Arkay ,保佑着我的身体和灵魂!
我的名字是Alessia Ottus,我愿意告诉大家关于Cheydinhal的一切。

  旅人到Cheydinhal的第一印象是看到那广阔的绿色风景,沿着Carbolo畔有婀娜的垂柳,修剪整齐的花园和鲜花盛开的灌木丛,Cheydinhal看上去繁华,清洁,整齐的楼房,干净的石雕,玻璃、金属、木头上有引人注目的装饰图案。

  但是在这令人愉快的外表下隐藏着什么?犯罪! 丑闻! 腐败!

  Cheydinhal分为三个区。在北部,一座小山上,是Cheydinhal城堡的庭院和中心。在城堡下面的东门和西门中有一条东西纵横的路。Corbolo河大概由南向北穿过这条路,将Cheydinhal南部划分成两个区域,教堂在东部,市场在西部,所有的商店,旅馆和公会都位于市场区。在教堂区有教堂本身和Cheydinhal的民宅。桥梁分布在Corbolo河的南部和北部,南部的桥连接着美丽的河心小岛。

  虽然Cheydinhal位于在Nibenean东部,这里的文化是半个世纪前从Morrowind移居到这里的黑暗精灵移民塑造的。许多移民逃离Morrowind僵化的社会和邪教。在Cyrodiil他们希望找到刺激的商业气氛Zenithar的支持和鼓励下得到鼓舞。

  这些移民者中的一员是Cheydinhal的伯爵。Andel Indarys曾经是Morrowind的Hlaalu管家,但他来到Cheydinhal寻找更好的机遇。他突然崛起成为Cyrodilic贵族的最高行列让人难以解释,许多Cyrodiil的老家族都把他看作为一个狂妄的暴发户。然而,伯爵的夫人,Llathasa Indarys女士,被发现鼻青脸肿的死在城镇大厅楼梯下,消息立即被传开,愤怒和背信的暗示着一个她死亡背后暗藏的秘密。

  Cheydinhal的Arkay教堂出席者甚少,伯爵开了一个恶劣的例子,他从未踏足内教堂。但或许是他害怕糟天谴,他逃避Nine的视野!Cheydinhal的大主教,祭祀,医生,都是好人,坚持传授信仰,但最受人们尊敬的是教堂的牧师Errandil,Arkay的真神。不知疲倦的对法师公会和帝国作战学院实践通灵巫术的恶人嫉恶如仇。

  Cheydinhal的两个旅馆从外表上看都显得很上档次,但是新大陆旅馆是一个缺德的庸俗的黑暗精灵流氓开的,大桥旅馆是一个端庄,虔诚的帝国妇女开的,所以你应该明白哪一家能提供良好的服务和正规的食品,哪一家能提供安全,干净的床就算你未必会因你的钱包而被谋杀。Cheydinhal书店的经营者是Mach-Na,一个蜥蜴人,一个粗鲁、讨厌的生物,我从未见过。尽管如此,他这里的书籍都很好,而且价格合理。

  Cheydinhal最穷的房子都打理的干净明亮,市民们认为你走进去时候欣赏他们的家具和与他们打招呼的并无不便之处(当然你必须是在适当的时间去做这件事!)不过!给予警告!许多居民看上去都很文雅,但没有人会张开他们的嘴说自己是讨厌的,可怕的,粗鲁的,许多可能要杀掉你,把你埋进他们地下室的人对你说话都很礼貌。许多这些粗鲁,不愉快的兽人应该不会使你感到意外。

  不过,你一定不想错过Cheydinhal最著名的市民,著名的画家Rythe Lythandas。他经常在工作室努力的工作,不愿意被打扰,但他的妻子却热情好客,她可能会说服你给你展示那些挂在他家墙上的画。

遵循Nine的荣耀!

Guide to Cheydinhal
by Alessia Ottus
An overview of Cheydinhal's people and notable places
Arkay, bless my body and soul!
My name is Alessia Ottus, and I'd like to tell you all about Cheydinhal.
The first impression of the visitor to Cheydinhal is of broad green parklands, graceful willows along the banks of the Corbolo, neatly groomed gardens and flowering shrubs. Cheydinhal looks prosperous, with clean, well-trimmed houses and neat stonework, ornamented with striking designs in glass, metal, and wood.
But what lurks beneath this pleasing appearance? Crime! Scandal! Corruption!
Cheydinhal is divided into three districts. To the north, on a hill, is the courtyard and inner keep of Castle Cheydinhal. A road runs east-west below the castle from East Gate to West Gate. The Corbolo River runs roughly north-south from this road, dividing southern Cheydinhal into two districts, Chapel in the east, and Market in the west. In Market District lie all the shops, inns, and guildhalls. In Chapel District are the Chapel itself and Cheydinhal's residences. Bridges span the Corbolo in the north and south, with the south bridges connecting upon a pretty little island park in the middle of the river.
Though Cheydinhal lies in the Nibenean East, its culture is shaped by the Dark Elf immigrants who emigrated here in the past half century from Morrowind. Many of these immigrants were fleeing Morrowind's rigid society and heathen Temple theocracy. In Cyrodiil they hoped to find the stimulating commercial atmosphere inspired by Zenithar's patronage.
One of these immigrants is now Count Cheydinhal. Andel Indarys was of House Hlaalu in Morrowind, but he came to Cheydinhal searching for greater opportunity. His sudden rise into the highest ranks of Cyrodilic nobility is hard to explain, and most old families of Cyrodiil rightly regard him as a presumptuous upstart. However, the discovery of the Count's wife, Lady Llathasa Indarys, badly battered and dead at the foot of the County Hall stairs immediately attracted scandal, and rumors of the Count's dissipation, rages and infidelities suggest a darker mystery behind her death.
The Chapel of Arkay in Cheydinhal is poorly attended. The Count sets a poor example; he never sets foot inside the chapel. But perhaps it is from fear of divine judgement that he avoids placing himself under the eyes of the Nine! Cheydinhal's primate, priest, and healer are goodly people, and staunch professors of the faith, but the most honored and respected of the chapel's clerics is Errandil, the Living Saint of Arkay, a tireless crusader against the wicked practice of necromantic sorcery in the Mages Guild and the Imperial Battle College.
Both of Cheydinhal's inns appear respectable from the outside, but the Newlands Inn is owned by a wicked, profane Dark Elf ruffian, and the Cheydinhal Bridge Inn is owned by a dignified, devout Imperial matron, so I am sure you know which place will serve you good, reasonable food, and which will provide you with a safe, clean bed where you are unlikely to be murdered for your purse. The owner-proprietor of Cheydinhal's bookstore is Mach-Na, an Argonian, and a ruder, more disagreeable creature I have never met. Nonetheless, his [sic] selection of books is excellent, and his prices reasonable.
The poorest of Cheydinhal's residences are bright and clean, with well-groomed grounds, and the citizens think it no inconvenience when you step in to admire their furniture and appointments (provided you do this at a decent hour!). However, be warned! Many of these residents seem respectable to all appearances, but no sooner do they open their mouths than they reveal themselves to be evil brutes, shocking and rude, and more likely to murder you and bury you in their basements as to speak a civil word to you. That many of these rough, unpleasant people are Orcs should be no surprise to you.
However, you will not wish to miss the house of Cheydinhal's most notable citizen, the celebrated painter, Rythe Lythandas. He is often hard at work in his studio, and not to be disturbed, but his wife is gracious and hospitable, and may be persuaded to show you those of his paintings which hang on his own walls.
Follow the Nine to Glory!
