This is the kind of detailing and productive mystification that has always been part of what makes the worlds of Tamriel feel alive and like the have an existence beyond the game. Just a body lying in the path on a side of a mountain near one of the Dark Anchors. A mage’s staff by its feet. That’s it. No note, no explanation, no associated quest. Just a little bit of world detailing that brings it alive with unexplained history.

Good to remember that everything does’t have to be goal-oriented, or resolved, or have a purpose or point.
