I cleared out Stillborn Cave and I liked how the exit of the cave dropped me off at a different access point. It was unexpected and added to the sense of distance I covered in the cavern.
M’aiq the Liar was hanging outside the cave; dude gets around.
I needed to into that forsaken cave to retrieve Urag gro-Shub’s copy of N’Gasta! Kvata! Kvakis!, and I did just that. I’m hoping with that task done he’ll forgive all my late fees.
“Disrupt my Arcanaeum, and I will have you torn apart by angry Atronachs. Now, do you require assistance?”
Even as the new Arch-Mage I don’t think he’d let me cancel my own fines; he’s a real stickler that guy.

In a way it’s very much like college – I had trouble finding my way around and got lost several times trying to find my room (first floor in the Hall of Attainment).
Headed back to the Frozen Hearth and saw Continue reading →

Rather then stick close to Whiterun as I did in my previous travels I decided to head to the northernmost city in Skyrim – Winterhold, home of the famed College of Winterhold.
Most NPCs have encouraged me not to get mixed up in the world of magic, but I believe furthering my education in the arcane arts will benefit (dare I say, save … ?) the world in the long run.
This is a path I’ve never traveled before so it was exciting heading further and further into new territory – I met Continue reading →
