As I spend an evening wandering through the forests in Skyrim, I am beset upon by a bear who is readily dispatched and looted.
My goal tonight is to get up to Winterhold. So I head north in that general direction.
Ooo look. Flowers to pick. Over there, that tree trunk I see some nightshade! I think I remember only having 138 of them in my alchemist satchel in Whiterun. Can’t have too many. Pluck. Pluck. Pluck.
Why am I dying? Look more flowers. Oh. Too late, I’m dead.
Oh, another bear killed me.
Where were those nightshade again? Where is that bear?
Pluck. Pluck. Pluck. Where’s that damn bear. Ooo look, a beehive. Dammit. He killed me again.
3 nightshade plucked. (saves game – that’ll teach that bear!). Where is that bear? Here it is. Not anymore!
Ah, the beehive. With a bee in it? Sweet! Now to catch all the bees. Finally. Moving on.
Ooo nice. A cave. Tolvald’s cave. Sounds fun! Falmers? They look awesome. I love these guys. *dead*
You know, for blind guys, these guys sure hide well. Glow mushrooms? Pluck. Pluck. Pluck.
Eggs everywhere? Awesome! Pluck. Pluck. Pluck.
Killing these guys is pretty fun. But. Geesh lots of eggs and mushrooms down here. Chests look weird too. I’m glad I got that level 70 lockpicking perk, though. The loot in these chests is pretty good. Wonder if it’s the perk or if it’s just random chance?
This place looks awesome; too bad I’m spending all my time looking at the floor for mushrooms and eggs, while on the look out for mushrooms on the wall. Bet this place looks sweet if I spent time not looking for mushrooms.
Ooo, look. Some dead humans here. With a skill book. Looks like they were doing some experiments on falmurs? But the book says they were just trying to escape. Weird. Oh well. Ooo, a mushroom by that corpse!
This place is pretty long; wasn’t really into an hour dungeon at 1 am in the morning. Ooo, look more mushrooms and eggs!
Finally, looks like the last fight, cuz this mage asshole keeps using his barrier to deflect all my shots. All that for an elven dagger? Oh, and 139 glowing mushrooms, a skillbook, a spell, and 103 eggs from those worm things.
Finally, outside the cave again. What did I want to do again this evening? Oh, it’s 3 am.
