    Is it just me or do poisoned weapons not have any affect on my enemies while on horseback? I'm trying to assassinate someone by running in on my horse and slicing them with my enchanted, poisoned sword but it seems to do no poison effects. None. Their skin just turns the appropriate color and nothing happens. No damage (besides the damage that hitting them with a sword does). I've tried frostbite spider venom, paralysis, and regular poison and nothing has any effect.
    I have that problem with regular combat. Poison is pretty much useless. Paralysis however, that was always a fun potion to fool around with. Pickpocket people with it and watch them freeze and tip over. Friggin hilarious!

    I was still able to take out my target. A certain fireball flew toward her from the mountains, hehehe.

    I've also had a weird bug with my 460 where my performance in all games goes down dramatically, after I restart it's fine.
    I get something similar with my 560. My game performance just tanks and I have to restart.

    I did a check in my gfx-card monitor program and it said that I was running at half clock-speed. (Which is what happens when your card idles, it clocks down when it's not being used). It seems to get stuck in idle mode every so often.

    Ok, so it seems stamina potions don't work on horseback either. I'm going to assume potions in general are completely broken when on horseback.

    I noticed the same with my 560, but alt-tabbing out of and back into the game resolves it.

    So I was walking to Ald'Ruhn from Caldera when I helped a naked Nord fight a witch to get back his axe. I managed to pickpocket the axe while the witch was knocked out. Unfortunately that didn't end combat with the witch who kept chasing me all the way to past a paralysed Nord. Then a Cliff Racer flew down and killed me in one hit.

    I reload my new quest save, this time kill the witch and then go to help the paralysed Nord, who gave me a hat. In victory, I put on the hat and admired how silly it looked on my character. Then a Cliff Racer flew down and killed me in one hit.

    I remember first using paralysis. In cloud ruler temple, I was looking through my expelled and discovered lovers kiss, something I had forgotten about. Deciding to try it out as it didn't damage, I used it on Baurus I believe. It started with him sat on a chair eating with the other blades. He then turned green and began to fall sideways into his chair, as he completed a full rotation the effect wore off and he clipped into his chair and screamed in pain as he died. Still flaing the other blade began to stare. Baurus then popped out of the chair and landed on the table, knocking of a fair amount of food. The other blades carried on eating for a bit until they all stood up simultaneously , screamed murder! And transformed into to blade armoured guy and tore me apart. A few were killed by other blades. After I died the survivors sat back down and continued eating until Martin walk in and said "Oh!" before turning around and leaving.

    End scene.

    So while I was doing some misc quests, I noticed that I had Call Dragon. Thing is though, I haven't gotten that far into the main quest (I'm only up to the part where you decide    Paarthurnax's fate   ), could it possibly be a Workshop mod that gave me Call Dragon?

    That's not technically part of the main quest. It's related, but not really part of it.

    ...Well, for me it wasn't.

    I know it was Falkreath. I just assumed he'd be smart enough to know that I was talking about Falkreath. I thought it would be pretty obvious.

    Hey guys.

    I'm hoping to do a computer upgrade this week because of Skyrim. I can already run the game on ultra settings with a smooth framerate, but I start to have performance problems if I try to add a few graphics enhancements. So yeah, I think an upgrade might be due

    My current system:

    Intel Core i5-2400 3.10Ghz
    8GB Ram
    GTX 560 1GB Graphics card

    Would I benefit most from upgrading to a card with more memory? Any suggestions? Thanks

    Try this before you drop any money.

    It might help.

    Edited:

    Also, to answer your question, you're going to want to upgrade your GPU first. HD texture packs take up a lot of VRAM so you should look at cards that have 1.5GB or 2GB VRAM.

    That's fine, I'm in a habit of fiddling around with wording ages after I actually make a post.

    for some reason my game likes to take almost 5 minutes loading into a new area, as in it lags like a motherfucker for a few minutes after it finishes loading. And I have no idea how to make it not do that >:

    I re-forested the area around Falkreath. But I couldn't upload it. It was another guy's work that I continued. But he has the file so he can update, but he hasn't updated yet.

    It's been a week.

    The cities in Skyrim are lacking in ambience and atmosphere. In Oblivion, people would be actively talking to each other, and there would be a lot more people.

    Well, they did just finish changing the server code, I'd give it a while to get up to speed. They're probably doing a test run as well, so it's definitely going to be slow for now.

    Not gonna lie, first time I was at Morthal it was actually quite plesant. A soft evening snow then coming to a small settlement in the middle of the wilds. Felt cool.

    Of course said settlement doesn't actually have much going for it, but it has a nice sense of atmosphere there the first time you visit it.

    Yeah, there are times where the current time of day and weather make for a pleasant, or beautiful scene. I had a screenshot of such an occasion, but it got deleted when I was clearing my screenshots folder a while ago.

    I ended up spending a lot of time in Falkreath when I was a member of the Dark Brotherhood.

    All three of those cities are sure as shit better to spend a week in than Markarth, though.

    Next on my list of mods to do: A ghost town with a really deep / large crypt. A few floors will have ENEMY OVERLOAD. Certain spaces will have a trigger that when you pass through it, skeletons will be everywhere. They won't be hard, but there will be a giant smash-fest.
