How bloody amazing is this game? I just decided to roam about a bit before going back to turn in a quest at Solitude and I'm now closer to Markath than Solitude.
Found this keep (Harmugstahl) and was quite creepy inside - it's always creepier when you haven't been sent there and you're just exploring, isn't it? Some mage was experimenting on frostbite spiders. *shudder*
And then after finishing that and coming out, I spotted some ruins, not marked on the map and ran over to them. There was a book called Withershins on it and it's a really funny read.
Only problem is, when I'm out exploring, there's map markers in all directions and I obviously can't go in every direction at once so there's loads I've missed. How I'm going to get them all, I have no idea.
Seriously doubting my vote for Arkham City in the BAFTA Game award, now.
