In Which Merawen Tells Sapphire About Her Father, and Slays a Dragon in Solitude

This session turned out to be focused entirely on a jaunt back to Skyrim proper. I’d gone over intending to do a circuit of all the houses and sell things, but a couple of surprises turned up!

Not the least of which was my very first incident of having to fight a dragon right inside Solitude.

In Which Merawen Gains Solitude for the Guild and Saves Esbern from the Thalmor

This session’s primary highlights were opening up Solitude for the Thieves Guild, after running the Dainty Sload plot—and then saving Esbern from the Thalmor, as I finally returned to the main plot and moved that along some more. I’m about to hit level 46, so it’s a good time to go get Dragonbane at Alduin’s Wall!

In Which Merawen Restores the Thieves Guild in Windhelm

This session was mostly about Thieves Guild stuff, with several side activities as well. Notably, I have done enough of the side jobs in Windhelm to trigger getting the special “reputation” job there, and that allowed me to start improving the Ragged Flagon!

In Which the Dragonborn is Reminded of the Main Plot

Last night’s run was me finally going “y’know, I really ought to move the main plot of this game along another notch”—but, being me, that wasn’t all I did, either! Main highlights:

  • Bopped up to Shearpoint and killed the dragon priest Krosis, as well as another generated dragon
  • Went to Riften to finally find Esbern and save him from Thalmor agents, then get him to Riverwood
  • While in Riften, talked with the smith and promised I’d bring him fire salts
  • After promising Delphine and Esbern I’d meet them at Karthspire, stopped home in Whiterun to get my stash of fire salts, bought another sample from Arcadia, and bopped up to Solitude to get more from Proudspire
  • On the way to Solitude, killed me an Elder Dragon
  • Got the Solitude carriage driver out of his loop by having him take me to Riften, rather than fast traveling
  • Determined that the generic Dragon I killed at Shearpoint had not cleared the dragon corpse haunting Whiterun
