Well seeing as I know bOnEs is meant to be getting this soon, and a few of you already have it, lets talk about it here. I searched old Oblivion topics but none seemed worthy of reviving.

Most of you should know of UESP, I don't think I could live without it.

C'mon people, reload those old saves, start new ones... let's go to Oblivion. mellow.gif
TwoFacedTanner
I love the Elder Scrolls series.
I've played them all...with the exception of Daggerfall.

Morrowind has to be my favorite though.

You should check out the Imperial Library read the stuff there, will give you an insight on how incredibly deep and detailed the Elder Scolls universe is.

Its almost like reading the history of an actual world.
Bethesda does an amazing job making their RPGs.
asthenia
I'm embarking on reading the history at the moment.
I'm going to play the other TES's, but my PC is currently FUBAR so I can't yet. I've got Oblivion on my PS3. Need to get Shivering Isles f'sho though.

i'm getting the "game of the year" edition, which includes all of the expansion... and HELL YEA!! i'll be posting some questions here for sure since, this game looks bigger than fallout 3... and i'll check out some of those sites too since i didn't buy the guide...

i get it monday in the mail so, probably that evening i'll be playing it finally...

I bought this for 16 bucks a couple weeks ago, hehe. Unfortunately I haven't done much. I'm gonna get back to it right now. As I posted in the Fallout topic, I'm disappointed in the lack of gore and you know, chopping shit off of people. But hey, this game came out 2 or 3 years ago. It's still amazing and great to look at. I'm sure it gets much better as I keep playing, cause I lost interest.
bOnEs
i paid $28 for a new copy... did you get the game of the year edition, analog?

I'm 130 hrs in and I'm pretty far in the Guilds, except Fighters, I've done the odd job here and there, but the main quest I've not even properly gotten into yet. It's the exploring that really excites me. The life outside of quests, there wasn't much life outside of questing in Fallout. You'll love it dude. I haven't even got GOTY yet, I'm just playing plain ol' Oblivion (w/KotN ofc). Can't wait to see what kinda shit you come up with bOnEs, you were pretty much the life of the fallout topic.

If you lose interest, that happened to me, I got 45 hours in and was like fuck this I hate Oblivion, then restarted recently and I won't even let other games look at my PS3, let alone will I touch them. It's immense.

-edit- By pretty far I mean finished in all except Fighters. Didn't realise.

Nope. I wouldn't have ever thought of buying the game if it hadn't been such a steal. I saw Besethda Softworks on the cover and I'm like O SHIZA!!! Maybe if I find the expansion pack for as cheap, and actually play the game, I'll get it..

I haven't even given the game a chance. I've just gone into the main city place and talked to some chick about a thief merchant guy. I have SO many other games I haven't beaten and the trophies on them are making them more worthwhile to play..
TwoFacedTanner
Bones a tip to you.
Beat the Knights of the Nine before the original main quest.

It makes the final battle in the main story more epic when you have knights with you.
Kuwong
This game is fantastic. Those who say its shit for not having gore, I'd hate to see your life.
Indy
One of my all time favourite games. I think i've clocked about 120 hours into it. First play through I was a Redgaurd, then I chose to be a Breton second time around. I love the beginning of RPG games, being a tramp and stealing rusty iron swords loll. Good times. Also, get the skeleton key as soon as possible, I think you have to be minimum level 10 or 15.
bOnEs
ok, i want to be a humanoid silent assassin... what should my character choices be in the prison?

i was reading how in-depth the character creation is and how it's very important to get it right early on or you might regret your decisions later on... is a silent assassin really the best choice for a beginner to take (will i have trouble later in the game or not)? or should i go for the "barbarian" route and just hack and slash my way through the game? what's the best option for a guy just starting out?

i am sure i'll pry have to play the game again eventually, and will probably have a better understanding of the character creation the second time but, i wanna hit the ground running and never look back with my first file... no regrets...

if you need any additional information from me of how i might want to play this game to better understand which character i should choose, ask now or forever hold your peace... the game is sitting on my doorstep as we speak, and tonight i'm jumping in!! biggrin.gif no regrets (until i reach level 15 and notice that i can't kill enemies anymore, lol)...

EDIT: another question... does it make a difference where i hail from?

Well, during the beginning prison escape, I'd say sneak everywhere and use your bow(or sword) if you want to be all sneaky.
Light armor too. So pick up the leather when you get it.

Sneaking is fun, so def go with that. Barbarianism is overrated and for newbies.

As far as where you come from, each race has racial powers and racial skill boosts.
Imperials are diplomats. (my race of choice) You get boosts in Mechantile, Speechcraft, Longsword and something else.
Nords are pretty much frost resistant Barbarians.
Orcs are Hill people with, if I remember correctly a berserk rage.
Bretons are the result of generations of mix breeding Nords and Altmer(high elves) so they can be combat or magical.
Altmer are pretty much Wizards, who are weak to just about all magic.
Bosmer(woodelf) are good for like sneaking and stuff, you may look into them.
Dunmer(Dark Elf) They use negative magics like destruction and conjuration. They're also good with bows and swords.
Redguards are similar to the Nords, but instead of strictly combat, they get boosts in Athletics and stuff. And the highest boost in swords of anyone.

The two beast races.

I don't really know what the Argonians are all about, never have.
But the Khajit, they're pretty much like the Bosmer, except they don't get a boost in bows.
asthenia
Also, remember there's magic, and it might not be very appealing right now, but being Arch-Mage and not being able to cast standard spells is a bit... dumb?

Also, overall hours is now sitting at 190 for me now. 45 on one, 145 on other save.
bOnEs
ok, got it figured out i think...

race: bosmer (wood elf)
class: stealth (assassin)
birthsign: thief

i like the idea of bosmer's being able to summon simple-minded land creatures to fight along side of them, and their supposedly great archery skills... but other than that, they seem to have this misunderstanding about themselves throughout the world... their practices don't seem to sit well with others, and they don't really have enemies nor allies... sounds like an ideal situation for an assassin...

i will try to learn at least some magic spells if i can... i do want to cast spells sometimes, rather than wasting arrows...
PabloHoneyOle
I love me some Fallout 3, but I just don't know if I could get into TES.

I have a few friends who swear by it, but it never seemed like my cup of tea. Maybe I'll rent it first, check it out.
asthenia
Sounds good bones, there's some real nice arrows out there if you're looking to get into that, and enchanting them yourself (if you get access to The Arcane University.), defo give it a rent Stoic, it's prettay awesome. I thought I'd have a hard time going back to Oblivion from Fallout but I haven't touched Fallout since getting the ol' blade out.
PabloHoneyOle
I definitely got a few games lined up ahead of it, but I will probably end up picking this up eventually.
bOnEs
ok, just stopped in to check out some quests in imperial city on that wiki site...

i'm checking because, WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING?! i'm overwhelmed at the size of this game!! same feeling i got when i starting playing fallout 3... i must of walked into 12 shops already in imperial city... completely lost, walking in circles, lol biggrin.gif...

i picked the wood elves as my character and, are they suppose to be shorter than everyone else? laugh.gif...

i saw this wanted poster of a thief and i think i might go check that out... heard some rumors in town about him, getting kinda interested in checking into that... but first, i need to figure out what the hell my plans are from here... i'll pry walk around this city for a while, checking out as much as i can... who knows, maybe i'll stumble into something interesting like when this tall ass orc guy stood up in the bar and said he knew me... lol, i don't know anyone laugh.gif...

it's interesting thus far... i can tell it's building up steam as i journey deeper in... once i get used to the way things work like the menus, battle, magic, leveling, and overall feel, i might start to enjoy it even more... i've only just begun the journey biggrin.gif...
asthenia
Hehe. Wood elves.
bOnEs
so, does it usually take a while to level up? i played for about 4-5 hours last night, and i don't even think i am 25% to my first level up... i did the first main quest of delivering the amulet to that jeffrey dude... but, i also have about 8 other quests that i have discovered... might try a few of those tonight...

i don't really want to explore any caves or forests because, my little elf can't carry much weight, therefor, i can't loot a bunch of items to make money... is there a safe place to store items until i get my own house? because, i am carrying extra weight with some of these items i don't really want to sell but, i need the extra weight removed temporarily for exploring purposes...

also, i see there are certain rules to certain guilds like the thieves... one of their rules is i cannot kill any human/elf/orc/cat/etc without upsetting the guild... so, how do i approach my everyday well being if i can't kill any enemies? or does this only apply to the friendly NPC's? and if one of the other guilds tells me to kill someone, won't that upset the thieves? this whole "guild" thing is starting to confuse me laugh.gif... too many rules to follow that seem to contradict another guilds rules...

i am thinking of trying out my skills in the arena too... looks like some good fun biggrin.gif...
TwoFacedTanner
Its only friendlies that upset them haha.

And to level up you need to increase your major skills up 10 points.
Unlike fallout where killing is all that got you xp, you actually have to train in skills on this game haha.

all of my major skills? i think i have like 6 or 8 or something of major skills... how do you know they've hit 10 points, is it when the bar is red? wow, that might take some time to get all of those skills up... i might be at level 1 for a while, which is a good thing i seem to keep reading about with the whole complex leveling system laugh.gif...
TwoFacedTanner
Haha each major skill has a red bar beside it, and when that levels up, that give 1 point to the 10 you need to level up.

Its pretty easy once you get the hang of it!

Oh, and if you have a decent enough PC(runs games from like 2001) I'd pick up the one that came before Oblivion.
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.

Its slower, last gen, but I have, at last 250 hours put toward that game.
I have many memories from that one.
But definitely, for backstory on TES universe go to the Imperial Library website.

i did do all of that... but, after some exploring and tinkering with items, i am starting to get a better understanding of the game... i'm more of a hands-on kind of guy... i need to try things out before i get a good idea... reading doesn't always help biggrin.gif...

i did some more exploring yesterday... used some religious guys horse that he let me borrow, and did a circle around the imperial city island, discovering some new locations... also went to brhuma (sp?) because, i finally got into the thieves guild... now i have like 12-14 quests laugh.gif...

also did some fighting in the arena... now that's really fun!! also exploited the arena betting where i would load a previous save if my guy didn't win the match... i only did that long enough to earn enough money to buy the imperial city shack to store items in (2000g, and because the game should of at least given you a free hotel room or small shack to start out with... coming up with 2000g in the infant stages of the game is impossible)... the problem with that though is, the house came with no storage bins!! so, after some quick research online as to where i could buy these items, i discovered that i could steal one of the storage upgrades from some guys house in the elven district so, i did that... now i can finally do some exploring/scavaging/looting without getting over-encumbered so fast...

question: can i store the notes that indicate house upgrades in my house? or do i have to carry them at all times? they have a weight to them so, if i can unload them in a chest, i'd love to do so... plus, if i were to ever get arrested, i think the guards would take that note too since, it's labeled as a stolen item, which means i would lose those storage containers and everything in 'em, right?
Indy
I don't think you need the card anymore, just place it in a drawer or something. When you get arrested you only lose the stolen items on you, but then you can just steal them back if you have high enough sneak and lock picking skill. Sneaking is your friend, don't forget, attacking someone with sneak from behind is really powerful, especially as an assasin. Should be one of your primary attacks. To level up you need to go to sleep btw. Took me ages to figure that out loll. Now you've got a house, do some exploring and hit the caves, you can find quite alot of good stuff out there.

right, i was just worried that if i got arrested with that stolen extra storage card on me, they'd take my storage bins... i'll just leave it in the crate for now and see what happens...

yea, i am totally gonna hit up some caves tonight... maybe even some castle ruins too... i've been wanting to get into the whole battling aspect but, i've stuck to the main roads for the most part, trying to avoid the encounters as much as possible but, i obviously had to deal with the enemies on the paths... and i raided a couple of camps too... but now i think i am totally ready to see what the world has to offer off the main roads biggrin.gif...

my guy is fully decked out in leather armor, head to toe... i don't think there's anything else out there right now, with my current level being at 1 still, that would be any better so, i think i am ready with just a shortsword/shield combo and my trusty arrows biggrin.gif...

EDIT: i was a little worried earlier in this thread when i noticed that my character was a lot shorter than most... as much as almost 2 head lengths with the orcs... but, yesterday i learned that the guy you place bets with in the arena is actually a wood elf too... the problem is, HE'S STILL TALLER THAN ME!! laugh.gif... only by a couple of inches but, i think i've come to the conclusion that i made my character just a little too young or something because, i didn't see no height adjustment meter when creating the elf...

it's cool tho, it just adds more mystique to my tiny little assassin elf biggrin.gif...
Indy
Yeah, you're gonna want to travel in sneak mode for your initial attacks because you're light armour class. If you travel constantly in sneak mode eventually you'll become really fast. Also, stealing is like my favourite aspect of the game, light armour boots make hardly any sound when they sneak so you've got an advantage.

A tip for stealing, find a shop with valuable contents and sneak up to the owner and steal his/her key while their back is turned. Save before you try this, but when you eventually get the key; wait until night and when the shop owner goes to the pub/bar/house, enter the shop with the key you stole, and everything inside is yours! Don't worry if you're over encumbered, you can always come back the next night.

lol yea, learned that trick from fallout 3... pickpocketing keys off of NPC's biggrin.gif... and i've actually already broken into some houses to loot stuff from... haven't tried a shop yet so, i am gonna keep that in mind biggrin.gif...

if you take their inventory off the shelves and in bins with the key, do they close up shop, or do they get in new merchandise? and if that's the case, does the items you stole, regenerate back on the shelves? hmm...

EDIT: my leather boots make a lot of noise... maybe it's because my sneak skills are still really low (level 1, remember) but, with the arrows, i noticed i was still able to take out enemies before they spotted me usually... i noticed this during the prison break... i think i'll be fine since for the most part, even in fallout 3, i wandered through most indoor areas in sneak mode... it's a good habit to have, especially if your trying to be a sneaky little bastard laugh.gif...
Indy
Steal everything loll. It doesnt affect their inventory of what they sell you.
I used to take my boots off when trying to sneak. Also, try to get into the Dark Brotherhood, some NPCs will hint how to get in if you listen to their conversations with other NPCs.
bOnEs
i actually stumbled upon a dark brotherhood ancient door in an abandoned house in cheydinhal... however, i'm afriad i'll be doing very evil deeds like killing friendly's, and probably piss off the thieves guild... i may wait until after i finish up their quests because, the thieves guild is the ultimate guild for my character... it's the one he was meant to be a part of biggrin.gif...

looted the hell out of a couple houses in imperial city... found two more house upgrades for free (wonder if all houses can have their upgrades stolen like this one?) and a copper ring, which was worth the most when i sold my hot goods...

ventured into a couple of forts and a mine... found some "decent" loot, nothing too special though... however, those did help me advance a couple levels... i am now at level 3... fun though, was very easy to play as a silent assassin in these dark halls and caves... i was picking off the enemies well before most of them even saw me...

finally did a deep probe of the forest areas... well, just in one area but, it had to do with the quest from chorrol that had you reunite twin brothers... well anyways, on my way through the forest to this house they want to live in again (that had an orc problem), i found this town called, hackdirt, buried in the middle of the forest... a bunch stubborn bastards live here, they just wanted me to leave... i overheard a couple of them talking about some meeting in the evening where they'll discuss the new stranger (me)... so, i followed them all into the chapel in the evening but, they instructed me to leave immediately... i'll head back to chorrol and ask around town, to see if anyone knows what the deal is... there was a very very interesting book inside their chapel though... talked about a new way of living they discovered on the first page, and how 10 or 12 people witnessed the signing (odd)... then, the rest of the book was written in a very creepy alien-like language... this town has definitely gotten my attention... very intriguing...

found aleswell too laugh.gif... and all is not well with that little settlement... i thought i was witnessing a glitch when i first arrived... i saw a ground tiller moving up and down by itself, thought i was seeing a funny glitch... but, when i got closer, i realized it was a CLOAKED GUY!! lol, got the quest from there but, might not do it till later... i've got too many quests to do right now biggrin.gif... lol, even their sheep were cloaked!! i saw the blurbs moving along the road... i thought i was being followed but saw nothing... then the blurbs moved past me and i saw it said they were sheep... i had to LOL at that site laugh.gif...
asthenia
Aleswell. all is not well. Funny.

That place sounds interesting, whereabouts is it Boney?

I'm investigating Hackdirt at the moment, those little fuckers are up to something. Also, you won't piss off the Thieves Guild by killing anyone during Dark Brotherhood. I've only pissed off another guild while killing for them, and that was Mages Guild (killed a Mage).

I'm glad you're enjoying it man, it's addictive business.

Click to view attachment

somewhere in this area...

well then, i might do the brotherhood quests then... the problem though is one of the ways to meet them is to kill a NPC... i'm just afraid that i might piss of the thieves guild because, one of their rules is to not kill anyone...

hackdirt is an interesting little community isn't it? there's definitely something fishy going on and i am gonna try to figure it out on my own, without a guide... my best guess is someone in chorrol knows something...

----

i'm having a blast with this game now... the first night felt awkward... the second night seemed confusing... but last night, things started clicking after i started leveling up, and venturing into forts and shit... i'm starting to get a hang of it, and it's really starting to feel rewarding and fun now...

lol, i can see how analog gave up after a couple of hours laugh.gif... it takes a couple of days to get the hang of it...
Indy
You can kill NPCs whilst still in the theives guild, just not while you are on a mission for them. Progress through the theives guild to unlock better fences, fences have a maximum payout and sometimes you'll get way less than the item is worth if you're at a low fence. Don't forget to barter with the fences, get to know them well and you can trade for high percentages.

Ah Hackdirt.

If you've read The Call of Cthulhu, everything going on in that town will make more sense.

Funny how they come running my man, I don't ever have any these days cause I don't smoke it anymore lol. *sobs* I'm tempted to go on it and investigate shit but MGS is better than I thought. I only got it for £10 too. But man... that god damn game...

yea, i want to play MGS4 too... and i'll pry do what you did and get it at a cheap price... when i went to gamestop last weekend, MGS4 used was still about $40... i'm waiting for that awesome price drop... waiting for the same with little big planet too biggrin.gif... i wanna play both of these games but since they've long been released, i can obviously wait another few months for the price drops... i'm in no hurry laugh.gif...

...till then, i can easily start another fallout 3 file, buy godfather II, and obviously continue my journey in oblivion, which might take a year to complete, if i even get that far biggrin.gif... might end up starting over again and again just because of the obvious that each playthrough will be drastically different laugh.gif...

Yeah I waited on the drop for GRID since release. Got it for £20 then they said oh you can have another for another £10. ziiiing. LBP is sweet dude I have to replay that sometime.

Anyway, back on topic, do you fast travel much? What horse've you got?
bOnEs
naw, i don't own a horse yet, saving my money for more house upgrades, or another house biggrin.gif... there's that horse that you get to borrow from that priest guy after you show him the kings amulet... that's the one i use if i need one, even though its really fucking slow... one time, there was this courier lady who rode off and died at the hands of wolves... i was using her stolen horse for a while, until i lost it laugh.gif... that horse was a lot faster than the priests horse...

i fast travel a lot... even inside of cities, i'll fast travel to the other end if it'll save me some time...

finished up the "two sides to the coin" quest from bruma last night... not sure where to go from here... probably back to the arena since i now have better armor and weapons from looting the great hall in bruma... chainmail kicks ass!! and now i am a journeyman in sneak so, my shoes no longer a factor in sneaking, hell yes!!

Dark Brotherhood gives you the best horse in the game, Shadowmere, might wanna check it out, its pretty far into dark brotherhood story line though.

You can also get a unicorn to ride.

Hes pretty bad ass apart from being a unicorn.
Indy
Yeah my horse and I killed the damn unicorn by accident. It looked like a Minotaur.

Prior Maborel's paint horse. I don't know where that is anymore, I think I left it in the Imperial City. The courier womans is a black horse. Fastest horse you can buy. Yeah Shadowmere's pretty badass, it only gets knocked out too, so far on my game atleast, it hasn't been killed. Red eyes and a little Black Hand on its saddle. Sweet.

I still haven't found the Unicorn, but I haven't looked for it either. I like Shadowmere enough to not replace himher yet.

I remember when I was a noob and I killed Umbra, after some difficulty, and stole took her armour. Rip-off ebony armour, but it was as good as orcish armour. Found her by accident, good times.
