I was doing the quest line "Laid to Rest" in which you have to go and kill the Master Vampire to avenge the little girl's mother & her. I killed the master vampire except I got bitten apparently in the process. Now that I completed the quest, if I go to turn it in the guards stop me and force me to pay a bounty (I guess because I'm a vampire?).

How do I go about doing this so I can once again go into cities and such without guards seeing I'm a vampire? I have no problem being a vampire, I think it's awesome, especially if I can go sneak into people's houses at night and suck their blood tongue.gif

you have to feed! the longer you put it off the more and more you will start to hear you look sick and so fourth, then you eventually become starved and everyone will try to kill you! by the sounds of it your close to that point now.
If your not game for being a vampire, there is a way to cure it once your passed the first 48 hours of being able to use a cure disease.

Thanks! Response in the spoiler.

How exactly do I go about feeding? I want to be a vampire, it's so awesome. I just need to know how to feed.

It appears my game is broken. I got a random crash this morning and decided to go look for some new mods to install. Made it so I couldn't fast travel. So I basically reinstalled the game and started from scratch. I installed the mods I had before, and I still can't fast travel. I can leave an area and it loads fine, but I can't fast travel.
The list of mods I'm using are:
Landscape Texture Pack
Vurt's Skrim Flora Overhaul
Enhanced Night Sky
Realistic Water
Realist Smoke and Fire
Realistic Rain Ripples
Detailed Faces, Eyes, Lips and Bodies
No More Blocky Faces
Enhanced Blood Textures
Armor Improvement
Improved Dragon Textures
Anyone else using any of these? Anyone know of any known issues with some of these? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You've used the LAA (Large Address Aware), right? It allows Skyrim to use more than 2GBs of RAM which makes it so Skyrim can handle mods.

I do agree they're tougher than the basic ones, though. Those weaklings only take ~2-3 power strikes before becoming giant soulless skeletons.

Elders are not that bad. Ancients were another story for me, especially one that I had 0 resistance to. I'm a Nord with innate 50% frost resist and 30% more from armor, but the Ancient Dragon that I went up a against was a fire breathing one. I was about level 46-48 at the time with 400 health and one breath of fire was enough to deplete my health bar nearly twice. Mid breath, I would potion up to full when near death and his fire would continue burning me back down to a sliver of my health.

Luckily most of the time he was attacking my seemingly immortal horse, otherwise I don't think I could have beaten him without a lot of reloads or within a reasonable amount of time. I'm not an archer, only had 50 or so in the skill with a 32 damage bow enchanted with both 20 frost and 10 lightning damage, but it was my only option. I think I went through 200+ arrows and all of my poisons, on Master difficulty of course.

I don't think I've fought an ancient dragon yet. I haven't had a decent challenge yet though, maybe I'll go look for one. Even the final boss fight was really easy.

LAA is dead as of the newest Steam update. Or, the way I did it (modifying the exe), no longer works.

In that case, I have something to look forward to on my next playthrough. I definitely want a bigger challenge.
Oh, also, someone should make horses mortal too (available to re-purchase once dead). Immortal beings are huge immersion killers(unless immortality is a part of the plot).
