In Which Harrowhark is Inducted as a Bard, Then Goes After Mercer Frey
Four session post, just because I’ve been more in a mood for Harrow than Kendis this week. And because I fell behind doing Harrow’s posts! Main action in this post is all about Harrow finishing off the Bards College plotline, and then returning to Thieves Guild action! Time to go after Mercer “Murderous Lying Bastard” Frey. 😀
In Which Kendis Raids the Thalmor Embassy and Marries a Mage
Three session post, so there’s a lot of action in this one! Main highlights: raiding the Thalmor Embassy, retrieving Esbern from the Ratway, marrying Rulnik (and finally settling him and the girls in Whiterun, to get Lucia and Sofie the hell out of Windhelm), and other assorted side action!
In Which Harrowhark Becomes Thane of Haafingar
Big Bards College action all over this pair of sessions, as I proceeded through Flute, Poetic Edda, and into Lute studies, as well as discovering how the spellsongs and general performance powers work. Meanwhile, I finished off Potema and bought Proudspire Manor, which let me become thane in Haafingar!
In Which Harrowhark Takes on the Thalmor and Becomes a Nightingale
Greatest hits action in this trio of sessions for Harrowhark–because it was Happy Fun Let’s Go Fuck Things Up at the Thalmor Embassy Time! Followed by the part of the Thieves Guild plotline where you get to join the Nightingales, which is where the really good parts kick in. <3
In Which Kendis Clears Fort Hraggstad and Slays Sahloknir
Kendis’ two latest sessions, in which I cleared out Fort Hraggstad finally, killed Sahloknir with Delphine, returned the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller to the Greybeards, acquired the stolen Lord’s Mail, took out the dragon and dragon priest Krosis at Shearpoint, and got herself a unicorn!
Whew! Busy sessions indeed.
In Which Harrowhark Gains a Star and a Horn, and Also Slays Some Dragons
Double session post, main action of which was Harrowhark acquiring Azura’s Star, recovering the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller, and slaying the dragon Sahloknir. And, Team Dragonborn paid a little visit to Lost Valley Redoubt and pissed off a whole lot of Forsworn!
In Which Kendis Becomes Arch-Mage and Returns Some Instruments
Double session post, with the main action being acquiring the Staff of Magnus, using it to save the College of Winterhold, and returning the lost instruments to the Bards College.
And oh yeah: these are the sessions that saw me decide to bail on Survival Mode.
In Which Harrowhark Gains a Thaneship and a Khajiit Follower
Double session post! Main action here: achieving the thaneship in Falkreath; reaching Haemar’s Shame and getting the directive to fetch the Rueful Axe; taking out the bandits at Treva’s Watch; buying the land for Lakeview Manor, and beginning its building; fetching the Rueful Axe from Rimerock Burrow, and then delivering it to Clavicus Vile to get him to take Barbas back; acquiring the sword Dawnfang and Duskfang from the depths of the Ratway; getting Grelod the Kind arrested for abusing her charges; and last but not least, acquiring a Khajiit companion with extremely odd ideas about why he needed to voluntarily commit himself to the Riften jail.
In Which Kendis Gains the Blood of the Beast
Double session post for Kendis this time, featuring adventuring for the Companions, being inducted into their Inner Circle–and becoming a werewolf. And a side helping of fighting bandits and the Silver Hand!
In Which Harrowhark Gains a Sapling and a New Companion
This was a long, busy session in which quite a bit happened: going to Falkreath and getting in good with the Jarl by killing a bandit chieftain for him; clearing out zombies at a ritual site; getting Nettlebane, and then later, acquiring a sapling to replace the ailing Gildergreen; finishing out the furnishing of Breezehome; getting Vilja some help with her mysterious bottle; and last but not least, picking up a new follower, Lucien!
This is a big post with a lot of commentary and a lot of screenshots. Because not only did I find Lucien and try him out as a follower, I also actively decided against keeping Vilja, because she annoys the fuck out of me.
