And meanwhile, let’s get back to the Survival Mode playthrough, shall we? Main action here: fighting bandits at both Halted Stream Camp and Silent Moons Camp, buying Breezehome, and getting the quest to go run Dustman’s Cairn with Farkas for the Companions!
This is a double session post.
Et voilà, the conclusion of the mage college plot! With a side helping of the usual crafting and selling, a bit of training, progress on a couple of mage college side plots, and the inevitable surprise dragon.
And here’s the post for Sunday’s play! Main highlights here: finishing running Mzulft, and returning to the college to witness Ancano making his play for the Eye of Magnus, the death of the Arch-Mage, and the attack of magical anomalies on Winterhold.
Also of note: why it’s bad for your housecarl to piss off the Master Wizard of the mage college you’re a member of.
This post covers two different sessions–Sunday the 31st and Monday the 1st. Sunday’s was a super short session so I bundled that in with this post.
Main highlight of this action: my young orc passing her trial to be inducted into the Companions! With a side helping of bandits.
I boinged around a lot in this session, but in between all of the fast traveling, I did actually also revisit the main plot! Which meant taking the Dragon Elder Scroll up to the top of the Throat of the World, learning Dragonrend, and having the first round of fighting with Alduin.
And Alduin was only one of the dragons I fought in this session, though unlike the two Revered Dragons and the Ancient one, he actually survived the fight!
Next to that, doing the Mind of Madness quest and getting the Wabbajack from Sheogorath was a relaxing vacation. 😀
