I have really got to invest in a horse or something. Clearing out the bandits wasn't so hard, but walking there and walking back is not exactly my mug of ale. Rikke was impressed, and now I'm decked out in some Imperial leathers, so it wasn't all bad. I did walk in on a conversation between her and the General, though, and it didn't sound like something I want to get involved in. They're going to some tomb to get something called the Jagged Crown. It'll apparently help them set Elisif on the throne, and they don't want the Stormcloaks to get it. AAANNNDDD, here she comes. Looks like I'm going with them.
Another two-for-one day. By now I am on a boat in the Gulf of Mexico. Life is good.
