Just recently started playing this again myself. Very hooked at the moment. I'm hell on companion characters though. I can't quit killing them off... I guess my fireballs are a little errant sometimes. I've decimated a few towns too, because the stupid ****ing locals won't GTFO the way when a dragon swoops in. I'll launch a fireball, and sure as shit some dipshit guard runs up to the dragon and accidentally gets flamed. Then the entire town is fighting me, along with the dragon.
