Some of my fondest memories of Morrowind and subsequent games are in how much detail they went into with so many cool and creative books. None of them were giant tomes, but some had great stories.
Myself, I particularly enjoyed "The Mystery of Talara" and any books related to my favorite skills, as the stories tended to revolve around them and that was cool. Short Blade was one of my favorites in Morrowind, and Blade or One-Handed in the subsequent games, also Sneak.
What are some of your favorites in the TES universe?
I enjoyed the beggar, thief, warrior, king series. Aside from giving some cool skills that worked with the story, it had an interesting story that could be read both seperatly or apart. When I say the skills worked with the story, i mean it "taught" the skills without being a specificaly teaching book.
The Argonian Account books, as they were the first books I actually read. I usually just picked up books incase they were skill books and only read short notes or letters. Now I read books when ever I can. I still think the AA books are good. The only one that comes close is Wabbajack, which I know is about Sheogaroth. Good book.
A Game at Dinner - It was a book I came across originally while playing The Elder Scrolls lll: Morrowind on the original Xbox about 16 or so years ago. Back then, I was totally against RPG's and would only played a game if it was a shooter. I had decided to buy a used copy I saw sitting by itself at Game Stop. Even today, Morrowind is still my favorite game and I am not satisfied unless I'm playing something which gives me an imersive experience similar to that or other RPG's. .
📚 A Game at Dinner is my favorite book though. And if you havent played it go out and get Morrowind.. it's Backward Compatible for 360. if you still have it.
I enjoyed reading the Argonian Account series of books. It really showed you what life was like in The Black Marsh (at least I think that's where it was set). There hasn't been a TES game set in it (I think), but I don't think I'd want one, seeing how it's one big fucking shithole. But still, I enjoyed the books. It was the first series I actually sought out to collect. It happily stands on my bookshelf in Breezehome, along with other books and relics I've collected in my stealth playthrough.
