Olaf and the Dragon

We tackle the varying accounts of the story of how Olaf One-Eye rode the dragon Numinex back to Whiterun, imprisoning it deep within the keep (which would henceforth be known as Dragonsreach). Some say he was a great hero the likes of which will never be seen again, others say he was a treacherous liar. Decide for yourself after listening to our newest episode!

More Community Content in Our Latest Episode!

In our newest episode we have two different pieces of creative community lore-work. We begin our episode with a reading of The Withering, a short piece narrated by a rogue Hist in Elsweyr during the war between the Ehlnofey in the Merethic Era. It tells the story of the annihilation of the Hist during said conflict. Special thanks to Reddit user xenoposeidon for writing such a fantastic piece.

In the second part of this episode we listen to rottendeadite‘s reading of Dementor’s great goblin creation myth called This Many Goblins Left the Cave. I would strongly recommend checking out some of rottendeadite‘s other readings as well, specifically he has read all of the 36 Lessons of Vivec.
