Played for quite some time today. Spent a while wandering round, and went to Bruma and bought some new spells. Also bought some new armour, and then enchanted it. I have 85% shield at all times now, as well as a 20HP health bonus! Aces.
That was enough time to get Traven talking again, and he asked me to go to Bruma to check up on the guild there as he’d not heard from them in a few days. I got there, and lo and behold, they were all dead. Well, not quite all. Mannimarco had attacked and killed almost all of the mages. Tch. Went back to Traven, and he told me to come back in a few days. Did, however, manage to gain another rank (and so got another achievement).
To kill some time, I went back to my house in Bravil and stashed a load of stuff, and then decided to finally do the Forlorn Watchman quest from aaaaaages ago. Warped to Leyawiin and walked up the Yellow Road towards the Mouth of the Panther. Finally got there, and found a boat full of faded wraiths to kill. Also “released” the ghost, who thanked me and gave me a map. The map lead to a chest underwater nearby, with loads of jewels and gold in. Acecellent.
Continued walking north, and solved another quest – once involving two warring armies of goblins, and then found the last of the wayshrines. Went back to the Imperial City then, and followed up the Bent Copper quest. Phew!
