Re: Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Discussion Thread
The game is phenomenal, put Morrowind is still and will probably always be my favorite. Any true RPG gamers out there should play it.
Context: Skyrim there are like 6 guilds to join? (companions, mages college, DB, thieves guild, legion/stormclock, and bards college..Am I forgetting any?) In Morrowind, there is like 20. Even a vampire guild. Turn into a vampire, and find it. There is this book called Tamrielic Lore, which has the best items in the game and it describes them. Me and my brother called it "the List" and set out to attempt to find as many as possible. The book does not have their locations so you just got to be a mad explorer. The game also doesn't have leveled NPCs, which i prefer. You walk into some random cave/dwemer ruin/daedric shrine and they'll be guys significantly tougher than you that you cannot kill. You mark that place down, and come back 20 levels later to exact your revenge. Items aren't leveled either nor are they random. If an NPC is wearing ebony, he'll wear it at level 1 or level 50. Chests are all preset too. It makes getting powerful items WAYYY more valuable. There's is only like 3 pairs of daedric gauntlets, greaves, and boots in the game, which makes having them dope, and only one daedric curiass. And its worn by this bomb old guy, who I could never bring myself to kill. Fighting kinda sucks though. With so many unique weapons as there is no leveling, you save EVERYTHING that is cool and you decorate your house just by laying all your cool shit everywhere to admire it. The story is soooooo deep and frankly your character, the Neveraine, is the most badass of the bunch.
It is quite different from skyrim but all should try it.
