Except there's no Bound Dagger spell. Sword, battleaxe, bow.
There's a Mod for that.

Did it make you happy? You know, breaking my bubble. :[

Oh, well. You can always carry a dagger. There just happens to  be piles and piles of corpses in their skivies, and they always have daggers. ::)

Just started a Thief with Archery, Illusion, Alteration, and Conjuration. Turn the biggest prick in the dungeon into a rabies infected killer, watch from the shadows as he cuts down all 6 guys at the poker table and promptly reward him with an arrow through the back of the head.

I was kicking ass and taking names until I got jumped by a freaking pair of bandits. One was really OP for my level, too. He was so OP he got a kill animation on me. x_x;

You have to watch out for power attach from some mobs.  Briarheart forsaken have one shot me with two handed weapons.

Actually, I had finished killing an Ice Wolf, and they can be pretty nasty if you're not level ten yet. I was healing up when these two bandits came running up. Bastards.

At least it's still not like New Vegas, "Oops, you went one half foot too far north before we wanted you to. Giant radscorpion for you."
Me:(0_o);

All though, is it me or does Skyrim kind of throw around wisp mothers in the oddest of places. When your magic doesn't involve directly hurting things it can get hairy.

Think it's just you. I've only seen wisp mothers in two places: one spot in a tomb (where it's there every time), and at one of the surface dragon shrines if you go there before unlocking the dragon quests (dragons aren't guarding the words if you haven't done the western watchtower quest yet, other things are there instead - a hagraven at one, some skeletons at another, etc.).

I've run into about three in various places across various game, but I think only one was where it was supposed to be.

I ran into one at a dragon roost, and that's apparently accounted for.
I ran into one doing something for the mages guild but that was in a ruin.
I ran into my first near Shriekwind Bastion (don't remember witch) guarding nothing particularly important. She was probably on her way to the place she was supposed to guard, because I ran (bravely) and went back later and she was gone.

The first two are where they're supposed to be. That tomb/ruin is part of the mage guild quest into the Labyrinthian, right? It's always there.

Dunno about one hanging out by Shriekwind Bastion though. Might've just been random.

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! :D

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.

Sabby, if Akatosh and the Elder Scrolls had meant for Kahjit to fly (with bird wings) he wouldn't have made them you know... cat people! Cats eat birds!

I'm actually waiting on a mod someone is currently working on for dragon mounts.

Yawn. Eragon wannabe. I find the return to when dragons were greedy evil power hungry loot hording virgin stealing beasties that made good armor, trophies, and floor rugs a refreshing change of pace from the hyper-enlightened Tolkien elf in reptile form that they've become.

Dragon mounts implies friendly Tolkien elf made reptile dragons. There's a reason you have to coerce the one into actually riding him. These dragons aren't nice.
