I love Skyrim. I’ve only reached level 38 so far, but I love it.
I can’t remember if I’ve told what I’ve done, but here it is. On my PC Skyrim I’ve given her, I think her name is Cora (because Dani got fucked up), Daedric Armour, Daedric weapons, more health, Magica and stamina…because I can.
Things are loads easier, let me tell you… lol.
Why Dani on PC got fucked up? I gave her too much money in one go… so the amount became negative. And I tried to reverse the amount.. 999 gold at a time. It took too long, so I deleted her and made Cora.
So far I’ve completed The Companion quest line, The Collage of Winterhold quest line, I’ve gotten a few houses; Breezehome in Winterhold and Lakeview Manor outside Markarth. I’ve married Farkas (yay!) and the steward I had from Markarth kind of died a little in a bandit raid we had.. SHE STEPPED IN FRONT OF MY BLADE!!! Not my fault. So Lydia is my steward now, and doing a well job.
I’ve found almost everything there is to find on the Skyrim map, I think.. although I’m sure there are some hidden stuff strewn around the place.
There are some stuff I wonder about; like I talk to the Graybeards about knowing locations for shouts, and they direct me to places I’ve already found. I know I need to explore caves and such to find more, but I’ve found pretty many so far.
I’ve also killed a cook, killed an emperor and want to kill a guy named… I can’t remember.. gah. He was a commander guy Astrid from The Dark Brotherhood gave me up to. Maco? Something along those lines. I finished The Dark Brotherhood quest line, too. Although, the Night Mother keeps wanting to talk to me, and I’m done with her. Ill go back to the sanctuary, but only to torture prisoners.
Speaking of quests. In The Companion quest line you become The Harbinger. This is because Skjor dies and later on Graymane (?) dies. But you manage to save Graymane from the void or whatever, and send him to Sovngard. Both Farkas and his brother, Vilkas, thinks that he’s on the right idea, so you heal them of their lycanthropy. And thusly you can marry one of them.
Anyway… speaking of Skjor. He dies. But.. I was playing yesterday and…well… Aela and some other girl was out..walking Skjor, so to speak…
I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s nice of the girls to hang out with the dead on their day off.
And speaking of weird. I decided to do a Skyrim tour. Like I started in Riften and walked to all the towns in Skyrim. Large ones, at least. On the way I came across a castle with meanies in it. They attacked me.. Threw everything they had at me.. and I was suffering a little. When I was done killing them I continued on my way.. and I saw someone running towards me. I thought nothing of it until he was at my side, saying “Good to see you, dear”. Farkas! Who let you out of your cage?? I can imagine him, sitting at home and suddenly getting tingling in his Cora senses. “She’s in trouble!” and then set of running to save me. It’s a nice, romantic idea, and I know that’s not the truth, but still.. Leave me alone!
I “hired” him as a follower so keep him safe. I do not want him to die!!! I don’t know what I’ll do if he dies. Well, I resurrect him, but it won’t be the same, in a way. Silly, I know, but still… So we ran along, killing things.. and he almost died a few times, so when we got to Winterhold I told him to go home. I have a feeling that if he’s on his own he’s good, he can’t die.. but as soon as he’s with me and he gets in trouble, he can die. So it would be best if he was on his own all the time. I guess…
I’ve done a few more wanderings, and Farkas and some other Companions were found by me, killing a bear… I laughed, because it was comical watching them running the same stretch of road, back and forth, for a few minutes.
But I do my best to keep him alive. I’ll always look out for my man. I just wish he’d wear the Daedric armour I gave him. I mean.. I gave it to him so he’d be safe, but he won’t wear it. It’s a mind boggling thing.
I know I need to revisit a lot of the places I’ve been. I know I’ve missed a lot of hidden secrets and stuff. Some of the places I’ve already visited are harder to get into now. One such place is Silversomething something, and I can’t get a gate to open. You’re supposed to take a helmet off a pressure plate, and the door opens..and I’ve done it SO many times, but it doesn’t want to open. I’m starting to get really annoyed. I guess I’ll wait a little and see if it’ll respawn or something.
Another thing that’s a little annoying to me is the fact that people keep telling Farkas that he’s stupid. He’s not. He’s as bright as the sun. I’ve seen him read! I’ve seen him dabble in alchemy… even though, from behind, it looked like he was dabbling with something else… :/
Knows how to swing a broom…
But he is a man of few words, but he makes you feel very special when you come home from a long day and he just sits there and looks at you lovingly.
But all this new camera stuff is something to get used to…
I’m sure even the best model gets closed eyes pictures every now and then. I forgive you.
And the fucking Blades!!! They want me to kill Paarthurnax.. So far he’s been more helpful than the Blades! Seriously! I will not kill that dragon unless and until he attacks me! Just imagine killing of the one person in the world that has the most knowledge of everything. So what if he used to be Alduins lieutenant. He’s not any more and the fact that he’s been sitting at the top of the world, contemplating his navel, and peace, ever since the last dragon, except for him, died, speaks volumes! The Blades are supposed to serve me.. I’m not supposed to do whatever the hell they want me to do. In this one thing I’ll wilfully disobey them. Vehemently so! I’ll protect him with my own life.
I think that’s about it. I should start the Dawnguard quest thing soon. The vampires around Skyrim are starting to get really annoying. I’ll kill them all. I won’t become one of them. I remember I saw one, running across country and over hills. I got really suspicious. There is no way she wasn’t up to something.. so I killed her. It’s better that way.
I know I have to go back to Solstheim, too.. and I’m not looking forward to that. Oh well. There is work to be done. The life of a Dragonborn is an action packed one.
