    How do you play Oblivion? Are you a Mage? A Stealthy Character? A warrior? A mix? Describe your character.
    Is he/she an evil character? A good character?

    I'm usually a caster/fighter.
    Touch destruction magic, heavy armor, and the blade skill.

    Now though, my character can cast a touch shock damage spell for 100pts of damage for 11 seconds... so really I just kind of walk up and blast things away.

    I usually mix it up. I try to get all my skills as high as possible, that's just the way I am. Some skills are more annoying to raise then others though. Also, I usually prefer sword fighting to destruction magic, but I use both.

    As for the good and evil question, I've never found myself to be able to play as an "evil" character in these sort of games. I just don't have the conscience or something I guess. I't dosen't really matter that much in this game either though.

    I'm kinda a Battle Mage, although I didn't pick that class. I fight with a sword and heavy armour whilst using Conjuration spells to distract enemies. If I'm just walking from one place to another and I encounter bandits or monsters though, I normally just keep normal clothes/mage robes on and let conjured creatures do the hard work for me.

    I tend to be a mix of all 3, sneaking upto enemies and using spells from stealh positions and wading into melee when they get close - I use my bow to snipe from a distance when Accuracy is very important

    I'm full stealth, I use mostly only bows with poisioned arrows, I also never run anywhere without jumping every couple of seconds so my stats for that got pretty high, meaning I could ninja my way across rooftops most of the time dressed in the dark brotherhoods clothing while stalking my pray lol.

    Yep, that's basically what I do. A jack of all trades is my favorite to play as, but I also have a character for each specific class (warrior, mage, stealth).

    I played it through the first time as a "paladin" type of guy. Heavy armor, 2h weapons and healing spells. Good stuff.... then my xbox360 broke. And i bought a ps3 and never replayed since.... i might pick it up now that its coming on the greatest hits series.

    I'm a mix between Good and evil. My character is a mage, warrior, and stealthy character.

    The reason I'm a mix between good and evil is because The Cowl of Nocturnal (The Gray Fox's Cowl) is very useful.

    Slaughter people with the Cowl for the Dark Brotherhood and take it off for guilds like Fighters Guild.

    The game is fun when you get the Umbra sword in the beginning of the game and some Ebony armor. (It slows you down though).

    All of my characters are different, I have mages, combats, assassins, and thieves, but I am more concerned on my mindset while playing the game, like i really only like the way i play the first game I play, but after that i start playing it in odd ways, ultra role playing, setting up the life before I start, and it ends up with me having a horrible unfufillment in the game, I love TES games but I just can't play them anymore...
