comment Why did you have to blow into an NES cartridge to make it work?
Downvoter: I re-added the single sentence that addresses blowing directly, if that's what you had issue with.

This has bugged me for ages... even looked into creating a patch for it once.

comment What can I do if I already killed a dragon for a Blades quest?
@Kromey They were definitely all marked 'Cleared'. I'm thinking it's something like, "a respawned dragon will not give you a soul" ...... unless you're of sufficiently high level (or finished main quest?) for it to be a high-level spawn such as "Ancient Dragon" which always gives a soul (with Ancient's Ascent bugged). That's only a GUESS. I have no idea. Maybe Ancient's Ascent isn't bugged but spawns a lesser dragon (despite "Ancient" in namesake) that my game considers non-soul-worthy.

comment What can I do if I already killed a dragon for a Blades quest?
@agf & Kromey, So I went on a dragon slaying tour to all the altars to figure this out. Each location long since cleared. Many an Ancient Dragon soul was found, until I found some plain Dragons (perhaps spawned much earlier in my game) which didn't decay, no soul. The subsequent respawns though were Ancient Dragons, for which I always received a soul. Somehow level/type based perhaps? Here's an oddity though, the Ancient Dragon at Ancient's Ascent (SW Helgen) never gives me a soul, period, on any respawns. Everywhere else does.

@Kromey Sounds like a bug to me. I kill a dragon, I get a dragon soul. I just tested a few more times at Skyborn Altar, soul each time. :-/

comment Do guards ever take any action against you for shouting in cities?
Non-harmful shouts only ever get warnings, so shout away, lie to the guard that you'll stop, and shout some more.

I've done a dozen quests for Vilkas / Farkas and neither is asking to be cured. :( (After finishing main Companion quest line.)

comment What is the purpose of the Jarl's map in the Dragonreach?
I keep wondering, are the locations all added at once upon 'using' the map, or must you hover over and 'use' every pin? I didn't pay enough attention to notice.

comment Stealth with companions
@Pithlit After so long they will "become tired of waiting and return home", I received this as a notification after fast-traveling around a bit. Not sure how long it takes but it was well timed as I had just realized I forgot where I left them.

Of course it's really an aileron roll. ;) (vs. barrel roll)
