Heart string tugging quests in Skyrim

Skyrim is still going strong. Through a mixture of questing and levelling skills such as smithing and enchanting I’ve hit level 27.

I’ve come across a few really memorable quests, like the one where you reunite a pair of centuries-old ghost lovers separated by war.

Neither party actually realise they are ghosts and you have to go between the two of them to work out their story: the wife Ruki is out searching for her husband as she heard there was a hard fought battle where his military unit was meant to be. The husband, Fenrig,  however believes the battle will be tomorrow and he hasn’t actually got to it yet. You eventually lead the husband to the wife where they are reunited and finally together again they pass on together.  It was a seriously lovely quest and completely unexpected to stumble across.

I managed to find myself another follower, Illia who is a destruction mage like my toon but she uses primarily frost spells and now that I’ve equipped her with a few different staffs she swaps between them so her spells are a mixture of frost, conjuring animals to fight alongside us and lightning and sparks.

Being two ranged is really fun though she has the same voice acting as Lydia so still the “oh” wherever we go.

I came across a wild horse at one of the military camps and found I could ride it. Now whenever I fast travel somewhere the horse turns up and I can mount it but if I don’t get on straight away it will just wander away to who knows where. I followed it for a while just to see where it goes and it seems to meander wherever it likes. It always turns back up when I travel though which has been nice so far.

The game just keeps rolling out absolutely beautiful scenes so my screenshot folder is quickly filling up.

So currently 100 hours in and I’m starting to get an idea of what I want to do in the game, I’ll post about that next time.
