About this blog

Well, here it is.  Now that my story is nearly a decade in the making, I decided I would write my thoughts and experiences down.  

Come along as I feed my most rabid addiction: exploration and adventure.  And, I guess, solving other people's problems in the least heroic ways possible.

 

This is my story.  Destana Stormblade.  Once a prisoner, a slave.  Once a refugee from Hammerfell.  

Now, master thief.  Assassin.  Mage.  Fledgling Vampire.  Sometimes, sex-object.  Lover of Sanguine, Ulfric Stormcloak and Serana of Volkihar.  Mother of Runa Septim, Damien Guevenne, and Fenrir Stormcloak.

Side Post: Pyandonea Uncut

This isn't really a full entry.  I've not really been feeling like writing lately.  Been building up my youtube channel, yes, but I'm also looking for a new job.  Times not great.  I had wanted to do something special for the 1 year anniversary, but I didn't do it, as you can see.   So I've progressed Runa through Pyandonea, Destana through a lot of Solstheim and Damien through just a bit of Summerset.     And I can't really show some of the things they've been getting up to

Entry 91: To Lands Unknown...

Author's Note:  I'm going to summarize the remainder of Fenrir's Kagrenfahlz Journey.  There's not a lot that's relevant to the overall narrative, and also, wouldn't be all that interesting in written form.  If you want to hear the minute details, go watch the videos.  Below is a link to Kagrenfahlz Part 5, where I left off.     Kagrenfahlz Summary:  Damien, Valiana and Fenrir find their way through Kagrenfahlz into an area in the Velothi Mountains called Samaria.  A group of du

Entry 90: Toddler's Tactics

So here we are.  Treva's Watch.  Today, it's Kintyra.  Thought I'd give Fortuna a rest.  But also, maybe she can fill in some gaps in my knowledge as we go along.  I am literally four years old with the brain and body of a fourteen-year-old.  So by the grace of not being on this planet for very long, a lot of things are new to me.   As we passed near Largashbur, a group of goblins passed us.  Oddvar and I put our hands on our weapons, but Fortuna stopped us. "Look, they're not hos

Entry 89: Baby's First Adventure

(Not a youtube spoiler)   Hello there.  You probably don't know me.  And infact, you may never get to.  I want to say that I know you, but there are so many out there probably reading this, and those yet to come.  See, my name is Fortuna.  I am known as many things.  Time, it seems, is a shifting river.  I look at most people, especially the personages of great power, like Oddvar and Kintyra.  Sinidar.  They seem to swim with time's current with the ease that comes from being a 'norm

Entry 88: Puzzle Time! C'mon Grab your Friends!

Youtubes:   Hey, this is Fenrir.  I've been on a real Dwemer knowledge kick recently.  Val and I stormed through a recently-uncovered Aetherium mine and I got new armor.    Then I got wind of an ancient dwemer university called Kagrenfahlz, built by Kagrenac's buddy Ludz.  Damien and I have been doggedly searching through ancient tomes, playing fetch for various people, and getting into lots of scrapes along the way.  Speaking of scrapes, I stopped by a town on the way back

Entry 87: Intuition, huh?

More youtubes:   Hey, this is one more from your boy, Fenrir.     ...Sorry, I figured all the best quest journals' hosts were saying it, thought I'd give it a try.  It's 216, the 14th of Sun's Height (7th Month). Damien and I are looking for Ancient Dwemer tomes.  Why?  Well, originally I was looking for Dwemer ruins to raid and learn more about their amazing technology and history.  But I'm also now fully invested in finding these philosophy books.  Maybe the real Dwe

Entry 86: Read a Book!

Obligatory Youtube link:   Hey, Fenrir again.  Last time I tackled a new dwemer ruin and started to double down on my search for ancient dwemer lore.  Now that there's not a war to fight I figured it's time to double-down on finding all of Skyrim's ancient mysteries.  Unfortunately for you, that involves reading skimming a lot of books, if I can actually find them.      Last time I'd just enlisted Damien to help my Dwemer book search.  We teleported back to River

Entry 85: The Great Dwemer Hunt

Youtube Videos:   Hey, it's Fenrir.  It's Sun's Height (7th Month) 4E 216.  Only a few months since the Invasion of Summerset and Valenwood and already patrolling the Sea of Ghosts is getting boring.  I've heard rumors of some new old dwemer ruins that were uncovered by miners.  And of course, I have a huge backlog anyway.  Mom definitely focuses on bandits and Nordic ruins, so I figure I could focus on Dwemer ones.  One of the mission notes floating around the Bannered Mare in White

Entry 84: Old Friends and New

Hey, Destana again.  The dreams are continuing.  Is the mundanity is enough to call them nightmares?  Probably not.  Last time a bunch of mystery fluid and 'life' waters got spilled on a bunch of children.  I informed Runa and Damien.  They weren't sure how to take it.  Both knowing no bad had come from the waters so far, Runa shrugged it off and Damien just said he'd monitor.   Also, the raid on the Dawnguard went well.  Their members are gone or on the run.     So here I am

Entry 83: Baddest (Grand)Mother Around

It's me, Destana.  It's been a few months since Runa had her baby.  Sun's Dawn (Second Month), 4E 217.  Not seen much of her in that time.  But that's to be expected.  After our victory with the Thalmor, we all deserve a bit of an adventuring break.  I'm going to fill you in on what's been going on.     Over the past year or so I've been concentrating on bounding the bandits, rogue vampires, pirates (in the sea of ghosts) and the friggin Dawnguard, who've taken to just killi

Entry 82: Dragonchild(ren)

Hey, it's Runa.  I want to say our winning against the Thalmor was sweet, but as I walked the battlefield the night after, I think the term 'bittersweet' would be more apt.    Our dead, their dead, they all piled up.  Too many to dig graves for.  So they were burned.  Well, until it rained.  I found Galmar talking with Brutus Brutalis about old times.  They were both old timers, though Brutus had aged well.  I had a suspicion they'd fed him life water just so they could torture him for

Entry 81: End of Empires

Hey, it's Destana.  It'd been sitting with Ulfric, trying to figure out what the Thalmor did to him.     A missive came to me from Damien.  The boys were in a tight spot with a giant dwemer robo. "Are you needed?" Mynisera asked.     "Seems that way," I replied, charging up my Recall spell, "Thanks for watching him." Gotta love Recall.  Because it is focused to a specific location it takes all the guesswork out of teleportation, and thus, has a pretty muc

Entry 80: Climb to Summerset Throne!

Hey, this is Destana.  Much like I've been doing lately, I'm going to handle the narration today even if I'm not present.     After the kids and I finished with our fun in Valenwood, we headed for the fleet. It took us days to find them, and we didn't want to approach Summerset and give away our position or plans so we took it carefully.  Finally Jura used the Imperial missive mages to give us their position.   "The airship's finally here," Jura said. The morning of the

Entry 79.5: Group Therapy Session

Author's Note: Not a full entry, just wanted to drop a video of the thing I did not describe or show.  May be a little rough, and is uncompressed so probably good quality.   Group Therapy After Valenwood.mp4     Also, going to say I'm going to be gone for a couple weeks.  (Next week and the week after).  I'll probably be working on an entry, but it might be a little slower than usual.    

Entry 79: Death Uncarnate

Hey, this is Destana.  I think I'm going to compile stories I'm not there for again today. We finished our victory party (the army was also celebrating down in Haven with the locals).  And I addressed the command group in the morning.    "Good morning.  I can see you're all pretty tired after two battles and partying all night. Anyway, good job everybody.  I'm not one for big speeches like Ulfric.  We're going to meet off the coast of Alinor in about a week.  See you on the fifth of Ra

Entry 78: The Final Countdown

Hello audience, this is Damien.  Since we took Silvenaar I've been coordinating the movements of the groups via missives.  I've actually improved on their original spell a little bit.  (Dang High Rock wizards have nothing on me!)  I write a message, and a duplicate message appears in the pocket of a person I know with pretty-much unlimited range on the same plane of existence (that much is the same as the original).  But!  The person can write an up-to 25 word response on the letter and I will s

Entry 77: Two Nights from Hell

"You're Fenrir's friend, right?" Ulfric asked, "I heard what the old Stormcloaks put you through and I want you to know I've been doing everything in my power to stamp out that behavior." "Well thanks.  Name's Valiana Direnni by the way," I said back.      "I appreciate everything you've done for Skyrim recently," Ulfric continued, "I wanted to ask if you'd be willing to do a mission for me. You can say no, I'm not your king. Consider it a favor. It'd mean a lot."

Entry 76: Sexcapades in Valenwood

Hey, it's Destana.  We're currently invading Valenwood.  Of the main cities, we hold Arenthia [Cyrodiil got it] and Woodhearth [Skyrim got it].  I keep calling it Arentina, which is unfortunate.     The morning after our planning meeting, Jura and Galachad (Sir Galahad Maynard) led a small strike force to the front gates of Falinesti while Runa, Roheisa and I snuck in the side.  It was surrounded by a creek on at least one side, which didn't provide a lot of protection again

Entry 75: Team Skyrim World Police

This is Destana again.  For the sake of brevity, I'm going to be telling a lot of the story.  Even the parts I'm not there for (as described to me later by various sources).  We set out from Solitude on the 17th of First Seed, 216 with the fleet and airship.  When we were out in the deep blue ocean, the airship peeled off to meet the small body of ships coming out of Daggerfall and Wayrest.  They hadn't contributed as much as Skyrim, but this was our war.  The kids went with the airship to meet

Entry 74: Loose Ends

Hi.  Destana again.  Last time I ventured into the Hall of Initiation, solved a series of thief-related puzzles, then ventured into the Alik'r Desert.  I traveled around for a couple days, eventually finding myself in the town of Salas Kazas.  To date, I'd gotten both the pieces of the puzzle to entering the Champion of Cyrodiil's mausoleum and I'd also done a number of side quests for the Dark Brotherhood, an old man looking for the old Blades HQ here, and a few other random things.  I slept fo

Entry 73: The Gods Must Be Assholes

Hi.  This is Runa.  Its been a while.  A little break before the end of my mom's Grey Cowl adventure.  This story happens completely before my mom went to the Alik'r Desert. (It's the very end of Sun's Dawn).  Last time I told the story, my little group fought their way to the Imperial Palace.  When Ariel Sethius attacked me, Jura killed him, making him the new Emperor.  We were immediately heralded into the new titles by Blackwell, and they wrote letters to the other nations about the coronatio

Entry 72: Dunerippin' It Up!

Hey there, it's Destana back again.  I've been having quite the adventure in the Alik'r Desert.  Last time I got through all the trials to get here, I traveled the desert for a while, killed some Dunerippers.    I ended at the Forgotten City, and when Nahtil and I walked in, a dozen ghosts came out of the buildings.  Even though I was trying to be stealthy, they noticed me immediately.  I laid into them with arrows, blasted them with Unrelenting Force, and then even more came out.  One

Entry 71: Think Like A Thief

Hey, it's Destana.  Today I ventured into the depths of the Hall of Initiation.  This is a place fraught with puzzles, with not a lot of conflict.  I was told to think like a thief.    So I walked up to the dais with a teleporter, and behind me a small opening appeared, with a Grey Fox bust.  When I touched it, a pillar of light appeared on the dais.  I ventured inside.  I was taken to a long pathway high above the countryside.  Venturing further, I found a room with treasure and a loc

Entry 70: Almost Buying the Farm

Hey, it's Destana again.  The last entry caught me up with Runa, Fenrir and Damien.  I did a lot of fighting and some sexual healing via the Sisterhood of Dibella.  Damien and I met up with Fenrir and Valiana in Bruma after they'd been waiting there for a few days (and they fought off the siege a little bit).  Point of order:  I understand what Runa raved about when she said the Jerall View Inn was so good.   Damien and I walked in on Fenrir preparing to soak.  Apparently Sofia was sle

Entry 69: Sexual Healing

Hey everybody.  This is Destana!  A couple months ago we won a war against the Thalmor, and since then we've been gearing up for an invasion.  I've been mostly taking a break while the kids go around Tamriel.    So far, Fenrir traveled to Elswyer and got the Khajiit rebels on our side (and scored an airship). Damien became Hero of Daggerfall and, I guess... made a lot of the things in the present possible?  Also he got a new house.  Sounds kinda un-contributive when I put it
