Skyrim Background Reading – Elder Scrolls Books!

While browsing the interweb the other day – searching for interesting Skyrim goodies – I came across this book. The Infernal City is set in the interlude between The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (40 years after the events of Oblivion).

Background Reading for Skyrim: The Infernal City

The Infernal City - Skyrim Background Reading

I think that this is the perfect way to prepare for Skyrim – and help you to get a feel as to how Tamriel has changed after the events of Oblivion.

But mosty importantly it gives you something fun and Elder Scrolls (Skyrim) related to do while you wait for the release!

Here is a review of the book:

“What is it outlander? I haven’t much time.

Oh Nerevarine! Your honour, forgive me I did not recognise you in that enchanted daedric helm. I have news sire, whilst your service to the dunmer race has been celebrated by the inhabitants of Morrowind, House Telvanni has a further request: that you procure a book entitled ‘The Infernal City’ from the imperial library. Here, let me mark it on your map.

Originally penned by a Bosmer by the name of Greg Keyes at the beginning of the third era, it prophesises a wonderous story, never heard before across the lands of Tamriel. From the wretched swamps of the Black Marsh to the arid sands of Elsweyr, the glory of the empire and the struggles of the native races are vivdly portrayed. It also details a mysterious floating island, but is it from a far away province? Or from oblivion itself? We have yet to find out, and this why the House Telvanni MUST get hold of this book. Who knows what evil could be spawned if it got into the hands of the Mythic Dawn!

There is much to be learnt from this great tome, you will gain points in such skills as alchemy, alteration, and speechcraft from the main character a female Breton. As you read deeper you will discover the swiftswim spells and water breathing powers of the argonian, the inherent agility of the redguard, and the resist fire spell of the scamp, plus many many more.

Take the stilt strider to Vivec immediately and then the boat to the Imperial Waterfront in Cyrodiil, there is no time to waste!

You received item: ‘The infernal city, a review’ (fortify buying impulse 10pts for 30 seconds on self)

Your journal has been updated. ”

    200 years after*

    • Thanks for the comment Mr Dildo! I should have worded that better! Skyrim is set 200 years after Oblivion and The Ifernal City is set 40 years after Oblivion (and 160 years after Infernal City!) 🙂

      I hope I haven’t further confused matters,
      Owain
