We all know the whole thing with Thalmor hating Tiber Septim for conquering Summerset Isles with Numidium, plus there are speculations that Talos needs to be removed, in order to set about the destruction of Creation (All of Mondus in Particular).
However, I see another reason for that. Talos, when he was still Tiber Septim, manteled the aspect of Shor/Lorkhan when he did the whole thing with Numidium. In the way, when he became ninth divine, he took place of the "Missing God" in the Pantheon. No matter what people may say, I believe Lorkhan/Shor was meant to be as one of the divines, but he had to die so that Mondus could have been stablized. Now, we all know that Thalmor blame Lorkhan for Altmeri loosing their divinity (Which is only a my…Read more >

Alright, before all of you p*ss yourselves, this is not an argument as to why the Stormcloaks are superior. No, this is another episode of Blog Critic, where I critique serious lore blogs and give them the verdict. Written by Zippertrain85, who in my opinion is one of this wikia's more prominent members among the others on my metaphorical list, back in May, this blog got hundreds of comments either from supporters of his argument, or YouTube comment level rage douchebags. I admit, doing this one would have been kind of unfair as I do support the Imperials more than the Stormcloaks, but let's ju…Read more >

Two years ago a certain blog was released by a user only known as JoshofBlades. This blog explained why the Empire was supposedly better then the Stormcloaks, and how we needed it in order to stop the Thalmor. It was really popular in the day, but it did get many things wrong. As a matter of fact, these blogs were one of the reasons I wanted to make an account on Wikia. Because I wanted to show the community a different side of things. So let's delve into this, once and for all.
"Well if you remember the Empire was victorious in the War but signed the White-Gold Concordant(for those of you who don't know it's the legal document that banned the Worship of Talos) To bring peace as the war was slowly weakening the Empire, I don't agree with t…Read more >
When travelling between places, is it better to walk or fast travel? I know its quicker to just warp to a location, but you miss out on any random encounters that could happen between point A and B, not to mention any loot. There have been times where I came across some pretty good gear while taking the scenic route to different places. Just wondering what everyone else thinks is best? Are the random encounters worth the extra time to walk around? Just curious...

ESO developer Zenimax Online, has once again released an informative video, this time detailing character progression. Lead gameplay designer Nick Konkle provide's commentary, describing how the system is arranged in a very traditional TES manner where leveling up through questing or finding skyshards awards 2 points, one to spend on a pool of resources (Health, Magicka, Stamina) called atribute points, and a skill point, which is how a player can further define a character by picking how their skills evolve over the course of the game.

Most of you don't know me. By this name anyway.

I am sure you can put two and two together. He writes every day and usually gives me his work to critique, and so, I thought, why not help everybody with it?

The following map was posted by Lady Nerevar of The Imperial Library on her tumblr. It shows roughly the continents of Nirn scaled to those of Earth. Lots of surprising things in this revelation. The size of Akavir, the existence of Lyg (A realm said to be a parallel version of Tamriel, where Mehrunes Dagon was created as mentioned in Mythic Dawn Commentaries 4) and how big Yokuda once was.
See the tumblr site for further notes. Any trolling/comments about how this isn't "canon" etc. adds nothing to the discussion and will be removed.

So I just started my third character in Skyrim; not fully by choice... First one's save file got corrupted, so had to delete. Second one was too bugged, quests could not be completed and certain game points would not trigger, so I couldnt progress. Hopefully more luck with this playthrough... Might post fun adventures she has during her travels!
Her name is Andra, and shes a Breton. Playing more as a theif/assassin archetype. Not 100% sure what choices she will make as she goes through Skyrim, but I am sure she will be awesome nonetheless!

Dave: Ready to kick your @$$ on this.
Madman97: And just like that, folks, we are jumping into the point of this blog. Allow me to divulge, me and Dave are obviously pumped for the Elder Scrolls Online which is coming out next year, and we are so far liking everything we are hearing about it.

I've always thought that the Elder Scrolls lore was contradictory. I was later proven wrong through much devotion. I drew to a conclusion...
If it wasn't for Mehrunes Dagon, the Aldmeri Dominion wouldn't have been pissed at the Empire for failing them, and wouldn't have started the Great War, and the White-Gold concordat wouldn't have been signed, and that wouldn't have caused the formation of the Stormcloak rebellion, and that wouldn't bring about the return of Alduin. So in a sense, Mehrunes was a part of the prophecy?
Please do correct me if I'm wrong, did the Elder Scrolls foretell Dagon's invasion? Was it one of the signs? MortalGeek (talk) 03:49, November 30, 2013 (UTC)Read more >
This is, as you can see, a blog on the Cult of Order.
So, the Cult of Order is very opportunistic. For one, you get a free set of armor and a sword on joining! Also, Jyggalag ( Our Lord ) is very active, and cares very much for his followers. Cheese is allowed. To join you must pass a test, but it should be easy for those who want to join and be devote followers. As a plus, you become a Daedra so that you are semi-immortal!

Just call me by my user name, A-91. After a long think and reading several Wiki's on the Wikia, I thought it would be time I would do my share in any edits I can think of.
Mostly, I'll read around Wikia's for The Elder Scrolls, several fighting games (mainly Mortal Kombat, Soul, Tekken and Smash Bros), several anime/manga, and Nintendo (as well as several of it's franchises like Mario, Zelda, Star Fox). But there may be some others I'll read about (just not in too big amounts).
My favorite game consoles are the Nintendo 64 and the GameCube (though SNES will always have a place in my heart due to it being my first game console with Mario World, Donkey Kong Country and Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage).

I was going to do the Battle for Bruma quest (I don't think thats the actual name, but bear with me here) anyway, the one with Oblivion gates opening up everywhere. If your high level, (Like me) the game makes sure to send the about 500 of the strongest enemies in the game on an assination mission. Who's the target, you ask? Isn't it Obvious? Myself and Martin.

Hey guys, thought I would share a discovery I have made during my reading of the in game books, but first a little back story.
For those who dont know, in every single main Elder Scrolls game there is a specific hero which has to save the world in some fasion.
- In it was the Eternal Champion.
- In it was the Hero of Daggerfall
- In it was the Nerevarine.
- In it was the Hero of Kvatch.
- And in it is the Dragonborn.
So in my research I was conducting to find something blog worthy, I found this book, The Hope Of The Redoran. In this book there is a reference to a cirtain Dro'Jizad of Elsweyr and what it says is:
One of the few magical arts the Psijics of Arteum have kept to themselves, away from the common spells and schools of the Mages Guild, is the …Read more >

So recently i've learned how to make polls (thanks to Draevan13) and in this sunday i had nothing better to do so here is a poll to answer a question i've had ever since my character hit lvl 100 in Smithing.

The reason for this is because i think it looks better, and it fits better with the whole "Born to Kill Dragons" part of the Dovahkiin (get it, hahahah, because Dovahkiin literally means "born to kill dragons" in the dragons' tongue, hahaha, ok sorry for the pun, i'll get back on track now) .

Hey TES Wiki. I know I usually write blogs pertaining to the Elder Scrolls lore, theories, and whatnot. But something sad recently happened. On 13 November 2013 (Not entirely sure how accurate that date is) theBEARDEDcanuck's channel closed on YouTube. And I felt it only necessary I give him a shout out on here.
TheBEARDEDcanuck was a YouTube user who used to advocated on behalf of the Stormcloaks. He was one of my main insiprations to become a Stormcloak supporter, and most of my arguments steam from what he said. He was a really smart guy, who knew his lore. He tought me a lot about Skyrim and helped me appricate all the Civil War had to offer. If he was on this Wiki, I gurentee he would be a better campaigner for the Stormcloaks then me…

Design is everything in a fantasy game. You want to wow your audience with the visual style, make it appealing, make it awesome. Design should be seen everywhere, down to the scratches in a wooden post on a doorstep. And Skyrim hasa very lovely design. I love the old Nordic aesthetic and their own style of opulence.

- You need to eat three meals a day, and eat realistically. Ex: Soup, cheese, bread, wine.
- You need to change your clothes once everyday, and have some sort of sleeping outfit.
- You need to sleep at night, and be active during the day.
- Earn an honest living. Farming, smithing, chopping wood, fishing, hunting, etc. (All the PC players can find a fishing mod by ThirteenOranges, or someone else.)
- You can't join factions, clear out forts, do the main quest, or be any type of mercenary/sellsword.

There is a problem I've found with many of the articles on TESWiki. When an article refers to "the Dragonborn" multiple times in the same sentence, it makes sense to use a pronoun rather than to constantly repeat "the Dragonborn". However, which pronoun should be used? "He?" "She?" The Dragonborn may be either male or female. Since the only neuter pronoun in English is "it," and that pronoun should never be used when referring to a person, then what do you do?
I found the first half of the first page of this document to do a good job of enumerating the issues: http://www.valueplaza.com/English/Pronouns.pdf. I think the suggestions need some work.
The strictly correct English usage is to say, "He or she." Here is an example: "When the Dragonb…Read more >
Yesterday I was looking over the conjuration spells for Oblivion, and I realized that there isn't a spell to summon a dread zombie. Most undead and daedra you can summon, and you can summon progressivley superior forms of each undead/daedra as you level up. For example, skeletons have 4 main types, which can be summoned (Skeleton; novice level, skeleton guardian; journeyman level, skeleton hero; expert level, and skeleton champion; which is also expert level but costs more magicka and doesn't stay as long as a skeleton hero.) Atronachs have 3 types, each more powerful than the one before, however they use different elements (Flame atronach; journeyman, frost atronach; expert, storm atronach; master.)

So we saw in Skyrim that the glorious Septim Empire from the previous games fell to pieces and the races of Tamriel went their seperate ways. Imperials, Nords and Bretons are the Mede Empire, Dunmer are ruling themselves in Morrowind as they did of old, the Altmer and Bosmer are the Third Dominion and annexed/incorporated the Khajiit, the Redguards are off on their own in Hammerfell and the Argonians are now the Kingdom of Black Marsh. Now, a simple question, TES-wikians: what do you think is best for Tamriel? Each seperate race ruling over their own province, like what the Stormcloaks seem to be hinting at, or each race united in a single nation, like what Tiber Septim wanted? I'm curious.

I've played through TESV quite a few times, and even so, I still can't find a side in the civil war that I fully agree with. Here's my opinions on both sides:
The Empire is all well and good, but this isn't our beloved Septim Empire anymore. Granted, they aren't bad, but to me they just lack... well, a backbone. When the Thalmor were taking Elsweyr, the Empire was nowhere to be seen, they just left the Khajiit to their own devices. During the Great War, they actually /lost/ the Imperial City. Granted, there were exogent circumstances beyond their control, I know this, but how in the bloody hell do you actually allow your capitol to fall? They managed to take it back, and that was no mean feat, but directly after they just up and …Read more >
Sometimes I wonder: How does a person get Skyrim and Oblivion confused!?

I honestly have very few complaints with Oblivion, even now. I know some games today that have MUCH worse graphics than Oblivion, and the plot for Oblivion was far more gripping and epic than Skyrim's plot was.

So I haven't written a blog in a while and thought this would be a good time to bring something up that I've been hearing/seeing recently. It would appear as though the major focus of Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) in the endgame phases will be PvP (Player vs Player). This might sound like a cool thing to some of you, but for people like me it strikes another blow to the confidence in the game.
Now I liked the idea that PvP was going to be separated from he PvE content, and that it'd have its own set of rules to follow. That essentially makes it a game of its own, while keeping balance to both PvE and PvP. However, some of the recent rumors coming out of the beta events are making it seem like, beyond a handful of dungeons and the occasiona…Read more >
