萨瑟尔的陷落(译者注:标题与内容标题不符?)

作者:赫瑟夫·茨瑞尼斯

萨瑟尔之所以如此出名,是因为有位受人尊敬的考古学家,集中了人才去研究第一纪元早期诺德人的烹饪和烘烤习惯。虽然这项工作一定能为帝国带来巨大的荣誉与利益,但很明显,以我有限的专业知识,我无法取得这项成就。

我用自己相当多的空闲时间去研究一个特殊的课题,即萨瑟尔的陷落。 帝国里每一个小孩都知道这里发生了什么;人类在泰姆瑞尔的第一座城市遭精灵劫掠,因为精灵嫉妒人类的成就并害怕他威胁自己。尽管和那时比两者的关系已有明显的改善,但能从那时最直接的毁灭性结局中,能注意到精灵那令人震惊、敢冒风险的投入程度。

我目前的首要任务是,区分开原始建筑群的所在地,与伊斯格拉摩及五百勇士重夺城市后的建筑重建区。起初这项任务非常需依赖古学家弗罗容涅斯的专业知识,但后来我的辨识能力也在逐渐增长。事实上我惊喜的发现,城市里的许多地区,远超我想象的保留了大量原有的石雕工程。那些工程显然是在补救精灵袭击后被烧毁的城市,但我怀疑建造者低估了古诺德工艺的耐用性。

或者更确切地说,这就是我最开始认为的。也许是对早期人类成就错误的自豪感,或者也许只是我的经验不足让我下这个结论。虽然,这项发现仍带有疑问。但试着反复询问那位敏感的考古学家是得不到结果的,他的讲座总是会跑题到谈萨瑟尔居民的洗澡习惯,或在居民家庭里盆栽的数目。我就不得不继续依靠我有限的能力去观察推理。

所以我现在没有确凿的结果要报告。我可以肯定,最初精灵对萨瑟尔的进攻非常密集,却并没有出现有联系的、已建立的防御地点和重要地点。尽管著名学者森提乌斯尚未肯定我的发现,或确切的表现出对此的任何兴趣,但我倾向的建议是,不仅精灵明显的了解着城市的布局,且他们的攻击服从于一个特殊的命令,并可能是一个怪异的目标。

如时间许可,愚以为调查应该继续进行。

The Fall of Saarthal
by Heseph Chirirnis
A report from a Mages Guild Scholar assigned to Imperial Archaeologist Sentius Floronius


Let it be known that the esteemed archaeologist has chosen to focus his boundless talents on the cooking and baking habits of early First Era Nords. While this work will no doubt bring great glory and benefit to the Empire, it is clear that my limited expertise is of no use to this effort.
I have instead been using my considerable free time to investigate a particular avenue of study, namely that of the Fall of Saarthal. Every child of the Empire knows what happened here; that the first city of Man on Tamriel was sacked by the elves, jealous and fearful of the threat men posed to them. Relations have obviously improved considerably since then, but to be able to see the results of the destruction first-hand, it is quite striking to note the degree of effort that went into the venture.
The first task before me was differentiating between areas of original architecture and those that were rebuilt after Ysgramor retook the city with his five hundred companions. Initially relying heavily on the expertise of archaeologist Floronius, my ability to discern the difference for myself improved over time. Indeed, I was surprised to find that many areas of the city, far more than I would have believed, retained much of the original stonework. Work was clearly done to remedy the effects of the city being burned after the elves' assault, but I suspect they underestimated the durability of Nordic craftsmanship.
Or rather, that is what I initially thought. Perhaps it was a mistaken sense of pride in the accomplishments of these early men, or perhaps it was just my inexperience that led me to this conclusion. Something was amiss, though. Repeated attempts to consult the exceedingly perceptive archaeologist were unfruitful, often digressing into lectures on the bathing habits of Saarthal residents, or the average number of potted plants in homes. I was again forced to rely on my limited powers of observation and deduction.
And so I have no conclusive results to report at this time. I can say with certainty that the initial attack on Saarthal seems to have been very focused, and does not appear to correlate to any locations that have been established as points of defense or importance. While the eminent scholar Sentius has yet to examine my findings, or indeed show any interest in them, my inclination is to suggest that not only did the elves know the apparent layout of the city, but that their assault was based on a specific directive and perhaps a singular goal.
My humble investigations shall continue as time permits.
