I know the heading is basically the same as the former entry, but I have to say it’s not an easy life for my Dragonborn at the moment. I’ve decided that it’s best for her to get our of Whiterun. So I travelled around, opening up the rest of the larger cities so that she can fast travel (and to get away from Farkas for a bit). One of the places was Markarth, and the first thing she saw when she got there was a woman getting killed. A violent town. She should have just walked away right then, but she was suckered into staying by a pretty face. A man named Eltrys. He said she had dropped a note and was all “Oh, this is totally your note. What are you talking about!” when she called him out on it. But being a nice person, she took it. It asked her to meet this guy at the Shrine of Talos. Thinking she’d finally get some hot nookie, she went.. Only to find out that the guy is married and have kids. He asked her to find out why the woman was killed and why the guy wanted to kill her. She accepts the mission and goes about it. She should have known it was one of those days.
From the very start of that day things didn’t go well. Well, she bought a house in Whiterun, solely because she was freaking out about things that might disappear from the barrel she was keeping things in. But she moved in and she made it nice. And then she got a mission from the high ups.. from the Yarl himself. To kill a bandit leader in Moon base something. She murdered the hell out of that place. And on the way back she thought she’d drop by the Western Watchtower to see how the guys were doing. On the way a dragon flew in and started attacking everything in sight. And I do mean everything. It swooped down on some mudcrabs.. and then agroed a sable cat and then a giant. Everyone attacked the dragon, which killed the mudcrab and the sable cat with ease… It didn’t do so well against the giant, though. True, the life had slowly been drained out of the dragon by arrows from the guards and Dani, but it was a final thump from the giant that did him in. Dani ran towards the dragon to claim its soul and the fucking giant turned on her! She ran. She ran as fast as she could. Luckily Lydia was there to help, but she was beaten down fast. Dani ran towards the watchtower in hopes of getting help from the soldiers. She saw a gang of bandits instead, but they were nice enough to help. And when the giant was taking a knee, the fucking bandit guys turned on Dani. Luckily the giant wasn’t dead and killed the remaining bandit. And with a Firebreath and a slash, the giant was dead. By this point Dani should have just gone to bed. But she went back to the dragon and picked up her soul and bones and stuff. And she was carrying too much. She asked Lydia to take some of her stuff, but it was still too much. So they slowly made it back home and unloaded. This is when she got the great idea to travel around. She should have gone to bed.
But she was a good girl and helped the guy in Markarth. She found the dead woman’s journal and when she emerged from the local Inn, a guard told her to mind her own business. I think Dani should just move on. To visit the rest of the cities and see if there are friendlier people around. No one in Markarth seemed to be nice. She even got in a brawl at the Inn. She won, of course, but still. She’s really not a violent person. All she really wants to do is curl up in front of a fire with a nice hot chocolate…or hot milk with honey, since I don’t think Skyrim has chocolate.
But the adventures continues. She’s had her bumps in the road. She met a Necromancer who was very difficult to kill, and when she managed to kill him, his essence jumped out and handed her ass to her. So she backed away until she gets a little stronger. Lydia was killed and reanimated! It was very disturbing.. I need to figure out how to do that thing without Lydia getting killed. I don’t want her to die. at all. Or if she is going to die, that Dani takes all the important stuff off her first. 😛
