In the snowy valley outside Winterhold, amidst hills and mountains galore, awash with foreign plant life and fantastical creatures eager to harm my character; I come face to face with a common wolf. It stares me down from a distance, growling and standing its ground, expressing discomfort and anger at the very sight of me, an unfamiliar antagonist trespassing upon its habitat. I maintain a cautionary range, readying my battle axe and hand full of fire, not necessarily eager to row with the snarling beast, but at least anticipating the necessity to defend myself.
