25 thalmor

I’m now travelling south with Lester, towards Ivarstead.  He caught up with me yet again, this time with a Thalmor in tow!  That was a meeting I wanted over very quickly.  Part of the reason I ran to Skyrim was that the Thalmor only have a small presence here…  Anyway, this Thalmor mage has been…

24 dawnstar

The museum of Dawnstar was incredibly disappointing – seems to be more of a front to lure adventurers in to collect pieces of a daedric weapon than an actual museum.  I’ve had enough of Daedric Princes and politely declined.  I did, however, help a priest put an end to the nightmares plaguing the town.  It…

23 a new tent

My new fur tent was an amazing investment!  It actually keeps me warm, even on the North coast!  Lester had gone from the path by the time I returned – I think I must have finally convinced him.  Even so, I’ve decided to take the scenic route back to Riften – I’m travelling to Dawnstar…

22 Solitude (the town not the state of being unfortunately)

The job went well, well sort of.  I hadn’t planned on having a hulking, blond Nord blunder about behind me while I’m trying to be discreet.  I don’t know how he managed to follow me, I tried to shake him a number of times but he’s proving remarkably persistent and remarkably adept – there is…

21 really?

Lester found me in Riften.  I didn’t think he would come after me.  He’s staying at The Bee & Barb and wants me to go to the Greybeards.  He’s refusing to leave until I agree so I’m avoiding him for now.  It’s very awkward.  I am thinking about using my status as Thane to get…

20 Nightingale

I don’t even know where to start.  I don’t even want to write this down in any detail.  I think it mostly ended well.  Short version – Brynjolf isn’t dead!  Karliah isn’t the enemy, Frey was, he’s now dead and I am a Nightingale in service to Nocturnal. I’m not sure how I feel about…

19 a new Thane

Well, a now defunct skooma operation, some fire salts and ice wraith teeth later and the Jarl here has offered me a Thaneship.  I’ll have to keep my nose clean in Riften now, but it should be a good cover story.  I’ve had to buy Honeyside, a little home by the harbour.  It’s quite nice…

18 what to do

Frey has gone.  Without telling anyone, very unusual.  Did he get a lead regarding Karliah?  I think I need a backup plan, I’m not sure where this Guild is headed.  Perhaps I ought to see if I can gain some respectability here in Riften?  I can’t move anywhere else, it’s too cold or too near…

17 – a loss

I returned from my job in Windhelm to find that Frey had returned.  Alone.   Brynjolf had been murdered by Karliah at the Sanctum. I can’t believe he is dead – he always seemed so competent and in control.  He was kind to me,   I… was starting to feel at home here.   I miss…
