Skyrim Together Playthrough

This is the page for play sessions in Skyrim Together Reborn, a mod that allows you to play Skyrim with friends in a party. In September 2022, my wife Dara, her friend Mel, and I started playing with this mod just to see what kind of play experience it gives! Answer: so far, kind of hilarious.

I’m not going to go into as much character roleplay depth in this playthrough as I’m doing on my main Skyrim playthroughs. The reason for this is that the point is more to play with friends, so I’m taking this a bit less seriously than I do the main posts. So I’m not going to worry about developing a backstory or anything for the character I’m using for this.

(But I will note that I’m playing a character called Luciriel, named after the queen of the Unseelie Court in my Free Court of Seattle books! She’s an Altmer, and I’ll be playing her primarily as a mage.)

Nonetheless, I wanted to write about it, just so I can share the experiences of how it goes!

  • In Which the Dragonborns Are Betrayed By Their Guildmaster - 07/31/2023
    In which the Dragonborns venture into Snow Veil Sanctum with Mercer Frey, only to discover their Guildmaster is a treacherous bastard; agree to help Karliah get a certain journal translated; and break into a Dwemer museum to get info for that journal. Also in which Luciriel's player has game breakage and has to re-run all of the same action solo. THANKS, GAME!
  • In Which the Dragonborns Interrupt a Ritual and Infiltrate a Warehouse - 06/19/2023
    In which the Dragonborns interrupt a summoning ritual in Wolfskull Cave; steal some wine for an Argonian, and then trail him through the East Empire Company Warehouse and Brinewater Grotto; extinguish a lighthouse fire; and report back to the Thieves Guild with what they learned from Gulum-Ei.
  • In Which the Dragonborns Slay Malkoran and a Couple Other NPCs While They’re At It - 05/12/2023
    In which the trio of Dragonborns finds Malkoran a tough foe in Kilkreath, but take him out after much effort and acquire Dawnbreaker; acquire the Wabbajack from Sheogorath, with rather less effort; and acquire a horse and a house, or at least for ONE of them, in Whiterun.
  • In Which the Dragonborns Try Very Hard to Deliver a Beacon - 04/24/2023
    In which the trio of Dragonborns try to help Largashbur with a giant problem, but are rebuffed; in which there are a stupid number of bears and vampires; in which we have our asses handed to us by a dragon and a dragon priest; and in which getting into the Kilkreath Ruins to recover Dawnbreaker proves _surprisingly_ difficult.
  • In Which Three Dragonborns Quest for the Thieves Guild - 04/10/2023
    In which Rhanys, Luciriel, and Kitty raid the Goldenglow Estate to lean on its owner; fight bandits just outside Riften; sabotage the Honningbrew Meadery; and trigger a surprise melee between Whiterun guards and Eorlund Gray-Mane at the Skyforge.
