    Monthly Lore discussion: A gathering of Explorers

    Welcome to a bit of a trial discussion this time. And yes, I am aware that these have become less and less "monthly" as we've gone on with them but well... Too bad, I'm a solo host and my schedule sometimes gets a bit rough :P

    Research: Murkmire

    Idea here is exactly like Karver's Research: Summerset - A place to put screenshots, lore snippets, and discussions of Murkmire lore. I'm a bit late to the party but it's fun to explore at one's own pace. So if you've got ESO and you're exploring Murkmire...

    Nocturnal: Goddess of Witches

    A single tall tree stood in the middle of the clearing, every branch thick with crows, watching the procession without moving. The lead witch placed the torch at the base of the tree, and her seventeen followers formed a circle and began their slow, str...

    How Altmer view the Dead and Necromancy

    So with the new expansion for ESO out and the land of Altmer being open I think it’s the appropriate time to look at the gems and jewels of their Lore and boy, just from the first hour of playing there have been several intere...

    Talos' Doctrine or the Lack of It

    Talos, the Ninth Divine. There always was one thing that sort of bugged me, especially after Skyrim was introduced. By now pretty much everyone knows what Tiber Septim achieved, how he became a god, because frankly, that is pretty much everything you ge...

    The Shadow of Rajhin: The Khajiit Who Stole The World

    Did Rajhin Use Shadow Magic To Reach Godhood?
    In Elder Scrolls when people often reference a god who stole his power there are usually talking about Vivec or to a lesser extent Talos (which is strange since they both steal\stole just as much). But there ...

    Argonian Jel

    Since the Elder Scrolls began, several races have emerged and, over time, their legend and history has grown. One such race is the Argonians, or as they would have themselves be known, the Saxhleel. Their native language, Jel, originates from ...

    History of Relations Between Redguards and Nords

    Perhaps this is a simple question but I’ve been wondering about the relationship between Redguards and Nords. A historical run down of interactions and such would be very beneficial but if not I’m mainly interested in their ties in the 4th era around the ...

    The Old Gods of the Reachmen?

    While this question may have been answered somewhere in the bowels of the Lore Group, I have a question. Aside from Hircine (Due to Hagraven influence and the whole antlered/horned skin helmets some Forsworn wear), what gods do they worship? I recall some...

    Lore Discussion: Gauldur's Race

    So, I've been doing research into Gauldur and his three sons Jyrik, Sigdis, and Mikrul. Whilest doing so, I stumbled across something interesting. Gauldur is a Breton, not a Nord. I believe we found out this by going into the code, where he is listed as a...

    Argonians and the Stars

    I'm starting to get excited about the ESO Murkmire dlc coming later in the year, feeling a bit of Hist hype going on. Got the Saxhleel shivers and Murkmire murmurs. I've also got a question in my own, rambling sorta way.

    Lore Discussion: Standing Stones/Doomstones and Birthsigns

    So after reading Phil´s short story, where his character obtained the power of Atronach Standing Stone, I started thinking about them. How they work with Birthsigns and if they are somewhat similar to Doomstones from Oblivion.

    When (and by whom) was enchanting invented?

    So I'm trying to run a character who knows about the Soul Cairn and, on account of that, has sworn off using enchantments. However, I'm noticing there are many artifacts with strange powers that (as far as I can tell) weren't created with enchanting, like...

    Hey guys, aside from Wulfharth, have there ever been any other attempts to subjugate the Alessian Eight Divine worship? Pre-Talos I mean. I couldn't find an answer to this.

    Discussion: Khajiit Honorifics

    In Interview with Three Booksellers, Jobasha says that it shows arrogance or pride for a Khajiit to give themselves two prefixes and/or suffixes. Is this sort of pride the kind that comes before the fall? Can stacking honorifics ever have a positive ...

    Meridia is a Daedric Prince close to everyone's hearts. She gave us the mighty Dawnbreaker and perhaps sparked our imaginations in a way no other Prince has. We all know her, what she stands for and whether we love her for her light or hate her for...
