    I would prefer the exact opposite.

    Start out with a mission to craft a makeshift weapon ... shanksmithing.

    Then, I have to scrounge together a stockpile of rat meat; I gotta have grub as I escape the prison through the sewers.

    While killing rats, I would multitask by using the shank to carve a set of lockpicks out of rat bones.

    After that, I would have to use my ad-hoc, rat-bone lockpick set to escape my cell, shank the guard, confiscate his gear and escape into the sewers.

    Next stop, the nearest skooma dealer. Dunmer gotta hit the pipe, yo.

    After waking up from The Nod, I realize that I'm back in prison and I gotta get out again before the shakes set in and I can't make another shank.

    I call this ... The Elder Scrolls: Recidivism.

    I was catching up on a couple of pages and noticed you dudes talking about Landfall. What is that, because I don't remember ever hearing or reading about it ever? If it's Dragonborn stuff, put it in spoilers and say so please.

    it's not dragonborn stuff


    the real basic version is that the world is held up/together by the towers

    e.g. the white-gold tower in the imperial capitol, the adamantine tower in high rock, red mountain in morrowind, the throat of the world in skyrim

    there are more, I don't know how many there are but I'm guessing there's at least one for every province in tamriel


    when all of the towers are destroyed or deactivated the world will either end or get real shitty


    landfall


    this is what the thalmor are working towards, their ultimate goal is to undo reality because they just really can not deal with being mortal

    red mountain and I think the white-gold tower are down, and presumably they've taken care of whatever towers are in elfland

    I'm given to understand the thalmor are working to destabilize skyrim so they can deactivate the throat of the world


    that's something that I think you have to put together for yourself though

    in fact I don't know if landfall's ever mentioned outside of the in-game books (I only know about it because of this thread) but the gradual failure of the towers seems to be a running theme in the elder scroll series so presumably at some point that will come to a head

    Landfall could work as a ES title, like they used Oblivion for Cyrodiil.

    Ooooh, that, okay. I've read about it here before and a bit in-game, I think it would make for a pretty cool ES game if that was a thing you were actively trying to stop.

    But there would be no starting mission or tutorial. You just wake up in your cell and the game starts.

    Spoiler:

    Here is my bizarre problem with Skyrim: I get annoyed when my gear disappears into the ether when I equip something else. Like, it shouldn't bother me. It happens all the time in games. But it does. So my current character uses only daggers and spells, since she can easily hide daggers on her person.

    So, I find destruction/2H to be really annoying, because my massive beat-stick just keeps disappearing.

    Its pretty late but there is a mod for that.

    I think the prisoner intro works just fine because it means literally nothing but allows you to start with a blank slate and work up from there. Creating an established character with a backstory doesn't really work for the kind of games the Elder Scrolls series predominantly are.

    I mean, there are plenty of ways to work around introducing a character with no backstory, but being a prisoner has worked so far and is only a thing you even need to consider for all of 5 minutes.

    I wish games didn't start with a tutorial and just threw you into the game. Make the tutorial a separate part of the game accessible from the main menu and stop forcing me to sit through it every time I start a new game.

    Yes, I know the ES games have modded out the beginning parts but not all games allow modding or have modding communities.

    the fundamental religious difference between humans and elves is that humans see the mortal world as a good thing while elves see it as a trap

    in this respect, the Redguards agree with the elves

    I had this problem trying to do the Companions questline early. On the first big mission there are two deathlords at the same time. "guys? guys? I'm level 5"
