Skyrim Stories

I recently went through quite an amazing encounter in skyrim which inspired me to start this thread. It starts like this, I was walking through dreary old Morthal (where nothing of interest really happens) while on my way to Ustengrav. After resting in the local tavern I headed out one quiet morning to continue my venture. Some of the children were running about playing tag, and the other villagers were either working or shopping. When just then a guard shouted out, "By the Gods, dragon! Everyone inside NOW!" I looked around and noticed the villagers taking heed to the guards orders and rushed into their respective dwellings. Then I turned my eyes towards the sky and saw not one but two ferocious lizards in the heavens. One of them was a baseline dragon and the other was a blood dragon. At level 18 this frightened me as how could I defeat two of the beasts at once?! Luckily, the normal dragon fled either because of his brother or because he knew better. But the blood dragon, lacking the cowardice of his brother decided to swoop down and attack the town! The battle raged for several minutes between the Hold guards, Erik the Slayer and I vs the dragon. [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgDQ8OMUYNg[/url] After sustaining some casualties and Erik was knocked down and the dragon at a little less than half of his health, he decided to cancel his attack and retreat. He flew towards the snowy forest near the border of the town. I tried to chase after the serpent but obviously wings travel faster than legs and I lost track of him in the blizzard that rolled in. I had thought I was victorious, when suddenly... [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mFfIEenip_A]BAM![/url] The drake decided to return to face me one on one! We then duked it out on top of the ridge on the outskirts of Morthal, his voice against my own, his gaping maw against the blade of my dwarven greatsword. The battle was damn near epic proportions! I hacked and slashed as the foul worm sought to char my skin black with his fire breath. He took to the skies one last time and landed in the village near the Jarl's long house. I ran to the edge of the ridge overlooking the town with the dragon just down below, put away my spells of healing, jumped down to face him once again, pulled out my greatsword and made one final charge. The dragon had been defeated and his soul was now mine. I put away the greatsword then continued to ustengrav as the villagers ran out to gaze upon the beast that once terrified them. My friends these types of experiences are what make the elder scrolls games so great, I can't really say any other game has compelled me to write a story about my own struggles within the game. I am very eager to hear some of the tales you guys are willing to share about Skyrim.

  • I almost exclusively play the shittiest mods I can find on lolNexus these days. It's surprisingly entertaining, until something goes horribly wrong and I have to manually wade through my load order to see which one broke it. Aside from that, I've been playing as a Vampire Necromancer with Better Vampires. No direct confrontation with anyone, only relying on thralls and Alteration + Illusion spells

      (Night time) After killing the fake emperor and commander Morro of the pentalus octalus telling me my mistake, I am standing cornered on one of the battlement towers of the city of Solitude. They run towards me to kill me and I stab the nearest one to me and take the only option, risking my life by jumping off of the top of the battlement wall and landing, injured on the grassy slope outside of the city. The front doors to the city open and more guards approach me. I set off and dive into the water. I swim down as far as I can go and swim south along the seabed with my experienced Argonian swimming. I breach to the surface of the glistening water,breathless. Without looking back I start sprinting into the darkness of the marshlands and don't stop running until I get to the cover of trees, and slow down slightly, until I am out of the hold. I check the stars and calculate the time of a few hours as the time it will take me to limp, wounded, across the marshlands and to my manor hall safe in the neighbouring hold of The Pale, also known as 'the old boot'. I can't risk being seen in this current hold for a while now, and I will have to go into hiding in my manor, to heal. Luckily it's stocked with all the supplies of mead and food that I could need, and all the comforts in Tamriel. And, with the thought of comfort in mind, I set off for a grizzly journey across the marshlands. If you bothered to read all that, thank you, although I just wrote it on the spot, despite this all happening to my Argonian over a year ago now. :)

    • I used to be on an Elder Scrolls forum before joining B.net and I used to write stories there. That was a lot of fun, but they weren't ever really that good. Some of them got quite long though.

      • By having mjoll the lioness in your party with other followers some very interesting events occur that are scripted for her. Ex 1: I dropped a falmer bow i accidently picked up, Jenessa (the dark elf from the drunken huntsmen) begins to argue with mjoll in the middle of a falmer cave over who gets the bow, going as far to draw weapons on each other and square off. Ex 2: while rooting around through barrels for salt, she asked a dlc follower (voice acted by ysoloda char.) why i was rummaging around through trash. With the response from ysolda that I might find something useful, you never know.

      • I wake up in the morning and take a jog to the mill. I go to chop the wood, but as I touch the lever, something tells me that danger is near. I hear a roar and peer into the sky. A Dragon. Not an ordinary Dragon, but an Elder Dragon! And to make matters worse, there are two. I know I cannot take on two at once, so I attempt to run into the mill before they can slaughter me. I grab the door and realize my mistake. I didn't have a key. I quickly ran for the woods. But it was to late. There was one behind me on each side. My left side is frozen, and my right is burned. And that, is how I died. But then all of the sudden I appeared in my room with my lovely wife (Alia The Huntress). And I figured it was just a dream.

      • So I was going to Solstheim to do the Dragonborn DLC for the first time. As soon as the loading screen ended and I could move I turned around and looked at Morrowind, saved, quit, and started playing Morrowind instead.

        • I exited the dark brotherhood sanctuary near falkreath. A frost dragon landed in front of me Then a group of thugs appeared of thin air Then a frost troll came running at me from about 20 meters up the path Then a blood dragon swooped down and attacked me Then some falkreath guards started attacking me I'm not ashamed to admit i ran away at first. Then once clear of the mass of enemies i ran back in there swinging my 2 daedric war axes like a mother -blam!-er. Used my Beserk rage to help. They all died. Wish i had a way to film it as it was one of those what the -blam!- moments

        • One time when I was doing the Dark Brotherhood quest to kill the emperor a Legendary Dragon attacked the Katariah. The battle was a massive 3-way between me and Serana, the Penitus Occulatus, and the dragon flying around and spewing fire all over the decks. The battle was like nothing I had seen before. Fighting dragons aboard a ship is epic.

        • I have just bought the DLC's and started playing a new game. After buying the Harthfire DLC I got kids and built a home. Being also a part of the Dawnguard, vampires usually attacked. Occasionally giants try to attack your home too. Also dragons sometimes swoop in and attack the house. On top of all that I had hired thugs on me from "accidentally" killing someone important. For SOME REASON, the game decided that I'm tough enough to handle [b]ALL[/b] of these foes, [b]AT ONCE[/b]! The dragon starts to clear out the thugs and vampires as they try killing my kids. One vampire in particular goes for my daughter and I run in the way of the vampires health drain spell o save my daughter. As I turn I see my son trying to take on the troll with a wooden sword I gifted to him. I couldn't run back In time. I see the giant wind up his club and I know I won't be able to save him this time. Just as I think it's all over for my son, the dragon swoops down ad kills the giant for me. The dragon save my sons life! I look back to after I tell my son to go inside, and don't see any sign of the dragon anymore. I can see the red dot indicting an enemy is slowly fading away. That's the story of the time a dragon save my son.

        • I had recently started a theif character and was about level 25, but I had neglected to level up my combat skills much so I was really weak. I was right outside Riften and my first group of Hired thugs attacked me. I didn't gave any way of beating them so I was just going to run away. I ran past a farm (the guards there didn't help for some reason) and a little past that I ran into some trolls. A plan started forming. I lured the trolls back towards the farm so I could get them to fight the thugs for me, along with the guards (maybe) It was going pretty well... until the dragon swooped down and killed the guards. At that point the thugs were already dead so I just had to try to kill the dragon and trolls by myself. The trolls died first and then I managed to finish off the dragon. Needless to say that was the epicest Sky rim battle I've ever had.

          • I was fighting a frost dragon on a lonely mountain. I was a mage/Archer guy at level 30, but at master difficulty. The dragon was on the ground, breathing frost at me while I was behind a rock. I was going to keep peeking out at him and shoot arrows, but then I heard the music. I realized that I am DRAGONBORN!!! So I Took out Wuuthrad, and charged. I was never so happy to be killing a dragon.
