This is a little series I am starting where I go through several books from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Number #01 Kolb & the Dragon: An Adventure for Nord Boys.
This book is a choose your own adventure style book found throughout many places in Skyrim.
Read more to see the rules and story.
You read each paragraph untill you come to a choice. When this happens you choses one of the choices and then go to the paragraph indicated. For example “Enter the cold cave. Go to (Paragraph 17)” you go there and carry on reading.
If it says “THE END” and you havent beating the evil dragon then you have failed. You need to try again from the start.
Try not to read the other paragraphs while you scroll down.
There are six endings with only one correct ending.
Good luck Kolb.
Kolb was a brave Nord warrior. One day his Chief asked Kolb to slay an evil dragon that threatened their village. “Go through the mountain pass, Kolb”, his Chief said. “You will find the Dragon on the other side”.
Kolb took his favorite axe and shield and walked to the pass, where he found a cold cave, a windy cave, and a narrow trail.
Enter the cold cave. Go to (Paragraph 17)
Enter the windy cave. Go to (Paragraph 8)
Walk up the trail. Go to (Paragraph 12)
Kolb stepped onto a rocky hill. He could see the dragon sleeping below, and a tavern off a road nearby.
Climb down. Go to (Paragraph 16)
Visit tavern. Go to (Paragraph 14)
Following the stench, Kolb found a filthy orc! The orc snarled and charged Kolb with his spiked club.
Raise Shield. Go to (Paragraph 9)
Swing Axe. Go to (Paragraph 13)
Treading through the marsh, Kolb discovered a wailing ghost blocking his way.
Attack Ghost. Go to (Paragraph 15)
Give Gold. Go to (Paragraph 10)
The head of the axe lodged itself in the tough, scaly neck of the beast. It wailed and thrashed, but Kolb held on and eventually sawed through the neck, killing the beast. Kolb returned home victorious, and his village was never bothered by the dragon again.
Leaving the marsh behind him, Kolb could see the dragon’s lair nearby, as well as a small, welcoming tavern.
Go to the Lair. Go to (Paragraph 16)
Go to Tavern. Go to (Paragraph 14)
A strong gust of wind blew Kolb’s torch out, and knocked him into a pit where split his head and died
The orc cackled as his club splintered Kolb’s shield and smashed into his face. There Kolb died, and the orc had soup from his bones
Kolb remembered a story his Gran told him and tossed to gold chits for the ghost, and it faded away allowing him to pass
Go to (Paragraph 7)
Kolb crept towards the belly of the beast, but no sooner had he taken his eyes off the head of the beast than it snapped him up and ate him whole, axe and all
Climbing up, Kolb found a camp. He met a wise man who shared bread and showed two paths to the dragon’s lair. One went through the hills, the other through a marsh.
Take the hills. Go to (Paragraph 3)
Take the marsh. Go to (Paragraph 5)
Before the orc could strike, Kolb swung his mighty axe. The orc’s head and club fell uselessly to the floor.
Go to (Paragraph 3)
Kolb stopped at the tavern to rest before fighting the dragon. High elves ran the tavern, however, and poisoned his mead so they could steal his gold.
Kolb swung his axe as hard as he could, but the ghost hardly seemed to notice. The ghost drifted into Kolb, and a deep sleep took him over, from which he never awoke.
Kolb found the lair where the dragon slept, tendrils of smoke wafting from its nostrils. The air made Kolb’s eyes sting, and he nearly slipped on the bones of men, picked clean. The beast lay on its side, the throat and belly both waiting targets.
Strike the Neck. Go to (Paragraph 6)
Strike the Belly. Go to (Paragraph 11)
Kolb stepped into the frozen cave, but his Nord blood kept him warm, A smelly tunnel climbed a head of him, and wind howled from another to his left. A ladder was nearby as well.
Take the smelly tunnel. Go to (Paragraph 4)
Take the windy tunnel. Go to (Paragraph 8)
Climb the ladder. Go to (Paragraph 12)
