Children in Skyrim are assholes

I wish the PS3 version had mod support so I could teach those little fuckers a lesson. Every time I come to a town, one or two little snotnosers are up in my shit just telling me random things when I didn't fucking ask. I can usually tolerate kids in other games, but in Skyrim they are legion and constantly blabbing about nothing. Did I just activate some strange pied-piper quest or are others experiencing the same thing?

You might want to talk with a psychiatrist sooner or later.

The Jarl's kids are just the worst, You should be able to punch them when no one is looking.

I can't stand kids to begin with but I feel like Bethesda went out of their way to make all of the kids little shitheads that you WANT to hurt but cannot.

Fixed that problem though. Love PC modding.

I can't wait for a "harm child" mod for the PC.

All these years we thought we wanted children in our video games. Turns out, we were wrong...

There's one little girl in Whiterun who acts all tough around me. It seems really stupid.

"I'm not afraid of you, you know, even if you are my elder."

"Girl, I'm a massive Orc wearing armour made from the bones and scales of the dragons I have killed, with a magic warhammer from hell. The fact that I'm your elder is the least of your problems. Shut the fuck up!"

@Jayzilla: It's already out. You're clearly underestimating PC gamers hatred towards kids.

edit. @Atlas: That should be a conversation option with all the kids.

@Rappelsiini: Yeah, even if you aren't going to let me harm the kids, at least let me scare the fuck out of them. One of the best parts of playing an evil character in Fable II, and to a lesser extent Fable III, is that kids and townspeople run the fuck away from you and cower in fear. It makes you feel really powerful and actually feared.

Bethesda really likes obnoxious kids in their games. Remember those fucking shitheads in Little Lamplight in Fallout 3? Wanted to smack all those kids. Except the ADHD kid. He was jokes.

Your avatar's Gordon Ramsay face was pretty much mine when I heard that come out of the brat.

Good thing I have the PC version to take care of all of these brats.

It's like they took the attitude of Princess from Fallout 3 (anyone remember her? God...) and applied it to every kid in Skyrim. It's actually kinda annoying.

Right, guys? Guys?

But yeah in all seriousness, they're all terrible in Skyrim. Even one I saw that was getting bullied, when I talked to him he just gave me shit. No wonder he keeps getting his head kicked in.

I think Bethesda based those kids from a certain sci-fi character that everyone hated. Whenever I walk past them, they speak and sound exactly alike.

I don't want to kill them, I just want them gone. Is there a mod out yet that just kidnaps them all to Neverland or something?

Isn't killing them more humane?

Unless...you mean Neverland like Peter Pan, not Neverland Ranch. Subtle, yet huge, difference.

One of them invaded my house. I couldn't fireball the thing to death and stabbing didn't work. Is a man not entitled to privacy on his own property, and by extension, the right to defend that privacy?

Whichever is cheaper. I've got an iron daggers business I need to run and I can't afford an expensive mass-kidnapping.

Do they have the set bounty console command like in oblivion? I had so much fun setting guards to a 3000 bounty (apparently in Tamriel, 3000 is straight kill-on-site for anyone) and so guard would attack guards who would have guards attack them for attacking guards, plus all the friendly fire going on... it was a massive war.

Basically what I'm saying is can we get all the town guards to chase after and attempt to fight children?

I just did this. And then turned the former Jarl's son to ashes in front of the Jarl. He didn't give a shit.

I find kids in real life tend to be generally annoying. That doesn't mean I wish harm on them.

Walk past them. Move on with your life.

At least there's a mod to kill them in Skyrim, in real life, you're out of luck.
