    Do you have a handy list of your builds somewhere? Yours are my favourite.

    Paul England replied to Paul England's discussion Cul-de-sac of the Voice in the group Elder Scrolls Lore:
    Yeah - and I view the "the Dragonborn is an exception to all the rules, so go nuts and shout an old lady off a cliff, we're good!" as a *total* disappointing copout.  
    Trying to noodle with some of the stuff that claims the Greybeards view violence ...

    Paul England replied to Veloth the Prophet's discussion Ruminations On The Atmoran Totem Gods in the group Elder Scrolls Lore:
    The idea of Mara as Mother could come, in part, from a resemblance to Christian imagery that seems to link her to Mary.  The statues of Mara show her in a 'pietas' position (check Renaissance sculpture for that term - the only thing missing is the bo...

    Paul England posted a new discussion Cul-de-sac of the Voice in the group Elder Scrolls Lore:
    So, Jurgen Windcaller was a badass.  He's a veteran of the Morrowind invasions, and a survivor of the failure at Red Mountain.  He stands against the 17 Disputants - presumably Voice-masters of some significance - and swallows their Shouts. &nbs...

    Heh, I love the idea of this series. You're mad, Dragonborn!

    Paul England replied to Teineeva's discussion The Gauldur amulet, redefining the law of Firsts? in the group Elder Scrolls Lore:
    I could be thinking of this wrong, but the Law of Firsts might not be violated by artifacts like Harkon's sword. All the Law states is that "the first enchantment is the one that takes". And in fact, even when playing Oblivion or Morrowind, you can apply ...

    I really like this!  Playing my own bow-Elf right now and looking around for builds of an Elven perspective, so this was a nice find.

    Paul England replied to Paul's discussion Ask your lore questions here in the group Elder Scrolls Lore:
    Wasn't that particular Song of the Return added in ESO?  Or was it something that was just cut from Skyrim?  Either way, yeah, there seems to have been some sort of conflict from way back in Ysgramor's time.  
    I guess the exaggeration coul...

    Great stuff both of you, thanks!  
    Teineeva, I appreciate your finding that link to the 7 Fights text.  I had read that before but forgot that it contained references to giants, so that's perfect.  The video was a good find; I hadn't seen ...

    Paul England replied to Paul's discussion Ask your lore questions here in the group Elder Scrolls Lore:
    So, what do we know about the giants?  I've seen a lot of the stuff available on UESP, but I'm wondering if anyone has any crazy theories or interesting ideas.  
    I'm tossing around a lore-ish build that I am calling tentatively "Something somet...

    Paul England replied to The Long-Chapper's discussion Builders Discuss Topic 8 the Beeeeg three in the group Skyrim Character Building:
    I want there to be a stronger symbolism to the attributes than there probably is in 'reality.'  
    I mean, you have 3 stats, and the 3 classic TES archetypes:  Warrior, Mage, Thief.  Heck, the perk constellations even reflect the color schem...

    Paul England replied to The Lorc of Flowers's discussion Witchmen of the Reach in the group Elder Scrolls Lore:
    Great stuff!  Not only does this seem to be a one-stop shop for Reachman lore, but there's stuff in here I haven't found anywhere else, all tied together nicely.

    Awesome - glad to read this again!  Playing an Altmer myself right now, and sometimes I like to come back and get re-inspired.

    Technically, then, she *is* "even older" than you, Paul :P
    I'm going to be 37 next year, so I still have a bit of catching up to do age-wise... but with three 5-year-olds running around it sometimes feels as though I've lived an extra lifetime since they...

    Sounds like SE is the way forward, so after some hesitation that has my vote.  
    It'll be some time before I post a build here, partly due to having to learn the new system (which is probably just a matter of making the attempt), but partly due to the...  more

    Great to hear :)  Understand, a lot of my attitude is down to being a not-quite-middle-aged-dog now having to learn a couple of new tricks.  I just need to shake my cane at the youngsters every now and then, and I feel better.
