I was roughly shaken awake, and hauled to my feet by a large hand.
“You with us imperial?" Asked a Nord voice urgently as the ground trembled under foot.
I groaned, as my vision came back into focus, I realised it was the rebel soldier I had shared a wagon…Continue
The waxing moons shone brightly tonight, the light transforming the river’s surface into that of a great silver snake. Flowing ever onward, yet never changing. So many victories, yet the same battles always return. Those too young die, the old weep, and a new generation raises the banner; and here…Continue
Tyranus set his mug down and looked across the fire lit faces of Karthwasten’s folk, “Hmmm, where to begin, not the beginning that much I know… and definitely not my first encounter with the deadra…”
“What type a’ story skips the beginning?” A Nord called out, taking an extra effort to fight the…Continue
An Empire at war with itself. An empire where one can follow one path or another, and there's no middle way. An empire where one must choose between family and belief, never both.
You love it.
Never being the strongest or the fastest - nor the smartest - you have had to make do with leftovers all your life. The scraps left behind by the high and mighty, the honorable, the stupid, and now - the unfortunate. That's why the sight of Helgen in smoking…
Tyranus watched the flames etch black scars across a branch with its escaping sap crackling in the fire. Its body fueled the light of the night’s revelry, yet come morning it would be naught but ash, forgotten with the rest.
He gazed back into the blazing fire from his seat on a log, his thoughts…Continue
Shortly after Farkas and Vilkas disappeared out of sight, Sotek decided to dismount and give his aching shoulder a rest from the horse riding. He led his horse along the path while he took in the sights and sounds along with the various smells of the plains as he circumnavigated the all too familiar tundra. Alongside the track he noticed a few Red Mountain Flowers which were growing in a small clump by a boulder.…Continue
Chapter 16: Detained
The guards had their hands resting at the hilts of their weapons, ready to draw if I tried to get out of speaking with the Jarl.
“You may tell your men to relax. I shall not resist anything you command.”
The Jarl nodded to his men and motioned for me to follow him. He took us inside the Longhouse and to the right, into his personal quarters. I closed the door behind us, keeping…
Around three in the morning, Aela and Sotek were rudely woken up by a pair of fists pounding on Aela’s door.
Aela, who was neither impressed with the disturbance or ready to wake up what so ever, screamed out at the top of her lungs at the defiler of her sleep.
“What the hell do you want?”
Farkas immediately stopped hammering the door and took a few steps back as if Aela was already at the door. Despite the fact that he feared her rebuke, duty called and it had…
Her muscles ached like crazy, all but burning from fatigue. Frantic voices screamed at her mind, urging her to run for the hills and get away from the unmoving vampire lord in front of him. But Sorine refused to budge, obliviously ignoring her survival instinct and the muffled whines Adam was emitting against her chest. Cato stood about ten feet away from her, still as a statue and watching her with subdued surprise. She in turn stared back at him, unable to put into words the mixture of…Continue
Omega - Chapter 7
There was an embarrassing silence around the round table in the Volkihar main hall the next morning. Lydia sat across from Thorne and the pair kept throwing shy glances and smiles at one another over breakfast. Serana looked at Maxim with an eyebrow raised and Fawkes grinned openly. It…Continue
Eorlund sighed as he mentally took stock of the pile of work he still had to do. Various weapons needed sharpening and there was at least three pieces of armor which were in urgent need of repair, if he could repair them at all. He picked up a pile of leathers which he had previously sorted out earlier in the hope of fixing one of Aela’s Ancient Nordic armor chest pieces and tossed them on the ground in front of…Continue
'The only time a soldier can be truly at ease, Caius, is on his…Continue
Sotek awoke to a wolfish high pitch cry which happened to be Aela yawning. As he pulled himself up he hissed angrily at himself for forgetting about his shoulder. A torrent of pain shot across his chest nearly making him cry out louder…Continue
Grow Up, Gularzob
What a beautiful day.
The sun was shining and everything was covered by snow. There was a man sitting on a wharf, a fishing rod in his hands, his face exposed to warm sun rays. The face was scarred with multiple marks left by fights he had gotten himself into. He had multiple little scars around his eyes - those were from brawls. Another lay vertically across his…Continue
Farkas, Vilkas and four of the Whelps spent the next few hours gathering all the furniture they could carry out to the courtyard. This left Sotek, Bjorlam, Aela and the remaining two whelps the task of loading it all on the wagon.
By the time they had finished, darkness cloaked the plains while furniture of all manner and description filled the cart. Sotek leaned against the side of it and smiled at the success of their ‘mission’. Between them, they had secured beds, chests,…Continue

With Kodlak’s help, Sotek managed to equip his armor. When it came to his weapons though, he only took the one axe from the rack and left the other one behind. As he walked away from the rack, he flexed his left hand and couldn’t shake the sense of loss over not being able to duel wield anymore. With a large coil…Continue
I must free myself from earthly possessions,
For hedonistic pleasures warp the mind and flesh,
It is I who must set myself free,
For only then I shall serve the Merciful One with all my mind, body…Continue
So that we can collect together all the hot-off-the-press launch news and reviews in one place, I have created this special blog post.

Omega - Chapter 6
General McCarthy sat at his desk, reading through the data slate held between his hands. He sat as stiffly as his uniform was starched and pressed. His chief scientist, doctor Gellar stood nervously on the other side of the desk, fingers twitching. He had not been invited to sit.
"So you have now lost contact…Continue
