In Which Tembriel Gets Glass Armor
Skyrim and ESO have gotten all my love lately, but I do still have a Morrowind playthrough in progress! So here’s a session in which I returned to Tembriel, and mostly worked on getting her more glass armor to prep her for the next phase of Morrowind’s overall plot.
In Which Gyllerah Returns to Morrowind and Fights a Dark Anchor
I was slightly mistaken about how much solo running I’d be doing early in the week, because Paul expressed interest in hitting a delve in Morrowind! So I boinged back there with him, so we could run our first delve on Vvardenfell. And I got in some additional treasure and artifact hunting, as well.
And then I took another stab at Morrowind, this time in mainland Stonefalls, and got an opportunity to run my first Dark Anchor. Exciting!
In Which Gyllerah Visits Mephala’s Realm, and Also Morrowind
This is another multi-session post, since a bunch of this was solo/writs activity and not worth posting on its own. But then Paul and I got in some plot advancement! And I also got to visit ESO’s version of Morrowind!
In Which Tembriel Does Not Let the Burial Caverns Daunt Her
After the previous session’s annoyances, I was bound and determined to make some progress on hitting the Urshilaku Burial Caverns. So for this pair of sessions, I did a side quest for the Fighters Guild, for the express purpose of getting enough gold to train up more for hitting the Burial Caverns again. Result: still haven’t cleared them, but I did make significant progress!
In Which Tembriel is Stymied by Forgetting to Save
I discovered a big problem with having had a bunch of my gaming cycles eaten by playing Elder Scrolls Online: it broke the habit I was trying to establish for myself in Morrowind of saving as often as possible. Read below for exactly how this broke my play session this time through, and cost me notable progress in the Urshilaku Burial Caverns!
In Which Tembriel Fights Orcs at a Daedric Shrine
This session saw the conclusion of my little quest line with Ranis at the Mages Guild–which got me the Daedric dagger I was going for. And then I shifted over to questing for the Fighters Guild instead, which proved to be very lucrative!
In Which Tembriel Returns to Odirniran
When last we left our heroine, Tembriel the budding Nerevarine, she’d arrived at the Urshilaku Burial Caverns. But the caverns proved a bit much–so I backed off for a new plan, which meant returning to Odirniran and finally resolving that quest!
This is a double session post.
In Which Tembriel Learns the Emperor’s Intentions
Main-plot-wise, this was a significant Morrowind session–because it’s the first one in which Tembriel gets a clue about what the Emperor actually wants of her, and why she was released from prison and sent to Morrowind.
Also, she solved a series of murders in Vivec, and took out the Camonna Tong in Balmora!
In Which Tembriel Gains Traction in House Hlaalu
This session was a direct followup to the events of the previous. Got the ebony mine plot dealt with, and also have acquired a Daedric katana, which is a significant bump up from the Iron Sparksword I’ve been carrying! And I’ve gotten a sponsor in House Hlaalu… yay? But Odirniran is still a real problem I won’t be able to solve yet, I think.
In Which Tembriel Has Trouble in Odirniran and Ebonheart
This was one of my more challenging sessions of Morrowind to date. Started trying to run the Odirniran quest for House Hlaalu, only to discover exactly why Greater Bonewalkers are a goddamn problem. So there was a lot of retreating being the better part of valor here, and eventual fallback to trying to finish off a different plot entirely!
