莱曼灵书

第1章: 桑卡托与莱曼之降生

而在那时,塞瑞迪尔的帝国只在回忆中存在,实体却早已死去。历经战争、饥荒与恶人当道,塞瑞迪尔东西分裂,四百余年间科洛文实为异邦,而大地因此等裂解而痛楚。从安维尔到萨查,由佛克瑞斯至戴罗迪尔,曾经高贵之西方列王将光荣骄傲弃如敝履,背信弃义行事反似盗贼头领。腹地状况亦不乐观,诸巫士与徒有其名之圣蛾亲王皆沉溺于迷醉药品或亵渎研究中不能自拔,空留无人王位积攒尘埃数代之久。众蛇及对蛇的警告被置若罔闻,大地因遍布恶灵血流不止,而萧瑟海港亦为漩涡吞噬。就连Chim-el Adabal,荣耀之王者之坠,亦下落不明,但竟无人有心寻找。

正是于此黑暗年代,赫罗尔王自失落之特维尔境外之国动身出发,因其已于预象中见到众蛇前来助其尽数收复先祖失地。赫罗尔身边跟随一队同具雄心之骑士,其皆为西方好儿女,人数正是十八差一。最终有一灵魂在他们面前现身,而此灵只能是艾尔-爱丝提娅,旧日之女王,左手持阿卡托什之龙火,右手携盟誓之坠链,胸前一道撕裂虚空之伤口延展至其血肉模糊之双足。但见艾尔-爱丝提娅与王者之坠,赫罗尔及其骑士皆痛哭出声,跪倒在地,祈求世界恢复正轨。而圣灵对他们言道:我乃众人之医者,巨龙之母亲;但汝等多次逃开我,则我亦将逃开汝等,直至汝等体尝我所受之痛苦,而正是此痛苦令汝等并此大地死去。

随后圣灵逃开,他们只得在山丘林间分头搜寻,并为他们竟已成为如此邪恶之人而悲痛不已。最终只有赫罗尔与其贴身近卫找寻到圣灵,而后国王对圣灵说:我爱您,甜蜜的爱丽西亚,绍尔、奥瑞-艾尔并神圣公牛之娇妻;我愿此地重获生机,以盟誓龙火之重返取代痛苦,并将东西二国重整一体。而贴身近卫则目睹圣灵在国王面前现出裸体,并因见其结合而死。他在死前于临近岩石上刻下文字:而赫罗尔倾其爱于小丘之上。

当其余十五名骑士找到赫罗尔王,却只见其为一摊烂泥精尽而亡。他们就此四下逃散,甚至有人因此陷入疯狂。重回特维尔境外之国的两名骑士不愿提起赫罗尔半句,似乎深深以其为耻。

然而九个月后,那摊烂泥竟已成长为山丘,牧人与牛群为此窃窃私语。山丘第一次阵痛之时一小群信徒在其周围聚集,正是他们首次将其命名为金色山丘桑卡托。女牧人塞德-燕娜在听到婴儿啼哭后第一个爬上山坡,而在山顶她找到了山丘之子。她将婴儿命名为“莱曼”,其意为“人类之光”。

而这孩子的前额之上正是王者之坠,因昔日之龙火与诸神之信诺而熠熠生辉。当塞德-燕娜登上白金塔诸阶并将婴儿莱曼放上王座,无人胆敢阻拦。此婴儿言谈如同成人,他说:我乃塞瑞迪尔降临。

第2章:骑士列那,豚之刃

在中间期的混乱之中,王者之坠因沦入异教之列王内战而再度丢失。西部与东部重又陷入分裂,而塞瑞迪尔之外诸国皆视其为蛇人与众蛇之巢穴。莱曼之国碎裂四百余年,唯通过一群忠诚骑士的计策才使此国不致彻底四分五裂而为外国攻陷。

这些忠诚骑士彼时尚无名号,却因其东方刀剑与异域眼影而闻名。众人口耳相传他们乃是昔日莱曼护卫之后裔。其中一员名为骑士列那,相中库勒坎本领高强,并将其推向王位。长久之后人们才发现,列那此举只是为了接近塔洛斯,也就是暴风之冠,未来之光辉帝王泰伯·塞普丁。更久之后人们才获悉,他此举是受到一只猪的指引。

全体龙旗骑士均将长久荣耀视如妻子,除此之外别无所求。他们在渡海而来之前便亲如兄弟,如今也因苍隘刀锋降者的条规而互为手足。因拥有吸血鬼之血统,这些兄弟骑士均可活过数代有余,在莱曼一系之后继续守护其护卫,盘卷蛇王维斯度-沙耶。在黑标刺入萨维利恩·卓拉克将其暗杀之后,蛇队长沃舒化身列那,成为了西北地区的守卫者。

Remanada
Fragmented, mythical recounting of the conception of Reman and the return of the Chim-el Adabal - also known as the Amulet of Kings - with the people of Tamriel


Chapter 1: SANCRE TOR AND THE BIRTH OF REMAN
And in those days the empire of the Cyrodiils was dead, save in memory only, for through war and slug famine and iniquitous rulers, the west split from the east and Colovia's estrangement lasted some four hundreds of years. And the earth was sick with this sundering. Once-worthy western kings, of Anvil and Sarchal, of Falkreath and Delodiil, became through pride and habit as like thief-barons and forgot covenant. In the heartland things were no better, as arcanists and false moth-princes lay in drugged stupor or the studies of vileness and no one sat on the Throne in dusted generations. Snakes and the warnings of snakes went unheeded and the land bled with ghosts and deepset holes unto cold harbors. It is said that even the Chim-el Adabal, the amulet of the kings of glory, had been lost and its people saw no reason to find it.
And it was in this darkness that King Hrol set out from the lands beyond lost Twil with a sortie of questing knights numbered eighteen less one, all of them western sons and daughters. For Hrol had seen in his visions the snakes to come and sought to heal all the borders of his forebears. And to this host appeared at last a spirit who resembled none other than El-Estia, queen of ancient times, who bore in her left hand the dragonfire of the aka-tosh and in her right hand the jewels of the covenant and on her breast a wound that spilt void onto her mangled feet. And seeing El-Estia and Chim-el Adabal, Hrol and his knights wailed and set to their knees and prayed for all things to become as right. Unto them the spirit said, I am the healer of all men and the mother of dragons, but as you have run so many times from me so shall I run until you learn my pain, which renders you and all this land dead.
And the spirit fled from them, and they split among hills and forests to find her, all grieving that they had become a villainous people. Hrol and his shieldthane were the only ones to find her, and the king spoke to her, saying, I love you sweet Aless, sweet wife of Shor and of Auri-el and the Sacred Bull, and would render this land alive again, not through pain but through a return to the dragon-fires of covenant, to join east and west and throw off all ruin. And the shieldthane bore witness to the spirit opening naked to his king, carving on a nearby rock the words AND HROL DID LOVE UNTO A HILLOCK before dying in the sight of their union.
When the fifteen other knights found King Hrol, they saw him dead after his labors against a mound of mud. And they parted each in their way, and some went mad, and the two that returned to their homeland beyond Twil would say nothing of Hrol, and acted ashamed for him.
But after nine months that mound of mud became as a small mountain, and there were whispers among the shepherds and bulls. A small community of believers gathered around that growing hill during the days of its first churning, and they were the first to name it the Golden Hill, Sancre Tor. And it was the shepherdess Sed-Yenna who dared climb the hill when she heard his first cry, and at its peak she saw what it had yielded, an infant she named Reman, which is "Light of Man."
And in the child's forehead was the Chim-el Adabal, alive with the dragon-fires of yore and divine promise, and none dared obstruct Sed-Yenna when she climbed the steps of White-Gold Tower to place the babe Reman on his Throne, where he spoke as an adult, saying I AM CYRODIIL COME.

Chapter 2: THE CHEVALIER RENALD, BLADE OF THE PIG
And in the days of interregnum, the Chim-el Adabal was lost again amid the petty wars of gone-heathen kings. West and east knew no union then and all the lands outside of them saw Cyrodiil as a nest of snakemen and snakes. And for four more hundreds of years did the seat of Reman stay sundered, with only the machinations of a group of loyal knights keeping all its borders from throwing wide.
These loyal knights did go by no name then, but were known by their eastern swords and painted eyes, and it was whispered that they were descended from the bodyguard of old Reman. One of their number, called the Chevalier Renald, discovered the prowess of Cuhlecain and then supported him towards the throne. Only later would it be revealed that Renald did this thing to come closer toTalos, anon Stormcrown, the glorious yet-emperor Tiber Septim; only later still, that he was under instruction by a pig.
Long glory was wife to the all the knights of the dragon-banner, who knew no other and were brothers before beyond many seas and now were brothers under the law named the blade-surrender ofPale Pass. And having vampire blood these brother-knights lived for ages through and past Reman and then kept guard over his ward, the coiled king, Versidue-Shaie. The snake-captain Vershu became Renald became the protector of the northern west when the black dart was hooked into Savirien-Chorak.
