    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.

    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 the Dragonborn Hunts for Crimson Nirnroot

    After the big excitement of the last session I wanted to take a break from the main plot, so I went to do the side quest triggered when I found the crimson nirnroot down in Blackreach. Which meant needing to return to Blackreach! And after that, I went to High Hrothgar to have a word with Master Arngeir about Current Events.

    Highlights and details behind the fold!

    In Which the Dragonborn Hunts for an Elder Scroll

    This session was another long crunchy one, because on the night before a PTO day, I can stay up till stupid-o’clock playing Skyrim! 😀

    The main goal of this session was to find Septimus Signus and learn from him how to find an Elder Scroll. This required me to first find the guy, which was itself kind of challenging. Then I had to follow his request to take a Blank Lexicon to a particular Dwemer ruin, get it filled with data out of the Elder Scroll there, and bring the Lexicon back to him!

    I’m going to go ahead and put even the highlights list behind the More tag, because the bullet points by themselves are long and spoilery!
