Slow-paced role-play with a Breton mage (pure mage). Difficulty: Master. Permanent death (on death, this let's play is over).
Can a Breton goods peddler find his inner hero, his destiny, or will he die trying?

Yngvarr is an average chap. Not a hero by any means, unless picking flowers or buying and selling goods makes a man heroic. He is a Breton goods peddler and a recreational alchemist who, before arriving in Skyrim, isn't aware of all the powers hidden within him.
His father was a Nord caravan guard and mother is a Breton healer. Yngvarr was born in Elinhir, a town in Hammerfell, but he never really had a place he or his family called home, as he became a travelling merchant like his parents were.
Yngvarr came to Skyrim looking for an adventure, for a new beginning for his life, but he barely made it past the mountains when he ran to an ambush by the Imperial forces and was knocked out before he had the chance to talk.

About this let's play
Yngvarr needs to sleep, drink and eat, and he can't be running all the time. Unless there's specific reason to run and sprint, Yngvarr will walk, like a normal person would. Yngvarr can't reload the last save if things don't go his way, so if he dies, he dies.

Mods and Tweaks
Since the mod list is mile long, I have a Google Doc up where I list all the mods (and my Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini): http://goo.gl/TYPWx.
It's not a guide, just a list of mods I'm using. I won't answer ANY QUESTIONS about how to install mods, how to fix if Skyrim crashes, etc.
I'm using several graphical enhancements mods and HD textures that enhance the looks of the game while staying true to Bethesda's designs and Elder Scrolls lore and keeping the game playable as I'm recording in 1080p.
At first, I used STEP - Skyrim Total Enhancement Project as a guideline (compilation of many, many mods, mostly HD Textures, but also other graphical tweaks). Later, I started removing mods and adding other mods too.
I'm using Nexus Mod Manager to install and update all the mods, you should too. (or use Wrye Bash if you want hardcore)
Another NOTE: Overmodding your Skyrim will make it more and more likely to crash. Know your computers and graphics cards limits before tweaking the graphics settings and adding HD textures and such. In case you're interested, my rig is i7-2600K (Overclocked @4.5Ghz), SSD drive and Nvidia GTX 590 (3GB) as listed in my FAQ.
