The Wild Elves
by Kier-Jo Chorvak
Brief description of the Ayleids, or Wild Elves

Are the Ayleids truly lost to time? Is it possible that a people who once ruled an empire could simply fade, and then vanish? They would not be the first in Tamriel’s history to do so. A cautionary tale for all of the living races, as they grasp for power and strive for dominance over the lands.

RUMINATIONS ON THE ELDER SCROLLS
by Septimus Signus

The risks of studying the Elder Scrolls are many. We know sight is lost over time. While Septimus would no doubt defend his writing as an attempt to use analogy to make the incomprehensible sensible, one cannot help but consider that perhaps the mind goes in the end as well.

Alas, poor Yngol was lost in a storm during the crossing, and perished at the hands of the Sea Ghosts before Ysgrammor could find him. What follows is the tale of a father’s rage, and the price he exacted.

Experimentation in the
Physicalities
of the Werewolf
by Reman Crex
A morbid anatomical study of werewolves on live subjects

The advancement of knowledge is not always a tidy thing. Reman makes no excuse for his curiosity about the nature of werewolves. He sets forth with his research with that strange mix of enthusiasm and objectivity tat are often the hallmarks of those who dabble in the macabre.

Varieties of Daedra
by Aranea Drethan, Healer and Dissident Priest
An analysis of Daedra forms, focusing primarily on the Dremora

Varied and numerous, the Daedra of Oblivion often appear to us on Tamriel. Whether a malicious apparition, or consciously summoned by those versed in conjuration, their power is to be feared and respected. A full cataloging of them is likely impossible, but Aranea’s work has done much to expand our understanding.
