Not that it matters much for my character.  Dunmer = best race.  Plus fire magic and Red Eagle's Bane = curbstomping undead.

I was always a fan of Breton + Magic Defense Enchants = 75% Magic Damage reduction, but that was in the base game.

You can still do that in Requiem, it just takes longer.  Breton + Lord Stone + Saviour's Hide is pretty legit and fairly easy to get early on.  Throw in some Alteration, Alchemy and Enchanting and you're good.

However, Dunmer edge Bretons out because Ancestor's Wrath gives 95% damage reduction from all sources for 60 seconds, their starting stats and carry weight are better, and they can sneak, do alchemy and enchant items without requiring perks.  So in terms of starting off, they are a lot more flexible in filling whichever role you desire (in particular they can make nasty low level nightblades and assassins).

On the plus side, this means the internet will now be full of people eager to prove just how right he was about America.  But yeah  :sad:

Need feedback: is baiting a mammoth into clearing a bandit camp unknightly conduct?

Potentially mitigating factors: I am a Knight of Stendarr, not of Kyne, so smiting evil is my thing.  Nature is not so much my thing.  They also had two crossbows.  Also some sabrecats were already attacking them.  And some mudcrabs.  So in a way nature was already against them.  I also didn't do any permanent harm to the mammoth, though it was a bit pissed at me.

Chivalry experts, plz advise.

Its mostly in character for a Knight of Stendarr, however at this point due to the tricksy nature of the attack I must say you should consider being a Knight of Sheogorath

May you find your worth in the waking world.

Had the weirdest day-dream last night.  Somehow got clearance to enter this spaceship, pretty weird cylindrical lab-like environment.  Warm and friendly-like.  Everything was rounded.  No harsh colors or hard lines.  Airy and light.

Anyway, turns out I'm suddenly French-kissing (being French-kissed) by an alien.  I'm both in the alien lab (dream) and at home (actually) at the same time.  I know that the lab attendants might have been expecting the encounter, and my friends at home may have been slightly surprised.  The weird thing was being torn between gesturing (with my eyes; hands and mouth were occupied) toward recognition of high weirdness to my friends, and then also (more importantly) maintaining a sense of  proper decorum during this protracted, fly-by-night slow-motion encounter of the fourth kind.

It was like some kind of diplomatic handshake that would have been disrespectful to overlook or not perform in it's entirety, which was around pi/4 arc rotations in duration, or something like that.  You know, just in case this starts being a thing.  :lulz:

Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature.

Sadly that ruins my sweet silver weapon and healing spell bonuses for not cavorting with daedra. 

Though it's questionable whether any bonus is as worthwhile as the wabbajack....

Sheogorath is a trip.  I love doing that quest.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

That is exactly what it felt like in the stretch of hate-filled landscape between the Arizona border and the ridge before San Diego. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT PLACE I HAVE FELT HELL AND DRIVEN THROUGH MARS.

But seriously though, I has a writing upcoming about the mountain that never got closer, but the road got longer. I swear this happened.

That's the place where bad mobsters go when they die.

and yes, that's a death valley thing.  The background recycles like a Scooby Doo cartoon, and the dot where the road meets the horizon never ends.

The Jacumba Mountains, those were the fuckers. Steep grades, and a sign to turn your AC off so your car wouldn't overheat. I had no issue with my Subaru until then. I pulled over, gave her a few seconds. Put the windows down and the heat on, wrapped my head and ears really well with my scarf, and the AWD locked her in 50mph across the range. It was like driving through a blast furnace from below sea level to 4000ft, and then the temperature plummeted within minutes from 112 to 89. By the time we got into the city about an hour later, it was 70. It was bizarre in the best way possible.
