I'm getting skyrim, and I don't know much about it. I want my character to be mostly focused on magic with a huge potential to learn a lot of spells and be good at magic as soon as I make him, yet at the same time, I want him to be stealthy. It's not as important as the magic aspect, but It would still be nice to have the element of surprise. I would like to use melee weapons too, but they don't need to be a top priority.

So magic is most important to me, followed by stealth, followed by melee.

Every character can do everything. Stats just start lower for some. For a sneaky mage with mage being your focus I'd go with a Dark Elf. They start at 20 for sneak, alchemy, illusion and alteration as well as 25 in destruction magic.

It sounds like you might want a High Elf. They gain 50 magicka at the get go and have an ability to boost regeneration speed of magicka.

I made a high elf the other day and she is beautiful. Such a beautiful race when they aren't being d bags.

But mine is exactly what you described. You should go for it.

GTA:V's single player is bad and you should feel bad for supporting it.

RACE IS IRRELEVANT PLAY WHICHEVER LOOKS THE COOLEST.

Ignore the plebs saying to play X race if you're doing Y role.

Race is irrelevant? That's definitely true. You might as well just erase the wood elf from existence. Nobody wants that thing around. Just ask Faendal.
