"The "prophecy" at the end of the book is actually events from ALL the elder scrolls games culminating into Skyrim's events. In other words, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion, and finally Skyrim..."
Er... that's not all the Elder Scrolls games. Even discounting the side games, this list is still missing two. As for what's listed here, I see no real prophecy. Why are we listing trivia for content not actually in the game (apparently) without at least linking to said information? Or where the complete book exists? Where is the "full book"? Is it a physical feelie in the collector's edition? Elsewhere in the game? Tyrasis (talk) 07:37, January 24, 2012 (UTC)
Yes it doesn't involve all of the Elder Scrolls games, but it does include a lot of the major events. I haven't played Daggerfall, but I do know of the Lore when the Brass Tower "broke" and time was reshaped. Then in Morrowind when the Heart of Lorkan was misused and (as the power source of the Red Tower/Red Mountain) the Red Tower was disabled. Then in Oblivion the Amulet of Kings was destroyed in order to summon the avatar of Akatosh and close shut the doors to Oblivion forever. The amulet was the power source for the White-Gold tower and it is now disabled. Now the Snow-Tower (which is located somewhere in Skyrim) is in trouble because of the civil war. This link can further explain the significance of the towers and the significance of the wheel mentioned in the prophecy. http://www.ulthuan.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=37245&start=30
It is not the first book the player comes across. There is one on the desk right where Hadvar cuts your ropes off.
