As you will all know, we have literally thousands of stubs for ESO. This is more likely to happen with ESO; there are literally thousands of NPCs, many of whom have no unique dialogue. However, they are all 'de-stubable'.
For an ESO NPC article to be worth de-stubbing, it needs to be worth reading. Therefore, if you can improve one by making sure it has the following things...:
- A quote
- If not, a line saying "This character has no unique dialogue"
- What they are actually doing. IE. Are they talking to another NPC? Are they always taking notes? Are they reading?
- Where exactly they can be found. IE. "They can be found by the city gates to the east…

So I played through Skyrim and Oblivion (the only games of the TES I have), and noticed that all the destruction spells were really bland, all the spells practically did the same thing, the fireballs for example were just that, and did nothing more than have more damage as ou bought new one, maybe did some dps, or aoe, but thats it. Skyrim is guilty too, sure they added some new things like runes, cloaks, and elemental walls, and cool aoe, but thats about it. The runes? No variety, same thing, you step on them, they explode, and nothing more save for effects unique to the school of magic. Cloaks? Again same thing, same damage, nothing special, each did the same as one from another school but with efectts related to that school of magic, th…Read more >

One of the things I don't get is that no matter what race the Last Dragonborn is, the souls of Sovngarde will welcome them back to Shor's Hall when they die, yet the Ebony Warrior, who let's face it, has earnt the right to go to Sovngarde after all the bandits and things he has defeated, is unable to, if a non-Nord Dragonborn can go to Sovngarde, why can't a Redguard who has done countless valiant things, and expressly wished to do so?Read more >
- Location: Daggerfall, Glenumbra
- Author: Malbrii Vul Lovaas
- Description: The worn journal is filled with thoughts of a Khajiit woman named Malbrii. From the first three and only entries, she seems to be a thief looking for money.
Daggerfall seems like a good place to steal from... Houses are in the northern area. Lavergne household mostly has nothing of worth, as with the Landreau house. Landreau house has the cat on the steps. Usually some good loot in the Gane house, though the men inside called this one a 'filthy dog'. Stole their pie because of it. Malbrii is a Khajiit, and a beautiful one at that. Save the Stogrin house for last; there's an exit out the back, good for a quick getaway to the Refuge. So far, I've made…

Madman97 (brooding in his chair, folds his hands): Forgive me, everyone. I find myself rather torn. I have been lazy to write a new interview. Work is only so much of an excuse. I've managed to find time to go on chat and think back to a darker time in our community. It's...given me time to reflect. A user I had not seen for some time came back on the other day and we told each other stories about what was happening in our lives. I told him how much this community has changed for the better but doing so reminded me of what I was back in the day. How much I criticized the Elder Scrolls games with a zany property. It was bonkers! Until I reached a point where everything …

So I was caught pickpocketing from the Jarl of Riften, I slashed her with my sword, a sent both her and her housecarl flying across the room with Unrelenting Force, I was making my escape from the Jarl's Quarters when a guard appeared and tried to apprehend me, however I bribed her for just 12 Gold! There were two bribe options, one for 12 gold and another for 706 gold! WTF!?Read more >
Hi all, Atvelonis here. It’s finally 2016, and we’re starting to shape up as a wiki and as a community. Only a little less than a year ago, the wiki was in shambles. There were no active administrators and we had fallen greatly behind on content due to a drama-ridden and ever-dwindling userbase. However, thanks to a lot of hard work and persistence, we were able to overcome this and rise back up as a community. We worked together to abolish outdated, unwanted rules and, brick by brick, built back up our tower of knowledge, as it were. We built back up our staff and regained a foothold on our climb upwards.
.]] There was some drama and trouble along the way, but as we did with everything else, we overcame it. No longer are we an unstable and…Read more >
Hi guys! I just wanted to wish you all a Happy 2016 New Year, stay well, stay sane, all that.
I know this has been a somewhat chaotic year, but I honestly think this Wiki has a bright future ahead of it. This was the year we finally purged the corruption from our community and put caring and capable people in charge of the Wiki, and I being here for two and a half years have seen much improvement already.
I'm going to try to edit & help out here more too, but I've been busy lately with other projects on other Wikis.
Have a Happy New Year TES Wiki! :)Read more >

Madman97 (Looking like Sheogorath in Han's clothes): This isn't something I normally do, especially when the franchise has nothing to do with the Elder Scrolls. I made a point to some others within the chat that my next blog would be the best anyone has ever seen on this website, but everyone gets sidetracked by reality, hmm? And in my reality, things have been extremely busy during the Holiday Season and I apologize for my absence. The kind of work I do required odd hours and troubled minds. Naturally, I need some time to myself, and as much as I love you guys, my own mind is my true escape...Until...I found out a relative was coming to visit and had Star Wars tickets.

So since i started ESO i have allways said the covenant is basically Scotland for theese reasons
The picts are the natives of Scotland who arrived from Iberia, The Flemish had a huge influence on Scotland i would also say the Flemish-Scots are Reachmen. And the celts are from Ireland who also decended from Iberian celts like the Picts.
Now I have the proof, From the years 1638-1651 a line of wars happend called The Wars of The Three Kingdoms.
It was basically Ireland, Scotland and England at war all killing each other, I found out about this when i learnt my family raised a few armies for the scots, The Scots where called "Scottish Covenanter" after the Biblical Covenant because they were Pro…Read more >

For those of you who've been here a little while - every 10,000 edits I do, I write a little blog. I've been doing this back since the good ol' days back in 2011. Its taken me a fair while to get up to this point, but here we are. (Also - fair warning - it gets a little weird at the end).
Its a chance for me to look back and reflect on how the wiki is going, too, and thank you all for the wonderful work YOU all have been doing lately to make the wiki great - because each and every one of you has helped, in their own way, to make the wiki the amazing place that it is.

Hey guys! Popping by with a another "How to" guide. This one be really quick and simple.
Over the course of my time here at Wikia, I've noticed a decent amount of users have asked me from time to time "How do you create a page like that?" The process is very simple - It really shouldn't be made into a blog, but here I am doing just that anyway.
- Go to your profile
- Add title behind the url
- Go to that page
- Edit that page
- Hit Publish!
A sandbox, as well as any page for the matter, is a lot easier to create on a PC than a Mobile device, so I'd recommend you'd swap to PC, if you aren't on one already. From there, go to your profile page your profile page. Take a quick look at your profile page's url: Notice how the url involves your account? For examp…

Hey guys! I was giving some thought to a variety of the types of edits, and I decided - why not make a blog on how to make an infobox, and how the layout is supposed to go.
An Infobox is a table placed on the right side of the page in order to show basic information. An infobox, is also defined on Wikipedia as "a fixed-format table designed to be added to the top right-hand corner of articles to consistently present a summary of some unifying aspect that the articles share and sometimes to improve navigation to other interrelated articles." It is used by Wikia on (almost) every single page at (almost) every single wiki. So, what's so great about an infobox? Infoboxes are an summary of basic page information, and help improve the page by givi…

Hey guys! I recently took the time to make my own personal signature, and I've noticed that some users do not know how to make a signature. As such, I decided I should make a blog to help people out. I compiled this from what I could find on Wikia - My main sources are Monchoman45 and Dzylon. Thanks, the both of you!
First, you need to design your own signature. The easiest way to make your own signature is to go to your settings, is to go to Special:Preferences and change your "Custom signature", under "Signature". A very basic signature is something like .

I have never written a blog in my life. I've never needed to, but a thought has come to mind. I have given myself a challenge to build all three homesteads without using gold. UNLESS it's necessary. But even then gold does not have to be used.
Cutting the logs myself will take quite a while, but in the end, I have used no gold. Materials for inside the house can either be found, collected off of animals or stolen. Again, not a single gold coin would be used. So perhaps I should stick to using no gold to make the challenge a ligitmate challenge.
When I have completed part of the house I have chosen to do, I shall write about it and include how long it took me to aquire the materials. Given, the small house and furnishings outside will not be …

Madman97: Dave, do you ever look back and wonder...what was it like before us?
Dave: Not really.
Madman97: Neither do I. Never really thought about it. But I find Atvelonis' sandbox history so interesting. Think about it. All this resolution and revolution over a small community ran by a few key players while the other thousands are none the wiser...
Dave: Sounds like pretty much the same thing that went on recently. The wheel turns. Nothing is new under the Sun.

Hello! I just signed up for this account, and am more than happy to answer any questions or curiosities you may have about Elder Scrolls lore. My specialty is Aedra, Daedra, Oblivion, and Aetherius, but I also know so much more. Thanks!Read more >
Hello, so I had a Q&A around this time last month and asked you, the community if you had any questions for me, I got two questions (if you can even call Madman's reply that). Despite this whole experiment being less popular the second time around, I'll still answer the questions.
From Madman97: Oh come now, Zipper. You could have just asked me to Interview you.
I didn't want an interview, Maddie, already got one (thank you Emperor Jarjarkine ^_^), I wanted you to ask a question so I could answer it on this blog, and not waste time answering random crap! Sorry, sorry, off topic.
