I was devastated when my HD died on me, effectively killing my first bard.
But I was quick to see the advantages: new Morrowind install, new modlist, new character <3
In addition, at that time, I felt like I knew what I was doing stream-wise (that obviously is still debatable) and I was full of hope for my new bard: Aureleiana.
I wanted my bard to be a snobbish Imperial, full of herself even though she was afterall, just a prisoner of a boat in Seyda Neen. She swore to never go to jail again, and to never fall in love as well. She would use her talent and charm to get famous and rich.
I've enjoyed (finally) playing as a bard, though choosing to not use weapons or spells was obviously dooming my bard to weakness and dependence on stronger companions.
Overall, I stayed true to my character, she was frivolous, cowardly and superficial. She did steal but only because she couldn't bear to not have certain beautiful objects. In the end, her mistrust in men was justified: Armand left her, Indiana was a tool she never loved. Her most loyal friend was Spot.
258 episodes of approximately 30 minutes, and we only did a fraction of what there is to do!
The full playlist
And the first episode
Aureleiana achieved fame and fortune but she was not powerful enough to face the Tribunal: Vivec never called her Nerevarine, Almalexia lives and Soltha Sil remains shrouded in mystery.
All of Aureleiana's assets now belong to Arnand though his location is currently unknown.
Spot as we know was mortally injured but it is believed that Sotha Sil saved him and gained a loyal friend.
Indiana (also known as the scrib) will forever mourn his love and never marry.
The Balmora Clothing shop closed due to a lack of merchandise.
The Jolly Troubadour is to this day, the most popular inn of all Tamriel.
Pegasus Estate has been abandoned was no one in Tamriel was either rich or eccentric enough to maintain such a house.
