This is nominally a double session post—I say nominally, because while this post covers play done on Thursday 5/5 and Friday 5/6, Friday’s play session was super short.
Main action: getting Ingjard of the Dawnguard on deck as a follower, and taking her through Forelhost before presenting her as a recruit for the Blades. And then hiring Vorstag in Markarth, and beginning to take him through Ragnvald.
This session was all about working on establishing the Dragonborn’s presence in Markarth. Did the initial couple of quests to get the Jarl friendly to me, bought Vlindrel Hall, and started working on gaining the thaneship.
Primary goal of this session was moving the Dawnguard plot further along, from the point where I rescue Serana to the point where she and I are looking for the Moth Priest.
With a side helping of killing a whole bunch of dragons, getting issues with the Standing Stones sorted, and selling and stashing stuff in Whiterun!
(This post is going up on Thursday 12/23, but this is actually for the play session done on Tuesday 12/21.)
This session‘s preliminary action was visiting Ragnvald, to fight the dragon priest there and get its Shout word, and doing the same at Shearpoint because I wanted that Throw Voice Shout!
Main action saw me return to the main plot for a little while, because I decided it was high time that I go pay a call on the Thalmor Embassy! Proceeded through the recovery of Esbern from Riften, and getting Delphine and Esbern setting out for Sky Haven Temple.
This session was mostly all about running the quest called The Only Cure, which is the Daedric quest for the Spellbreaker shield, the reward given you by Peryite. More on this, and other action, behind the fold!
