    To add to the theme of this discussion.......
    Does anyone have a preference for a particular custom voiced follower? 

    I do!

    My favorite, after trying a few, is Inigo. He's funny and useful.

    I then like Sofia and/or Vilja for my female "Joan of Arc" type character, though it's mostly Sofia.

    But my main character (which I will add, for my own personal role playing) is the same character I use for all the Elder Scrolls games.

    I'm not saying it's the same "class" but the same person and I have a whole backstory as to why this is. Sort of like Longinus in "The Empty Throne" only "not".
    Yes, I like Sofia too. She's too funny. I almost fell out of my chair once when we left Skyhaven Temple once and she referred to the 2 Blades as "The Geriatric Dragon Slayers"

    I only wish there was one that was for stealthy players and also has a really dark and gritty character. But unfortunately, there is no custom follower that really has that  kind of personality and at the same time has enough programming to recognize what's going on in the game (Like Sofia)

    Skyrim is harsh. Followers should not sound like we are on a field trip to Disney World. And most of the really good voiced ones do.

    If only I could get used to her character's voice. Every time she speaks, Vilja sounds like a Grandma trying too hard to be a badass in front of her grand kids while at the same time, being careful not to use offensive words.
    I think that is her draw and what gives her depth.

    She doesn't sound like a "grandma" to me but has a sort of "grumbly voice" little girl quality. I look at her as a sort of "reluctant" hero (though she not a "hero" per se) as I believer her nature is to be an alchemist but because of circumstances is thrust into situations that forces her to grow yet not really betray her first nature.

    She's flawed and therefore interesting because of it. She's an unlikely character to be "adventuring" and yet there she is.

    Have you tried Anduniel? It's actually a mod pack of several followers. But very well acted......albeit very chipper.

    If you are going to try this mod, And I do recommend it., Us the updaded version.
    The one that is Anduniel is out dated, you want the one wher ethe authro combined all the followers into one pack and titled Anna NPCs

    Now that I think about it, I am still in Bleakfalls Barrow in my new game. I think I am going to drop Sofia and go with Anduniel again this time. While not as funny and sarcastic. The mod is highly interactive. IMO, in terms of technically advanced, I'd put Anduniel between Inigo and Vilja.

    How do you play Skyrim with friends? Are you saying you all play the single player game and then speak to each other on Team Speak? Or in the same room?

    I'd get Sky UI and the unofficial legendary patch and play through the game as it is, it will give you a lot of insight as to what is lacking from the game and what you'd like to see improved, not to mention the base game is great on It's own.

    Then I'd wait with really getting into modding until the 64 bit remastered client comes out.
