Here's a tiny detail some might have missed. If you go east of Ivarstead to Snapleg Cave there is a coven of witches, hags and a hagraven keeping an spriggan in a cage. Release the spriggan and it will kill the hag and hagraven. Follow it out of the cave, it will lead you to Eldergleam Sanctuary and dying shortly before making it back to its home.
I didn't know that. I usally clear the way for the captured spriggan before realising it. Why would this creature die when it get home? That is odd but if that is what the game developers choosed to do then so be it. Personally I would prefer some form of gratitude making this one into a non hostile spriggan living in the sanctuary.

Aetherium Forge - "Am I a joke to you?"
@Im-Not-a-Dog Anos atrás
I believe that The Skyforge and the Selkie Statue are some of the last few remnants of the Wandering Elnofey's early religion. I believe the animals/cryptids depicted by the statues are the earliest totemic depictions of the Aedra, in specific, I think the Skyforge depicts a representation of Kyne while the Selkie is of Dibella. If this theory is correct, when the Wandering Elnofey became Men and moved to Atmora they would have brought the tradition of representing the gods as animal totems with them, which would them be brought back to Tamriel with several of the early Nede groups.
@theULTIMATElife50 Anos atrás
I theorize the Nordic Totems help depict the greater story of the conflict between Shor, the fox and moon, and Auri-el/Magnus, both symbolized with the eagle and sun. In that the all of the events of the game that the Thalmor play a part in are mirrored in the actions that Auri-el took against Shor. Auri-el usurped the power and name of Akatosh, the dragon, similar to the Thalmor who puppet the Empire against the Stormcloaks.

Maybe the Ehlnofey didn't have humanoid shapes during the Dawn era. The Aedra probably could freely choose their shapes like the Daedra Princes can, and the Aedra only choose to appear like their followers in later eras instead of animal shapes. The Reachmen worship the Aspects of Hircine which are very similar to the Atmoran animal totems. This might be a connection from back before the Wandering Ehlnofey split into the Atmorans, Nedes, and Yokudans.
@richardproper8682 Anos atrás
Also worth noting, in addition to just having a hawk as her "Symbol", the Khajiiti interpretation of Kyne, Khynarthi's form is actually that of a great bird, the Island of Khynarthi's Roost being named for being the one place she rested, in the boughs of the great tree on the island, in her first flight around the world.

This completely makes sense, especially everything about Whiterun screaming Kyne being their patron goddess. I mean, yes, there is a Shrine to Talos and a crazy priest screaming at the top of his lungs the love that Talos gives to all mankind...but that is the exception in Whiterun, the heart of Skyrim. From the Temple of Kynareth, to the names of the city's districts, to the fact that even Balgruuf himself references Kynareth in a protective prayer to the Dragonborn as he/she takes off on Odahviing's back to Skuldafn...everything in Whiterun is for Kyne/Kynareth. So it even makes sense that the Skyforge was hers, as well. Also, I love the fact that Whiterun and Dragonsreach was based on Edoras from Lord of the Rings. Whiterun Hold feels so very much like Rohan. And the Horselords of the Riddermark would be proud to see that Whiterun's symbol is of their beloved equine friends. Also, in old Pagan societies, the color yellow, which is the color of Whiterun guard uniforms and their shields, was the color of air in elemental magic. Simple perfection. Everything fits together so succinctly.

@blindknight6623 Anos atrás
A good video as always nate. My curiosity has me now though. "If" the skyforge is used to represent the hawk goddess kyne. What of the underforge whom has unknown origins also, but is currently being used as the companions site for their blood rituals for the "curse of lycanthropy" but, the circle members describe the area of the underforge as an ancient place attuned with the moon and lord hircine. But, that is what they say in the companions. If we take into account the lore of lorkhan (shor) he is split into two moons masser and secunda. Lunar forge and underforge are both attuned to the moon. Whilst the skyforge is attuned to well the sky.? Idk just always found it very interesting.
@wren7195 Anos atrás
Beautiful thought and insight for a blind knight my friend. Also, Kyne is a deity closely linked with the wilds and the natural world, whereas Hircine seems to represent the more beastly and bloodthirsty side of nature, and as a Daedra is almost in direct conflict with Kyne/"her version of wildness." It's possible that the Lunar Forge and the Underforge were both originally tuned to the Bodies of Lorkhan and mirrored the Sky of Kyne (One moon further away, the other opposite/beneath the Skyforge)... but were later usurped by Hircine and/or his followers. Perhaps they sought to desecrate such a shrine to Kyne and her spouse, but incapable of destroying such a relic as the Skyforge they could only pervert the Underforge. Indeed, as the lycanthropy was introduced to the Companions by the witches who were direct followers of Hircine, it's possible that was done on purpose to corrupt the shrine of their rival deity. What better way than to trick the Companions into being forced to follow/adapt to Hircine's vision of the Wilds, right beneath the shadow of the great bird itself. Pleasure to meet and speak with you friend. Be safe and well

*Thanks for the shout out* The referenced comment: The Skyforge was created during the Dawn War by Hircine and Kyne (The Hawk) to equip Lorkhan and the Wandering Ehlnofey against Auri-El and the Old Ehlnofey. After the death of Lorkhan, there was a schism between the Wandering Ehlnofey with the proto-Nedes going to the Reach with Hircine and the proto-Nords going to Atmora with Kyne. The Skyforge remains behind as a relic of a forgotten alliance. Evidence of the Hircine/Kyne alliance: *The Skyforge of the Hawk (Kyne) and the Underforge of Hircine share an ancient site that the descendents of Old Ehlnofey feared into the Merethic era. *In Khajii tales, Hircine allies himself with Khenarthi (alongside Azurah) to slay the elven god Y'ffer. *Both the Nords and Reachmen consider themselves followers of Shor/Lorkh -- even if they don't acknowledge one another. *Kyne's chosen son is Morihaus, a man-beast.

@blakev.4540 Anos atrás
Yes. The elves were afraid of the hawk, kyne. An enemy of their ancestors, the old elnhofey.
@@kingofstrangeness7014 To summarize - The Ehlnofey were at the bottom of the totem pole of the gods (to the point that names of individual Ehlnofey are no longer known except to Druids or other worshippers of local nature spirits) that created Nirn (the Aedra, or ancestors), and became temporary, having to either merge with the world to survive or live on through their children. The Wandering Ehlnofey are the ancestors of men and giants, called such because they had to *wander* the surface of Nirn before finding Aldmeris, home of the Old Ehlnofey, ancestors of elves and Khajiit (that's another story, but tl;dr Wood Elves are more closely related to Khajiit than they are to the High Elves or any other elven races). The Wandering Ehlnofey thought that they would be welcomed back with open arms by their brethren, as the races had still not split that much at this point. For whatever reason, whether because the Old Ehlnofey blamed Shor, High King of the Wandering Ehlnofey, for them becoming temporary, or because the Wandering Ehlnofey had forgotten many customs and looked disgusting, the Old Ehlnofey rejected them from Aldmeris. This started a war that goes by many names, my favorite of which is the War of Manifest Metaphors. Many of the lands which once existed on Nirn sunk during this war. The elven death god Xarxes was likely adopted as the mannish death god Orkey during this time. The end stages of this war resulted in the betrayal of Shor by the elven gods and the removal of His Heart, along with Kyne gathering the Wandering Ehlnofey to the Throat of the World in order to stabilize their forms. Entering fan speculation - the mannish gods and the elven gods would have both had places of power in this terrible war, with the Skyforge and the Lunar Forge being places of power for the mannish gods. The Snow Elves feared the Skyforge because it was a place of power for enemy gods, specifically Kyne, a terrible wind that had likely destroyed many of their ancestors. I hope that clears it up, at least somewhat. Ask as many questions as you like, if it didn't clear it up. Much of this lore comes from either "The Monomyth" or "The Anuad."

I feel like the Hircine connection with the Underforge was too easily dismissed. The moon is also a sign of Hircine, and the ancient Underforge seems too connected with werewolf rituals to be a coincidence. For crying out loud, there are ritual blood-chalices built into the ground! The Khajiit and Reachmen version of the Ehlnofey War highlights the possible connection between Lorkhan, Kynn, and Hircine. The Khajiit myth says Hircine and Kyne allied to defeat a corrupted Y'ffer, while the Reachmen believe Hircine took the mantle of Lorkhan after his fall during the Ehlnofey war. This could mean that Hircine was allied with the Wandering Ehlnofey before Lorkhan's defeat, so therfore Hircine could have contributed his power to the forges.

There should be no connection of the Skyforge with Hircine apart from some stupid Companions selling their souls to Daedra and then building a hole in a rock near their Hall. Underforge was not a part of the Skyforge, it was simply a hidey hole build by and for werepeople to skulk in.
@@badluck5647 I'd say yes. Hircine's deal had the companions carve out a stone area beneath the Skyforge. Then Hircine's power manifested in the blood chalice thing appearing in the center. Or the Nords carved it too and Hircine blessed it. The whole darned ritual might be powered by leeching off the Skyforge.

@@kyltredragmire4939 You are going with secret construction site with no body noticing tons of stone rubble being removed from a historical landmark by people who no experience building anything? You think makes more sense than an ancient site having a an ancient compartment?
@@badluck5647 I guess I just don't see why it has to be secret. Who in Whiterun is going to stop the companions? They don't have to explain why the project is being done. Even if it was secret, in the real world huge excavation projects happened in secret all the time. The Vatican, Westminister palace, even Washington DC all have vast networks of tunnels that are basically unknown to the commoner. The youtuber Collin Furze dug a huge tunnel last year and kept it completely secret until his first video on it came out. He's just one British guy. If he can do that, I can't see why elite soldiers can't dig one little stone room.

Me over here: the dwarves are awfully quiet about this forge and also Zenithar...he's always mention around Kyne. And that a lot of merchants,miners,blacksmith and etc associates with him. Plus, He's kind of the blacksmith of the Aedra.
@TangoKittyOmicron Anos atrás
The theory I've always had is that you have the Lunar Forge which crafts weapons that gain abilities under a full moon, and then you have the Skyforge (which might represent the sun) that creates a stronger steel, and although I haven't been able to prove it, I feel like Skyforge weapons accept and enhance burning enchantments (targets burn/targets on fire take more damage), and Lunar weapons seem to enhance Absorb Health/Stamina/Magica enchantments, as well as give a few more seconds to use soul trap. What's more, we have within this world werewolves created by Hircine,, and vampires by Molag Bal. Vampires are particularly weak to fire and sunlight, and werewolves are weak to draining poisons/spells. Another interesting bit of lore is that about every 1,000 years, Hircine returns to the "earth" so to speak to have a massive hunt, where both people and animals become the prey. Now, if I were a rival of Hircine's, I may want to balance the playing field because during those hunts, his followers are very powerful in their werewolf form, and their prey would barely stand a chance fighting against them. Also if I were a rival Daedric prince, I probably wouldn't be happy if I saw another prince obtaining and holding onto more power and glory than I have, and therefore I might provide the people with a means of balancing the odds. Therefore Vampires who frequent the night would be working the Lunar Forge to make weapons against werewolves, and during the day werewolves would be making weapons against the vampires.

You can get the Lunar forge enchantment by disenchanting a lunar forge weapon. This enchantment can be applied like any other enchantment afterwards.

@bdizzle3014 Anos atrás
I was always bummed that they didn't do something with that. I think it would have been so awesome to have each forge add a different enhancement specific to either weapon or traits. The Lunar Forge could add a magic ability only active during a full moon and even more magical during a blood moon. Ahhh, could've been real cool.
@bjmaguire6269 Anos atrás
Interesting that Mer and Men both seems to worship the same Gods now. At least the High Elves do, hence the religious conflict in Skyrim. Given the hints that the Dark Elves tend to worship Diedra. I would say that indicates the High Elves and Dark Elves probably split from each other after the defeat of the ancestors of the Mer. With the High Elves adopting the Gods of the victors, and the Dark Elves remaining true to the Old Gods. Interesting to speculate. Thank you so much for another great thoughtful and thought provoking production!
@TheoRae8289 Anos atrás
Actually I think that's canon. The Dark Elves look the way they do because of Daedric tampering (IIRC it was a punishment for crossing Azura) and were originally High Elves.

I like some of the interesting forges of Skyrim, and how they try to differ themselves from each other. We have the Sky Forge, and the Lunar Forge.

Then, I get the urge to begin again, and choose something different, like the race, or character, and start a new game again. It is amazing how different things can turn out. I too, had known about this forge, but never had I put so many clues together like Nate has. What a fascinating video, and I thank you, Nate, for doing it. Knowing some backgrounds on the adventures, further allows me to feel as though I am right there, inside the game. Wow, so well made by Bethesda, and I am glad to know there are others who enjoy it like I do, but I am happy there are those who delve in to it further, helping those like me understand more, making for a better experience.
