It's nice because you have the fortified cities, the cities, and the little towns.

Windhelm is the exception. I hate that place. I used to get Windhelm, Whiterush, and Winterhold confused but now I only get Windhelm and Winterhold confused.

I visited Solitude and then visited Windhelm and my impressions of each city is what made my opinion between the sides.

I assume the decision was clear.

A Dark Brotherhood assassin tried to kill me. They were carrying a contract from someone named Astrid who wants me dead. I don't remember who that is or what I did to them. It was funny, because the assassin was trying to slowly sneak up on me in the middle of a road in broad daylight while I was looking right at them. I thought, what is this person doing...?

Interesting. I didn't know there were multiple ways to start The Dark Brotherhood quests.

I assume if you killed him you're going to get an invite.

I was only aware of the normal method. I spent a long time dicking around before finally starting the Dark Brotherhood quest, so I ended up accruing about 5 Dark Brotherhood Assassin's Notes from their laughable corpses. Certainly did make me feel like a bad ass, though.

One of my favorite subtle moments so far was having a Thief pop out of the bushes and hold me at knifepoint, before realizing I was part of the Guild and amiably walking away.

I like to imagine I have firm anti-daedra principles, so I've been staring at the Oghma Infinium for awhile and not using it. But I'm reaching the point where I have to start grinding other skills in order to keep accumulating perks, so I might as well read the damn thing and, I dunno, pee on Hermaus Mora's statue or something.

Upon further reading it sounds like you pretty much have the option to join or hunt/destroy the Dark Brotherhood.

I can tell you one thing... joining them is both more fun and achievement based.

But apparently there are several ways to engage in their joining.

I'll probably join them eventually, but I'm sure I'll feel guilty about it. I read that
 
Shadowmere
is not invincible like in Oblivion, so that's a bummer. I don't like having things follow me around unless they're invincible, because they're just gonna die eventually, anyway.

Also, I read that
 
There's a dragon in Blackreach, but it only shows up if you use Unrelenting Force at the glowing yellow orb in there. I never would have figured that out on my own! I usually don't mind spoilers like that. So I'm definitely going back there to do that and look for more Crimson Nirnroots.

I don't mind spoilers like that, either.

As for Shadowmere, his HP is ridiculously high. For all intents and purposes, unless you're trying to kill him, he will never die.

Oh OK, that's good to know.

I'm almost done with the main quest. The Wiki says that the last part is difficult because it's one of those situations where you're in a certain place and can't leave until you finish it. Should I invest in a ton of health potions first or just go for it?

Here's the Wiki if anyone needs it; it's very informative about all of the Elder Scrolls games:

This is what I'll be doing when I'm old, minus the swearing.

Also, am I the only one that plays this almost exclusively in 3rd person?

eww no way. Sometimes I run in third person, but other than that there's no way I could play the game so. I do too many ranged attacks, which have an awful feel for them in 3rd person.

Third person ruins the immersion and combat is too difficult and awkward that way, as is talking to people, picking up small objects... Actually, everything. I tried it when I first played Morrowind and stopped after I tried to hack at enemies and realized I was aiming straight down at the ground (although I'm sure Skyrim's third person is way better than Morrowind's).
