    The elves think of themselves as very special, while at the end the differences between them and men are skull build and the fact that they are not cursed to live for a century at most. Dunno how Khajiits and Argonians fit into that, but seeing Khajiits have the same pantheon as both monkey species, they may be roughly the same in terms of soul, non-Mundus ancestry and shit.
    Aren't khajiits technically wood elves, or did I read the lore wrong?

    So, how do I go around spawning a quest-related book? In this case, the Dreamstride, I'm still stuck on this stupid Waking Glitchnightmare quest, the Dreamstride just isn't where it should be, there's absolutely no book on the thing it's supposed to be on.

    Not that I recall, Im fairly certain that they are descendants of large cats (cougars, jaguars, tigers, etc) in lore. That or large cats are just their "cousins" (though that doesnt stop sabre cats from mauling me all the time)

    Wood Elves and Khajiit were the same race until Azura changed some into Khajiit.

    Gorillas are our close cousins and if you get too close to one he will rip you apart.

    Yes, the dreaded gorilla that waits at the bottom of ravines and behind short hills to attack explorers every 50 feet.

    On that note, its a wonder that anybody is still fucking alive in Skyrim given the volume of bear, wolf, ice wolf, saber cat, troll, DARGON, frost troll, spriggan, bandit and spider attacks that you incur if you take more than 20 steps outside of town. Every time you get in a random non-hostile encounter with somebody on the road in skyrim, not 20 seconds later they literally get ambushed by a a bear or saber cat and die horribly.

    Its definitely worth it if you liked it. Only thing really wrong with oblivion would be the humdrum level scaling and the potato faces, but otherwise its highly enjoyable.

    The shivering isles expansion is particularly awesome and you'll get that with the GOTY

    So I met a Farmer guy who was bringing a cow as an offering for the giants, he assured me he doesn't need help and everything will be ok cause giants are his bros. Then I watched as he walked up to one and got smacked so hard he got stuck in a wall. Hilarious.

    What are some must have graphical and gameplay mods for Oblivion?Im getting it soon and i would like to know what mods i should have for it
    Practically required:
    Unofficial Oblivion Patch
    Oblivion Mod Manager or Nexus Mod Manager (either one)
    Fast Exit (prevents the crash on exit)
    Wrye Bash (advanced mod manager and more)
    Streamline (has multiple features that improve FPS)
    Operation Optimization (mod that lowers poly count on meshes to improve FPS; has no visual impact)

    Recommended:
    Qarl's Texture Pack (improves resolution of most textures)
    Oblivion Graphics Extender (adds modern graphic effects like SSAO)
    All Natural (environment mod that also allows time of day to affect indoor lighting; highly recommended)
    Oscuro's Oblivion Overhaul (amazing gameplay overhaul that adds many more items and changes level scaling to be similar to that of Morrowind; is easy to install compared to things like FCOM)
    Any custom race mod (default races look terrible no matter what mods you use)
    Enhanced Hotkeys (allows more hotkeys, adds chain-casting/autocasting; a must for any magic-based character unless you enjoy spending most of your time in your tab menu)
    Keychain (removes all of those keys cluttering up your inventory and puts them into a single item)
    Enhanced Vegetation

    Great but maybe not the best for everyone:
    DarkUId DarN (great UI mod, especially for large monitors)
    Realistic Leveling (removes allocating skills upon sleeping; attributes automatically increase with skills; luck increases with fame)
    Better Cities (looks great but can kill FPS)
    Unique Landscapes (also looks great but can also kill FPS)

    Good but I don't use them:
    Deadly Reflex (combat overhaul; Skyrim's combat and finishers are based on it; difficult to install)
    Unnecessary Violence (more combat overhaul stuff)
    FCOM (huge gameplay overhaul; very difficult to install)
    Realistic Fatigue (yes, it's realistic, but it's also a PITA)

    You perv:
    HGEC Body
    EVE stock clothing + OOO clothing replacer
    Armor mods
    Hair mods (unlike its Skyrim version, the coolsims hair pack isn't bugged to hell in Oblivion)

    Problem is, most good mods for Oblivion are a bitch to install, and there are so many mods for Oblivion.

    Also, force Anisotropic Filtering on in your video card's settings, as Oblivion has none by default and this causes blurry textures. Also note that Oblivion is a much more unstable and FPS-destroying game than Skyrim is, and you will probably experience weirdness no matter how good your rig is, especially when it comes to NPCs.

    In my experience, two-handers are both boring and not as good as one-handers.

    I have gotten so bored with this game, its like no other Bethesda RPG Ive tried. Ive gotten to around 100 or more hours and now I can't get myself to touch it. Theres just nothing to do. Ive done every major quest line bar the College of Winterhold. I feel like the game is just screaming at me to stop playing every time I load it up. Ive killed that same bandit in the same way a hundred times over. Ive gotten to the stage where dressing up as a half naked barbarian with no armour bar gloves and not even using enchanted weapons still makes the game absurdly easy. And no, I don't play the fucking moronic and redundant difficulty levels above normal because adding on massive amounts of health to basic enemies and increasing the damage you take by twice as much is not my idea of a satisfying challenge.

    Dragons I feel should of been more of an epic encounter once every few hours encounter that were different everytime and actually scared the shit out of you.

    Skyrim is supposed to be in civil war, ravaged and desparate on both sides of the conflict. Yet townsfolk never seem to give a shit beyond a few quickly repeated lines about their invaders. Not once in the entire game do you see a proper "army". The repetitive castle sieges are retarded, why the hell do the garrison's of every settlement rush to a ruin with not even a functioning gate to speak of everytime they get attacked? perhaps the Imperials wouldn't of lost every inch of their land in Skyrim in a week if they had actually considered concentrating their men at the gates at Solitude, and had not let them drink tea and have a final feast as the Stormcloaks just walk in to find the walls undefended, the gate unlocked and like 5 men standing around scratching their hairy arses.

    And then in the peace treaty:


    The first thing Jarl Ulfric demands is Markarth. Why, of all places would he want Markarth. Its on the other side of Skyrim. The moment that truce ends Markarth is surrounded and cut off. No supplies, no profit from the mine, no trade, and an easy target for Imperial forces. Every General and Leader in Skyrim is a hopeless joke that couldn't take over a sand castle if their lives depended on it.

    I am not a hoarder. It's just that the merchants are too fucking poor.

    Did you check uesp? It tends to have solutions for quests in the bug section.

    No.

    The part I need luck on is organizing everything.
    I managed to buy a horse and fast travelled to solitude. I panicked when I couldnt use the carriage and thought I had to walk.

    I just headbutt a ghost to death with a two-hander finishing move...Then I decapitated another one. A ghost. With a warhammer.

    I'm not wearing a helmet either, so I'm not sure if it hurt or not.

    I added a comment to a Nexus mod reporting bugs (clipping and weight scaling issues) and someone (not the mod creator) jumped down my throat saying that the issue in question is the intended design and that I was completely missing the point...

    I don't recall the community being this militant and sycophantic before Skyrim came out. If I get banned from the site for attempting to be helpful, I'm going to be a wee bit pissed.

    Something that I really wanted in this game the moment I pre-ordered it was the Fallout 3 trade system.

    You carry a ton of stuff to a merchant, neither of you have any gold - No way of trading. He will get your stuff for free and you will get nothing.
