Its that time again, folks.
As has been tradition, every 10,000 edits I write a blog post.
So, here's 90,000th edit.
With it, I'd like to request that everyone help out with the Morrowind Project, so we can get information about the ESO Chapter up as quickly as possible.
That's about it, really.
Happy editing, everyone!

Just a quick note to say that the NDA is now lifted for
If you were in the beta, or you have early access, we request your help on getting as much content on Morrowind up on the wiki as quickly as possible - be it quest names, character names, locations, whatever - every little bit helps.
Thank you in advance.

Jarl Elisif the Fair or Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak who is more fit to rule Skyrim?
Elisif the Fair is the Jarl of Haafingar and the widow of High King Torygg, the last elected High King of Skyrim prior to the Stormcloak Rebellion. While Elisif is the head of court at her palace in Solitude, the majority of her courtly duties are handled by her steward, Falk Firebeard. Bolgeir Bearclaw serves as her Housecarl, while Bryling and Erikur serve as her Thanes. It was after Torygg's death, at the hand of Ulfric Stormcloak, that Elisif became the Jarl of Solitude, and following her assumption to power in Solitude, Elisif would work in close cooperation with the Third Empire against Ulfric Stormcloak and the Stormcloak Rebellion. The true reasons for El…

One of Skyrim's mystery. Narfi is a beggar who lives in the ruins of his family home in Ivarstead. He's insane and rumble about his missing sister, the same you can find by doing your own investigation - Well, her skeleton. Interesting thing, Narfi is a quest giver since he's the one asking for the investigation (The Straw that Broke) but also the target if you're a member of the Dark Brotherhood (Contract: Kill Narfi). Sounds unusual? What happened to her and why is Narfi a potential kill for the DB? I've listed some theories, facts and thoughts.
City guards, bandits or hunters?
If you did the quest you know that Reyda is underwater, near the bridge. All that's left of her body is her skeleton and some loot : her necklace (let's keep that o…

Sometimes things happen while playing Skyrim that makes me wanna say what the hell.Or did that really just happen? Here are some of those incidents.A while back I was playing as a female dunmer when I came across a tower full of forsworn.I manage to kill them all and come across a dungeon like room.In a cage is a hagraven.I decidewhat the hell and I release her.Of course I have my sword ready if she decides to fightback instead of running away like a spriggan I had recently released from necromances.To my shock she engages conversation with me.She explains that her traitor sister lockedherup here,and this was her tower once.She then makes a deal with me,if I help herkill the traitor sister,shewillreward me.So I follow her to a room and he…Read more >
For a Paladin Build, you will have to choose either an Imperial Race or a High Elf. You can also choose Nords and Redguards. The other races are not suitable for this build. You will have to start your paladin character at level 20-25 with Master/Legendary difficulty. You should wear Dwarven Armor Chest piece, gauntlets and boots. The Chest piece should have the increase health enchantment, the boot should have the increase stamina/increase carry-weight enchantment. The gauntlets should have increase one-handed enchantment. You should wear an amulet with increase magicka enchantment and a ring with fortify restoration enchantment. You should wield the Dawnbreaker (or any other one-handed weapon. But this is ideal) and the Spellbreaker (or …Read more >
Greetings! Julia from Fandom's German office here.
The Elder Scrolls Universe is constantly growing and attracts more and more players, on- and offline. That is why we think it is a great idea to ad custom-made videos to key "gateway" pages.
If we do this right, these will draw the viewer in, providing either a concise visual summary of the page in video form, or drilling into a particular facet of the given character, game or game element.
We would like to ask the community to help us prepare a short video script draft for The Dark Brotherhood. Our video team will produce a great video from this script using clips or stills for illustration. I talked to Atvelonis about this idea yet and I am sure this can be an interesting test.
So here's the…

Update: the NDA is now lifted, as the early access servers have been opened to PC/Mac players.
As of today, April 17th, 2017, ZeniMax has officially begun the closed beta for The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind. If you were invited, you should have received an email from ZeniMax and an invitation to a private forum to report bugs encountered in the upcoming expansion.

In exciting news, today Bethesda have officially announced a new elder scrolls game is in the works.
Little is known at this time, however, once more comes to light, we will update you.
Here's what we know so far:
First of all, this game will be released EXCLUSIVELY on the Oculus Rift. The reason for this is that Bethesda's owners, Zenimax, have a wonderful relationship with this company. (As an example, see this article from Polygon.
Secondly, we know that Bethesda are going back to their roots somewhat. Their best game in the series to date is Morrowind, so they are going to feature animations from this game. To this end, They excitedly confirmed earlier today, they will be hiring renowned animator Lapri Lofos, (Who I have written about prev…Read more >

Each Elder Scrolls game involves a Hero. The ones that charge (or sneak) in and save the world or a select corner of it from whatever menace is threatening it in that particular game. But their roles are a bit more pivotal than just doing that. They are typically not just saving the world, but also making a choice to do so. Add to this the notion that the Hero always starts each game as a Prisoner, and you have some interesting implications.
When Lorkhan planned to create Mundus, it's possible that he did so to force limitations on the spirits of the world so that they can transcend them. Someone who has never known limit, like the unbound et'ada, cannot overcome them, and therefore cannot transcend their current state. This is the heart of…

Hi, this is just a list of lore locations that don't have pages. To look for information on these locations, check the references or go to The Imperial Library website and search them by name. This can be useful for anyone who wants to add to the wiki but doesn't know where to start. I hope this helps, and happy editing. --Vincentius1 (talk)
PS, for the locations in the Novels, you're gonna have to get the book if you want to get more incite on these locations.

I was an idiot when i first played Skyrim. I saw the High Elf and the description and though "ooh magic sounds fun". i used the stupidest idea for a character, a sneaking, heavy armored, spellsword, assassin, thief, High Elf. i went to riverwood and did the first thing everybody does in skyrim, i killed a chicken. i didnt realize my last save was exiting that cave in helgen. i went back to riverwood, and i accidentally stole something from alvor, when i was trying to hold it. i didnt fight, i didnt reload i held a iron dagger in the air and ran away. I put down the controller and never played till 2 years later, 2013 when i saw it at wal-mart and thought "hey didn't i play that at my cousins? maybe i should get it" nedless to say i got it,…Read more >
I almost have platinum on the Skyrim: Special Edition for PS4. One of the remaining trophies is for returning the Thieves Guild to its former glory. Problem. I can't do the Bedlam jobs for Delvin. Every single one no matter if it is Raven Rock, Solitude, or Windhelm, still glitches. I have gotten over 1,500 worth of gold in Raven Rock. 1,000 worth in Solitude. 600 worth in Windhelm. I just can't get these Bedlam jobs. Does someone know how to fix this glitch?
Update: Quit Windhelm Bedlam Job and did a Numbers Job. Completed that and came back and asked for a Bedlam Job. Took it and it was Windhelm again. This time it worked.Read more >
I noticed an interesting set of similarities in Skyrim that I call "The Strange Triangle".
Several Elder Scrolls games have Easter eggs or other references to famous fantasy or sci-fi books, films or series. The Star Trek saga is also a common reference point, with a number of quests in Oblivion named in a way very similar to episode titles (e.g., "Where Silence Has Lease" vs. "Where Spirits Have Lease"). So let's include Star Trek into the triangle!
Altmer in the Elder Scrolls are quite different from the High Elves of J. R. R. Tolkien. They are tall, thin and have pointy ears – but that is roughly where the similarities end. Rather than singing and enjoying their long lives, they scheme and plot in Tamriel, using diplomacy and secret agent…Read more >

Hello everyone, I just wanted to inform you guys that we remember how many information reguarding the Dark Brotherhood DLC for The Elder Scrolls: Online was missing.

UPDATE: The new chapter is The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, and takes place on Vvardenfell. Read the blog post here.
Today (Jan 29) the official Elder Scrolls Online Twitter and Facebook accounts have posted some short teaser videos. These videos depict a black mass, likely volcanic rock, with audio of rumbling and blowing winds. In the first video, it is merely the rock structure with a few embers appearing from within it. In the second video, the rock structure has opened a bit further, with more of its orange contents visible, and a date for a Twitch stream (January 31st, 11:00 AM PST / 2:00 PM EST) overlayed on top. A third video, posted on January 30th, has the same audio and footage, but more parts of the crack are filled with lava, and…Read more >
What's up Tamriel?! Jacob here with my new blog page "The Life of a Mage." First and foremost... I have no idea what a blog is, but I'm going to assume it's similar to a vlog, which is something I do often. Alrighty then, let's get past this lame intro and start with my actual blog.
Everyone in Tamriel seems to despise the mages, but for those of us on Earth, connected to Tamriel by magical portals called, "Gaming Systems," they are really cool.
So, for any player looking to become a mage in Skyrim, they may want to consider the best race options for the task. Here are the best ones:

Hello, everyone. I'm Scout Trooper 164, and I'm a contributor to this wiki. I'm mostly here to apologize for my lack of edits to this wiki, and also for my 2 year absence. The following reasons explain why.
1. During the Canon ending of the war discussion, I felt like I was being crushed because I believed that the Storm cloaks would win in the war, and some folks just acted rude to me, even though I tried to just say my opinion.
2. I really don't know how I can continue contributing here on this wiki. I only know knowledge of Skyrim and Oblivion, and that's pretty much where it ends. I have no intention of purchasing Online because it was a mess when it first came out, and I really don't think Online would fit in the Elder Scrolls universe. …Read more >
Some thoughts I had a while back on /r/teslore about Anu, Padomay, Magnus and the Thalmor. Hopefully processed into something useful, but I still feel like there's more to this ball of wool...
Traditionally in TES lore, “Anuic” and “Padomaic” are terms associated with change and stasis respectively. It is assumed that the “Anuic” forces are those for the status quo, for keeping things as they are. However, if we look at the behaviour of Anu himself in the events of the Anuad, we see that it is not a static attitude, but an explicitly backward-looking, regressive thing, which is not the absence of change, but change oriented to make things as they were.</p>
Anu’s actions in the Anuad are entirely based on his love of Nir . He fights Padomay …Read more >
At Nintendo's event unveiling their new console, Todd Howard, director and executive producer at Bethesda Game Studios, officially announced the Nintendo Switch port of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The day after, Nintendo revealed it will be available this fall.
The Switch is Nintendo's upcoming gaming tablet, effectively filling the role of both console and handheld. This means The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim will be the first game of the main series to make it to a portable platform in its full glory, outside of The Elder Scrolls Travels series. The Nintendo Switch will launch on March 3rd.

A repost of something I put up on /r/teslore a few months ago. Let me know if you have any thoughts!
The Nordic pantheon begins, and ends, with death. And both of these are the same thing: a dragon.
This is quite different from most human religions and their attitude to the dragon god; Alduin is not a protector like Akatosh, as Thromgar Iron-Head eloquently points out, he is a destroyer. But he is also the 'wellspring' of the Nordic pantheon, according to Varieties of Faith. How are these two attitudes reconciled? I think the answer is to be found in the Dragon Cult and its impact on the Nords' society.
The Skyrim dragon cult was allegedly very different to the Atmoran dragon cult, of which Ysgramor was a part. I believe that it was only when…

- We all do and think things that we don't want to tell other about in Skyrim, but eventully, we do Skyrim Confessions. Believe me, some of the stuff people do are weird and funny. Here's my Skyrim Confession list.
- When I first saw a Dark Elf, it looked like they had Blue Skin, so I immideatly went: "OH MY GOD THEY LOOK LIKE GRAND ADMERIAL THRAWN!" because I am a huge Star Wars Nerd. (Grand Admerial Thrawn was the main antagonish in the Star Wars Book Heir to the Empire by Timmothy Zain, and the two books after it)
- I like to imagine Khajiit's as children, because we never see any Khajiit children, and since Khajiit's look like cats, its funny to imagine Khajiit's when they where kids, because they where all once a kitten.
- I love to think what Had…
This is a repost of a post I made a while back on /r/teslore.
IceFireWarden's fantastic piece on the Prolix Tower got me thinking about how the Walking Ways interact with what we understand of as religious faith. It is still there in Tamriel, just a little different from what it is on Earth.
Proof Denies Faith
While many of the gods in Tamriel have priests, the interaction that mortals have with their gods (whether Aedra or Daedra) is on quite a different level to what it is for Earth religions. Because the existence of the Daedra is obvious, and the existence of the Aedra can be strongly inferred, there is little room for the kind of faith that is "being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see." (Hebrews 11:1). Even l…Read more >
One of the things that I really wanted to get from this Wiki is the ability to look at a list of characters to find what I'm looking for. When it comes to Followers, this doesn't exist, so I thought I'd make a page to give me said list.
- Behold! List of Followers (Skyrim)
This page lists all Followers in a single table that can be sorted based on what the player is looking for. That is, we can sort all followers based on Race, Class, Level Cap, who we can Marry, can they be a Steward, etc.
For people that like to play thieves and assassins, it can be particularly helpful to know which followers they can use without fuss. But I'm a bit stumped as to how to go about it.

I was given the Remastered Skyrim for the PS4 by a mate for Christmas, and I thought I'd document my thoughts/observations here.
The first thing that leaps out is of course, the graphics. Soooooooooo purty! Foliage appears to be less flat and more three-dimensional, the whole colour pallet is more vibrant (perhaps they took a page out of The Last of Us' book?), but it's the clouds that stand out the most to me - so realistic and just gorgeous.
There are moments when I pause during gameplay to admire the work that's gone into it.
Brilliant for those that like to play with multiple characters. Now all the saves that are relevant for each character can be bundled together. Yay.
This is a new feature where upon it's the top of the menu and it will…

Or... How playing a racist Stormcloak changed my perception of certain characters and quests.
Whenever I've tried to play a character that sides with the Stormcloaks, I keep failing to connect with their quest on account of their, "Skyrim is for Nords" policy/attitude. I mean, it's really hard for an Orc to side with a group of people that are basically saying, "you don't belong here and we wish you'd leave". So I thought I'd try playing a Nord, so that I could have her join the Stormcloaks without any pesky complications regarding racial vilification.
I like using Blogs to keep track of what my characters have done and are yet to do. I'm not sure it's incredibly interesting for anyone else, but it helps my gameplay. This time, however, I wan…Read more >

We know the stories of the creation of the ES universe. Magnus Desingned Mundus, and is probably the most knowlegable Aedra. As far as I know, the details of Lorkans betrayel have never been specified. His trick couldn't have been in the design, Since Magnus would certainley be very protective of his work. I suggest that there was a sufficent energy source to make a mundus, albeit shallow. I'll explain that now. I think that Mundus was made for entertainment, and Lorkan wasn't satisfied with it. Imagine if none of the characters in Star Wars had emotion. I think that's close to what he saw. He thought of a way to give it the spark it needed. An event was set up, a celebration. While the Aedra were off guard, he activated someething that dr…Read more >
