“Those who say that mods take away from Skyrim, have obviously not seen the right mods. “Climates of Tamriel” adds the most beautiful sunsets and sunrises I have ever seen, moving aurora borealis, heavy snow and fog. “Frostfall – Hypothermia Camping Survival” will guarantee that you will freeze to death in those heavy snows, become soaked and sick in that heavy rain or stay dry and happy in the sun. Thought it would be a good idea to take a dip in that frosty water around Winterhold? Too bad you will die minutes if you do. While some mods may make Skyrim look like a Japanese MMORPG, there are plenty others that will give you more immersion than you could ever hope for.”

“I HATE Dwemer ruins with a passion and try to avoid going into them unless absolutely necessary. I don’t like it when things jump out at me from the dark and the Falmer are just creepy. They remind me of Gollum from The Lord of the Rings series. The way that they are all boney and pasty and slink around in the dark…it gives me the creeps! Even after clearing out a ruin or a hold, I still expect something to jump out and scare the shit out of me.”

“I really didn’t have fun with magic until I started really playing around with Phenderix’s Magic Evolved Mod. Holy spells for the Restorative Magic School are the most bad ass things I have ever seen. I just about fell off my chair when I summoned a mini fire dragon that I set loose on Whiterun. I started turning the difficulty level up on my game and installed a harder dragon mod just so I could have a real challenge.”

“I have come to call the area surrounding My Woodland Home (formally known as Lucky’s Shack), “Dragon Alley”. This is because there are two dragon spawn points nearby and I have a tendency to be attacked when I fast travel to back home. As such, my front yard is currently littered with the remains of any dragon unfortunate enough to stop by for a visit.”

“One of my favorite mods of all times is the “Build Your Own Home” mod, which allows you to take over Lucky’s Shack and build your own fully customizable home in a lore friendly way.  Every time I start a new character, I look forward to saving up materials and rediscovering the location just so I can build and decorate all over again.”

“I have a really hard time sticking to a single character on account that I want to try out the different races and playing styles. However, I was seeing that each of my characters was becoming very dull on account they all started out the same way, did the same beginning quests and there was nothing different about them; I couldn’t even come up with different back stories since they all started out the same way. Then I found the Live Another Life Mod. I find it so invigorating to be able to explore Skyrim and explore my character before even considering the main quests or being ‘Dragonborn’.”

“When starting my second character, I knew exactly what I needed to do while Alduin attacked, so I ran ahead of the NPC and into the Keep. However, the first thing I see after getting into the Keep was this disembodied head just popping out in front of me.  At first, I thought it was some sort of Easter Egg that the developers planted, like some sort of troll face designed to pop out at the player. After moving further into the room, I then realized that it was just Jarl Ulfirc peeking around the corner. Now, every time I start a new character and run into the Keep, or see Jarl Ulfric, I cannot help but to picture him with the classic “Troll Face.””
