male or female character?

I’ve been thinking about the games I’ve played over the years, and it’s the games that allow you to play a female character that really stick with me.  In fact, going slightly further, it’s games that allow you play a female AND don’t give you a pre-formed character (so games like The Witcher and Dragon…

Journal of Elfa: Paused.

Morndas, 3rd of Sun’s Dusk (Journal) [OOC] I think this may be a good point to pause, or perhaps, finish this experiment. I have reached the point where all I am doing is buying and selling potions… I have visited all of the main cities, towns and villages, and I can’t think of anything interesting…

Journal of Elfa: Days 58 ~ 64 and 65 ~ 71

Sundas 12th of Frostfall to Loredas 18th of Frostfall (Journal) I walked back to Whiterun from Morthal. I had spied on the map a shortcut that looked like a pass through the mountains. The scenery is stunning around here, it was quite a long walk and I thought we could get through the pass before…

Sundas, 5th of Frostfell to Loredas 11th of Frostfell (Journal) I decided it was high time i visited Winterhold. I have been putting off visiting here as I know there isn’t a cart available there and it is possibly the coldest place in Skyrim. I prepared by packing lots of food, fire starters, my warmest…

Journal of Elfa: Day 44 – 50

Sundas, 28th of Hearthfire to Loredas 4th of Frostfell (Journal) I decided to try and widen my opportunities to sell potions. I caught the cart to Riften, then made the mistake of trying to walk to Ivarstead and then on to Whiterun. I have never seen so many bears… they are fast and deadly –…

I have stuck to the original rules – up until now, I have been purposely slowing things…

Journal of Elfa: Day 36

Sundas, 21st of Hearthfire (Journal) I am back at home. The strangeness of that incident at Raven Rock has left me feeling nervous. I have decided to stop exploring for a little while and stick to what I know. My intentions are to visit Whiterun, Solitude, and Markarth, to make and sell potions, and finally -hopefully-…

Journal of Elfa: Days 33 – 35

Day 33 Turdas, 18th of Hearthfire I arrived at Raven Rock. The architecture is very different to anything I have ever seen before. The houses seem to have an enormous shell for a roof and the house is constructed beneath that and into the ground. I have booked a room for a few nights at…

Journal of Elfa: Day 32

Middas, 17th of Hearthfire (Journal) I set off early to Windhelm. I spent a while exploring the paths outside the city and gathered some snowberries. I headed into town and looked for the Alchemist’s shop. The city feels oppressive and the citizens feel on edge. I witnessed a dark elf being harassed by some men,…
