Skyrim’s got a lot of magic in it. There are spells, potions, shouts, undead creatures, and even a handful of powers that let you transform into powerful creatures to obtain a taste of their power. But one such power wasn’t finished for fear of making the player too powerful. Can You Beat Skyrim As A Skeever?

Can You Beat Skyrim As A Skeever? (in text form)
The beginning of the game is similar to this idea, stupid. The only thing of note that happened between riding into Skyrim and escaping out into the real Skyrim is that I chose a Khajit as my race because it’s the closest thing to a giant feral rat as you can get as a race. I’ll use the remainder of the opening to explain how this challenge works. Despite what your mind might be thinking, I’m not going to use a mod to turn myself into a Skeever, in fact I’m not using any mods for this playthrough, though that’s due to me being inept at modding, doesn’t have anything to do with this challenge in particular. As you know already, Bethesda had originally intended to let the player transform into three of the most powerful creatures in all of Skyrim: the Werewolf, the Vampire, and the Skeever. Just like Pokemon’s three Legendary dogs- Air Bud, Garfield, and Bidoof, one had to be removed from the game because it was simply too powerful. And while the Polymorph Skeever Power is technically still in the game, it is unobtainable without using console commands. Luckily for all of you, I don’t give a about cheating. So, freshly birthed from the escape canal, I used a console command to give myself the Polymorph Skeever power, equipped it, used it, successfully turned myself into Skeever Paul, and the real game began.
There’s something incredibly important that you must understand about this power, it wasn’t finished. Alright. Now I’m not talkin’ about the janky camera or the inability see in first person or how you can’t move directly left or right, you go forwards or backwards and can only move in another direction by making the camera face that direction. I mean if you do the wrong thing, the game breaks. It collapses in on itself, destroying everything, crashing the game. This is not like being a baby werewolf or a mob-boss kingpin rat like Ratatouille. It would be more efficient to explain what exactly it is I can still do, but I like to complain so we’re not doing that. There’s the camera and movement difficulties I’ve already mentioned. They’re annoying but not the end of the world. Attacking is not an option. Attacking, blocking, or attempting to draw a weapon doesn’t just not work, it crashes the game. Not that you’d be able to equip a weapon anyway because the Character Menu is off limits. This means all forms of magic might as well not exist. You can’t bring up the map, so fast traveling doesn’t work either. On the topic of movement, as a Skeever you can’t jump either. Leveling up, increasing Health, Stamina, Magic, or literally any skill in the game isn’t something you get to do anymore. And of course you can’t bring up your inventory either.
I’ll go ahead and let you in on a little secret. When I started this challenge, I fully intended on it being a 90 minute romp that turned into an 8 minute Mitten Prime video. As you can probably tell by the length and the channel it’s on, that didn’t happen. By now, I’ve probably arrived in Riverwood, spoken to a lady of the night about a dragon, and set off for White Run because, for once, I didn’t really have a plan. It was outside the gates of Whiterun my mind began to wander and I became increasingly concerned about how I was going to get through this. In fact, I was so paranoid that I turned to a British Coffee expert for the answers. For the briefest of moments my little grape sized mind thought I could use the special Necromancer rock to summon an army of undead brother rats to fight for me. But that unfortunately requires you to use a power, which is not only impossible for a rat of this magnitude but would also maybe fail the challenge.
