Volume 5 – The Adventures The Young Dragonborn
Chapter #222 – To The Skaal Village
A/N: The Extra that was promised came amidst salt and smoke. Only smoke though!
Outside Fort Frostmoth, it was about sunset and I was following Alina to where Wulfur and the rest were. What I didn’t expect to see is some Redoran Guards were here too.
“We were taking permission to make our people camp in the area, Wulfur checked the two buildings in the Fort and found it all good. The Guards of House Redoran are only here to monitor us.” Alina reported.
“Good. They can’t let some group of outlanders stay in the Fort next to the town even if it some old ruins now.”
“You see value in that place?”
“Yes, it has its own dock and it is easy to defend. If we used the ash to make some Roman Concrete and reinforce the fort and rebuild the walls then this will be our trading post from now on. Once Raven Rock gets back on the map, the East Empire Company won’t be able to make a comeback here.” I said.
“I see! The position is indeed good and easy to defend.”
“Still too early for us to get anything done that early. We need to ask for it right after the Third Phase.”
“You are the Boss.”
Indeed I am.
After a bit of inspection, I finally met with Wulfur.
“What do you think of the Hammer?” That was what I asked right when I saw him.
“Incredible!” He said.
“And the Enchantment?”
“What is that about?” Alina asked.
“The hammer Wulfur Acquired is the ‘Champion’s Cudgel’. The hammer features Imperial symbols on the sides of a very block-like head. Below that, there is a section of the handle wrapped in crimson cloth. About an inch down after that, there is a steel band and the rest of the handle is wooden, with a steel pommel on the bottom. The head is shaped like a normal hammer, with a small crown of spikes on the top. The Enchantment itself is called the ‘Chaos Damage’ enchantment. It can cause a chance for each element of Fire, Frost and Shock to do damage.”
“Amazing. It has the same personality as Wulf.” Alina said.
“Yes, I think so too.” I agreed.
“Hey, what is that about?” Wulfur seemed to feel like he was being ridiculed.
“For the Blacksmith who can’t decide which weapon that suits him and prefers an eating fork as a weapon, this enchantment is as chaotic as you are, bro.” I broke it down to him.
Wulfur seemed upset but deep down he knew it was logical. This airhead is actually pretty good with weapons to the point that he can’t decide what is the best weapon to use. I forced him on the idea of Warhammers and he seems to have stabilized on it too.
“Is there a place I can rest around here?” I asked.
“Go on the ship. We are staying the night in the fort.”
“Manage the situation then, join us for dinner.”
I went back to the ship and asked for an empty cabin and a tub. Alina and Jull joined me later for a bath.
I started discussing the matter regarding my cultivation with them, they were both interested and asked a lot of question.
“What we reached here is a grey area that even Nurina can’t teach us about. The risk is removed for now and I don’t really feel anything dangerous so I will begin teaching you as soon as we get back to Winterhold.”
“You may want to delay it for a bit, the raid on Japhet’s Folly is supposed to be the core of your attention.” Jullanar said.
“Oh, right! Then after the raid then.”
I still needed time to check how the Acupoints and the Meridians in their bodies look like. They are both females and Jull is a half-Elf so I need to understand the differences if there are any.
I kept discussing with them most of the theories around the matter while washing each other and they were really helpful. Alina’s understanding of Mysticism and Jull’s sense to Magic are really good.
In the end, my mental exhaustion made my brain feel like dying.
“Come, have some rest.” Alina pulled my head to her chest. I didn’t resist and offered let myself get pulled.
“Boob sandwich!” Jull didn’t let the chance go and the other side of my face got some boobs too.
“What a heavenly sight!” I couldn’t help but praise and surrendered to the heaven I found myself in.
They kept like this for a while but the girls were silent. I looked up there and understood why.
“You two need to stay away from Nurina and Faralda from now on.” I separated the two girls from their ears and they did willingly with cheeky smiles on their faces.
“Come on, Jon. We didn’t do it last night.”
“Yes, Wulfur took you and even Bjorna was upset.”
The two girls learned how to trigger me and they started to act accordingly and put me under their charm. I frankly was in the mood since I saw them kiss each other.
“Okay, don’t blame me for what is going to happen when you seduce me.” I carried both girls on my arms and stepped out of the tub.
With my newly acquired breakthrough, I activated the ‘Third Eye’ and looked through the walls of the ship. It was much easier than any time I ever used it before and it was not that hard at all. I looked at our cabin and teleported the three of us in an instant.
I inner-cast the teleportation spell and moved like that, the girl’s were easily impressed. I put them on the bed and we started having sex with no holding back.
Two hours passed and I was finally done. The girls were sleeping on the bed with all kinds of pleasure fluids all around the place.
“I warned you, guys.” I said and lied between them.
Alina climbed on my chest and looked at me in the eye.
“You really show no mercy when you get horny.” She remarked.
“Your first time?” Jullanar asked her.
Alina nodded, “Yes, you always told me about how messy it can get.”
“Sorry about it.” I smiled wryly.
“If not for Elishka when he gets like that, I may have lost my mind from the pleasure.” Jull said.
“Elishka, huh? You sure have a lot of girls here and there Mr. Boss.” Alina said as she got on top of me and pressed her nails on my chest.
“I hope it doesn’t cause you annoyance.”
“Not at all! I am not some idiot girl who gets jealous over her man. As the most beautiful girl in Skyrim or maybe all Nirn I don’t have anyone to be jealous of. There is only one Lady Boss and that is me.” Alina said and played with her hair.
“Okay, okay! You are the Lady Boss.”
I was a bit worried if things will turn into drama but gladly it didn’t. I don’t hide my outside affairs from them at all, they actually know about every girl I slept with other than them. I don’t like to do so unless necessary like Elishka whose relationship with me is actually special to me or someone like Vittoria who needs to be kept as my little bitch in the East Empire Company.
I actually limited all my relationship to Alina and Jull as they are my family that needs my full attention. I know there sexual preferences and I always pleasure them to the best of my ability. Alina may like it sensual but she always someone who likes to be kissed and hear nice words during sex, while Jull is cowgirl who loves to be on top every time.
I find it disturbing that Little Jon got too wild for the girls to handle, I am thinking of making some new way of Sex Magic using the new Cultivation technique but I have no idea how that would ever work. I heard stories about it from my past life but I am not even aware of what the basics are. I guess I will research more but later.
Back to the present, I took the girls once again to the tub and started cleaning once again. This time we finished quickly and went to be.
Next Morning, I woke up late which is rare but I still got up and went outside to the deck.
“Morning, Captain Ongeim. How is the work on the excavation site?”
“We just got started this morning, the workers are a bit lax but still manageable.”
“Good work, I’ll bring the gang and come to see how things are going.”
The excavation in Kolbjorn Barrow is important and needed a lot of hands to be done. With the request of mining resources in the area got granted from Raven Rock, we shouldn’t be wasting any time.
After breakfast, I took Nefertiti, Alina, Jull, Wulfur and Bjorna to Kolbjorn Barrow that was buried under ashes and started observing the work. An hour passed and we started to think of something to pass time with.
“Should we visit the stones of the All-Maker? It would be fun to go there.” Bjorna asked.
“I would say we go to the Skaal Village.” I said.
“You want to go there?”
“We need some miners for the Stalhrim after all, the Skaal know the mountains like the back of their hands.”
This was my plan to get closer to the Skaal, hiring some of them to Mine Stalhrim won’t go against their rules or traditions. These people are well connected to the land of Solstheim and to their God, the All-Maker.
The All-Maker is an interesting deity. Unlike the pantheons of other cultures across Tamriel, the All-Maker is the sole deity in the faith of the Skaal, giving the faith a unique monotheistic quality. I like the idea of the All-Maker as it carries the same principles on how I view what God should be, a sole almighty deity.
For the Skaal, the All-Maker is the source of all life and creation. When a creature dies, its spirit returns to the All-Maker, who shapes it into something new and returns it to Mundus. The concept of death as an ending to life is unknown to the Skaal. Rather, death is seen as simply the beginning of the next stage of an endless journey.
The Skaal believe in a metaphysical being called the Adversary who is always watching, and that he delights in tormenting the All-Maker and his chosen people. He will steal away the gifts of the Skaal unless they can go on a pilgrimage to keep the gifts.
The All-Maker is solely worshipped in Solstheim by the native Nords as all the other Nords are mostly followers of the common pantheon. He bestowed six mystical stones on Solstheim that would keep his presence and blessings in the land, these are the Tree Stone, Sun Stone, Beast Stone, Wind Stone, Earth Stone and Water Stone.
These Stones give various gifts to those who meditate to them, a blessing or an ability of sort that can only be used one time then one should meditate again to gain it.[A/N: I have changed some of the All-Maker Stone powers but they are still in the same category they are about like the Beast Stone that conjures werebears can be turned to Animal Allegiance for example.]
If one analyzed these gifts, one can gain an understanding that they have some representation to some Aedra and Daedra like Akatosh and Hircine.
It gave me have an idea of what is the real aspect of the All-Maker may really be but that’s a discussion for another time. Right now, we rode our Flame Horse Atronachs and headed to the Skaal Village.
