Hello, and welcome, to The Elder Scrolls Wiki :) --? ????t?? ?


Well technically I'm not an admin at the moment. I was - but Wikia itself had some issues and legal stuff. Basically: Even though I had 1 vote 'yes' for adminship, I NEED 3. Even though I waited 2.5 weeks with one vote 'yes' I had to go back to voting. I should get my adminship back soon when voting is completed. But nevertheless, thank you for your very intesting and heart warming message. And I'm sure you will edit a Metric-Fuck-Ton once Skyrim is released. Faith to you, Zluhcs. ? ????t?? ?

Altmer Question[]

Heh - I'm also the main admin here too, but thats a different issue. In relation to the Altmer question, though - sorry, but it is indeed wrong to write "Altmers". The plural form of "Altmer" is ... "Altmer". This is the term used in the in-game books and the in-game characters to refer to more than one Altmer. Indeed, for all of the Elves, both plural and singular forms are the same name. I dont know why, it is just how Bethesda decided they would be, and, as we are based around their universe, that is how we operate too. Does that make sense? :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 02:59, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Same Answer[]

Same as Timeoin said, it's always 'Altmer', that's just how they made it - and thus - that's how we write it. --? ????t?? ?


I very much like your edits - in quality and in quantity. Keep up the good work, my friend. You're doing great. --? ????t?? ?


Hey can you come check out my userpage - tell me what you think about it - I took like 30 minutes and revamped the damn thing :D ? ????t?? ?


Zluhcs - please be more careful when uploading images, to ensure that the images are not copyrighted. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to leave me a message on my talk page. TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 06:50, June 22, 2011 (UTC)

I left an answer on my talk page for you (and others too, which is why I didn't say it here) :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 12:20, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
Errr... Apologies! Yes, if it is a personally taken screenshot, then yes, re-upload it. (Unfortunately, I am only human, and I sometimes make mistakes :s) Um.. as for more messages? The easiest way is probably on Facebook. I am often on IRC as well, however, due to being busy in real life with moving house currently, I have not been on there for a little while. TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 22:54, July 20, 2011 (UTC)
Yes there is! I deleted a screenshot that you personally made. I know I wouldn't be happy if someone went along deleting the screenshots I had made. Well... actually, I might. Depends on the screenshots. lol. Some of my initial attempts at them are very dodgy (the arrow is right in the middle of the character's face, for instance :P) As for the conversation - you're welcome! :) If theres anything else I can do, or that you wish to know - please don't hesitate to ask :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 09:27, July 21, 2011 (UTC)
Okay, can you give me a day or two? I need time to find links to them :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 01:33, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
If you want to start without me though ... Category:Images_from_UESP is a rather large list of pages that have been obtained from that website. (I'd just ignore the "Map" ones for now, though - unless you have the construction set, in which case its very easy to copy them from there :D) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 01:37, August 11, 2011 (UTC)

Moving Pages[]

With regards to moving pages: It is indeed there. Where the page says scribe, there should be a little drop-down arrow next to this. Click that, and you should be able to see the move button there :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 01:29, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

Fan Fiction[]


Prepare to be... something....

Planes of Oblivion[]

Hey. (:

I am trying to make the pages of the Realms of Oblivion, and although there is barely any info out there so.. yeah. Although I have filled them in as much as I can, there isn't much. No images and only very brief descriptions. So not to sound like a massive twat but they're not really in need of attention as there isn't anything else to put in them. (:

adding pics[]

Why can't I get pics from google and also who keeps on deleting my page on The forlorn whatchman Brody C (talk) 05:01, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

It is because that picture you get from Google might be what is called for "Copyright", and both the user who upoaded the image and the wiki might get complaints for uploading a picture we've not taken ourself. It is always safer to upload a self-taken image, so please do that in the future.
In short: Do not upload any images you've found on Google or any other website.
Thanks! :)
As for The Forlorn Watchman you wrote; it got deleted because a page describing that quest in detail, already existed. Always try to look-up and see if there isn't already a page on this wiki about that spesific thing you want to write a page about, before making a new page. This way, your work can be saved, and does not have to be deleted! :) --Zluhcs (talk) 05:15, August 26, 2011 (UTC)

Welcome message[]

Fixed. Thanks for the heads up :) --Anon(Talk) 15:37, August 30, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Twitter updates[]

Hi Zluchs. I had already planned on setting up a Twitter feed on the new main page. I don't know if the Twitter widget is capable is using feeds from multiple Twitter accounts, but I'll look into it. If it can, I'll set it up with both of those you requested. JoePlay (talk) 16:51, August 30, 2011 (UTC)

Update on the Twitter widget: I was able to successfully use both feeds, so tweets from @EdlerScrolls and @Bethblog are being displayed. About the favicon, I uploaded a new one yesterday (top half of the dragon with transparent background), but it just isn't showing up yet. You can see the image here. JoePlay (talk) 18:24, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
The Twitter widget doesn't display the account name next to tweets, so they only way to tell them apart would be to have two separate widgets, I'm afraid. So for example, an Elder Scrolls Twitter section and a Bethesda Twitter section. Let me know if you want to do that. JoePlay (talk) 19:22, August 30, 2011 (UTC)
Agreed that using only @ElderScrolls would be best for this wiki. I removed @Bethblog from the Twitter widget. JoePlay (talk) 20:18, August 30, 2011 (UTC)

A heads up[]

Just wanted to give you a heads up to make sure you see the latest message I just left on Kacj's talk page about the new main page being ready to hand off to you guys to put the finishing touches on it. JoePlay (talk) 21:04, August 30, 2011 (UTC)

Hey User:Kacj321! Thanks for your kind words. It's awesome to see part of my little project being put into good use across the wiki and I'm glad you like it. Don't hesitate to ask any questions you might have about the {{XTransformer}} or portal pages.
On a personal note, I am a huge gamer and I happen to love all single player RPGSs. I've used countless Wikis and I'm sure that I will be using this one for Skyrim sometime in the future. Keep up the great quality and don't hesitate to ask if you need help. I will usually know the answer or where to find it ;) Cheers! --{{SUBST:User:Tierrie/SigInclude}} 03:01, September 4, 2011 (UTC)


I forgive you it's okay but i need to know why i was kickbannedHusky2413 (talk) 21:52, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

when may i enter chat?Husky2413 (talk) 21:52, September 12, 2011 (UTC)
You can now. Click the Edler Scrolls Chat link on the main page. It will bring you to the IRC chat. Wikia chat is forever disabled by Timeoin. -- Kaishiro Message 18:08, October 7, 2011 (UTC)

Nice Job Boss[]

I had just posted a comment asking if that guy could get removed before reliazing you were already on top of it. Just wanted to say thank you for taking your time to keep creeps like that out of this site. :)

Hey, sorry about not signing the post. I normally do, but it slipped my mind here. Liberal Ideas (talk) 04:14, September 15, 2011 (UTC)[]

I've blocked him and deleted his comments. Thanks for letting me know. Cheers --Anon(Talk) 11:24, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Seems Kacj321 already took care of :) --Anon(Talk) 14:43, September 13, 2011 (UTC)


eh Atze! Just letting you know i put your channel in my sub box on Youtube... and can you help me create a signature? Thanks! --Kidtragic (talk) 04:42, September 18, 2011 (UTC)

Like the one you used to have... the one on my Talk Page... except instead of Germanys colors can you make it Green, Yellow, Red in that order.... that would be cool Atze thanks! --Kidtragic (talk) 01:06, September 19, 2011 (UTC)

Pictures... that I drew...[]

Oh, Hi... Remember, when I said on the chat that I was drawing of how I saw the Nine Divines, we I posted them... not on here.. on my website... anyway... if you want to see them go on to this link;


I still have to do Talos & Zenithar but there are seven of them, including the older version of Akatosh's design. Hope you like! --Xxellenmaysongxx (talk) 17:32, September 24, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Good job![]

Hehe, it was just luck that I saw the vandalism when it happened, since I haven't been paying any attention to the wiki at the time :)

Also, I think you'd make a really great admin around here -- and we sure could use another one of those :) --Anon(Talk) 01:35, September 28, 2011 (UTC)

On the ":" page names[]

I just thought of it if we use pages like "Oblivion:Weapons" it will be basically copying the UESP way of naming pages. I'm just saying Kacj321|Zomboid Wikia|Elder Scrolls Wikia 22:11, October 4, 2011 (UTC)

Has nothing to do with copying. It's about being professional, and clean. Versus noobish and sloppy -- Kaishiro Message 22:15, October 4, 2011 (UTC)
What Kaishiro says is true. I can assure you I did NOT "copy" from them... This system generally works a lot better than the current one. This is Nab! Be nice or he will eat you! --Zluhcs  talk page  my edits  Elder Scrolls Wiki-chat 22:21, October 4, 2011 (UTC)


HI this is yateaust420 and i felt the need to apologise after the message you left me sorry if it was any inconvince. —This unsigned comment is by yateaust420 (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Long Time[]

I know it has been. I'd love to come back because I know this place needs me, but the admins are f*ckers to me, so I don't want to be here. I'd love to come back and help, but it's not worth the bullshit. ? ????t?? ?


Zluhcs, I am here to formally Aplogize of my Ignorance of the Image Copyright Standards and to promise you that it will not happen again. Best Regards, --Sll2797 (talk) 15:38, October 17, 2011 (UTC)sll2797

Hey, sorry about the Copyright problem, I was unsure about the copyright policy and the UESP wiki. I don't want to start a big argument over it so is it ok that I state that I understand the rules now and won't cause anymore trouble? Thanks, sorry for the inconveniece :) --Pheodas Draconis (talk) 20:14, October 25, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Homepage[]

Hi Zluhcs. The main page appears fine for me, using Chrome and Firefox. Are you still seeing the problem you showed me? JoePlay (talk) 15:22, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Thx!!! :D[]

many thx for voteing me to MOTM... i didn't win but second place! i didn't think i would ever become nr. 2! --G0LD3NF1RE (talk) 16:34, November 1, 2011 (UTC)

Re: Categories[]

I knew about the changes to the categorization system, but I didn't realize this also applied to faction categories. Maybe somebody could write a 'guideline' page to explain the new system a little better to all the uninitiated users :)

Anyway, thanks for letting me know. I will try to adhere to this system from now on :)

Cheers --Anon(Talk) 00:44, November 2, 2011 (UTC)


Why are you taking down the Achivements? They should be on the pages which the achivement involves. Kacj321 | Project Zomboid Wikia | The Elder Scrolls Wikia 13:49, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

There already is a page for all the achievements in Skyrim. Here -> Achievements (Skyrim). If the reader wants to access, and read about e.g Dragons- achievement's aren't anything he/she should be aware of. If he/she want's to read about achievements, there is a page for that. --Zluhcs  talk page  my edits  Elder Scrolls Wiki-chat 13:52, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but its good to have the pages involved say if someone is looking at the dragon page how would they know if there is any achivements involved. Kacj321 | Project Zomboid Wikia | The Elder Scrolls Wikia 13:54, November 5, 2011 (UTC)


But we aren't spoiling. They should be there according to me. The user may never find the achievement page or it should just be nice to know that if I for example collect 100k gold, I'll get an achievement. Please don't take them down. Everyone should vote or something. I've been working my butt of here to post all the images. Don'take them down. //JN273

The point is that the box added takes a lot of space. I do think achievements should/can be listed on related pages, but as long as it doesn't take too much space, and looks good- It's no problem. If we made a small infobox such as the RAGE Wiki has got here- It isn't too big, and looks good, then it would be fine. --Zluhcs (talk) 14:14, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
I'll start on making one right now. Zluhcs (talk) 14:19, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
I hope you're still working on it. I didn't post those achievements for nothing. I'm sorry. That didn't come out right. //JN273

Norwegian issues[]

I'd be happy to help, but unfortunately I'm away from home right now -- and there's barely any internets here :) But if you tell my what needs to be done, I'll work on it once I get back home (some time Sunday). Cheers :) --Anon(Talk) 00:07, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

I think the boxes are missing because the wiki is missing some css code. Try copying this code into the wiki's MediaWiki:Wikia.css and see if that helps.

About those achievements[]

Hi Zluchs, I just wanted to say that if you want help with posting the new version of the achievements, I would be glad to help. Just leave me a message and I'll do it right away, if I'm online of course. --Loke


Thank you, for letting me know about the new templates. --Loke 14:27, November 10, 2011 (UTC)


Yep. Probably a good idea. That one was made back when I was making a few thousand edits a week :) I think also, we should probably have some achievements for the new catogies (such as Skyrim: Characters and Skyrim: Locations, just to further encourage the new players to make edits about the game :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 10:26, November 11, 2011 (UTC)


I completely understand what your saying but in the case of Volskygge, if you read what whomever originally posted it, put directions (refering to a Location) and a small fact that there is a quest there as well. How could this not be considered both under those circumstances? I edited it from the recent activity list, not like I was searching out where I can catagorize stuff falsly. It is a Location, correct? That whole page needs to be fixed then. Up to rank 10 in one day... psh... SephirothLaw (talk) 23:50, November 12, 2011 (UTC)

Is there a reason the video I put up for the Horseman is not okay? I recorded it to show people what he did.


Hey, Could you please remove the page titled Falkas? His name is Farkas and he already has a page up. Thank you!! :)

Youtube Videos[]

Why can't I post tutorial videos on certain pages that don't explain things very good? I worked really hard making videos for this site. I own all the copyrights and it helps explain stuff that sometimes is hard to understand by reading it. Like I was working on an enchanting video becuase after reading the whole page on it, it is still hard to understand. So a video demonstrating it would help a lot. I own all copyrights to my videos and it is not in any way promoting me. I even uploaded a video of someone elses on the marraige page because it explains it very good. Some people are visual learners and videos make this site 10 times better. I am already famous on youtube and have over 12,000 subscribers. I don't need this site at all to promote my videos, I made them because I love helping people, and wanted to help this site and the skyrim community. I read the policy and guidelines and the videos aren't breaking any rules. I thought this site was to be informative and help people, why would you delete something that doesn't break any rules and is very helpful? Everyone loves videos so and I think it would benefit the site and everyone would agree. The other site admin thanked me for my videos and even moved one to the correct page it was supposed to go on. I have been signed up on the site for years now and site admins always appreciate my videos. I won't make any more videos if you won't allow me to but I really think some pages need them, at least on the very bottom somewhere really small. Or how about just a link to the video in the page? Let me know because I was going to make some very good tutorials for this site, but I don't want to waste my time if I can't even share them with the wikia community. Thanks --EpicGamerWorld (talk) 04:40, November 15, 2011 (UTC)

Oh my! I just figured out how to read my messages! Sorry! I was wondering why the videos were removed. I figured I must not have done it right the first time. I'm so sorry about that. I won't post them in the future.
ok i understand now... So could i post a link to where my blog video is in an article? Because like on that one quest there is a puzzle and its really hard to explain with words but a video show how to do it better. I thought i could post the videos on my profile page because it says in the policy that there cannot be an embeded or link to a video in an article, so instead i posted a link to my userpage which had the video there...Sorry for the trouble because this is all new to me... last year when i posted my videos for red dead redemption all the admins were very happy and thanked me because of how much all the users enjoyed the videos and how they helped. Well I stil love wikia and if there is anything you would like me to do to help I have no problem doing it. What this site really neeeds is a video tutorial on how to edit pages and stuff that would be cool. anyways thanks for the info and I will continue to try to help make contributions becuase I love gamers and always want to help!

Hey there, I'm not sure if you received a response for this, but I was recently blocked (for a day I guess), and I would like clarification as well. —This unsigned comment is by SnakeyesX (talkcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!
From the message you (Zluhcs) left on my talk page: "Hello, SnakeyesX. Videos are not allowed on pages on this wiki. I suggest you read the Policies and Guidelines for more information regarding videos. Also, please do not reupload a video I already have removed- that can result in a ban if continued. Zluhcs talk page my edits Elder Scrolls Wiki-chat"
From the Policies and Guidelines on Adding Videos: "Embedded videos may only be used in articles if they illustrate issues which cannot be expressed by written text at all or only with difficulty. Examples for acceptable videos are game trailers or a video illustrating how to find an item which is in a hard-to-find location."
This description seems pretty vague to me and uses a few difficult to quantify or relative terms (such as "hard-to-find"). Really... what qualifies as "hard-to-find"?
So anyway... all of my pages had the videos removed. I come back today and see that someone has added a video to nearly every page. What's up with this? --SnakeyesX (talk) 02:59, November 18, 2011 (UTC)
To answer your question, you must look at the policy again; Embedded videos may only be used in articles if they illustrate issues which cannot be expressed by written text at all or only with difficulty. Which is very, very rare, as mostly anything can be described by words. Examples might be a certain sound of a spell, Dragon shout, etc- something that is indescribable to a certain excent.
I am not so sure what you mean by "I come back today and see that someone has added a video to nearly every page", as I checked the history and haven't noticed any videos being added since last time I was online. If you can add links to show me, I'd be glad to have a look at them. Zluhcs  talk page  my edits  Elder Scrolls Wiki-chat
Challenge accepted...
--SnakeyesX (talk) 07:56, November 18, 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! I'll see to have the videos removed from the pages. If you come across any other videos on article pages, you're free to notice me or remove the video from the page yourself. :) Happy editing! Zluhcs  talk page  my edits  Elder Scrolls Wiki-chat

Blog Posts[]

I've tried making 2 blogs and they are not showing up anywhere. Am i doing something wrong? EpicGamerWorld (talk) 11:58, November 15, 2011 (UTC)



Quests (Skyrim) is where you can find them. Failing that, the folks in IRC can help you out TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSee current projects 22:53, November 15, 2011 (UTC)


Thanks for the info and the help. If they are allowed in the reference, I will make my videos more professional from now on and mention to everyone to visit the wikia page that it is on for even more info. This will get the site a lot of traffic and make it even more popular! Let me know because I still want to contribute to the site as much as possible by adding something unique.

Infobox Help[]

Hi Zluchs,

So I'm on board with the Skyrim: Category thing ;) and I'm catching up in achievements! I'm having a tough time finding an infobox for creatures - do you know if there is one? For now I'm just turning large images into thumbnails, but I'd like to add infoboxes so we keep the site's continuity in order. I'm no good with css so I'm Hoping there's one already prettied up for me to use because the 'generic' infobox is hideous. I'm just not having any luck in finding one and randomly clicking on creature pages has been fruitless.

Take care, ~ Trippet (Talk) 02:39, November 19, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you for the template - it's been put to good use. 8) ~ Trippet (Talk) 01:02, November 20, 2011 (UTC)

Deadmen's Respite Exit[]

Hello! I recently went to Deadmen's Respite in order to fulfill multiple quests, and ran into a bit of a problem. I saw the ghost, grabbed the Dragonclaw... and nothing happened. The gate remained closed and the Dragur remained asleep. I had a follower with me (PS3 version), so I don't know if that is what caused the problem. I tried everything I could to make the sequence start, like dropping a similar sized object onto the area the claw was on, woke the Dragur with fire, and so on. But nothing worked.. so my hope is that it is possible to get into the respite from the EXIT.. and I was hoping you would be able to help me by showing me where it is, or to assisst in any way possible. All help is appreciated!! Thank you for your time --Tjolson (talk) 03:54, November 21, 2011 (UTC)tjolson


Please can you deal with this user? He keeps uploading UESP content, which is contrary to what we discussed a couple of weeks ago. Thanks. –rpeh •TCE 12:11, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

I'm uploading copyrighted Bethesda content which UESP have taken a screen-capture of. If these two wiki's have reached some soft of accord to not share images, this should be noted in the Upload instructions and also the attribution template should probably be removed. Should this be the case, I still do not agree with replacing the image on the page with this ridiculous message. SuperGiraffe 12:29, November 23, 2011 (UTC)


Hello, I was just wondering what was wrong with the video i had placed on the Innocence lost page. i have put videos on other pages around here and they are still not removed. please let me know if something is wrong. --RedRayMedia (talk) 18:09, November 23, 2011 (UTC)RedRayMedia


Trust me: I know all about the video thing. But after reading this edit, I became incredibly confused about what is allowed and what isn't, figuring it better to just let someone else take care of it, then get snubbed and ridiculed like I have been by other editors. Now, that said, I'm really curious: Are links to videos allowed? Because I've been freely removing those as well. Personally, I'd rather keep readers on the wiki than send them to youtube. They would've went there first, right, if that's what they wanted? --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 18:10, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the quick reply. Since embedding isnt allowed, are hyperlinks to the video allowed? Thanks again --RedRayMedia (talk) 18:16, November 23, 2011 (UTC)


Glad I brought it to your attention, then. It happened at about 4 A.M. (Eastern Standard Time). At any rate, there was another video recently put in an article, which I removed and marked for deletion. Until said conversation is had between you guys, I'll keep removing them. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 18:35, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

Drop-Down Menu[]

Just so you know... there was a very good reason why I had that drop down menu there: To make it easier for the readers to find the Skyrim pages that they were looking for. TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 22:47, November 23, 2011 (UTC)

With regard to videos, too, I'm online for a little bit now, and will be online later today TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 22:50, November 23, 2011 (UTC)
Aaah, okay :) They were there still, just not showing up for some odd reason (I have no fixed that by temporarily removing the games list for now. 99% of readers atm are here for Skyrim, so its not such a problem (Particularly with the main page giving those links anyway?)

Can't think of a title, title[]

Happy holidays! I was wondering if you ever got the chance to talk to Timeoin about the videos and video links. I just want to know what the official say is, so I know whether to ignore them or take them out. If the previous policy still holds, I would recommend checking out NotCasuals, because he's putting tons of links to videos into articles after being warned multiple times and directed to the Policy and Guidelines. Just thought you should know. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 00:18, November 25, 2011 (UTC)

Haven't talked to him about the links, but I did see him comment on someone else's talk page about them being allowed. --— Radical D (bother \ stalk) 13:50, November 28, 2011 (UTC)

Frustration in Folgunthur[]

Hello, I have a serious problem, I have just completed the Folgunthur section of Forbidden Legend, and on my way out I discovered the gate leading to Skyrim will not open. I got through the first gate, but the second gate is closed and I don't know how to get it open. I have tried every switch/chain/lever in the dungeon and it WILL NOT OPEN. This is immensely frustrating as I cannot leave the dungeon, PLEASE HELP ME.

Your note about pictures from other sites[]

Hey Zluhcs, Thanks for your helpful note! I will keep that in mind. I guess I should read the rules about editing. Crkevork (talk) 00:48, December 5, 2011 (UTC)crkevork


Hey, um... I didnt add that to the policies and prodecures. That part was already there. (the Embedded Videos part). I left it there because, for example, it is beneficial to show the video that is available from Bethesda regarding the intro to things like Arena and Daggerfall. Its an official one, and isnt PR at all. I agree that a lot of the videos here are personal promotion based, which is why I've been removing a heap of them where I see them. The bit at the end is to say something along the lines of "see <here> for a walkthrough", etc. Personally, I dont think we need ANY of them, but folks are going to our wiki to find those videos, so yeah, thats always good :) TimeoinSay G'DayView my workSkyrim To-Do List 07:28, December 5, 2011 (UTC)

Walkthrough Videos[]

Hi Zluhcs, I also have a question about videos. Looking at the policies and procedures page, it's kinda vague about what is allowed. At least i'm not sure what to do about this. Are we allowing walkthrough videos? I initially thought only for things that could not be explained in text. Is there any concensus about this that you've seen from the other admins? For example, the video on this page: A Night to Remember. Should it be on the wiki? I removed it but my edit was reversed.15steps (talk) 03:15, December 6, 2011 (UTC)

I've done some further reading and taken the quest for knowledge into my own hands, trying to figure out where Sithis fits into the whole realm of Gods in the Elder Scrolls games. But I want to make sure I have my facts about the beliefs and legends straight. Reading the page "Sithis (Book)" under the paragraphs within "Content" it comes to my attention there is perhaps an interest spin on the idea of the Adera. First I need to know if I have a rough understanding of Sithis though. Sithis is basically not so much necessarily a being but something of a void and before him was nothing "stasis" (and or is he the same nothingness as well?) . Then to my understanding Sithis took the nothing and created the opportunity of endless possibilities (like ideas, with this also having the possibility never to materialize) letting them drift into the nothing and fade away gradually becoming nothing. Continuing in this fashion until one of these possibilities/ ideas "became jealous and did not want to die" than manifested itself becoming Anui-El (Akatosh) and "made friends" being originally other ideas/possibilities that manifested becoming as some mortals would call them "The Eight Divine". Thus disrupting the cycle and the natural order of things (in a sense defying Sithis) creating the first idea of life yet even more than that seeing as how they were "Immortals" I assume making the first creation of Life one without in fact death. Then the Adera basically took hold of every possibility (maybe even more so taking away the possibility of death) for there on wills, creating and generating "everlasting realms of imperfection". The Adrea created what the people of nirn know as the universe, again defying the natural order and Sithis. So Sithis created Lorkhan to "destroy the universe", however it seems that rather than destroy in the sense we might think of it, it however rather means setting back the natural order of things to the cycle (destroying immortality kind of). So Lorkhan deceived the Eight into thinking himself one of them; afterwards he spread the ideas of mortality and thus created Nirn in the process. Then this is where I tried to piece the rest of the puzzle together in the most logical sense I could based off the previous knowledge I had. Once the threat of mortality was created; reestablishing the natural order the Adrea probably caught wind of his "treachery" and tore out his heart casting him to earth however yet he was still successful in his mission of re-setting the balance closer to what the cycle once was... And depending of what you believe the Adera became part of Nirn as well basically meaning they lost immortality as well ?... Kinda sorta? Help please, the Green Mage NEEDS FOOD BADLY!

Minette Vinius[]

Why did you change my edit on Minetta Vinius? If you need a picture of the letter listing her as issuing the contract I can load that as well.

Hey! It was just because I can't remember her hiring thugs to execute the player (and even stranger since she's just a child :P ). If you can upload that picture proving it, I'd gladly undo the change :) Zluhcs  talk page  my edits  Elder Scrolls Wiki-chat
I uploaded the photo. Another user described the same situation under the talk button on the page. Thanks.
Good work uploading the image! Also, congratulations with your new wiki account here! :) Zluhcs  talk page  my edits  Elder Scrolls Wiki-chat


Indefinite protection against any edits by any non-admin on The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is too harsh. As noted on its talk page, there is additional information that needs to be added and contributors are unable to do so. Please reduce to allowing logged-in users to edit. Thank you. 02:17, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Wiki give-away![]

Oh boy! I, Alek the Drunk Gentleman on Steam, am really happy to hear that!


I have been wondering for a bit now, but, why is it that you have an orange username? The other admins are green, with patrollers being yellow.
