Welcome to House of Orsimer Glories

“Oh, so we have another visiter? Welcome, welcome to our Museum. Whatever wind carried you here, I hope you´ll find what you are looking for, here among the shelves and stacks with forgotten history and relics of old glory.”

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." 

Just For Fun

“There are few quizzes for you to test your knowledge about the world around us.”

You think you´re smart? Prove it!”

Magic and the Nords

Started by Accursed Gloom. Last reply by Misha Jul 6. 13 Replies

    It's a well-known fact that many Nords of Skyrim dislike and distrust mages. One must only look at Winterhold, the Stormcloaks, and generally most warriors. However, this has not always been the case. After all, Tsun says "The Nords may have…Continue

Well, this place is the House of Orsimer Glories

Comment by Karver The Lorc yesterday
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.

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

I don't believe so Glooms. I know DizzieDee did one on Redguards and Magic, but I do not recall a Nordic equivalent. I am not sure it has been addressed in one place here before.

It goes without saying that The House of Orsimer Glories would be grateful for any donation you have, if the Seekers of Apocrypha don't claim it first that is

Comment by Accursed Gloom on July 3, 2016 at 11:22pm

Besides the brief section in the On Magic: Racial Attitudes and Aptitudes article, has anyone written about what caused the Nords' collective and societal distrust of magic? I've got some theories after thinking about it and was looking to see if anyone's mentioned it before.
