Sky Forge Skyrim Event: Lore of the Ancients


Welcome, all, to another Sky Forge Skyrim Building Event! The year is nearly at a close, and with the holidays looming, what better time to start planning a new character build?


So, on to the event. What is it?


Lore of the Ancients. An event centred around an ancient, obscure or faltering race, faction or religion of Tamriel. The possibilities for characters in this event is vast and will be quite open form in terms of how a character can be played. That means anything from the three main playstyles (Thief, Mage, Warrior) goes. 

Some examples for ideas could be:

  • An obsessive Aylied scholar
  • A Knight of the Nine
  • A Mythic Dawn Cultist
  • An Akaviri Dragonguard
  • A Dunmer who follows the Tribunal
  • A Worm Cultist
  • A Nord who follows the Totem gods

Below are a few resources for finding Lore and info for your build


~Fundamentals of the Event~

  • All builds that wish to be considered apart of the event must be submitted before the event's end date.
  • The build must have a clear link connecting it to the event's theme. Please specify your theme.
  • Mods are ok. But if you are using ones that overhaul the magic and the perk system, please use the common ones. Nothing too obscure, as the build should be easily replicable for the average player. ie Simon Magus or Enai Saion.
  • You can choose to work with a team of up to 3 individuals.
  • One entry per contestant/s
  • Videos and stories to complement your build are welcome.
  • Have Fun!!

  • I really like the subject of this event, it let a lot of creativity and freedom to the builders ! I have to make a build for this one !

  • Think I'm going to attempt an Ayleid scholar.

  • Yep sign me up my dude. No clue on what Im doing yet

  • If you're into modding, this is a fun mod that seamlessly adds races to Skyrim, such as Maormer, Tsaesci, dwarf, Ayleid, and Snow Elf. I'm leaning toward Dwarf or the Sea Elf myself. Or maybe the Snow Elf/Falmer!?!  Never published a build, but I'm going to throw my hat in the ring. 

    Lost Races of Aetherius

    Lost Races of Aetherius
    An extension of Simon Magus' Aetherius race overhaul that adds Ayleid, Dwemer, Maormer, Snow Elf, and Tsaesci playable races to the game.
  • Great stuff guys, I'll add you all to the event later today 👌

    • I can't wait to see this one.

  • While I'm new to the character-building scene, I have been roleplaying an orc indoctrinated by Nords into the archaic and grim Cult of Orkey. Sign me up!

    • Love this idea. 

  • Ah, I forgot to comment! Sign me up! I don't want all the effort I'm putting into my Nisswo-King to be wasted.

  • Let's see if I can finally finish my Bastion of the Seasons build for this event.
