Spent most of the day installing my favorite mods (FCOM + addons) and some I haven't tried before (TIE). Survived the tutorial dungeon fine, but got my ass kicked by the first set of bandits. FCOM is tough, FCOM + TIE seems damn near impossible (but I'm not giving up yet).
Recreated a character that I enjoyed during the end of my last Oblivion bout. Similar to a Nightblade, but more of a passive trickster (heavy focus on illusion and conjuration, sneaky with a blade, but no marksman). I think last time I also used destruction, but opted for restoration this time to make him a bit more passive and the game a considerable amount more difficult.
