    I haven't really thought about it and I think thats the best way to approach it. Go with the flow, I'm not going to masochistically play through using only a certain type of weapon cause I decided it would be cool before release and then discover its not as cool as imagined. :(

    Going to play a half Warrior half Rogue Orc. Then either a Wizard Dunmer or a Witcher style character (Alchemy focused with big swords and a few spells) Oh and I always play kind of good guys.

    I'm so tempted to basically try to be Thor. Giant hammer, lightning magic... heck, that Storm Call shout is perfect.

    Magic user to start, then when my magic skills get high enough I'll start leveling melee weapons skills and heavy armor so I'll be a spellcasting powerhouse.

    Jack-of-all trades. Either that, or I'm going to roleplay as a witcher (alchemy, iron and silver swords, magic and the killing of every monster that looks at me sideways).

    • Find a dupe item glitch.
    • Go into a town/city.
    • Dupe 1000 watermelons.
    • Never return to that town because the frame-rate goes to shit.

    Other than that be a dick.

    Going to make a complete Hand-To-Hand character even though it seems like they removed most of its viability, a battlemage, and a rogue which I'll use to...

    I'm going to start out with either a stealthy/archer Dark Elf or a Viking Nord.

    This is causing me to lean towards a viking Nord right now.

    I almost always end up with some mix of swords and magic, since I like to do both up close and personal combat and ranged when it's convenient.  My character will be a female something, probably whichever race is the least fugly.  I plan to be rather freeform with questing, since it's something I've never done.  Usually I go straight for the main quest in a game like this so I want to take my time with Skyrim and do whatever grabs me at that point in time.

    My first character probably won't really follow any of the three major archetypes, but will instead focus on all the new crafting mechanics, making and selling a bunch of cool gear, and occasionally bumbling his way through dungeons using his sneaking and conjuration skills. He'll also be an Argonian, because lizard people.

    I'm glad you asked my character will be named Tom Lumberjack he will dual wield axe's and nothing else he hates tree people and will atempt to kill them ON SIGHT and has also been know to be a major alchoholic that will constantly drink. He steals because his mother was a roque and his father was a tiger so that makes him a lumber jack tiger man who happens to be an alchoholic. 
     
    ...so yeah that's my character

    Argonian Archer Mage thing. Just as long as I manage to fuck up my build just right.

    Also, the game is less than two months away. That's pretty sexy to me.

    A norn warrior who mixes two-handed weapons and one handed weapons with magic. And bows when they're necessary.

    And I'll inevitably have a stealth-focused character because sneaking is alot of fun for me.

    Probably a nord warrior type. That's not because it's more lore appropriate, I just really liked Nords in oblivion. Snow and mountains just feel awesome in Elder Scrolls games and Nords like them some cold.

    The same way I play every Bethesda game. Spend hours tooling around on side quests and nonsense until I burn myself out and never actually finish the game.

    I'd like to be a stealth character with good magic abilities, but I may change my approach to the game depending on what weapons and other equipment I can find early on.

    If the magic skills are as awesome and powerful as they were in Oblivion, I will be all up in that. Why pick locks and sweet-talk shop owners when you can alter your surroundings with the power of your mind? Yay Conjuration/Alteration/Illusion (and Destruction I guess, but mostly the other ones)!

    Funny you mention it since you could beat Morrowind without ever killing a soul.

    That out of the way I will do the same thing I do every elder scrolls game. Melee fighter/stealth locking picking expert. Probably an imperial or Breton race wise.
