    53. You post a thread on this forum about making money fast.

    (Guilty. Second post, in fact. First was about beating the game without Wraithguard. *shudders* I even spelled it "w/o" in the title.)

    Hey, those can actually be quite good skills for an interesting game and they're not as bad as you think. Without carrying weapons or armour you can run really fast and hand to hand goes up really quickly so you can easily get 5x speed at level up. Fists also damage enemies that normally require magical, silver, ebony etc weapons to harm and once you get and enemies fatigue down they are as good as dead. Humanoids also tend to have low fatigues so knocking them out can be a lot faster than killing with a weapon. Also, spellcasters will constantly fail casting and opponents miss more often. Granted its not as good as long blades and heavy armour, but using a character like that is so easy its practically cheating.

    54. You think mage characters are good.

    With the way the magic and combat system in Morrowind works, mages are at a definite disadvantage. I downloaded a few mods to rectify this though. The one I'm currently using completely changes the levelling system. Magic skills can be raised above 100 and you level automatically. As you use skills, they also raise automatically. It also multiplies your magicka by a great deal, making it possible to actually walk around without restore magicka potions. Once all that has been done, being a mage can be pretty fun.

    I take it you mean Morrowind, not Oblivion. They claim to have changed magicka to make it useful in Oblivion, I think it regenerates now. Everyone seems to be so caught up waiting for Oblivion, they think about Oblivion while they talk about Morrowind... If you get what I mean. Hey I'm just as guilty as everyone else, done loads of research on it, bought a new graphics card for it and pre-ordered it (granted it was cheap). I just hope they haven't screwed it up.

    That's the second time I've mistaken Oblivion for Morrowind

    The words are too similar I tell you! Yes they are, you Communist!

    Whatever.

    The only time I get mana is when I get my foot stuck up a mages' ass.

    9. You don't bother saving the game when your first level character enters a very dark cave lit entirely with red candles.

    You buy one cheapo potion of levatition, and use it to early in the game to "fly" to the Ministry of reeduction, find the door is locked and are stuck there with no way down.

    you steal the "soul" gems off the desk of the Enchanter in Bolarma, and think you are rich

    #?: (True Story) Disregarding the main quest you immediately walk to vivec, because you've looked at the paper map and it appears to be the biggest city in the game and you want to be a thief.

    2#: You find the first unimportant looking person in a house and kill them so you have somewhere to live. Only to find out later that there are two houses in vivec right next to each other that are unoccupied (one with a ghost in it).

    3#: Frustrated that the guards keep killing you because you suck at stealing, you find out that it's actually possible to shoot though doors if you're close enough, so you attack a guard and then run get on the side of the door that opens toward you. Since you're in the way way the guard can't open it and sits there running at you without getting to you while you whiddle his life away with a shitty bow and shitty arrows. Since he dies before he gets to talk to you, you don't get a bounty.

    4#: You do all of the above in a shop, strip the guard of all his items and sell them to the shop owner.

    5#: You get your major skills in thief character to level 35 without leaving vivec.

    6#: You find out that the best way to make money is to get really high mercantile, find all of the shop owners with a lot of money and buy all their arrows and then sell them back for more than you paid. Before leaving vivec.

    7#: You need a strategy guide to figure out how to solve the downing puzzle under the temple.

    8. You have a VERY high bounty and you try to run to mournhold as a hideout

    For those who dont know what that does...well let just say I spent half an hour running around the city from gaurds,high ordinators and some guy in speedos (The high guards are faster and tougher and have healing potions. I had to set speed to 200 just to get away (barely)


    p.s. dont hurt the man in speedos

    p.s.s. Mournhold is on the computer version for those who have x box!

    #9 - You cheat to get a lot of money so Gaenor wont kill you in Mournhold, without realising that he tries to kill you anyway if you give him 1,000,000

    #10 - You buy the Door Opening scroll so you can break Vivec's lock

    #11 - You finally manage to kill an ordinator and think donning his armour is a good idea

    #12 - You think Corporus beasts are zombies

    #13 - You spend 3 hours trying to find a levatating potion to get back to the top of Tel Fyr, not realising the Dwemer Boots of Flying actually fly

    #14 - You steal everything and sell it in Seyda Neen just so you can afford the boat trip to Khuul and spend a great 7 hours trying to reach Castle Kaarstag without dying

    #15 - You don the heaviest armour you can afford and get annoyed that in fights you always get knocked down

    16 - You get to the end of the game and think "oh, thats a cool explosion. Who the hell were the dwemmer anyway?"

    17 - You are convinced Nerevar is an ingredient in a restore Magicka potion.
