Early next morning as the sun was breaking, Sotek awoke with a start to see Farkas standing over him. “Up!!! It’s time to see what you can really do”. With that Farkas left the undercroft and headed out the back to the courtyard. Sotek got up, put…Continue

Jorrvaskr, the home of the Harbinger, and home to the companions. As Sotek approached Jorrvaskr, he paused by the two giant doors covered in wooden carvings. He couldn’t help but admire the craftsmanship of the carved panels. Drawing a deep breath…Continue

Hello all, Emer here!
As many of you may remember, last year we introduced TheSkyrimBlog Supporters: a paid feature of the Blog that gave members the added benefits of a custom-made group, a special badge, and access to a private group for Supporters only. The goal of this addition was to make the Blog self sufficient so that we had no need for an annual fundraiser.…Continue
There once lived a young boy who was raised in Valenwood, but he was not like the others. In fact he seemed to have more hair than the entire population put together. That boy, was me.
My name is Dar'Jon, with a heavy stress on the "J", so more like Joan then John, a highly common error made by most non-furry beings. I am a khajiit, raised by two bosmer parents. My bloodline is unknown to me, but this one knows…Continue

Soteks first stop when he and Bjorlam arrived back at Whiterun was the blacksmiths. Mainly because all the armor Sotek had to carry was weighing him down. It was also a matter of convenience as the blacksmiths was the first shop he came to. The…Continue

Serana was running. Muddy water splashed as her boots slapped the waters of the swamps near Morthal. The stench of the marsh hung in the air, and filled her lungs with every heaved breath. She held one Elder Scrolls tightly to her chest. Her golden eyes darted every which way, fixing on every shape that came to her through the nighttime mists of the swamp, discerning if it was friend or foe, or just some tree. It was a tree. She ducked under its outstretched limb, and continued to…Continue

So this was something I wrote when playing Albino's Larcenous Knight way back in August last year. Thought I'd share, it's just a short backstory really but it was a fun playthrough.…Continue
