      The best quest I've done so far is the "House of Horrors". Do it especially if you do one-handed weapons. It's a fun quest, but the reward is awesome. You get the "Mace of Molag Bal", which is a decent daedric mace that drains magicka, and stamina I believe, and will also trap souls.

      I dont know about your other quest. But I believe House of Horrors is picked up in Markarth. You walk straight up the middle between the buildings, and you should see 2 guys talking outside of "Abandoned House" about Daedra, and he'll ask you if you have seen anyone going in or out of the house. Then you can assist him in scouting out the house.

      I've been using a chest that was abandoned by a character during the main quest. My stuff hasn't been deleted *yet*, but it might be at some point.

      Is this anything like the Haunted Mansion from Anvil in Oblivion?

      Not really. It's a Daedric quest, so of course it has to do with Oblivion, and evil stuff, but there's no ghosts or anything. You will be doing some less than angellic things for Molag Bal, and his mace is your reward.

      Is anyone else have insane issues with Steam?

      Midnight at launch... I did not have permission to install steam.
      Friday morning, server not avail.
      Friday afternoon, some bs .exe could not be found.
      Friday tmp could not be executed.

      Finally Friday evening I got it to work by deleting all the reg, the .blob, and admin executing the steam.exe while in safemode...

      I am the only user on this PC and I am an admin. I turned off my A/V and I do not have a firewall.

      This computer i7, 8 GB, Radeon 6750M, only has Win 7 on it and Skyrim, so no conflicting programs.

      Steam worked flawlessly all weekend. Today however steam would not launch... So I just re did all the above steps wish me luck...

      On topic, I played Skyrim all weeked... I haven't gotten above lvl 12 because I can't make up my mind what character type to play. So now I have a One handed sword and shield heavy armor Redguard (Salah al-Din Yusuf), a thief light armor bow khajit (Sterling Archer), a destruction/ restoration High Elf (Aleksandr the Wise), a two hander heavy armor Nord female (Salene), and a true Barbarian light armor two hander axe (William Wallace).

      Love this game!

      Don't forget a taste of blood, you get a sweet ring, you get to eat people for faster regeneration and the guards complain about your breath. It's not cannibalism if i'm an orc right?

      Dremmer stuff is always good. I'm trying to get my smithing up so I can make dragon scale armor. I'd assume that'd be pretty good, but idk yet.

      You are dragonborn, not trollborn.

      So about dragon bones and dragon scales...I'm assuming they're for the dragon armor and not much else? I know they're valuable, but I've been hoarding mine in my house in Winterfell, just in case I can get something good out of it.

      Yeah, they are for smithing. I haven't found any other potential use for them yet.

      That stuff reacts to fire spells? Wow, that makes perfect sense, but I had no idea.

      Also: My shouts are broken. Anything I don't learn from an NPC or quest won't work, no matter how many souls I devour. Yay, broken content.

      Yes, PC, and google agrees that I'm not alone. Everybody seems to think we're just stupid and haven't progressed, but I'm practically done with the main quest and my shouts are still broken.

      You should report it on the bethesda forums... There is an official bug forum, and I dont see it on there yet.

      I just started it. I got it in Windhelm. There's a little orphan kid who's trying to summon the Dark Brotherhood, and wants them to kill his foster mother. Take the quest, kill her, and just continue on what you're doing because they'll find you.

      Anyways...not sure if anyone else noticed, but there's little X's on the physical map that comes the game. They're treasure chests. Just an FYI.

      Germans are white people. Look up #84 on the list of things white people like: Gear. Lots of Gear. We even have gear farkles over here. -Atomicalex

      Wait, you can become a werewolf?

      Damn. I'm hearing so much about this game, I'm feeling like I have to play it.

      I just can't commit all the time to it. I'm hearing people having played 60 hours and barely touching the actual storyline.

      If you casually play this game it will last years I've only gone to one city after the beginning and I haven't left it yet to search out other cities as I'm still questing here, so yeah it's a big ass game that will require prenuptual vows

      And that's the beauty of it! You don't have to commit hours of time to have a great experiance with it. There is no wrong way to play. You can see different content every time you play, you can go in any direction you want.

      I'm still slowly progressing on the College quest, in Labyrinthian. After downing my first dragon (!) I'm moving ever toward some booming voice/shout that drains my magicka and raises the hair on the back of my neck with each shout. What really sucks is I cannot carry all the goodies that drop! I will have to run back through it all and collect them so I can sell/disenchant to my heart's delight.

      I only played an hour last night. It flew by. Amazing game!
