In Which Shenner Quests Through Raldbthar and Alftand
As expected, I picked up where I left off after the last Shenner session, re-doing the beginning of Raldbthar, and proceeding on to finding the Aetherium Forge. And since I had time to do so, I proceeded to go pester Septimus Signus about his thoughts on where I could find an Elder Scroll. Spoiler alert: Alftand!
In Which Faanshi Goes to Alftand
Action for this session: acquiring a full set of ebony armor and weaponry for Jordis; going to Dragontooth Crater to take out the dragon there and get the Word of Power; and starting my run through Alftand, to get the Elder Scroll!
In Which Ysani Escapes Alftand With the Dragon Scroll
This session saw the conclusion of the run through Alftand, and the acquisition of the “Dragon” Elder Scroll, needed for both the main plot and for Dawnguard! And, epilogue with returning to Fort Dawnguard and following up on further plot pointers there.
In Which Ysani Searches for the Dragon Scroll
With this session, I boinged back to the main plot to seek out the “Dragon” Elder Scroll, the one specifically needed for the main plot but also for Dawnguard. Got in some action at the mage college, slew my first Revered Dragon this time, and began running Alftand with Serana as my backup.
In Which Ysani Saves Dawnstar from Nightmares
The main objective of this session was to run the Vaermina nightmare plot in Dawnstar, by way of getting ready to get the thaneship there. But I also worked on side quests for getting the thaneships in both Dawnstar and Winterhold, bought the land for Heljarchen Hall, and began the plot to seek Mehrunes’ Razor. Busy session all around!
In Which Delga Hunts for Schematics and Blood Samples
This session was more tying up of loose ends post-Dawnguard: hunting for more schematics for Sorine, visiting the Paragon Portal in the Forgotten Vale, and tracking down the remaining needed blood samples for Septimus.
And oh yes: getting the Oghma Infinium, and the next meeting with Hermaeus Mora!
In Which Delga Retrieves the Elder Scroll from Mzark
Big session! Major points: running Alftand, making it down into Blackreach to the Tower of Mzark, and getting the Elder Scroll; returning the Runed Lexicon to Septimus, and the first interaction with Hermaeus Mora; and, sadly, losing Ria of the Companions as my steward at Heljarchen Hall, as she was killed by bandits. Rest well in Sovngarde, Ria!
In Which Delga Rescues Priests and Hunts for Elder Scrolls
Continuing the Dawnguard quest line with this session! Got Dexion Evicus rescued, also got Florentius rescued, and proceeded to the parts of the plot where two more Elder Scrolls are needed above and beyond the one that Serana has. Conveniently, since I haven’t yet found the Elder Scroll for the main plot, this means I can get that done now too!
In Which Merawen Finds an Elder Scroll and the Oghma Infinium
I’m now to the point in Merawen’s playthrough that I’ve hit about all the unfamiliar stuff I expect to hit with this character. So unless further radiant quests send me to dungeons I haven’t run before, most if not all of Merawen’s coming posts will be territory Alarrah also covered.
What commentary I have in the posts will reflect that accordingly. I’ll focus just on talking about new-to-Merawen stuff.
In Which Merawen Visits Paarthurnax, Repairs the White Phial, and Seeks an Elder Scroll
A fair amount of plot action in this as I moved the main plot along, but also finished up the quest about the White Phial. And a lot of this was familiar territory–but not all of it!
Details as always behind the fold.
