    I love the way you can set an active quest and concentrate on it including map markers.. however im dissapointed i cant add my own markers. I could in morrowind, although only on the local map not the world map.
    Also i miss from the morrowind journal the A-Z index where i could find someones name and then anything to do with them would show up etc.
    Its very hard to keep track of who is in what town/city :D

    well i am playing it on the 360 and can definitely set a marker, only one mind but I can still set one

    Haven't missed map markers. I just set whoever/whatever I'm looking for as my active quest and it'll put the marker on the map.

    You can set (blue) markers on the map. Shift click on it I think (assuming PC version). In fairness, it may not be in the manual, I saw that on a loading screen tip.

    I generally enjoy the journal and map interface, I wish they showed a little more of the map and you had to walk everywhere at least once before fast traveling there and I mean the cities too, other than that no complaints really

    I expected when i started playing and noticed you could fast travel that there was a chance you could be interupted by enemies along the way... thats what used to happen in baldurs gate. You would then have to actually defeat them.. or run.. you could not just travel quickly.

    I admit i used the travel a lot last night as i found a dungeon with bad guys wearing lots of heavy expensive stuff. i could not carry much so i stripped everything i had in a chest till i was naked then grabbed what i could, fast travel to nearest town.. sell everything.. go back get more... i did find though that some of the bodies had gone.. one in particular with all orcish armour and nice things.. and new bad guys had appeared.. one of them had a silver claymor that did cold damage so that was a nice bonus.

    This damn game will ruin my marriage :D Never spend any time with the wife any more :D:D
