    I just reinstalled Oblivion last night and downloaded the Shivering Isles expansion. Anyone else play this?

    I just started a new character and am just in the Arena now, but expect updates as I start the Shivering Isles quest.

    I still haven't beat the main quest for Oblivion. I have this and the other expansion just waiting for me.

    I've played the Shivering Isles part of Oblivion and I think it's pretty good especially when you first enter the Shivering Isles but like what Duke said in his review, it felt like they didn't do enough with the whole insanity theme.

    The Shivering Isles is honestly better than the main story of Oblivion. So, yeah.

    Sounds like a deal. I'm almost done with AC: Brotherhood and I'm too burnt out to start DA: Awakening. So why not?

    I need to get this new gaming desktop so i can finally beat the storyline of Oblivion, and try out Shivering Isles before Skyrim.

    I'd be up to running through the Shivering Isles if we do a group thing. Though since I've done it a bunch of times before, I could easily get through it faster than you guys.

    Just tell me when to start and I'll get on it!

    I've started my Oblivion playthrough, as I said, but I won't begin the Shivering Isle quest until you guys do.

    I'll wait until you guys do. I have a character who I'm like level 5 with that I stopped playing on, so I'll just use him if that's alright.

    Also, what do you guys have it on?

    I'd be down too, that's assuming my PC copy has Shivering Isles...

    360 is out of the question because I know I don't have Shivering Isles on it...And I've never patched it (Item dupe ftw)

    I have it on PC, so I'll have a few mods, though not much serious changing stuff.

    And GL, you can still item dupe on the most recent patches through the scroll method. IE, go to two magic scrolls of the same type, click it twice, and then drop what you want to dupe. It'll dupe the number based on the number of scrolls, so you can dupe more scrolls and do it a bunch more.

    I did not know that...I only knew about the arrow one.


    But PC has the console anyways, so it's better.

    Before I lost the data on my first PS3, my best character was almost at Madgod. With my most current character, I've spent most of my time maxing my stats, training my skills, and doing all of the quests in the vanilla copy. I can try to install the Shivering Isles again, but I'm not certain if it'll work with the save file.

    If that fails, I'll happily play with you guys on PC. I could take a break from Nehrim and go back to actual Oblivion.

    I'll be playing this out on PS3. What would be best? My high-level character or my newere low-mid-level character?

    Oblivion scales to your level, so it doesn't matter. There's no level requirement, or really any disadvantage.
