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 Heads to the Forgotten Vale
Couple of sessions combined into one post, with the overall theme of “Shenner and Serana head to the Forgotten Vale in search of Auriel’s Bow”.
In Which Faanshi Ventures Into the Forgotten Vale
With this session, I began my favorite part of Dawnguard! Yes folks, it’s back to the Forgotten Vale!
This was a work night session, so I didn’t actually get in through the Vale very far. And this will be a somewhat short post. But I’m going ahead and posting it just to clear the queue!
In Which Ysani Finds Recruits for the Dawnguard
Three main themes to this session: dragon killing, bear killing (a perfectly ridiculous number of bears!), and moving the Dawnguard plot along! Recruited Sorine and Gunmar, and had the reunion with Serana that leads to the quest to find a Moth Priest!
In Which Delga Acquires Auriel’s Bow
This is another double session post, covering gameplay done on the night of Sunday the 26th and Monday the 27th! Main goals of these sessions were to do Ancestor’s Glade and the entirety of Forgotten Vale. But there was a hefty side helping of encounters with the Traveler, as well as Double Dragon Surprise!
In Which Delga Helps a Werewolf, and Slays Vuljotnaak and Volsung
Mostly this session was about quests not related to major plots, since I wanted to whittle down the list of miscellaneous things stacked up in my journal. But I did finally run the Ill Met By Moonlight Daedric quest, since it was safe for me to do so. And I took out the named dragon Vuljotnaak, and the dragon priest Volsung!
