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...

Resources and Frequently Asked Questions

In the event Apocrypha does not have the answers you seek, these may help you on your quest...

Discussion: Trinimac or Malacath?

Started by Forgotten Rogue. Last reply by Valen Immeliodus on Friday. 23 Replies

As I have begun to expose myself to research and lore more and more, I have grown an affinity for Orc history.  I think part of the reason is it is so limited and thus easy for me as a newer ES scholar to understand and follow.  Anyways, as I have…Continue

I was thinking of writing up another Lore Article on Amaranth, Enantiomorph, CHIM, and similar metaphysical acts. Is anyone else working on something similar already?

Hello Alistar. Shoot me a PM if you'd like to discuss it in private. Alternatively, have a look at the posting rules which might give you some idea.

Hello people of the Elder Scrolls community. I'm not too familiar with this whole, Lore business. Let's just say this, I know what Lore is and I know how it operates. I just don't get the full concept of how to make a lore discussion approved. I'd really like some guidance on that particularly topic. Thanks!

Hey Gaius  People are sometimes really busy, especially now Billy and Ponty have a new CB Event going on. A great way of getting people interested in what your doing is to pose a question in the Ask a Lore Question thread or start a discussion about an aspect of lore you wish to get opinions on.

Hello people, I would like to recruit some more people to help me create my builds, why am I commenting this here you may ask, that is because all you need to do is research about certain things, I already have some helping me on this but more is always better with things like this! Please message me if your interested in helping.
