To get some variety, I asked around in a castle for quests, and got one.. a noble sent me to kill a monster (of unspecified type) that had been bothering an ally of his. So I recall back to my usual mages' guild and teleport to the Haunt of Darkovus, and search for said critter.
The dungeon is populated by Vampires and Vampire Ancients, and they were about as plentiful as candy on Halloween. For those of you who don't play Daggerfall: Vampire Ancients can easily kill the strongest character if she's not careful or lucky.
The beast I was sent to kill? A mere Giant. -_-
Vampire Ancients have been showing up with an alarming frequency recently. I guess it comes with being level 15.. but instead of the usual juggernaut, a level 15 Healer isn't that tough.
I'm already thinking of ideas for my next character.. and I still have several main storyline quests to do.
Stupid SeMagic spellchecker. "Teleport" is a perfectly common word. Who here doesn't have teleport in their vocabulary?
