 I just started the most most crazy fun of Skyrim ever.  After installing it on my pc and adding a ton of mods for visuals and gameplay enhancement and plugging in my Xbox360 controller, Skyrim is an incredibly dangerous place to walk around and my sneak skill, I'm a dark elf Necromancer, is climbing quickly.  I have one mod that lets you choose a different opening scenario as an alternative to the 20 minute Helgan tutorial mode intro.  But my first quest took my about five hours to complete because I went with the scenario in which I was a necromancer in a secret location.  When you're level one and all you have are a couple of level one destruction spells and a Dwarven dagger, sneaking around Blackreach which is infested with all manner of Falmer, Dwarven contstructs, sprites and giants is not exactly an ideal situation.  But it was an incredibly cool change from just walking into something and hacking at it with my sword which is my usual inelegant play style.  

So once I get out of Blackreach, I have to go *really* far to my next location and there's not a lot of stuff along the way, but thanks to two other mods which add an actual civil war raging across the land and more random region appropriate creature encounters, I was able to witness at least three skirmishes, a herd of deer that all but trampled me as they ran from wolves and a coven of black mages destroying everyone in their territory that they didn't think should be there.  It's insane and I'm loving every minute of it.  I'll probably post screens at some point.  In the meantime, under the cut, you'll find my current mod list.  Mods without links, I just got tired of hunting links, but they're easy enough to find.
