There are five versions of this book, all with the exact same name in-game, but containing different numbers of pages. The displayed information is for the most complete version of the book, MGRDestruction04. The other versions are:

  • MGRDestruction01 (0009C8C0) contains only the first page (through "the sea will boil")
  • MGRDestruction02 (0009C8C6) contains only the first two pages (through "gild this stand with frost")
  • MGRDestruction03 (0009C8C1) contains only the first three pages (through "shake these snowcaps down")
  • MGRDestructionFinal (000F37D0) acts as a Spell Tome for Fire Storm, and gets replaced with MGRDestruction04 when read


Northward, haunted
northern coastline

And south, Dwemer
live and toil,

A simple place,
a shield from draft.

At this stand
wield mage's craft

So fierce the sea will boil.


Under Greybeards'
morning shadow

At this northern
watch, long lost

Nirn's hoary Throat
does scrape the sky.

Here unleash a chilling cry
And gild this stand with frost.


Over western
river waters,

By Karth bounded,
south and north

On mountains sits
a humble crown.

Sky's wrath on this stand
bring forth

To shake these snowcaps down.


Elemental magic wielded,
Elemental thoughts displayed

Havoc wrought as if for sport,
Efforts to impress fall short.

I'll merely use a blade.

Seeking study, wanting learning,
Recklessly aroused my rage!

My pupil you would be, or more?


Presume not of Shalidor,
You feeble, foolish mage!

Quickly dispatched,
Worthless weakling,

Though this tome I gladly claim.

A diamond in the rough, I find,
Shining gem from feeble mind.

Now die, and curse my name!
