【飞翔导读】都是1年前, 2年前, 3年前写的内容... 这些我在游侠欧美RPG区全都发过, 更多在我的文集里


以自己目前对上古世界观的认识写了以下文字,希望大家观看接下来总结一下诺德人的知名人物。

注:以下文字并非来自单纯的字面翻译,而是我自己对网上各种相关英文资料的归纳和总结,其中还有着不少本人自己的想法。


地理:

为什么叫SKYRIM??从英文的字面直接翻译的话,” SKYRIM“就是”天际“的意思。顾名思义,在这个行省中随处都是绵延起伏的山脉,而且山峰之高以至于快触碰到了天边,固然这是比力夸张的说法。但是在这个行省中确实存在着四到五座全大陆最高的山峰;其中最著名的,也是最高的一座山峰被人们称作”世界之喉“。但在此时,中央行省人类的命运却异常悲惨,在那里野精灵的贵族们奴役着大批人类并掌握着他们的生杀大权。其实Tamriel大陆上的人类最早是来自北方的Atmo流氓软件王陆(固然这里所指的人类并不包括红色守卫,因为他们是来自西面的Yokuda大陆),至于为什么他们认定Tamriel大陆上的”世界之喉“为自己种族的发源地,在这里我也说不明白。

行省的地理状态也就是山地极多,所以称它为”山地行省“一点也不外份(在TES的世界设定中,北方行省多山;而南方行省多森林,沼泽;中部行省则多平原和沙漠。这场战争一直持续了51年,到了 1纪元的420年才竣事。正因为帝国宗教揉杂了许多精灵信仰的成份才会使Akatosh的形象在两种宗教中以不同的姿态出现。在好久以前,诺德人居民通常把定居点设在悬崖之上,俯视着峡谷。这也和当时行省内恶劣的情况有关:北部不时有着Akavir军队的骚扰,而行省东部则有着诺德人的死敌---黑精灵,西部则有着强大的高精灵家族,在行省内部调皮多变的雪精灵也不会给诺德移民带来安宁。

这些人类即是在精灵纪元晚期被精灵军队俘获的人类奴隶的后代。固然到目前为止,不少山崖之上的定居点并没有被抛弃,特别是在和晨风行省交界的区域,那些诺德人们还时常保持着警惕,因为他们了解他们的对手黑精灵也是一个强悍好战的种族。

历史:

诺德人比力痛恨精灵一族(诺德农民把收成不好,瘟疫蔓延等天灾人祸全都算在当地雪精灵的头上),这也和当年他们的祖先初到Tamriel大陆的遭遇有关。。发明老外写的小说 做成游戏 引来那么多粉丝。这也是整个诺德人帝国衰退的过程。通过几百年的不断征战,在第一纪元的143年,诺德人国王Harald终于征服了整个SKYRIM地区并建立了SKYRIM王国,这也是历史上第一个人类王国。所以,在一个被后来人类称作“泪之夜”的夜晚,精灵军队对人类移民展开了突袭,杀死了几乎所有人类并摧毁了所有人类的定居点,只有 Ysgramor和他的两个兄弟最后得以脱逃并回到了Atmo流氓软件王陆。

现在还不明白当时到底有多少人类被精灵屠杀,但可以肯定的是有很大一部分人类居民被精灵俘获并成了奴隶,随后他们便被押往大陆的心脏地带和西边的HIGH ROCK行省,成为了如今帝国人和布莱顿人的祖先。在经历了阿谁血腥的夜晚后,人类对精灵的仇恨种子便深深地种下了。不久之后,英雄Ysgramor带着他部下的500名同伴回到了Tamriel大陆,在几场激烈地厮杀后,他们收复了原先的失地并在此重新建立起了定居点。在北方的移民不断地到来之后,诺德人在Tamriel大陆北部的势力也越来越大。一开始,人类和精灵的生活还算融洽,但人类移民不断的抵达以及人类人口快速地膨胀使得精灵们孕育发生了危机感,他们害怕自己的主体地位被人类所取代。过了短短的27年,SKYRIM王国又征服了整个晨风行省和HIGH ROC行省的大部分。至此,人类王国控制了几乎整个北方国土,人类第一帝国建立。

从上面可以看出,在早期历史上人类和精灵族的较量最后由人类胜出。1纪元240年,这是个人类历史上最辉煌的时刻之一;诺德人建立了人类第一帝国,控制了大陆的整个北部地区并对精灵一族给予了扑灭性的打击:北方地区的雪精灵在此之后便消失了,有人说这是诺德人屠杀所至。行省的居民诺德人经常自称是”天空之子“,因为他们信赖在世界之喉上,天空用自己的呼吸创造了人类,所以这里是人类最古老的诞生之地。但到了第一纪元的中期,随着中央人类帝国的崛起,不少诺德人都放弃了山崖之上的乡村而来到峡谷之内设立定居点;这样,温暖的峡谷气候便可以使得这些居民在峡谷内种上各种农作物,以更好地维持生存。不外在第一纪元的242 年,Alessia,一位被称为是“奴隶女王”的人类向导者领导着人类奴隶开始了抵抗野精灵贵族暴虐统治的起义运动。在北方人类第一帝国的支持下,在1纪元的243年,代表野精灵政权的白金塔被起义军攻占。这样,中央行省的人类政权也被建立,中央人类王国也成立了上古卷轴翻译及心得作品。这样,在北部,中部都建立了以人类为主导的国家政权,人类也从一开始的弱势群体发展到了主导整个大陆的最强力量。在这里,诺德人的作用是不可以轻忽的上古卷轴翻译及心得作品。与此同时,在HIGH ROCK行省的布莱顿人的势力也在诺德人帝国的庇护下垂垂强大,并逐渐超过了当地的高精灵。

此时的诺德人势力可以说是方兴未艾,但在126年之后的1纪元369年,随着诺德人国王Borgas殒命(Borgas国王在Winterhold城被一群变身了的木精灵所暗杀),随后整个帝国便陷入了混乱的局面并爆发了争夺王位继承权的内战,这就是著名的“王位争夺战”。玩过上古卷轴3晨风的朋友一定记得那多山难行的瓦丹费尔岛;在纬度上晨风的瓦丹费尔岛和这个诺德人行省是雷同的)。这场战争对诺德人帝国带来的影响也是巨大的:在这51年战争中,西边的HIGH ROCK行省乘机摆脱了诺德帝国的控制;东边晨风行省的黑精灵则与矮人族联合把留在东方的诺德人赶回了SKYRIM上古卷轴翻译及心得作品。至此,诺德王国元气大伤以后便再也无力重新夺取晨风和HIGH ROCK了上古卷轴翻译及心得作品。在人类初到Tamriel的时候,Tamriel的主体居民是精灵一族。从发展到辉煌再到末落,一共是277年。

宗教:

讲完了SKYRIM的历史,接着要说明一下该地区紧要居民诺德人的宗教信仰。从此以后,Lorkhan便脱离了神性:他的心脏被埋在了红色山脉之下;他的身体化则作双月。我们最熟悉的就是帝国的九圣灵,其实当初帝国的八圣灵宗教是以诺德人宗教为基础并揉杂了不少精灵族信仰的身分,成为新的帝国宗教。在帝国的九圣灵中,主神即是Akatosh(时间龙神);而在诺德人的宗教中,Akatosh就是Alduin,又被诺德人称作“世界的吞噬者”。诺德人信赖Alduin (也就是Akatosh)吞噬了上一个世界而开始了这个世界,它既被认作是时间之神,也被认为是灾祸的带来者:一个严酷,可怕的神灵。在这里要说明一下:为什么Akatosh的形象会在帝国九圣灵宗教和诺德宗教中以截然不同的两种情势出现呢?

前面我们说过:”当初帝国的八圣灵宗教是以诺德人宗教为基础并揉杂了不少精灵族信仰的身分“。在行省的极北地区是整个大陆最北的海岸线,固然在这里通常笼罩着大量的积雪;东部Akavi流氓软件王陆的军队或者海盗会经常性的打击这里的定居点和城市,而强悍的诺德人居民却一次次地将他们击退。而他却在凡人世界中形成了化身并领导着人类进行抵抗精灵的斗争,所以说他是人类的救世主一点也不为过。所以精灵们(特别是高精灵,因为黑精灵的信仰已经有所改变)一直特别痛恨Lorkhan而崇拜Auri-El(也就是Akatosh);有资料说明,在神秘纪元中Auri-El一直领导着先代精灵们与”Lorkhan的军队“战斗并建立了第一个先代精灵国家,随后Auri-El便回到了精神领域永久庇护着精灵一族。

但在神秘纪元时,和先代精灵们战斗的”Lorkhan的军队“到底是什么呢?我在这可以肯定地说,Lorkhan的军队就是人类。精灵们痛恨 Lorkhan是因为Lorkhan创造了凡人世界从而把精灵们所禁锢;而人类则特别敬爱Lorkhan,因为正是他的创世行动才使得人类能够诞生在这个世界。在诺德人的宗教中Lorkhan就是Shor,一个被所有诺德人所敬仰的嗜血战神;在黑暗年月,Shor一直领导着人类对抗精灵族的压迫。所以 Akatosh可以说是精灵族的主神,而Lorkhan才是真正的人类主神。(注:这里还要提一下虎人族的宗教信仰,在虎人族的宗教中Akatosh又被称作龙猫之王,他曾经在第一纪元抵抗过Pelinal Whitestrake对先代精灵的屠杀,因此在这里也可以看出Akatosh一直站在精灵族的一边)。

有记载表明,Lorkhan欺骗了众神创世后,因为创造的世界极不稳定而且泯灭了众神过多的能量所以愤怒的众神把Lorkhan撕碎并把他的心脏掏了出来并扔在了红山底下,而当时掏心的正是 Akatosh。诺德人的宗教信仰和精灵族有很大的不同,和帝国人以及布莱顿人的宗教也不一样。在高精灵的宗教中, Akatosh就是Auri-El(先代精灵之王);高精灵一直认为精灵族的祖先是AEDRA神族,当年创世神之一的Lorkhan欺骗了众多AEDRA 神而创造了现在这个凡人世界,从而使得精灵们的祖先从精神领域堕落而被凡人世界所禁锢。诺德宗教中除了Alduin(也就是Akatosh)和Shor(Lorkhan)这两大神外,还有诸如Dibella(俏丽之神),Mara(爱之女神),Kyne(人类之母,Shor的老婆),Ysmir(北方巨龙),Mauloch(山地恶棍)等等。其中Mauloch是兽人的战神,兽人也是诺德人的传统劲敌;而Ysmir则可以理解成第三帝国皇帝TALOS;爱之女神Mara在这里则是人类之母Kyne的婢女(在帝国九圣灵宗教中Mara则是人类之母)。

人物等:

上面大致地讲了一下诺德人的宗教很多图片看不到,希望楼主修复。。起首最有名的即是上面提过的Ysgramor。Ysgramor领导了人类第一次登上 Tamriel大陆建立了人类第一个城市,他也发明了人类最早的书面语言:他以人类的北方语为基础,并借鉴了精灵语的语法。所以他也被认作是第一位人类历史学家。后来的国王Harald是Ysgramor的第12代子孙,他统一了SKYRIM行省,为以后的诺德人帝国打下了坚实的基础。而后来的第三帝国皇帝TALOS(TIBER SEPTIM)也曾在SKYRIM的”世界之喉“上学习了”暴风之吼“。(现在对TIBER SEPTIM的身世还有争论,有的学者说他来自北方的Atmo流氓软件王陆;还有的说他来自HIGH ROCK行省)上古卷轴翻译及心得作品。

目前,SKYRIM作为Tamriel帝国(第三帝国)的北方边疆,由诺德人组成的帝国军队在行省的北方和中部驻扎,尽力保卫着中央帝国行省的安全。诺德人天生善战,并且比力看重战斗荣誉,所以参加帝国军队以夺取个人荣誉是他们最好的归宿。在山谷的乡村里,老人和孩子们占了大多数,因为年轻人大都参加了帝国军队上古卷轴翻译及心得作品。对付中央行省来说,SKYRIM是他们最好的屏障--------因为在这里有着勇猛的诺德战士,易守难攻的山间碉堡接下来总结一下诺德人的知名人物。接下来总结一下诺德人的知名人物。所以SKYRIM行省又被称为”帝国之盾“。

前段时间买的上古官方小说,题目是"地狱之城"(The Infernal City),最近有些闲余时间于是断断续续把它看完了..总的来说是比力短的一本小说, 总页数才288页, 而现代普通的欧美奇幻类小说一本普遍是400页以上...该书作者是职业奇幻小说和科幻小说作家, 写过"星战:新绝地教团"等系列小说..

先来说说这本小说的意义..这小说发生的时间是设置在上古卷轴4之后的大约40年..而上古卷轴的官方小说筹划有2本, 这是第一本..而这两本小说很有可能就是相连上古卷轴4和上古卷轴5之间的桥梁..因此了解这本小说的背景和事情对展望之后上古卷轴5的内容照旧有帮助的..





上古卷轴4的结局就是"OBLIVION CRYSIS"的竣事, 皇帝马丁的自我牺牲换来的恶魔DAGON的溃退....但虽然"OBLIVION CRYSIS"竣事了, 但这次危机留给整个帝国大陆的创伤却是永久的:

第一, 马丁牺牲了.所以帝国没有了皇帝, 而上古4主线剧情竣事后整个帝国(至少在中央行省Cyrodiil)的事务暂时是由元老院来主持, 但这种情况肯定维持不长..

第二, "OBLIVION CRYSIS"中, DAGON的恶魔军队血洗了整个帝国大陆, 除了上古4游戏里涉及的Cyrodiil行省外, 其余行省遭受的破坏更加严重...这也加速了整个帝国在"OBLIVION CRYSIS"后分裂及走向殒命....


公然, 在官方小说里, 也就是上古卷轴4的"OBLIVION CRYSIS"发生的40多年后, 帝国的确发生了剧变..确切的说原来上古4里存在的帝国已经殒命....而取而代之的是各个行省的独立, 以及新Cyrodiil帝国的形成..

书里提到的几个行省情况如下:

亚龙人的BLACK MARSH(黑沼泽)行省已经不受帝国管理. 在旧帝国(上古1---上古4中的帝国)倒塌后, 亚龙人把渣滓的帝国势力彻底的赶出黑沼泽行省并成立了独立的王国政权..

虎人的Elsweyr行省也实现了独立..原先的虎人的首领mane被暗杀, 凭据书里的描述, 在Elsweyr行省应该还存在多个并存的虎人王国.

中央行省Cyrodiil(也就是上古4所在的地方)则被新兴的Cyrodiil帝国管理,目前皇帝是Titus Mede..他和第二纪元末的旧帝国开国皇帝Tiber Septim大帝类似, 也是亲自征战慢慢统一原来分崩离析的Cyrodiil行省..而皇帝Titus Mede的最终目的则是统一整个大陆,和几百年前的Tiber Septim大帝那样重新建立一个Tamriel帝国...

黑精灵的晨风(Morrowind)行省最为悲惨..起首在遭受了上古4的"OBLIVION CRYSIS"后晨风的实力就大减...在"OBLIVION CRYSIS"中晨风行省受到的创伤是整个大陆诸省中最重的, 几个家族都遭到了扑灭性打击..而其中最尚武最擅战的雷杜兰家族则几乎被扑灭..后来则是来自西方的诺德人军队和兽人雇佣军入侵晨风的战争...

最后也是最严重的, 也就是悬挂在VIVEC城上空的"Ministry of Truth"突然下坠, 导致了红山又一次的火山爆发, 扑灭了大半个晨风地区:整个Vvardenfell岛(上古3的发生所在)成为焦土;北部的晨风大陆也被扑灭,;晨风的Inner Sea直到40年之后还一直是沸腾的.而南部晨风虽然损失不是很大, 但从黑沼泽行省却来了大量的亚龙人. 因为之前黑精灵强盛时一直歧视亚龙人, 还经常越界抓亚龙人奴隶,导致亚龙人对黑精灵的仇恨很深..这次晨风遭到扑灭性打击之后, 亚龙人就集体北上复仇, 他们进入晨风, 屠杀了大量的黑精灵幸存者, 而余下的一部分黑精灵则集体逃离了晨风大陆来到了北方的Solstheim岛(上古卷轴3血月的发生地)...

以上就是在小说里对这几个行省的描述.. 而其它几个行省在书里基本都是一笔带过或者是轻描淡写, 估计要细致的还得等第二部小说的到来..

下面在说下这部小说的最重点部分,也就是这个"地狱之城"(The Infernal City)..

The Infernal City的真名是Umbriel, 它是一个悬空的城市, 在这个城市里有它自己完整的系统,包括食品链,居民以及存亡循环等, 其实就相当于是一个小型的世界..

Umbriel里居住着各种奇形怪状的生物及人物..他们绝大部分都是出生在Umbriel, 然后在Umbriel里事情劳动, 直到殒命..他们的灵魂被网络,再重新诞生;然后再事情劳动, 再殒命, 再诞生.......就是云云循环....Umbriel里比力重要的一部分就是厨房,厨房负责的是制作食品,然后把食品分配给这些Umbriel居民以及居住在更高层的几个LORD(领主)..Umbriel里有多个厨房, 每个厨房之间会有竞争关系,甚至发生流血的战争..而给LORD(领主)做食品是最值细致的一部分, 因为这些领主的口味很叼, 食品一不合他们的口味就会惹怒他们,甚至给厨师带来杀身之祸..不同的领主又不同的口味, 而这些领主到底长啥模样??至少这本小说里没提及..

在Umbriel的居民都有自己不同的事情, 除了很大一部分在厨房事情外, 其余一部分有的则在底层网络食品, 又或者在SAMP(每个Umbriel居民诞生的地方)照看复活的Umbriel居民

但Umbriel这座浮空城市也不是完全与外界隔绝的, 它需要来自外界的灵魂来维持它的浮空及运作..所以它所到之地, 阿谁地方的居民及生物的灵魂都会被它所网络, 而剩下的只是一些具有打击性的行尸走肉..所以它也被称为"The Infernal City"..

Umbriel的由来:

至于Umbriel这座城市的由来, 也是有很长的历史...最早在晨风的VIVEC城, 因为VIVEC的失踪导致支持"Ministry of Truth"的力量不断流失, 为了防止"Ministry of Truth"的下坠, 一个叫Vuhon的黑精灵设计并制造了一个叫"ingenium"的类似于发动机的东西, 它可以阻止"Ministry of Truth"下坠但必需不断有新鲜的灵魂里支持"ingenium"运作..开始他们每天牺牲10个奴隶的灵魂来保持"ingenium"的正常运行, 但后来Vuhon找到了一个更好的解决方案: 他发明他的朋友Sul的女友的灵魂具有更好的相容性, 这样他们就不用每天牺牲10个奴隶了, 而运用Sul的女友的灵魂则可以维持"ingenium"连续运作几个月以上....

Sul是另一个强大的黑精灵, 他固然不同意用他的女友灵魂来满足"ingenium"的要求..于是他和Vuhon在"Ministry of Truth"里发生了战斗, 最后"ingenium"爆炸, "Ministry of Truth"急速下坠导致红山爆发, 而Sul和Vuhon也一起被卷进了OBLIVION的空间..而这个OBLIVION空间是属于DAEDRA王子Clavicus Vile 的.

在OBLIVION空间里,Sul看见了一个黑色的人影..这个黑色人影名字是"UMBRA"(就和上古4里的U姐同名), 这个黑色人影看见他们后随即把他手中的剑,也就是UMBRA剑投到了OBLIVION之外.. 原来UMBRA被DAEDRA王子Clavicus Vile 困在了这个OBLIVION空间里, 他试图逃离却失败了..但是这个UMBRA特别强大, 他的实力甚至靠近于DAEDRA王子Clavicus Vile, 他从Clavicus Vile身上抢夺了许多能量..然而他却一直无法逃离Clavicus Vile的领域...于是他便在Clavicus Vile的领域边缘建造了一个自己的城市, 把自己和Clavicus Vile的世界隔绝....

Sul和Vuhon在进入这个世界后, 就被UMBRA抓住并监禁了起来, 在那里Vuhon答应为UMBRA建造一个"ingenium"以便逃离Clavicus Vile的OBLIVION空间.UMBRA答应并释放了Vuhon, 于是Vuhon就开始运用UMBRA从Clavicus Vile那偷取的能量来制造"ingenium"和城市..不久之后Sul便寻机逃离了这个空间..

之后即是Vuhon和UMBRA建造Umbriel成功, 然后他们也逃离了OBLIVION空间来到凡人世界, BLAH,BLAH, BLAH....................


书里的紧要人物:

主角之一是一位17岁的布莱顿姑娘,名字叫Annaig, 她从小和她父亲生活在亚龙人黑沼泽行省最南部的Limoth城..她的好友是一个名字叫Mere-Glim的亚龙人,年龄应该和她相仿..后来她和Glim喝了飞行药水进入了Umbriel,并亲眼目睹了Umbriel经过并扑灭整个Limoth城的经过,,..无数人类和亚龙人的灵魂被吸走, 而他们则成为具有打击性的行尸走肉...

在Umbriel,他们被抓住并差点丧命...最后Annaig以她精湛的配药技巧得到了在厨房事情的机会, 而Glim则因为亚龙人天生可以在水中呼吸的特性被安排在SAMP事情..(这部分笼罩了起码10章内容)..


另一位主角就是皇帝Titus Mede的儿子----王子Attrebus Mede, 22岁.他在一次危难中被黑精灵Sul所补救, 于是他们一起以阻止Umbriel为目标向Umbriel进发..而Sul的真正目的则是复仇...途中他们路过 虎人的Elsweyr行省, 并帮助了一个虎人部落购买"月亮糖"..接着虎人部落护送他们继续路程...为了赶在Umbriel之前到达晨风, Sul带着他们从OBLIVION空间里行走以便更快到达目的地, 然而他们却被卡在了"猎人"Hircine的OBLIVION空间里...在逃离这个空间的途中, 虎人部落全部战死..接着他们便来到了晨风并看到了Umbriel.................后来他们被Vuhon抓住并束缚, 接下去就是Sul进入狂暴状态挣脱束缚..............

还有一位人物名字是Colin, 是类似于帝国特工组织的一个成员(和以前的Blade类似),调查策划谋杀王子Attrebus Mede的背后主谋, 涉及篇副不是很多..

然后本书就竣事了...



感觉这只是半本书, 毕竟结尾太草率了...看来第二本小说还要接着这个故事继续, 而不是新开另外的故事...



因此等第二本小说出来后, 再对上古卷轴5的剧情及世界做个综合的预测吧..

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Michael Kirkbrid就是MK..上古卷轴世界观的主设计者之一, 在上古卷轴3的开发过程中离开BETHESDA..在上古3晨风里他紧要设计VIVEC和VIVEC的36 SERMONS.

在上古卷轴4的制作过程中,BETHESDA还请了他写了多本上古卷轴4游戏书籍..虽然他不在BETHESDA,但他照旧参与了九骑士任务的设计和多本上古书籍的编写..

以下就是他写的关于诺德人的宗教神话历史文章, 成品比力早...但基本确定将影响上古卷轴5的世界观体系, 因为上古卷轴5里的紧要种族就是诺德人, 紧要背景是被冰雪笼罩的SKYRIM, 类似北欧....这篇文章只是其中的一个例子

此篇文章比力深奥, 如同VIVEC的三十六条教诲那样, 涉及TES世界的不少宗教神灵及历史, 只不外VIVEC的三十六条教诲紧要是晨风黑精灵的历史及宗教, 而这篇紧要描写诺德人的..建议熟悉上古卷轴世界观的人阅读





The Seven Fights of The Aldudagga


Fight One, "The Eating-Birth of Dagon"

These were the days of Hoag the Greater, born in a boot...[Long after] the two bells [of the All-Maker's Goat] rang out their clamouring, calling the end of days again in Sarthaal and the world, and Alduin's shadow was cast like carpetflame on east, west, south, and north...[he was] epoch eater. For as far as any man's eyes, only High Hrothgaar remained above the churning coils of dragon stop.

And Alduin said, "Ho ha ho."

But, look! Seven more mountains remained through Mereth like Hrothgaar and the Leaper Devil King (a kindly leaper demon, to be sure, but their king) jumped across the nilphony swirl. He came to Alduin (who always eats Nords first) and said, "Wait, wait, wait! Wait! It is not time to destroy the world yet!"

To which Alduin roared and laughed and said, "King of Leapers, you always bounce up to me around this time (for you are one of the only spirits that can last til my last bite) and shout, 'Wait!', but I never do and I will not now. Leap up to Hrothgaar's top and wait awhile longer in little dignity. The two bells have went 'Gong! Gong!' and that means the kalpa has turned."

The Leaper Demon King knew all this was true but still he said, "Wait, first and last of spirits, the kalpa-turning is brought too soon and I can prove it! Look over there on top of Red Mountain. See the Greedy Man waving his arms?"

Alduin swallowed more of Mereth (this was the destruction of Njorvela and Teed County) and looked over. Indeed the Greedy Man was waving his arms as if to tell the time-eating dragon to stop. Alduin snorted gruffly (a few farms shot out of his nose but he caught them with his tongue and pulled them back into his mouth, for he eats it all) and said, "And the Greedy Man always waves his arms about around this time as if to stop me just like you. It is almost as if you two work together to delay me. Is that what this is? Is some other low spirit hiding portions of the world while you two do this thing? Is this why the kalpa-feast always takes a little longer than it did the previous time?"

And then Alduin looked hard into the eyes of both the Greedy Man (far away) and the Leaper Demon King (close up), one of them for each eye of his own, and he knew it was so. These two spirits gulped big, and were caught.

"Oh crap," the Greedy Man said, "He knows my bargain with the king of leapers, I'd better hide under my mountain!" but he thought and said all this too fast and, without thinking, hid under his mountain even though its base had already been eaten and so it wasn't all still there. (This is how the Greedy Man became trapped both in and outside of kalpas.)

"Oh crap," said the Leaper Demon King, "You have found us out, World-Eater! Yes, just after the two bells of the All-Maker's Goat sound the Greedy Man and I and our servants hoard bits and bobs of the world so you can't eat it all. And when the world comes back we sort of just stick these portions back on and so that's why it is all bigger and bigger for you to eat each time. But it wasn't my idea! The Greedy Man hates you so much and it was his idea to finally trap you one kalpa when it was all much too big and so you would explode out from your belly and die so that the world would never have to die again!"

Alduin (whose stomach was hurting because it was a little too stretched, which had never happened before, and now he knew why) grew furiously angry and boomed out, "You stupid little f*cker, do you even know what would HAPPEN if that happened, my dying and being unable to eat and the kalpa left to run forever? Why do I even ask, you who are a little low spirit whose only real power is jumping around? It is the Greedy Man I should really be mad at!"

And the Leaper Demon King saw a possible way out of this mess for himself but he nodded too eagerly, saying "Yes, yes, yes! Yes!" and the dragon knew that any mercy he might give to this little demon would not result in any true learning. So he cursed the king of the leapers, calling him Dagon, saying:

"The Greedy Man has already f*cked himself up good, hiding inside something that didn't exist anymore, but you: you I curse right here and right now! I take away your ability to jump and jump and jump and doom you to [the void] where you will not be able to leave except for auspicious days long between one and another and even so only through hard, hard work. And it will be this way, my little corner cutter, until you have destroyed all that in the world which you have stolen from earlier kalpas, which is to say probably never at all!"

Dagon (no longer a Leaper Demon King) screamed, "Please no! We have stolen from you so much and crammed it all back on in the craziest of places that it will take forever for me to regain my jumping kind of happiness! Especially if I can only come back to this world through auspicious days long between one and another that also require rituals! I beg you not to do this, O Aka! I beg you one hundred thousand and eight times!"

Dagon did as he said, begging Alduin Time-Eater to reverse his decision one hundred thousand and eight times, and halfway through this number Dagon shut his eyes tight to really mean it and then three-quarters through this number he began to shout his beggings to really, really, really mean it, but when he was done begging Alduin was not near the mountaintop he stood on.

In fact, after many looks east, west, south, and north, and seeing only the churning dragon stop around him, Dagon realied that at some point when he was begging with his eyes closed that Alduin had eaten him, mountaintop and all, and he had not heard the big chomp because he had been begging too loud. And he knew that the last world had been eaten entirely, except for its stolen portions, and that when the new kalpa began to form The Greedy Man (who never stayed trapped for long) would begin sticking these stolen portions back on in the craziest of places, and that he himself could never jump again until all was put back right.

He also knew that the name of "Dagon" would no longer be that of a kindly leaper demon but one who would destroy and destroy and destroy whenever he could find some small escape [from his home in the oblivion]....
Fight Two, "How Herkel the Fool Became a Clever Man"

These were the days of Ysgrim... [whose] breath was weighted with power sounds....

...[after] many nights, the destruction of Sarthaal finally saw fit to stop in its burning and the snows were happier. [Ysgrim] shook his head, saying to his thanes and war-wives, "And once it is buried again, who will remember its halls and mighty sights, like the fountain of voices or the tusk-house where Jarl the Tongue shot from his mother's womb yelling profanities that only adults should know? Who would stop the snows?" (For no one can stop the snows.)

And so his Host moved east and north and east again, a long traveling, and passing Hrol'Dan (the first one) there was an idea that came to Herkel the Shield-Fed. "Lord, I have thought of an idea that might keep our memory of Sarthaal and its mighty sights alive, and not only in song. Would it suit your purpose, though we can never rebuild it, that if a Nord could say a small prayer then the gods would reveal the city in its former glory?"

Now Herkel [had] never been a Clever Man, so Ysgrim looked at him cockeyed. What Herkel was saying was magic talk but sometimes ideas grow where there has never been soil before. (This is a gift of Kyne called [inspiration].)

Finally, Ysgrim said, "You may speak, Herkel, and we shall listen."

And now all the shield-thanes and war-wives were looking at Herkel, for all of them would indeed like to see lost Sarthaal again and its mighty sights, if only by an illusion brought by prayer. So Herkel began:

"Well, Sarthaal was destroyed all right, the elves made sure of that!" (Here everyone present made the customary curses.) "And even though I threw up ancient shields from my gut like hurling discs that killed their first rank and Eriksdotter here danced the icicle-curtain dance and killed their second rank and Broga here mountain-farted and killed their third and fourth ranks (that was funny) and Vjevaka here rolled auspicious numbers on rune bones and killed their fifth rank and Haljor here... [at this point Herkel recites a deed for each of the "six hundred and some odd" Nordic warriors that were assembled]... and you, my king, even though you killed by yourself the five-thousandth rank with Olendrung, even after all of these things, the elves still kept coming! And, yes, we lost in the end and that losing cost of our dearest of cities and this is how come we are freezing our asses off on this long traveling...."

Now at this point, Herkel the Shield-Fed had talked so long that he needed to stop. It was a [great thing] that he had talked so long at all in all the cold, but his belly was on fire [from even just reciting all their deeds], and so he was able to almost complete his thought. But look! The other Nords had frozen to death while he was talking. (This is why it is now polite to interrupt whenever you are cold.)

"Oh crap!" Herkel said, "I have talked so long I have killed all of my fighting friends and even my king! [They were] bound by oaths to hear me out and now the destruction of Sarthaal is truly complete! Oh, I am a fool to think myself a Clever Man full of magic talk! See what talking too much does?"

But sure enough Dagon (who had heard his name) showed up and that old Lord of Misrule laughed and said, "What a grand, grand f**k up you are, Herkel Shield-Fed! See now, you have done what whole endless legions of elves could not, and by that I mean to destroy utterly the Host of Hoary King Ysgrim!"

And Herkel began to weep and supplicated himself before Lord Dagon, saying, "O Ruler of the Firestorm and the Howling Winds, O Gigantic Prince of All Things Harmful, O Dagon the Wicked One Who...hey, wait a minute! How are you even here? This is not one of your summoning days!"

And Dagon laughed again, saying, "No sh*t, Herkel, but all that bloodletting and fire at Sarthaal was enough for me [to pierce the veil of the oblivion]! All that whispering into elvish ears sure did the trick!"

Herkel Shield-Fed now looked at Dagon cockeyed and said, "Wait, it was you who sent that horde of elves who, though pierced to their five-thousandth rank, would not be stopped?" to which Dagon responded, "Of course! Though it was easy, as they hated you anyway, but yes, yes, it was I who stoked the fire in grim dreams and mirrors, which has only now saw fit to stop burning! Oh well, now I'm off to enjoy my stay! Who knows how long I have before Alduin notices that I've escaped his trap again?"

But while Dagon had been saying all this, Herkel had broken [the hammer] Olendrung off of frozen Ysgrim's belt. And filled with renewed anger he struck the Lord of Misrule upside the head. Dagon fell over into the snow with a great flumph, unconscious. And Herkel was about to bash the devil's brains out when he thought: "Wait a minute! Killing the kings of [the void] never really lasts forever and I'm not sure if even Olendrung could do more than knock him out! Oh, Dagon will be so mad when he wakes up and destroy even more now! I must find a way to get out of this mess! What can I, a fool as can be determined by recent events, do now to put two and two together?"

Herkel then had an idea and began to drag the frozen bodies of his king and his fighting friends back to the ruins of Sarthaal west and south and west again. He had to carry them in twos for they were stiff as ice and would not bend for easy lifting, so everytime he came back for another pair of them Herkel hefted Olendrung and smacked Dagon back to sleep. Finally, after all of these labors (three hundred and some trips back to Sarthaal), Herkel dragged Dagon to the edge of the ruins. Dagon was still out like a light, so Herkel had time to complete his plan.

He prayed to Alduin the dragon of time, who was the greatest enemy of men, for he ate the world everytime he woke up. But Herkel knew that Dagon was a greater enemy to the dragon, so he put that in his prayer, saying, "Mighty time-eater, I am Herkel the Fool, and I am truly a fool. But I fought bravely at the fall of Sarthaal which lay now at my feet, as does the one responsible for its destruction. I do not ask you to wake up, Alduin, for that would ruin more than Dagon will (and that's a lot now that I keep hitting his head)! And I do not ask you to bring my fighting friends and king back to life, for that is the province of your brother and even I'm not foolish enough to ask all that! And I do not ask you to turn back time, for that is against the laws of all the gods! But I do ask you for a little help, even though...." (And here he kept praying.)

And Dagon woke up with a hideous headache to look down on Sarthaal and look! It was not destroyed at all! There were its mighty sights, its halls, its fountain of voices, and the tusk-house of Jarl the Tongue! And arrayed before it was the Host of Hoary Ysgrim all lined up for war!

"Oh crap!" Dagon said, shaking his hurt, hurt head, "I have come too early, for the destruction of Sarthaal has not occured, for I see the army of King Ysgrim waiting for the elves that I am sending. What could I be thinking, to come before the veils are pierced? Even the laws of trickery would not help me if I did that!"

So Dagon vanished back to his prison [in the void]. And, with him, so did the glamour of old Sarthaal vanish, for it had been brought only by a prayer of Herkel the Fool, who stood among the frozen warriors lined up as if for battle. His plan had worked, though it did little to comfort him, and he said goodbye to his fighting friends and his king and as the snow came in to bury Sarthaal forever, Herkel climbed the steps of High Hrothgaar, where he became at last a Clever Man.

(And this is why sometimes if you pray hard enough, you can still see Sarthaal outside of only memory and in its fullest glory.)
Fight Three, "The Snow Whale and the Dirtbird"

These were the days of Reddotter, who surpassed her father in shield-biting...

[And it came to pass that] a strange thing happened: Alduin the World-Eater, who sleeps between the [kalpas], had a disturbing dream, and he roused slightly, but not enough to bring ruin, and, heavy-lidded, he went back to the [age-wait]. But he yawned just slightly beforeso, which he had never done. And thus was born the Dirt Patch Which Does Not Gather Snow.

Now this place cannot be found on any map of Skyrim, and not because we Nords are shoddy in our cartography (we crossed the Cape of Tears, after all, and marked the passages, which even the Devils in the east use still)…for you see, it is a thing that should not be, a small world-destruction that is more hiccup than intent, and so the Dirt Patch moves about, which caused all manner of trouble (and everyone knows that story) until Fjork Beard-to-Toes of Throat Mountain used a [voice spell] to contain its jumping around mainly to the west.

(Which still sometimes causes trouble for the farmers of the Reachmen, ha ha ha.)

Anyway, after many years, and like all things, some animal life decided that they liked to live best of all in a particular place at the expense of all other places, and some chose the Dirt Patch, and these were birds. (Who can tell why birds do anything?) We do not know where they came from, but came they did, and always, always they managed to find the Dirt Patch and make their homes in it, burrowing down deep in its soft earth, where they made their nests…. (This is not normal bird behavior, I know, but who can tell why birds do anything?) [Only] to get up and out and fly again when the Dirt Patch vanished to go find it once more. (This is why when you see a dirtbird flying north you turn south.)

Now one day one of the Dumbest Things Ever happened: the Dirt Patch ended up in the sky! Right over a mountain range! (No one can remember exactly where, but it happened.) And the dirtbirds made for it anyway, and began to dig their nests down into the hovering earth, only to fall out with consternation before flying up and around the Dirt Patch [to try again]. Pretty soon they found that they just could not build their nests (and one would think that something that makes no sense, like a big stretch of dirt in the sky, would even be recognized as nonsensical by animals that really make no sense, like birds, but there you have it) and they began a’chirping away all as one in a terrible and irritating lament.

So of course they attracted the snow whales.

Snow whales have been in Skyrim since [the return of Man], living at the tops of the highest mountains, singing in magic tones, jumping from peak to cloud and back again, spreading their joy-snow in horn-like triumph from blowholes. We used to hunt them, our best climbers braving the rocks and ice-sheets, carrying rope and hooked spears. They had much meat, these whales, and blubber, and fluids that made paint and rosewater for our women. The earliest hunters had no luck; spouts of joy-snow [from the whales above] would drift down from the clouds and turn the men goofy. They would laugh like happy babes, some getting so tickled that they’d roll back down the mountainside in big flumphs—which only begat more guffaws-- or begin to pat each other on the back or hug in the masculine style to reaffirm their affections and camaraderie; in essence, the joy-snow got in their heads and they just forgot what they were doing. Eventually, Huggert the Wrinkled Unto Unreadable, one of our Clever Men, made sure that the hunters remembered to occasionally hit one another out of the blue, or make lewd jokes of their respective wives or mothers or sons that had not yet shown promise, and steal and hide the shoes of their fellows, and to line the rims of their shields with wasabi so that, when they bit them, that they might ignore all happiness in fits of burning nose and choked throat. All of these measures availed them not, for the potency of the joy of the snow whales remained [unhindered by any attempt at anger], and its powder would inevitably reduce our hunters again to snickering children, who, when they saw themselves so war-laden in this state, made them chortle and jest all the more.

Lesson learned. We left the snow whales alone.

The dirtbirds, though, in their present bothersome sorrow, all trilling and chak chak chak, brought a herd of snow whales up and out of the mountain peaks, looking to see what the fuss was about. They were as surprised as anyone to find a plain of earth suspended in the sky, and soil–breasted birds flitting amok in hysterical despair all around it.

"Holy crap," one said, "I have never seen something this dumb." And thus the snow whales crooned to each another in their way, and some, driven to pity, spat great gales of joy at the dirtbirds to remove their dirge. But just as the Dirt Patch had been misenchanted to gather no snow, so were the fowl that had inherited it similarly immune. The feathered raucous went unabated.

One of the snow whales, a young bull that had only recently grown his mottles, jumped from summit to cloud and back again, twirling so that both of his eyes might see this unholy mess of things. And he snorted, and he remarked, "What we see here, my kin, is no doubt the insalubrious work of the Dagon."

Now one of the dirtbirds, a young maiden, heard this declaration and took pause from her horrible wailing and flew to the great eye of the bull and said, "What now is this about the Lord of Tumult and Foul Tempers, who is known far and wide as the mucker-upper of all things in this world, and whose treachery runs even unto the sons and daughters of the Tava?" (Tava is a heathen god. Of birds, no less.) But the bull whale splashed into the ice-covered precipice of the nearest mountain, ignoring her. However, since ice is harder than snow, the wide fan of his tail stuck out for a second longer than normal, and, unanswered, the dirtbird dived down and grabbed it with her beak. And this is how she followed the snow whale into [the oblivion].

The Clever Men say the realms of [the oblivion] are many, though some [limit] this number to sixteen. And there is not one that can count the endless avenues that run from one realm to another, for they change, and often, for they are as capricious in their natures as the demons that run through or rule them. Nevertheless, there is a strand to Coldharbour, which is the province of Molag Bal, and most icy beasts have touched or traveled it once, if only in nightmare, and it is perhaps by this and the will of the Gods that the snow whale navigated himself through the void that lay beyond the real world, the dirtbird behind him clamping her beak down hard and her shutting her eyes tight to the visions of evil around her.

[Thus it was that] the young bull made his way to the frozen court of the King of Rape, crushing up through the very fountain of Bal's courtyard, shattering the lewd ice sculptures that crowned it in the coldest of lusts. And before the soldiers could [muster a defense against] the snow whale, a brassy sound regaled through the court and covered it all in a fog of joy, which set them all to laughing, and it was hideous to hear. And by this sound did Molag Bal deign to rise from his throne and enter the courtyard, to confront the audacity of the bull of the northern clouds. "And just what the **** do you want?" he asked.

The bull eyed the Prince, and gave a bow as the older cows taught him, and started to say, "Mighty Lion of Evening, Vulgar and Low, Keeper of Coldharbour since the fall of Lyg, Destroyer of the Hearts of Men, I have come to--" but he was interrupted by the chirping and relentless admonishment of his stowaway, who had left his tail and flown directly into the Prince’s face. The dirtbird maiden’s angry diatribe is [too heinous and nasty] to even repeat here, but more or less she said, “"ne of your **** kin evidently **** our **** Dirt Patch, which is the only **** place where my people can build their **** nests and since it’s floating in the **** sky that’s **** impossible now, see, and so we cannot lay our **** eggs this season because of such an unnatural **** calamity and so we’ve been forced to wail and **** wail, you ****!"

To which the snow whale assented was the truth, adding only, "Which is, of course, annoying as hell to the rest of us up there."

The King of Rape took pause. It had been eons since anyone had spoken to him this way, and it had never, ever been a bird of all things. Bal thought for a second, and finally frowned, shrugging. "Well, first of all, what the **** is a Dirt Patch?"

And by turns the snow whale and the dirtbird told the story, and its details, and in his magnificence did Molag Bal know that this was indeed the dream-work of Mehrunes Dagon, his brother of razors, the only Prince who dared trouble the sleep of the dragon-eater, Alduin. But while loyalty between the rulers of [the oblivion] is tenuous, Bal saw no profit in upsetting the ways of his brother, and told his visitors so, adding a threat of terrible censure on them if they did not turn back immediately and without further insult. The dirtbird remained unsatisfied and (remember that birds make no sense) began to peck furiously at the Prince’s head, rebuking him and all his kind and the mischief they wrought.

Perhaps the snow whale misinterpreted this foolishness for bravery, or perhaps he admired that the dirtbird had come unbidden into the realms of the damned, or maybe it was an admixture of the two with a smidgen of the fondness that all flying things share for one another, but the bull knew that, at this point, he loved the foul-mouthed, unclean, imprudent dirtbird with all of his considerable heart. Before the King of Rape could swat her dead, he trumpeted the courtyard again with joy powder, hoping to send Molag Bal into a handicap of bliss so that they both might escape.

"Ho ho ho," Molag Bal roared, smiling, though none of it with joy. His aspect became so fierce that even the dirtbird maiden stopped pecking at his head, and she flew behind the bulk of the snow whale in sudden fright. The Prince of Coldharbour spoke: "You silly little snow whale, do you not know that there can be no joy for me? That long ago I gave up such things to the betterment of my rage? And while I recognize love between creatures that are unalike, I have built a bulwark against its joy and--"

"Wait wait wait," the dirtbird interrupted. "What’s all this about love between creatures unalike?" And if a snow whale could blush, [that is surely what] the bull did now. Even Molag Bal was taken aback, for he was sure in his heart that any maiden that would follow a man into hell did so only by token of love. For her part, the dirtbird left her hiding place and flew back into the demon prince’s face.

"Huh?" he said, blinking. "You two aren’t an item?"

"I’m a DIRTBIRD, genius," she answered, "And he’s a **** SNOW WHALE, get it? This isn’t above love, it’s about not being able to lay eggs in a floating stretch of earth, and it’s about your brother being a complete **** who needs to make things right. Or else."

To which the King of Rape merely raised an opulent eyebrow.

The snow whale cleared his throat [in earnest]. "Or else..." he started, unsure of himself. "... or else I will gather all of my kin," and at this he found his courage, "All of them, down to the last newborn cow, from all the mountaintops of Skyrim, and the clouds above it, and from every opening of snow there is in that land, and we will leave it. Forever."

Which was a confusing thing to Molag Bal, a Prince of Misrule, whose hatred was as bellows in his belly, and who had long since kept his delight of any form of joy under lock and key. And even the dirtbird turned from him to look on the bull, and she, too, simply did not get it.

Bal spoke, "And what would that matter to me?"

Now the soldiers of the Prince of Coldharbour had shaken off their fits of laughter, and took up their pikes again, and remembered their stations and their vileness, and they surrounded the fountain that the bull used as his threshold. And the snow whale’s blowhole was empty, leaving him defenseless to their approach, and maybe one could read this in his eyes, for Molag Bal began to smile wickedly, and the dirtbird gulped with fear.

"It matters to you," the bull said, "Mighty Lion of Evening, Vulgar and Low, Keeper of Coldharbour since the fall of Lyg, Destroyer of the Hearts of Men... it matters to you because my kin bring joy to the upper world, who have not yet given up such a thing for the betterment of their rage, and who welcome love and happiness and good cheer… as much as they fear the coming of ruin, or the color of betrayal, or the visitations of demons. These last are the tools of [the oblivion], and your lifeblood, and it is only through joy that the devices of your dubious employ are the more sweeter to you, yet which are nothing if visited upon those who know nothing but despair in the first place. It matters to you, Lord Bal, for how can you destroy the hearts of men when those hearts are already empty?"

And, with that, the snow whale sank back into the fountain from whence he came, but he left the wide fin of his tail up out of it for a second longer than normal. And the dirtbird took it within her beak.

When they returned to Skyrim, bursting out of the zenith snow, the snow whale and the dirtbird were met with only silence. Their kin were gone, both kinds, and with them, the noise of crooning and the cacophony of bird-lament. But the maiden felt the tug of the Dirt Patch in her senses, and she sensed that it was southward, and low, and she knew that things had been more or less put back right. She let go of the bull’s tail and flew up to his eye. "It has worked," she said, "Bal has talked sense into his brother, the Dagon. I can feel it in my breast."

"I suppose so," the bull said, "And I can hear my herd jumping this way through mountaintop and blue." And perhaps when she knew that the snow whale would soon be gone, having rejoined his kin, and perhaps because he had shown her a courage that was unalike as hers but as powerful, or maybe it was an admixture of the two with a smidgen of the fondness that all flying things share for one another, but the dirbird knew that, at this point, she loved the noble, unwieldy, ridiculous snow whale with all of her tiny heart.

"Where I live the snow cannot gather," she said in the lowest of voices. To which the bull nodded, and said, "And there is, of course, the difference in size." And, at that they smiled, and flew away from one another, and were welcomed back by their kin in songs of praise.

(And this is why when you see a dirtbird heading north that you stop... and look up at the sky before turning south. Sometimes, if you are lucky, you can see him, the bull of the northern clouds, looking for her, the maiden beloved of Tava, a heathen god that we begrudgingly admit is all right from time to time.)
Fight Six, "The 911th Cow"

These [were the days] of Anna Kuhlsdotter, who once led her cloud-sisters into victorious war against the Skald of Broken Books....

And of the Giants we speak little, even less to strangers, for their history is hidden in long loud power-shouts. At home, it is a pain in the ass to tell their stories and then clean all the things knocked down in the telling... and in a foreign hearth it is [just plain rude]. So we speak of them (for we must-- who does not honor their parents?) under the rim of the sky or, here, written on sheafs of pelt, for such is the mettle of their threat. This is [a song (or dirge, manuscript unclear)], then, of the threat of Giants and, like most, it involves painted cows.

[First, though] let us put two Powers in place, the Dragon and the Dagon, for this is also and foremost a Fight of Theirs Story [so such is proper]... [text lost]... the only one to have occurred on the Demon King's birthday. (No, that inglorious day-month will not be revealed here for it is dangerous and, yes, once, a very long time ago-- ONCE-- we were all tricked into celebrating it in a very big sissy-fuss where we were made to wear special hats.)

Dagon [it can be surmised] found some indefatigable lady-man wizard from the west to love him from [topside(?)] and thus-by work very, very hard in his witch-craft... [the demon lord] making warlock promises and whispering rewards of the unspeakable and mighty... appearing through shade or familiar in guises too small for the Dragon to notice that he was not in his entirety in [the oblivion] where he had been banished beforetimes... and perhaps happy (because birthdays ARE happy) and infectious with it enough to engender great industry, yet profane still in aspect to retain his stature among the eyes of the wicked from whence his followers always come (when they do not come from fools instead).

[And the warlock-in-love]... [text lost]... made a mad dance of it all as in the manner of the magic arts of the west [and] summoned his infernal master on this very auspicious day through crazed and love-wrought wizardry [that went beyond the mandate] of right summonings... whereupon the Dagon popped out of a blueberry pie.

"I didn't think that would work AT ALL!" he said, that old Lord of Misrule, and he began to praise the baker's craft in such great cackle and length that [the warlock he had taken as paramour] became jealous in the way of wolf-headed women (you know the ones).

"Pssh," Dagon said, "I, the Lord of Razors and Red-drink, King of Terrible Intent, Mehrunes the Prince of Four Dooms and One Paradise, I Who Commandeth 88 Legions Daedric... I just came out of a PIE, you swooning harpy! That is totally bat-*** insane!"

Whereafter he bit out the neck of the spurned warlock and played in the blood.

(This is why all bakeries in our village make "Shake the Dagon Out" part of their flour-whistling.)

Now the Dragon's role here is more subtle, and existed really only in the fear of a little farm girl in the highlands of Newkreath. For who does not fear Alduin the World Eater, and especially children, who always think they are the last to come for they are the newest to be? (And children, BEING special, perhaps are right and maybe it is only through their fears that [this kalpa] still survives, so we will not question it.)

Anyhow, her name was Aless (her father was fond of the South, and Ald Cyrod, and knew the stories of their famous and ancient Queen), and she had such a fear that any day now the Dragon would awake to eat up everything she ever knew that she became determined to do all she could [to protect it]. Naturally, she began to paint many, many cows.

Here is why: the Giants came from Old Atmora, up there across the Northern Ice back in the gone-to-twilight-now age of myth... and settled here in the Skyrim, and all along the mountain ranges of our coasts. (Yes, they are our true ancestors-- do not believe your aunt from the university-- and, yes, we were once as big as them-- as tall as THIS-- but that is another story)... [text lost]... and after [the Great Calamity] happened [the clan-things (peoples? tribes? Text seems to indicate mankind as a whole, though that is debateable)]... we were of a kind disrupted... and we Nords fell into fighting and drove our Giant-kin up unto the mountaintops [and we were a wicked-folk for many years]... [until all] things had changed forever. Once the Moot resumed [(unspecified) years later] things got back to a new semblance of normalcy and borders were redrawn and agreed with in beer-talk, and raidings of the merethlands took everyone's mind off old feuds, and pretty soon (well, not pretty soon but whatever) the Giants began to come down from the mountains again. And they were a bit different than we Nords remembered, or perhaps we had forgotten much, but they would not speak to us anymore-- they would only smile in their lazy way, stomp over, and take our stuff.

If we fought them, they roared louder than the Tongues of High Hrothgar, and brave steads would be blasted whole into so much paste, [chickens and all (?)]... [and] eventually we learned that if we left stuff out for the Giants, and painted this stuff brightly and with swirls (they love swirls) and stuck big signs up pointing to it all, they would simply take THAT stuff and not anything else and no fighting would be have to be done (not that what I have described was really fighting-- no one fights the Giants is the point). And that explains the Painting The Cows tradition, for as lazily-smiled as they are, so much that they seem that they wouldn't hurt a soul (ha!), the Giants eat meat and lots of it. Aless (remember her still?) thought to herself, "I am so, so afraid the Dragon will awake and eat the world-- ANY DAY NOW-- that I will paint every cow I see so as to summon all the Giants I can to beat up old Scaly Face, and beat him up really, really hard-- hard enough to knock him out and back to sleep!" (Aless had heard, as you have now, that "no one fights the Giants" and took it a little bit too much to heart.)

She began with her stead's herd, some four-dozens strong [with] two bulls (the old one broken off in a separate cattle-gate to stomp out his last days in complaint-- and Aless made her father swear not to kill this old bull for she loved him in the way children love the things others see as useless or spent) ...and yet by the seventh cow Aless had run out of paint. "I shouldn't have done so many swirls," she said, sighing. And that is when he appeared, the Dagon, drawn up in the stolen Nordskin of a Clever Man, come from the west by side-stepping [through the real].

"No," he said through his impressive bead-knit beard, "You did well. If I were a giant, these would be mighty fine looking cows to take. But why paint so many? [One a season per stead] is the norm."

Aless frowned up at Dagon-turned-Clever, and with no suspicion, for she was a child and they are taught to respect our [magic-men]. "Because I hate the Dragon," she admitted, immediately fearing admonishment. (It is not very wise to talk ill of Alduin at any time, especially in the presence of the Very, Very Wise.) She corrected herself: "Well, more like I hate the fear of him. I'm sorry for saying the thing before."

"Hmm," Dagon said, "Your fear is well-founded. The Time Eater comes soon."

"WHAT I SO KNEW IT" Aless said, grabbing her paint buckets and brushes [in a scramble], intent on going back to her hearth to get her play-dolls and kid-shields to sell them for more supplies. "I gotta go, mister, I need to summon the Giants REAL FAST and A BUNCH."

"Child," Dagon laughed, "You will never paint so many as that, given your little power. But, aye, your plan is a good one. Many Giants, really fast. Yes. That's smart. Now come with me. Kyne--" and at this name of the Sacred, the demon almost choked, "--she lends me the winds and I can walk us from one to another. And Tsun--" and at this Name Dagon finally did choke, coughing harshly but hiding it as age, "--he grants my craft-wit with provisions from the aether. You will have all the paint you need, and be swift enough to swirl every cow from here to Windhelm."

"That is SO cool!" Aless said, jumping. But by speaking of so many Gods [and the Heavenly Halls in which they live], Dagon had brought a horrible scratch to his throat. He coughed again, and at length, finally doubling over. Aless frowned again, this time with what looked like pity, and put her hand on his back. "You okay, mister? I believe you about all your magic, but maybe you should just rest. I can sell my play-dolls and get paint and just, like, run fast--"

"I'm fine, dear," Dagon said, waving her off, too harshly, and then [realizing he was frightful] found a composure, "And I am sorry myself for scaring you just then. It is only because I can feel the Age turning, and so am sick with the impending death of the World."

"Um," Aless said. "You're still being scary."

"Then paint the rest of these and let us move. You are brave, and worthy, but cannot run so fast as we need. We have cows to swirl and Giants to bring down from the mountains. Through their might only can we make the Dragon retreat back into slumber and thereby save all that we know." And soon then did the Dagon and the girl step into a wind [and disappear].

[Now] it can be guessed that Dagon was a lying sack of ****-- the Dragon wasn't coming at all and would be asleep til...[text lost]...which is far from now. But the Lord of Razors has ever hated the North, for it was here that he was born (after a fashion), and it was here he was cursed, and so on this, his birthday, he had determined that he would destroy all of the Skyrim and all the Nords in it. He indeed needed his little cow-painter to draw down the Giants (or maybe it only amused him to use one of our own, we cannot say), and so he [played her fear] for a fouler purpose: he knew that so many Giants come down from the mountains would cause the High King to think it war, and muster. And any war with the Old Fathers would undo us.

Now Dagon-as-Clever did as he said, wind'ng Aless from stead to stead, watching over her as she painted the cows at each, summoning [snow-fogs to hide her quickened labors], from Newkreath to Gant and the Uttering Hills of Jarlmung County, filling her buckets [in fast conjurations] and even blessing each cow in Kyne's name alongside her, coughing each time. By the 400th cow, his beard was hack-stuck [with sickness]. By the 650th cow, he would speak no more names wrought by the Gods. And it was by the 700th cow that the Dagon noticed that Aless was painting the swirls [in a different fashion], to which she explained, "Each county has a different Lookit Me Stamp," and frowning at him she asked, "But you know that, right?"

"Oh, right, right, indeed," he said, "Blame my ailment and our hasty mission. It has left me with a perplextion of the brain. Stamp away!" to which Aless smiled, "No problem, I'm getting tired, too. There, seven hundred and fifty-two! How many do you think we'll need?"

"At least nine hundred and ten," Dagon said, "That is a lucky number." (This is true.) And then they vanished [into the wind] again, coming out into Windhelm, fortress-lands of the High King. "We'd better hurry here," Dagon advised.

"Why?"

"Why what?"

"Why hurry here? You mean more than seven hundred and fifty-two cows in five hours hurry?"

"Um," Dagon said, feigning more sickness, "Because these are the king's cows and we have not the Special Royal Cow Painting Permits, nor the time to explain [the turning of the Age]. The Dragon is coming too soon for parley such as that."

And just as she started swirling these new cows (under cover of snow-curtains and in the shadow of the Thaneswall) Aless asked, "But why doesn't the High King know this already? Doesn't he have Clevermen advisors and Witching Wives to tell him? And the Queen, doesn't she have that six-pair of Scrying Eyestalks of Old Man Mora?"

"Who knows the way of kings and queens, little farm girl," Dagon countered, beginning to lose his temper and seeing now this always-questioning Aless as a turkey-leg in his stomach. But no, he thought, I can wait. [I can wait.]

Aless shrugged, painting the cows in what Dagon assumed was [the manner] of Windhelm now, and saying only, "I guess you're right, mister. But I'm named after a queen, a really pretty one, the books say." And [at this] Aless spoke of South Cyrod and its tales of mereth-kill by Men and heroes sent by the Gods, and Dagon's head began to swim with it, wind to wind and herd to herd in the Windhelmlands with the girl always talking and talking, for the demon hated the [lands of the Aleshut-tribes] nearly as much as our own but for different reasons, and just as he was about to let loose his rage (for that was his Base Nature), Aless spoke up, giggling with victory, "Nine hundred and ten with paint to spare!"

At which point, Dagon thought the deed to be done, and he began to grow fangs behind his beard.

"Holy crap!" Aless said, looking at her paint-covered dress. "We totally forgot the signs!"

"Huh?"

"In all of this crazy fast painting, mister, we forgot to stick up the Look Over Here signs! The Giants won't know to come! We really screwed this up!"

Dagon slid his fangs back in, for what she spoke was [true]. He sighed, "Yes. The signs. Totally forgot them. Crap."

"Tell you what," Aless said, "Take me back home. We can grab the signs I've made there and you can Tsun-them-up and make more and zip everywhere we've been to everywhere ELSE we've been putting them all up. And meanwhile I'll paint ONE MORE COW to make it nine hundred and ELEVEN. That's gotta be luckier than lucky, right?"

Dagon-as-Clever now frowned, for he wanted war soon, and said, "I suppose so. Really, what's one more cow going to hurt?" And [they stepped back] through the wind to Aless' own stead, whereupon she ran to the sign-sheds and retrieved as many as she could carry, dumping them nearly on Dagon's foot. Oh by the sixteen hells I'm going to eat this dumb girl, he thought, with WASABI! But he picked up the Look Over Heres and multiplied them unto a bigger bundle, shouldering them all.

"Night is falling fast, mister, you better hurry!"

And Dagon faded into the winds, dizzy with his plannings and smirkings and thinkings, stamping sign after sign at each herd of cows from Newkreath to Windhelm and all the places between, wishing himself another warlock-bite for all this trouble, finally growing out his four arms to make the goings-on faster, wind-step to sign-post, dreaming of [a tide] of Giants come down from the peaks of Skyrim to blast the Northmen away for all time, and time it was he lost track of, until he finally arrived back at the stead of Aless the Dragon Hater.

"Hi," she said, seeing Dagon's true form, "You totally forgot we painted every cow here at the beginning of all of this, you big dummy. So I painted this old bull instead."

And it was true, Aless had taken from its cattle-gate the bull she had begged her father not to kill and to which her father had agreed, and instead of swirls, she had painted [wings on it]. Before the Dagon's eyes this bull [transformed itself as in the manner of god-guiser magic] into Mor, the Bull of the South, Son-of-Kyne, and demiprince of All Winds.

Mor snorted through the hoop of his nose-ring and greeted the [King of Razors]. "Hello, Dagon. The prayers of children very seldom go unnoticed."

Aless said, "That means me."

Mor continued: "You are trespassing outside your mandated day of summoning, Lord Daedroth. Heaven is not happy of it."

Aless smiled and lifted up one finger, "One, you're NEVER supposed to badmouth Alduin in front of a Clever Man. And YOU didn't berate me." She lifted up a second. "Two, you can't even speak the names of the Gods without choking, and every Clever Man has wind enough in his throat to revere them without censure, involuntary or not." Three fingers, now four; five, and six with a second hand. "Then of course the swirls, which we Nords paint the same no matter whichever clan we belong to, because the Giants speak only ONE language and it's in our best interest to talk straight with them. I could mention several others, but you've guessed them all: the spell you suffered at the mention of my ancient namesake, whose story I peppered with sayings that are supposed to be repeated by any that are near as in the hymnal halls, and the Eyestalks of Say What Huh? that don't even EXIST which you just nodded your fake Clever head to, and--"

"I think, little namesake," Mor bellowed, "That he gets the point."

Dagon was fuming now, snow melting around his new-wrought hooves, stretching up and out into demon-skin, red like terror, ebon-armed and frothing. Aless stood her ground. Mor stamped twice, an [approval and a threat].

"You would have made my beloved proud with your courage," the Bull said to Aless, and to Dagon: "Stand down, Demon King, and go down. You will not win this day, even though it is crowned with the power of your first coming."

"WHAT NOW," Dagon roared, sending them both back with a [bellows-fire], "YOU ARE NOTHING TO ME, MORIHAUS HALF-SPIRIT! THE DAGON FIGHTS NOT THE SONS OF HEAVEN'S CONCUBINES BUT HEAVEN'S KING ITSELF."

"Yeah, sure," Aless giggled, "And how does that work out for you? Every single fight you have with the Dragon ends up with you losing, King Chump. And it will always be like that. Here, there, then, now, or in the future: the Dragon wins over you, as he wins over us all. I'm not afraid of that anymore. More importantly, I'm not afraid of YOU."

Dagon stepped forward, crackling now [with flame and old woe]. Mor bent his horns to the ready. Aless stayed where she was.

"I wouldn't do that, mister" she said. "Those swirls that I started painting as soon as we went a-wind'ng? They weren't Giant-Come-Shiny Swirls but hearth-warnings... that YOU were here. In the language of each clan, on all the cows they're looking at RIGHT NOW since you put all those signs up. That you're here-- right here, right where I asked you to return. I think pretty soon you'll start to hear the horns. And even you can't take on all the Sons and Daughters of Kyne, you *******."

And that's when they did hear [the horns of all clans], and the closest was as like a stormsong of thundernachs, for Mor was near, and he [was the issue of the Greater Sky]. And Dagon knew that where the horn soundings landed, the Tongues of High Hrothgar could step, and, when together, the greybeards could breathe unto being the ghost of Shor, which lay all Powers low [even in half-death].

"A curse on the house of Alessia," Dagon muttered before summoning himself a Gate to [the oblivion], for he knew his works were all undone, "And eight more on the Men of the Dragon. There will be an hour when--"

Aless leaned against her bull.

"Hey, Coughy," she said, "Shut up and go already. It's way past my bedtime."

And he did, missing the arrival of the hosts of Hrothgar and Newkreath, and the runners of nearby [Hjaalmarch], and, of course, the thanes of Aless' own stead, which included her father, all of which saw the farm girl in her messy dress leaning against the [Bull of Heaven], glorified in story and song since the days of our first dawn, and all afit for battle and confused [that it would not be met] and more still overcome with the blessings of the Skyrim by the Gods we hold aloft.

To which Aless could only answer: "It's a really long story, guys."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 现在的上古卷轴玩家很多都是由3代看始打仗上古系列的(固然还有不少新玩家只打仗过上古4),因此大家对上古系列前作应该不是很了解.所以我今天就要像大家来说明一下上古卷轴2的世界观背景,这样大家就算没有玩过上古2也可以对它的游戏背景有个充分的认识..今天我讲解的紧要方式就是放出我最近翻译的几本书籍,这些书籍全部都出现在上古2的游戏中,是我从上古2的众多游戏书籍中挑选出来的.从这些书籍中我们可以很好的了解上古2游戏的历史和文化.

好了废话不说,咱们先进入正题吧!

上古卷轴2游戏的发生所在就是在Iliac海湾地区.那边是Iliac海湾地区呢??HIGH ROCK行省的西南角,HAMMERFELL行省的西北角统称Iliac海湾地区.在这里有几个比力著名的邦国和地区,这在下文我会着重说明的..为了更好的了解这个地区,咱们先来看一下地图吧..............



PS:这图片是我百度空间的图片,大家只要点右键---查看图片就可以看见了...


起首我要向大家说明的就是大名鼎鼎的Daggerfall邦国.Daggerfall又被称作"匕首雨"是2代游戏的出发点.想要了解这个地区的历史高兴看一下以下这本书籍..

Daggerfall的历史 翻译者:YAHOOCOM

作者:Odiva Gallwood 翻译者:YAHOOCOM
现在我们有足够的考古学证据可以证明早在历史文本记载前的1000年就有一些人类的定居点出现在现在的Daggerfall城邦.而 "Daggerfall"这个名词则出现在一纪元的246年,指的是现在的首都附近的地区.那时,在Iliac海湾地区的北半边,也就是整个High Rock行省正被入侵的诺德人占领,随那些诺德人一起被带到High Rock行省的则是他们的粗野文化.那些诺德人在这个地区执行的第一个"文明"的举措就是人口普查---在那本被称为"众生之书"书籍的第933页就记载了以下的一段文字:

"在最高的悬崖的北部,众多沼泽的南部,众山西部,大洋东部的地域被称作DAGGERFALL.110个男人,93个女人,13个在8岁以下的孩子,58头母牛,7头公牛,11只公鸡,38头猪生活在那里".

在这次人口普查后的将近4000年的时间,Daggerfall的人口从最初的216人不知番了几番了.最后一次人口普查是在第三纪元的401年,在册人口就已经达到了11万之多.固然要查清一个确切的人口数据在目前照旧比力困难的,但Daggerfall的首都人口已经毫无疑问的超过了它的对手: Sentinel和Wayrest.

但这些还不能帮助历史学家们找到这个地区最初的名字.Daggerfall,其实这个名字起源于好久以前的一位酋长用一把匕首划定领地的故事;那位酋长扔出自己的匕首,当匕首落地的时候他就以匕首落下的所在划为自己领地的边境.固然,我们现在也可以了解到其它一些关于"Daggerfall"名字起源的传说.

我们从那本古老的"众生之书"里能看到Daggerfall的名字,就足以说明这个地区历史的悠久.那里生活着的人们初期紧要以打渔为生,但他们后来发觉了在陆地上养家畜获得的食品远比打渔要来的多.这样的转变使得他们能够获得更多的资源从而能在这片变革无常的土地上生活下来.

Daggerfall在Skyrim帝国的占领期间一直比力兴旺.第一纪元的369年,当Wild Hunt在Winterhold城中杀死了Skyrim帝国的国王Borgas后,Skyrim帝国的北部领地就卷入了一场争夺王位继承的战争. Skyrim帝国就此衰弱,而且失去了在High Rock和Morrowind的宽大领地.Iliac海湾的地理位置变的更加具有战略意义,而Daggerfall城邦则在此时扩大了自己的军事实力.

后来在Direnni家族与Alessia的革命军的辩论期间.Daggerfall有很好的机会可以演练自己的军队.Direnni家族的成员满是当地的布莱顿人,布莱顿人是不会轻易放弃自己的领地的.Daggerfall在那时成为了Direnni家族和它众多盟友的一个基地之一.一个名叫Raven Direnni的女巫利用自己的魔法在Glenumbria沼泽区击败了Alessia的军队,从而守住了最后的胜利果实,她也是Daggerfall城堡最早的居民之一.

几个世纪已往了,Direnni家族也在历史的长河中垂垂淡去,然而Daggerfall城邦则在一直的持续发展.在第一纪元的609年, Daggerfall的国王Thagore率领军队击败了Glenpoint的军队从而使Daggerfall成为了一个经济发达,文化鼎盛,军事力量强大的High Rock南部邦国.但Daggerfall并没有把这种优势一直保持到现在.

讽刺地说,Daggerfall在370年后又有一次成功的军事行动,然而这次军事行动使它失去了在Iliac海湾的贸易垄断权:Daggerfall和新王国Sentinel,以及Order of Diagna一起扑灭了兽人首都Orsinium后.散落在High Rock东南各地的众多兽人可以更方便的用河路来到达海湾.一个叫Wayrest的小村庄此时也开始成长,它就像一朵不惧镰刀的鲜花那样.在短短20年间,Wayrest发展成一个贸易量和Daggerfall不相上下的乡村.又过了20年,Wayrest已经成为了Iliac海湾地区中贸易量最大的城邦.80年后,Wayrest邦国正式成立.

SentineL邦国在第一纪元的时候在开始壮大的Wayrest邦国面前并没有什么表现.红色守卫是天生的战士,但他们此时却要学习经商,而且在他们的土地上还有众多的敌人以至于他们经常为人口短缺而发愁.在第一纪元,Iliac海湾地区曾被一种叫做Thrassian的瘟疫打击,将近1半以上的人口丧身.而后,Righteousness战争也夺取了许多人的生命.再后来,Akavari军队的入侵也给这个地区带来了巨大的浩劫.如果不是 Daggerfall邦国在此前就进行了1000年的军备的话,可能现在整个Iliac海湾地区都要说Akavari语了.

第二纪元来临了,就像在第一纪元末期那样,不确定的战争,暴动和瘟疫席卷了这个地区.Daggerfall, Sentinel和Wayrest也在继续扩大自己的军事实力和提升自己的经济地位.Daggerfall在海湾地区贸易中心的称号被Wayrest抢去;Sentinel和Daggerfall相互之间发生了军备比赛,它们为成为整个海湾地区的头号军事力量而相互较劲.

在第三纪元,Iliac海湾地域则继续被帝国政府认为是重要的地区.海湾地区的这几个邦国之间极少联盟(固然在第三纪元的第3世纪,这几个邦国曾经组成联盟对抗Camoran Usurper),但它们之间敌对的时期也不多,Daggerfall, Sentinel和Wayrest这三个国家一起经受饥饿,瘟疫,灾害的考验.最近发生在它们之间的一场被称作"Betony战争"就是一个比力典型的 Iliac海湾地区的区域战争:开始的暴力,对战争的热情....最后照旧被和平地解决了.

好,了解了匕首雨邦国后我们怎么能忘记那俏丽的WAYREST邦国呢??

Wayrest,海湾地区的一颗明珠 翻译者:YAHOOCOM[/size]

Wayrest是Tamriel大陆西部最繁荣的城市之一:它现在的俏丽和已往的光辉使得它在此地区闪着耀眼的光芒.它存在的价值远高于其它的High Rock城市-----没有一座城市能够持续为布莱顿文化作出云云巨大的贡献.Wayrest的天才子民们的灵魂一直在街头巷尾游荡;你可以在三角状的屋顶上,林荫大道上,带有馨香的的市场里见到他们的身影.Wayrest的居民特别欣赏他们的已往,但他们并没有像Daggerfall的居民那样沉迷于此.当你来到Wayrest的时候你会发明这是一座现代的城市,但城市的上空的魔法使得这座城市只有32个世纪的文明.

历史学家很难确认到底是几几年建立的Wayrest.一些人类的定居点在Bjoulsae河流域地区被发明,这些定居点可能起源于第一纪元的800年左右.Wayrest的商人和渔民们被一些敌对势力所包围:兽人的首都Orsinium的势力像毒芦苇那样,开始向北方蔓延;Akaviri的海盗和土匪则聚居在西边的海岛上.固然,Wayrest这个名字对人们来说并不神秘,在战斗过后人们都要经过Iliac海湾的东部地区,在这个位于Bjoulsae河流域的,名叫Wayrest的小渔村中歇脚.

在Skyrim帝国占领Wayrest的期间并没有人口普查的记载.在Daggerfall的历史文档中,有一封JoilE国王写给Order of Diagna的Gaiden Shinji的信件,里面有这样的一句话:"兽人一直以来都在危害着Wayrest的居民并且壅闭了通往中央地带的交通枢纽."这封信的日期为第一纪元 948年.

Wayrest真正开始闪光是在兽人首都Orsinium被摧毁以后,那一年是1纪元980年.那时,商人们组成了一种叫作"Masconian"贸易的方式以降低被海盗打击的机率.就在这个时期,Wayrest已经完全占据了Bjoulsae河流域的两岸.一个成功的商人家族,Gardner家族在河的 High Rock一边建造了一座带有围墙的宫殿,他们允许银行和一些商人进入围墙.此时Gardner家族的一位成员:Farangel宣布成为了Wayrest 的国王并且接受了来自Camorian帝国的使节,并在第一纪元的1100年受到了邦国的称号.

尽管Wayrest已经成为了一个国家,并在一个家族的统治之下.但是商人们在Wayrest继续行使他们那强大的权利.许多经济学家都认为 Wayrest为什么能够在这么长的时期一之保持着那良好的经济状态,除了和他们艰苦的作风有关外,王室和商人间密不可分的枢纽带也是不可纰漏的重要因素.后来,Gardner家族的王朝消亡了,接下来是Cumberland王朝的诞生;Cumberland王朝之后则是Horley王朝.最后,在第三纪元Septim的王朝来临了.在Wayrest的历史中,在相继统治过Wayrest的家族中,没有一个国王因为暴动而下台,没有一个国王遭到过谋杀 (除了那些来自Septim家族的).Wayrest的每一个国王都可以追溯到他们在王子时期的商业背景.所以商人们和国王相互恭敬,王室和商人之间精密的枢纽使得双方都能够从中获益.

如果你乐意你可以走到Wayrest的著名的林荫大道上,你就能亲眼见到这种王室与商人间奇特的联盟关系.从北向南走的话,Wayrest的林荫大道会突然分成两道:一条道向西而另一条文向东.每条道的尽头都是一个雷同大小的广场:一个在Wayrest城堡(Aphren Gardner建立的最早宫殿);另一个则是Cumberland广场,在这里有Wayrest最丰富而且最古老的市场.从这里我们也可以看出:国王和商人的长处是对等的.

Wayrest城邦在枯萎病,瘟疫,海盗打击,干旱,外族入侵和战争等众多不利因素下生存了下来并且城邦的人们还带有幽默乐观和务实的生活作风.在第一纪元的2702年,整个城市的人口被迫迁移到Gardners家族建立的围墙之内以抵御海盗,Akaviri队伍以及Thrassian瘟疫的入侵.在那里资源特别匮乏但Wayrest的人民却一代接着一代的给Tamriel大陆带来了财富.

新手注释:
Wayrest-----------------HIGH ROCK行省的一个邦国,以商业而文明.它的名字"Wayrest"的意思是WAY REST..也就是给旅人停下歇脚的意思,最初只是一个小渔村..

Gaiden Shinji------------Order of Diagna的成员,帝国王都竞技场的创始人..在攻占兽人首都Orsinium的战斗中死去...

接下来就是著名Betony战争了,这场战争是上古2的前因........................

Newgate笔下的Betony战争 翻译者:YAHOOCOM

作者: Vulper Newgate

如果我们向读者讲述起整个Iliac海湾地区的历史的话,读者从中受到的惊吓的程度要远远高过那些有关Underking的可怕传说.和在第一纪元和第二纪元发生的战争相比,我这次要带给大家的是最近才发生的Betony战争.围攻兽人首都Orsinium的行动从1纪元950年一直持续到1纪元的980 年,中间没制止过;Thrassian瘟疫和Righteousness战争在第二纪元席卷了整个Iliac海湾地区并夺走了半数人的生命.现在 Betony战争吸引了我们,并不仅仅是因为它就发生在现在.

很讽刺地说,一开始Betony的领主Mogref只是想寻求Daggerfall的保护以便维持长久的和平.Betony岛长久以来一直是一个独立自治的地区,但是在海湾地区的海盗活动越来越猖獗,Mogref明白地看清了Betony目前的困境,他必需寻求更强势力的保护.国王Lysandus听取了包括首席牧师Vanech在内很多人的意见后接受了Betony岛的臣服.因为Betony是一个渔业相当发达的小岛并且它的地理位置极具战略意义.合并 Betony都被看作是一次善举,因为国王Lysandus了解如果没人帮助Betony的话,这个小岛就很快会落入海盗们的手里;相比之下,并入 Daggerfall这种结果就要好的多了.

不幸的是,Sentinel王国的国王Camaron并不同意.他翻出了200年前的一纸条约并宣布Betony岛一直是属于Sentinel王国的,所以他就像Daggerfall宣战了.做为一个传统好战的国家,他部下大多数的大多数将领和谋臣都支持国王Camaron的这次行动.但国王的首席智囊, 一个叫Oracle的女人却预见了失败和殒命将发生在即将开始的战争.但她的智慧并没有被国王认可,她被驱逐出了宫廷.其实,Camaron应该服从她的建议.

战争爆发了,虽然Sentinel赢得了几场局部战斗,但紧要几场大战斗的赢家满是Daggerfall.Lysandus国王,他的继承人王子 Gothryd和军队的将领Bridwell指挥并参与了同Sentinel军队的战斗并且赢得了"Bluffs决斗"和"围攻Craghold"的几次决定性战斗.

或许只要在多一场胜利,Daggerfall就可以拿下这场战争,但此时在国王Lysandus的宫廷里却发生了一次内部事情.国王的母亲,老王后 Nulfaga从战争一开始就心神不安.但她现在却能看见一场剧变即将来临,她看见了她的儿子Lysandus将在这场战争中死去,如果让这场战争继续下去的话.但因为被胜利冲昏了头,Lysandus并没有服从他母亲的话直到他的母亲Nulfaga离开了宫厅.此时Lysandus才意识到母亲的话是有依据的,战争继续的话他是有可能会丧生.从而他开始积极的策划与Sentinel王国的和解并请了中立的领族在Reich Gradkeep进行调解活动.

但这次调解并没有成功.国王Camaron一开始表现的很客气,因为他已经失去了那么多次的战争.但当他得知这次他即将签订的和解条约里有一条就是与 Daggerfall中分Betony岛时,他一下子就变的狂暴起来了.在事先都没声明的情况下他突然打击了中立贵族,Camaron又命令他的军队在 Reich Gradkeep进行打击,战斗从从宫殿持续到街头,随处都血流成河.最后Daggerfall的军队终于控制住了事态.事后,Sentinel的军队往 Yeorth Burrowland撤退,而Daggerfall的军队则持续追击他们直到在Ravennia森林外他们才停下来安营扎寨.

一星期后,双方都各自派来了援军.两国军队来到了一片开满野花的草原上分开列队,这片草原被称做Cryngaine Field.突然响起了一阵爆炸声,一片不寻常的雾笼罩了两军,雾使双方的士兵都不能看见任何东西.当雾消散后,国王Lysandus的尸体被发明了,他的喉管被一支不知名的弓箭给射穿.

Daggerfall的军队并没有因为国王的死而悲伤太久;年轻的王子Gothryd在之前的战斗中已经显示出了大胆的战斗作风并深得军心,在 Daggerfall的军队的战线后他被付与了国王的王冠.继承王位后,Gothryd命令自己的军队向前进发.在成为国王后Gothryd身先士卒,战斗中表现的异常大胆,他的这种行为鼓动了军队的士气.战斗的形势开始转变了,Sentinel的军队开始变的慌乱.在那些红色守卫的军队撤离之前, Gothryd遇见了Camaron.此时,两个君主之间的战斗爆发了.Gothryd和Camaron都是很出色的战士,但似乎Gothryd的剑术在那天更加强一些,Camaron在战斗中死去了.Sentinel的领主Oresme在那天正式向DaggerfalL投向降并且宣布放弃一切在 Betony岛的官方权利,后来在回
Sentinel的海上,Oresme自杀了.

在Iliac海湾的两岸,和平是一个很难的进程.在和平条约中的其中一项就是Gothryd和公主Aubk-i结婚;公主Aubk-i是Sentinel 国王Camaron和女王Regent Akorithi的女儿.这项条款的意义在于重塑两国间的友好关系,但它只成功了一半.因为不少Sentinel的贵族都认为公主Aubk-i在这场战争后成为了DaggerfalL的囚犯而不是一条联结DaggerfalL和Sentinel的纽带.

在Reich Gradkeep领主家庭中幸存者只有一个婴孩.所以该领地的一些谋臣们建议贵族Auberon Flyte,也就是Graddock的堂兄进行摄政来管理这个领地.Flyte接受了这个建议,他的集权统治方式应该可以重新规复在那次血腥事情过后的 Reich Gradkeep.他属下的臣民对他的做法比力赞同,因此当阿谁婴孩死后,Flyte自己和老婆就真正的得到了这个领地并把Reich Gradkeep改名为Anticlere.

Betony战争后的恐慌一直残存到现在.尽管国王Gothryd和公主Aubk-i 的婚姻能给Daggerfall,Sentinel 两国带来和平,带以后的事态会如何发展我们谁也不了解.

新手注释:

Lysandus---------------Daggerfall的国王,在Betony战争中死去.


Camaron---------------Sentinel的国王

Nulfaga-------------一个巫婆,也是Lysandus的母亲.Daggerfall的老王后.

Aubk-i-------------Sentinel的公主.在战争竣事后嫁往Daggerfall.

Gothryd----------------Daggerfall的国王,Lysandus之子.

在上古卷轴2的故事一开始,你就受到皇帝Uriel Septim VII的召见并被派到Daggerfall去调查Lysandus的冤魂.因此Betony战争就是上古卷轴2:匕首雨故本家儿线的前奏.

固然,还有另一半关于这场战争的书籍,但看法却大不雷同..........


Fav'te笔下的Betony战争 翻译者:YAHOOCOM


作者:Fav'te

对布莱顿人刚愎的性格和不一的行为有没有更好的解释?历史会记住Betony战争吗??他们有着最恶心的动机,用尽了最卑鄙的手段最后他们获得了并不光彩的胜利,这就是Daggerfall王国.他们的行为改变了Iliac海湾地区的战争方式,或许这种恶劣的影响能传播到Tamriel大陆的其它地方.我们把最近的那场屠杀称作Betony围攻战,但历史总是由胜利者来书写的,现在就让我们来说说我们眼中的Betony战争.

红色守卫的本性是谦善和务实的.我们没有高精灵那么高傲,没有木精灵和虎人族那么胆小.那些被激怒的自尊而又爱吹牛的诺德人和布莱顿人在红色守卫的眼中都不值得一提.现在有布莱顿人的国家占据着阿谁叫Betony的小岛并且严密地守卫着.Betony的贸易所以受到严重的限定;在宗教方面Betony也被同化,岛上的民众成为阿谁国家封地上的领民.但事实上Betony并不是布莱顿人的国土,它一直是属于Sentinel王国的.

国王Lysandus----祝愿这个老头的灵魂在地狱里继续受到折磨,他要为他的邪恶付出价钱!看看现在阿谁富饶的岛屿已经垂垂远离Sentinel而靠近他的领地了,他的黑心也变得更加贪婪.他们用尽了各种手段:恐吓,欺骗,假装海盗.....最后是侵犯.Daggerfall非法地占据了 Betony岛.他部下的一名女巫Medora,他的巫婆母亲以及其他那些谋臣们对他暴虐的战争行为恐慌不已,他们一起央求他放弃那可怕的战争.但那些建议制止战争的人都被他赶出了宫殿.除了阿谁战争狂人外谁都没有留下.

后来我们的国王Camaron尝试着和Daggerfall规复外交关系,但最后他照旧决定宣战了.Daggerfall和Sentinel在这两千年来进行过多次战争.国王Camaron了解布莱顿人一直把刺探军情和黑魔法当成正式战争的一种手段;但我们Sentinel人是不会去复制布莱顿人的那种邪恶的战争方式,因为那样会松弛我们的品质.Camaron也明白怎样才气最好的对付Lysandus.国王Lysandus运用那些狡诈的战术比他的祖先更厉害.最后战争事态越来越大,并卷入了Sentinel和Daggerfall之外的地方.

Reich Gradkeep的领主Graddock作为调解Sentinel和Daggerfall两国的中间人并成功说服了两国的君主在一个所在碰面并商谈和谈的协议.在Reich Gradkeep的和谈会开始了,两国经过了谈判,讨论最后双方都同意并准备在和约上签字.Camaron同意放弃在Betony岛的一些权利以怀柔猖獗的Lysandus,这样和平就又会回到Iliac海湾地区了.就在国王Camaron读完和约准备签字后他突然发明布莱顿人其实在欺骗他:那纸和约被事先秘密地被Daggerfall人改写过并想诱使他上当;这张和约和原先他同意的那份竟然不一样.就这样,Reich Gradkeep城堡被血洗了,战争还将继续.

在Cryngaine Field 的战斗是这场战争的悲剧性结尾.Cryngaine Field坐落在Yeorth Burrowland和Ravennian森林之间,在那里Sentinel和Daggerfall的军队各从容自己的地盘上安营扎寨.战争开始后, Daggerfall的军队就运用了一种可恶的daedric魔法召来了一场大雾笼罩了战场,这样一来红色守卫的士兵就什么也看不见了.但 Lysandus并没有所以而得意太久,因为一名红色守卫的弓箭手在浓厚的大雾中一箭射穿了他的喉管.Lysandus的儿子Gothryd并没有悲伤太久,在没有任何仪式的情况下他当场就被付与了王冠.和Gothryd比起来,我们的国王Camaron是一位久经疆场的战士,但他已经被那位年轻国王发动的无止尽的战争拖的精疲力竭,最后,为了荣誉他同意和Gothryd单挑.那位Daggerfall的新国王在单挑中却用了肮脏的手段和黑魔法,他在背后打击了我们的国王,而那时单挑才方才开始.就这样一来,Daggerfall获得了在Cryngaine Field的胜利从而最终赢得了Betony战争.

Daggerfall在赢得了那不光彩的胜利后,他们的邪恶还在继续.我们Sentinel的女王殿下Akorithi在悼念我们的国王之后开始把她的一些因战争而变的琐屑的领地重组.作为胜利者,Gothryd要求Sentinel的公主作为人质前往Daggerfall.为了保护她的故乡,公主 Aubk-i同意离开Sentinel而嫁给阿谁谋杀他父亲的人.但我们当地的红色守卫都了解她真正所爱是在Sentinel,起首她应该是 Sentinel的公主其次才是Daggerfall王后.

新手注释:

这本书是一位Sentinel的市民所写,和前面一本"Newgate笔下的Betony战争"不太一样.因为这本书是一个红色守卫站在他自己的立场上所写的.

另外Sentinel的紧要居民是红色守卫而Daggerfall的紧要居民则是布莱顿人.

在第二纪元的末期,一个名叫Barenziah的小姑娘出生在了Mournhold王国的统治者家庭里,Mournhold王国也就是今天帝国的晨风行省.做为一个出生在贵族家庭的黑精灵孩子她拥有丰富的物质生活并且受到严格的保护,这种生活一直持续到她五岁那年.在那年,Tamriel帝国的第一位皇帝Tiber Septim对晨风的统治者提出了依附帝国并且接受帝国文化革新的要求.但黑精灵们对他们被过于夸大的魔法水平特别自信因此他们在一开始就无礼地回绝了 Tiber Septim的要求直到帝国的军队集结在晨风的边境地区.之后,那些狂热的黑精灵便急忙与帝国签下了停战协议.但在此之前发生过几场战斗,其中一场就摧毁了Mournhold,就是现在的Almalexia.年幼的Barenzia公主和她的关照员在战争后的房屋残骸中被发明.一位叫做Symmachus 的帝国将领本人也是黑精灵,他告诉Tiber Septim这个小姑娘在以后应该有利用价值.所以Barenziah就被交给了一位刚从帝国军团退役的将军关照.

Sven Advensen在退役之后就被付与了城主之位;他的封地是一个叫做Darkmoor的小镇,位于Skyrim行省的中部.Sven和他的老婆看待 Barenziah公主就像看待他们自己的亲生女儿那样.在那里她受到了良好的教育但最重要的一点是她从小就被贯注了许多帝国的传统美德,例如:顺从,谨慎,忠诚以及孝顺.很快,她就习惯了那里的生活并且觉得和当年在晨风统治者家庭里生活没什么两样.

这个叫Barenziah的姑娘长大后变成了一个集俏丽,庄重,智慧于一体的女人.她的脾气特别的好以至于她的继父母和他们那五个年轻的儿子都很喜欢她, 特别是那城主的五个儿子把她当成了他们自己的亲姐姐.除去她的外表因素外与其他贵族姑娘不一样的地方是她对树林和田地有着强烈的向往,所以她经常独自一人抽空离开家去野外闲逛.

Barenziah对她的生活一直很满意也很快乐直到她十六岁那年.那年的一天,一个她曾经帮助过的孤儿找到了Barenziah,他告诉 Barenziah他偷听到了城主Sven和一个红色守卫来访者的谈话,在谈话中他听到他们准备把她卖到Rihad去做别人的小妾;因为她黝黑的皮肤因此没有一个诺德人和布莱顿人会娶她.基于她在国外成长的背景也没有一个黑精灵会当他的丈夫.

"那我该怎么办呢?"阿谁可怜的姑娘开始抽泣并开始全身发抖.从小到大的生活使得她特别单纯并且容易信赖任何人.其实那种事根本就不会在她身上发生,阿谁男孩子欺骗了她,但是她信赖了.

阿谁叫Straw的男孩子告诉她如果她珍惜自己的话她就应该尽快逃走;而他则会和她一起走并当她的保护者.可悲的是,Barenziah同意了这个筹划.在那天的深夜,他把自己装饰成一个男孩子然后和Straw一起逃到了一个叫做Whiterun的附近城市.过了几天后他们决定找份事情,于是他们就当起了那些名声不好的商人车队的卫兵.车队往东走了几天后来到了一个帝国军团设置的岗哨前,在那里商人们想欺骗士兵以便逃避付那些通行费但被发明了. Barenziah和Straw为了逃避追捕而逃到了一个叫Rifton的城市,在那里他们停下了脚步.在Rifton休息了几天后他们感到安全多了,因为这里比力靠近晨风行省,因此随处都可以见到黑精灵.

Barenziah女王的传记 第二卷(晨风版) 翻译者:YAHOOCOM

作者:Stern Gamboge

在这个系列的第一卷中我们已经讲述了Barenziah早期的故事,她是Mournhold王国的继承人直到她的国王父亲抵抗强大的Tiber Septim而给晨风行省带来灾祸.但是我们仁慈的皇帝却没有杀死Barenziah,尽管她的父母已经在战争中死去.她被Blackmoor的城主 Baron Sven收养.长大后的她俏丽,虔诚而且特别信任她的养父.但是这种信任感却被一个在Baron Sven领地中的孤儿Straw所破坏.他用欺骗的伎俩蒙骗了Barenziah并让她和他一起逃离Blackmoor.经过逃跑路上的一波三折,他们最后来到了Rifton,一个在Skyrim行省境内却与晨风很近的城市.

阿谁叫Straw的男孩子并不是一直都那么怀.其实他欺骗Barenziah的原因是因为他深爱着她,但是这种爱又让他有了这种欺骗他人的自私的想法.他蒙骗了Barenziah后觉得自己可以拥有她,而Barenziah则一直把他当成自己的朋友来看待.尽管这样Straw照旧希望时间能改变一切.他想买下一个小农庄后再和Barenziah结婚,但他每天所赚的钱只能够勉强地维持他们每天最基本的生活需求.

不久,Straw就认识了一个名叫Therris的虎人盗贼.Therris建议他们一起去一位帝国长官的家中盗窃.因为他有一位已经背叛了帝国的客户; 如果他们能在那位长官家里发明有价值的情报后他就会出高价收买.Barenziah偷听了他们的谈话后惊呆了.她急忙收拾了自己的东西并不顾一切地冲到了 Rifton的街道上.在街上她一直踌躇不决:是对帝国的忠诚重要呢??照旧朋友之间的情谊重要?

最后,她选择了对帝国的忠诚.于是她来到了那位帝国长官的家并向那位长官说明了自己真实的身份以及她朋友的筹划.那位长官很认真地听完了她的故事后对她的勇气表示了赞许并担保她不会受到任何伤害.

自从Barenziah失踪后Symmachus将军就派人一直在乡间征采有关她的消息.在得到了她在Rifton的消息后,他就很快地赶过来并行使了对她的监护权.他也向她担保她是不会被卖掉的,而且等她年满十八岁后她就会被付与Mournhold的女王.在此之前她将会被安置在一个帝国官员的家里并生活在新建的帝国王都,在那里她可以学习点关于帝国政府的东西,而且还可以结交一些重要的人物.

时间过的很快.在王都的几年,Barenziah和皇帝Tiber Septim成了特别要好的朋友,而皇帝的接班人Pelagius也把Barenziah当成自己的亲妹妹一样来看待.城里传遍了歌颂她俏丽,聪慧,纯洁的歌谣.在她十八岁的那天生日,整个王都的人都聚集到街头观看她回Mournhold的过程.人们对她的离去而感到伤感,但他们都了解Barenziah 将要成为Mournhold王国光荣的新统治者了.

Barenziah女王的传记 第三卷(晨风版) 翻译者:YAHOOCOM

作者:Stern Gamboge

皇帝Tiber Septim以及他的家人看待Barenziah特别热情,在她居住在新建的王都的这段日子里,他们对她就像自己的亲生女儿那样.在接下去的几个月里, Barenziah在皇帝地指导下学习行管理自己的子民.离开王都后,将军Symmachus亲自护送她前往Mournhold,在那里 Symmachus指导她行使女王的权利.慢慢地,他们之间磨出了爱的火花,他们倆相爱并且结婚了.由皇帝亲自来主持那次盛大的加冕仪式.

这个婚姻经过了几百年后他们的儿子Helseth终于诞生了.那些在他们结婚时就祝福过他们的祈祷者们也赶了过来为他们的孩子祈福,随处都弥漫着欢乐的气氛.但此时大家都不了解,在祈祷者们为婴孩祈福之前,一个叫Nightingale的聪明的吟游诗人就从Mournhold的矿山底下盗走了那件名为"混乱之杖"的神器.

在Helseth出生后的第八年,Barenziah又怀上了一个女儿,她的名字叫做Morgiah;这个名字是为了纪念Symmachus的母亲而取的.过了没多久,晨风地区与帝国的关系竟不可思议地恶化了,在Mournhold也多次发生了暴动事情.在多次尝试与帝国规复关系未果后, Barenziah就带着她的那两个孩子前往王都以便可以听到皇帝的说法,Symmachus则留在了晨风.

在王都Barenziah和皇帝碰面并且开始了交谈,在交谈的过程中Barenziah利用了自己的法术来看皇帝.此时恐惧和不安突然降临到了她的身上, 她发明在她面前的阿谁皇帝竟然是假的!现在的皇帝应该是Nightingale偷了那根"混乱之杖"后冒充的.尽管发明了眼前的秘密,她照旧冷静下来并且没有让阿谁假皇帝发觉.在阿谁夜晚,她突然收到了Symmachus在战斗中被杀死,Mournhold被起义军攻战的消息.正当Barenziah感到无处寻求帮助的时候一个人敲开了她的房门.来人的名字叫做Eadwyre,他是Wayrest王国的国王,而且照旧皇帝Uriel Septim和Symmachus的老朋友.见了面后,他表达了自己的至心并告诉Barenziah现在的阿谁皇帝的确是假的.现在的阿谁假皇帝名叫 Jagar Tharn,是原来帝国的战斗法师.在公众的眼里Jagar Tharn已经退休了,并且把事情交给了他的助手Ria Silmane.其实,Jagar Tharn一直都没有离开过王都,而且Ria已经死了.但是Ria的灵魂却出现在了Eadwyre的梦里并告诉他真正的皇帝被绑架了而且被关在另外的一个空间内.当Ria试图向元老会揭露Tharn那恶毒的阴谋前,Tharn就用"混乱之杖"把她给灭口了.

于是Barenziah和Eadwyre在一起设定了一个筹划:他们决定先获取假皇帝的信任然后在适当的时机寻求Ria的一个朋友的帮助来揭穿这个阴谋. 而Ria的阿谁朋友现在正被关在帝国的监狱内,但Ria也进入过他的梦境因此他拥有特别多的情报.为了迷惑敌人Barenziah开始帮助那位假皇帝.通过阅读那位假皇帝的秘密日志,她了解到Jagar Tharn已经把"混乱之杖"给破坏了,并把它分成八块碎片藏了起来.于是她就决定复制一把Ria朋友被关的牢门钥匙,并且贿赂看守的卫兵离开牢房;这样一位名字不为Barenziah和Eadwyre所知的勇士就可以把他给补救出来,并从一个Ria事先已经开好的门里逃走.阿谁门被开在一个昏暗的角落里,阿谁角落里鼠患为满,甚至连哥布林都不乐意去.Barenziah通过偷看日志和偷听假国王的秘密谈话花了几个月的时间了解了那八块手杖碎片的不同位置.当得到了确切的消息后,她顿时与Eadwyre一起逃到了Wayrest王国,在那里他们躲避了Tharn部下的追捕.Tharn后来并没有把细致力集中在Barenziah身上,他把自己所有的力量都集中起来,目的是杀死那名为Barenziah事情的无名勇士.

后来发生的事我们都了解,那名大胆的,有力量的而且永久都没有名字的英雄成功地把那八块碎片集合在了一起.随后,他杀死了Tharn并成功地补救出了皇帝 ---Uriel Septim七世.之后皇帝在王都举行了一场很隆重的悼念会,为了纪念死去的Symmachus,因为他已经为Septim家族作出了很巨大的贡献. Barenziah和国王Eadwyre则在这次事情之后走近了,后来他们结婚了.结婚后,Barenziah带着她的孩子一起前往Wayrest并指定了另一个人来代她管理晨风行省.她决定在Eadwyre国王过世之后再回到晨风,因为当他们结婚的时候Eadwyre已经特别苍老了.对付精灵来说,这一天并不遥远.

新手注释:

Wayrest-------------位于HIGH ROCK行省的城邦国家,以商业而文明.

那位无名英雄就是上古卷轴1代:竞技场的主角.打败Jagar Tharn补救皇帝也是1代的主线剧情.

Barenziah是个很重要的人物,在上古卷轴1-3都出现过她的身影.在1代她指派主角寻找碎片;在二代她则居住在Wayrest王国;而在上古3的资料篇审判席中,她则和她的儿子Helseth一起出现在了晨风的首都.

Alik'r沙漠位于HAMMERFELL行省的北部,下面这本书的作者看来是已经爱上了-Alik'r沙漠 ...

Alik'r沙漠 翻译者:YAHOOCOM

作者:Enric Milres

如果没有在阿谁位于Sentinel的小旅馆遇见Weltan的话,我想我这辈子都不会去Alik'r沙漠.Weltan是个红色守卫诗人;我曾拜读过他的作品,不外那都是翻译后的.因为他的作品所用的文字满是古老的红色守卫语,而不是现在的Tamrie语,我曾经问他为什么用这种语言来书写自己的作品.

"Tamrie语的词汇是给那些所谓神圣的富人用的,就像柔软的,腐败的,经过压缩的酸牛奶那样....对就是像奶酪那样."Weltan笑着说到,笑容就像潮水一样平常泼散在了他那张黝黑的脸上."而我们古老的红色守卫语就要好的多了.告诉我,如果你精通这两门语言,那你会选哪一种来写你的作品呢?"

我是一个来自城市的孩子,我向他讲述了关于城市噪音,腐败,猖獗的夜晚,能量,文化以及堕落等故事.他认真地听了我的讲述并对我出生的城市感到敬畏:在用白卵石铺路的帝都,每个公民都有着他们自己的重要性,因为他们靠近皇帝的居所并且生活在那整洁的街道.他们说那些在帝都林荫大道边的托钵人夜晚就居住在皇宫里.在喝了一杯比力烈的麦芽酒后我又给他说明了Riverhold那拥挤的市场;那昏暗的Mournhold;Lilmoth那些有坚固外壳的别墅群; Helstrom那些非同寻常而又危险的小巷以及在老Solitude的那些庄重的大道.他仔细地听着我讲述的事物,时而惊奇,时而又向我询问问题并给出自己的评论.

"我觉得我好像了解你的家乡,Alik'r沙漠,不外这些都是从你的作品中了解的,我并没有去过那儿."我告诉他.

"噢,那么你就不了解Alik'r沙漠,因为没有一首诗是能够真正展现它的.或许你应该准备去Alik'r沙漠旅行一下,这样总比你光从书本里了解要好.如果你想了解整个Tamriel大陆并且成为整个星球上真正的公民的话你就必需去沙漠亲身感觉一下."

后来为了这次旅行我准备了一年有余.在这一年多里,我存够了旅费(对我来说这个是最困难的),然后我就离开了那喧嚣的城市生活而开始向Alik'r沙漠进发了.在临走前我随身带了几本Weltan的诗集以作为我的旅行指南.

"一支神圣的火苗从火堆里窜了上来,那些伟大的无名的男人和女人的鬼魂,已经消亡的古城的兴盛与末落全都在火炎的折射下,Dioscori之歌中那些能启发后人的围墙以及那些不朽的岩石,火一样平常炙热的沙石在破坏与规复中不绝地轮回."

以上这些是我朋友那首"在那片不朽的沙漠中"的前六行文字,它让我有对Alik'r沙漠有了一个初步的印象.但平心而论这些文字是不足以来表达 Alik'r沙漠的.Alik'r沙漠让我看到了它的雄伟,永恒不变,凛冽的以及感觉到我们人生的渺小,我的那支可怜的笔是远远不能把Alik'r沙漠给刻画下来.

历史上曾经的公国以及国与国之间的界限都被那滚动的沙浪所吞噬.如果当我站在Antiphyllos或者Bergama中时,还有一些当地的居民可以来告诉我;但是我现在是在Alik'r,它们开始向我靠拢了,我只是身在Alik'r沙漠,不,我们现在已经成为了Alik'r沙漠中的一部分了.我的这种想法应该很靠近那些居住在沙漠里的人们吧.

我看见了Weltan诗中刻画的那支神圣的火炎了:一大片红色的雾看起来好像是从Tamriel大陆深处那神秘的地方飘来的.在中午的太阳升起之前这片红雾便消失了.接着我就看见了Weltan诗中所写的城市:一阵大风刮过了沙漠接着一片古城的遗迹便从沙漠的深处展现了出来,但很快它又被另一片流沙所吞没.在沙漠里没有东西可以留下,除了永久的殒命.

白天,我躲在了自己的帐篷内,思考着红色守卫们的性格特点.就是这种性格使得红色守卫能被这片荒蛮而永恒的土地所接受.他们是天生的战士,作为一个团体, 除了Alik'r沙漠外没有人能比他们更明白战斗.战斗还在继续.这是一场没有仇恨的战争,这是一场能用地上赞美之辞的伟大的圣战.

在夜晚,我在这片平静的土地上小心地观察着.那时四周黑白常的宁静.地上的那些沙石就像燃烧着的一样,火烫火烫;但沙石上的热量并不是来自阳光,也不是来自Jone和Jode的月光.这些热量是直接来自于Tamriel大陆心脏的跳动.

我在Alik'r沙漠呆了两年.

写到这里的时候,我已经回到了Sentinel.我们正和Daggerfall王国发生着战争,为的只是一块笼罩着绿草的岩石,而它则是属于Iliac海湾的海水的.和我在一起的所有的诗人,作家和艺术家们都对那些因贪婪和"荣誉"所陷入战争的人们而感到悲哀.这是一个悲剧,用古红色守卫语来说就是an ajcea,回旋直下的意思.

但是我不会所以而悲伤.在Alik'r沙漠的那段光荣的岁月里,我看见了那些永不会消逝的石头生活在那里,而人类则在不断地消亡.我心田的那双眼睛更是看破了那片没有道路,没有定形的以及永不会改变的土地.我心田被鼓动而且充满了希望,就像那些在沙漠中的石头那样,它们是永恒的,但人类不是.

Alik'r沙漠------------位于hammerfell行省西部的一片沙漠,属于Iliac海湾地区.就在Sentinel王国的南部.

HIGH ROCK行省的居民大多很忠于帝国,那么就让我们来看看他们是怎么缅怀那位悲惨的女皇Kintyra二世...

Broken Diamonds(碎裂的钻石) 翻译者:YAHOOCOM

作者:Ryston Baylor

现在我还记得幼年的时候在Glenumbra Moors过的第一个Broken Diamonds节日.在我记忆中有许多盛大的节日,比如丰收节,年中节,新年节以及帝王日.在我明白庆祝真正的意义前这些节日都在我的脑海里留下了深刻的印象.在每年霜落的第19天,我都会随着我们家人和其他的Glenumbra Moors居民一起前往中部荒野的一个废弃的城堡.我们手握着手围绕着阿谁城堡组成了一个大圆圈;向城堡鞠躬后我们就开始唱起了那首名为"the Sepharve"的歌曲.

每年在这个节日来临时,我们都重复着这些动作;我从没有向我的家人问过我们这么做的原因.固然这是个很非主流的习俗并且会引起孩子们的好奇心,但自从我记事起我就没向别人问过关于Broken Diamonds节日的含义,而且成年人们也不会主动来解释为什么有这样一个节日.

作为一个Glenumbra Moors的当地居民我也不会去寻根问底,但有来访者曾经告诉过我这个节日包含着悲伤,更确切地应该是羞愧----大多数本地人都是这么认为的.在 Glenumbra Moors当地人的潜意识中现在还燃烧着阿谁古老而又惊人的犯法事情.虽然那次案件不是发生在我们现在这个期间,但我们照旧了解那次罪恶的血债现在到还没有被偿还.

那次犯法就是Tamriel的女皇Kintyra二世殿下在第三纪元123年的第23个霜落的阿谁严寒的早晨被谋杀的事情.

我们不了解那时她被关押阿谁城堡的名字;我们也不了解阿谁杀死她的凶手(固然下令处死她的人就是她的表兄:Uriel三世);我们甚至不了解她被安葬的所在.但我们的祖先在那时了解女皇殿下被关押的所在,阿谁所在就在我们的领地里.但他们却对此无能为力,不能给予女皇一点帮助.所以我们后人常所以事而感到羞愧.

在阿谁清晨,当我们曾祖父的曾祖父辈听到Kintyra女皇被杀的消息后,都感到惊恐万分而且对他们自己的不作为而感到愧疚.所有在Glenpoint和 Glenumbra Moors的人都集合起来征采了每一座帝国的城堡,他们以自己的血肉之躯组成了围墙以防止凶手逃离.标有Septim家族族徽的红钻石旗帜被撕碎,那些旗帜的碎片就像碎裂的钻石那样零星地散落在了雪地上.

那首名为"Sepharve"的歌曲在每个Broken Diamonds节都被人们传唱.为了解这首歌的含义(因为这首歌是用古布莱顿语写的)我问过了Glenumbra Moor的所有居民.但人们虽然通过父母的教授学会了这首歌但他们都不明白这首歌中歌词确切的意思;歌中包含的音调和情感也很难用词汇来表达出来.后来我去讨教了一位学者,他给了我这首歌最精确的翻译;我终于理解为什么我们祖先会选择这首歌来纪念Kintyra女皇二世被谋杀以及阿谁黑暗的早晨后就遗留在在Glenumbra Moors地区的悲伤了.

"我们父辈的Sephavre灵魂,被深深地折磨,因为你们领导我们进入了那黑暗的年月,当我们自己的灵魂,在空气中游荡时,愚昧和邪恶在我们曾经生活的土地上滋长.啊,祖先们,你们把我们的记忆和罪恶一同存放.我们的行为是为了生存的需要,放弃思想和心灵后我们将不再会抗争,我们会像急潮中的沉船那样被撕裂,我们永久都黑白公理的代表但我们会哀悼到永久."

新手注释:

Broken Diamonds是Glenumbra Moors和Glenpoint当地居民的传统节日.这个节日是为了纪念女皇Kintyra二世被谋杀的.


女皇Kintyra二世-----------女皇Kintyra二世之死是公认的悲剧.Kintyra二世是皇帝Antiochus的女儿,她继承了父亲的帝位.但她的表兄,Solitude王国的Potema女王的儿子Uriel发兵反叛并囚禁了她.经过两年天昏地暗的犯人生活后,Kintyra二世被无情地谋杀了.

Glenumbra Moor,Glenpoint-----------属于HIGH ROCK行省,在DAGGERFALL王国的北部.

固然也不能忘记说明一下海湾地区众多的节日!!

Iliac海湾地区的节日 翻译者:YAHOOCOM


作者:Theth-i

因为Iliac海湾地区有着丰富的历史,因此我们对该地区拥有云云众多奇特的节日并不感到惊奇.布莱顿文化和红色守卫文化有很多的相似点,固然它们之间也有很多不同之处.研究这些节日也成为了了解当地居民的一种手段.

有一些学生可能会问我,红色守卫是Tamriel大陆的新移民;尽管那是几千年之前(第一纪元的808年).但文字已经记载下了他们到达这片大陆的日期. 那时的Hammerfell行省是一大片沙漠四周则环绕着许多不可逾越的高山.那里无人定居而且被人们视作多余之地.因此今天的很多在 Hammerfell行省的节日都可以被看作是红色守卫移居到Tamriel之前传统节日的直接转化.

这些狂欢的节日庆典随着季候的不同在每个月都会变革.在每年日晓的第28天,Banthan丛林里的红色守卫就会一起进行对Aduros Nau的庆典,以便驱除冬季带来的那种毫无生气的气氛;在年中的第一天,Abibon-Gora的人便会对代表太阳的神灵Drigh R'Zimb进行庆典,但那天的庆典活动普通红色守卫居民是不会参与的;类似的还有日高的第29天,这个节日是在沙漠中进行的被人们称作"燃烧之夜",看起来好像比力邪门;末种第11日在Sentinel举行的Koomu Alezer'i节又被翻译成"戴德劳绩节",许多学者都认为以前这应该是个在春天的节日;而末种第14天在Bantha的"猛虎之宴"以前则可能是一个为纪念虎神的宗教性节日.

其它一些红色守卫节日则是古代红色守卫传统节日和红色守卫们为了适应Hammerfell地区气候的融合产物.在Satakalaam的节日"巨蛇之舞" 就是一个很好的例子,这是一个为纪念那位在前往Tamriel大陆的路程中殒命的蛇神而建立的节日.日暮的第3天是一个重要的日子,在那一天蛇神和那些巨蛇牧师们消失了.在夜星的第18天的Baranth Do节和同一月第24天的Chil'a节都是新年节.为了以Tamriel大陆的纪年法为准它们原有的日期都被更改过了.

和红色守卫相比,布莱顿人在Tamriel大陆的历史就要长的多了;在有文字记载之前他们就已经在Tamriel生活了.从远古时期到现在他们的节日一直保持不变,固然现在也有一些新的节日被创造出来以替代那些已经不被人们关注的旧节日.

目前在High Rock行省还存在的最古老节日当属在每年晨星第18天的"苏醒日".那些居住在Yeorth Burrowland的居民将会在那一天唤醒在冬季中甜睡的众多灵魂,这和他们那些尊敬的祖先的做法很相似.每年初种的第25天在High Rock乡间庆祝的"鲜花日"也黑白常古老的节日之一.在Tamarilyn Point地区的人们则会在雨手的第一天来纪念古代的鲜花教会.雨手第13日是Daggerfall王国的"死节",人们在那天会依照布莱顿人的传统来祭拜先祖.最后,在Glenumbra Moors地区的日暮第8天会有纪念古代月神Secunda的"月节",在那以后年内的夜晚会变长.

在High Rock地区最近才被建立的节日有的和帝国有关.比如说"Tiber日",每年年中的第24天将会庆祝这个节日以纪念Alcaire的伟大的儿子 Tiber Septim.在日晓第25天的Othroktide节则是纪念第一位而且也是最杰出的Dwynnen男爵.和这些节日不同的是次种第9日举行的 "Marukh之日";这是一个特别庄重的节日,是为了使第一纪元的先知Marukh讲过的那些庄重的课程成为不朽.我个人最爱的现代布莱顿节日是"猖獗的Pelagius",这个节日是为了揶揄那位怪异的帝国皇帝的而建立的.Pelagius在成为Solitude的国王之前曾经是Wayrest王国的王子,不外最后他照旧当上了Tamriel帝国的皇帝.布莱顿人经常在外人面前吹捧Pelagius在High Rock的时候就已经疯了.

新手注释:

Iliac海湾地区-----它包括了Hammerfell和High Rock的沿海地区.红色守卫和布莱顿人是该地区的紧要居民.

Aduros Nau,Drigh R'Zimb----------红色守卫文化中的传统神灵.


Pelagius-----这里指的是Pelagius3世,关于他的生平详见"疯子皇帝Pelagius"一书.

去会见贵族们必需遵守礼仪!!


统治者的规则 翻译者: YAHOOCOM

作者:Erystera Ligen

由于有各种复杂的法规和很大的危害,因此许多人在去见一个有名号的贵族前都会踌躇好久.对付那些第一次晋见贵族的人来说,正确地说出贵族的头衔是很重要的,因为没有人乐意自己的名号被别人混淆.但在High Rock行省内,各个地方的贵族的传统习惯都有细微的差别.但基本法规照旧一样的,这些基本法规如下:

在High Rock行省目前存在着八个国家,它们分别是:Northpoint,Daggerfall,Shornhelm,Camlorn,Farrun, Evermore,Wayrest和Jehanna.如果一个女人统治着其中的一个国家,那么她就被称作女王.但女王的丈夫或是国王的老婆却不能与国王或是女王等同起来,因为他们自己有可能就不是国王或是女王.他们之间的儿女被称为王子或者是公主,他们的孙儿们也是王子,公主.如果一个男人统治者殒命而且当时没有王太后存在的话那他的老婆就可以被付与"王太后"的名号.和其它的各种法规一样这个法令也有例外.第一个例外就是在Daggerfall王国孕育发生的,当时国王Lysandus刚好死去,在法规中他的老婆是不能拥有王太后这个名号的,因为当时Lysandus的母亲,王太后Nulfaga仍然活着. 但在那时的Daggerfall王国这两个人却同时拥有了这个名号.Nulfaga和国王的老婆Mynisera同时被称作"王太后".

如果一个女性统治者,在生前她没有让她的丈夫拥有国王的头衔,那么她死后她的丈夫就没有类似"王太公"之类的名号.女性统治者的丈夫在老婆死后通常有着另外一种名号,这些名号通常来自他们的家庭或是他们的孩子.在High Rock历史上有一些男人在身为女王的老婆殒命后却没有拿到国王的名号,他们一样平常被别人称作先生.

除了这些王国外,High Rock的其它一些地区则由一些公爵(女公爵),侯爵(女侯爵),城主(女城主),伯爵(女伯爵),子爵(女子爵)男爵(女男爵),领主(女领主)来统治.一样平常低层的统治者都是由高层的统治者来任命的.但是有一些特别重要的人物却不受这些限定,Dwynnen领地中的男爵就是一个很好的例子.他虽然是男爵但在他的领地上他却不受那些公爵或是伯爵的限定.

一样平常来说,贵族家庭中最年长的后代在家庭中的阶层仅比他们的父母低.比如说Northmoor的公爵,他同时也是Calder的子爵,那他最年长的女儿就可以成为Calder的女子爵.

国王和女王都被人称作"尊敬的陛下";而公爵或是女公爵则被人称作"尊敬的殿下".其他的一些统治者的称呼则和他们的名字挂勾,例如某某领主或是某某密斯.

我们靠一些线索就可以判断是谁在统治这个地区.你可以从街上行人的口中获知该领主的信息,但是光靠这点照旧不够的.如果你听到关于Bemmish领主或是 Viscountess Byrd的流言,那么他们两个都可能不是该地的统治者也有可能他们两人都是.我现在找到了一种能更准确获取信息的方法就是细致当地一些旅馆和市肆的名称. 依照传统老例,许多这些地方都被称作"公爵的狐狸"或者是"密斯的供应".通常都会用到该统治者的名字.如果这个市肆的名称叫做"Annisa密斯的供应 "或是"Boxworth领主的狐狸,"那么这应该是当地有名望商人的名字而不是当地领主的.一个市肆以一个没有名字的领主的名号起名的话,这个领主一样平常是该领地的旧统治者而不是新统治者.

要和一个人说话,不管他是不是一个统治者,起首是要了解他(她)是个什么样的人.统治者们一样平常都喜欢站在庆典上,而且他们喜欢别人和他们谈话的时候都要表现出礼貌和尊敬的态度.固然有一些新来的年轻的统治者,他们则喜欢别人用一些大胆和随意的语句和他们交谈.如果你不能确定阿谁领主的谈话方式或是你对自己选择贵族的词汇照旧平民的词汇踌躇不决时,你可以运用一些简单而又直接的表达方式和他们交谈.简单的语句一样平常不会吸引人但也不会犯错误.我想要告诉你的是,如果你惹怒一个领主,那么这将会是你一生中犯的最后一个错误.

在上古2的故事竣事后,晨风国王Helseth的妹妹来到了SUMMERSET ISLE..一个黑精灵当上了高精灵们的王后...那她会怎么样呢?????

Firsthold的暴动 翻译者: YAHOOCOM


作者: Maveus Cie

“你曾经告诉过我,如果她的兄弟赢了的话,那她就成为了Wayrest国王的妹妹了.那么Reman就会娶她以便与Wayres王国结盟.但是她的哥哥Helseth现在失败了并且和他的母亲一起逃到了Morrowind. Reman怎么现在还没有离开她而来娶我为妻呢?” Gialene密斯慢慢地吸了一口水烟后深深地吐出了一口气.带有鲜花芬芳的气息弥漫在了那镀金的房屋. “你给我的建议特别的不好, Kael.也许我该向Cloudrest或是Alinor的国王求爱而不是王后Morgiah的阿谁国王丈夫.”

Kael明白的了解如果此时他向Gialene说明了Firsthold国王已经爱上了他的那位黑精灵王后的话,那将会伤害到她的那颗爱慕虚荣的心.所以,他准备给她几分钟时间安静并从她的阳台上眺望那座矗立在悬崖之上的古代首都的王宫.月光如水晶的碎片那样撒落在Abecean海的那片青蓝色的海面上.在这里永久都是春天,此时他明白了她为什么要当这片土地上的王后而不是Cloudrest或者Alinor王后的原因了.

终于,他又开口了: “人们都与你同在,我尊敬的密斯.他们是不会同意Reman死后他的黑精灵后代来统治这片土地.”

“我在想,”她很平静地说道,”我想如果国王为了同盟而不乐意放弃他的王后,她自己是否会因为害怕而放弃呢?对付Firsthold所有的人来说,谁最不喜欢黑精灵的势力影响到王宫呢?”

“这是一个很有趣的问题.我尊敬的密斯.” Kael回答. “Trebbite僧侣们,他们的信条就是净化Summurset岛上的高精灵血统,特别是在王室家庭中.但他们的实力还很弱.”

“这我了解,” Gialene说道,沉思中的她又吸了一口水烟,笑容突然间爬上了她的面庞. “Morgiah已经了解了这一点.她想要把他们全都清理掉,但鉴于那些僧侣们对人民做出的那一切,国王Reman会坐视不管吗?如果他们能意识到他们已经有了一位强大的女施主,一位和Firsthold王室有着密切关系的,在国王的面前最有影响力的妾室;她的父亲,,Skywatch的国王有大量的资金可以给他们提供武器装备,那他们会怎么样呢?”

“富足的武器装备和人民的支持是很强大的背景,” Kael点头道. “但是作为你的顾问,我必需要提醒你:如果你真准备与Morgiah女王正面为敌的话,那么你就肯定要胜利.因为她继承了她母亲Barenziah女王的智慧和复仇的本性.”

“她一开始是不会了解我是她的敌人的,如果她了解的话那么一切都晚了,” Gialene耸了耸肩后说道. “去Trebbite僧院,并把Friar Lylim给我带来.我们必需要一起商讨我们的筹划.”

两个星期以来,国王Reman一直听到有关乡间不友好的声音:那些农夫们把Morgiah称作了”黑女王”,但他对这些并没在意.他现在把他的细致力集中到了Calais Lar小岛上那些猖獗的海盗身上.那些海盗比以往都要更加棘手,不久前他们又组织打击了沿海的王家泊船.为了给予那些海盗沉重地打击,他组织了他部下民兵并准备亲自率领军队进攻Calluis Lar岛.

在国王出征后的几天, Trebbite僧侣就开始在首都地区暴动了.打击王城的行动特别有条理而且事先并没有任何告诫.守卫队长在没有接到指示的情况下就先于那些慌乱的仆从们冲进了 Morgiah的卧室.

“我尊敬的女王陛下,”他喘着气说道, “这是一场暴动.”

而此时的Gialene并没有睡觉,当Kael进来传递消息的时候她正坐在窗边,抽着水烟看着远方山顶上的火光.

“Morgiah正在宫中,” Kael说道, “我想他们已经告诉了她Trebbite僧侣们策划了这次的暴动,起义军们将在明早到达城市的大门.”

“起义军和王家卫队相比有没有胜算?” Gialene问道.

“形势在我们这边.” Kael说道. “尽管起义军没有我们想象中的那么多.那些痛恨女王的农夫们只打击了一小会就解散了.现在我们的军队是由僧侣们自己和一帮你父亲雇佣的雇佣兵组成的.简单地说,他们比一样平常的暴民更有组织性也更有战斗力.他们是真正的军队.”

“但这样也不能使黑女王退位的,” Gialene笑着说道,她从椅子上慢慢地起身. “阿谁可怜的人儿现在大概在努力使自己不紧张吧,我真想飞到她的身边去享受这一切.”

但当Gialene看见Morgiah走出王宫的时候,她失望了. Morgiah方才从梦境中被暴动的喧华声所惊醒并花了几个小时的时间与她部下的军队商讨事态的发展.她看起来很俏丽,从她那双明亮的红眼睛中能明白地看见那骄傲与轻蔑的火花.

“我的女王陛下,” Gialene哭道,她使劲地从眼睛里挤出了一些眼泪. “在我听见这些喊声的时候我就赶来了.我们全都会被杀死吗?”

“这是毫无疑问的,” Morgiah很简略地回答道. Gialene试图从她的脸上读透她,但她失败了. Morgiah脸上的表情比那些高精灵们更难读懂.

“我甚至怪自己到现在还要来提醒你,” Gialene说道. “但是引起这些暴乱的人其实就是你,如果你放弃当这个国家的王后的话,这场暴乱就会被平息的.请你理解这些,我的女王.我只为这个国家的前途和我们自己的生命考虑.”

“我了解你建议的真正意思,” Morgiah笑着说道. “但是我是不会接受这种建议的,信赖我.我已经考虑过类似的这种建议了,但是我想我是不会就此放弃的.”

“你正在策划保卫你自己吗?” Gialene问道,她尽量地使自己表现出那种充满希望的模样.

“国王出征前留下了不少战斗法师,” Morgiah说道, “那些暴民大概以为我们只有一些卫兵和少量的士兵吧.但当他们到达王城大门的时候迎接他们的将会是一波波的火球,我想他们应该会落荒而逃吧.”

“那不是对付那些打击者来说最好的屏障吗?” Gialene用她那看似平静的口吻说到.

“如果他们了解这点的话,那应该会有应对的步伐.但我想在那群暴民里应该不会有运用规复系魔法的法师吧.如果有这些法师的话他们就可以用魔法盾把自己罩住.这样我的战斗法师运用的魔法将会反弹到他们自己身上.这样的话我们的形势就糟糕了,但如果他们中间真的有足够的法师可以运用这项魔法的话我想这种情形也是不会发生的.没有一位战地指挥官会作出这种方式的决定,除非他明白地了解他将要面对的是什么敌人.但到那时候,陷井就已经发动了” Morgiah眨着双眼说道. “现在开始组织法术的话已经太晚了.”

“真是一个调皮的计策,我的陛下.” Gialene铭记于心道.

Morgiah说要准备离开去见那些战斗法师了, Gialene则给了她一个拥抱. Kael站在王宫的花园里等着他的主人.

“在雇佣军队伍里有法师吗?”她很快地问道.

“有几个,” Kael回答道,他对Gialene的询问有些疑惑. “他们大多是被Psijic Orde驱逐出去的,但他们照旧明白一些在学院里学得的最常用的法术.”

“你必需到城门外去告诉Friar Lylim,在他们近攻以前让这些法师释放一些反射法术到战斗的前线.” Gialene说道.

“这可不是一个正规的战斗策略,” Kael皱着眉头说道.

“我了解这一点,傻瓜,这就是Morgiah所想要的.他们有一大帮战斗法师等待在城门口,迎接我们军队的将会是漫天的火球.”

“战斗法师?我以为国王Reman带着他们去和那些海盗战斗了.”

“你可以这么想,” Gialene大笑道, “但到那时我们都被击败了.好了,你现在顿时给我出城!”

Friar Lylim听了Kael的话后也觉得很奇怪,到目前为止还没有听说过在战斗前就在自己队伍身上释放反射法术的.这种作战方式是不合情理的.作为一个Trebbite僧侣,他仔细地衡量了各方面的各种因素.在另一方面,他的队伍里并没有太多的治疗法师,他们不能在施放反射法术的时候浪费自己的法力.

在黎明的阳光刚照射到土地的时候,叛军们已经看到了远方闪着亮光的Firsthold的众塔. Friar Lylim把那些明白法术基础和深熟法术运用的法师都集中到了一起.他们中的一些人照旧法术运用的大师级人物.他们的增加使得队伍的战斗力更加强悍.一阵强力的魔法波冲洗了整支军队,爆裂声,嘶嘶声全都注入了这支可怕的队伍之中.当他们抵达王城大门的时候,每一个士兵都明白,没有一种法术能在短时间内伤害到他们了.

Friar Lylim看着他的军队猛烈地进攻着城门,一种强烈的满足感涌上了他的心头.他正好用出奇不料的进攻手段抵消了城门内那些顽强的抵抗.想到这里,他的脸上露出了满意的微笑.

但是他们在战场上遇见的并不是一支战斗法师队伍,而是一支由王宫守卫组成的弓箭手.漫天的火箭落在了城外那些叛军的身上,那些治疗法师急忙跑到伤者旁试图用治疗法术为他们疗伤.但治疗法术却从那些伤者的身上反弹到了治疗者自己的身上,一个紧接着一个.那些进攻的叛军们突然意识到自己现在是那么的无助,他们开始慌乱并在没有组织的情况下向后撤退了. Friar Lylim在抵抗了一会后也迅速逃离了战场.

战后,大怒之下的Friar Lylim向Gialene密斯和Kael寄了一封言辞激烈的信件,但不久之后,那封信被退回来了.就连他部下最优秀的特使也不能找到他们两人的下落.

接下来,经过了一系列的严刑拷打,叛乱者们很快就交代了他们反叛国王的阴谋. Kael被处决了,而Gialene则被送回了Skywatch的她父亲处,她的父亲仍然准备给她找一个丈夫.而国王Reman在这场风波后也决定不再纳新的妾室了. Firsthold的民众们都认为国王改正这项草案是由于那位邪恶的外来的黑王后的影响所致,诉苦声开始此起彼伏.

兽人们一直是排挤和鄙视的对象,但他们的命运会如何呢??,他们能重新获得家园吗??

兽人们是怎样得到Orsinium的 翻译者: YAHOOCOM


作者:Menyna Gsost

3纪元的399年,一个人站在山腰上鸟瞰着位于Menevia和Wayrest之间的那片广阔的土地.他是一位法官,一位在地方上供职的官员,也是一位公平执法的仲裁者.

"我了解你想申明对这片土地的所有权,我的伙计,"法官对他身边的人说到."我想我不会欺瞒你,但是我想告诉你的是你的对手也有着雷同的申明.这就使我的职责在此时起了作用."

"你把它称作我的对手?"领主Bowyn冷笑道,他指了指那边的兽人.阿谁生物用邪恶的眼神向这边看来,他的名字叫Gortwog gro-Nagorm.

"他拥有许多文件来证明他合法拥有此片土地,"仲裁者耸了耸肩说道."在我们的土地上也存在了不歧视任何特别种族的特别法令.在很多年以前我们曾经经过木精灵的摄政统治时期."

"但是如果一头猪或是一条食人鱼突然要求某件事物的所有权,它们也会和我一样有着雷同合法的权利吗."

"如果它们拥有合法正规的文件证明,我想是的."法官笑道."法令中很明白地指出了,如果两方因同时对某项事物的所有权而陷入僵局时,只有一种方式来解决,那就是决斗.虽然现在看来,这些法令有些陈腐了,但是我照旧有机会把它们拿出来,因为帝国委员会的委员们也认为它们依然有效."

"我们必需怎么做?"阿谁兽人问道,他的声音低沉而又刺耳,和帝国口音相比有些格格不入.

"第一个申明人就是您,Gortwog殿下.您可以选择决斗时所运用的盔甲和武器.第二个申明人就是您,Bowyn殿下,您可以选择决斗所在.如果你们乐意的话,你们可以选择由你们自己部下的勇士来代表你们决斗或是亲自上阵."

布莱顿人和兽人相互对视并默默地考虑着自己即将要做的决定.最后,Gortwog起首开口了,"在决斗场上的盔甲应该运用兽人甲而武器则运用普通的钢制长剑.武器和盔甲都不能附魔.决斗场上也应该禁止运用魔法."

"决斗所在要在我堂兄Berylth领主位于Wayrest的宫殿前院,"Bowyn轻蔑地看了Gortwog一眼而后又说到."你的同类不许到现场观看."

就这样,决斗的协议竣事了.Gortwog申明要亲自参加决斗而Bowyn,这个状态很好的年轻人,觉得如果要保持自己荣耀的话就必需亲自接受这个挑战. 但在决斗前的一星期他来到了堂兄Berylth领主的宫殿,觉得自己有必要进行更多的练习,于是他在此生中第一次买了套兽人甲.Bowyn身着那套身沉重的盔甲感觉到兽人甲严重限定了他的动作.

Bowyn和领主Berylth在院子中练习了10分钟左右后,Bowyn不得不绝了下来.他满脸通红并不绝地喘着粗气,沉重的盔甲已经使他恼羞成怒.在训练中他甚至没有一次击中他的堂兄而对方则已经击中拉他数十次之多.

"我不了解我该怎么做."晚饭后Bowyn说到.即便我了解有人可以熟练地运用此般武器和盔甲我也不能将他作为勇士去参加面对Gortwog的决斗."

领主Berylth同情地叹了一口气.正当仆人开始收拾桌上的碗碟时,Bowyn突然站了起来指着其中的一人说到:"你没有告诉我在你家里有一个兽人!"

"先生?"那人低声回应了一句,而后转向了领主Berylth,他了解他可能引起了某人的敌意.

"你是说Old Tunner?"领主Berylth笑道."他在我家里已经干了很多年了.你想要他给些兽人甲的运用训练吗?"

"您想要我怎么做?"Tunner奉迎地说到.

Berylith以前并不了解,他的这位仆人曾经是High Rock地区那支传奇的诅咒军团中的一员.他不仅了解怎样运用兽人甲,而且在他退休之前他曾是众多兽人的盔甲训练师.于是Bowyn就急切地把他任命为了自己的训练导师.

"您太用力了,先生,"那位兽人在他们开始训练的第一天说道."穿着重甲更容易拉伤自己,那些盔甲的关节只允许你做小小的弯曲,如果你一直和这些关节使劲的话那么你就没有力气去面对你的对手了."

Bowyn尝试着去遵循Tunner的指导,但很快他又失败了.紧接着,随着失败的次数增多他加强了训练的强度.但这样则使他更快精疲力尽.趁着他在训练间歇喝水的时候,Berylith告诉他的仆人们,如果他们对Bowyn的失败想笑的话,绝对不可以在他的面前展露出来.

在接下来的两天里,Tunner照例给了Bowyn很多高强度的训练.但他的夫人Elysora的生日很快的也来临了,Bowyn理所固然地享受了这次的宴会.红酒加上肥鹅,鱼子酱,涂着大片黄油的牛膝草是第一道菜;熏烤梭子鱼, 蜂蜜,野兔肉是第二道菜;切片的狐狸舌头,蘸着牡蛎汤的布丁,长豆是主菜;加着碎糖的冻冰则是作为了餐后的甜点.宴会后,Bowyn坐着,他疲乏的眼神突然看见了走进房屋的Gortwog和仲裁者.

"你们现在要干什么?"他大喊道,"离决斗不是还有两天吗?"

"Gortwog殿下要求我们今晚就举行决斗,"仲裁者说."当我的信使两天前到达的时候您正在进行训练,但是你的堂兄作为你的代表同意了这次决斗时间的变更."

"但现在我已经没有时间去召集我的支持者了."Bowyn诉苦道."而且我方才才吞咽下了一顿晚宴,这样我就会像一个弱者一样被杀死.堂兄,你怎么能不事先来和我说一声呢?"

"我已经向Tunner说过了,"Berylith红着脸说道,"按照现在这种情形你最好选择接受."

在决斗场四周的看客特别的稀疏.因为刚吃下大量的食品,Bowyn感到自己不能快速地移动了.当他穿上盔甲的时候他吃惊的发明,那些盔甲根本不听他的指挥.他每走一步那些盔甲就不绝地旋转以使他步履维艰.他越想控制这些盔甲他就越要回忆自己的训练过程.在战斗过程中可以说他是运用自己的大脑来进行进攻和防守的动作而不是通过身体的动作和谐.在战场上,他有生以来第一次透过兽人头盔来看外面的世界.

结果可想而知,他失败了.如果把击中对方的次数制成表格的话,那结果会更加难看.Gortwog成为了这场战斗的赢家,但Bowyn照旧在战斗竣事前抵抗了3个多小时.

"考虑到我们先祖的国土我将要把这片土地命名为Orsinium."胜利者说道.

在输掉了这场和兽人的决斗后Bowyn第一次想到的是,幸好他的家人和朋友没来观看这场战斗.他离开院子回家睡觉时他忽然想到了在傍晚时分Gortwog 和Tunner的对话.尽管他不明白他们的语言,但他照旧了解那两人相识已久.当那位布莱顿人在床上的时候,他的下人把阿谁年老的兽人带来了.

"Tunner",他很和善地说道,"请坦率地告诉我,你是希望Gortwog殿下胜利吧."

"您说的很对,"Tunner回答."但是我没有辜负您.您在战斗中的表现要比两天前好的多,先生.我不想Orsinium被一位没有经过战斗的国王得到."

Menevia和Wayrest-------------位于HIGH ROCK的两个地区.

Orsinium-----------兽人曾经的首都.在第一纪元被daggerfall和sentinel的联军摧毁.在第三纪元399年,兽人国王Gortwog通过决斗重新获得这片土地.

Gortwog---------------兽人的领袖,一位英雄人物.

关于传说中SETINEL邦国的第三王子的故事......................

夜幕下的Sentinel 翻译者: YAHOOCOM

作者:Boali

没有任何音乐从这家位于Sentinel的小酒馆中传出,固然除此之外照旧有一些杂音存在的:那些小心谨慎的低声对话;酒吧侍女在石地板上留下的轻声的脚步;还有那些正发出啧啧吃喝声的酒店常客们,他们的舌头正搭拉在酒瓶嘴上,眼睛空洞无物地盯着前方.在这种情况下,照旧有人能显示出自己的与众不同.阿谁穿着黑色天鹅绒斗蓬的红色守卫女子的目光足以让人感到惊奇,甚至是怀疑.在她目光的注视下一个陌生人走出了地下酒窖,他看上去特别的谨慎并没有任何出奇的举动;很快他走到了阴影下并和黑暗混为了一体.

"你是不是Jomic?"

那人是一个已到中年的矮胖子,他的脸看上去比他的实际年龄还要老.他朝前看了看后点了点头,而后他就回到了自己的座位上开始喝起酒来了.阿谁年轻女人走到了他身旁并坐了下来.

"我的名字叫Haballa,"她说完后取出了一小袋的金子并把他放在他的杯子旁.

"特别好,"Jomic含混地说道,他转过了头和她的目光相对."你想要谁死?"

她并没有转过脸,只是说道,"在这里谈话安全吗?"

"在这里他们从不关心别人的事情,他们只关心自己的.你甚至可以把你的胸甲取下,光着胸在桌上跳舞,就这样也没人会理睬的."那人笑着说道."那么你想要谁死呢?"

"其实我并不想要谁死,"Haballa说道,"我的真正目的是,哦,我只想把某个人..嗯,清理掉一会儿,而且要担保那人不会被受到伤害.你懂吗?因此我就上这儿找到在此行颇为专业的你,曾有人说过你是此任务最好的人选."

"哦?那么之前谁和你谈过呢?"Jomic含混地问道,他又喝起了杯中的酒水.

"一个我朋友的朋友的朋友."

"他们根本不了解自己在说些什么."阿谁男人诉苦道,"我早就已经不干了."

Haballa又轻轻地掏出了另一包金子紧接着又是一包,她把它们放在了那男人的手边.他看了她好一会儿,而后他把袋中的金币全倒在了桌上并开始数了起来.边数金币他边问道,"那么你想要谁被清理掉呢?"

"等一会儿好吗?"Haballa笑着说道,"在我们谈正事之前,起首我要了解你是否是足够专业.你不能伤害到那人,所以你必需要小心谨慎."

"你想小心谨慎?"男人制止了数桌面上的金币,"那好,我告诉你我曾经接过的一个任务--我的Arkay啊,的确让人难以信赖,20多年了,和那次任务有关的人中只有我活到了现在.那是在Betony战争之前的事了,你还记得吗?"

"那时我照旧个孩子."

"那是自然了,"Jomic笑着说道."每个人都了解Lhotun国王有个哥哥名叫Greklith,他已经死了.对吗?而他的姐姐Aubki则嫁给了Daggerfall王国的阿谁小伙子国王.但事情的真相是Lhotun国王有两个哥哥."

"真的吗?"Haballa的眼睛闪了闪,看上去好像很有兴趣的样子.

"这不是骗你的,"他咯咯地笑道,"阿谁虚弱多病的小伙子名叫Arthago,是老国王和王后所生的第一个儿子.身为长子他就理所固然地继承了国王的王冠,那时他的父母对此也没有什么担忧.但当王后又生下了两个王子后,他们觉得复活的儿子更适合继承王位.所以我和我的伙计们就接到了这个任务:我们把阿谁病弱的王子带走并把现场伪装成他是被Underking挟制的那样."

"我没有听明白"阿谁年轻的女人轻声说道.

"你固然不能完全明白,这是事情的关键之处,"Jomic摇着头说道."小心谨慎,就像你说的那样.我们把孩子放在了一个包里并把他丢进了一个古代遗迹的深处,就这样.没有什么好大惊小怪的,只是几个伙计,一只包,一根棍子."

"这就是我感兴趣的地方."Haballa说道."技巧.我的朋友...阿谁被带走的只是个虚弱的小王子,但那根棍子是干什么用的?"

"这是一个工具.一些事物在已往能发挥比现在更大的作用,这仅仅使得今天的人们能更好的运用它们.让我来解释一下:每个人身上平均有71处痛穴.精灵和虎人们的身体更加敏感,所以他们比人要多出3到4处.亚龙人和Sload人,他们大概有52到67处穴位."Jomic伸出了他那粗短的手指开始在 Haballa的身体上点了起来."6处穴位在你的前额,2处在你的眉部,2处在你的鼻部,7处在你的喉部,10处在你的前胸,9处在你的腹部,每只手臂上各有3处,在腹股沟处还有12处,4处在你的右腿还有5处在其它地方."

"一共是63处,"Haballa回答.

"不,不是的."Jomic说道.

"是的,我应该是正确的,"阿谁年轻女子大喊道,她因她的数学能力遭到质疑而感到愤怒."6加2加7加10加9加每只手的3处再加12加4加5,等于63."

"应该还有几处我没有说清."Jomic耸了耸肩说道."如果你想熟练掌握运用棍棒的技巧,最重要的一点是你必需要熟悉这些位于人体各部位的痛穴.如果你做的足够好的话,轻轻地一击也许就能夺人性命,而且死者身上不会留下任何淤痕."

"说的太好了."Haballa笑道,"那么至今都没人发明阿谁弃孩吗?"

"谁能发明?那男孩子的父母是国王和王后,他们现在早已不在人世了.他的兄弟姐妹一直都以为他是被Underking带走的.这就是所有人所认为的事实,而我的伙伴都已经死了."

"是自然殒命吗?"

"没有自然殒命会发生在海湾地区的,你应该也明白.我其中的一个伙计是喝了Selenu后死的;另一个则是被那场瘟疫夺去性命的,那场瘟疫同时也夺去了王后和Greklith王子的生命.还有一个是被破门而入的强盗所杀死.如果你要活下去的话就要像我这样,保持低调并活在人们的视线之外."Jomic已经数完了桌上的金币."现在你必需要说出阿谁和你谈过话人的名字,他是谁?"

"我想我最好现在就把他给你带来."Haballa说道,她站起了身,头也不回地大步走出了这家不知名的酒馆.

Jomic一口喝干了杯中的酒,随后也跟了出去.外面夜凉如水,海风不时地拍打着Iliac海湾的水面,被风吹起的残叶如碎片一样平常在半空中旋转着. Haballa从酒馆旁的一条小巷中走了出来,并向Jomic招了招手.当他向她走去时,一阵微风突然吹开了她身上的斗蓬,展现在他面前的是一件标有 Sentinel国王标志的盔甲.

阿谁矮胖子向后退了几步然后转身试图逃跑,但是她的速度太快了.一眨眼功夫他就发明了自己已经倒在地上,而且他的喉部已经被那女子用她的膝盖顶着.

"国王在登上王位后就一直在寻找你和你的同党,已经几年了,Jomic.虽然他没有给我细致的指示要我怎么看待你,但与你的谈话却使我想到了一个主意."

Haballa从她的腰带间取下了一根结实的棍棒!

一个醉鬼从酒馆里踉踉跄跄地走出来,他听到了从那黑暗的小巷里传来了一阵阵苦恼的哀鸣和低沉的耳语:"我们最好这样数.一,二,三,四,五,六,七......"

新手注释:
Greklith-------------Sentinel的王子.国王Camaron和王后Akorithi的次子.被一场瘟疫夺去性命.

Lhotun --------------现任Sentinel国王,国王Camaron和王后Akorithi的三子.在Greklith死后他就登上了王位,然后他开始寻找他那位失踪的哥哥Arthago,并追杀那些参与谋害Arthago的凶手.

Arthago------------Sentinel的王子.国王Camaron和王后Akorithi的长子.因为他从小体弱多病被认为不能继承王位,但他是长子.所以为了避免日后王位争夺的麻烦,他的父王和母后就雇人把他遗弃在了一个遗迹内,让他殒命.人们都以为他是被Underking带走的.

Underking------------可以翻译成"幽域之王",一个迷样的生物.有传言他是一位强大的巫妖.关于他的泉源有两个版本.一个是帝国版:他曾是一位背叛TIBER的战斗法师;还有一个是民间版:他曾是SKYRIM国王,在第一纪元被审判席击败后就躲在地下.第二纪元他又重新苏醒,并帮助了一位年轻人完成了对整个Tamriel大陆的征服,那位年轻人就是TIBER SEPTIM.为了洗刷在第一纪元被击败的耻辱,他让TIBER去进攻晨风大陆.但最后他对TIBER和平解决晨风的做法严重不满.总之说来,没有 Underking的帮助,TIBER也不可能征服整个大陆.有意思的是,虽然Underking对晨风有着强烈的仇恨,但他在2纪元547年却被审判席女神Almalexia召唤出来共同对抗来自Akavi流氓软件王陆的恶魔族打击.

Sload人---------------是释放Thrassian瘟疫的元凶,后来遭到Tamriel大陆各民族的报复而灭亡.

固然帝国的法律我们也要牢记..............

基本法规 翻译者: YAHOOCOM


作者:Anchivius, M.Z.F

漠视法律将得不到应有的保护.预先告诫:以下是Tamriel大陆最常用的法令和规章.你所在的行省或者公国也许有自己奇特的法律.做为一个帝国的公民,明白以下法规是你应有的权利和义务.

强行侵入


这项法令包括了(但不仅仅包括)打开,破坏,烧毁,魔法传送,或者用其它任何方法试图通过在魔法或者常规状态下锁住的,限定外人进出的门,窗,各种入口. 这种进入别人房子,公司或者特定的场所的行为将会视作非法行为.对这种行为的处罚通常是罚款或者禁闭,也可能是罚款和禁闭(二者兼有之).罚款和禁闭,或者兼有,或者兼无,它们对付这种非法侵入的行为是比力轻的处罚.试图强行侵入的犯法行为定义为任何被人察觉的企图(可能成功或者失败,也可能被人觉察到成功或者失败)打开,破坏,烧毁,魔法传送,或者用其它任何方法试图通过魔法或者常规状态下锁住的,限定外人进出的门,窗,各种入口.这种进入别人房子,公司或者特定的场所的行为(可能成功或者失败,也可能被人觉察到成功或者失败)将会视作犯法行为.

犯法阴谋

任何碰面,交谈或是集会透露出了(或是被人指认为有犯法动机的)对他人的犯法,或是间接对他人的犯法.对付这种犯法行为的处罚通常是罚款或者禁闭,也可能是罚款和禁闭(二者兼有之).

流浪

任何闲散,无秩序状态,乞讨或是无职业的,无金钱的,无家的(可能是职业,金钱和家(三者兼无);也可能是无职业;无金钱和家;无职业,无家;无职业,无金钱),或是被认定为闲散,无秩序状态,乞讨或是无职业的.处罚通常是罚款或者禁闭,也可能是罚款和禁闭(二者兼有之).

叛国罪

任何行为(直接或是间接的,或者是任何还没付诸实施的筹划,可能是直接或是间接地导致这种情况的出现)对封地上的统治者或是封臣,导致(或是被人指认将会发生的)对方在精神,肉体,意志上的伤害或是利用魔法伤害到对方.对付这种行为的处罚通常是死刑.

扒窃


任何盗窃或是在没有别人允许(包括纸面允许和口头允许)的情况下拿取他人的一样物品或是多样物品.这里他人可以指单人,也可以指一个群体,或者是一个有实体并且具备感知力的人物.对付这种行为的处罚通常是罚款或者禁闭,也可能是罚款和禁闭(二者兼有之).

偷窃(有时被称为盗窃罪)

任何盗窃或是在没有别人允许(包括纸面允许和口头允许)的情况下在别人的住所,公司或是别人合法拥有的场所内拿取他人的一样物品或是多样物品.这里他人可以指单人,也可以指一个群体,或者是一个有实体并且具备感知力的人物.对付这种行为的处罚通常是罚款或者禁闭,也可能是罚款和禁闭(二者兼有之).

以上这些就是法律专家们(例如我)日常所运用的最普通的法划定义.但是这些法规的定义和处罚却可以随着不同的地区和不同的情况所变动.在帝都,每个人都可以有合法的辩护律师(比如我);但在有些行省就可能没有云云健全的法律系统.也许随着时间的推移这种情况会有所改变吧.我们都希望这样.

最后的注释:

Tamriel帝国的法律系统的基础是建立在一项文明的,合理的信条上.这项信条是先知Marukh在第一纪元所发表的,在信条中他这样说:"在人们证明自己是清白之前,每个人都是有罪的."

========================================================================================================================================================
YAHOOCOM注: 看了帝国法规章程后我发明"流浪"这项罪名和英国在"圈地运动"时期执行的法令特别相似.当时的英国也有着这么一项法令:凡是没事情的,流浪的人都是有罪的.凭据他们的年龄层次他们可能被判监禁,鞭打或是被他人奴役,绞死...

传记笔记: Destri Melarg是一位众人皆知的历史学者和古代红色守卫诗歌的翻译家.Destri在第三纪元20年出生于Rihad城邦.在19岁的那年,他来到帝都进行学习.在那时只有极少数的红色守卫去过帝国行省,所以Destri就把自己的姓氏改成了Melarg,以便更好的融入当地的布莱顿人,诺德人以及黑精灵的文化圈.

在94年后当他去世时,他留下了大批未完成的历史文稿以及未被翻译的诗篇.这些未完成作品的残片中只有极少数能使后人理解.但是其中有一封未被寄出的信件却引起了我的细致,这封信的收件人是Melarg在帝都的出版商.为了更好的了解这位一生致力于把古红色守卫口头文化翻译成纸面上文字的学者,我决定要找到他的出版物.

Melius,这里应该被注明的,Melius Kane,他是Melar作品在帝都的出版商.

Melius,

这篇是我所写的系列丛书----"Hammerfell行省的英雄们"最终章的大纲.在里面我把Dendle的故事线给缩短了.我有自己的笔记,但是故事会因为各种引注而变长.令我惊奇的还有关于"五剑"的古老故事的突然出现.现在离"地狱年月"已经1000年了,但人们照旧继续信赖这些故事里所叙述的事情是真的.

一位四轮马车的主人和我坐在一起,听着这些古老的故事,抽着手中的烟斗.在讨论这些故事的时候,他告诉我故事叙述者曾经说过"五剑"中的其中一把在哥布林之门关闭的时候幸存了下来,现在就可能被藏在Hammerfel行省中的某处.这把剑是"五剑"中力量最弱的一把.但在故事中它的魔法性和黑檀木性照旧大大超越了现在的所有刀刃.
我把这个信息记在了本子上,一把黑檀木武器的砍削能力是空前的但我个人照旧无法信赖这世上还存在着比爆发之刃或是生命窃取之刀更强大的武器.Dendle甚至认为在一间位于Skaven乡间的美德之战会堂中,人们还遵照着古老的方法来制作Shehai或叫作灵魂之剑.

在网络这些故事的同时,有一次我也看到了一位年老的会堂主人制作Shehai的过程.但是如果把它称作灵魂之剑的话,那它的表现就太无力了,我甚至怀疑剑的形态是否正确.我不想侮辱这位年老的铸剑师傅.但它如果真是Shehai的话,我不敢信赖它能像一把真正的武器那样来运用.这里是我对新故事的概述:

在故事所发生的年月,Hammerfell行省正完全被红色守卫所占领.所有矮人的古代城市(矮人家园的幽灵之城)都成为了现在的Hammerfell行省的新都市.在那时.第二波巨型哥布林的打击来临了.但整个Hammerfell行省并没有充分的准备,除了少数忠诚的信徒外,所有的年轻人都在乡间的美德会堂中.

Hallin成为了唯一的Ansei.他组织起了在Hammerfell地区的所有军队.在战争失败后,为了把红色守卫的古老传统复位他给每位武士都诵读了"转轮之书".军队与哥布林大军的战斗暂时制止了,但那时事态的情形看起来很悲惨,就像Divad之歌中叙述的那样.不知何故,哥布林的军队可以有着源源不断的补给,包括它们的武器和士兵.如果照这样发展下去,Hammerfell地区的军队最后将会失败.

当时的美德之战会堂的老主人拥有着一份Divad遗嘱和遗愿的副份,他把里面的内容读给了Hallin听.遗嘱里叙说了"五剑"并没有消失,它们被分别藏在了五个被严秘防守的洞穴中.每一个洞穴都有一位主人的卫士--一位年老的盲眼Ansei守卫,除此之外还有一把锤子.

凭据这份遗嘱,Derik必需和一位有着善良贞洁之心的同伴进入洞穴,击败每一位Ansei然后召回宝剑.
Dendle在这里有着特别细致的说明.似乎可以看出,每一位洞穴主人都有着一项特别强大的特点--其中的一位在一刹那后动作形态会像猫一样,然后变成和猫一样的体态;另一位则有着出奇冷静的特点,他就像冰冻的假人(注:这里的假人指的是Golem,Golem是16世纪希伯来传说中有生命无情感的假人) 那样.

每一把剑上都有着一些信息,把这些信息集合在一起就可以了解怎样把"五剑"力量合一的方法.Derik在乡间的各个会堂中拜访运用刀刃的兄弟和运用灵魂之剑的少女,以便从中挑选和他一起执行任务的同伴.最后他终于逐个找到了自己的同伴并得到了所有的宝剑.

学习了每把剑上的信息后他们把"五剑"的力量合而为一.通过"五剑"的力量他们把哥布林孕育发生和入侵的时空给封印了.Hallin的同伴们为了防止被"五剑 "的光芒所致盲,他们把那五把剑一起给扔进了虚无之中.自此以后,巨型哥布林就永久被封印在了那片在我们的世界和它们的世界之间的虚无之中.

这片土地被拯救了,Hallin和他的同伴们(3个女人,2个男人)成为了Ansei并且在Hammerfell地区规复了Frandar Hunding的教义.

以上就是故事的大纲.我特别接待你和其他编辑对这篇大纲进行评论.

另外我所关心的一点是,你正在考虑运用更好的作家,例如Uthilla Abuhk或者是Casmyr Kreestrom.你想让他们来写我所研究过的那些故事.我能理解这种做法,用一些更有名气的作家是可以提高书籍的销量,但是你不能仅仅考虑这些. Abuhk和Kreestrom的确是很好的作家和诗人,但他们在写书之前必需要学习关于红色守卫真正的历史.如果你聘请我来给他们讲那些红色守卫的历史,那还不如直接让我来写.因为那样可以给你节省更多的时间.在你作最后的决定之前最好考虑下以上这些情形.

我希望这封信能顺遂到达你那儿.祝你的爱人,孩子们都能有好身体并天天快乐.

你老实的朋友,Destri Melarg

固然了,在海湾地区你也要防止变兽病!

变兽病 翻译者: YAHOOCOM

作者:未知

怎样才气使一个人对研究变兽病孕育发生兴趣呢?我曾经问过几个同事这个问题,后来发明他们都是遇见某种可怕的变兽者后才进入这个领域的.我也不例外.

在Skyrim行省,有一种防止熊人打击的古老方法就是磨平你住所四周树木上的犬属根.在我幼年时,那时的我还很愚笨(可能现在我还和以前一样愚笨吧), 我一直期待能遇到一只熊人,希望他能像人们所说的那么有震撼力和传奇色彩.我沿着森林中一系列奇怪的脚印追寻已往,直到脚印消失.那时的我心中并没有一丝的害怕,甚至没有想过如果熊人真的出现后我该怎么办.现在回想起这件事....以托尔胡子为誓,我为那此没有结果的调查而感到侥幸.

后来我的确看到了这种变兽者,但它不是熊人.它是一个狼人,一名"普通"种类的的狼人,就是在Tamriel大陆的任一角落都可以找到的那种.我的父亲是一名牧师,在每年冬季最严寒的日子里他都让那些在Falcrenth的托钵人和流浪者住到相对暖和的神庙地下室.我们还给他们准备了温暖的麦饭.我和我的兄弟姐妹们则特别热衷于在冬季的地下室进行这种慈善事业活动,因为在那里大家就像是在聚会那样.经常有旅行者说一些有趣或者古怪的奇闻异事,在那里的气氛也通常是轻松而又友好的,直到阿谁夜晚.

凭据已有的划定,如果有托钵人身体不适或者他们想要更好的休息而不是交谈和食品的话,他们可以去地下室最边上的床上睡觉.因为在那里可以更加安静一些.而大家那时都在享受着一首歌,我的妹妹Gethessa则随着歌声跳着舞.歌声制止了,但是一阵合唱的曲调却从地下室另一边的黑暗之中传来.人们有的喝醉了有的则不能理解那合唱声是怎么回事.过了大约1分种后人们才发明那阵声音并不是所谓的合唱,而是嚎叫.

人们对那嚎叫声都不是很关心,因为有一些年老的旅者经常会受到恶梦的困扰而发声.但是我父亲部下的一位牧师照旧走了已往试图去安抚那位嚎叫者.当他走进黑暗的那一刹那,我们都听见了另一种声音.那是狼的咆哮声,接着我们又听见了那名牧师的尖叫声.

"那是狼人!"那位年老的吟游诗人大喊了起来,刚才就是由他来指导大家唱歌的.整个地下室开始混乱了.

人们都惊慌失措,在这种情形下我推开了地下室的门并逃到了雪地之上.当我回头看时,我照旧能发明有不少大胆的人毅然冲入了黑暗之中与狼人搏斗(固然他们之中有不少醉鬼).他们全部,对,几乎瞬间被杀死了.

我的父亲在听到了动静以后就赶了过来并在最后一个幸存者逃出地下室后封住了地下窖门.那时有一位在Falcrenth法师公会的经历丰富的战斗法师,为了回报我父亲曾经对他的帮助,他进入了地下室并杀死了阿谁野兽.

"不是很困难"当他从地窖中出来后说到,他手中提着那只野兽的尸体."冬天对他来说应该也是一样的严酷."尽管他表现的十分的大胆,但很明显的可以看出,在他脸上和胸口的血迹并不仅仅来自他的敌人.

无论你听了怎样的传说,狼人在死后并不会变回原来的人形状态.那时候,我有了这样一个机会看着他那躺在雪地上冒着热气的尸体.固然,很快阿谁野兽的尸体就被拖走并烧毁了.他的牙齿上还残留着托钵人们的血渍,特别可怕,但他的爪子看起来更让我惊恐不已.现在我已经见过不少变兽者与假人,元素使或者其它一些不能被正常武器伤害的生物战斗.所以我推断变兽者们的爪子的作用应该相当于那些附魔后的武器.

在Black Marsh行省和晨风行省的南部沼泽地域生活着鳄鱼人.在Black Marsh行省和帝国行省,Elsweyr行省湿地的交界处还生活着狮人.Valenwood行省的鹰人则没有在别的行省被发明.猪人们更适应High Rock行省和HammerfeLL行省的气候.我前面提到过,熊人是Skyrim地区最常见的变兽者,在High Rock行省,帝国行省以及晨风行省的北部地区也能发明他们的踪迹.狼人则存在于每一个行省.第七种变兽者我从来都没见过,但我信赖我同事们的描述:那就是在Tamriel大陆四周海域中的鲨鱼人.

在这一生,我都致力于对变兽者的研究和归类.但当我试图去了解他们时,我发明我仍然像个被锁在地窖中的孩子那样,对他们的知识照旧那么的浅薄.例如,变兽病在感染后的第临时间内是可以被治愈的,但等过了阿谁时候,患者的命运就被注定了.我的熟人们没有一个治愈过经过第一次变身后的变兽者.在另一方面,我的一位同僚正在调查High Rock行省Glenpoint地区山地里的女巫集会,这些集会被传言有治愈变兽人的方法,但我对此抱怀疑态度.

也许他们在自己的命运被确定后才变的云云具有打击性吧.我曾经打开过一个狼人尸体的肚子,我发明在他的肚子里残留的草根和草莓的数量要多过动物肉.所以我的结论是:他们没必要打击并吃掉人类来使自己生存.固然,也可以说是变兽病让他们丧失理智的,或者说是变兽者们为了保护自己而随处传播这种疾病?我也不明白,可以肯定的说我们永久都不会明白因为我们都没有经历过变兽病.固然,如果我们得了那种病的话,一切都晚了.

还有那可怕的吸血鬼病!!

Iliac 海湾地区的吸血鬼( 第一章 ) 翻译者:YAHOOCOM


作者:未知

在Tamriel大陆生活着超过100种的吸血鬼.光Iliac海湾地区就生活了9种不同种类的吸血鬼,每一种都有自己奇特的力量和能力.我为什么了解这些信息不仅仅是因为我在生命的最后十年里一直都在研究这种疾病,更重要的是在17年前,我曾经是他们中的一员.

吸血鬼病是一种疾病,就像脑膜炎和霍乱那样,但是它比前两种疾病要更具危险性.一个人成为吸血鬼有可能是受到某种魔法物品的作用,或者是被某位强大的巫师所诅咒;但此疾病最常见的感染方法就是被一个吸血鬼啃咬或者抓伤.在发作之前患者不会有任何症状,但是有一点例外----就是患者在被吸血鬼打击后在深夜会被恶梦所困扰.

经过两到四天后,疾病开始发作.但那时,患者照旧一个普通人,大部分神庙和教堂中的牧师可以将此病移除,并不留下任何后遗症.

现在我已经不记得垂死的感觉了.我当时是一个不知名的骑士公会里的一个卫兵.有一天,当地一个贵族的女儿被一位神秘的男人所绑架了,而我的队长已经找到了他的藏身所在.我奉命独自深入阿谁黑暗的地牢去寻找那位被绑架的姑娘.找到了姑娘后,我发明她已经死去,她的尸体颜色像白色的雪一样平常,体内的血液已经被吸的一滴也不剩了.那时,我明白了那位神秘男人到底是什么人物了.但不幸的是,在我找到出口前他就发明了我.在打架的过程中他挖去了我手臂上的一大块皮肉. 后来我终于设法逃离了阿谁地方,现在回想起来真是心有余悸.我很庆幸自己能够活下来.

回骑士公会的旅程大提要五天时间.所以我决定找个地方好好休息一下,那样也可以使我手臂上的伤口复原,防止它继续恶化.现在我已经记不起那天夜晚的梦境的具体内容了-----但是梦境中可怕的情景却使我不能够拒绝.我醒来后大声叫唤.第二个夜晚,在阿谁离我目的地很近的阿谁小旅馆,我睡的很沉而且没有做任何的梦.第三晚过后,我死了.

固然,那时我并不了解我已经殒命.我在一张铺着天鹅绒温暖的床上昏昏睡去,但当我醒来时我发明自己正躺在一间停尸房里的一张潮湿的石板上.昏沉中我打开了停尸房的大门,来到外头.在这个义冢不远处有座我所熟悉的小镇,于是我就游荡了已往.那时正值深夜,因此大街上几乎没有人影.我停了下来开始看一张公共通告,在通告中我发明那天的真实日期比我记忆中的要晚了两个星期.

正当我迷惘之际,我突然发明了一个姑娘.我认识她,她就住在这个镇中我最喜欢的那家旅馆里.她慢慢地向我走来,我走了已往向她打了声招呼,但她却没有理睬我.我叫了声她的名字,她转过了身,面带笑容,但她脸上的表情却好像说她并不认识我.我在去阿谁神秘男人藏身处之前曾拜访过她的旅馆,而她现在竟然不认识我!

我告诉了她我的名字.但她却生气地告诉我别拿她开玩笑:我并不像阿谁拜访过她旅馆的大胆骑士,而且我已经死了.我心里百感交加,我想顿时告诉她这并不是一个玩笑,我现在的外貌已经不像从前的我了.显然,她对我的死去感到悲伤,我所以也被感动.垂垂地我理解了我现在的身份,我被此惊呆了.突然一种强烈的本能感超越了我的理智---饥饿.我不加思索地扑向了她并撕裂了她的喉管.我吮吸着她的鲜血直到她的尸体的颜色也变成白雪那样,就像我在阿谁神秘男人的地牢下见到的那样.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Iliac 海湾地区的吸血鬼( 第二章 ) 翻译者: YAHOOCOM

作者:未知

在第一章里我讲述了我变成吸血鬼的经过和我第一次捕杀的猎物.这可能会使我的读者受到惊吓,因为我的第一个猎物是我在普通人时候的一位朋友.在我所听过的故事里,朋友通常不会成为第一个猎物.

我在小巷中丢下了那具雪白的尸体,之后我向我认为唯一的安全所在跑去,那就是墓地.在变成不死之身的最初两天中,我一直在考虑我的命运并且没有吸任何血液.饥饿感随之袭来,但我很快发明我在某方面的能力得到了加强:我变得更有力量,更加强壮,更加敏捷.而且我得到了一些新的能力,在我照旧骑士时我曾看到过一些强大的法师运用过它们.接下来,我又得到了一样新能力,那就是对疾病的免疫.这对我去那些被瘟疫残虐的城市(例如jackal)很有用.

在得到新能力的同时我也发明了自己的弱点.我不能在阳光下呆太长的时间----暴露在阳光底下多几秒中就会使我严重地灼伤.同时进入那些神庙和其它祭神的地方都会使我苦恼万分.最糟糕的一点,就是我对血液有了强烈的依赖性.如果每晚我不杀一只温血动物来补充血液的话,饥饿感就会不绝地折磨我,我身上那些伤口也永久不会痊愈.

那时我必需要接受这种命运,难道我喜欢把自己变成一个夜晚的吸血怪物吗?只在夜晚活动是不太可能的,因为这样可能造成很多不方便.但我不会每晚都猎杀人类,我需要的仅仅是一些温血动物.兽人的血液特别鲜美,就像营养丰富的肉汤那样;如果拿老鼠的血液作为正餐的话觉得味道太甜了一点;狼人的鲜血也很美味, 味道介于人类和野兽之间.美味的鲜血能使你心情愉快.

在我死后一个月,我享受着我一生中最美好的时光.但在一个夜晚,我接到了一封信,信是从某个"家族"的成员那里寄过来的.好奇心驱策着我去一家旅馆里和他碰面了.在那里,他告诉我属于一个叫作"Montali"的吸血鬼部落.为了更好的让我为家族服务,那位在旅馆的家族成员开始对我进行吸血鬼能力和技巧的训练.

尽管我不能十分的确定,但通过猜测我认为吸血鬼部落应该是由地理情况和自身能力来决定的.Montalion家族的成员有着传送魔法的能力,另外八种吸血鬼家族也有着自身奇特的能力.

我的导师(这个头衔是他自称的)在我每次执行完任务后都会抱以祝贺,他对我的信任感也与日俱增.如果我问他问题的话,他会告诉我Montalion家族最近的盟友,谁被利用以及谁被围捕.但最后惊恐感却占据了我,因为所有敌对的吸血鬼家族都在吸食着Tamriel大陆的鲜血.

我开始惊慌了.我想尽快地找到治愈吸血鬼病的方法,但每一本书或者每一句听说都告诉我吸血鬼是永久不能治愈的.所以我试图杀死我自己,但在死前我想要把 Montalion家族也拉下水.我增加了家族明令禁止的工会,并搞砸了每一个家族任务.我认为我的导师应该会很快和我敌对起来.没想到的是,他只是比以前更加安静了,也不向我提供一些信息.但仅此而已,他并没有什么有敌意的举动.就好像他根本不关心的那样.也许他以前见过和我有类似行为的吸血鬼吧.

他为什么不打击我?事实是拥有不死之身的人也有着永恒的耐心.

最终他拒绝给我指派任何任务了.我甚至不和我说话,但他却从没有离开那家旅馆.我可以随意进出他的房屋,但他只是看着并不和我说任何话.后来我又接到了第二封信.

有一些人和我一样.了解吗?他们以前都曾是吸血鬼,我了解怎么找到他们.我们也特别的有耐心:我们研究着吸血鬼病.看着,听着并匿名打仗了一些想要规复人性的吸血鬼.

竣事吸血鬼的诅咒是可能的,但是这会特别的危险.一旦你被吸血鬼病所附身,你就不能逃离那真正的危险.

==========================================================================================

最后让我们来看一看海湾地区的著名英雄Othrok男爵吧!!!!!!!!!!

Usurper的失败 翻译者: YAHOOCOM


作者:Palaux Illthre

在每年日晓的第5天,Dwynnen领地的人们都要一起庆祝一个叫"Othrok tide"的节日,正是这位从High Rock荒野里走出并具有传奇色彩的人物击溃了在Wightmoor城堡里的不死军队.他所以也成为了Dwynnen地区的第一位男爵.现在很少有人会去信赖阿谁传说,但Dwynnen领地中的Othrok男爵的确成为了High Rock行省历史中的一位真正的英雄.

大部分在Dwynnen的居民都会告诉你关于阿谁传说的事.那是发生在好久好久以前(文献案卷保管人们都认为是发生在3纪元的253年).那年, Dwynnen的人们都被一个巫妖以及他部下的那些由僵尸,吸血鬼,鬼魂以节骷髅兵所组成的大军支配.在受到了神灵们的祝福后,Othrok指挥了一支由人类和动物组成的军队击溃了殒命军团.他把繁荣和和平又带回给了这片土地,今后这片土地一直保持着迅速地发展势头.几年后,他又指挥着他弱小的领地中的领民们对抗强大的Camoran Usurper,最后他拯救了整个Tamriel大陆.

拥有击败Camoran Usurper云云的功绩,这个男爵无论获得多少荣誉都不算过分.在3纪元267年,Camoran Usurpe的军队无情地向High Rock行省的北部扫荡,最后被一个现在叫做Dwynnen的地区所牵制.那时那里的地域面积比今天的Dwynnen要小---但它拥有着一个海港,那时有一场叫作"火浪之战"的战斗就发生在海岸边.但事实上那场战斗并没有发生在Dwynnen地区里,因为敌人对男爵的参战抱以轻视的态度.

Camoran Usurper在那时已经依靠着庞大的军队占领了Hammerfell行省和Valenwood行省.传说中他部下的军队满是由一群不死生物和 daedra所组成,但在占领了上面两个行省后,他把大部分军队都替换成了红色守卫和木精灵士兵.据推测,Usurper是在Arenthia召唤了大量的不死生物和daedra,然后在占领的过程中慢慢地把那些不死士兵替换成占领地区的士兵.在Valenwood行省中增加Usurper军队的大部分都是雇佣兵.

在266年的初期,Usurpe流氓软件王军的触角已经抵达了High Rock行省,但当地的人们却对侵犯者没有任何的抵抗直到第二年的来临.历史学家们指出有两个因素导致当年High Rock行省的迟疑不决.第一,行省力量最强的海湾地区被一群不合适的君主们所统治---Wayrest邦国和Sentinel邦国的国王在当地属于少数派;而Daggerfall邦国则因为国内的意见不合而一分为二:Helena和她的堂兄Jilathe各自管理着自己的领地;Reich Gradkeep领地(现在是Anticlere地区)的领主在266年末病死了.简单的说,就是没有领袖人物来联合整个行省的力量对抗Usurper的军队.固然在行省内照旧有一些影响力比力大的君主(至少有八位,就是传说中的"八位背叛者"),但他们为了保全自己的领地而和Usurper秘密签下了联盟协议.

导致High Rock行省在当时毫无生气的第二个因素是行省与帝国间的关系太过疏远.那时的帝国皇帝是自Septim王朝开创以来第一位既不是布莱顿人又没在High Rock度过自己童年时光的皇帝.皇帝Cephorus二世看待High Rock行省的态度和他的堂兄Uriel四世大不一样.Uriel四世特别重视High Rock行省的人民,就连当年的疯子皇帝Pelagius三世对布莱顿人的待遇都比其他种族要来的高;帝国皇帝的表亲以及兄弟们自从帝国建立以来就一直统治着High Rock.但Cephorus不一样,他是一个诺德人,所以他比力看重Skyrim行省和晨风行省.在High Rock的人们都有着赞成Camoran Usurper对抗帝国皇帝的想法.

但男爵和他的那些并不着名的盟友们(Ykalon,Phrygia和Kambria的领主)改变了这种想法.因为不断有消息传来报告Usurper的军队正用着野蛮的手段看待俘虏以及猖獗践踏那些被他们占领的土地.这些消息大多属实并很快在他的领地和那些中立的地区内传播开来.几个月后,一支无比庞大的舰队在Iliac海湾边上集结.大概只有皇帝Uriel五世侵犯Akavi流氓软件王陆时的舰队才气与之相比.

High Rock行省内的联军击败Camoran Usurpe流氓软件王军的经过足以够的上写一本传奇书籍了.也许应该把经过留给大家们来想象吧.可能是当时的天气帮助了联军,如果真是这样的话那也可以说是神灵的介入了.

Othrok男爵神圣的目的就是"Othrok tide"节日的主题.诗人Braeloque曾写到,"想要找到事情的真相,最聪明的办法就是先看小说".

新手注释:
Dwynnen-------------位于High Rock行省的一个地区.
