J’Zhirr refuses to pay Alfarinn and Serana has no money, so we are going to the College of Winterhold. Hopefully they will not ask much gold for the information.
As we pass by Fort Kastav, an Arch Conjurer runs out and attacks us. He is soon joined by a necromancer. These crazy people, we are just passing through and not going near the fort at all. However, it’s their mistake for Serana makes short work of them.
J’Zhirr asks Alfarinn if he has seen a Moth Priest.
Alfarinn asks, “That’s one of them Imperial scholars, right? Old man with a gray robe?”
That sounds about right. J’Zhirr asks if Alfarinn has seen him.
Alfarinn says, “Might be that I have, but I can’t say for sure. I got enough troubles on my mind just tryin’ to scrape by out here.”
J’Zhirr tries to persuade Alfarinn but he stands firm. “Can’t help you, friend. I might remember better if my pockets weren’t so light.” He wants almost 400 gold for the information.
That money-grabbing horse driver. J’Zhirr is not sure whether the information is worth it.
J’Zhirr is just walking down the road, minding his own business when a crazy elf jumps out and attacks. He casts lightning bolts and conjures up wild beasts to fight at his side. Luckily Serana is around for her draining powers make short work of the elf. Travelling with a powerful vampire has its perks.
Serana suggests going to the College of Winterhold. She says, “Well, back before I… you know. The College of Winterhold was the first place I’d think to go for any kind of magic or historical thing. The wizards know about all kinds of things that people probably shouldn’t know about.”
So that’s where we are heading. It is day and Serana puts up her hood to shield herself from the sun. She complains that it is too bright and she does not know how J’Zhirr can stand it.
But J’Zhirr likes the brightness. It reminds J’Zhirr of Elsweyr, although the sun in Elsweyr is much brighter and hotter.
J’Zhirr stops by the nearest inn to make inquiries about the Moth Priest. This means The Bee and Barb at Riften.
Serana sits herself at a nearby table while J’Zhirr approaches the counter. Unfortunately Keerava did not hear any news about a Moth Priest passing through.
Stepping out of Dayspring Canyon, Serana sees a dragon flying overhead and fires a ice bolt at it. Before J’Zhirr realizes what is happening, the dragon lands and starts attacking Serana. J’Zhirr rushes to help. This one swings his dual swords while Serana casts lightning bolts at the dragon. Seizing the opportunity, J’Zhirr jumps onto the dragon’s head and starts wildly slashing. Within a short time, the dragon is dead.
Having Serana around really makes the fight much easier.
