(For my most recent playthrough of Skyrim I decided to utilize some of the survival mods in the game along with some popular overhauls to increase my difficulty and immersion. After my first session I decided to enhance my connection to the game world by chronicling my adventures in journal form. They're short and sweet and I've sprinkled in some screenshots from the actual playthrough to add some flavor. I will update these daily or as I have time to play. It's an old school alternative to the recent popularity of video/streaming our gameplay.)

Thanks for the feedback. I will probably post a journal nightly. It's fun to see how the gameplay is already shaping the story. On a sidenote, the survival mods have really made for a crazy time in game. I'm loving the challenge. Anyone else play Skyrim in this way? I.E. no fast travel, realistic needs, Frostfall, Skyre, etc etc...

A nice throwback to the old school journal entry type of story!

I remember years ago, I read a pretty good light-hearted interpretation of Morrowind. It had journal entries that would mention things like how every Imperial looked like Hugh Grant. Yep, it broke that wall. But it was entertaining nonetheless.

For "Journals of a Bosmer," I like how you subtly hint at your past life before the events of Skyrim and your viewpoint on the Empire. It adds a unique perspective on the familiar situation!
