Yeah, it turns out most people lose their appetite after a pile of dead bodies is dumped in front of them. They gladly donate their delicious cakes to you. This is the best day.
Dairihill apologizes for the abrupt, disastrous ending to the dinner. The soldier usually doesn’t show up until later in the evening, she says, but he apparently made better time than usual today. He does displays like this frequently, but his heart is in the right place. So very, very wrong, but in the right place.
You say it’s fine; you’re no stranger to extremely awkward disasters. So what happens to the bodies?
Dairihill says she doesn’t know; Baeralorn generally comes in later and takes them away, probably to bury. If you’re asking about their belongings, well, I guess it just goes to whoever is willing to take it. Bandits usually don’t have much of value.
You thank her for the help and tell her to pass your compliments along to the chef who prepared tonight’s meal. You’re gonna go loot those corpses now.
Oh come on. He looks nothing like you. Racist.
You have no idea how to siphon magicka out of dead bodies… or if that is even a thing you can do with your weird Atronach powers.
You do take the Khajiit’s sweet machete, though! This is way better than the one you made out of a piece of glass and a broomstick. Oh, almost forgot, you’ll have to add “a new broomstick” to the list of things you owe Quill-Weave; her old one is buried under a hundred feet of rubble.
This is kind of a brutish weapon, you guess, but it’s not like you’re actually going to use it on a regular basis. It’s for emergencies, and in a true emergency you frankly don’t care how much blood splatter there is. As long as it’s enough to make the emergency go away.
But yeah, you and Quill should probably leg it before an enraged and violent countess storms back into this room.
You meet Quill-Weave back at the entrance to the dining room. She seems a bit eager to leave, possibly due to the pile of dead bodies. You point out that she has some icing on her face.
She thanks you for the heads-up and licks it off.
You sure are helpful!
