There are many different ways to play through Skyrim: Archery, Stealth, Magic, Swords, Hammers, the list goes on and on. Of course, when you consider the fact that you’re playing as a legendary hero who battles an almost primordial evil, there’s one weapon that doesn’t really fit in with all the rest.

Can You Beat Skyrim With Only A Fork?? (in text form)
The first part of any Skyrim playthrough is waking up and realizing that you’re riding towards your death. This is where things took a strange turn. There was something off. I just couldn’t put my finger on exactly what it was. You might consider this bad, but I think otherwise. How often you do you get to do barrel rolls in a wooden cart being pulled by a horse?
Things settled down, we arrived in Helgen, and it was time to create my character. This doesn’t matter all that much. I chose an Orc as my race because they’re my preferred race. Yeah, that’s right, I’m an orc-supremacist. Don’t like it? Tough cookies. Also they’ve got Berserker Rage which will come in handy later. The dragon arrived, I escaped to Helgen Keep, got my hands cut, and the game begins. Believe it or not, there are 2 kinds of Forks in Skyrim. Utensils and Weapons. The utensil forks are relatively common. The weapon forks are not. And there’s no way to know which is which until you pick it up and look in your inventory. But that’s okay because more important than forks is the bucket on the table. It will make a fine addition to my collection.
Alright, let’s real quickly go over a few things about this run. This is a Fork Only Playthrough, which means I can only attack enemies with a fork, that doesn’t mean I can’t wear armor, use shield to block attacks, or use spells to heal myself. An enemy must only be damaged by a fork. The only other way is if they set off traps and damage themselves. But that’s akin to an NPC running off a cliff, it’s not really something I have any control over.
Back to the game, avoiding the enemies in Helgen Keep wasn’t all that difficult. I looted stuff, found another bucket, taunted the bear, realized bears are shockingly quick, escaped the cave, activated a Stone, swam with the fishies, and was off to Riverwood. There I sold most of my stuff to the Riverwood Trader, obviously kept my 5 buckets, and the search for a fork begins. According to the Wiki, there are only a handful of weapon forks in the entire game, including DLCs. One of which is near High Hrothgar, so that’s where I was going.
Normally you would take the 17 steps up there, but I’m stubborn and refuse to adhere to social norms, so I’m not going to take the steps. I’m going on a mountain climbing adventure! The initial journey to the base of the mountain was pretty easy. A little ways up the mountain it started to rain, and nothing makes climbing a snowy mountain easier than freezing rain and lightning. I continued climbing. Then I climbed some more. After successfully climbing for a few minutes, I rewarded myself with more climbing. About 10 minutes later I arrived at High Hrothgar.
The fork is located beyond the courtyard, and the front door is locked. Unfortunate. Luckily, I just thinking about how cool it would be to go mountain climbing, so I took the easy path to the courtyard by going around the temple. Master Ernie didn’t have much to say to me. But the fork was now closer to my possession than ever before. I watched a tutorial and discovered that it would be harder than I previously thought to get aforkmentioned utensil. I must pass the chilly breeze of mild discomfort after which I would find my treasure beneath a wooden bridge.
