As you walk outside, you see a bright, cloudless sky that stretches from peak to peak. The snowy mountains cutting short the endless vista you would otherwise be able to look out upon. Ascending the nearest mountain, you are attacked by bandits, whom you quickly dispatch with fireballs and arrows. Climbing higher still, you hear a loud roar as you come across a clearing with a large stone building in it. Alighted atop the topmost tower is a dragon. It sees you and swoops down to attack. Welcome to Skyrim.
