The following text is in character anti-dunmer propaganda written by Xhuvara in an attempt to rally argonians against morrowind. It is unknown how true this story is. This was written before the declaration of the Ebonheart Pact...

Our magnificent expanse of tranquil beauty is more ancient than any who dare to ravage its harmonious grasp. Our land is a wondrous home to a myriad of diverse life forms, from the menacing fleshflies to the monstrous wamasu. Of course there is our revered Hist from which our humble people have been granted life and the chance to prosper. And prosper we have. We out of all the inhabitants have been the ones to tame and become one with this lush land. We have created grand temples to modest huts. We have crafted an intricate and delicate culture rivalled by none and regarded with mystery by all. We, the Saxhleel, the people of the root, were born with humble beginnings and soon began to thrive and our culture began to bloom in the glorious gem that is our swamp. Well my egg-brethren, our mighty people face an enemy. This is cruel and ruthless enemy who will show no mercy to us. These dryskins, these foreigners are barbarous and want nothing but our suffering. They torture our kin in heartless and un-speakable ways that to even think of it fills me with anger. And you should feel that anger too! The dryskins show no remorse as they burst into our peaceful land, obliterate our homes and massacre us by the thousands. Those who are unlucky enough, may the dread father watch over them, are cast into a tyrannical life of suffering and servitude in which they are tortured and exploited. These are cowardly dryskins are known as "dunmer" and they wish to dominate and supress us and our mighty culture. Us! The people of the root! We are mighty and they are cowards, we have the honoured Hist and the will of Sithis the bringer of change, the dread father on our side! Therefore we must take a stand against these filthy dryskins who WILL slughter your loved ones or even worse, force upon them the yoke of oppression and suffering.


I, Xhuvara, and my courageous Shadow Fangs have already struck against the tyrants. The light was dim and the water was high. No sound could be heard until the veil of silence was cut by the reckless thundering sound of feet. Many, many feet. Marching cockily into our beloved home. There were easily five thousand of those merciless dryskins that fly the banner of their homeland's "great" house dres. They were all clad in alien armour and possessed exotic weapons that looked ever so ridiculous. They brought with them ominous chains that seemed un ending in length, the chains were meant for us but... We made sure they would not worm their way any further into our precious swamp. Our numbers were at best eight hundred armed egg brothers and sisters, each with a fearsome spear, sturdy shield and an exquisite master piece of blade work forged in our people's stunning style. As the dark column of dryskins moved ever deeper into our marsh of unpredictable danger we watched from the shadows, ever silent, surveying the prey as the formidable serpent does. Then... SMASH! Our valiant warriors burst out from the shadows and thrust themselves into the oblivious mass of hate and cowardice. The seemingly endless line of dryskins shatters and crumbles, debris flying everywhere. Then our unrelenting phalanx closed in to cage those, animals, in to a ring of slaughter. They didn't even put up a fight, they were so awestruck at our finesse in battle that they knew to fight would only lead to one outcome. Death. Our ferocious circle of heroic warriors cut each and every one of the invaders down until there was no room for their bodies to litter our sacred ground.

When the fight of epic proportions, we found we had lost none and they had lost all. They were annihilated while our gallant heroes stood triumphant and ready to defend us once again. As we marched victoriously off to return to our duty our home. The earth on which we walk, the water in which we swim. The impenetrable swamp took them. The swamp shall continue to take them. Have you dreamed of being a hero? Do you love your home? Do you hate those villainous dryskins? The Shadow Fangs will take on board any of our egg-brethren who want and will purge this evil tyranny from our lush borders. We will make mighty Argonia safe, for the saxhleel, for the Hist and for Sithis!


Death to Queen Ayrenn!
Down with the covenant!
Glory to the pact!

Really, really cool I think this will be the start of a trend across alliances, (it definitely made me want to make one at least)


Gone to a better MMO, soz guys, it was fun.

I wanted to try and make something original and non-time consuming, thanks for reading!
