Traversing the lands of Skyrim, just like any old Nord.

About

Basically, this is a play-through of the PC game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but in a non-linear fashion. I am playing the game as if I was an average Nord, kind of like an NPC (Non Player Character) being thrown into the position of the Dragonborn, and I’m acting and reacting like a normal Nord would.

Boziik Gein going walk-about.For example, I’m walking everywhere (except during combat, hunting etc.), I’m eating and sleeping like a normal living creature, I’m not diving into adventure, I’m letting it come to me. I am preferably going to look for regular ways to earn a living other than looting dungeons (looting dungeons, however is not out of the question). Elder Scrolls games often have a habit of forcing their humongous, wildly sprawling adventures and quests upon me every second, so I’m putting to the test just how much Skyrim sticks to that.

I have goals, such as finding a steady source of income (looting dungeons does not count as steady), owning a house, a horse, finding a spouse and just chilling as an average Nord amidst a raging civil war and prophesied dragon return. My major goal, will be, obviously, to finish the main quest, however I believe this will take a long, long, long time. Namely because I’m walking everywhere, but we’ll see how it goes.

What a sexy monster!

My character’s name is Boziik Gein (10 points if you can figure out the meaning). He is an average Nord, with no special qualities that any other average Nord wouldn’t have. He has the same dreams of saving the world from the return of the Dragons that every other Nord has, the same ragged, messy hair that every other Nord has, and the same well-toned torso muscles that every other Nord has.

Get the picture? Boziik is a normal Nord dude.

This should be fun.

    Actually sounds like a really fun idea. I would like to try this myself once I upgrade my PC.
