A Forge-master's Folly

With a torch in one hand and a maul in the other, the Orc delved deeper in to the darkness. There was no fear in his heart, just the burning fire of determination. He would show them. He would show all of Tamriel the worth of his people.…

Sleeping Hounds Never Rest Long

Silence. The first thing that struck Konrad as he walked into the dark cave was the deafening silence. The residents of Ivarstead reported the screams of a young girl coming from this very cave in the dead of night. A local family also reported their youngest child going missing and they assumed the worst. The head of the village approached the most trustworthy warrior she could find without looking far, this being…

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 24

There's many a yarn told in the Bannered Mare of Whiterun, but no one seems very interested in our tales of the crypts of Korvanjund. Lydia suggests it might be because we rolled in at 2am when everyone is already the wrong side of their mead, but I can't help feeling the tale itself lacks the thrill and danger of our past exploits. The Leggate somewhat legged it through the tombs, her imperial underlings dispensing with Stormcloak and Draugr alike, while Lydia and I wiped the spilled guts off… Continue

Both the Wolf and Skaal traveled together,…

Tales of Blackwood: Sparring

Tales of Blackwood: Sparring

The Tsaesci stood against the Saint, twin blades of steel drawn at her sides, glistening scales of gold shining in the late afternoon sun. She was unarmoured for a change, but she felt no shame. It was common for the Tsaesci to abandon their armor mid fight and to use their natural scales as protection. As…

Black Rose

Maven may think that she had complete control over Riften but that didn’t mean she knew what she was getting into by demanding, not asking but demanding her presence in her Manor. She suspected that she had picked this meeting place in the hopes of being safe, for whenever had an assassin been able to kill someone in their own home?

At the thought she let out a small laugh and her mouth curled into a smile. If Maven wanted to believe that she had the upper hand let her, but if for one…

POLL Who would be the best rulers of Skyrim after the events of the game?

As we all know, a large part of the plot and quests of Skyrim are based around the ongoing civil war and wrangling over the future of the province. We find ourselves inexorably drawn into this in the game - but what do you think should happen after the events of the game?

Do you think the…

Apples to Apples

“But what is the difference between the two? They are both Schools of manipulation, they both alter the fabrics of Mundus! So why separate them? That is our resolve, Azroth,” the Archmagister's impatience swelling, a commonality at this particular conclave of the Council of Mages. Azroth, the…

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 23

Lydia and I leave Ustengrav at 7am on Loredas 20th of Hearthfire to continue finding a route to Dawnstar. In a mysterious burnt out house on the way I find some snazzy dwarven armour, which seems to fit me rather well even with my robust human physique. Further on I get my first view of Dawnstar from an imperial camp set up on the first rise after the northern coast. Lydia and I arrive in town just before 10am, but not before a tussle with an assassin bearing a dwarven sword. I now have armour,… Continue

Inheritance - The Deus ex machine

Alarne sat staring into the depths of his mug; he was seated at one of the tables that ringed the main room of The Bee and Barb. The ride back from the clearing had been slow and he was sure it had been almost unbearable for Sofie. They had rushed to the temple of Mara and the priests had taken her in and sent them away so that they could work in peace.

Since then he and Runa had returned to the clearing to go over what had happened and to try and see if they had missed anything in…
