Turned out I had a few more side quests to do still, before sending Shenner off to Solstheim! This is a double session post, covering sessions in which I hit Mzinchaleft to recover Mjoll the Lioness’ sword Grimsever, and then hit Arkngthamz to get Katria’s plot underway. And there was fishing! SO MUCH FISHING.
This was mostly a pretty low-key session, with a bunch of building, moving stuff around, and following up on Fishing-related quests.
But I also did some followup on the directive from the Jarl of Markarth to go kill a Forsworn leader. The awkward part of this: the leader in question was in Druadach Redoubt, lair of the Forsworn I just helped escape from Cidhna Mine. Awkward.
Here’s another double session post, covering the play I did on Saturday 4/9 and Sunday 4/10! Lots of places visited in these two sessions, including Nchuand-Zel, Liar’s Retreat, Ironbind Barrow, and Bleakcoast Cave! And also, two different named dragons fought and slain, Nahagliiv and Viinturuth, as well as a pesky very bad kitty, the Thalmor assassin J’datharr.
Now we’re down to it, the Forgotten Vale, definitely my favorite part of the Dawnguard quest line! I did not finish it in this session, but I did get through Darkfall Cave and Darkfall Passage, and made good inroads on Forgotten Vale itself once I got there.
It’ll probably take me another couple of sessions to finish it up and finally get Auriel’s Bow!
