And just because I have been kind of neglecting my playthrough on the Switch, I wanted to make a point of getting back to Faanshi and her playthrough! Main action: going to Tel Mithryn, clearing the Sun Stone, hitting Nchardak for its Black Book–and getting the ultimatum from Hermaeus Mora.
Very busy session, in which I did all of the general “establish myself in Raven Rock” plots, which gave me access to Severin Manor. So, running the plot for the mine, taking out Falx Carius at Fort Frostmoth, and foiling the plot to assassinate Councilor Morvayn!
Meanwhile, back on Solstheim, Shenner and her Team Dragonborn posse have begun the work of cleansing the All-Maker Stones, and setting things right not only for the Skaal, but for the island as a whole! Take that, Miraak!
This post covers play done on Wednesday 4/13 and Thursday 4/14.
Why all the double session posts? Two reasons:
- Four playthroughs in, it’s harder for me to find new material to post about, and
- I’ve been having to go to bed earlier because the day job’s getting me up earlier, so I have less time to play on weeknights.
So it’s taking me longer to get enough useful material to make a post. Hence putting up a post every couple of sessions.
Anyway, main action here: beginning the run on Solstheim! And diving right into the main Dragonborn plot!
This is my Skyrim post for the last play I did, on Monday 1/10, just before my house internet came back up. This is also the most recent Skyrim post I have to share with y’all, since I didn’t play last night; I was too busy dealing with necessary aftermaths of bringing the house net back up.
Since I’m posting this with normal functionality restored, it will be cross-posted to Dreamwidth as per usual.
This run was kind of short as it was done on a Monday night, but it let me get in some action on the way to Tel Mithryn, have my initial meeting with the wizard Neloth, and get started on running Nchardak at Neloth’s behest!
Very busy session all around. Got the main Dragonborn plot properly underway with finding Miraak’s temple and meeting Frea of the Skaal, and letting that proceed along to the point of clearing four of the All-Maker Stones with the Bend Will Shout, and beginning the search for more of the Black Books.
Also, got the Kolbjorn Barrow plot properly underway and the A New Source of Stalhrim plot, as well as hunting for pieces of the Deathbrand armor. And got Cindiri Arano her folio back.
This session was all about exploring Solstheim and beginning several side quests, in addition to moving the main Dragonborn quest line along.
And boy howdy is Solstheim weird after being used to the environment of Skyrim. But that’s a good thing!
