Nimue's Journal - Introduction
information in this section certainly contains spoilers, but it isn't
necessarily a "walkthrough" in that it describes the experiences of one
particular character, Nimue, an Imperial Knight. In addition, people's
conversations and actions have been rewritten in many cases to make them
more interesting. There won't be any talk of stats or levels. If you're
looking for a good story, read on. If you're looking for help with a quest,
try the walkthrough section instead.
The picture to the left is Nimue, but certainly not as she was when she
started out! She is wearing mostly ebony armor, but her cuirass is the
Lord's mail that she took from a nasty individual in the caverns underneath
Ebonheart. I'll tell you about it later, I promise.
I'm still not quite sure what happened. I was imprisoned (unjustly I might
add) in the Imperial City. I realize that most people who are in prison
claim to be there unjustly, but in my case it's actually true. I was minding
my own business, not hurting anybody, when I was suddenly arrested. Nobody
would explain why. I never had a trial, I was just thrown into the Imperial
Before that, I was a Knight in the Emperor's service. I traveled far and
wide on at the Emperor's behest. I killed evil creatures, sought out
treasure and generally made myself useful to those in need whether it was
wiping out a nest of werewolves or accompanying a merchant on his trip to
make sure he wasn't beset by bandits. I never took anything that didn't
belong to me, unless it belonged to someone evil, and I never killed without
I lay in prison, alone and unremembered, until just as suddenly and with
just as little explanation, I was taken and put on a ship. The journey
didn't last long, although I couldn't tell you for sure how long. I spent
most of the trip in a fitful half-waking, half-sleeping state. I had several
horrible nightmares that I can't even remember. In one that tickles the edge
of my consciousness I was addressed by a voice that told me I had been
chosen, but not for what.
When I woke up this morning I realized that the ship had docked. The Dunmer
who shared my place in the hold, Jiub by name, tells me that
I have arrived in a place called Morrowind. I've seen maps of the Empire and
always thought Morrowind looked truly desolate and uninviting. Guess I'm
going to find out now. I being here is better than being in prison, but how
much better? In stark contrast to the guard who arrived take me on deck, Jiub, was quite kind and concerned.
So much for friendship among Imperials!
After a great deal of nosiness
I was given 87 gold pieces and a package of papers by a man named Sellus
Gravius. He said I should deliver the papers to a man named Caius Cosades in
Balmora. Snotty fellow that Sellus Gravious. He had the nerve to warn me
that if I tried to open the package and read the information I'd be
punished! While I understand that my background is less than spotless, I
never steal and I always uphold the law; even though the law hasn't always
returned the favor. Oh well... maybe I'll get around to delivering this package
after I've explored a bit and gotten my bearings. Clearly I am on an
adventure and it's about to begin.
