so your character has a bit of everything - archery, one-handers, magic?

yeah, magic instead of shield with the one handers.

Magic on left hand, sword in the other. Then bow as an alternate that I try to start all encounters with to knock them down before they reach me. If they reach me, they get blasted with magic while i hack away at them with the other hand.

sounds similar to what my character is going to end up as if i pick up archery. what race are you playing? i ALWAYS play dunmer, but they made them so icky this time around (DC said my first char looked like a meth head) so I created an imperial for the first time.

The game is huge - maybe there's still more? I hope there's variety as well. I miss the sand storms from morrowind, though the snow storms in this game are pretty neat too.

all the elves kinda look like methheads

I went with a Breton for the magic boost. Its worth it, I almost never run out of magicka. They are weak on stamina though, so in the beginning i was getting wiped out after one or two swings, but ive since cranked that up on every levelup and its decent now.

One thing I really hated about Oblivion - there was absolutely no reason to travel anywhere by foot. Seems to be better in Skyrim so far.

Ya I loved that one. Although it's not really a "side" quest, you will find out when you get to the next city you have to go to, the one where you talk to jarl. You have to go to that exact place to get a certain stone. But if you picked it up already free quest completion!

My guy is a redguard? I think that's what he is called. Focusing on sword and shield and heavy armor, and a bit of magic, not sure what yet.

and a giant. That was tough.

This is what I do 90% of the time.

I'm a loot hound and love combat. I'm also constantly on the lookout for ore to mine. Right now I am decked out in full Orcish armor, and an orcish mace that I posted a pic of last night in this thread.

There's a LOT of variety, you just have to explore, theres:

Tundras
Glacier
Mountain
Pine forest
Fall season forest
etc.
