Tamriel Rebuilt 15.12 released! http://www.tamriel-rebuilt.org/?q=content/tamriel-rebuilt-1512-release

Previous Kalpa: >>44483058
>>
I really had a question I was going to ask last thread, but it was dead when I got to it. And now I can't remember it. Great.
Have some Ray Lederer art.
>>
Is Hermaeus Mora the most powerful of the daedric princes or does he just happen to be seemingly omnipotent and nearly omniscient due to being the prince of forbidden knowledge and so forth and/or because he is the most mysterious?
>>
>>44646466
>most powerful of the daedric princes

Always triggers me desu. Power is relative and comes in many shapes and forms. There's really no way to measure it and start ranking the Daedra or Aedra.
>>
>>44646466
>most powerful
Don't. There's no clear answer, though if you absolutely want me to give you something, I'll just say that Nocturnal is the Ur-dra.
>>
Hey, could Mannimarco survive in some fashion through the end of a Kalpa? Could he then influence things in said future Kalpa?

I mean he's a God with a capital G but this TES, there a lot of them.
>>
>>44648714
Considering he/it survived, and died, and end the warp in the west, I'd say he pretty much exists outside of the universe at this point.

>>
>>44648714
I don't think it's necessarily going to happen, but given the amount of ways you supposedly can enter the new Kalpa, it wouldn't surprise me if it was possible.

>>44649497
It probably smells pretty rank.
>>
>>44649497
I mean, he simultaneously exists through multiple different time lines. If he can be part of all probable outcomes in a dragon break, I don't think it's too far fetched.

Sithis is the devil

where is the evidence to suggest that the yokudans/redguards are from a previous kalpa???
>>
>>44653432
It's mostly based on one interpretation of the Monomyth, especially of the section about Yokuda. Also some ESO shenanigans that I'm not too aware of. And the last touch; mix in some comments by MK.

It's a theory like many other things.

Breton would be Dunmer. Why would a Breton be fat? Their merrish blood keeps them Ottermode.

That really fat dude would also be a Colovian. Does anybody have that picture of that fat Colovian noble?

I'd switch Nord and Orc, and make Breton into Colovian.
Not just because of Richton and that picture, but in Cyrodil, it's customary to eat 4 meals a day.

He seems pretty in character, Telvanni are jerks, and dislike both Religion and Politics. A small joke in Morrowind was how the Temple in the Telvanni district in Vivec is used for storage, and is covered in cobwebs.

Wizards in general have always had a detached outlook on divinity and better understanding of the metaphysical than common folk, stretching back to Daggerfall.

That would make sense if it was just some random Telvanni mage.
Divayth Fyr seems far from the type of man who would rant about common opinion.
The book is just another example of Zenimax saying "hey remember this guy? look how much we appreciate the lore guys!
>>
>>44670246
If he's the type to be in House Telvanni, he's the type to dislike religion. I could see him write that, if just to set the record straight.

Not quite. It is a bit of that, but it would also be really weird to have Morrowind and not have him or any of his writings. I would be more pissed if he didn't make it into the game.

unrelated but the second to last paragraph on that link says
>We must keep in mind that the Daedra are incapable of creation. They can only imitate, manipulate, and exaggerate.

if that's true then how do Daedric artifacts come about?
>>
>>44670838
if i remember correctly, Daedric artifacts are pieces of the prince themselves, so its not really "creation", but more like splitting a part of themselves off
>>
>>44670246
He was younger then. Wild times.

>>44670328
>If he's the type to be in House Telvanni, he's the type to dislike religion. I could see him write that, if just to set the record straight
Well seeing as he refused to be on the Telvanni Council, and never partakes in the Houses' politics, I think it is quite clear that Divayth does not take House Telvanni very seriously.
Fyr really doesn't seem like the man to take much of anything seriously for that manner. The guy collects treasures for the pure enjoyment of watching thieves fail to steal it. He would probably laugh at someone who so surly tries to argue the semantics behind "Good Daedra".
>but it would also be really weird to have Morrowind and not have him or any of his writings
Divayth Fyr doesn't have writings, at least before ESO that is. The man clearly doesn't like drawing attention to himself, he's practically a hermit. A few brief mentionings in writings would of course be warranted to acknowledge the fact that he still exists, but this http://www.imperial-library.info/content/racial-motifs is really not a correct usage of his character.
ESO doesn't even feature Vvardenfell so an actual appearance is really not called for until they do. I rather hope they don't as most things that actually find themselves featured in the game tend to be woefully disappointing.
>pic related
The fucking glorious Prophet Veloth achingly shoehorned into an uneventful quest.
>>44671001
>but more like splitting a part of themselves off
If that were actually the case they would be a creation.
Just because something appears physically disconnected does not mean they are not attached to the whole. What do you think is meant when something is "bound" to a daedra?
It is not true that the Daedra are incapable of creation, rather they refuse to partake in it.
>>
Have you guys ever roleplay as older characters?
>>
>>44670838
Keep in mind that Daedric artefacts tend to be mundane items altered and manipulated by the Princes, or at least that's the form they take.
Spellbreaker is a Dwemer shield.
The Ebony Mail is just that, a ebony cuirass.
Volendrung is a Dwemer mace.
The Oghma Infinium was written by Xarxes.

>>44673727
Older as in of older age, or older as in a previous character?
>>
>>44673570
>The fucking glorious Prophet Veloth achingly shoehorned into an uneventful quest.
Same thing with Shalidor. He, despite being dead, just kind of shows up and does some completely forgettable thing. He was a more interesting character in Arena, where he's only the mysterious wizard who built cool shit.
>>
>>44673727

In Oblivion I played a bad-tempered middle-aged Bosmer monk from a coastal village in Valenwood. I liked the character a lot but since RP in OB is limited and hand-to-hand is shit, it didn't work out so great.

He might seem like he knows everything, but how did the Skaal keep their secrets from him?
