I’m now almost 12 hours in, and, yes, I’ve don’t nothing.
Technically, that isn’t actually completely true. There’s a lot of stuff I have done, just most of it isn’t relevant to the main quest. Take today, for instance. I set off from the inn just west of Imperial City, and headed across the water towards the city, and dumped my horse off at the stables there. I want to walk most places to bump up my stats, you see. Then I turned round, and went back to the inn, and then headed west-ish towards Kvatch.
On the way, I found and killed some wolves and crabs, found a Waypoint (which I think has activated something in all the temples around the place), harvested loads of mushrooms, plants, lilies and other stuff, found another set of ruins (guarded by some sort-of goblins that shoot fire), found a mage who seemed to have killed a traveler (so I killed him), cut down some flying imps, and concocted loads of potions.
And I still haven’t made it even half-way to Kvatch…
