Play without violence?
is it possible to play without fighting and stuff like that with the Hearth dlc? I don't really like violence...but I still want gold to buy things

No. This is unfortunately not Fallout, and by Fallout I don't mean FO3, the original/NV.

You can make armor and jewelry and sell it, make potions and sell them, hunt and sell the fur or chop wood. It would be slow going at first, but you could make enough to build your house, etc.

However, you really can't complete very many quests without killing something at least indirectly. The ability to play a non-violent characters is something sadly missing from modern RPGs.

If you poke around Workshop or Nexus, I'm pretty sure that there are mods that will help.

It will be hard, but you can read this story :)

Ok i see, since killing is mandatory, maybe I can play with a companion and play as a healer?

i also found some mods on steamworks that might be helpful...^^ so far i found the merchant mod that lets me open up my own shop to get gold and some graphic/audio mods

I also read "An Illusionist in skyrim" that might be fun to do but im not sure im experienced enough to do it lol

thank you for the input everyone :)

I love your idea OP. Trying to play a character that won't kill...now that is challenging (if it's even possible).

just get the UFO mod and recruit a few warrior a few mage's, an archer and you will be good to go. its not impossible to have a non-violent charachter, you just need to let your follower's do all the work then give them all the mead they can drink at the local tavern afterward's.

I don't mean to trample on anyone, but I don't really see how you can play Skyrim while being morally against violence. It's one thing if you're doing it for the challenge, but morally? Skyrim just isn't the game for you then.

About 90% of the loot is either weapons, which you use to kill people, or armor, which protects you while you kill people. The rest is gold, which you use to buy weapons and armor, or materials to make weapons and armor. Potions are used to enhance your killing power or keep you alive whilst killing, or to better the crafts which you use to create tools of killing. Basically, everything in this game comes down to making you a better killer overall.

I can't say that I'm against you for not wanting violence (I have a carry permit, but I pray every day that I don't need to use it). But if you're that much against violence that you can't even tolerate it in a game, then Skyrim really isn't the game for you.

that would be rather challenging , but yes it would be very do-able , cast calm spells to sooth the bad guys , sell potions armor and weapons to make coin , i guess you would be playing full RPG , the heck with the story and the quest lines , just build your self a niche in the skyrim world, might be fun , max out your speech too , so you can partner up in the stores , good luck and post back on how its working out

Of course if you don't kill anything Dragons and Vampires (provided you have Dawnguard) will slowly kill off a lot of NPCs. You may find yourself the sole inhabitant of Skyrim one fine day. ;)

like i said, get UFO, get follower's, get them to slay thing's, give them ton's of drinking money, party, then repeat the entire process, lol.

if you dont plan on killing anything there's no reason to enable dawnguard , or dragonborn , you never kill the 1st dragon , you dont learn the shouts , you dont play the game , you just exist in the game world

hmmm i don't think so

its not possible per se .. but there are mods that let you choose where you start, so you can simply wander about without a questline, and hence make your own story.

I agree. This is a game of violence against "bad guys" and "bad animals". If you want to RPG without violence, I recomend RolePlaying WoW or Second Life (If that game is still around). Although I do understand why you would want to play this game without violence for that scenery and more.
