Has anyone heard of this webcomic? It seems filled to the brim with what may or may not be references to the Lore. Like, on the page I just read, someone says, "Reach Heaven Through Violence". Taken alone that might not necessarily mean anything, but there's also a lot of stuff about "Ruling Kings" and "Syllables of Royalty".

I can't quite decide if this person was inspired by the lore or if they were just inspired by the same sources the Lore comes from. If it is inspired by the lore, it's pretty divergent from it, but references it in just such a way to tickle my fancy.

Also, it's got the prettiest art and colours that remind me of James Stokoe.

EDIT: After digging around some, I saw the author of the comic mention that (s)he has been influenced by the 36 Lessons, so that question's answered.

Links? I'd love to read it; it sounds very nice.

It's nice seeing the Lessons inspire even outside the relm of TES Lore :)

Also: Yes. Link please.

Last night on True Detectives Matthew Mcconaughey discussed Elder Scrolls cosmology/creation theories. Not directly, but he basically described the Aurbis and the Time God.

I haven't read it yet, but its likely just drawing from the same source material. The Lessons draw heavily from several sources. "Reach Heaven Through Violence," for example, is ripped right from one of Aleister Crowley's texts. In fact, a lot of the Lessons is very thinly veiled Crowley.

Alright, I need to find this.

Edit: Done and done. Absolutely lovin' it.

@Fiore: I later found the author directly state that they were influenced by the 36 Sermons, which settles the question pretty authoritatively.

Well, that's pretty cool.

Speaking of cool, this comic is fucking awesome.

I was about to say! My only complaint is that it has such a small backlog, meaning that I have to wait for new comics now!

Just stumbled upon the webcomic and by the end of the second chapter was like "this person has definitely been reading the 36 Lessons." Was amused to find this thread.

Now I'm curious if the author is somebody who has been around the forums before.
