Finally Complete

As the three people (and I mean that literally) who have checked my Skyrim blog in the last month will have no doubt noticed, I have't updated in about three months. Now, there are a few reasons for this, so I thought I'd write a post updating the minute number of people who are interested...

Swindler's Cave

As Salria approaches Swindler's Cave, a single bandit runs out. He is stopped by two arrows before he's made it three feet.  There's a convenient steel helmet lying outside the entrance that offers a lot more damage protection, I swap out my iron helmet for that...

Side Quests

If you have been following my blog, you will know that I have now reached High Hrothgar. Around two months ago, I went over a number of problems with Salria, namely that she is terrible. To recap, I headed to Riverwood and get into a small (that's a lie, it was actually massive) fight with a couple of Cultists, which Salria only...

The Greybeards

Salria's quest now takes her to Ivarstead, on the other side of a massive mountain. Turns out the only real way to get there is to walk around the north edge of it to get to this town. It's a long walk, and after about 20 minutes, I finally get there. Don't ask why I didn't take a horse. It would have taken half the time...

The Return of Salria!!

As you may have noticed, I haven't been up to a huge amount in Skyrim lately. I haven't had a huge amount of time for gaming generally due to the amount of work I've got going on, so haven't been updating this blog. The Easter holidays have just started, so I'll hopefully have a lot more time (aside from a couple of weeks where...

A Dragon

You have no doubt noticed that I haven’t been updating this blog as much as I originally said. Lately, I’ve had an essay to write, filming to do and a presentation to prepare for, so I haven’t had a change to write much for this. I’m probably not going to be able to keep it up, so I’m going to switch to one or two blogs released per week...

The Dragonstone

There’s a weak frenzy potion on a shelf next to the altar. No idea why it would still be here since it’s obvious no-one’s been here for many many years. The chest has some gold and a necklace. There’s also a petty soul gem in a holder. Having played through the entirety of Oblivion, I don’t think I’ve ever actually used one of these...

Problems

I have discovered a minor problem with Salria. She's terrible. Let me explain.

I started playing again after talking to the Greybeards. My idea was to get a screenshot of Skyrim to use as the header image for this page. So I travelled to Riverwood to buy a decent weapon off Alvor. Upon my arrival, I was immediately...

Many Draugr

Fortunately, Skyrim features a save system. And I had one just after defeating the Frostbite Spider. So it was a simple case of following Arvel once again and defeating the Draugr. And sidestepping the trap door. I kill Arvel again and search him. In his possession is the Golden Claw, his journal and his clothes. I take his journal, even...

Further Than I’ve Ever Been Before

Leaving Dragonsreach, I fast travel to Riverwood, where I sell all my stuff to Alvor. By now my armour is pretty much all Iron, so Salria is fairly well protected. Moving over to the Riverwood Trader, I sell all the food I stole from the Jarl for a few gold coins, as well as eating all my ingredients, increasing my alchemy skill and applying several...
