Part 1: The Elder Updates I - Can you hear me, Uriel? It's me, Sterv

Can you hear me, Uriel? It's me, Sterv

The guards are coming.

They're talking attack? An attack on somebody?

That voice. Could it be...?


They need to come into my cell?

Of course I'm not going to run. There's, like, three of you. Not to mention the Emperor himself.

Uriel Septim himself knows me? Surely not.

Then the stars were right, and this is the day. Gods give me strength.

I'm sorry, what?

My Blades are leading me out of the city along a secret escape route. By chance, the entrance to that escape route leads through your cell.

Handy, that.

Onward to...not prison!

I can't help but feel like something's about to happen...


I'm just gonna stick right here.

And just like that, it's over. Odd, though...

Bound armor?

We've got a guard down, apparently.



The last guard goes through the door, and the sound of a lock sliding into place from the other side. What now?


Take that, you...rat!

Same to you!

Ugh.'s something. Hopefully I won't get desperate enough to eat this.

That HURT, though. I can't exactly go around punching rats all day.


And so, freed by the Emperor himself, I prepare to take the first steps in the second chapter of my life.

Into a godsdamned crawlspace.

A bit short, I know, but I have a very good reason. Be patient!
