    I'm very much in the mood to play skyrim as an evil wizard guy right now, but I've not played in months and need to update my mod library - a task suited for a day, not suited for a tired person at 11:30pm :(

    On that note, anything that makes playing an evil wizard guy fun? I don't seem to remember any real quests/questlines/things to do in Skyrim that actually let you be an evil wizard sans zapping a town.

    I am angry because I leveled up to level 100 destruction for the lightning storm spell. It is extremely hard to use because you cant see shit when you use it.

    you mean the kamehameha? i thought it'd be like the frost spell, you know, being an actual storm, but no it's just an overglorified kamehameha.

    It's been done, In Morrowind no less.

    Is it a Daedric hambeast? If so, then probably. Otherwise said hambeast is likely as intimidating as the girls in the pictures up there.

    I just started playing again, and forgot how much I wanted to find the man who thought immobilizing the player so he can be "finished off" by what would have been an easily avoidable attack was a good idea, and throw him into the fires of Mt. Doom and rid the world from his twisted evil forever.

    There are mods that disable NPC killmoves. Unfortunately they disable all NPC killmoves, not just ones against the player.

    It's basically impossible to have a distinct character in Skyrim. Every part of the game is more or less completely devoid of character development opportunities.

    The guilds suffer from this the most. After replaying Morrowind it was great not having a main quest in the Mage's guild. I had to do quests for different people in order to rank up. There was really only one quest that everyone has to do and that's procuring a wizard's staff. Thing I'm getting at is in Skyrim you have to be a badass evil thalmor stopping doomsday preventer in order to become archmage.

    I also liked how when you completed the Balmora mage guild quests you were given an iron dagger worth more gold than any merchant in the game has.

    It didn't take very long to do either, I finished at level 6, and that's while dicking around in other places too.

    My solution to feeling bad is having a nice and caring character on the outside but a sick fuck on the inside. Walking down the road and a lady wants me to help find a thief who stole her gems? Disembowel her, find the thief, kill him, and take the gems for my self. Someone in the guild needs help? Glad to lend a member of my guild a hand. I'll probably even reward them. Course that doesn't work as well in Fallout.

    Fallout 3 is the only game I can be a complete dick in, but even then I feel bad. Especially knowing that Gob dies when I blow up Megaton. :(

    I'd recommend keeping gameplay vanilla,but use Morrowind Overhaul mod. One mod I would recommend is Antare's Big Mod. It gives you authority as you rank up in guilds. You can send members on quests to fetch things, teach them skills, promote them, and so on. I used it and the Overhaul for my last playthrough. As well as my mod which let me create custom spells using any effect.

    Edited:

    There were videos of goblins, spears and etcetera which were never added into skyrim.

    There was also footage of the vampire powers, now featured in dawnguard among the other things they didnt include in the final game.

    My bet is that this is a part of their DLC strategy, along with the CK being unable to make new skills or weapon types and alot of shit just being hardcoded so modders cant touch it.

    For oblivion there was a mod that added some really beautifully textured high-res elven weaponry to the game. Anyone know what it was called and if the maker maybe also made one for skyrim?
