Skyrim: Can't Resist Shiny by Isriana Skyrim: Can't Resist Shiny by Isriana
You've got a point there, Mercer. :|
But on the other hand... shiny ship! :iconlawooplz:

This one is based on those half dozen times I died because I got obsessed obtaining a model ship placed in the middle of a trapped room. That was actually the first time I encountered those fire traps, too - otherwise I would've known to shoot them down from the doorway and not dash through the burning room for some sorry artifact. Trial and error, trial and error...
I also must point out that I joined Thieves Guild at very low levels (and invested almost all my points to stamina instead of health) so the whole Snow Veil Sanctum was pretty darn deadly place for poor Bron. Never have I been as happy to have Mercer Frey by my side as at the time when I came across a room full of Draugr Scourges or Deathlords or whatever... While they focused on beating the crap out of Mercer I could shoot them full of arrows from a much safer distance. :D

Anyway, this comic was somewhat better in my head, but as it turns out it's a bit too late to second guess when you have already spend eight hours inking and coloring. :shrug: Ah, well.

Bron Martes me

Oh, I tortured Mercer mercilessly (no pun intended) in that ruin. Fire traps, gate traps, Draugr hordes, stray arrows... I was very, um... accident prone. And Mercer always seemed to be the one who took the consequences, strangely enough. EVIL Laughter!

the sanctum...i closed a door and slashed at them through it and still almost died with those's a good thing mercer couldn't die, as soon as he got up like 5 draugrs went after him and kill him instantly...i learned a very important lesson-use some of you points in the weapon skill tree

I remember that ship, and the death after i've taken it the first time. My character was at level 3 vampirism this time so she instantly died after she had taken the ship. Just forgot to feed her before entering the dungeon >.<.

Btw. How did bron react after Mercers betrayal and being rescued by Karliah?

I remember that sanctuary... Yeah, I had my health and magicka mainly increased, but even so I still had a hard time NOT dying when I was fighting all the Draugr there. Maybe it's because I have a hard time realizing I need to get into my potions... But, I was also glad that Mercer was there to take them out.

I also remember the ship. It looked pretty, and I considered taking it, but then I saw it was worth no value so I just continued on adventuring, not giving it another thought.

Turns out it's one of those collectibles you're supposed to return to Delvin. I didn't know it at the time, but eh - take all the shinies... ;P

Really? :?

Now I'm starting to regret not taking it... even if I did want to avoid the trap, and didn't know about that trick before.

Yeah, it's part of a quest:…
