Taking out that pesky vampire sounds like a good thing. Clever use of the resistance jewelry and detect 'life' to help. That pic escorting J'Dato back to Leyawiin looks invitingly lush. happy.gif

20210103 Naked Nord
The holidays over we left the Leyawiin home and stepped out into bright sun… err, damp fog. It is Leyawiin after all.

It was a morning of selling loot at the Dividing Line and Best Goods and Guarantees, followed by a late lunch at the Three Sisters’ Inn. It was at that we heard rumors of a Nord being arrested for being naked and disorderly. Apparently it took several guards to subdue the Naked Nord when he tried to enter the castle, demanding to see the Count and Countess.

A naked Nord? Now that brings back memories. Let’s go investigate.

The jailer in the castle dungeon takes us to see the Nord prisoner, Hrogar. It’s a good thing there were no Argonians imprisoned today otherwise we wouldn’t have been allowed the visit, Countess’ orders.

Yep, there Hrogar was, naked as a jay bird. Kaleah nudged me as I was about to ask the guard how often did the Countess come down for inspections. Instead I directed my comment to Hrogar, “Met a witch, I see.”

“What… how did you know?” replied the astounded Hrogar.

Nords are so dumb and predictable. Yeah he met a witch, lost his pant, and his prized possession a hammer was stolen. The only clue he had was that the witch had a run in with the Blackwoods Company.

It’s a short walk to the Blackwoods Company Hall. The Blackwood Company leader Ja’Fazir confirmed that Ar’ahnir had been robbed. Claiming that it was none of our concern he refused to tell us any more about it. Strolling around the common room we met Ar’ahnir.

Ar’ahnir admitted he had been robbed and would tell us more if we did him a favor first. Seems that a package he ordered from someone named Tavael has not arrived. It’s now a week past its promised delivery. Ar’ahnir would like us to go to Bravil and get the goods from Tavael.

“… and tell the elf that this has been Ar'ahnir's last order if that is how he cultivates his business relations,” Ar’ahnir added emphatically.

Bravil? There are a few things we need to do in Bravil, might as well go now. If it all goes well we could be back by dinner time.

The quickest way to get to Bravil is to speak to Yaranil, the Stranded Light Guild Guide stationed at the Mages Guild. My Ladies argued for the Universitum Arcanorum portal system. Oh no, that would take us through the Imperial City and a required stop at the Goddess store. No time for that. Grudgingly my Ladies gave in.

Yaranil, an Ayleid, has adjusted very well to her life and job at Leyawiin’s Mages Guild Hall. She was more than happy to send us to Bravil.

She was less than pleased when we told her that Better Cities Cheydinhal had placed a new wall over the secret drop site. Unable to locate the drop box we hand delivered the letter to Tyrru. She was doing some serious mumbling about security breaches and lives being in danger as she teleported us to Bravil.

Goodness, Ayleids can be so paranoid. You’d think they’re afraid that Umaril or Whitestrake is going to return at any moment and do; I don’t know what to them. What am I saying, judging by current Imperial attitudes toward Ayleids maybe Varanil and Tyrru are right to be ultra cautious.

You could say we were more than happy to find ourselves standing in Bravil and not in some oblivion wasteland.

Haha, does the sun ever shine in Leyawiin?

Naked Nord. You’ll be happy to know the quest you describe is alive and well in ESO, continuing the saga of the pants-stealing witch.

Bypassing the Goddess Shop is probably a good idea if either time or gold are in short supply methinks.

20210107 Sutch lumber, Gweden Cybeline
Arriving in Bravil we quickly picked up a couple of rumors of interest. One was that Tavael was recently killed in a brawl at the Lonely Suitor’s Lodge. Well that was an unexpected turn of events.

The other was that some of the Count’s servants aren’t too happy and may consider new employment.
Working on the first rumor we discover it is true Tavael was killed in a pub brawl. To our relief the publican Bogrum Gro-Galash had saved the package Tavael was able to give us the items to deliver to Ar’ahnir, 5 Kingly Repair Hammers with instruction papers.

Um, these “kingly” hammers look like el’cheap-o hammers with a splash of gold colored paint. Hope Ar’ahnir isn’t too upset that he won’t tell us about the witch.

From the Lonely Suitor’s Lodge we go to the castle to speak to the count about doing business with Sutch. The Count agrees to send lumber to Sutch for the price of 2000 gold. Thinking we’d get our money back in the long run we pay the highwayman his price.

Leaving the Count to his schemes we stop by the servants’ quarters to interview unhappy servants. We found one. Cybeline an Altmer who took employment at the castle, only to find the job was not as she thought it would be. The cushy job of "heir's mistress" became the household drudge, and personal sex slave of both the Count and his son.

Cybeline is not happy with the conditions but will not leave as long as there is a chance that the Count’s son will give up skooma. A test is devised to steal away Gellius’ skooma stash and see who he turns to; Cybeline or the drug dealer.

Oh just great! Now we got to play the thief. Maeva gives me a pat on the back for encouragement. “Go ahead you can do it.”

Using the magical trinkets and spells I had available to make myself invisible to the guards I managed to steal Gellius’ skooma stash. Sounds easy, it wasn’t.

(I tried several times using every combination of magical trinkets and spells I had available to make myself invisible to the guards but my best result was being spotted by a guard who said not to worry he was a friend. He then followed me around and watched as I took the skooma stashed behind Gellius’ bed. Several times I was spotted and arrested. Maybe it was my saber that gave me away?

Once I thought I was arrested again when the guards came running down the hall. I was invisible at the time when one of them yelled out, “Where did he go?” The two guards then attacked Drels Theran and Dro'Nahrahe killing them both. Really strange.)

After giving the skooma to Cybeline we spent a few days at the Mages Guild acting Archmagey before returning to speak to Cybeline. As expected Gellius turn to his dealer for comfort. Needless to say Cybeline was devastated. Now that she is ready to leave the castle she tells us she can’t just walk out, she needs a disguise.

Cybeline said, “Yes, I need something that will cover me, but it also needs to deter the guards from accosting me. Red Silk or Aqua Silk should do the trick!”

“Red or Aqua Silk robes with hoods! You couldn’t have mentioned that earlier?” Oh well, we know where to get an outfit for Cybeline so we might as well get on with it. Off to the Imperial City we go to buy a silk robe and matching hood.

What a hoot in Bravil - fun little quests involving Count Pompousness and his wormy drug-addled kid. Heh, the Jandanga needs a bag of holding in which to stash his glowing sword when trying to be all clandestiny and stuff. I wonder if an old mythic dawn red hooded robe would work for Cibelene?

20210111 Gweden – Cybeline, Naked Nord
Off to the Imperial City we go to buy a silk robe and matching hood. This time we’ll use the Mages Guild teleport system to take us to the Universitum Arcanorum. It should be just about dinner time when we get there. Spend the night in the Arch-mage’s quarters and early tomorrow we’ll walk over to Rindir’s Staffs to shop for a robe.

It didn’t quite work out that way. It was nearing lunchtime by the time we entered the Market District. My Ladies tell me you have to be charged up to shop properly so we stopped by the Feed Bag for burgers.

After lunch we hit every shop in the district along with a stop at the bank until I found a red silk robe at Rindir’s Staffs. I really don’t why we had to stop at every shop we passed on the way to Rindir’s, I knew only Rindir sold the red silk robe and hood.

Oh well, shopping done we pay a visit to the Order of the Virtuous Blood. Roland mentioned another report of a vampire attack. This one is located near the head waters of the Silverfish River.

“Feache, my fearless vampire killer, can you hear the drums’ urgent beating?” Kaleah asked with an eager tone in her voice.

“Juman’ji,” whispered Maeva as she drew runes of warding in the air.

“Hush, Maeva. Don’t mention that name. Yes, we’ll deal with Cybeline in Bravil, the naked Nord in Leyawiin, and then go hunt us some vampires.”

Pym did the Eagle Rock right there in the middle of the street. She was so excited dancing around waving her hands in the air I thought she was going to say something.

Back in Bravil we placed the red silk items in Cybeline’s sack and went to the Lonely Suitor’s Lodge to wait as she had instructed. Wasn’t much more than an hour (seemed like mere minutes) before Cybeline arrived looking pretty good in her newly acquired garments.

It didn’t take much to convince Cybeline to seek employment at Gweden. In fact by the way she was looking at all the men in the room just before she left I had the odd thought that she was going to start working right away.
We left right after Cybeline but instead of heading west toward Anvil we turned south toward Leyawiin. It was very late when we arrived in Leyawiin so we turned in for the night at our Leyawiin home and now OVB chapter house.

The next day over at the Blackwood Company HQ Ar’ahnir was glad to finally receive the repair hammers he had ordered. Living up to his word Ar’ahnir told us he and his partner, J’roga encountered the witch at a place called Marsh-Punk Camp. Ar'ahnir fears his friend is dead as J’roga stark naked and angry, chased after the witch. Ar’ahnir asked that while we’re looking for clues to the witch if we would also search for J'roga.

Hmmm, doesn’t seem to be much we can do for J’roga now, Ar’ahnir is satisfied with his hammers, and we have pressing OVB vampire business to attend to; what to do, what to do?

We decide to attend to the old business in the west first and work on the Silverfish vampire infestation and Marsh-Punk Camp later.
