Ah, that feel when you're fighting a necromancer and he resurrects two draugr who immediately start fighting him while you can barely shoot your crossbow for laughing.

So! Murderface decided that the house in Whiterun wasn't good enough almost immediately after buying it, and thus decided he needed to purchase land and build one. There is as of yet no mod on the PS4 (and perhaps not on any other platform, but I haven't looked) that allows you to rent out houses you are not living in for gold, which I think should be a priority for modbuilders, so it's just sitting there.

But that meant when the jarl of Falkreath summoned him to run a trivial errand, he did so because once you make nice to the Jarl he lets you buy land.

...that absolutely nobody has is: are Murderface's facial decorations paint or tats? You see, in the Skyrim character creator, the various designs you can apply to character's faces are called "war paint," but...

In lieu of an adventure writeup, because I'm at a point in the game where I'm trying to min/max all of Murderface's perks and equipment which leads less to hilarious adventure and more to picking quests because of the loot or XP they'll bring, here's a bunch of photos he's taken and commentary.

Well, maybe a story or two. And not that many selfies.

I said I wouldn’t be writing every session up, and I won’t be, but you get this session written up because Murderface McKenzie 2.0 accidentally broke Skyrim and it was hilarious. Well, to me, at least.

45 seconds, you don't need to know Skyrim to know what's going on. All you need to know is that Murderface McKenzie has a perk that keeps him from setting off floor traps, but the same cannot be said for his companion.

So my new Skyrim runthrough with a lady orc tank (named Jehane d'Arc I cannot believe it didn't occur to me to call her Jehane d'Orc) was kind of boring because I couldn't really get into my character and give her a guiding impulse.

So I did it...

Skyrim!

So the remastered version of Skyrim is now out on the PS4. We bought it yesterday and let it download and install last night so I could play it today. It's also out on the PC, for free if you bought all the DLC previously, and Toby discovered it unlocked early so he started his FOURTH run. This time his character is specializing in one-handed weapons, but I predict she's going to end up a sneaky character doing one-handed because he always goes sneaky.

Anyway, I can't port my PS3 saves over, so it's bye-bye Murderface, alas. But given that I hadn't been playing him much because almost every time he went out he was attacked by an ancient dragon that was above his pay grade that killed him horribly, perhaps not much of a loss. Ah well.

The big question now is: what sort of character am I going to build for my new run? I shall not be writing it up because it was getting rather tedious to make notes while I was playing, so you're all spared that (unless something particularly funny happens). But do I go really sneaky, or go full tank? Do I play a paladin or an ass? Murderface's twin brother or someone completely opposite him? Let me know your opinions!

(Also I stopped playing Skyrim quite so much because I started a replay of Kingdom Hearts II in preparation for the release of KHIII, but hey.)

I’m going to do something different for this look into Murderface’s life, by which I mean skipping ahead a couple of play sessions because I wanted to get this down while this extremely frustrating and hideously glitchy play session was still bright in my head.

Bonus: there are videos! Not-so-bonus: they’re filmed with my phone because I’m stuck on the PS3. FINGERS CROSSED I can port a PS3 save to the PS4 when the remastered version comes out, but I’m not holding my breath.

Anyway! Last time Murderface got married to the beauteous Sylgja because she didn’t run screaming from him at first sight, didn’t actively insult him, and seemed happy in his presence, which pretty much ruled out most of the rest of Skyrim’s population. Marriages have been made on worse grounds before. They’ve been settling in together, with a few hiccups here and there, until this, their first enormous challenge as a couple.

If you would like a portrait that perfectly encapsulates Murderface McKenzie’s (and my) rageface during this whole shebang, you can do no better than have a look at @ninjamonkeystudios’ Murderface marker portrait below the cut/jump/what-have-you:

So, in our last session (which was actually part 1 of a long session I did one weekend), Murderface killed him a dragon, discovered he was the prophesied Dragonborn (whatever that was), learned to Shout, got handed YET ANOTHER stupid quest, and decided to throw it all in and get married.

But first!
