Do you think that you will have the option to make a decent living by crafting or hunting? In Oblivion, a deer's worth of venison was worth next to nothing. So do you think that they will increase the value of food and craftable items? It would be nice to have ways to make money that don't involve guilds or looting.
I think that selling weapons might help you make a living. Mine the ore, craft a weapon or armor piece, and sell it. Or you could enchant it and sell it for more.
So what do you think? Could you make a few thousand gold by crafting and hunting? Or will we have to join guilds and loot for a substantial amount of gold?
