Emperor's Guide to Tamriel

The first few parts of The Improved Emperor's Guide to Tamriel are now available. The Guide tells the story of Flaccus Torentius, a painter tasked by Chancellor Abnur Tharn with traveling the provinces and updating the old Emperor's Guide. The book includes excerpts from the previous Guide, other Tamrielic books, and the journal and paintings of Flaccus. All that amounts, of course, to tons of new lore and plenty of throwbacks to the old.

Currently, the dedication, introduction, and Cyrodiil sections are online - we'll be adding more from this enormous book in the coming weeks. You can find it in our Pocket Guides section, as Emperor's Guide.

Can anyone suggest the fint of the Emperor's Guide to Tamriel? The one that is not the handweiting if Flaccus.

I've spotted a few spelling and grammatical errors in the "Cyrodiil" section, and I'm not sure if they're supposed to be there or not, so I decided to point them out (if they are meant to be there, please ignore me and forgive my presumption).

The errors are all in the "A Meeting with The Chancellor" section:

"...when I entered the base ofthe White-Gold Tower..."

"...A pair of Knight Pladins uncrossed..."

"...but these were libelous and undair; the man was clearly..."

"...of fine breeding and intelect..."

"...and my lack of steady incone, which displeases her father..."

"...Dame Agrippa Gallus,is almost, but not quite..."

"...But is is badly outdated..."

"...Councilor Lucastawill speak of wedding..."

EDIT:

I reexamined the forward, and only found one questionable line where a word might have been misplaced:

"...humble offering and, furthermore, may with to convey your pleasant satisfaction to the publisher..."

Was that supposed to be "wish"? I don't know.

Anyway, I'm done. I hope I've helped!

I feel they should have done a bit more proof reading. xD

Anchorite: Fixed, much thanks. Not sure why spellcheck didn't catch most of that :/

I was gonna bring that up but I was afraid I'd sound terribly impolite.

Please don't ever be afraid to bring that sort of stuff up. Or fix it yourself, if you're up for it :P

Thank you for the reassurance... I was afraid I was being rude. I also wasn't sure it was warranted as the text was meant to be an unedited version of his notes.
