The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 33

The north wind seems to carry a thousand daggers as it blows over the fractured ice flows towards Winterhold. I stand facing it, at once reminded of the isolation and harshness of my old college and doing so affords me the opportunity to consider again the conversations I have had that brought me here.



Ultimately I have come back here for the war effort, although there seems little military significance to this region: the college itself is interested in greater things than politics,… Continue

One of Sand and Snow: Prologue

Hey, guys. So I'm back, kinda. I can't promise 24/7 vigilance like I used to (I'll save that for the TES VI Blog, right? Right?), but I'm gonna try and be a little more active. Starting with this new blog story. It's a story I've had in mind for a month or two. It has a lot of retconning in it, I won't spoil anything but it'll be pretty obvious. when you read it. I will say that there is an attempt at a peace treaty, but it's still shaky (surprise). That's really…

Marudil: Blood And Arrows Epilogue

Night fell over the province of Cyrodiil, and the coachman driving Marudil and Sevria had become very tired. And so it was agreed that the three of them would take a break at a local inn, where their appetites would be sated and their energy restored. In the early hours of the morning, Marudil felt the…

Marudil: Blood And Arrows Ch. 7

Marudil and the Silvenar spread out instantly for cover as the Thalmor shot their arrows. A trap! They'd been led straight into a trap! But how did the Dominion know to expect them? Who tipped them off? Questions rushed frantically through Marudil's head as he and the Silvenar did battle with…

Marudil: Blood And Arrows Ch. 6

Night fell over the province of Valenwood, as Marudil and the Silvenar discussed their plan of action.

"So what is your plan, my friend?" Elberoth asked Marudil, "How will you save us from the clutches of the Dominion?"

"It is going to require a delicate touch. We're striving for…

Spellweaver: Chapter Five

"Damn provincial! A plague upon you for polluting our city!" the drunken, enraged Nord shouted, shoving the petite, vertically challenged Dunmer out of his way as he marched towards the hearth at the center of the room. He wobbled around drunkenly as he turned to face the now attentive crowd. "We shouldn't have to put up with their stench in our city!" he groused, hoisting his tankard above his head. The crowd murmured, and the few mer in the room started to slink out, clearly seeing…

Spellweaver: Chapter Three

I was jarred back into reality by my face meeting the dirt floor of my prison tent. With a groan, I was hoisted to my feet by strong arms, and dragged up to Aiden's house on the hill. Eventually, I was seated on the rough ground in front of Aiden, as he toyed with his omnipresent dagger. "Have you come to a decision Armel? Will you join me? Or will you throw your life away?" His voice danced in my mind. I could feel my strength starting to flow back, but I needed more time. I needed a…

Spellweaver: Chapter Four

"Here are the rest of your classmates. Get to know them well, because you will have to work with them in class, and as assistants on research projects," Mirabelle projected through the rooms, drawing their inhabitants out. "Students, this is your new classmate, Armel. Classes will continue as per usual. Dismissed." Mirabelle spun and stormed out of the room, leaving me with the motley assortment of novice magic users. Alone and in groups, they came up and introduced themselves to me, before…

The travels of Yuri Woodcutter part 32

Mistveil Keep houses the Riften Jarl and her entourage, most notably for me the curious aide called Anuriel. She it turns out is a steward, and something of a spin doctor for the indecisive and overly cautious Jarl. It's about three in the afternoon, and the whole gang is settled down to lunch when I arrive. I wait, and watch how they spend their day, waiting for some indication of when Anuriel will show her other face.



After a spell on the throne the Jarl returns to dinner, where… Continue
