  • I can't find anything that describes how the Summerset Isles were conquered during the Tiber Wars.   I feel like every other province was described with more detail.  Does anyone have more info or a reference to a source with more info?

    • I'm not sure where to cite this, but as I understand it, Talos used the Numidium more as a message of power than a weapon. The proud Altmer likely did not simply roll over for him, but it probably didn't take much destruction of Alinor to prove that Talos had divine wrath under his control, which prompted Summerset becoming part of the Empire. This is why Talos is argued by the Thalmor (and a lot of high elves at that) to not be a god, and just a man that enlisted god-like power. Lorkhan's heart is what powered the Numidium, and the Altmer consider Lorkhan to be a trickster god and their enemy, for not only making them mortal and no longer the Aldmer, but also powering the weapon that would conquer their land.

    • I'm sure i've read a telling of this, but i think that was one of the interviews with the devs (thus not 100% official) about numidium breaking the Isle in hours, while breaking time so the siege lasted for tens if not hundred of years, but it cannot find it now,

    • found it It's not the Brass God that wrecks everything so much as it is all the plane(t)s and timelines that orbit it, singing world-refusals.

      The Surrender of Alinor happened in one hour, but Numidium's siege lasted from the Mythic Era until long into the Fifth. Some Mirror Logicians of the Altmer fight it still in chrysalis shells that phase in and out of Tamrielic Prime, and their brethren know nothing of their purpose unless they stare too long and break their own possipoints. Basically The numidium projects the belief of rejection and nihilism the dwemer had (world-refusal) and thus just NOPES everything out of what, even the passage of time and your chance of victory, in any possible timeline. It is known to be incredibly traumatic to everyone involved.
