In Which Gyllerah Goes Hunting for a Vampire Lord
A bunch of my recent posts for Gyllerah have been multi-session ones, but this one is just for a single session, which I want to go ahead and get out of my queue. So here’s her play on the 23rd, featuring the Signal Fire Sprint, not one but two harrowstorms, and an unsuccessful hunt for a vampire lord!
In Which Shenner Quests Through Blackreach
As expected, this session was pretty much the one for running Blackreach. Found all the crimson nirnroot, and got the Elder Scroll! And picked fights with a lot of Falmer.
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 Finds Crimson Nirnroot and an Elder Scroll
This session was all about running Blackreach, and trying to do it all in one go so I wouldn’t have to come back down later. Which meant, getting all the crimson nirnroot before finally going to the Tower of Mzark for the Elder Scroll. And as a bonus treat, this time around I actually summoned and fought the dragon Vulthuryol!
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 Seeks Crimson Nirnroot and Slays Dragons
This session was mostly all about returning to Blackreach and getting the rest of the crimson nirnroot (and, in the process, discovering that at least one bug in Skyrim does have a viable workaround!).
Wound up also having two different dragon encounters that resulted in NPC death and from which I rolled back. And I started the quest to get Volendrung as well.
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 Delga Hunts for Crimson Nirnroot
This session was mostly all about returning to Blackreach to hunt for crimson nirnroot, an activity that I think Delga’s player enjoyed more than Delga herself.
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 Merawen Hunts Crimson Nirnroot, the Pale Lady, Bandits, and Bears
This session got a little more random than I planned going in! But this was kind of cool regardless, as I did some wandering around on foot to try to see if I could have anything interesting happen–and to get opportunities to exercise the Heavy Armor skill. I was pleased to find at least one totally brand new location I never saw during Alarrah’s run!
With the exception of finding the Lunar Forge, though, this was all familiar territory. So again, I’ll be focusing on the bits that were different this time vs. what happened when Alarrah did them.
