Lurking since Ning; first post!

    Hello everyone!

    As the title suggests, I've been a huge fan of this community since the Ning days. I remember coming here to look at builds and wonder how so many people had been so creative. I thought I was the only sneaky archer around haha ;)

    Nowadays, I play SSE on the PS4 and make do with the mods available. The special edition graphics are a huge step up from its vanilla predecessor and I'm thoroughly enjoying my first playthrough after years of not playing.

    I've got a Fanfiction in the works as well as I aim to be a novelist in the coming years and Skyrim's rich lore and world make for a great foundation for my writing practice. Not sure how well written stories are received but I hope to get some good feedback in due time.

    If you guys have any questions about anything, please feel free to ask! I'm a real sucker for an online community/family!

    - Abraham

    Hello, I am glad you decided to join us Abraham :) What does your username signify? And don't worry, I think we're all sneaky archers at heart :D So, another aspiring writer joins us - you're in good company as many of our most active members are both writers and extremely helpful in their feedback, plus there are lots resources available in the Story corner to look into. Make yourself at home, mate :)

    Hi Paws! Thank you for the warm welcome! I'm glad that there are so many writers here. It would be hard to grow tired of such an active forum! As for your question, my username means Lightning in Latin (I'm pretty sure at least) and the 9 is just a random number I picked to differentiate myself from the person who already picked fulminata. I will definitely check out the Story corner! Thank you for pointing me in the right direction! I look forward to hanging with you in the future!

    Welcome aboard, Fulmi! Glad to meetcha! I wish I had a console mod or two I could recommend, but I’m afraid I’m too poor for consoles and just use a PC.

    Hi Motty, thanks for the warm welcome! I've yet to post in TSC, but I took a look at it last night and was surprised by the amount of active conversations. I hope to see you around in the future, mate!

    Haha! I can't tell if you're joking, Mercurias! I feel the PC version is vastly superior to the PS4 version; especially with the amount of mods you have at your disposal.

    No, I am not fluent in Latin, but I had a friend who was very fluent in Latin to the point where he spoke it more then he did English, his native tongue, and I looked through his dictionary.

    Hey, Abe, welcome to the site! I was exactly the same when I found the site - turns out my idea to enchant my bow to make my sneak-archer even more powerful wasn't as original as I thought :P Well as the others said its nice to see another writer around here, you guys do awesome work and I'm sure you'll be no different!

    Welcome Abraham, glad to see you out and about under a username now. Coming from another long-time lurker I've gotten myself a bit acquainted with where to go for things, and if you need feedback on your writting feel free to ask!

    Hey Zonnonn! Haha, I know how you feel! I was never very fond of adding enchantments to my weapons outside of Soul Trap, but I did enjoy how you could name and customize them! I haven't played in a while but I plan on smithing a nice Elven sword and naming it 'Falchion'. If only PS4 was allowed better mods, I'd love to make some unique weapons.

    Thank you for the kind words and I hope that in the near future you'll enjoy reading the fanfic I'm currently working on!

    Thank you Flame! I'm fond of this username as I feel it fits me quite well ;)

    I would love for you to look over some of the ideas I had, if you're willing to hear me out. Not sure if you'll see this reply, but I'll send you a message if you're interested/not-busy!
