In Which Harrowhark Learns of Her Guildmaster’s Treachery
Triple session post because I got behind putting posts up this past week, and I wanted to get Harrow caught up. Main action in this post: getting Volendrung; finishing up the Saints and Seducers plotline; and last but definitely not least, returning to the Thieves Guild plotline and running Snow Veil Sanctum, with Mercer “Murderous Lying Bastard” Frey!
In Which Kendis Aids the Remnants and Slays a Mad Conjurer
Basically, these two sessions were all about finishing up the overall Remnants plotline, and the Saints and Seducers plotline as well. I contacted Remnants agents and eventually helped rescue their captured comrade from the Thalmor. I got awarded a set of their armor. And I took out the remaining bandit camps, quested into the sewers in Solitude and defeated Thoron, and did the epilogue where I handed off the Sword of Jyggalag to Staada.
In Which Harrowhark Visits the Forgotten City
All of my Skyrim posts are spoiler-laden by definition. But this one has a particularly high volume of spoilers, because in the two sessions covered here, I talk about running the plot for the Forgotten City mod. If you haven’t ever played this mod and think you might want to, and if having spoilers in advance would wreck your ability to enjoy the mod, I strongly recommend you bookmark this post and come back to it later.
If you want a short spoiler-free review, check this post instead. (And if you’re reading this post directly on Dreamwidth instead of on the main Anna Plays Skyrim site, here’s the direct Dreamwidth version of the spoiler-free post.)
And now, let’s talk about the Forgotten City! With a side helping of getting the swords Bloodthirst and Red Eagle’s Bane, killing a dragon at Fort Greymoor, and seeing a herd of wild horses. <3
This post is very long, because I have a lot to say about the mod. Brace for verbosity!
In Which Kendis Clears Fort Hraggstad and Slays Sahloknir
Kendis’ two latest sessions, in which I cleared out Fort Hraggstad finally, killed Sahloknir with Delphine, returned the Horn of Jurgen Windcaller to the Greybeards, acquired the stolen Lord’s Mail, took out the dragon and dragon priest Krosis at Shearpoint, and got herself a unicorn!
Whew! Busy sessions indeed.
In Which Harrow Gains Intelligence for the Guild and Regains Some Followers
Double session post, in which Harrow gains some vital intelligence for the Thieves Guild; takes over a mage tower near Morthal; fights bandits at Embershard Mine, the Saints bandit camp, and Knifepoint Ridge; and takes Lydia and Lucien back on as followers, despite having become a vampire.
In Which Kendis Gains the Blood of the Beast
Double session post for Kendis this time, featuring adventuring for the Companions, being inducted into their Inner Circle–and becoming a werewolf. And a side helping of fighting bandits and the Silver Hand!
In Which Kendis Gets a Farm, a House, and Serious Frostbite
This was a very eventful session, in which I managed to get both Goldenhills Plantation and Hendraheim for Kendis, and also finally make it up to High Hrothgar to see the Greybeards. At which point I discovered exactly how big of a problem Survival Mode makes out of getting up and down High Hrothgar.
In Which Harrowhark Gets Some Houses
This session picks up immediately where the last one left off, partway through Shroud Hearth Barrow. Action also featured: running Redoran’s Retreat to retrieve Amren’s sword, doing the In My Time of Need plot, getting silver armor for Lydia, getting the Hedge Mage Armor for me, and last but not least, acquiring both Hendraheim and Breezehome.
In Which Kendis Joins the Companions and Apprehends a Fugitive
Main two themes of this session were Kendis joining the Companions, and then going to confront Kematu about the Saadia situation–which turned out to go the opposite way I expected!
In Which Kendis is Revealed as Dragonborn
Kendis’ third session sees her fighting Mirmulnir at the Western Watchtower, discovering Alik’r warriors seeking a Redguard fugitive, thwarting an attempt to assassinate the Jarl, and acquiring the Bow of Shadows!
