Good job Crabbcakes and Geo. Good to hear someone was up to represent the primal folks on new year.
I'm so sorry for your loss . I hope it comes home to you!
What kind of build do you play? I've played through entirely once, as a sneaky archer. I changed my mind partway through and focused on one-handed and smithing abilities, after starting off thinking I'd be an alchemist. I found alchemy very unfulfilling. I'm replaying now with a caster, focusing on destruction, conjuration, and one-handed weapons, so I cast & strike (and summon blades). I got killed a lot early on, but I'm doing well now. I'm focusing mostly on side quests so I can take care of some things before I progress the main quest, which means I'm nearly level 30 and still no dragons. =P

Ack, I should've known my edit wouldn't go through before you responded. Scroll up!
I was on the last quest in the dark brotherhood, a few from the end of the theives, finished a ton of other quest chains and in a moment of tiredness saved over him with my level 10 warrior. Needless to say I cursed alot and didn't play for a few months as starting over seemed like too much work. Yesterday I decided to give it another try and boom, missing.
Re: house - Oh, good call, I forgot about that. I could use a place to stash my horde. I am archmage, but I don't like making a mess of my room at the College. The archery you just described is how I played Oblivion. Archery gets to be absurdly overpowered.
First time, I got up to (over?) level 60. I had every damn house possible. I completed all the achievements that Steam lists except for the daedric artifacts (messed up and missed one), which meant I completed all the "main" side quests (Brotherhood, Thieves, mages, Companions etc.) too. Now I've got more because of the expansions. I am building up werewolf perks now, then will ditch it to be a vampire lord. I play on PC and install via Steam because then there are no discs or keys to keep track of. It's all tied to your account.
I lent my Fallout 3 disc to someone once and they lost it. I ended up re-buying it years later because it was worth it. I didn't mind starting over because I'd mostly forgotten everything. Before I started playing Skyrim again in December, it'd been maybe 8+ months since I'd last played, so it's all fresh.
