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 Acquires Mehrunes’ Razor and Joins the Bards College
This post features Harrow finishing off getting the Gauldur Amulet as well as Mehrunes’ Razor, and learning how to craft amber and madness gear after fighting the mad smith Evethra.
Biggest highlight of this post, though, is finally beginning the Bards College with Harrow–and y’all, I’m in love with this mod already!
In Which Kendis Takes Windhelm for the Empire and Gains a Dwarven Home
Another three-session post, with major action being the ending of the Skyrim Civil War, the slaying of Ulfric Stormcloak, and my beginning work on becoming Brunwulf Free-Winter’s thane. With a side helping of catching the Butcher, and then later checking out the Dwemer-themed home called Nchuanthumz!
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 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 Harrowhark Learns of Her Guildmaster’s Treachery
Triple session post because I got behind putting posts up this past week, and I wanted to get Harrow caught up. Main action in this post: getting Volendrung; finishing up the Saints and Seducers plotline; and last but definitely not least, returning to the Thieves Guild plotline and running Snow Veil Sanctum, with Mercer “Murderous Lying Bastard” Frey!
In Which Kendis Becomes Thane of Hjaalmarch and Goes to War
Three-session post here, because I got a little behind getting posts written this past week. Lots of action in this one, as I got the civil war plot officially underway in Kendis’ run. Some ruminations here too about what motivates a Redguard to fight on the side of the Empire.
In Which Kendis Aids the Remnants and Slays a Mad Conjurer
Basically, these two sessions were all about finishing up the overall Remnants plotline, and the Saints and Seducers plotline as well. I contacted Remnants agents and eventually helped rescue their captured comrade from the Thalmor. I got awarded a set of their armor. And I took out the remaining bandit camps, quested into the sewers in Solitude and defeated Thoron, and did the epilogue where I handed off the Sword of Jyggalag to Staada.
