Journal of Elfa: Day 15

Sundas, 31st Last Seed (Journal) I walked up to Dragonsreach bright and early and spoke to the Steward. I bought the farm! I have spent all day clearing the old house and land – I am exhausted! I am still camping for now, but it won’t be long and I will once again have a…

Journal of Elfa: Day 14

Loredas, 30th of Last Seed (Journal) Early in the day, I wandered into Whiterun. While I was waiting for the shops to open, I noticed a flier in the Market Square. It is offering a farm for sale for 3,000 gold septims. This really caught my interest. I have been worrying about saving up enough…

Journal of Elfa: Days 12 & 13

Turdas 28th and Fredas 29th of Last Seed (Journal) I have had an awful couple of days. It started well enough, I left Solitude, having decided to walk on to Markarth. The weather was awful, raining heavily and it became extremely cold. I put my fur armour on, over my clothes, in the hope that…

Journal of Elfa: Day 11

Middas, 27th of Last Seed (Journal) I bought some food and hired a cart to take me to Solitude. Unbelievably, as I walked into Solitude, I witnessed an execution. I’m starting to feel cursed. I put that out of my mind and went shopping though. I sold all my potions and treated myself to some…

Journal of Elfa: Day 10

Tirdas, 26th of Last Seed (Journal) Markarth at last! I had the usual violent greeting of Skyrim… A woman was murdered as I entered the city. There seems to be some tension between the residents here and a group called the Forsworn. I think I will keep my head down and try to stay out…

Journal of Elfa: Day 9

Morndas, 25th of Last Seed (Journal) I carried on walking to Markarth. I have started to see new ingredients, so far I have collected some snowberries, juniper and hanging moss. The landscape is beautiful and ever changing with the weather. I really wish I could go off road and explore but given the roads are so…

Journal of Elfa: Day 8

Sundas, 24th of Last Seed (Journal) I ate breakfast and made a few potions whilst waiting for the town to wake up. I ventured into Falkreath and sold the scavenged weapons and armour to Lod. I kept one set of fur armour for the warmth – I’m taking Lucan’s warnings to heart! I sold my…

Journal of Elfa: Day 7

Loredas, 23rd of Last Seed (Journal) I realised that I needed to go further afield to find new specimens to study and that I could combine this with finding new merchants to sell to. I spoke to Lucan and bought a map and he gave me a quick lesson on weather and climate in each…

Journal of Elfa: Day 6

Fredas, 22nd of Last Seed (Journal) I had a minor setback today. I walked into Riverwood Traders and Lucan’s face fell when he heard the rattle of potion bottles. He explained that he just didn’t have the trade coming through to keep buying my potions. I left feeling rather dejected. I walked around and found…
