Pro tip: if you have mind control of your own you can negate enemy mind control with it. You can also target their mind control with hacking! I highly recommend having either system by the time you reach the flagship.

Shot down a taser drone, but its momentum carried it into me where it, shocker, tased me.

I've been dying a lot. A lot a lot. I've been coping by accepting that this is mandatory for progression, even though it prevents progression. But, I beat the second big boss the first time by getting my ass kicked off the edge of the wall. He promptly followed me down, and even though I was already dead this counted as a victory. This happens a lot, but it's much nicer when they're a boss so they don't respawn and I don't have to try again...

I was killed five times in a row by the same fat dung eating barbarian. Knocked me off the edge, beat me to a pulp either a surprise back swing, hit me through the damn wall... fell off the edge after him when he fell right as I swung.

The first time I did blight town I 1) Went the wrong way, 2) Played on xbox 360, so the whole area was super laggy due to the water physics, 3) Was a mage and followed a guide that told me to wear zero poise armor which meant that literally every attack staggered me which frequently resulted in my death, 4) used a spear that couldn't hit up for some reason *cough* trash *cough*, so the flying bugs had about a 50% chance of being basically immune to my physical attacks.

It was pretty terrible.

The second Sovereign scumbag responsible for my son's death was hanging out by a window, as you do.  I had a concussion hammer and a good angle, easy defenestration~

My pod would have picked both of us up, but loose katanas are kinda dangerous in a decompression scenario.  I kinda sorta tripped on his and (being frail) died instantly.  Bright side, I guess he died slowly.

My decent fighter was invited to the Venom Cult. I gladly accepted, having recently departed my last order on poor terms.
Having fought through another enemy cult's territory, I set my character to train while I take a shit.

Coming back later, I had Returned to Karma.  Apparently, the environmental venom killed me. Or maybe one of my various enemies poisoned me.

(Necro from the before-times)
Honestly, my first time through, I just hid behind the door and snuck around him. Considering the fact that I was carrying ALL of the gold bars at the time, this was a somewhat nerve-wracking experience, especially with trying to out-smart the game (which didn't work too well... If memory serves, I ended up needing to be *less* effective at my sneakery for things to work out). No fight, just gotta try and book it while your pockets are jingle-jangle-jinglin'.

I then saved, and promptly reloaded the treasure vault save so I could cap the old fart in the back of his head.


I think my most memorable experience from Dead Money, though, was when I was dicking around with the melee weapons despite technically being a guns build (eyyy, max INT FO:NV. Totally balanced, man!). Was fighting a ghost person in VATS with my newly-constructed knife spear, and was marveling at how the Mauler special attack seems to be a direct upgrade with absolutely no downsides (some of the melee weapons are like this, others are quite the opposite. BALANCE), so I queued up a couple and went to town on Ghostie.

What happened was absolutely glorious. So, the Mauler attack has a chance to knock down an opponent... Except in this case, "knock down" apparently means "flip that poor bastard directly into the air" and the ghost person got launched. While he was somersaulting in slow motion, the next mauler attack in queue came up, and my character did the 360 blender spin that the attack requires. On his way to completing the attack though, the timing matched up perfectly so that the ghost person was juuust flipping completely upside-down, and the knife spear blade, swinging at chest height, cleanly sliced the ghost's head off.

I've wanted to do a full-on melee build ever since.
Holy shit that rules
Oh, also, Them's Good Eatin' is a waste of a perk in my opinion... You completely buy out traders with salvaged gunk, you're a "half-canninbal" without the game actually acknowledging it, and the only way of turning them into decent healing meds is to use the somewhat limited mutant cave fungus. And the base items don't even fill up your hunger! It's equal parts worthless, overpowered and just plain dumb, which doesn't sit well with me. Many mistakes were made on my first playthrough, heh.
Huh I didn't know the scavenge was even sellable.  Wait-
OHHH, this isn't from the actual cannibal perk, or even from the "upgrade" bonus which lets cannibals dine-and-dash.  Oof.  Yeah I don't like this- my favorite part of the cannibal perk is character-building, and it's occasionally referenced in dialogue (generally not as an advantage, heh).  This looks gross.

Multiple attempts against the Queen Slime. The last attempt I got her down to about 300HP(from 18,000HP), which would have been another two or three Holy Arrows. But she managed to fly into me. For some reason the knockback pulled me into her.

In Morthal picking flowers, some half-naked "challenger" besmirches my wizard skills and challenges me to a duel.  Haha, okay, I'm a Breton-

Of course, that's not what really happened.  Let me start again...
"I reject your challenge" "I don't care"
I dive behind a guard, who politely gets out of the way to watch this "duel".  My hireling brains the nutjob with a greatsword but that just makes him angry.  "This is supposed to be one on one!" he shouts as he blasts my nord meatshield unconscious.  Says who??  But okay, I summon my sword and start power-attacking him against a wall.  "You're supposed to use spells!" he malds as my literal spellsword cuts through him.

what a maroon

The right to not get ganked ends when you use the red eye orb rather than the red soapstone.

Oh wow ninja'd, I'll move this here then:
(Obviously there are plenty of reasons to play a jungle plains dwelling imperial, or a redguard, or I GUESS a nord.  I'm more looking for a game challenge.  Like Heat Signature, or Hotline Miami, or idk whatever)

Come at me, human~

Humans may be fascinating but they're also boring. I think for a setting you have to either go all humans or none or make them unimportant somehow because yeah if they're just the more normal version of elves and dwarves and goblins then they're kinda just there.

I don't even remember the elder scrolls races besides the beastfolk and orcs and the rest are idk different kinds of elves and humans.
