Actually, is one of the best trolling words.

"zomg u look like such a douchebag m8, douchebag, fat nerd tech, lame, go outside ur basement, i own a console and im a fucking stud"

Basically stuff like that.  Just surprising how much there is, given it's a damn cool piece of tech.

Anybody who gives a fuck about looking silly while playing a game doesn't deserve to have that much fun.
I love you.

Having squeeing moments over new Navy uniforms in the house. I think it's more of a tailoring gasm than a promotion gasm. I'm all like, "DUDE, THE FITTING ON THIS IS AWESOME, HAVE YOU SEEN THIS CUT? I'm going to take measurements and see if I can draft off of this coat!"
:) That's cute.

OK, so I have to ask I the only person who was completely underwhelmed by Falskaar?

Yeah yeah yeah, new landmass, dungeons, questline, over 100 new NPCs, thousands of hours of work, blah blah blah.  I wont deny, the guy clearly put a lot of effort into it.

But the storyline is so lacking, even by Skyrim's dire standards.  The geography is clearly designed to add difficulty, rather than realism.  And it's nowhere near lore-friendly.  It's like your Skyrim character was dropped down into an alternate universe somewhere, which I find jarring as fuck.

I much prefer Wyrmstooth.  A few unfinished elements aside (those fucking ingots), you have a fun questline (recruiting the mercs is enjoyable), a fairly sensible if not spectacular plot, and it's much more lore-friendly.
I have not played it, but from what you are saying I won't even bother.
Skyrim is already immersion-deficient, it can't stand to lose more.

House hunting over.

Now I just need to find out if the washer & drier I've had in storage since 2005 still work.

Wait... I missed something.  New house?  No more golf course shenanegins?
I too seem to have missed something.

OK, my monitor probably wont be arriving for another week, give or take.  This is annoying as hell, but it does give me some time to consider what mods I want to include.  Since I'll be doing the video for you guys as much as my own entertainment, I thought I'd get some feedback.

Requiem, Frostfall, Interesting NPCs, Inconsequential NPCs, Immersive Patrols/Weapons/Armor, miniHUD, Requiem Plus, some lighting and texture mods....all of those seem pretty obvious.  But questions?

Realistic Needs and Diseases?  I've watched some videos, and it seems less annoying/time consuming than I initially thought.  But would you guys necessarily welcome the ever-potential possibility of my character starving to death and having to sleep every 18 hours or so?

Hunterborn?  It's mostly compatible, but as skinning takes time, it can interact badly with RnD and Frostfall (ie; you starve and freeze while prepping the carcass).  I could disable the time penalties and rely on it mostly as an alchemy overhaul....thoughts?

Hard Times?  The Azirok patch makes the economy of Skyrim even more brutal.  But since we're going to be playing a thief anyway, it doesn't seem like that is really an issue.  It just means stealing is even more worthwhile than before.

The Dragonborn patch?  Requiem doesn't officially cover the Dragonborn DLC...not yet anyway, and probably not until at least 2.0 (for reference, 1.8 is likely to be released in the next few days).  Also, some people have reported that the patch made by Azirok puts the difficulty level somewhere up in the "insane" region, and adds an entirely new plot to the DLC, revolving around the usage of cursed Daedric armour to defeat Miraak.  At the very least, it's a level 50+ area.

Character wise, I'm looking at specializing in stealth (obviously), somewhat into archery and one-handed, favouring archery more, pickpocket, lockpicking, light armour, alchemy and illusion.  Quest wise, I'll be looking at the Thieves Guild, the Mages Guild (for Illusion and access to their library), the Imperials for the Civil War and the Dawnguard for that DLC, along with random dungeon delving in search of riches.  Also no save-scumming on thievery, aside from actual quest jobs.  So if I get caught, I'll do the time.
Realistic Needs and Diseases sounds good.

Hunterborn is pointless without the time penalties, for me at least it was the time penalties that made it immersive.

Hard times sounds good, for the rest i have no opinion.

I may have said this before but both Sanderson and Miéville are great writers.

Sounds about right.

Well, this is new.  My uni finance department is refusing my payment.  Usually they have no problem taking vast amounts of money off me, whether I'm willing to give it to them or not.
What the hell?
Something very strange is going on, and strange situations make bureaucrats twitchy. You'd better get this sorted before they decide to blame it on you.

I get more depressed every time this thread gets a reply.

We have some big worms here.
The Oregon giant earthworm is one of North America’s largest worm species, reaching up to 1.32 m (4.3 ft.) in length. It is known from 15 sites in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and one site in the Oregon Coast Range. Like Oregon’s other indigenous worms, this species has a narrow range of tolerance for soil conditions, favoring fine textured soils rich in clay (Fender 1995); it is generally associated with deep, little disturbed soils in moist mixed forest of Douglas firs, grand firs, and bigleaf maples (Wells et al. 1983). Habitat loss and the establishment of introduced earthworms are currently identified as the two major threats to this species (Fender 2009, pers. comm). Note, however, that the status and threats of this species cannot be fully assessed until an effective survey protocol is developed and tested (Rosenberg 2009, pers. comm.).
Seriously? that is huge.
The earthworms near Chernobyl weren't that big after several decades of mutating!

I can't help but disagree with parts of the BIP interpretation.
I'm not sure why, but it seems too constricting. there seem to be too many "rules" for me. .

Right, you're out of the club.

Incidentally, there is nothing to be gained by throwing your morals out.  There's a lot to lose, though.
