2纪元的852年,诺德人和布莱顿人的联合军队越过了Cyrodiil王国的边境,在占领了几个要道后他们便在Jerall山脉一带安营扎寨.那时正值 冬季,他们很快地在Sancre Tor建造了战斗总部.诺德人和布莱顿人的联军并不惧怕Cuhlecain国王的新将军—-Talos,他们准备从众多的山地要塞中发动对敌人的攻势.

当联军们得知Talos将军在隆冬时节集合了一支军队并向Sancre Tor要塞的方向进发的消息后,每位士兵都显得兴高采烈.因为Sancre Tor是一座不可能被攻取的要塞,要塞的总部被建在了高耸的悬崖之上并俯视着山下的城市,整个要塞被高山盆地所拥抱,在它的背后就是那陡峭的,不可能被攀登的悬崖.

Cyrodiil王国的士兵数量很少,他们并没有接受过系统的军事训练而且他们身上的装备也严重不整,供给也严重短缺.可以说他们对冬季的战役是毫无准备.当这支战斗素质低下的部队在要塞所处的悬崖下集结时,联军中的每一位士兵都自信地认为敌人已经陷入了自军的圈套.

要塞所处的前崖和后崖都没有军队防守,因为他们相信这些悬崖不可能被攀登的;尽管这样那些入口处还是被魔法给隐蔽起来了:因为魔法的作用,在这些悬崖入口处呈现出就是一大片山地湖泊的景像,而且这些景像中湖泊的位置要低于悬崖的实际高度.因此联军只派了少量的军队把守要塞,而其余士兵则准备从那些山间的通道下山攻击并制服那些饥寒交迫的Cyrodilic王国军队.他们希望能击败,蹂躏,彻底地歼灭Talos将军手下的军队;他们要让所有反对他们的力量被彻底地清除,这样在接下来的春季中,他们就可以顺利地开向Cyrodiil王国的心脏地带了.

就这样,Talos将军成功地吸引了诺德人和布莱顿人的联军并使他们走向属于他们自己的厄运.

为了让防守的军队出击,Talos在山前的低地处留下了一支孱弱的军队牵制敌人,而他自己则来到了Sancre Tor要塞的背后.在那里他使那不可攀登的悬崖高度递减并成功地潜入了在魔法屏障掩盖下的悬崖入口.那一次非凡的壮举其实应该归功于一位匿名叛徒的帮助, 据说他是一位叛变的布莱顿人法师,他利用自己的法术显示了那些通往山顶要塞总部的隐蔽通道并破除了位于悬崖入口的魔法幻像.

正当山前低地处的Cyrodiil军队不顾一切地抵挡布莱顿-诺德人联军冲击的时候,Talos将军和他的手下已经成功地进入了要塞之中.在清扫了要塞中为数不多的防守军队后,他们俘获了那些在总部的诺德人和布莱顿人贵族并最终迫使他们向自己的军队投降.那些迷惘又沮丧的诺德人俘虏们以及来自High Rock地区的法师贵族们之前正计划着征服Cyrodiil王国心脏地带的行动,之后他们摒弃了联盟并发誓从此效忠Tiber Septim.Skyrim地区的将领们被加入了Talo的军队,他们的名字也被正式编入档案册中;而那些来自High Rock地区的战斗法师首脑则被处死了,那些布莱顿俘虏被关押起来并被卖作奴隶.

就这样,联合进攻Cyrodiil王国的行动就这样被阻挡了,Talos的军队则因强悍的诺德人勇士加入而变得庞大起来,这些诺德人士兵在之后Talos 参加的王位继承权争夺战中发挥了重要作用.在王位争夺战中Talos统一了Colovia地区和Niben地区并使它们成为了Cyrodiil帝国的中心,之后Talos将军便成为了皇帝Tiber Septim.

历史学家们对Tiber Septim那次在隆冬之际,面对数倍于自己的敌人而攻取山地要塞的大胆战术行动感到惊奇.后来Tiber Septim在Reman三世墓中的"王者之坠"中看到了自己神圣的幻像,他因此受到鼓舞并用他那坚定的手段解决了一个又一个看似不可抗拒的障碍.

年轻的Talos可能确实在找到那件古老而又神圣的契约的象征后了解到自己的宿命并因此受到鼓舞,从而带领Tamriel大陆进入了那高度文明的第三纪元.但不管怎么说,这丝毫不能减弱我们对他在那次"不可能胜利的战斗"中展现的旺盛的精力和军事天赋的敬佩之情.

Talos——————-也就是后来统一Tamriel大陆诸行省的帝国皇帝Tiber Septim.他结束了第二纪元并开创了第三纪元.

Colovia地区—————位于Cyrodiil行省心脏地带的西部高地区域,称作Colovia Highland.

Niben地区————位于Cyrodiil行省心脏地带的东部山谷地区,称作Niben Valley.

Colovia地区和Niben地区曾经是相互独立的.

Reman三世————第一纪元的最后一位Cyrodiil帝国皇帝,他与他的儿子同时遭到莫拉格帮(一个晨风地区的黑精灵暗杀组织)的刺杀.之后Cyrodiil帝国的蛇人大臣Versidue-Shaie宣布继承Reman的遗志成为皇帝并开始了第二纪元.他也是Tamriel大陆上的第一位 Akaviri族君王,后来他也同样遭到莫拉格帮的刺杀,之后他的儿子继承皇位.在经过了1个多世纪的统治后,Versidue-Shaie的儿子也没能逃过被暗杀的命运,只不过这次执行暗杀的是黑暗兄弟会(一个臭名昭著的黑精灵暗杀组织,是莫拉格帮的分支,但却与莫拉格帮处于敌对状态).

Battle of Sancre Tor
The story of how General Talos defeated the stronghold of Sancre Tor


In 2E852, allied Nord and Breton forces crossed the borders into Cyrodiil and occupied the major passes and settlements in the Jerall Mountains. Making their headquarters for the winter at Sancre Tor, the Nord-Breton allies dared King Cuhlecain's new general, Talos, to assault them in their mountain fastnesses.
When they learned that General Talos had mustered an army in the dead of winter and was marching to assault Sancre Tor, they were elated. Sancre Tor was impregnable, its citadel on high cliffs overlooking the lower city, nestled in a high mountain basin with steep, unscalable cliffs in their rear.
The Cyrodilic army was small, poorly trained and outfitted, short on rations, and unprepared for winter campaigning. As their ragged units assembled in the lowlands beneath the citadel, the Nord-Breton allies confidently assumed that their enemy had delivered himself into their trap.
The citadel was not only protected by an unscalable cliff in front and unscalable heights in their rear, but the entrance to the citadel was magically concealed under the appearance of a large mountain lake in the basin beneath the heights. Accordingly, the Nord-Breton allies left on a small force to defend the citadel, descending through lower passages to attack and overwhelm the cold, hungry Cyrodilic forces before them. They expected to defeat, overrun, and annihilate General Talos' army, leaving no one to oppose their springtime descent into the Cyrodilic Heartlands.
Thus did General Talos lure the Nord-Breton allies to their doom.
Leaving a weak force in the lowlands to draw out the defenders, General Talos approached the citadel of Sancre Tor from the rear, descending the supposedly unscalable heights behind the citadel, and sneaking into the supposedly magically concealed entrance to the inner citadel. This remarkable feat is attributed to the agency of a single unnamed traitor, by tradition a Breton turncoat sorcerer, who revealed both the existence of an obscure mountain trail down the heights behind the citadel and the secret of the citadel entrance concealed beneath its illusory lake surface.
While the Cyrodilic army in the lowlands fought a desperate defense against the Nord-Breton sortie, General Talos and his men entered the citadel, swept aside the sparse defense, captured the Nord-Breton nobles and generals, and compelled them to surrender the citadel and their armies. The confused and demoralized Nord captives, already suspicious of the scheming High Rock sorcerer aristocracy and their overreaching dreams of Heartlands conquests, deserted the alliance and swore loyalty to Tiber Septim. The Skyrim generals joined their rank and file in Tiber Septim's army; theHigh Rock battlemage command was summarily executed and the captive Bretons imprisoned or sold into slavery.
Thus was the concerted allied invasion of Cyrodiil foiled, and General Talos' army swelled by the hardened Nord veteran troops that played so crucial a role in General Talos' succeeding campaigns which consolidated the Colovian and Nibenean into the core of the Cyrodilic Empire, and which resulting in the crowning of General Talos as Emperor Tiber Septim.
Historians marvel at Tiber Septim's tactical daring in assaulting a fortified mountain citadel in the dead of winter against vastly superior numbers. Later Tiber Septim attributed his unwavering resolve against overwhelming obstacles to have been inspired by his divine vision of the Amulet of Kings in the Tomb of Reman III.
The young Talos may indeed have been inspired by his belief that he was fated to recover this ancient sacred symbol of the Covenant and to lead Tamriel to the high civilization of the Third Empire. Nonetheless, this should in no way reduce our admiration for the dash and genius of this defining military triumph against impossible odds.
