In Which Shenner Acquires a Vampire Lair, a Goldfish, and Ancient Knowledge
Second of two Shenner posts today, but the previous one was for play done on Thursday 6/24, and this one is for play done on Friday 6/25. Main highlights: getting Bloodchill Manor, finally catching one of the two goldfish I need to move the Fishing plots along, and running Avanchnzel.
In Which Shenner Aids the Remnants and Finds Divine Relics
This was a very busy session! Ran the Interception quest, which let me aid the Remnants from Hammerfell; found divine relics at Four Skull Lookout, only to discover they didn’t consider me worthy; and slew Evethra, the mad blacksmith, from whose journal I learned how to forge amber and madness items.
And a side helping of two different dragons slain, fire salts and nirnroot dropped off, and shrines visited!
In Which Delga Does General Adventuring
This is another double session post, covering play on Sunday 1/2 and Monday 1/3, since the session on Sunday wasn’t really long enough to warrant a post by itself.
And basically, this was me doing some general adventuring, working my way westward across the map to get back to Markarth.
In Which Delga Becomes Thane of the Reach
And, finally, the conclusion to the efforts to become Jarl Igmund’s thane! Thaneship of the Reach achieved, along with the retrieval of a statuette, the killing of a spider, the exploration of a ruin, and the summoning of Durnehviir out of the Soul Cairn.
In Which Delga Rescues a Vampire and Searches for a Moth Priest
Primary goal of this session was moving the Dawnguard plot further along, from the point where I rescue Serana to the point where she and I are looking for the Moth Priest.
With a side helping of killing a whole bunch of dragons, getting issues with the Standing Stones sorted, and selling and stashing stuff in Whiterun!
(This post is going up on Thursday 12/23, but this is actually for the play session done on Tuesday 12/21.)
In Which Merawen Hunts Crimson Nirnroot, the Pale Lady, Bandits, and Bears
This session got a little more random than I planned going in! But this was kind of cool regardless, as I did some wandering around on foot to try to see if I could have anything interesting happen–and to get opportunities to exercise the Heavy Armor skill. I was pleased to find at least one totally brand new location I never saw during Alarrah’s run!
With the exception of finding the Lunar Forge, though, this was all familiar territory. So again, I’ll be focusing on the bits that were different this time vs. what happened when Alarrah did them.
In Which the Dragonborn Goes to Morthal and Slays a Giant
Still not entirely ready to take on main plot quests again, I decided for last night’s Skyrim run that my goal was going to be returning to Morthal and seeing if I could help a couple more of their people so that I could become Thane.
First, the obligatory shopping run. Got rid of a lot of things, and bought a few other things—including picking up some steel plate armor to better outfit Lydia, and some boots as well. That armor does not go well with the dwarven helmet and gauntlets. I need to get her a less silly looking helmet.
