I was so into talking about stealing souls that I forgot the last post was supposed to be two parts. My method, if you’re curious, is this: Rather than picking a questline, like Main Quest, Thieves Guild, or Companions, and doing them from start to finish, I’ve decided I’m going to do just about everything. The best way I can figure to do this is by going geographically.I was in Whiterun to start (and you probably were too) so I talked to everyone, gathering quests. Then I figure out which ones are closest to Whiterun, rather than another city. I complete all the quests I have in the area. If I get a quest that sends me somewhere else, I put it on a list for that city (it’s easier than going through the many quests and using the map each time I go from town to town). After Whiterun, I decided to go to Riften to check out my gem. I gathered more quests and did a majority of them. I got into a drinking contest and woke up in Markarth! So I emptied my quest list and loaded all the ones near Markarth. Any time I run out of quests in an area, I’ll just figure out the next place to go. I’m avoiding the carriage for now, because I like to explore. I try to minimize the use of fast travel as well. You never know when you’ll come across some beautiful place (or some awesome loot). I’ll fast travel back to my house in Whiterun every now and then to dump some of my stuff when I get close to encumbrance, but I fast travel right back to that previous location. I keep all my ingredients in a chest in my house and do all my alchemy at once. Same goes for all my ores and ingots. I only carry food items that will give me more than 10 health back at a shot. I need to start doing more dungeon delving though, because I’m out of health potions (they seem to show up in urns and packs in dungeons more than anything else, and vendors only sell so many). I thought I’d find enough to not worry about it, instead of using my healing spells, but it turns out I may have been wrong. I’m also a hoarder and hate buying anything, so I wasn’t buying potions even though I have a fully loaded house and over 11,000 gold. I also have three spare dragon souls since I have only found one dragon word that wasn’t part of the main quest or companion quest. Time to get out and explore more!
