    In Which Finds-The-Way Slays Sahloknir and Joins the Thieves Guild

    A three-session post, just to clear my queue! Primary action here is slaying Sahloknir at Kynesgrove, and also joining the Thieves Guild! With a bunch of side action involving bear hunting, getting the plot started at Largashbur, raiding Lost Valley Redoubt for the Word of Power there, and finding out where the location is for some of the Anniversary Edition content I haven’t actually run yet.

  • Skyrim,  Skyrim Together Playthrough

    In Which the Dragonborns Are Betrayed By Their Guildmaster

    A long-overdue Skyrim Together post, literally a month after we had this session! Did I mention I’m way, way behind on getting my playthrough posts up?

    Main action in this is Thieves Guild stuff, and specifically the part where Mercer Frey’s true colors are revealed, and the Dragonborn then has to break into a museum. Fun times!

    Heaping side helping, though, of my having to replay everything we did in this session solo because my game broke. Oof.

  • Kendis Playthrough,  Skyrim

    In Which Kendis Joins the Dawnguard and Seeks Elder Scrolls

    Main action in these sessions: getting started with Dawnguard, and in fact making serious inroads on the plot, getting all the way through running the Soul Cairn and getting Valerica’s Elder Scroll. And in between all of this, I kept bouncing back to Whiterun trying to spawn the Traveler. Which did in fact finally help me solve the problem with Carlotta and Mila being stuck!

    Meanwhile, I also picked up the thaneship in Winterhold! For free, pretty much, since I’d already helped enough people and had put the new Jarl into power by way of winning the war.

    And last but not least, I got onto the trail of finding the Dragon scroll, needed not only for Dawnguard, but for the main plot as well.

  • Shenner Playthrough

    In Which Shenner Acquires Thaneships, a Unicorn, and a Goblin

    Extremely eventful session! Shenner picked up thaneships in Morthal and Riften, tracked down and tamed a unicorn, rescued a goblin from imprisonment by a false god, and retrieved a set of Daedric mail!

    (And if you’re going, “Hey Anna, I thought you were alternating between Faanshi and Shenner,” you are correct! But this time I wanted two back to back Shenner sessions, because I wanted closure with Movarth.)

  • Faanshi Playthrough

    In Which Faanshi Joins the Bards College

    Busy session! This one was all about running Dead Men’s Respite and bringing King Olaf’s verse back to the Bard’s College, and accomplishing the first of the “go get an instrument” quests. With a side helping of starting the museum quest in Dawnstar, taking out a bandit chief at Broken Helm Hollow, and coming to the attention of Brynjolf in Riften!

  • Ysani Playthrough

    In Which Ysani Brings Ingjard to the Blades

    This is nominally a double session post—I say nominally, because while this post covers play done on Thursday 5/5 and Friday 5/6, Friday’s play session was super short.

    Main action: getting Ingjard of the Dawnguard on deck as a follower, and taking her through Forelhost before presenting her as a recruit for the Blades. And then hiring Vorstag in Markarth, and beginning to take him through Ragnvald.

  • Dawnguard,  Delga Playthrough,  Dragonborn

    In Which Delga Escapes from Bloodskal Barrow and Finds More Schematics for the Dawnguard

    This post is for play done while my house internet was down, and accordingly, I posted the first version of this to Dreamwidth directly without crossposting. The Dreamwidth version of this post is here.

    This is my Skyrim play session from the night of Friday 1/7, in which Delga and her housecarl Calder finish their quest through Bloodskal Barrow! And with a side helping of finding a couple more schematics for Sorine of the Dawnguard. (Which by definition required going back to the mainland for a little while!)
