Raldana Star-Gazer: A Personal Journal (IX. More Questions Than Answers)

IX. More Questions Than Answers

Aela met me at Jorrvaskr's door, eager to see the stratagems I'd stolen for her. 

Have you been bringing the battle to the Silver Hand?  I wish I could be there with you, she said, as she flipped through the pages. We've got them on the run!

Yes, they do seem to know we’re after them, I said.  I didn't say, why can't you be there with me to bring the battle to those who murdered Skjor.  Where are Vilkas and Farkas? …

The Quest for J'zargo (WIP)

17th of Last Seed 4E 201: J’baadargo’s Journal

 

 The Furs Unleashed\A Night with Anise

 

This one has bitten off more than it could chew in Skyrim, as I realize this sandless land is named.

 

There aren’t even fellow Cathay like myself here (though one could claim that I am no ordinary Cathay Khajiit, as I easily dwarf my other kind) and Moon Sugar is as scarce as Diamonds. J’baadargo cannot explain what just happened easily, as it had…

Moonlit Sorrows

"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."

~ Walt Disney

Suddenly Willow awoke and snapped upwards into a sitting position. The halfling was drenched in a cold sweat brought on by yet another night terror. For several weeks now the young girl was plauged with the same reoccouring dream that had created her current condition. After a few moments she slowly regained control…

Raldana Star-Gazer: A Personal Journal (VIII. Something Rotten)

VIII. Something Rotten

I was on my way to Riften, the closest place to Faldur’s Tooth with a friendly bed. I needed to do some planning on just how I was going to steal the Silver Hand stratagems Aela had sent me to fetch. And a good meal wouldn't hurt either. I knew nothing about Riften, and I was in for a surprise.  Again.

To begin with, the guards at the city gate tried to shake me down for an entry "tax."  Unsuccessfully.  Not a good first…

Raldana Star-Gazer: A Personal Journal (VII. New Blood)

VII. New Blood

Gallows Rock lay just ahead.  It was an ancient, single-tower fortress with tumbled ramparts and little left to defend.  I thought I could smell the presence of living bodies within, just out of sight beyond the unguarded stone portal.  That sensation was new, and unsettling. It's the wolf, Aela said.  Sometimes, the heightened senses of the change continue for a while afterward.  Just enjoy.  It will pass. 

I caught the scent of something…

The Dead Crusade - Chapter 4

Chapter 4

“By the gods what in oblivion was that!?” Mjollnir exclaimed.

Faren, with a wave of his hand, send the two Dremora back to Oblivion. Even Nirn, their ‘expert’ on the arcane, was blown back at the level of skill Faren brought into their group.

Faren then walked calmly towards his comrades, with a smug smile creeping on his face.

“How’s that for ‘not going according to plan’, Nirn?” He teased.

Nirn didn’t reply as she…

Raldana Star-Gazer: A Personal Journal (VI. The Circle)

VI. The Circle

Vilkas handles most of the work assignments around Jorrvaskr, and after some practice, I could almost predict what kind of job he had for me.  Today, the usual signs were missing.  This time, his eyes carefully avoided mine and his tone discouraged questions.  

Go see Skjor. He's got something for you. 

Something for me, huh?  Not just any Companion looking for work....hmmmm.  It must be well outside the workaday collection of…

The Dead Crusade - Chapter 3

*Posted another cuz the other one was short.

Chapter 3

In the outskirts of Winterhold, the Jarl’s men began marching towards the cave in which the vampires were said to reside. They had received news of the recent rise of vampires in Skyrim, and were more than eager to eradicate the threat. Fortunately, members of the Dawnguard had joined forces with them in destroying this den, as they had records which…
