With Skyrim being released within slightly more than 24 hours now, these are inevitable questions. Especially considering that character creation is one of the most important steps in the game since it's not like you could afford to lose hours of gameplay just to choose another character type... - How do you plan to game once you install the game? - What type of character are you going to create? - And if you even thought about it, which race and attributes are you going to choose? My plans won't seem exciting just typed into this post: I'm going to behave exactly like I would in real life, were I to be dropped into surroundings which I don't know, and seeing people whom I don't know. I'm going to start the game as an extremely cautious being, trying to hide as much as I can while exploring as much as possible. I'll be keeping a low profile, perhaps doing side-quests if someone asks me to do simple jobs like collecting stuff for a reward. I might rob, or even kill to rob, always undercover, if I'm sure someone's a bad guy or could afford being robbed (or killed?) Obviously I'll be protecting myself to death if I get attacked, for whatever reason. As regards race, I can't decide yet. The most obvious for sneaking and thieving seems to be the Khajiit. I've never played TES:IV Oblivion as a Khajiit because I don't like being a non-human somehow. But I think I might be doing it now. As for attributes, up to this moment my choices are: pickpocket sneak lockpicking onehanded light armor conjuration But I need to study them more. I'm still unsure about the "onehanded" and "conjuration" attributes... I want to start playing this game as a low-profile always-hidden sneaky character who discovers everything while allowing the least amount of NPC's possible discover her. What about you? What are your plans?
