    Not a mod, but I've seen a few applications that do that. I've never tried them out, though - if I'm playing a character I'm playing that character. If I switch characters, the one I was playing is abandoned.

    I thought it was 15%, and yes, it basically lowers your enemy's max health. Dragon Priests, Dragons, Same-level-as-you NPC's, all of them now have 85% of the health that they used to.

    Also, if you take it, it will disintegrate any enemy. On dragons, this means you miss their death animation, though you still get the soul if you hang around for like 10 seconds.

    It also stops enemy spellcasters from reanimating corpses. Can't raise a body if the body is ash. If you're a Necromancer yourself that can be inconvenient, but it's very handy if you're not. The only downside is that if you're fighting in the snow, it can get hard to find the bodies if they're all piles of ash.
    ...but of course that's just my opinion.

    Amusing bug: I went to Skyborn Altar to get the Mehrunes' shrine, and a blood dragon had spawned there. I hit it with Dragonrend, it landed and then disintegrated as if it had died. I absorbed its soul but its skeleton kept fighting normally, including flying away after Dragonrend wore off. Seeing a skeletal dragon fly was quite something.

    Yeah, whenever I go to the one that you kill at the western watchtower, the skeleton is always thrashing around. I dunno what to make of it.

    So that's why he's always had a red hood with the mask... I assumed it was normal, but I guess it was because I either had a mage's hood or the hooded archmage robe.

    +15%(ish) damage? If the average perk did that... you could hit for 1000 times normal damage by 50. Its absolutely worth it.

    It seems that the Vagabond Armor from the mod has the stats of a Glass Armor set, but can be crafted even on low Smithing levels. Using it for a while now feels a bit like cheating.
    Also, it seems that either JaySus Swords don't get better than Skyforge Steel/Elven or I'll need better perks to craft those that do.

    Really? It had a dragonspike sword, or something like that, that was better than my ebony sword (albeit I didn't have the ebony smithing perk).

    Maybe it requires an earlier perk than Ebony Smithing. I mean, I could craft stuff as good as Elven weapons before getting the Elven Smithing feat. I don't recall seeing the Dragonspike Sword, though. So I guess those weapons do have perk requirements.

    Two mods I installed last night, both very useful:

    Cowardly Horses - So you won't have to buy a new horse every time you get in an ambush. The horses now run off to a safe distance.

    Horses For Followers - All stables sell a second horse, for the same price, that the follower uses. It is programmed to home in on your horse after being bought.

    In other news: I am still bad at 2handed weapons - The fight against Skinner took a long time, and I had to reload three times.

    "HERP, DERP! NINJAAAAAAA!!!!!" - Kai Leng

    Wouldn't Cowardly Horses make horses potentially hard to get back, though? I've never really used horses myself.

    Agreed, frankly after the first time I had to chase my horse half way to Whiterun from Rorikstead, I switched to convenient horses, and I haven't looked back.

    Being able to set my horses to run from the fighting, then call them back at will, as well as select armors, or no armors, and being able to talk, or harvest from horseback makes life far easier.

    Usually they don't run far, in my experience (from a full 3 hour playtime). Als I have found that in combination with Horses for followers... it gets easier to find them (if they run away in a dense forest).

    I just don't use horses at all, really. They're slow and awkward enough to ride and mount and dismount that I think I'd save just as much time walking, in most cases. Plus they die from jumping down a five-foot drop which makes them disastrous to cross rough ground with, and honestly, hiring a wagon to a hold and then fast-travelling across the map from there on out is just so much easier.

    Shadowmere is a fun tank and all, but aside from that, there's just no practical side to horses in Skyrim that I can see. They're just a decoration that's more trouble than it's worth.
    ...but of course that's just my opinion.

    I want to use horse, I really do. I want to fight dragons in a Shadow of the Colossus style, chasing them on horseback and shooting them with a bow, but I find that it doesn't work all that well. Even rendered immortal and oblivious, horses are just too annoying and mounted combat is too limited (can't hit Jack with polo - er, melee, and can't aim down with a bow).

    I wanted to use a horse because running around the whole Skyrim by foot is rather silly. But gave up on that when it turned out I can't pick up ingredients that way without dismounting. The other issues don't help, obviously. I've yet to see a game with actually good mounts, really. The ones in Mount and Blade were decent, but it's a different sort of game than Skyrim.

    In Oblivion, Jiub was known as Saint Jiub after having wiped out the flying vermin known as cliff racers.

    That's the other upside to Convenient Horses. A fast dismount key that tosses you straight off the rear of the horse, so it's not right in your face to be whacked by accident.

    Plus unlike the UFO mod, you can't accidentally steal a followers horse. I've been killed a couple of times by climbing on the wrong horse and having even those followers who shouldn't report crimes, to leave my service and try to kill me when I tried to rehire them.

    How? Unless you dismount every two seconds or so? Since I barely use fast travel, a horse is worth it.

    Not sure how you whack your horse by dismounting on the side?

    Also... I guess I am paranoid about stealing, but I don't think I have ever stolen ANYTHING I wasn't intending to...

    I think the main mechanical reason for horses is that you can leave a dungeon with 2,600lbs. of loot, then get on your horse and fast travel.

    Spoiler
    Show
    I recently cleared Mzulft as part of the mages guild quest. I took everything that was worth ten times its' weight, that could be smelted into dwarven ingots, and ten dwarven cogs (also part of a quest). Whenever I and Lydia hit our weight maximum, we'd run back to the storeroom outside and dump it in a chest. I had my horse parked behind the storeroom. When we got done, I had over 2,600lbs. of crap. I went to darkwater crossing and smelted all the dwarven stuff - 500 ingots. Five. Hundred. That alone brought my weight down to 1,300.

    I just had to share that.
