    Nothing.
    I'm serious. If you've got the PC version, use console and tfc.
    tfc doesn't show the character in first person anyway

    I started a new character because my current one is just too easy. High 20s and I've had no close calls, no worrying moments, nothing of the sort. I'm not too good though, so I can't play on Master without utterly failing and just not enjoying myself.

    So I'm playing on Expert as an Argonian focusing on stealth/speech. I basically run away if my sneak attacks don't work.
    If I can't run, I bounce around while using a sword.


    There aren't enough dark-scaled Argonians, hell, there aren't enough non-random Argonians to begin with.

    My guy is running around topless and doesn't seem to mind.
    I should probably get better armor though.

    You're forgetting the southern regions too, like the Reach.

    Maybe the future DLCs will address the lack of certain races.

    Speaking of southern regions, Bruma was just snow and snow, how the hell did they explain that, while Skyrim also has "warmer" parts?

    I slaughtered the Vigilants, and one of them had a book about a guy capturing werewolves and dissecting them live while they turned.

    Thats actually a fairly good idea. You can see how to change affects their internal parts.

    thinking of making a Geralt styled character, using silver swords to kill monsters and steel swords to kill humanoids. as well as using alchemy frequently. but what skills should I focus on mainly? obviously one handed and alchemy, but what else?

    Well if you want the full Geralt experience, I think you'd have to use two-handed weapons, since his swords are slung across his back and many of his styles in the witcher 1 and in general in the witcher 2 involved two-handed grips. On the other hand, he was also able to shift his sword to one hand to use signs.

    So maybe one-handed, two-handed, alchemy, light armor, block? (with the weapon), destruction, and illusion (since there aren't any signs). Namely lightning cloak, fire spells, charm/the spell that makes people fight for you, and I guess frost rune, since there isn't anything else similar to Yrden in Skyrim. If you have Midas magic, you can use force push, if not use the force and disarm shouts.

    Edited:

    Wow, in the time it took me to type that out someone just linked the witcher site.

    Should probably use shouts to represent his signs, as that will enable you to use twohanded weapons, but Geralt moved his swords very fast, so you could try the mod 'Weapons of the third era' which contains longswords, you'll be good as there are both silver and steel longswords. As for which shouts, you would need, fire breath for igni, unrelenting force for aard, slow time for quen, can't think of any for axii, and the only thing I can think of fr yrden is a rune, which is a spell.

    Speaking of which I was just creating a witcher-esque character when suddenly my game closed.

    guess I'm not anymore...

    well anyway, for those that still have the patience

    mute skyrim and just have this playing while the intro forces itself upon you

    Is it possible to get night eye with a non Khajiit? With an item or potion? Just do illusion anyway.

    I hate when some important plot conversation is happening (but not in an actual conversation, just people talking) then some misc character like a guard comes over and starts speaking shit, making it impossible for me to know what they are saying because they are louder and it shows their subtitles >:(
