Hmm, 20 minutes would be hard. Not in terms of gameplay, but there's a lot of NPC jibber jabber and them walking to locations you can't skip through which eats up your time.

Have you tried a Shout? It is easy to forget that you can knock him to the ground with that.

You can summon Dremora Lord without the staff if you train up conjuration, though. Also not sure if you noticed, but before you enter Labyrinthian there is a circular area in the middle .. Go there, and you'll find a journal as well as a Wooden Mask. Equipping that mask makes all Dragon Priest fights MUCH easier. If you equip the mask within the circular area, something fun will happen.. It will make you want to have all eight masks.

Have yet to unlock any shouts yet with this character. Only level 11 and haven't done the dragonstone quest yet, or fought any dragons for that matter

I had just gotten the red bane sword too, which makes undead flee. Apparantly he was too high level for that as well cause even though I ran up and hit him a few times quick he just took out his bow and shot me down.

I got lucky after beating him, I then dropped down that hole and there was ANOTHER overlord, though he didn't have a bow. I stayed on the platform I fell on and he could not figure out how to get up to me and so I just shot him with dual weilding fireblasts until he was dead.

Got some nice drops too, like some ebony bows and arrows, and swords and stuff. Be nice to equip that on my level 11 guy

Yeah, that's what Bethesda tried to do with Skyrim; to give certain areas a minimum level, so that if you go there early you would get your ass kicked. But in return you can get very good rewards.

Specially that run with the blades chick to prove you're dragonborn. and the scenes that you can't skip.

its impossible to beat the game in 20 minutes, because if you're not high level towards the end, you're gonna get stomped by the story bosses. which is quite obvious. I'm not even attempting until 50.

Yeah you can skip the run if you've already got locations in The Rift close to the specified story event. I did it, and it was a huge time saver. Exploration and carriage hiring saves you time, among other things. Like better loot. (got elven armor before I killed my second dragon).

I just got attacked by 'Hired Thugs' randomly. And after I killed them, one of them carried a note that had a letter written from the person who hired them.

And the wtf part:

Spoiler for NPC Septimus Signus:


-----------------

The Steed Stone north of Wolfskull Cave is such a good buff if you're even going on a far looting trip. It gives you +100 carrying capacity.

-----------------

I'm slightly turned off by Dragonplate set because of Daedra set.
Daedra set looks better, has better stats (with shield), and harder to make (daedra hearts as a material) which makes sense for an epic gear, but I was hoping something really epic for a final-smith perk. Dragonplate is just bad in every way and only good for selling to npc's who go broke immediately.

Not sure how I was supposed to know this was giong to be hard. I mean it was just a random side quest from the guy in the arcanium at the mage guild. Like the first quest he gives me.

You're wrong. Go look it up. The game has been beaten in less than 20 minutes.. It was some sort of event prior to the release of Skyrim.. Dunno if it was the developers or who playing, but it definitely IS possible.

I don't see how thats possible. I assume to beat the game you beat that big dragon right? Haven't beat it myself. But from experience it seems its almost 20 minutes before you are untied to be able to even do anything. Hell 15 minutes or so is how long it takes before you can do anything other than just look around. So what can you after getting untied, grab a sword/axe, and then run outside and kill the dragon?

It's not possible.

I'm staying ambiguous to avoid spoiling:

Climbing the mountain; doing the required training; being sent to a dungeon to retrieve an artifact and finding out about the NPC in Riverwood already takes over 20 minutes on a horse while skipping dialogue and not including loading screens. And that's only 1/3 of the game's main storyline.

Also there is no possible way to kill the boss guarding the portal if you rush for the end. It's the hardest encounter you can't avoid to someone. I'm going to guess the character would be somewhere between level 1 and 10.

You can beat the final boss with only 1 shout so you don't get killed in 1 hit, but that takes forever as you are depending on other factors to kill it.

-------------------------------

I wish I had some video making hardware and know-how (My skyrim on ps3). A play-through using the Notched Pickaxe as the ONLY weapon for the entire game sounds like a hilariously fun challenge.

Alrighty so I went and bought this game.

And holy crap are there a lot of quests. Moreso than Deus Ex.

I'm in Whiterun and up the part where your suppose to go meet some old guys in a mountain.

I've decided though just to see how many quests I could do in the city and so far am running through with the companion guild. I am disappointed in the rewards though as you get very little funds like 100 gold. Granted I'm selling off the loot I get but should I keep the Dragon bones for later use? I'm that Argorian cause they look cool and am aiming for an Fate Stay Night Archer build I snipe guys as much as possible then go in with duel swords.

I'm also saving up to buy a house since I'm running out of space to carry items too.

By the way I also bought a horse to get to areas faster but is it possible to lose the horse or have it die? I'm a little disappointed that you cannot fight on horseback.

And when you have a companion with you do you level up slower since she takes some of the kills?

I really don't see how it's possible to complete the main quest in just 20 minutes. All of the quests in the main storyline require you to travel to far-flung reaches of Skyrim just to perform them, and some of the dungeons require you to spend more than 20 minutes in them (especially Blackreach, which is an underground cavern larger than any of the main holds). While you can fast travel to locations you've already discovered, the act of actually discovering those places require you to walk and/or run to them, which will take quite a while. There's also the conversations and dialogue which can be quite lengthy at times, which'll definitely stretch the experience. Finally, if you're going to speed-run the main quest from a lvl 1 character, prepare to have to reload your game lots of times from getting killed due to having pathetic skills early on.

Maybe if you play the campaign as is without all of the prerequisites mentioned above, i.e. as a linear game where you're instantly teleported to the next objective, and with all of the dialogue disabled, then you can perhaps beat the game in under 20 minutes. Under any practical circumstances using an unmodded no-cheat Skyrim game though, I don't see how you can beat the main quest in under 20 minutes.
