wake up

My partner's (at the time) alarm clock goes off. My neighbor screams "IT'S TIME TO GET UP!!" I yell back "Oh my GOD leave is ALONE we're about to move." and he shuts up.

skyrim

I am playing Skyrim-like game. I am traveling by horseback east along a stone-paved road parallel to a wide river on a starry night. I pass through a small town and then arrive at a mill called Half Moon Mill (which is canonically run by vampires). I go to speak to the couple who runs the mill and see that they have blue eyes. I had cleared theirs and everyone else's vampirism before during another quest. The husband tells me that no one can be truly cured, and that the taste of blood never leaves you. I respond that he is making me uncomfortable so I leave.

Further up the road I find a wooden bridge and see that there is a gang of bandits. I cross to fight them. I am wearing leather armor and using a two handed warhammer. While fighting one, two others come up to me from behind. They do a lot of damage and I do not have any healing potions, so I use a teleportation potion to return to Half Moon Mill. The map markers are very small and the cursor is large, so I miss and accidentally travel to the first town to the west of the mill. When I arrive I am fully healed.

I travel back toward the east and see a black flaming horse in the road. When I approach it to fight it, it apparently a pig instead. I kill it in one strike and it disappears. When I arrive at the mill again, I check my inventory and it is revealed that I am a ginger Khajiit. I see that I have 4 wigs in my helmets. I point them out to my partner (at the time), who is sitting next to me, and ask which he thinks is coolest, to which he replies that he needs to see them all first. The first, going right to left, is a large afro with a headband on it that makes it a little flatter on top so it is not a sphere. The second is dreads pulled into a ponytail. The third is very long and thick slightly wavy hair with some face framing pieces, and the fourth is the same but without framing. My partner asks how I got these wigs and I say it must be from the bandits which seem to be a new DLC. He hesitates and tells me to pick the first hairstyle but changes his mind and picks the second.

Travelling further up the road, I see a large walled city in a very high fantasy style up a curved hill in the path. I get off my horse and run to it. Battle music starts playing and a panic and enter the city gates without looking, hoping whatever is chasing me can't follow. Inside the city I am still being chased, so I change zones a few times to escape but am unsuccessful and have to turn to fight. The attacker is an 8 foot tall ent with skeletal features that is ghost-white. I struggle to defeat him but I am eventually successful. I check to see why I am so bad at fighting in spite of my high level. It is apparent that I have done a Legendary reset of my skills and that my light armor is only 50, my one handed weapon is 32, and my two handed weapon is 60. I equip a one handed axe so I can level the skill up.

I leave the zone I am in and find myself in an elegant light blue castle. To the left of me is an Altmer guard. I ask him where I am. He responds that I am in the royal castle of Queen Fdsijjshdsk. I ask him to repeat it twice to understand the pronunciation. It is pronounced pretty much how it looks. The guard tells me I am unworthy to be in the castle so I leave.
