2021 was the year I became a Skyrim player. I’d long known about the game. My household has always been a gaming household, and both my wife and our housemate played Skyrim multiple times on the various consoles we own when it originally came out: XBOX, PS3, PS4, and even VR.

Up until 2021 though I had never been a console player. I much prefer playing games on my own computer, or on my mobile devices. In 2021, though, I finally got a Nintendo Switch.

And that gave me the opportunity to finally play Skyrim for myself. I jumped into it wholeheartedly, blazing through multiple playthroughs. This entertained friends on social media sites who’d played Skyrim before, encouraging several of them to pick up playing again, and a couple other folks who’d never played before to start playing as well.

This site, a subsection of my primary annathepiper.org site, is the landing page for all my Skyrim adventures, rounded up in one place–and as of August 2022, other adventures in the Elder Scrolls games as well. It’s dedicated to all my online friends who’ve been entertained by these adventures!

Click or tap on the hamburger control on the left of the main menu bar to bring up a sidebar. There you should see a list of categories organizing posts in broad areas: character playthroughs, as well as the Skyrim DLC content, Dawnguard and Dragonborn.

Tag Cloud

I tag all my posts based on locations visited in each session, and in some cases significant characters involved.

Significant characters may include named dragons, Jarls, other faction leaders, or any other character who has impact on a plot. Or who just entertains me enough to warrant their own tag!
