In Which Kendis Becomes Thane of the Pale and Takes Territory for the Empire
This is another three-session post, as I’m trying to clear out my queue to get caught up! Main action here: lot of war stuff, since I took both the Pale and the Rift for the Empire; got Bloodchill Cavern; got the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal; got the cracked White Phial for Nurelion; got the ironwood fruit to make the healing soup for Rulnik; got the Headman’s Cleaver; and last but not least, became thane of the Pale after putting Brina Merilis in power as Jarl.
In Which Harrowhark Gains a Star and a Horn, and Also Slays Some Dragons
Double session post, main action of which was Harrowhark acquiring Azura’s Star, recovering the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller, and slaying the dragon Sahloknir. And, Team Dragonborn paid a little visit to Lost Valley Redoubt and pissed off a whole lot of Forsworn!
In Which Harrowhark Gains a Sapling and a New Companion
This was a long, busy session in which quite a bit happened: going to Falkreath and getting in good with the Jarl by killing a bandit chieftain for him; clearing out zombies at a ritual site; getting Nettlebane, and then later, acquiring a sapling to replace the ailing Gildergreen; finishing out the furnishing of Breezehome; getting Vilja some help with her mysterious bottle; and last but not least, picking up a new follower, Lucien!
This is a big post with a lot of commentary and a lot of screenshots. Because not only did I find Lucien and try him out as a follower, I also actively decided against keeping Vilja, because she annoys the fuck out of me.
In Which the Dragonborn Trio Joins the Thieves Guild
Dara, Mel, and I convened for another session of Skyrim Together Reborn this past weekend. We had all the same STR shenanigans we’ve observed before in previous sessions, but this time it was with the added fun of joining the Thieves Guild!
In Which Kendis Goes Bandit Hunting
Still doing a lot of the quests originating in Whiterun, before I finally set off for the Throat of the World. This session featured hitting Redoran’s Retreat and Valtheim Towers.
In Which Skyrim Together is Slightly Less Weird This Time
I know all my posting love has been going to Elder Scrolls Online and my primary Skyrim playthroughs, but we are still periodically doing Skyrim Together when time permits! Last night, Dara, Mel, and I had our next STR session. So let’s return to the hapless adventures of our trio of Dragonborns in the Skyrim AU where the laws of physics are often on vacation, where weather can change at a moment’s notice, and where the newly slain can come back to life without a single necromancer involved.
In Which Shenner Recovers the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller and Slays a Dragon Priest
Big, busy session with a lot of action in it, a mix of old stuff and new stuff! Main highlights: ran Ustengrav; went to Kynesgrove with Delphine and slew Sahloknir; acquired the new version of the dragonscale armor; slew the dragon and the Dragon Priest Krosis at Shearpoint; got a new bunny pet; and got the orcish plate armor you can get by clearing Embershard Mine and investigating the orc smith there!
This session was run on Saturday 5/28.
In Which Shenner Goes to High Hrothgar
Not much in the way of new action in this session, mostly because doinking around with mods and seeing if I could improve my frame rate performance on my ancient PC took up most of the time. But I did clear Silent Moons Camp, have a look at one of the new homes in the Anniversary Edition, and make it to High Hrothgar!
In Which Faanshi Recovers the Horn and Slays Sahloknir
This session was mostly about moving the main plot far enough along to reach Diplomatic Immunity–which meant recovering the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller, slaying Sahloknir to gain Delphine’s assistance, and then returning the Horn to the Greybeards. And with a side helping of beginning the Bards College quest!
In Which Faanshi Climbs the Seven Thousand Steps
As one does upon finding out one is Dragonborn and being summoned by the Greybeards, Faanshi went on the strongly urged pilgrimage to High Hrothgar. Which, this time through, provided rather more challenging than previous playthroughs!
