Possession is 9/10ths awesome: pick an ES item to own.

    I tend to ask you guys what you would do if you were dropped into the Elder Srolls universe. Today I'm asking the opposite. If you could transport any object or thing from the Elder Scrolls universe and it would be yours to keep IRL, no strings attached... what would you pick and why? It could be anything! Would you pick a unique daedric artifact? Or maybe something more common with an actual use that you just like?

    Would you try to use it on Earth, and if so how? Or would you just keep it for display?

    You can throw down a few choices if you like too. No judgement! Just rank 'em.

    The Heart of Lorkhan with it i can potentially become a god if i can figure out how to recreate the Tools of Kagrenac. If that doesnt work for some reason i would then choose a bottle of Vampire Blood become a vampire and create a awesome vampire clan.

     The Wabbajack, obviously!

     I would then take the first plane to Brasilia.  You guys can take your own conclusions on what I would do there.

    Would I be cheating if I said the Clockwork City?

    My first choice would be a shrine, which could theoretically cure every physical disease we know. Specifically, the Shrine of Dibella for the Speechcraft boost which is a skill that people actually make practical use of fairly regularly.  Now, I don't know if the shrine would work in our world since we are without magic and without the gods of the ES universe.  But if it worked, that would be my choice.  

    The sudden progression in society would be extremely jolting though.  Research to figure out how to replicate it, people trying to steal it, doctors having their entire profession become useless (unless they simply became keepers of the Shrines and treated the diseases that magic could not), overpopulation becoming a much larger problem since people would no longer be dying of disease yet would still be having children...maybe it's best not to have that kind of power.

    Damn dude! This power-hungry answer tops even Edd's answer this time.

    Oh just cause complete and utter chaos, I imagine. Then maybe attempt to overthrow the government and attempt to rule Brazil for yourself? How does that sound? Am I close?

    Combined with my hair it would complete the look, and with that enchantment it would make it easier to mess with people too

    YESSSSS. I know exactly why this answer appeals to me, Lazy. But why is this what you pick?

    Sigh. Ok Rogue. Let me press you a little... which sword? Be specific at least about the type! Otherwise you get like... I dunno. Forsworn twig swords or iron.

    You know the smiths screwed up somewhere when a spiky twig held together with twine does more damage than iron.
