翻译:花溪流萤

萨瑟尔在天际省的历史中占据重要地位,尽管并非众所周知,但其作为诺德人的第一个主要定居点,位列天际省最早的城市之一,同样也是天际省人类最早的文明中心。此处还是一场可怕的血腥杀戮的发生地,当精灵们试图将诺德人逐出天际省的目的即将达成之际,伊斯格拉莫及其史诗般的500勇士从天而降,将精灵们赶出了天际省,巩固了诺德人的统治地位。

以上史诗人尽皆知,但这不是全部。血泪之夜到底发生了什么?萨瑟尔何时被夷为平地?精灵们为何挑起这场蓄谋已久,充斥着恶意的突袭,为何又招致诺德人如此激烈的反应?

维英嘉莫有关高精灵的论述指出神秘纪元的精灵伙同早期的矮人,为泰姆瑞尔带来空前的繁荣。他们展示出的力量甚至超越了那个时代。尽管并没有确凿证据阐释,但我相信这是真的,同时对照赫瑟夫·茨瑞尼斯 的早期著作,可以得出萨瑟尔那一夜的确发生了骇人听闻的大事件(观测到巨大能量显现?)。

血泪之夜的真实动机已经淹没于浩瀚历史之中,但我坚持认为这并不是一场单纯的局部战争,也与天际省的控制权无关。我认为这是在特殊大背景下发生的一场重大事件。

诺德人在建造城市时一定在地底深处发现了某些东西,他们对此并不感兴趣,想继续让它在地底沉睡,但是精灵很快获悉,对他们来讲这是梦寐以求的东西,他们对萨瑟尔的突袭,并不是为了将诺德人逐出天际,而是为了攫取能源。我相信伊斯格拉莫非常清楚萨瑟尔地下深埋之物的意义,所以召集属下阻止它落入精灵手中。当诺德人再次统一天际,此股深埋于地底的力量亦被封存。

时光荏苒,有关信息逐渐舍我们远去,但我希望时间本身可以显现真相的只言片语。我们应不遗余力的重寻萨瑟尔,去寻找曾经失落的传奇。

Night of Tears
by Dranor Seleth
An inquiry into the cause of the Night of Tears


Saarthal holds a prominent place in Skyrim history, even if most do not remember it by name. It is of course the site of one of the first major Nord settlements, one of the first cities of men in Skyrim, and the earliest known capital of their civilization. It was also the site of terrible bloodshed, when the elves attempted to drive the Nords out of Skyrim, to succeed only in incurring their wrath in the form of Ysgramor and his fabled Five Hundred Companions, who swept the elves from Skyrim and firmly established it as the home of the Nords.
All this is known, but little else. What happened on that Night of Tears, when Saarthal was razed to the ground? What provoked the elves to such a deliberate, vicious attack, and what prompted such a severe response from the Nords?
Vingalmo's Treatise on the Altmer Antecedent suggests that the elves of the Merethic Era, along with their counterparts the early Dwemer, possessed a degree of sophistication unparalleled inTamriel. They displayed power beyond what could be expected of the time. While a distinct explanation is not given for this, I believe that this work, compared with the early writings ofHeseph Chirirnis, suggest that something greater was at work on that night in Saarthal.
The true motives behind the Night of Tears have been obscured to us by the passage of time, but I believe this was not a simple war of territory, or of control of Skyrim. I believe that what happened was a significant event based around something very particular.
The Nords found something when they built their city, buried deep in the ground. They attempted to keep it buried, but the elves learned of it and coveted it for themselves. Thus they assaulted Saarthal, their goal not to drive the Nords out but to secure this power for themselves. I believe Ysgramor knew something of what the elves would find under Saarthal, and rallied together his people to keep the elves from gaining it. When Nords once again controlled Skyrim, this power was buried deep below the earth and sealed away.
Time has kept this knowledge from us, but it is my hope that Time will also reveal the truth of these words. Every effort will be made to relocate Saarthal, and find that which has been lost to us.
