Just looked online at the achievements. Found out that I had beaten the Game. -- Finished the main quest and the Stormcloak vs Imperial Quest.

I'm level 29 with 74 hours played.

What's the point to becoming stronger; Is there one at all?

Do I need to prepare for any huge Thalmor battles?

I'm about level 36 now. I've completed the main quest and the Stormcloak/Imperial quest. I'm also the arch-mage at the college and a few other things. I have a few houses around Skyrim and got married somewhere along the line.

Now I'm just traveling around looking at the map and exploring areas that have a lot of blank spaces (it seems like Skyrim is pretty dense with things to see). So I'm getting a little bored (after a pretty intense initial playing period) and don't play as much anymore. My son has started a character and he's working his way through the game now.

No worries, happens to me too, even though I love these games. You'll find your way back into it eventually.

When investigating the murder in Whiterun, I failed to get the "Strange Amulet" looked at. Now I have a "Strange Amulet" that does nothing stuck in my inventory and cannot get it out. I also have two spheres from the quest where you find the Elder Scroll stuck in my inventory, too. Damn bugs and glitches and shit.

Yeah, I'm stuck carrying around a flute that I happened to find in a cave somewhere before I actually met the person who would have sent me on the quest to recover it. Even though I eventually met that person, I didn't get an option to hand it over. Stupid flute.

press the tilde button to get the console up, type player.dropitem XXXXXX and instead of the Xs put the item code found online and press enter. The item will magically drop in front of you. If you are on a console, not sure how to fix that.

I keep reading that on all sorts of Skyrim websites. Can't do jack crap on the 360, though.

I have the flute AND the mission and I still cant turn the dang thing in...

Also, you can transfer saves between xbox and pc, so give your save to somebody and a list of things to fix, then put it back on your xbox...

*EDIT* link for the how to. http://justpressstart.net/?p=5650.

Does that mean you can crank your weapon and armor stats to ungodly proportions, too? I know the console is a powerful, powerful thing in PC games...

I finally got around to doing the enchanting and alchemy trick on my armor and weapons. Sadly, it seems you can't perpetually increase stuff. It may be the update I have that fixed that prevented it, but it still made for crazy strong armor and weapons. It takes two hits with a daedric sword to kill a giant, and two daedric arrows will kill most dragons. High level magic characters still do a lot of damage for some reason.

The annoying thing now is that with my armor, weapons, and level, any new place I visit has enemies with godlike strength and powers. All the draugr are the super strong death lord ones, all magical characters are masters levels, etc.

Yeah... magic stuff whoops my ass pretty hard. I think I may find three pieces of armor, each one with one of "x% resistance to fire/frost/shock damage". Does "x% resistance to magic" cover all the elements? If so, I'm going to find one piece of armor with it and enchant my Dragonscale armor with it. I'm tired of getting hit with two lightning bolts and having 3 HP left, struggling to open the inventory before I die.

Or find someone with the PC version who will crank up my stats...

Yesterday's loot:

Krosis Mask
Give a 20% bonus to Archery, Alchemy and Lockpicking.
The fooker that drops this popped out of a casket while I was fighting a blood dragon and started hurling fire balls at me.

Mace of Molag Bal
Rather sinister one handed beat-stick that drains 25 stamina and magicka per hit, also steals the soul of an enemy if it dies within 3 seconds.
