WhiteGhost Preps for Sovngarde


Recommended Posts

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Walkthrough – Act 3 – Sovngarde - Video Games,  Wikis, Cheats, Walkthroughs, Reviews, News & Videos

 

I can't believe after playing hundreds of hours of Skyrim I have never done a Skyrim themed challenge.  Time to rectify this oversight.

 

As the Dragonborn gets ready to complete the main questline, it is necessary to pass by Tsun, the Nordic God of Trials Against Adversity who tests all who wish to enter the Hall of Valor.  Before that trial of combat, Tsun asks by what right the applicant seeks entrance.  If you have done all of the other questlines you can choose a number of rights: 

Right of Birth: I am Dragonborn

Right of Glory: Leader of the companions of Jorrvaskr as Harbinger

Right of Cleverness: Head of the College of Winterhold as Archmage

Right of Blood: Leader of the Dark Brotherhood, the Tamriel Assassins Guild as Listener of the Night Mother 

Right of Plunder: Thieves Guild Guild Leader and Nightingale of Nocturnal

 

For this challenge I am going to work on each of these questlines so that I can claim the right to challenge Tsun when I reach Sovngarde to enter the Hall of Valor

 

Right of Birth:

The Force VS The Thu'um | Star Wars Amino

This is the main quest so this is going to be about the most important aspect of fitness - food.  I have learned to make a bunch of different foods but still end up making the same few things over and over.  Goal for this challenge is to make at least 20 different dishes over the course of the challenge.

 

Right of Glory:

Jorrvaskr, the mead hall of the Companions - 9GAG

This is the Skyrim equivalent of the warriors guild so this will be the strength component of my workouts.  While I don't do much in terms of weighted work, I do a lot of bodyweight strength work which, through the right use of leverage, can be just as good for building strength and packing on the muscle.  I am aiming for at least 3 strength workouts per week, split between push, pull and leg.  I will try and get more in, but 3 is the minimum

 

Right of Cleverness:

My Skyrim screenshots collection - Album on Imgur

This is the Skyrim equivalent of the Wizard's guild and will be for intellectual pursuits.  For this challenge that means reading at least one book and learning at least one new ukulele skill as part of a new song (could be a new chord progression, a new strumming pattern or a new picking pattern).   

 

Right of Blood:

EU] The Dark Brotherhood

This is the assassin questline but since I already have my calisthenics through the Companions questline, this is going to be flexibility/mobility work.  I have not put much work into flexibility in the past because I didn't believe I would get anything out of it.  I am going to experiment in 2021 and see if sticking to it long term can lead to actual progress in flexibility.  I have paid for a couple of flexibility programs (GMB and MyFlex) and I plan to put those to use.  Goal is at least 3 sessions/week

 

Right of Plunder:

The Ragged Flagon | Elder Scrolls | Fandom

This is the thieves guild questline, which mostly involves running around to all of the towns in Skyrim and doing sneaky jobs there.  Travel is one of the biggest parts of this so this is going to be my running component.  I have decided that I need to supplement my strength workouts with some cardio to get my blood pumping and heart rate up.  I plan to run on the treadmill for about 30 minutes and/or 5k after each strength workout 

 

Alright, let's go!

I love the set up! Confession - I have never played Skyrim, merely been intrigued by it. Sadly, I don't think I could get the games on my outdated XBox. 

 

Anyway, here to watch you crush it as always!

One day I'll go back to playing Skyrim. I spent about a million hours wandering the wilderness and neglecting the main quest lines, so I actually have no idea what the story of the game is supposed to be!

Skyrim: 10 Most Hilarious "You're Finally Awake" Memes | TheGamer

 

---------------------

 

Let's see, what happened yesterday

 

I normally start Saturday's off with our family D&D game, but the only one who could make it was my brother so we pushed back a week.  Instead I decided to do another workout, this time focusing on lever work (front & back) but I got burned out quick so didn't get much in.  After the workout I got on the treadmill and did 5k of intervals.  Surprisingly I was able to get it done in 31 minutes, which means I haven't really lost much from where I left of running in the middle of last year :)  

 

After my workout I tried to get caught up on NF and then played some more Skyrim.  After dinner I helped clean up a bit around the house and then at 11pm it was time for our NF Global D&D game, which was a blast as always


 

Spoiler

 

We started out interrogating a kobold prisoner trying to figure out why the leader of his tribe was trying so hard to kill our guide, when we thought they were supposed to be business partners.  The DM ( @jonfirestar ) gave me advantage on my rolls because I was doing a convincing job of interrogator, but perhaps that was some unfair metagaming because I used to be a professional interrogator in a previous life.  My character probably wouldn't have know as much about interrogation.  At any rate, we got all the information we wanted out of the kobold and then proceeded to head further into the underdark to to whatever our quest is at this point.  We had originally come here to pick up a delivery but it seems unlikely that itis going to happen at this point.  The wizard ( @Mr_Willes ) has become super suspicious about our employer and our rogue ( @Red1263 ) even went through all of the guides stuff while he was sleeping just to see if we could find anything suspicious.  I told the group that I would totally be willing to sell out the guy if it served out purpose, but so far the wizard is the only member of the party who understands my the secret code* that I use to communicate these things. 

 

* My character has a strong aversion to telling the truth, so he just straight up says the opposite.  For the guide I said "I would NEVER sell out our guide" meaning I totally would but when I first started using this code, the sorcerer ( @Jarric ) rolled a natural one when insight checking me and now he thinks I mean these things, which leads to lots of funny scenarios.  The rogue also rolled low on insight so he also believes me.  During the night on my watch I heard a slithering sound out in the darkness so when the rogue got up to relieve me, I told him "The was definitely NOT anything out there slithering in the dark" and he was like, "huh, ok, whatever" and then didn't hear any slithering during his watch so he thinks I just spurt out with random nonsense all the time :D 

 

  At some point we came across a subterranean lake that we needed to cross but it was being guarded by some kind of half fish half man, reverse mermaid thing.  The wizard tried to charm it and failed miserably, but the rogue was able to use actual charm to make friends with it and gave him a useless signet ring telling him it was a recognized symbol of peace.  My lying cleric couldn't have been prouder.  The fish man let us pass in peace and so the 3 magic users misty stepped across the water and the rogue had to just swim for it.  He tried to jump across but failed his acrobatics check and ended up just falling in.

 

Once across the water, our sorcerer misty stepped up onto the top of a large rock to get a better view and ended up getting attacked by a giant moss monster.  In the ensuing battle both the sorcerer and the rogue went down, and the kobold prisoner tried to escape, but we managed to get through it without losing anyone (thanks in large part to the wizard casting sleep on the fleeing prisoner)

 

By this time it was time to wrap things up so we will continue from that point next time
