    I ask this question to my self everytime my characters spawns. ALAS, DILEMMA!
    When i'm RPing a character with a goal in mind (the actual character's main quest), should i go straight to the point OR should i dance around it (with character's side quests and/or regular side quests, making a living and so on)?
    Sometimes it fits, sometimes not, but if you have to choose based on my example, wich one u pick?
    I really need it to get started this gameplay :D
    Example: :Dragonborn:
    My last character, Varg Cold-Wind, He's not a beggar crossing the border, he got a house and he lost his dog while hunting near the borders between Helgen and Falkreath. Varg got kidnapped by stormcloaks and then captured by imperials (and get to vanilla start).
    The first main quest is to find his dog: Should Varg get straight to his dog (Vigilance, kidnapped by a vendor at markarth) or should he look for him around the world first?
    I mean: reach his house in falkreath to find is dog (the most reasonable thing to do), that is not there (obviously) and then directly to Markarth (because is not so far) to get him and then go to Solitude and continue his quest...
    ...or should he get to riverwood first, doing the Canon bleakfall run (to find his dog of course) to get the main quest line, then looking for his dog that is not in riverwood, not even in the ruins, so he have to travel all around the main quest to find his doggo until markarth (like drinking water with a fork)?

    edit: Would it be a good idea to use dice rolls to get the answer? :D

    Again, my characters knows the land of skyrim (what he doesn't knows is where the doggo gone)

    My english is so bad, i hope you understand what i mean :oops:

    Vigilance is actually his only family member in life. Varg is a Breton Adopted by 2 nords, died to defend a dunmer boy, a childhood friend, harassed by stormcloak fanatics, and Vigilance is the reincarnation (in his head) of this little dunmer boy, because he found him close to his house the day after the kid and Varg's parents died. So he need him for his main quest to avenge them and himself.
