  • I decided I'd try reviving an old post from last year, since I actually got to laugh out loud at some of the ridiculous stories I saw there. If you've got a completely crazy or just horrible random encounter you've experienced, post it here.

    • 20 Imperials vs 20 Stormcloaks. It was chaos.

    • I was caught stealing in raven rock and instead of arresting me all the guards instantly tried to kill me. I didn´t want a bounty so i used bend will on them.

      Trust me: Bend will + 20 hold guards = Ultimate CHAOS

      At first it was orderly 2/3 of the guards were fighting the other 1/3 for me but after a time the shout wore of and everybody was my enemy again.

      Only that the guards who had fought each other before continued to fight. It was like a battle Royale, everyone against everyone against me.

      On top of that a Dragon and Ash spawn simultaniously attacked raven rock. The chaos was complete.

      At least thats what i thought until a group of Morag Tong appeared to kill me and i was forced to let my pocket army of Spiders run wild in Raven rock.

      That day made my day.

    • After underestimating a Dragon with Dragon Combat Overhaul installed, I tried to run for Morthal, but another dragon pops out and now 2 dragons are attacking me relentlessly.

      One of them used their "Limit Break" to summon an storm of Ice Spells in Morthal.

      It was total anarchy in the town.

    • After Picking up the final tasks for the greybeards i went to riverwood to complete the companions guild side quests i had to beat up a woodelf to submission and just as soon as i started a brawl with the woodelf a dragon appeared and landed ontop of a house building, and before i could land any blows to the woodelf, the dragon instantly killed him so the mission failed for me :<

      The dragon only killed him so right as i killed the dragon and absorbed his soul, two cultist appeared in front of me and asked if i was dragonborn. "......" <----- *real life reaction*

      After killing the two cultist a Vampire and two deathhounds appeared and already killed 5 guards. 

      "Nope, Nuh uh, I'm done, FU** it, Yo**, I'm outta here" retreated to falkreath where i spend my days being a lumberjack, build a house the jarl offered me, and retire from a heroes days....That is until a group of bandits came by and killed my stewerd (Sven) and that's where i snapped.

    • So I refuse to Fast travel on my play-throughs. I also delete the Characters when I die, to add some flavor to the game.


      With this in mind, I'm about level 12, with Dawngaurd and Dragonborn installed. I had just finished a trivial Bandit Bounty for Whiterun, the one with the Forge and Mammoth tusks in it. After a very hairy fight through the camp on Legendary difficulty I was thankful to have brought Uthgerd with me as she undoubtedly saved my life. 

      It's well into the evening now, but instead of sleeping (I tend to sleep and eat for role-playing purposes) I decide to hurry off to the safety of Whiterun and catch some Z's at the Inn.

      On the way to Whiterun we are ambushed by Blooded Vampires and again, barely fend them off. Tired and wanting to collect my bounty I make it to Whiterun. I decide that being 1 am (Game time and real life) I grab a room, and log off. In the folowing morning when I return playing I leave the Inn only to find it's 7am and Vampires are attacking the town. 2 Master Vampires, 2 Dogs, and 2 Thralls, Adrian dies almost immediately, and Uthgerd gives her life yet again to save mine. 

      Making it through the fight, somewhere I must have accidentally assaulted a Guard because one is in the middle of arresting me when a Steel Arrow is launched at my head. Killing me before I can submit or pay my bounty.

    • I  was level 7 and I didn't really had any equipment with me, and after many hard battles with sabre cats and hired thugs, I was walking the road to Dawnstar and I heard shouting in front of me. I looked in front of me and I saw 3 Vigilants of Stendarr. I said: "Yay. Finally some friendly people."

      I walked to them, and I totally ignored the naked bodies next to them. Then I looked that guy in the eyes and I realised they were vampires.

      That was my first death ever.

      After respawning, dragon attacked...

    • I fast travelled to Winterhold, and when I arrived an Ancient Dragon attacked.  I had it down to half health when a Frost Dragon and a Legendary Dragon showed up.  Thank the Divines I had plenty of healing potions, even at the max armour cap a legendary Dragon can pretty much kill you instiantly.

    • I got a kick out of when i was attacking a Giant camp on the plains with 2 giants. Then a bit after that my random dragon attack happened so now me and een the giants stop trying to kill each other and go after this dragon.... at the same time those 3 armored thugs came because i must have stolen something from a shop owner for one of Delvins "steal everything in the city!" quests but i quickly dispatched them, i should kept them in the mix. what happens next? hey apparently A Thalmor search party decided it was a nice day to take a walk but it got ruined when they got too close to one of the giants and it set him off. so at this point i stop attacking the dragon and book it towads the hill to get unnoticed so i could watch from afar as a giant (other one died at this point) a wounded dragon and some elves kill each other. that was my first mass encounter when i first started playing, christ i think it was after that Black Smithing glitch i exploited too, thats how long ago it was lol

    • I once went to Eastmarch to hunt down a mammoth for their tusks for Ysolda's request.

      Since I cleared out many Giants' camps a while ago, I had to head for an uncharted camp in the tundra.

      As I sneak attacked a mammoth to lower it's health, 3 hired thugs snuck up on me and drew their weapons in an attempt to kill me. The nearby giant and an wandering Ancient Dragon then joined the fray and all of them were against me.

      I seriously had to improvise by using hit-and-run tactics while avoiding the melee.

      I was playing in Legendary difficulty and had no followers.

      Also, I had Dragon Combat Overhaul, which made the Dragon I fought even more terrifying than the Hired Thugs, the mammoth and the giant.

    • Hey, a Homestuck. Not sure I've seen many of those around here.

      Hm. Basically, any high-level mage. Any. Especially the ones that use ice spells, though. I absolutely loathe Ice Storm.

      Oh, oh, wait, I have a new answer. Those magical anomalies Ancano spawns. Seriously, what is the deal with those? They can take an absolutely obscene amount of damage before they finally go down, and they're incredibly difficult to hit.

      Oh and shortly before that, I was I think in the 30s range in terms of level. I was coming back to Winterhold after talking to the Augur. Well at this point, I'd been dealing mainly with brown dragons and blood dragons. ...And then an Ancient Dragon shows up and attacks Winterhold. I died quite a few times before I finished him off. I think it was an Ancient. It was orange and black. Those are Ancients, right?

      Yeah. I decided to powerlevel this character before I really got started on most of the quests, so I could get the leveled gear at 47. Or 46. Whatever the cutoff point is.

    • I was running an Vampire (who hadn't fed for 4 days) against one of the forts which had been taken over by high up fire mages. Add one very pissed off revered dragon (who kept doing fire bombing runs on me and me alone) in the mix and you have an idea. I went 3 minutes before deciding to summon Durnehviir. This was with the dragon overhaul mod. Chaotic, terrifying and awesome. I wish I recorded it.

    • I reckon mine was pretty cool just not as exciting as the rest. Anyway......

      I'm doing the civil was quests for the stormcloaks at level 7  with my archer. During the battle for Fort Sungard i was relying on my stormcloak back up to take down the imperials due to the diffuculty level, my health is 100 and stamina 160 which is why i was using the back up. During the fight i started to notice 3 thalmor agents running around killing both imperials and stormcloaks. We won in the end due to my killing of the thalmor and constant troop backup. i couldnt figure out why the thalmor were there until the next day (real life) when running to Ivarstead i seen 3 storm cloaks and 3 thalmor fighting.....my guess is that this happened during the For Sungard quest as well....Never seen it happen since but still how awesome: Stormcloak vs. Imperial vs. Thalmor = Most Epic Fight Ever.

    • I have had plenty of random encounters that sucked, but here's two

      1. It was when I had started my first play through when I had just got to Riverwood. I had done some random quests earlier and wanted to get back on track. Sometime I must've stolen something because there were hired thugs after me. I ended up deleting that playthrough  because I was stuck in a never-ending loop of death. ( I was still only level 2)

      2. It wasn't really a random encounter but I was trying to sneak past Calcelmos guards with Lydia (Not the best idea) and she said "I've got a bad feeling about this" or something and I got caught. So happy for that auto save.

    • I was playing on legendary difficulty and naked (with no gear) and had not leveled or spent any perk points so was still level 1 (for a bit more of a challenge) when I was sneaking up on a legendary dragon but then out of nowhere another legendary dragon appeared and they both started trying to breathe fire at me, then out of nowhere 2 giants appeared and then an assassin from the dark brotherhood and TWO lots of hired thugs, so I figured to get some space away from them but I accidentally ran to a fort FILLED with bandits and also 2 more giants and 2 mammoths were near so then they joined in ALL trying to kill me, also as I was running through the countryside 2 saber cats and a cave bear and 5 wolves joined in, then the noise attracted the attention of more dragons so by the end there was like 100 legendary dragons, 500 hired thugs, 200 thalmor, 50 hired assassins, 2000 bandits, 5000 giants and 5000 mammoths and 20000 wolves and too many bears and saber cats to count, and eventually I killed them all but it was a tough fight but then after my computer crashed and blew up and set on fire and smoke was coming out :(  But I fixed it and it runs even faster now and has gone from 4 cores to 8 cores idk what I did but I must have done a good job :)

    • This wasn't exactly a bad random encounter, but it sure was... unexpected. I was in Rorikstead when a dragon comes flying in. It was at that very moment that a patrol of Thalmor came along. The weirdest thing was that they HELPED me kill the dragon, and all survived! They remained unaggressive, too, and continued their walk. Is it because I play as a High Elf?

    • Heh. I remember one time when I was walking near the mountain Forelhost is on, and the next thing I knew was I was being chased by 3 frostbite spiders, 5 bears, and 2 wolves with a large herd of deer getting in my way. Now THAT was one of my worst encounters to date.

    • I was doing Clavicus Vile's quest and the dog Barbas initiated conversation just as a frost dragon and vampires attacked. Before I could react Barbas exited the conversation himself and started chasing the dragon. The vamps split their attention between me and the dragon. Once that was done Barbas came right back up to me and resumed conversation from where he cut himself off.

    • I save my game while in a battle against 5 or 6 bandits, 2 seconds later a fugitive comes up behind me and says "here take this" which forces me to stop attacking and look at him with my weapon down so I die non-stop and I have to go to the save before.

      Secondly, was a battle royal! It was me vs a dragon vs a giant vs 2 mammoths vs 4 mudcrabs vs 2 or 3 bandits vs 1 guard. I won of course but mudcrabs were second because everyone else went for eachother

      Thirdly,(yes I know your bored just stay with me) I fast travel to Riften and the guards kill a thief go into the bee and bard come out and another thief is killed, and yes this happened a third time but what was ironic is they all died in the exact same spot and they were all dressed the same so it looked really weird :/

    • Getting out of the Thalmor Embassy thru the cave, two Dragons landed on me and the rescued ones. I thought I was feeling lucky and heroic so the battle begins and I make sure to get all their attentention to save the defensless hand fighters and frightened women. Three or four Thalmors recognised me as the disgustiong informal party animal from earlier so they joined to thank me in their way. I did hear the bear that was bitting my rear end but the dragons fire and ice shouts did get most of my attention. I did finish all but the bear with my trusty Bound Bow. But I pulled all the hair from that bear before spanking him bad with my bare hands! Naughty animal.

    • My first character was cursed with strings of bad RE's. Especially in Eastmarch, Riften and Whiterun. Everytime I was in Eastmarch around the hot springs, I was attacked by at least 2(4 at most) dragons, and 2 groups of people, like a group of 3 Vampires and the Dawnguard at the same time as 2 dragons. Riften was attacked by a Dragon every time I Fast traveled there, or just walked outside of any building. Whiterun was attacked by dragons half the time in the same conditions as Riften, and the res of the time it was attacked by Groups of Vampires. Also had an issue where Solitude was attacked by a Legendary Dragon(was the only dragon attack on the inside of Solitude ever for me) and I thought I still had Dragonrend equipped so I used the full shout only to realize it was Storm Call....I just ran out the windmill exit, hid at the bottom of the river(was an Argonian) and went to go make lunch. When I got back I had a bounty of around 15K in Haafingar and 4K in Hjaalmarch(didn't think Storm Call reached that far).

      So many NPC's died on that character that I decided to just kill everyone I could. Except my wife, Housecarl and Steward at Lakeview.

    • I was below the dragon spawn behind Riften coming from Fort Dawngaurd when I was attacked by 2 Legendary Dragons, 1 Reverent Dragon, and 3 Dawngaurd Soldiers at the same time.

      I had my Mage clothes on which increased one handed, alteration, and maybe destruction, with Legendary Dragonbone Sword and Dragonscale sheild.

      It was this encounter that made me realiese somethings:

      1. I hate dragons that team up.

      2. A Sword and sheild technique can be really effective in a fight where youre outnumbered.

      3. Armor is not needed after level 85.

It was already clear to me there was a dragon in the area, as well as it was clear for the dragon that i was in the area as well. A Frost dragon that was, fortunately, i got assisted by a Giant and two mammoths to kill it. And just as i killed the dragon, suddenly, i found myself flying 500 meters above the ground, since i got too close to a giant while fighting the dragon.. I was like "Thats it, i'm done! -_-' ".

    • I was on my way to Dragontooth Crater to kill the dragon there for the bounty quest (with a level 36 warrior/thief) when suddenly, a frost dragon and an elder dragon attacked me and Serana. I thought one of the dragons were from the Dragon Lair, so I decided to stay and fight the dragons. Out of nowhere 3-5 Forsworn showed up and joined the battle. Eventually we killed the Forsworn and the frost dragon, but the elder dragon just flew away. after we got like half of it's health. We then continued to Dragontooth Crater to see if the elder dragon was there. We found it, yes, but there was also an another dragon. This time the elder dragon didn't escape, so after a long fight we killed it and the other dragon. Rewards: 3 dragon souls, tons of gold from the Forsworn, the dragons and  the chest, alot of dragon bones and scales, an awesome Ebony Bow, other random stuff from the Forsworn and the Dragon lair chest and of course word to a shout from the word wall. Not bad, eh?

As soon as they are killed a group of 7 wolves, 3 cave bears, and 3 frostbite spiders come rumbling up the road and decide that they want to tussle. I survived and managed to kill them all but yeah... That wasn't a pleasent experience.

    • So, I have a problem where I never carry around health potions (except for the white phial).

      So one day, I was out in the field near Whiterun. Suddenly, I come across a Giant Camp. I go into sneak mode to kill it with a bow. So I'm shooting at the giant without being seen. At about that time, a dragon appears, blowing my cover. So the giant, dragon, and the giant's mammoths all come after me. Then 2 frostbite spider appears and tries to kill me, and as I'm running, I come across another Giant Camp. I get too close to the giant there, and it and its mammoths come after me as well. As I kill the dragon, another one appears.


      Somehow, I lived.

    • Idk if this really counts but 1. I built a slaughterfish trophy on my small trophy base in Windstad manor and it did not show up so I built a saber cat on the big base next to it and the slaughterfish appeared under the saber cat and on the small base where I put it 2. When I came into my armory in lakeview manor and my mannequins started dancing and then went up to thier stands and stayed in the dance pose and they are stuck like that it was so funny I almost died laughing and I still laugh every time I enter my armory

    • Once I was trying to help my little sis get to Ivarstead to kill Narfi and She was level 3. A Spriggan attacked and she had no armor and no decent weapons, as well as no health potions. I saved with her at half health and left it for her to deal with.


      Besides that, only random encounters I've ever had were wolves and they went down easy. Managed to complete the entire main questline without a single dragon attack besides those that were scripted as parts of quests. Miyaaba Swift-Blade was lucky. Hopefully my new character will be as lucky as she was.

    • I'm a level 28ish archer-ranger type, with a couple of followers and heading to Eldergleam Sanctuary with Maurice the Stupidest Pilgrim to Ever Walk Skyrim. We were warned he's hard to keep alive, so we fast travel to Darkwater Crossing and plan to walk to the Sanctuary from there.

      Roughly five seconds after appearing in Darkwater Crossing, a dragon attacks. I shout it down with Marked for Death and start shooting arrows at it, because this is my tried and true dragon killing strategy, but Maurice the Stupid Pilgrim runs right at the dragon and tries to punch it to death with his bare hands. Needless to say, he dies, and I really want him to get to the Eldergleam alive, so I reload.

      Dragon attacks again. Me, Faendal, Marcurio, all the guards in Darkwater Crossing and some warriors I can't quite make out in the chaos are all fighting it, and it dies, and somehow the only casualty is a Stormcloak soldier. I run up to the dragon to drink its delicious dragon soul, when something stabs me in the back. I turn to see a freaking mammoth charging at me while a wolf is trying to chew my legs off.  Apparently the people I couldn't see were Aela and Njada (who are supposed to be my friends and shield-sisters, with me being Harbinger of the Companions and all) who thought a dragon wasn't quite enough fun and they should flush out a mammoth right into me. Those are good friends, all right. I'm lucky I have really good armour.

      We regrouped, started off to the Eldergleam Sanctuary, and got pounced on by a sabre cat. When the final dragon dive-bombed us right outside the cave, we just ran for it.

    • I had just completed the introduction quest for the legion and was walking back to Solitude on my lvl 5 Warrior. A Old Orc comes up to me and asks me to give him a 'good death'. I oblige him and start attacking him. I get him down to around a quarter health when three hired thugs turn up and start trying to kill me. Allready struggeling to bring down the Old Orc I turn and run away towards Solitude hoping that if I make it there the Hold Guards will help me. I  get to the tower where the carridge is and run past the guard standing there. He draws his sword and shouts a warning, I assume it is for my enemines and that he will attak them. I turn around and face my four attackers and start laying in to the Old Orc. After a few hits I bring him down after getting a pelting by the thugs and having only a slither of health left. I turn back and run up the slope hoping that the solitude guard will slow the heired men down but he was nowhere to bee seen. I run towards to gate and just see him fleeing inside the city. I realise that the guards will offer no hope and so I must make my final stand against the thugs. I start slicing at them with my sword and blocking with my sheild, I get a few good hits in and bring them all down to around half health. However during the fight I use my health potions and eat all my food, my last Minor healing Potion only manages to get me back up to around half heath. By this point I am right next to the main Solitude gate and strangely the guard standing by it is not even remotly bothered by what is happening in front of him. The Thugs then get me down to just about a sixth of my health but by that time one is lying dead on the floor. After blocking a strike with my sheild I just manage to hear the guard say "It's a damn shame" before I slash him with my sword. With the Solitude Guard now joining the fray I flee back down the hill towards the stables. Without thinking I turn left down to the docks and sprint past another Guard on patrol, who joins the merry band of 3 angy men chasing after me. I knew that if I yeilded I would be cut down by the Thugs and so I had to charge on. Unfortuantly what I thought was a fleeing citizen turned out to be a Courier jogging along the path above the docks towards me. As he engages in dialogue with me the group of two guards and two hierd thugs chrash into the back of me. I bash every key on my keyboard but in just a couple hits I was dead.

      Not completly the fault of the random encounters as I probaley would have killed the two hierd thugs if I didn't slash the guard but an anoying experience anyway

    • So recently I started up a new character. he's an argonian (dun dun DUUUUUUUUUN) wizard. anyways I wanted to test if you could kill a giant with no followers, with only novice spells at level 5-8 (this was level 8 but that doesnt matter) so I started the character, got out of helgen, went to a giant camp on a hill that was next to a bandit camp who has a bandit who asks for 200 gold. so I went ahead and pissed off one of the giants, but not the other giant (for somehow) and started wailing on him with my flames spell, all while running away onto the road and towards the bandit who asks for money. so I get the giant to about 1/3 of his health, and then the bandit forcively talks to me. a split second later I joined the NSA (nordic space association ), and the giant was my reference.

    • I installed the Alternate Start mod recently, adding to my massive mod list.

      The moment I left the abandoned prison, I heard a lot of fighting and steel clashing.  I imagined it was just a few bandits.

      When I got on top of the bridge, there was a small war going on, with 6 separated skrmishes involving Stormcloak and Imperial soldiers.  I had nothing except for ragged clothing and a dull axe, but I tried to get some one-handed experience by mowing down the Imperials.

      I accidentally hit a stormcloak soldier after I hit an imperial, and the entire army turned on me.

      Yeah.

    • For me, it's when one hostile encounter I've meet has gained the upper hand forcing me to run, I turn a corner, and there's another hostile encounter. It doesn't really matters what specific encounters they are, what matters is I'm stuck between two groups or two monsters or maybe a group and a monster who both want to kill me.

      I honestly think that whole "max armor cap" crap has no real base as I can fight (really just stand there) a legendary dragon on legendary difficulty and still barely take any damage all thanks to my exploited armor with it I basically have god mode on and I'm on PS3
