Adventures in Morrowind: Journal Entry #7

31 Last Seed, 3E330

I decided to join House Hlaalu. Nileno Dorvayn welcomed me graciously and gave me the rank of “Retainer.” We discussed business and Nileno said that I sound just like a Redoran, Felsen Sethandus, who had just died recently. I was to put on a Redoran helmet, head to Ald’Ruhn, and get orders from Neminda of the Redoran council. “Orphan of Arnesia” was the password to use.

Ald’Ruhn is a horrible place. Constant sandstorms. Neminda bought my disguise and gave me a scroll to bring to Maar Gan. I brought it to Nileno instead. I receieved 500 drakes and a promotion to “Oathman.”

I was tasked with acquiring some alchemical formulas from Aurane Frenris’ shop in the Foreign Quarter of Vivec. I was also told that a Hlaalu councillor, Edryno Arethi, might have some business for me too.

I arrived in Vivec at 10 p.m., the perfect time to steal the formulas. The scroll was a synch to steal. She turned her back and I pocketed it and left.

I arrived in Balmora by 8 a.m., and was promoted to “Lawman.” I went home and slept.

Ah, something else to get excited about! I didn't go with House Hlaalu in my Morrowind playthrough. Because I built more or less an out-and-out warrior character, I ended up siding with the fighting-oriented house (House Redoran, I think it was). So this is yet another brand new quest line for me to read about and discover through your journals!

Sorry for not commenting on the last journal, by the way. I think it was just a combination of your brevity and my being busy that prevented it. I'm still really enjoying this series, and I can't wait to read more of your adventures in Vvardenfell.

Man, seeing an Elder Scrolls quest condensed to a few paragraphs really highlights the high-fantasy aspect: hella apostrophes and vowels.

In my first playthrough I did Redoran as well. I've done a bunch of Hlaalu before but never finished so I'm interested in seeing what happens too.

I've got 3 more entries written right now and it might be a few weeks before I can write again. Exams are starting in a few days :(

It's funny. I think I sided with Hlaalu, but I can't remember a darn thing about their quests, so it's neat seeing their quests written out so bluntly and with little fun details. These blogs are like crack.
