In Tamriel, every house has a story.
Many are forgotten. Others subsumed. But the story of Honorhall Orphanage will not be among them.
It is the 201st year of the Fourth Era, and for the orphans of Riften, change is coming. Civil war, the ‘season unending’, has descended upon Skyrim. Jarl Laila Law-Giver plans a visit to her city’s famed orphanage as part of a bid to win hearts and minds. And in a dark corner of Honorhall, a boy from Windhelm broods over escape… and revenge.
Every house has a story.
You know Honorhall’s. You know the story of a boy and the Black Sacrament – of death brought to a cruel headmistress in the seat of her own power – perhaps even of a happy ending for her erstwhile subjects, in a manor by Lake Ilinalta or a Dwemer hall in the Reach.
But this is not that story.
This is the story of before, when the Jarl of Riften came to visit… and left behind her a house no longer the oubliette it had always seemed to be.
