Thendaramur Death-Blossom answers questions on lore

I am having trouble understanding the teachings of Boethiah. I have done some searches but am only coming up with the basic definitions. What are the rituals and practices of followers/cultists of Boethiah? What is Boethiah's main goal among us? – marinsam

Thendaramur Death-Blossom says: "Boethiah tests our worthiness! Only the victorious are worthy, and victory is the only value. You wish to know of our rituals and practices? Come to one of our Obstreperances and accept the challenge of the Gauntlet. We will test you, marinsam—test you to the utmost! Seek out Dragonstar Arena! Do you think you can prevail? Or do you lack the daring even to try?"


Why are Boethiah and Molag Bal arch enemies? I find these two the most interesting out of all the Princes and it's even more interesting that they're enemies. - kevkev21

Thendaramur Death-Blossom says: "Molag Bal is Boethiah's enemy because he is weak! His methods are crude, his schemes no deeper than triple-dealing, and he fails to recognize that sometimes you must build in order to destroy. Boethiah is more than merely cruel and ruthless—the Dark Warrior is also cunning at need, patient till culmination, and wise to the follies of mortals. Molag Bal seeks for strength only in himself, while the enlightened Boethiah seeks also for strength in others. All praise Boethiah, He-Who-Destroys and She-Who-Erases!"


How do the Orcs view Boethiah? Do they revere her for turning Trinimac and his followers? Or do they loathe her for it? – SaxonsLaugh

Thendaramur Death-Blossom says: "Trinimac was vain and arrogant, and he and his followers paid for their weakness by being transformed to show what they truly are: brutish Betmer without guile or finesse. How do the Orcs view Boethiah? From a great distance, if they were wise—but we already know the answer to that!"
