For my 3 day weekend I’ve plunged myself into the lands of Skyrim. I’ve been going on some bizarre adventures, downloading mods to enhance the experience, and of course doing some light hearted console commands to make things more fun. Some of my fellow dragonborn buddies have been watching me stream my experience. We’re all in agreement, I have one hell of a female khajiit character.
Yes, I am literally the dragonborn… cyborg/human/cat/dragon? The wings are a mod I found on the nexus (it’s also on Steam) that lets you float around with functioning animated wings. You can make a potion at any cooking pot with various ingredients. With another additional mod you can also use a flying spell. Which is funny since I recently learned how to breathe fire and ice.
It consumes a lot of stamina when I use it though. So I had to hack a bit to sustain my long fun flights. Only a tad though.
Of course, even before I found the wings I still had fun traveling on foot. The scenery is beautiful, the quests have been fun (even though so far I’ve been finding them and solving them by accident) and the fighting is always fun. I’ve been doing a combination of regular fighting and stealth.
Stealth has been funny for me, especially when they’re sitting in a chair.
I’ve also learned what it’s like to have a companion, and how annoying it is. I almost always bring Lydia along for my own amusement. She’s like my own personal Kenny from South Park. She’ll die multiple times and then eventually get better. I felt a bit generous though and decided to give her some armor to protect her and a better sword. I found these playermodels at this site. I plan on downloading more, and maybe through some hax magic I might add them to other NPC’s for shits and giggles.
Lots of the mods I installed are ones that I stumble upon while exploring. There are a ton I haven’t found yet, but this one was totally worth finding today.
Yes, I can now craft joints and a dragon bong… Legally! They also have a nice collection of plants… and a guy that stands outside in them enjoying the scenery.
All in all I’ve really been having a blast in this game. I’ve even been reading the books… while streaming my gameplay, if only to prove that at least one person in the United States has some reading comprehension. :v
