Skyrim Had Secret Agent Chickens. You heard me.
The name is Chicken, just Chicken. So apparently the Skyrim devs kinda fudged up a bit with their Radiant Story feature which determines how characters interact with you. This glitch had something to do with Chickens. In an interview with PC Gamer, when asked if there was anything about the Radiant Story feature that surprised him Todd Howard said this:
Let’s see… something that was good lately… but this was a bug—lately we realised that chickens were reporting crimes. I found that very funny. That was just last week: ‘Why are we getting caught?’ ‘Oh, the CHICKENS are reporting the crimes!’
This would have been quite an interesting feature in the game, you would have to be extra sneaky to get by these chickens. Skyrim is just full of surprises and I just hope the other animals don’t spy on me during my gameplay. Either way I would never think of doing anything terrible in Skyrim *wink* *wink* I’ve actually done quite a lot of bad things in Morrowind. I killed Vivec once, or twice, killed Divayth Fyr once to get his Daedric Armor, and Rivur or whatever his name is in Balmora only to use his house for storage. Good thing there weren’t any chickens in that game, I would have Ordinators snapping at my heels all the way to Solstheim.
