Wraith's Wedding Dowry

The Wraith’s Wedding Dowry
by Voltha gra-Yamwort
(translated by Apthorne)

Nothing says love like starving a prisoner until they marry you. Still, it seemed to convince the lovely Voltha. So passionate she was, that she braved the wrath of her entire thieves gang to ensure she had a dowry, all without tearing a single thread of her wedding dress. Could you do the same Dragonborn?

A description of the nature and effect of Vaermina’s Torpor

Revised Edition
by Sinderion
A description of the enigmatic plant called Nirnroot

Far more than an ear splitting piece of magical plant life, the Nirnroot has proven to be a survivor. Despite it’s fantastic efforts at adaptation, our friend Sinderion fears for its continued existence in Tamriel. It would seem that he underestimated the plant however, for almost two hundred years after this writing, the Nirnroot continues to assault the ears of simple folk crossing bridges or fishing by the riverside to this day.

The Hope of the Redoran
by Turiul Nirith
A tale of a child blessed by a prophesy and the interpretation thereof
 You of all people, Dragonborn, should have an interest in the nature of prophesy and its impact on the course of one’s life. I suggest a careful reading of this tome, followed by considered thought on the precise and often fickle nature of divination.
