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 Three: Forging the Bonds of Love

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 investigated Embershard Mine, not far from Riverwood. I ended up killing about a hundred bandits (not really, only eight), finding thousands of gold pieces (not really, only about 200) and reached level 100 (not really, only level 2).

Sven is drumming for a change!Looking dramatic.At 5am, my body clock goes off and I rise from bed. Just like yesterday, I walk out of my room to see Sven playing his… Drum? Well, it’s a pleasant change, that’s for sure! But I still have never seen him sleep. Perhaps he’s a vampire? I say good morning to Orgnar and buy some food from him. I pick myself up some baked potatoes (they look like good breakfast food) and some cooked beef and grilled pheasant breast. The pheasant looks pleasant, and the beef looks neat. I try my hand at mixing some ingredients from yesterday, but unfortunately nothing I mix seems to create any potions. I feel kinda lousy, but I leave the inn to head over to see if Lucan is open yet.
