#skyrim still playing

Post 2 of blaugustreborn I’m still very much enjoying Skyrim, I can’t believe what a difference having the Legacy of the Dragonborn mod has made.  I still haven’t run through the Thieves Guild questline yet!  I’ve finished the Dragonborn and Dawnguard questlines for the first time (very fun) and managed to restrict myself to two…

no: house; yes: mods

ESO: The most gorgeous house (in my opinion) they’ve released so far, is currently available for a short period of time. I absolutely love it, from the fact that the whole space is outdoors, there is a complete ship and a shipwrecked half-ship to live in plus ruins and nooks.  Most importantly there is plenty…

#outfits

ESO: Stamina Warden Skyrim Thieves Guild (kinda) Lightning Battlemage Magicka Thief Thranduil inspired outfit LoTRO: High Elf Captain High Elf Minstrel Elf Lore-Master and Elf Hunter  (I may redo these as the screenshots could be clearer)

#eso outfit: skyrim thieves guild… kinda

I loved the thieves guild leathers in Skyrim, they just looked right.  They looked practical and comfy too. I’ve tried to recreate them in ESO but it’s pretty hard.  There isn’t a jacket with the same shape which is also leather, plus it needs the straps.  The closest jacket, in my opinion, has both the…

what to play

so just a summary of what I’m playing and what I might play in the near future. MMOs (ESO & Lotro) The grouping side of things has gone a little quiet and I’m quite liking that at the moment.  It’s mostly self imposed, I could find groups to run dungeons if I wanted but I…

my 2016 in games

blog: well, I’ve managed to keep it going although some months were very quiet.  For the time I managed it, I did enjoy the tues/wed/fri regular posting so I may try that for next year.  Like, really try… maybe… single player games:   I finally played through the Mass Effect series – well, I’m halfway…

29 Ivarstead

The rest of the journey to Ivarstead went without incident.  I ended up telling Lester how I came to be in Skyrim, of the disaster that was Auridon and he did look quite horrified when he realised what he’d done involving a Thalmor in the hunt for me. We’ve also been discussing the dragon situation. …

28 more bandits

Well there’s nothing like a long protracted fight through a blockade to help thaw a frosty attitude!  I had previously apologised on the road, which  was met indifferently but I kept up a steady stream of chatter and his attitude had finally started to thaw when we came across the “toll road”.  There were quite…

27 treasure

[vaguely in-character diary of my playthrough | all entries | mods I’m using] We were attacked by a dragon, it seems we travelled too close to its lair.  He was guarding an enormous treasure chest – I love this part!  We do make a good team, Lester basically annoys the dragon (he has a talent…
