I'm playing Oblivion and have some questions. Just so you know where I am, I just found the location of the Dragon Shrine but haven't started the quest yet. I just finished the Order of the Virtuous Blood sidequest (the one where the guy tells you some other guy is a vampire but that guy tells you the guy you just talked to is the real vampire and you kill him in those caves). I have 2 questions right now: 1) I have a little over 3,000 gold. I want to buy a house so I can put my stuff in there and it be safe. I have the Battlehorn castle expansion and have to upgrade that house. Should I get an upgrade so I can store my weapons in the private quarters there or go buy a house somewhere else? I know there is one in the Imperial City which is a more convenient location. 2) Is there a 'safe' chest to store my items in the mean time? I lost all my items in another file. I had to restart from Day 18 (I was at Day 27 in my other one and got far in the Thieves guild). I've been switching my items between the 2 barrels outside Weynon Priory (I hope switching them resets the 7-day limit I have to store them there). I am in the process of putting them in the crate outside of Wawnett Inn (the Inn by the bridge to the Imperial City). 3) Will Kvatch ever be returned to normal? I killed all the scamps in the main castle. I hadn't before and went back to kill them to make sure it didn't effect Kvatch being rebuilt. 4) Is there a way to get a lot of money easily? I've lately been finding cloth and silverware and selling it. The vampire dust I got in the last mission really helped. Anymore of them? 5) What are some good expansions worth getting? I know Shivering Isles and Knights of Nine is good. I'm going to get the Game of the Year edition for Christmas (I'm borrowing my friend's game right now). Any of the smaller ones worth getting? I will have some more as I play the game.
