The Elder Scrolls V:Skyrim

Character customization

At the beginning of the game, you get to customize your character.After choosing one of the ten racial options, the following aspects can be customized: Sex, skin tone, and body shape. Weight just affects how bulky the character model looks. An underlying complexion for the face; whether to add dirt and in what color and density; war paint, and its color; and battle scars.



Dragons in Skyrim are a formidable opponent if you don’t know how to defeat them. The easiest way to defeat a dragon is once it lands, hit it a couple of times, then stun with the Unrelenting force shout and swing away. The other way is to shoot its wings and when it lands it will fall over then. you can take a good chunk out of its health. The dragon souls are the only ways to unlock the shouts. 



The spiders in Skyrim are massive. They spit poison at you blurring your vision.They can overwhelm you quickly, so kill them fast. When you kill them you can get frostbite poison. This can be used to make your weapons a little bit stronger.



Miraak can be quite annoying and he can steal dragons’ souls. He also rides a dragon when you first meet him. He uses one of the shouts called dragon’s aspect. Using 1 word of power makes your arms glow and gives you strength. Using 2 words of power your characters arms and torso glows. Using all three words of power your character’s whole body glows. 



Everyone has heard the “Fus-Roh-Dah” sound effect from skyrim. There are loads of shouts in the game. Like “Marked for Death” which is skyrim’s strongest offensive shout. This shout applies a minute-long debuff that reduces 4,500 armor and deals 180 damage for its duration. The whirlwind sprint shout makes you dash really fast and this can be used to dodge stuff in dungeons and in fights against giants.
