Wow!  After reading this I feel like a beginner--I am only running a little over 50 mods on Skyrim.  Guess I need to bet busy and add some more.
If you think that's cool, let me introduce you to EnaiSiaion's other two flagship mods: Ordinator and Thunderchild.

Ordinator is a perk overhaul that not only improves upon the normal perk trees, but also adds some completely new ones befitting your status as THE GODDAMN DRAGONBORN. The Speech Tree? More like the Thu'um Tree! My favorite is the master pickpocket perk called "Dragon's Hoard." It lets you buy a perk point for 50,000 gold anytime you sleep. Then you have Thunderchild, which lets you meditate on words of power that you've learned in order to unlock an "alternate meaning" (read: a new shout). It also gives you the Kyne's Champion bonus, which starts at 0% and powers up shouts by up to 200%. Doing things to please Kyne raises the "Kyne's Champion" bonus, and also has a small chance to give you a free dragon soul.

I also have a completely different mod that lets you convert dragon souls into attributes and perk points. Gotta use them for something after you learn all the shouts, right?

I have the mod that converts dragon souls into perk points.  But not the ordinator--have to look into it.  Thanks.  My fav is still Sophia, the follower.  She is witty and follows me everywhere and never gets lost.

I... am not a fan of Sophia, sorry to say. Her voice acting is worse than all the actors in Oblivion.

I did used to use Inigo, but I've got him on the back burner until he gets dialogue for Dawnguard and Dragonborn. Once you do his quest, you'll get a spell to teleport him to you if he gets lost. He has an interesting backstory, and gets extra conversation dialogue when you both sit down. Literally the only follower I've ever sat down and had an IRL beer with.

Is anyone actually claiming the Steam keys I post here? Should I put them somewhere else?

Many moons ago I tried Inigo.  He was okay--so many moons ago I don't really remember much about him.  I guess I'll have to free him again and take him along.  Funny, isn't it--I love Sophia's voice and her voice acting.  Oblivion--haven't played that in ages and don't remember much of the voice acting.  Maybe I should dust that off for a bit of a spin--maybe.  And I have to admit, for a trio, it is hard to beat Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim.

I'm still not getting skyrim downloaded.  I think it is an Apple fight.  And I don't want to put Windows on my Mac.

I grabbed the key to the Batman game. Don't know about the others.

Send me your Steam ID and I'll send you a friend request. When I get back home (waiting for Hurricane Harvey to pass), we can use the chat and figure things out in real time.

I can't set up an account.  No matter what verification letters or numbers I enter, it won't accept it.

Should I be doing this skyrim entry from a Windows computer, I have a Windows 10 one.  Just don't like it much.  But I can hook it up.

You guys remember kickass pieces of artwork by Jakub Rozalski?  Stuff like this:



Wouldn't it be super awesome to have a game based on that?  Then we got Scythe, a very involved, lengthy board game.  It's alright, not my thing.

My thing is RTS.  Well guess what!  It's being made into a RTS!  Whoohoooo!



This might be the game that fills my Company of Heroes void.

What's the closest game to Civilization 2?  It won't play on Windows 10.  I just want to quietly build a civ, no real-time action.  I'm boring that way.

I will probably never go to a games convention, although I'd like to go to Runefest, and meet others from RuneScape.

Civ V is pretty good.  I understand Civ VI is pretty good, but I haven't played it much.

I'll read up on both.  Thanks.
