In Which Kendis Aids the Remnants and Slays a Mad Conjurer
Basically, these two sessions were all about finishing up the overall Remnants plotline, and the Saints and Seducers plotline as well. I contacted Remnants agents and eventually helped rescue their captured comrade from the Thalmor. I got awarded a set of their armor. And I took out the remaining bandit camps, quested into the sewers in Solitude and defeated Thoron, and did the epilogue where I handed off the Sword of Jyggalag to Staada.
In Which Kendis Becomes Arch-Mage and Returns Some Instruments
Double session post, with the main action being acquiring the Staff of Magnus, using it to save the College of Winterhold, and returning the lost instruments to the Bards College.
And oh yeah: these are the sessions that saw me decide to bail on Survival Mode.
In Which Harrowhark Becomes Arch-Mage and is Kidnapped by the Brotherhood
So this was a nice big eventful session, which involved recovering the Staff of Magnus from Labyrinthian, becoming Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold, and getting kidnapped by Astrid to kick off the Dark Brotherhood plotline!
In Which Shenner Becomes Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold
This session saw the running of Labyrinthian to get the Staff of Magnus, and the immediate followup of the finale at the college, where yet again I have become Arch-Mage!
I also retrieved the Headman’s Cleaver from the bandits at Lost Knife Hideout, and got in the usual assortment of dragon fighting and crafting. Featuring unlocking Madness smithing finally, which let me start making weapons with the stuff!
In Which Faanshi Becomes Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold
Highly eventful session with Faanshi, as I resolved the College of Winterhold plot (hurray! I’m the Arch-Mage), but also made significant progress on the Thieves Guild plotline. 😀
In Which Ysani Obliterates Northwatch Keep and Brings Jenassa to the Blades
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.
In Which Ysani Acquires Mehrunes’ Razor
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!
In Which Ysani Restores the Gildergreen and Adopts a Dog
This was a lower-key session, in which I took care of several small side items, as well general building at both Lakeview and Windstad. Main things accomplished: clearing High Gate Ruins, taking out the dragon at Skyborn Altar for a bounty, and helping Danica Pure-Spring with the Gildergreen in Whiterun.
(This post is for the play session done on Wednesday 2/23. Thursday 2/24’s post will be forthcoming shortly!)
In Which Ysani Becomes Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold
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.
In Which Delga Does General Adventuring
This is another double session post, covering play on Sunday 1/2 and Monday 1/3, since the session on Sunday wasn’t really long enough to warrant a post by itself.
And basically, this was me doing some general adventuring, working my way westward across the map to get back to Markarth.
