    In a giant sandbox, you absolutely need fast-travel. One of the things I absolutely hated about Morrowind was no fast-travel. However, it needs to be implemented much more creatively. For instance, if it were a sci-fi game they could create a portable device which allows the character to fast-travel and they could even build that into the narrative. Also, maybe fast-travelling enables certain events that can only be activated when you fast-travel -- sorta the opposite of a random on-foot encounter.

    It should be a choice, not taken out!

    If you're being tempted by it, it's because you find it a preferable option at the time. ^.^;

    If you really want to travel the mundane trek over and over and over again between towns, then you can still do that... but really, it gets old after you've travelled across the same section of land fifty times previously because of all the fetch quests!

    Even in Morrowind, I ended up using console commands to teleport to towns, because loading up the game, and spending 20 minutes just to walk along a linear path getting attacked by cliff racers every fifteen seconds wasn't fun at all!

    It should certainly be an option, it's a damn sight better to have and not need than to need and not have! I quite like cross-country jaunts once in a while, but for menial tasks I'd rather not have to track across the entire map to go and fetch something for someone.

    Does anyone know if Shadowmere regenerates? I went into the shrine near Dawnstar to deactivate the nightmare thing (I'm not a hardcore player, ok? :p:) ... and came out to find that Shadowmere had been killed by the bears that attacked (I was a coward and hid in the shrine, I assumed Shadowmere would stop trying to defend my honour at this point.) :sad:

    I carried on playing, but it just doesn't feel the same. I haven't done that much more since, so I could reload a save before that point, be brave and defeat the bears first and not lose much progress, but that's obviously pointless if Shadowmere'll come back anyway.

    There should be a console command for PC players.... Check the UESP.

    I came across some hunters north of Riften, bathing in the water. It was so random, and I was being chased by a bear at the time. They just continued soaking up the beautiful weather while watching me get slaughtered.

    Haha, one guy's clothes were in the water right next to him :P

    Have you encountered a ghostly figure who roams the roads? It sort of looks like the forlorn watchman from Oblivion, it's either a horse, or a guy on a horse. It's quite strange.

    No... There is one? I'm going to search for him later

    I always seem to run into the lying khajiit

    Just this second ago I found him again, and I followed him. He led me to a grave yard. The figure on the horse didn't have a head, so I thought it was some sort of reference to the Sleepy Hollow. It also had an axe, and by one of the graves is an axe.

    This is creepy.

    I'm an Altmer. I've gone for destruction, healing, conjuration and enchanting. It's so fun, I'm playing on expert and I enjoy zapping everyone in one hit

    I suggest saving regularly because you can die easily when you have no armour. When you have a bunch of items with enchanted powers on, disenchant them and put, say, regenerate magicka 20% faster, on as much as possible. You don't really need robes to be a powerful mage.
