We here at the Imperial Library pride ourselves on hosting everything related to Elder Scrolls lore, whether it is in-game books, cut content, interviews, developer posts, storylines, maps, or anything else.

What’s your favorite item in our collection? Comment by Monday, October 1st to be entered into a drawing for a set of TES character pins or your choice of an Elder Scrolls game from Good Old Games!

Here are a few of our favorite pieces:

I would have to say the first Pocket Guide To The Empire. With its transparently propagandist tone and the critical commentary scribbled in the margins, it’s a wonderful bit of world building. It has deservedly been one of the major foundations of the Elder Scrolls universe for two decades.

The Great War by Legate Justianus Quintius. Aside from being one of the few books from Skyrim that I have actually read all the way through, it gives tons of details about a really important piece of recent history in Tamriel, though the exact details of the White-Gold Concordat are still unknown (well we know like 3 conditions, but I’m sure there are more).

The first few that come to mind are The Thirty-Six Lessons of VivecThe Black Arrow, and Surfeit of Thieves.

Nu-Mantia InterceptSong of PelinalLoveletter

– Xui

I really like Zeph’s treasury. I’ve referred to specific blue links for Morrowind dialogue in a lot of online discussion over the past few years. It’s an invaluable resource. You can tell a lot of effort was put into it, and it’s a great resource.
