    Is anyone else scared to go into skyrim's waters at night? I sure am. Don't know if its because its deep and I cant see. I know there are no sharks or anything in the water. But yet in northern skyrim's waters I fear to dive in. Are any of you like this?

    nah, but only cause the game wastes an opportunity to make the waters scary. No sea monsters or anything etc etc. I recall reading a vampire lorebook in the elder scrolls games that talked about vampires that would live under the ice and pull people under, thought for sure something like that would be implemented in skyrim. The rare times I play argonians though, I do like to hop in deep water when being chased by guards and such, puts their worthless racial ability to some use at least.

    As a side note, I am freaked out at deep water in actuality. If I can't see the bottom, then I don't go near it. Think though it's less fear and more disgust, fish creep me out with their unblinking eyes.

    Not really, no. There's nothing to fear.

    Though there's also very little cause to enter the water at all. Especially in that area. You can get almost anywhere you need to go by staying on the ice flows. Which is just as well. Even that nord-blooded frost resistance wouldn't save you from hypothermia after a dip in the sea of ghosts.

    It would have been great if they added a variety of sea life. Sharks and other scary creatures. Slaughter fish, in spite of their name, are more of a nuisance than a legitimate threat.

    I certainly agree with Dark Assassin. I dunno what it is, but I guess it's the unknown murky abyss that unsettles me. I've read too much of Lovecraft's work :p

    It'd be great if they put something other than slaughterfish in the water,then,maybe I'd be more timid.

    Recently I've been playing with the music turned off, and walking around anywhere at night is kind of scary. I'm generally fine with the water, but forests and mountains are another story.

    Nah. About the worst you'll run in to is a slaughterfish and they're not all that much in the danger department - or maybe drowning.

    I always fire candlelight before diving in. Yeah, the dark water is scary!

    There's something in the water, I do not feel safe
    It always feels like torture to be this close
    I wish that I was stronger, I'd separate the waves
    Not just let the water take me away

    Not really, slaughterfish are just a nuisance, nothing else to really be afraid of in the water. The marshes near Morthal are a different story though, damn Chaurus.
