Like you said over in the new Beth forums, Jandaga is all over the place with his quests / locations-to-be. Do you need to take notes, macole? biggrin.gif I find that I do for all my multiple characters in different games.

Renee, I must admit that along with notes I do at times make judicious use of TES4edit to help look ahead.

20210227 Maids-SMCMQ02
Oh, catch that buzz
Love is the drug I'm thinking of
Oh, can't you see
Love is the drug, got hook in me


Back in the main hall we confront Serenity and agree to her terms. With little information about what the two sides are fighting over I had to make my decision based on instinct. We justified the decision on the basis of freeing the sex slaves and in ending the hist-sap drug operation. Serenity’s forces being comprised of beautiful females had nothing to do with it.

To help with the battle Serenity assigned the four legionnaires from the Barracks Lobby to join us. We left immediately.

The forces of the Blackwood Company were swiftly overwhelmed and much loot was taken. The only hiccup was Argis-Slee, the Project Purity alchemist escaped.

Thought I’d go into Desann’s Palace and warn Sha’lra to clear out before Serenity’s legionnaires show up. At times Legionnaires tend to be a little too forceful and narrow minded in doing their duty. We found the door to the Palace to be locked and impassable. Another point of concern.

There was nothing we could do but return to Serenity’s Stronghold.

Serenity was waiting for us in the Barracks Hall. With the defeat of the Blackwood Company the Ladies and I were thinking we’d have time for a little R&R. You know celebrate, drink a little wine, do a little dance, take a little tour of the place kind of thing… but no. Didn’t happen.

Happy with the defeat of the Blackwood Company Serenity says she’ll send her forces in to clean-up Desann’s Palace and free the slave girls. A bit upset about Argis-Slee getting away Serenity said the important thing was that she now knows where the sick Hist tree was being held. Without waiting for an objection she transported us all to Fort Pazarath Grotto.

The half dozen or so Project Purity alchemist we caught gathered around the Hist put up a desperate fight but in the end we prevailed. The head alchemist Argis-Slee was the last to go down.

The Hist with all the sap draining pipes drilled into it looked to be in terrible condition. It’s hard to explain but faint feeling of a thread brushing against your arm was touching my mind.

“My Feache, do you feel it?” asked Kaleah. “In its desperation, the Hist is trying to talk to us as it would an Argonian. It hurts.”

Perhaps if we can disconnect the sap pumps we can take it to a secluded spot in the Black Marsh swamp were it can heal and recover.

As I was thinking on that Serenity made a grand speech about sacrificing herself to destroy the Hist. Before we could stop her she raises her hand and the only thing left of her was a pile of bones and her void sword. The Hist burst into flames.

“By the good graces of Nir, she’s burning down the Hist!” screamed Maeva.

Those faint tendrils of thread brushing against my mind for a brief moment felt like electrified barbed wire.
Dejected, we pick up Serenity’s void sword and several good for nothing bottles of hist sap. I could tell by the way she sifted through the bones that Pym was upset that Serenity’s outfit was not left behind. Everything looted we look around for a way out.

Stranded by Serenity we wonder how do we get out of this grotto? There’s a trapdoor and another blue magic portal. The trapdoor to Fort Pazarath is locked and won’t open. That leaves the blue portal as the only option. We step in.

Funny thing about unknown portals and steps. You never know where you’re going to end up but you’re always happy it’s not in the middle of a lava flow.

Happily, we’re standing in the master bedroom of Arborwatch. Something tells us this quest is at an end. Tired we draw straws for the bed. I lose again.

Well, so much for saving that poor hist tree. kvright.gif

And what began with a blue portal, ends with another blue portal.

20210303 Gweden, Recruiting Silanu - Ayleid Steps
It was mid-morning when we finally got up for the day. First thing we do after breakfast is sell the loot we are carrying around. Kaleah is so happy be rid of all weight. She also wonders why anyone would pay anything for what to her thinking, is mostly junk.

During lunch our new maid mentioned hearing a rumor concerning Eugal Belette and Tertius. Fortune has put us in Chorrol for a reason. We might as well investigate and find out what part Eugal Belette played in Tertius' murder.

His house is just down the street near the cathedral. The door is locked but a spell works. Maybe we were being too cautious as we carefully enter the house.

A thorough search of the house uncovers a suspicious letter from Ruma Cameron implicating Eugal Belette with the Mythic Dawn. We may stumbled upon something important that could help in proving Silanu’s innocence. We need to show this to Silanu.

Later in the day it’s decide that the Pinder girls need some new work clothes so they’re not wearing the same old neck to ankle dress every day. Good excuse for a trip to Ave’s House of Earthly Delights.

It was dark and the House of Earthly Delights was just opening its doors. Unlike Desann’s Palace, at a 100 gold a night Ave’s House of Earthly Delights is way too expensive to be a serious competitor to Gweden. It’s like the difference between going to the seedy PT’s in Centerville or the posh Diamond Cabaret in Sauget. Besides, Ave’s primary business is selling drinks and a stage show.

My Ladies and I have been a little bored lately. Seems like we’re just running back and forth playing mystery detective. Where’s the thrill of adventure, the excitement of stepping into the unknown gone?

Maeva points to the corner where an Ayleid stepstone lay half hidden by a bench. “Time to take a leap of faith.”
Standing there staring at the stepstone a question came to mind. If these are ancient Ayleid artifacts, how did one get in Arborwatch? Come to think of it if I’m not mistaken there’s one every house I bought. Kind of strange isn’t it.

We’ve hardly tried using the steps since we discovered the secret room in Cheydinhal. Wonder what exotic adventure this one will take us to. Only one way to find out.

Activating the step sends us to the corner of the I.C. Market District near The Main Ingredient. Oh well so much for going where no man has gone before. Didn’t faze my Ladies though. In a fraction of a second they were running off in all directions screaming with delight like a bunch of school girls. One would think they never saw shops before.

Your game continues to look fabulous! Particularly noticeable in that city shot near the chapel and the night sky over Earthly Delights.

Acadian - There are some fantastic artist modders out there. Other than picking the textures I thought looked best I owe it all to them. At time I wish I was a videographer. Just turn it on and capture walking the roads and trails. Then someday home TV's are 12X8 foot... oh that's a dream of course.

The night sky is Fantasy Nightsky #1 from 2008. It's old but IMO is still the best. Like the author RGMage said, "I don't want a realistic looking night sky. I want fantasy. I want something that tells me I'm not on earth any more."

20210305 VH-OVB – Between Hammer and Anvil, Ayleid Steps
Well at least they didn’t take the tunnel to the Waterfront and the Goddess Store.

While my Ladies were shopping I paid a visit to the Order of the Virtuous Blood office. Roland was glad to see my return and to hear the Between Hammer and Anvil job had been taken care of.

You should have seen his eyes pop when I turned in 33 pouches of vampire dust. It’ too bad I didn’t label each pouch with the name of the vampire. Some of those vampires were pretty impressive figures. Like that Lord Lo… oh what’s his name? The one at Crowhaven… Lord Lovidicus…

Yeah that’s it. Lord Lovidicus the Grey Prince’s father.

That reminds me, the Grey Prince wants to know his heritage but should we tell him. Agronak gro-Malog is the Arena Grand Champion after all. He might not like the news and try to do the “kill the messenger” thing. I think we’ll think on that for awhile.

Before leaving the Order of Virtuous Blood, Roland mentioned another job. The Blades have leaked information of three powerful vampires preying on Nords around Bruma and Cloud Ruler Temple. Roland thinks the Blades don’t want to touch this and leaked the information in hopes OVB would pick it up.

Hey, if the Blades don’t want to take on these vampires why would I?

Roland turned up the pressure, “It’s said that the leader is an amazingly beautiful creature.”

Bummer, where’s My Ladies when I really need them. With visions of sugar plums dancing in head, I accepted the assignment.

On the way back to pick up my Ladies in the Market district I stopped by Umbacano’s to turn in a couple Ayleid Statues.

“Only three more to go,” he cried gleefully.

What, I thought we were done. I got to take better notes on these kinds of things. Really!

By the time I got back to the Market District my Ladies were ready to leave. The merchants were more than ready to see them go too. Seems the Ladies just bounced around from shop to shop making a mess of the clothing racks trying things on and not buying anything.

We were crossing the Talos Bridge when we spotted a couple Ayleid Stepstones. Activating one out of curiosity we found ourselves standing next to an Ayleid well looking up at the walls of Kvatch.

Rather disappointing. We were hoping for the warm sunny beaches southeast of Leyawiin. Oh well, Skingrad is nearby and we do have business there.

The Ladies didn't buy anything?!? Surely they can't possible have enough shoes. A girl can never have too many shoes.

Well, will it be off the the Arena to talk to the Grand Champion? Or perhaps off to Bruma to kill a beautiful vampire and her clan of bloodsuckers? Spinning the Ayleid Step wheel lands them in Kvatch! tongue.gif

Renee – Thank you. The weather has changed, our governor has been embarrassed into sending adequate doses of vaccine to the metro area, and I have an appointment confirmed for the vaccination 1st dose. Made for a week of good feelings.
Oh, and thankfully there’s an option to sell vampire dust in blocks of 5, 10 or 20 at a time.

20210308 UL Skingrad Outskirts, The Road to Elsweyr
The first morning after arriving in Skingrad late the night before, we paid a visit to All Thing Alchemical to inform Silanu and Falanu of what we discovered about the murder. Showing them the letter from Ruma Camaron reminded Falanu that she had seen a suspicious character hanging around the well at her old shop on the Ring Road.

Good, we go there and see what we can find out.

First let’s make a pit stop at the West Weald Inn to get in the mood for the journey.

“You know,” Kaleah asks. There’s an alchemist living in the basement, Sinderion, who makes potions from Nirnroot.”

“Yeah but I never found the potion to be that useful. Besides the plants never grow back and I like seeing them in the wild.”

Now that we’re feeling better we leave Skingrad through the west gate out of Skingrad. Kaleah pointed out that we were going in the wrong direction. Thinking quickly, I corrected her. The road through the city is boring. Leaving by the West Gate and taking the road east outside the walls of the city we will pass through the gorgeous Skingrad Outskirts.

(Beautiful as it is with its farmhouses and outdoor market the UL Skingrad Outskirts is extremely laggy and prone to crashing.)

A stop at The Merry Tankard. The inside isn’t much just an average village inn. A minstrel plays as Ailis the owner pours us one more for the road. A toast to safe travel and we’re off.

Traveling cross country we reach Shadowcrest Vineyard where we spend the night. After a day of harvesting grapes we start the wine making process. The pressing done, we should have a nice vintage wine in about month.

That done we head east to intersect with a road that will take us to the Imperial City. It’s a bit of a surprise to find Desann’s tent still sitting by the falls. Thought that was going to be closed down for good. We check. Yes we can enter the tent but the entrance to Desann’s Palace is closed, inoperable.

(If it wasn’t for the two maids in Chorrol I’d remove the mod altogether. It really didn’t add that much to my character’s story as I had hoped. I will remove it from my must have play list.)

Continuing eastward we come to the road and inexplicably take a wrong turn and travel in the wrong direction.
Passing by the ruins of Fort Black Boot, we are attacked by a mage and his Daedroth. Pym strikes first.

The idiot conjurer taken care of we decide to teach any conjurer left in the ruins that it is best to treat peaceful travelers with respect. The conjurers of Black Boot won’t be bothering anyone for awhile.

While fighting in Black Boot, Maeva has taken exception to being hit by Pym’s lightning attack a few times too many. Maeva now has a serious dislike of Pym and attacks Pym constantly. Unable to get Maeva to stop I sent her home to Benirus Manor in Anvil.

With Black Boot pacified we continue along the road until we come to a bridge. The Imperial Guard stationed at the bridge didn’t say anything as we passed by. Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary until we reached the center of the bridge. There lying in the middle of the bridge is a book. The book describes cities and job opportunities in Elsweyr.

I look up from the book to the road ahead, “My Ladies I think we’re on the Road to Elsweyr.”
