Single session post this time! With a lot of action packed into it, cleansing the Earth Stone by Raven Rock, killing the undead general sending ash spawn after Raven Rock, and solving the mystery of what happened to Gratian Caerellius in Raven Rock Mine.
This post covers play done on Wednesday 4/13 and Thursday 4/14.
Why all the double session posts? Two reasons:
- Four playthroughs in, it’s harder for me to find new material to post about, and
- I’ve been having to go to bed earlier because the day job’s getting me up earlier, so I have less time to play on weeknights.
So it’s taking me longer to get enough useful material to make a post. Hence putting up a post every couple of sessions.
Anyway, main action here: beginning the run on Solstheim! And diving right into the main Dragonborn plot!
Note to all: This post is several days after the fact, since my house Internet went down on Thursday 1/6/2022, and only has come up again five days later. Not cross-posting this to Dreamwidth because I put up a mirror version of this same post on that site already, here.
With this session, I officially kick off the Dragonborn DLC activity for this playthrough! And the way the session action played out, Delga and her housecarl Calder made it to Solstheim and almost immediately got caught up in the mystery of what’s going on with Miraak taking over the minds of the people of the island.
This was a session pretty much all about the side quests, since Solstheim has many to choose from, and a lot of corners to explore. I wanted to make sure and get those corners checked out before I finish off the main quest!
