comment Why can't I hire the Knights Templar?
Have you checked if they're part of the Crusade? There are numerous cases where they seem to get the Crusade goal when the Crusade is won, which suggests they take part normally.

comment What determines if a soldier is gifted with psionic powers?
Out of interest, did you reload before starting the 10 days or after? I'm wondering when the roll is made.

comment How do you attack with your backup weapon?
FWIW, I use the gamepad on PC, and I'm sure others do as well, hence my original answer.

comment Why do the cars my soldiers are hiding behind keep exploding?
Could the miss be causing a crit on the car? Might explain why sometimes the threshold for explosion is reached in one shot and not in others. Seeing as regular cover sometimes does and doesn't shatter under fire it looks to me like the game still rolls damage.

comment How do I combine more ingredients during Alchemy?
Does it only add additional effects, or is it possible to boost a single effect (ie using three restore health ingredients)?

comment Can I save up dragon souls?
Part random, part not. Word Walls on the main world map have dragons defending them, and you encounter some in the main quest-line.

comment What do the different symbols on the map represent?
I don't know, the shield also marks Orphan's Rock, Sky Cloud Temple, Reachwood Eyrie... maybe it's a generic marker for things that don't otherwise fit?

comment What effect does increasing the magic skills have?
@affe Is it on increase of magic skill or purchasing the next reduced cost perk? I've only ever checked after grabbing the perk, so I can't verify either way.

comment What do the different symbols on the map represent?
@Mason The shrine has a kind of bar on top that I think the Dwarven Ruins lack. I might have that backwards, operating from memory right now.

comment Do the Treasure Maps serve any purpose?
The second looks like the farm due south of Whiterun.

comment How do I make money efficiently?
@BenBlank From what I've seen, smithing is only profitable if you buy ore rather than ingots or use mined ore.

@Mana Will do. Thought I did that the first time, guess not.
