Re: Pantheon and Practices of the Ayleid

Edited the original post with my completely revised work, please let me know if there's any inconsistencies, as I've introduced quite a bit and am bound to have missed a sentence or two in review. Additionally, below is my concept for the Ayleid caste system, which put me over the word limit lol The...

Re: Culture and History of the Nedes

My take on the Dragon Cult, based on my own ideas, stuff Tristior has written, and conversations on Discord.

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...

Re: Collections on the Cleansing of the Fane
