RIP Titus II. A good dude but on the wrong side of history, just like Tullius.

:tongue:

Anyone who stands in front of me is on the wrong side of history. I killed fifteen people just to get the name of the Gourmet from that one chef in Markarth.

That's usually how things end when it comes to the PC's.

^^To be fair, we actually have no idea how his death is going to be viewed down in Cyrodiil. The Elder Council seems shady, but I couldn't tell you how they're going to play it up. Maybe its some desperate gambit to make him a martyr and unite Cyrodiil, or they're all a bunch of corrupt toadies trying to seize power for themselves and the Empire promptly collapses. Titus is going to be dead at any rate.

BTW, Save the Dark Brotherhood does allow you to get everyone out of there once the Penitatus hits the shack.

You misunderstand. I wasn't trying to save anyone.

I went to the chef. I asked him who the Gourmet was. He told me. I killed him. Two people in his chef room saw me and started screaming about murder. I killed them. I opened the door and there were two dogs outside, so I killed them. Some Thalmors saw me, so I killed them. Down the hall were a couple of guards. I killed them. On my way outside I killed a few more and then killed every guard I saw on my way to the main gate. I killed a few random people that I passed on the road. There were some travelling merchants from a mod walking along the road near the sanctuary. Guess what happened.

After I killed the Gourmet, before I went to make dinner, I went around Solitude feeding people frenzy potions.

I am officially Bored of Skyrim Again, so I'm deleting everything. The game, saves, mods, all of it. I probably won't touch it again until I build a new rig and get some insane graphics out of the game and really push the engine to its limits.

I've had this guy for like 100 hours. Goodnight, sweet prince.

A retrospective.  SPOILER: Show

I have will probably not boot it up again until the "skywind" mod is done. Asside from the mutually exclusive stuff I've already done everything there is to do with my one character.

Yeah, me too. Wrapped up my play-through in early November (108 hours all up, about the same as Chuckman) even though there is sill a metric fuck-ton of content left to do in this particular save. Can't be bothered to do much outside of the main quest(s) and DLC. Hell, I didn't even get 'round to visiting Markarth. Not once. Now I'm just biding my time 'til Skywind. Arteme did manage to supersede my original character from 2011 as the Last Dragonborn in my personal canon though, so there's that as well.

When I build a new comp, or upgrade my current one, I'm going to have a dedicated Skyrim drive to properly take advantage of Mod Organizer's profiles feature.

Kinda tempted to do a minimalist 'kaworu' run, using no equips with relevant properties and relying entirely on spells like wards and bound weapons. Just blundering about being socially awkward and naked to my enemies save the powers of my manifest soul.

I've already done Shinji, Rei, Asuka, gendo and Misato runs on bathesda games. I suppose that means I'll be playing skywind as mari. :D

For Skywind I'm most likely going to shelve the idea of trying to recreate Escua, my Nerevarine. Instead, I was thinking something entirely new. A native Ashlander maybe, Maeonit Esarnatu-lu, sundered from his cultural home when he was young, now returning only to be referred to as "Outlander". All the beautiful armours the TES Renewal team have made have me inspired; I want to make the most of the Chitin, Dreugh, Netch and Ashlander wares.

That sounds like such fun! Except I wouldn't be able to stand to play as Kaworu if I couldn't recreate his appearance faithfully enough, and from my understanding it's all but impossible to make a character who looks under 30.

This reminds me of something I really appreciated about the classic Fallouts: Because everything was zoomed out and low-detail, it was easy to pretend that the characters looked however I wanted. All it took to make a Vash or Knives character was blond hair.

Now I have managed to play Fallout 3 perfectly fine as both of those guys with close-enough approximations of their appearances, but in Skyrim it'd probably be a struggle just to get a character who looks to be in the right age group.

I'm sure there are mods to add both snow elves and children as playables for all our space Jesus needs. Probably vampire as well for the eyes and extra paleness. Definately a Thalmor sympathizer... At first. Which follower would be the best sad Shinji though? That goofy 'slayer' kid from rorikstad? Sven?

* Create the character under ECE using the YGNord race (this is commonly used for more Asian-looking characters). He should be at least 1 unit less than normal size, and body weight at around 0.
* Use KS Hairs or Kijiko Hair Pack then tint the hair white.
* I think there's also a body texture pack that gives a smoother look.

BTW, it seems that by passing day there's always the temptation of DA:I hovering around, all the while it'll be some time before the next installment or FO4 comes out.

TK Children has a playable child race that looks like actual adolescents and not weird putty monstrosities.

Kind of, but not really. More so reaching its logical conclusion. The purpose of this run-through was to finally play the Dawnguard and Dragonborn expansions, so I can check those of the list of things to do for TES. Like I mentioned, there's still a lot of quests I can do, just that a lot of them are still fresh in my memory and it would feel like rote or chore grinding through 'em again - or that they don't really line up with the story of the character. Elsewise I have too many piles of books, comics, TV shows and anime to work on in the interim. So for me it's 'til Skywind then, I guess.
