Traversing the lands of Skyrim, just like any old Nord.

Day Six: Chasing Stags

Basically, this is a play-through of the PC game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but in a non-linear fashion. I am playing the game as if I was an average Nord, kind of like an NPC (Non Player Character) being thrown into the position of the Dragonborn, and I’m acting and reacting like a normal Nord would.

Yesterday marked the day of my first robbery, as I broke into Lod’s house in my underwear and stole a note for Dengeir and some gold for myself. I also aided in worsening the Jarl’s drinking problem, delivered some ashes to a priest and crafted a bucket load of potions. Successful? I think so!

Sitting at a table with Runil.I wake at 6:30 this morning. I head out of my room and sit at a table with Runil, the priest I delivered the ashes to yesterday. I make small talk with him, munch on a potato, then head over to Dengeir’s house to give him the letter. When I arrive, it appears that his door is locked, and so I sit on the bench outside and wait for an hour until he unlocks it. I head inside and hand him the note. He goes on about Lod making weapons for the imperials, then gives me 250 gold! Wow! That’s a lot of money! I could buy myself a house with this! Or maybe just a sword. (more…)

Day Five: The Ultimate Heist

Basically, this is a play-through of the PC game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but in a non-linear fashion. I am playing the game as if I was an average Nord, kind of like an NPC (Non Player Character) being thrown into the position of the Dragonborn, and I’m acting and reacting like a normal Nord would.

Yesterday, I obliterated the very first skeletons I’d ever encountered, met a girl whom I will potentially marry one day named Narri, and met another lutist, this one just as mundane and irritating as the last one.

A woman of many words...I spoil myself with a bit of a sleep in this morning for all my hard work yesterday. I wake up at 6am and buy some bread from Valga for my breakfast. I also make small talk with Narri, who doesn’t have too much to say. I also meet a guy in the Inn named Solaf who tells me he’s a Stormcloak. Apparently there’s a civil war between the Stormcloaks and the Imperials going on or something. But I don’t pay too much attention to current events. I death stare Delacourt (the new bard) as I munch on my yummy bread, then head out the door to explore this new town. (more…)


Day Four: Battling the Undead, Finding True Love, and More Skinny Dipping

Basically, this is a play-through of the PC game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, but in a non-linear fashion. I am playing the game as if I was an average Nord, kind of like an NPC (Non Player Character) being thrown into the position of the Dragonborn, and I’m acting and reacting like a normal Nord would.

Yesterday I helped Faendal spoil Sven’s attempts at making Camilla fall in love with him, I helped Alvor at his forge, Skinny dipped in a lake and decided to leave Riverwood and head to Falkreath in search of a Smelter.

Goodbye and good riddance, RiverwoodI rise early on day four, ready for the long walk to Falkreath. I estimate it will take me longer than a day, so I sell some leftover ingredients and buy a couple of bottles of ale, some baked potatoes and a green apple from my good friend Orgnar. I bid farewell to him, and bid good riddance to Sven as I walk out the door, munching on my pheasant breast for breakfast. I head over to the Riverwood Trader (which is open, despite it being 4:45am. It must be one of those 24-hour shops, I guess) and buy myself a potion of minor healing (in case of any dangerous encounters) for 51 gold.

Suddenly, I realise I forgot to put the woodcutter’s axe back yesterday! Oh no! I spent a whole night with someone else’s axe! I sure hope they didn’t miss it! And I most certainly hope they don’t know that it was me who took it! I hurry over to put it back, and head south-west on the road to Falkreath. (more…)
