I thought I was done with commentary on Project AHO, but not quite. Got a couple more minor spoilery comments about the AHO in this post, pertaining to rewards given in that mod and how they apply to my playthrough moving forward, as well as Kendeshel’s mindset after her experiences with that plot.
Also, spoilery commentary in this post about Legacy of the Dragonborn as well, as this features the Shadows of One’s Past quest for that mod.
Aside from that, action in this post that isn’t mod-specific includes getting the Daedric plate armor, cleaning out the first Saints bandits camp for the Saints and Seducers quest, joining the Imperial Legion, joining the Companions, running Dead Men’s Respite, doing the civil war champions fight, and running Korvanjund to get the Jagged Crown.
This Kendeshel post covers my getting Runil’s journal for him out of Sunderstone Gorge, getting the thaneship in Falkreath, starting the building of Lakeview Manor, meeting Delphine in Riverwood, and getting on the road with her to go to Kynesgrove and kill Sahloknir…
At which point the plotline for the Project AHO mod kicked in. This post will include major spoilers for that mod in particular, so please be advised. If you think you might want to run this mod but don’t want the spoilers for it, please have a look at my Review of Project AHO mod (non-spoiler version) post.
Some minor spoilers as well for Legacy of the Dragonborn. Brief mentions of actions for the Book of Wonders quest, as well as changes I noted with the progression of the storyline in general, and certain tweaks the mod makes to AE Skyrim content.
This is take two of Kendeshel’s starting session in my Legacy of the Dragonborn Skyrim playthrough. As I previously posted, I had to start over because I found annoying mod breakage that I didn’t want to put up with! Action is almost the same as in my previous starting session, minus stopping in Dragon Bridge, plus a bit more exploration in Helgen given that this playthrough also includes Alternate Start.
Couple more sessions in my modded Skyrim featuring Elessir. Main action: recovering the stolen books from Fellglow Keep; slaying the dragon and Dragon Priest Krosis at Shearpoint; visiting the Augur of Dunlain and learning that the College of Winterhold needs the Staff of Magnus; recovering King Olaf’s Verse from Dead Men’s Respite; reinstating the Burning of King Olaf Festival; and slaying a bandit chief at Fort Fellhammer.
NEW PLAYTHROUGH! And this is a big chonky playthrough start, because in this one, I’m running Legacy of the Dragonborn. And Alternate Start. Which means I had a whole new way to experience the start of a Skyrim run, with a whole big new gigantic mod to play with. This is going to be fun. 😀
This was a huge eventful session, in which I did a great deal of things initially in an attempt to get Vilja killed off. But she kept doggedly holding her own in battle! So i finally punted to a backup plan, which resulted in the dismissal of all of Harrow’s followers–but also in her becoming infected with Sanguinare Vampiris, and fleeing her party’s company rather than risk endangering them. So now she’s run off to join the Thieves Guild in Riften…
But her disease has run its course. And now she’s a vampire.
This post is enormous, since a lot of things happened in it. You may want to grab a snack or a drink before you settle in with this one!
