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 am so glad that I am not the only loot whore around here. All of my homes in Skyrim look like they should be in an episode of Horders. I can't help but take or steal anything that isn't nailed down. I have one room in Proudspire Manor that is full of cabbage, sweetrolls, and cheese. It is practically a shrine to Shegorath!

It's worse when you have multiple houses and you realize you left something important somewhere and you really need it to help you in a dungeon and you spend close to an hour looking through every chest and wardrobe in every house before you remember you gave it to your follower...that left your service.

I didn't think that you could give followers items that are necessary for quests. I could have like, 20 followers because of all the stuff I do, but I hate working with other people, so yeah. I only had a follower the one time, and after I lost the important item, I basically just went lone wolf and struggled with all of the loot.

For me it was an armor piece. I had a high level shield and I didn't feel like buying the stuff to make a new one. And red eagle's sword. I finished the quest, but I guess there was a glitch because when I read the book again, it put up the quest. Again.  So I had to hunt for the sword. In the end I don't think I even needed it but it was awhile ago so not 100% sure what happened. So much to do in Skyrim, so little time.

I agree with that. I remember with that sword for my second Khajit Dovakhiin, I was running all over Skyrim looking in all of my houses for it, because that was where I last remember placing it, and it turns out that that was what I gave to my follower who left my services during the Civil War.

Yeah, after a certain point there really is no such thing as "treasure." You carry around your most effective weapons with you and the shop keepers run out of gold way too easily. Unless you feel like fast traveling half way across the map just to sell something, you have no choice but to store it all.

I already have modded Daedra chainmail www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/…? sets on all my female mannequins also added a mod where you get mannequins so have rouhly 100 in my house. But I am seriously considering downloading a Castle mod to get more space and 50 mannequins on each side with daedra armor would look so cool :))))

I'd tell you the name of one but since i play on xbox and still genuinely enjoy vanilla Skyrim- a testament to Bethesda- but I don't. I only know of good mods because I watch MxR review them every Sunday. I wish I had a good computer because all I would do is get graphical mods and slight armor change mods like for the dark brotherhood or a weapon mod.

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 www.youtube.com/watch?v=x1ssnG…, 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 :-)

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.

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).
