Character Sheet Update: Reached level 31. Spent the Perk on getting Alchemy to 60% improvement. Got Smithing to level 49, so next perk will be in scale armor.
Last Night: Took the Pale for the Empire, by tracking down a Stormcloak courier, murdering him, changing his documents to mislead the Stormcloak generals, and delivering the papers to Dawnstar. Ticked off two side quests for the Thieves Guild.
Also, I had my suspicions that Mercer Frey, head of the Thieves Guild, is a real garbage person confirmed when he tried to murder me immediately after I killed roughly 50 Draugr while leading him to Karliah, supposedly to seek revenge. (Spoiler: Karliah is good. Mercer is a dick.)
The good news is that I found a full set of glass armor AND an ebony axe while leading the traitor through the dungeon. The bad news is that my game glitched out preventing me from enchanting either of them.
I’m at a point where I’ve started to hit a bit of a liquidity problem. All my money is tied up in useless (but incredibly valuable) potions and enchanted gold rings, but I’m having trouble offloading them, and they’re starting to weigh me down. Each merchant only carries a relatively small amount of gold, so even after buying everything I could possibly use, I still only trade out a couple potions or rings. Hmph.
Next Time: Assuming I can get my glitch sorted (I’ve got some recent saves, and a few solution ideas), some housecleaning is in order.
