  • Oblivion! I remember that game. I customized a rogue-mage, which I quickly discovered meant that I wasn’t strong enough to fight well, and didn’t have enough mana to cast well either. So, my strategy became hiding in the dark, casting Chameleon, and shooting my enemies in the back with an arrow. I played through the whole game doing that, and eventually crafted the ultimate item: a suit of enchanted armour that gave you giant magical stealth bonuses, so you could just keep shooting them in the back. And if things went bad, I’d run away, and hide around a corner. Or summon a sacrificial monster to distract them.

    Truly, the stuff heroes are made of.
