We’re now reaching my favorite parts of Dawnguard in Faanshi’s playthrough! In this double session post, I got her to Castle Volkihar with Serana, and into the Soul Cairn to look for Serana’s mother Valerica–and many of the other fun things in the Soul Cairn as well.
This post covers play done on Tuesday 5/3 and Wednesday 5/4. Main action: taking Jenassa on a trip to free Thorald Gray-Mane from Northwatch Keep, and then taking her to be a recruit for the Blades. Side action: general adventuring, including running Shalidor’s Maze and slaying the dragon at Eldersblood Peak.
This is actually a double session post, since I didn’t get to put up one yesterday. Covered here is the play done on Friday 12/24 and Saturday 12/25.
And it works out nicely regardless, because this basically means I can cover all of the Soul Cairn action in one single post!
So mostly, this post is all about the Soul Cairn. Which was mostly the same as previous playthroughs, with the exceptions of doing things in a different order, and also actually killing the Reaper this time through.
