comment Import character in Skyrim
There is definitely a command to reset all quests but I have no memory of what that is.

comment Is it possible to prevent the mouse cursor from highlighting menu items?
I believe this is a new problem introduced with the interface fixes in either Patch 1.2 or 1.3. It will probably get un-broke in a future patch.

comment Is Resist Magic multiplicative or additive?
What? It's additive like every other resist / fortify / etc. thing. Where is it said it's multiplicative?

comment Am I missing something by not owning a home?
The "Winterhold Room" he mentions provides 1 and 2. I don't know if your spouse can move in with you there, however, you get more of a bonus from sleeping in any bed you own than a random unowned bed, so you still get some additional sleep benefits.

comment Why do I only find two-handed magical weapons?
Lots of loot weapons are "random leveled one-handed enchanted weapon" or "random leveled greatsword" so if repetition yields you the same type of weapon you just need to go somewhere new.

comment Can horses act as witnesses?
And some NPCs still continue to mention it even after you've reversed that decision.

comment Which of my items should I take on missions?
@yx. When you've got 10s of thousands of gold worth of stuff to sell, those speech perks come in handy with or without that group of merchants -- being able to sell to every merchant in a city means way less time spent fast traveling.

comment What are the “special items” Delvin is looking for?
@MrSmooth You sure? If you look at uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:The_Litany_of_Larceny you'll see that it's a single quest. Quests can only move forward in stages, not back. And I missed the Dwemer Puzzle Cube until after I'd already turned in later items, and I have no quest for it or dialogue with Devlin.

comment Can the bard play music or musical instruments?
I would say it's technically right, but theoretically wrong :). Good addition, either way.

comment What are the “special items” Delvin is looking for?
@BenBlank Because all of the rare items are part of a single quest, once you've picked up the Dwemer Puzzle Cube (for example) it's too late to turn in any of the items before it.

comment Can I turn the difficulty up higher than Master?
I was under the impression that the game didn't get significantly more difficult at levels higher than 50ish?

Reset all your skills to zero. Take away all your perks. Play naked. There are lots of ways to make the game harder.

comment Where did these NPCs go?
@JuanManuel Console commands don't affect Achievements if that's what you mean by "cheating"?

@JuanManuel And the quest marker doesn't show up?

comment How can I start the Blood on the Ice quest?
@Rachel No, it definitely didn't say "InvestigationTarget", but the quest also definitely wasn't started -- though it's possible the murder happened right around the time I entered the house without me knowing it.

comment How can I start the Blood on the Ice quest?
@Rachel I got the "Started: Blood on the Ice" message by wandering around the house investigating without having any idea about the murders. I am fairly sure I got it on the first object I investigated, but that could be wrong -- this was about a month ago. Try finding the secret room and reading the journal.

comment How can I start the Blood on the Ice quest?
@Rachel You need to do more than just enter; I was trying to avoid additional spoilers. "Investigate" something in the house and it should start automatically (it did for me).

comment What option in Skyrim did I set that caused my books and book text to look small?
Doesn't adjust the size of the book, just the stuff you can see behind it.

comment Dragons are buggy - how to resolve?
If he had to run away from his first encounter after being killed several times, he's almost certainly not on the easiest setting.
