In Which Faanshi Defeats Ahzidal, Miraak and Alduin
As predicted, I spent another couple of sessions finishing up Faanshi’s playthrough so I could free the Switch for running Survival Mode! This therefore is Faanshi’s last session post, covering both of the sessions I did with her.
Main actions in this pair of sessions: defeating Miraak in Apocrypha, Ahzidal in Kolbjorn Barrow, and Alduin in Sovngarde!
In Which Shenner is Proclaimed the Fisher Queen
I actually did main plot stuff in this session–i.e., visiting Paarthurnax and getting the objective to find the Elder Scroll, and learning the Clear Skies Shout–but I’m way more amused by how I got word that a song was written about how awesome I have become at fishing. LOL. Spent time on other side quests as well, finishing off the Pets plotline, recovering a staff for Enthir to get Onmund’s amulet back, and finding a couple aspects of the game that were buggy even though I’m running the USSEP in this playthrough.
In Which Faanshi Helps the Blades and Meets a Dragon
Continuing action with the main game plot here, basically running straight from going into the Ratway to find Esbern, up through meeting Paarthurnax, and then going back to the mage college to ask Urag how to find the Elder Scroll.
With a side helping of, as always, dragon fighting!
This post was for play done on Tuesday 6/28.
In Which Ysani Meets the Master of the Greybeards
Short-ish session that mostly amounted to hoofing it from Heljarchen to High Hrothgar, so that I could seek the knowledge of the Dragonrend Shout–and meet Paarthurnax! Then, returning to Fort Dawnguard to report in to Isran about that whole ‘found a vampire and an Elder Scroll but gave both back to a castle full of vampires’ situation.
In Which Merawen Visits Paarthurnax, Repairs the White Phial, and Seeks an Elder Scroll
A fair amount of plot action in this as I moved the main plot along, but also finished up the quest about the White Phial. And a lot of this was familiar territory–but not all of it!
Details as always behind the fold.
In Which the Dragonborn Takes on Alduin, Round One
This was a big crunchy run too, not just for length of play time yesterday, but also for big significant plot points that got carried out. And big significant bugs that interfered with my ability to do that, even though I did finally make it through the buggy parts!
Skyrim is a ten year old game at this point, but I know of at least one player now playing it on the Switch who hadn’t ever played it before. So for the sake of hiding major game plot points, I’m putting everything behind the fold.
In Which the Dragonborn Quests to Repair the White Phial
This session was mostly all about the side quests, some longer than others, with the primary one being the final stage of the quest about the White Phial in Windhelm.
In Which the Dragonborn Meets the True Leader of the Greybeards
Decided to go ahead and move forward with the next stage of the main quest last night, partly just because this one was particularly important plot-wise, but also because that stage was necessary to unlock the next stage of the White Phial quest!
