  • A general question; do we know if genies exist in TES lore? I'd imagine that they would in Hammerfell, but I can't seem to find any evidence for or against the point. I think that'd make for an interesting backstory, a wish gone wrong, and next thing you know you're on your way to Helgen.
  • Thanks Henson, I don't spend as much time in this group as I probably should, so I wasn't positive where to direct my questions :) I'll pop over to the help thread right away!
  • Hi Jolly, you could certainly direct your question to The Roleplaying Help Thread. Course of action questions are situational as we need to know even more about your character.

  • Sooo I'm normally not very vocal in this group, but I have a roleplaying question that I need some opinions on. With my imperial rogue, I really want all 3 words of marked for death, but I'm not sure weather to wipe it the brotherhood or join them... The character is fairly honorable, he's a thief and outlaw but not a murderer, I usually knock down guards to their knees instead of slaying them, etc. but just slaughtering the brotherhood just for a shout doesn't appeal to me either... What should my course of action be?
    • You can kill them and still get the word from their sanctuary
  • Hi! I just joined this group today. I hope that i will learn the "rules" of this place quick :D.

  • Henson and I discussed them and said that we don't like the current format for them... If you want to know more, go to skype
  • Expect some new discussions coming from me and Henson :)
  • does anybody have a recommended combat style for my thief build, i dont want to be an assassin just a pickpocket and house raider but i often run into trouble

    • Try using a single dagger enchanted with paralysis. That way your focus is on finding cover after the initial hit, and not finishing off your attacker. Depends on your character, but I like the idea of a thief who tries to remain undetected, and doesn't kill. For when you're tomb raiding, or out in the wilds, use a mace or have a tough follower to aid you.
