Had 2 cracking moments earlier.

1: just outside the north gate of Riften. Was on my way back inside after some questing, when a dragon appeared. Slaughtered him good with my mace/sword dual wield combo. Then, what seemed like the entire population of Riften had been stood behind me watching in awe as I killed said dragon. Then some Nord guy starts saying how strong he is. So I beat him up too.

2: just south of Windhelm is a clearing with a Necromancer. As I approached, I noticed a 3 way battle between the Necromancer, Flame Atronach and a Bear. Was great to watch them kill each other, except the witch who took one swing off my mace. Then I felt the ground shake. A Mammoth had been spectating the whole time, and started to walk off as he was bored.

Gotta be said, I love the random moments that Elder Scrolls offers. Wether Bethesda intend this or not, its just pure genius.

Did a cave filled with ghosts, was lacking carrying cap. I decided to head back to WhiteRun to go back to my house, the city was being attacked by a dragon. Guards where bowing it, so I joined in and killed it. Now its skeleton is parked right next to my house BrezzeHome . I think they will stay there permenate, as the other dragons bones did. If people dont belive I am the dragonborn, now I have evidence lol.

Ok, here is one that made me chuckle just now. Let out a dragon shout in Riften Keep since I thought sending the items on the dinner table flying might be amusing.

As soon as I step out, a courier gives me this, and a map marker was added when I read it-

"Rebecca,

You caused a bit of stir in Riften Mistveil Keep when you demonstrated the power of your Thu'um. Not everyone is anxious for the return of the Dragonborn.

I for one desire to see you grow and develop your talents. Skyrim needs a true hero these days.

You should turn your attention to Silverdrift Lair. I understand it holds a mysterious source of power that can only be unlocked by dragonborn.

Sincerely,

A Friend"


Really neat touch to get something like that from such a random act! I wonder if the place is just a lair of giant f'ing spiders and they're trying to get rid of me...

Had another one just a little while ago.

Was near a river bed hunting mud crab (mostly because one scared the shit out of me).

Picking them off one, by one. No big deal. Then I hear a loud splash. I turn around and floating down the river towards me is a sabre cats corpse. Have no idea where it came from, or how it died. But I looted it regardless.

Had a few weird moments.

I encountered a giant and his mammoth, after the first time i upset a giant, thought it best to leave them. As i started circling around them the mammoth started shaking as if there was a texture glitch, then suddenly a 2nd mammoth appeared, hovering above the first

After i defeated the first dragon, i've been in and out of Whiterun a few times, then last night as i exited the town at the main gate the dragon's skeleton dropped out of the sky. It's now permanently resting at the main gate.

Also had a funny conversation in the Jarl's house, i picked up a weapon but was carrying too much so i dropped it and a guard approached me, and said that it was careless to leave a weapon lying around and if i do it again, there will be trouble. Looking forward to what happens when i get home from work and drop another weapon, i'll capture it if it's any good.

I was fighting a frost dragon then he lands next to me. Then out of no where a random fugitive makes me talk with him. During that time the dragon killed me.

Last night, I was clearing out a den of thieves with my flame atronach when something amusing happened:

The last thief got to the point where he was heavily wounded, so he had dropped to his knees begging for mercy. My atronach slowly strolled up to him and stared at him. He raised his head to meet her gaze, asking for his life. They stared at each other for a moment, then she kamehameha'd him in the face.

Lots of fun in this thread

My story is a little bit of "humorous", a small hint of "WTF", and a tiny hint of "Holy Crap"

I found a giant and two mammoths outside Whiterun, when I was only around level 5. I had a friend over in real life, and I had read that giants do not attack you unless you attack their mammoths, so I naturally walked proudly over to the giant to show my friend.

Needless to say, the "fact" that I had read, was false, and the giant was not happy at all to see me. So I ran all I could, and used up all my stamina, as I had my direction set for some kind of structual building to the west. That showed to be a bad idea, as that place was a fort, with another giant guarding it!

He spotted me, and now I suddenly had 2 giants following me, as I keep running for my life. (Note: none of the mammoths followed me)

I follow the road(ish) south, heading towards Whiterun, thinking that I could kite them there and let the guards kill them. On my way south, I get to a little house (near the western outpost). The house is filled with a huge dragon-skeleton, stuck, shaking due to it being a too big dragon in a too small house. I find out it was the first dragon I killed, the one in the western outpost. I then got the idea of running to the outpost instead, as there will probably be guards there.

That was not the case though, as when I get closer, I see not only one, but two dragons holding the control of the outpost. One of the dragons spots me, and keeps following me. I was lucky to only aggro one of the dragons though! So now I have had enough, and set sail for Whiterun. As I get through the first gate (not into the city, just inside the first set of walls before the main gate), the dragon lands inside and the guards has almost killed it. I load up my dual-flame-spells, and attack it for all I have. The dragon drops dead, and I absorb the soul. Whoohoo!

When the absorbtion is done, I can finally see again, and what do I see? You guessed it, one of the giants that had followed me. (Note: one of the two giants somewhere stopped following me). It hits me down to something that I can imagine was like 1 or 2 health, and I quickly drink all the health-potions I have, and all the magicka-potions too, so I can fight it. I start unleashing all my flames, waiting for the guards to come help me. The guards somehow heard my scream for help, and came to my rescue!

My first thoughts then was: Wow, a dragon and a giant killed, so proud!
Only to find out that one of my flames had hit one of the soldiers, so they are now all after me!!!! I panick out, selecting my Whirlwind Sprint shout (with only the first Word), and use it from the city-wall and out into the wilderness. It blinks me forward, maybe like 10 meters, where I then fall down, maybe like 3-4 meters. That fall was too much for me to handle, maybe the speed from the shout did it, but I was at full health when I Shouted, and was found dead on the ground 2 seconds after.

Thats when I find out that the last time the game was saved, was just before I met the first giant...

The best moment I have had so far, more so then being launched into orbit by a Giant, was my very first encounter with a giant

After watching several videos leading up to Skyrim's launch, I had assumed Giants were friendly. I approached the Giant camp outside of Whiterun and saw a giant just milling about.

I nonchalantly stroll up to this Giant to marvel at it. It made no threats or anything. It simply pulled a King Leonidas and kicked me straight in the face, killing me instantly and rocketing my body across the valley.

At 4am, that was about the funniest thing I had ever seen.

Alvor (blacksmith in Riverwood) sent a hit-squad after me for stealing some of his ingots. I have evidence as well.

its funny you posted anything from the holey grail, as i have always wanted someone to create a mod for oblivion (better yet, skyrim) where you actually quest for the holey grail, and you must go and get all the companions just like in the movie...

I was chasing a goat around, hitting it with my shock spell. It ran into the river and disappeared. 5 seconds later it pops back up as it's going over the waterfall.

And he was never seen again.

I was reading this thread whilst playing when I had my first hilarious moment just now! Was clearing out some fort and accidently stepped on a pressure plate...a massive metal door swung out in a wide arch but somehow I managed to avoid it.

I look behind me to check on my companion and catch him doing some crazy sommersalt out of the way of this gate! I thought that in itself was pretty cool.
I then wander back past the trap again to make sure hes really ok...the gate then swings back for a second time, squashing my companion against the wall where hes walked forward to follow me! Was hilarious! XD

I was in Riverwood and failed a pickpocket. The townsfolk started running around screaming for help, then this archer dude shot the guy I tried to pickpocket in the head. After that everybody went back to normal.

I found it funny that they attacked the victim and not me

I like to think of my character as the most interesting man in the world. The other night my brother asked me why I was using a bow and what was it called? I couldn't resist saying I don't always use a bow but when I do i use Dos Equis.

Cool, that is another really neat touch! Now I'm going to have to go and throw all sorts of crap on the ground to see what they'll say. Hopefully this isn't like Harvest Moon where littering hurts friendship, haha!

Something similar happend to me. I wanted to skill my pickpocketing and was in the companions house and pickpocked some clothes from the sleeping people. As they were only 2-3 coins worth i just dropped them on one of the beds and several seconds later one of the companions woke up and started talking with me and said somethig like:
"Hey! they clothes over there! are they ours? or can i take them?"
and as i said no they arent mine and he can take them he he responded somethign like "Oh boy! that is the best day of my life!"

I dropped a book outside my house...around 20 mins later I went back to drop off some goods...as I exited, two guys were arguing over the book. One guy then pulls out a silver dagger... the other guy just starts running away yelling "guards!!". the guy with the dagger picks up the book and starts walking off with it like nothing happened.

I wonder if i find the guy who took the book and pickpocket him, will it show up in his inventory?

That is epic! Might give it a go. Had another funny moment. Was up by Solitude, taking on Black Briar gang (think that's their name), amd once down to the last one, he was badly injured, then ran into the sea, and swam north further than the game would allow. Hope the coward freezes I thought. I returned to land, happy that a job had been well done, and then *thud* I turned around, and it was that same guy, he smacked me round the head with his mace! Used my dragon shout to kill him with such force, his body went back out to sea.

I just had a Holy Crap moment. Was in Riften but was carrying some dragon bones that were weighing me down. Fast traveled to my house in Whiterun to store it.
When I fast traveled back to Riften to continue joining the thieves guild I was going to The Ratway when I see two thief corpses in the market area. I went and looted a diamond, ruby and 2 sapphires. Not too shabby for stumbling across a couple of corpses.

Had another strange one today. Walking through Riverwood when I hear people screaming help. The guards unsheathe their weapons, and begin circling the traders place. So after a minute or so they stop, and begin walking away as normal. One even told me to be more careful when using my destructive spells in town (I hadn't. I was just sitting there watching).

So I then walk into the traders house to sell some extra stuff, and what do I find 2 thieves. Except they are running up and down the stairs screaming we surrender. The trader doesn't pay them any attention. So I sell my stuff, and leave. Still really confused as to what was going on.

Talking

Ok, just had a chance to try dropping stuff, and I think I have a new favorite hobby: littering. In the market center of Whiterun, dropped about twenty things-- gems, books, bear claws, a ring, about half a dozen cabbages, ect.

Immediately a woman at a stall bitches at me about it. "In my day we knew how to dispose of trash properly!!" or something like that. Pffttt, hehehe!! Then some guy runs up and asks if I can have the armor I just dropped. I'm like, it's all yours! And his day is made.

I had an interesting random encounter the other day. I came across a farmer with a painted cow. I went up to him going "what's up with the cow?". He explained that the cow was an offering to the giants so they won't attack him or his livestock. I figured that this would be interesting to watch, so I followed him and the cow as they strolled right into the nearby giant camp.

The cow became a fully accepted member of the giant tribe. The farmer's corpse was found about a mile to the west.

Man, I really want to see this in my game now.

You guys all have some great stories. These are awesome. Lots of good laughs. Just what I was hoping for.
