“The ancient Ayleids recognized not the four elements of modern natural philosophy — earth, water, air, and fire — but the four elements of Altmer religion — earth, water, air, and light. The Ayleids considered fire to be but a weak and corrupt form of light, which Ayleid philosophers identified with primary magical principles. Thus their ancient subterranean temples and sanctuaries were lit by lamps, globes, pools, and fountains of purest magic.”

From “Glories and Laments Among the Ayleid Ruins,” by Alexandre Hetrard

Elder Scrolls Online, man

The beta is amazing, though it can be frustrating at times (I get stuck inside staircases and have to /reloadui a lot). I play an Ebonheart Dunmer Templar with dual wield, and I’m loving it. My friends and I are going to start a guild (if interested, go ahead and message me!), and we have very different ideas about guild names. I want something that references Morrowind, while my friends either want no references or only Oblivion or Skyrim. I’m the only one that loves Morrowind. x.x It’s a problem. A real problem.

Suggest to me anything you’d like to know more about in the Elder Scrolls universe. Also, I’d love to know your favorite Elder Scrolls lore, or character. I’m all ears. (: There’s also a reason for my Submit tab. Write up an official story in your own words, and I’d absolutely love to share it immediately.

reblogged for the influx of new followers!

“Any theories as how the Ebonheart Pact (formed by three extremely different, traditionally opposing groups) could have happened?”

Welcome back to my ask box, bachvevo. (:

I know that the Nords and the Dunmer have both had problems with Akaviri invasions, and so it’s most probable that they joined together in light of an impending attack.

Yep, I just looked it up, and the Nords and Dunmer joined together in a battle against the Akaviri. Apparently the Nords prepared for an attack, the Akaviri decided to attack Morrowind instead, and the Nords hunted the army until they met the Dunmer. After winning the battle, they decided to make a pact in order to repel the rest of the Akaviri army.

According to what I read, the Argonians were also in this battle, for reasons unknown. They joined the pact after battle as well. I really have no idea why an Argonian army would be in Morrowind, or why the Argonians would want to join a pact with the Dunmer (a race that has constantly enslaved their people). Further, the Argonians haven’t ever had a problem with Akaviri attacks, given their geographical situation. So, they have some other agenda. Maybe the Hist have some information that is above men and mer’s understanding. Here’s a post I made about the Argonians, maybe it can give some insight: x.

I just thought of a reason the Argonians are involved with Ebonheart — During the Oblivion Crisis, the Hist trees were said to have taken control of and/or influenced in some way all Argonians to return to the Hists and fight back the Oblivion gates. They beat the crap out of the daedra, and the daedra actually fled and closed their gates themselves. 

Considering that, I bet the Argonians have an anti-Oblivion agenda, this time against Molag Bal. If this turns out to be true, I’m forever going to consider the Hist the true protectors of Nirn.

The Alliances
In 2E 578 an arcane explosion in the Imperial City set off a mystical aftershock that swept across Nirn. As the White-Gold Tower fell into the hands of Molag Bal cultists, the border between the plane of Oblivion and Nirn was broken. The Daedra spawned all over Tamriel in greater numbers than ever before. The constellation of the Serpent grew so large that it dominated the night sky.

Without an Emperor sitting on the Ruby Throne, The Empire fell into disrepair. Facing a great danger, many provinces united into different factions, each seeking to reclaim the throne and fulfill their own agendas (esw).
