    Much as I love for something like that, it'll likely not happen. The closest mod that does something like this so far is "Interesting NPCs" - I would get it if not because I already have around 25 major mods and I'm tired of fixing and maintaining mods. Skyrim (and probably TES itself) is just not the kind of game where you get emotionally attached to characters. Just the world and freedom to do whatever.

    I tend to stick with Ralof as it allows me to kill that Imperial Captain with the stick up her arse who ordered my characters execution.

    Tullius has amazing voice actor though and he's the lesser of two evils. Ulfric is just a self serving racist. I still always join the Stormcloaks though although I hoped it was possible to just broker a lasting peace as well or assassinate Ulfric/Tullius and make peace. It just wouldn't make any sense joining the legion. They're not the same legion from Oblivion any more so I think it would make more sense to make a new empire with a Dragonborn emperor than to save the old, bureaucratic wreck.

    Besides, they tried to execute me and it wouldn't any sense at all to assassinate the emperor then:P

    Oh hell yeah. But to be fair, Ulfric's voice actor is great too, just not as well utilized. It's a good actor wasted on a crap character.

    If Ulfric had been what he claimed to be the war would have been epic and choosing a side would have been difficult.

    I always went with Hadvar, cuz I liked his voice and honestly, I always got the feeling he felt bad about having to follow Capt. Bitchface's orders to kill me. Shame you can't marry him. He's kind of cute.

    Agreed on both counts. As soon as I head Ulfric I recognized his voice from recently watching 13th Warrior (Buliwyf). And if Ulfric was who he claimed to be, then I'd have a hard time choosing. As it is, I try to stay neutral with all my characters now. I wish there was a way to get Jarl Balgruuf on the throne, since he's the most level headed Jarl in the game (IMO), and seems to care about his people.

    Yea.. he reminds me of Theoden from LOTR:P And Whiterun hold looks like Rohan too. Wish they made an official DLC where you can get Balgruuf to be the high king instead. He's neutral too so I could see him in that position no matter who wins the war. Betraying him and kicking him out of Whiterun was the worst part of the Stormcloaks questline but at least we didn't have to kill him. Then again, imperials put Maven in charge of Riften so that's not much better outcome..

    Think you're playing Skyrim alone? You are being watched.

    Unfortunately, Balgruuf is potentially not all roses either. He has this twisted son who he does not realize is being manipulated by Mephala...I really fear for Whiterun if he inherits the Jarlship (is that the right term?), daedric artifact or no daedric artifact that child seems nasty.

    Well, Bethesda have said that they are focusing on getting Dragonborn to PS3 before any of the other DLC and there are rumors circulating about them wanting to do a simultaneous release of it on PC and PS3, so I realy hope those rumors are wrong. Ah well, looks like they're not getting my money until it goes on sale since in a few days I won't actualy have the time to play it until summer. Yes, I am bitter about it.

    Not even any news. I mean, I understand it was breaktime and all but ITS BACK TO WORK ALREADY.

    Are there any good spell mods for Skyrim? I decided to just start over again and want to try little more magic focused character. I know Midas Magic but the spells it gives are sort of OP and at least judging from an 8 month old Youtube video, kinda lazy too - it was mostly rays and summons (which is basically the same as recoloring armor.. boring) and didn't live up to the Oblivion mod that truly introduced some unique and fun spells (loved the pebble blast:P)

    Anyone hides their helmet? Always think it is odd that I spend an hour making a face that I like, and then have to wear helmet throughout the whole game. I would just not wear helmets for roleplay, but the performance-caring part of me winces at the loss of armor + the matching set perk in light and heavy.

    Couple of mod hides them, but hides every NPC helmet too. Looks equally silly.

    Craftable invisible helmets.

    It's the closest we'll get. Personally, I just use Skyjubs. I don't mind helmetless guards.

    Huh, that probably solves it for me, many thanks! I used Skyjubs for awhile, but hoodless mages.... O.o (have you seen Anise with that mod? omg) All my guards have the same face too, so it's like an army of guard clones.

    Come to think of it, it isn't that much different from them all wearing the exact same helmet...
