So? What is your bogey team in Skyrim and other TES games? Of course the early games can´t compete with the newer games graphics, what increases the fear factor.

So, I start:

There are some arachnophobic people out there who are afraid of spiders. Well, me not. I smack them, and they die, as they aren´t hard enemies. What really gives me a chill down the spine are Falmers and Vampires. I mean... I can understand Bandits, Forsworn and evil wizards in their caves or castles in the wilderness. They want your loot or to be left alone. I even understand the undead Draugr and the Dwemer machines. They guard their dungeons and want to kill you as an intruder. But Falmers and Vampires... well, they literally want to eat you up. The places they hide in are dark and creepy, blood trinkles from the ceiling. They skulk their halls in an unhuman way, like wild beast. When suddenly a Falmer jumps out of these cocoon thingies... AAHHHH! Entering their caves or castles is like a rabbit entering the fox´s den.


Who controls the Septim crown?
Who keeps the Allesian Heresy down?
We do, we do

Who knocked Yokuda off the maps?
Who keeps the Dwemer under wraps?
We do, we do

I find Hagravens creepy and they are powerful too...Spriggans are also creepy creatures!


Buoyant Armigers

May the periphery of ancient wisdom remain merciful with those who deny the darkness...

Spiders. Though they are easy to kill they still creep me out, the way they crawl towards you and the fact they are huge doesn't make thing any better! I'm just glad there aren't spiders that big in real life!

meh. never realy got creeped out by any enemy in TES.
as for disgusting.

Nyx hounds kinda apply. Not realy because they are THAT disgusting but the idea that they are a regular meat source is.
The same applies to kwama. Why would you eat that? Eat a fucking cliffracer.

Don't know about creepiest , probably be Hagravens in Skyrim.
In Oblivion i would say the Zombie at the beginning just weren't prepared for it , then i somehow wound up in crowhaven and got chased by an overpowered Lord Lovidicus i ran all the way to Anvil were the guards killed him for me lol

I thought the idea of the Morrowind dreughs in the water were pretty frightening. Tentacled sea monsters with pinchers that would drag you into the depths of the sea and tear you apart. The way they move seemed very unnatural to me, and when I first started playing Morrowind whenever I saw one beneath the water I was like "Ahh... not going in there."

The wraiths in Oblivion made pretty unsettling sounds. First time I met one I freaked out and ran out of the dungeon I think, not sure if I had a silver+ weapon either. Zombies in Oblivion were also pretty gross looking, the gore on them and the way they shambled towards you.

Skyrim didn't have anything that got to me; but then again I'm over being uncomfortable around the dreughs, wraiths, and zombies too. I may have just grown up though, or I may have developed the philosophy of just hitting the thing until it's not scary anymore.

The Dreughs as seen in Daggerfall were pretty bad, too, especially with all those... things sprouting out of their back. >_<

The big thing that got to me from Morrowind, though, were the Corprus beasts. Not only their appearance, especially the Ascended Sleepers, but the whole idea of the Divine Disease slowly and incurably taking away both one's body and mind is just not a pleasant thing in general.

I also have to agree about the zombies in Oblivion, too, especially the headless ones...

Aw man, forgot about the Corprus beasts! Although they're not exactly zombies, they're visually the same as them. Definitely had me either running or nervously holding my ground when I was against them before.

The darkened house in Ald-Ruhn bugged me out. When they told me to go in there, I was like, "...yeah, I'll um... do that later..."

Don't come to Australia, just a heads up.

Now fear of fighting - Greater Bone Walkers in Morrowind, the perma reduce strength has the capability of destroying you forever if ill prepared. (You are over-encumbered and cannot move... Ever again.)

As for creepy, I going to go with pretty much everyone in the 6th House.

I never like Silt Striders from Morrowind... remind me of ticks that I on occasion have to take off my dog. And i find them disgusting... Even more so when they are the size of a house and people ride them. lol


Duty is heavier than a mountain. Death...lighter than a feather.

I have no fear, for I AM the fox.

Not really beasts but the guys at Hackdirt were pretty creepy. Reminds me of the Hollow Man...

I think I was round 7 or 8 when I first played Morrowind. i found most of the sith house creepy but most of all was the corpser. First time i saw the corpser Beasts was in the basement of the counclers house in Ald'ruhn, scared the crap out of me. The dark room with a dim light produced from red candles, a dead corpse laying at the base of the stairs, those sixth house statues, and the moaning and shuffling of a unknown beast.

then in oblivion a found the zombies there disgusting and disturbing....
