Sounds great. Thanks for the tip.

If only I didn't have so many things to get done around the house and I could actually play video games.

I have to wait until after my children are asleep. It's especially tough on workdays because the hours just slip away.

Yeah I am trying to get the house ready for the baby and get some shelves built for storage. I just have no motivation for much of anything once I get home from work.

I think I am going to work my through teh companions quests this weekend. IIUC, I am best to leave Lydia behind so that I can use the quest companions as a follower, get training, and take my money back from them.

Is this correct?

Farkas becomes your companion so you lose everything Lydia has. I would put all the additional supplies in Breezehome, fire Lydia, then start the Companion missions.

On a side note, I'm playing this new character on the hardest possible level. Dragons are a bitch to kill. What's your guys' choice of killing these beasts? Arrows with all the perks seem to do the most damage, but I can only use those when the dragon lands. Melee weapons do a good job too, but then the dragon breathes on me or bites off my head. Magic seems to barely dent the surface and I'm using potions like crazy to replenish magicka.

Dragons were somewhat tough for me too because my character is mostly an Archer. And then I found the Wabbajack and Ice Spike combo.

Speaking of Dragons, the 1.6 patch changes the game for me.

Bringing a dragon to the ground has been updated to a epic level of carnage and brings with it a new set of risks. I was not prepared for this new consequence but it was AWESOME!

played a little too much skyrim yesterday (Not really....)

New character, Wood Elf Thief/Archer/Alchemist, is up to level 12. Trying to play it so there won't be any dragons other than the intro. Halfway through the thieves guild quests so far.

Such a different playstyle for me, but i'm really enjoying it.
