Last night I was playing the Rebels plotline and the Jarl is having me go around and liberate Skyrim from the Imperials. I literally walked in and killed all 30 or so soliders by myself! It's extremely fun but man is it easy. I'm assuming by the time I get to level 100 smithing and 100 two-handed nothing will stop me.

It got really easy for me, Im at 36 but I turned the difficulty up to expert and dragons are incredibly difficult now. The fights are epic.

I'm so PO'd that I never have enough money to buy a house. I don't even care what it looks like or how big it is as long as it has storage. The only place that I know of that's for sale is the house in Whiterun and I don't have a spare 5k lying around.
You could always find a, "Wooden Mask." It leads you to a free-storage room (Although, since you don't actually own it, stuff could disappear... I don't know because I haven't bothered to keep anything important for long.)

I did the opposite and aided the Imperials, but I understand what you're saying. Once in a while you come across some Godly enemy NPCs which might take you by surprise and kill your right away (Usually the Dragon Priests that bombard me with fireballs.) Otherwise, you can take enemies down with a quick thwack, a lightning-bolt, or a shot from your bow. I still have trouble with Falmers and those Chaurus pets of theirs (If I named it right :/) Spoiler of Spoiling (Click to show)
I aided the Imperials and the Jarl which caused Ulfric and his men to storm DragonsReach, where you protect the city from raiding Stormcloaks who usually get killed by one-two hits with a falmer bow/arrow (Which is fairly weak.) I played as a mage, so I had a staff of firebolt and could usually take down a group since they crowded together when trying to get through the main-gate.

I can't believe I wasted a skill point on dwarven to not make a single thing with it. frown.gif

Crafting dwarven armor is like finding an unlimited cash generator. The process goes like this:
  1. Go to a dwemer ruin.
  2. Pick up every 'large metal plate' 'bent metal plate', and additional 2lb dwemer metal objects you can find.
  3. When you've taken every plate, pick up the 'solid metal' bars that are sitting around.
  4. Smelt all of your dwarf-junk. The 2lb plates melt into 3lbs of ingots, in defiance of any scientific principle of conservation of mass. It must be magic.
  5. Craft a bunch of armor.
  6. Take armor to workbench.
  7. ???
  8. Profit! With no trading perks, I pull 400 gold per body armor.

***WARNING***

DO NOT under ANY circumstances fast travel to Japhet's Folly! Japhets Folly is it's own "world" in the game and once you are there you cannot fast travel or leave in any way other than ending the quest with Adelaisa, who wont be there if you fast travel there on your own.

http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Rise_in_the_East

I just nearly lost 6 levels and nearly 7 hours of playtime because I had autosave on, and as soon as I fast travelled to Japhet's I had no way of getting out. The only way I was able to escape was to force fast travel using the console, and even then I lost my dog companion mad.gif

Before meeting lydia I met another assistant: she challenged me to a fists-only-brawl and beat her way easy. It was in a bar in white run. She offered to help me out and didn't charge any money.

Anyway I was doing a dungeon, in the way as usual, and accidentally killed her. I searched her and found a key to her house. Could probably just do a trade and get the key but anyway I found her house in white run and now i am dropping all my stuff there. There's several chests and dressers etc. in there. Just hope there aren't AI thieves since I can't (as far as I can tell) re-lock the door.

So there ya go: free house in white run. Seems like her name was Uthgerd the Unbroken.

Anyone on here played around with a Khajiit brawler type yet? I'm thinking about making one; Taking advantage of the racial unarmed bonus and the heavy armor bonuses with a heavy dose of conjuration for Atronachs.

I wonder if the NPCs have anything interesting in their houses when alive.

Well, I know what I'm doing when I play next.

My character is a Khajiit. This is my first TES game ever, so I wasn't sure what to pick.

I really hate those damned Chaurus!!!! Those things are nasty and they are pretty tough, however, since I've gotten the perk where I can pretty much one-hit kill anything with a strong two handed attack(sometimes even decapitating them) they became pretty easy as well. Still tougher than most enemies but overall much easier now.

Anyone else notice that most caves are pretty pointless to explore already? I really haven't gotten anything too significant or amazing by doing all of that work.
