[stray dog skyrim]Turns out adopting a dog in Skyrim is the hardest quest in the game…

Update time:2021-08-04 16:11Tag:

  Like most of Bethesda’s RPGs, Skyrim is a game brimming with possibility and stuffed with content. It’s how those two aspects come together and intersect that make it interesting. Like when a player finds a dog abandoned by its owner (to be fair, the guy was dead) and wants to adopt it, but everything that can go wrong does. It’s sort of like when we followed Dogmeat home, but fewer mutants and more heartwarming.

  Since no one can tell the tale as well as player Patrick Lenton himself, I’ll let him do just that.

  worst part of Skyrim was when I found that dog whose owner died in a cabin, and then I of course had to adopt the dog bc i’m not a monsterApril 5, 2016
