Once I killed the killer of the innocent woman before he killed her.
User avatar #259 to #4 - commontroll ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
I also try to save the gatekeeper who's executed in Solitude. But it's a lot harder.
User avatar #146 to #4 - carthos (09/29/2013) [-]
Once did an assasin playtrough. Never went to Solitude until had maximun sneak and archery.
So when I got there they where going to execute that dude, quicly shot the executioneer and all the gaurd, everybody's still talking about his death and he's just walking around town
#186 to #146 - Rascal (09/29/2013) [-]
That shouldn't happen. His death is scripted, even if you killed all the guards and the executioner before they kill him, his head should roll off by itself.
#198 to #4 - Rascal (09/29/2013) [-]
She's an imperial spy by the way.
User avatar #228 to #4 - thedarkestrogue (09/29/2013) [-]
I once did that, but the woman just kind of fell over and died anyway.
#33 to #4 - harleycurnow (09/29/2013) [-]
First time i went to markarth i noticed he was red and i thought he was a theif or some **** so i killed him before he was even close to the woman. I was really confused when the guards started talking about it...
User avatar #9 to #4 - psykobear (09/29/2013) [-]
I did that on my first playthrough and now do it every single time. If she dies, I reload the autosave.
#155 to #9 - granodd (09/29/2013) [-]
That's deep y'know? It's like time travel; you see something bad happen, and you have the option to press a button and revert time back to a point before something happened, so you have a second chance of ensuring it doesn't happen.

I mean, but it's only a game.
User avatar #5 to #4 - mchurtstab ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
ive done that as well, everyone is just like "did you see that? he tried to kill that woman!" and she just wont talk to you out of shock
#7 to #5 - Rascal (09/29/2013) [-]
They updated it, she now gives thanks and a levelled amulet reward.

There was this one moment in Skyrim that I just love. I believe it was in the theives guild quest line and you need to go through a cave to get to the meadery or something.   
   
So there I am walking through the cave (daedric bow, 100 archery, wood elf, sneaking like a pussy) and I was just taking down creatures left and right and really noticed there was a 			****		 ton of skeevers. Like a proverbial 			********		. However after just slapping them with a one hit kill with daedric daggers and there was just a mass of dead skeevers littering the ground this dude just rushes up to me and tries to shank my ass, but in turn it was he who was shanked.   
   
So I keep rummaging around the cave and I come across the journal of the crazed wild shanker. It was a story of betrayal and revenge, how he had stowed away in this cave for 10 years training the skeevers to be his minions, his plan was almost complete and he was about to exact his revenge any week now.   
And all of that, 10 years of brooding, planning, and waiting, all ruined because some 			******		 waltz's into a cave and mercilessly slaughters everything in site.   
I honestly felt bad afterwards.

#43 to #14 - Rascal (09/29/2013) [-]
maybe he wasn't a good guy lol I mean what kind of sane person hides in a cave for 10 years and trains skeevers to be minions. Did the book say why he did what he did?
#72 to #14 - thegazz (09/29/2013) [-]
The journal states that the people of Whiterun will "Get what they deserve", and not in a good way.

So maybe you're better off killing him.
User avatar #139 to #14 - slimtotheshady (09/29/2013) [-]
So, is the .gif revlevant?
User avatar #178 to #139 - killerliquid ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
You can roll if you sneak, if you have the skill that is.
User avatar #179 to #14 - robotvoice (09/29/2013) [-]
he was an insane wizard training skeevers to attack whiterun.
he mage raped me ass on my first play through.

I named my guy Magnus Kadall, and when the Eye of Magnus quest popped up, I jizzed my pants.

My first character was named Wulfgar, when Arngeir said Master Wulfgar was going to demonstrate something, I thought: "Wow that's impressive game design, knowing the players name and **** " then I saw the Greybeard named Wulfgar and felt sad.
#202 - thornberry (09/29/2013) [-]
Does anyone remember Ulfr the Blind? And when you opened his journal all there is are blank pages? I actually felt bad when I laughed at it.

This whole post I was like
no ****
no ****
NO **** SHERL- oh that's cool
NO ****
User avatar #38 to #37 - egosumproxi ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
Yeah. The one about the falmer I didn't know because I never found that place, and the last one I didn't know because I don't read that much into the lore. The rest I knew. And I wouldn't call the first one or the Markarth one "hidden" details...
User avatar #131 - ilovehitler (09/29/2013) [-]
Another thing that belongs in OP's post.

The thieve's guild is called what it is because you steal from people.
#169 to #131 - Rascal (09/29/2013) [-]
DId you know the game's called skyrim because that's the country
User avatar #275 to #169 - vortexrain (10/01/2013) [-]
It's a province you retard.

innocent woman being stabed.. Ha, saved that bitch with my ultimate archery skillz

Mah Redguard
User avatar #45 to #27 - Mahazama (09/29/2013) [-]
Actually orcs are the most comparable to black people. Most are voiced by Afro-american voice actors for starters.
Redguards are clearly more meant to be arabic.
User avatar #77 to #45 - alltimetens (09/29/2013) [-]
I have to agree with this guy. I'm Arabian, and Redguard culture (living in deserts, having curved swords, specifically scimitars, and wearing turbans/head wraps). Orcs are always arrogant and lack in reading skills and comprehension, which is kind of what the stereotypical black guy is seen as.
#215 to #77 - memolia (09/29/2013) [-]
You mean them sexy ass curved swords?

Xenos!
#114 to #45 - comradewinter ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
They are also more savage and tend to be in ghetto strongholds.
User avatar #83 to #45 - lordlolland (09/29/2013) [-]
How about we meet in the middle and agree that Redguards are depicting culturally Arabized Africans?
User avatar #159 to #83 - nervaaurelius (09/29/2013) [-]
So they're moors?
#64 to #45 - smellmyfaceforswag ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
No wonder I'd rather play as a Orc than a Redguard. thankyou for explaining this.
User avatar #260 to #45 - commontroll ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
I'd say they're more of Islamic Africans. Of course that includes Egyptians as well as a few other nationalities that resemble Arabians. But it also includes places like Somalia.

Who the **** didn't piece together that first one?
User avatar #129 to #69 - infedel ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
to be honest, i never knew that because i only have one character i play as. i dont make character after character like everyone else does.
#207 to #69 - tastycrisps (09/29/2013) [-]
I never caught that one
#225 to #69 - trollolololgabe (09/29/2013) [-]
me. I never really thought that much about it. I thought they didn't want him to inspire the Imperial Nords around to free him or become a martyr with his last words. didnt have to be so hurtful with your comment though...

Sorry if it seemed hurtful. Was just joking buddy.
Here, hope the gif makes you laugh as much as it does for me.
User avatar #230 to #229 - trollolololgabe (09/29/2013) [-]
naaaah I'm joking dude I've seen a lot more "hurtful" things on the interwebz.
User avatar #278 to #229 - vortexrain (10/01/2013) [-]
I ******* love this.
User avatar #99 to #69 - thebrownydestroyer **User deleted account** (09/29/2013) [-]
That would be me jesus im a *******
#94 to #69 - batmane (09/29/2013) [-]
Well I thought that was some werid fetish emperials have.. Like they say, no lollygagging..
User avatar #279 to #94 - vortexrain (10/01/2013) [-]
I like lolly loli gagging.
#149 - zorach (09/29/2013) [-]
Wasn't the first one super obvious?

User avatar #183 to #149 - dapape (09/29/2013) [-]
None of the other prisoners were gagged, so I would hope so.
User avatar #188 to #149 - Dwarf (09/29/2013) [-]
Not really. I thought only the main character could shout.
User avatar #210 to #188 - thinegame (09/29/2013) [-]
Almost all of the ancient nords shout, so why can't other players?
User avatar #200 to #188 - zorach (09/29/2013) [-]
Several characters throughout the game (including ulfric himself) have stated that he started training with shouting when he was 10
User avatar #253 to #200 - linktheherooftime (09/29/2013) [-]
My favorite character with the ability to shout was the Ebony Warrior.
#201 to #200 - Dwarf (09/29/2013) [-]
**Dwarf rolled a random image posted in comment #6 at BB ** I don't play for the plot.
User avatar #175 to #149 - feelythefeel (09/29/2013) [-]
Only if you think about it specifically in hindsight.

Please make moar. I desperately need new Skyrim facts, even if I already know a few of them.

User avatar #3 - edraham (09/29/2013) [-]
Seriously. When you play skyrim, 90% of these facts are ******* obvious...
User avatar #46 to #3 - mrbubblesx (09/29/2013) [-]
not to 333 people they aren't

I thought the first one was obvious as **** .
User avatar #48 to #40 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
I never realized it, actually. Now, it seems obvious.

Same.

Comment Picture
#44 - trollmobile (09/29/2013) [-]
implying i didn't shank the first ****** i saw when entering Markarth, very intentionally saving that woman.
User avatar #47 to #44 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
I think I've tried this before via console commands. He can't die beforehand, I don't think. But it was a long while ago, I could be wrong.
User avatar #57 to #47 - lostminder (09/29/2013) [-]
yeah you are wrong. he can die a normal death. i don't use any mods and i kill him every game.
User avatar #59 to #57 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
As I said, it was a while ago, didn't remember too well, and console can be screwy on occasion. Thank you for correcting me.
User avatar #61 to #59 - trollmobile (09/29/2013) [-]
yeah, you wanna kill a person and end up trying to use kill-command on a wooden pole.
User avatar #68 to #61 - fuzzyballs (09/29/2013) [-]
it happens when it's snowing or stuff, you keep clicking the weather instead of the enemy
User avatar #62 to #61 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
Normally I'm pretty accurate with the clicks though.

Except the one time I was trying to kill Elenwen's horse at the beginning of teh game and accidently killed horsethief.
User avatar #55 to #47 - thewasteland ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
You can kill him on console,
she is really an imperial spy
User avatar #56 to #55 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
I think I kinda remember that.
User avatar #51 to #47 - demonicchimera (09/29/2013) [-]
I killed him before he could kill her, and it was on the PS3 version.
User avatar #53 to #51 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
As I said, I could be wrong.
User avatar #49 to #47 - trollmobile (09/29/2013) [-]
eh... i think i had the "all killable" mod installed at the time

i do now at least.
User avatar #50 to #49 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
Ah. That makes more sense.


I remember I have used the console to make Elenwen killable before. Then I used Lilith's weapons (adds some badass as hell scythes and crap) to brutally murder her.

Twas good fun.
User avatar #52 to #50 - trollmobile (09/29/2013) [-]
the "all killable" mod is **** actually

it doesn't apply to any characters from any DLC
it's updated to work with the DLCs, but doesn't make the DLC characters killable.
User avatar #54 to #52 - mitchr (09/29/2013) [-]
Huh. Well, good thing I'm off my Skyrim kick.

Seriously, when I was on the Skyrim kick, I'd get on the Nexus and come out with 20+ gigs of mods. It was horrible.

User avatar #193 to #181 - psyachu (09/29/2013) [-]
I don't see why you got thumbed down so bad. I thought it was kinda funny, honestly.

Assuming you actually got the real reason they gagged him...
User avatar #194 to #193 - cubanwhiteman ONLINE (09/29/2013) [-]
Everyone knows why. I'm just pretending to be an ignorant asshole because it's funny.
Some peopel don't get it I guess, whatever, down with my post and all that.
User avatar #199 to #194 - shadowbreech (09/29/2013) [-]
Oh, I didn't realize you were making fun of those people so I just ignored it at first.
I'll thumb you up
User avatar #1 - tylosaurus ONLINE (09/28/2013) [-]
The first one is a bit too obvious.
User avatar #65 - dubslao (09/29/2013) [-]
I thought the fact that Ulfric would have shouted his way out of the execution was a plain and obvious fact that everyone who listened to the dialogue in the first three minutes could figure out
