I really like The Companions and The College of Winterhold quest lines in Skyrim. My only complaint is both are way too short and have the depth of a fish bowl. Both stories had so much wasted potential. However in other places Skyrim seems to paint a vibrant view of life in a harsh magical environment. There was a time wondering though a cave reading journals that I was reminded about one of my favorite quest lines from Fallout: New Vegas (Randall Clark’s computer journals as the Survivalist). Although the Skyrim’s equivalent is both way darker and (of course)shorter dealing with a necromancer necrophiliac and the journals deal with his little experiments.
