Most of the action of this session was just general adventuring and crafting—up to the part where I got back to Markarth, and ran the Forsworn Conspiracy/No One Escapes Cidhna Mine! plot again.Continue reading “In Which Merawen Foils a Conspiracy and Escapes Cidhna Mine”
Anybody reading my recent updates and going “gee Anna, you’re sure bouncing Merawen around through the various major faction plotlines” is absolutely correct. Because I am!
Part of this has to do with my previous commentary re: a) wanting to re-do the big plotlines that I had fun with before, and b) wanting to see if I can run Dawnguard and Dragonborn before I finally go for Alduin. But a new wrinkle in this is also that I’ve been running Merawen with the difficulty kicked up another notch, from “Novice” to “Apprentice”. Earlier in her run this wasn’t having a significant impact, but now that I’m up to level 30 I think I’m starting to feel it.
Hence, bouncing around through various plotlines, trying to see which ones I can finish, and which ones provide me the means to move other ones along.

In this session, the primary action was re-doing plots I’d already done with Alarrah—but which I liked well enough that I wanted to go ahead and do them again. And, I did another burglary job in Whiterun.

A shorter session, since this was a Sunday, but still got in successfully running Sunderstone Gorge finally, and hunting for ingredients for Ingun Black-Briar. And also paid a visit to the Face Sculptor! So now Merawen is a brunette!Continue reading “In Which Merawen Visits the Face Sculptor”
Since this whole question of owning property and needing to buy and/or build and/or furnish houses is increasing Alarrah’s expenses, I didn’t have any particular quest in play last night. Instead, I bopped around various places doing bounties, so I could try to build up my stock of gold.
- Killed a couple of giants for a bounty in Whiterun
- Got 500 extra gold for helping one of the market vendors in Whiterun
- Killed a bandit chief for a bounty in Falkreath
- Finally bought the property in Falkreath so I could begin building Lakeview Manor, and my housecarl Rayya could become its steward
- Killed a dragon at Shearpoint–and met and did not kill a dragon priest
