In America they were called Dime Novels, In England the term was Penny Dreadfuls; cheesy lurid sensationalized short books (sometimes more like pamphlets) sometimes loosely based on an actual person (allegedly Wild Bill Hickok had a gift for self promotion only loosely related to actual facts).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dime_novel

Most of the "books" we find in-game are pretty short or summaries or excerpts anyway - this could be interesting.

For months my group had referenced the totally imaginary adventures of "Domino Fae the Pirate Queen" Then the other day a friend threw out a suggestion that his newer character had read "Rythe Rendel and the Orc Maidens" about a dashing dunmer who rescued and .... frolicked with a pair of lovely orsimer sisters.

Thing is - one of our group has a character by that name and this was a seriously bastardized and sensationalized version of something that happened in-game. But it would make a great little lurid dime novel.

So if the tales of your character were fictionalized into an in-game dime novel - What would the title be?
Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella
Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (bosmer template) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm.
***
Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    Anyway:

    Dragonknight Llandris and the Witch of the Reach
    Dedicated Knight of the Order Draconis caught in the web of a Reachwoman who calls forth the souls of his dead foes to heal him. She leads him deep into the daedra infested ruined heart of the Imperial City - but is she truly an ally, or will she betray him?
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (bosmer template) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket

    On my way to work (I bike, so I have a while to think of completely weird things)

    Rythe Ryndel and the Serpent Queen's Serenade

    Sellistrix had paused in her deadly song; that was all he knew for a moment. He struggled to rise, head pounding, gaze unfocused, blood trickling from his nostrils. Her crimson-scaled form swayed before him, and as he slowly focused on her, he could see the amusement, the contempt in her expression. But she had paused, and that would be her last mistake. His eyes narrowed and he took a breath to begin his own song. Learned in the knightly order that had awarded him the dragon tattoo, fueled by the fiery rage that was his Velothi heritage.

    His song was fire.

    .

    edited to muck with the title. Still not entirely happy with it.
