The Falmer – A Study

The Falmer – A Study

by Ursa Uthrax

A study on Falmer, recounting their war with the Dwemer

The story of the Falmer is indeed a tragedy. This once noble people, crushed first by defeat and then by betrayal, are now but monsters lurking in the dark. Let not your sympathy stay your hand Dragonborn, for there is nothing of their former beauty left within them.

Imperial Report on Saarthal

Imperial Report on Saarthal

by Heseph Chirirnis

A report from a Mages’ Guild Scholar assigned to Imperial Archaeologist Sentius Floronius

While some are no doubt deeply interested in the culinary pursuits of the ancient residents of Saarthal, Heseph quickly tired of Sentius’ pursuit of such things. Instead, in this missive, he turns his attention to the nature of the Fall of Saarthal.

Harvesting Frostbite Spider Venom
A brief guide to harvesting frostbite spider venom

Listen kid, I’d love to go back in that cave for more venom, but I tripped on some web and I have this bum knee now. Why don’t you go in there and fetch a few vials for me? I’ll give you a few pointers and you’ll be an expert in no time. Easy as pie, I promise.

Herbane’s Bestiary:
The Ice Wraiths
by Herbane
A guide to Ice Wraiths

The mighty Herbane returns! This time, from the frozen northern reaches of Skyrim. What fools the locals are with this fear of Ice Wraiths! Herbane shall stride out into the blowing snow, face down this so called scourge, and best it in a single blow! All that, with nary a tremble.

Power of the Elements

Power of the Elements

Power of the Elements

by Shalidor

A poetic rendition of what seems to be a combat between Shalidor and an unworthy apprentice. Or perhaps Shalidor employed trickery to gain possession of a tome previously lost to the ages. A careful reading should lead the Dragonborn to other tomes of great power.

Lycanthropic Legends of Skyrim

Lycanthropic Legends

Lycanthropic Legends of Skyrim
by Lentulus Inventius, Order of the Horn
A recounting of the unwillingness of Skyrim’s inhabitants to share stories of Lycanthropy

There is a dark underbelly to Skyrim, Dragonborn. Under the pale stars and the waning and waxing moon, creatures of myth become real and stalk the common folk. Lentulus seeks to more about this but, unsurprisingly perhaps, finds the people of Skyrim unwilling to drag stories of these beasts into the light.

The Posting of the Hunt

The Posting of the Hunt
A document announcing a ritualistic hunting of a mortal by Daedra

They toy with us Dovahkiin, these creatures of Oblivion. We are but prey. Hares for their amusement. Pursuing us for nothing more than thrill, and some high minded claim of aesthetic understanding. This is the true nature of the Daedra; the true view they hold of us. Never forget this. Should you have dealings with them in your travels, know what it is they see you as.
