In Which Shenner Acquires Auriel’s Bow and Slays Lord Harkon
Just to go back and revisit Skyrim for a bit, here’s the next post in Shenner’s playthrough!
Double session post, in which I finish up the end of Dawnguard in Shenner’s run. Main action: speed-running Forgotten Vale so I could get Auriel’s Bow, and then heading off to Castle Volkihar to take out Serana’s father.
In Which Shenner Heads to the Forgotten Vale
Couple of sessions combined into one post, with the overall theme of “Shenner and Serana head to the Forgotten Vale in search of Auriel’s Bow”.
In Which Shenner Goes Adventuring for the Dawnguard
And now, some catchup in regular Skyrim! I’ve gotten in periodic Shenner sessions while playing a bunch of ESO, advancing her through the Dawnguard plotline when I can.
So here’s a catchup post about going to Ruunvald with her to rescue Florentius, returning to Castle Volkihar and running the Soul Cairn, retrieving schematics for Sorine, and then running Ancestor Glade to get the location of Auriel’s Bow.
In Which Shenner Saves a Moth Priest for the Dawnguard
Double session post, mostly all about moving the Dawnguard plot along. With bonus brief return to Solstheim!
In Which Shenner Marries Rulnik and Joins the Dawnguard
Now that Shenner’s done running Dragonborn, time to swing back around and run Dawnguard! But first: a stop in Riften to finally marry her loyal follower, Rulnik!
In Which Faanshi Gains Auriel’s Bow and Defeats Lord Harkon
Double session post! This sees Faanshi finishing up Dawnguard, by finishing her run through Forgotten Vale, getting Auriel’s Bow, and then taking it back to the Dawnguard to rally them to accompany her and Serana to Castle Volkihar. And take down Lord Harkon!
In Which Faanshi Continues Through Forgotten Vale
Previous playthroughs established that getting through the Forgotten Vale is a multi-session endeavor, and this time was no exception! Still, Faanshi and Serana made good progress, reached a couple more of the Wayshrines, and took out the twin dragons under the ice.
In Which Faanshi Ventures Into the Forgotten Vale
With this session, I began my favorite part of Dawnguard! Yes folks, it’s back to the Forgotten Vale!
This was a work night session, so I didn’t actually get in through the Vale very far. And this will be a somewhat short post. But I’m going ahead and posting it just to clear the queue!
In Which Faanshi Becomes Mora’s Champion and Adopts a Daughter
This session was mostly all about tying up loose ends and whittling down the inventory before I throw myself headlong into looking for Auriel’s Bow in Forgotten Vale. Notably, I got the Oghma Infinium–and also a daughter, as I adopted Sofie of Windhelm!
In Which Faanshi Finds the Location of Auriel’s Bow and a Lot of Schematics
I had thought I was going to proceed onward to Forgotten Vale in this session, once I got the location of Auriel’s Bow in Ancestor Glade. I was mistaken! Instead, I ran the rest of Sorine’s “find me a schematic” quests.
