Notes for Lore articles


"Legend says Indoril Nerevar's family standard bore the moon and star, and Nerevar's armor and weapons bore this sign. Some say he bore a moon-and-star birthmark. Some say he has a magic ring marked with a moon-and-star. Others say he was born under a moon-and-star. In any case, I think the moon-and-star is the mark of the Nerevarine, and you do not have this mark. So you are not the Nerevarine." - Nibani Maesa, during Meet Sul-Matuul.

"Hmm. Is that all true? That is a very interesting ring. It is part of the story of Nerevar, the ring Moon-and-Star, that none may wear but Nerevar himself. You should talk to Ashkhan Kaushad. The ashkhan is very curious about this outlander who claims to be the Nerevarine." - Ashlanders in Zainab Camp.

"Ashlander culture honors dream visions and prophecy, unlike the Temple and the Western cults, which regard visions and prophecy as primitive superstition. Wise women interpret dreams and visions, and pass them on to succeeding generations. The most common version of the Nerevarine Prophecy is THE STRANGER. Did you know that Nerevar was known to possess a magical ring named ""One-Clan-Under-Moon-and-Star."" Nerevar swore his promise to honor ancient Ashlander traditions and land rights on this magical ring." - Sharn gra-Muzgob

"If you were not oath-kin, I'd say you were crazy. But I know the legend of the Moon-and-Star. None could wear it but Nerevar. And I'm a gods-fearing, faithful follower of the Temple. I don't know if what you say about the Tribunal is true, but it seems the Temple can no longer protect us from Dagoth Ur. Perhaps you are the one to lead us against the Sixth House. Tell the other councilors that you have my blessings. Miner Arobar hereby confirms %PCName as Hortator of House Redoran." - Miner Arobar

"The enchanted ring called Moon-and-Star -- or One-Clan-Under-Moon-and-Star, as the Ashlanders call it -- was forged for the hero Nerevar by one of the Dwemer Sorcerer-Priest Kagrenac's smiths, and blessed by the Daedra Lord Azura. The ring gave Nerevar supernatural powers of persuasion and indisputable proof of identity, since any other who tried to wear the ring would be killed instantly." - Telvanni - topic "Moon-and-Star"

"You wear the Moon-and-Star of Nerevar. The legend of Moon-and-Star is known to all loremasters. No man but Nerevar may wear that ring and live. This is a true sign. This is a miracle, a blessing of Azura, and no man may deny it." - Sul-Matuul

"You bear the Moon-and-Star, the ring of Nerevar. None may deny; you ARE Nerevar Reborn, the prophesied Incarnate. The Temple will know you as an enemy. Ordinators will mark you for death, and the Tribunal Faithful of the Great Houses will hate and fear you. The doubters of the Tribes will test your strength and doubt your honor. You will be known. You must prepare, and be ready." - Peakstar

"When the Ashlanders joined Nerevar in the Battle of Red Mountain, he swore on his great Ring, One-Clan-Under-Moon-and-Star, to honor the ways of the Spirits and rights of the Land. But after the victory, Ashlanders say the power-hungry Tribunal slew Nerevar in secret. Then, setting themselves up as gods, the Tribunal and the Great Houses forgot Nerevar's promises to the Tribes. Ashlanders say Nerevar will come again with his ring, cast down the false gods, and make good his promises to the Tribes. Like Lord Nerevar, you have won the Battle of Red Mountain. And you bear Nerevar's great Ring, One-Clan-Under-Moon-and-Star. Will you make good Lord Nerevar's promises to the Ashlander tribes? We live in interesting times, %PCName." - Huleeya

"The ring was called Moon-and-Star, and it helped Nerevar unite the various clans into the First Council. Later, however, disputes over religion divided the Council, with House Dwemer and House Dagoth on one side and all the other Houses on the other. Dumac and Dagoth invited Orc and Nord clans as allies, and held northwest Morrowind, while Nerevar mustered the other Houses and nomad tribes and marched to meet the Dwemer-Dagoth-Westerner forces." - Telvanni

"In ancient days, the Deep Elves and a great host of outlanders from the West came stealing the land of the Dunmer. In that time, Nerevar was the great khan and warleader of the House People, but he honored the Ancient Spirits and the Tribal law, and became as one of us. So, when Nerevar pledged upon his great Ring of the Ancestors, One-Clan-Under-Moon-and-Star, to honor the ways of the Spirits and rights of the Land, all the Tribes joined the House People fighting a great battle at Red Mountain." - Ashlanders

"Ages ago, Nerevar was the greatest Dunmer general, First Councilor, and companion of Vivec, Almalexia, and Sotha Sil, who, with the power of the great Ring of the Ancestors, One-Clan-Under-Moon-and-Star, united the Dunmer Houses to confront the evil Dwemer, the treacherous House Dagoth, and their Western allies at Red Mountain. By Providence, the faithless Dwemer were utterly destroyed, and their allies and the traitor Dagoth Ur were defeated." - bard, bookseller, savant


"For years, the Chimer and the Dwemer had been at war. The Dwemer spurned the Daedra that the Chimer worshipped, instead placing their faith in their metal creations. It was only when the Nords invaded Resdayn that the two nations were able to join as one, under the leadership of our Nerevar and the Dwarf-King Dumac. In time, the two generals became blood friends, and on the day that Nerevar and I were wed, Dumac presented us with twin blades, Hopesfire and Trueflame." - Almalexia

"The ring was called Moon-and-Star, and it helped Nerevar unite the various clans into the First Council. Later, however, disputes over religion divided the Council, with House Dwemer and House Dagoth on one side and all the other Houses on the other. Dumac and Dagoth invited Orc and Nord clans as allies, and held northwest Morrowind, while Nerevar mustered the other Houses and nomad tribes and marched to meet the Dwemer-Dagoth-Westerner forces." - Telvanni

"Dumac was a king among the Dwemer and a friend of the hero Nerevar before the war began. He served with Nerevar on the First Council and died with Nerevar at Red Mountain." - Telvanni

Alinor (city)[edit]

"They say Alinor on Summerset Isle is more beautiful. I've never been. For the present, I must count the Imperial City the most glorious in Tamriel." - rumor in Oblivion


"This is an explanation of how the Dwemer tried to make a new god, Anumidium, using Kagrenac's tools and the sacred tones on Lorkhan's Heart. It has several interesting theories about how to bend the Ehlnofey or ""Earth Bones,"" but I am not entirely sure I understand it myself. Perhaps after another century of study I could have a better answer for you." - Baladas Demnevanni

"Yes, with the help of ""Hanging Gardens"" I can read some of this book. It is the essence of Kagrenac's theories on how one might create a new god through the ""obedience"" of the Ehlnofey and using the sacred tones on the Heart of Lorkhan. Whatever its value to scholars, his theories did not appear to work quite as he intended." - Baladas Demnevanni


Haskill on Ciirta
"She is an interesting character indeed. She is one of the very few individuals in the Shivering Isles that is party to the secret of Sheogorath. She once made her way into the throne room during the Greymarch and saw that Sheogorath was nowhere to be found. However, she did not recognize this event for what it was. She believes that Sheogorath had abandoned the Realm out of fear of Jyggalag's attack. So while she is party to the secret, she does not know its significance. She believed Sheogorath to be a traitor to His people. She believed it so strongly that she led a revolt against Sheogorath when He returned. She was imprisoned in the Howling Halls for her trouble."

Haskill on the Great Torch
"Ah, the Great Torch. It is a symbol of Sheogorath's power and a source of great comfort for the citizens of New Sheoth. Unfortunately, the Torch has gone out. For eternity, this has heralded the start of the Greymarch. Neutral 50 "

"Many of our citizens are... delicate. They can't cope with the prospect, and they defect to the forces of Jyggalag, becoming Priests of Order."

"I could not abide Sheogorath's betrayal. He brought disharmony. He allowed the Greymarch to take us. I gathered those who could see the light and I led a revolt against him. We were... slaughtered by his Dark Seducers. I alone was spared. And in sparing me, Sheogorath made His final mistake. In this place, I will gather a new army and dethrone our coward god once and for all!"

"Individuality is an illusion. However, if you insist: I once served as the keeper of the great library of Jyggalag."
"Following each cycle of the Greymarch, Sheogorath has cast out or killed every aspect of Order found in the Shivering Isles. I alone have survived. Sheogorath cannot bring himself to destroy the knowledge that I possess. Instead, he has confined me to this place and forbidden me to die. I have not seen another creature until fate, predictably, sent you to me."

"Happens every time. The Greymarch starts, Order appears, and I become Jyggalag and wipe out My whole Realm."

For millennia this drama has unfolded, and each time, I have conquered this land, only to be transformed back into that gibbering fool, Sheogorath.
It was not always so. Once, I ruled this Realm, a world of perfect Order. My dominion expanded across the seas of Oblivion with each passing era.
The other Princes, fearful of my power, cursed me with Madness, doomed me to live as Sheogorath, a broken soul reigning in a broken land.
Once each era, I was allowed my true form, conquering this world anew. And each time I did, the curse was renewed, damning me to exist as Sheogorath.
Now, though, you have ended the cycle. You now hold the mantle of madness, and Jyggalag is free to roam the voids of Oblivion once more.
I will take my leave, and you will remain here, mortal. Mortal...? King? God? It seems uncertain.
This Realm is yours. Perhaps you will grow to your station. Fare thee well, Sheogorath, Prince of Madness.
