In Which Kendis Visits Alduin’s Wall and Slays a Dragon Priest
Time to swing back around and get caught up on Kendis! Main action in this post: running the Forsworn Conspiracy plot; reaching Alduin’s Wall at Sky Haven Temple, and getting Dragonbane; running the Crypt of the Heart plot and getting the Spell Knight armor; getting Azura’s Star; and defeating the dragon priest Hevnoraak at Valthume.
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 Gains a Thaneship and a Khajiit Follower
Double session post! Main action here: achieving the thaneship in Falkreath; reaching Haemar’s Shame and getting the directive to fetch the Rueful Axe; taking out the bandits at Treva’s Watch; buying the land for Lakeview Manor, and beginning its building; fetching the Rueful Axe from Rimerock Burrow, and then delivering it to Clavicus Vile to get him to take Barbas back; acquiring the sword Dawnfang and Duskfang from the depths of the Ratway; getting Grelod the Kind arrested for abusing her charges; and last but not least, acquiring a Khajiit companion with extremely odd ideas about why he needed to voluntarily commit himself to the Riften jail.
In Which Shenner Recovers the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller and Slays a Dragon Priest
Big, busy session with a lot of action in it, a mix of old stuff and new stuff! Main highlights: ran Ustengrav; went to Kynesgrove with Delphine and slew Sahloknir; acquired the new version of the dragonscale armor; slew the dragon and the Dragon Priest Krosis at Shearpoint; got a new bunny pet; and got the orcish plate armor you can get by clearing Embershard Mine and investigating the orc smith there!
This session was run on Saturday 5/28.
In Which Faanshi Hunts for Ingredients
A lower-key session with my Khajiit, as I wanted to take some time to do a bit of training and gold gathering, before trying more combat again! So I worked on gathering ingredients for quests with Ingun and Balimund (but also bought the hilt of Mehrunes’ Razor).
In Which Faanshi Quests Through Shriekwind Bastion and Shadowgreen Cavern
This is a double session post, brought on by trying to continue Faanshi’s run simultaneously with exploring running Skyrim on my PC laptop now! The action here was two short sessions with her across the last couple of days, Wednesday 5/18 and Thursday 5/19, doing low-key side plots in Shriekwind Bastion and Shadowgreen Cavern.
In Which Faanshi Becomes Thane of Falkreath and Hunts for Hircine
This was a big, busy session! Major action here: becoming thane of Falkreath, clearing Embershard Mine, running the Ill Met By Moonlight plot (Hircine’s Daedric quest), and buying Breezehome in Whiterun!
In Which Delga Hunts for Schematics and Blood Samples
This session was more tying up of loose ends post-Dawnguard: hunting for more schematics for Sorine, visiting the Paragon Portal in the Forgotten Vale, and tracking down the remaining needed blood samples for Septimus.
And oh yes: getting the Oghma Infinium, and the next meeting with Hermaeus Mora!
In Which Delga Acquires Lakeview Manor and Slays a Silver Hand Leader
Finally got Lakeview Manor started, setting up my third official home in this run and the first of the buildable ones! And also moved the Companions plotline a little further along, by assassinating a Silver Hand leader by the order of Aela the Huntress.
Plus, a side helping of bandit bounty, and as always, lots and lots and lots of smithing!
