I have been hindered in writing blogs lately, and there are several reasons for this. The first is that my usual gig involves writing Theory Blogs or Spoof Blogs bashing a game for entertainment purposes, and with the absence of a present Elder Scrolls game for consoles until ESO comes out in the summertime, there has been a scarcity of content to write about. The second reason is that more recently, I have taken to writing "Political" Blogs, addressing concerns I had with the website and the community. But, besides some conflict coming from disagreements between users on the Consensus Track, there hasn't been much to analyze and dissect. This...draught of events you might call it has left me starved and without a creative spark.

I have a question for anyone who will listen. I am an argonian supremicist, and a good friend of mine love to play as a wood elf. We both pre-ordered the imperial edition for xbox one and very few others we know are looking to play the game. We are both relatively adamant about playing in our race's alliance. Is it possible for us to play PvE and explore tamriel without switching alliances?Read more >
Dear friends. Yes, the entire two I have on here (and Artimis, but she's hardly ever on) Hbxn, and Khajiiti Nerd. It appears Ralvz'jeshka has been locked out of Whiterun, and can no longer interact with you. You can communicate by responding here, or, give your attempts at using an IRC. I currently use Furrychat, and reside in #ThePark. In any case, Ralvz'jeshka will be off having adventures and ploting reven~ I mean, searching for return gifts.

I find it looks the same, but everything has changed. I find remembering gets harder every day. Sometimes, I still believe who I pretend to be. Sometimes, the little thing's exactly how it seems. Exactly how it seems
I see the color of your eyes has turned to gray. I feel the wind is growing colder every day. Sometimes, I open up the walls and disappear. Sometimes, the crashing of the waves is all I hear
Ocean, oh, help me find a way. Ocean, oh, wash us all away
I know that everything we did will come around. I take the thought of you and burn it to the ground. Sometimes, I'm waiting for this ice age to arrive. Sometimes, I hate the me that's keeping me alive.

‘Where am I going…’
The Dragonborn walked casually through the subterranean tunnels of this ancient Dwemer ruin, in search of an Elder Scroll.
‘Of all the places for it to be in… It couldn’t be in someone’s library, no, it had to be part of another deathly descent into the unknown!’
Even though trouble waited for him down there, the Dovahkiin was armed to the teeth. A thick protective shell of dragon bones encased his body. A brown furry timber cloak covered his back. There was an even furrier, though white in color, part of this cloak surrounding his neck.
Should he be blistered by the outside wind, he would have that warm and trusty animal pelt to cover himself with. But he would first and foremost have his true Nord blood as…

Hey there and sorry for the delay. So, it makes more than one year that my first interview with AES came out and, i'm quite surprised actually that this project is still running and, as popular, and maybe more than it was in it's beginning. Anyway, today, i'm interviewing one of the longest-serving user on the TES, been here since 2011, and is also one of our bureaucrats. He came here, hoping to make this place a great wiki, and, maybe, one of the best wikia existing. I don't think he could ever have imagined that this same wikia he first came on, would become what it is today. We do owe him a damn lot indeed. So, to show my own gratitude, I decided to interview him, and, for those who are new here, please, take 5 minutes to read the inte…Read more >

I was figuring this day would come, but not so soon. As the name of this blog might suggest, if not I'm sorry but I doubt I could make it clearer, I'm leaving the wiki for a decent amount of time. This will likely be 24 hours from the time of this post, however, the time may be extended.
I know quite a few of you guys already know that I'm leaving, however, I decided to write a post so there are fewer loose threads about this. Since many members may not know me, it's fine, but I decided to explain why I'm leaving anyway. And I'll try to make this simple, so that no one gets too confused with this already poor-sounding blog post.
To put this in simple English, I am getting my Chromebook taken back by the school system until the next start of …Read more >
At what point do you consider the game won in Skyrim?
For me, it was the moment when I made a character a true hero of Skyrim. When I first started the game, I did any quest that granted my character power. Then I decided to do a stereotypical hero character.
I basically wore iron armor for the game and focused only on main quests, without commiting crimes, which meant I never became a werewolf or did anything with the thieves and assassins. Also, true heroes don't use magic other than some basic spells.
Defeating Alduin with these restrictions made me feel like I really won the gameRead more >
Wow, I can't believe this is the second year for me being on this Wiki, exactly that time ago I posted "Why the Stormcloaks are Right" and created my legacy on this site. Not much else to say other than this community has definitely changed a lot in these years, some things for better others worse, thank you all though for giving me some entertainment!
I had edited around a little before, so I've been here even longer than this actually!Read more >

Short blog, what ideas you as a player would like introduced in the Elder Scrolls? They can be ones for the future games, or revisions of some of the previous games or in-game lore. You can describe it as in-game lore or game mechanics.
1. My revision would start with the Daedric Princes. While, they have some good aspects. Here are my ideas for a revision.
1. Renamed to Daedric Monarchs. They still can be shapeshifters, for their "soul" would be set as either male, female, or genderless.
2. They or at least like how the majority see them as demons I wouldn't consider them like demons. They could be considered as monsters, dark or evil spirits of divinity, or as gods. They would employ darker aspects of creation that affect mortal lives and c…Read more >
Just after four days of the feature's release, Valve and Bethesda have announced that they are removing paid mods from the Steam Workshop.
Having decided to listen to the majority of the community, Valve and Bethesda have agreed on removing paid mods. Users who have previously purchased any mods can now refund them. Originally, Skyrim was intended to be the forefront game that would bring paid modding into the gaming community, though this has severely backfired on them. There have been a few legal issues and the Fishing Mod was removed due to Copyright issues just a few days back. Valve regrets making a bad mark on the modding community and will refrain from doing this again in the future.Read more >

After removing the workshop file restriction size around a month ago, Valve and Bethesda have released yet another change to the Steam Workshop. Starting today (alongside Skyrim's free weekend and sale), Steam users can now sell their mods in the Workshop. This works similarly to a DLC or micro-transaction system.
Users who purchase mods can refund them within a 24-hour period of acquiring them. Prices currently range as low as $0.30 to as high as $7.49 by default. The "Pay-to-Mod" system uses a "Pay what you want" method of purchase. Users can pay set amounts of money for the mods. It should be noted that free mods will still be available, and mods from third-party sites can still be used on the Steam version of . Modders can still upload …Read more >
ESO has announced console beta is starting at 10AM EDT, Thursday, April 23rd, through 10AM EDT, Monday, April 27th. This is a limited, closed public beta without any Non-disclosure Agreement.

For those of you that have been here a while - you'll know that every 10,000 edits I write a blog post - for no other reason than because I can, really.
It seems like only yesterday that I was at 50,000 - but I went back and checked, and it was just over a year ago now.
Wow - Now I feel really old. (Heck, this time last year I only had the one kid - that doesnt seem possible).
Guess I should warn you - I usually get a bit rambly in these;) (Although probably not as much as usual)
Its been a long year - both for the wiki, and also for myself. A year ago - we had just seen the release of Elder Scrolls Online.
Now, we are still uploading content from that game - not just because there is new content all the time, but because we have fewer editors w…Read more >
After the completion of the main story line the dragon born goes out to find and destroy all remaining dragons, but first decides to deal with the dragon priests like the one at skuldafn. You slay them all and take their powerful masks. Eventually you come upon a wooden mask at a shrine ad put it on in order to see its powers, but instead see the intact shrine. You pace all the masks on their appropriate buffs and wait. Suddenly the centre dragon statue opens, to reveal the last, hidden mask. But this mask has no priest you think, but then you realize this was meant for you... You check its engravings, Konahrik. you smile, “warlord”. You think back to the stories you heard about the dragon priests and how they were granted power b…Read more >
Elder Scrolls Online has announced a Welcome Back Weeked for beta players. From Thursday, April 16th at 10:00 AM EDT through Monday, April 20th at 10:00 AM EDT, players who played in the ESO beta but never bought the game will be able to play Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited without buying the game. For more information, players can check their emails and start downloading ESO clients. And there will be events happening during Welcome Back Weekend so please keep an eye on ESO official site.
What's more, some new items will be added into the Crown Store soon. These items include all crafting motifs, skill and attribute respec scrolls, Pledge of Mara and a limited edition svelte Senche-Leopard mount which will only be available for a limite…Read more >
So today I was a bit bored and a bit curious so I checked to see what my first posts were. What I saw was me roleplaying (badly) with no capital letters(pretty sure I got the commas right though). It was strange reading those posts now because it didn't seem like I was reading something I wrote. It looked like it had been someone else. So what about you? Take a look at your early posts and see how much you've changed and grown since you joined.Read more >
- Sub Races
The kajiits can be diffrent based on the day they are born.
All based on the position of the 3 moons.
Of course they can not have us being small house cats or giant mammoth.
But it would be cool to be able to be a bit bulkier or a bit swifter.
This would take more work though becuase they would have to remodel every armor three times.
Every sub race should have changed skills than the normal race.Read more >
- No co-op
I think co-op would ruin the experianc we all know. Most people love the series for the fun of being the hero.
One of ESO's faults was saying you were the hero. Even though you could see a thousand other heros all doing what your doing.
- New location
I am not really worried about this one becuase every Elder Scrolls game has been a diffrent location.
But would anyone really have fun walking through skyrim when you have played Skyrim for 4 years.
- More armor choices
In Oblivion you were able to wear Greaves.
In Skyrim this was taken away. I think they should add on to it.
Including Shoulder pads, Greaves, Shoes, Gloves, Helmets, Shirts,
- Customizable Shields
I thought it would be cool to purchase paints/skins for your Shields.
This will most like…Read more >
So, it would appear that the Nord dead are less dead than those back in Wayrest. Nor the spiders posess a sense of proportion. Really I should have known better than to trust a Wizard to give out a simple task, I mean I am a Breton, I should've known better. I had heard tell of the giant spiders of Skyrim, met some in my escape from Helgen, but one of them was simply beyond reasonable size. And then there were the Draugr, as I am informed they are known. Once again, I'm a Breton magic is in our blood, I am familiar with necromancy and this bore none of the signs of traditional necromancy. The remains of those Nords who rose, and it was not all, did not disintergrate upon defeat. In hindsight these details indicate that the Dragur where not …Read more >
Maximus the Great here! Some of you might know me from doing Daggerfall work, some of you might know me for other things. Anyway, I decided that I should put to use all of those skills I learned from my time at school on essay-writing, and write lore-based essays on The Elder Scrolls (it's more interesting that you might think). So, my first blog is on the Civil War. Now, this is one of the most controversial subjects of the entire TES series, and a lot of people still get divided by it, despite it being 3-and-a-half years since Skyrim came out.
This blog will (I hope) not just focus on why one faction is the best, and it won't linger too long on gameplay of the war (which was somewhat dull). It will instead look at the factions, leaders, i…Read more >
Hey hey there ! So since few people asked me to do it, and that it's Easter Week-End, i shall do something very special. From the great You know what really grinds my Wabbajack ? serie, Madman and Dave !

The Elder Scrolls Wikia: what is your global point of view of the wikia's situation ?

[This is satire and not for the current Administrators]
So today is actually a year ago from the legendary Jimeee Consensus where the Admins/Patrollers/Users with brilliant logic and reasoning opposed my completely unreasonable demands of equal accountability, Admins not abusing their powers, and all that confusing nonsense. I also sometime later lost my Forum Moderator status, and I just wanted to explain why the actions at this time were completely justified and actually great for the community as a whole.
First thing, Democracy in a wiki is overrated! Who wants to be given the choice of how boring site policies should be directed? Not me, I want to Roleplay! The Admins were doing us a great thing by giving us no influence or voice over ho…Read more >
Hiya. I'm sure most of you don't know me, or maybe you've seen me around the chat or on the mainspace a couple times, but I'm not really an active contributor here in any regard. And there are a few reasons for that, which is actually the reason I'm posting this blog. I want you guys as a collective community to know why I personally have avoided joining this Wiki for real for the last year and a half that I've been here.
I want you to know that this isn't my way of trying to criticize this Wiki or any of you, this is an honest assessment I've put together from the time I've spent here, observing everything that happens. It's my opinion and nothing more. I hope you guys find this helpful in some regard and don't take any offense to what I s…Read more >

This got posted a while back, and never really took off so why not do it again here!
the other day, I spent time thinking of Skyrim politics, and it sort of sparked some ideas on how the Korean War (North Korea - South Korea.) had a lot of similarities to the Imperial-Stormcloak Civil War
The Korean war started based off of the newly gained independence of Korea from the Japanese after their defeat in the Second World War. In turn, the nation got divided between a very Nationalistic Progressive north, and a more Western influenced Capitalist south. The north got lead by Kim Il-Sung and the south by Syngman Rhee. Eventually, the US got involved after the two Koreas got into conflict, on SK's side, because the North was both Communist and back…Read more >
Following the release of the game's sixth update just a few days ago, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has now been released. Keep in mind that this is not a new standalone game or DLC, it is just a re-branded version of The Elder Scrolls Online in celebration of the game's removal of the mandatory subscription model.
Speaking of the subscription model, as opposed to in the last 11 months for the game's release where you've had to pay $15 a month to play, today marks the first day in which this is no longer required. Of course, you'll still have to pay the regular $60 fee (or occasionally $20 during a sale) to get the game. If you currently have the game, you can log in right now without a subscription and play as long as you want…Read more >
Ok, so i was playing skyrim when i noticed that the moon in skyrim is waaaay closer than that of earths. So here's my theory. Skyrim is actually based on another planet, the Daedra are the inhabitants of this planet, and everyone got there after earth was way destroyed, making this game actually in the future. the reason there are earth animals is because sme scientists brought samples of each animals in cellular form with them to try to establish a new earth, but the Daedra all attacked and it caused a big war, producing some ruins that you cant find accounts of in any books. eventually all of mankind was restarted and history began again, causing people to think and act like they would in the past and using swords instead of guns.

I pride myself on tackling subjects most would not think to go over with a keen pair of eyes, mostly because they are almost universally accepted notions about the Elder Scrolls universe and all of its attributes. However, if there is anything Raoul Duke has taught me as a self-described journalist of sorts (I dabble in magazine articles), it is that the counter to what is most universally accepted usually makes good press...though I would like everyone to know that you should not take advice from a man who takes more drugs than Jordan Belfort on a daily basis. On universally accepted things, let me take us back to that dead horse that is the Michael Kirkbride debate, the subject of our Generation X users most legendary lore clashes. I wis…Read more >
While Bethesda no longer has any plans on upcoming DLCs for their now 3-year-old game , they have finally relinquished the 100 MB file restrictions on the Steam Community Workshop. This means modmakers can now upload larger mod files to the workshop instead of being limited to other mod sharing sites. In addition, mod downloads will be handled by the Steam Client instead of the game's launcher, though the launcher will still maintain it's task for updating the game with newer patches. The Creation Kit update 1.9.33 required for this is currently in a beta testing period and will end around March 9th. For more information, see the Bethesda article.has now released Update 6 after it's numerous beta weeks on the Public Test Server. Informati… Read more >

The Elder Scrolls Wiki What was your first reaction when you discovered you were nominated for adminship?
- I was pretty surprised. I knew that the wiki needed a new sysop, but I had expected that someone who has been here longer would've been nominated for the position. But I think that being administrator will be an interesting experience, and I'm looking forward to helping out the wiki some more.
The Elder Scrolls Wiki What is it you are going to do when you will be administrator?

This one is a bit different from the other one. It won't be showing skills of characters because the skills of the main characters are basically the same but a bit better and you don't need to know the skills of characters like Roy or Victor. Swims is a unique case in that he has no skills. He is terrible at everything (except swimming I guess) so he can be made into anything you guys want. I might edit this later to keep track of quests and such but I haven't decided on that yet.

So I was hoping to get some opinions on what armor to give certain followers. I don't mean what's ideal for them though, I mean what would be a good fit. For example, I give Lydia Wolf Armor since Guards seem to consider it "true Nord armor" or Stormcloak armor due to her "Skyrim belongs to the Nords!" combat quote, Benor just gets an Iron Helmet, Hroki keeps her default and Jenassa gets Shrouded Armor. The followers i'm having trouble with are Cosnach, Annekke, and Roggi. Again, i'm not looking for the best armor stat wise, just what fits them best. Right now i've just got Cosnach in Markarth Guard armor and the other two in their default. A friend of mine suggested Forsworn armor for Cosnach but I dunno, something about it doesn't feel r…Read more >
I have been going on this Wiki for the last couple days and have realized how boring everything is. The chat is almost never discussing ANYTHING, the Forums are just same old discussions that people have already talked about TO HELL, and the editing is only somewhat active. Maybe it has something to do with TES:Online being lame, but I like this Wiki. It's boring to have it almost completely inactive all the time because there aren't that many new TES games coming. Some of us still like Skyrim (me), and enjoy discussing it, even other titles like Oblivion are still kind of interesting to talk about. What about all the other people to discuss random stuff with on Chat?

I have been playing ESO for a good amount of time now and there has been very interesting and fun moments but no matter how fun the PvP Alliance War is, I always wanted to Duel certain people and do an arena style PvP situation similar to World of Warcraft.
The reason World of Warcraft was so successful and still is, is because people feel the need to be the best in PvP. Dueling allows people to showcase there skills in a 1v1 situation. Even if someone loses it helps both players overall, because they learn how to react to their opponent. Also, for arenas you were given a rating that showcased your skill in a 2v2, 3v3, or 5v5 situation. I know that for me being high ranked in Arenas kept me playing the game cause I gained respect from other…Read more >
In the latest released The Road Ahead, game director Matt Firor mainly talks about the future of the Loyalty Program, the philosophy of the Crown Store, ESO Plus, and console release and transfers.
- There will be two more loyalty rewards—the Mask of Cheerful Slaughter and a special Striped Senche (giant cat) mount, before the release of Tamriel Unlimited. Then the Loyalty Program will retire.
- The items players could buy in the Crown Store will serve as either visual upgrade or time-saving purpose.
- Members of ESO Plus will get bonuses to in-game leveling systems, 1500 crowns to spend in the Crown Store each month, and access to all DLC game packs for the duration of their membership.

I was serious now. No screwing around. There were obviously more than 5 of these masks, and they must've known each other before they got iced. After wandering around the Volskygge area, I felt a terrible presence atop the dungeon. I figured that there was only one way up there; but after looking closely at a dirt beaten path, I was wrong. I followed the path and unsheathed my Dawrven Sword. If it was what I think it is, then I'll be ready to take its mask.
Atop the ruin, I saw a strange wall with etchings on it. It was probably the Dragon Alphabet, but that didn't mean anything to me. It's not like I'm the Dragonborn or anything. I examined the stone wall a little longer when I felt a cold wind on the nape of my neck. It phased past my hoo…Read more >
The last five blogs I have done have been strictly political, and now that we have it sorted, I was set to go back into the shadows until the time I was needed to f*ck sh*t up came again. However, a user asked me if I was going to continue my old Wabbajack Grinding series or my theory blogs while I was here. I responded that I was not, but it got me thinking about the good old days and the Golden Age of Blogging that happened on the website before the First User Recession, when I was actually credible.

I'm currently downloading Skyrim as I type this so I thought it was the right time to ask, how do I bring my character from the 360 over to my PC? I've heard others say they've done this and would like to do it myself. Yes I could just Google this but, i'll be honest here, i'm a complete idiot when it comes to doing anything on the computer - hell it took me until last week to learn what anything other than 'lol' meant and how to install mods for Dragon Age. Whenever I search for something like this the instructions are always hard to understand so i'd like if someone could explain it in as simple a way as possible. I also ask people to refrain from quesitoning/insulting my inability to do computer based things, I know I suck at using comp…Read more >
