Started a new Skyrim save!
And I’m really excited about it. He’s a Bosmer archer-mage, one of my old TES standards. His standard personality is perpetually done, tired of civilization, hunter-hermit who’s gone into premature recluse status despite being far too young for it. He prowls around hunting, tending his house, and growling at people who want him to adventure for them. He likes animals more than people.
So, naturally, in Skyrim I’ve made him a Forsworn-sympathizing Hircine-honoring werewolf who smuggles resources across the borders to his adopted cause, summons spriggans and creepy shit with magic, and is generally a badass. And when he joins the Civil War questline, it’ll be going undercover for the chance to serve his cause. I mean… both the sides have issues anyway, and I’d rather be Forsworn because Celtic-themed freedom fighters with antlered armor and creepy magic. Thus, the answer is roleplay. Also I found a mod that lets me be a bard, so I’m gonna be a celt-themed wood elf archer-mage druid bard who assassinates people in the name of freedom/revenge and can turn into a wolf monster who feeds on the flesh of his victims what isn’t cool about that?!??
I’M SO EXCITED.
