Back to my alt Marwyth in ESO! Main action of this post: beginning the overall Daedric War storyline, starting with running the Missing Prophecy prologue quest, and then proceeding to the start of the action in Vvardenfell. Where Marwyth–Ashlander by birth and Tribunal-denying heretic–is really not at all comfortable with being in a position where she has to work on behalf of Vivec. ;D
Another drop of sessions involving my ESO alt Marwyth! Main action featured in this post: saving Sai Sahan as part of the main plot; infilitrating No Shira Citadel as part of the Thieves Guild plot; saving the town of Selfora as part of the main quest in Deshaan; and helping the Argonians of Silent Mire fight off attacking slaver pirates.
I’m seriously behind on my ESO playthrough posts. But before I get into this one, I want to call out the recent news about a Zenimax employee, Leona Faren, having been basically railroaded into resigning after months of abuse by a transphobic manager. I am seriously pissed off about this, as I wrote in the other post.
For the time being, I am not bailing on the Elder Scrolls games I already own; they’re too important to me as a means of maintaining my mental well-being until my household can finally abandon our COVID precautions. We are not to that point yet, and we don’t know when we will be.
But I will not be giving ESO any further money, and I will also not be buying Starfield. And I’ll be monitoring the situation to see how it proceeds. Also, I will totally understand if anybody who’s been following this blog’s posts until now is even more pissed off at Zenimax than I am right now and needs to stand down from following my playthroughs.
Right? Right. So let’s talk about what Marwyth did from 6/13 to 6/19.
And now, back to Gyllerah! This is a week’s worth of sessions from mid-June, in which the main action was my moving the Ebonheart Pact further along for Gyllerah’s run through Cadwell’s Silver; running the prologue quest for Necrom; and also beginning the prologue quest for Morrowind, which got me some hefty action in Stormhaven.
This set of sessions are a mixed bag! Did a little of everything, moving the plots along not only for the main quest, but also the Thieves, Mages, and Fighters Guilds. Plus, side helpings of crafting, writ running, and robbing of the ships in Daggerfall!
And also, finding Billy Boyd’s character in the game finally, which was a delightful surprise. <3
A bunch of my ESO posts lately have been gigantic, since I’ve been jamming a bunch of days into them. But with this new alt of mine I’m pulling that back some, just because there’s been a lot of stuff to cover, and I’d be writing clear into next month if I tried to cover it all in one post.
So here’s one where the major highlight was joining the Thieves Guild!
By definition every single one of my posts on this blog is full of spoilers, but this one more so than most, since it features the end of the main plot of ESO. If you’re an ESO player, and you don’t want to know specifics of how the main plot ends, you might hold this post until later.
But if you don’t mind that part, then read on! Because yeah, this post’s main action is Gyllerah finishing up the game’s main quest in Coldharbour, and defeating Molag Bal.
Here, have a big drop of sessions for my ESO alt! Here’s five whole sessions at once with Marwyth, in which I did more action in Stonefalls; ran the opening act of the main quest in Coldharbour; and also did a side jaunt off with Gwendis of House Ravenwatch. And also, I started picking up on which things you can share between characters if you have multiple characters in ESO, and which things you cannot!
A lot of festival-related activity in these sessions, as most of this play was during the Jester’s Festival. But it also saw the beginning of the Anniversary Event for 2023 as well!
Also, I’ve started making progress with Master Writs, and practicing learning how to use a Restoration Staff, with an eventual goal of being a better healer/support type person for group scenarios.
Last but not least, stumbled into a plot that let me save Casimir, the King of Daggerfall, from assassins! And all because of a dog named Giblets.
This is a multi-session post that covers a wide span of days, most of which were me just logging into ESO long enough to run writs. Main reason for this: distracted by firing up an Oblivion playthrough!
But when I wasn’t running writs, the main highlights here were:
- Trying to join the Undaunted
- Closing breaches for the Psijic Order
- Fighting Daedra for the Fighters Guild
