TES - Another Book of Daedra by Izz-noxfox TES - Another Book of Daedra by Izz-noxfox

It appears you don't have PDF support in this web browser. Download PDF

THIS BOOK IS AVAILABLE IN SKYRIM: EXTENDED BOOKS MOD

If you don't get what are the 16 Daedra princes exactly, read this book!

You probably already know the wondrous Book of Daedra describing the spheres of the Daedra princes and maybe you think this present book is a rip off. Not exactly I would say. This book is also about the Daedra princes and their spheres but the focus is more on the “why” than on the “who and what”.
[...]
To begin I will remind you first what Daedric planes are: Daedra princes themselves. There is no real difference between the prince and the realm, neither between the prince and any lesser Daedra. They are all a same energetic entity divided in different aspects, what we call the prince is the concept governing this energy. So when you conjure a Daedroth you’re actually inviting a little piece of Molag Bal on Tamriel.
[...]


So now you know what this book is about. You may want to download it to enjoy the drop cap icons :)
I wrote this book in the same dash in which I wrote the others, and I'm still writing. I've got quite some to submit but I want to draw some illustrations for some. I need to find time to play Skyrim but I can't stop writing! T_T

I like Sothis, he's a Dunmer and natural conjurer, he used to have some temper until he managed to conjure an unknown Daedra from Mephala... He's rather a nice elf. The picture below depicts him and his "daughter".

Thank you very much! (I wonder if I should start an endorsement poll to say "this many people would like to see my books ingame, can you hire me, Bethesda?" XD)

Also this book will soon be available in Skyrim among many other new books and features! Check TESmods for more information about the Skyrim Books mod and good tutorials :)

The official release isn't but here [link] you may be able to download the test version. The version runs smoothly, the books don't have their illustrations yet (there is some text description in spite) and they aren't placed in the world, which means you must access them through the console. It's quite easy actually, to get an item you just need to type Help "title of the book" 4 and you'll be given its refID. Then you just have to type player.additem refID 1 and you'll get the book.

If you want to know when official version is released don't hesitate to follow [link] it's our devblog and we'll soon make a first release. I just want to be sure I can pack illustrations properly in a bsa so people don't end up with missing pictures in books :D

oh, I've heard of it but never tried. Does it run smoothly? And did they redo the graphics or took the meshes and textures from Morrowind? (god, there weren't even normal maps back then! XD)

great to know it works! even if it's obvious that having to use the console is not practical at all.
We plan the official release for the end of the month :) I've also started to write spell tomes, for now I have Flames, Sparks and Frostbite. I need to keep on but this will take some more time for sure. I named the writer Percius Artorius, I wonder if some people will get the reference :D

and yup, I do many back-ups!^^

Great job on the layout, I honestly believed that I see a real book from Skyrim! I'm looking forward to seeing it printed very much!

That was a very worthwhile read. I was honestly fascinated by your concept that brings all Daedra "under one roof". Amazing idea. I appreciate not only the writing, but the (fictional) writer as well. Through the book, a lively character appears to me, an intelligent, but down-to-earth, argumentative Dunmer who is fascinated and emotionally invested in the matters of the Daedra.

Thank you so much for commenting, this goes straight to my heart! It's really cheering to have a comment from a reader with sensibility :)
And I'm really glad you like Sothis, I have another book written by him to finished, more about Vaermina and the meaning of dreams and nightmares (it will reveal a little more about the character as well as he talks about his own nightmares).

If you like this kind of book you might appreciate Wild but not savage elves which is a geologist's view upon Ayleid culture (there's a little more speculation in this one but it still matches the lore), or Children of Shame which is a Breton writer's attempt to discover the fate of crossbred children (in the 3rd Era when people of various races couldn't mix - matching Morrowind and Oblivion lore).

Above this there's the Book of Q'amsha which is actually an illustrated take on the monomyth written in a rather symbolic way. It's got some theories inside such as one saying it's Lorkhan that bound the Khajiit to the Lunar Lattice (I'm proud of this part...) and that it's Arkay who stole the men's lifespan to become a divine with the help of Mara... But it's obviously a book a little more obscure for those who don't know the Monomyth and also since it's written a bit like Mickael Kirkbride's books (Lessons of Vivec, Commentaries on the Mysterium Xarxes... among others).

Other theories about Dwemer technology and corprus are also developped in the diaries of Sakin, an Ashlander's smith with absolutely no sense of orientation that got stuck in a Dwemer ruin with his dream of smithing Daedric gear. A nice series with some illustrated books. More to come and passed the horror it gets funnier.


...uhm... I'm very sorry for spamming you ^^; Of course you don't have to read those books. I wish I could get some opinion from the community but well, even without it I still want to print them and send them to Bethesda. May they hire me someday^^

Thank you for your book recommendations! I will definitely find the time to read them, but I will save them until I know more about the Elder Scrolls lore. I'm kind of a newbie to it still. :D

I think Bethesda could definitely use a talent like you! I wish you the best of luck!

I have actually thought of something you could do...
How about teaming up with a modder who would convert and put your books into Skyrim with the help of a mod?
I'm sure you would gain the recognition and appreciation of book-lovers of the game series. Plus it would be kind of cool.

No problem! And if I may, if you want a better lore knowledge I recommand you the UESP.net, it's an excellent website on which you can find all the possible information on the games and the lore, it also contains all the versions of all the books found ingame. I recommand reading The Monomyth (to understand religions) and the Annotated Anuad (for religion as well), The Pocket Guide to the Empire's 3rd edition (for geography and history) and the pages about the different races. This should already set nice bases to begin with and understand the rest better :)

Also I've been working with the Creation Kit and could add my books to the game. I've teamed up with other modders so we can help each other and we've made a blog: TESmods.blogspot.com on which we share tutorials, news about Skyrim, and the advancement of our mods. We plan to make a first release of Skyrim Books in the end of April^^

This is amazing - I wish you the best of luck for this project! :hug: I'll make absolutely sure to watch out for this mod, I LOVE books in Skyrim! And I've added your site to my bookmarks, I'll check back every once in a while. Thank you so much for the recommendations too.

Glad you're thrilled! So far I have 17 books finished and formated, and 4 spell tomes (Flames, Sparks, Frostbite and Fire Rune). If I make good use of this week-end I could get 5 more books, a nice series about a young Breton and an Imperial vampire trying to find a witch to cure the curse^^

Oh they are yours? You could probably fool someone that it's official ^^ At least me xP

Not hard. Just write the text in a book. Super easy with the TesConstruction set. ... If you mean the design of the books that's trickier since it requires more tools than TesCS, but not so hard either i guess =P

Thanks^^

I've read the Creation Kit should be released somewhere in January, I hold good hope that its interface will be more user friendly like Unity or the Unreal DevKit. If so then it should be quite easy indeed to implement new books with possible new textures for the cover.

Unity & UnreadDevKit ? Are those alternate, un-official construction sets for TES ? Like Oblivion, or only for Skyrim? Cool if so =P

no, they're game engines, they're used to create all sorts of game. like the UDK was used to create the game Unreal (hence the name), Gears of Wars and well, many others...
