The Dragon Break

Dragon Break

The Dragon Break
by Fal Droon
Explanation of an historical error of timing

A Dragon Break, sometimes referred to as an un-time, is a temporal phenomenon that involves a splitting of the natural timeline which results in branching parallel realities where the same events occur differently, or not at all. This results in a return to the non-linear timeline of the Dawn Era. At the end of a Dragon Break, the timeline reconnects making all possibilities and outcomes truth, though contradictory to each other.

Fal Droon disputes the truth of the Dragon Break concept and argues it is simply a fiction resulting from poor academic practice.

On Oblivion
by Morian Zenas
A guide to Oblivion and the Daedra

While concise, a wise Dragonborn does not ignore any information that can be gleaned about the Daedra. They are, after all, far to powerful and sinister to be safely ignored.

Remanada

Remanada

Remanada
Fragmented, mythical recounting of the conception of Reman and the return of the Chim-el Adabal with the people of Tamriel

Reman rose to prominence during the Akaviri Invasion during the First Era, after he successfully routed them at the Battle of Pale Pass. Upon their defeat, the Akaviri invaders recognized him as Dragonborn and swore unceasing loyalty to him. In fact, it was the Akaviri who did the most to promote his standing as Emperor, although Reman himself never took that title in his lifetime. As late as the first century of the Third Era, Reman is known to have been worshipped, alongside Talos, as a conqueror god. He was known to have possessed the Amulet of Kings, and passed it onto his successors. Upon his death, he was entombed within Sancre Tor. This tome focuses on the birth of this ancient hero and the importance of the Amulet of Kings as a catalyst of historical events.

Ode To The Tundrastriders
by Unknown
A poem dedicated to giants

The wise citizen of Skyrim steers clear of the giants of the province. Or approaches with ready steel and strong companions. One imagines this unknown admirer has never had the pleasure of being up close and personal with one.
