An Ill-Smithed Destiny – By Galien on TESO-RP
"Spare a coin, Cap'n Jee! For a cup of wine, to fend the chill from my bones?"
D'jeme stared through the darkness at the small, crumpled figure pressed against the tavern's wall, seeking the eave's protection against the downpour. He remembered this one. This one was for real. An old rogue who had made it, improbably, through a bout of some lethal disease - Thrassian Plague or the Flu, D'jeme knew not which - but left most of his brawn and wits behind him in the bargain.
Casting Shadows: Chapter 4 – By BlytheAlarynn on TESOF
“Is it white?”
“Is it tall?”
“Is it the mountain?”
“Ayric, I‘m not playing around anymore.”
“You only said that because I've guessed right!”
“No, I said it because you’ve been guessing since midday, and now the sun’s being chased away by your annoying game.”
Ayric stopped and looked up for a moment, peering in between the trees that stood in his line of sight to stare at the sky. “I don’t think the sun can hear us. If it can, do you think it would want to play?” He asked quizzically, squinting at the remaining daylight. Raen expelled an agitated sigh and stomped extraneously hard on a weed that stood tall and stubborn on the path she was taking.
“I trust me and my associates will be compensated?”
The room was dark and had a foul smell in the air. Being in a den full of thugs made Ra’Sir extremely uncomfortable. The raggedy clothes he wore for a disguise only made it worse. “Your men will be paid very well for your services Qa’Dul, assuming of course that they can deliver.”
Qa’Dul was a most despicable character. Mercenaries were the lowest of the low in Ra’Sirs eyes, nothing more than hired swords. He needed them though. His patience had grown thin with his brother. The fool only worried about the people’s safety and other such nonsense. He never seemed to concern himself with the more important things in life: Money and power. “Usurping a Lord of Corinthe will be no small task” the mercenary began, “But for the right coin, my men would march on Oblivion itself.”
Suicide – By Triskele on TESOF
They had only halted around noon, avoiding the unforgiving heat of those searing hours in the relative shade of a lone, red rock. The Patriarch was a man of Hammerfell, as Sahar was its daughter, and the three men Tecca had chosen to come with them on this chase were Redguards as well. Even so, certain hours were not for travelling under an open sky. Not in these lands.

Question of the Week Answers
We’ve gathered up some of your answers to last week’s Developer Question of the Week. Watch the video to see the full question, and look for a new Developer Question of the Week this Thursday.
- "I'd find a previously unknown and inactive Dwemer construct while delving into one of their ruins. It would be an experimental, centipede-like creation inspired by the Chaurus and designed to maintain the steam pipes. In repair mode, it utilizes a laser from a single large soul gem fused in its head to weld piping. It would also spray a corrosive liquid to break up blockages and buildup in the pipes. It's heat resistant, but weak to electricity. I would train it go out and gather ore for me, and repair my armor when it needs it. I'm picturing it running around on my armor, scanning it for damage, then pausing in an attack-like arch to weld the broken segments." - Jason Hair
- "If I were to stumble across a baby mammoth, I think I might teach it how to pick up my loot or pack my heavies. In turn, I'd shower it with apple treats, praise, and protection. Perhaps one day, when it is grown, it might allow me to ride it!" - Sascha Maroon
- "My cliff racer hatchling will harry my enemies wherever they may flee to—across land, sea, or sky! The shrieking and flapping that is his birthright will sow fear and hatred in the hearts of my foes!" - Sam Derrick
- "Oh my god, a GUAR! I would love to have a baby guar companion. He wouldn't have to fight (unless he wanted to!), or be a mount or a pack animal. I guess I would train him to sniff out rare roots and herbs that would have been otherwise impossible to find for alchemy and cooking." - Cassandra Dunn
- "While traveling the jungles of Black Marsh, I find a baby wamasu that I name Sparkchomp. I’ll raise him to be my companion and to keep my spirits up while I'm traveling the lonely ash wastes of Morrowind or the frigid blizzard-harrowed mountains of Skyrim. I'll train him to fight, for example by training his ability to hit small targets with his lightning strikes, and take him to the jungles of Black Marsh and teach him how to hunt. Once he grows big enough, I'll use him as a mount and ride into battle in Cyrodiil on the back of an armored, lightning-spewing land-dragon. Beware the Sparkchomp!" - Asger Lakkenborg Christiansen
- "Since I am a Breton thief (and a damned good one at that mind you), I'd say a hawk. I'd name him Illusion because I'd train him to distract the marks with aerial stunts while I empty their pockets and purses and market stalls. This way nobody would get caught, so nobody would have to get hurt. I'm a humanitarian at heart, and will be the richest one across all of Tamriel before dawn. May Lady Luck always be on my side." - Ville Aho
- "A small scamp that would accompany me only in hopes of stealing something from me to get some Skooma. And if I die in-game, it would just roll on the ground holding its belly with one hand and pointing with the other at my corpse, laughing that twisted scamp laugh at my bad luck, just before starting to browse items from my character’s dead body, throwing them around and gibbering with language no one other than scamps understand." - Jarkko Ikonen
- "The creature I would find while exploring would be a baby cliff racer, and after teaching it to fly, its natural instincts would kick in as it wreaked havoc on new adventurers who set foot outside Seyda Neen. His name would be SKREEEEE!" - Sean Alkhatib
We hope you enjoyed all the fan creations and news in this week’s issue of The Tamriel Chronicle. We’ll be back next week with more!
