Have got a hunch that however it works out, it's going to be a hostile fire mage Drelas vs. an Ancient Dragon vs. me and my Storm Atronarch + Odaviing.
LOL, I wandered into Drelas' Cottage at level 2 or so and had to run away really fast. I haven't been back, since I figured he might be part of a quest or something. I wonder what his problem is, anyway. Do you have Spellbreaker? That's pretty good for blocking magical attacks. Sneaking with a dagger is always good, too.

I got Odaviing to fight a group of mammoths and giants and they beat him! He went into the staggering animation that followers do when they're almost dead and the giants and mammoths came and killed me. They sent me into orbit, which is always hilarious.

Nice to know that it's not just me. Odaviing blows.

The wikis don't say that there's anything involved with Drelas, he's just pissy. Which is nice, I guess- surely there would be a lot of people just running a nice cottage and growing herbs out there.

Question for the more experienced: I lost my companion (I forgot her name, but the one you get in Whiterun once you become a Thane). We were fighting giants and she got catapulted, never appeared again. Is there a way I can find her?

If she returned "home", she should be in your house in Whiterun. If you don't have the house there yet, she should be in the big hall there (Dragonsreach? Can't remember if that's the name or not). If she's not in either of those places, her lifeless corpse is probably somewhere in Skyrim.

I think it's probably the latter then. I returned to the hall and she wasn't there, and I don't have a house yet. I was fighting the giants while standing in a bunch of rocks, so maybe she's stuck there? I'll have to go back and check.

Typically fast travel will warp them to where you are, unless you asked her to stay there. Allowing a few days of in game time (you could wait for 96 hours or something in game) will send them back to their "home" if they're waiting.

If the giants launched her into space, then she's dead. Are you wanting to find her so you can take her stuff? I would think that what goes up must come down, so she's probably out there somewhere.

Nope, looked everywhere but she wasn't there or in Dragonsreach. Very strage, she just vanished. It's not a big deal, I just wanted to get a companion back, but I guess I need to find a new one.

Certain companions are indefinitely invincible. Mjoll could be launched high into the sky (it happened all the time). Also, most of the werewolf fellows were all pretty invincible. But yeah, I lost the companion from Whiterun. She mysteriously died, I don't know when or where. She was working as a pack rat so I lost some valuables.

Lydia! Her name is Lydia!

Started a new character (Altmer mage Esteban!), and pretty much had to force myself to follow the Imperial path at Helgen. It's awfully hard to not be bitter that the Empire was ready to execute you, and "gosh I wish we didn't have torture chambers" is not a convincing line to persuade me of Helgar's righteousness. Although I suppose Stormcloak sympathizers get the counterpoint later on in the story once they experience the racism at Windhelm.

I started off thinking I would be a Stormcloak, even killed a few imperials guarding Stormcloak prisoners, but in the end I found the views of the Stormcloaks much more distasteful than the Imperials who seemed to have better ideas on governance than most.

I love the way they are advancing the timeline, as Skyrim is obviously set during the sort of twilight years of the empire (the fall the Roman empire as such). The next game I guess will be probably something to do with the Thalmer.

That said they've indicated that the expansion packs for Skyrim are going to be huge, with some indication they are looking at integrating Morrowind and Cyrodil provinces which you can see off in the distance in the game.

there's some pretty cool efforts out there in the Steam Workshop/Skyrim Nexus

one of the best ones is an attempt to put the cities into the overworld; basically you just walk up and open the door and there you are.

and this one

Same here, I think I'm going to join the Imperial Legion instead of the Stormcloaks. I got to thinking that since my character is an Argonian, that would make more sense. I can't really imagine an Argonian wanting to help a Nordic rebellion, or even being accepted by them in the first place. In my next game I'm going to be something else and join the Stormcloaks. I also want to try being a magic-based character, since I've never really done that before in an Elder Scrolls game.

It would be great if they incorporated the Morrowind mainland in an expansion pack, especially since they only included the island of Vvardenfell in the game Morrowind. That part of the world can't really be made into its own game since there's already been a game set in that province, so this is really their best opportunity for that. I hope there are cliff racers!

Doing the mage thing in a new file. Man, loading times are fast! I wonder how much of that is starting a new game from scratch with patch 1.4 and how much is all the objects I've never seen that the game doesn't have to think about.

Starting over also really illustrates how freaking slow the game's pace gets by 150+ hours in. Here, every Companion and Bounty quest is based out of Whiterun and has me running around those plains, so there's a pretty fast, steady drip of level gaining and perk skills to feed off of. I'm at Expert difficulty and it's been fairly breezy so far now that I know not to mess around with Lockpicking or Alchemy.

I've been wanting to do the full mage thing as well. My argonian, Kermit, is mainly an arrow guy.. but I've been wanting to up his hack 'n slash abilities as well. I haven't really done any duel wielding, except with magic. So there's another thing. And I still completely suck with two handed weapons. They are so damned slow! I was having a ton of glitches on this game (this is my second file) but they all just seemed to right themselves about a week ago.. something I'm very happy about. Lydia, however, never did return and I have no idea where her stash filled body is. Oh well. Love playing as an Argonian.. being able to go underwater and stay there is pretty sweet.
