Hello, folks. I've been around BGSF, off and on, for years; a few days ago, I thought I should say hello over here.

Moments ago, I read this: you are here to watch an alien rot.

Greetings my fellow Readers! (You are readers right?)

My thirst for Elder Scrolls Lore brings me here and forces me into a semi-british schollar sort of way of type,for which I much appologise. I also, on occation, have bad spelling issues so please excuse that as well. 

I excel at the art of the author, I write stories around my own, somewhat inconsistant at times, adventures and imagings on the world of Nirn and various realms of Oblivion.

I also must exert my details, I do not know why but it feels needed.

I usually take on the guise of either an Argonian, Dunmer, Breton or Redguard. I almost never use shields as I perfer dual wielding (which is why I perfer Skyrim to the other games).

I play for the story and the lore, learning all the history of the games I play.


My first (well maybe not first) post will be one of the stories formulating in my head as we (I sorry) type and probably as you read.


If anyone has any suggestions for my stories please message me and I will take all ideas into consideration.

I will also endevour to make acknowlegments of all who had make suggestions that make it in to the "club" so to speak. If there no acknowlegment dispite the use of a suggestion I sorely apologuies in advance.


If you did read the entire post, and you have kudos for dedication if you did, you have my thanks.


Yours Sencirly

Marethyu Liamini





and i have to many titles to list.

Consider yourself...

Not shunned, my only Elder Scrolls game on the PC is a copy of Skyrim, that decided not to work.


I, unbeknowst to me, bought a second-hand copy of the game. For those who are uneducated in the matter, this means the code used to verifiy the copy of Skyrim on Steam is no longer valid and thus requires re-buying.

Alas, t'is to late to ask for a refund, internet problems and all that.

Hello fellows! I am Aquilus, I have been on here for over two years but only recently got into the forums (thanks Jeoric!). I have played TES since I first saw my older brother play Morrowind on the original Xbox. But the first TES game I owned was Oblivion for the pc. A few years later I got the GOTY edition of Morrowind for the pc, then the Shivering Isles expansion to Oblivion and later the KotN expansion/plugin collection. And I fell in love with KotN, as you could probably tell. If you guys see me on the TamrielCraft Minecraft server my username is StuMan2011. See you around!

Hi all, just a quietly developing lore buff finally taking a shot at the forums. My interests mainly lie in daedric lore but I'm looking to expand my knowledge on everything I can for my own perverse entertainment in my baby chunks of free time. Currently plodding my way through Morrowind with zero graphic mods, in all its choppy glory, and replaying Oblivion for the first time in years. Not sure if the copy I pirated (what can I say, I have textbooks to buy) has Shivering Isles -- I seem to remember it saying it did -- but if it doesn't I'll cry. And I'm always making return trips to my dear old Skyrim.

I'm not quite so eloquent as some of you, it seems, nor as well-versed, so I'll probably just stay quiet. uvu

I was looking at the maps of Tamriel and I was slightly “annoyed” that the map I love not yet was updated after more than one year of the release of Skyrim.

I talk about the map of Nirn created by ArthmodeusD.

I was bored so I have taken the liberty update the map myself (hope that the link work) and I would like to release my version of the map on the most awesome Elder Scrolls site I know since I played Morrowind for the first time.

But I don't want to do that behind ArthmodeusD his back, so is there a way to contact him? Do you guys know that?

And do you Librarians like to add this kind of map in the collection?



PS. I wanted to start a new topic but I was not allowed to do that so I hijacked this...

You're now able to post new topics. This is Arth's Bethsoft account, you should be able to send him an email though that. Also try, which was listed on his Tamriel Rebuilt account. I don't think he's been around since 2009, but I'd try dropping by Tamriel Rebuilt (perhaps on chat) and asking if someone still has info for him.

An updated map of Tamriel would certainly be welcome, but if you're doing that, I'd suggest you make your own. The provinces are different now, and there are quite a few things that are wrong (due to previous lack of info) on Arth's map.

Thanks for the email address! I have try to email him but I got delivery failure...

I will look into if I got the time to make updated map of Tamriel.

Suggestions from what sources I need to use?

When I got an WIP I will make a new topic.

Hello all! I'm ALTADOON DUNMERI, but you don't have to call me that. I won't mind you making a shorter nickname or calling me Tabasco (my name on the BGSF). Also, my real name is Chris, so there's that. Pick yer poison.

Been playing TES since 2006 (started with Morrowind), having known and visited this site since... forever, really, so you could say I took my time joining. I'm here now, though, and ready and eager for shenanigans.

What else? Uh, I like Dunmer. Can you tell?

Hello Guys

My name is Fornax. I am a gamer who loves the story line as much as the game play. I write, create digital art, and publish/produce fan fiction RP newspapers. 

I am starting a new project for TESO and its RP community called, The Tamriel Witness. Its a collective roleplay/fan fiction/lore chronicle based in the Elder Scrolls universe.  

I am hoping to engage with this community to create an elder scroll... a Lore book in the style of the chronicle, which can be shared freely by all, as a RP resource.

Below is the first edition I created, last month.  (Click the Logo to open the edition)

Witness logo
This is a non profit enterprise. I create these editions because I love the games, the lore, promoting and aiding roleplay in the community, and telling stories. 
Please do check out The Krytan Herald and The NeXus, to see what I have been up to in conjunction with the fantastic Guild Wars and Wildstar RP communities. I do write for each edition, but most of the articles and stories come from the creative talents of the roleplayers themselves. Some submit ad-hoc, others have committed to writing once a month for the papers -they are the heart and soul of the projects. 
Please let me know if you would be interested in joining the project, and/or contributing to it. Authors get full credit/kudos for their work, as well as influence over the look of any editions, and free use of any/all edition produced by The Witness. (as long as its non profit) 
Contact Information
Please feel free to contact me here via pm, or if you are on Enjin my contact name is Fornax. You can also email me at
I hope to hear from you soon.
Kindest regards

Oh, hi there! This one is DanTR. I'm a gamer, fan of RPGs and FPSs.  I discovered TES 2 years ago and since then I've played Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim.

After starting to learn the TES lore, I discovered this site and decided to create an account here. I'm trying to become a lore buff. I'm a big fan of Morrowind, dunmers, dwemers, khajiits and altmers.

IRL, I'm just a student and an artist, who loves drawing, painting and reading (I also like to write, but I'm not that good at it).

And, that's it. See ya later, guys!

P.S: I'm a brazilian, so obviously english is not my native language.

I'm Flaan. I've used this website for info on TES lore in the past (Trials of Vivec), and actually came to try and find help with another game's lore and metaphysics (having had no luck with that game's related forums and websites), as TES Lore peeps have always been the best at figuring these sorts of things out. Since I keep running into trouble there, I figured to see if there was anyone serious about TES lore who had perhaps thought about this other game. Would General Discussion be the best place to post that sort of thing? What are the requirements to make a new topic?

In terms of TES, I played Morrowind extensively when I was younger (it was my first real game I played on the computer, I was maybe 11 and certainly didn't understand everything that was going on). Fond memories when I played Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC . . . 


That's about it! thanks!

Welcome (that goes for everyone)! 

General would probably be your best bet, unless you're relating that other game's lore to TES'. I don't know how many of us would have played it, but I enjoy talking about all sorts of universes, even in general terms. Only requirement to post a topic is to be a verified member, which I've made you. So post ahead!

Hello there, I'm Worm Zero. I'm magical practioner and travelling witch. I'm not big on the word "proffessional", what I do isn't bound by wage slavery or capital. A few other things about me:

*Despite my strange ways, I'm not a snob. I don't care too much about your own language as long as you aren't  being racist/sexist/homophobic.

*I've been following the Lore community for years, starting from when I was 12 years old. Weird to think it's been so long since then.

Hi everyone,
I'm "Frandar-Sensei"

Like others, my thirst for TES lore brings me here, among other things. Such as the release of ESO - which led to other questions that needed answers to, and this site have been a great help.

I've played a tons of video games, and I have always loved TES series (obviously). A fantasy world, so well made, and so rich in lore, that I sometimes find my self drooling, as if I was looking at a plate of bacon.

Anyways enough of me and bacon. Lets get this started!

Hey everyone, I'm Kilgore. I got into the TES series thanks to Oblivion, and since then have played a ton of Skyrim and a decent bit of Morrowind. Came here because I've developed a growing interest in TES lore as of late. Considering that I apparently still don't know much about it compared to other here, though, I think I'll read up on it a bit more before getting into any lore discussions.

Hello everyone! I'm Jarl Pariah,  really wanted to delve more into the lore of the games, figured this would be the perfect place.

Greetings, all! I'm Red Tower, and for once I don't think I need to explain what that connotes. Thank you all for that. I'm here because of my insane, insatiable hunger for Elder Scrolls lore. Or, rather, and understanding of that lore.

I was introduced to TES with Morrowind at the age of nine. While it is quite obvious that no nine-year-old would have much of a serious interest in, well, anything, that introduction did instill in me a buried desire, a subconscious need to play and understand this milieu. Since then, and it hasn't been too long, I've done a decent amount of reading in various subjects within the vastness of TES lore.

I've used this site for various reasons... From my own research, to the Sermons, to trying to bring some of the wonder of this milieu to the masses (via Facebook fan groups, etc.) It's been a long and interesting road, and I'm pretty sure that it will only get more interesting.

Finally, when talking about things that I care about, I often talk/write in a very scholarly prose. I apologize in advance if anyone becomes frustrated.

Thanks for such an amazing community and library!

Hello i'm Mejker. I'm using library to calm my hunger for Lore of TES series. I'm definetly not dissapointed by what i saw already and i hope to see a lot more. Only thing which is a small problem is that i'm not from any English speaking country and i have some problems with understanding really complicated aspects of it. But i try to do my best so wish me luck ^.^.
