    Since Tein has an assload of work this week I'll take Foxy's comission about Abah's Landing. Will see what I can whip out, should be done before the week's end.

    Thanks Karv! I've decided to join the Thieves Guild in ESO so learning something about their hometown should be good for immersion.

    So what would you want me to focus on the most? The history or the current status of it, with people and locations as you mentioned?
  • November 13, 2017

    The history.

    Cool, that should make things a lot easier for me :)

    The end of an era and I'm four days late to the party. The amount of times I've tried to remember where a discussion took place only to discover it was in the Lore Questions thread and felt my heart sink with the realisation that it is going to be like finding a needle in a haystack are too many to count. So yay to questions being easily-referenced topics, and another yay to incentivising the pursuit and exchange of knowledge in a fashion that doesn't make the seeker of knowledge feel insecure and yet also encourages a well-researched and thorough answer. I look forward to seeing this grow.

    Part One of my Khajiit Pantheon expedition is complete. I've decided to turn it into a three-part series just because I didn't want to bloat the post much more than it already is. But this one covers Baan Dar, Riddle'Thar and Rajhin while also kind of dismissing all of the ones that were too Imperilized (Mara, S'rendarr, etc.) but depending on how Alkosh goes they might end up in the final article. 

    Loving this whole thing even more now that we've started getting Articles back Tein :D

    Hmmmm now where have I seen this before....

    Haha just playin, this'll surely pump out a lot of cool content. The Detective Agency lost its spark a bit ago but I'm glad to see an Elder Scrolls counterpart to carry that banner farther! I'm sure I'll be back here with something to be investigated, just need to rekindle my Elder Scrolls curiosity

    Not entirely sure how this works so I'll just copy what i've seen..
    In one of the main quests Paarthurnax says the Akaviri killed his kind when mentioning the trap in Whiterun, so my question is:

    Are all Akaviri able to absorb the souls of dragons, or is there some other way to kill them that I don't know about?

    I don't think this really deserves its own topic so I'll just answer it here.

    Anyone can kill a dragon. When a dragon is dead, it's dead. Unless Alduin shows up and resurrects them. Only way to prevent that is the Dragonborn, who can suck up their souls, thus there is nothing to resurrect.

    Delphine's in-game dialogue is quite clear about that:

    "We remember what most don't - that the Dragonborn is the ultimate dragonslayer. You're the only one that can kill a dragon permanently by devouring its soul. Can you do it? Can you devour a dragon's soul?"

    "I'm one of the last members of the Blades. A very long time ago, the Blades were dragonslayers, and we served the Dragonborn, the greatest dragonslayer. For the last two hundred years, since the last Dragonborn emperor, the Blades have been searching for a purpose. Now that dragons are coming back, our purpose is clear again. We need to stop them."

    "Dragons aren't just coming back, they're coming back to life. They weren't gone somewhere for all these years. They were dead, killed off centuries ago by my predecessors. Now something's happening to bring them back to life. And I need you to help me stop it."

    So it weren't only Akaviri slaying dragons, but also Blades. And all those dragons you see in Skyrim, they're the ones that were killed by these dragonhunters.
