    Yeah well they are only actually naked if you have a nude mod of course. Yeah this dude hanging out with those two girls was the first person I met in Skyrim I really wanted to be. ;)

    Yeah that shit is hilarious. Especially when they eventually fall and die on impact.

    Does this game have a memory leak? I noticed after a few hours of play my performance starts to go to hell. I go from 60 FPS down to 25 FPS. Indoor or out.

    Bah ... Bethesda can fix their own quests.

    I have to do this massive work around to get the final quest for the companions to start. I have to sneak throujgh the driftshade refuge without killing anyone(gonna put some light armor on haha) get the helm of winterhold and take it to the jarl of winterhold to complete the quest. Then go back to the companions do the bloods honor quest and then it should start, and allow me to do the final quest.

    I never encountered those glitches. And I had a lot of glitches when on my first character..

    What's happening to you?

    Edit:
    Just do the 'massive work' lol why do you need a fix for the quest? :p

    On my second character, lvl 35 so far and not one glitch.
    Blood on the Ice is troubling me though. I visited Windhelm numerous times, and still that quest hasn't triggered.
    Ironically it worked perfectly for my first character, when 99% of Skyrim players and their grandmas were having issues with that quest.. :rolleyes:

    I haven't had any problems with any quests so far. Maybe I have a magical Skyrim installation !!

    well that was easy enough. Got the Helm of Winterhold so now the issue with the final companion quest should be gone

    I had to run thhough the refuge without killing anyone. Beast Mode

    I don't think anyone will like my quest. I'm making it in the spirit of Morrowind style quests.

    Vague clues (find an old man who was last seen north of here who has something of mine).
    No name of who you will need to find.
    No map markers.
    No journal entries.
    A long, mutli-stage quest with multiple objectives that makes you travel (although with a natural area progession, not like the vanilla quests which send you half a world away on a FedEx quest).
    You're going to have to remember what you are doing (or write it down IRL) or the NPC "Old Uncle Kreij" is just going to look at you like an idiot if you go back without knowing what you are doing.
    A quest that when you start you (hopefully) get the feeling that this one might really be worthwhile.

    A REAL ADVENTURERS QUEST !!! :roll:

    Sounds good. There aren't any vague quests in skyrim, they all have map markers that tell you exactly where to go, like 'through this door' 'kill this guy with the giant arrow over his head'

    Sometimes the quests in Morrowind were frustrating, but after playing for many hours you realized that the vague ones, that did not hold your hand, were the most interesting and entertaining.

    Instead of talking to OUK I shot him with an arrow. He killed me with one blow, so he's set up pretty good. :D

    I had a witch who was stuck in a doorway somehow even though the door was always open, I could pick her up and everything but she would never change position just raise vertically. Lift then drop as I used a ax on her and sprayed the walls.


    My two handed has increased dramatically as has my magic skills and understanding. Its unfortunate your followers don't seem to be able to really utilize potions, they should be able to....hint...cough...hint

    I have heard of this problem. I personally dont have it. but IIRC i remember it being a loaded cell problem. like it would load the area of a dungeon but after leaving left it commited to memory. i will look for a fix. i know it was in oblivion maybe it passed to skyrim?

    OUK being Old Uncle Kriej? So you already have a crazy old man with too much power?

    If your mod doesn't involve him holding a funny contest, I'm gonna pimp-slap you.

    I'm really looking forward to this mod!

    And Kreij, please do make him look like you as much as possible. It adds to the value of the mod - there's nothing like having the real old badass uncle Kreij in the game! :)

    It's kind of hard to have a contest in a single player game, but I'm up for ideas. :D

    That would scare women and young children. :ohwell: :laugh:
    I'll do my best for you BP !!
    Did I mention I have plans of putting all the mods in the quest? (snicker)
    I was thinking of making "Mussels" a talking Horker.
