Skyrim continues to surprise and delight. Today I have delved into the depths of an ancient tomb to unravel the mystery of a ghost which appeared late at night in a small village; cut down a small enclave of vampires who were hiding themselves in a mountain cave; and climbed the “7,000 steps” to the peak of The Throat of the World (I didn’t count them, but there were certainly a lot, also trolls). The view is nice from up here. A bit cold, though.

What’s been excellent so far is the variety in the dungeons. Some cave systems are small and pokey, others have large, open areas. The aforementioned tomb was stuffed with a variety of creative traps, and smacking a car-sized spider off the edge of a cliff was hugely satisfying.

Basically, it’s awesome.
