Another double session post, since the first half of this was too short to really count for a post on its own. Basically this was final post-Miraak action on Solstheim before Shenner officially returned to the Skyrim mainland.
This session was pretty much “doing some loose ends before I finally take on Miraak”. The most major of these loose ends was to take on the ghost frost giant Karstaag, one of the most powerful monsters in the entire game, just to see if I could take him out. Answer: yes, but boy howdy did that take some work!
Also, I progressed the plot line for Kolbjorn Barrow, and finished the run through the Hidden Twilight Black Book.
