Another combo of new stuff and old stuff in this session, wherein I got the other two missing instruments for the Bards College–but also got Dead Man’s Dread, a beached pirate ship, as arguably the most unusual home I’ve acquired in Skyrim to date! And also, I tried out the new Fishing content!
This session basically finished up the Bard’s College quests, so that I could get the rest of the skill bumps off of those.
Very eventful session that saw the conclusion of the Pieces of the Past quest–and the unfortunate end of Silus Vesuius, as Mehrunes Dagon orders Ysani to kill him to claim the Razor! See below for how I confirmed the bug that let me play this out without getting an option to spare Silus!
Primary point of this session was doing the instrument finding quests for the Bards College, and getting the resulting skill bumps from them! And I began running Mzulft for the mage college plot.
(Also, this is not actually yesterday’s session–this is the session from Saturday. I never did put up this post yesterday, because of being out for a good chunk of the afternoon running errands. The post for yesterday’s play is forthcoming!)
This is the post for my session on Friday the 12th, primarily featuring getting the two remaining instruments back to the Bards College, and also getting the hammer Volendrung! With a side helping of discovering that boy howdy, Cragwallow Slope is hard to run if you’re not running a stealth character. :O
This was another one of those sessions where I was all over the map. Just about everything I did in this run was stuff I’d already done as Alarrah but which I enjoyed, so I wanted to do again–plus, the skill bonuses were important and I wanted to rack those up. I moved the mage college plot along a little further, ran the entire bard college plot, got Azura’s Star, and became thane of Winterhold. And oh yes, I also finally fully furnished Breezehome.
I did however also do a few new things, including trying out housecarl Rayya as a follower, running the Yngvild dungeon, and doing a thievery job in Windhelm that required me to break into the house of Brunwulf Free-Winter.
Twitter thread from 5/19/2021, in which Alarrah goes after Rjorn’s Drum, located at Halldir’s Cairn, for the Bard’s College.

1. Started this run by doing another pass through the shops in Solitude, and the notable items gained from that were an Elven Helmet to help fill out the rest of my elven armor, and a Dwarven Bow.
