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!
Here are all the posts about our Skyrim Together playthrough! These are dynamically updated, so a new post should appear here when it goes up. They’re listed in descending date order, so the newest posts should always appear first. Also, note the pagination controls after the first five posts. You can page through to see the older ones.
- In Which Three Dragonborns Quest for the Thieves Guild - 04/10/2023In 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.
- In Which the Dragonborn Trio Joins the Thieves Guild - 12/12/2022In which Rhanys, Luciriel, and Kitty set out from Whiterun; fight mages at Fort Amol; brawl with a beggar at Shor's Stone; fight bandits at Fort Greenwall; and pass Brynjolf's tests for admittance into the Thieves Guild.
- In Which Skyrim Together is Slightly Less Weird This Time - 11/28/2022In which Luciriel, Kitty, and Rhanys clear Dustman's Cairn of draugr, Bleakwind Basin of giants (but not mammoths), and Valtheim Tower of bandits; and in which they obtain Nettlebane and a sap sample from the Eldergleam, to restore the Gildergreen in Whiterun.
- In Which Skyrim Together is More of a Mess Than the First Time - 10/11/2022In which Luciriel, Kitty, and Rhanys clear out Sleeping Giant Camp and Broken Fang Cave; see Ri'saad's Khajiit STILL trying to leave Whiterun; see Luciriel's armor completely vanish, and Uthgerd apparently resurrect from her fatal brawl; and are defeated in further adventuring by Discord.
- In Which Skyrim Together Reborn is certainly a thing - 10/02/2022In which Skyrim Together Reborn happens, with a party consisting of myself, Dara, and Dara's gamer pal Mel! Result: general shenanigans, hilarity, and HOW EVEN DOES THIS RUN AT ALL. 😀
