While Sofie fired arrows on the guards atop the north wall Francois and the guards sneaked into the city through Honeyside. Francois and Arnor held the guards off as Lieli went to open the gates for the Stormcloaks. Mjoll saved Lieli's life then helped her open the gates. The Stormcloaks and the guards had a full on battle inside the city as they made their way to the Keep. During the confusion two thieves were sent to assassinate the lawful guards, they poisoned Francois and Lieli but Francois was able to get Ingrun to make an antidote for them. Maul went after Ingrun and clashed with Arnor and Francois, dying in the process. The thieves guild abandoned Maven and cut ties with her as the Stormcloaks imprisoned her and Saerlund. Tobias and the remaining guards left Riften during the commotion. After a few days of Martial law the guards were able to prove Harrald's innocence and he took over as Jarl, and so the Stormcloaks left Riften. The Thieves Guild has been working to ensure their survival and that Maven remains in jail while the guards try to find evidence in order to lock her up for good.

The guards were able to find the incriminating evidence to lock Maven up. Francois and Lieli went to find Maven's bank records to find the Dark Brotherhood's payment, along the way they were ambushed by Tobias and the Blackguards, his new mercenary group. The two guards were able to kill Tobias and his mercenaries and returned to Riften safely. The Thieves Guild decided to help the guards, behind the scenes, with the investigation and discovered that one of Maven's servants was used as the sacrifice for the Black Sacrament. A group of thieves travelled to the Black-Briar Lodge to confront Maven's Shadow about the location of the body. Sapphire, Kradien and Eyjne fought against Shadow and the other mercenaries and were able to get the location off him before killing him. They travelled to where Shadow said it would be and found the skeleton. After that they drew a map of the location and left it for the guards to find. Arnor and Abbard searched for the location where the ritual was performed, they had already searched Maven's Manor, her Lodge and her Meadery but had forgotten to search her warehouse. They headed to the Docks and searched it. Abbard found a secret trapdoor that led to a secret basement under the warehouse. There they discovered where the Black Sacrament was conducted. After gathering all the evidence they brought Maven to her trial. Anuriel, the Jarl's steward was secretly working for Maven and together they were undermining almost all the evidence gathered. However Saerlund had witnessed the two talking and he testified that Anuriel was corrupt. After the revelation the trial continued and Jarl Harrald sentenced Maven to live the rest of her days in prison.

Saerlund was found innocent of the conspiracy and was released, he took Anuriel's place as the Jarl steward. Anuriel was imprisoned. Maven then reached out to Francois and told him the Thieves Guild's secrets, including their location, in a deal to move her to Sibbi's cell. Francois then mobilized the guards and they set out to raid the guild. They easily made their way to the Flagon and fought against the thieves. Dirge, Delvin and Etienne were killing during the fight and Vex, Tonilia, Vekel, Thrynn and Garthar were captured. The guards then made their way to the Cistern. The thieves knew that the secret exit through the cemetery was compromised, but they remembered another exit...Mercer's secret tunnel in the Vault. Karliah led the thieves out while Brynjolf and two others ran interference on the guards. During their fight with the guards Brynjolf used his Nightingale power to make Mjoll and Lieli start fighting. Just before Mjoll killed Lieli Francois shot an Icy Spear through Brynjolf's chest, killing him and breaking the spell. Karliah was able to get a good number of thieves out of the Cistern and to Mercer's old house. They then split up and left Riften.

Three months have passed and the Thieves Guilds of Cyrodiil and Morrowind were both raided, effectively destroying those guilds. More members of the Skyrim Thieves Guild were captured and the High King officially proclaimed the guild destroyed. However a small group of thieves were able to stay in hiding and alluded the guards. Karliah has come out of hiding to gather them up for a heist that will bring the Thieves Guild back to its roots.

Pre-Plight of the Reachmen(4E 219-223)

Maven Black-Briar dies in prison. The Black-Briar family is now lead by Hemming, Maven's son. Without strong leadership, like Maven's, the family begins to lose power and status in Riften.

In the shadows, the Blackheart Privateers slowly begin returning to their operations in the Iliac Bay, and used proxies via bandits and pirates to remain well-supplied.

Events of Plight of the Reachmen(4E 223-224)

Ever since the death of Madanach, the King in Rags, the Forsworn have gone into hiding to avoid getting wiped out. They were without leadership and as a result they were no match for the Stormcloaks once they had defeated the Legion and reunified Skyrim. Most people thought the Forsworn were no more, gone forever from the face of Nirn. However, 22 years have passed since the death of their King. The Forsworn have breed a new generation of angry Reachmen that want their land back and they have started to once again cause terror in the Reach. For now they have only attacked caravans and bands of travelers, leaving no survivors. Most people in Markarth think it is just a group of bandits that it attacking people in the Reach, however some people know better. They know the storm that is looming on the horizon.

Relations between the Reachmen living in peace with the Nords haven't gotten better in the past 22 years. They are still treated as second-class citizens and most are living in poverty. The Silver-Blood clan as ruled the Reach since Thongvor became Jarl in 4E 202. Many people resent the Silver-Blood because they would do anything for money, and they have a history with forcing people to sell land to them. However the Jarl is a usually a part of family business and leaves most of that to his cousins in Granite Hall. He is more worried about his hold than his family's business, as he knew it was only a matter of time until the Forsworn resurfaced. He was one of the few that knew the attacks were by bandits. He feared what was to come.

Garbhan and the Forsworn continued to terrorize the Reach, they captured two mines from the Silver-Blood family and attack almost all the caravans that head to Markarth. The Chieftain of the Forsworn has tried to unite the Reachmen clans that left the Forsworn after his uncle, Madanach, was killed. he was able to get one after he left the Reach and attacked a giant's camp. There he killed the giants and reanimated them as his thralls, with the help of the Hagravens in his faction. At the camp he also came into contact with Naerion Nelthar, who offered him an alliance, which Garbhan refused, and then attacked the Forsworn. Naerion then attacked one of their camps and after that went on an expedition into a dwemer ruin where he and the Nelthars that serve him found a control crown for that ruin's dwemer automatons. Naerion sent his subordinates to various factions to try to form an alliance with them, as he needed more troops to besiege Markarth. The Stormcloaks garrison of the Reach, under the command of Cristus Winter-Axe, started fighting back against the Forsworn threat. They attacked Serpent's Leap Redoubt and were able to capture plenty of Forsworn, which they took to Cidna Mine for interrogation. So far they haven't found out anything important. Garbhan, to gain more power, underwent a procedure to turn himself into a Briar-Heart. Now no one could call him weak due to his age. He also had his right hand man set up a heist to steal the Red Eagle's sword from the Dragonborn in Windstad.

Garbhan's right hand man set up the heist to steal the Red Eagle's sword from Windstad, the thief was successful but when he turned the sword in to Garbhan the Briar King, as he was now calling himself, attacked him. The thief left for dead, but was saved by Eignach against his king's wishes. An assassin was sent to kill the Briar King, but he failed. Garbhan traded assassin's life for information on his client. Now knowing him betrayed him Garbhan killed the traitor's son and pretended that he was the assassin, calling all the clan leaders to a meeting. He then showed the true identity of the body to them and had the assassin kill the traitor. The Stormcloaks learned the identity of the leader of the Forsworn, after interrogating the captured Reachmen. Naerion was able to get vampires from the Reach and mercenaries from the Rift to aid him in his scheme. With an army made up of Nelthars, vampires, mercenaries and Dwemer animunculi Naerion marched on Markarth and took the city. There his forces slaughtered most of the guards, only a few having escaped and hidden themselves in the Warrens. He put Jarl Thongvor in Cidhna Mine and began fortifying the city. Word of the city's capture soon reached the Stormcloaks, who readied their forces to march and take it back. In the meantime the Forsworn attacked Amber Guard and burned it to the ground, killing all the inhabitants. This caused Eignach to start questioning his decision of joining the Forsworn. He began to conspire with Tahara and her shaman Ulen. However Garbhan picked up on this and thought of a way to keep Eignach loyal. The Forsworn attacked and took Karthwasten, capturing non-Reachmen from the city. Including Eignach's wife, Anja. This guaranteed Eignach's loyalty. The Stormcloaks, after having bolsters their ranks with the garrisons of Haafingar and Hjaalmarch, and having the Dragonborn's son and the Dawnguard join them, set off to reclaim Markarth. They fought tooth and nail with Naerion's forces and suffered heavy casualties, but in the end won the battle. Only after managing to bribe the mercenaries with freedom from the law and getting them to leave the battle. With Markarth back in the hands of Skyrim Naerion headed off, only to be imprisoned by Nelthro. The Jarl was set free and the Stormcloaks garrisoned the city to protect it, since it no longer had any guards.

The Stormcloaks took over as the guards of Markarth, Lieli Beaufort became Jarl Thongvor's temporary housecarl as his previous one had been killed by Naerion's forces. The garrisons from Haafingar and Hjaalmarch returned to their respective holds, leaving only the garrison of the Reach left in the city. The Jarl and the Stormcloaks started to rebuild and bring order back to the capital of the hold. Elsewhere the Forsworn had captured Fort Sungard and were now gathering their forces to attack the already weakened Markarth. A Stormcloak messenger, which was sent to inform the garrison of the fort of the success of the battle for Markarth, was killed by the Forsworn and his message given to their King. With the information Garbha felt more confident and soon they marched on Markarth. They attacked with their full might, their warriors, shamans, archers, Briar-Hearts, Hagravens and Giant Thralls. The Stormcloaks put up a valiant defense but their were outnumbered and that caused them to slowly lose ground. Two giants remained out of the four and were able to destroy the gates. It was then that the Stormcloaks stormed the city and dealt a final blow to the soldiers defending it. The commanding officer of the Reach, Cristus, fell during the battle. Fox, an Ice-Veins, had his apprentice teleport out of the city before it fell and she was able to inform the wife of the Jarl of Hjaalmarch of the incident, who then sent word to the High King. The Forsworn broke into the Keep and confronted the Jarl, it was during this that Thongvor met Eignach, whom he recognized as his son. This caused the Briar King to turn of Eignach and soon a fight broke out. Only the Jarl, his son and two Stormcloaks, Lieli and Fox, were able to escape through the ruins and out of the city. Thongvor's brother and Lieli's brother died during the clash. The group then headed to Granite Hall where they met up with Thane Balfring Silver-Blood, the Jarl's cousin. They sought refuge there and thought of a plan to take back the Reach. Garbhan sent his new right hand to Rorikstead to hire Kastus to kill the escapees before they became a problem. He found them exiting Granite Hall as they had come up with a plan to get the Imperial Legion to aid them in fighting the Forsworn. The Briar King had also sent his forces to take the town so he could hold the whole Reach.

The lands unclaimed by the families were given to the Reachmen, while the rest were given back to the original owners.

Jarl Eignach and his wife, Tahara, had a child.

The King Perien La Rouche's and his ally's, Emeric Auld, plot was put to a halt when the King Edgar Stentor was named Regent of High Rock by the deceased High King and later received his wife's nomination. The King Julien Tyne sent some of his men into Farrun and Jehanna to act as bandits and cause unrest in the sourthern regions of those kingdoms. So far only the Duke of Raven Spring has sent men after the bandits. King Edgar found out that the High King was murdered, but did not know the poison that caused his heart to fail. So he sent one of his Knights back to Jehanna to fetch him his Magister. The vampire Morgan has been travelling through the western region of High Rock and secretly turning many citizens into vampires. The Crows sent a search party, consisting of Sir Lyon and two others, to find the hostile Orc stronghold that has been mounting raids against the kingdoms of Northpoint, Shornhelm and Camlorn the past month. Recently there was an incident with werewolves appearing in the capital. The guards fought them, but they got away after killing a few guards. Knight-Captain Albecius locked the area down and ordered the guards to investigate the situation.

It has been over a month since the funeral of High King Garth. Tension in High Rock are comming to a boiling point as King Edgar's investigation has led him to some major revalations. King Perien and Castallen Emeric's plot to overthrown the Regent, King Edgar, and stop him from learning about their involvement in Garth's death is underway. They have put doubts on the High Queen Dowager's mind about the Regent. King Julien Tyne waits for the right time to strike against his northern neighbours, while his Knight-Captain continues to cause trouble for them. The Duke of Raven Spring has been trying to stop the bandits pillaging his lands but so far has been unsuccessful. The vampire Morgan's ploy to turn citizens into vampires and cause trouble in the Kingdoms of Camlorn and Northpoint has worked and now the region is having to deal with the new vampire presence. The Crows learned of the hostile Orc Stronghold's plan to reclaim the lost lands of the Orcs in the region of Wrothgaria. They asked for assistance from the capital but so far have received none. The King of Camlorn has subcome to his illness and his son was crowned the new King of Camlorn. The King and Prince of Farrun attended the funeral and have been staying in the city for the past week.

All out war in High Rock seems inevitable, as the Kings of the East are outraged by the execution of King Edgar. The former Regent was captured by the High Queen Dowager, after her father and his accomplises framed Edgar for the murder of Garth Lariat. Weeks after being imprisoned he finally agreed to confess to the false accusation in order to save his daughter, whom he believed was in Queen Abelle's custody. When he was captured, his son Roberto started gathering the forces of Jehanna in order to save his father. However he was too late to save him. Now the new King of Jehanna, Rob, marches towards Shornhelm with his allies for vengeance. Fort Iceblade's soldiers join the King in his march. King Perien is made the new Regent of High Rock, he and his family then move back to Daggerfall. He leaves Emeric Auld in charge of Shornhelm and makes Daggerfall the new capital of High Rock. King Julien readies his forces to strike on his neighbours, now that they are rebels fighting against the crown. The Crows marched to Gar Aglakh and are going to besiege the Orc Stronghold to end the raids against High Rock. Jovron is put in charge of half of the Crow's forces, angering many of the veteran Knights. King Elyas has been sending emissaries to the various Kingdoms in order to get an ally to fight against King Damian of Northpoint. Princess Arielle Stentor joins the Dark Brotherhood and begins training as an assassin.

King Roberto's army reaches Fort Storig and is able to convince Knight-Commander Doraleous Toreau, the younger brother of King Tormund Toreau, to join their Rebel Army. When they were camping outside Fort Storig a message arrived that informed Roberto that his uncle had gone to Fort Dorell and gone missing. Roberto leads his army to the Fort and after learning that they are hostile they prepare to attack. Dowager Queen Abelle gives birth to a stillborn boy and falls into a depression. With the last of the Lariats dead, King Perien claims the throne of High Rock and eventually crowns himself High King of High Rock. After the news of the baby's death reaches Emeric he claims the throne of Shornhelm and is crowned King of Shornhelm. King Julien marches north to Farrun and attacks Dunkarn Haven and captures the village, beginning his war with Farrun and Jehanna. The Crows are defeated during the siege of Gar Aglakh, losing almost have their force. Around 20 Crows are captured by the Orcs and the other 50 are led by Knight-Commander Gerrick to the castle of the Moth King. Jovron escapes with Medora and she heals his wounds in a cave. Camlorn's ambassadors finish their journey around High Rock to see if any of the Kings would join King Elyas' cause against King Damian of Northpoint. Arielle trains with the Dark Brotherhood and is then sent to Ykalon on her final test, to kill the Castallen of the village using the skills she learned.

When they arrived at Fort Dorell, the rebel army was met with hostility. They built ladders and a battering ram to help them besiege the fort while other soldiers enacted a plan to try to trick the defending garrison. Their plan failed thanks to the spy, Sylch, that has infiltrated the rebels. Nevertheless, the rebels defeated the local garrison and took the fort, freeing King Rob's uncle. They traveled farther into Northpoint and were met with another obstacle, an Adamantine Order camp in their path. High King Perien starts trying to secure his reign by making marriage alliances with other Kings, reaching out to King Elyas of Camlorn and King Marcel of Wayrest. He is in the middle of the negotiations. King Emeric continues focusing on defending the city of Shornhelm. King Julien marches his army east towards Karthgran Vale and prepares to attack the village. He left Lord Roderic Ashfield in charge of Dunkarn Haven. At the castle of the Moth King, a group of ex-criminal Crows mutiny and kill Knight-Commander Gerrick. Afterwards the Crows head back to the Black Fortress to regroup and decide their next course of action. Jovron and Medora return to the Fortress and rejoin their comrades. King Elyas is with part of his courtiers in Daggerfall discussing the proposed betrothal between himself and Abelle La Rouche. After killing the Castallen of Ykalon, Arielle completed her first assignment for the Dark Brotherhood.

King Rob and his rebels defeated the Adamantine Order camp and then headed to the nearby village of Thorkhan Park to rest. The young king had to make a deal with Lord Ancois in order to be welcome into the village. Once they were fully rested, the rebels journeyed to Northpoint, where King Rob and his advisors went to form an alliance with King Damian. High King Perien was able to make both betrothals that he wanted, but neither marriage had happened yet. Having travelled to Daggerfall to deal with Perien, Elyas was now preparing to return home with his new fiancé. King Emeric readied his forces for the inevitable battle with the rebels once they finally cross into Shornhelm. King Julien took Karthgran Vale and after leaving Lady Colette in charge of the village and taking the Lord's son hostage, he headed to Fort Iceblade to deal with the rebel soldiers there. However, he was surprised to learn that the soldiers had already been defeated by loyalists. He made a deal with Knight-Commander Gaston to join forces and attack the rebel city of Jehanna. The Crows mourned their dead Commander and reached out for help, receiving assistance from Balfiera and Wayrest. With renewed hope the Crows try to reorganize their crippled order. Princess Arielle and Lady Shannon leave for their mission to kill a nobleman in the Kingdom of Wayrest.

The rebels made a stop at Old Gate, for Rob to reunite with his mother and uncle. While they were there Duke Horstle, Rob's grandfather, passed away. His uncle Eduard became the new Duke and joined Old Gate's forces to the rebels. News of King Julien's capture of Jehanna reached them and they learned of Prince Relien's apparent death. With those news Rob decided to decree his bastard brother Jovron as his heir. The rebel army then headed south, where it was ambushed by an Adamantine Order army led by Knight-General Noleon. While the rebels won, Rob was greatly injured. The army stayed in Thorkan Park before splinting in two, one group staying in the village with the injured king while the rest left with King Tormund to Shornhelm. Prince Crendal La Rouche began leading the Daggerfall army to Shornhelm to reinforce them. The Imperial Legion asked the Emperor what they should do, after receiving Darius' reply they set off. King Elyas, pressured by his vassals, organized and began his wedding with Abelle La Rouche. Julien searched for Relien but could not find him. The southern king then received a letter from Lord Mandaloon so he sent Knight-Captain Matthias to deal with the Lord. Matthias attacked the Lord's village, but his forces were attacked by the vampires that were freed from the Draluc Family's prison. In the chaos, Mandaloon was defeated, but Evermore's forces were forced to retreat. Sir Matthias disappeared along with his most trusted knights. After receiving unexpected help from the Balfiera Battlemages, the Crows defeated the Orcs and saved their fortress. Following the battle, Jovron was voted the new Knight-Commander of the Order. Knights of the Roses soon arrived and joined up with the Crows. With the Battlemages and Knights at their side, the Crows set off to fight the Orcs once more. They arrived at Gar Aglakh and began enacting their plan to win the siege. Arielle left the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary to try to meet up with her brother in Northpoint.

In Thorkan Park, Rob had an affiar with a soldier named Jeanne Nathans. Princess Bellisa comfronted him and Rob promised to break off his relationship with the girl, however two days later Rob eloped with Jeanne. This broke the alliance between Roberto and Damian, which was formed from the young king's betrothal to Bellisa. Rob tried to fix his relationship with Damian. It seemed like he had succeeded, but Damian tricked him and allied with High King Perien and Duke Roland. In the wedding of Bellisa and Duke Eduard, Damian and his allies struck and caused the deaths of King Rob, Dowager Queen Callie, Lord Wilhelm, Lady Marthe, Sir Ormax and numerous other rebels. Prince Crendal La Rouche rendezvoused with the Imperial Legion in Meir Darguard and headed to Shornhelm to help it against the rebel force that was preparing to besiege it. After getting married to Abelle, Elyas gathered his army and travelled to Northpoint to bring King Damian to justice for the murder of his father. King Julien returned to Evermore and began raising a militia to reinforce his damanged army, and to deal with his marital problems. Knight-Commander Jovron and his allies defeated the Orcs of Gar Aglakh and finally put their raids on the surrounding kingdoms. The Balfiera Battlemages took the remaining Orcs with them towards Orsinium to make sure they would no longer bother High Rock. Arielle ran into Wolfida and he helped her reach Thorkan Park safely, however they got there after Damian had betrayed Rob. She saw her brother's corpse being paraded through the city. She is then moved into an alley by two mysterious people.

Following the events of the Red Wedding, Damian and the newly crowned King Roland allied with the High King, leaving only Farrun as a rebel kingdom. However King Tormund marched his army back home. Roland was given control of the Kingdom of Jehanna, but Julien wasn't going to give it up without a fight. He brought his militia into the kingdom and fought against Sir Gaston's host, defeating him and capturing the Knight. Prince Rallaume took Dunlain Falls from Evermore's control and Roland began solidifying his rule. Perien sent a fake-Arielle to marry Rallaume to help with this. Roland sent his son to gather men in Cloud Spring and attack the occupied lands in the south of the Kingdom. Due to Julien's defiance, Prince Crendal brought the Daggerfall army down upon Evermore to put down the rebel king. However, Queen Jannia heads to make a deal with the Prince. As part of their deal for the Red Wedding, Bellisa married High King Perien in Daggerfall. Now the High Queen of High Rock she began playing the game of thrones, while her brother schemed with the Vampress Lisbeth against Perien. Sir Cirges, having been captured during the Red Wedding, was tortured by Rallaume, but he eventually was freed and sent to the Order of the Crows. There he met with Jovron and told him of Rob's Will and Arielle's marriage with Rallaume. Jovron agreed to fight for his family and deserted the Crows along with Carrik and Cyrus. They were also joined by Cassander Auld. They travelled with the Adamantine Renegades for a time, whom had come to the Black Fortress seeking aid for the Commander, before splitting off and reaching Jehanna. There they planted the seeds of rebellion. Arielle, done with her training under Jakben, performed the Black Sacrament and made a contract on the persons she wanted to kill to avenge her family. She first killed Lord Ancois and freed her Uncle Eduard. Now she heads to Camlorn.

Events of A Song of Snow(4E 232-233)

Skyrim has enjoyed peace for the last few years. Ever since the last big war, the Stormcrown Rebellion ended over 17 years ago, the Province has been able to focus on rebuilding from its past conflicts and turning itself into a prosperous nation. There have been minor hick-ups following the Rebellion, the incident in Riften and the war with the Reachmen, but nothing that threatned the safety of the entire province. That, however, is about to change.

The Falmer whom had been taken in by the Dwemer in their time of need after their defeat at the hands of the Atmorans, were betrayed and turned into slaves for their elven cousins. These Betrayed were physically changed, turned blind by the Dwemer's alchemy and magic, to make them easier to control. They were stripped of their former culture, their entire identity as a species was lost to them. However, the Dwemer disappeared misteriously and left the Betrayed to their own devices. The former slaves became tribal creatures, with a strong hatred for the surface world. For the past few millenia, the Falmer have been living secluded in their underground caverns, their numbers growing and their new tribal society growing ever more violent towards those that dared to venture into their domain.

Only on few occasions did the Falmer ever leave their underground territory, due to their changed physiology as well as their divided tribal culture. Though Tamrielic scholars noted that it was only a matter to time before the Falmer gained some level of organization and put their aggression fully towards the surface world. Well, that time has come. A Falmer Chieftain has managed to unite most of the numerous tribes dotting the underground network under Skyrim into one. This new Falmer King has turned his people's sight on the surface, to purge it of inhabitants and reclaim the land that was said to once belong to them.

Skyrim suffered a terrible event that would become known as the Bloody Night. Numerous settlements with little protection were attacked simultaniously by the Falmer. Hundreds of people were killed, painting the snowy province of the north with blood. During the night Helarchen Creek's keep was attacked and the Thane and his family killed, but the Falmer were stopped by Rigvar Burned-Mane, Erich Fair-Wolf and Argaeus Sildor. Pagran Village nearly met a terrible fate too, if not for the intervention of Freyja Dragon-Heart, Altera and her mages.

Following the terrible event, the High Queen organized a party to investigate the cause of the sudden Falmer attack. Her Court Wizard, Edwin Tanet, is leading the party with Rigvar, Erich, Argaeus, Rodrik Winterhorn and two Redguards from Hammerfell. They head to Raldbathar, to try to get to Blackreach and discover the reason for the Falmer activity.

Meanwhile, the Blackhearts hunt down Cristus Lynielle and his guardian, Brynhildr. They stopped by Windhelm where they saw a prisoner by the name of Hulgarth Seven-Swords fight his way to freedom in the Pit and were impressed by his magic. They hired him on and also hired Elaine Theranys, whom had ran into the Blackhearts and Vigilants that were looking for the duo. With their new allies, the two headed off to Winterhold, only to be attacked along the way by Blackheart assassins. They fough them off and took refuge in Fort Kastav, where another attack took place. They defeated the 2nd group of attackers and left the fort, continuing to the College.

Court Wizard Edwin Tanet's party arrived at Raldbathar and began to traverse the Dwarven ruin, running into bandits, chaurus and dwarven animunculi as well as some traps. Now they are at the finish line of their trip, right at the lift to Blackreach, but a Dwarven Centurion blocks their path. They will either need to disable it or somehow manage to beat the monstrous machine.

Cristus Lynielle's party managed to reach Winterhold, where the young boy began his study of magic under the Khajiit wizard, Jo'Khar. The rest of the group waited by in the city, still keeping an eye over the boy while he studied. Jo'Khar also showed them an interesting stone table of ancient origins that was tied to an ancient spirit as old as Mundus. The knowledge of the spirit tempted Brynhildr.

During a night at the inn with Elaine Theranys, the boy was attacked by a large band of thugs. They managed to fight them off and defeat the criminals, whom were then thrown into the city jail. Jo'Khar decided to help the investigation of the incident along. That night at the inn also caused the escape of the Countess, the criminal that was being transported to Windhelm by a guard form Markarth. The guard, Brun, was now forced to ask for help from the local guards to catch her again.

The Raldbthar expedition managed to defeat the Centurion and headed down to Blackreach, finding out that nearly all the Falmer in the province had gathered there together, thousands of them. They hurried to Windhelm with the information but upon arrival learned that the High Queen had departed for Helgen. They used the ancient wayshrine in Windhelm to teleport, but ended up being sent to Winterhold instead, where danger awaited them.

The Blackhearts attacked Winterhold, sending in dozens of vampires and mercenaries to assault the town under the cover of a magical fog. The guards did their best to protect the city but it still caused the deaths of hundreds of people, including Jarl Korir and Captain Kraldar. The College was also a target for the vampires and despite the Mages' gallant defense, they still lost three masters in the fighting: Jo'Khar, Phinis and Sergius. After both Jo'Khar and Jarl Korir were defeated, the Blackhearts retreated, their mission complete.

Following the attack, Arch-Mage Drevis used his own Wayshrine to send the group to Riverwood so they could continue on their mission to find the High Queen, but upon arriving in Helgen they found it under assault by Falmer forces.

Cristus' group headed to Markarth after the Winterhold attack, having Arch-Mage Drevis teleport near Old Hroldan Inn. Brun managed to capture the Countess by himself after the vampire attack and departed Winterhold to bring her to Windhelm.

The group fought against the Falmer forces attacking Helgen and were able to help the Stormcloaks push them back into a retreat, defeating the Dwarven Centurion that was aiding the elven creatures. However, after the battle they discovered that the High Queen had been kidnapped by the Falmer and the group quickly gathered with 185 Stormcloaks, under the command of Stormblade Ralof of Riverwood and chased the creatures back to their lair in Blackreach.

They sneaked their way into the Blackreach fortress and freed the Queen, but were caught in a trap by the Falmer King. The King could control animunculi and used them to corner the group in the fortress. When it seemed like they would be overwhelmed they were suddenly rescued by a group of Snow Elf Paladins, who carved a path to safety for them. They met up with Ralof once more and the Stormcloaks stayed behind to cover their escape. Ralof and his men giving their lives to protect Ursine and the group.

Now in Helgen, the group and the elves discuss a quest for an ancient relic that could hold the fate of the Falmer in its hands.

Cristus' group arrived in Markarth, after being attacked by a group of Daedric seducers summoned by the Blackhearts. They fought them off and continued to the city. In Markarth, Cristus found a letter from his mother that revealed his true parentage, he was not the son of Fox. Confused and frustrated, the lad tries to find a way to vent his anger.

Brun reached Windhelm with the Countess and is trying to complete his mission.\

Upon hearing of the Snow Elves' mission, Rigvar and the two Redguards decided to join them on their quest to Atmora to get back the Star of Auriel. They travelled to Dawnstar, where they got passage from Rigvar's adoptive brother Alesan on his ship, the Brinehammer, and sailed to Roscrea to get more information on the whereabouts of the artifact.

On Roscrea they headed to a native tribe and fought their way past their guards, then infiltrated the village and interrogated their Shaman, learning about the location of the artifact from him. When they returned to the Roscrean port the town was attacked by the angry natives and the group aided the guards in the defense. Now with their destination set they headed to Atmora.

Along the way they encountered a deadly sea dragon and fought tooth and nail to bring it down, defeating it but costing the Snow Elf Engwe the use of his legs.

They landed on the ruined city of Jylkurfyk and began to follow the Snake-Eye River to reach the mountain refuge of the Dragon Priests, where the artifact laid in wait for them.

Events of Purity of Retribution(4E 233-234)

Ever since the many trials and tribulations set forth against him, Cristus Lynielle knew all too well that he was being hunted down by not only the mysterious Blackheart organization, but also many other special interest groups that wish to see him punished for simply what he is. Determined to defy his foes and destroy them all with extreme prejudice, the young Breton set out to the frontier region of Craglorn, a land of eastern Hammerfell and a virtual no-man's land. There, he began his training alongside his most trusted individuals, with them being very few, and everyone else being potential enemies that sought to destroy him, if not treat him with disdain or disgust. As he and his companions prepared for what was to come, it was uncertain of where their road would take them.

The journey of the boy continued to take a turn for the worst as the Blackhearts dogged his every move and continued to assault his allies from the shadows, with his companions seeking to mount their own counter-offensive to force the enemy back, with the outcome of their actions remaining to be seen.

The group's travels lead them to the province of Hammerfell, towards the region known as Craglorn. During their search for answers, Cristus and his group unknowingly participate in a deadly gauntlet at Dragonstar Arena, which was revealed to be a series of realms created by the Daedric Prince, Boethiah. Despite the surprise, Cristus and his group defeat the ancient Champion of Boethiah after fighting through the gauntlet, with them receiving a generous cache of powerful weapons each, if not also their freedom from the Daedric Prince that created the realm.

After being freed of the mysterious arena, thre group retreat to the mining town of Dragonstar, where they would later receive news of a mysterious ore deposit being discovered but also raided by a large force of mercenaries shortly after it's discovery. Cristus suspects the Blackhearts being the culprits, and so seek out the leader of the town to offer their assistance in dealing with the mercenary group.

  • Basil Goldeye, King of the Pirates, is executed on 9th of Sun's Height, 4E 240.

Events of Beneath the Black Flag(4E 241-)

Basil, better known as Goldeye, the infamous Pirate King has been executed. None of his accumulated treasure was recovered, not even the Emperor's Amulet. Basil had managed to hide it all from the Imperial Navy and he boldly declared at his execution that he had obtained everything the world had to offer and challenged everyone to try to find it and claim his wealth and infamy for themselves. These last words had the effect of sparking a continent wide surge of piracy. Everyone with the taste for adventure and gold set off to sea to hunt down the late Pirate King's treasure. The Decade of Pirates has begun!

Prince Marcus Septim has taken charge of the Imperial Navy and begun a crusade against piracy. He is making a move to close in on one of Pirate King Basil's four commanders, Captain Uzgakh of the Daggerhearts. For this he has gathered loyal men on a mission to hunt down the Orc pirate, Captain Shelakh, a former subordinate of Uzgakh. He planned a trap to lure Shelakh into an ambush out at sea, which was successful, but now he and his men must fight off the pirate and capture him.

Lhotun, the son of the dragon's orphan Alesan, has turned to a life of piracy. He has made his first steps into his career as a pirate, plundering a trade ship from the East Empire Trade Company and gathering together able-bodied men. He still has a long way to go to become the renowned pirate he wishes to be and has yet to turn his sights onto Basil's ultimate treasure.

Naerion Exul went to Stros M'Kai, where he and his crew managed to procure a large quantity of Jarrin Root from the local lord, Headman Zakhim, after killing his men. Jerod Wolfson was sent to capture Naerion by his superiors, but the exile has thus far eluded him. Naerion headed to the nearby island of N'Gasta to try to capture the ancient tower belonging to an infamous Sload, but the locals proved to be more trouble than he had expected. He began construction of the Dwemer Centurion Yagrenac to try to fight off the local soldiers. Jerod followed Naerion to the island. Despite initially helping the locals, he butted heads with them over who would take custody of the pirates, including the newly captured lieutenant Vander and his men.

The crew of the Maiala fought off the infamous Ebonarm Pirates, killing them and sinking them ship. They were later recruited by Prince Marcus to participate in his mission to hunt the Orc pirates. However, trouble brews among the privateers as the First Mate, Borghul Yarzok, is trying to turn the others against their captain, Jarnus Staggitus.

Roderon Aumcel, a former Imperial turned pirate, continues his career as a pirate in the Sea of Ghosts. He assaulted a Dunmer trade ship headed for Solstheim and managed to escape with some of their goods before House Redoran could pursue him. However, his actions in the sea of ghosts for the past few months seem to have gained him the attention of a dangerous rival, the Flame-Hair Pirates.

The Imperial Centurion Evalana Aumcel, Captain Roderon's sister, continues her job patrolling the Eltheric Ocean for pirates. She intercepted one of the Eniel Pirates' ships, the Deceit and managed to capture its crew. She turned them into Daggerfall so they could face justice at the hands of the Breton High King.

Prince Marcus and his men engaged Captain Shelakh and his new ally, the Orc pirate Brolok. King Cassander's ship was under heavy fire from the Orcs and it sustained major damage before it was boarded by Shelakh and his men. Thankfully, Cassander had a secret up his sleeve that allowed him to come out on top, his lycanthropy. Him and his knights fought off the Orcs while Marcus on the Katariah bombarded the Orcs. In the end, the battle was won and Shelakh was captured.

During the battle, the Malaia underwent a mutiny led by First Mate Borghul and the Old Stag was thrown overboard. The ship then slipped away while the Katariah was busy firing on the Fist, Brolok's ship. Borghul has set his sights on King Basil's treasure, but first he is heading to a pirate hideout north of Farrun for information.

The Imperials then headed to Betony to return Edgard Baelborne to his father, Lord Gaston, and interrogate Shelakh. While initially unsuccessful, they were able to crack the Orc with the help of Gaston's Magister, Gladroon Direnni. Now they knew the location of Uzgakh's hideout and the size of his crew.

Lhotun sold his stolen goods at a pirate cove, before heading off to Solstheim to retrieve a Dwarven Ballista in order to increase the firepower of the Brinehammer. They encountered a Telvanni reseach group and their bodyguards in the ruin and must now fight them in order to obtain their objective.

Naerion Exul tried to send an assassin to kill the leader of Fort Cyrus on the island of N'Gasta, in order to free his captured men. However, the plan backfired and the assassin was killed, with the captured pirates commiting suicide to avoid being interrogated. In response to this, Naerion ordered a full assault on Fort Cyrus to wipe out the Redguard garrison on the island.

Roderon was captured by the Flame-Hair Pirates and forced to join their crew, now answering to Commander Freydis. He spent the last of his gold to fix his ship following a short battle against Freydis' men before his capture so he set his sights on the village of Frostflow for plunder.

Evalana made a mistake when interfering in a sea battle and accidently fired on a Tulune ship that was pursuing two stolen trade ships. She went to Tulune and offered her help to Baron Astien to pay for her mistake. She joined Captain Manis of Tulune as they headed to Dourstone to track down the Corsairs that stole the trade ships.
