多年以来,我在天际游历四方,撰写自己的冒险经历。

在旅行中,我见过许多令人惊叹的景点和奇形异状的生物,但有一件事深深烙在了我的记忆里,尽管我很想把它忘记。

我参与虎人贸易商队走遍天际,在大城市的门外贩卖他们的商品。

暴风袭来时我们正离风盔堡不远。这真是一阵猛烈又恐怖的飙风,我几十年来见过最可怕的景象之一。风声啸如湮灭领域里的迪德拉,刮起大雪令我们迷失在世界中。

里’萨阿德下令,停住脚步,让我们从道路上离开;我们用手掩住脸,阻挡冰粒的刺击。我们挤成一团,缩进松树林中的避难处。我们根本没法搭起帐篷 – 在我们打开帐篷那一刹那,狂风就从我们手里把它彻底撕碎了。

他们在风暴刮得最猛烈时袭来。似乎有六个这样的生物。很难说,毕竟大雪和狂风掩盖了我们的视线和听力。

他们大约和普通人一样高,却弯腰驼背、十分丑陋。服饰方面,他们只穿烂布和皮革制品。他们持有匕首和剑等武器,无疑是从他们原先杀的人手里弄到的。

值得一提的是他们没有鼻子,只有裂开的狭长鼻孔。他们的耳朵尖尖的,说明这种生物与远古精灵有联系,还有他们那惨白的皮肤和毫无生机的黑眼珠,这些东西就像从噩梦里出来的。

拜沙最先发现它们,但她自保为时已晚。她死时喊叫声很大,让我们在风声外听到了。她的喊叫声救了我们剩下全员。

为粉碎敌人的进攻,虎人提起利刃围成一圈,面朝外方。白色恶魔数量不足以包围我们,而虎人挡下了每次进攻。继而三个雪中恶魔倒下后,剩下几只就全部逃跑,没再回来。

风暴减弱了,我们在第二天清晨抵达风盔堡。我在熔烛旅馆的厅堂里住下了,我觉得自己多么舒服,因为能住到一座背后紧挨高耸石墙的城市里。

非常舒适,这种感觉一直持续到白色恶魔再现梦里,才消失。

Ghosts in the Storm
by Adonato Leotelli
Author's tale of his encounter with the Falmer


For many years now, I have traveled the length and breadth of Skyrim, writing of my experiences and my adventures.
I have seen many wondrous sights and many strange creatures in my travels, but one encounter remains fixed in my memory, though I wish it were not.
I had taken up traveling with one of the Khajiit trade caravans that crisscross Skyrim, peddling their wares outside the gates of the large cities.
We were nearing Windhelm when the storm struck. It was a violent and terrible gale, one of the very worst I have seen in all my long years. The winds howled like all the daedra of Oblivion, and the driving snow made us blind to the world.
Ri'saad called a halt and we staggered from the road, our hands held over our faces to ward off the stinging pellets of ice. We huddled together in the shelter of a copse of pines. There was no hope of raising our tents - the wind would tear them from our hands the moment we unpacked them.
They struck at the height of the storm. There were perhaps half a dozen of the creatures. It was difficult to say, as the blowing snow and howling wind overwhelmed our sight and our hearing.
They were roughly man-sized, but hunched over and ugly. For garments, they wore only rags and leathers. They were armed with daggers and swords or various kinds, no doubt scavenged from their previous victims.
They had no noses to speak of, only long slits for nostrils. Their ears were sharply pointed, suggesting a distant kinship with the elves. With their pallid skin and lifeless black eyes, they seemed like something out of a nightmare.
Bhisha saw them first, but too late to save herself. So loud was her death-cry, we heard it over the roaring winds. That cry saved us all.
Alerted to the presence of our foes, the Khajiit drew their blades and formed a circle, facing outward. The white fiends were too few to surround us completely, and the Khajiit fended off each attack. After three of the snow-devils had fallen, the rest fell back and did not come at us again.
The storm abated and we arrived in Windhelm the next morning. I have taken up residence in Candlehearth Hall and I find I am quite comfortable behind the towering stone walls of the city.
Comfortable, at least until I go to sleep and visions of those awful creatures return to haunt my dreams.
