In Which Kendis Becomes Thane of the Pale and Takes Territory for the Empire
This is another three-session post, as I’m trying to clear out my queue to get caught up! Main action here: lot of war stuff, since I took both the Pale and the Rift for the Empire; got Bloodchill Cavern; got the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal; got the cracked White Phial for Nurelion; got the ironwood fruit to make the healing soup for Rulnik; got the Headman’s Cleaver; and last but not least, became thane of the Pale after putting Brina Merilis in power as Jarl.
In Which Kendis Avenges Kodlak and Saves Dawnstar from Nightmares
This was a big crunchy session, in which I wound up doing a lot more in the vicinity of Dawnstar than previously played! Main goal was initially to reach Driftshade Refuge and avenge the killing of Kodlak, but I wound up doing the entire nightmares plot in Dawnstar as well just because traveling in Survival Mode is annoying in the cold parts of the map.
In Which Shenner Gains Two Hammers and the Thaneship of Haafingar
Eventful session! Returned to Crystaldrift Cave and acquired the hammer Nerveshatter; concluded the Cursed Tribe quest, and acquired the hammer Volendrung; concluded the Beyond the Grave quest, and acquired Daedric plate armor; acquired Proudspire Manor and got the thaneship of Haafingar; and successfully cleared Giant’s Tooth, to move the Dying Wish quest towards its conclusion.
In Which Delga Regains Winterhold for the Empire
Short but plot-relevant session, as I rescued prisoners from Fort Kastav and helped Imperial forces take the fort. And, by extension, regain Winterhold for the Empire!
In Which Delga Battles a Dragon and Bandits, and Seeks Azura’s Star
This is a double session post, covering play done on Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th! Doubling up because Friday’s was a short session, and I was too busy on Saturday trying to plow through my gigantic email backlog to do a Skyrim post. So y’all are getting both sessions in this combined post!
Major highlights: running the Volunruud dungeon to get the Shout word there; beginning the quest to get Azura’s Star; and killing a dragon with Farkas. In theory.
In Which Delga and the Companions Avenge the Death of Kodlak Whitemane
Big dramatic session in which I not only ran a bandit bounty and sought a Word Wall, but also moved the Companions quest line along quite a bit! And wiped out both the Glenmoril Coven and the Silver Hands while I was at it.
In Which Merawen and Jenassa Investigate Frostflow Lighthouse
I had originally planned to go to Solstheim in this session, but it turned into a bit of a road trip. Partly because I was very close to level 61 and wanted to see if I could make it over, so I could do a new round of training at the mage college before I headed over to Raven Rock.
So that meant, checking out a few things that were still new to me, while having Jenassa at my back. The main action of this was checking out Frostflow Lighthouse and finding out what happened to the poor unfortunate family there.
