07: The Towers

We take a look at the Towers of Tamriel. They exist in both a physical and metaphysical way. The Adamantine Tower, the Red Mountain, the Throat of the World, the Crystal Tower, and all the others. Sure, they are actual towers that stretch into the skies, but they also have a secondary purpose which most of us may not be aware of.

  • Anonymous_Mononymous on the TESLore subreddit points out that, according to Michael Kirkbride’s work “Lord Vivec’s Sword-Meeting with Cyrus the Restless”, the Orichalc Tower is in Yokuda. It was built by the mysterious Left-Handed Elves and was deactivated when Yokuda sank into the ocean.

  1. The Book of the Dragonborn in Skyrim has something that mentions the towers. It’s called the Prophecy of the Dragonborn.

    When misrule takes its place at the eight corners of the world
    When the Brass Tower walks and Time is reshaped
    When the thrice-blessed fail and the Red Tower trembles
    When the Dragonborn Ruler loses his throne, and the White Tower falls
    When the Snow Tower lies sundered, kingless, bleeding
    The World-Eater wakes, and the Wheel turns upon the Last Dragonborn.

  2. Ugh, this is amazing. Not to reiterate what I’m sure everybody that listens to this blog is thinking, but thank you Elder Scrolls for creating a world of lore that is so deep, with so many layers that anyone can enjoy its worlds on a multitude of levels.

    I myself am just learning about the meaning of Chim, and how it relates to Vivec’s 36 Lessons. Wow.
