Elder Scrolls Lore


Elder Scrolls Lore

This plane of Oblivion is Apocyrpha, the home of all Lore and is managed by three beings, Matt FeeneyTom and Phil. 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!

Ask A Lore Question

The matter of the Shezzarine is frequently mentioned in these forums; who and what they/it are, what it means, and why they’re important. Thus I present my first Lore article.“The children of Fadomai tore out the Heart of Lorkhaj and hid it deep…Continue

Leki is the god of abberant swordsmanship; she's all about angles of sword strikes, she certainly has a mathematical side.
Comment by Matt Feeney on Tuesday
Not sure. I doubt the Redguards care about his magical aspect. Yokudans were advanced in mathematics though.
Comment by Phil on Tuesday

That's a good point, what god is considered the Redguard equivalent of Julianos, Matt?

Comment by Matt Feeney on Tuesday
Phil, just tell me when they talk about the Redguards some more :P
Comment by Phil on Tuesday

The Sload was a good one wasn't it? I love how Cthuluesque they made them.

The next LMA will be answering questions about the Elder Scrolls, which will be answered by Moth Sister Terran Arminus. Any questions about the Scrolls, the Moth Priests, Julianos, Jhunal or Dibella would be good ones to put in

So Al-Esh was born under the sign of The Thief and The Bull of Kyne was born under the sign of The Lord? Very cool bit of lore and it's perfect.
