Lydia and I finished a lean breakfast and left Whiterun before noon. She had asked me to make her a fur cloak like mine when she noticed me stitching some thicker layers of snow fox pelts around the collar; I knew the nights would be much colder the further up the mountain we climbed. I was lucky to have Lydia with me on this journey, it was going to be a long one. At the outskirts of the city we spied two mages dueling each other by the Ritual standing stone. The fire mage won but soon collapsed, we gave them both a roadside burial and moved on. The most direct path had us crossing through the Valtheim Towers which had long been abandoned.  As I feared, bandits had rooted themselves in the outpost and were demanding tolls, something I had no intention of paying. Lydia proved herself in battle with staggering prowess, the woman could deflect warhammers like a giant batting ... Keep Reading

It was a few days ride from Meridia's shrine to Whiterun on my "borrowed" horse. Dawn had come and I had slept in the saddle so fatigue was already wearing on me as I climbed the steps up to Dragonsreach looming high on its hill. Farengar almost tripped on his robes when I handed him the dragonstone, his protege on the other hand was grim. This was Farengar's benefactor? The mysterious "friend" that pointed him towards Bleak Falls in the first place; and she looked dreadfully familiar. Before I could inquire further Irileth burst into the room shouting about a dragon sighting; everything was becoming too surreal, this whole thing couldn't be a coincidence.  A dragon had been sighted by the Western watchtower outside the city proper. Balgruuf dispatched Irileth and as many guards as she could muster to deal with the possible threat. He then faced me and asked that I go a... Keep Reading

Of all the daedric princes, Meridia at least stands for life and holds a deep hatred for corruption and death. When I arrived and placed the beacon back in the guiding hands of the staute of Meridia, I began to rise into the air. I was confronted by a blinding light and was held miles above Skyrim where Meridia spoke to me. Her temple at mount Kilkreath had been defiled by a powerful necromancer and she had tasked me with its cleansing. I was to clear the temple and destroy the necromancer Malkoran, my reward would be an instrument of great power. On my way to the entrance I heard the familiar thrumming in my head, the chanting and jarring shouts growing louder and louder. Obscured by frost and bark, another word wall with the same dragon cult runes etched on it drew me in. The same blinding darkness and staggering ice in my mind and I recognized another word in a tongue I d... Keep Reading

Morning came and Hulda kicked me out of the Bannered Mare, I must've drank too much the night before cosidering I woke up under the bar. I staggered into the street blinded by the rising sun when a courier approached me. The letter was from the jarl of Falkreath, Siddgeir, it had been at least a month since I was last in Falkreath. Before I could break the seal an Orc named Durak came up to me looking for recruits to fight vampires. Now, I'm on my way to becoming completely insane picking fights with the dominion, dragons, trolls, draugr, and mouthy bards but the last time I faced off with a vampire was enough for a life time. Besides, they say even a single scratch can infect you and turn you into one. I told Durak I'd think it over and went about my business of opening the letter. When I read the its contents I almost fell into the well with laughter. Siddgeir not only didn't reme... Keep Reading

  The trip was faster than I had anticipated and we arrived near Solitude in two days. There were imperial legionnaires on the ramparts and guards at every gate so I made haste leaving the outskirts of the city and walking further West towards the coast where Northwatch Keep sat. I saw a retinue of imperial soldiers escorting a stormcloak prisoner most likely to his interrogation. I drew my blade and charged at the head guard knocking him aside while shouting for the stormcloak to run. All three were cut down in turn and I sprinted through the brush heading as far from the main road as possible. It wasn't long before a Thalmor goon squad tracked me down, my skin will bear the marks where their spells racked me before I could finish them off.  The execution order was flattering, I was officially an enemy of the state but there was no description given. Soon my path came ... Keep Reading
