    So anyone got Hearthfire on Steam? I started to build my house but I'm having troubles adopting a child. It told me somewhere that I must build a Child's bed and a Child's chest in order to adopt a child but when I talk to Constance Michelle in the orphanage, she says: Come back when you have a house or something like that. What am I doing wrong?

    It adds a whole lot more but you don't really see the more freaky mobs until high levels. The female giant did give me pause though.

    Just played a little bit again with my Level50 Char, too bad he is totally OP with BS/Enchanting abuse. Finally a Place for all my trophies

    I'm pondering doing a little bit of a showcase of my favorite Skyrim mods for friends / family / interested, but I don't really know if I can be arsed. Nor if anyone would put up with my monotone (albeit sexy, according to live witnesses) voice for more than three minutes straight. Maybe I'll just write some form of review and put it up somewhere. Or maybe I'll just not bother with it at all. :P

    Anyways, I considered buying Hearthfire, but in the end concluded that the mod Build Your Own Home does essentially everything Hearthfire does in terms of house building, and in some ways better (and in others worse, as is the nature of things). So I've opted not to get it. Yet, at least.

    I still have not picked up Hearthfire but I'm sure I will, at some point.

    The mods I'm most keeping an eye out for are Issgard and Armoury of Tamriel 2.0.
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.

    I just think the main quests are short for each guild. But there are a lot of radiant quests that follow after the main quest chain has finished. I found the companions and the thieves to be really short as well. But there were more quests that the other leaders handed out after the main quest chain was completed.

    Another thing that after you reach the level 40 mark your abilities just start getting a bit over powered especially if you have put points in the crafting trees.

    Now I've done both Thieves Guild and Companions, and I really can't see myself trying to re-learn all the skills and locations again on a new character. I'm far from done though. Still deciding between checking out the college of Winterhold or joining a Civil War faction, which I have a feeling I will immensely enjoy.
    That is the thing though. You don't really have to do everything on one character. I would find it really weird if a warrior/ranger/archer was doing quests for the college of winterhold or a stormcloak questing in solitude. I think they are two or more ways of playing the game which keeps you coming back for more.

    I plan on at least having 3 different characters: Archer/Ranger, Warrior/sword-board/2-H, Mage/Congurer if time allows me. I am only on my first - Archer/Ranger and am enjoying it so far. I find it a bit unrealistic killing dragons but its still fun. I don't plan on experiencing everything on her yet. I have just finished the "main quest" chain for the companions. I have the Dark Brotherhood in the waiting and then I'll probably get started on the thieves guild and then moving onto the civil war and the main quest line. So I still have quite a bit to do and I have not even touched the surface.

    I recently feel like mmorpgs are something I don't have time to play anymore because of growing up and more important things in life coming first (work, relationship, friends, family). I love the style of mmorpgs but hate the feeling of always having to keep up with the Joneses and putting in constant hours to get anywhere. Does Skyrim sounds like something that fits my time and criteria?

    You know, I keep popping open Skyrim and trying to play it...and for some reason it just bores me. I'm not entirely sure why, it's got almost everything I love in an RPG, I really enjoyed Morrowind and Oblivion(with a heaping helping of mods) before it....but Skyrim just isn't sticking for me, and I'm really not sure why.

    It might, because Skyrim is not a MMO, it's simply a single-player RPG. So you dictate your growth and don't have to worry about anyone.

    I restarted as a Conjurer/Illusionist. Conjurist is really easy to level up. It has the added bonus of leveling up weapon skills (I prefer bow/archery). Illusionist is taking a while due to magicka management. But with becoming head of the college and getting those sweet rewards, magicka should no longer be an issue.

    Also, call me cheap but Barbas is too awesome a companion to release. >.>
    I'm still thinking about it...

    As this thread has been silent for the last two days, I though this might wake it up a bit:



    A teaser image for the next DLC, the reveal trailer will be released this Monday, according to GameInformer:

    I have to say I love this game, but god dammit who the hell thought it was a good idea to make it mandatory to use a fugly helmet in order to function 100%. Is a hide helmet option that difficult for them to brainstorm on in a meeting?? Really disheartened now that I wasted so much time on one char.

    If you're using the PC version, get a hide-helmet mod. There's several varieties out there.

    That teaser looks distinctly Falmer-ish to me.
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.

    Just uninstall it, then reinstall it through the Steam library. The game isn't removed from the library just because you uninstalled it.
    I'm a European federalist. Now you know.
