Oblivion: Brief Moment Of Freedom by Isriana Oblivion: Brief Moment Of Freedom by Isriana
...and that pretty much sums up my first hours in Oblivion. ^^; Note to self: when you see guards do not approach - and definitely don't go asking them directions when you carry stolen goods with you.

So yeah, that can happen if you're used to Skyrim guards who have a bit less psychic abilities than their Cyrodilic equivalents. As you see, Brenna's thieving career didn't quite get the stellar beginning I had hoped for... In all honesty, if I had my very own Oblivion theme song this would be it: [link] So. Many. Sentences. Served.
Ah, well. At least I'm having fun... :XD:

Why does every TES game has to start with prison thing! 
I'm starting to think they have huge fetish for prisons.

My Argonian Killroy started by robbing the entire Imperial City clean. On his way out he felt his stomach grumble. Despite the large bag of coins dangling from his belt, Killroy decided that food is always better when it's free. A few market-stands later, he was enjoying a nice, fat pear. In his haste to finish the first food he'd had since prison, he started to choke on the seeds. A passing guard noticed and gave him a helpful back blow.
"Are you alright, citizen?"
"*gasp* *gasp* ...yeah. Thanks for that."
"No trouble at all, no trou--hey, isn't that Amantius Allectus's diary?"
"Uhhh..."
A few passing city-folk took notice and started to chime in.
"That ring belongs to my husband!"
"That's my sister's broach!"
"Those are MY vials of blood!"
*everyone stares at Seridur*
"...er, I mean, I found them in Roland Jenseric's house! As part of an investigation!"

My first Oblivion character was an Argonian, too!

He took a visit to Skingrad, and decided he wanted to be a bird. So he jumped off of a bridge, and saved midair. That is the only save I have of that character.

Still, that is funny. Very much so.

My first Oblivion character was also Argonian. I stole a horse, killed like, 3 guards, and fled to the Shivering Isles until I could hoister up enough money to pay my fees. I basically gave up after awhile and gave in to my fate of insanity, then I started a new game as a Khajiit.

However, in both games I think they are psychic enough to know a murder occured.

Really, the guards of the Elder Scrolls deserve praise. Sure, they comlain and bitch about everything... but a single guard will still charge Alduin himself if the bugger arrives, and each guard has the detective skills of Sherlock Holmes, being able to see if you stole something across the province.

I had the exact same reaction as Brenna in panel 3 when I started Oblivion a couple of weeks ago :3

I also tried to come back to jail as a visitor to try and taunt that damned dunmer but, sadly, I couldn't find his cell :(

And when I started playing as a mage, I also discovered that, apparently, cyrodiilic jails have magical bars that prevent fireballs to get through...

The dunmer is in prison, you can only visit the jail legally. *Hand sneaks into jailor's pocket* But maybe I'll pay him a visit, anyway!

Omg, dude, I had the same problem when I first got into Oblivion. They took all my money and when I went to go rob people to get more money, they would just throw me in jail again T_T I was just trying to get enough coins to pay for a room at the inn! I needed to level up!
So I was a hobo for the first few hours of the game. I'm glad I'm not the only one who had this stuff happen to me.
