Short session as anticipated, because Sunday night session. Basically only had time to do the final stage of the Kolbjorn Barrow quest, and read the Black Book found there.Continue reading “In Which Merawen Slays the Dragon Priest Ahzidal and Clears Kolbjorn Barrow”
More side quests on Solstheim this session, with emphasis on moving the Kolbjorn Barrow plot further along, and then returning to Tel Mithryn so I could finish the Briarheart Necropsy quest. And proceed to the Old Friends quest, which let me go take out Ildari Sarothril.Continue reading “In Which Merawen Clears More Draugr from Kolbjorn Barrow and Confronts Ildari Sarothril”
This session was all about the side quests on Solstheim, and I think I pretty much did two rounds all around the island, getting in all the places I wanted to go.Continue reading “In Which Merawen Does Circuits Around Solstheim”
Very busy session all around. Got the main Dragonborn plot properly underway with finding Miraak’s temple and meeting Frea of the Skaal, and letting that proceed along to the point of clearing four of the All-Maker Stones with the Bend Will Shout, and beginning the search for more of the Black Books.
Also, got the Kolbjorn Barrow plot properly underway and the A New Source of Stalhrim plot, as well as hunting for pieces of the Deathbrand armor. And got Cindiri Arano her folio back.Continue reading “In Which Merawen Begins Saving Solstheim from Miraak”
This session was pretty much “doing some loose ends before I finally take on Miraak”. The most major of these loose ends was to take on the ghost frost giant Karstaag, one of the most powerful monsters in the entire game, just to see if I could take him out. Answer: yes, but boy howdy did that take some work!
Also, I progressed the plot line for Kolbjorn Barrow, and finished the run through the Hidden Twilight Black Book.
Getting close to Dragonborn’s end game, here. There are still bits of Solstheim I haven’t really explored yet. But on the other hand, I’m also feeling like Alarrah is close enough to her final challenge that I’m okay if she misses the other bits of Solstheim—I can always do the other bits on my next playthrough!
In this session, the big important thing done was the final part of the Gardener of Men quest, which sets the stage for the Dragonborn to confront Miraak. And which is rather sad, too. But there’s also a side helping of clearing Kagrumez, and getting a pet Dwarven Spider following me around!
Apparently I was not running quite as low on places to visit on Solstheim as I thought! This session let me add a couple more to the list, in addition to the ongoing slower effort of clearing Kolbjorn Barrow.
