I want to blog but I’m feeling rather uninspired at the moment, so I thought I’d try one of the 30 day challenges that pop up on Tumblr every now and then (link to skyrim challenge). Except… I’m going to be doing 1 post a week, so to avoid this turning into a 6 month marathon, I’ll tackle a few questions at a time…
1 – Which race did you choose?
My first character was a Bosmer. I really disliked the model for the female Bosmer though and she spent most of her time with a hood on so I could pretend her face didn’t exist. A while later I found a fantastic mod set (somewhere in this mod post) and ended up making a female Nord with pointy ears who I pretended was a Bosmer… Much better 🙂
2 – Mage, Warrior, Rogue or mixed class?
oh totally a rogue… Honestly, if one-shotting someone or thing from stealth ever gets old (or not funny), it’s time for me to retire from gaming 😉
3 – Favourite Quest Line.
The Thieves Guild quest line is actually one of the best questlines I have ever played through. I just loved the characters, the intrigue, the sneaking, the thieving, the dungeon delving… and I ended up with lots of shinies displayed in the Thieves hideout and being Guild Master.
4 – Favourite Quest Mission.
I have resisted the temptation to yet again reference the Thieves Guild and so I’ve gone with one of the final quests in the main Dragonborn questline. Questing though Sovngarde was amazing, the zone was stunning and meeting up with Skyrim’s past heroes was quite a blast. I loved the hall itself – absolutely massive… was very fun fighting a dragon alongside Skyrim’s finest
5 – Favourite Faction
Well, obviously the Thieves Guild… I feel quite boring now… The sneaking and thieving has long been my favourite playstyle with Elder Scrolls though – it’s a huge part of why I like the series. I did like the Bard’s College as well though, after I’d found the evidence of the original happenings of the legend I was asked to investigate, I had to make up a song. OK it was a multiple choice but even so. I did wonder why they were asking me and did manage to resist temptation to put the silly answer (only because I didn’t want to re-load and start again…)
