    "The force in Abah's Landing is led by Chief Inspector Rhanbiq, who has the worst sort of reputation: one of principle."
    Damn it ZOS, why you do this? You forbid us to join the Iron Wheel and then you taunt us with this.
    Ghrimn of Elder Wood is also one of principle!

    I note there's no 'next time, so-and-so will be answering questions about XYZ, submit your questions here'. :\ Come on ZOS! You've got a shiny new Trial coming out, don't you want us to ask questions about the dro-m'Athra? Or tell us about some of the fun things commonly smuggled through Abah's Landing? Or skip info on the new DLC if you want to build suspense and bring the priestess of Dibella back for Heart's Day?

    We had only six days to ask questions, that was very few. :'( Even fewer for non English speakers, as our questions had to be translated first before being handled by the lore team, I guess. Usually there are two weeks between two episodes of the Loremaster's Archives. Had I known, I wouldn't have taken a few days to rephrase and expand my questions. :/ I think I will start now to prepare my questions for the Dark Brotherhood and the Gold Coast, and I will write them in English next time.

    This was a nice read though. I hope we won't have to wait for such a long time before the next archives. I like them a lot.

    I agree, the dro-m'Athra are intriguing. I guess they're some Namira-aligned Daedra ? Maybe Ectoplasm Atronachs or Shadow Atronachs or something alike? Or a new kind of Daedric NPCs... (Which means a new kind of crafting style soon?)

    Main and crafter: A Breton magicka templar named Erwann Sorril
    Alt 1: A Bosmer sorcerer named Tuuneleg

    They also didn't tell us who we were supposed to write to for this one. :\ I was overly optimistic and wrote to Cariel.

    I gather the dro-m'Athra are corrupted Khajiiti spirits, but we still don't know much about them. Can they be un-'bent'? Do they age and die like normal Khajiit or are they more like ghosts?

    Lady Cinnabar on point as always! These are such a delight to read, and I like how there's coordination among stories. It really feels like a complete world with a tangle of interesting stories, instead of every Loremaster's Archive being a stand-alone snippet. Your lore team is doing an impeccable job!

    Agreed !!!
    And given the time these were "stopped" and "resumed", I suspect the author to be no less than @ZOS_JessicaFolsom ;-)

    They are the Bent Cats, bad spirits (essentially (un)dead as far as I know). And yes, they're associated with Namiira (the Khajiiti version of Namira). Some base game quests and books expand a bit on this. If you haven't done so, look for the Sathram Plantation in Stonefalls, which includes one such quest.

    Is there an updated Tamriel map available that shows the location of this area?
