I feel like playing Skyrim again (after taking a break for a little while due to mods being deleted and old Xbox One screwing up, playing other games in my backlog since), and I'm planning to start with a new character. What would be the best place to start in your opinion besides the vanilla start at Helgen? Also Happy New Year guys!

i went with a vampire start, but it's also depends what race you wanna play since many have race specific starts

Highelf - Part of the aldmari dominion
Orc- Part of Stronghold
Berton - Part of forwsworn

ect
Merry Christmas

A hearthfire house start. Nothing wrong with starting out and having a player home ready to go

For me, beginning as a warlock thrall. Is challenging, but not frustrating as starting as robbed and left for death or, worst, as a necromancer in Blackreach.

I sneak around to get a few items avoiding to be spotted by the warlock and then carefully exit the cave to start with nothing but the meager loot, monk robes, a dagger and a 22% mana resist ring. Then I finally make it to Shor Stone, take care of the spiders in the mine with just a fire spell/pickaxe and with that reward smith some decent armor/weapon. From there I make my way to Riften so I can start the Book of Love first thing.

After trying all the options, this start became my favorite. Some might be immersive, but way too easy.

Two times I tried to fight the warlock before leaving but failed miserably, so went back later to get my revenge.

Camping in the Woods is what I chose. Starts you between Helgen and Riverwood with basic Fur Armour. Very close to Vanilla Start but quicker.
HOLY ****! What is this? Forged in Gods very flames! Do mine eyes tell me lies? A new Elder Scrolls game?
Time is nigh, I must fly, Venture forth on my quest!

Friends,

I did the option "surprise me" so it just picked random. It was pretty cool, because I had no idea what was going on.

But you have to get BACK to helgen...and stuff around helgen is very low level. So its a very good place to start.

Remember to get back to helgen right away, so things do not get messed up. Good luck.

Why do you have to go back to Helgen? Does the main quest not start unless you trigger the Alduin attack?
The petty squabbles of lesser men and the common rabble are of no greater concern to my grand design.

You ask in any Inn for rumors (turn on subtitles). It will direct you to Helgen. Once you are close to the gate you'll see Alduin flying and you'll have to retrieve a journal from a body. Reading the journal will trigger the quest to investigate the cave. Inside the cave you'll see both Hardvar and Ralof. Pick one, give him a potion and leave. Then you do the usual things (Riverwood, Whiterun, talk to the Jarl).

Used this mod to fit into a roleplay with Inigo. Using the attacked and left for dead option made meeting Inigo so much more satisfying :p
