So I picked this game up last night and I must say it's pretty fun.  Anyone else playing?

I thought it might be cool to have a thread dedicated to questions and answers.


Right now I'm looking for information about houses available in Skyrim.  I haven't played very far into it, but so far I've only found one house for sale; in Whiterun for 5,000.  Have any of you found other houses and how much do they cost?

Cheers.

I think this is going to be a new favourite thread for me soon.  I bought Skyrim two days ago and cannot wait to get right into it (good bye social life, hello RPG-land).  I played through some of the introduction, and with the exception of a few awesome explosions sounded fairly similar to Oblivion (I'm still waiting to see how the Followers dynamics work).  But I'm a fan and I cannot wait to get into it properly (I've been steering clear of going all in because of a holiday I'll be on next week - I want to enjoy the holiday, not spend it wishing I was back at home playing the game, haha).  

Interesting to see how the game pans out :)

I'm not sure about other houses just yet. Maybe you need to impress the Jarls of the other cities to be able to buy in them? I like Whiterun, but it isn't my favourite place so I'm hoping it isn't the only area you can have a house.

The game is amazing. I haven't played Morrowind, which I hear it's more alike to than Oblivion, but I loved Oblivion and I think I'm going to enjoy this just as much. I'm disappointed you don't have as much freedom in making your character, but it's hardly something to complain about!

What races do you plan to play as? And although the class system isn't as structured or set in stone as Oblivion, what is your playing style going to be? =]

I've been playing it quite abit, its a good change from Battlefield 3 and MW3. I usually play shooters but I also like Fallout/Skyrim style games once I get into them. I like the leveling up screen with the stars in Skyrim, I think thats pretty cool and I actually like not having to pick as much as in Oblivion. It would take me ages before in deciding who/what to go.

I decided to go an Argonian again focusing on sneak and pickpocket skills as well as illusion. I mainly want the assassins blade skill and invisibility, so I can sneak up and backstab. Right now though I sneak around with a mace/dagger and mainly a calm spell. It's pretty cool.

*Oh and I called my character 'Zlip', So I can give them the slip if I get caught trying to sneak around. He is Argonian so has trouble pronouncing the S.  ^_^

It seems like there is a house in each hold for sale. Generally it seems like you need to impress/serve
the Jarl in each instance. Currently I'm using the one in Windhelm. The original cost was 12,000. It's
awesome; almost the whole upstairs is almost nothing but display cases, weapon racks, and mannequins  :P

My character is a Lv 33 Nord, Assassin-type. Whole sneak skill tree is maxed and am wearing the
Ancient Dark Brotherhood Armor. Who here doesn't love that throat-slitting animation?  

I haven't completed the main story (or pretty much any story line other than the Dark Brotherhood).
I just keep getting distracted by hunting deer, catching butterflies, and randomly assassinating
guards to worry about this dragon business. :lol:

I've got a question: is there any way to disable the "favourites" thing? Where you can keybind spells.
I use a Razer Naga and 1-8 are unavailable due to this. :(

Ah, thank you for that!  I knew I should have bought that guide with the game.  I have two of them already, but nice to know I can get more.  Funny, my first was in Whiterun and second was in Solitude.  At least now I know the rest will be cheaper than Solitude!
