Wulf, the fifty second Emperor of Tamriel, husband of Rigmor Sigunnsdottir, The Chosen Queen, and father to Empress Kintyra Cyrodiil III, was a complex figure. His love for Rigmor was all consuming and is celebrated in countless bardic stories, poems and songs. It was not the only influence that shaped the man who would be […]


I am called Wulf. At least that is the name I chose for myself when waiting in line to have my head lopped off. I thought it was better than appearing on the Imperial list as “Eye Dunno”, which was my first impulse. That joyous occasion happened on Sundas, 17th Last Seed, 4E 201. I […]

Fredas, 15th Last Seed, 4E 201

Darkwater Crossing: Arrested by Imperial Army. Last Fredas I was arrested by Imperial Soldiers under suspicion of being a Stormcloak or Stormcloak sympathiser.  I was told this by Ralof, a fellow prisoner who escaped Helgen with me. I have no recollection of the event as it occurred before I awoke on the carriage. Apparently the […]

Sundas, 17th Last Seed, 4E 201 Part One

Helgen: Bureaucracy, bravery and a dragon’s arrival. I awoke aboard a carriage about ten minutes out of Helgen. The first words I ever remember hearing were from Ralof, a Stormcloak soldier, “Hey, you. You’re finally awake.” How long was I asleep? Where am I? WHO AM I? As I sat there confused and feeling a […]

Sundas, 17th Last Seed, 4E 201 Part Two

Helgen: Unwinnable battle, fight for survival, escape. Ralof recovered quickly and ran to an intact tower where he paused and yelled for me to follow. I staggered though the door to join him knowing we were far from safe. We came across Ulfric inside the tower. He appeared as calm as if on a Sundas […]

Sundas, 17th Last Seed, 4E 201 Part Three

Riverwood: A walk, a talk and a new hairy ally. Ralof told me proudly of his love for Skyrim and his home town, Riverwood. How his sister ran the mill with her husband and why his family supported the Stormcloaks. I was half listening but was also concentrating on the thick forest that seemed an […]

Morndas, 18th Last Seed, 4E 201 Part One

Whiterun: Racism on display. Surprise in the crate! New ability discovered. New task given. The walk to Whiterun was unspectacular except for one thing, the beauty of the countryside. Meeko seemed to think a lot of the trees along the way looked thirsty so he watered as many as he could. Looking at Whiterun from […]

Morndas, 18th Last Seed, 4E 201 Part Two

Bleak Falls Barrow: Undead, puzzles and Dragon Runes. I have done two crypts so far, this one being the first. I encountered new things in this one so my travels through it are far more detailed than required in later ones. This journal is to record what I learn and deduce. It contains knowledge useful […]

Tirdas, 19th Last Seed, 4E 201

Whiterun: Fought Dragon, learned Thu’um, summoned, purchased house, made Thane, met and equipped Lydia. Meeko woke me fairly early in the morning by licking my face. Not very hygienic but effective. After a good breakfast we headed outside just in time to see a large Redguard step right in the middle of Meeko’s deposit from […]

Middas, 20th Last Seed, 4E 201

Whiterun, Ivarstead, High Hrothgar: Bandits, Greybeards, wasted time, Sent on mission. I awoke in the morning to the smell of food. I soon found myself at the table with enough piled on my plate to feed two large men or one large white dog. Not wanting to offend Lydia I crammed a much as I […]
