Chapter 1: Return
Entry 4.

My return back west towards Helgen was even less eventful then my journey east, and for this I was thankful. While I still had all my knowledge from my previous life, this body did not and so riding was taking its toll. If I had been forced to fight in such a state I have my doubts that I would have emerged unharmed.

When I reached Helgen once more, I took the path that the Nord and I had used after escaping the from the tunnels below. Eventually it led me to a small town built around a saw mill. As I was passing through I heard a voice calling out to me and turned to find it was the Nord from before.

Realising that we had never properly introduced ourselves we exchanged names. It turns out the Nord; who I now know as Hadvar, was staying with his uncle the town smith. The remainder of my day was spent by the fire in his uncle’s house discussing what we had been doing since we went our separate ways.

The following day I was granted permission to use his uncle’s tools however I wanted, so long as I did not break anything. Taking the opportunity, I spent the day repairing and improving my armour and axe.

After two days spent with Hadvar and his relatives, I decided it was best to move on as Jorrvaskr was still calling to me. So, I once again bid my farewells and moved on.

Gaining entrance to the city was more difficult than I had expected, as I had to convince the guards to let me in with a promise of information about what had happened at Helgen. The trouble was worth it however for my home of so many years was now so close.

As I approached the main door of the upturned ship, years of memories flooded through my mind and as I stepped through into the mead hall only one thought filled my mind.

I was home.

    Golden Fool I figured that was the case, since you mentioned the guy outside Forelhost wearing stormcloak gear in the build. I only went with Hadvar because I wanted to get a battleaxe as soon as I could.

    The Long-Chapper I stormcloak died in the torture chamber, grabbed his gear. :D, but yes, sometimes one-handed went up in the beginning. Oh and with EFC, I sometimes trained sword and shield to work on block with Ria. I love, by the way, how you make him look so insignifi...  more
