What's your favorite in-game book?

Post by Thunderforge » 21 Jun 2017, 05:43

Morrowind and the other Elder Scrolls games have a whole ton of books and other writings to read. What is your favorite?

My favorite in the series is An Accounting of the Scrolls, which is about a scholar learning a surprising fact about the Elder Scrolls. It's succinct, has a wonderful ending, and talks about a key, yet rarely referenced aspect of the mythos.

That book doesn't appear in Morrowind though, so if I had to pick one that appears in that game, I'd say "A worn and weathered note". One of my defining moments in Morrowind was traveling through a thunderstorm and finding an abandoned shack in the middle of nowhere, which contained nothing but this note. The whole situation was fascinating to me and a little creepy, and knowing that I'd never find out who wrote this note or why made the world seem so much bigger. Just like in real life, not every mystery will be answered.

Runner up is The Horror of Castle Xyr. Not only is it a fun play, but I'll always remember having to act it out in A Star is Born.

ABCs for Barbarians. Made me laugh out loud the first time I found it.

Honestly I haven't read most of the books, but I remember there being one about a play that I thought was awesome. Someday I plan to sit down and just read the in-game books, there's a lot of good stuff in there.
