Elder Scrolls Lore


Elder Scrolls Lore

This plane of Oblivion is managed by three beings, Matt Feeney, Phil and Tom. While each is independent, together this triune make up the over-soul of a knowledge-hoarding Hermaeus-Mora like entity.

Representing HoonDingery, Thu'umery and Imperiality, the ending of the words is MATTOMPHI.

So, another seeker of knowledge enters our realm. This is Apocrypha, where all knowledge is hoarded. Perhaps you'll prove clever enough to uncover the secrets hidden here. If so, welcome. Perhaps you are a fool or a coward. If so you are in peril. Escape before Apocrypha claims you forever!

Amongst the infinite stacks and shelves of this library of forbidden knowledge you will find: 

The Directory

Many scholars and loremasters have been ensnared by the lure of learning the secrets that only Hermaeus Mora possesses. Here are those secrets...

Term Syllabus

Pages float on a mystical wind that cannot be felt. Every book has a black cover with no title...


Some areas of the realm are consumed by darkness. Missing pages and blank floating tomes fill the air...

Ask A Lore Question

The spirits of mortals who lingered too long in search of answers haunt these maze-like halls. Beware, lest you join them for eternity...

Posting Rules

The Seekers who guard the eternal mysteries require certain conditions be met before a manuscript will added to the towering stacks...

Just For Fun

Test your knowledge by taking on these devious quizzes...

As someone who came into the Elder Scrolls series with Morrowind, many of the events of the first two to three (if you count Battlespire) are something of a mystery to me.  I know the basic plots of them, and it seems like the big events of the…Continue

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/615803-/61309226 The book, The Arcturian Heresy, is all lies. How, you may ask? Simple, in game events debunk it. In both Daggerfall (which I never fully…Continue

Comment by Tom yesterday

I adore it. Favorite race is a toss up between Dunmer and Nord.

Comment by Phil on Thursday

I question the reliability of this source

Comment by Vazgen on Thursday

Probably Altmer. More specifically, the Thalmor 

Comment by Phil on Thursday

Matt, Tom, what do you think of the new Information section at top? Tom, I need your favourite race.

Comment by Phil on February 22, 2015 at 6:22am

Go on, start one.

Kyrielle's On the Nature of the et'Ada might help you form the discussion.

Comment by AncienTzSlayeR on February 22, 2015 at 6:20am

Guys I think we need to launch an examination into a) Whether or not the Aedra and Daedra can both be described as gods.

b) Whether Talos actually is a god or not. 

c) Whether Alduin is Akatosh or not. 

If this has been done alreadyyy, cause im lazyyy, someone please refer me to the research =P

you guys just hit 1000 members!

Ok Tom, the old one stays. I couldn't create a new one even if I wanted to.

Jeebus, by all means post your apocrypha here in, er...Apocrypha  The other hosts and I felt it's more fitting here than in the Story Corner, just ensure you use the tag "Lore: Non-Canon" in addition to your own ones

Comment by Tom on February 13, 2015 at 1:30pm

I think it's fine the way it is, but I don't object to considering a new one.

Comment by Jeebus on February 12, 2015 at 11:19pm

Is it okay to post my Apocrypha here? I wrote my idea of a page from a Black Book.
