03: Numidium: the God in Brass

We’ve talked about the Numidium in every episode so far (all two of them!), so I figured it was high time to discuss the construct itself. Also, I think it’s one of the most interesting topics in Elder Scrolls lore.

There is a lot to cover here, however, because the story of the disappearance of the Dwemer includes discussions about the Dwemer, the Nords, and the Chimer (who would become the Dunmer). There is also a lot of potential spoilers in talking about this topic, but I did my best to skirt talking about anything that might give too much away.

  1. The tribunal temple was created by the tribunal (Vivec, Almalexia and Sotha Sil) after they had used the tools to draw power from the heart. Before becoming gods the tribunal was Nerevar’s “advisors”. I’m also pretty sure the happenings in TES: Morrowind disproves the Tribunal version of how Lord Nerevar died. Great job though! Keep making them!

      • Almalexia was BOTH Nerevar’s wife and advisor. Jon is correct, the Tribunal Temple didn’t exist until the apotheosis of the Tribunal. I jumped the gun a little bit in referring to them as such. Oops!

  2. Very slight nitpick with this episode. MK pronounces Vivec as “V’Vehk”. Almost insectlike. The first V syllable is barely there. The emphasis is on the VEHK. I can understand mispronouncing that word, though, as it’s quite unusual. Also, as others have said, you seem to favor one version of the story of Red Mountain. It might be less confusing to causal listeners if you made sure to note this was one author’s point of view, and there are conflicting ones. Overall very good episode though. One of my favorite epochs in the lore.

  3. Contact me with your email address and I can send you the entire episode. Alternatively, the iTunes version of the podcast should work fine.
