In Which Kendis Clears Fort Hraggstad and Slays Sahloknir
Kendis’ two latest sessions, in which I cleared out Fort Hraggstad finally, killed Sahloknir with Delphine, returned the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller to the Greybeards, acquired the stolen Lord’s Mail, took out the dragon and dragon priest Krosis at Shearpoint, and got herself a unicorn!
Whew! Busy sessions indeed.
In Which Kendis Recovers Stolen Books for the Mage College
This is Kendis’ run through Fellglow Keep! Also features getting the dragonscale armor at Yorgrim Overlook, and a whole helluva lot of freezing weather, because this is what happens when you ride from the College of Winterhold down to Windhelm in Survival Mode.
In Which Shenner Banishes a Wolf Queen and Gains Another House
Less new action in this session than I was hoping for, but well, what action there was was fun, so that’s okay! It helps that I can try to vary up what old action I’m doing compared to Faanshi’s sessions, just so I’m not doing the same thing at the same time with the two characters.
Highlights of this session: banished the spirit of the Wolf Queen, Potema; got permission to buy Proudspire Manor in Solitude; retrieved the stolen books from Fellglow Keep; bought Tundra Homestead near Whiterun; killed the dragon at Lost Tongue Overlook; and got a journal about a mysterious weapon out of Crystaldrift Cave.
In Which Faanshi Restores the Gildergreen and Infiltrates Goldenglow Estate
Finally got Faanshi to a point where she can summon a dremora lord! So maybe I’ll be able to stay on Master Difficulty! And once I did that, I proceeded to restore the Gildergreen in Whiterun, and then go infiltrate Goldenglow Estate for the Thieves Guild.
This session was run on Friday 5/27.
In Which Faanshi Finds Nirnroot and Stolen Books
This is Faanshi’s play session from Wednesday, 5/25, and was fairly low-key by comparison with what I’ve been doing with Shenner. Main action here: finishing up the ingredients quest for Ingun in Riften, and then proceeding with the mage college plot, enough to get to the point of recovering the stolen books from Fellglow Keep.
In Which Ysani Marries Her Housecarl
Very eventful session with three overall main themes: moving the main plot along enough to get to Alduin’s Wall (and by extension, getting the Blades Armor and Dragonbane); finding the Crown of Barenziah, and bringing it back to the Thieves Guild; and last but not least, marrying Argis the Bulwark!
In Which Ysani Does General Adventuring
This post covers play on Tuesday 3/8 and Wednesday 3/9, and basically is a lot of me wandering around doing general adventuring, killing time till I’m able to proceed on the Potema plot.
In Which Ysani Seeks Words of Power and Entry Among Thieves
And now we shift tone in this run from College of Winterhold to Thieves Guild. Which is a very distinct tonal and moral shift, and I have some thoughts about how Ysani is approaching this! How do you go from taking over the College of Winterhold to running off to join the Thieves Guild in Riften? And why?
Answer: because Ysani’s hellbent on fucking up the Thalmor as much as possible, and the Thieves Guild are going to help her do it. Plus, she rather likes the mages at this point and wants to keep them out of this if she can.
In Which Ysani is Challenged to a Duel
The subject line on this post only captures part of what I did in this session, but I’m using this for the subject line because it was the main new action: i.e., being challenged to a wizard duel in Whiterun!
But I also cleared Shriekwind Bastion, killed the dragon at Mount Anthor, and proceeded through the mage college plotline.
In Which Delga Battles Necromancers and Recovers Stolen Books
Short-ish session since it was a Sunday night run. I ran Sunderstone Gorge to find the Word of Power there, and also ran Fellglow Keep to recover the stolen books for the mage college.
