Back in 2006 I started a thread called "Best Side Quests in Oblivion" and the thread refuses to die. Every six months or so some new convert stumbles across it and adds to it.
In order to keep up in the tradition therefore I am asking people to discuss their favorite side quests in Skyrim (A side quest being anything outside of the main Dragon Slayer path.) Lets try to avoid spoiling it for others so name and location of the quest can be prominent but any detail hidden under spoiler tags or at least pushed down the page.
I have just finished the main quest at level 21 and so far I haven't come across any side quests on a par with the best of Oblivion. Could it be that Oblivion had better side quests?
Anyway a couple that did stand out for me are:
A Night to Remember (started in a pub somewhere. I can't remember )
A Taste of Death started in Markarth was quite surprising but I have to confess I couldn't go through with it.
