not difficult to make a cute one without mods kek
