Skyrim’s Rule:
An Outsider’s View
by Abdul-Mujib Ababneh
A Redguard explains Skyrim’s political system

Considered backward and almost tribal by many, the political system in Skyrim is in fact quite nuanced. Traditional structures strive to maintain balance and peace among the Nords, and the province has integrated its own political system into that of the larger Empire. How stable this system proves to be in the face of the current crisis remains to be seen.

Black Arts on Trial

Black Arts on Trial

The Black Arts On Trial
by Hannibal Traven, Archmagister of the Mages Guild
A summary of the salient points of the debate which led to the resolution of the Mages Guild on the subject of Necromancy

Little about magic is more feared and divisive than the art and study of necromancy. This tome is perhaps the best collection of argument for and against this school of magic. The magically inclined Dragonborn will find reading most instructive, coming away with a greater understanding of the illusory arts.

The Talos Mistake

The Talos Mistake
by Leonora Venatus
Imperial Liaison to the Aldmeri Dominion
Propaganda encouraging acceptance of the ban on the worship of Talos

When Tiber Septim passed to Aetherius, there came to be a Ninth Divine – Talos, also called Ysmir, the “Dragon of the North.” The man who was so loved in life became worshiped in death. This inspired humans in a new, and to the Aldmeri, dangerous way. If one human could ascend to godhood, could not they all? They moved quickly to outlaw the worship of Talos and this is but one piece of propaganda to justify that.

Scourge of the Gray Quarter

Scourge of the Gray Quarter
by Frilgeth Horse-Breaker
A complaint on the presence and behavior of the growing Dunmer population of Skyrim

This rather xenophobic tract serves as social commentary on the Dunmeri-Argonian relationship from the point of view of Frilgeth, a very nationalistic Nord. Regardless of how the Dragonborn chooses to perceive the presence of the Dunmer in Skyrim, it can not be doubted that the influx of these people has become a source of contention among the common folk of the land.
