Introduction, my backstory ramblings. (And my mods for this playthrough).



Hey, it's me, Destana.  Not sure where to begin.  So I'll just dive in.


I was born out of a Civil War, but not the one you think.  Everybody knows about the Great War and the White-Gold Concordat.  Elvish bastards.  I am *technically* a worshipper of Satakal, but he is eerily similar to Alduin.  I'm not down with him destroying the world.  On the other hand, Talos is my boy.  Now THAT's something to aspire to.  A man that became a god.  Another reason to stronkly dislike the Aldmeri Dominion.


Not a lot of people know that Hammerfell rejected the White-Gold, left the Empire, and continued fighting the Aldmeri for another five years, and they left because they lost.  Then there was a civil war in Hammerfell.  These things were happening right around when I was born.  I think... 4E 182?  One thing to know about me is I don't like the Aldmeri, much like the Nords.  Talos notwithstanding, they ravaged my homeland.  And I usually take any chance to undermine them whenever possible.  My father died in the Aldmeri conflict and my mother was left destitute, so I was left to fend for myself while she spent all her time making ends meet. 


I sailed for a little while.  Redguards are known for their sailors, though I was never really much good at it.  But I can cook!  And the boys liked me.  Eventually (when I was about 19) because of pirates the Captain's business went belly up.  We had one last job, ending up in Skyrim, and I had no money and way to get back.  In fact, our last job had us shipwreck off the coast in northern Skyrim so the captain could collect insurance money.  *sigh* ahhh fraud.  Delicious.  One of the members of the crew said that I, being small and kinda mousey, should go check out Riften and talk to Brynjolf about being a professional thief.  


"Well, I used to pick pockets in Gilane in Southern Hammerfell.  Sure, why not?" 


Hopped a carriage and there I was.  


Game story:


Using Alternate Start, I tried using the shipwrecked start.  Something went wrong and I was stuck inside the boat with no way to get out.  Me, not yet knowing console commands very well, didn't use the tcl code to get out of there and just started a new game, picking the 'join the thieves guild' option.


My mods:

I didn't start out with every mod enabled, and some mods I add later as the playthrough goes on.  As you can see this is a NSFW playthrough, but it also encompasses regular gameplay overhauls for a more complete package (combat, thievery, LOTS of spells).  My main thought was to do a normal playthrough and the many new quest mods I've missed over the last 9 years with the option of having sex with anything and everything.

I forgot a mod in the list.


Recommended Comments

For future reference, 'Skyrim unbound' is probably a better choice than 'life another life' for a not the dragonborn playthrough. It bypasses the first steps of the mainquest, and allows you to set yourself to not be dragonborn.

I may be giving away future information here, but part of the idea I'm going to be exploring later is I intentionally put off doing the main quest until very late because Destana doesn't buy into the 'Dragonborn crap,' but finally drawn to it because of the power of the shouts.  


Edit:  Reluctant 'hero,' it comes to fruition in Entry 14.
