In Which Kendis Aids the Remnants and Slays a Mad Conjurer
Basically, these two sessions were all about finishing up the overall Remnants plotline, and the Saints and Seducers plotline as well. I contacted Remnants agents and eventually helped rescue their captured comrade from the Thalmor. I got awarded a set of their armor. And I took out the remaining bandit camps, quested into the sewers in Solitude and defeated Thoron, and did the epilogue where I handed off the Sword of Jyggalag to Staada.
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 Gets a Farm, a House, and Serious Frostbite
This was a very eventful session, in which I managed to get both Goldenhills Plantation and Hendraheim for Kendis, and also finally make it up to High Hrothgar to see the Greybeards. At which point I discovered exactly how big of a problem Survival Mode makes out of getting up and down High Hrothgar.
In Which Ysani Acquires More Stones of Barenziah and Interrupts a Summoning
Quested my way through both Rannveig’s Fast and Sunderstone Gorge–and once done with that, settled in to run the quests to take down the Wolf Queen Potema in Solitude, so I can work on getting two of the three remaining Stones of Barenziah! And getting the thaneship of Haafingar while I’m at it.
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 Merawen Defeats the Wolf Queen for Solitude
This session was pretty much entirely driven by wanting to whittle down the side quests, for the Guild and otherwise–and also by realizing that holy crap, I have about 25,000 gold, that’s enough to buy Proudspire, maybe I should go get Elisif to make me her thane?
So I did the plot to defeat Potema the Wolf Queen and keep her from being resurrected. Also moved the Forbidden Legends quest along, and did a whole bunch of thievery and other side quests as well.
Also, pro tip: try to avoid reading scrolls that will set you and nearby enemies on fire, if you don’t also want to set your housecarl on fire and piss her off. JUST SAYING.
