Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    one of the things i really fucking love about this game is how people will comment on what i'm wearing

    'light armor, eh? good for sneaking and getting away in a hurry. i like your style.'

    'hey, you're like me! one-handed weapons are the way to go - greatswords are just too goddamn slow'

    preach on, brother

    I like using my dragonborn powers indoors and then having pissy guards coming and telling me off

    Also, have not found a good one-handed weapon yet but then I've only played for like 3 hours so

    I wish there was a little more thought put in to which responses they'd use, though. All I ever hear is the two-handed chatter, but my one-handed skill is 65 and my two handed is like, 30. Guards seem to enjoy talking about my least-used skills, because they go on and on about my sneakiness and archery to my beefy warrior in orcish armor wielding a war axe who is the opposite of stealthy.

    the overall theme and quest lines are pretty top-notch. the leveling system seems less dumb

    Completely blows them both the fuck out of the water. It goes a long way towards improving the series' characteristic flaws.
