Thanks for the reply, I was afraid something like this was goin to happen with me at some point in this game. At least it happens with the Civil War, which worse case I can load a new game, escape & go straight to the Imperals/Stormcloaks.

Does anyone know if doing the Civil War questline limits quests/tasks because you take the side of either the Imperial or Stormcloaks? IE - if i finished the questline for the Imperial would I be allowed in Windhelm still to finish those quests?

Yes, whichever side your on, a new Jarl will take charge of the city after you finish the quest line, and they now love you cause your the one that made it possible for him/her to be promoted. However, a lot of people have complained of glitches where certain quests couldnt be completed cause the quest giver was one of the people who died in the raid. This isnt actually a real glitch(though i suppose it could be in a few minor cases), those people just havent waited long enough for Radiant to assign a new quest giver for you to return to.

Awesome thanks! That's sort of what I assumed but wasn't 100% sure. I'll definitely save it for last though.

You might have to complete "the forsworn conspiracy" first, just read the note Eltys gave to you and you should get the quest if not before that. After you complete that you should be able to do the quests for the jarl.

In my quest information screen the option to become a full member of the thieves guild remains unfinished for the "no stone unturned" quest. Thing is i've already fully completed the thieves guild missions, achievements etc. I have found 6 stones of barenziah aswell which were removed from my inventory when i completed "no one escapes cidhna mine" quest. Do i just need to finish collecting the stones to fully complete this?

I bought the house in Markarth without doing the Forsworn Conspiracy.

You have to do a quest for the Jarl. I forget what the quest name is, but you have to retrieve a shield for him.

EDIT: The quest is called Dungeon Delving, and is given to you by the Jarl's Steward, Igmund.

I didn't think I should start a new thread for this, so I'll drop this here:

Game Banshee has posted an awesome map of Skyrim with a really nice alphabetical list of all discover-able locations. Check it out.

Just wanted to let you know so you can update.

The conjuration skill only increases when you first cast a bound weapon spell, if you continue to use the bound weapon it then falls under the weapon category, eg casting a bound sword in combat will raise you conjuration skill, then using the sword on enemies will raise your one-handed skill.

Also soul trap only needs to sucessfully hit the enemy to raise the skill, you don't need to sucessfully trap the soul by killing them.

Friendly NPC's eg towns folk still count, allowing you to raise your skill by constantly casting Muffle or Invisibility while in a town or residence.

Just added it thanks, I knew the Guide wouldn't be 100% correct with everything, but I thought simple things like that should have been right. I haven't played as a mage yet so I hadn't really bothered to confirm myself.

Question: Has anyone found a use for the "Philter of the Phantom" potion?

To scare the town folk into thinking you are a ghost!

It is not a 100% reliable source but here is a link to The Elder Scrolls wiki: http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Wyndelius_Gatherian

Yeah cheers, I have done that quest but didn't know if I could use the potions for anything else but a laugh. I actually haven't tried using them in town before talking to someone but I accidently used one in a battle against 4 Dremora and they didn't seem to care that I looked all spectral and spooky.

After seeing what Skyrim is like and watching a mate play it. I do believe it is an Epic Game, I have a real urge to buy it but I wanted some advice.

Is it worth getting if I hadn't played Oblivion?
My mate says that if I want to get a bit more in depth with the story and lore then I should get oblivion 1st...

Would love some outside/inside peoples opinions!

No worries, yeah so far i've only dabbled in basic spells but having 80+ in most thief/warrior skills, figured it was time to grind out the mage.

Have to admit, i'm not liking the 'valid target' restriction for spells, i miss the days of casting the alteration spell over and over on doors.

Lydia sucks. I did the Thieves Guild quest with the bees and she got stuck fighting 2 guys so I left her.
I went back after turning in the quest and cleaned out the remaining mercenaries.
No Lydia to be found. No body, no stuff. How do I find her or has she vanished?

Does anyone know if you can use stolen goods to forge with? Like Ingots that were stolen, I think you can't but im not entirely sure? If anyone can confirm if you can or not that would be helpful.

Ok because I was using the forge to make stuff and it said I didn't have the stuff but when I backed out of the forge and checked it was there it just said stolen. So maybe i was just missing something, thanks.

Nah it's a Bethesda game :-P

Question: Where's the best place to sell loot?

I have tried so many shops but they have fuck all money like 750 or 1000. I must have 30K's worth of goods that I can't sell.

Is there a set number of dragons?

Best place to sell imo is The Thieves Guild, they buy anything, and once you've finished the quest line you can sell up to 4k at a time.

And dragons respawn, so no limit.

I have this one Elder Dragon that wont land, fuck off or be effected by anything whilst in Riverwood. Its killed a villager and really annoyed me any hints?

EDIT: Sorry, I eventually killed it by running away and it landing. IT landed with basic CGI though, odd.

^ Have you done the main quest yet? Just use Dragonrend when they won't land, should do the trick.

Not yet, leaving the main quest till last I think. I'm only as far as the Greybeards. I swear I would have punched this dragon to death myself if I could!

Ah okay. Well if it happens a lot it might be worth doing some more of the quests until you get to the Dragonrend bit, save you some stress. It's about half way through the story.

I might just do the story, ya'know? To get it out of the way. I can do all the same things AFTER the story, can't I?
