What the...? (Skyrim non-tech-related question)

Post by Rath Darkblade » Wed Nov 06, 2013 1:01 am

So I decided to fire up Skyrim once again, and as I'm wandering through Riften, this is what I see...

To make it even more surreal, a few seconds later, the guard got up, walked over to the bridge, couldn't climb over (of course) and ended up jumping into the river. *LOL* So apparently the guards can sit on thin air - but don't ask them to climb over a bannister, or point any arrows at their knees! ;)

I'm just thinking... did I miss some kind of spell/ability that allows me to do that? Just wondering... *BWG*

Yeah, sometimes games -- especially large open-world games, like Skyrim -- have some weird glitches.

Cracked has done numerous articles in this subject. Here are some of the articles I can find easily:

Clearly this is a guard who was in a dark place in his life, contemplating ending it - and you, the hero - could have gone over there and talked him out of it. Instead, you just watched him plunge to his death! :lol:

:lol: I spoke to him, but he only told me about the arrow in his knee before he jumped. Maybe that arrow was never extracted properly and was just too painful? ;)

Maybe he jumped because he was tired of hearing overused memes. :P

Well I'm not sure what's going on, but I visited Riften once again... and this is what I saw...

At least he's not sitting in mid-air any more, but why is he sitting on empty air at all? Not sure what he's doing there, except enjoying a refreshing beverage... ;)
