Me Being a Loser, Part Eight  

Time to brood.

You know, splitting your soul or becoming a vampire is sort of a heavy choice. I think he would honestly think about it. There's no other way and when he suggests she go in there herself and find her mother, she refuses. She does go in to check it out a bit but she comes back, shivering. She wants him with her and he has no choice. He takes more time before he finally comes up with his answer.

Soul Trap him.

She tells him she will but he MUST be certain. He agrees to it and she tells him she would never do anything to hurt him which he finds weird to say. But he lets it go. He's partially soul-trapped. They can go on.




Yeah, he wishes she killed him this is fucking bullshit. He asks her if she's SURE her mother has the damn scroll. She reassures him. So, they go to find her mother.


Funny, they get lost and Siddgeir hears of this horse. Only he expected a horse, not whatever the fuck that blue thing running around is. But they eventually stumble upon its skull and when he defeats the damn mistmen and the Soul who owned Arvak calls him a hero he's strangely... moved by it.



They find Valerica and when she snaps at Siddgeir he snaps right back because fuck you. When she tells of Serana dying for the prophecy he scoffs at it. Like he'd ever let her get killed. Valerica ridicules him and he does it right back because you know what? Fuck you. He's been fighting this shit when he should be in his Hold but now he's actually getting pissed. You know what? He's going to fucking kill Harkon whether or not she'll help him. Even if it takes his lifetime.


Serana sort of speaks up because really, she's been ignored over this for too long and Valerica still is negative of the whole thing. She 'helps' but sarcastically and Siddgeir doesn't care. They're seeing this through.


Serana's quite impressed as they go to find the Keepers and he tells her no one tells him what his intentions are. Then he sort of apologizes for yelling at her mother. She smiles.

Time to take down some Keepers. (Well, really, just one.)



First, grab back soul.



Then, after killing the Keeper(s), it's time to end this horrible time in the Soul Cairn.

OMG this is straight out of Battlespire! Soul Cairn!


It was a fuckload harder in Battlespire, and I based her history off that lore mixed with my headcanon. Mistmen were UNKILLABLE. Best you could do was run out of their LoS, or talk to them, and they might go away for a bit. the wraiths were the same deal Huge pain in the ass, until she got the Book of Rest and Endings.

Then there were the Bonemen--not hard, but annoying, still, and Morphoid Daedra, who look like traditional red devils and for some reason sound like Jack Nicholson. I kept expecting them to yell out "HEEEEEERE'S JOHNNY!" when attacking, or "All work and no play make Jack a dull boy". They were semi-annoying, and they liked to talk about 'pounding'. Nyx had quie enough hearing about that, what with all the lew remarks from spider daedra back in the previous area. Only these guys meant 'pound her to mush'.

So Siddgeir has it easy :D

Ahaha forgive my ignorance but what is Battlespire?

And he really did have it easy. Serana is pretty well perfect as a companion for him since he either goes up close or hides. She gets right in there.

No worries. Bethesda experimented with different formats for TES games. One was a rail shooter with rpg elements of sorts called Battlespire,


Spider Daedra--males--and Dremora make their first appearance there. And here's a hilariously snarky Let's Play someone did:


It's an old old game, Almost 20 years old now, and buggier than Skyrim, Morrowind, and Oblivion put together, so it's hell to make it run on modern systems, if you can even find it.

Ah, right. I've read a bit about this (only where it was set), I had no idea the Soul Cairn was in it. Yeah, I would suck at that game just by looking at it.

I sucked at it! I had to play in Godmode, and only then I was playing to experience the storyline and ogle Dremora.

Ahaha... like me and Morrowind... eyyyy.

I give you credit for even trying. Lots of Skyrim players won't even touch it!

They really should. Morrowind is ridiculous in how inviting it is. Everyone has 6000 lines of dialogue but it's all so interesting. Going to it from Skyrim actually made me super emotional because Solstheim became so much more important.

Yes, you understand the lore behind it, not in a rigid dogmatic way, but in an 'it all makes so much more sense' way.

Like another game series I really love: Wizardry. wizardry 8 makes more sense, especially in regards to the villain and some of the actions, if you also play 6 and 7. when I found out who the Dark savant (the villain) really was, my jaw dropped and I literally yelled out. It was so exciting! I wouldn't have had that if I didn't have the background of the previous two games.

Don't think I'll ever play Wiz 1-5, though. They're notoriously hard. One is so damn hard that most people didn't even figure out how to get out of the first room, and gave up.

Yeah, I have to admit, doing Morrowind EVERYTHING made sense after. I felt like I had been living with only doing the bare minimum of the games with Skyrim. I mean, I still have no inclination to do Oblivion but Morrowind is a treasure to the PC gaming world.

Oh wow, I've never heard of that game. And of course. I would be one of the people unable to get out of the first room. But I'm glad the series made your jaw drop :D
