Yeah, archery is overpowered in Skyrim. If you can find a place to hide and/or stand in a place where the npcs can't get to you (like a mountain top, shooting down on them). >_>;

Also, are you playing with any mods?

Only one so far, but I'll be looking through the recommended ones this week since I'm no longer under pressures of a deadline.

I like playing stealthy and assassination-y.

I agree wholeheartedly with you on that. ;)

If i ever get around to get the Dawnguard/Dragonborn DLC's i will start a dark elf vampire magician and a redguard werewolf ranger/assassin playthrough.

Although, i'm probably going to wait untill i can get them both on sale. >.>'

I have to admit to being torn between playing a Cat and playing a Lizard ;)

For some odd reason I always wind up playing a Kajiit Female. Usually a bare-clawed attacker type (just enough Heavy Armor to get the Iron Fist perk.) Well forged Dwarven Gauntlets on a Kajiit does more damage then most weapons.

I rerolled, made a Khajiit...I'm up to lvl 22 and kind of scary. I've been doing a number of one-shot kills being sneaky. Got my smithing up so I can make elfen armor :)

Yeah, stealth one-shot kills are so OP in Skyrim.

Yeah, but if I screw up, I'm usually dead.

At least your first character isn't a mage wearing only robes. >_>;

I died so much in the early game because of lack of armour and low health. XD

First changed when i got a decent skill with destruction and managed to get a few first shots with sneakiness.

If you want a challenge in Skyrim. Play expert/master difficulty wearing no armour. :ymdevil:

I don't know if this is bad, but I seem to have a problem killing NPC's...I've killed a number of hunters and wanderers and such without meaning to...they had nice loot though :)

As long as there are no living witnesses hon, there's no bounty. :ymdevil:

So far, no witnesses :D

The weird part was, I did kill someone in front of other people, but I was so far away that I didn't get a bounty placed on me for some reason.
