Elder Scrolls Lore 3: The Monomyth

The third part in my Elder Scrolls Lore series. I'm working with *************** to cover the rich and vast lore of the Elder Scrolls together. This post concerns the Monomyth, the collective creation story that can be found in every religion on Mundus.

You should touch on how Tiber Septim became the god Talos in one of these comps.

Nice summary

Some additional info for people who want to know:

Padomay is Sithis

Direnni tower is the first of many that hold the world together. Red Mountain, White Gold Tower, and the Throat of the world are others.
Each game has seen the deactivation of the tower and its "stone" (The thing used to keep the tower active and reality stable, ie the Heart of Lorkhan for Red Mountain or Amulet of Kings for White Gold)
The Altmer (purest descendants of Aldmer) want to destroy the towers so they can achieve apotheosis (godhood). The Thalmor in Skyrim want to destroy the Throat of the World because after Red Mountain fell in TES III and White Gold fell in IV, they were closer to their goal.

Plus a bunch of other **** about Lorkhan and Akatosh being the same person with split personalities that I'm too tired to explain.

Wait then the Elves were right! If all of the Divines are some higher beings who were born before the creation of Nirn, how can Talos be one of them? I mean he can be a saint or whatever, but not a god.

Of course Talos is a god, otherwise the main quest line in Oblivion would never have succeeded. To explain, a part of the ritual that would facilitate traveling to Mankar Camoran's Paradise required the 'Blood of the Divine.' Martin Septim proposed that the term may not be literal, but may instead mean an item directly associated with a god. With this in mind, the Hero of Kvatch is dispatched to Sancre Tor to retrieve the armor of Tiber Septim, i.e. Talos. With the armor, the ritual is able to be performed later in the story. So unless there was some misinterpretation, this should definitively prove that Talos is indeed Divine.

I'd like to point out that I had nothing to do with what happened to you! It was all the Aedra. We Daedra didn't even like Mundus until it was done.

again , it is unknown what kind of god lorkan was, for the elves a trickster, for the humans a savoir

Don't blame you for using the short hand "Herma Mora" When referring to Hermaeus Mora, but I'll admit I was confused. IIRC there is a link on UESP to get a font type for the Daedric language.

User avatar #20 - zahnrad (03/26/2014) [-]
I have an interesting idea for a comp on it.

Maybe since Nirn has multiple moons you could do a comp and find out a bit about each of them. I also noticed that in Part 2 there was what looked like a planet called planes of oblivion. Is Oblivion another world or one of their moons judging from the distance?

Nice compilation. If you want to delve deeper into Elder Scrolls lore and branch out a bit into the theoretical (well-grounded, but technically non-canon), the Nu-Mantia Intercept is a great read. Judging by your familiarity with The Monomyth, I'm guessing you've read this already, but here's a link nonetheless: www.imperial-library.info/content/nu-mantia-intercept
