    Really wasn't digging those blatant Discworld ripoffs.

    I liked them. It wasn't subtle, true, but they seemed to fit Riften quite well.

    There did seem to be a few more typos than I remember seeing in this before, but otherwise as enjoyable as ever, even if it doesn't really seem to have moved the story on much at this stage

    I finally got around to reading this over the last week. I'll echo everyone else and say it's excellent and reads more like a novel than fanfiction. As someone without knowledge of Elder Scrolls I frequently had to hit up the wiki but not so much that it was a detriment to the experience. I don't mind the slow pacing and exploration of lore and the world, it's all new to me and quite interesting.

    Since it's in my mind now are there other Elder Scroll fics I might enjoy?

    I think that depends on how much you are willing to tolerate "game elements" (like limitless pockets, "skills" etc.) in your story because in my experience that is something that pretty much every single bigger ES story features. And none really match Dragon from Ash in the worldbuilding aspect since in the large majority of cases they simply copy the games (visuals).

    After a lengthy wait, it updated!

    Really looking forward to just kicking back and enjoying this. Can't say many stories have that effect on me.

    That was a quality update, although it doesn't seem to move the story forward significantly. The characters, yes, but not the story. Still awesome though.

    Spent all day yesterday reading this.

    Fabulous story. It makes me want to go play Skyrim.

    Velandrn is easily on the best OCs ever made.

    Finally got around to reading this after putting it off for ages, and man am I conflicted. On the one hand, I could have read this earlier but waiting meant I had that much more to read. Thanks @Newcomb for the rec and @Mishie for reminding me, though I put it off for who knows how long.

    This fic is to Elder Scrolls what Game of Champions is to Pokemon. It not only sets the standard and raises the bar, it takes it to heights that were previously thought unattainable. I have literally zero complaints. I love the lore, the character interactions, the action, the dialogue, the prose. This is the best of what fanfiction can be.

    5/5

    Edit: Didn't read the thread first, but the fact that other people compared it to Game of Champions doesn't surprise me a bit.
