In Which Harrowhark Learns Dragonrend and Saves Dawnstar
Kind of a mishmash of action here, with Harrow finally getting her first encounter with Alduin on the Throat of the World–but also settling the nightmare problem in Dawnstar, and getting the thaneship there. Plus fishing. So much fishing!
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 Becomes Thane of Riften and Quests into Mzulft
Double-session Kendis post to get caught up! Lots of action major and minor here, including stopping by Largashbur to help them with their giant problem; picking up a lot of side quests in Riften; helping Riften with its skooma problem, and getting proclaimed thane; buying Honeyside and picking up Iona as housecarl; hitting Stony Creek Cave and acquiring Finn’s Lute and the Ruin’s Edge bow; and last but not least, hitting Mzulft for the advancement of the College of Winterhold plot.
In Which Shenner Rescues a Curate and Slays a Priest of Dagoth Ur
Most of this session was actually taking a Dragonborn break, and doing a circuit through Skyrim’s major cities and selling off a bunch of accumulated loot. But I also moved the Ghosts of the Tribunal plotline further along, and took out a renegade priest of Dagoth Ur who threatened the temple. Also, I finished up Kolbjorn Barrow!
In Which Faanshi Finds the Location of Auriel’s Bow and a Lot of Schematics
I had thought I was going to proceed onward to Forgotten Vale in this session, once I got the location of Auriel’s Bow in Ancestor Glade. I was mistaken! Instead, I ran the rest of Sorine’s “find me a schematic” quests.
In Which Shenner Aids the Remnants and Finds Divine Relics
This was a very busy session! Ran the Interception quest, which let me aid the Remnants from Hammerfell; found divine relics at Four Skull Lookout, only to discover they didn’t consider me worthy; and slew Evethra, the mad blacksmith, from whose journal I learned how to forge amber and madness items.
And a side helping of two different dragons slain, fire salts and nirnroot dropped off, and shrines visited!
In Which Shenner Quests for Instruments, a Pirate Ship, and Fish
Another combo of new stuff and old stuff in this session, wherein I got the other two missing instruments for the Bards College–but also got Dead Man’s Dread, a beached pirate ship, as arguably the most unusual home I’ve acquired in Skyrim to date! And also, I tried out the new Fishing content!
In Which Faanshi Recovers a Lute and a Drum
This session basically finished up the Bard’s College quests, so that I could get the rest of the skill bumps off of those.
In Which Ysani Quests for the Bards College
Primary point of this session was doing the instrument finding quests for the Bards College, and getting the resulting skill bumps from them! And I began running Mzulft for the mage college plot.
(Also, this is not actually yesterday’s session–this is the session from Saturday. I never did put up this post yesterday, because of being out for a good chunk of the afternoon running errands. The post for yesterday’s play is forthcoming!)
In Which Delga Becomes Thane of Eastmarch
Unlike the previous session, this was a pretty big one! I cleared out Geirmund’s Tomb and got the third and final fragment of the Gauldur amulet, but that was really just a warmup for the session’s main action: becoming thane of Eastmarch, buying the house Hjerim, and solving the ongoing murders going on in Windhelm.
