In Which Faanshi Defeats Ahzidal, Miraak and Alduin
As predicted, I spent another couple of sessions finishing up Faanshi’s playthrough so I could free the Switch for running Survival Mode! This therefore is Faanshi’s last session post, covering both of the sessions I did with her.
Main actions in this pair of sessions: defeating Miraak in Apocrypha, Ahzidal in Kolbjorn Barrow, and Alduin in Sovngarde!
In Which Faanshi Does More Side Questing
Another double session post, in which I’m basically finishing up the most critical things to do on Solstheim before I go after Miraak. Main actions: clearing White Ridge Barrow and Benkongerike, and getting both of the Black Books there; and also, clearing Vahlok’s Tomb.
In Which Faanshi Discovers Miraak’s Hold on Solstheim
ESO has really been dominating my gaming time now that I’ve started playing it, because it’s the cool new kid in my gaming town. But I did jump back to Skyrim a bit, because I don’t want to abandon my playthroughs in progress! So I moved the Dragonborn plotline a little further along with my Khajiit Faanshi on the Switch.
In Which Faanshi Makes an Impact in Raven Rock
Very busy session, in which I did all of the general “establish myself in Raven Rock” plots, which gave me access to Severin Manor. So, running the plot for the mine, taking out Falx Carius at Fort Frostmoth, and foiling the plot to assassinate Councilor Morvayn!
In Which Shenner Defeats Miraak in Apocrypha
I went ahead with the rough plan to go ahead and take out Miraak before finishing off my various other actions on Solstheim. Partly to switch it up for once, and partly because it kind of felt appropriate this time through, as part of Shenner’s version of the “help the island of Solstheim” narrative.
But that was the main action! The rest was going to Fahlbtharz to reforge Trueflame, clearing White Ridge Barrow, and taking care of more side quests at Tel Mithryn.
In Which Ysani Defeats Vahlok, Karstaag, and Miraak
This post covers play done on Friday 4/29 and Saturday 4/30! And these are the final two sessions for Solstheim in Ysani’s run, as the Saturday night session saw Ysani’s successful takedown of Miraak in Apocrypha. Also defeated: Vahlok the Jailor and Karstaag the ghost frost giant!
In Which Ysani Invests in Merchants and Slays Ildari Sarothril
This double session post covers play done on Monday 4/25 and Tuesday 4/26. Main action: a lot of investing in merchants when I unlocked the right perks in Speech! Finishing Kolbjorn Barrow! Confronting and slaying Neloth’s mad apprentice Ildari Sarothril! And committing to Team Rieklings, in the question of who needs to control Thirsk Mead Hall!
And as always, lots and lots of dragons, as well as rearranging perk points after setting a couple of things Legendary!
In Which Ysani Seeks a Black Book and a New Source of Stalhrim
This post covers play done on Tuesday 4/19 and Wednesday 4/20. Main action: running Nchardak with Neloth and Argis! Hunting for Deathbrand treasure–and stalhrim, after queuing up the fun side quests available in the Skaal village!
And of course, fighting dragons and dealing with that soul-sniping asshole Miraak.
In Which Ysani Slays an Undead General and Solves a Mine Mystery
Single session post this time! With a lot of action packed into it, cleansing the Earth Stone by Raven Rock, killing the undead general sending ash spawn after Raven Rock, and solving the mystery of what happened to Gratian Caerellius in Raven Rock Mine.
In Which Delga Defeats the First Dragonborn
As expected, this session let me take out Miraak and save Solstheim! Go me!
