Got partway through Dellach – actually, only a hair past where I had to turn back the previous day due to a full pack – and I had to stop gaming for the day. Ah well.
Accomplishments: found the fisherman's wife's talisman stolen from her grave and returned it. Finished off the last of the four troublesome Ettin Shamans, and turned in the quest at Shieldring. Scouted out the Oratory, good to know there's a merchant (specializing in Sagecrafting) camped outside the door.
Did a bunch of armor rejiggering, especially including making, and socketing, some new gems. Have good new cuirass and chauses. Also, found a secret flooded grotto, swam there an received for my trouble an Essence of Fate plant AND the cowl from the Lyria armor set. Switched over to that set from the Frostweave set for head and hands.
Oh, at Shieldring I found a secret door leading to a dusty hallway, some treasure yes but then also a locked chest requiring a specific key…Hmmmm…
