Welcome to the forum! (Except if you're a spam bot)

Hey all, You may have noticed that there's been an increase in spam "bots". Or, more accurately, real people who passed the captcha and managed to register their accounts, and earn a living posting porn links. As if porn isn't free everywhere on the internet. I THINK I've finally locked pe...

Re: Families and Relationships Statistics (Pre-print data)

I've always been puzzled by how the Mer would be viable if most Mer families only had two kids. Attrition being what it is, only managing replacement rate is a sure route to extinction. This isn't outright stated anywhere, but the way I interpret the Morrowind quote (fertility based on population d...

Re: Families and Relationships Statistics (Pre-print data)

Thank you!

In defense of incorrect info being printed for centuries, we do have things like Pliny's Natural History sticking around for some 1000-1500 years with some utterly bizarre proclamations.

Families and Relationships Statistics (Pre-print data)

In the ancient days of nine months ago, I decided to begin a project I have been thinking of for a long time: documenting every single family relationship in the Elder Scrolls. Similar to my research on elven lifespans , I hoped to prove or disprove assertions in lore, such as “elves are less fertil...

Re: Weird Skyrim Mod

Ya know, I actually _like_ most of Skyrim and would want to expand on it rather than get rid of it wholesale. This of course means no Alduin-but-not-really chickenshit ersatz World-Eater. But what if I like Alduin? :( I would want to keep him but also make him a whole lot more interesting. BIG. Gets...

Spicy Daedra Facts

After mourning my lost work on the improved Guide to Daedra for literally two years, I'm slowly getting back to it. What I'd love your help on is finding all the spicy, small, undocumented lore about the Daedra that I can't find in TIL's tags, a UESP page, or my brain. In particular: Unusual names a...

Re: The Lost Art of Shield-Biting

Excellent research, Tyermala, as always. I've never seen the little chess men and I love them, definitely something that would be right at home in Skyrim. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a9/NMSLewisChessmen2.jpg/386px-NMSLewisChessmen2.jpg While there's no actual basis for thi...

Re: Intro/Feedback thread

It does not currently, but I can make it do that. I'm not sure how much people want to be notified, but on the other hand it would serve as a reminder to check every once in a while. I'm definitely noticing it's harder to remember to do that when it's not a handy app with popup notifications.

Re: Watcha Reading?

Fiore - some very interesting inspiration there, may have to steal. HQ - but which version, though? I recently had to look up a verse for a joke and realized that some of them have apparently been translated so heavily all the medieval poesy is gone. As for me, I'm about halfway through Gentleman Ja...

Re: Gimme your hot ESO lore tidbits

*The All Flags Navy used High Isle as their staging point for their attack on Thras. We learn a bit more about Bendu Olo including an image of him in a statue. Do you have a picture of this, Bene? UESP doesn't seem to have uploaded it yet, and I'm very curious! I hope it's more in the vein of the A...

Re: Old fashion forum RP

IMO, the topic should be something that folks are already familiar with and feel comfortable playing without needing to do too much research or alignment with others. Late 3rd era Tamriel, for example, rather than something set during the time of Reman, where there is a lot of room for interpretatio...

Re: Gossip in the Library of Arrenaldo

These are all intriguing, but I think Voices in the Wind and Histoire de Renard fitzArnand are my favorites. A Reymon Romance made me realize that despite a amount of knightly visuals in the lore (especially now, with High Isle) there's a absolutely no fucked up Arthurian-style mythology, and that's...

Watcha Reading?

3 out of 3 loremasters agree: reading is the best way to become a better writer. So, what's on your beside table? I almost exclusively read nonfiction these days. The last book I finished was The Dawn of Everything , which I highly recommend (despite its length). It's a great re-examination of the r...

Re: Elder Scrolls Tabletop- Homebrewed System

Players choose to join on mercenary writs as they become available. This means if a person can't make a certain night, the rest of the party won't be held up due to their IRL schedule. This is a really clever structure! So you're essentially running one-shots, but providing narrative glue to keep i...
