Quote from: TESV Timeline
4E ?? Red Mountain erupts; Vvardenfell is destroyed.

I find this to be a subtle "fuck you" to the people who really liked the setting and hoped for perhaps more games set there in the future.

Oh well. At least there is mods.

I'm looking forward to playing Skyrim. I enjoyed Oblvion as well. I was just commenting on that imho pointless addition to the backstory.

What will your first character be? I can't decide between a khajit ranger/thief and going Gandalf.

The only thing that happened in general was the death of 71% of the fort, and that wasn't really worth mentioning.

Dual wielding, and my usual GoodyTwoShoes thief/fighter/mage (in that order). I like being a "jack of all trades" character, if I play only one. Although for this game I just might go for Heavy and Nord. If I ride a railroad I might as well go for it.

I am actually surprised the old Skyrim topic even had fighting.

I admit I havn't been there for a bit but to my knowledge everyone there was so infatuated with Skyrim that even its flaws seemed like cute mole that somehow made the game better.

What happened? Oblivion? Was it Oblivion?

My only gripe is that staves don't actually enhance your magical power, they just give you a spell which you can use if you have the staff equipped. I was more hoping that you could equip both a staff and a spell in one hand, and it would be more devastating than normal. Oh well.

Wasn't following it at all bu it was probably Oblivion vs Morrowind or "Why Oblivion is a shitty game" rants. Anywho, I'll probably get this, but when it's cheaper.

Should of figured Oblivion would shoot its hate beams... which canonically exist in Oblivion.

Yep. Same old same old, and a troll got muted. Move along now :)

There are three reasons why I'm gleefully waiting for Skyrim.

1: Hopefully no loading screen for each damn door.
2: Dragons
3: Spiders

Considering what we've seen in the Quakecon demo, you might be a bit dissapointed.

Yeah, entering each house brings up a loading screen. I'd really prefer a long initial loading than constant interruptions in my game. Like how they do it in SPAZ.
