Dragonborn's great. You get Solstheim, a bunch of new questlines, and a much better antagonist than Alduin
(two of them, in fact)
. Dawnguard doesn't add as much, but the quest is good. The constant vampire attacks can get annoying, though.

Isn't Dawnstar's house just in the middle of nowhere?

Well, yes. But it's a nowhere with snow.

Morrowind, why are you so broken at times?
You'd beat out Daggerfall as my favorite if it wasn't for hand to hand knock down, magic, and agility light sword builds being absolutely overpowered.

Are their any mods that actually try to balance the combat, not the mod that changes it so every swing lands?
Debates on the internet lead to vastly unresearched opinions masked as arguments, inversely debate in person leads to more educated and researched arguments. You have a super highway full of information, use it.

hey teens if a youtuber is making life simple and understandable then he or she is lying.

As all the names and places i have taken from your life!

I usually do dawnguard at various points alongside the main story and then finish it about half way through.

It's a good ending storywise, but a much stronger DLC to go for in the early game, gameplay-wise. In the game I've been playing recently, I did my best to get Dragonborn going pretty early. The rewards from the Black Books are really strong and always useful. The earlier you get those, the better, I say. The Dremora Merchant, specifically, served his purpose admirably, especially before I got my Thieves Guild fence network set up.

I'm thinking of making a spellthief in Skyrim.
Illusion and alteration using thief/assassin, to be specific.

I really miss the alteration in Oblivion. It just seemed so much better and more useful in a bunch of situations.
”All Lives Matter” is at best an ignorant dismissal of people who actually care about lives.
At best.

I might make an actual signature one of these days. But for now, and probably for a long time, you’re stuck with this short, simple, modest sig.
Thank you for clicking on the thing, though.

Here is my song, for the asking
Ask me and I’ll play

I've actually used spells maybe twice or thrice in my 200-something hours. Never really saw a use for them.

So i have Skyrim on Steam, and i automatically got the special edition when it came out, ive been thinking of going back to Skyrim and im wondering whether or not i should install the special edition or not, i can still get mods for it, just have to use that nexus thing, but im wondering if it would be of any real difference since i have access to a fuckton of mods via steam for the regular one.

Guess ill just google and see what the special edition gives compared to the base regular one.

So i started Skyrim again with the random spawn mod, alongside many others, and it fecking spawned me in the middle of a forsworn camp, killed one and then ran like a bitch as archers and a hagraven attacked me from above and some lunatic with two swords charged me.

Almost ended just as it begun.

I play on a Playstation 3 so I don't use mods for either game.
In ancient times, men built wonders, laid claim to the stars and sought to better themselves for the good of all. But we are much wiser now.

If the road is easy, the destination is worthless.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.

I highly doubt my soul mate is living in Thailand and only a click away.
