I'm pretty sure you can find spellbooks, I found one in my inventory that I hadn't noticed right away.

Indeed, spell books are littered throughout the dungeons, along with scrolls. I've found 4 or 5 books and numerous scrolls so far.

Heck, I still don't have a horse. I'd rather run around seeing everything I can, not to mention saving the 1000 gold since I apparently need to buy every spell I see.


This game is amazing though. I just fought off a few wolves (easy) only just as I finished electrocuting the last wolf two dragons dropped onto my head. Needless to say, it did not go well for me. After the reload I decided to jump off the nearby waterfall, only to have it wash my into a small village. Right now I'd say Skyrim is tied with Portal 2 for my GotY vote.

When you accompany a great game with a horrendously poor UI you end up with a very mediocre game.

After horsing with the UI for 2 days, I put the game in it's CD case and gave it to a friend, hope he has better luck with it. I play games to have fun, not becoming angry because some developer can't figure out how to design a UI.

I don't mind so much that the horses are psycho. I do mind that when you're fighting they run away...like far, far away and you're looking around after trying to find the bastard. Plus the animation for it is just so horrible. They should have licensed RDR's horses as they're the best in any game ever. And the whistle to summon you mount rocked too.

Check this out! Somone made Arnie/Conan. Heh

Get to the choppa!

I've noticed the horses tend to travel back to wherever you got (or stole) them from. Early on I had taken one from the Whiterun Stormcloak Camp, and it left during a fight... sure enough I found it walking back to the Stormcloak Camp.

14 hours logged and just now breaking the surface of the main questline.

I'm sure that horse is the final boss fight "Mr Ed." although I've also heard that it's a two part fight cos he leaves on that dragon to go and get his horse armor on. Cheesy

Apparently that horse riding thing is a spoiler.
