The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 12

There's a heavy snowstorm when we arrive in Windhelm, giving the place a strange twilight feel. The city is big, but my first aim is to find an alchemy table to mix up the ingredients I have collected on my way here, and I decide Calixto's curiosity shop is a likely candidate to have one. Clearly at one time Calixto was an adventurer like me, but has decided to retire for some reason, possible because of an acquired injury, and now keeps a house full of mementos. No alchemy table though, so I… Continue

Markus' Skyrim Mod Ideas: Garrett Follower!

Hey all! MarkusMasterThief here with an idea for a mod that would make any Thief fan giddy with joy: none other than Garrett as a follower hanging out in the Ragged Flagon, complete with authentic Stephen Russell voice clips from the original trilogy! So far I've found an armor set fitting for the character…

Rikka Northwing and the Sword Dancer: Ch. 5

Erika gathered her arsenal and sharpened her twin swords. Marudil, too, collected his arrows from Proudspire Manor and tightened his bow. The two of them had agreed to take refuge on Erika's ship, the Crimson Wing, until they could determine how they would go about facing Rikka's promised arrival. After…

Rikka Northwing and the Sword Dancer: Ch. 4

On this night, the twin moons did not illuminate the skies. Skyrim was plunged into total darkness, and the anonymous Penitus Oculatus agent prepared to turn in for the night. His home was nothing significant: a humble little shack situated in the outskirts of Morthal, largely ignored by the residents. Inside the…

Darkness Rising

Rewriting took me a while, had to delete the orginal draft due to the fact that I've forgotten the rule that an entry should be at least  500 words ( my memory... duh -_-) Anyway, here's the

story...  Oh, and one more thing, had to change the style of writing. English style looks…

The Duel

This is a story about another way the Skyrim War of Unification might have ended - an honorable duel between warriors.

Chapter 1

The Skyrim War of Unification has been continuing into a nightmare.  Both the Imperials and Stormcloaks would win small battles here and there, but neither side has done something really decisive.

After two especially bloody stalemates outside Markarth and Winterhold, the Nine decided to step in and end this ridiculous war once and for all,…

Of Blood and Fire: Chapter 6: Shor's Heart.

 

As the Storm-Widow moved through Auriel's white halls, the feet of the goddess barely touched the ground, for she moved as a vapor though his halls, unheard. She passed through the halls with purpose, until she met someone. 

Auriel stood speaking with Arkay. Martin Septim was nearby with a manner of tablets and notes at Lord Akatosh's beck and call. The keen eyes of…

The Seventh Path: Akatosh's Demise

Arion appeared next to his elven followers. The vampire, possessed by Molag Bal, was still there. They stood above the ravaged landscape; the rain had cleared, but the skies were still grey. It was an eerie sight: the area below them was no longer covered in snow, melted away by the heat of the spells used during the battle. Large amounts of earth and rock had been moved, and craters had allowed the…

Rikka Northwing and the Sword Dancer: Ch. 3

Belethor's killer was neither identified nor brought to justice by the Whiterun authorities. Some commoners assumed he had been in a scuffle with his trusted employee... while others dared to say that it was Whispering Death that took his life. The case would not be closed for months, but the killer would never…

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 11

I wake early on Tirdas having had the inspiration overnight to try searching Fort Amol with my candlelight spell to see if there is any trace of Maurice. Sure enough I eventually find the poor chap's body in a doorway, next to an interesting book about the first of the dragon blood line, which may well…

Rikka Northwing and the Sword Dancer: Ch. 2

Rikka accompanied Anora to the hideaway of the Order, making sure to keep a close eye on even the slightest implication of betrayal. Even after being guided all the way to Markarth without interruption, Rikka was still unsure of her new acquaintance. Then again, however, this paranoia was no doubt a byproduct…

Sundas, 9:00PM. 17th of Last Seed, 4E 201

I awoke this morning disoriented. The back of my head ached and my limbs felt numb. My body jostled as I sat, and I was leaning to the left with my head resting on a wooden board. With each bump my head would beat…

Of Blood and Fire: Chapter 5: Regret Not

"Tap, tap, tap!" Sol was knocking on the bronze colored door to Serana's room. Each knocked echoed down the stone hallway. The gas lamps burned on the wall with a soft hiss.  He looked worried. "Serana?" he asked, and waited. No answer.  It had been a day since the Aedra declared their wishes for the Night Shepherds. Serana had not talked to the other leaders of the Night Shepherds since.

"Thud! Thud! Thud!" Sol hammered. "Serana, I want to talk to you!" There was no answer. Sol…

The Seventh Path: Akatosh Revived (Ch.9 Pt.9)

The sea slowly refilled the crater left behind by the explosion.  What little remained of the College of Winterhold, and the cliffs it rested upon, was slowly crumbling into the sea. The rain, however, did not relent; the clouds blocked out most of the sunlight.

Cassandra descended slowly onto the…

Freystein's Tale: Battle of Bilegulch I (Ch. 17)

(Return to: Table of Contents)

The first light of dawn snaked through the trees when I awoke. A cacaophony of birdsong accompanied my dressing. This song to attract a mate, that song to mark territory, another just to greet the warmth of the sun. Birds…
