The ancient home of the [[Skyrim:Nord|Nords]], Skyrim, teeters at the brink of destruction. With the death of High King [[Skyrim:Torygg|Torygg]], a [[Skyrim:Civil War|civil war]] breaks out, with brothers slaying brothers across the province's frozen tundras and rocky crags. Many, especially [[Lore:Nord|Nords]], wish to secede from [[Lore:Empire|the Empire]], which has been in decline since the Oblivion Crisis. Many loyalists, on the other hand, prefer the unity and security provided by the Empire.
The [[Lore:Elder Scrolls|Elder Scrolls]] foretell the return of [[Lore:Tamriel|Tamriel]]'s primeval darkness, the Dragons, and the coming of a mortal born with the soul of a dragon, the "[[Skyrim:Dovahkiin|Dovahkiin]]" or "Dragonborn"—one who will have the power to permanently defeat his greatest foe and end the dark reign of the consumer of worlds: [[Skyrim:Alduin|Alduin]].
Your journey will be beset with peril. Just as remnants of the kingdom’s shadow guardians, the [[Skyrim:Blades|Blades]], will offer their aid, crafty agents of the [[Skyrim:Thalmor|Thalmor]], seeking to advance their own cause, will impede your quest. Acquire knowledge and prove yourself Dragonborn, and the revered [[Skyrim:Greybeards|Greybeards]] will grant you an audience to learn of their ancient Draconic arts.
