After extensive doinking around with my mods to try to recover a workable set of them, finally got a load order I like working on both the VM and the Steam Deck. So time for a new modded playthrough, y’all.
And this time I’m switching it up even more and playing a dude, Elessir the Dunmer, named for Elessir a’Natharion from the Free Court books.
So let’s do that destroying Helgen thing, shall we?
Typical initial action for one of my playthroughs, getting started as a Dragonborn, getting thaned, getting Lydia, etc. But this time with lots of German language geekery.
This session pretty much amounted to doing the rest of the preliminary work to get Merawen established enough as Dragonborn that I could get to the point of failing to find the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller… and then bailing to Riften.
Highlights and commentary and such behind the fold!
It’s a little odd being on a low level character again so soon after defeating Miraak and finishing up with a character at level 62. I have to remind myself that I can no longer do certain things I’d gotten used to while playing Alarrah!
As promised, I did finally marry my darling Lydia. <3 And for a honeymoon, I took her to go kill some draugr! It’s like our first date all over again!
Twitter thread from 5/20/2021, in which Alarrah finishes the run through Kilkreath to take out the necromancer Malkoran, and acquire Dawnbreaker.

1. Dived back into the final stage of The Break of Dawn, to try to take down Malkoran. Holy hopping _fuck_ that was a hard fight.
