That's been my experience, and trust me, I really tried to kill some of them...


This has actually been really annoying, I wish you could turn it off. Sometimes I just want to kill everyone in a village or camp, but unfortunately is just about *EVER* SINGLE ONE there's an NPC or two that just won't die.

Absolutely and it's actually been a major fact of why I've put the game down currently. After the 'main' quest, if you talk to the SPOILER Blades NPCs they ask you to kill someone, someone who I actually really liked and was quite sympathetic to. Not only were the arrogant, cold and dismissive of him they literally said "Kill X or you can get lost. We won't have anything more to do with you until then."

Fuck. You.

I am not their personal assassin, especially not to someone I liked. I probably spent an hour or so trying to find ways to kill them after that. Throwing them off mountains, beating them repeatedly to death, setting them on fire, surrounding them with monsters, nothing worked sadly. :(

There is already a mod that allows you to kill invincible children. I'm sure that it can be adapted to include other immortal NPCs.

So my google-fu is failing me. I know there was a tutorial online a few years back that showed people how to turn their unwanted AOL "trial" disks into pots (for plants), but I can't find it now.

Skyrim bricked my PS3. HDD failed, along with a YLOD (age isn't a factor, I'm assuming, as the console is less than 2 years old). At this point, I'm not even willing to trade it in or try and get it exchanged for another version, since some other poor sap might come into the Gamestop and pick up my (more likely than not, cursed) old copy of the game and end up bricking their PS3 too, so I'm looking for other things to do with the worthless piece of plastic. Which has now cost me right around $500.

So I highly doubt this is exactly venturing into spoiler territory by now, but if you have a PS3 and any other fucking option to play games on then buy Skyrim for those other options. If you value your sanity, you'll stay away from the PS3 version like the plague.

I've just got this and started, loving it so far.

I've run into one problem right now, though: I was using my companion Lydia to carry extra weight, but every now and then the dialogue menu options seem to mix up, and somehow I managed to accidentally send her home after taking 30 dwarven metal ingots off her and overburdening myself. I don't have much expendable enough to sell, I can't use the ingots right now to craft stuff (I was just upgrading a couple pieces of armor), it's the middle of the night, and I'm half the map away from where Lydia or the other companion I've had live. Arg.


Edit: ahh, making and selling some silver jewelry then turning some Leather into Leather Strips got me down just enough.

I carry with me +capacity-boots and necklace, in addition to a few strength potions. Helps get you to Whiterun in a hurry (closest vendor to quick travel point I've seen, at least).

Also of note, while I don't usually find the horses useful in this game, you can quick travel while on a horse even if you are overburdened.

So I've killed a few dragons out on the wild so far, but only just now found a location with a new shout. Turns out it says I need a dragon soul to unlock it - does this mean any dragon souls absorbed when I don't have a new shout waiting to go do nothing?


Also, my companions are pretty terrible for getting stuck on odd bits of terrain and not following me unless I go back and move around near them for a bit.

You should have still absorbed the Dragon Souls, I cant remember the exact button, but when you highlighted the shout that was still locked there was a button to press to choose to unlock it permanently with a soul.

Ah, thanks, that worked. I need to look more closely at the menus.

Does choosing to join the Stormcloaks or Imperial Legion affect your access to certain quests and locations? For example, if I sign up with the Legion will I be attacked if I try to visit Windhelm?


Unrelated, I'm not very good at roleplaying my character. I was meant to be playing a generally moral character, and yet somehow I wind up wielding a demonic mace and using the souls of humans to enchant my armor. And then there are times when I'm just plain not nice, like the triple cross I pulled on one unfortunate pair where I got two opposing quest rewards and the loot from killing both of them...

Ya you can. I joined the Stormcloaks and was still able to get a house in Solitude.
