The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

1. Play through one of the main plots. It may be outré to suggest, but just because there are limitless ways to play Skyrim doesn't mean there's no value in following the parts of it that are most elaborately written. There are two narratives that are the most worthwhile in this regard. One is the return of the dragons to Skyrim. They were long thought extinct and their reappearance now, in accordance with an age-old prophecy, could mean the end days are at hand. Figuring out exactly what's going on, and why, is something only you can do, as you have a connection to the dragons that you'll only gradually discover. Doing so, and seeing the many places it takes you, is a lot fun. The other story you'll want to consider following is that of the civil war gripping the country. Who will take control now that the High King has been killed: General Tullius, leader of the Imperial forces, or Ulfric Stormcloak, who's at the head of the rebellion determined to sever Skyrim's connection with the Empire forever? Pick a side and see what you can do to help settle things once and for all. Just be aware that your decisions have consequences you'll have to deal with not just when talking to Tullius and Ulfric, but when dealing with the rank-and-file folks around Skyrim. If you can't decide which of these stories interests you more, consider pursuing them both: You'll be fascinated at the ways they intertwine as the game unfolds.

2. Climb every mountain. Skyrim is one of the best-looking games we've seen in ages, but even more impressive than the quality of the graphics is the consistency of the design. This section of Tamriel is inhabited by the Nords, who correspond (not so surprisingly) to the Scandinavians in our world, and the geography reflects this. So take some time on your quest and really explore the highlands of this remarkable place. As you proceed ever higher, you'll find some amazing sights among the snow-packed peaks of the region's ranges, though you'll face some fearsome monsters along the way. (Ice trolls and frost wolves are much nastier than they sound.) If you're interested in the most spiritual experience, try making the legendary pilgrimage of the Seven Thousand Steps to High Hrothgar. You may be surprised how much you learn about yourself along the way. Once you get to the apex, stick around a while to observe the silent order of the Greybeards: They reportedly know a lot more about what's happening than their secluded tendencies may suggest. Feeling even more daring? Once you get there, proceed to the Throat of the World, the highest mountain in Skyrim and follow it all the way to the top. If you can.

3. Track down all 13 Guardian Stones. One of the most exciting things about Skyrim is that it doesn't try to shoehorn you into a certain character class. You don't need to decide to be a warrior, a wizard, or a thief; your actions will determine the way you progress in the game. But this doesn't mean you can't get some help along the way. Within your first minutes of playing Skyrim, you'll notice three Guardian Stones: ancient artifacts that supercharge your ability to learn certain kinds of skills. But there are 10 other stones scattered around Skyrim that grant additional powers, such as more rapid restoration of your Magicka when you've drained it casting too many spells or a drastically increased carrying capacity. You can only have the benefits from one Guardian Stone active at a time, but if you know where all the stones are, you'll be guaranteed to have the proper enhancement whenever you need it. So start searching!

4. Join a union. As mentioned, you don't need to follow the traditional RPG rulebook when it comes to character creation if you don't want to. But you'll be missing out on large, fascinating sections of the game if you stay a completely independent agent all the time. Sure, you have the option of joining up with either General Tullius' Imperial Army or the members of the Stormcloak rebellion, and a quick trip to Solitude for the former or Windhelm for the latter will set you on the proper path. You have other options, too, for connecting with other people in the land who share your professional interests. Fighter types may want to join the Companions, a loose, leaderless brotherhood of brave souls who live and battle together in Whiterun. If magic is more your thing, a trip to Winterhold is in order: The college there will help you hone your skills and learn more about the most mystical secrets of the universe. I'd love to tell you about the Thieves' Guild, but of course no such thing exists, as anyone in Riften will be happy to tell you. If you really want to, uh, make a killing, someone in Rorikstead can get you started on the path to joining the Dark Brotherhood. The Blades, an elite commando-type unit that played a key role in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, are still around and may be looking for help—ask around in Riverwood for more information.

5. Settle down. Mara, one of the deities worshipped by followers of the Nine Divines, is the Goddess of Love, and she may be able to work her magic on you. While on your travels, you may come across the Amulet of Mara. If you do, put it on: You'll encounter new dialogue choices with certain NPCs that allow you to fall in love with and propose to them. The game's developers announced recently that both opposite- and same-sex marriages are fair game, so if there's someone you take a shine to, it's worth a shot to ask. Marrying someone in Skyrim may not be without its consequences, but this is a big world and who wants to go through it alone? While you're at it, consider buying a house. They're not cheap (though at least you don't have to contend with credit default swaps), but having a place to hang your helmet, store the hundreds of items you acquire, and sleep whenever you need or want to is a big plus.

6. Indulge yourself. Some cities, like New York, Las Vegas, and Paris have well-deserved reputations for the culinary and alcoholic delights they offer those willing to seek them out. Okay, there's probably no chance that Skyrim will ever join that vaunted list, but you'll find hundreds of things you can eat and drink scattered throughout the realm. Develop your cooking chops and you may even be able to craft some clever concoctions yourself. Feel free to taste test wherever you can and experiment—very little you find will kill you (at least right away)—but do try to practice a little self-control. Enter a drinking contest, for example, and if you get too excited, you may black out and have no memory of the terrible things you did the night before. Your next quest may be piecing together what you did in the time you'd rather forget! (Hmm, where have I heard of this kind of story before...?)

7. See where the road takes you. We could spend all day listing things you experience in Skyrim, but the real fun of the game is unlocking new ones yourself. Not sure how to find them? Just start walking and you'll eventually stumble on something. Traveling Khajiit merchants selling moon sugar. Trios of men joining for an impromptu mead tasting. Members of the Imperial Army dragging along a dissident for... well, who knows. A town full of vampires. A city carved entirely into the side of a mountain. Follow the road from town to town, seeing what awaits you, or make a beeline through the wilderness (though, in that case, you really should keep a weapon handy). Whatever you choose, one thing's for sure: This is a game in which anything can happen. So let it. You'll discover that in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, the sky really is the limit.

So, I have what might seem like a strange question... Is it possible to go off-recipe in cooking, then? Say, could I make a soup including blue butterfly wing?
