    Case of Jyggalag

    Due to the great chat disruption, that happened yesterday, I'll be making this accessible by public. For a discussion on provided information, please, leave your comments here and keep it out of the chat, or at least the public space.

    I am still new around here, but I've been making some minor fixes and done little jobs around, as well as participating in some discussions. Currently I got into studying "The Wolf Queen" books. Strangely enaugh, it seems noone has bothered to make pages for mentioned historical characters, places and events. So I am slowly making those, but it's not near to to being complete, yet. Those pages that are already there are still chaotic and incomplete. Give me some time and I'll fix them all up.

    There is certain soul gem mentioned throughout the books. The soul gem Emperor Pelagius's II wife Quintilla, mother of infamous Wolf Queen of Solitude, Potema Septim, infused with soul of demonic werewolf. The gem has been presen…
