WHY WON'T MY BOSMER EAT THOSE SHE KILLS?! And marry Elrindir in the Drunken Huntsman?
And I do like that nice mod that gave me something more wood-person appropriate for my rangery self...
Story time! So here I was, looking for a mammoth tusk, and not using the interwebs to find where one might be lying about (and this is early in the game, of course, so still learning the stuffs). I was going to hunt me one and try to be slick around those giants. Anywho, so here I was eyeballing a Giant camp to see if any mammoths might be near by. I left my companion and horse some yards away to avoid them ruining my sneaking about.
So I'm not seeing any mammoths and I'm trying to decide if I want to even attempt to kite this lone giant... and my horse runs by. "WTF?" I say out loud, and then start to panic as the giant starts to run in the same general direction - horses are expensive, man! What the hell, horse, what is your problem? But then I see him peel off elsewhere and in comes this massive dragon, trying to land on said giant. Giant makes like a tree and leaves.
Of course Lydia then comes running in yelling her warcries, so we get ourselves a nice epic dragon fight. I then ransack the giant's camp (mm, mammoth cheese...) and gtfo just as he's sorta strolling back. Then I search for my horse, who conveniently is chilling by some random, off-road shrine to Talos.
Good times. I eventually got my tusk from watching a mammoth appear above the land and then fall to its death. There were easier discoveries of tusks later, but eh, if mammoths wanna try and fly then I have no trouble reaping the benefits of their failures.
