    Nords, trust your blood!
    Repost of an earlier post of mine on reddit:
    Nords, trust your blood!
    By Almgrim Blood-Shield, 4E201
    To all the able Nords still in their farms, hamlets, and cities: arise! Do not allow the southern heretics to rule over you for any second more, take up arms, and head to the nearest camp of the noble Stormcloaks, to fight for your people, your nation, and your heritage! Remember even in your darkest hour that you are not a weak deceiver, like the southrons and the elves, but a hardy Nord, born from the race of muscle and steel! Through your veins flows the icy cold blood of Ysgramor, of Wulfharth, and even of Talos, the true man-born Ninth Divine! Remember even in the dead of night and the chaos of battle that hundreds of generations back, our people conquered these lands from those who wronged us, and remember stoutly that we will now reconquer it from those who have betrayed us! Is this land not ours? Is the cold not as natural to us as the sea is to fish and the air is to birds? Is the snow not as warm as a well-lit hearth to a true Nord? Nords everywhere, trust your blood, and join the only just cause in existence: join the armies of Ulfric Stormcloak, and rid us of the disease which has infected our lands. Your race wills it!

    Count Reyner and the Daedra: A Children’s Tale
    Repost of an earlier post of mine on reddit:
    Count Reyner and the Daedra: A Children’s Tale
    By Charlon Verrier, Vigilant of Stendarr
    Evermore, 4E23
    So, little one, have you ever heard of the bad creatures that are called ''Daedra’’? I’m sure you have; after all, they bug us hardworking people so much, that not many do not know them! Apart from bugging, Daedra also lie a lot. They are like bad friends; they promise you very nice stuff, but they never end up giving you that stuff. Do you have friends like that? They are a bit like the Daedra. These bad creatures do not only promise stuff, but also other nice things. There once was a count called Reyner, who listened to what a Daedra said. The Daedra said that if Reyner helped him, he would in turn give him more land and power. Reyner was a dumb man, and wanted more power; he was angry at his neighbours because they would never cut the grass on their lands, and he wanted their lands to do that himself then. The Daedra wanted Reyner to do many bad things, and hurt many people. Reyner did so, and thought it was good of him to do so; after all, the Daedra would give him what he wanted as well. Do you think this was smart of Reyner? Then one day, the Daedra asked Reyner to summon him, and promised him that he would help him get power then. Reyner agreed, and listened to the Daedra. When he summoned the Daedra, the evil creature burned Reyner alive, and caught his soul forever. Reyner did not get any of what the Daedra promised him, and the Daedra then bugged the people of Reyner’s lands some more. So you see, little one, that the Daedra lie a lot, and you should not listen to their promises. Also, never summon them. It does not end well. Be a good child, and pray a lot to the real Divines; only they look out for you.

    I tried to use most of your criticisms, so I hope it's a bit better now. I've edited both volumes.
    About the lore: I think it's not that terrible to invent small towns, seeing how other in-game novels make up entire cities which aren't featured in the games in the end (such as Jallenheim in Reven's books); also, Whitestone would be so small that if it appeared in-game, it would only be one or two houses or so. 
    I'm going to introduce more actual events in the third book, so that'll arrive soon.

    I wrote this one for an assignment at school. We had to pick a painting which inspires us and write a poem about it. I chose to write one in alliterative verse, for Rembrandt's ''The Conspiracy of Claudius Civilis''. Here's the painting:

    And here's the poem I wrote:
    I also added a document to this post, which contains a rationale with some background information for the setting.

    Me and my forgetfulness and my worthless promises. I had a school project (we had to write an epic poem), so what I made is in the attachment. Please give me some feedback if you like or dislike it

    Thanks Kettlewitch! I think I will write another poem (maybe tomorrow evening ), and I think it will be about something we all know: jealousy. Again in Norse Mythology, because I just like it too much

    BlackEagle78's poetic ramblings.
    Today, I tried to write poetry. I think I did pretty well, and I ended up with a poem I'm pretty proud of.
    I wrote about the Irminsul, a legendary Saxon (pagan) holy site, which was supposedly destroyed by Charlemagne in his Saxon Wars. I put a lot of small references to Ãsatrú-mythology and actual history in it, which I have writtin in yellow next to the reference. 
    If you like it, please tell me, and I'll try to write some more (especially on Ãsatrú mythology, which I'm really interested in)
