I'm part way through building Lakeview, just the basic layout and part of the structure done, no decorations and nothing beyond the defaults outside - I'm heading nearby and a little overencumbered so decide to stop in, drop off some stuff (including a nice, but heavy daedric mace I was given) and maybe build a little whilst there. I ride up and, from nowhere, 3 tough bandits appear. My guy is a lightly armed and armoured thief/assassin - great if I can sneak up people, which is nearly always, not so great if plunged into the middle of a melee with 3 foes. With no follower and no house-carl at the site my only option is to run away. I'm just lucky they never think to look in the chest or take over the house as a base Are these guys set to spawn at a specific time/place? I think this is the first game I've not used fast travel, so I'm used to the bandit attacks (or worse) when teleporting in, not so much when walking or riding there. I may have to get the housecarl or leave a follower in the area, just to be safe in future.
