Skyrim: Murdering Grelod the Kind - YouTube
Pay to train to level 50 costs 28k...which if you use faendal as a follower, means you get the money back from him...its a great glitch. Lol

I'm a little late to the party here I know (my meagre budget has me clasping at pre-owned games when I can!) but have to say I'm enjoying it so far... although the first 30 minutes wasn't fun. I assume that had I played Elder Scrolls games before, I'd know how to equip armour and weaponry and wouldn't have spent the first half an hour running at armed guards in a tunic and trying to pummel them with my bare hands like a psychopath.
Also, I'm new generally to modern RPG's and clueless when it comes to race, so I wussed out and went for the Nord.
Oh, and about 4 hours in I figured out how to use Magick.
Steep learning curve!
Magic is good to use as some races are weak against it...the bow is good to use as well, as you can do much more ridiculous damage (more than a sword, axe, hammer, staff)
Also, I have one major gripe with this game that I'm surprised hasn't been patched yet - how f'in irritating is it when you're trying to listen to somebody and some random bumps in to you and starts talking carp over the top of them?! Seems like a major oversight to me, completely killed the apparent drama of a speech being given to some troops I was trying to listen to last night, not to mention making me miss some potentially vital plot points a few times now.
When that happens I just hack them to death and try to deal with the chaos that sometimes ensues the best way I can - either hacking to death a few more people or running away
Also, the first time I saw a giant/troll (not sure what they are yet, they hang around with mammoths), I tried talking to it. That was a quick death.
This is the first game I've played like this, never touched WoW or Oblivion, the most recent RPG I've played was FF XII... I'm learning!
There's a place in the game where you can shoot the giants in the head with an arrow and leg it over to a tower where they can't get in through the doorway. You can dispatch them at your leisure then but it does take some time to kill them by just prodding them with your sword.
I cant believe some people dont like this game, i think its amazing!
Im not sure what level i am (i think im 46ish), or how long i have played, all i know is my girlfriend is near to dis-owning me!
The glitches do get annoying sometimes, however i have only experienced two.
1. A quest that i came across, opens up some 'entrance' to another 'place', however you cannot exit that place without speaking to a certain person, which is there during the quest. However after the quest the 'entrance' to the 'place' should close, but it doesn't ... so you can walk right into it without knowing, the person not be there ... and be stuck! Re-Load! (Hope that makes sence wanted to stay away from spoilers and be vague!)
2. A quest for a 'red sword', cant remember the actual quest name, but basically you learn about it by reading a book around skyrim, then you go find a sword blah blah, simple, easy 10 minute quest... HOWEVER, there are many of those books around skyrim, so i have done the quest ... 6 times now... and the BAM i pick up the same book in a random shack and BOOM the quest starts up again 'Find the red sword' -.-
Other than that i haven't really found any other serious bugs, little things like if an enemy dies mid air it sometimes hangs there... but that doesn't bother me. If you find you can place a bucket over somes head and steal everything... simply, dont do it!
Conversation Engine 3/5 (Conversations in skyrim can be a little ... urm... bland, say the least!)

We would like to warn you about the local flora and fauna, in case this was not clearly described in our pamphlet;
Trolls are bad.
Giants are bad.
Mammoths can be bad.
Basically if it looks big and bad, it probably is. Exception to this are the Horkers (Walrus), they're neutral until attacked. You cannot yield to an animal, if it's provoked you'll have to slay it.
Wildlife that's not big and bad encompass anything you'd see in Bambi, i.e the foxes, deer, rabbits, chickens etc. This includes dogs, but not wolves.
Also be aware of highwaymen and bandits on your travels. If their "name" is Bandit, or a derivation thereof, there will be no reasoning with them after they attack. You will not be able to yield to them in a fight. If they have a camp, they may warn you if you get too close, usually by drawing their sword and declaring that you're stepping too close. Listen out for these warnings as they won't give them to you again if you get any closer.
Bandits will scale to your level. If you're a low level, you'll only face regular bandits or slightly tougher Outlaw variety. As you increase in level, the bandits will get tougher although their armour remains mostly the same (watch out for tougher Bandits' weapons).
A thing that most new players overlook are the Standing Stones. When you started the game and exited the beginner cave, your companion will have highlighted 3 stones to you - the mage, the warrior and the thief. There are 10 other stones in Skyrim that give various benefits. Remember that you can only have one stone "active" at a time.
Also there is no pressure to continue either of the main quests. There are two: the civil war and the Dragon questline. Just go and explore.
Random info: The quest to watch out for: after level 14 you can meet a man in one of the inns (selected randomly). He will offer you a drinking game. Accept, it's a barrel of fun.
At level 51 I've still yet to complete either of the story arcs, I've progressed a little in each but not much. Still finding much to do. Employing the Battlemage setup.
Let us know how you get on. The UESP wiki will provide oodles of information.
Oh and the grind from 45 up is killing the game experience!
With 100 archery and some + archery items I can kill most things with 1 or 2 hits and dragons in under 10.
I have full dragon armour and am working on my deadric as we speak, its tedious!
Whilst in Skyrim my general rule was "unless you look like a plot point character, you are my prey, and I shall only permit thee to live if you benifit me".
Thus I ended up with a LOT of bounty on my head, and villages bereft of life after I swarmed through and burnt/chopped everyone down
