• Faanshi Playthrough,  Skyrim

    In Which Faanshi Weds a Sword-Maiden

    Yep, even though right now my Steam Deck is the cool new kid on my block, still haven’t forgotten I have a Khajiit in play on the Switch! So let’s go back and see what Faanshi’s up to, shall we?

    Ah yes: marrying her housecarl from Solitude, Jordis the Sword-Maiden, finally! <3 <3 And oh yes: adopted a sister for Sofie, Runa Fair-Shield! With this session, as well, I officially sent Faanshi to Solstheim to get the Dragonborn plotline underway for her. Chosen follower for this expedition: Serana!

  • Shenner Playthrough

    In Which Shenner Visits Alduin’s Wall

    This was another session in which I did way more than I could easily fit in the post’s title! Lots of fishing challenges pursued here, but also going to Karthspire for Alduin’s Wall and the resolution of the Crypt of the Heart quest, so now I have Ebony Spell Knight armor! Plus, I may not be playing an official thief with this character–but I did move the Gray Cowl plot a little further along, and amused myself with breaking into Erikur’s house in Solitude. And more even beyond that, but those are the main highlights!

    Alduin’s Wall, though, gets the title lead since it’s main plot stuff.

    Adventures in Skyrim Up Till Now

    I’ve been posting play by play updates of my adventures in Skyrim, a thing that folks are telling me on both Twitter and Facebook that they enjoy reading. It has, however, occurred to me that it might actually be nice to post that stuff to the blog! Not only for the sake of new actual content, but also for the sake of anybody who actually reads my blog (or the Dreamwidth mirror), and who might be entertained by my Skyrim adventures.

    I’m not going to re-post all the play by plays up to this point, just because redoing them is work I don’t feel like doing. But to bring everybody who doesn’t follow me on social media up to speed, here’s where I am in the game so far. (And while this is primarily a summary of in-game activity, I’m also throwing in periodic in-character commentary, just because this is so immersive a game that it really does feel like my old MUSHing days.)

    Lots of gaming geekery behind the fold!

    Alarrah the Wood-Elf is now level 21, and has established herself as a Thane of Whiterun, with her loyal housecarl Lydia tromping with her all over the countryside killing assorted dragons, bandits, undead, and other beasties; righting assorted wrongs; and just generally collecting a lot of shiny loot while the Skyrim Civil War builds around her.
