The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 25

Balgruuf is not surprised by Ulfic's warmongering, but feels a bit more confident about Whiterun's Stormcloak free future now the empire has sent him some troops. A legate pipes up that the enemy has been spotted marching toward the hold. This is it then: war has commenced!

On the external ramparts my fireball spell does well enough to account for about 40 percent of the attackers, albeit with a pretty high degree of collateral damage. Once the frontal assault is dealt…

POLL: Which parts of the site do you use?

Hey Skyrim Bloggers. I'm just about to disappear off for the next week or so on holiday (or 'vacation' as I believe you Americans say!). So here's a poll to chew over whilst I'm gone...

I thought it would be interesting to get a sense of which parts of the site people use on a regular or even irregular…

Tales of Blackwood: Haebang

Rain, thunder and lightning. That was all she saw from the window of her reclusive tower at the equally reclusive keep of her family. As much as she welcomed the solitude of the tower, she despised being confined here by the demons she was supposed to call ‘her parents’. Belyane, or as she was called in the family ‘The Forsaken’, was the last child out of 17 others, as well as the black sheep of the family. They all…

Tales of Blackwood: Undeath

Tales of Blackwood: Undeath

Death. Death was something that no one liked or wished to see early. But life did deal unfair hands that way. One could die from an accident, an illness or an injury. Or perhaps that handsome man who gave you your daily mead in the inn had poisoned your drink, or…

A Forge-master's Folly

With a torch in one hand and a maul in the other, the Orc delved deeper in to the darkness. There was no fear in his heart, just the burning fire of determination. He would show them. He would show all of Tamriel the worth of his people.…

Sleeping Hounds Never Rest Long

Silence. The first thing that struck Konrad as he walked into the dark cave was the deafening silence. The residents of Ivarstead reported the screams of a young girl coming from this very cave in the dead of night. A local family also reported their youngest child going missing and they assumed the worst. The head of the village approached the most trustworthy warrior she could find without looking far, this being…

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 24

There's many a yarn told in the Bannered Mare of Whiterun, but no one seems very interested in our tales of the crypts of Korvanjund. Lydia suggests it might be because we rolled in at 2am when everyone is already the wrong side of their mead, but I can't help feeling the tale itself lacks the thrill and danger of our past exploits. The Leggate somewhat legged it through the tombs, her imperial underlings dispensing with Stormcloak and Draugr alike, while Lydia and I wiped the spilled guts off… Continue

Tales of Blackwood: Sparring

Tales of Blackwood: Sparring

The Tsaesci stood against the Saint, twin blades of steel drawn at her sides, glistening scales of gold shining in the late afternoon sun. She was unarmoured for a change, but she felt no shame. It was common for the Tsaesci to abandon their armor mid fight and to use their natural scales as protection. As…

Black Rose

Maven may think that she had complete control over Riften but that didn’t mean she knew what she was getting into by demanding, not asking but demanding her presence in her Manor. She suspected that she had picked this meeting place in the hopes of being safe, for whenever had an assassin been able to kill someone in their own home?

At the thought she let out a small laugh and her mouth curled into a smile. If Maven wanted to believe that she had the upper hand let her, but if for one…
