Skyrim – The Horse

Quick story of skyrim bug I penned out today that I figure could be considered blog content.

“I came over a crest to find a fort. I quicksave, as is the eternal knee jerk RPG reaction and proceed to endure battle with the skeletons and magi of the fort. They were strong, very strong. I died repeatedly, but never gave up hope that I could defeat them. Eventually, I decided to attack from a different direction and moved around the fort, while hugging the mountain side. That’s when the horse happened. I hear a thud and turn around. A dead horse is sliding down the mountain path. I look back to where I had left my horse. Phew. Not my horse, then what the hell? Horse aside, I attack the fort. Die. Reload. Attempt the sneak around again, get to the same spot and thump. Turn around, there’s that dead horse again. It was not there 2 seconds ago. Luckily, I die again to the inhabitants of the fort. This time, frak the fort, I sneak around to figure out this horse business. As I approach the spot where this ghost horse appears I make sure to note no horses can be found on the ground and my horse is where I left it. Noted. I step forward and *thump* a horse falls dead in front of me from the sky. No way. I reload and prepare once more for The Horse, and look skyward. Sure enough, as I step forward a dot appears in the sky. It grows larger until it becomes clear that there is a dead horse falling in my general direction. Thump. Yup, same dead horse. Eventually, I got bored making horses appear in the sky and moved onward past this deranged fort that meant only death for wary adventures and flying horses.”
