10,000th post. No better place to have it than the thread im King of.
I've absorbed all your souls along the way. Thank you for making me that more awesome
Spoiler for :
I've murdered countless Argonians along the way, followed a female Argonian today and tortured her before killing her. Used paralyze on her then would cast Rout on her. So she would be scared for her life and trying to run away but couldn't because she was paralyzed. Ended up killing her with my Fury Sword which is my go to sword for killing scum of Skyrim
Spoiler for Scum:
Still think my characters are powerful enough to take on an army of McQueens unfinished characters or LC's Arya. McQueen's army will no doubt be full of low level jobbers who i can solo with ease. Plasma Cutter and Stasis Bow would make quick work of that army of quitters. And any fight with LC will obviously be a handicap match. Nowhere to hide to when my Dremora would smell the fear dripping all over you. Britney Breton or Arya will no doubt taste my blade, of course i'll give you the option on how you want to go. Can cast mayhem on you and make you go insane till guards kill you, death by Chaos Blade or my favorite atm Death by Sun
Oh and Werebears suck was cleansing a Stone and summoned one to help with the Lurker fight. While the fight i was wondering where it was and the Werebitch was hiding behind the Stone while me and Lydia fought it. Wonder if they'll help if im fighting skeever or a chicken.
I was fighting him straight up with honor and 2 Dremora, Lydia and a Dragon I'll one shot him once i get to lvl 80 because i know i can since i have awesome potions, poisons and my archery is so op i can one shot dragons when i have the right gear.
You won't be able to sneak attack me though, detect life FTW if you do get close i would have already casted Dragonhide which makes me 80% resistant to physical attacks.
Would you prefer death by Chaos Blade or Death by Sun?
Whenever I travel now I'm constantly using Detect Life so I know what's coming, I don't think you'd surprise me at all and besides once you slip up the Dremora I would have already duel cast summoned would be on you. I'd equip a sun arrow with Slow and that should be victory. If that doesn't work I can always parry you if we sword fight, your pyromancy won't work here because my Blades Armor is soooooo awesome against fire and frost.
Was losing half my life from an arch pyromancer the. When I equipped my set all of his attacks only took a sliver of my health. Hell I stood in front of a Dragons fire attack and barely noticed if it hurt me. I also regenerate health much faster with my set
Gonna finally create some dragon armor tomorrow. I'm kinda leaning on having it be destruction and something else. Destruction because I just picked up the skill today from a Black Book that makes my companions immune to my shouts and my destruction spells so I wouldn't have to worry about using chain lightning.
So do you have mystic binding now? Conjure Bow should be pretty powerful now, it is daedric arrows your using afterall.
I awoke early today with a jolt after an odd dream about Helgen. In it, instead of running from the Dragon, I stood tall and shouted at it in an odd coarse language. Instead of words though, a great power exploded from my lips and struck the dragon sending it flying backwards! I've forgotten the full phrase that I used, but there's still one word that resonates in my mind. Fus.
After a quick breakfast of Salmon Steak and Wine, I made my way to the Riverwood Trader and sold off the items that I had collected in my trip into the mine yesterday. I was a little disappointed to only get 315 Gold for my Staff, Scroll and Gems, but with my pack starting to weigh me down, I was just happy to be rid of those items.
The next stop on my trip around town was to speak with a fellow Bosmer in Faendal who, after hearing of my plan to attack the bandits in their own base, agreed to join me in my fight.
With Faendal in tow, I went off to the Blacksmith to buy some equipment from Alvor for the attack. I bought 48 Iron Arrows to fill out my quiver and somehow managed to resist spending the remaining amount of Gold in my pouch on a beautiful Iron Dagger that seemed to glow purple in the light. Alvor later called it the Iron Dagger of Soul Snares which, as he says, was Enchanted by the Court Wizard of Whiterun.
As I was trying to drag myself away from Alvor to stop the temptation of buying that Iron Dagger, I purchased a Leather Helm and some Leather Bracers to finish off my Armor. Looking back, I probably could have just made myself some Bracers and a Helm out of the leather that I had, but I didn't want to risk failing* and wasting precious material.
Spoiler for *:
*I've got a new rule for Smithing. I use random.org and generate a number between 1-20. If I get an odd number, I fail the smithing and have to discard it, (I can hold onto it for a bit so that I can discard it in some water or a distant barrel so that it doesn't just lie there forever) but if I get an even number, the smithing succeeds.
From Level 75 onwards (Including Legendary) I will succeed 100% of the time. (The chances of me reaching Level 75 in Smithing are quite slim, so I doubt I'll actually get to this point for a looooong time.)
By the time Faendal and I were done getting our equipment together, the sun had started to set and I decided it was time to restock my food supplies and decided to take Alvor up on his offered hospitality and set about making some food for the coming parts of my journey. By the time I was done cooking, it was getting late, so Faendal and I accepted Alvor's offer to stay for dinner and we all had a fantastic meal consisting of Pheasant, Venison, Salmon, Carrots, Potatoes with some Honningbrew Mead and an Apple Pie.
As we said our farewells to Alvor and his family, Faendal and I headed off to the Sleeping Giant Inn, booked two rooms for the night and discussed our plans for attack well into the night before we decided to call it a day and head off to sleep.
Spoiler for Day 4 (Turdas, 21st of Last Seed):
I dreamt of Helgen again last night.
Delphine woke me up with a shake of my shoulders after what seemed like 10 seconds of sleep and handed me a steaming bowl of Apple Cabbage Stew before walking off to wake up Faendal. As bleary eyed as I was, I walked over to my rooms wardrobe and set out all of the gear I would need for my attack on the Bandits base and went over the plan of attack in my mind again and again.
Half an hour later, Faendal and I left the Inn and were on our way to the Embershard Mine with only the sounds of our feet padding on the path, the distant crashing of a waterfall and the wind through the trees accompanying us.
It took another 30 minutes to reach the mines where we went over the plan one last time and then we opened the door and went in.
I went in expecting the worst. I was looking for extra traps, more guards or at least a general sign that the bandits had found their dead guardsmen and locked the entire mine down looking for me, but there was none of this. Instead, we had a clear path to the heart of the entire mine and soon enough we were there.
Straight off, I could see one bandit patrolling the wooden bridges built above the underground lake, another stood beside a forge, but for all the time I spent looking, I could find no-one else, so we struck.
Looking down at the Woman by the forge, my hunter's eyes could see that she was the clear target for our first attack, so as she was tending to the forge, we struck. I fired first striking her in the back of her exposed calf muscle and as she turned around to find her attacker, Faendal and I both fired multiple arrows into her face and neck to get the kill. I hurried down to the body to retrieve any arrows that I could and found multiple arrows worth keeping, some gold, some lockpicks and an amethyst that she must have been hiding from her fellow bandits!
Moving forward, we reached the start of the wooden bridge, which was lined with multiple torches, so I had Faendal take them down or put them out to give us as much darkness as was possible in a room with very little ceiling.
After waiting for what felt like weeks, the Bandit patrolling the bridge came into the area that we had locked down and both Faendal and I fired 3 arrows into her chest and one into her neck which was enough to kill her. As we walked over to her body to collect our loot, we heard a roar to our left and a Battleaxe came crashing down right in front of my nose. Fortunately, the Bandit must have been sleeping when we took care of his friends as he was still a little sluggish and after a few slashes from Faendal's Iron Dagger and a few shots from my Bow, we dealt with the axe carrying brute and took our prize from him and the other bandit on the bridge.
As we looked around for more items, we noticed that there was still more to this mine and as we broke off for a lunch of Bread, Goats Cheese and Wine, we agreed that since we had come this far, we should continue on our way and go off deeper into the mines, but as we walked on, all we found was a hidden entrance into the Bandit's Camp which took us out onto a part of the hill a little closer to Riverwood, so we decided to head back home with smiles on our faces as we had taken out the bandits that could have caused the town problems in the future.
It was still light when we got back Riverwood, so I quickly stopped off at the Riverwood Trader to sell Lucan the items that I had managed to collect and then started to make my way back into the mine to drag out as much of the Bandit's gear as Faendal and I could carry. This town needed some armour and weapons, I needed some money and the bandits no longer needed their gear. Everyone wins!
I'm glad that I did go back into the mine as I found some extra Coin lying about, some odd Gem Fragments and a Chest containing 47 Gold and another Scroll! (This time for manipulating peoples minds to force them to attack anyone nearby) I also found a book that has proven to be an interesting read. It teaches about the basics of making Light Armor which could prove to be very useful!
Turns out that Faendal is quite the workhorse as he carried everything that wouldn't fit into my pack back with him! I might need to ask him to come with me to find Lucan Valerius' Golden Claw.
I didn't end up with much after selling all of the bandits equipments to Alvor and I had even less after I split the takings with Faendal. Still, the look on those bandits faces when I attacked them. Incredible. This is the first time I've had to butcher an entire group of people and I've got to say, it didn't feel bad at all.
We finished off our little quest by selling all the items that Alvor wouldn't buy to Lucan for 361 coins and after my split with my new Bosmer friend, I had a rather respectable fortune of 644 Gold, which is enough to buy that shiny purple blade... Which I shouldn't buy.. But I want..
I finished up the day with the Wine flowing, the Stew delicious and the Songs coming in fast.. Even as I sit down to write this entry, I can still hear Sven's lute ringing in my head, which is a little fuzzy from all the wine I've consumed.
Yeah Soup I have Mystic Binding and the bow is pretty strong. It's not 600 damage strong like I could get a dragon bow but right now it's over 200 damage and I kill most things on a sneak attack. I like this because it takes me back to my very first Katniss playthrough. I have to approach things more strategically this way which puts alot more fun back into the game since my stealth assassin character is so overpowered.
