Sousii had quite an adventure on the roads. Are the healing Vigilants part of the mod? Usually they just utter dire warnings to my characters, or can be found fighting undead. I made them hostile in Persephone games.

I am glad to hear she gave up robbing. I thought she might end up like Dani California.

Life lesson learned right there. Who says videogames can't teach us to better ourselves?

That is pretty sad about Hairy-back and the others. sad.gif They were living that life though, and would not adapt to new circumstances, right?

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

Sundas, early evening, 7th of First Seed, 4th Era Year 203 -- Well it's Sundas, so luckily for all of us, Lord Haaf-Mersey is nowhere near a chapel. laugh.gif No, he is in Frostfruit Inn, in the village of old Rorikstead.

He is in the midst of doing Missing In Action, a quest none of my others have ever done before. This is the one in which the older lady in Whiterun has a son who's gone missing. I had no idea this quest involved dealing with ... uh ... dang. Not in the spoilers section. Let's just say I am enjoying it now, I am glad I left a lot of quests like this one untouched in 2011, so they'll be fresh in 2018.

@SubRosa - healing is a vanilla option, if you carry a disease, you can say "Please cure me".

@Renee - interesting, Missing in action was the first quest which my first character Gottham completed, if I don't count starting quests from Helgen and informing the Jarl of Whiterun. It's a good quest and it requires you to travel quite far and because Lord Haaf-Mersey is in Rorikstead, I see that he's already heading "there".

Grits: That's so cute the way Uthgerd says only the basic things... "Let's get going... What do you need?" biggrin.gif Such a good follower.

No kidding, that was one of your first quests? Neato. Yeah I'm glad I didn't do everything back in 2011-2012. smile.gif I've never done the Murders in Windhelm, for instance, while I know you've finished this quest long ago.

I also never finished the "tree" quest from Whiterun, which totally seems like a quest Haaf-Mersey would do. I'm pretty sure Thor a'Zaene started this quest, but I believe he chickened out from this quest. He was afraid of magic, you see. bluewizardsmile.gif panic.gif First time saw a wisp mother, he was outta there.

______________________________________________________________________________
Souissi didn’t stay in Solitude for long. She sold some valuables and bought a few healing potions, one of them of a vigorous quality, and she switched her hide shield for a painted hide one. Being in towns made her feel uneasy, there were just too many guards marching around.

However, after a few days she was already back in Solitude. After some adventuring in the Pale and Hjaalmarch she couldn’t sell her valuable stuff neither in Morthal nor in Dawnstar. In Morthal there wasn’t even a store with general supplies whereas in Dawnstar the blacksmith didn’t have septims enough to pay for Souissi’s valuable mask which she had taken from a skeleton of the dragon priest in High Gate. Not to mention that alchemists in both towns only had some basic healing potions for sale.

So it was back to Solitude for Souissi where she finally managed to sell her valuable loot and also bought some quality healing potions.

That is something I never liked about the vanilla game. The major towns don't have the proper facilities to buy and sell your loot. So I created a mod that adds general stores to all the towns in the province. That way you don' t have to go all the way to Solitude to sell your stuff.

I tried to get into another Nassqa session but I just can't take it anymore. I need some dumbed-down, generic, streamlined cookie-cutter Skyrim action! (kidding,...)

Here is how his stats and details appear. Just for my own amusement. salute.gif Notice I'm not going to list People Killed / Animals Killed. I get weirded out by those stats. indifferent.gif Like, I finally have a conscience about all the combat that goes on, or something.

I so rarely check these stats for my characters that I didn't even know that a favorite weapon is listed there. I assume it's the one which is/was wielded for the most time?

Souissi is traveling across the Reach to Markarth, battling hordes of Forsworn along the way. They seem to jump out from behind every bush, rock or tree but so far Souissi hasn't had big difficulties getting rid of the barbaric Bretons. However, one thing she immediately liked on the Forsworn, was a headdress which their women wear, so she took one for herself. Hopefully adventurers and guards won't attack her just because of her headdress.

Souissi had a message to deliver in Markarth but she didn’t stay in the capital of the Reach for long. Not just because she didn’t like towns but being in Markarth made her feel unpleasant. Compared to Markarth, Solitude felt much more welcoming. Maybe it was because of a failed murder attempt which occurred as soon as she had stepped in the town. If it weren’t for her, some woman would be slain but Souissi saw through the man’s scheme and brought him down just as he was about to strike. The woman rewarded her with an expensive silver emerald necklace.

After delivering the message, she sold lots of valuables from Ragnvald, among them also a mask of its dragon priest, then bought some more healing potions, an enchanted elven shield and two filled soul gems to recharge her war axe. After a quick dinner at the Silver-Blood Inn, Souissi was back on the road.

______________________________________________________________________________
After adventuring in the Reach, Souissi and Froa Bear-Foot were back in Markarth. Souissi disenchanted her Nordic war axe and enchanted the Nordic war pick found in Liar's Retreat, with a grand soul gem, naming it War pick of bitter cold, because it damaged one’s health and stamina. From Calcelmo the court wizard she learned how to summon a flame atronach, and from a spell tome she learned how to summon a bound shield that not only protects her from physical attacks but from magical as well.

After a peculiar meeting with a blind priestess Souissi decided to head to High Rock to discover what was the priestess rambling about, and possibly find out more of her own fate, but Froa Bear-Foot decided to stay in Skyrim. As the carriage which Souissi and other travelers heading to High Rock, was leaving Markarth stables, Froa wondered whether she'd ever see her Imperial friend again.

Liar's Retreat? At first I thought this was added by the Hideouts mod we're using but apparently that place is vanilla! Nice. So my characters haven't been to every nook and cranny, even after ... what? laugh.gif .... seven years? Cool.

Also, I'm not familiar with that opening Solitude quest either. But it sounds like Souissi has definitely changed her former ways. I like that you are exploring magic. bluewizardsmile.gif~ See, you won't even need mods for this, since a lot of vanilla magic stuff has not been tried by any or yours yet, right? Like,.... you won't need that Third Era Spells mod I have in my games.

Whoa, Mooch her bare-footed friend stayed behind? sad.gif

I've discovered Liar's Retreat for the first time in Souissi's game as well. Because I don't use map markers, I found it by coincidence, it's not easy to find without them because the entrance is obscured from most sides. I won't spoil for you, where it is. It's an interesting place to explore and has a backstory about the events that transpired there shortly before you arrive. You can also find a unique weapon deep inside.

You mean the opening quest in Markarth? I knew what to expect when stepping in the town so Souissi struck the assailant immediately. My previous characters were too slow.

Beyond Reach is apparently follower-friendly but Froa is too overpowered. I don't mind it if followers are slightly more buffed than in the vanilla game but she finishes off most enemies in two hits, making combat much less interesting and challenging.

Whoops, I'm thinking of Solitude, not Markarth.

This is why I raise difficulty in my PC games. On Xbox I mostly use Apprentice, but on PC I have to raise this to Adept, because with followers and mods, the game becomes too easy otherwise.

The moment has passed though. Mooch-Foot is gone, I get it.

Morndas, 15 Evening Star, early afternoon: To appease his posse's growing anticipation, Sir Vyvoor decides to take a contract to kill the bandit leader of Fort Skull Lookout. Nothing but a bandit-run today. Hopefully later he will be able to follow Markarth's steward. See where he lives. Then he can *spoiler* *spoiler* *spoiler*

Edit: what a neat lair this is. Half of it is as though it were in some earthquake or something.

Turdas, 3:58 PM, 25th of First Seed, 4th Era 203 Gentle reader, you will not understand a word of what follows unless you have read and commited to memory the first three volumes of this series, 'Beggar,' 'Thief,' and 'Warrior,' which leades up to this, the conclusion. I encourage you to seek them out at your favorite bookseller.

Lord Haaf-Mersey sits in Riften, on yet another sunny day. Taking a break before he needs to rush off toward Falkreath, where some sort of monster in Bilegulch Lair must be killed. It will be nice to legitimately return to the Falkreath area, which is where his home is. Home. Wife. Adopted daughter, and Rayya the Overkiller, his bored-out-of-her-mind Thane.

After reading the words above, which are from the book "King", he decides he must follow the author's advice, and heads off to Pawned Prawn, to see if Bersi has any of these books.

The Boy has been unleashed.

I usually play Skyrim modded as hell, but since I'm playing this alongside a project, I decided to go a little closer to vanilla. Well, I have Complete Alchemy and Cooking Overhaul installed along with SPERG, but otherwise it's all vanilla aside from textures and the like. :v
