I marched throughout the night and into morning, narrowly avoiding becoming breakfast for some hungry wolves. Thankfully, a deer was around to sate their appetite. When Whiterun finally appeared beyond the treeline, I breathed a sigh of relief — I would never have to return to the nightmarish town of Riverwood again.

But then a dark cloud cast a pall over the valley — an omen that the nightmare was not over.

Outside the town, a huntress standing by the corpse of a giant accused me of not helping her fell the beast, as though I had been idling by, spectating the battle. Try as I might to explain that I’d just gotten here and had no idea she was fighting a giant, the only words that came to my tongue were meek apologies:

Within Whiterun, I found naught but vice and villainy. Barbaric villagers engaged in bare-knuckle brawls as onlookers placed bets:

At a local trading post, a cruel man asked me to sell my family into slavery:

And proudly on display was a poor Ent, imprisoned by a fence and a moat:

Deciding to issue a formal complaint with the local Jarl, I made my way toward his lavish estate:

The estate appeared impossibly larger on the inside, with a Great Hall that could house a family of dragons:

Disgusted by the decadence, I leaped onto a dinner table and kicked silverware to the floor. The guards must have secretly wished to do the same for years, because no one stopped me:

After getting through some bureaucratic red tape, I was allowed to speak with the Jarl’s Court Mage, who shared my disdain of Riverwood. But despite having a common hatred, the mage nonetheless insulted my intelligence and called me boring before sending me off on a dangerous fool’s errand:

I cared not for the errand, but jumped at the chance to visit Bleak Falls Barrow, which sounded quite a bit friendlier than Whiterun.

Back to main.
