The Third Door

The Third Door

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

The women of Skyrim are made of stern stuff, and their affections are not to be spurned lightly. Be careful in the dance of love, lest you find yourself a companion of Nienolas.

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.

The Sultry Argonian Bard, Volume 1
by Ellya Erdain
A short excerpt from Ellya Erdain’s play

Ou bawdy bard is back! The book is part of a play written by Ellya Erdain and is riddled with sexual innuendo, very similar to The Lusty Argonian Maid. Make sure the orphans you’ve adopted are tucked into bed before you crack the spine on this one Dragonborn.

The Betrayed

The Betrayed

The Betrayed

Translated from the Falmer text by Calcelmo of Markarth

Originally titled Unknown Text Vol. 1

Written by Engwe Emeloth

This is one of the unique Ancient Falmer Tomes found in the Forgotten Vale.

The content of this book is written in the ancient Falmer Language. However a translated copy, called The Betrayed, can be obtained if it’s sold to Urag gro-Shub in the College of Winterhold.

The poem relates to the Snow Elves’ slow regression into the twisted Falmer. The title relates to what surviving Snow Elves call the modern Falmer.

This tome can be found by the Dragonborn in the Forgotten Vale. From the Wayshrine of Learning, go straight along the river past the arch seen and between the two broken pillars afterwards. Directly after going through the two pillars, a very tall pillar is visible behind some rocks. Next to this tall pillar there should be a chest, a skeleton, and Unknown Book, Vol. I next to the tallest pillar.

This book is also part of the quest Ancient Falmer Tomes.

Love Poem:

A missive from Calcelmo to Faleen

Calcelmo was love struck by Faleen from the first. However, he was somewhat lacking in courage and élan when it came to matters of the heart. In an effort to aid Calcelmo, Yngvar the Bard has ghost written this poem on Calcelmo’s behalf.

This book is found as part of the Book of Love quest, acquired from Yngvar the Bard by the Dragonborn, then delivered to Faleen.
