Skyrim is one of those games that will simply overwhelm you with content. You can stick to the main story and still up end spending hundreds of hours in the Elder Scrolls universe. Or, which is more likely, you will end up getting sidetracked by the multitude of minor quests, objectives and stories. This is where Skyrim really comes into form, as it gives off the impression that every action, how unimportant it seems, is going to have a consequent effect on the remainder of the story you are playing through with your character.
It’s been a good few months since I last played Skyrim and I have to admit, I completely lost touch with my character – a Dark Elf Mage – and so decided I would start something new. This time, I would do it differently though. I was going to create a new character and set some specific rules. I would not use any magic, what so ever. I would stick to either the Stormcloaks OR the Imperials. Not a bit of both. Finally, my character would have to have certain morals. There would be no stealing and certainly no “accidental” killing of Tamriel residents.
And so Sorbitar was born. A proud (probably around mid thirties) Nord man, who simply was at the wrong place at the wrong time and got himself arrested along with the leader of the Stormcloak Rebels. This clearly wasn’t going to be a good day because we all know what happens to those who get caught mingling with the Rebel kind. Executions are the order of the day and that’s exactly where we were heading. Those of you who played Skyrim before will know how this unfolds, however, I will stop at this point for now.
The real misadventures of Sorbitar will start soon. Consider this as a brief introduction and more importantly a heads up .
