On Skyrim DLC

Joystiq follows the VGA GotY win for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim by asking Bethesda's Todd Howard about plans for DLC and other post-release support. He explains, without offering too much detail:
Howard couldn't yet share plans for DLC, but he says it will be focused on "ways to make the game better, not just have more, because the game is so big. So we're going through ideas right now, and processing everything people are doing in the game, and trying to think of ways that we can improve it." There will be multiple releases (as with Bethesda's past games), but Howard says they "don't have a timetable. They won't be quick, and they'll have a lot of meat on them."

Exactly. Turning down quests that conflict with his moral compass, not stealing anything, helping those first who need help more, etc. Sort of trying to play it like Huma (or a Knight of Solamnia) type of thing. It's much more fun - for me at any rate.

Again, being an archer thief doesn't prevent you from having a moral compass. Ever heard of Robin Hood? You can steal from those who deserve to be stolen from and help those that deserve to be helped. You can still turn down quests that conflict with your morals too.

Except Robin Hood was a terrorist. Besides, unfortunately most of Skyrim's quests don't have really much in the way of moral choices anyway, it's pretty much you do it or you don't. There are plenty of evil quests where I'd like the option to strike down or turn in said evil-doer. Hell, most of them you can't even refuse once you start talking to the NPC. I'm definitely going to be mucking around with this stuff when the editor comes out.
