Character Sheet Update: Leveled to 33. Saving my perk point for when I get smithing to 60, so I can enchant improved armor.
Last Night: Success! I got the Black Star!
Then, went sunken-tower spelunking for necromancers. Got the Black Star. Took it to Necaris, or whatever his name is, so he could turn it into a black soul gem, rather than the daedra Azura, who would have made it a regular soul gem.
But I had to enter the star and evict the idiot who was squatting, Malen Something-or-Other.
This guy summons 3 dremora!
I’m like, “lol, sike.” Pull out my Banish dagger and *pop, pop, pop* send those mfers back to Oblivion. Then I give Malen the old one-two combo: Ebony War Axe of Frost in the left, Glass Mace of Scorching in the right. Peace, homie.
Neckbeard, or whatever, pulls me out of the star, and tells me that it’s good as new, but by opening it up to fix it, we’ve voided any warranty it may have had.
And, just for kicks, as I’m leaving, I steal the Staff of Arcane Authority from him. Which is convenient, because in my way out, I run into the steward of Winterhold, who asks me if I would be willing to steal the Staff of Arcane Authority from ol’ Nestlecrunch in there. I’m literally holding it in my hand, all, “oh, you mean this gate key.”
“Yep” he says. Then “thanks! I’m going to make you talk better.” Gain a level of Speech.
Next Time: Tomorrow it’ll be all smithing all the time, except for the part when I go harvest some souls to fill my new toy.
