Back to my alt Marwyth in ESO! Main action of this post: beginning the overall Daedric War storyline, starting with running the Missing Prophecy prologue quest, and then proceeding to the start of the action in Vvardenfell. Where Marwyth–Ashlander by birth and Tribunal-denying heretic–is really not at all comfortable with being in a position where she has to work on behalf of Vivec. ;D
This post for Gyllerah in ESO covers a full half a month in time, but a whole lot of that was general writs and crafting action–so less to go over here than you’d think. Main actual RP action here was finishing off the Demon Weapon plot with Abnur Tharn and Khamira; running some side plot action in Stonefalls (some of which was fun, some of which decidedly not); and finishing up the main Ebonheart Pact plot in Stonefalls as well.
Swinging back around to getting caught up on Gyllerah’s action in ESO. This set of sessions is mostly all about running prologue plots–specifically, finishing up the Azura oracles plot that acts as the prologue to Morrowind, and the Demon Weapon plot that acts as the prologue to Northern Elsweyr.
I’m seriously behind on my ESO playthrough posts. But before I get into this one, I want to call out the recent news about a Zenimax employee, Leona Faren, having been basically railroaded into resigning after months of abuse by a transphobic manager. I am seriously pissed off about this, as I wrote in the other post.
For the time being, I am not bailing on the Elder Scrolls games I already own; they’re too important to me as a means of maintaining my mental well-being until my household can finally abandon our COVID precautions. We are not to that point yet, and we don’t know when we will be.
But I will not be giving ESO any further money, and I will also not be buying Starfield. And I’ll be monitoring the situation to see how it proceeds. Also, I will totally understand if anybody who’s been following this blog’s posts until now is even more pissed off at Zenimax than I am right now and needs to stand down from following my playthroughs.
Right? Right. So let’s talk about what Marwyth did from 6/13 to 6/19.
This set of sessions are a mixed bag! Did a little of everything, moving the plots along not only for the main quest, but also the Thieves, Mages, and Fighters Guilds. Plus, side helpings of crafting, writ running, and robbing of the ships in Daggerfall!
And also, finding Billy Boyd’s character in the game finally, which was a delightful surprise. <3
Here, have a big drop of sessions for my ESO alt! Here’s five whole sessions at once with Marwyth, in which I did more action in Stonefalls; ran the opening act of the main quest in Coldharbour; and also did a side jaunt off with Gwendis of House Ravenwatch. And also, I started picking up on which things you can share between characters if you have multiple characters in ESO, and which things you cannot!
A lot of festival-related activity in these sessions, as most of this play was during the Jester’s Festival. But it also saw the beginning of the Anniversary Event for 2023 as well!
Also, I’ve started making progress with Master Writs, and practicing learning how to use a Restoration Staff, with an eventual goal of being a better healer/support type person for group scenarios.
Last but not least, stumbled into a plot that let me save Casimir, the King of Daggerfall, from assassins! And all because of a dog named Giblets.
This is a multi-session post that covers a wide span of days, most of which were me just logging into ESO long enough to run writs. Main reason for this: distracted by firing up an Oblivion playthrough!
But when I wasn’t running writs, the main highlights here were:
- Trying to join the Undaunted
- Closing breaches for the Psijic Order
- Fighting Daedra for the Fighters Guild
I was slightly mistaken about how much solo running I’d be doing early in the week, because Paul expressed interest in hitting a delve in Morrowind! So I boinged back there with him, so we could run our first delve on Vvardenfell. And I got in some additional treasure and artifact hunting, as well.
And then I took another stab at Morrowind, this time in mainland Stonefalls, and got an opportunity to run my first Dark Anchor. Exciting!
