• Ysani Playthrough

    In Which Ysani Fights Bandits, Spriggans, and a Dragon

    This session was all about fairly minor side quests, the sorts of early-stage stuff in the game that lets you get your feet under you as you level up. Mostly, this meant setting the stage to become thane in Falkreath.

    Got in a lot of bandit fighting, though, as well as multiple spriggans and a dragon. And practice with the whole strategy of throwing my best spells as soon as I see a combat situation coming, and getting the fuck out of the way so Lydia and my atronach can charge at whatever’s about to attack.

  • Delga Playthrough

    In Which Delga Becomes Thane of Riften

    High amount of things accomplished this session! Got Nettlebane and brought Danica Pure-Spring a sapling of Eldergleam. Cleared Ustengrav, and discovered some mysterious party had made off with the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller (ohnoez WHO COULD IT BE). Got Noster One-Eye in Solitude his missing helmet. Got enough ingredients to go finish up Balimund’s quest and a bonus, enough ice wraith teeth for Marise. So I was able to eventually buy Honeyside, and become Thane of Riften!

    I started the Bards College quest, just to get the skill bumps off of that. And parked myself at Forsaken Cave to do the White Phial retrieval.

  • Alarrah Playthrough

    In Which the Dragonborn Hunts for Fun and Profit

    No particular goal to yesterday’s Skyrim playing, really; I wanted another break from the bigger quests, and to see what I could do about building a gold reserve to go buy Proudspire Manor. Plus, I wanted to use the elven bow for a while to hunt things and refill some of my soul gems. But even though I had no particular quest-related goal, I did have a few interesting encounters!

    So what I wound up doing included:

    • Another hunting run in the plains around Whiterun
    • Encountered M’aiq the Liar
    • Encountered a jester-type character called Cicero
    • Additional smithing and potion crafting to sell stuff
    • Following up on a treasure map I’d come across to find a treasure near Riverwood
    • Killing another dragon (like you do, if you’re the Dragonborn)
