    Yeah, you are at the same point as me, only there was a lengthy conversation about being a helper of riften like mjoll and said she would make me thane if I purchased Honeyside. Are you sure it isn't in your miscellaneous objectives to purchase it from the steward? That's where it is for me.
    I just did not help enough people. I helped the dark elf in the market find out about his past and then ran to the Jarl and up came the option for the house. It is not as big as the place in Solitude or Windhelm, but it definitely fits my needs since it has a garden, alchemy lab, enchanting table, and tanning rack.

    I breezed through the Thieves Guild and Darkbrother hood and missed the Guild Master and Ancient Darkbrother hood armor. Now I am trying to get both this time through.

    I tried to be a good guy, but it is just not as fun.

    FINALLY finished the Thieves Guild quests and became Guild Master. The armor looks bad***.

    I just got my new issue of Gameinformer yesterday and in it there's an interview with one of the QA testers for Skyrim. Bethesda holds a "speed run" challenge after every release between one of the developers and one of the QA staff. The guy from QA won the challenge with a start to finish time of 2 hours and 16 minutes. The developer finished just 20 seconds behind him. When he leveled up, he chose the health/magika/stamina upgrade and that's it, avoided the perk trees altogether to save time. They rushed through it so fast I was immediately reminded of Peck's run through Fallout 3.

    It should also be noted that both of these guys had the text trees committed to memory so they could just button mash through every conversation.

    Also, the same QA tester won the speed run for Fallout 3 with a time of 1 hour and 15 minutes. That doesn't even seem possible.

    Two hours to complete the game? That is crazy.

    Well poor Lydia fell to the Mace of Molag Bal the other night. I was bandit hunting for the Jarl of Whiterun and I felt bad for her while she was just sitting there eating bread in DragonReach.

    So I brought her along and then she got into a bit of trouble. I run over there to help her and the moment I start my swing the bandit falls to a knee and I miss and connect with her face. Poor Lydia went down like a sack a potatoes.

    Thankfully my guy is a bad guy so he just took her stuff and went on with cleaning out the cave.

    Ok, I've opened up 339 locations on the map.

    Does anyone have a clue as to how many there really are? What is really odd is that there are places located in the world that do not show up on the map even when you go into the building.

    I found a Dwarven storage unit north of Cragwallow slope that had a slew of bounty in it and several master locked doors and safe's, yet even after going all through it, it does not show up on the map.

    Same goes for the mines to the east of Karthwasten, neither of them show up.

    I've read different reports about the number of locations. Some have it as low as 350 and others have it as high as 500. However the people who have the 500 number also say that they are privey to the DLC and honestly I am wondering if I haven't stumbled onto a couple of places (the Dwarven Storage Unit for one). I think 500 is really far fetched though.

    Anyway anbody have a real clue as to how many?

    Also how many of you have done the headless horseman quest?

    I saw the headless horseman quest like when I was level 10, but I couldn't keep up with him. It was completely random the first time it happened for me so it was a very cool/creepy experience because I didn't know what it was at first.

    I saw him running over a bridge near Markarth. I just stood there thinking is that what I think it is and I tried to go after him, but when you are on foot and he is on a horse it is hard to keep up. I have not run into him again.

    I've opened a ton of locations, but not sure as the exact number.

    Haven't seen the headless horseman.

    I am use to the whole hit points in role playing games, RPGs, and games like Skyrim, but sometimes it just seems silly.

    Last night I started a Death Knight character and was just exploring near Riverdale and ran into some bandits walking through the woods. I pull out my bow and literally shot one of the bandits in the face. The guy just kept coming even with an arrow through his face.

    This guy was just wearing some basic fur armor so it is not like he had an iron helmet or a steel helmet on to block the arrow.

    There are people on the various Skyrim message boards who claim to have opened 350 locations.

    Some of this would be amazing DLC especially being able to build your own house.

    I did read somewhere that the DLCs will be more like expansion packs. Yay!!!!

    I just want to know when the first one will roll around.

    I've been trying to decide if I want to get back into Skyrim, I never really got into it the way I have the other Elder Scrolls games, I really got tired of a dragon attacking me every time I fast travelled. It's cool at first, but after a while it is kind of annoying.

    I have thought about getting back into it again, but your complaint is the same I have. Having the dragons attack almost every time you fast travel got old real quick.

    No-one has mentioned Dawnguard yet? DLC this summer focusing on vampires and werewolves, sounds cool to me. They are also beta testing horse combat for an upcoming patch, though I heard its kinda crappy.

    This is still the main game I play. Though I only play it about once or twice a week. Its hard to find a decent chunk of time to sit down and play, this definitely isn't a game where you can play for just a 30-60 min session at a time.

    I'm playing it now. I'll be honest it took me awhile to decide that I wanted to do this again and at first the game didn't seem like it had much story and was more just hack & slash (which has it's place but I like a good story better). But now that I've played it for awhile I am back in with both feet. Story is progressing nicely. This actually is one of the better DLC's on a RPG that I've done.
