Elder Scrolls Lore


Elder Scrolls Lore

This plane of Oblivion is Apocrypha, the place to be for knowledge boners. It is managed by three beings, Matt FeeneyTom and Phil. While each is independent, together this triune make up the over-soul of a knowledge-hoarding Hermaeus-Mora like entity.

Representing HoonDingery, Thu'umery and Imperiority - the ending of the words is MATTOMPHI.

So, another seeker of knowledge enters our realm. This is Apocrypha, where all knowledge is hoarded. Perhaps you'll prove clever enough to uncover the secrets hidden here. If so, welcome. Perhaps you are a fool or a coward. If so you are in peril. Escape before Apocrypha claims you forever!

Amongst the infinite stacks and shelves of this library of forbidden knowledge you will find: 

The Archives

Many scholars and loremasters have been ensnared by the lure of learning the secrets that only Hermaeus Mora possesses. Here are those secrets...


Some areas of the realm are consumed by darkness. Missing pages and blank floating tomes fill the air...

Ask A Lore Question

The spirits of mortals who lingered too long in search of answers haunt these maze-like halls. Beware, lest you join them for eternity...

Posting Rules

It seems to me that, aside from any cultural stigmas, the morality of necromancy depends on two things:1. The ethical treatment of the souls of the deceased.So long as the necromancer doesn't harm the souls or detain/subjugate them against their…Continue

Didn't know you were a songstress Lissette. Or was that an in-character post?

Comment by Lissette on September 28, 2015 at 8:43am

Don't sweat it, Phil. That's me during High Holy Days. Sang for almost 12 hours in three days. Doesn't sound like much, but it is.

I missed that question, sorry mate. I've just finished my four night 48 hours and find it really hard for those four days to keep up to date with what's going on here. I always miss quality stuff like discussion and builds.

In answer to your question I know zip all about it. I think you'll need to start a discussion to fill us in with this stuff.

Comment by Veloth The Pilgrim on September 26, 2015 at 4:08pm

Haha no I haven't heard that yet! I keep jumping between different characters, I really should pick one and stick with it. BTW what are your thoughts on the Doomcrag and Spellscar I asked in the question thread?

Comment by Phil on September 26, 2015 at 4:05pm

Speaking of Dunmer have you come across the dialogue in ESO from the rival factions which mentions their fear of being captured by the Dark Elves and their bodies used to hatch spiders? Loved that sentence!

Comment by Veloth The Pilgrim on September 26, 2015 at 3:38pm

Ah the Dunmer one was ok. Weirdly I think it looks very Dark Elf-ish but not Elder Scrolls Dark Elf-ish.
