The Pig Children

by Tyston Bane

Discusses the history of the Orcish threat in the Iliac Bay


No one -- not the oldest Dark Elf of Mount Dagoth-Ur or the Ancient Sage of Solitude himself -- can recall a time when the Orc did not ravage our fair Tamriel. Whatever foul and pestilent Daedra of Oblivion conjured them up could scarcely have created a more constant threat to the well-being of the civilized races of Tamriel than the obnoxious Orc.

Orcs are thankfully easy to recognize from other humanoids by their size -- commonly forty pertans in height and fifteen thousand angaids in weight -- their brutal pig-like features, and their stench. They are consistently belligerent, morally grotesque, intellectually moronic, and unclean. By all rights, the civilized races of Tamriel should have been able to purge the land of their blight eras ago, but their ferocity, animal cunning, and curious tribal loyalty have made them inevitable as leeches in a stagnant pool.

Tales of Orcish barbarity precede written record. When Jastyaga wrote of the Order of Diagnas joining the armies of Daggerfall and Sentinel "to hold at bay the wicked Orcs in their foul Orsinium fastness... and burn aught in cleansing flame" in 1E950, she assumed that any reader would be aware of the savagery of the Orcs. When the siege was completed thirty years later, after the death of many heroes including Gaiden Shinji, and the destruction of Orsinium scattered the Orcish survivors throughout the Wrothgarian Mountains, she further wrote, "The free peoples rejoiced for that their ancient fell enemy was dispersed into diverse parts." Obviously, the Orcs had been terrorizing the region of the Iliac Bay at least since the early years of the First Era.

猪童

  

  泰斯顿·班恩 著


  已经没有人能够回忆起兽人蹂躏我们那美丽的泰姆瑞尔大陆之前的时代了,包括生活在大衮山脉中最年长的黑精灵和隐居的古代智者。那些来自湮灭的丑恶的魔族对泰姆瑞尔大陆上文明种族的威胁还不及肮脏的兽人。

  和其他类人种族相比,兽人更容易被认出来。我们可以通过他们的外形很容易就能辨认出他们:兽人大约高40佩坦,重15000安加德;他们粗暴的外貌和像猪一样的特征,身上散发的阵阵恶臭,那所谓好战的传统,还有那怪异的性格以及那低下的智力和他们那肮脏的习性。泰姆瑞尔大陆上的文明种族们应该联合起来一起净化这片土地,去除那些兽人带来的肮脏时代。他们凶残的本性,像动物那样的狡诈,还有那可笑的“对部落的忠诚”使他们像臭水潭里的水蛭一样让人恶心。

  早在文献的记录之前就有关于兽人暴行的传说。贾斯泰加曾经用文字描述了在第一纪元950年,迪尔加纳加入匕首雨和哨兵城的军队,占据了海湾地区,“那些邪恶的兽人在他们那丑陋的奥辛纽姆城堡中....用圣火把他们都烧成灰烬”,她知道读者们对兽人的野蛮都有所耳闻。30年后,联军终于攻破了奥辛纽姆,但是许多英雄都在战斗中死去了,包括盖盾·辛吉。奥辛纽姆的毁灭使得兽人的幸存者只能零散地分布在沃斯加里安山脉上。她又写道,“兽人部落因此被分成了零星的几个部分,那些被解放的人们对而此感到非常高兴。”很显然,从第一纪元早期开始,伊利亚克海湾地区就一直受到兽人的威胁。
