Skyrim – Music & Ambience

    1


    Two hundred years have passed since the events of the Oblivion Crisis, and it is now 4E 201. The High King of Skyrim has been killed, and the threat of Civil War looms over the land of Skyrim. One side wishes to secede from the weakened Third Empire, while the other wishes to remain a part of it. To make matters worse, this schism is the final event in a prophecy foretold by the Elder Scrolls that will lead to the return of the dragons under Alduin, the Nordic god of destruction.

    1. Skyrim will go down in history as one of the greatest games ever made. It's open FPS format & huge "go anywhere" maps set the standard of how all FPS games should be. Its scenery is breathtaking, and the music is haunting in a good way. The stories don't feel bland at all, and the combat is great. Say what you like about Bethesda, but they got Skyrim right.

    2. I remember back in the day when I would be so proud of myself by grabbing one daedric piece of armor and now I'm walking around skyrim talking to NPC's, killing enemies, making friends (especially serana), and having lovers (talking to you lydia). I also remember the sad days, where i would get bored and massacre an entire area and feel bad about it. I would always just vibe to the music sometimes, too, And listening to this brings a warmth to my heart that it would inspire me to play again, and again, and again. Skyrim has been really fun, and to all the new players… welcome the the best experience in your life.

    3. I lost Lydia in the mountains while we were collecting flowers and berries to take back to Breezehome..she just vanished! One minute she was there then i turned round and…gone 🙁 I searched all over for many hours, days even! like real days not game days..She also had my massive stash of dragon bones in her pockets, somehow. I tried different saves before that but it didn't work. I carried on with the game with a heavy heart, we were engaged you see, set to marry in Sun's Height. When I was in that area I would always look for her, check behind rocks and search the nearby caves. Nothing. Sometimes after saving a game I would jump off the edge of a big cliff and scream her name as i plummeted to my doom.

      Many followers came and left but none could replace my Lydia.

      Then about 300 hours of game play later I went into Breezehome and she was just sat by the fire, chillin'. She came over to me and said "I have a bad feeling about this."

      Ah Skyrim, so good.

    5. Ralof: Hey, you. You're finally awake. You were trying to cross the border, right? Walked right into that Imperial ambush, same as us, and that thief over there. Lokir: Damn you Stormcloaks. Skyrim was fine until you came along. Empire was nice and lazy. If they hadn't been looking for you, I could've stolen that horse and been half way to Hammerfell. You there. You and me — we should be here. It's these Stormcloaks the Empire wants. Ralof: We're all brothers and sisters in binds now, thief. Imperial Soldier: Shut up back there! [Lokir looks at the gagged man.] Lokir: And what's wrong with him? Ralof: Watch your tongue! You're speaking to Ulfric Stormcloak, the true High King. Lokir: Ulfric? The Jarl of Windhelm? You're the leader of the rebellion. But if they captured you… Oh gods, where are they taking us? Ralof: I don't know where we're going, but Sovngarde awaits. Lokir: No, this can't be happening. This isn't happening. Ralof: Hey, what village are you from, horse thief? Lokir: Why do you care? Ralof: A Nord's last thoughts should be of home. Lokir: Rorikstead. I'm…I'm from Rorikstead. [They approach the village of Helgen. A soldier calls out to the lead wagon.] Imperial Soldier: General Tullius, sir! The headsman is waiting! General Tullius: Good. Let's get this over with. Lokir: Shor, Mara, Dibella, Kynareth, Akatosh. Divines, please help me. Ralof: Look at him, General Tullius the Military Governor. And it looks like the Thalmor are with him. Damn elves. I bet they had something to do with this. This is Helgen. I used to be sweet on a girl from here. Wonder if Vilod is still making that mead with juniper berries mixed in. Funny…when I was a boy, Imperial walls and towers used to make me feel so safe. [A man and son watch the prisoners pull into town.] Haming: Who are they, daddy? Where are they going? Torolf: You need to go inside, little cub. Haming: Why? I want to watch the soldiers. Torolf: Inside the house. Now. [The wagon stops near the chopping block.] Imperial Soldier: Whoa. Lokir: Why are they stopping? Ralof: Why do you think? End of the line.

    6. Скайрим такая игра, что порой просто так останавливаешься посреди маршрута, и начинаешь созерцать природу, слушать этот эмбиент, переходишь на шаг, останавливаешься у ручья… Гениальная с художественной точки зрения игра))
