Twitter thread from 5/17/2021, in which Alarrah and Lydia do another road trip, this time to Solitude; in which Alarrah slays a dragon at the Western Watchtower, and battles multiple bandits; and in which she witnesses the execution of Roggvir in Solitude.
And also in which Alarrah’s player learns why it’s necessary to be careful when you’re reading books in a location you don’t own!
In Which the Dragonborn and Her Housecarl Set Out on Another Road Trip, Destination: Solitude— Angela Korra'ti (@annathepiper) May 17, 2021
1. Setting up all the furnishings in Breezehome in Whiterun pretty much blew away my entire stock of gold, so it was therefore time for a new road trip!
- I didn’t realize this at the time, but what very likely happened when I read that book in the Winking Skeever was that I hit (A) without realizing it, after I opened the book to read it. And the game counted that as stealing. Which I still think is kind of bullshit, just because I could argue that you’re not actually stealing the book if you don’t take it out of the inn with you! But I suppose that’d be harder to code than just checking to see if you’ve picked up an item that isn’t actually free to take. 😉
