A brief treatise on the few felines that can be found in Skyrim

To be honest Dovahkiin, there aren’t a lot of friendly felines in Skyrim. And no, that isn’t a slur on the Khajiit. I assure you, after reading this book, you’ll be a confirmed dog person.

Thief of Virtue
A bawdy tale of one thief’s quest for coin, and capture of a lady’s virtue

Ravius Terinus was a handsome man. A dangerous man. A man who felt entitled to the possessions of others. But oh, how the tables were turned, when late one night he was caught red handed with a purse of ancient collectible coins by an avaricious noblewoman.

The Sultry Argonian Bard, Volume 1

A short excerpt from Ellya Erdain’s play

Ou bawdy bard is back! The book is part of a play written by Ellya Erdain and is riddled with sexual innuendo, very similar to The Lusty Argonian Maid. Make sure the orphans you’ve adopted are tucked into bed before you crack the spine on this one Dragonborn.

The Customs and Philosophy of Grave and Faithful Council

By Celarus the Loremaster

A guide to the Psijic Order and their beliefs

The Psijic Order is an ancient and powerful group, possessing great knowledge and influence. Whether or not the Dragonborn has a keen interest in magicka and mysticism, it would be wise to gain an understanding of what motivates this group. One never knows when they may encounter a Psijic, or what influence they may exert over one’s life.

Opinions of the god Lorkhan and the origin of creation

The life of a Dragonborn is often a hectic, even harrowing, experience. Much effort is made to simply survive the world they find themselves in. Perhaps today, if for only a brief moment, we should ponder the origin of this world and the greater purpose of the adventurous life you lead Dovahkiin.

A description of various Daedra

Whether you fear or worship them, or both, the Daedra are not to be ignored in the lands of Tamriel. A Dragnborn may find themselves serving a Daedra in one moment, and summoning one to serve their own ends in the next. Regardless of what you think of them, or how you interact with them, only a fool would choose to remain ignorant of the Daedra.  So lend your ear Dragonborn, and perhaps you will learn something that gives you the edge on a future day.

Galerion The Mystic

Galerion the Mystic

Galerion The Mystic
by Asgrim Kolsgreg
A biography of Galerion, a Psijic who founded the Mages Guild

Vanus Galerion, born as Trechtus, was an Altmer mage of the Psijic Order during the Second Era. He founded the Mages Guild in response of the growing influence of the necromancer Mannimarco on the continent of Tamriel and the failure of his former Order to act against the threat. He and his followers eventually defeated Mannimarco’s necromancer army. Galerion died in this last great battle.

This book is the tale of his beginnings. From learning literacy behind the back of a tyrannical lord, to encountering those that would eventually lead him to the Psijic Order.

How a short-tempered Daedra tries to make something of himself

Settle in by the fire Dragonborn, and let me tell you the tale of a middling Daedra and an archer you’ve probably never heard of. Wait, wait, don’t rise from your seat just yet! If you are keen of ear, and patient throughout the telling, you may just find yourself a little more skilled with a bow when next you loose an arrow.
