Skyrim's Deadly Landscape by Touken2 Skyrim's Deadly Landscape by Touken2
If you understand this comic. Im surprised.

For If you dont i'll explain as quickly and painlessly as possible!

Skyrim is a vast land you travel in well, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim! And in it your always doing quests that cover all over the map. I often get lost and look at my map/journal a whole lot.
I'll mark on my map where I must go and head there, and since Im so noobish and adventureus I dont follow the paths but make my own on horseback and Then there will be (many) times where I am faced with climbing a super steep cliff, cheating my way up but sliding or jumping all over it XD. OR like in this comic, sliding down a mountain to get somewhere!
And the past few times I'll get to the bottom then my horse just takes a small jump off a little bit bigger than average sized rock or hill. Then dies, but it survives a collossal moutain. Then sometimes you die when your horse dies or be like me, how I have very low health well I land. Then a Cave Bear happens to be right next to you. Ahhhh Skyrim....

So I've never played the other Elder Scrolls games and I never plan to. But Skyrim is really fun! I havent played anything with so much oppritunity and freedom, I can literally do whatever the hell I want in the game and It goes along with it! I love u Skyrim, so much XD

So.. this comic stinks and its in black in white.... Well your lucky u got to see it in any colour or at all @_@ It was originally a doodle just for me, then I tried to colour it with... colour-colour not black and white. But ehh too much for me.
I had fun making it and dont diss the way I draw horses, just cant! XD

Oh! any if your not familure with this kind of game, you make your own character in the begining, you choose your name, race, gender then everything is up to you after that.

And that dude in the comic is just me, in the game...
Im a Nord (human), Name is Elden (Idk what it means or anything I just made it up). Made Elden a male, married him to another dude XD an arigonian (lizzard-like human race) he has a sexy voice shut up. And early in the game I contracted the vampire disease... I didnt know what I was doing and i ended up getting it. I know how to cure it now, but I've decided not to. And I eat dead people. ahhh yeahhhhhhh

Also I have tons of Skyrim doodles on paper they look way-way-way....way. Better than this!

Comic by me!

Skyrim belongs to the Nords!..... Um. I mean whatever they came from.

lol When I was walking down a mountain one time, I got to the base, then my horse levitated off the ground a few feet. I moved forward, and promptly died. SKYRIM PHYSICS.
Taina-dOS Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
All my horses died this way. Only Shadowmere resisted more...

I have Oblivion and play it like a boss. Key hint that's helpful: Play the main quest FIRST because then you keep everyone alive whom you want to keep alive, like Baurus and Jaffre. When you take down the Cheydinal Oblivion Gate, go slow and use a bow to kill the enemies so you keep the Count's son alive as well as his friend. It's useful, as you become an honorary Knight of the Thorn and gain the amulet and shit. :) animation is shitty but it's an overall good game.

Can't wait to get my hands on Skyrim with all the addons so I can become a vampire, cause vampires are badass, lol

Why not just become ethereal? 
Touken2 Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Can't really do it on a horse i think. And in the comic its when it happens unexpectedly. When i do jump off cliffs by myself i do use ethereal.
svesamikreteni Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I once jumped with Ethereal... It wore off just before I hit the ground.

Adsullata Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
This happened to me a TON when I had to get to the place Mercer was hiding, stupid thing was, I had Shadowmere who is supposed to be invincible :D certainly stronger than me, anyway - I'll just hop off to look at something and turn around to find a frost troll lying next to him XD
Angelinamay Featured By Owner May 23, 2013
your like me eh?
When i joined the forsworn they attack shadowmere -.-
GabrielCavalcante Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Wait, I'm a bit confused o.o The whole text was ironic or something? DD:

Btw, Bethesda has a reputation with glitchy games xDD I played Morrowind and I can say, hell it's glitchy. Not to mention "Call of Cthulhu" e.e But TES franchise really wins. I could report a lot of Skyrim's glitches (and I did wrote a text as big as yours, but decided to erease everything '-') to you, but nah xDD

And about the travelling thing, remember that there's always a safer shortcut to wherever you wanna go. Don' try going straight to the place. If it's on a mountain, for example, try finding a way up near the place where you fast travelled. And if you spot any ruins or something where bandits or monster couls be, and if you want to beat them, remember to always dismount far from there. And if you're not using any companion, try the mage at the tower near Dawnstar (you need to make a quest for him to follow you). Give him a mask, a bunch of staffs and your life will be a lot easier :3

yeah, this happens to me to. xD Luckily Shadowmere respawns.
Touken2 Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
He does? Wow :D So many ppl says he doesn't. Once I lost poor shadowmere then like in real time months I found him just hanging out near markarth along with other horses that were called "Elden's Horse". Like wow shadowmere way to party without me. Stupid horses ;u;
Akilroth234 Featured By Owner May 8, 2013
Yeah, all you gotta do is go back to the falkreath sanctuary, back where he originally spawned :B

I laughed so hard XD
this happens all the time!
Touken2 Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Especially the evil forsworn murdering newly bought horses.
N-B-R-artwork Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

This happened to me once and only once. I save now before I jump or slide from any cliff.
