Extensive play today took me up to over 51 hours gametime. That’s like, forever. Or something. I’m certainly not going to explain everything I’ve done today, but here’s a bit of a synopsis:
I summoned my skeleton, then killed it, over and over to get souls, with which I enchanted a few more things, making a full 22% shield at all times. Then set off to get a staff from some glade, only to be attacked. Got the staff, made it a Staff of Shock, and then set about finishing a few open quests. Ousted the Watch commander Ulrich from Cheydenhal, and completed the Cheydenhal Fighter’s Guild task. That gained me another 10 Gamerpoints, and an Achievement – I’m now an Apprentice in the Fighter’s Guild!
Then went round a few bookshops reading books. Boosted my skills with a few, and opened a couple more quests with information from them. Went to Bravil and spoke to the Thieves’ Guild contact there, who told me I needed to nick more stuff and have it fenced. Chose Leyawiin to go to for that task, and killed the Skooma dealers to finish that quest along the way. Read more books in the Leyawiin book shop, and nicked a load to sell. Fenced the money from them with the contact in the inn in Leyawiin, and now I’m ready to go back to Bravil for my next feevin’ task.
