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:

Races of Nirn: Bosmer and Khajiit

The True Nature of Orsimer

Started by Karver gro-Karves. Last reply by Karver gro-Karves Feb 3. 57 Replies

I'll do the opposite of object and tell you it's a great idea

Comment by Karver gro-Karves on Friday

Lots of people will object, but do it anyway, Lissette! 

Comment by Lissette on Friday

Hey, would anybody object to me continuing to expand on the artifacts lore articles by producing a lore article on Wuuthrad? I would include the ESO material as well and delve into its famous wielder and its famous smith. I'd slap it in the Workshop first.

The LMA's are back.

Someone go ahead and take the minotaur by the horns and post it. I have no time at present.

Comment by Veloth The Pilgrim on January 23, 2016 at 9:28am

Yes I like this idea. It means I don't have to think up a question on a topic and post it in the question thread just so I can talk about something.

Comment by Lissette on January 23, 2016 at 9:10am

Go for it, Phil. It would be the most messed up thread here and we all know how messed up we can get. I'll bring the skooma and the tomatoes.
