In Which Kendis Becomes Thane of the Pale and Takes Territory for the Empire
This is another three-session post, as I’m trying to clear out my queue to get caught up! Main action here: lot of war stuff, since I took both the Pale and the Rift for the Empire; got Bloodchill Cavern; got the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal; got the cracked White Phial for Nurelion; got the ironwood fruit to make the healing soup for Rulnik; got the Headman’s Cleaver; and last but not least, became thane of the Pale after putting Brina Merilis in power as Jarl.
In Which Shenner Impresses the Jarl of Riften
Fairly eventful session, even though a good bit of it went to discovering that I am not yet ready to take on the bandit boss at Traitor’s Post. What I did accomplish: getting a few more quest pointers! Building out the rest of Goldenhills Plantation! Taking care of the skooma dealer problem in Riften—and getting Laila Law-Giver to offer me a thaneship!
(I’m posting this on 6/9 but this is for play done on 6/7.)
In Which Ysani Saves Dawnstar from Nightmares
The main objective of this session was to run the Vaermina nightmare plot in Dawnstar, by way of getting ready to get the thaneship there. But I also worked on side quests for getting the thaneships in both Dawnstar and Winterhold, bought the land for Heljarchen Hall, and began the plot to seek Mehrunes’ Razor. Busy session all around!
In Which Delga Battles a Dragon and Bandits, and Seeks Azura’s Star
This is a double session post, covering play done on Friday the 19th and Saturday the 20th! Doubling up because Friday’s was a short session, and I was too busy on Saturday trying to plow through my gigantic email backlog to do a Skyrim post. So y’all are getting both sessions in this combined post!
Major highlights: running the Volunruud dungeon to get the Shout word there; beginning the quest to get Azura’s Star; and killing a dragon with Farkas. In theory.
In Which Merawen and Jenassa Investigate Frostflow Lighthouse
I had originally planned to go to Solstheim in this session, but it turned into a bit of a road trip. Partly because I was very close to level 61 and wanted to see if I could make it over, so I could do a new round of training at the mage college before I headed over to Raven Rock.
So that meant, checking out a few things that were still new to me, while having Jenassa at my back. The main action of this was checking out Frostflow Lighthouse and finding out what happened to the poor unfortunate family there.
