"Thanks. Any advice before I let Meridia know my intent and set out?"

He shake his head.

"Well. I suppose I should do this, then."

When she returns to the back room, Sigaard doesn't accompany her.

The stone, the beacon, is sitting there on a shelf, innocently, still just looking like an oddly-shaped pebble.

Permalink

She'll pick it up.

"Hello," she says. "I'll take the beacon to your shrine."

"I think I do - there's an indication of where the shrine might be - but some guidance wouldn't hurt."

"Thank you. I'll set out with the morning - which's soon enough."

Having gotten permission from Malielle, she takes the beacon with her as she gets her things together, sets it on her bedside table while she steals a few hour's sleep, then sets out as the sun is peeking over the horizon.

"So," she says once she's out of the guards' hearing range. "I'm guessing starting out south-southwest?"

She nods, and starts walking, keeping an eye out for something that looks like the mountain in the vision. It's a three day walk to Dragonbridge, and there's two major turn offs before that - to the Thalmor Embassy about a day out, and a broad path leading to the northern coast, forts, and mining towns about two days out.

The mountain is unfortunately not terribly distinctive.  But with a map and a little help from Meridia she'll be able to find, a few days out, a winding path uphill, feeble and long-disused, with a sign warning against following it where it breaks from the main road.

She's good at cross-country hiking fortunately, and has the right gear for the long walk and the climate. She turns off the road, asks, "Anything I should be on the lookout for?"

But the journey is quiet for a while.

Still, she'll be cautious as she walks, paying attention to her surroundings, looking for signs of ruins or habitation or enemies.

Permalink

The road winds through chilly mountainous woods.  The days are still.

Permalink

But one night, she may perceive something lurking outside her tent.

Permalink

She'll put her hand on her sword, climb gently to her feet, and listen for a moment. 

Permalink

There is something that is not entirely unlike wind, and something that is not entirely unlike whispers.

 

Permalink

She steps out of the tent.

Two pinpricks of red light, like glowing eyes, stare back at her -

- whatever it is that's outside her tent, it howls, rasps, rears back -
