Short, But Not So Sweet

August 28, 2012

So, about a week ago, I was walking along near Windhelm, where I somehow lost my follower Illia along the way. Thinking nothing of it, I continue on, knowing she’ll probably catch up eventually.

I spotted Aela in the distance, fighting a mammoth. Deciding to help her out like a good shield-sister does, we slay the beast together.

Then this happened.




After they go fight a bunch of horkers, I reload a slightly earlier save in fear that this massive glitch might have fucked things up somewhere else. Apparently, it didn’t.

About a hour and a half later with Illia, slaying dragons and shit, I relax in the Windhelm bar. Which by the way…I’m not exactly sure if this only happens in my game or not, but the barmaid…sings an interesting interpretation of “Age of Oppression”…


“We drink to our youth, and to days come and gone. For the age of oppression is now nearly done.
“We’ll drive out the Empire from this land that we own. With our blood and our steel we will take back our home.
“Down with Ulfric the killer of kings. On the day of your death we’ll drink and we’ll sing.”


“We’re the children of Skyrim, and we fight all our lives. And when Sovngarde beckons, every one of us dies!”

Err, okay. And apparently it wasn’t a fluke because she did it again. I kind of like it though, it’s like a defiant Dunmer thing against the Stormcloak racists, it’s her own way of saying “fuck you” to them in her own sneaky way. Chick’s got some balls, yo.

Anyway, I later punched a racist in the face (I wanted to blow off some steam), and then got arrested. Big deal, traveled out again upon my newly owned horse (yes…I bought another one).

After a big raid in a mining cave, I turn to Illia to give her my loot. I opened her inventory…

Then nothing.



So I rage quit’d and reloaded the save.

No change. Same damn thing.


…And I haven’t played since.

  1. Skjor did that to me. Except he was standing upright, paralysed, naked (I stole his armour wahaahahahahaha tahrodiis) and stuck waist deep in the ground. I smacked him with my axe. He had a seizure and did the Lightning Bolt. Then he called me whelp (I’m Harbinger and have been for a long while) and left for Jorrvaskr, stuck in the ground and stealing Usain Bolt’s move. Funny thing is, he was going the same way Aela had a while earlier… We all know there’s something going on between them >:D
