Told the Graybeards I needed to learn Dragonrend. Arngeir objected strongly when I mentioned the Blades, but I quickly explained the rest of the situation and he relented. The Graybeards then showed me outside to an archway, beyond which a powerful blizzard raged, and taught me the words "Lok vah kor" "Sky, Spring, Summer", or simply, Clear Skies. I used the shout to ascend to the peak of the mountain. How a goat and a troll managed to survive a rip-the-flesh-from-your-bones blizzard I don't know... Trolls can regenerate so it has an excuse, but not the goat!
Turned out that the chief Graybeard was a dragon named Paarthunax, and we shared the traditional-among-dov fire-infused shouting match: Yol... TOOR-SHUL! We then had a fairly pleasant conversation about a Kel-an Elder Scroll located somewhere in Skyrim. Fortunately for me, I already knew of its location thanks to some nut job in a cave north of the College. Hyperion explained that that task was import

Made Hyperion some Dragonplate. You'd expect the bones to be the primary component, but no to my surprise, the scales were, as well as a mace and a Greatsword.
Wandered down into the Ratways, where some Khajiit Thalmor lackey preformed Dumb idea number one. Try to assassinate a master assassin. After patiently lecturing the moron on EVERYTHING-and I did nitpiick-I drove a sword through their chest. Idiot, if you're gonna try and kill me, A) make sure I can't see you and B) don't yell "for the Thalmor!" at the top of your lungs! After officially becomiong a Thieves' Guild initiate, I found Esbern down in the Ratway Warrens and escorted the Blades to Sky Haven Temple. Grabbed Blades armor and Dragonbane, then left after Esbern explained what was on Alduin's Wall. Apparently, I'm destined to defeat that giant monster that nearly killed me in Helgan. Hyperion added that if Alduin had thought ahead, he would've waited a few more moments and let the executioner do his

I have achieved my goal to create draconic weapons and armor! I also began writing a book on how to do it for future generations to learn. I'll try to finish it later! I chose the Riverwood Forge to craft the Scale Armor. The result... oh, it was glorious! I decided then test put my fresh armor to the test by delving into the tomb of Jurgen Windcaller to retrieve his horn. A few draugr (and the word "Fei") later, I discovered the horn was gone!
In it's place was a note asking me to return to Riverwood and rent a certain room in the Sleeping Giant. Along my way, I decided to make a Dragonbone Greatsword and mace at the nearby forge-the only forge I trust with having the honor of producing the armor and weapons of dragons-the former of which was for Hyperion, along with a War-axe.
I proceeded into the inn and rented the attic room. The Innkeeper Delphine promptly explained that since the inn didn't HAVE an attic room, I could take the available one in the back.

Not much happened... got the 20000 gold reward for the Emperor thing, did some smithing training with Eorlund... I also learned how to make Daedric armor and weapons when I completed the training under Eorlund. From now on, I'll be learning on my own. Hyperion is guiding me toward books on the topic to help out, but I get the feeling I'll have to learn the final secret to becoming a Master Smith on my own. I got a little bit of extra training from my first teacher, Ghorza in exchange for retrieving The Last Scabbard of Akrash for her apprentice. Hyperion directed me to Windhelm for my next bit of learning, but it was late when I arrived, so I'm currently camping outside the city and resting. I shall resume tomorrow morning. Oh! Before I forget: I helped one of the Grey-Mane clan in Whiterun escape from a Thalmor prison-gave said Thalmor a black eye!
