Aww, you remembered his name, SR! smile.gif I had to look it up, it's been too long.

Now here are some more adventures, with pics as well, because that's what WE want, right?

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

Morndas, 22nd of Heartfire

Days Passed: 36

IPB Image

Sir Vyvoor arrives back to Nightgate Inn, famished and tired. The campaign at Korvanjund had gone well. The Imperials had barely seemed a threat to the Stormies, who merely mowed them down like duck pins down a wooden lane. Best of all, they had found the Jagged Crown.

Vyvoor's purse got fattened too. Lots of trinkets, lots of odds and ends for him to sell. Even before getting back to Windhelm though, he already had 295 gp on his person. He also found about a half-dozen aedric amulets, some of which he'll keep to wear in the future.

On his way back from the ruins, a voice called out to him from darkness. "Hey, you there! Traveller! Over here!" At first Vyvoor ignored this call, but then his curiosity got the best of him, and he found a couple figures standing just off the road.

"Never should have come here!"

It was Vyvoor's first attack from a couple of vampires! At first, he had run, hoping to get near to Nightgate, where there'd probably be a couple guards to help him. But by that point Vyvoor was so hungry and drained, he couldn't run very fast. He stood his ground, and was surprised to find himself still able to take on the vamps, even his cheap iron sword. More gold, and more trinkets to sell. Ulfric would be pleased.

But first, a decent meal, and a bed calling his name.

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

Vyvoor shows up late to the party

Never should have come here!

Been too long since I've killed one of Ulfric's boys

Argh, lucky hit!

Youch

Ow, hello oldie!

Draugr fight

Funny. What is this thing ... this wall?

One last enemy challenges for the night

Guess who won?

(that final shot makes me laugh for some reason!)

Great action shot of the legionary with the arrow in his shoulder.

That is a big melee with the draugr at the end.

Looks like Sir V is learning some new words.

Sir V needs some carbs for long-lasting energy! biggrin.gif

Thanks to SV, the Bluecoats are beating the Redcoats! And he has the right attitude regarding vampires - according to Buffy anyway. And yes! The last shot is very chuckle-worthy - I think it is the happysmug expression. tongue.gif

Nice action shots from different angles, Renee! goodjob.gif

The first screenie at the beginning looks like from another game, where you control a party from an isometric perspective.

Vampires are no match for the survivor.

I have this wild idea that only one of my characters can win the Civil War. Claire Voyance (my Cleric from last year) did the Imperial side, up to the part when she and the Imps storm Windhelm. When Vyvoor gets to a certain point I am thinking of making some sort of campaign between Stormies and Impies somewhere, and having them fight (without my assistance) on some battlefield, wile a neutral character of mine, maybe even Nassqa, watches from a distance. Whichever group wins this huge battle will be the one I'll game with til the end.

That's a pretty ambitious idea of course, and I won't really tackle it until I'm better at the Creation Kit. viking.gif

Thanks man. Today's update is a shortie.

==========================

Middas, Heartfire 24

Vyvoor does some random buying & selling, mostly in the Gray Quarter. He then gathers up his courage to face Ulfric.

Ulfirc is pleased to have received the Jagged Crown, and immediately sends Vyvoor off to Whiterun, where he wants my Nord to deliver an axe. And I have two words to say: Road trip!

No, no more cat. No more meowing. That cat is long gone out of Windhelm by now.

---------------------------------------------------
Fredas, Heartfire 27

Days Passed: 41

Level: 10

Sir Vyvoor arrives in Whiterun to deliver Ulfric's axe, and plans to just get out of town as soon as possible. This is Imperial territory, and he's in full Stormcloak gear. But then, the Jarl's court wizard begins jawing on about some sort of stone hidden up in Bleak Falls Barrow. Vyvoor hasn't been to Bleak Falls yet, but he knows where it is.

Though he wants to get the heck out of Whiterun, he knows the sound of money when he hears it, and he needs money. So far, the Stormcloaks haven't given him any. So why not accomplish this one task for the people of Whiterun Hold? ....

Yes, he does learn his true power in this episode. Well, sort of. biggrin.gif Here is the story.

Middas, Frostfall 1, early evening.

Location: Whiterun
Quest: Dragon Rising

Sir Vyvoor leaves Dragonsreach, and makes a beeline for the Western Watchtower, where he is to meet Irileth, that dark elf who loves being suspicious the first time one of ours shows up in Whiterun.

Earlier in the day, Vyvoor made sure to craft up some new leather armor, hiding his Stormcloak gear in a barrel behind Warmaiden's. This way, he doesn't appear to be so obviously out-of-place in what should technically be enemy territory.

He wishes he could craft up something even better than fur and leather, but he's not very good at smithing work yet. He finally got some real money though, after retrieving the Dragonstone from Bleak Falls Barrow, and also getting paid for doing a bandit / bounty run. With just under a thousand gold in his pockets, life is looking financially good. See? Going to Bleak Falls Barrow was worth it.

As a devotee of the Nine, he's managed to collect several amulets by now: one for Akatosh, one for Julianos, Mara, and Zenithar. Before arriving to the watchtower, he selects his Amulet of Akatosh. Extra magicka regeneration is always good on the battlefield, and Vyvoor senses something is going to go down (combat-wise) even before he gets there. Everyone's saying a dragon has been sighted, but has it really?

The sky got dark typically quick as Vyvoor arrived. Before he knew it, he heard the sound of the thing, an actual, bonafide dragon flying about!

It seemed he was always in the wrong place at the wrong time once it arrived. He circcled the Watchtower once before he even saw the damn thing. Once he had it in his sight, he was able to shoot a couple arrows into it before it flew above them all!

The battle was over, surprisingly quick.* Vyvoor managed to switch from his cheap hunting bow to his new Sword of Burning, and began bashing it bravely without really meaning to. Once, he got way too close to its mouth, and found himself losing almost all his health

After it was done, Vyvoor got a funny feeling, as the dragon they'd just killed disintigrated into bones, and its magic (for some reason) swirled into him. Then, one of the guards began rambling on about how Vyvoor must be Dragonborn. That "magic" he had felt was actually the soul of the dragon, being collected into him.

"Try to shout!" the guard began demanding, while Vyvoor just shrugged. "Go ahead! Shout!" Vyvoor had no idea what the man was talking about.

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

All along the Watchtower

Vyvoor got a view

While all the guards came and went

There was a dragon, too

Outside in the cold vista

They wanted him to shout

Saadia was approaching

And my toon enjoys some chow! Hey!!!

Thanks you two. Yeah, I thought of that song and next thing you know it's become a whole parody. TOo much Mad magazine as a kid. biggrin.gif

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

Middas, Frostfall 8, late afternoon

Days Passed: 52
Locations Discovered: 49
Locations Cleared: 9

Location: Ivarstead

Vyvoor made it roughly halfway round the mountain, headed toward the Greybeards, when he suddenly met up with a frost troll like none I've ever seen before. This thing was tough! Maybe it's inexperience, or maybe Bethesda put an uber-troll in that one spot. But the thing was way too tough. Three good swings of its arms, and Vyvoor's health would literally be in the toilet.

He did manage to find a spot he could clamber upon, which (for some reason) the troll could not follow. Once there, Vyvoor began shooting it with arrows. But these were cheap arrows, and they ran out pretty quickly. There was no way he was going up against the thing with just his cheap iron longsword.

So he fled, back to the village. And maybe it's a sign. He's supposed to be headed back to Windhelm anyway; Ulfric will be wanting word from the Jarl of Whiterun.


(I also just put Immersive Weapons into his game--really excited about this one!

The thing about that frost troll is that it's not levelled, so it's extra-nasty to run into at low level, and totally meh at high levels. My last character to go up there met three other frost trolls on the way to him, and hardly noticed that one. Going back later is definitely the right tactic, at least for the troll.

if you have a sneaky archer with a decent bow, you can often get him down to half health before he even comes off the ledge he starts on. There's also a path around him if you persist in looking for it, but you're likely to miss the emblem just past him if you do that.

Yeah, he got trollstopped but he'll be back. Oh yes, he will make his return to defeat that white-furred monster. Muuhahahahahaa1!!!!

Date Not Available

Vyvoor returns to Windhelm after several harrowing days. In an attempt to keep his funds refunded, he's been in the habit of trying to explore various caves and forts he's come across, only to find he's simply not good enough yet to really plunder most of them. An example is a cave full of falmer he found somewhere, after getting lost. He managed to kill one, but then they had some sort of low-walking monster which nearly pwned my poor Nord with just two attacks!

On the other hand, he managed to defeat the fire mages of Morvundskar; though one of them destroyed his fur boots somehow. So +1 for Vyvoor there.

Upon getting to Windhelm, Ulfric was surprised, almost angry, to see Vyvoor had approached the Jarl's throne without first receiving confirmation from Jarl Balgruuf whether or not Whiterun has sided with the Stormies or not.* indifferent.gif So Vyvoor now has to go all the way back to Whiterun. Maybe he'll just pay for a carriage this time. Because my gosh, man.

On the other hand, returning to the Windy City wasn't a total waste of time. I added three Stormcloak followers for Vyvoor to walk with in his travels (a warrior, an archer, and a mage), and placed these folks in Palace of the Kings. So now, my Nord won't keep getting nearly pwned in half the battles he faces.



* because I am one of the worst roleplayers in the world when it comes to following quest instructions, lol.

Ha! That might be rather fun, to make a bard follower! I can lower his Confidence and Aggression so he'd be like this total chicken who runs away from fights. laugh.gif

Yeah, his team of Stormies is badass. viking.gif viking.gif viking.gif viking.gif Pictures soon! I've been getting more into Skyrim lately than Oblivion, which I thought would never happen.

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

Tirdas, Frostfall 14

Days Passed: 58

Short update for today. Vyvoor and his gang head toward Whiterun. I was gonna have them all take a carriage out there, but I want to see how their team dynamics work. He's got a warrior with a big battleaxe, an archer, and a spellsword. bluewizardsmile.gif

He is now Level 13, and I put +2 in Strength, +3 in Endurance, and +2 into Personality.

OH and I added Immersive Armors into his game, so y'all should be seeing him in some cool new duds pretty soon. smile.gif He's wearing Stormcloak gear right now, but eventually he'll want to try something new.
