I finally got to Leafrot Cave early in the morning in order to complete my contract. The necromancer, as I said before, was attempting to turn himself into a lich. He had had relatively no success until recently. In his journal he wrote about how “Sovereign” had came to him and had given him the means to transform himself. To do so, he had to transfuse his soul to an object first, which he was in the process of doing right now. This time that this process takes to complete varies for each person, so I assumed he was still in this transitioning phase. He also wrote how if anyone was to steal his object, an hourglass, he would perish. So I did just that. I stealthily pick-pocketed the hourglass and he fell dead. I was to then receive my reward, and my next contract, at my next Dead Drop in Chorrol.
The Dead Drop was in a sack near the Great Oak, and was very well hidden. My next contract was to assassinate an entire bloodline; the Draconis family. Unfortunately, I only knew the location of the mother, Perennia. She lived in a little farmstead close to Bruma, and even though it was late I had time to make it there and start the contract.
Through some persuasion, I was able to figure out where all of her children were now in their adulthood, and I then killed her while she was sound asleep. Business like usual. I stayed the night in Bruma and plotted my course of action for the next day.
