Lothran has now entered the Marie Elena, marking the start of his journey north. He has previously left a few books in the ship which he's now browsing through. The guidebook to Bruma is his favourite :mrgreen:

Lothran is currently in his room at the Tiber Septim, just having woken up. Previous evening was spent strolling around and talking to people, most noteworthy being Jakben, Earl of Imbel.

Tomorrow will be spent at the Waterfront and the Marie Elena. Final preps before heading out to Aleswell.

Today Lothran paid a visit to Ancotar who, despite over a decade has passed since the little incident, still won't go up and talk to the Dunmer siblings in Aleswell. He's glad they are visible, though. Makes it easy to avoid them... ;)

After waking up in the morning, Lothran grabbed his gear, bade farewell to the Dunmers running Aleswell Inn, and was out the door.


He had done this for quite some years now, the white-haired Dunmer from Morrowind. Little had he known and few were his skills the day fate gave him a chance to redeem himself and let him out of that prison cell. Now, he was quite the competent fighter as well as mage and few were those who posed a challenge to him. He had also amassed quite a healthy savings account and he could quite easily earn more by selling tickets to what many would call a museum. To Lothran though, it was just his home.

After some time up the mountainous path he reached the crossroads from where one could choose to go to either the Imperial City, Chorrol or Bruma. As usual, Lothran took off his huntsman's vest here and instead donned his cuirass, helmet and gauntlets, all made out of fur. Not only did they protect the Dunmer from the cold he was about to face yet again, with their enchantments they also protected him against both magic and steel.

The Jerall Mountains laid ahead. Cold, windy and not a whole lot in terms of things to eat straight from bushes or trees. There were plenty of wolves, bears and ogres though, who all could withstand the harsh environment and who were always on the lookout for their next meal. For some, these are not quite ideal conditions and those people would probably opt for say Anvil with the warm beaches instead. But Lothran had only warm feelings when he once again saw the beautiful mountains and felt the cold wind in his face.


When the door to his house slammed shut and he could smell the air from months gone by, his heart felt peace.


Lothran was home.

One of these days I will play Oblivion again. I've been slowly building a load order, but keep getting the bite to play other games.

After some wandering in the Jeralls not too far from Bruma, Lothran decided to call it a day and go back into town. Apart from buying ingredients from the Mages Guild, he also paid a visit to Hafid at the Jerall View before spending the rest of the evening at Olav's Tap and Tack, the first evening of many :3:

And when the evening is done, does he stagger home after many brews?

Lothran doesn't drink much, but he likes listening to those who does :mrgreen:


Today he cleared out Plundered Mine which isn't far from Bruma. As always he helped himself to whatever stuff he could find which only consisted of gold coins and lockpicks. Two things he certainly doesn't need more of :18:

Yeah, I cleared Plundered in each Bruma playthrough in Skyrim - SO much nostalgia!
