I'm really enjoying it so far. After finishing that DLC I spent most of last night in Rattay learning how to pickpocket, practiced picking locks (mouse and keyboard), and getting a feel for the town. I didn't even really quest, save for unlocking the fence so I could steal stolen goods...which I did a lot of. I did manage to incur my first crime though. I had a small sidequest to steal $50 from a guard. I decided to wait till nightfall, only to find the guards in the town didn't approve of me slinking around town without a torch. Apparently that's a law, pretty interesting detail! I made it into the house of the guard, snuck upstairs only to have him wakeup often as I tried to pickpocket him because my Sneak was too low. I ended up having to knock his ass out, but apparently he saw me before I put him to sleep...should have killed him. When I came back to town the next day they wanted to charge me $200 for beating someone up. I told them I was broke, which was a lie, so they threw me in the clink for 10 days. I kept the cash and all I really lost was some nourishment and energy. Made a pretty penny selling off the guard's armor too.
I really want to get into some of the Skills deeper. I've used Pickpocket and Lockpicking a bit, but I want to play with Hunting and some of the others too. I spent quite a bit of time sharpening/repairing weapons on the grindstone last night working on the Maintenance Skill. Took a bit to get the rhythm and angle down, but it increases the value of weapons when you sell them off and it's free so...I think I'll be doing that a lot.
I'm really impressed with how deep this game is. Obviously you don't have to do everything, but I've been having fun just existing in the world and finding ways to make cash.
