Skyrim: The Hoarder by Isriana Skyrim: The Hoarder by Isriana
Give me any RPG which involves collecting stuff and I assure you I can fill up the whole inventory during the first five minutes of the gameplay. Seriously, in Skyrim I spend 60% of time encumbered carrying stuff between different merchants. And since my speech skill is nowhere near hundred they keep running out of gold all the time.
What about leaving some of the junk behind, then? At very least some of those linen wraps, enbalming tools and other practically worthless loot you can't even use for anything? Not going to happen. It's all mine! My own! My... precious. :crazy: Yup, not obsessive at all...

I will admit, I half-thought that you were going to have illustrated her placing both bags of loot into a small cupboard.  Must be a magical one... right?  XD

The reason why I downloaded the Battlehorn Castle Upgraded mod to get more space to store my crap. Still feels lonely inside though.

If a Falmer crawled out of that loot pile in the last panel, this would be perfect.

the falmer should hold a gold ring like golem

This is why I always console command my carry weight. I just CANNOT handle not picking up every. single. thing.

This is me in most Elder Scrolls games. (I know, I've already commented on that... about eight pages in. :roll: )
I was, and am, too OCD to leave the junk behind, not even for a second trip, and I used to rely way too heavily on God Mode just to get around the carry weight.
And until I could sell all the extra junk and make and/or repair the handful I wanted to keep, I'd keep getting distracted trying to figure out which weapon had the best stats, which one I could swing around for best results at my current level, and so on.

This time around I finally implemented a couple of mods that are slightly less cheating than God Mode: I created a ring with a ridiculously high constant effect feather enchantment for Morrowind…, I mean to do the same for Oblivion when I get around to playing it again, and for Skyrim....
In Skyrim, I wear the Ring of Godly Unburden wherever I go (a mod I found that adds like 10,000 points to my carry weight) and smelt down all that dishware and other metal junk (via the More Smelting Recipes mod) as soon as I get to a town.
Cuts down on the trips, the junk, and gives me loads of ingots for smithing all at the same time. :D And lets me concentrate on playing the game my way without all of the distr... ooh, shiny!

And speaking of being too OCD to leave anything behind, thanks to using that Ring of Godly Unburden, I found out just how much I've been relying on God Mode... when I kept getting my butt handed to me half a dozen times in a fight against the same three bandits because I insisted on poking around in their hideout. ^^;

Now if I could just get my homes organized. That's going to have to wait until I've finished building them, though; I have very specific plans for each of the Hearthfire homes, and the type of loot should reflect that... not to mention who I pick as steward for each one.

I had to implement a strict rule for my looting in Skyrim. 5 gold for each point of weight. Has saved me many hours of backbreaking hoarding early-game.

That's why you should have a horse at all times!
If you're riding a horse you can still travel, even if you are over encumbered.

That's how my room in Mages Guild in Morrowind looked like. Tonnes of weapons on the bed, tonnes of armour and clothes on the floor, hundreds of dwarven coins and artifacts on the drawer. And it really felt like home :-)

That was me in my first playthrough, I got myself in control at the second to things which are actually worth much

Why is it that Bethesda games turn people into craven, obsessive, money-driven hoarders?
Anyway, I've gotta go find some more merchants. I've just bankrupt the entirety of Whiterun.
IceStormy Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014
I don't carry much anymore when I watch YouTube telling me what weapons an armor, books, crap I really need.
But damn that  dragon bones and scales...
Isriana Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, I usually look at weight/value ratio more these days - so unless the item is made of valuable material and/or includes enchantments I tend to leave it behind (especially heavy stuff).

Oh cool, I was wondering where that apple went. XD
Mulunia Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2014
I'm like that, but with potions. The stores keep running out of money to buy them from me, so I wind up storing some. Sweating a little... 
AerynKelly13 Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
There's an add on for that... Rich Merchants. I hope you've gotten it in the intervening two years, lol!

There was never a point in collecting or crafting glass armour because I couldn't sell even one piece to the merchants!

Thankfully, there are mods that will actually let you do something with some of that useless crap.  Like smelting them, for instance.

Wow... and I thought I was obsessive with collecting stuff... x'D
But Linen Wraps? Ruined books? I'd never ever consider taking THOSE things with me. To me, they're literally part of the environment in dungeons, nothing I would ever take with me. x'D
AliasAA23 Featured By Owner May 10, 2014
Ha ha I do that too, but I use a bag of carrying mod ;)

I spent an hour to an hour-and-a-half every single time I sat down to play just selling all my shit and then going out in the back to Whiterun's forge to make a bunch more shit and then sell all that shit as well.
Well, if there's on thing that we can all agree on about RPGs: they all turn all of us into kleptomaniacs.
