An Aside

🕹 Elder Scrolls IV (Oblivion) leveling adaption:

Want to focus on your preferred playstyle and not be penalized for not micromanaging skill-ups to get three +5s each level?

When you level, count how many points you are missing from a +15 total. Go to the console and put in the following commmand:

  • modpca $YourLowestAttribute $ThatNumber

This keeps you at +15 attributes each level and has the level-balancing system keep in a reasonable range.
