    Re: TES V: Skyrim

    Is the leveling system the same from Oblivion? I had to go through three characters to figure out which skills I don't want in my major skill set so that I am not fighting enemies, such as minotaurs with a skill set of 20-30 for my heavy armor, block, and blade and weak restorations spells.

    Dragons you say? I got yer dragons right here!

    Dragons seem to be triggered by fast travel or cart travel, especially to the cities. They are also in about a dozen fixed locations which you will be given bounties on: talk to people in the towns and ask about work where it's a option (inn owners are best). I now have a full set for me and another for Lydia, my carl.

    One weird dragon moment: I fast-travelled to a fort I'd wanted to use as a start point. I'd cleared it out once, but bandits had occupied it again. The dragon circled a couple of times then swooped in and crash-landed. It ended up with its head through the gate trying to get at the bandits.

    Close enough - it's the Bethesda Way. Yes, using a skill raises your ability in that skill, enabling it to do more damage/protection/work/repair etc. Thus the same sword with skill 100 will do a lot more damage than with skill 10. Perks become available, related to the skill level you have reached plus other qualifying factors. But perks can be put into any skill, as long as they qualify, not just the ones you have raised in the last round. As is usually the case with perks, some are good, others nearly useless.

    Yes, I've had a few weird dragon moments like this too. I was fighting a Blood Dragon. Where I was fighting it, there was no place for it to land so it was just circling overhead. Suddenly, something on the other side of a river caught its attention, so it started attacking something else out of sight. Whatever it was fighting hit it with some sort of stamina drain because it dramatically crashed into the side of a mountain. It got up in a few moments later and kept fighting, though.

    And it was fighting a group of Forsworn, if anybody is interested. Roaming around the Vale, the Forsworn has become my new most hated enemy.

    Also, I was able to create one set of DragonPLATE armor and I'm not crazy about how it looks. The bones look weird. Maybe I'll try the Dragonscale armor instead. My character is a heavy armor dude, but should be easy enough to switch over to light armor with the new leveling system.

Got the later two by sniping off a rock they couldn't climb. Took a long time though.

    There are the named dragons and then random ones in the main world, a few even pop up in dungeons. ( My Mage is around 10-11 kills so far on dragons with 1 sanctioned giant kill which is a random quest.)

    There are also dragon shrines which also have words of power.

    That reminds me... Meridian, if you go in the journal, under "Magic" there's a line that has number of Dragon Souls Absorbed, which is of course equal to dragons killed.

    Re: TES V: Skyrim

    You spend dragon souls in order to unlock words of power, and you get at least 1 free unlock from the grey beards.

    There are a total 20 shouts with 3 words each. ( Each word requires a dragon soul outside the free unlocks.)

    Yeah, but does the free unlock show up as a dragon soul absorbed in the journal?

    The number shown is the number of souls not yet used to unlock shouts, not the total ever acquired. Unlock a shout and watch it drop by one. I hadn't got around to unlocking any shouts not unlocked by the main quest (I'm capable of killing most things without them) and it showed thirteen. That would suggest (Keven) that the scripted soul don't count as it is put into a shout and would be removed from the total.

    Re: TES V: Skyrim

    Interesting. Thought it was a total number. Odd they don't have a total tally for dragons killed. I mean, they have one for "bunnies slaughtered" which is sort of an easter egg/tongue-in-cheek stat, but nothing for dragons, which are pretty key to the game.

    The problem is not all dragons are created equal, some specific ones don't count for dragon souls for one.
