Ahhh.... I'm no longer a Vampire and I got the cure without cheating!!! It took forever though because of all the disadvantages of being vampy. I had to cut one of those reptile looking people where as the cure called for some of their blood. Well, this started one of the craziest chases I've ever been in. I found this reptile person at a mage's guild and had to slice him with a certain dagger. Then, all at once, everybody in the guild ( 5 of them ) start trying to kill me. I only needed his blood so I didn't have to kill him. So, I got what I needed and ran like hell. As soon as I went outside the mage guild, all the palace guards were after me too. Also, when you're a vampire, you can't fast travel during the day because you're always taking damage due to sunlight. I had to go all the way to the other side of the map to bring the blood back to the witch by the river. I said "SCREW IT" and on my way out of town, I stole a horse to make the fast get away. Now I'm back to good! I do have on hell of a bounty on my head though.
I think this is why we love this game so much. There are stories that are generated out of the open endedness of a game that let's you do practicly anything or go anywhere. Big thumbs up!!!
