Creed of the Assassin

My dagger is so thin.

It's really a knife, see?

So easily goes in,

slipping through the white meat.



Defeat is not an option.

I'm coming at you swiftly.

In the dark corners hidden.

Never see me 'til you feel me.



The knife goes in.

It turns red, warm blooded.

This is a sin.

I know that I am cold blooded.



From bed to the floor.

Your eyes hold shock and pain.

With all of the gore,

You are right to think I am insane.…

How the Civil War Ended

Taken from the journal of Ralof of Riverwood

By all accounts it started in Riverwood. Thinking back, I'm glad I left words of love with Gerdur…

Of Blood and Fire: Chapter 6: Heljarchen: Part 2: Treasures of a Rich Man

The Night Shepherds, Serana, Sol, and Bhruic, were in the Vaults of Heljarchen. Here, all the treasures of a legend lay. These were the vaults of the Myth-Maker who killed the Time-Eater at Sovngarde's gates These are the vaults of the Dragonborn.  Such treasures these halls must have seen! A main hallway split the vaults down the middle. Iron-clad were the doors that guarded the sparkling hoard.  The candles that lined the hallway had almost burnt out, and wax dripped from their holders…

Agony

   (Content may disturb reader)

     When I first entered this family... the dark family... I was nothing but a lad... stuck with a old hag who had that damned lease on me. I was letting her tug on it too much. Yeah... A bit too much. She was obsessed with some god named Talos... what a stupid…

An Open Letter to All Losers

Some say that loss is very hard to deal with. Others say that it’s a petty man’s problem and not to be thought in depth. Either way, once you’ve lost something important, your life will never be the same. A loss creates a void in your heart where it once was and depending on how you cope with said loss, it will either take seconds to fill or eternities. A wise man would say that the more you regret a loss and keep dwelling in the past that…

Prologue

So here comes a new version of prologue, more mysterious and packed with a little bit of action. Took me a long time to get my arse together to rewrite it. I've never liked the idea with the council. It was a bit off and gave away slightly more than intendent. So here's the new version. It's short but I hope I didn't screw it up :D. Other than that, let's get started.

 

Prologue

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 29

Legate Rikke has been relocated to the Rift in an effort to shore up the Empire's supply lines into the hot zone that is Skyrim. She says she wants me to return to Riften and work on the good first impression I made upon the thieves of that city. I'm still a little shaken from the untimely death of my travelling buddy/ hired thug Belrand in the mines nearby, so I'm more than happy to be headed somewhere with warm beds and daylight above me. I notice one of the camp's horses that seems less well… Continue

Breakfast

Golden light just barely crested the ocean view sill, washing the bamboo hut with early morning glow. Lydia entered the dining area with light steps and an easy smile, hair down and still slightly ruffled from the night. Kharjo followed her path with perked ears and grin from where he sat at the table, sorting a large pile of fruit and nuts he had gathered earlier.



She took her seat across the table from him and snatched a handful of nuts from the pile then proceeded to smash…

Desert Thirst Ch.10

The first days of the trek passed almost too quickly to be difficult. The Dominion had given chase, but Cyrus and his men knew that the elves would only risk venturing so far into the desert. In another circumstance it might have been the perfect time for an ambush, having strung the elves out across the dunes. But that was no longer a possibility. Scouts soon confirmed that the Dominion now moved entire battalions,…

The tale of Izlanda the fair

Izlanda had never been wilful like her older sister Makalda. But then Izlanda had always known she was not her mother's favourite child, and known that she would not be afforded the same latitudes. So Izlanda had done as she was told, and taken to her role in the family as the reliable hard working wallflower, earning her keep until the day her father could find a suitable husband to marry her.



When her younger brother was born in the cattle shed that had served as nursery for three… Continue

The Snowscale, Chapter 2

It wasn't much to look at, but there were few Imperial patrols in Falkreath, good news to someone who just escaped an Imperial execution. The first store Jeetum-Ja went to was the blacksmith. There he got himself a nice suit of leather armour and an iron shortsword. The blacksmith seemed nice enough to not alert the guards the second he saw a stranger, and even discounted the sword when Jeetum said he was going to join the rebelion. The next store owner, however, was not so kind. "So, whats…

The Forsworn Prince

     "For the Forsworn!", Fedoran shouted as a signal. A flurry of arrows were raining on the men in blue armor, who were stalking along a small path to their camp. He watched as one of the arrowheads impaled a neck to a rock. Without warning, he draws his sword and axe and immediately charges at the remaining enemies. His group follows after, while screaming at the top of their frozen lunges.

     The first Stormcloak tries…

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 28

The woods just south of the northern coast are peppered with what appears to be dwarven ruins, which my curiosity demands I investigate as we travel to join up with the assault on Fort Dunstead. Doing so brings Lydia and I to Frostmere Cavern, and an interesting aside involving a group of bandits, and a lady called Eisa. She flees the scene, inviting us to kill as many of her former friends as possible.



Inside we sneak up on and dispatch most of the underlings from the posse. The… Continue

The Seventh Path: Swan Song (Ch.11 Pt.1)

Silver, Serana, Cassandra and Miraak fled the battlefield, escaping the crossfire between the two gods. A loud explosion was heard behind them, illuminating the area; they could see past the fog for the first time, and noticed the immense, metallic dam far ahead in the grey wasteland, from which they entered this place.…
