I now have the Hearthfire DLC, and I want to build my character an estate off in the country when city life gets too much for him at his mansion in windhelm. My dilemma is I'm not quite sure which part of Skyrim I want it to be in. I think it would be sort of redundant to have more than one country house, so I would like to just pick one. I really like the area around dawnstar because its just by northern ocean which i like and its all snowy, on the other hand theres a fluffing curse on the town and its always being hit by goddamn dragons (might just be me but one attacks about every three times i enter) not to mention that that one dark elf guy is creepy as hell. Then theres morthal, the poorest of the towns and i suspect the most filler-iest of all the nine holds, its populace are all super duper paranoid and distrusting of strangers, there is a burned down house right smack dab in the middle where a little girl and her mother burned to death, the remnants of a vampire cult (here remnants assuming you did the quest to take them out) and its on a goddamn swamp, however it is very secluded which suits my purpose and I like the Jarl and noone is really militant about the civil war which is a nice change of pace for the region. Lastly Falkreath, I love how its not snowing everywhere it feels warmer it has great scenery and I like the priest at the graveyard, but the jarl is a dick and its best known for a gigantic graveyard. Tell me what you think.
