Quotes from Tamriel

“Have you heard the one about the Telvanni chef?  Her idea of a hot meal was burning down the tower!”
– Guard at Kragenmoor, Stonefalls

“Sheesh, you forget one plate of Fishy Sticks in the oven, burn down one mushroom tower, you hear about it for years.  This is why I don’t cook.” – Zellfire

Quotes from Tamriel

“I’m a healer, not a miracle worker.”
-Aamela Rethandus: healer, Selfora

Dammit, Jim. 🙂

Quotes from Tamriel

“Bloody business, war.  There was a time when I loved my axe for its sharpness and my armor for its shine, but no more.  Today I love what they defend.  Don’t lose sight of what’s behind you in the hatred of what’s before you.”
-Lyris Titanborn

When I started this blog, I had no intention of ever posting personal comments, let alone political commentary, but it’s been a long week and I feel I must say something important.

To my international friends: many of us are deeply embarrassed by the election and do not support the bigotry and hatred represented by the campaign that won the electoral college.  We are fighting, and we will continue to fight – not only because we hate what we see coming, but also because we love: we love our Jewish grandmothers and our Hispanic neighbors and our gay nephews and our black professors and our Muslim in-laws.  We love each other, and this crazy, melting-pot experiment of a country, and we will fight to defend the ideals upon which it was founded.

Hatred is blind and destructive; love sees and defends.  I will defend.

Quotes from Tamriel

“We just have to have faith, my friends!  … and maybe a little wine.”
– Priest of Akatosh, Kvatch

Is how I feel about this damn election.

 

Quotes from Tamriel

“Why do the best opportunities always involve caves?”
– Fedar Githrano, Wrothgar

To be fair, Fedar, a lot of the best opportunities also involve crypts.  But remember this, always: “abandoned Daedric shrines” are never actually abandoned.  Not once, not ever in the history of Tamriel.  For the love of the Divines people, stop picking them as the site for your romantic rendezvous or smuggling deal, no good can come of it.

Quotes from Tamriel

“A pleasure to have you with us, friend.  I look forward to recovering the valuables from your corpse.”
-Magnifico Jalid, Undaunted

Fair enough!  I respect both your brutal honesty and your assumption of survival, Jalid.

Happy Friday, everyone.  Enjoy looting your corpses over the long holiday weekend. 🙂

Quotes from Tamriel

Zellfire: Are you insane?

“Sane? That’s in the North, isn’t it?  I don’t believe I’ve had the pleasure.”
-Caldwell

@Zells: I feel ya, Caldwell.  I keep meaning to make the trip myself, but things keep coming up, and — oh, look! A squirrel!

Quotes from Tamriel

“I fear Sheogorath may have gotten the best of us.”
-Shalidor

Really, Shally?  Really?

I don’t know how to break this to you, O Wise One, but I don’t think it’s merely arrogance that keeps driving you to make bets with the Daedric Prince of Crazy.

I think you’re nuts, is what I’m saying.  I think you’re his.  You like bets?  I’ll bet you this shiny staff that you’ve got a cheese shrine in your bedroom.  C’mon, you can tell me.

And for the record, there is no “us” here, my friend.  I saw this coming from the very beginning.  He only got the better of you.  Again.

Quotes from Tamriel

“I’m far too valuable to be lost if this insane and dangerous manipulation of reality doesn’t work… you should try it!”
-90% of Mage Guild quest-givers, paraphrased

Oh, Mage’s Guild, you are as constant as the sunrise.  Emperors will rise and fall, allies will come and go, but I can always count on you to be willing to sacrifice a stranger to test out a crazy-ass experiment that might end us all.  Never change, Mage’s Guild, you keep doin’ you.  (And we’ll keep cleaning up your messes.)

Quotes from Tamriel

“Another journal?  It’s amazing it’s still preserved!”
-Guildmaster Sees-All-Colors
