Emotional impact, emotional response Hello, I was 22 when I joined Bethesda Softworks. I was hired by Mark Jones after sending in a floppy (!) disk containing some images I had created using Deluxe Painter II (!), which I lied and said I created in Photoshop. At the time, I lived in Huntsville, Alabama, and had a few illustration pieces published in various pen-and-paper products for Chaosium Inc. and Atlas Games, after a set of circumstances that mainly involved being pimped by Brom to his contacts (which nets an earnest "!")... And in the spirit of Modelo-swilled digression...my actual pitch for the aesthetic of Morrowind was "Mad Max crossed with The Dark Crystal crossed with Star Wars. Fuck, I'm getting ahead of myself. He liked my "Photoshop" images on the floppy and wanted to know if I would-- "YES!" Again. I would come to know how important that game would be, though. ...what the fuck was I saying? Um. So I wasn't having anything to do with this dummy Elder Scrolls world. And that's why Obama got elected. PS.
Towards a Dragon'd Sea: Cathnoquey - Elder Scrolls Lore Towards a Dragon’d Sea: Cathnoquey Of all the Imperial Provinces described herein, Cathnoquey is the newest to join its ranks. Before being formally reorganized under the terms of the Veto of Charter and Decree of New Lordships [3E307], the archipelago was first established as a Third Empire Territory in 3E276 under Emperor Uriel V, “The Fighting Diamond”. Before that time, the “Kingdom” of Cathnoquey was an impressive egalitarian society of two quite divergent cultures, the tribal fishermer-flotillas of the Chimeri-quey, a loosely-organized coastal power of shore-khans, and the “untitled leaders” of the Men-of-Keptu-quey, who positioned their peoples mainly along an array of military frontier fortresses. It had no kings to speak of, in the manner that we do, but for the sake of history and Imperial embellishment it was given this royalty for context. It seems that the racial schism that still troubles Tamriel had never been a problem in Cathnoquey. SIDEBARThe Merchants of Quey After.
The Republic of Hahd Hahd is ostensibly an underwater country below the tip of what was once the Dellesian peninsula. Its government is not recognized by any under Imperial authority. As its people, also called Hahd, have made no trouble whatsoever for anyone in history (save once), this same government has never been contested, either. That Hahd is documented here at all is because of the singular time the Republic had an effect on Tamrielic affairs (which also marks the first time any of the known peoples had heard of it), and by some kind and enabling words of a mapmaker. In the early third era, the Altmeri Keepers of the Orrery of Firsthold suddenly paid tariffs to the Empire on behalf of the Republic of Hahd for “submersible exports of mnemolichite to the Emirates of Nahd”. While the Septim Regime was glad to receive the not un-trivial amount of the tariff expense, it did demand to know three things: one, what and where was Hahd, two, what exactly was mnemolichite, and three, what and where was Nahd.
Shor, son of Shor Llénnöcöcönnèll, the Anachronisle - Elder Scrolls Lore Llénnöcöcönnèll, the Anachronisle An island at the southernmost end of the Cathnoquey chain, formerly known as "Llénnöc" (Quey for "south-but-we-mean-west") when it was an independent state during the Second Empire. After the famous surrender of Akaviri forces at Pale Pass to Reman Cyrodiil, Llénnöc was quickly annexed as Imperial territory to help facilitate the capture of any Tsaesci military-leaders seeking to evade their failed invasion by means of the north-but-really-east sea straits. When no such nets bore fruit-- perhaps since the Tsaesci indeed never invaded by sea and therefore did not use it for retreat-- the Imperial Dracocryptography & Authentifications Congress petitioned to the Elder Council that the native government be further reorganized "to alleviate the sleeve-strain of invaluable but atrophying memospores". The Empire has never relinquished its holdings on the Anachronisle.
Loveletter From The Fifth Era Hello, everyone. While visiting the demons of the Haight last night, I was handed the document that follows. I was drunk, so I cannot describe the courier, but I can verify that it is, indeed, from the Fifth Era (!) of Tamriel from an author unknown to me, even in visions. It will be of interest to many lore scholars here; indeed, since it concerns Vivec’s “Scripture of Love” it was very much of interest to me. Enjoy.

Michael Kirkbride Q&A I don't pretend to know what love is for everyone FSL Professor Numinatus! Issue One: “Meanwhile, in the Empire” A story in 16 pages Page 1 Panel 1 - Wide across the top of the page. An indistinct magical-military installation, window ports looking out into the stars. Voice One: The chronocules are acting jelly on the eyeball again, sir.Voice Two: I can see that plain enough, corporal. Panel 2 - A staunch Admiral looking down at a gel-screen, a pool of liquid sitting in a brass and wire bowl sent into an intricate console. Admiral: Really? Panel 3 - On the gel screen, its contents leaking onto the console as the fat, crazed face of the Morbâd tries to materialize. Morbâd: Admiral Beauchamp? Panel 4 - As Panel 2, neither the Admiral or the Nibenese clerk have moved at all. Admiral: I most certainly will not. Panel 5 - As Panel 1: Everyone is shaken by the Morbâd’s gigantically-loud declaration, which appears in every gel screen or window port. Morbâd: WE HAVE TO FIND PROFESSOR NUMINATUS!

Approaching Vivec Art Design Notes for the Warrior-Poet Who is Vivec? Morrowind is holy country, and its gods are flesh and blood. Collectively, these gods are called the Tribunal, three deities exemplifying Dunmeri virtues. He is also the most public, for he is the beloved Warrior-Poet of the True People, paradoxically beautiful and bloody. Who is Mephala? Each of the three Tribunes were present at the dawn of Chimeri culture, at least in spirit. Mephala is the demon of murder, sex, and secrets. Mephala has both male and female genitalia, and both are grossly exaggerated in the idols, drawings, and carvings that depict it. As has been said, reverence of Mephala was co-opted into the worship of Vivec.

When the Altmer had no answers to any of this, the Ruby Throne grew suspicious and mustered its Armada to make sail. That same year, the Isle of Artaeum disappeared again.
