    Il back up miraaks comment. Despite I wil never play this kind of build it radiates good roleplay and a solid play.

    Thanks for the support Miraak, glad you enjoyed it!

    I loved the classes from previous games, while I know why Bethesda decided to take them out, it still made me sad. Even though it was just a name, having to choose a profession really defines a character, I'm happy that mine reads well and hopefully it'll put a small bit of that character defining identity back into the Elder Scrolls.

    Google Image search and youtubing "Two Steps From Hell" doesn't seem that hard, I dunno why more people don't do that lol

    Cool build, I love the roleplay element, which is my favourite part of any build. It might just be me, but I don't think you've listed any equipment choices. I'd typically use Steel Plate or Heavy Dawnguard. I'll have to play as a fallen Knight, as I can never stick to the rules well. +1

    And that music is sick!

    Simple, effective game play coupled with simple and effective rp. +1. When the music started, my immediate reaction was 'urgh'. But I actually rather like it now I've heard it played through. There's nothing in this build that one would describe as innovative, but there's no reason there needs to be, is there. If anything the simplicity is part of the charm. Weapon in one hand, shield in the other, now get out there and be honourable champ, we're rooting for ya.

    I don't know why but I always imagine knights as two-handers...

    Though I would want to use greatswords instead of light weaponry, it's a really good build in my humble opinion. +1 (also you might want to tag it: "Character Build Knight")

    I didn't focus too much on this because there is no enchanting. I went over it in the Smithing section, saying that you'll have more than enough options because you're levelling smithing to 100. The important thing is to not use daedric weapons because a knight considers them an abomination against the Divines. 

    Steel Plate is probably what the archetypal knight would wear, good call on that one. I used the hell out of this armor set when I reached Smithing level 50!
