Remember how long it took for Aravi to take off?

But she's a cat and you know how long they can take to adopt you. At least that's my story. . . . biggrin.gif

I'd guess about 900 to 1000.

Many of these got no farther than the sewer exit. In fact I've made a few characters just to go through the tutorial dungeon and nothing more. What can I say, I like Oblivion's tutorial dungeon.

I love Oblivion's Tutorial dungeon too. When I figured out that you can save your game at the sewer exit, and start all of your new characters from that point, I did that for a while. Then I went back to going through the tutorial with all my characters, just because I like the dungeon. To me, it was a nice way to get to know a character. Like Acadian said, usually by the end I had a good feel for who they were and what they were like.

Pseron: That almost sounds like a Dark Secret, the way you've admitted that! For the record, I enjoy the Tutorial, too. It's epic and over-the-top, but it's also fun.

Acadian: Thank you. It was a pleasure strolling down Buffy Boulevard and Acadian Avenue as well.

I do recall that it has to be a rainy night for you to create a new character. Perhaps the fact that you are in MD and I am in NV helps account for my low character count? Nah, I'm just mono-game-ous.


Ha ha. You get rain in Las Vegas though, right? But it's probably not too often, huh? If I lived out there, I'd only create like one or 2 every year.

Actually, when I first created Lady Anne (and char. #2) it wasn't raining that night. I'm pretty sure it was raining, a nice soft spring rain, when I created RG2. That's where the habit started. And when I lived in Portland, Oregon years ago, I've got lots of fond memories of playing Tomb Raider games while it's drizzly outside. It drizzles a lot out there, too. wink.gif

Im not so sure about that. True, I kept on going with Lothran and I was happy with him but he actually didnt really speak to me until that day in Bruma when he told me his name. Sometimes the best connections are made a long way down the road, so be careful ditching someone early on wink.gif

@Renee - rollinglaugh.gif

Im glad to see at least a few people liking the Oblivion Tutorial, so many bash it so hard over at Bethsoft and I think its a little bit unfair. Its very well-done imveho smile.gif

mirocu: Aww dang, that's right. Wow, golly, gee, it has been a long time since you've done the starting quest, hasn't it? I tell you what. Here's an idea. It's a rather novel one. What I would do if I were in your shoes is try it all over again. Yep. Try it from scratch. Mmm Hmm. Not with Lothran, oh no. Try it with somebody new. I mean, it would be silly to do it all over again with Lothran, but as you can see, it IS possible to do the Tutorial twice, and live to tell about it.

What? What's that? You're not going to make another character?? Oh no! How can this be???


If we want Mirocu to start a new character, I think we'll have to break into his house and delete his save files, along with any backups. After all, he can't play Oblivion without a character...

Couldn't make Acadian start a new character, not after the fantastic Buffy the Bowgirl series.

But since you don't do anything like that, you're a much better target. tongue.gif

And Acadian has had more than one character. You haven't.

So get started laugh.gif

Much like theres only one copy of The Black Horse Courier per customer, for me its only one character per game and that is final.

Probably about a dozen or so, but really there were only two that I stuck with. The first was a wood elf in light armour who went around punching everything (look, it just happened), who I did the main quests, Knights of the Nine and The Shivering Isles with. As my character couldn't sneak for love nor money and I wanted to try the Dark Brotherhood and Thieves' Guild, I then made a stealth-oriented dark elf and did those questlines. After that, I kind of lost interest in Oblivion and went on to other games.

This. I also feel that if Acadian modified his approach to the game that it would unbalance it, somehow. No, Acadian needs to stick to his usual blueprints.

Aww, thanks for the kind words about Buffy. I love you all for them! Hug_emoticon.gif

mirocu - You're not allowed to take away Buffy's penpal! It's bad enough that you feel the need to play other games. tongue.gif Certainly for you though, Oblivion = Lothran. happy.gif

Yeah, I think Im as much associated with him as you are with Buffy smile.gif I should be anyway. Ive never had a wish to create another character and I wish this witch hunt on me would stop before I get pucking fissed.

Im not. Theyre bringing it up whatever I mention about the game.

This has gone on long enough. One more jump on me making another character and Ill have this f***ing thread locked.

Hey, Mirocu, I find a really interesting way to try and open world RPG like Oblivion or Fallout 3 is to try it with multiple characters to get the best perspective on it all.

Closed, per request of the thread's originator.

Edit: OP reports he has worked out any misunderstandings via PM while the thread was closed and now wishes it reopened. The trouble with written word is that interpreting meaning and intent can sometimes be subjective due to the lack of tone/body language cues that we would have if talking face to face. Since were all friends here, assuming the best of other members and reading their words carefully can be helpful.

This is a fun thread and Im pleased to reopen it. smile.gif
