Happy holidays from Keebler Sparrowgrass! Just wanted to pop by and announce that we will be back sharing my travels January 1st! I’m looking forward to continuing my journey in Tamriel. May you all eat, drink, and be merry until then!
I downed my mug of ale and went to go have a chat with the innkeeper, Vintenwen. I walked up to her counter as she glared at me the whole time. “What do you need?” She said gritting her teeth. “Oh nothing. Figured I’d come have a chat to get to know you more since it looks like I’ll be sticking around here for quite some time.” I said to Vintenwen.
I took my armor off and decided I’d take it with me to the armorer to see if he could get it cleaned and repaired. I slipped my robe on, grabbed my towel and made my way to the washroom. Soaking in a tub felt amazing, I didn’t realize how dirty I had become, scrubbing and turning the water darker. Deciding I was clean enough I made my way back to my room.
I took the key from the innkeeper and she turned and went back downstairs, leaving me in front of my door alone. I was tired, exhausted, and curious to see what my new home away from home looked like. I was looking forward to freshening up so I placed the key in the lock, turned it, and opened up the door to my room.
I made my way back through the city towards the Golden Gryphon Garret. I kept to the only route I knew, I figured I could explore this place later. For now I just wanted a bath and to to kick back and relax for a bit. Maybe even grab a fresh mug of ale. I finally made it back to the inn and made my way inside.
I pushed open the grand doors to the Royal Palace and walked into one of the largest spaces I’ve ever been in. It was almost as big as the space inside the Great Tree of Elden Root in Grahtwood. The space itself was dimly lit, and as I walked towards the platform at the end of the room where a beautiful woman stood, the Proxy Queen.
I made my way up through the city to the Royal Palace. Squire Bayenor walked quickly through the city and I did my best to keep up with him. He wouldn’t say much to me either as he took me through the streets and up the ramps and around the corners. We walked past shops and residences, a crafting and artisan area, past courtyards and parks. This city was incredible and I tried to take it all in as we rushed along.
