Skyrim: Main Quest Fail by Isriana Skyrim: Main Quest Fail by Isriana
This is pretty much how it went for me. ^^; When I crawled out of that dungeon I was still so dazzled by the amazing graphics I couldn't help but run around goggling at everything. And then the fox arrived and turned me into Alice (what can I say? I happen to have a thing for foxes). I just ran after him without any idea which way I was going - well, at least until I crashed right into a camp full of angry bandits and lost track of him... This game is too awesome. It took me nearly 30 hours after leaving Helgen before I finally decided that it might be appropriate to inform Jarl of Whiterun that there was a dragon on loose... :XD:
I know I have seen "and x was never heard of again" at least couple of times somewhere but I couldn't help but making my own version. So bear with me. :D

holy shit that was the same thing I did when I first play the game, I was like ooh deers, Ima do some hunting. then my hunting lead me toward a group of bandit whom I mistaken for villagers.

XD I love your comics. this was actually my second attempt at playing the game-- but in my last one, I got stuck in Sovenguard, so I tried joining the Stormcloaks. I couldn't care less, so I chased foxes until I ran into a bear and died. ^-^ Cheery!

OMIGOSH THE SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME! I got out of Helgen and IMMEDIATELY started chasing a bunny. XD I was killed by orcs soon after. :P After that, I decided to get serious and look for Riverwood... but I ended up getting lost 'cause I didn't know I had a map, and wandered around in Falkreath for about a quarter of an hour before I realized it wasn't the town I was looking for. :P

Well, he DOES suggest that you split up...

...only to continue having a conversation with you if you keep walking with him.

I've done the exact same thing with the fox.  Not that early in, but I have been on my way to a different location for a quest and then got side tracked because CUTE FOX, MUST FOLLOW.

So did I, but I fell victim to a Spriggan minutes later and thus rejoined the main quest.

Yeah and that's why I never even did the main quest. Mainly for Rp reasons, because I don't have a dragon born character yet. I just have normal characters running around Skyrim; getting into all sorts of shenanigans.

Also love your art.

I just sat there and stared at the pretty bugs and then I followed a goat towards the camp of bandits, and like it said, the main quest was never heard from again XD
godzephose Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013

Skyrim is doomed.

Sadly, it still has better chance with her than with my other Skyrim characters... :XD:
tsureboru Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yeah. I usually just go through the main quest until I get my first word. Then it's sayonara to the main quest!
invislerblack Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013

cause well... all those dragons would just interupt with the stealing, but no main storyline, no dragons... SIMPLE SOLUTION

Oddly, when playing my Xbox, First time playing Elder Scrolls games. And that was Skyrim. Before going out of the cave, funny thing is....I got lost, and I was close to the exit too? lol. I went thru a hole.... :P And got out.... So I have no clue. Got lost.
WarrioressGirl19 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've played many times, and I still haven't done the Companions or the main quest yet... there's too many other interesting things to do, like stealing and massacring. Nice job on the scenery! :happybounce: 
snuffleseleven Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2013
When I started my campaign in Skyrim, I didn't actually realize that you wouldn't get randomly damaged from the Dragon. So when the two (the Imperial and the Rebel) were having their conversation that showed you what decision you had (who to go with), I didn't listen. I was busy taking cover from the Dragon. XD So I just ran after the Imperial blindly, not realizing who I'd gone with.
liilly1504 Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Some of my characters are a level 19 or 20 and still havent done the main wuests :) lol

Oops, I mean quests...BLAH
CoreyAMurray Featured By Owner May 4, 2013
See, when I started playing Skyrim, I focused on the main quest first, side quests afterwards.

the first thing i did when i got out of that cave was walk right off the edge of a cliff while walking back words trying to get a better view of everything. Ya, not my brightest moment.

Poor Ralof. Lol I usually wander off too, but you have to do a bit of the main so I can shout everyone off....everything...

I haven't gone to Bleak Falls Barrow yet. And it's been 60 hours since I started the game!
Prakorimas Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Sweet! :D :D :D :D

That's precise view of losing yourself in a world of Skyrim!

I was able to finish Main Quest only twice. While the rest of the time kept exploring surroundings...
