Ancient Daedric Style is a crafting motif released with the Deadlands DLC. It is obtainable via the Antiquities system. The associated style material is Pristine Daedric Heart.

Unlike other Ancestral styles, this motif is not based on the original Daedric racial motif from the base game. Various Daedra in the Deadlands can be seen wearing this style, such as Rynkyus.

Motif Pages[edit]

All pages are excavated from dig sites in Deadlands via the Antiquities system. The Leads for these pages can be obtained from chests found with Treasure Maps:

Codex Entries[edit]

Alongside being readable as books, these motif pages are also accompanied by a short antiquity Codex Entry:

Chapter Codex Entry
Ancient Daedric: Axes (link) Some treatise on the axe-making, it seems? Intriguing. I wouldn't have expected to find some ancient Dark Elf text in the Deadlands, but with all that's happening in Tamriel and beyond nowadays, I shouldn't be surprised. —Verita Numida
Ancient Daedric: Belts (link) Seems this book caught fire at some point. No surprise there. The Deadlands are hard on paper. The only reason any of it remains is the Dark Elf binding. They know a thing or two about lava. —Ugron gro-Thumog
Ancient Daedric: Boots (link) The text here is curious. Perhaps it's the smudging, but I'd say this writing hews closer to the ancient texts of the Chimer than the more recent Dark Elf style. Note the length of the brush strokes and broader spacing. This is very old indeed. —Reginus Buca
Ancient Daedric: Bows (link) This is remarkable! Mortal text ferreted away in a Daedric realm for gods know how long! I wager this dates back to the early years of the Tribunal. If I'm right, it means my theories of Dark Elven fire-retardant parchment are true! —Amalien
Ancient Daedric: Chest Pieces (link) Most of this text is smeared and illegible. Like it got caught in a rain storm or washed away in a flood. For the longest time I thought the Deadlands was simply a blanket of fire that stretched in every direction. Seems it's a bit more complicated. —Verita Numida
Ancient Daedric: Daggers (link) No small amount of blood on this. Hard to tell if it's Daedric or mortal. Orc and Dremora blood stains the same. Same goes for Dark Elves, I wager. Just be wary about where you store those pages. Banekin can smell blood no matter how old it is. —Ugron gro-Thumog
Ancient Daedric: Gloves (link) This book is black as coal. Separating the ink from the ash may prove difficult. I suspect it will be worth the effort, though. Whoever wrote this was a Dark Elf of no small fortune. The quality of the materials is opulent by early Dark Elf standards. —Reginus Buca
Ancient Daedric: Helmets (link) These pages are just shredded, eh? Looks like some hungry Daedroth mistook it for a juicy banekin. Still, there's quite a lot here. See the diagrams? I thought it was a rendering of Mehrunes' Razor, but it may be a different dagger entirely! —Amalien
Ancient Daedric: Legs (link) See these notes in the margins? Looks like some Hexos treasure hunter got their hands on it for a bit. Couldn't have been long. The notes end here, near these fang-punctures. Can't tell if they came from an Ogrim or a Daedroth. Either way, it was fatal. —Ugron gro-Thumog
Ancient Daedric: Maces (link) I can't imagine how these pages withstood centuries of exposure without being destroyed. They're lightly singed, granted. But on the whole, they seem almost untouched. They may have rested in some Dremora's treasure room for a time. —Verita Numida
Ancient Daedric: Shields (link) Someone put a lot of effort to conceal this. Maybe they intended to dig it up later? Unfortunately, the ground in the Deadlands never stays in one place for too long. We're just lucky it didn't fall down a crevasse or burn in lava. —Gabrielle Benele
Ancient Daedric: Shoulders (link) Sad to think that the person who wrote this likely never escaped. Personally, I'd love to explore the crags and gullies of a Daedric realm! Sure, the wheels of my chair would probably catch fire immediately, but nothing ventured nothing gained! —Amalien
Ancient Daedric: Staves (link) You see the seal of the Tribunal in the margins here? It's a brave Elf would would travel the Deadlands bearing a symbol like that. Mehrunes Dagon has many enemies, but I hear he hates Sotha Sil and Almalexia above all others. —Gabrielle Benele
Ancient Daedric: Swords (link) Looks like an Ogrim used this as a table napkin. Luckily, some of the text remains. Diagrams of a sword, too. Those Ogrims are ugly beasts. Even so, it's hard to stay mad at them. They're sort of adorable, right? Just me? Fair enough. —Gabrielle Benele
