This session was more tying up of loose ends post-Dawnguard: hunting for more schematics for Sorine, visiting the Paragon Portal in the Forgotten Vale, and tracking down the remaining needed blood samples for Septimus.
And oh yes: getting the Oghma Infinium, and the next meeting with Hermaeus Mora!
Big session! Major points: running Alftand, making it down into Blackreach to the Tower of Mzark, and getting the Elder Scroll; returning the Runed Lexicon to Septimus, and the first interaction with Hermaeus Mora; and, sadly, losing Ria of the Companions as my steward at Heljarchen Hall, as she was killed by bandits. Rest well in Sovngarde, Ria!
Continuing the Dawnguard quest line with this session! Got Dexion Evicus rescued, also got Florentius rescued, and proceeded to the parts of the plot where two more Elder Scrolls are needed above and beyond the one that Serana has. Conveniently, since I haven’t yet found the Elder Scroll for the main plot, this means I can get that done now too!
This session was another long crunchy one, because on the night before a PTO day, I can stay up till stupid-o’clock playing Skyrim! :D
The main goal of this session was to find Septimus Signus and learn from him how to find an Elder Scroll. This required me to first find the guy, which was itself kind of challenging. Then I had to follow his request to take a Blank Lexicon to a particular Dwemer ruin, get it filled with data out of the Elder Scroll there, and bring the Lexicon back to him!
I’m going to go ahead and put even the highlights list behind the More tag, because the bullet points by themselves are long and spoilery!
