As the upcoming comic strip points out, there are times during Skyrim when you absolutely, positively have to heal--normally, this occurs when you get surrounded by enemies. Unfortunately, it's these harrowing times when you realize you forgot to stock up on potions, leaving you very few options, save for eating like you were Kobayashi.

In other Skyrim news, if you haven't seen it yet, over at Bethesda's blog, they're teasing the upcoming Skyrim DLC, Dawnguard.
