In Which Harrowhark is Inducted as a Bard, Then Goes After Mercer Frey
Four session post, just because I’ve been more in a mood for Harrow than Kendis this week. And because I fell behind doing Harrow’s posts! Main action in this post is all about Harrow finishing off the Bards College plotline, and then returning to Thieves Guild action! Time to go after Mercer “Murderous Lying Bastard” Frey. 😀
In Which Kendis Becomes Thane of Eastmarch
Double session post, in which the main two items of interest are Kendis getting the thaneship of Eastmarch, and finishing up renovations of her brand new Dwemer-themed home.
With a side helping of punching the daylights out of Rolff in Windhelm, because punching Rolff is a thing that all just and right-thinking Dragonborn should do. Preferably on a regular basis.
In Which Harrowhark Learns of Her Guildmaster’s Treachery
Triple session post because I got behind putting posts up this past week, and I wanted to get Harrow caught up. Main action in this post: getting Volendrung; finishing up the Saints and Seducers plotline; and last but definitely not least, returning to the Thieves Guild plotline and running Snow Veil Sanctum, with Mercer “Murderous Lying Bastard” Frey!
In Which Kendis Clears Fort Hraggstad and Slays Sahloknir
Kendis’ two latest sessions, in which I cleared out Fort Hraggstad finally, killed Sahloknir with Delphine, returned the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller to the Greybeards, acquired the stolen Lord’s Mail, took out the dragon and dragon priest Krosis at Shearpoint, and got herself a unicorn!
Whew! Busy sessions indeed.
In Which Kendis Becomes Thane of Riften and Quests into Mzulft
Double-session Kendis post to get caught up! Lots of action major and minor here, including stopping by Largashbur to help them with their giant problem; picking up a lot of side quests in Riften; helping Riften with its skooma problem, and getting proclaimed thane; buying Honeyside and picking up Iona as housecarl; hitting Stony Creek Cave and acquiring Finn’s Lute and the Ruin’s Edge bow; and last but not least, hitting Mzulft for the advancement of the College of Winterhold plot.
In Which Harrowhark Speaks to the Augur of Dunlain and Journeys to Mzulft
Double session post, mostly featuring exploring a bunch of changes to the mage college thanks to the Immersive College of Winterhold mod. <3 But I also got in working on the side quests for the mage apprentices, retrieving the staff for Enthir (this time from Pinemoon Cave), and then raiding Faldar’s Tooth for the clue about finding the sword Bloodthirst. And I got the Augur of Dunlain to point me at the Staff of Magnus, and Mirabelle to point me at Mzulft for finding clues on its whereabouts!
In Which Kendis Gains a Thaneship and Dawnbreaker
If you’re looking at this post going “hey, didn’t Harrowhark also just get the thaneship of Falkreath, and Lakeview Manor, and the Masque of Clavicus Vile?”, you are correct. This is kind of what happens when you’re doing two parallel playthroughs, it’s very easy for them to fall into similar patterns!
Aside from those two things, though, I also raided Faldar’s Tooth and actually saw more of that particular bandit hideout than I ever had done before, so that was cool!
In Which Shenner Gains Two Hammers and the Thaneship of Haafingar
Eventful session! Returned to Crystaldrift Cave and acquired the hammer Nerveshatter; concluded the Cursed Tribe quest, and acquired the hammer Volendrung; concluded the Beyond the Grave quest, and acquired Daedric plate armor; acquired Proudspire Manor and got the thaneship of Haafingar; and successfully cleared Giant’s Tooth, to move the Dying Wish quest towards its conclusion.
In Which Shenner Acquires Thaneships, a Unicorn, and a Goblin
Extremely eventful session! Shenner picked up thaneships in Morthal and Riften, tracked down and tamed a unicorn, rescued a goblin from imprisonment by a false god, and retrieved a set of Daedric mail!
(And if you’re going, “Hey Anna, I thought you were alternating between Faanshi and Shenner,” you are correct! But this time I wanted two back to back Shenner sessions, because I wanted closure with Movarth.)
In Which Faanshi Discovers the Location of the Staff of Magnus
This session was mostly all about the mage college! Moved the plot pointer there along by running Mzulft, which got me the info about the Staff of Magnus being in Labyrinthian. And as a bonus, I killed a Blood Dragon at Largashbur, where the remaining Orcs are in fact still alive!
