Screenshots – Bones, Beauties and Blacksmiths

2014-03-04_00001Here’s another set of screenshots I took over the last few weeks. Originally I thought we could turn this into a running segment, as in Screenshot Saturday, but then I realized I really don’t play enough Skyrim to justify a weekly collection of screenies. Modding Skyrim, sure, but playing it, just haven’t had the time. Also today is Tuesday.

This first shot is a nice little action photo. Too bad about the text – I’d photoshop it out if I wasn’t so lazy. As I mentioned previously, I’ve been staying in Riften for most of my recent playthrough – just there for the fishing I guess – and picked up Skjel on my way to test the new quest. While I’ve heard people say he’s a poor fighter, he was casting Frost Atronachs and smashing heads at level 25, so he seemed pretty badass to me.

2014-02-27_00011I wasn’t sure if Yushari’s flower carrying mechanism was working properly, but lately I’ve seen her pottering around Riften with her wares in hand. Serana, meanwhile, is also hard at work in her career as a professional creeper. Soon.

2014-03-10_00002Here’s Balimund wearing his brand new bread-based kneeguard. He bakes them over his fire salt forge and then lets them sit out in the sun until they get so stale they can stop a spear. Some mistakenly believe that bread goes stale due to a loss of moisture, but it’s actually due to starch retrogradation, which is science talk for magic.

In any case, Balimund proves you don’t have to be a master smith to make capable armor, just grab some bread and some glue and you’re ready to face a Draugr horde. Just pray the Draugr don’t own bread knives, because then you’re completely fucked.

2014-03-07_00004I moved Alphena from outside the Retching Netch to a little box just outside the docks, allowing her to theoretically accompany you from the moment you step on dry land. I say theoretically because again this mod will never happen.

2014-02-08_00013Sometimes Serana will get really creative with her sandboxing. This is her getting into an Indian Step to set up for a classic “B-Boy Flare” maneuver popularized by the legendary Rocksteady…what? A horse and carriage bug? Nonsense. Serana is a street legend and also incredibly insane.

2014-02-06_00004Well, that’s it for another episode of 3DNPC screenshots. Somehow Meresine and I managed to get another picture posing with a corpse before Serana could fondle it, but perhaps she was too busy working on her windmills.

  1. Maybe you don’t have time for a weekly picture column, but whatever I see of your Serana is certainly uplifting. Mine just whines and raises useless dead things to mess up stealth attacks. I wish she could windmill from time to time. Or jump rope.

    1. She probably does it when you turn around. Living in a coffin for hundreds of years can do something to the brain. I imagine Serana occasionally breaking out into impromptu GWAHAHAAHA laughter when she talks and grinning maniacally when she touches dead things in places. Actually I don’t really have to imagine it because she’s nuts.
