    Those Vinedusks and their pseudo-ranging, I guess. Helping them against the Blacksap was a fun quest but I remember there was some nagging doubts as to their methods in my mind when I played :D

    Oh, I see where you're coming from. I do rather like the idea of the Vinedusk; I just wish they'd been implemented better.

    Oh, I do too. They got me thinking. A group in service to the royal jester himself (:p) who are exempt from the Greenpeace Pact and have a degree of freedom to act that is rather frightening was a huge surprise to me. From that quest on I was always looking at the Rangers a little cautiously. I mean, as you say the Blacksaps had every right to be pissed. Endare was a gigantic bitch.

    The next area objective we're tackling is a small village named Karthdar, which is a prime example of how religious fanaticism can ruin lives. What joy!

     

    I said hey! What's going ooonnn?

     

    Basically, the forest has turned against the village, despite the fact that it's a very devout community of Green Pact Bosmer. The Treethane confirms that the Pact was broken, however; a sacred flower had been cut!

     

    Maybe it was the Mario Brothers...?

     

    The Treethane has narrowed down the suspects to three dudes: the Spinner, his wife, and the visiting merchant. He tells you to gather testimonies, physical and spiritual evidence against one. However, it quickly becomes evident that all three had a role to play: the Spinner's wife had fallen ill, and needed the flower to survive. Seeing how her husband despaired, she paid the merchant, a Khajiit, to cut the flower and leave it for the Spinner to use in a healing remedy for the wife. For the purposes of the quest, you can choose anyone, so I went with the wife, mostly because she's kind of a bitch.

     

    OBJECTION!

     

    When you've chosen the victim, you must deliver him/her to, for all intents, be brutally sacrificed so the hippie gods can be appeased. This happens by having the sacrifice's blood drained out of them, which is actually pretty brutal if you think about it.

     

     

    I then went on to the next, and final, objective for repairing the Orrery; the Fallinesti Winter Site. I'll be writing about that soon-ish, so stay tuned!

     

    That's all for this post! Thanks for reading.

    I remember this! What an incredible little quest. It's so tusked up as to be subversive. The penalty for cutting that plant is death? These Bosmer might seem all jovial, but they are deceptively fanatic and bloodthirsty. Or enough of them are that I can justify that sweeping statement. It only makes them more interesting.

    I know! Nothing is ever as it seems in Elder Scrolls, which is awesome. Amazing that such a fun-loving people can be so wrathful!
