In Which Harrowhark Slays Mercer Frey and Is Cured of Vampirism
Three session post this time, with main action being running the rest of Irkngthand, returning the Skeleton Key to the Twilight Sepulcher, getting the Nerveshatter hammer, finishing the Arms of Chaos plot, and last but not least, being cured of vampirism!
In Which Harrowhark is Inducted as a Bard, Then Goes After Mercer Frey
Four session post, just because I’ve been more in a mood for Harrow than Kendis this week. And because I fell behind doing Harrow’s posts! Main action in this post is all about Harrow finishing off the Bards College plotline, and then returning to Thieves Guild action! Time to go after Mercer “Murderous Lying Bastard” Frey. 😀
In Which Kendis Raids the Thalmor Embassy and Marries a Mage
Three session post, so there’s a lot of action in this one! Main highlights: raiding the Thalmor Embassy, retrieving Esbern from the Ratway, marrying Rulnik (and finally settling him and the girls in Whiterun, to get Lucia and Sofie the hell out of Windhelm), and other assorted side action!
In Which Harrowhark Becomes Thane of Haafingar
Big Bards College action all over this pair of sessions, as I proceeded through Flute, Poetic Edda, and into Lute studies, as well as discovering how the spellsongs and general performance powers work. Meanwhile, I finished off Potema and bought Proudspire Manor, which let me become thane in Haafingar!
In Which Harrowhark Acquires Mehrunes’ Razor and Joins the Bards College
This post features Harrow finishing off getting the Gauldur Amulet as well as Mehrunes’ Razor, and learning how to craft amber and madness gear after fighting the mad smith Evethra.
Biggest highlight of this post, though, is finally beginning the Bards College with Harrow–and y’all, I’m in love with this mod already!
In Which Harrowhark Does Contracts for the Brotherhood
And with this post, Harrowhark has officially begun work for her new associates of the Dark Brotherhood. So that was actually kind of fun in the shady-as-fuck being-an-assassin way. And I’ll be intrigued to see how the drama building internally to the Brotherhood plays through, particularly in conjunction with the additions from the Dark Brotherhood for Good Guys mod.
In Which Kendis Becomes Thane of Hjaalmarch and Goes to War
Three-session post here, because I got a little behind getting posts written this past week. Lots of action in this one, as I got the civil war plot officially underway in Kendis’ run. Some ruminations here too about what motivates a Redguard to fight on the side of the Empire.
In Which Harrowhark Becomes Thane of Riften
Main action in this double session post: gaining the thaneship in Riften, and by extension, Honeyside and Iona as latest housecarl; finishing off the thieving jobs in Markarth and getting Endon as the local fence for the Guild; commenced the Crypt of the Heart plot for the Spell Knight armor; and ran the Folgunthur barrow to move the Forbidden Legend quest along.
In Which Harrowhark Joins the Dark Brotherhood
Finally hit the sessions wherein Harrow does, in fact, officially join the Dark Brotherhood. Coming into this a little antsy, but we’ll see how running the Dark Brotherhood for Good Guys mod impacts this!
Also featured in this post: having to do an additional mod install to fix a lingering bug from running Forgotten City; beginning work in Riften to get set up as thane there; also beginning the Fishing plotlines; running the Forsworn Conspiracy; and moving Thieves Guild action further along finally, by reaching the plot of getting Markarth’s special job queued up.
In Which Kendis Restores a Festival and Recovers a Drum
Bards College catchup! I restored the Burning of King Olaf Festival, and then went off to fetch the first of the instruments needed for Kendis to get all the skill bumps from the teachers there.
