    Greetings, I am The Imperial Battlemage, ex-discussions moderator of the Elder Scrolls Wiki and aspiring author and conlanger. I enjoy writing, coding, and reading in my spare time. I am an Atheist and a bit of an anti-theist as well. I am primarily left-wing, but I hate both Donald "Can't Stump the Trump" Trump and Hillary "I Changed My Slogan Mid-Campaign" Clinton. I support Hunjoltoor (SheogorathCheese) and myself for moderator.

    In addition, I should be able to answer any question you have about The Elder Scrolls, Harry Potter, or LoTR. Feel free to contact me on Kik @the_imperial_, @ThatLoreGuy, or @AnotherIBMAlt. I also recommend you check out my YouTube channel (The Imperial Battlemage) and my Twitter (@IBM_Battle_Mage).

    My email is TheImperialBattlemage@gmail.com.

    More About Me:
    I am a German citizen by parentage and an American citizen by birth location. I was born in Texas, and now comfortably reside in Iowa, where I plan on staying until I have finished college, upon the graduation of which I plan on moving to the UK and going to university there. I have always had a deep love and appreciation for literature, particularly that of the High Fantasy genre. When I was young, I often immersed myself in the works of writers such as Tolkien and J.K. Rowling. At the moment, I am working on several novels with good friends of mine, and taking courses in literature and history, as well as listening to lectures on the aforementioned subjects whenever possible. I am particularly intrigued by Celtic and Germanic lore, and plan on briefly studying linguistics to help in the creation of fantastical languages.
    As I mentioned in my brief introduction in the beginning of this piece, I enjoy coding and modding. I have several large ongoing projects related to The Elder Scrolls Skyrim, most of which deal with modding. To name a few, I am working on a parallel to Blood of the Nord, a mod that continues the Civil War questline on the side of the Stormcloaks. My parallel is very similar to its inspiration; in BoN, the Stormcloak questline is continued--in my mod, I plan to further the Imperial questline. This project is of a very large scale, and will include hefty segments of other Provinces in Tamriel. On the other side of the spectrum, there are a few small immersion mods to be made, each making a small improvement, that, in my opinion, boosts the immersion of the game. So that's a bit about me and my life. The rest of this bio mostly consists of assorted links and reports on debates and the like, so feel free to browse.
