The Seekers - Part 8: Lost, but not Forgotten

Posted on June 1, 2013 at 8:53am 12 Comments

Ariem and Rykon spun around to see an Imperial in his late fifties. He wore grey hair and a beard over his stern but calm face, but his eyes hid secrets that even the oldest of Altmer could not hope to uncover. He wore a padded brown coat, and his hand rested on a sword of the finest steel belted to his waist – and he looked like he knew how to use it. “How did you get here?” he asked. “You have not completed the trials!”

“Please, this is a matter of utmost – “

Ariem was cut…

The Seekers - Part 7: Restored

Posted on April 15, 2013 at 7:26pm 3 Comments

A couple hours of flying later, Serana dropped Rykon and Ariem by a cave mouth just to the east of a river in the northern part of the Reach. The pair stretched a little, their muscles numb from hanging in Serana's grip. Rykon was a bit nauseous but Ariemw as okay. The vampire reverted to her Nord form.

"Well, my friends, here we are. Darkfall Cave."

"Doesn't look like much," Rykon said. "What should we expect inside?"

"Shouldn't be anything you need to kill. But you will need…

The Seekers - Part 6: Light in the Darkness

Posted on March 19, 2013 at 7:03pm 6 Comments

Brilliant white flame filled Rykon's vision as the fireball exploded, the sound drowning out everything bar the dim clatter of shattering glass. Much to Rykon's surprise, he was still very much alive when the explosion dissapated. Over the manical laughter of the Altmer in the courtyard, a familiar voice whispered into Rykon's ear.

"Perhaps later! We need to get out of the city!" a vague outline of Ariem said.

"I- I owe you my life!"

"Save it for later, or we'll both be…

The Seekers - Part 5: In Flames

Posted on March 15, 2013 at 1:26am 4 Comments

Rykon and Ariem stayed in Riften that night, the warm beds and strong drink a welcome reprieve from the conditions the night before up at the Last Vigil. The next day they set off back down the road to Windhelm, deciding to catch a ship to Castle Volkihar, rather than trekking across the entire province. Having passed that way only a couple of days previously, the road was clear of danger, and much to Rykon's disappointment  any form of excitement. The pair reached the stone city in the…

I was watching your burglar video and have a question for you. What mod adds all the high ropes and stuff in solitude that your character walked on?
