Just don´t touch anything, the cleaning takes forever. If you need something, just shout. But not too loud. We like our quiet here.”

The Archives

"This place houses many things of the past, long forgotten by history and people."

"Assorted books, scrolls and relics... We´re sure you´ll find something useful." 


"We´re always accepting new volumes. We´ll take what we can get."

“That means we don´t know everything and we can be wrong sometimes. We´ll gladly accept any help."

Ask A Lore Question

"You need a book, you talk to me. Otherwise you're going to find yourself in a lot of pain."

“There is lot of knowledge here, not categorized or just not written yet. If you´ll ask, we might be able to satisfy your curiosity.”

Posting Rules

“If you happen to be fellow scholar, we will happily accept any of your work - if it´s suitable.”

"If you want to add a book here, you go through me."

Well, this place is the House of Orsimer Glories

I'll be completely honest with you, guys. That wasn't me, and if you wouldn't mention it I would never find out. I suspect this is the work of gro-Phil, that clan is quite famous for their poor sense of humour xD

I'm working on one as we speak :).
Comment by Karver The Lorc on July 4, 2016 at 1:31pm
I would create a discussion for it, Gloom. It's really great topic.

I would say that maybe even Jurgen had some fingers in it.
Comment by Accursed Gloom on July 4, 2016 at 1:24pm

Yeah, it's just that so many of the most famous historical magic users of Skyrim have such negative connotations, i.e. the Dragon Priests, the Gaulderson Amulet, the Great Collapse, Shalidor's Labrynthian, etc. Then of course their history with negative magic and, like you said, the Crisis and Thalmor didn't exactly help.

I've just found it odd that the original Atmorans obviously respected magic and this has changed so radically.

Comment by Tom on July 4, 2016 at 4:06am

I've discussed in many times in various threads. It's mostly a thing since the Oblivion Crisis, but the association with Elves and the Thalmor's use of it during the Great War really nailed the point home.
