You like to dance close to the fire, don’t you?
I’ve been bouncing around in Elder Scrolls Online the past few weeks, mostly in Skyrim, running from harrowstorm to harrowstorm and fighting off pesky witches trying to conjure the apocalypse or something. I’m not sure.
But then I started thinking about the old days of Morrowind and Oblivion, and I realized: I don’t remember any Nords in those games. At all. It just never registered to me that Nords existed until Elder Scrolls V.
They were there. I know they were. But it’s like some kind of blindspot. Like I Endless-Sunshined myself and erased all thought of pre-Skyrim Nords from my mind.
So I searched YouTube and, well, I stumbled upon this: The Morrowind Nord Song (How Does It Feel?). It’s bizarre, something straight out of the Shivering Isles. An avant-garde experimental waking nightmare that’s…actually kind of catchy.
Oh, well. Back to the witches.
