Morndas, Heartfire 3

Days Passed: 8

Lady Saga went into All Things Alchemical, and was greeted by Falanu Hlaalu. Falanu immediately recognized the blond elf, and Saga was able to tell the Dunmer who she was. Once this greeting was over, Falanu remembered that Saga used to do lots of business in the past, buying up pounds of ingredients over time. Saga is not only good with alchemy, she's good with a bow, too.

"Say, could you assist me with a little problem I've been having?" asked Falanu.

"Surely, I can make assistance to one good friend such as yourself."

Falanu had had some sort of "storage cellar" dug under her shop; a place where she could keep certain ingredients cool, but the place had become infected with pests.* And she wanted Saga to go down there and take care of the problem.

Well, Lady Saga was glad to assist. It took a few hours, but the rats, bats, imps, and a lone conjurer were soon dealt with. It helped that Falanu was able to provide three strong potions of night-eye, as well as three zombie scrolls, but Saga only needed to use one of these scrolls. She then returned to Falanu, who paid 100 gold, and gave the Bosmer a special mortar & pestle, which will grant her the ability to make potions & poisons of a much purer quality.


* This was a quest I made called "Target Practice," which (more specifically) was created so Saga could have an easy practice session, as well as make a few quick gold pieces. Turns out, Saga did very well down there, finding a skirt which fortifies Fatigue 15 points (she's keeping that one), as well as some jewelry and a couple soul gems. wink.gif

Renee, it's been good fun catching up on all of your (and others) exploits that I've missed smile.gif

Thanks Vital. smile.gif Yikes, that's a lot to catch up on. And here's some more. This update is the first one I've got from the summer of 4th Era Year 421, in my RG3 game.

Turdas, Mid-Year 13, 4th Era Year 421

Days Passed: 291

The weather turns hot as summer kicks in, down here in Leyawiin. Renee and her party wind up staying in Leyawiin (and the Blackwood area) for quite some time, because it takes them a while to figure out where the 'nearby vampire menace' is coming from. And for the first time, Renee Gade III also hears about the Blackwood Company from some citizen. Since she got kicked out of the Fighters Guild a while ago, and has been missing being part of an organization like this one, she gets curious about Blackwood Company, and joins them (mod).

But about the vampire thing. The people of Water's Edge don't have anything to say about any vampires, so it's up to RG3 and her party to find out if any of their lairs are nearby.

Turns out, there is a place, but it's not on the same side of the river that Water's Edge is. It takes several days of exploring to discover Fort Redman, even though the place is plainly visible from the other side of the Niben! Doh. Once it is discovered, about half of its inhabitants are killed by Renee Gade III herself, the other half are lured outside, where the rest of her party waited in ambush. The siege of Redman took two days to finish up.

In addition to Redman, Renee and her party also found a missing "orb" which once belonged to Count Marius Caro (this quest was added by me, and the orb was actually a Sigil stone), which was interesting. Because once they found where the orb was hidden (in a marauder fort called Fort Blueblood) they had run out of food. The party left the place while starving. This occurred at night, and in the rain.

Oh no! Which way led back to Leyawiin?

But Renee still remembered some "girl scout" lessons from her youth: study which way your shadow is cast, and you can figure out which direction to go in. First step: everybody's torches go out! Finding Leyawiin would be impossible with them lit. But if they were out, and everybody walked while keeping their shadows to the left, they would generally be going south, toward Topal Bay, since Nirn's sun last set to the west (their right).

Their luck was amazing. After several hours of walking in darkness & rain, they finally saw that the distant horizon was flat; they knew they were finally at the bottom edge of Blackwood Forest. But what was amazing was that they also just happened to find the small village where they'd left their horse. This is a mod-added village on the edge of the bay, but somehow Renee and her party just happened to walk straight to it.

Sundas, Mid-Year 30, late morning


Level: 15
Days Passed: 308

Rainy day, rather lukewarm for the southern parts of Cyrodiil. Renee Gade III and her party were getting all ready to leave Leyawiin. They've been down here for about a month, and are getting homesick, and sick of Blackwood's hot, sticky weather in general. So they were just about ready to start heading north again, when a visit to Tun-Zeeus changed their mind.

Tun-Zeeus, the Argonian blacksmith of The Dividing Line, has been wanting them to find a pair of special blacksmith tongs which were made just for him, but stolen at some point. After searching three places the tongs could possibly have been taken* (Fieldhouse Cave, Shattered Shield Cave, and Onyx Caverns) these tongs were not found, which made everybody frustrated, because now they really want to get out of Leyawiin!

Upon returning to Tun-Zeeus though, he's now told them that some courier (now dead) was reportedly ambushed, and taken to Fieldhouse specifically. So guess what? Everyone's gonna have to go back to this cave (which was NOT easy to find) and see if this courier can be found.

Nice to see Cyrodiil has not been deserted smile.gif



As for Lothran; yesterday he left the Imperial City for Bravil. Nice weather and along the road a few Minotaur Lords. Nothing he and his Spriggan couldn't handle but since it was a long time ago since we were out and about they still posed a minor challenge.

The Dunmer is now sitting in his home in Bravil. Dusk has settled in and high summer in Bravil county has begun smile.gif

Renee, nice to see you adventuring as you try to sort out which character to play. Hee!

Mirocu, so glad that Lothie had a safe 'warm up' trip down to Bravil. smile.gif

Well, not much to tell here. Lothran walked around Bravil late at night to soak in the atmosphere without much of a muchness occurring. Morning has come and I reckon a necrodude hunting trip is in order smile.gif

mirocu your updates ale always so quick, and to the point. Unlike mine!

---------------



Tirdas, Sun's Height 9, 4th Era 421


Days Passed: 317

Rainy day, and cool for summer. After weeks of travel, the party is finally back to Chorrol, and Renee Gade has the appropriate number of bear pelts (20 in all) after months of toil. She and her party haul these smelly items up to the Fighters Guild, where Vilena Donton stands stern at the top of her little queendom.

"You've been told what you must do in order to regain your standing, and you've not yet done it. Don't return until you have twenty bear pelts!"

"Hmm. Do you not see all this crappe I am carrying? What, do you think we're walking around hauling furs upon our backs because it's cold outside? We are in the middle of summer."

"So, you've collected the pelts. I trust you've learned a lesson."

"Learned a lesson?" Miss Gade retorts. "What sort of lesson? ... I needed to collect the skins of twenty dead animals to correct righting a wrong I never committed?"

"Your rank is restored," Vilena continues.

"Thank you."

"...along with all rights and responsibilities."

"Gracious. That is so much better. Glad to be back as part of the guild, that I am."

"I'm honored to speak to the champion of Cyrodiil!" Vilena suddenly gloats. "What do you need?"

"[SIGH] Talk about a dovetail."

Renee Gade III rolls her eyes, and then immediately grabs a bottle of ale which is standing nearby. Then she walks downstairs, and has a slab of salted mutton. "Nothing like some free food," she mutters to one of her companions.

Yup. I'm certainly not in your league when it comes to story-telling smile.gif

--------------------

Today Lothran left the comforts of Bravil to go necrodude hunting. He took the boat directly to Cadlew chapel (thanks again, Sub!) and after doing his duty he then decided to walk the main road southwards. He crossed the Niben halfway to Leyawiin and continued back towards Bravil, fending off any foe he met along the way. Weather was changing to and fro but stayed mostly on the wet side of things.

There was one bandit who did not attack Lothran as he approached. Lothran engaged her in conversation and found her to have 67 in disposition and yes, it was indeed a Khajiit again. Lothran raised it even further and topped it off with a 200 gold bribe to get it to 100. Just because.

Now the Dunmer is sitting in Bravil Mages Guild having conducted business, or rather all but one. He didn't get Ita to recharge his gear before she went for dinner and it may well be until the next day before his weapons are fully charged again.

Renee, how rude of Vilena not to accept Ms Gade's hard kilt bar furs - regardless of their origin! Nothing a bottle of ale won't fix though it seems. biggrin.gif

Mirocu, necrodude hunting is always wonderful sport! It seems like you have SubRosa's Cadlew Chapel mod? I've not used that one but I've no doubt that it is as tastefully and professionally done as all her mods. I hope he enjoys his pause at the City of Mara's guild hall. smile.gif

No, but I do have her boat mod that places boats here and there so one can cross lake Rumare/river Niben easily, even from within the town of Bravil. Cadlew in my game is vanilla, hence the necrodude presence.

Just tracked that for download myself. smile.gif I look forward to using it, Subby!

Also, Melora is in Skingrad, having just talked to Sinderion. Kvatch is next!

Wow, mirocu actually cranked out three paragraphs! Hot damn. rollinglaugh.gif

Kidding. I like the fact that some outlaws (very rarely) will 'turn sides,' and won't just attack us. It certainly does add to the story. Anyway, this update from Joan of Arkay's game should be very mirocu-ish.

-------------------

Morndas, mid-day, Sun's Dusk 26, 3rd Era, Year 434

Joan of Arkay begins to leave Cheydinhal, where she'd come to update her spellbook with something which will help her breathe underwater. That mission was successful. With this spell in her book, she is supposed to head back to Leyawiin...

But it's been awhile since she's been to Battlehorn Castle. She needs to revisit the place, which is boing inhabited currently by just three people. With over 990 gold on her person, she also has enough money (hopefully) to pimp the place a little.

But first... Joanie has heard about a place called Memorial Cave, located on the banks of Lake Rumare, across from the Imperial City. This cave is supposed to be inhabited by vampires. As a hunter of undead, Joan of Arkay simply cannot resist.

And you may notice I stretched out what little in story-way I had in order to accomplish that laugh.gif

Lothran's game is as you know very slow-moving. I may game for an hour or more and yet have little to show for it in the end. I'm also not the best story-teller. And as I come up with them, more excuses are on the way tongue.gif

Lothran went to re-visit Nenalata yesterday, the very place which close to a decade ago would prove to be a certain someone's final resting place.

Nothing much to it. A bunch of Lich here and there and some minor loot. Lothran got into the inner chamber and the throne where Umbacano succumbed to his greed for power all those years ago. Claude Maric also found his final resting place here, having been killed by the Lich guards summoned when Umbacano hit the stage.

It's always interesting when you re-visit a place you haven't been to in a very long time. For instance, I saw staves that Lothran had discarded laying on the floor throughout the ruin and I thought to myself "Geez, I haven't seen those staves in ten years!" That was what hit me the most when gaming yesterday. Lothran has been running past the ruin all this time without re-entering, despite its significance.


I'm glad he finally did it smile.gif

Renee - Pro tip from a mage: When it comes to water breathing, go for an enchanted ring instead of a spell. If your spell expires underwater, well, it can be. . . problematic. tongue.gif

Mirocu - Nice to see Lothie had a good Nenalata Nostalgia run!
