Skyrim is the fifth Elder Scrolls game. It is about doing whatever satisfies you, whether it is killing innocents or finishing off roadside bandits. A few ways to level up/ get cool gear is to talk to khajiit vendors. they will always have interesting items from thier travels. Also many cool items can be found through the main quest.(i have some cool blades,and gear from the karthspire) whenever you see a cave/ cavern check it out or at least discover it,and write down on a piece of paper the name of the place,and check it out later. My next piece of advice is every time you see a giant, murder him!, they usually carry a nice amount of gold, and loot their big chest in their camps too, i got a nice enchanted bow from one. This is my best piece of advice always search the room you are in more than once, you may find enchanted weaponry, amazing armor and in select places shouts.look out for Dadric quests such as the "House Of Horrors",I think its called,anyways its in the city of stone. DONT BUY HORSES! horses cost way too much and die too quickly if you want a good horse just follow the Dark Brotherhood. Go into the prisons, prisons always contain evidence chests i got a black soul gem out of one.Finally after you feel like there is not much to do in Skyrim and think you have done every quest.Just go to youtube and type Skyrim Gameplay,by culveyhouse.                                                                                                                                                                                       I hope this helps everyone
