  • This is going to be a stupid question but do bad people or athiest go to Oblivon or another afterlife in TES?

    • i like to believe they go to the void, like all those people killed for the dark brotherhood. i think the void is the place where people go when they do not meet the requirements for any of the other afterlives.

    • Or if they're a werewolf they go to Hircine's hunting grounds I believe.

    • If you mean Deadra then no basically their a different race.

    • I don't think it works like how most people in real life think. In TES it doesn't matter if you're good, bad, athiest, whatever. It just comes down to meeting the requirements for one of the afterlives. With Sovngarde you just need to be a Nord (or be like a Nord) or die in combat. With the Soul Cairn you have to be trapped in a soul gem and that soul gem has to get used before you show up there. What if someone doesn't meet the requirements? I've heard about something called the Dreamsleeve which recycles souls and those recycled souls end up in new bodies so I assume the Dreamsleeve is where someone goes who doesn't meet the requirements for any other afterlife.

    • Thats the general theory of the Dreamsleeve if your not going to one of the realms of Aetherius or claimed by a Deadric Prince you end up there.

      In Battlespire one of the Deadra of Nocturnal used it to hide from Mehrunes Dagon's invasion of the Shade Perilous.

    • They go to one of the realms of Aetherius, are recycled in the Dreamsleeve, or become servants of Deadra in the realms of Oblivion. And apparently if you're killed in the name of the Dark Brotherhood you travel to the void, which is literally nothingness. 

      It doesn't work like in the Abrahamic thought in which nonbelievers and 'bad' people are sentenced to one realm while believers and 'good' people reaside in another. It's about the person's beliefs on where they'll go  and whether or not they meet any requirements for specific realms. 

      I don't think there are really any atheists on Nirn. In a world where the affects and power of the Aedra and Daedra are very visible, it's hard to deny their existance. The Dwemer were probably apathetic towards religion and probably saw no reason to worship Aedra, Daedra, or other spirits.

    • I don't know much about lore but it seems too weird trying to imagine where atheists go... IMO they shouldn't go anywhere, they believe there's no afterlife so it's pretty much refusing to go to one if there actually was one (TES wise).

      And I hope "Bad people or Atheist" doesn't mean bad people are atheists. XD Let's say there actually is an afterlife and atheists are wrong, wouldn't it be nice to just base it on who did good deeds when they were alive? I dislike the "Nords go to Sovngarde just because they are Nords" thing. Should be deed based like if they were good warriors or whatever the requirement is.

      I agree with Murky Night that there are no Atheists on Nirn. On Nirn, the presence of Aedra and Daedra are too obvious. The Gods really reveal their existence so everyone knows they exist, it's a fact. Dwemer do believe in them but refuse to be puppets since they can achieve much more on their own than those who waste their time worshipping, praying for a better life instead of actually working hard to reach their goals. Dwemer could be more of Anti-Theists than Atheists.

      Exactly, and Sovngarde is clearly based on Valhalla i.e. judaeochristian beliefs of good and evil don't enter into whether you have access, only how good a warrior you are.

    • In TES4 oblivion, As far as I know dead mythic dawn menbers go to Mankar Camoran´s paradise. So that is another option.


      I think Mythic Dawn members qualify for bad.

    • "Bad" is a very subjective term. It varies depending on which TES faith characters believe, and so whether they go to the "right" place is also debatable.

    • or just become a vamp and dont Die

    • Well, I don't know about you, but we argonians just head on back to the nearest hist to begin life anew.

      While everyone believes the Et'Ada exist, not everyone chooses to follow one.  Many argonians worship the hist.

    • Daedric worshipers , werewolf and vampire go, to the realm of theyre daedra (hircine for werewolfs and molag bal for vampires) Argonians are reborn by the hist , nords go to Sovngard and if I understand correctly , dunmers become some sort of ghost protector of the family .If you are soul trapped you go to the soul cairn .

    • In my bubble, the evil people go to the Void, which, in my bubble, is part of Oblivion.

    • The answer, much like the planes and realms of Aurbis, isn't linear. It usually depends on what the person worships and how they act, unlike our world where religions are seen as correct or not. There are other circumstances though for instance not all Nords go to Sovngarde they may be sucked into the void, summoned into a daedric realm to serve their master, tied to the plane of Mundus(as happened to Talos), recycled by the dreamsleeve, rebirthed by the All-Maker, or possibly even gone to another realm of Aetherius perhaps one not even mentioned before. Different races usually have a core belief though it's uncertain whether a race can follow another's beliefs. Some of the beliefs have their own "bad" place like the Khajiits who don't follow the way of the moons won't go to Llesw'er(Sands Behind the Stars) go to Namira's plane Nuqo Juna/Scuttling Void(Dark Behind the World.) Though some of the believed in realms and planes may be mere myths as we've only been able to enter few during the Elder Scroll games.
