天际行省的历史浩瀚无垠,甚至能回溯到远古人类与精灵的记载出现前。许多史料皆已遗失,殒于战火蹂躏与岁月流逝。然而,真相从未被忘记。在无记载处,传说和民间典故会给我们一条线索重返过去,拼出人们脑海里真实又模糊的记忆碎片。

几个世纪里,莫萨尔的人们低声诉说一位苍白女士的故事,她是一个徘徊在北部沼泽的幽灵,永远寻找着她失去的女儿。有人说她偷走许多迷途的孩子,有人说她杀死所有听见她抽泣的人。但那些故事的背后,也许刚好埋藏着真相,古老的文字就谈及神秘的“Aumriel”,伊斯格拉莫的后人与之战斗几十年,才最终将其封印。

河源地的人们传颂着法兰的传奇—“红鹰”,一个挥舞火焰之剑的先古君王,率领他的人民抵抗赛瑞迪尔的军队。虽然说法各异,但应该都基于同一个事实:皇后海斯特拉的帝国编年史提过,那个时代有一个叛军首领,让帝国以一个军的代价将其包围,才最终战死。

不过有些故事很难证实。其中流传于学者间的故事,最有名的一个,也许是大法师高德尔的“禁忌传说”。

在第一纪元早期,故事便开始流传,那时生活着一位大法师,名为高德尔。他智慧且公正,在哈拉德国王的法庭里和天际的领主间非常出名。许多人和精灵听从他的建议并得到他的帮助。

然而,他被谋杀了。有人说是他的一个儿子行凶,有人说是哈拉德国王因妒忌他的才能而下令。但高德尔的三个儿子乘夜色出逃,被由哈拉德带来的最出色的战士,与国王的私人战斗法师吉尔蒙德领主组成的一个连追杀着。

一场声势浩大的追捕行动开始了,从河源地荒野延伸到冰冷的北方。三兄弟中的一人据说死于弗尔根瑟遗迹,在孤寂城脚下。剩下的人也各自死在不同的地点。整个事件结束后,哈拉德国王下令,将所有关于这起谋杀案的记载全部销毁,而高德尔的名字与生平也被从历史中抹去。

到今天,只有非常少的相关记载流传下来,没有一个吟游诗人去吟诵这个故事。但真相也许依然留在一些古老的遗迹里,等待着重见天日的一天。因为,真相从未被忘记。

Lost Legends of Skyrim
by Talsgar the Elder, Archivist of Winterhold
A collection of less well-known folk tales from Skyrim's past


The history of Skyrim is vast, predating even the most ancient records of man and mer. Much has been lost, fallen to the ravages of war or the turning of the ages. But nothing is ever truly forgotten. Where no records exist, legends and folk tales offer us a key to the past, a way to piece together truths half-remembered in the minds of men.
For generations, the people of Morthal have told whispered tales of the Pale Lady, a ghostly woman who wanders the northern marshes, forever seeking her lost daughter. Some say she steals children who wander astray, others that her sobbing wail strikes dead all those who hear it. But behind these tales may lie a kernel of truth, for ancient records speak of 'Aumriel', a mysterious figure Ysgramor's heirs battled for decades, and finally sealed away.
Reachmen tell the story of Faolan 'Red-Eagle', an ancient king who rallied his people and drove back the armies of Cyrodiil with a flaming sword. Though accounts vary, they too seem to be based on an underlying truth: the imperial chronicles of Empress Hestra mention a rebel leader of that era who was eventually cornered and slain in battle, at the cost of a full legion of men.
But some tales prove far harder to analyze. Among scholars, perhaps the best known is the 'Forbidden Legend' of the Archmage Gauldur.
In the dawning days of the First Era, the story goes, there lived a powerful wizard by the name of Gauldur. Wise and just, he was well-known in the courts of King Harald and the jarls of Skyrim, and his aid and counsel were sought by man and mer alike.
And then he was murdered. Some say one of his sons killed him, others that King Harald, jealous of his power, gave the order. But Gauldur's three sons fled into the night, pursued by a company of Harald's best warriors and the Lord Geirmund, the king's personal battlemage.
A great chase ensued, from the wilds of the Reach to the glacial north. One brother is said to have perished in the ruins of Folgunthur, at the foot of Solitude. The others were run to ground soon thereafter. And once it was done, King Harald ordered every record of their murders destroyed, and Gauldur's name and deeds were struck from the rolls of history.
Even today, few sources remain, and no bard will tell the tale. But perhaps the truth yet remains in some ancient ruin, waiting to be unearthed. For nothing is ever truly forgotten.
