    In Which Harrowhark Helps Vilja Find a Bottle

    This is a double session post! I would split these up into individual posts–except that a good part of the first session had to get retconned due to very strange aggressive behavior from Lydia! So I redid a lot of that content in the session after, and I’m bundling the two together in this post.

    Got a whole lot of quests started, and most notably of the bunch: I have now met Vilja, since I’m running her follower mod! Lots of commentary on her and everything else behind the fold.

    In Which the Dragonborn Hunts for Fun and Profit

    No particular goal to yesterday’s Skyrim playing, really; I wanted another break from the bigger quests, and to see what I could do about building a gold reserve to go buy Proudspire Manor. Plus, I wanted to use the elven bow for a while to hunt things and refill some of my soul gems. But even though I had no particular quest-related goal, I did have a few interesting encounters!

    So what I wound up doing included:

    • Another hunting run in the plains around Whiterun
    • Encountered M’aiq the Liar
    • Encountered a jester-type character called Cicero
    • Additional smithing and potion crafting to sell stuff
    • Following up on a treasure map I’d come across to find a treasure near Riverwood
    • Killing another dragon (like you do, if you’re the Dragonborn)
