Returning Home by Isriana Returning Home by Isriana
My nord Dovahkiin, Skaila Skaran returning her home in Winterhold some months before the actual events of the game. I figured that eventually the little northern hometown began to feel a bit too small and quiet for her liking. She finally got to see the world when a traveling merchant hired her along few other young warriors to accompany and protect him on his way back to Whiterun. In time Skaila's way would lead back to home, but not back to ordinary quiet life as it ultimately turns out.
I actually have a house like that in the game thanks to mod called "Winterhold Adobe" I found in Steam Workshop. :pointr: [link] I'm also currently keeping an eye on Winterhold rebuild project to see what kind of goodies they can come up with eventually. :eager:

Reminds me of the first time I walked out of Helgen and saw the land of Skyrim. It was amazing. I'll never forget that.

Both my Nord Dovahkiin Ellowyn (Aye - low- in) and my Khajiit Bastet have sort of sad, dramatic starter stories I've actually written down (for personal use only) but you've inspired me to do some fan art :3
The quality of which may resemble stick figures but what the hey XD

In vanilla version of the game, no. There's a house only if you have the mod installed. :)
