Re: Pantheon and Practices of the Ayleid

Rough draft of the Ayleid account of Convention, and the basis for a lot of the Edeis. I've taken your critiques into account and believe I've fixed up most of the issues with the pantheon when relevant here. If the direction I've went with this story looks good I'll start touching up the pantheon t...

Re: History and Culture of the Falmer

I think it would be interesting if the Falmer religion had some connection to the Nordic pantheon and the kalpic cycle, but with a more elven slant. What if instead of worshipping Auri-El, they worship something akin to Alduin? However, contrast with the Nords, they would have desired to awaken him...

Travelers Guide to the Ayleid

Collections of texts by authors of Ayleid Revival and Revisionist tendencies, targeting foreign or interested locals with texts counter to what they refer to as the 'Alessian Truth'. Ayleid Revivalists I imagine being a rather splintered group, half of which idealizing the pre-Daedric society and bl...

Miscarcand The original interior "Sel Vanua" plays little significance in the overall tone of this ruin, though "Morimath", or: 'Darkened Home' may prove effective in hinting toward the fate of the Ayleid, which I feel should be at least hinted toward more and more as Province: Cyrodiil continues. ...

Thanks for your thoughts, and no apologies necessary, this was a little lengthy.

Re: Collections on the Cleansing of the Fane

Will do, perhaps something close-by like Hame or Ondo? I'd like for the Canulus bit to remain relevant, to establish some more unsettling folklore that may surround Lake Canulus and the surrounding Mir, considering it was practically the enclave of the Alessians.

Editor’s Note: While few pieces outside the infamous ‘Cleansing of the Fane’ stood to account for this particular period of Alessian history, fewer detailed the historical events that led to the ravaging of the eastern Ayleid and the Nibenese adoption of the moniker 'Burning East'.

The pantheon and practices of the Ayleid altered, sometimes drastically, between city-states; however the traditional pantheon was that of White-Gold, which held to Eight Ancestor-Gods, roughly similar to that of their Alinor counterparts, and inspirational in the founding of the Alessian Pantheon. ...

This kind of sober neoclassicism hasn't really appeared anywhere else in Tamriel yet, as far as I know.

As for weird designs, let's leave most for Nibenese armor styles, which should have a lot of ceremonial aspect to them I believe. There, almost all bets are off and we could be much more creative.
