I love it when two Foresters decide they can't stand each other, and get in a fight. :)

Lothran is now in Pale Pass. He left in the early morning and headed towards Serpent's Trail. His weapons the same as always; Goldbrand, bow and arrow and of course Snowflake, given to him by Buffy.
While his trusty Spriggan took care of the Cavebosses inside the trail, Snowflake took care of the ogres on the way to the old Akaviri fort. Together with the specially made weakness spell, Snowflake does wonders!

On top of the fort, the tent is now raised. As Lothran stands on the very top of the ruin, overlooking the valley, he can sense a decade's worth of hunting inside of him. He takes one more look at his equipment to make sure it's all in order.


The hunt can begin.

I always enjoyed the quests in that area.

Today Lothran made his first sweep of Pale Pass. Many ogres were found and slayed using all weaponry available. As evening came around, Lothran withdrew back to the fort. Or rather the ice right beneath it. When contemplating the recent events something suddenly caught his eye; movements in the distance! There was at least one ogre left!

Lothran drew his bow and on the second attempt, he hit the beast. As it came down the snowy slopes looking for revenge, Lothran readied Snowflake and made sure the preparing spell was at hand. One step forward and one step back, allowing the ogre to hit and miss. Before it could charge up another blow, Lothran hit it with the spell which among other things paralyzed it, and then Snowflake made short work of it. Another tooth to the collection.

By this time it had grown darker and it was time to go back to the tent on the secured ledge at the very top of the ruin where no ogre could make its way. If indeed any is left. The rest of the evening was nice and pleasant. It was mostly spent counting teeth and looking at the Flawless Rubys found in Serpent's Trail as well as putting a Topaz in the chest with the other standard gems.

It's been one whole year since Lothran was in Pale Pass and we still love coming here. Tomorrow is another day and I think another sweep is in order.

Lothran woke up early in the morning and dismantled his tent. Pretty easy since it's a summoned tent. Then he made his way down the old fort and walked along the path towards Serpent's Trail, only stopping for a brief moment to take in the feel of Pale Pass and its secludedness one last time. It really is a peaceful place. Well, for some it is.. ;)

When emerging from the Trail, Lothran was not ready to go back to Bruma. Truth be told, he did want to stay in Pale Pass for a day or two more. But the Christmas hunt was over and he had to leave, it's just how it is. Also, he has other duties to attend to and he can't be slacking on the job.
So when coming back out to the Jeralls, Lothran went westward up into the mountains and onto a shelf where he could be alone for just awhile longer. There, he counted the ogre teeth of this years hunt. You wanna know how many? Have a guess and take a look in the spoiler tag :mrgreen:

Trim a hat with them, or make a necklace and earrings! Nice haul, Lothran! (I guessed 12.... off by a lot....)

You weren't that far off! Pretty good guess I'd say.


Lothran is now back in Bruma and has enjoyed an afternoon shopping for ingredients and recharging his gear. Then he visited both Jerall View and Olav's Tap and Tack but decided to call it an early night after Ongar couldn't stop nicking food, prompting the guards to come and cut him down :18:

Speaking of which, I think it's time for good ole Lothie to don the guard armor too and perform his duty over new year!

Lothran has now taken to the streets. Wearing his official Bruma guard uniform he's determined to keep the citizens safe during new years. He's currently stationed by the brazier at Hammer and Axe and has already performed no less than two round the city patrols.

Night's been quiet and Lothran is now back in the barracks. A fellow guard came and took his place by the North gate early in the morning which was much appreciated. Lothran took the opportunity to first visit the prisoner and give him some more food, after all it's New Years.

Another patrol is coming right up with the following stationing by Hammer and Axe as usual.

I don't remember a prisoner.... but then, I never ever did ALL the quests....

Late morning today, Lothran finally got off his shift. He's been patrolling Bruma and guarding the North gate since just before New Year's and it's now time for him to get back to his usual routines. He has yet to visit the very western parts of the Jeralls as well as Azura's shrine, but I think first order of business will be to clear out Plundered Mine and Capstone Cave. In that order :3:

Well, it's no surprise that female Khajiit bandits likes Lothran. They rarely attack him and can often be smooth-talked into liking him even more. Two more just recently; one outside Capstone Cave and one at the hidden camp on the way to Azura's shrine.

I don't know why this is, but it's kinda fun :7:
