    I do because it is very useful since most of my builds are pure magic and no weapons or at least as weapon less as I can be. It also helps level up my conjuration.

    You guys need to remember that all animals have white souls and will never go to the soul cairn. Only the souls of dremora and man/mer are black and can be sent there.

    Why wouldn't I? Because he was trying to resurrect his dead sister? He still went around killing people. Sounds fairly brutal and a bit psychotic. Sounds like a perfect candidate for the Soul Cairn.

    Interestingly enough, I think I've only done that quest once. On the character I did that joined with Stormcloaks. Windhelm is probably my least visited city.

    Hey does anyone know how to get 'permission'? I was going to try to post another topic and it said I do not have enough permission.

    There is a brief cool down before you can post after having made a post. Perhaps you encountered this anti-spam contraption?

    Omg, I can't believe no one talked about him, at least Nazeem is sitting in the soul cairn, "Do you get to the soul cairn very often?"

    I wish Named NPC's you soul trap would actually appear in the Cairn (like Ulfric in Sovngarde). You could use it as a master prison for all the villians of Skyrim (Malkoran, Mercer, Ancano, Nazir etc.) and then visit them! There should be a mod for that (even though i'm on Xbox).

    Do I feel guilty? Hell yes. When I found out I would use the gems to make a series of powerful silver rings with the same name as their power sources (had a real Dark Lord thing going on). Made quite a collection, with some of my greater foes being used to enchant some more lucrative rings ('Ancano' was a silver amethyst ring that gave me 128 magicka increase).
    I dont sound very guilty, do I?

    My bard certainly would, and then proceed to nail his corpse upon a burning stake in the town square. (Hurray for mods!)

    Well tbh I didn't honestly register this at first. Once I did I felt a little bad so I changed tactics a bit. Now my character will go hunting with a Soul Trap enchanted bow for animals, as animals have white souls, or only Soul Trap people when she's really in desperate need of a black soul (which is very rarely) - and even then she does it to bandits and the evil people of Skyrim. She will use found black soul gems - she feels that's not on her because she didn't trap them in the first place, and until there's a way to release them.. I mean which is worse really, leaving a soul trapped in a gem for eternity or the Soul Cairn? Its a matter of opinion. I feel like atleast in the Soul Cairn there may be a way out, or at the very least they have some semblance of a life, even a hellish one. My other good characters won't use anything but white souls either.

    I don't feel bad in the least, period. No exceptions, no special rules, conditions, or exceptions. I don't really care for the NPCs of Skyrim, beyond my OCD need to keep all of the citizens in towns alive.

    It's not just black ones, if I remember properly. How else did a horse get there?

    Couldn't tell you that one. But Arvak is not a normal horse by any means. Perhaps only certain animals will do, or Arvak was a magic experiment gone wrong. Maybe there is a certain set of requirements to be met. I'm not sure and I don't think they really explain it. But I haven't seen any elk or sabercats in the Soul Cairn so I believe those are still white souls, which is why my character hunts them. :/

    Just to confirm, do you actually have to use the BSG for them to go to the Soul Cairn? Maybe there is some sort of Limbo for souls that exists inside the gem, like Azura's Star.

    Exactly my train of thought. If a bandit attacks me, then I couldn't care less if he's sent into the Soul Cairn or the ninth circle of hell.

    Not at all. That place is pretty chill and colored. I wish I had more quests there. :D
