    Great read Dragon. My First roleplay character was an Argonian Necromancer who lived in Angis Shack near Riverwood. At daytime i would go in town while wearing casual clothes and chop wood or sell potions i made, then when it went dark i would put on a executioners hood and necromancer robes and prey on bandit camps or travelers and experiment on them with soul trap and reanimation spells. that was the most fun i ever had with skyrim after mind numbingly hacking down enemy after enemy just to finish quests.

    This is the kind of thing I love - a character that is dictated and made by roleplay, not a character who relies on a playstyle or gear with some RP tacked on. How long did you keep this character up, and how did you keep it interesting while playing? The main problem with characters like this is that after a while doing the same kind of thing gets old, leading to restartitis.

     I wandered arround other cities and helped the Falkreath jarl and i "became" his court mage. so i could do my experiments on prisoners. i also got the Skull of Curruption to slowly control the jarls mind. kinda like how Saruman manipulated Théoden through Gríma Wormtongue in Lord of the Rings. after that i just stopped, my character got to his goal to become a mage in a high position. i was basically a jarl.

    Sounds like a good point to stop to me, and good catch with the Skull of Corruption, that thing may be naff, but it has liitless RP potential.
