So, I've finally started my do-all-the-things game. As if it needed any explanation. It's:
Find all the places, words, shouts, do every major quest and most of the fairly unique tasks. Buy all the houses and essentially finish up all the achievements. See you in six years!
EDIT: Why are the last twenty levels such a freaking grind! I never reach fifty because I don't have the patience. Still when I come out the other side I should be pretty cool. I need to get some stuff in the enchanting branch. Also, I found out in another game that if your armor rating is above something like 526, whatever is over that is a waste. You can only ever block 80% of the damage you take. Though I think you could block the elemental damage you take...
EDIT EDIT: Of course, it's the levels after fifty that are supposed to widen the gap between you and your foes, so I'd have to do those if I wanted to be an unstoppable god-made-flesh.
EDIT EDIT EDIT: You know, I thought it was supposed to be impossible to kill Shadowmere. Well, I did. The moral of the story is that Skyrim horses are not good jumpers.
