    I know its a few days early but I thought Id start a thread for people to post some of their random encounters in in Skyrim. From coming across a fight between bandits or a dragon attacking some pure unfortunate soul, anything!!!

    It's not too early for the people that pirate the 360 version that was leaked.

    I got smacked 50 feet into the air by a giant. Not fun.

    I have been in some Dungeon called Forelhost for the past 2 hours getting my ass absolutely handed to me by these Draugr dudes. I don't think I was supposed to come across it this early in the game. Can't kill the boss at the end no matter how hard I try...

    Na they're weak against fire. Use the destruction spell.

    I was on my way to do a quest to retrieve sap from a special tree..
    I stopped my character in the steam pockets area just before the entrance to the special tree for a few moments, as i had to answer the door *irl*
    Apon returning i found my character and horse floating towards the sky *very Rudolf the reindeer like*

    Anyway moral of the story!...randomly shouting "OMFG MY HORSE IS FLYING" out-loud tends to lead to some awkward looks from said people at the door!

    Yeah, been a baseball for the giants a few times although did manage to kill a dragon on my own yesterday and was chuffed. But then a damn frost spider came up and finished me off in my weakened state. Needless to say, i wasn't impressed.
    But after 2 solid days (maybe 15-18 hours) i feel i need a break. I'm going through Skyrim in my dreams as well......

      In my first random dragon encounter (level 6 character) a giant and a sabor tooth taught I hadn't enough on my hands and joined in on the festivities. I promptly ran for my life; after letting my majika and health re-charge I returned to the scene only to find the giant standing proudly over the corpse of a dead dragon and sabor tooth :D
      Being launched to the moon in my first giant encounter
      Shooting a sleeping bandit in cave which made his sword rocket across the screen

    I was wandering around Eastmarch, heading towards the Greybeards, and was passing by the pools with all the mini geysers in them. I saw a little camp ahead and thought there might be something nice to steal. When I got there, there were three hunters, stripped down to their underwear, sitting and laying down in the water. I thought it was a glitch at first (I've found a few people standing still in rivers for no reason), but it seems to be intentional.

    Like some people (and I'm assuming it'll happen to everyone at some point) I was also attacked by a giant, a mammoth and a dragon at the same time. It did not end well.

    And then there was the headless horseman I saw running around Whiterun. I tried catching up to him, but he was too fast.

    Some biotch called Gerda hired a group of thugs to beat me up but kill me if they deemed necessary. Did a bit of research and she works in the kitchen of the Jarl of Whiterun. Random hatred like....

    My best skyrim moment so far was when i went to a bar in solitude, and was challenged to a drinking contest, so of course I accepted. After drinking too much of this guys home brew, I blacked out and woke up in some temple with an angry priest yelling at me, so i decided to leave. When I got outside I realized I wasn't in solitude anymore so I looked at my map to find I'm in Markarth, and I now have a quest to retrace my steps and find out where my drinking buddy got to, so I can claim my prize.

    I'm one step ahead of you...So far on this quest to find my drinking pal with the Staff he promised me, I apparently passed through Riekstadt whilst on the lash, robbed a Prize Goat called Gleda whilst hammered and sold it to a Giant to help repay what I can only guess was a loan from Zolada(Sp?) in Whiterun(Haven't made it back to Whiterun quite yet..)...

    And that Goat was a git to get back. The Giant who I sold the goat to has it follow him around, so there's no other way to take it back other than move up fairly close and tempt the goat away...

    Needless to Say, on first attempt I was one shotted about 100m into the air.. So on my second attempt I ended up being chased by the said Giant down the hill with the Prize Goat in tow.

    Onto Whiterun now to see about my Drinking Loan now.. Hoping that I don't owe too much..

    Best Quest Ever!!

    Anyone do the quest in solitude with Sheogorath?

    I came back home half way through a quest today to drop off some stuff and caught something very suspicious! :D

    I am finding the random dragon encounters amazing, two stick out so far!

    * I encountered a dragon outside the fort were you fight your first one, it was attaching 5 or so mammoths with 2 giants in tow. After finally downing the dragon I found the mammoths had turned on me and chased me half way to whiterun.

    * Went to pick up the wood elf for some dungeon diving and some archery training in riverwood, just as I get there a dragon descends and chews him up good. I gave him a proper burial by placing him in the river and letting his body float out of town.

    Visually the game is fantastic. I have to say that they really put a lot into it. I think the blizzard like weather in Winterhold is awesome.

    Seen something cool yesterday too, I was walking from Riverwood to Whiterun and the river had salmon leaping off the surface, that was a nice touch.

    How do you make friends with someone so they follow you?

    There are loads of followers each requires you do something for them, a quest, a brawl, sometimes they are gifted to you.
