    After countless hours trying to decipher the inscruptions on the Eye of Magnus, I've come to a rather frustrating conclusion, and I'd like to know what your thoughts on it are. 

    Firstly, there is no other type of text in all the books I've researched (and trust me on this, I have no life) that shows any similarity to the text found on the Eye. This brought me to think that it was just decoration, but come on, it's Bethesda. The closest types of script I have managed to come across is the Mage Script text, found on page 2 of Shalidor's insights. The text speaks about Aldiun and Akatosh and their similarities; basically, there is no correlation between the two texts. Another close text which I came across was the text on the Amulet of the Eld…

    The past twenty years have revealed one of the most complex and interesting universes ever to be created—The Elder Scrolls. And it's why all of you reading this right now are here today. Whether you simply love the gameplay or are fascinated with the lore, it's the one thing that can bring us all together as a community, and that is truly amazing. It's a bond that I hope can never break, and as long as The Elder Scrolls goes on, it never will.

    And now, a word from game director Todd Howard.

    The list of entertainment products that thrive over a twenty-year period is a short one. It's a joy to be part of one. When I look back over the last 20 years I've spent at Bethesda, I think how lucky we've been to keep a group together that continues to gr…

    Hi everyone, Atvelonis here. I'd like to mention that I've purchased four Elder Scrolls books published by Bethesda recently, and through them I'll have the chance to add some interesting stuff to the wiki.

    • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Skyrim Library, Vol. I: The Histories
    • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - The Skyrim Library, Vol. II: Man, Mer, and Beast
    • The Elder Scrolls Online: Tales of Tamriel - Vol. I: The Land
    • The Elder Scrolls Online: Tales of Tamriel - Vol. II: The Lore

    The second Skyrim book and the second Online book aren't actually out yet, so I've pre-ordered them—they are set to arrive mid-September of this year. A lot of the content within these books is actually from in-game books, but these ones seem to include loads of additional st…

    Ok so I know what your thinking right? Your skeptical there is no way that "Old Salty" is the Merchant Mudcrab Easter Egg from TES:3 Morrowind right... Well today i've come to take you on a jouney... and not just and jouney but a logic jouney Damnit now it feels weird to say jouney.

    ANYWAY back on track here... today my loyal skyrimers and skyrimettes i will prove to you that "Old Salty" is Merchant Mudcrab.

    First we have to go all the way back to Morrowind and see the Muddificated Crab Merchant ourselves, now i know i cant show you guys but in TES:3 Merchant Mudcrab sold alcoholic beverages and he/she also had the highest amount of gold as a merchant in the base game.

    Now snap back to the future and we find a larger named mudcrab named "Old …

    Hello, after reading the recent Schism amongst some of the Wiki's more prominent lore theorists about the validity of CHIM, it made me begin to wonder, why is lore so heavily debated on this website and why are some users so emotionally invested in what is/isn't true, or what others users believe.

    Now, I've had my fair share of unpopular opinions about lore for awhile. I've made blogs on it, made them well known to fellow Wiki users, etc. To be honest, I've gotten way more criticism and downright hostile attitudes than respect by a landslide. This can especially be said about blogs I made on the Vampires and Dawnguard, which for some reason always bring out the worst in most users. But why do they care so much? It's not just them, a lot of p…

    One thing I would like to make abundantly clear is that my last blog on CHIM "Why I don't think it exists" was written in November of 2013, and the gap between that one and this one has allowed me some extra time to ponder why it is a dislike it so much. Well, I haven't much thought about it lately, until a recent spat with a user on my last blog came to fruition. The purpose of this blog is to act as a final refutation to him and all CHIM supporters out there. Before I could write a response to his argument, he saw that in the comments of the blog, I had not yet realized what the Enantiomorph was and no longer took me seriously as a loremaster. Once again, I would like to point out that this was back in 2013. I know what the Enantiomorph …

  • The Rim of the Sky

    While the hot topic of E3 has been Fallout 4, The Elder Scrolls franchise has also recieved some new info on future releases, including an upcoming spin-off.

    A teaser trailer of The Elder Scrolls: Legends has been shown, which you can view here. The game is a spin-off, and a card game using Elder Scrolls lore. It will be developed by Direwolf Digital and published by Bethesda, though not much else is currently known about the game.

    The Elder Scrolls Online has received some footage of the long-awaited upcoming areas of Wrothgar, the homeland of the Orcs, and the Imperial City, the crown jewel of war-torn Cyrodiil and heart of Tamriel. A tease for the Dark Brotherhood has also been shown with the Black Hand captioned with the words "We know" …

    Is buying the game worth it?

    For some, $60 is a small price to pay for an online Elder Scrolls experience.  Others, however, have realistic budgeting tactics that new releases don't typically fall into.  Well, I'm here to help you rationalize this decision: Should I drain all of my money into this game, or should I wait it out/not get it at all?

    MANY people had just barely purchased the PS3 when the PS4 was so quickly released. Chances are, even if you CAN afford a $60 game, a system costing HUNDREDS of dollars is not even close to in your budget. This is okay.  I have many friends considering buying the PS4 console specifically for the new ESO release. My advice to these people? Don't waste the money.  This is the exact predicament I am in…

    As I woke up and got to my feet, I saw Lydia staring at me. I guess she wasn't Fighting the dragon like I thought. I went back outside to see if the gaurds Killed it, but I didn't see any gaurds around... And there wasn't any sign of a Dragon... Maybe it was all in my head? I didn't have time to think about it, Because a guy came up to me asked for a gold coin. I gave him one and he said He was available for marriage... But I didn't say anything about it. I could Marry him, but I didn't know if he had a place to stay. So I went back to the Inn and I saw some man who I could hire as a follower. But for 500 gold coins! I was gonna come back later.

    Next, I went to Markarth and the Jarl said I could Search the ashes of a burned

It was a new place that I've never been to So I had to explore! Afterwards, I talked to him and he had the Amulet that I needed for 200 gold coins. But I decided to wait until I get this mission Done.

    So I went ahead to the women's parents, and it turns out that the mother

    Just wanted her daughter to be happy, it was her father who caused the problems! But it was all good because I told them to sneak away to Riften. Then, I talked To this man who wanted to impress a women he had a HUGE crush on. I talked To the women's handsome friend who was great at writing…

I gave her one and she said something about her mother who died and She wanted me to adopt her but I don't have a place to stay so she couldn't Come with me.

    The Murder of Nazeem

    May 29, 2015 by Kobkob1

    Day one: I stride into Whiterun, with the intention to run up in the Cloud District and have a very personal conversation with the Jarl. I run past Nazeem, dreading the words that no-one can stop. "Do you get to the cloud district often? Oh, what am I saying? Of course you don't ". My body fuels with rage and I feel my werewolf beast blood nearly rise to the top, causing brief, but intense blurring of my vision. My hand strays near my blade. But I cannot do the deed without planning.

    Day Two: I have created the ultimate dagger, capable of killing him without effort. I go to a local dealer who sells black soul gems, the ones obtained from this will be weak indeed.

    Day 23: After a long study of his lifestyle, I have managed to track down where …

    So i have a question... a musing, if you will... a general, very silly but strangely fun idea.

    What if = the Fallout universe, was the precursor to the Elder scrolls universe?

    Why i asked that question: Theres a peculiar similarity between Nirns geology, some of the creatures in bestiary Lore, and most of all - Masser, and Secunda. Nirns moons.

    Theory: The crazy nutbags from Big MT, or maybe another research firm from China, Europe or Russia somehow managed to build something. Something of epic enough power to split timespace or dimensions.

    Why: look at em. Big MT. scientists. look at the tech. its possible they couldve done somming like that! they lack the common sense to not try something like it!

       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.

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?

    "Ice Age"

    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.

    Chapter 1:

    ‘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…

    Like most languages, you use your mouth (assuming you have one) to speak. It starts with one sound, then a few more, and then we get a word. Likewise, you aren't likely to get far, not knowing the sounds of any different language. After all, it isn't just the words that are different...

    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.

    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 game

    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…

    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.

    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 …

    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…

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”.

    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?

    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.
