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.

Ode To The Tundrastriders

Ode To The Tundrastriders

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.

The Third Door

The Third Door
by Annanar Orme
Tale of a heart-broken, vengeful, axe-wielding woman

The Five Songs of King Wulfharth

The Five Songs of King Wulfharth
A summary of five epic songs of King Wulfharth, plus an apocryphal song of the Tribunal, Dagoth-Ur, and Indoril Nerevar

Wulfharth, also known as Ysmir and Dragon of the North, was an ancient king of Skyrim. He is the subject of several Nordic myths and legends, where he has become known as The Underking. He is said to have died more than three times. The first time was while saving the lives of his people but he was resurrected by Shor as his champion. After being killed at the Battle of Red Mountain, he returned back to life as the Underking. He worked in the shadows in the days of Tiber Septim to exact his vengeance against his old enemies and died for the last time, successfully trying to save the world of the powers of the Numidium during the events of the Warp in the West in the Third Era.
