Elder Scrolls Lore

Founded as the first of the Skyrim Blog's many fine groups, the Lore group endeavors to raise awareness and discuss topics stemming from the colorful mythos of the Elder Scrolls universe.

Hosted by Vix, Kyrielle, and Kynareth

Welcome to the Skyrim Blog Lore College!  In keeping with the spirit of our founder, the illustrious, indomitable, and perspicacious Vix, we invite you to peruse our bookshelves (revised Table of Contents), proposed syllabus (Posting Schedule), and Suggestion Box, as no scholarly institute is complete without feedback from its enrolled sages.  Lore Master Vix and Lore Mistresses Kyrielle and Kynareth have many plans to increase the tomes in the library (lore articles) and provide symposiums for your scholarly edification (general discussion topics). 

If you have not already enrolled, please consider furthering your studies in Elder Scrolls Lore.  We are a friendly consortium that is interested in increasing our knowledge of Nirn and the realms beyond.

This came about from a post by Bryn on the Kinetically-Interlinked Nirnian about creating our own Lore, and that I have done, I present to you my version of Nirn's creation, and I may do more of my own lore.  In the beginning, there was the Void,…Continue

First and Foremost:With the conspiracy theories going around and the usual conversations in 'deeper' Elder Scrolls lore I guess it's about time we look at the question of the metaphysical 'towers'. I had been exceptionally hesitant to even reference…Continue

Started by Vix. Last reply by Mattius Apr 9. 11 Replies

History of the Garden Realm***      The last part of our Bosmer exposition is that of their history. It is a long history almost entirely intertwined with that of its neighbors rather than solely of itself. As such we will look mostly at the four…Continue

Is vix still active on this website because I would like to complement him on his race guides!

I've been wondering about the cuisine of the different races. I don't know if I'm the only one that thinks of this or not though. I think I might do some research into it and see if I can't find out some more stuff about it.

are any articles here on akvair or any of the akavir races?

Comment by Jasper Kane on November 19, 2013 at 9:04am

Why arent people discussing!! There are two awesome articles here that should talked about. Where is all the Redguard love at?

Anu is a Sumerian God. Just thought I'd like to share that with you guys. (When I heard the name a while back I knew I heard it somewhere else as well.) Think about it. You know how the Sumerian culture influenced many religions? Seems fitting that Anu would be like such.

Hey Dobyk...the intent is to have articles on all races.  They are incredibly involved to write, however, so they certainly take a ton of time.  If we did not have other responsibilities, they could be finished more quickly.  Our intent is to give all races their fair share of "love."
