Hello everyone, it's about time this is announced. I am going on Hiatus, this might last until tomorrow, a week, maybe a couple years, or longer, but I do think a blog about it would be acceptable.
So I first really started looking at this place for information in mid 2012. Usually regarding Skyrim, from the articles here, I learned about characters, lore, etc. I loved it, it made me start to really appriciate the series and inspired me to want to play more of it. As an anon user here, I made a couple minors changes to pages, and I didn't really know a ton about editing Wikis. Here and UESP became the places I searched for my info for TES on, and it was cool! But than I noticed they had a blog community here, one where the Civil War got di…

Alduin was dead. Tsun and I saw to that ourselves. He taught me the Thu'um to go back to Tamriel and I used it.
The next thing I knew, I was back home in Whiterun, but I wasn't done with my quest. Skyrim had a civil war to win, the Stormcloaks were counting on me. Winterhold has a college that I need to get back to. Lydia wants children. Not until I get Hearthfire. And a black warrior stood at the Town Gate, but every time I get a good glimpse of him, he's gone. A whisper carries a sound on the wind, always hissing "Eighty, Boy. Eighty.".
Walking into my home, I recognized two things: One was that Lydia was not there. Another was that the Dwarven sword I mounted on the wall was also gone.
"Damn it," I said to myself, and went out the way I ca…Read more >
It all started when I went to the portal to Sovngarde. A being flew above my head, carrying a staff and sporting a mysterious mask. He shot fireballs at a rapid pace, and was hard to kill. Getting through him would be my only way to Sovngarde to kill Alduin.
But I wasn't thinking about Alduin while I was fighting the being. I wanted its mask.
After a deadly battle, I seized its mask and staff, and portalled into Sovngarde. Through the space-time continuum, I inspected the ornament. It was grey, with stylish etchings, but it was impossible to see through. What kind of person could have worn this? I put it on and could surprisingly see in it. Not only that, but a relaxing feeling worked itself through my veins. This could only be magical, I tho…Read more >
Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know that I recently completed a Let's Play series in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The LP itself focuses on the story of Rex, a poor Argonian living in the Windhelm docks, who is forced out of his home and into the most treacherous parts of Skyrim on a mission to deliver a book to Solitude. Along the way, he'll hone his survival skills, discover the meaning of friendship, and learn what it means to be a true hero.
Be sure to out the playlist of background music I made for the series here. Click on each image below to go to each part of the story.Read more >
I am too proud to just fade away, so I'm posting this explanation as to why I'm done RPing.
Firstly, I do not quite have the time to invest in this anymore. Real life has caught up to me, and is giving me a good beating for evading it for so long. I have too much to do, and nothing close to enough time to do it.
Rping just isn’t fun for me anymore. It used to be a great way to relieve stress and make friends, but now it honestly just bores and annoys me. There are a myriad of reasons why, and I will try to list all of them.
no one really interacted with my characters. While I am definitely to blame in part for this, there seemed to be a general disinterest in my characters and the stories I created for them, and made RPing seem rather lonely …
Pretty much the title.Read more >

So in ESO we finally got to visit Black Marsh, and finally learned what the Argonians are like, more about their physiology, culture and beliefs. I decided to make this post to compile what we've learned so far. I'll probably forget a few things so I'll update this post if I do.
When an Argonian dies, their soul travels into the Hist trees, thus they pass on their memories to each new generation. However, it was shown that the memories can be lost in the "river's current", the passage of time, but if the knowledge is vital it will be recovered by the Hist. This is shown when the Hissmir Hist shows the inhabitants how to use Hist Amber to power the city's defenses against a Dominion attack. What is not explained is what happens if an Argonia…

Hello one and all, I am UAM, a moderator on the forum and chat of the Elder Scrolls Wiki. As the title suggests, I am retiring, and this blog will desribe the reasoning behind it, whether or not I'll return, and I'll reflect on my time with the wiki.
Good question little Jimmy, the main reason is due to my lack of interest in the wiki and the Elder Scrolls series in general at the moment. By lack of interest, I mean that I simply don't care for editing wikis any more, please keep in mind that I never had any intention of editing the wiki long-term from the very start of my wiki career, therefore it's astounding I've stayed around for as long as I have. Understand that my opinion of editing wikis doesn't reflect the quality of this wiki or t…

So for the last two+ weeks I have been working on the Skyrim:Hearthfire, Homestead pages. I did this both for myself as well for the greatness of the wikia as a whole. My end goal for this is to make a supreme grand total of what is needed in order to make all three homesteads with all the different wings and accessories. So the first thing I will do in this blog is make a grand total for all the wings and then combine all the grand totals to get a supreme grand total. So for now this blog is under construction.

So, must of you I assume have heard of Michael Kirkbride's newest Lore Concept C0DA. Which some have criticized. but I think it's actually a very interesting concept, and kind of actually works with his other lore. I also feel it answers some big questions people have been wondering for a while regarding TES & lore
First of all, the concept C0DA kind of shows the answer to the Godhead question. That the Player is the Godhead, and the game is there universe, think about it. They control how their character is, what happens in the game, and now how lore and events can work in the said verse. This is exactly how the Godhead is described, and the concept CHIM, would be knowing you are in a game, being controlled by some random person, that woul…Read more >
Zenimax Online Studios has announced the Six-Month Loyalty Reward, the Dwemer Sphere vanity pet, and it will soon be delivered via in-game mails to players who have subscribed for six months. This is the second Loyalty Reward for ESO players and the first one was the High Hrothgar Wraith for three-month subscribers in September. Read more here.
And staff confirmed in the official forum that they are working on making some improvements so that pets won't take up inventory spaces.
What's more, the Mudcrab Plush, which comes with a code of an in-game Rufous Mudcrab vanity pet, is for pre-sale in the Bethesda Merchandise Store and will be shipped on November 21st.Read more >
Yeah, I'm back.
Following my block and lengthily reflection on past actions, I realize now that my behavior was below immature, arrogant and petulant. I refuted everyone's opinion, insulted whoever I pleased and thought I was above and beyond anyone else's grasp. Let it be known that I shan't commit to such vicious performances any further. As many may witness simply by contemplating my talk page and history of edits, hypocrisy fell upon me as dirt falls upon a carpet whenever I called out another user's immaturity and/or stupidity, whereas I behaved in a much similar manner.
I also offer personal apologies to GarouxBloodline, whom I branded "irrelevant" and "self-obsessed", EbonySkyrim, my demise whom I've indirectly called "spineless" and "l…Read more >

Okay I am so pissed about this bug. I waited, reloaded, broke into her house shes not there. It keeps directing me back to her AT A GIANTS CAMP near Whiterun. I tried the "moveto player" command didn't work, somehow it only works with Lydia for that type of comand. When I did that console command on Olava it just said script not found and shit it's seriously annoying. Can anybody help me with this?
I can't share a pic for some reason for a better understanding might be the net being unstable and such.Read more >
After looking through articles on the different games and their histories, as well as playing them all, I think it's clear that the individual games can be grouped into two categories; The Elder Scrolls: Arena, The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall, and The Elder Scrolls Adventures: Redguard all can be grouped together by the years they were made and the size of the fanbase at the time. As I understand it, during these times, the Elder Scrolls was only semi-popular, really only having a cult following, and it seems that the creators had generally the same mentality, with only a light and relatively basic lore behind it and some features that could be considered "cutting corners".
However, few would argue against the fact that The Elder Scrolls I…Read more >
1) I only have to attack a few forts and one city while the Stormcloaks have to attack many cities.
2) I like the Legion's armor better. The Stormcloak armor doesn't look any different than a city guards armor. Thus destroys the Stormcloaks will not confuse me anymore.
3) The Jarl of Whiterun sides with the Legion.
4) I destroyed the Dark Brotherhood because I hate the Dark Brotherhood and the Imperials do too.
5) It fits very well with my story. I'm an Altmer and I join the Imperial Legion but I crush the Thalmor. Just like the story when the main bad guy's optimistic assistant turns against him.
6) I covet Jarl Ulfric Stormcloaks clothes. And the only to get them is to join the Legion and defeat the rebels.Read more >
So yesterday I got thinking about Hamvir's Rest in general and all the things about it. So I searched the internet and found some things to tell you guys. So here are some Hamvir's Rest facts theory's and more.
1. If you read my first article then you will already know this, Hamvir's Rest is most likely the final resting place of Hamvir a Nord barbarian from The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind.
2. The headless horsemen may be Hamvir riding to his final resting place.
3. Another interesting thing to think about the Drauger in the casket at the end of the rest could also be Hamvir (though this is just my theory).
4. A random item will spawn next to the skull and if it is taken another random item will spawn when the enemy's respawn.
5. A glitch can o…Read more >
Hello everyone and happy halloween this is my first blog on this sight and today is easter egg Saturday!!! I will post every Saturday and Sunday.

The headless horsemen easter egg is a easter egg that is very rare to find. You can find him riding out at night if you follow him he will lead you to Hamvir's Rest.

As reported by Polygon, Bethesda, the developers of the Elder Scrolls games, have announced they will have a partnership with Titan Books to make real physical books based on lore from The Elder Scrolls Online and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
They are planned to come out on March 2015, and contain "specially commissioned, never-before-seen pieces of art" framed by "in-game lore".

Hello. Many of you may remember me. Stendarr God of Justice & Mercy. I had been perma-banned a couple months back. I would like to request permission to re-enter Chat--as the title pretty much says. My archnemesis is, apparently, long gone, now. That gives me a HUGE opportunity to prove that I am much better than before. I've taken time to be with my friends irl. They helped me grow. I'm much more calmed, now. I am much more laxed. I am more mature, now.
I would like only the Admins and people who actually frequent the Chat(whether new or old) to Vote.
Thank you all for taking the time to read this and vote on this. Whatever your guys' majority vote, I shall respect it.Read more >
Now I want to start of saying i'm not sure if this would work as a mod but whatever.
So the basic idea is pretty much 'Dragonborn time hops or whatever to a modern version of Skyrim.'
Ok, sound cool? Stupid? I ask that you hold of on making an opinion until I explain more. I'll be honest here though, there's still a lot of things I haven't thought out yet.
So the whole thing would start with the Dragonborn reciveing a leter from like I dunno some mage guy or something. Why are you involved? You're the Dragonborn it's like in your job description to get involved in everything. So anyway he wants you to meet him somewhere (figured it'd be his house or a new dungeon that he claims has odd magical...something). You show up and see him looking ove…

So there's a lot of talk and speculation going around that TES VI is going to take place in Argonia (Black Marsh) the homeland of the Argonians. Now honestly, I'm not sure how true this is but I do have some opinions on it.
So, I do think some awesome things could come out of a TES VI located in Argonia, one such is learning more about Sithis, the Dark Brotherhood, and Argonian lore! Most of these things have barely been touched upon in other TES games, as they were more focused on the Man races mostly and the lore involving them, occasionally discussing the Mer ones. But Argonians and their culture have gotten little lore put into them, that we know. With a game in their very land, the amounts us Lore Fans could learn would be through …Read more >

I've playing a lot of Skyrim lately, since that's the only game I have that's worth playing. So as of late, I'm trying to find a best fitting character to fit a pairing for a story I'm making on fanfiction and not only that of course, for my gaming experience as well, marriageable if possible for my character, if not then that'll be just in the fanfiction then. I might go with my character being an Argonian or a Khajit this time around since my first character is a female Nord werewolf whose married to Aela. I don't want to marry Aela anymore since I already married her with my first character, so can anyone give me a suggestion who seems fitting? The only known guard that I know and that could fit my story is the Legate but I don't really…Read more >
Hello, lore-novice/loremasters. This blog is dedicated to the idea of Anu and Padomay, having a third counterpart. This counterpart has been in our faces for so long-The Numidium.
Anu is the aspect of the dreamer, the godhead, and order. His shards and sphere are very critical, and represent a greater good. Most of the mortals with his aspects or concepts are hailed as heroes.
Padomay is the aspect of the dream, the nightmare, and chaos. His shards and sphere are very random, and represent the unbalance of the universe. Most of the mortals with his aspects or concepts are hailed as villains.
Then, we have the one and one Numidium. (Well, one of two.)
Numidium shows a display of some high-rooted power, as he is able to erase entire races from e…Read more >
So, as many of you know I am a huge supporter of the Stormcloak rebellion. However, I think it should be noted not everything the Stormcloaks do are right. And, I want to get rid of this notion Imperials seem to have, that I think the Stormcloaks are the best.
The Stormcloaks and Nords have issues with Alcohol and other intoxicating drinks
This is true, the Nords have always been big on having good ale before a battle. The Stormcloaks would likely be no exception, and Alcohol does not really do good things for soldiers who are supposed to follow orders and whatnot. This could mean, leading charges, protecting towns, and all that would be much more difficult if a huge amount of the soldiers simply drink constantly. It also might mean the sold…Read more >

So if I were trying to fit TES lore into it's best real world setting, we have to establish two things:
1. Tamriel is largely Indo-European in nature, seemingly encompassing the Alexandian/Roman Empires, although displays multiple anachronisms of different factions existing factions that were not chronologically contiguous.
2. There are hints of multiple cultures blended into each TES race, sometimes anachronistically. The Elder Scrolls is a fantasy series, after all. This means that no one cultural label will completely fit. That's how it should be.
With those settled, I surmised the following, attempting to keep each race at least somewhat centred in the Alexandrian/Roman Empires.
Men = European:
A. Imperials = Roman. This is easy to fit as t…Read more >

Alright so I'm not much of a blogger, & have only made one other blog besides this which was deleted lol. However, I have just hit the 10k edit mark on the wiki & I feel that I should look back on what I have done to reach this point so here goes.

I was nominated by Sky Above,Voice Within a month later & became a patroller for the first time in March, & ended up resigning and going on hiatus for several months in early April. I later returned in mid July to become a member of the community once more.

I'm not the one that usually create blogs. Besides the one for ESO a while ago, it's been some time since my last. But as our fellow Timeoin said to me here I need to do this as he did here. So here goes:
Some days ago I hit the 40.000 k mark, this you can say is a milestone, although I don't keep track of those on my profile. It's hard to believe I have done so much on this wiki since I joined in the last day of January 2012. It was a slow start as I had just discovered the Elder Scrolls series with Skyrim when it was released at the end of 2011. I came to this wiki to get help as I was not used to this type of gameplay, and haven't left since.
