Introduction

If you want to know where to begin in this story, if you're a newcomer (I've written a lot in a relatively short amount of time), feel free to read the Story Section below for a catchup and just start with the next entry.  Little details may be missed, but you'll have an overall idea of what's going on if you know TES lore and/or play Skyrim.

 

Good Break Points

- Entry 75 - 81 is the Invasion of Valenwood and Alinor by Skyrim, Cyrodiil and others.

- Entry 45 - 52 is the Thalmor Invasion of Skyrim.

- Entry 31 is right after Destana beat Alduin and acknowledged her status as the Last Dragonborn.  Also a good place to start.

 

Arcs:

Or, do it yourself!

 

Story Summary:

 

Book 1: "Destana is NOT the Dragonborn"

Spoiler

1. Civil War – Entry 1 - 16

Takes place from Destana’s arrival in Skyrim until 202.  It starts with her imprisonment in Solitude, includes induction into Thieves’ Guild and College, then her beating Mercer and becoming TG guildmaster, her helping the Stormcloaks win the civil war and getting all three kids.

2. Fulfilling Her Destiny – Entry 17 - 30

Takes place starting in 210.  After a long time skip, Destana finds the Jailer, helps the Helgenites rebuild, then meets Serana.  Runa becomes the Listener.  Destana calls the moot and makes a list of demands.  This arc ends with her beating Harkon and accepting her destiny as the Dragonborn and defeating Alduin. 

3. Dragon Break – Entry 31 - 45

Still in 210, Destana comes back from Sovngarde to find time is broken.  Damien, Fenrir and Runa return from abroad, stronger and older.  She joins the Companions at Ysgramor’s request, joins the Forsworn to make peace with them, and frees Madanach from Cidhna Mine in the name of making Skyrim strong.  They find more and more strange creatures and foreigners coming to Skyrim.  Her and hers train, because they know when time realigns, the Thalmor are going to invade Skyrim.  She becomes queen and Ulfric king after making good on her promises.

Book 2:  "Destana is NOT Invincible"

Spoiler

4. The Skyrim-Thalmor War – Entry 46 - 53

Late 210, Destana and family fight a war with the Thalmor.  They take Riften, Falkreath, Morthal, Markarth, Helgen, and everything in between.  Destana is captured and is tortured for months using chronomancy.  Damien and Serana rescue her, find out how they did it, and help the defense with new time magic.  Upon reentry into the war, Destana uses everything she has to stop them at Whiterun, then because of Damien, they use chronomancy and push the Thalmor back.  In a one-on-one battle, Destana beats Viranir, the powerful wizard leader of the Thalmor invasion force.  They get help from the Legion in Exile, and Destana’s father (who she’d never met) Jura of Hammerfell.  This ends with her calling the moot again at the end of the year and making all her decrees official, including moving Skyrim's calendar to match the rest of Tamriel and new Jarls to replace ones that died (including Madanach of Markarth).

5. Foreign Lands Part 1 "Envoy to Cyrodiil" – Entry 54 - 68

Destana recovers and plans to invade Alinor while the kids travel abroad.  Taking place in 216 (only because of the Time Break, Skyrim's calendars are moved forward).  Damien, seeking to foil a time-travel plot by Viranir, travels back to the third era and becomes the hero of Daggerfall, returning with Brisienna and a kid.  Runa goes to Cyrodiil to ally with them against the Thalmor, but becomes embroiled in political plots.  Jura becomes Emperor after Runa's attacked and he kills Ariel Sethius.

Fenrir gets the support of the rebels in Elswyer and returns with an airship, then collaborates with Damien to help out old friends and travels to Bruma to help break the siege.  

6. Foreign Lands Part 2 - Entry 69 - 74

While the ships are still being built, Sialius, Balfhe, Ulfric and Hrolf plan the invasion of Valenwood.  Emperor Jura of Cyrodiil and Queen Destana of Skyrim request an alliance with all Tamriel against the Thalmor called the White Gold Accord.  Destana becomes a champion of the Arena and spies on the Thalmor through an invitational, then she seeks help with the Sisterhood of Dibella (finishing her recovery), then becomes a donator to the new Dragonborn Museum and a property mogul.  Destana travels to the Alik'r Desert, reestablishing the Dark Brotherhood there and finding an old Blades outpost and contacting the ghost of the Champion of Cyrodiil to get the Grey Cowl of Nocturnal.

7. The Invasion -

Valenwood - Entry 75 - 79

Destana and Co (Fenrir, Damien, Runa and Valiana). Invade Valenwood with a combined force of Skyrim, Cyrodiil and High Rock, with Elswyer and Valenwood auxiliaries.  Also included in the fight are Emperor Jura, HK Ulfric, General Quintus, General Sialius, Commander Hrolf Witch-Slayer, Commander Balfhe Hard-Heart, Legate Calleius and General Tusselle (a new Imperial general).  As part of mission planning, they met two knights of High Rock: Sir Galahad Maynard and Ser Roheisa.  Destana got Galachad to admit he's an Aedra stranded on Nirn and Roheisa is his half-Aedra daughter.  They finished freeing Valenwood, and are headed to Alinor.

Alinor - Entry 80 - 81

A coalition of Skyrim, Cyrodiil, Hammerfell, Valenwood and Elswyer invade Summerset Isle.  Though there are losses, the five nations roll over them due to sheer numbers and the Thalmor being at war for so long.  It is later found that when the Champion of Cyrodiil locked off daedric invasion, the influence of the gods was also diminished and elves' long lives were reduced to 150 years (like a Breton).  They found a secret spring that held the power to extend one's life, and a despoiled one that took life.  And because the Thalmor failed to keep their extracted power from Destana, the Thalmor started to sacrifice the holy power of the spring to use chronomancy to have soldiers that revive again and again.  Eventually, though, they were beaten.  Damien made friends with Master Wizard Carahil and during the White Gold Accord finalization, was given the task of re-clearing the Thalmor prisons in Skyrim.  Lord-Commander Harokir despoiled the spring, but Carahil and Damien found Auriel's Tear - the source of the life waters.  Now the group returns to Skyrim.  Perhaps the land can find peace for a while.

82. Dragonchild(ren) - Standalone, Runa returns to Cyrodiil.  Rigmor has Kintyra and Runa has Oddvar.

 

83-84. Destana's Updates on the family, she baby sits.  Then she meets her half-brother when the Ebony Warrior challenges her to a duel.  In response, she takes him to Sovngarde and he ends up being Jura's new bodyguard (to replace Calleius, who is now a full general).

Destana

Spoiler

Destana.jpg.9d980604651c6046e587f884d038d848.jpg

 

Destana Stormblade 

Queen of Skyrim, Ex-Guildmaster of Thieves' Guild, Companions Circle Member, Gray Fox, Forsworn Shaman, Arena Champion

Age: 34

Born: 4E 182

Level: 81 (As of Entry 90)

Source:  OC

Mods/Quests:  Main Quest, Dawnguard, Civil War, Thieves' Guild, Mages' Guild (Partial), Companions, A Forsworn Story, Second Great War, Pit Fighter Guild, Sisterhood of Dibella, Grey Cowl of Nocturnal, Legacy of the Dragonborn (Ongoing), Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset, Ebony Warrior, Dragonborn (In Progress)

The main character and focal point of most of the story.  She's a Redguard from Gilane and came to Skyrim at the age of 19.  She's beaten Alduin and Harkon, made peace with the Forsworn and became Queen of Skyrim.  She married Sanguine (they later separated) and then King Ulfric (she made him king via the moot) and Serana (both at the same time).  She's formerly the Thieves' Guildmaster (handed over to Brynjolf), formerly the Harbinger (handed over to Vignar Greymane, and she also abolished the werewolf blood rules of the Companions and gave them the cure).   She's a former werewolf, currently a vampire lord (though she's overcome the weakness for the sun).  She was a Stormcloak Commander in the day of the civil war and because of her former contributions and current political rank, she became a General in the war with the Thalmor.  She's generally snarky and likes to mess with people.  Also, possibly the next Shezarrine.

Build:  She's primarily a stealth archer, a dagger combat-type but also has a lot of skill with magic (Destruction, Restoration and Illusion) and is a master in all thief skills.  She doesn't wear armor because of her hard skin.  She has both Dragon Shouts and Beast Call powers.  She loves sex and challenges and is a huge fangirl for Talos, and past heroes.  She believes in freedom and self-determination.

Runa

Runa.jpg.3be68f996034737a6d129cef8379086b.jpg

 

Runa Septim (Formerly Fair-Shield)

Princess of Skyrim and Cyrodiil, Listener of the Dark Brotherhood, Companions Circle Member, Sea Viper Captain

Age: 24

Born: 4E 196

Level: 50 (As of Entry 90)

Source:  Vanilla NPC, Tween'd by RS Children, Created/Proteus'd to Teen then Adult Version

Mods/Quests:  Dark Brotherhood, Better Dark Brotherhood, Dark Brotherhood of Old, Rigmor of Cyrodiil, Beyond Skyrim: Bruma (Partial), Second Great War, Companions (Partial), Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset, Dragonchild, Pyandonea, The Island (In Progress)

A secondary character, an orphan Nord girl Destana and Sanguine adopted at the age of 12.  She doesn't know or remember her parents or much before the age of 7.  She’s the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood and revitalized their organization including work throughout Tamriel and Four Sanctuaries in Skyrim.  She's currently on a diplomatic mission to Cyrodiil, though it is not going well.  She has some form of relationship/connection with Tyroni Calleius (whom she met during the Thalmor War), Aventus Aretino (a childhood friend from the orphanage now turned trader) and Countess Rigmor of Bruma (she helped her gain her position), but she's publicly said she never wants to get married, and was very timid about sex.  She was 'blessed' by the gods with a penis to bring forth a new heir for the Empire and was recently joined in ceremony with Rigmor, finding out she was pregnant.  During the invasion she recklessly threw herself into battle (and love) but survived.  Now she has two Dragonchild(ren), Oddvar Calleius and Kintyra Mede-Septim.

Build:  She's primarily a greatsword, heavy armor fighter, has very good stealth (for assassination), some skill with restoration, lockpicking and enough with archery to get by.  Being a Nord, she knows two shouts but can't just cheat her way through it like mom can and actually has to train.

Damien

Damien.jpg.fd8464e7b7906ea678ac7c6370c56502.jpg

 

Damien Guivenne

Prince of Skyrim, Master Wizard of the College, Hero of Daggerfall

Age: 24

Born: 4E 201

Level: 50 (As of Entry 90)

Source:  OC, Originally created as baby by Fertility Mode, Created/Proteus'd to Adult Version

Mods/Quests:  Mages' Guild, Skygerfall, Second Great War, Saving Valiana (Original Content), Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset, Kagrenfahlz (Fenrir's Follower), Summerset Isle (In Progress)

A secondary character, natural-born son of Destana and Sanguine.  He's pale for some reason, nobody knows.  He's one of the only half-daedra in recorded history.  The only way this was possible is Destana's inherent toughness.  He lived with the family through his childhood, learning magic at the College of Winterhold, then was taken to Oblivion to help his father fight a war.  He grew up fast (literally and metaphorically).  Offered the position of Archmage when he solved the Eye of Magnus problem, but handed it to Tolfdir instead.  He was the one who cracked the Thalmor's strategy in the war via chronomancy.  He then moved to the past to thwart Viranir's ghost, but found she was powerless there (and so was he) and also found out he was the Hero of Daggerfall.  He has an ongoing relationship with the demon Meru, and now a wife - Lady Brisienna Magnessen, and an infant son - Sinidar Guivenne.  During the Invasion he's developed a new Missive spell and has been coordinating the groups.  He and Fenrir journeyed to Kagrenfahlz together.

Build:  He's nearly a pure mage with mastery of all schools of magic and his stealth is almost as good as Runa's (for stealth casting).  He also has a meager skill in one handed weapons, and with his recent time-travel has decent skill in Light Armor.

Born: 4E 202

Level: 51 (As of Entry 90)

Mods/Quests:  Second Great War, Moonpath to Elswyer, Saving Valiana (Original Content), Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset, Legends of Aetherium, Kahgrenfahlz (Ongoing)

The natural-born son of Destana and Ulfric Stormcloak.  He lived with the family through his childhood, learning to fight and hunt from Destana and then living with Ulfric and learning of the ways of the warrior.  He was taken along with Damien to help Sanguine fight a war in Oblivion.  He considers both Ulfric and Sanguine his father, since they both took part in raising him.  He's had quite a few adventures on his own, and a few opportunities to lead.  He took an immediate interest and talent with smithing, dwemer tech and alchemy.  He had a short fling with Agrippina during the Skyrim-Thalmor war, but she went back to Cyrodiil.  He traveled to Elsweyr to rescue Inigo and Sofia.  Not only did he rescue them, but he found the Khajiit resistance and came back with an airship.  Valiana and Fenrir have been doing side adventures together.  His mother handed him Umbra before they left for the invasion.  During the invasion he's helped with ferrying people, cover fire, and had to miss the final battle because of 'airship repairs.'  After the war, Fenrir went on a bit of a questing and dungeon-crawling bender. Ulfric asked him to stop adventuring so much and focus on learning to rule.  He handed him the Jarlship of Eastmarch.

Build:  He's mainly a sword-n-board generalist.  His focus is in One-Handed (Axe), Block, Heavy Armor, and Archery (Xbow).  He also has high Smithing, Enchanting and Lockpicking.  His stealth is ok compared to everyone else.

Emperor of Cyrodiil, Retired General of Hammerfell, Knight of the Flame, Knight of the Scarab

Age: 64

Born: 4E 156

Level: 85 (As of Entry 90)

Source:  OC

Mods/Quests:  Rigmor of Cyrodiil (Runa's Follower), Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset

A tertiary character, estranged father of (among many others) Destana.  They met during the Hammerfell's delegation to the Skyrim-Thalmor War.  Though they haven't known each other long, it is clear they're of the same blood.  Jura's tale is long and has not yet been fully revealed.  What we know is he served Hammerfell's military for many years and fought in the Great War.  He’s got a lot of old friends from the war:  Ulfric, Yngol, Sialius, Marcus Jannus, Valerius.  He knows Akaviri from when he fought them in High Rock.  He's also a Knight of the Flame and of the Scarab.  He accompanied Runa on her quest to Cyrodiil, and when Ariel Sethius attacked her, he killed the Emperor and is now Emperor of Cyrodiil.

He's a very sex-positive old man and though he's never married, he's had a lot of relationships.  Though he appears to sometimes be rough or tough and sometimes plays the old man card, he's always ready to give out advice and help when needed.

Build:  His combat style is mainly sword-and-board with heavy armor, though he has skill in two-handed weapons, archery, destruction magic, and is a master of Restoration.  

(Note:  I actually had to legendary a skill a couple times for him to be possible)

A tertiary character, leader of the Volkihar vampires and Destana's wife.  With Destana's help they took down her father and thwarted his evil plan.  She's primarily a mage.  We know from her past she took part in a horrible ritual with Molag Bal.  She barely uses the transformation, thinking it uncouth, but can do it.  Usually measured and noble but able to get quite angry when provoked.  Recently she’s been taking care of the rogue vampires in Skyrim and wants to forge a new path for her kind as allies to humans, rather than seeing them as food.

Ex-Imperial Legate, Mercenary, Ex-Sailor, Ex-Prostitute, Owner of Heljarchen Hall, Thane of Eastmarch

Age: 45

Born: 3E 405 / 4E 175

Level: 55 (As of Entry 81)

Source:  OC

Mods/Quests: Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset (Background), Heart of the Reach

Daughter of Medora Direnni and Calaxes Septim, she was actually born in Direnni Tower in 3E 405, but was brought forward in time when she was only a few weeks old.  She joined the Fighter’s Guild at a young age, then the Imperial Legion.  Near the beginning of the civil war, her commanding officer sold her out to a bloodthirsty Stormcloak commander, who kept her as a personal slave.  When she escaped, she gave her child up for adoption.  When she tried to return to her home, she was tried for desertion, and killed her CO.  She’s been on the run since then.  Fenrir, Damien and Sofia helped her get revenge on that Stormcloak, and now she’s tagging along with Fenrir.  She's recently revealed sometimes in her travels she sold her body to make ends meet, seeing no crime in it.  In her eyes, she lost her virtue when it was taken, also putting no value in sex.  She called Fenrir a 'diamond in the rough,' even though he's young, she likes him.  She's been protecting the north sea with Fenrir until he settled into the job of Jarl.

Build:  She's a greatweapon wielder, pretty much a one-trick pony.

Roheisa

Roheisa.jpg.38ae6b13a4ab6042e3eeab88570ddcd9.jpg

Ser Roheisa Fleur la Faible

Knight of the Rose (Commander)

Age: 26

Born: 4E 194

Level: 44 (As of Entry 90)

Source:  OC

Mods/Quests: Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset

Daughter of Sir Galahad Maynard and Yvane of Wayrest, Roheisa is a quiet, short, polite, generally pleasant knight who showed great prowess at a young age.  She's been on several missions with her father, but is generally sheltered to the bad things in the world.  Her skill in combat is almost purely natural aptitude.  Also, she's half Aedra.  During the Invasion, Roheisa notes how much Damien and Fenrir bother Tusselle, and she makes friends with Tusselle and Runa, but she's often shoved to the sidelines by the 'larger-than-life' cast members.  Also she can change her hair and eye color at will.  She tends to favor gray or white though because it's easier.

Build:  She uses a scythe (which counts as a battleaxe) and wears heavy armor.  She also has decent skill in stealth and destruction.  She has high skills in restoration and conjuration, often summoning creatures to protect her in battle.

General of Cyrodiil's Third Legion, Member of the Fighter's Guild

Age: 36

Born: 4E 184

Level: 53 (As of Stream from 8/9/22)

Source:  OC

Mods/Quests: Assault on Valenwood, Assault on Summerset, The Contest, the White Phial

The newest second newest Imperial General, she's often willing to go out and do things herself a lot more often than Sialius, Quintus, or any of the older generals.  Originally, she's from the Imperial City, and her father was a Legate in his day but used his pension to become a Merchant.  In her youth she was an adventurer in Cyrodiil, but found being a soldier was often helpful in putting food on the table.  Even when she was in the Legion, she did dungeons and mercenary work in her offtime for the right price.  Tusselle is cool, not taking crap from anyone, but also able to not take herself too seriously.  She's a long-time member of the Fighter's Guild in Bruma, though she found it'd been dissolved when she came back from her last campaign.  Unknown to most, she doesn't value lifelong monogamous relationships and doesn't see herself ever getting tied down.

Build:  She fights with her bare hands (she has good light armor skill for the Ordinator perks) and wears heavy armor.  She is a master at stealth, and has passable skills in Destruction, Restoration and Alteration.  She also has a decent number of abilities from the Warrior Poet mod, which gives her powers that spend stamina, rather than magicka.

Originally from the country outside Kvatch, his father was in the Imperial Navy and has since retired.  He defected from the Empire with General Sialius' legion once it was usurped by Ariel Sethius.  He is a classic gentleman, and though he has some sort of feelings for Runa, he's not pushy. 

He's the personal guard for Jura, the Cyrodiilic Emperor.  Upon Sialius' capture by the Thalmor, he got spot-promoted to General.

He’s a sword-and-board heavily armored type.

Originally called "Chest baby," Fortuna was found locked in a chest in the Hall of Initiation.  Destana rescued her and brought her to Constance Michel at the Orphanage in Riften.  Though the orphanage has seen improvements, she's still an orphan with no idea who her parents are.  Some people have speculated she was placed there via magic.  She was named by Constance due to her being a 'fortune' in a chest.  She's only barely four, but due to her exposure to the Life Waters, she looks, acts and effectively is a thirteen year old.  Raised in Riften and well-liked by the people there, she has contacts in the thieves' guild and was even their 'eyes and ears.'  She has the power of foresight and helped bring the group together, though it is unreliable.  She's most often prudent and thoughtful, the grounded center of the group.  She and the other children recently ran away to go on adventure of their own.

Damien's lady from the year 3E 405.  She was a member of the Blades, and a noble of Bruma, though a Nord.  She gave birth to Sinidar.  She’s currently with the Blades, who’ve expanded to about a dozen members, and is learning their new ways.  Recently has had extra martial affair with Durak, though Damien wasn't jealous.  She's been trading time with Sinidar with Damien, and their relationship has been a little rocky.

Recently, she and a group went to topple the Dawnguard.

Daedra who works for Sanguine.  Originally (in the story) just showed up and started hanging out with Damien.  Later (in the story) but earlier (in time) Damien introduced Meru to his father.  She's got magic and is hundreds of years old.  And is pretty much what you'd expect for a succubus-like woman - fun, sexual and pretty.

Originally joined Destana after losing her clothes, Sofia is a capable warrior and mage, though a mixed bag in the personality department.  She’s very full of herself and seems an exhibitionist.  She played a part in the Stormcloak rebellion and got married to Inigo a few years ago.  They visited Elsweyr while Destana was in Sovngarde and were captured in a Thalmor prison, recently rescued by Fenrir.  She was identified as the former heir to Bruma, and is choosing to stay there and learn from Sigunn.

Shirley

Age: 89

Born: 4E 126

Source:  Follower Mod

Shirley has a long and storied history, which we’re not completely aware of.  We do know she didn’t fight in the Great War, but provided aid adjacent to it.  She came into the story around the Stormcloak rebellion, being a part of the Stormblade Company.  Since then, she’s helped Runa sharpen her Greatsword skills (at which she is a master) and helped out in the Thalmor War.  She lives in an old cottage on a mountain, away from the public.  She has her own moon-steel greatsword she wouldn’t part with, and a bow made from elderbranch.  Her general demeanor is always helpful, wise, storied, tough, strong, but not as strong and forceful a personality as Jura.

Age: 24

Born: 4E 196

Source:  NPC, Rigmor of Cyrodiil

Originally of Bruma, then a vagrant, then a noble of Bruma, she was exiled to Roscrea for treason (or no crime in particular, really, just existing) by the New Empire.  Now she's traveling with Runa's group to get her place in the world back.  She’s the descendant of a bastard child of Titus Mede I.  She also has a dependent relationship with Destana and Runa (and is kind of in love with Runa).  She’s the Chosen of Azura and any number of other things apparently.  She was made princess of Cyrodiil by Emperor Jura, because of her bloodline.  Recently she was joined to Runa in ceremony.  Now she's the mother of Kintyra Mede-Septim with Runa.

Ulfric Stormcloak

High King of Skyrim

Jarl of Eastmarch

Age:  61

Born:  4E 154

Source:  Vanilla NPC, Modified by High King Ulfric Mod

Destana’s second husband, he’s the Jarl of Eastmarch and High King of Skyrim.  He fought in the great war, was the driving force for the Markarth Incident (though it was Jarl Igmund and his father who performed most the atrocities) and leader of the Stormcloak Rebellion.  He’s more of a ruler than a warrior.  Though he can hold his own with his shouts and swordplay, he’s not a match for Destana and Jura.  He’s got a lot of old friends from the war:  Jura, Yngol, Sialius, Marcus Jannus, Valerius.  Pegged as a bit of a racist, exposure to Destana has smoothed out some of his rough edges.  He’s Fenrir’s father and taught him how to fight and command.

Heir to a long line of High Elf mages, though she is a Breton.  Medora was a powerful mage in her time.  She’s been in love a few times – King Lysandus of High Rock (whom she was court wizard for) Calaxes Septim, then with Envarion, who runs the Warlock’s Luck.  She was also the Mages’ Guildmaster in Bravil for a while.  She was instrumental in helping the Hero of Daggerfall in accomplishing his mission, and is lady of Direnni Tower.  Though she hasn’t been back in years, she’s visited since she came forward in time.  Her daughter, Valiana, doesn’t come to visit very often.  Recently, Envarion died and she's been lonely.  She propositioned Damien and even went so far as to reverse her youth to make herself young again.  Now she lives alone in Direnni Tower.

Born:  4E 172 

Source:  Dragonborn NPC

Destana’s half-brother to a Nordish woman when Jura was still young, the Ebony Warrior's been fighting for a long time and gave up his original name long ago.  He's been going by Rehman Ebonarm, a joke about the rumors Destana told him about.  Originally he approached Destana for a fight to the death so she could send him to Sovngarde, but she found out about his parentage and sparred with him instead and just took him to Sovngarde through the portal in Skuldafn.  The reason Rehman wanted to go to Sovngarde was a long lost Nord woman love, Estrid of Morthal.  When he got there, he found she'd already moved on to the Dreamsleeve.

Random note and I'll probably delete this comment later.  I'm experiencing one of those 'five mods congealing into a unique experience.'

 

I'm currently doing KAGRENFAHLZ (mod), one of the first quests send you to Moss Mother Cavern to get a book.  I hadn't done the vanilla quest for there. 

 

Starts in Riverwood, where I saw the new visuals, new NPCs, found a fairy chest from Relics of Hyrule.  On my way to Moss Mother, I stopped by the Inn of Lost Souls, added by Helgen Reborn I think.   Slept there the night, then traveled through a new town added by the TES arena mod. Mihail's fantasy pack has monster spawn point right outside town so I fought with and saved the towns people (they were spriggans and plant-deer).

 

So the brush is VERY lush because of the new mods, wanted to get a vantage point so I hookshotted up to the lookout tower.  I found the cavern and jumped down.  I found the wounded guy outside, half under the dense brush and helped him out. 

 

When I ventured in the grass is insane inside. Fought bears and spriggans, found a fairy from Relics of Hyrule, and now there's a boss of the cave. An ANCIENT LECHEN!  From the Witcher. Now all the extremely heavy brush makes sense. I'm getting creamed because I can't see anything, I back out of the cave and he follows.   That's where I stopped. Gonna kill him outside and turn down the grass settings for an explanation.

 

Also I haven't found that book.

Have you found the big treasure-chest at the very back of the cave? It's past the little pond on top of a small stone-outcropping. I believe there's a gold-vein nearby too. Perhaps your missing book is in there. There are also some loose items placed around the chest by default. If the mod-author has not put the book in a container my guess would be that it's near the other stuff.

That is quite the file now. Two more years and it will rival the abridged version of the Encyclopedia Galactica (aka "The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy"). ;)

Certainly a most useful reference, especially for people like me, that have trouble connecting names to persons. ^^


Also is it just me or did Fenrir change a lot? Can't remember him sporting a hunnic beard?

Link to comment

He grew a beard. It's been a few months since the Thalmor war. Also, I'll be writing about the acquisition of his armor soon. It's mainly just a dungeon run so I feel like not enough for a full entry.
