Here be dragon slayers!

I use ice weapons. Dragons don't like ice. They breathe fire and fart sulphur, so ice is the last thing they cope with. Which is why I use the Ice Sword of Banderbar as often as possible when slaying dragons. But as with all enchanted weapons, the charge doesn't last forever, so I hunt for souls to trap in order to bring my sword back to full power once again.

You can't just trap a soul though... You need a soul gem to house it in, and you need a soul trap spell or weapon to kill your victim with. And those things cost gold. So I work as a mercenary in my spare time, toiling every day to earn more gold so I can buy the weapons I need and the gems required. Then I can trap more souls, recharge Banderbar's Ice Sword, and... Well, then I can slay more dragons!

Welcome to the world of Skyrim. Quite simply the most immersive role playing game on the planet. If you played Oblivion, you'll have seen the tip of the iceberg which is Skyrim. Bethesda Studios have outdone themselves this time, and the release of their latest instalment in the Elder Scrolls franchise came on 11-11-11 - just in time to be included the best of 2011.

Sure, Steve Jobs passed away; and the iPhone4S arrived; and Samsung Galaxied themselves into a stupor and Nokia partnered with Windows... But in a year's time all of that will have paled into the grey mush of the technological past. Skyrim, however, will remain. Because slaying your first dragon is something you'll never forget.

Yes, it's the shout box that runs on ajax or something. Anyway, we disabled a lot of characters when we had a huge spam problem. I will ask that they allow it again.
