Sometimes I have fun making up my own lore for the Elder Scrolls universe. I thought it would be more fun to share my ideas with others. I was surprised when I couldn't find an already existing thread where people share their ideas for new lore. My favorite made up lore, that I made up, is the Elder Hist. In the center of Black Marsh, guarded by an army of Shadowscales, giant wamasu, and swarms upon swarms of giant insects, lies the greatest secret of the Argonian race: the Elder Hist. The Elder Hist is the most ancient of all the Hist. Some even believe that the Elder Hist sprouted at the very birth of Tamriel. The Elder Hist is also among the wisest beings in all of Nirn. Time and again its counsel has saved the entire Argonian race from destruction. It is even believed that the failure of the Dragons to extend their influence to Black Marsh was thanks to the power of the Elder Hist. Despite its importance, few people, even among Argonians who live outside its protected valley know of its existence. And there is a very good reason for that. Should the Elder Hist die, all the Hist will die.
