I thought I’d reached Kvatch for a minute, until I realised I’d actually reached Skingrad. Tch.
Spent a while exploring it, and meeting a resident who was keep for me to “meet with him” behind the chapel. One of the guards immediately warned me off him.
Found both Mage’s and Fighter’s guilds, and set about taking stuff of any value ready to sell at a shop, as soon as I find one. I also took a room and a bed in an inn, where I decided to sleep for the first time in the game. Imagine my surprise when this prompted me to level up! I’m now Level 2! I had the chance of upgrading some stats, so chose strength as one of them, so I can carry a bit more stuff.
