Just checking my inventory...

Everything seems to be in order.

Nap time!

Whoever took my wicker basket... shall burn.

There are two things you shall not mess with in Skyrim: chickens and baskets. Now imagine your basket stolen by a chicken. :fear:

Your char has the most glorious nose tip I have ever seen. <3

:lol: How did Brenuin end up with your basket?

He didn't, actually.

I was going through my inventory, cleaning out the important stuff (artifacts, unique items, people's journals, etc) and accidentally put the basket in the chest. When I checked my inventory, it was MISSING and I thought it just freaking disappeared like it appeared in the first place. I walked out the door, and there was Brenuin, and a thought just popped into my head that he stole it. I mean, he's drunk, right? So he burgles my house and, amidst the hundreds of thousands of gold worth of gear, potions, artifacts, enchanted items, etc. he steals the wicker basket, probably grinning to himself and chuckling, he put one over on me, yessir.

 

So when I found the damn thing, I just decided to put the story in picture form. I was originally going to go full-picture and no words... probably SHOULD have done that. Might have been funnier. I dunno.

When I first got Skyrim, I accidentally killed a chicken in Riverwood... and the whole town came after me, taste of blood in their mouths. I learned that day... Thou Shalt Not Kill Chickens.

 

If a chicken had gotten hold of my basket, I probably would have backed away slowly, nervously giving it sidelong glances, until I could get far enough away to start running without triggering its aggressive instincts.

 

That nose tip took dozens of hours of careful sculpting and finishing to get it to just that size and shape (not to mention low poly count). I didn't actually do any of that, it was Bethesda developers, but still... it took a lot of work, and I'm proud of it vicariously.

It's a shame it couldn't have been Degaine.  He deserves it, the rude bastard.

True. You'd think that someone who makes their living off the generosity of others would attempt to increase that generosity by, you know, being nice to people.

He's not essential, at least, so can be expunged.  Weirdly this doesn't end the minor theft quest he's given you.  Have never nicked it so I don't know what happens.

Ekh. It's all tied up with the quest to find the Sybil of Dibella... not deliberately, but because they're both concentrated in the temple. Generally speaking, if you do the Sybil quest, Degaine's quest cannot actually be finished... some sort of bug, and I haven't done it for long enough that I can't remember if one of the newer unofficial patches fixes it.

 

I remember reading there's a way around it, being able to do both, but I've never tried that way. Degaine always irks me enough that I usually just ignore him whenever in Markarth.

 

All that happens if you steal the statue and give it to Degaine is he gives you a healing potion. Leveled, I think.

Ha.  Markarth is completely fucked in my game anyway.

 

I'm not being set up.

I'm not going to prison for something I didn't do.

That's always the plot of the very worst episodes of continuing dramas (except The Rockford Files).

Console kill > Wyvern/Wibern or whatever that murderer is on the very first visit there.

Console disable and markfordelete> Eltrys before he hands over that stupid note that's apparently covered with superglue.

Visit the stone den of dickholes as little as possible during all other gameplay, regardless of how good it looks in the evening sun.

 

Now you mention it, I found another vanilla Statue Of Dibella that was conspicuously prominent somewhere the other day, maybe that's how to complete both.
