U.O.T.W. Chapter 12 The Enemy Within

Early next morning as the sun was breaking, Sotek awoke with a start to see Farkas standing over him. “Up!!! It’s time to see what you can really do”. With that Farkas left the undercroft and headed out the back to the courtyard. Sotek got up, put…

U.O.T.W. Chapter 11 A new beginning

Jorrvaskr, the home of the Harbinger, and home to the companions. As Sotek approached Jorrvaskr, he paused by the two giant doors covered in wooden carvings. He couldn’t help but admire the craftsmanship of the carved panels. Drawing a deep breath…

The Chronicles of Dar'Jon: Book 1(New Beginnings)- Prologue

There once lived a young boy who was raised in Valenwood, but he was not like the others. In fact he seemed to have more hair than the entire population put together. That boy, was me.


My name is Dar'Jon, with a heavy stress on the "J", so more like Joan then John, a highly common error made by most non-furry beings.  I am a khajiit, raised by two bosmer parents. My bloodline is unknown to me, but this one knows…

U.O.T.W. Chapter 10 A Stranger No More

Soteks first stop when he and Bjorlam arrived back at Whiterun was the blacksmiths. Mainly because all the armor Sotek had to carry was weighing him down. It was also a matter of convenience as the blacksmiths was the first shop he came to. The…

Of Blood and Fire: Chapter 7: Dead Fire Dried Blood: Part 3: End Game

The stench of the marsh hung in the air, and filled her lungs with every heaved breath.  She held one Elder Scrolls tightly to her chest. Her golden eyes darted every which way, fixing on every shape that came to her through the nighttime mists of the swamp, discerning if it was friend or foe, or just some tree. It was a tree. She ducked under its outstretched limb, and continued to…

The Draugr's Oath: A Poem

Our skin is grey

They are ice, but also

Alduin's inferno

Bellowing the frozen forge

That constitutes our soul.

We don't sleep

We merely pretend

To be the honored dead

Our arms withered,

Like our causes were.

Who did we bow to?

What gold was flashed

Just briefly,

In front of our eyes?

We stalk

A living… Continue
