Which was the first Elder Scrolls game you played?

Tuesday, 19 July 2011


For some reason I spend a lot of time on WoW, solely fishing. The reason as to why is beyond me.

Still, what I wanted to swing by you guys was the possibility that we might be allowed to go fishing in Skyrim. It is not something that the Devs have said as far as I know, nor anyone else for that matter. It is just that I noticed a little something.

Salmon Meat
As you might now, the lakes, the sea and other water crap will be teaming with life in the shape of fish, that are dynamic as far as I've gathered. Knowing this, I also happened to come across the picture on my right, featuring the meat of salmon, which is the most awesome kind of fish in the world.

Now this is just speculation, but could this mean that we will be allowed to fish? I mean, all of the meat should be  gatherable, right? And I doubt that there a salmon on the size of slaughterfish, so I don't see how else we should get a hold of it.

what do you guys think?

Meat makes the man

All men prefer a great big, bloody steak - Even those whom are allergic! Meat is the pinnacle of happiness, so don't you dare serve me vegetables! Mom!

Back when I played Gothic 3, there was an aspect that I found to be very RP engaging and that was the fact that you actually had to cook the meat in your possession, before it was edible. Or I guess it was edible, it just made you sick and restored like +1 health.

Once we sweep the beasts and animals of Skyrim off their feet (not in a romantic way, but in a stab --> push way,) we may want to cut off the lumps of their carcass known as meat, in order to eat --> Gain health. But hey, oh, hey, what, hey, yes, no, yeah - We have to cook it! It is raw! I simply LOVE that.

We all know cooking will be a job available to us in various cities, should we yearn to be old-school housewives, so I guess it isn't really a surprise. Yet, it is an enjoyable fact, so there!

So here comes my question. Something I have been pondering over. Since we have to cook our aquired meat now, does that mean that we can make campfires? If so: Excitement!

Facebook, Forum, Fantastic

As you might've noticed, I've been expanding and changing stuff!
I've added a facebook "like" button at each post and I've made a facebook page, that I expect you all to go and "like" - Some people are already joining the coverage page, allowing me to update them quickly, as well as let them ask questions on the wall.

If you haven't been there yet, I suggest you head on over, or puppies will be hurt <--- I kid, of course:
Remember to "like" it.

Furthermore, I've added a Picasa Web Album on the right - Just click the picture and it'll take you to a lush, online album filled with juicy Skyrim pictures.

And last but not least, my biggest feat so far: I've managed to create a forum on this very site! Just click the link in the sidebar on the right! Huzzah!

So it is actually possible to earn money without risking my life?

... Yes it is!

Granted that I haven't really pondered much over this before, I must say that most of these games have a very special way to be totally messed up. What did I do if I wanted big cash in Oblivion? Dungeon raiding! It is probably still the best way to make money, sure, but in Skyrim you will actually have the option to have a normal job! That's right! You don't need to risk your life and good health in order to gain some gold.

Not that I am complaining over the old system, mind you - I find it a decent trade-off for being able to survive without drinking and eating. Still, I welcome this new possibility with open arms and a neat doormat.

As I've previously mentioned, every NPC in the city will have a job. Evidently the citizens of Skyrim don't find it nearly as productive to prance around on the street all day as those in Cyrodiil do. Of course, you can sabotage their jobs completely. Mess up the wood chipper-thingy, or set fire to the crops - It really don't matter. The other nice aspect to see these "jobs" from is not that which sees them as a possibility to create chaos, misery and anarchy (which I know you will,) but the one where you say "Huh... Maybe I could be such a citizen too :/ "  - And you can!

Every job that you see a citizen do, is a job that YOU can do AND get paid for - It's like having sex, whilst having sex. That is, if you're into that kinda thing. Sticky.

So, enjoy the possibility of a normal job where all you risk is losing a finger (I kid of course, you won't lose a finger. More likely a Dragon will show up and scare the living S**t out of you.)

Ask and I shall answer

As some of you might have noticed if you've been on at least once in the past two days, I made a Q&A app on the right. You will now notice that it is gone - boom, just like that.

The reason for it's disappearance is three-fold
One: I didn't work. At all.

Two: Manipulating this site, in spite of my inferior skills, makes me feel like god.

Three: I made a facebook page and people are flocking to it (slight exaggeration,) so therefore I decided to move it there. If there is anything you would like to know, or would like me to research, please ask in the "Skyrim Coverage" page on facebook.

Also, I added a new background, since there were some complaints about the last one - Something about that it were annoying for the eyes and made it difficult to read properly.. If you don't like it, let me know.
