The video was posted on Skyrim subreddit by player SnepALaCarte, and shows 30 seconds of their character being slowly and hilariously killed by the Greybeards. The clip begins in the middle of the fight, with three Greybeards beating SnepALaCarte with their fists, then freezing them with a scream. The player falls to the ground frozen in a block of ice as the Ancient Hermits continue to beat him. Once the scream is over, SnepALaCarte gets back up and is almost immediately frozen again. This pattern repeats more or less for the duration of the 30-second clip, but in the final seconds, the Greybeards decide to mix things up with some Fire Breath screams to end SnepALaCarte.

Cases like this are not uncommon in Skyrim, since NPCs will tend to attack the player even for minor infractions, such as accidentally hitting an NPC or, it’s well known, a chicken. In these cases, the city guard, and often nearby civilians, will gang up and try to kill the player character. One player was even attacked for telekinetically throwing a tomato. According to SnepALaCarte, the Greybeards took offense when their dog accidentally hit the controller and used a dragon cry on one of the nearby NPCs, triggering the beating.

Despite Skyrim‘s age, there’s still a huge fanbase for the game, and clips like this make it easy to see why. The game’s vast open world and deep RPG mechanics are a big part of that, but the unexpected NPC interactions are another big factor. There are a lot of hilarious clips from Skyrimand with Elder Scrolls 6 still not having a specific release date, it is likely that players will continue to play Skyrim and create more fun times for the community.
