Hello. As many users of this wiki already are aware of the fact that there is a large discussion about the future of this wiki, espescially in regards to it's current and future governments, policies and the actions necessary to enforce them, I have decided to provide a blog about the situation in which I will also state my opinion on the matter in reflect to surrounding situations and opinions. The entire current affair's reason for existance can be tracked back to the resignation of the only active system operators, Ghost Anubis, EbonySkyrim and TombRaiser and the controversial blocking of the user SuperSajuuk conducted by the administrator Kennyannydenny and based upon the repeated breaking of policies stating the requirements and terms…Read more >
This blog's primary reason for existance is to analyze what led to the currently 'dead' state of this Wiki and maybe give some insight as to how the community can prevent such a thing to happen in the future.
As some of you readers may already know, today (1/16/15) our two only active system operators, Ghost Anubis and EbonySkyrim, resigned.
This marks an unfortunate and sad day for the Wiki. Even though I have only been here for roughly a year, I have met several other Users who were significantly earlier already active. I know of them that the Wiki used to be in a somewhat chaotic state previously, something which calmed a bit down towards late 2013 and early 2014. When I first joined, the only really noticeable drama was contained within…Read more >
Hello, everyone. I noticed that many people seem to hate Michael Kirkbrides graphic Novel called "C0DA" (Link to it: http://c0da.es/ ). Apparently, even fewer people actually read it and thought about it long enough before being able to make an opinion of it. Many people seem to think that C0DA is ridiculous, not-canon (God, I hate the word "canon"), childish, etc. In this blog I want to explain the true meaning of C0DA to people who totally ignore it's message.
C0DA was supposed to end all Canon Wars. That's it. Let me explain.
So, we all know that C0DA has some unconventional things about it (the Televisionheads are often called that). But people who say that this stuff is ridiculous aren't even trying to look at it with another perspectiv…Read more >
C0DA, a 60+ page graphic novel written by former Bethesda employee and contract writer Michael Kirkbride was released today at 15:00 UTC. The novel is said to answer many long unanswered lore mysteries, such as the disappearance of the Dwemer, fate of Nerevarine, what is Landfall, the New Man and more. It also features unique artwork created by several talented artists however, as of writing, the artwork is missing but should be made available "any minute now".
The project has involved a lot of voluntary work, and will, therefore, be free to anyone with Internet access. C0da can be read here or downloaded as a PDF. In addition to the project, Michael Kirkbride has encouraged fans of the lore to create their own C0DA, or expand upon the work …Read more >
(WARNING: THIS BLOG CONTAINS REFERENCES TO OBSCURE LORE)
Hello everyone. I always asked myself if Auriel, Alduin, Tosh-Raka, etc might just be different names for the same god. I'm quite sure that many other people also asked questions like that.
I studied since roughly a year the obcsure TES lore which can normally only be found in the Imperial Library. I also discussed with other members on the official Bethesda Forums about deeper lore, such as CHIM or the Walking Ways. Now, I'm certainly no Loremaster, but I think I found enough texts and quotes that prove that Auriel, Akatosh, Tosh-Raka, Alduin and all other "modern" Time Gods, Shor, …
