Murkmire Q&A[edit]

While this page has been altered to incorporate the reference to the Dreamsleeve in the latest Loremaster's Archive, the italicized section from which it is drawn is seemingly not intended to be considered in-game lore as it deals to and focuses on Lawrence Schick, who is not a denizen of Tamriel nor a character in the Elder Scrolls series. As such, it seems to be separate from the main part of the Loremaster's Archive. — J. J. Fullerton talk﴿ 02:50, 26 October 2018 (UTC)

I think it's fine as it is. --AKB Talk Cont Mail 02:58, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
I had the same concern as Fullerton on Discord, in the sense that it was of course a tongue-and-cheek way of introducing the LA. Schick isn't an actual person in the universe, but the concept may still be valid. I think at least something about the transmission from the new LA belongs on the page.
Maybe frame it around being a form of long-distance communication in general, as we know past LA questions have used the Dreamsleeve to "send" their letter to host of the LA that week. This would cover those instances: "Dreamsleeve "transmission" is a method of communication which has been used to contact those across vast distances." --Jimeee (talk) 08:46, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
I agree this is a better wording. I changed it on the page but left the "has been mentioned" part because it sounds a bit odd to not say it now that the sentence is in the notes. —Dillonn241 (talk) 09:28, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
Current version looks good to me. I had similar concerns about its inclusion but it's certainly worth noting. —Legoless (talk) 13:23, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
I agree with the current wording. I believe this resolves my previous concerns. — J. J. Fullerton talk﴿ 06:19, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
