Happy 12th Birthday, Imperial Library!

Today, 12 years ago, Xanathar chose to abandon the Dragonlance section of Xanathar's Library, and the modern Imperial Library was born. To honor this occasion, we've updated the About Us section with a timeline of the major events of TIL and Elder Scrolls in general. You'll noticed that the actual birth of the Library was on September 1st, 1998, but you can't blame me for being eager to celebrate :) 

If you're looking for an even bigger blast from the past, check out our backup of The Essential Site. It was one of the first, and best, early Elder Scrolls sites, and many of the books and obscure texts which are now housed here began their life there. 

In addition to all of that, we've added two Redguard-related interviews conducted by the now-defunct AdrenalineVault. Although they don't really contain lore information, they do give a fascinating look into the mentality and function of Bethesda Softworks in 1998, before they made it big. Check them out here and here

A heartfelt congratulation to you, honoured and appreciated Kenas - and, of course, to you, dear library! (What? They listen, and very intensely at that - have you never noticed? Therefore the ceremonial Shh, too.) Allow me to send over a Punch Atronach for the celebration. Enjoy!


To the next dozen years,

Congrats on the anniversary, I haven't been a member for very long, but I've known about this site for a long time, and used it for multiple references, so for that, I thank you.

Bit late on my part, but congratulations anyway.


By the way, didn't Pete Hines work at AdrenalineVault?
