Valsirenn and I made our way back to the portal to make our return to Summerset. Again as I touched it I was enveloped by this bright glow, too bright to keep my eyes open to, and then I found myself suddenly standing in Summerset again.
We started to make our way back to Shimmerene. We decided to stop off for some supplies, and also so I could pick up my new armor. It had to be done by now! I was giddy with excitement as we strolled into Shimmerene. Valsirenn said she didn’t have much to do in Shimmerene, so she decided to make her way towards Rellenthil immediately. I decided to stay for the day and make my towards Rellenthil later that day and promised I’d catch up to her.
After parting ways, I made my way over to the armorer. When I arrived I was informed that my new armor was ready to go. So I ran to the fitting room to put the new pieces on. It was absolutely stunning! This set was perfect for me. The armorer informed me that Raz had left me a package as well and pulled a parcel out from a back room.
I opened it up to find a note from Raz informing me he’d catch up with me soon and that he hoped this gift would complement my new armor. It was a new bow and quill holder! I slung it over my shoulder and the armorer offered to buy my old bow off me for a few gold of which I agreed.
I went outside and decided to strut around Shimmerene for a bit, getting used to how the new armor felt on me. The body was made out of this beautiful bright blue leather that hugged every curve of my body. Included were a simple pair of matching leather leggings. To offer more protection there was metal plating I could strap on for my shoulders, chest, legs, and arms. What I liked most was the extra plate to protect my bow arm and the extra leather on my arrow arm so I could still be protected yet flexible to notch back arrows. Also included was a belt with many little pouches that was perfect for keeping some poisons in for easy access in a fight.
After strutting around, I resolved my tab at the inn and found a book on Daedric Princes at a local shop. I made the decision that there was no real point in lingering in Shimmerene any longer. I had enough gold left to rent another mount so I made my way to the stables. As I was approaching the stables, a handbill attached to a light post caught my attention.
It was posted by the Divine Prosecution and it was asking for adventurers to perform some various contract work throughout Summerset. It said if interested I should have a chat with Justicar Carawen in Alinor to get deputized. I thought it’d probably be a good idea as I could use the funds after spending almost everything I had on this armor. Plus being deputized could help me out with the ongoing efforts with Razum-dar.
I decided to look into this further once I was done in Rellenthil. I made my way over the stables and spoke once again to the stablemaster there. I let him know that I needed a mount I could take with me as I wouldn’t be coming back to Shimmerene. I told him my plans of going to Rellenthil and then making my way to Alinor. I was surprised to see that he thought Shadow would again be the right fit for this journey. I welcomed reuniting with this magnificent steed. And with that I said farewell to Shimmerene and went on my way.
