Skyrim: 5 Unsettling Mysteries You May Have Missed in The Elder Scrolls 5 (Part 5) – Skyrim Secrets

Skyrim is a game with a variety of places to visit, stories to hear and quests to complete. In a world as large as the one offered by The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, there’s surely going to be a few things that don’t add up or make perfect sense. It’s these mysteries and unsolved curiosities that capture our imagination as we try to search for potential theories and explanations. So today we’ll be taking a look at five more theories you may have missed in The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim.

    The most unsettling thing in skyrim for me is that 4ft tall spiders exist and spit at you and then probably eat you. I mean really think about that how creepy would that be in real life


    If Nelker is listed as Balgruf's brother it could be possible Balgruf's parents had a child late in life a passed away shortly after due to age or illness. So Balgruf took him in and raised him as a son until the time was right to tell him. I actually have a family member who was raised in the same scenario, so this was the first thing that came to mind.

    "I think, therefore I am." - René DescartesWhich reminds me of a joke:René Descartes walks into a bar. The bartender asks, "Hey, René, would you like a beer?" to which René replies, "I think not" and POOF!... he disappears.Going along with this reasoning, mayhaps dear Septimus gained all knowledge in the universe and no longer needed to think about anything ever again. So... POOF! =)

    Lydia is probably the mother hence why Balgruff dumps her off on the DB at the earliest possibility

    Don't forget, Mephala is the daedric prince of lies. It's not out of the question that she would lie to Nelkir to get him to work for her.

    Nate. Ate you getting enough sleep? Are you eating? Drinking enough water? Just asking because you're pumping these videos out like they are nothing, one after another. Please make sure you're taking care of yourself. You're one of my favorite YouTubers and as much as I love the content, your health is more important.

  • Jonathan Davis

    Clearly, the entire purpose of nirnroot is to annoy anyone playing Elder Scrolls games. :|

  • illid4nstormr4ge

    What if septimus was undead all along, he does have a weird raspy voice and when you kill raised undead they turn to dust so when Hermy Mora no longer needed him he simply removed the necro spell

  • UnknownSoldier9865

    It's simple. Septimus Signus did not survive the Thanos snap!

  • Kyle Pollard

    I believe the book killed him in the end. The Dragon Scrolls affect people who read them greatly, so why can't a book ff immense knowledge do the same? I mean, the English translation of it is " Knowledge to Infinity". It takes the Moth Priests years to prepare for reading the Elder Scrolls, so maybe someone weak or unprepared who starts reading the Oghma Infinium can literally die from trying to read the book's secrets, or maybe he was "unworthy" of reading it and paid the price.

  • Tom Lees

    The theory that Septimus Signus zero-summed is a good one, but there is one hole in it that becomes apparent if we apply it to the gameplay at face value - if a person in TES zero-summed, then the fact that they zero-summed would also be zero-summed, ensuring that they never existed at all and there is absolutely no trace of them left in history. Which would suggest that said person would be erased from all memory as well. And yet, even when Septimus dies, Hermaeus Mora still references him by saying, "Septimus was a useful tool for unleashing it (the Ogmha Infinium)".One could argue that since the Daedra and Aedra are gods, they would still be omnipotent enough to retain the memory of anyone who is zero-summed, or removed from existence in another way.

  • Dan Scott

    I thougt the old man died due to a last ditch dwarven defense measure to protect the book. That book was obviously locked away to keep the world safe from it, and it makes sense to have a form of trap located around the actual book itself for when the door is breached. Thats why Herma Mora didnt have you kill him, he knew about the dwarven defensive trap and let him trip it instead of you. I thought this because I remember turning him down to help him and he basically said "STFU I know things you dont and tell people only what I need them to know so that they do my bidding whether they want to or not, now go do my bidding mortal" and I was like damn chill Herma.

  • tyler bandin

    The fourth spot is a reference to another elder scrolls game called battle spire where you actually talk to an ideal master and the potion are because if you go in and not undead you can not regain health so you have to have potions or soul husk


    Probably because Nelkir was adopted.

  • Banzarro

    chim and zero sum don't have anything to do with "place in the universe" if you realise that you are a figment of someones imagination and accept the fact that you don't exist you stop existing, if you have the strength of self to scream 'I am' into a universe telling you that 'you are not' you get chim, that's why chim is described as an inherently selfish thing, you have to be self serving enough that you are capable of ignoring the fact that you are nothing, furthermore Zero Sum isn't simply being erased, it's being selectively and RETROACTIVELY erased, your physical self no longer and never existed, but anything you did or made is still present, the best analogy would be cutting a person out of a painting, you can easily tell that someone was there, but you can't ever know who they were

  • Matthew Sly

    This is like the TWENTITH time I've commented this........ butttttttt: PLEASE SHOW US YOUR LOAD ORDER!! Your game looks so DANG AMAZING!!!

  • Lewis Wotherspoon

    I think Mephala lied to him because she is the deadra of lies

  • Aleks Sierżant

    The theory about Septimus being zero-summed is unfortunately not true. Zero-summing isn't simply erasing something from exsistance, it's making it actually never exist, like what Talos did to jungles in Cyrodiil. Septimus, for example, wrote a book called "Ruminations on the Elder Scrolls" and you can still find the book with his signature after the quest.

  • Mhadra

    Neither women are there... Because he killed both of them with the Ebony Blade! Dun dun duuuun

  • Lucy Price

    It could be a possibility that the two women that Balgruuf slept with died during childbirth. That’s my theory.

  • TheNN

    I do disagree on one part. You are correct that yes, Daedric Princes cannot normally interact with the world. However, that is also the point of their artifacts. they can act THROUGH them. For example, during the Dragonborn DLC, when you bring a Black Book to the Skaal Elder, Hermeaus Mora IMPALES him with tentacles, and it seems as if he is indeed acting directly through it.So it could just very well be that ole Herma Mora simply disposed of Septimus once he was no longer useful.

  • Lake Fish

    Alternative to 0-summing: He got to see wherever the Dwemer are, but they had a defense system for anyone trying to come through - so they actually disintegrated Septimus, so he couldn't join them or tell anyone else. Or he DID join, and the "burning to ash" was some kind of teleportation.

  • Trisepta

    3:39 After reading 'Letter from Maven' on the table in The Bannered Mare, I always thought that the skeleton was supposed to be Christophe Bartlet.

  • David Cheney

    What if Septimus died when he made his blood mix with the other elves to trick the lock box into thinking he was a Dwemer was pulled into where the Dwemer went to?He tricked not only the box, but also whatever pulled the Dwemer out of Nirn and when he opened the box set off a beacon for that force?Just spit balling an idea, but maybe.

  • Alex Crnojacki

    The whole elder scrolls is a dream??? That is taken from old Slavic mythos. Where the whole world we live in is created as a dream by a sleeping god named Svarog. And when Svarog wakes up, that will be the end of the world.


    the unsettling thing is that you haven't been arrested for murdering people to death

  • Køltira Memeweaver

    Do the Möth Priests love lamps?

  • MaximalElder26

    I always assumed that what happened with Septimus was that Hermius had used his power to extend Septimus's life so he could open the box. Basically stopped his body from aging. We don't know how long Septimus had been there. Could have been years. Could have been centuries. Once the box was open and he read the book Hermius lifted his influence from Septimus and his body rapidly aged tell he became a pile of dust.

  • Andrew Turnbull

    You can find nirnroot on the prydwin fallout 4. aka experimental plant in the science area.

  • Andrew Chapman

    Never occurred to me that the dwarven lockbox is a non-euclidian space. That makes me even more impressed by the dwemer. Neat.

  • Outlaw Hazz

    You can always say skyrim is big in every language

  • The Next Hokage

    There is nothing more unsettling than knowing there are still 5 more things we didn't know about Skyrim.

  • Tom Lees

    In regards to Septimus Signus' death, I believe there is some TES lore which mentions something about mortals needing to be worthy enough to be in possession of a Daedric artefact. So, it could be that Septimus simply wasn't worthy enough to read the Ogmha Infinium, thus the artefact itself destroyed him. Hence why the Dragonborn is able to pick it up and read it.If this idea of worthiness surrounding Daedric artefacts wasn't enforced, then Septimus could have potentially just picked up the book and read it for himself with no consequences. However, given the context we are given in the quest, Hermaues Mora isn't interested in Septimus anymore, so it could be that he just killed the man so the Dragonborn could take the book after all the work he/she did.

  • MajorMoron

    Finds a corpse in the soulcairn with a handful of potions and wonders : why so many potions?Bro, i usually run around with at least 50 ultimate potions, even in endgame when I hardly need them. This guy was just a npc who was a bit cleverer than the others, realizing how useful potions can be to prolong ones life when venturing into the unknown... Others should follow his example

  • Brandon Dunn

    Did he mention "the world burns before me" or something like that? What's a burned world that we also know has connections to the elder scrolls through Nirn Root? Did he see the world of fallout?

  • Chowder soup

    i have a question Nate how big is skyrim?

  • Alfonso Corona H

    So then... septimus realized he is in a videogame...then his body died but his data trascended and now he is one with everything yet, he is nothing.

  • Wand Maker

    Septimus's death was a reference to Indiana Jones and the crystal skull when the Russian lady gets all the knowledge and dies. The line said is also similar

  • B0RD3R M4N

    What if the Wood Elf with the Axe chased down the female with the Dagger for her Treasure map. He murdered her to death but the female with the Dagger managed to land a few blows on the male. The Male tried to get help for his wounds, leaving behind the map but succumbed shortly thereafter.

  • i couldnt think of a username

    Who wants to hear a joke?Fallout 4 has good map design

  • Salavast1

    I think Septimus' death has to do with why the Dwemer disappeared. After all, they were experimenting with the Heart of Lorkan, and one day they vanished. As explained in a video about achieving "Chime", a Godhood-like state, through the Heart of Lorkan, there are two results. One is achieving "Chime", and the second is being Zero-Summed; being completely erased from the time, having never existed in the first place. (Paradox theory is irrelevant to my current point.) Septimus' last words, about seeing another world, could very well be where the Dwemer went, or something of the sort. Since he used the blood from every still living elf to obtain "Dwemer Blood", which he injects into himself, the forces that took the Dwemer away also claimed him.

  • Diablo Pale

    Someone may have commented this already, in which case, credit where credit is due, but for those interested in the Oghma Infinium's lore, it was in fact written by Xarxes - the scribe of Auri-El (I believe he also drafted the plans for Mundus, though I could be very wrong there), who was granted the knowledge by Hermaeus Mora. The book was leant to Mehrunes Dagon when Dagon needed to teach his puppet Mankar Camoran how to access and shape a plane of Oblivion (opening the Oblivion gates and creating the isle of Paradise in TES IV). Hence, Dagon's book is titled the Mysterium Xarxes.

  • Krisztian Geiger

    4:11I just guessing.. is that the infamous Dyatlov Pass Incident as easter egg?

  • Maniacally Sinister

    If you go to the path near The Throat of The World (preferably near the first troll in the area where you need to use the Clear Skies shout) and use the Aura Whisper shout (the one that allows you to detect life from a distance) you'll find a body hidden within the mountainside, either buried or maybe just a glitch, but the shout is supposed to detect life, so this body that's hiding in the ground is still registered as alive.

  • hotshot 57

    Intro after running out of adjectives: "Skyrim is a.... fat..."

  • darkblade190

    So, concubines and mistresses were pretty common place historically, especially for rulers/men of power until relatively recently. Or the mother could've died shortly before the kid was conceived, and he wouldn't be old enough to know differently. Weren't Nirnroots introduced in Oblivion as a nonrespawning resource? If so, the sound was probably just the devs making them more noticeable, and kept in Skyrim for continuity. Perhaps the skeleton in the soul cairn was a worshiper of the undead dragon (forget his name) seeing as he's got a dragon priest dagger. The potions and scrolls might've been offerings.

  • Eolhin Forest

    To my thinking, Balgruf's children are not that hard to explain... He has a first wife, she dies in childbirth leaving him with an infant son. He marries again very soon after, to provide a mother to his infant son. (Who has no memory of his birth-mother.) He has two more children with his second wife. Then something happens to her. Skyrim is a dangerous place. She could have fallen victim to any number of perfectly normal hazards, or Balgruf's family could be cursed, by a blade whispering in the dark, and planting dark thought that lead to dark deeds. Either way, someone remarrying while a child is too young to remember it is not at all uncommon.

  • James Parker

    Another small detail you may have missed:You know how when you enter castle volkihar for the first time there are a bunch of vampires feeding on corpses? Well they aren't corpses. They're still alive, and will moan if you talk to them. That's right they have to lay there while being slowly eaten alive. Isn't Skyrim wonderful?

  • Luci _

  • Jeremy Landon

    Or maybe the jarl has been happily married twice and both his spouses died shortly after giving birth (the first wife after her second child and the second wife after her first.) Then the jarl wanted to make sure his kids didn't treat each other differently. Then mephala wanted to cause a divide among the siblings and let them know about it?

  • Rachel Rogers

    If they're brothers then it could have been a case of eldest child raising youngest sibling. Balgruf doesn't have to have had an affair if he's not the father.

  • CPT. Whiskers

    Maybe the kid was his first son and after his mom died Bargraf remarried. It seems likely bc the kid is a lot more mature than the others

  • Nathaniel Goritski

    Hermaeus said he killed him because he outgrew his usefulness

  • Icecreamassassin

    The septimus one is interesting because in the CK it refers to all elements of that scenario as "ascend" (animation) and "disappear" or "vanish" never "disintegrate" even though there are spell effects that do that, so clearly something otherworldly occurs to him that is not centered around his destruction. The ash pile however to me indicates he was physically destroyed but not Zero Summed. With Zero Summing you simply cease to exist and the pile remaining behind is evidence that he did exist, but I think that is simply so you can loot anything you missed from him, so it's a mechanical work around and if he did Zero Sum, I think that they don't think people would read that much into it.

  • Joe Boe

    That skeleton under Dragonreach is one of Maven Black-Briar's victims. You can find a note in the inn, called Letter From Maven. You can also find another letter in Maven's home called Letter From Christophe. Christophe Bartlet is the skeleton under Dragonreach. If you read both of the letters it seemed like they had a disagreement. The "Letter From Christophe" also notes that he was at the Bannered Mare waiting for Maven to speak to him. She did, but it was not what he was expecting.

  • Tom

    OOOOH OOOHUSE the word "Gargantuan"For the next video, that will spice it up

  • Josh Hearn

    Use the word THICC to describe How large Skyrim is for the next video!!!!

  • Gamble Rambles

    Actually It could make sense that the Ogma infium is like the elder scrolls and only a dragon born with a strong mind can survive seeing such intense knowledge this dose make some lore friendly sense right?

  • ZorroDood

    Do people still mention Septimus, after he desintegrates? If yes, then he didn't zero-sum.

  • Tom Lees

    A Dragon Priest's dagger is a very unique and somewhat rare choice of weapon to just randomly place as part of a little Easter egg, could this guy have been a Dragon Priest himself? Maybe Khonariik? Or, like Miraak, a Dragon Priest who wound up in a plane of Oblivion? (in this case, the Soul Cairn as opposed to Apocrypha).Maybe he wanted to ascend and join/become one with the Ideal Masters. Maybe this guy was once a Dragonborn, as just to the left facing the entrance to the Boneyard, there is actually a damaged Word Wall that Durnehviir will sometimes sit atop of.Or, perhaps both. We all know that the Dragonborn has the ability to absorb a dragon's soul upon its death. And we also know that the Ideal Masters are constantly hungry for souls. so, that skeleton could have once been a Dragonborn seeking to join the Ideal Masters and forever feast on the souls of dragons. There are numerous dragon skeletons and skulls scattered across the Soul Cairn after all as well, plus the Keepers wear Dragonplate armour and wield Dragonbone weapons, so could they be Dragonborn too? Who knows.
