  • Cipher's Midden The Ciphers of the Eye consist of mortals from Nirn, personally selected and invited to Apocrypha by Hermaeus Mora. They become the caretakers and curators for the vast amount of knowledge that constantly rains down upon the realm from the rest of reality. No one knows why Mora decided to entrust mortals with this mountainous task, but soon the Ciphers grew from just a few to a small army of catalogers, researchers, and librarians. They created the settlement of Cipher's Midden and established a headquarters of sorts for their members. Cipher's Midden is both a shelter and a place of learning in what can be a hostile and unrelenting land.

A Hidden Fate

Conclave of Fate

A Calamity of Fate

Leramil the Wise in Necrom Bindery

Blightcrown completed Master Shelren's rite and Vaermina entered Apocrypha. The Prince of Dreams' presence has disrupted the workings of the realm as she hunts for the lost memory. I need to find a way to stop her from reaching it.

An Unhealthy Fate

Leramil the Wise in Leramil's Study

Torvesard gained the first part of the lost memory, but two more remain. We need to stop Blightcrown and the corruption that weakens Apocrypha, and we need to find Vaernina, hidden in Master Shelreni's body, before she locates the remaining secrets.
