Notes on Yngol Barrow
A scholar's transcription of ancient Nord writings in a Skyrim barrow

What a peculiar place the barrow turned out to be. I hadn't explored for very long before reaching this elaborate room and gate locking me from going further into the crypt.

I confess it - I'm relieved! This place puts the fear of Oblivion into me. There are some carvings in this room. I'll attempt to transcribe them for the College so I have something to show for this effort.

All was so in Atmora

land of truth and our home

Man in his throne,

so should he be

Whale in the sea,

so should he be

Eagle in Sun's Sky,

so should he be

Snake in the weed

so should he be

Sorrow! For the Sea-Ghosts took Yngol

Prize Brother of Sail from Atmora's Fleet

And none on land

nor sky, nor sea

would ever again

be as should be

Fascinating, these ancient Nords. I wonder what other secrets are hidden here? Surely there can't be harm in trying to go a little further, and there is a lever here which must open the gate beyond.
